Wait your time will come!!!

Kenya is two hours ahead of Nigeria. It does not mean that Nigeria is slow, and Kenya is faster. Both countries are working based on their own “Time Zone.”
Someone is still single. Someone got married and ‘waited’ ten years before having a child, and there is another who had a baby within one year after marriage.
Someone graduated at the age of 22, yet waited 5 years before securing a job; and there is another who graduated at the age of 27 and secured employment immediately.
Someone became CEO at the age of 25 and died at the age of 50 while another became a CEO at the age of 50 and lived up to 90 years.
Some people have everything that work fast for them. Everyone worked according to their ‘Time Zone’.
Colleagues, friends, associates, younger one(s) might “seem” to go ahead of you. Don’t envy them, it’s their ‘Time Zone.’ Yours is coming soon. Hold on, be strong, and stay true to yourself. All things will work together for your good. You’re not late… you’re on time!

IIT student excel in being the youngest project manager at Camoplast Solideal

At 25 Chinthaka Palliyahguru is the youngest Project Manager at the leading solid tire and tracks manufacturer in the world under the Camoplast Solideal brand.

IMG_3255-225x300Having achieved this feat within a few years, Chinthaka today is heading projects in SAP ERP and strategic application roll outs in the company bringing to fore, IT compliance initiatives while evaluating vendor solutions and applications. He is also responsible for managing multicultural teams globally which includes North America, Europe and Asia. Furthermore he is the Associate lead of the Change Advisory Board (CAB) for Asia. He also holds the responsibility of continuous improvement in Sri Lankan IT operations.
Sharing his views on his success thus far, Chinthaka noted that his job requires him to have an in-depth knowledge and understanding into IT as well as business. These criteria’s he has successfully absorbed during his studies at IIT, from where he holds a degree on Information Systems with Business Management from University of Westminster (UOW) UK.

He further explained that “However, this is not the only tool that must be possessed to be an effective Project Manager.  We are a project based organization, so we need to be versed in a wide variety of areas including finance, communication, and effective people skills. Keeping a project on-time and under budget while maintaining high quality and customer satisfaction is essential to the success of a Project Manager as well as managing and leading teams and dealing with international users of the systems which IIT leanings were definitely a benefit.

“It’s crucial to be confident and know what you are talking about. If a customer asks a question, you should have an answer on the spot. They’ll learn to trust you more if you can do that.Under my role as Continuous Improvement Manager I also handle identifying, designing and executing back-up plans for critical processes and resources, and is responsible for activity justification, post auditing, tracking and base lining, planning, developing, training and conducting training sessions for IT staff and management on a continuous basis,” Chinthaka said.

Acknowledging the benefits of the learning he received at IIT for such functions, Chinthaka affirmed that the knowledge gathered during his studies has not only helped him in technical and practical areas of his day-to-day office work but also enabled him to make a very easy transition into being an effective and reliable manager after graduation.

He stated that “I believe IIT has contributed tremendously to the success of many students such as myself and this is the reason that today IIT has such positive industry recognition and stands among the best in higher education in the avenues of IT and Business Management, furnishing students with qualifications that are on par with world standards and is accepted worldwide for its content, quality and skill development.  “We also got the opportunity to develop many soft skills from business etiquette, to presentation skills and leadership abilities. “

He noted that lecture panel was ‘brilliant’ bringing insight into the working world of business and commerce from their personal experiences and learning’s over and above the text book theory explained in careful detail.

With IIT offering internship programmes during the course of the study, Chinthaka was offered a position at Unilever IT, where he was involved in customer outlet classification projects. “Once I finished my internship they offered me a position to work there as well,” he said.

“One of the key advantages of being an IIT student is that, at job interviews we have an edge over other applicants because of the combined theoretical and practical knowledge on both IT and business fields we received. Their alumni is an endorsement of this fact, as most of them hold leading positions in various industries both here and abroad.”

With a vision to start his own firm and contribute to society by offering design solutions to help small and medium businesses to bridge the gap between IT and business to improve the efficiencies, he recommends the institute for all students and professionals looking at horning their skills in the fields of technology and commerce.

Some new captions….

Thank you all for understanding about my need to just talk on this blog.  When I started this blog I really didn’t worry about what I talked about on here.  It was my place to let it all out and to share what my life is like as an expat.  I would sit down each day without any real blog post in mind.  I would start typing and the post would grow from word to word. However, I am going to go back to the style of writing I had when I began this blog.  Meaning there is no style.  :) ..

So I decided put up some of my photos as I have always done from the recent past.   Lat two months actually i did not have time much time for roaming. But somehow i managed my time to go to Yala Sanctuary and Pollonnaruwa. Also I went to Kithulgala last week.

Gal Vihara (The Rock Temple)

The Gal Vihara at Polonnaruwa  represents the pinnacle of Sinhalese rock carving. The four great Buddha statues herein with the serene facial expressions & liquid flow of the robes, all carved from the same massive slab of granite, originally formed part of King Parakrambahu’s northern monastery complex. As the sockets cut into rock behind the statues indicate, each statue would originally have been housed in its own enclosure.

Standing Buddha Statue – The seven meter tall standing Buddha statue next to the reclining Buddha statue is the most unusual of the group of four Buddha statues: his arms folded & his eyes half-closed. It’s a sorrowful expression. Dark strata in the rock sweep contour lines across the delicately carved features of his face like the slipstream from a dream.

The council chamber of king Nissankamalla is also located close to the Island Park and to the west of the Parakrama-Samudra. It has been built in three receding tiers. It still preserves on its stone pillars inscriptions denoting the positions taken up by its members when the council was in session. The colossal figure of a lion in the round which served as the throne of the king has been removed to the Colombo museum from this building.
