Actually we are ruled out of the NSO (National Sports Organisation) camp 2007 due to lack of attendance. But its not a great deal, even if we have attended the camp we would have got the certificate. But most of us were in dilemma whether to attend NSO camp or not, then later we decided to attend the camp next year. During that time, I were in IIMA for my brother’s admissions and i had no chance of attending the camp. I always wanted to join NSS, but out of compulsion i made my choice to NSO as most of my mates joined NSO. We all met on June 25th morning near canteen and as we are 2nd years we didnt have a separate NSO number. We got delayed and in the evening we occupied Room no:50 in Block 3, where i used to be in my 4th sem. Later we went to the ground, where we got to opt any one of the games and we opted volleyball. We had a lap in the hostel and so we used to watch movies at night.

NSO Work Plan :

6:00am-Jogging in the ground

6:30am-Game Practice (Session I)


10:00am-Class Room Lecture(First Aid/Chess)


4:00pm-Game Practice (Session II)


We were ten of us and used to sleep in a single room. Bathing is one of the toughest job as we had only one bucket for 10 of us. Tomorrow morning we had our volleyball practice session and attended First Aid course at 10:00am. Later in the evening, we changed our game and opted Thai-Chi (combi of Kung fu and meditation). I even thought whether i have caught into wrong job after watching some of the Kung Fu moves. Later i got used to it and i leave out some of the faster moves. We watched movies as usual and got up late in the morning and we missed the morning session and went for dasavatharam matinee. From that day we started bunking NSO like anything. On July 2nd, the cross country race was held and on 3rd July we had the camp fire and we were almost at the end of the NSO camp. In the meantime, i was busy with my hostel admissions and i got alloted in Room no:32 in Block 11. On July 4th,we had only to sign in the NSO attendance sheet. It all ended at 4pm in the evening and i reached home at 8pm.

I get to know about this technology due to the release of Apple iPhone3G in July. 3G represents the third generation of wireless communication. We watch online TV in a mobile phone supported EDGE and they correspond to the 2G technology. Actually 3G is the advanced version of 2G which makes the movies to buffer 2.4 times faster than EDGE. 3G technology uses a protocol called HSDPA (High-Speed Downlink Packet Access) to download data fast over UMTS (Universal Mobile Telecommunications System) networks. 3G has a feature of multitasking, simultaneously you can talk on the phone while surfing the web. HSDPA protocol support down-link speeds of 1.8, 3.6, 7.2 and 14.4 Mbit/s and a maximum of 42Mbit/s with HSPA+ protocol. 4G technology are used to watch Internet TV in most of the countries including US.
