After setting the cricket world on fire, Suresh Raina is now setting the Internet on fire. "Suresh Raina is God" is spreading like a wild fire on Google and Twitter trends. I just followed few steps in Google Translate to confirm if 'Suresh Raina is God" of cricket or not. However, I found the real God of cricket. It showed' Sachin Tendulkar is God". I'm sure cricketing fans worldwide wouldn't be disappointed with the results.
Below are steps I followed in Google Translate.
1. Opened Google Translate.
2. Typed : 'Suresh Raina is God"
3. Changed to Translate it to Serbian
4. Copied the Serbian text and translate it back to English
5. The result is " Sachin Tendulkar is God"
Are you happy with the result?

"A study made at Harvard University proved that 85% of your success depends on your attitude and rest 15% on your technical aptitude"
We spend 90% of our efforts to improve our aptitude; we learn facts, figures, and formulas. But we spend only 10% (and sometimes not even that) to acquire the right attitude which incidentally contributes a more significant part for our success.
This will come as a shock to many, but it is a fact which no one can deny.
Six reasons why technical professionals need leadership skills:
Technical acumen alone is not sufficient.
● Leadership is not just for managers.
● Engineers lead projects.
● Engineers can guide less-experienced peers.
● Engineers need to help their managers business succeed.
● Engineers can influence decision-makers in their organizations.
Just ponder over and think how it feels when you get the required industry exposure being a student?

Freshersworld.com has already shared great camaraderie with people over at Shivo Hum India and when Sudhanshu (Director at Shivo Hum) contacted us, we readily partnered with the biggest education fair in Mumbai.
Me (Manu) & Imran traveled from Bangalore to Mumbai to present a seminar on the “Opportunities after Engineering” . The event was held at one of most pretigious colleges in Mumbai, VJTI.
The event started with a fantastic seminar from the people at Whistling Woods about opportunities in the Media industry.
Our seminar was attended by around 40 students who were really confused about their future after Engineering. We also had some school students who wanted information about Engineering. After talking to the students about the different Engineering streams , we moved on to conducting GDs and mock interviews.
The participation from the Mumbai crowd was fantastic & we thoroughly enjoyed interacting with them. We gave away T shirts as prizes to participants.
We also got the opportunity to visit some of the most important landmarks of the country, the Gateway of India, the Majestic Taj, Haji Ali, Nariman Point & Bandstand.
Thanks to the Management at Freshersworld.com for the opportunity & the guys at Shivo Hum for conducting the Mumbai Education fair!

The World Cup final in Mumbai will be a terrific day, with a magnificent carnival atmosphere and two very attractive teams.
Sri Lanka have Murali, the dancing-eyed, rubber-armed magician who has taken a remarkable total of 1,334 international wickets. Murali, 38, retires from international cricket after this match - although he will play in the Indian Premier League and this summer for Gloucestershire in Twenty20 cricket.
India have Sachin, the little master whose vast aggregates of 32,785 runs and 99 centuries prompt many here to worship him as though he really is a god. Tendulkar, 37, is one century away from 100 for his country.
What former players say about Sachin.
"There will never be another Sachin Tendulkar." - Sri Lankan off-spinner Muttiah Muralitharan
When you bowl at him you are not just trying to get him out, you are trying to impress him. "I want him to walk off thinking 'that Flintoff, he's all right isn't he? I feel privileged to have played against him -Andrew Flintoff
He is 99.5% Perfect.. I'll pay to watch him play. I think he is marvellous. I think he will fit in whatever category of Cricket that has been played or will be played, from the first ball that has ever been bowled to the last ball that's going to be. He can play in any era and at any level. - Viv Richards
I saw him (Sachin) playing on television and was struck by his technique, so I asked my wife to come look at him. Now I never saw myself play, but I feel that this player is playing much the same as I used to play, and she looked at him on Television and said yes, there is a similarity between the two...hi compactness, technique, stroke production... it all seemed to gel.- Sir Don Bradman.
"During our team meetings, we often speak about the importance of the first 12 balls to Tendulkar. If you get him then you can thank your stars, otherwise it could mean that tough times lie ahead." - Allan Donald
Andrew Symonds wrote on an aussie t-shirt he autographed specially for Sachin. " To Sachin, the man we all want to be ".
I have seen GOD , he bats at no.4 for india in Tests. - Mathew Hayden
We did not lose to a team called india...we lost to a man called Sachin.- Mark Taylor
Sachin is a genius , i am a mere mortal! - Brain Lara
What we [zimbabwe] need is 10 tendulkars.- Paul Strang
I would go to bed having nightmares of sachin dancing down the ground and hitting me for sixes. - Shane Warne
India's fortune will depend on how many runs the little champion scores. There is no doubt Tendulkar is the real thing.- Sunil Gavaskar
I Was fielding in the covers Tendulkar came out to bat in his debut Test at Karachi. I still remember Waqar Younis was at his peak form at that time. Tendulkar tried to drive Waqar through the covers off his very first ball in Test cricket but was beaten all ends up. But I walked to captain Imran Khan and told him 'this kid looks very good' and Imran agree with me. - Abdul Qadir
"Cricketers like Sachin come once in a lifetime and I am privileged he played in my time" - Wasim
"Tuzhe pata hai tune kiska catch chhoda hai?" Wasim Akram to Abdul Razzaq when the latter dropped Sachin's catch.
"Sachin Tendulkar! If he isn't the best player in the world, I want to see the best player in the world". - Rev David Shepherd
About Muttiah Muralitharan
Jayawardene said: "Everyone can see what Murali has achieved on the field. But I would like to admire the person off the field.
"When I joined the team, he was the first one who took me out for a meal. I didn't know him at all but he was so friendly.
"He has always done that. He is the first to take out a new player for a meal and a chat. That's Murali for you.
"And the annoying part is that he is probably the friendliest guy with opponents, too. Ask the English boys, the Indian boys, he will be the first to have a chat with them."
No matter which team wins the World Cup 2011 in Mumbai on Saturday, let's salute these 2 cricketing legends of our time.

