IBM has come forward with its Drona Partner Programme- an initiative aiming at providing better collaboration between academia and industry. Under the programme Independent Software Vendors(ISV's) would thus help enhance the employability of students, According to Anil Menon of IBM India, IT jobs in present times require more than just string technical abilities; students would need to have industry and business knowledge along with good interpersonal and effective communication skills. According to sources, by 2012 the need for skilled IT experts would increase to 1.5 million especially in India, China and South East Asia.

Synaesthesia is an interesting topic to bring into this. Although in this condition people can hear colors and see sounds etc this doesn't really answer whether they are experiencing the same. Again if you see a middle c as pink how you do know that the color you refer to as pink isn't the color I refer to as green (perceptually). I am not sure that this question will ever be answered since we can't experience another persons life, however there may be ways of inferring, which is why I brought up the concept of taste (by which I mean fashion or aesthetics) Art has suggested that certain colors are opposites. And it is true that certain colors stand out against one another this would suggest that we perceive the same colors. However some people seem to be inherently incapable of recognizing the jarring effect of certain color combinations, do they have a different perception of color or do they have another lesion elsewhere that just means they enjoy these jarring effects.

"You appear to be harmless so me gonna crush you, this would give me pride and happiness", well this is one such attitude which many possess!!! I everyday come through such incidents in my workplace, it totally pisses me off!!! One of our managers who are working in the company where I'm employed is a very simple man and is very modest. I personally admire him a lot, Believe me he is gentle to every body, shows no disparities, such humility!!! But some of the other employees take Advantage out of the situation by not obeying to him; I could easily find that out. Probably they are in an opinion that: what can he do??? He is not even capable of killing an ant!!! Fortunately at the same time he is very smart too so he somehow gets the work done from them. Just see what the mentality of the people is, if a person is of domineering type they would fear him and end up in praying to god asking to show some mercy, but if he is of the goodie good type they would completely rape the managers case, strange people!!!

Today, it is possible to buy things cheap online. All we have got to do is find the potential vendor and make comparisons with same products of different brands. While buying a cheap flat panel monitor, it is important to know the color contrasts it would support. It is also important to assess the response time that it would give for images. Flat panel monitors are a craze today. They have brought forth the concepts of Plasma and LCD. Such monitors can be based on liquid crystal displays. These let a specific type of crystals dance on the screen. They are so fluid in nature that they are attributed the name of liquid. Flat panel monitors can be found cheap with some search. Another problem that has been there with flat panel monitors is burn-in which causes burning of particular pixels. This results in red blur on the screen. You should look for cheap monitors but at the same time make sure that what you get has the right quality.

Well people repeated humiliation is the key factor behind me writing on this topic, I openly admit!!! I was forced to join and take up science when I was at high school when there was an option to choose between arts and science, I was very much interested in taking up arts which included the study of literature and things like that. My parents were invariably prejudiced and were insisting me to take science as the main stream, till then I was good at studies and was well liked by my professors but after choosing science as my stream the whole scenario changed!!! I couldn't perform well, the whole point was I was not interested, the world started to consider me as an incompetent individual, which seriously put me almost to a demented state. Anyway now I am well settled as it has been ages since that incident occurred!!! I always have the feel that it could have been better if I had taken the other option in my life, as that field also has good prospects. So I personally feel that instead of calling an individual incompetent it would always be better if you categorize him as per his interest. If a person is very much interested in some art if not immediately but would soon master it!!! Some people have the gift of adjusting and excelling in every field they get into irrespective of their liking, those are somewhat rare and not a better option as per me. So my sincere request to parents and educational institutes is only these, always try motivating students and induce some kind of interest in them instead of eschewing the poor performer and calling him incompetent!!!
