My name is Abdul Kareem. I have completed my bachelors in Electronics and Communication Engineering from Shadan College of Engineering and Technology.
I'm currently pursuing my Masters in Information Technology from Charles Sturt University, Melbourne. I'm from Hyderabad, India. I just find myself happy with the simple things. Appreciating the blessings God gave me.
My life motto is 'Do my best, so that I can't blame myself for anything.'
Hyderabad - Most famously known for CHARMINAR and its food. Steeped in history, thronged with people and buzzing with commerce, the Old City of Hyderabad is one of India's most evocative ancient quarters. Exploring the lanes of this district, with its chai shops and spice merchants, you'll encounter a teeming urban masala of colour and commerce. Looming over the Old City is some of Islamic India's most impressive architecture, in varying states of repair. Most visitors concentrate their time in this area, though the magnificent Golconda Fort should not be missed either. Hyderabad's other pole is far younger and west of the centre - its Hi-Tech City, or 'Cyberabad', and other districts like Banjara Hills and Jubilee Hills - are replete with glittery malls, multiplexes, clubs, pubs and sleek restaurants. One thing you have to accept wherever you are in Hyderabad: the traffic is appalling. Click on the picture below to know more information
Although it did feel like an adventure, coming from India to Australia all by myself was quite overwhelming and scary. I didn’t feel homesick because I was in love with the new culture and I’ve been enjoying all the freedom. Also, the big sun and clean air, (mostly) reliable transport, friendly people, no rubbish and no holes on the streets, four seasons and the Opera House, what more could I ask for? However, living without immediate family support could be hard at times.
When assignments are all due at the same week or when the assignments are all late for submission, when work is hectic, when laundry is mounting up, when the landlord sold the house and I had to move out, and when I get sick and I have to cook porridge for myself because Mom is back home in India.
Despite the hard times, I still think it is a great opportunity and privilege to come and study in Australia. It’s great making friends with people from different backgrounds, learning different languages, eating different foods. it is also great to live in a place where different opinions are all heard and respected, where physical and verbal violence is not a way of disagreeing, and it’s awesome how all the possibilities and opportunities are just on the plate.
After all, I think we should really enjoy the experience of studying here, even though most of us are facing difficult times when studying, during exams or when lots of assignments are due for example. As hard as it looks like, ahead of us is graduation, to stay or not to stay, can or cannot find a job, REAL adulthood and its responsibilities, that’s a lot harder! Thinking of that, studying is fun
