Teacher's Day Messages

Effulgence workshop On the 123rd birthday of Dr. Sarvepalli Radhkrishnan here we have the messages of some of our teachers registration started for all the KNITians. Dr. S.N. Mishra Head, Mechanical Engineering Department The path of education passes through the door of a teacher. A teacher with the help of knowledge and experience transforms an ordinary person into an important person, makes him able to face challenges of tomorrow, to give new direction to the fate of country. Today, education through the teacher has become a compulsory condition of life.

Dr. S.K. Sinha, Head, Electrical Engineering Department Teacher's day means, day of teachers to retrospect their way of teaching and accordingly guide Registrations for the workshops students also motivate them for a better future. during Effulgence has started, both online & offline. It is recieving a Dr. R.K. Singh, Head, Electronics Engineering Department very enthusiastic response especially I would like to say that the years I have been here, KNIT has always followed its trend of respect that binds all from the 1st year students. the students here and passouts to their teachers and juniors to their seniors. As recently this bonding is getting weak due to behaviour of students I would like them to follow the path of their seniors and maintain the TLSS introduced in prestige of the college.

the library

Dr. M.K.Gupta, Professor, Civil Engineering Department & Dean Academic Affairs Unless the scattered potential of the students gathers into a stream it can not become a force. Teachers ought to mould and influence the lives of their students but at the same time teachers also need support from the students to feel that their devotion and hard work is recognized.

Dr. Sameer Srivastava, Head, Computer Science & Engineering Department Our library is in the process of taking a long awaited step which will make the use of the library and issuing of books a less tedious job. Total Library Software System (TLSS) has been installed in the systems at the library. This system maintains the databases of all the staff & students, along with the subject, title and author of the books. A part of it, OPAC is active in the Pcs and can be used presently.

Since students are the mirror of teacher hence I expect from each & every student of knit to be sincere hard working & regular in the classes so that he can achieve the designed goal of life and enhance the prestige of institution

Dr. A. K. Singh, TPO Head My message for all our students is to put hard work in their learning process whether it is their curriculum or extracurricular. The students are expected to groom up their communication skill and general awareness to build their personality.

KNIT… A Host or a Guest???

KNIT is leading its way towards exploring new opportunities for the budding technocrats. It is going to host a technical extravaganza named, EFFULGENCE 2K11 this year. A large number of scintillating spirits will come to adore the fest with their excellence. This fest is intended to quench the thirst of fresh minds and bring out a genius inside them. Since many years, KNIT has been sending its students to various colleges to showcase their talents on the outer edge as well…and yes… KNITians have proved themselves too at the other front. It is after a long span of years that KNIT is again witnessing a series of mind boggling events through its technical festival - Effulgence. On the competitive edge, comes the annual inter-college cultural festival of IIT- Kanpur, ANTARAGINI. It may be called a coincidence that the two are occurring on the same dates from 13th -16th October, 2011. Now the question arises - Is it better to host My laptop too is scared of the a fest rather than being greeted by some other college for the same? A question that upcoming sessionals. is humming most of the KNITian minds these days. Our By : Khushboo Gupta, IT, II Year students have always performed well in the college premises or on the outskirts of the campus, be it the technical or cultural activities. The thing that needs discussion is the need to go to other colleges, be it IIT or anything else, when your You may mail your reviews, college itself is hosting such a big event. comments & articles, to the There are three types of activities that makes one a complete new mail id : student in his college life - curricular; co-curricular; extrad.iconknit@gmail.com curricular.

