We have begun a new subject now, i.e., the second part of Retail Banking. It includes syllabus pertaining additional services offered by banks like Bancassurance, Demat, etc in great details.

I was too busy on Saturday and Sunday with excessive workload. I am happy that I was able to successfully accomplish these. I am sure, we will be going a great way in the new tasks that have begun.

RB-I has been completed and we have begun with RB-II. The Teachers’ Day Celebrations preparations are also on the route. After lunch, I came back and went through the PCSS sample paper for the upcoming examinations.

Signing off for the day.

Yesterday was a holiday on the holy occasion of Ganesh Chaturthi. Ganesh Chaturthi is a big festival for me. We celebrate it in a great way. It is one of the very important festivals. There were numerous calls from home to join them for the celebrations. But then, I did not feel like going as I do not have any reason to celebrate. I will definitely go for a celebration once I have the offer letter in my hand. Till then, let me wait. I feel sorry for I was not able to fulfill the wishes of my parents. In fact, there is a big joys in these small things. What parents need is not our job or money, they need love, care and affection more than anything else. But situations always play a different game in life.

Today was a good day. We had a Finacle class where we covered Stop Payment Processing. And after that we had a practice session. And the day was off as we had to prepare for the test tomorrow.

We had some discussions in relation to celebration of Teachers’ Day function too. It is going to be a surprise package. I have been put into the Food Department by the host and hostess, viz, Naveen Koganti and Meenu.

Signing off for the day.

The 3rd test began early at 8.30 am and we all were through it by 9.30 am. It was a supercool test. Adequate preparation and effort was put in and the results too were good. I was able to score well.

After the test, the surprise celebration of Teachers’ Day began. we invited all the faculty members and began with a presentation that thanked them and their efforts in molding and adding value to our lives. The next program was a quiz on general awareness of common things in life. It was a great fun. The questions included very small and minute things like the names of students, number of computers, number of questions in a test, etc. They had great fun. And then, we had an activity where the participant will be blindfolded and he will have to put a bindi on the forehead on the woman’s picture drawn on the board. Venkat sir put it in the hair, Lakshminarayana sir almost reached the forehead, Rahul sir put it on the eyes, Nagesh sir too reached somewhere near and under my perfect misguidance, Bala sir, who had almost put it on the right place went on to put it on the lips. That was real great fun. Further, all were amazed and astonaished when Praveen sir perfectly hit the right spot in moments. We had another competition of putting the thread into the needle. And the quickest in this was Rahul sir.

We also had a cake cut by the teachers. We had some snacks and cool drinks too. Soon, we slipped into entertainment session. I presented a laughter challenge kind of a thing where I imitated all the students as to how they will lead their life as bankers. It was heart fully loved by all and everyone laughed to their fullest. I was very happy that I was able to make so many people laugh and enjoy their lives. In fact, I am a very serious kind of a person and me doing this role was a real surprise. We had a song from Sameer and Ruchi. And soon, I too presented a song from Race, ‘Pehli Nazar Mein’. Nobody, including me, knew that I was a good singer. Seeing all this, Lakshminarayana sir got inspired to present a song and that was great too.

In the end, everyone was overwhelmed by the kind of celebration we had and was really satisfying and it made everyone feel happy and good.

Seeing all this, our centre head did not keep quiet. She too ordered for a cake and celebrated the day in the honor of all the teachers. That was another great fun. We requested her to sing a song. And there was a great refusal. But the request went so deep, strong and forceful that she finally came out with “Chaahe tum kuchh na kaho maine sun liya, Ki saathi pyaar ka mujhe chun liya” and we continued “Pehla nasha, Pehla khumaar, Naya pyaar hai naya intezaar, Kar loon main kya apna haal, Aye dil-e-bekaraar, Mere dil-e-bekaraar, Tu hi bata“.

And then, our personal entertainment session began. There was some good music and some great dancing to its tunes. I sat down & relaxed. While I was sitting, my mind traced back those beautiful moments of Teacher’s Day celebration at SSBJ & JGCC. They were some great moments. All in all, it went on well and it was a great day. Yes, The weekend has begun.

Signing off for the day.
