Back to Work

Yesterday was the official launch of the #ibmcsc india 22 program with all of our clients present. The event took place in one of the hotel's ballrooms, we all introduced ourselves and our clients presented their project, this was followed by a very nice lunch during which we discovered a delicious carrot based Punjabi desert called Gajar Ka Halwa. The afternoon we had small breakout sessions to start working on our assignments.

In the afternoon we had dinner at The Yellow Chili, a franchise restaurant associated with TV celebrity chef Sanjeev Kapoor, the food was succulent. I could easily imagine a few good wines that would be marvelous with the food, but so far I haven't seen any restaurants offering this possibility.

Today was our first day on the PAU campus. After a short ride in the auto rickshaw we arrived on location, finding the Agricultural Engineering College was a little challenging due to the shear size of the campus. Upon arrival, the first thing we noticed is this billboard :

We had a first meeting with the senior professors and were able to start finalizing our scope of work.

Later in the day we went out for some tea, and ended up eating some very nice fried vegetables.

Tea Time !
