Jinxed career.....

It was June, 1986.......
I had got the nod for admission to undergraduate course in Mathematics in Madras Christian College, one of the most reputed institutions of the city...of the country too.....
As luck would have it, I went there on June 30, a bank holiday!
I reutrned home to find an admission card for UG in B Sc Physics from AM Jain College affiliated to Madras University.....
The next day, discarding the admission in MCC, I went to AM Jain for the interview....
HOD, Physics Department, Prof JS asked me what was the charge of an electron......
I said it was minus 1.6 multiplied by 10 power minus 19 coulumbs....
I had scored 87% in Mahtematics, 85% in Chemistry and 59.5% in Physics in the Pre-University exams....
The HOD suggested I take Mathematics as my major.....
I was obsitante....
And what a costly mistake that turned out to be.....
That was the first major mistake in a jinxed career, a jinxed life....

Re: Jinxed career.....

I was a student of Physics....abysmally poor at physics, though.....
In the first year, I got 40/100 in Mahtmeatics and cleared my languages too...but in my major, I had failed....In Heat and Thermodynamics, I was well below the 40% required to get through!
There was a big reason that contributed to this....I nev er worked hard....I never studied....Not even days before the University exmination....I simply hated physics...My mind was thinking all about numbers and their special properties!
The practials were one big torture! The examination for practicals weren't going to be held at the end of the academic year, instead, at the end of the graduation course, that is three years later sad
I was in a group of about 10 students in which only one person was marginally ahead of me in academics! The others all had come on a picnic!! I was puntual in attending classes for the three years, my attendance never dipping below 90%! Yet, I seldom paid attention to what was being taught! It all seemed like Greek and Latin to me!!!
Thats how the first two years at college passed! At the end of the second year, I had cleared all papers but one! That was the language paper for the second year! Hindi! It's a shame I failed to clear that paper! Coz all my firneds and acquiantances know I speak and write perfectly well in the language! Anyhow, I had cleared Mechanics, and that made me really happy! Chemistry had never been a problem to me! The practicals were pretty helpful in lifting my score, I remember, in the organic analysis, I got Aniline Dye! A beautiful red dye!

It was during this period that I discovered the beauty of the number 1152921504606846976!

Although I have been good at Physical Chemistry and Inorganic, Organic has always been my Waterloo! smile smile smile

Re: Jinxed career.....

Yes, my own story. And thanks for the nice words said.

Cont'd.

The second and third years at college went to well. I was a back bencher, but managed to clear the papers, on most occasions, scoring the required marks for a pass.
Being a student of Physics, we weren't allowed to take lot of leave, since the practicals were held regularly. However, I never missed an opportunity to watch a test match played at Chepauk, the MA Chidambaram stadium. The historic test (also called the Pongal treat) was played in which Narendra Hirwani too 16 wickets on debut, emulating Bob Masse's record. The test was captained by Ravi Shastri for India, and India squared the series with the West Indies, making Sir Isaac Vivian Alexander Richards say " I've got a long memory, maan"!

The third year, the final one, was really tough with all Physics papers, viz. Optics and Spectroscopy, Electricity and Magnetism, Atomic Physics and Electronics, Nuclear Physics and Theory of Relativity, and finally, the toughest of them all, Applied Electronics.
If this wasn't enough, we also had two practical examinations and any of the 60 odd experiments would have to be performed in each paper. The experiment was decided by lots. How lucky I was!

To continue....

Re: Jinxed career.....

Lady luck smiled on me!
I got i-i` curve (Spectrometer) for paper II and Uniform bending (Young's Modulus) with Vernier Microscope for paper I!
I was the luckiest of the lot!
Had I got an experiment in Heat or in Electronics, I would never have completed my University!
The theory papers too were cleared, without much trouble, and June 1989 saw my happiest days on the planet! I was a university degree holder!
But what I did after that was absolute mess, something I would never forgive myself for!

Re: Jinxed career.....