The last one includes the extra activities that help him in overall development of the

personality whether it is literary, sports, or cultural activities. Thus a student should prioritize his college life in the respective sequence. Being a technical student, our foremost priority lies in seeking the technical education. Technical events related to computer science, building circuits and even workshops are of great help in the professional field. They are meant to teach and squeeze out the technical aroma which is lying underneath. This is an era of innovative ideas and technological revolution. So, it is good for us to learn new things and utilize our full potential in everything we do. Now if it is about Participating or Organizing we are to choose among, as per experience of expertise, organizing is more significant than the latter one. The management skills one grooms up to organize his/her event makes him/her more capable to visualization. In a way we can understand participation as the first ladder of learning and organizing the second. Hereby, the golden opportunity of managing an inter-college national level Tech-fest should not be lost. A technical fest like Effulgence 2K11 does not happen every year. The fresher minds have got a golden opportunity to be a part of it as it happens just once in every four years. That means we can witness this event once in our college life. Cultural events are an evergreen fiesta, technical events are not. According to the Information theory, a less probable event carries more information. Likewise, a tech-fest in the college embarks upon you the cluster of knowledge. Who knows when we will get the next chance to be a part of a national level fest in our own college??So come and work will full enthusiasm to make the event a grand success thus, opening new doors of progress and prosperity.


TPO BULLETIN NAUKRI @ KNIT Established in 1997, Soma Enterprise Limited (“Soma”), a Hyderabadbased engineering and construction firm, is one of the largest and fastest growing infrastructure developers in India. With an order book of US $3.1 billion, it is a leading player in the infrastructure construction industry, specializing in multi-disciplinary engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contracts across segments such as roads, irrigation, hydropower and urban infrastructure.

MISC-TALK COUNTDOWN BEGINS FOR EFFULGENCE

With less than 15 days to go, the preparations for Effulgence 2K11 are in full swing as the whole of KNIT gears up together for the most awaited extravaganza of the college. After the long wait of 6 years its time now to leave no stone unturned to make it one of the most successful & cherish able event in the history of institute. While the registration for different workshops are being done in the alumni hall throughout the day, the co-ordinators of different events can be seen running from their hostels to the workshop, with their equipments, preparing for their respective events. The third year & final year students have began

mentoring the first year students by organizing small workshops & demo-classes. While guiding the juniors to manage & coordinate different events too. There are certain groups of students keeping an eye on the arrangements regarding the hospitality concerns of all guests arriving from different college all over the country. There are certain dedicated student who have worked hard for arranging the sponsorship from different sources like, Banks, Organizations, Media Groups and many more, and now the promotional team is working hard to promote the event not only in nearby regions but also beyond the boundaries of U.P.

Apart from all the event management, there is serious planning for the accommodation, hospitality & security concerns of the fest. Nagar Nigam has been approached for meeting the cleanliness requirements of the campus of the campus & positive response has been received by the Nagar Nigam chairman Mr. Praveen Kumar Agarwal. Also, there has been the formation of ''Saviours The Salvation Group'' security team including The Eagle Hunters & local policemen. So, with all the high spirits & enthusiastic preparations; let's hope to live one of most beautiful moments of our college life with 2K11.

TCS Knocks The Doors Of Knit... We were so eagerly waiting to descry the sixth semester results, but something quite contrary to our expectations occurred and we came to know TCS is coming for campus recruitment .This news shook the very foundations of Gargi , Aryabhatta and Ramanujam hostel. There was expression of fear and awe on each and every face. The students felt entangled in a questionnaire trying to feed on their encephalon, “What subjects to make Area Of Interest...?”, “What criteria will be applied...?”, “Which hobbies should I choose...?” and of course the most primary was the indefinite search of the most appropriate TCS Patterns. Phones started ringing from Sultanpur to Hyderabad, Chennai, Bangalore, Mumbai and so on, enquiring seniors of their experience and advice. Planning and scheduling are the most staple and nascent activities towards management of studies. We must admit to the fact that till the day before interview many new versions and variants of our planned schedules were configured. Keeping aside humour for a moment, there was an intense wave of deadly tranquillity all around. Though the level of preparation and study hours were crossing the highest watermark but the cohesion towards movies, Counter Strike and Table Tennis surpasses all others.