According to analysts, the trend of moving to foreign land for higher studies has increased among the younger generation, especially around the age of 18-20 years. To this generation, what matters most are the original talent and a workplace which is appealing and interesting. Fat salaries come into the picture after the above qualities have been accomplished.
As per the survey conducted by TCS, when it came to overseas education, 66% of the students belonged to the mini-metros who had plans of studying abroad. In total, about 74% aims of acquiring a degree in foreign land.
"Nearly half of India's total population is under the age of 20 and classified under the youth category creating a group of over 459 million - more than the whole of the American population. This sizeable generation is already shaping the country and will play an incredibly important role in the direction that the nation takes next," said Ajoy Mukherjee, vice president, head, Global Human Resources.
The past trend shows that it was usually professionals or graduates that opted for advanced studies abroad, but now more and more young people are looking for these things and are increasingly keen to take the plunge and apply for that study visa.
Younger students are not interested to participate in the rat race anymore. There are some who want to join the University of Massachusetts-Amherst for a major in computer science, while there are others who want to pursue double degrees in biology and psychology as a second-year students at Ohio State University. Nakul wants to major in mechanical engineering at Cornell University, while Rajiv wants to study industrial engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology in the US.
All these young aspirants fall in the age bracket of 18-19 years.
Trend also shows that young generation is keener on subjects that are not so common. Basically, they opt for subjects that interest them, like psychology of consumers or history class on global Islam or wineology etc.
But why is the trend of undergraduates studying abroad increasing?
One major reason would be the changing outlook of Indian students towards studies and their careers. Indian students are no longer interested in a regular B.Com or B.A degree. They are no longer worried about competition and want to pursue subjects that they feel would be challenging.
The grass is greener mentality of studying abroad seems to be high among our students here. Also, it is commonly noticed that foreign universities offer more flexibility. It has become easier for students to secure educational loans that help them to fetch admissions in foreign courses quickly.
The competition to get admission in top reputed Indian colleges is fierce as a result some prefer to study abroad. Universities like Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore, offers same quality education as these top-notched colleges provide, with practical knowledge that are of world standards.
It is said that there has been a 15-20 % increase year on year in undergraduate student applications for foreign courses. Indian students usually prefer courses in UK, USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Recently Singapore has also been favored as one of the destinations for higher studies.
Today parents do not hesitate to send their students abroad. With the surfacing of wealthy middle class family, parents can now easily afford to send their children to foreign universities. Some also consider it as a "social status thing" to send their kids abroad. As a result, shelling out few thousands or lakhs is no more an issue for them. And for those who cannot afford it, educational loans come for the rescue.
An interesting trend seen these days is the emergence of Singapore as a destination for higher studies. Some students prefer Singapore as it is within Asia and near to their home country. The cost is less as compared to the studies in US or UK.
Will this sudden shift of young talented resource to the foreign land effect our country?
India has always been worried about brain drain.
Many experts believe that it will not affect India in any way because many wealthy NRI's, academics or professionals eventually come back in India to settle down and thereby help our country in many ways. Young Indians should be encouraged to study abroad. This will help them get firsthand experience and practical knowledge of international standards. It will eventually help in the growth of India's economy.
However, there are a group of students that believe in working in the country where they study. Anoop, an aspiring graduate, says that it is more practical to work in US if I complete my graduation there. This will give me more scope to grow financially and career wise. Nakul says "after investing all that time and money into getting a degree from a US college, it would be a little nonsensical to come back to India and start a career there."
While there are some Indian students who do come back after completing their studies abroad to join their family business and use the knowledge in the growth of the business and thereby Indian economy.

