University to Introduce student friendly myPal Kiosk

All this will be a thing of the past. Source: The Manipal Journal

There is a new machine which will be  installed in the farthest lunch line in the cafeteria, called the myPal Kiosk. The name for this machine, is inspired by the name of  Manipal, and the new airtel ad ” har ek friend zaroori hota hai”.

  This machine allows money to be put into a student’s lunch account to make it quicker to purchase food and have enough time to eat. The myPal Kiosk accepts coins and cash, but no pennies. In order to put money in, it is required for the student to know their 9-digit student ID number.

Every time a student logs in, the machine will have a greeting by identifying his or her name. Once logged in, the machine only gives the individual only 30 seconds of idle time, until logging out of account. When finished, a receipt will print out confirming the amount of money in his or her account.

The line farthest to the right, will only accept money through myPal Kiosk. This will save time during lunches, approximately 40 minutes a day. In addition to the myPal Kiosk, the empty vending machine, that students pass by everyday during lunch, will finally be stocked with fresh food. These include milk, Chick-Fil-A sandwiches, vitamin water, and a variety of breakfast foods.

The Chief Warden for the  College Dorm said, “There have been many complaints regarding the time take to have a decent meal at the college food court. Hopefully these two machines will speed up the process of the lunches and lunch lines, so the students are able to enjoy their lunch without any rush.” However, he failed to inform on the exact date that the machine will be installed.

However, Nalith Lag, a second year student at the college was of the opinion that “It’s a waste of time and a way for the college to get your money.” Another student, Torna Sonse said , “I think it’s stupid because it can just take your money.”

Engineer’s Day evokes strong response

World Sports Journalism Day
We Demand a World Sports Journalism Day!

Tired of seeing all the ‘Happy Engineer’s Day’ posts all over social media sites, students from various other streams felt left out and decided to have a day for their respective streams as well. One Manoj Tiwari (name changed on request) from a reputed communications colleg in Manipal, said ” Soon we will call for a meeting and decide on a day to celebrate ‘Mass Communication Day’ across India.”

Another student from the Dept. of Commerce, Ethan D’ silva (name changed on request) too felt the same. He said, “We are roughly 100 students in this college. But worldwide there are crores of people from the commerce background and doing better than their engineering counterparts. We too will call for a meeting and celebrate ‘Commerce Day’ in the coming days.”

In retaliation to this, an engineering from MIT, Swagnik Bhat (name changed again) said, “We are the minds behind all the convenience that this world is enjoying today. Just imagine a world without engineers. Can you? It would be just like Lady Gaga without all those Gaga around her or maybe Rakhi Sawant without the fuss or her fake accessories or Ekta Kapoor with her ‘K’ series. We deserve a day dedicated to us and we are proud to be an engineer.”

We are keenly awaiting further developments in this regard and expect fireworks in the days to come.

MIT faculty vandalize students’ belongings

Broken Electronic Items of Students of 10th Block
Broken Electronic Items of Students of 10th Block

In what could be first ever instance of its kind in Manipal, a group of MIT faculty barged into the rooms of students and vandalized their belongings mercilessly. The incident happened in the evening hours of Monday at tenth block of MIT hostels.

The victims are the students who played truant during the third day(Saturday) of first sessionals. This is seen as retaliation from college after some students vandalized college property when there was power blackout on the Thursday night.

Students in the block watched helplessly as the faculty destroyed all their goods before them. Broken shards of electronic items like ipods,cameras,cell phones etc.. were seen strewn across the floor.

Vindicating the actions of faculty, chief warden of MIT hostels,said ,”These students mindlessly vandalized hostel property when there was power outage due to rain. This is not at all expected from students in a reputed institute like MIT. We want to teach a befitting lesson to them in their own language . So we are targeting students who bunked the exams even after having no power blackouts.We will also target those students who will score less than 60% in the exams conducted on Saturday.”

One of the Faculty on conditions of anonymity, said, “These students damaged the college property. Yet, they justify their behaviour on various prominent Blogs, by arguing that they are not criminals. Tell me, would you allow any drunk/distraught or troubled human being to visit your house and create a ruckus? Would you allow him to damage your home or property? Isn’t that a criminal act? “. He further added, “Look, we do not intend any harm to the students, but they have to realise they can’t get away with damaging college property!”

Earlier on thursday,some students in the tenth block went on a rampage as there was power outage due to rain because of which their preparation for the next day’s exam was disrupted for over three hours.The issue settled after acting chief Warden sprang into action and threatened the students with dire consequences.

 

Note: The author of this article condemns the mindless vandalism of his fellow students in strongest terms. He feels they should have maintained some restraint at that time.

MIT student attributes his success to ION wireless

ION Internet for Success
Ion - Find Inspiration offline Now!

In what could be one of the rarest compliments from its users, ION wireless, which provides internet services for MU hostels, was commended by a  student of MIT for its ‘uninterrupted internet outage’ in his room .

Kahil Sumar, a student of MIT who got placed in Mahindra & Mahindra recently, attributed his success  in placements to ION wireless.

Speaking to Faking News section of ManipalBlog, he  said,”If it weren’t for ION’S uninterrupted internet outage, I wouldn’t have got placed  at all. The constant outage has provided me with ample time to focus on my academics as well as prepare for written tests and interviews. I am grateful to ION forever.”

As a gesture of gratitude,he  personally visited Innovation Center  in MIT and presented an ‘Aircel  portable 3G connection set’  to  Ms.Shilpa Shetty(name changed), the  ION representative in MIT. Her reaction to this gesture is unknown to us.

Kahil also called on and thanked Chief Warden of MIT Hostels, Dr.R.M. Pai for encouraging this unique service of ION. But Dr.Pai refused to take credit for this. Talking to Faking News section of ManipalBlog, he said, “I have just taken over the reins recently.I am very happy for the student. But this credit should entirely go to previous chief wardens.Yes,100 percent!!!”

After coming to know of this story,Senu Vomineni, a  self-proclaimed “Success Coach” and “inspirational  public speaker”, who was present in MIT  for  a workshop  congratulated the student and admired his positive thinking. He also presented his book “One book for  Life Success” to Kahil.

Not surprisingly, Kahil was spotted in the cyber café outside MIT at the time of writing this article.
