Malampuzha Dam a visit – Eco and Trekking Club, SNSCE

On 11/02/2018 Sunday morning a group of First year students of SNS college of engineering made a busy head start in the morning to Ukkadam Bustand to make their trip to Malampuzha dam. R.N.Raja Ravi Shankar (AP/English – SCD) Our Eco and Trekking club Coordinator accompanied students along in this trip.

          Malampuzha Dam One of the largest reservoirs of Kerala, Malampuzha Dam is located near Palakkad in South India. It is surrounded by the Western Ghats on all side. Malampuzha Dam is a combination of a masonry dam with a length of 1,849 meters and an earthen dam with a height of 220 meters. The dam is 355 feet high and crosses the Malampuzha River, which is a tributary of Bharathappuzha, which is Kerala’s second largest river. Some major tourist attractions near Malampuzha Dam are Entrance Garden, Yakshi Garden, Japanese Garden, Upper Garden and viewpoint, Cable car ride, Fish shaped aquarium, Toy train for kids, Fantasy Park, Spiced fruits camp along with some excellent trekking tracks and river baths

Once students got into bus a simple instruction of not to use their mobile phone while travelling was given, they were asked to focus on the landscape, trees and very geography that changes from Coimbatore to Palakad (70kms). Students saw how even the selection of trees in household changes over a period of time along with the building structures.

We reached Malampuzha dam and spent the day exploring various aspects of the dam and garden. Students had their hand in everything from visiting the various gardens to boating to cable cars to having the close look at the civil architectural marvel of the dam. In the middle we played Frisbee in garden area and soon our play became a new tourist attraction.

Snake park added more flavor to the students interest and of course students had a real close look at a particular snake called Python (that’s a name of subject for I years).We had a amazing day and we shall look for more such days in lap of Nature.

Rising Star- A Mechanical in Head and Designer in Heart- M U SHABARISH MECHANICAL C (2014-2018)






Good morning everyone, I am M.U.Shabrish (IV Mechanical Engineering student. I have interest in various fields including bikes, motors and Photoshop Designing also. People feel its strange for a Mech guy to design posters and design but I have a passion for it. So let me explain how it all started. First  I went  to join design class in Erode for killing some time during the summer holidays (2014), also I got along a diploma in design course

It contained 2 different software   1 ADOPE PHOTOSHOP 2 ANIMATION MAKING, ADOPE PHOTOSHOP was very interesting to learn, when compared to other software we learn or we use. On that time of learning I spend a lot of time to design particular images on that time my Guide, taught some shortcut methods to design quickly. Various tools and various methods added spice to it and it was  easy to  use that software , and created a  interest in me  to work on that

One day I designed my photos , I put a lot of effort to look very nice and finally I got best student award on that class , that award and appreciation made me get motivated and made me move more in that direction.

After completion of software course, I never used it for all most an  year. Then  one fine day morning , I got opportunity to expose my designing talent , my Department needed designs of  certificates as well as poster for event named as RPM 2k16 .Some students sent their design formats to the competition, I   put at most of what I got and deigned certificates and posters.My  design was selected for  that  event.

After that my department give various chances design various posters, certificates and ID’s, I also got an opportunity to design the Bike Review poster in SCD and various other  designer work in our college.

In future I going to study graphics softwares, which is much a upgrade level of Photoshop and animations I wish to use my software knowledge and explore more possibilities in my line of work in future either as Designer or Mechanical Engineer.

Editors Note – We wish to invite young talents and showcase their talents and enthusiasm in life. Here we see a mechanical engineer who is skilled in designing. we personally saw him in work when he designed  Bike Review Contest Poster. He was very systematic and dedicated in work. We wish him for a better success in his course of life.

My Experience:

          Thank you for giving me such a valuable opportunity to review a story. When I started read this story I could not read even one single paragraph in one day. Then I read the paragraph repeatedly then  I got some interest which lead me to read the story. This story is totally different from other stories. I thank my friends, Teachers, my Department and all the Staff of SCD who helped me to accomplish this task. I wish to read more books in future for sure.

The Adventure of Black Peter is a short story written by Arthur Conan Doyle about Mr.Sherlock Holmes, a detective officer. The story is narrated by Dr.Watson, a friend of Holmes.This story is about the investigation of Peter Carley’s death. He was a former whale fisherman nicknamed as “Black Peter” by his crew, a rude man lived in Forest Row with his family, and he was a drunk and was found murdered in his shed with harpoon.

Stanley Hopkins was a junior police officer who seeks help from Holmes, he could found 2 rum glasses, pocket diary and tobacco pouch from Peter’s room.

Three investigation officers found that someone had already tried to open the door was open before they reached. So, they waited until midnight and they found John Hopley Neligan and he’s the son of a long-missing, failed banker. His father sailed to Norway with a box of securities and those of securities were sold by Carley.Neligan came for asking about this but he found Carley dead before he reahed. On realizing that he may not be the murderer. Holmes, under the name of Captain Basil, sends a telegram to recruit sailors. Three men show at his house and among them, Holmes handcuffs Patrick Cairns, a harpooner, who immediately confesses to the murder. In 1883, he saw Carey kill the banker Neligan and steal the securities. Shortly thereafter, the captain retired and Cairns started to search for him to claim his share. He met him in the shed, but the discussion turned to fight and, picking up the harpoon hanging on the wall, he impaled Carey with it.


When I started reading the story ,it was very difficult for me to understand the words. It took two days of time to complete a page. I could not understand anything from the first two pages then with the help of Tamil dictionary and google-translator it became bit easy. Then friends helped me to get idea about what the story actually is, then keeping those ideas in mind, I kept on reading the story several times. Then it was interesting, the curiosity in knowing what comes next made me to read the entire story. The most interesting part in the story which I felt was Holmes finding the murderer all of a sudden out of three.

Review -Study In Scarlet


                                                                                                      by  Nikhilamary N / CSE III Year


A study in scarlet is a novel written by Arthur Conan Doyle featuring English Detective Sherlock Holmes and his friend Dr. Watson. This story was written in the year 1886 and was published in the year 1887.

It is a strange book with different structure connecting two stories. In the first part it is beautifully describing about the meeting of two friends, Mr. Holmes and Dr. Watson. Then it follows with the death of two people occurred with the difference of hours, Mr. Drebber was murdered at the midnight and his P.A was murdered next morning in a hotel.At the end of this part Holmes will find that murderer is Mr.Jefferson Hopes. The most interesting part here was Holmes examining Mr. Drebber’s body and giving clear explanation, it was amazing.

In the second part, the writer describes the back-story of these people and what made the murderer do this crime to them. While completion of this part we may feel pity on Mr. Jefferson Hope who killed both of them since they killed Mr. John Ferrier and made Lucy Ferrier (Mr.Jefferson’s lover) marry Mr.Drebber forcefully which in turn caused Lucy’s suicide and finally Jefferson Hope lost everything in life .Here the interesting part was Mr. John Ferrier waiting  Mr. Jefferson when only 30 days of time was given by his enemies.


When I heard about reading club first, since it was new, was interested in joining this club. Then I was assigned with a novel to read “Study in Scarlet”. But was really lazy to read at the beginning. Then started reading; At the beginning  I felt too boring  to continue since many words were not familiar and then on referring dictionary and on re-reading came to know what was there given in the book. Then once the story started, became too curious to know what will happen next and I was able to complete the novel at the same day.
