Independent India’s biggest structure that surpasses Rashtrapati Bhavan in size and equals it in grandeur is located in the Infosys campus, Mysore for training Infosys employees and new recruits before placements.

With a floor area of more than 9.6 lakh square feet, the new structure, designed by architect Hafiz Contractor, is the second unit of the Global Education Centre (GEC-II) of Infosys. It was described as the grandest and one of the biggest buildings constructed for the cream of Indian youth who will come here for study and training and make them feel proud.450-curvilinear-buildingwings

The Global Education Centre-II has been designed entirely on classical style of architecture with similarities to the Colosseum of Rome, while the pillars are reflective of the Parliament House. A large dome emerges from the centre of the structure and overlooks the entire campus and the structure reflects various ancient Greek and Roman architectural styles.

Given its infrastructure and size of operations, Infosys’s GEC is the largest corporate education centre in the world. Set on a sprawling 337 acre campus, Infosys’s educational and training hub has the capacity to train over 14,000 people at the same time. It is, in essence, an inception centre to thousands of Infosians who hail from all walks of life, diverse nationalities and cultures.1-dsc07045

A new car

A new car from Maruti Suzuki stable is ready to be launched on 16 Oct 2012. This “Alto 800” will replace its predecessor “Alto”, the most popular small car of India.   This new model looks like a well designed keeping the latest trends in mind. The car’s exterior looks so good that it may be a head turner when it hits the roads. Price is reasonably kept low to compete with other competitors Hyundai, Tata and Chevrolet. Mileage claimed about 23 KM per liter of petrol which is a plus point which every buyer takes into consideration before buying.  Considering all this, it may not be a flop like some of their models and will continue to be the best selling car like its predecessor.