Hi ganesh!! I was also born in the late 1960's. Love your story.  I'm guessing your age based on college entrance year, though it might not be an accurate way to guess.  I like your 2 up 60 number.  I'll add the seven into this and work on it with a big calculator I made.  Let's see 2,3,2,5,7 multiplied is 420.  2^420, I'll see if I can get that for us in decimal, should be pretty easy with a calculator I wrote in C language.  Keep going, sorry to interrupt...
Oh here is the result for 2^420:

Code:

27 07685 24816 48582 61307 04510 
 17022 30179 13714 55814 21695 87418 99214 65443 96612 09039 
 31272 49997 50059 61073 80673 57336 04454 49567 56142 32576

Ganesh, you will love this one!!!
It is a big number with 8345 digits which can be shown to be rounded up, the
number common log 2 times 27720.
This big number is 2^27720, and it is special because it
can be rooted into whole numbers with any integer root from square root to 12th root.
The 27720 is 2*3*2*5*7*2*3*11
Here is the big number!!!! Enjoy!!! And please check it, if you have a way to check it!!
There are 5 leading zeros; just how I printed it; the decimal point is at the end.

Code:

Here is variable #: 1   It is a positive number.

Re: Jinxed career.....

Thanks, John.
I am 37, I was born on September 15, 1969, the day Ganesh Chaturthi is celebrated by Indians and Hindus all over the world.
Your higher powers are 2 are very interesting,
but when I calculated 2^2520 as approximately 3.940842 x 10^758, I did it with a hand held scientific calculator which had an upper limit of 9.99999999 x 10^99. sad
Thanks again, for saying you like my story. Continues.....

Many avenues were available after degree.
I wanted to do a Post Graduate Diploma in computers part-time working as a teacher.
I got selected in my first interview at Shrin Velankanni Higher Secondary School, Chennai. I was to teach Mathematics and Science for High School students.
The offer came with a condition. I had to handover my certificates to the Management as a security for working for a full academic year. I declined the offer.

Thereafter, I did the stupidest thing of my life. I enrolled for the CA course with the Institute of Chartered Accountants.
Stupid because, I was a Science and Mathematics student and knew nothing of Accountancy, Commerce or Economics or the Corporate laws. I had to start from the scratch.
I was a very lazy student, and I forgot that when I enrolled for the course.
The CA course, as it was then, required the students to undergo three years of articleship with a practising Chartered Accountant.
I did do that with a reputed firm. The partner who first spoke to me himself was a Mathematics graduate and he said many Science and Mathematics students excel in CA! I was optimistic then!
And I started with the ABCD of Accountancy!
Debit the receiver, credit the giver.
Debit what comes in, credit was goes ot.
Debit expenses  and losses, credit incomes and gains.
The golden rules of double-entry!!!
Since Accountancy involved numbers and logic, I loved the subject.
But Commerce, Economics, Corporate laws etc. were Greek and Latin to me!

Re: Jinxed career.....

Even though I had a technical education, I spent some time programming for business (accountants, contract managers and the like).

They didn't seem to notice that I wasn't educated in commerce. Numbers and logic still apply, you just have to add a few extra concepts (like credit/debit, balance, auditing) and you are there!

Re: Jinxed career.....

I was doing fairly well in the articleship,
and it gave me immense exposure with corporate bodies.
We were treated very well, and my seniors were good enough to help me with auditing.
I was often embarassed to ask some basic concepts, nevertheless, they all helped.
But the success rate of arond 1% was often pricking my heart!
Had I committed a blunder, I wondered.
After about 4 months, without being very serious about it, applied for an examination conducted by (India) Railway Recruitment.
Mathematics at that level was cakewalk for me, and English had never been a problem. The General Knowledge paper was a sitter too, and the one I was doubtful was Reasoning.
I forgot about the examination and continued my articleship.
I was such a lazy person, I failed to send a single asnwer paper to the Institute (by Post). This was some kind of practice  test, and you had to clear them all before appearing for the Intermediate examination. I think 16 of them.
June 1990, I had been selected in the written examination and was required to attend an interview at Chennai (it was then called Madras). The Interview went on well, I did perform reasonably well. I wasn't confident of getting through though. There were far more qualified persons attending the interview. Post Graduates, MBAs etc.
It was August, 1990, I was in Trichy, also called the Rockfort city, in the heart of Tamilnadu state, for auditing a couple of Companies there. I had been selected and had to report at the Southern Railway Zonal Office, Madras Division. I still remember the Roll No.
17533702.
What a relief! I grabbed the opportunity, and for the rest of my life I'd be a CA drop-out big_smile
November and December, 1990 : I was at Zonal Training School, Southern Railway, Trichy. (Yes, the same Trichy again smile )
I remember the first few lines of the Prayer before the start of the training every day!
Grow in Sublimation, Oh School everyday,
ever evolution and growth be thy way!
May your name shine like the starst so bright,
and lead Railways fame to Rockfort's height!

....To coninue!
