Getting Jiggy with CEan Biggie- an interview

Hello guys,

Continuing the "Know your CEan" interview series, here is the KYC part 2. Here is a guy who needs no introduction. The man behind every thing that you see here, good or bad. The man behind CE, our very own The Big K. I have known Biggie for many years now. An electrical engineer by qualification and a passionate CEan by profession, it has always been a challenge for one too many to match his zeal and electrifying energy.

Here is a small tete-a-tete with our Good ol' administrator.

Mayur: You are the Founder and administrator of CE. Tell us more about your Job
The Big K: Ever since starting CE, I've been involved in everything that happens on CE. The job of an administrator is not easy. I'm responsible for maintaining the website, its security, introducing new features, keeping backups, moderating the forum, posting on forum, interviewing people from the industry… the list is endless.
Couple of months we formed an editorial team & I'm a part of it. The editorial team now works on lot of activities such as creating CE Bulletin, writing articles, advertising CE & handling queries put forth by CEans. It might look like 'lot of work', but I really enjoy what I do. Its lot of fun & I get to interact with crazy engineers from all over the world who are full of ideas & actions

Mayur: So what inspired you to start CE?
The Big K: I am fascinated by the engineers who built big ships, giant buildings, super fast cars, tiny watches. Just have a look around & you will see something that is a creation of an Engineer. I also enjoyed posting on newsgroups & forums. I remember the day when I searched on the internet for a community of engineers & surprisingly couldn't find any. So I decided to start one myself. CE was thus born on 26th of November 2005.


Mayur: And how far do you think you have come along in 1 and half years?
The Big K: We have survived. There is a long way to go. I'm happy that we didn't shut down our shop when times were bad. With 2500 members, I think our growth is good & we have a long way to go.

Mayur: Indeed. Passion and perseverance should drive any start ups. So where do you think CE is heading?
The Big K: Right now, the aim is to grow. CE can make a huge difference to people's lives. We, the engineers, have been turning the screws since ages and therefore it makes perfect sense to interact with each other. We have big plans for the future, but I'd not disclose them right now. Rather, we, the CEans, would love to present the world with surprises.


Mayur: We will wait for them. So what is your passion in life? (Apart from CE of course)
The Big K: I'm passionate about music & I'm a Guitarist. There are lots of thing I'd like to do. Be it playing TT or singing or travelling. I'm also passionate about reading & I'm fanatic about Super Bikes & Supercars. - All engineering marvels, you see.

Mayur: I have known you for long and have been a big fan of your guitar myself. You are an avid music lover and a no nonsense guy. How hard do you think is to make CE survive in the flood of online forums?
The Big K: First of all, something that should have been done, was not done. Although there are tons of online forums & social networking sites, CE is exclusively for Engineers. We will make our own path & we won't compete with anyone. CE will survive as long as the world keeps on producing Crazy Engineers like you & me.


Mayur: So you want to say that innovative thinking drives CE?
The Big K: CE is about "Engineering" - Who do you think is responsible for the buildings that we live in? The Cars we drive? the electric shavers we use? The electricity and what not. Innovation has driven the world and brought it to a place where it is today. We, the engineers, have played a major role in 'constructing' the world and that's why Engineers community is also driven by Innovation.


Mayur: Good to hear that. Thank you for sharing your thoughts. This will be indeed beneficial.
The Big K: Thanks for choosing me to be a part of your initiative. I'm sure we have lot to learn from our team mates on CE. I'll look forward to interviews of our own CEans. Cheers!

{P.S.: this interview has been taken online}

Hi CEans,
Well i was searching for the masterminds behind CA πŸ˜€. Till now, i have found Mayur and The Big K (I wonder what's his actual name is, hope he does'nt mind telling it ;-)).

