What happens in my bench during DSP class:
K.R-dutifully takes down notes, occasionally sends a msg or two, laughs at the jokes cracked by the others,listens to the lecture with an uncommon degree of interest and very rarely( I rem only one class where this happened-she actually was worse than kini tht day!) contributes to the nonsensical chatter, adds on to my extensions(dsp theories to life) when she's in the mood for it and gives me the why-on-earth-do-u-think-extrapolating-is-cool look everytime I come up with a lame one..
Zombie-the name is self-descriptive-scribbles random equations whenever she feels like, designs some new apparel(and asks kini if she'd like to wear something like tht) in her so-called 'notes' an…

So, Prof.Chetan Anand, one prof who can extrapolate DSP(Digital Signal Processing) concepts to life in different contexts, naturally turns out to be one prof I like and respect!
A few excerpts: 1.When explaining window functions: Life is like an infinite impulse response, but if you've to make sense out of it, you have to convert it to a finite impulse response, and for that you use the window technique.

If u want a beach view, choose to have a window which gives u just tht from ur house! If u want something else, then choose the position( and shape and width etc) acc. t…
