About me

Its too late to write a 'about me' page for this blog. Im going to leave this blog, that's why I am writing it.


Name :- Harisree

Age :- 21

Place :- Kerala

Educational Qualification :- Diploma in Electrical and Electronics Engineering



Why this blog ????

When I start studying gk, I faced a problem, that I can't remember the things which I studied earlier. So I need to write it down some where for revision.. Then I thought Why can't I start a blog for that purpose.
Oh My God.. that's the most successful decision I have ever made..



Why gk ????

After finishing my course in EEE, I had a Big question.  What To Do Next??

My parents, relatives and every one compelled me to join Engineering. My classmates are also preferred engineering. I know my weaknesses and strengths, so I didn't opted Engineering. I know If I choose it, after 3  years later I will end up in Bank coaching  like others, Don't follow the crowd, let them follow you. But when you take risk you have the responsibility to make your way clean. If you lose, there were too many tongues waiting to curse you..


My Apologies !!!!

Very difficult part in this blog is to manage the Online gk. I used several nick names especially Devan.
Being an administrator I may be Baned you, Ignored you, or even deleted your comments. I have done all these for making this blog gk friendly (and my communication skill also a disaster ) . please accept my sincere and humble apologies


Let Me Tell You Something
 


"If You Work Hard in proper way, You'll Succeed". Working hard is always good but smart work is always required. So study in proper way you will get your dream job. (I always like to advice people rather than follow it in my life !!! ). 



Thanks for your support and feedbacks

NB: Every thing said above is purely on my behalves and there might be error on both theoretical and grammatical side