Since the day i have joined CE, i have almost become a big fan of the Forum. It happened that i saw the movie DEJA VU, and started searching about time travelling, and guess what, i bumped into a POST on CE. The post fasinated me a lot. Then i read almost all the posts and they appealed to me amazing. They have a quintal of information here. Hence i decided to be a part of CE and joined the form.

I wish to know all those who are associated with this great forum.

Thanks and regards,
.

I admit that this forum is addictive. I was a long time lurker. Enjoyed reading the articles and discussions for a long time and then, decided to join. Special thanks to all who are associated with this forum for bringing all engineers together. I really like the name crazy engineers!
Man, it sure does take dedication to maintain a site like this. Well done guys!

Good patience and Determination, Admin πŸ˜‰
Time to spam this thread! *evil laugh*

By the way, it seems Asin is a brand ambassador for a number of products. Do you want to support those products too? πŸ˜‰

:sshhh: !
haha πŸ˜›

Have you written on her guestbook yet? If not, me and Patty can write some stuff on your behalf!

Maybe like..:
Hey Asin πŸ˜‰ This is Kaustubh.. you can call me Biggie πŸ˜‰ Say, are you free this Friday for tea? I'll make you my world famous Masala Chai πŸ˜‰ Perhaps we are truly a match? What say? πŸ˜‰

lol!
raj87verma88
raj87verma88 • Jan 12, 2009
Or we can write big words about Biggie being the owner/head of CE. CE is the most rapidly growing engineering firm with many projects in line. Our partners include...(some names from the Small Talk).
Man, that's the most boring pick up line! All girls (except female engineers) would run away.

πŸ˜›

Since Asin is in the entertainment business.. you gotta impress her likewise. Oh, how about those Youtube vids of biggie playing guitar?? That might work.. πŸ˜‰

And, maybe some bollywood dances as well. We can be his dancing gang.
raj87verma88
raj87verma88 • Jan 12, 2009
Count me out here. I can't dance. But yeah I can give Biggie Body Building Tips and teach him some cool Muay Thai moves.
raj87verma88
raj87verma88 • Jan 12, 2009
Anyway mentioning CE during chat would have been quite easy for Biggie as he practices it a lot. So I thought why not start him of with something he is comfortable in.
Is Asin the one who featuerd in Ghajini,is she also a big star dwon south,is she the one who has big teeths and does overacting....all in all she looks good,Orkut has a huge fan-club of her with over 5000 members!!!

Oh well, everybody has a weakness, I guess πŸ˜‰
yeah definately,she is a true south indian beauty,but sridevi and rekha had set very high standards...

My god Saurav, do you have any idea that you are walking on the blade of a sword. Biggie will ban you before you can say Asin. When you talk about her, then there is no place for a 'but'. I won't be able to save you for much long if you continue this way.
well I am praising her too,but i would like to hear comments of biggie he is keeping quite,afterwards watever he says i will agree!!!

Kaustubh Katdare • Jan 13, 2009
I mentioned about Asin in shoutbox and rest is all Ash's creation. She's pretty, I think. 😁
My creation? Come on.. *puts halo on head*
yeah Asin sure is a pretty actress and the good news is she is concentarting on hindi flim industry so we will see more of her,anyhow I should thank raj,he warned me about A-sin i was going to commit!!!

I know one person who will be visiting the movie theaters a lot. He may even stand in ticket counter 3 days before the movie's release date.
Dont say his name starts with 'K' these days ekta kapoor has ran out of luck...

raj87verma88 • Mar 11, 2009

Did Biggie just gave a "Sigh" or was it my imagination?πŸ˜›
Man we even have her pic on the forum now.
Kaustubh Katdare
Kaustubh Katdare • Mar 11, 2009
Oh boy! I'm speechless!
Nice interview ,But the questions are like cake walk very simple straight and to answer easily.
You should have asked some tricky questions through which you can a bit trouble biggie πŸ˜‰
i mean you should have asked more about Asin and his crushes.
Kaustubh Katdare
Kaustubh Katdare • Mar 12, 2009
