I reached Manipal University early on 11th morning for my M Tech. counseling. Its a 2 hour bus journey from Manglore Central Railway station. I had breakfast in the food court in the campus. I was glad to find cool food joints like Subway and Dominos pizzas too there. I was not that tensed because I was pretty confident that I would get a seat! The counseling began with a couple of presentations about the new programs introduced this year. The countdown of the seats began very soon as the seat were getting filled one by one. My top priority was to get a Computer Science and Engineering seat. If failed then Software Engineering or Network Engineering.
The total intake was only 24 and my rank for the entrance exam is 171. As the rank neared 100 in the counseling, there were 16 vacant and 8 seats filled in CSE. So I thought, for another 100, another 8 will be filled and 8 vacant making my chances to get a CSE seat better! I kept my fingers crossed as my rank was nearing.
And finally my name was called and there were 8 seats remaining in CSE, just as I expected! All the three branches were there for me to choose from. I was thrilled and excited as I got my CSE I wanted. Later I booked my hostel room and also got myself a bank account in SBI!
After failing in the IIIT, Hyderabad exam and seats falling short in VIT, Vellore, I can now finally taste success at MIT, Manipal!
Looking forward for a new beginning at Manipal. To study in a new state and a new language to learn! Lots in store for me as a challenging 2 years study in MIT will begin early next month!

Today I came across an Operating System named O-Yes. According to the OS’s site it’s “the most efficient OS known to mankind. And it has been developed by a kid in India!! For many years it has been a closely guarded secret to protect our national interests.“. hmmm…. strange but might be interesting.

It continues to tell us about the developer of this secret and most efficient OS known to mankind: “Ramlal Bhagat, a Class XII. student from Haryana,India has developed a 32-bit operating system demonstrated to be far Superior to any of the desktop operating systems in the market today. The program has been named O-Yes. O-Yes provides operating system services on any Pentium-based personal computer (PC) and does not require MS-DOS as a base operating system“.

The Operating System is compared only to Windows 95 and OS/2 and not to newer Operating System which means it probably wasn’t updated for a long time. More form the site “O-Yes is 34% faster than Microsoft’s Windows 95 on similar hardware. It is 29% faster than IBM’s OS/2. O-Yes loads 54% quicker than Windows 95 or OS/2. O-Yes has a customizable, user-friendly graphical User Interface (GUI), in which every program can be accessed with a maximum of two button clicks. The operating system provides plug n play capability with numerous hardware devices. It has a superior memory management function. The operating system is compatible with Windows 95 & WindowsNT 4.0”

The site also claims that HCL, Ltd. (a company in India) as offered an unknown amount to Ramlal Bhagat for purchasing the rights to the software. But there are no other reports on the outcome of this offer.