Innovators and Innovations are a technology training consultant specializing in the field of electronics engineering. “Regional Energy Conference” is their initiative, which promotes “Do Green”, a national Campaign for promoting Green Technologies, and was held in kochi, kerala on 20-March-2011.
I, Andrew William, Freshersworld.com, had the privilege of attending the campaign and address the participants (pre final year engineering students) on “Interviews Going Green”. Thanks to Mr. Afsal and Mr. Aarif, Innovators and Innovations, for the opportunity provided.
The day started with the inauguration by Mr. Afsal. He emphasized about the three R’s of environmental sustainability, Reduce, Reuse and Recycle which I think should be followed by every individual to save the diminishing Green environment. Then a presentation by Dr. T.K.Mani, principal, college of engineering, Cherthala on “Low power product design”. He mentioned the different aspects, which are Technology Development, low power hardware design, low power product design and the challenges in developing a low power product.
Next was an interactive session by Mr.Sreekanth, Team Leader, Wipro technologies on “Green in IT and software engineering”. He made suggestions on green computing and asked the audience to follow simple steps to Reuse, Refurbish and Recycle to optimize Electronic waste.
Post lunch ( the lunch was such a delight !! ), it was my session on how “interviews going green”. The session was very interactive. The pre final year engineering students had so many questions to ask about the interview process. I believe I was helpful to the students in answering all their queries. Then we had a very motivational video by IandI which briefed about the current environmental situation.
The final session was given by Colonel V.S.M Makkar ( formerly Chief commandant, Technical training division, Indian Army on “ Possibilities Unbounded in Alternate Energies”. During the presentation he explained about the conventional and non conventional sources of energy. Col. Makkar also explained the students about the career opportunities in the alternate energies sector.
Overall, the day was awesome and I had a nice learning experience. I believe IandI will continue this social initiative in the coming years and thus create awareness about global warming, sustainability issues and energy crisis through their “Do Green” Campaign.

In the last 6 months, I have used a few online platforms as well as other means to recruit interns for various roles at Women’s Web. While some applications have been relevant and presented well, others made me throw up my hands in horror!
With internship season usually peaking during the summer (April-June), this is the time to look out and start applying.
So, here are a few things NOT to do when applying for an internship (or a job, for that matter).
Apply for an irrelevant role:
If the ad calls for an intern with a background in journalism, don’t apply stating your knowledge of C++, Java or mechanical engineering. It only wastes your time and the recruiter’s. If you are confident that your skills are needed by that company, for a different role, state that in your email and give specific examples of how you can help.
Use ‘i’. ‘i would like a role in ur reputed organization’
The moment I see an email written like this, I press the delete button. If you cannot be bothered to press the shift key to type out a capital ‘I’, chances are that you won’t pay too much attention to your work either. Take the effort to use proper spelling.
If the ad states that you must write ‘For Java programmer role Code No. 3456’ in the subject line, do it. If you cannot follow a simple instruction, I will not hire you, no matter how talented you may be or how fantastic the rest of your resume is.
Send a standard resume:
I’m not interested in you; I’m only interested in how you can help me and my company. Don’t use the same resume for a start-up developing mobile apps and a software firm focused on the financial sector. Learn a little bit more about what they do – read their website, talk to friends or seniors in the workplace and customize your resume accordingly.
Send without re-reading:
All email providers today have a ‘save as draft’ option. Use it. Save your application e-mail after writing it. Open it a few hours later and check - are there any mistakes? Have you left anything out? Can you improve it in any way? You don’t need to be the first applicant, you need to be the best one!
Good luck and wish you a successful internship!
