I stayed in Chennai from May 22, 2016 till July 17, 2016 as part of Practice School-1 program by BITS Pilani. During this time I interned as an embedded systems trainee at CSIR- CEERI, Madras. This experience taught me a lot of things, from scrambling with basic(read: barely enough) Tamil in crowded (MTC) buses to hands on training with STM32 family of embedded MCUs.
North and South India are like two poles apart when it comes to various aspects of life, yet the same. I will miss the filter coffee when I go back to my humble abode in Pilani.
Overall, it was a delightful experience to get to know more about my country and its colorful inhabitants.
