hey alllllll
quite a few days without blogging.. i was busy reading for my Last/Final exam for my Master's program which was on Friday. Before I get to it, been a long 2 weeks for the preparation, 25 lectures, 1200 slides, 12 book chapters :-)) .. And since coming back from US, it's my first major exam, which means after almost 18 months.
But I enjoyed studying it, even thou I didn't need to give it as per requirements, but i wanted it in my course-work, it was on "Machine Learning and Data Mining in Bioinformatics".
So before boring you more, and getting to the NEWS of the year (for my life offcourse). I gave the exam on friday and hip hip hurray, cleared it with an awesome grade.
And IT COMPLETES MY MASTERS :-)), which means I would officially now have an International Master of Science in Computational Science and Engineering degree from TU-Munich... yupppp ;-)
I am happy about it and all the decisions, hardships, living away from home, n everything else (good and bad) which I had to go thru', came to this country (Dankeshoen Deutschland), to get a good education and degree which is finally achieved. I even had to prolong it for my SCR internship for 1 year, which was big decision also for me, but now I am satisfied with all my decisions in last few years I had to made. :-)
I wrote an Acknowledgement to thank each and everyone of you who made an impact on my life in these year (also included in my thesis):

I would sincerely like to thank Prof. Dr. Stefan Kramer for expressing his interest in supervising my work and supplied me with his valuable guidance and supported to help me to complete my work.
I would like to thank Dr. Bernd Wachmann, my supervisor at SCR, for all his suggestions
and constant support during my entire research work and giving me guidance in every step. I am also thankful to Dr. Claus Neubauer for giving me the opportunity to work at SCR.
I also had the pleasure of working with, Dr. John Chuo and Dr. Steven Choi, from RWJ
Hospital during the time of working on this thesis and there invaluable comments and support provided during the entire course of my project is indispensable. The medical data provided by them was crucial for my thesis and overall project work.
Here, I must also thank my graduate studies coordinators, Dr. Michael Bader, Prof.
Christoph Zenger, for providing me with the best environment to study at TU Munich.
And of course, I am grateful to my parents and my brother for their constant love,
patience, and support and believing in me throughout my studies.
Also special thanks to, N Gaur and D Gaur, for being so helpful and
supporting me during my studies.
Finally, I wish to thank my friends all over the world: Anja, Claudia, Meltem, Silvia,
Sebastian P., Grace, Geri, Zak, PA, Bjoern, Winy, Nat, Laura, Sebastian D, Andreas E (for all the good and bad times we shared and for being there to support during all times); Hans, Karl, Stephan, Thomas, Na, Julien E, Brad (invaluable team members at IVR); Bhavish, Bindia (back home); Rikki, Pae, Les, Srdjee, Anil, Konstantinos, Ahmed (for the wonderful time we had during our studies).

Sorry if I forgot someone, but I thank each n everyone of you, even if it might have been a short time we shar'd.

An important milestone of my life with all the exprienences.

Thanks ALL

This is the end, Beautiful friend
This is the end, My only friend

The end of our elaborate plans,
The end of everything that stands, The end
No safety or surprise, the end
I’ll never look into your eyes...again

picture what will be, so limitless and free
desperately in need of some stranger's hand, in a desperate land

The end of laughter and soft lies
The end of nights we tried to die

This is the end

Munich 04.03.2006

After 2 days, 40 cms, 15 inch's of snow n more snow.. one can't miss how beautiful Munich looks :-).. Even thou all on-street public transport was not working, and no under-ground station near my home, I decided to still go out and walk a bit and my walk went all the way to hauptbahnhof to marienplatz to Olympiapark (by U-Bahn) and back home. But i tru'ly enjoyed the view, people skiing and snowboarding at Olympiapark hill, children sliding, snow-mans all around city, cars covered with snow, .. enjoy the pics at Flickr
