    That’s all folks!

    “Every ending is a new beginning”Bhagavad Gita

    Well well well… Yes people, after two years of struggles and challenges, I have finally graduated with Master of Science in Electrical Engineering.  It was indeed a bumpy ride, a lot of things happened during these two years.  I somehow don’t regret my decision of choosing TU Delft over other prestigious European and American universities. I had the honor to meet and work around unique people with special talents, which made Delft my second home. The environment and the people of this country are so welcoming and helpful that you don’t feel that you are away from home (Therefore, My blog is called “HOME AWAY FROM HOME“).

    As soon as you arrive, you will be welcomed by the typical Holland rains! Yes it does rain a lot for instance in the Netherlands. However, it is just gonna be a drizzle (not a downpour). If you’re from a warm country it may take time to adjust. The weather should definitely not stop anyone from studying here. Overtime, who knows you might just fall in love with this weather.

    My intentions for joining the promotion team were very clear from the start; my grandpa always used to emphasize on returning the favor to the institute that helps you to develop and grow, I did the exact same thing through this blog. You might also notice that in certain posts I have been very critical of the TU. Hope this blog was useful for you. If you think you can contribute to this awesome promotions team; contact them, be a part of an exciting team, get exposure, learn something new and enjoy what you do :p

    Signing off……!
