Life @ NSSCE

of the life at NSS College of Engineering, Palakkad.
Alumni associations across the world strive to keep the memories
alive of those glorious years spent in the campus. It so happens
that there are a number of alumni associations for NSS College
of Engineering functioning simultaneously all over the world
where ever a few Ex-NSSsians got together. Over time, rivalries
and differences...political or personal...found their way
to these gatherings too. Having had to witness heated exchanges
amounting even to physical assaults, this often resulted in
people staying away from the mere mention of the word "alumni".
The other day this website got a request from the newly formed
placement cell coordinator of the college. He requested the
help of ex-students who were well placed in different companies
across the world to pass on information of requirements in
their companies to the placement cell and to arrange for campus
interviews if possible.
This website opines that efforts should be made to coordinate
the activities of different alumni associations functioning
across the world. This would enable to streamline and utilise
the resources of the community more effectively.
Representatives of the alumni associations reading this as
well as each and every one of the community, please send
in your suggestions on how this movement could be made
more useful and fruitful.

Censorship in the Alumni Yahoo! Group
Once upon a time.....It was in 1996. That was before the
e-Groups was taken over by Yahoo!. There was this very active
and interesting e-Group which was formed and managed by an
enterprising ex-1992 NSScian. There used to be very active
and un restricted debates on the discussion forum which was
very popular among the 1992 batch. The discussion forum, although
managed from the UAE, served the most useful purpose of linking
friends and batchmates across the globe and keeping them connected.
Of course there were instances of abuses. But that's there
everywhere and often the line of discretion is quite personal.
The members of the group never felt the need to control
or censor the group. They were after all ex-NSScians!!
Censorship? The idea itself is so very "un-NSScian".
In this historical backdrop.....it was quite disheartening
to find a Christmas Greeting
in the present Yahoo Group of the NSS Alumni.
