Computer and me

Watched the Kadhalar Thinam (Lovers Day) for just few minutes last night. And i should tell this film would be one of my inspirations on Computer. Here I will share my experience of how I introduced to computers. I was touch with computer and lessons from my 3rd STD. Those days, for one year we were just went through reading the books and listening to teacher. After my 4th STD we were allowed to see computers in first time in my life that was black and white. Our teacher takes us to the air-conditioned computer room, which has 3 computers. That time I haven’t think that these machines are going to rule the world.

For me going to computer room was enjoyable, not only for the cool temperature, to watch the games miss play on the computer. Miss play bricks joining, a game like prince and shooting. Rarely some students get chance to play, bad luck I couldn’t get one chance. It continues only till my 5th std, in my new school I got first time to touch and operate the computer. They had only one and it too was black and white, and that too was in principal room. Weekly ones we visit the room, they leave us to type in word pad and play games. After few months, they brought 5 new color computers, now we got much time to spent on the computer, leaving 2 or 3 students for one computer.

Here we tried our hands on paint, and on exam times they tell us to draw some thing. First time handling the mouse, it’s non-easy to draw some thing, so we use the line option to draw a hut, to surprise hut was easiest one for every one. It continues for 2 years, in that times of recede in my walking hesitate me to visit the room, but with help of my class mates I managed to go and play with the system. Here I should thank my best friend udhyan to be very care about me till I go and come to our class. In that time the film Kadhalar dhinam (Valentiens Day) released and the animation videos by computer kids and the chatting via the net brings interest on using computer. Dreams and wishes on the computer was increased, but in a situation to left the school I miss the opportunity to play on the system, but that time I was not more aware about the computer world.

In 2000 end while I was talking with my cousin uncle, I said my wish about computer. He was having a DTP center and well know about the computers, he recommend to my dad about the computer and explain its uses. After discussing with uncle and the computer assemble companies we brought a PC, with my little knowledge and with the school experience I started to work on it. Those days i used to play game and paint. After few days we got a master to teach us the basic programs, what the funniest is I have worked in computer for 3 years in school, but I don’t know how to switch off. My cousin uncle gives me idea to learn the DTP related programs, like CorelDraw, Photoshop and PageMaker in need if I can work from home. But the person who teaches me was not too good on it, so I learn very little. Only in 2003 I learn the 3 programs well, with that I am just doing greetings, some graphic work and the PageMaker helps me now to my Desktop works for the Kalakshetra Publication. That’s how I introduced to this big world of Computers.
