Wanna be techies-Ameerpet to America

To some the title might sound strange but that's how it is.First a small background on Ameerpet to Ameerpet
Ameerpet is a area in Hyderabad,India which is famous for software training institutes.America - I really do not need to say anything.
I recently came Hyderabad for sometime and thought of discovering Ameerpet.
The first impression that came to my mind after visiting the place was CRAZY. Indeed it is a crazy place. all around Ameerpet you will find training institutes. You name the technology and you will get it. Be it different modules of SAP or Oracle or Data warehousing,Mainframes,C etc, at least one training institute is available for you.You will be surprised to know that one street in Ameerpet is known as SAP street as it has the most concentration of SAP training institutes. This entire area is flooded with banners, posters, hoardings advertising about different institutes and the courses they offer. As the training institutes are in abundance,there is a cut throat competition for luring the students.All modes of payments are available for enrolling into any course. Installments option is there. Special discounts are offered for those who can make one shot payment of the entire course fee. Apart from this the fee can be further negotiated depending on your negotiating skills.
These training institutes have also created a market for cheap photo states, printouts and stationery You can find scores of shops offering these services. And when there are so many students visiting this place everyday how can the dhabhas and hotels be behind. They too have sprung up like mushrooms offering fast food to real meal to customised take aways.
You will find sea of people on the roads quickly making there way to training institutes.All the first time visitors predominantly comprising of peole who have come to inquired about the courses and training institutes will have a very confused look as this place is laid out in its most unorganised way. Some will have a very satisfied and happy look on their face as probaly they were successfull to find out the suitable institue for themselves.
Most of them have one dream get trained in Ameerpet and get a job in America. I really do not know how many of them are able to full fill this dream. But cretainly the experience of exploring this place was a great experience
