A Journey to India a dream come true
Once upon a time I think and thought of how India will be a place for me to visit not knowing it was just a stone throw away from me having a training with Amtech Excel PTP. So excited the date I will fly I couldn’t wait and always praying the date should come on time. Because of what I have heard about India been one of the leading IT big wigs in the world.
I arrived in india Ahmedabad Airport and was pick up by a mini cap to my hotel room. A very fantastic five star hotel reserved for me as well welcome reception received from Amtech Excel PTP to officially commence my coming and the training course on Joomla Administration PHP and CSS. I was introduced to Mr Dlip and wife and other worker and later my instructor Mr Patel Nhkil.
An intensive 10 day classes began with my instructor Nhkil who took me through CSS3, PHP and Joomla Administration. It was a very good experience and Nhkil really gave me an insight and techniques on how to debug, troubleshoot and syntax error solving etc in Contentment Management System (Joomal ), CSS3 and PHP. A very well prepared time table with every end lesson assignment was given. He was really on me with pile and load of work which helped me in this training. Through the training a good website was developed and was equipped with an invaluable knowledge from Excel PTP Trainer.
My only challenges were the time and food in Gujarat Ahmedabad which I also think is a good experience for me. India is ahead six (6) hours interval to my home country. So waking up and going for lectures made me look like an odd person because on my first day in class I was feeling sleep. The time was in class my home country was deep in the night where people are sleeping and am in class learning was not comfortable at all until I adjust to the time. Food was another headache for me which even got me sick. From a non-vegetarian to a vegetarian town Gujarat was something I had to fight in the ring because there was nothing I could do until the final 12 rounds……… hahahahaha. I have to force myself and eat these food with no meat, very slimy and sometimes tasteless in my mouth.
A trip to tour the nearby town and also ride around the cities behind the moto bicycle with my instructor into the malls, cinemas etc… was a fun. Later we took a day trip with management of Amtech Excel PTP Dlip Rajpoota, Hitesh and Vishal. We drive many hours to Junagadh then Dudhivadar Village, Rayadi Village where I met with Dilip and Hitesh families. Interesting families they all gave me a ransomed welcome. We stop by road side to have tea, lunch and dinner. We move back to the city of Junagadh to visit Jata Sankar Taleti in the Forest made a last trip to Uperkot and back to Gujarat Ahmadabad. It was a fun loads of activities and I really enjoyed it.
I want to thank the management of Amtech Excel PTP for making it possible and given me such a great opportunity to gain so experience and also to be part in their history book. And am always ready to come back. Thank you and God bless you.