ENGINEERS’ DAY This month we, the future engineers had a special day of ours. Not all of us remembered the day and who did, just messaged their friends without realizing the importance of this very day. Of course we all were busy with the TCS visit. Yet, many of us were getting the real feel of the day going through the rounds of interviews and stepping on the next ladder of holding the B. Tech degree. Very few of us know that Engineer's Day is celebrated on September 15, in the honor of Sir Mokshagundam Visvesvarayya (1861-1962), who was a notable Indian engineer, a scholar, and a statesman.He was responsible for successful design and construction of several dams, bridges and implementing irrigation and drinking water schemes all over India. He was also the founder of IEI (Institution of Engineers, India). An engineer is one who utilizes all his skill and knowledge to upgrade the lives of people and to strengthen a nation in technical, economical and infrastructural aspects. The practical approach should not be treated as an enclitic; rather it should be mingled along with the theoretical one. This profession is piquant enough to attract large mass of sprouting encephalon from a very tender age. But now it seems engineering has turned into commercialized education in INDIA. Focus has shifted from innovation or construction to merely a degree. It's not like that the students are trying to spoil themselves but, they want to prove them as cool and trendy rather than being a true engineer. They want to avoid anfractuous ways and pop into shortcuts. The question here arises "Are we, the KNITians proving ourselves true engineers?"The answer is "YES", in KNIT we are training ourselves night and day to meet the challenges of the future competitive world. Engineers portray the country's future scenario. Engineer's Day should be a day in which all zesty minds in engineering sector should be treated with zealous by the authorities. The technical minds have got the potential to transform their nation from developing to the developed.

We had the knowledge of TCS coming on 8th September; each and every person was striving hard to succeed in the first combat of competition. No matter how much time a student is given, he wants more and our prayers were granted by the almighty God and he blessed us with news of TCS being delayed till 14 of September. Though the extension was merely one week but it was magnificently manifested to be longer. It seemed as if the eclipse of fear and taciturn atmosphere could not cast its grotesque spell that day and it was marked with immense merriment. Well there is one element going under the Oblivion's curse, let's not forget it. It was the selection of interview attire. The aggressive quest began for the best formal shirts, trousers , suits and foot wares and ended up in some quality wardrobe. Finally the day arrived 13 of September next day was 'The Day Of Judgement' written examination and direct interview of those satisfying the criteria of being first five topper of CS, IT, EC, EE, MCA and those having academic profile of consistent aggregate 75+ throughout 10th, 12th, 3rd year B. Tech results. The pre-placement talk in morning 14 of September, attendance to which is a requisite to answer the question “Why you want to join TCS?” an obvious question in the interview. Mr. Mohit Arora and Mr. Sandeep Tiwari were part of the recruiting team, they really encouraged us and the fact that they are our alumni, kept us high spirited. At noon the battle commenced some students entered their respective

panels for interview armoured by their folder whereas some moved towards their written exam terminals drenched to the skin in rain. As soon as the warriors came out of their battle field they were shot by a volley of questions “What were you asked?”, “Were you able to answer?”, “How is the nature of the panel?”. All were answered. In a nutshell confidence and optimistic attitude is what TCS seeks in the candidates. The third year volunteers had really tough time reducing our volume. This combat for survival continued late night and started early next morning and continued till evening. In the evening every one seated themselves at CSA hall shivering with fear of subjugation. Mr. Abhishek Srivastava, the HR of TCS ascended the stage and started announcing the shortlisted. When the list started and ended we could not figure out. Each and every person was uniting his soul and mind and keeping faith in God and listening to the names with full concentration and expecting his name to be announced next. Out of 260 students who sat for written exam 95 cleared it and out of 31 who gave direct interview 26 passed. Thus 121 were the fortunate ones to receive the TCS offer laurel. The victors and vanquished both lay in ruins as it is mean act to rejoice when our friends are in remorse. Future is unforeseen there is only one thing we can do and that is to do justice with the situation and keep on striving till the antidote of success, which relieves us of the pangs of rejection is achieved.

ALUMNI INTERVIEW Mr. Sushil Kr. Srivastava is 1987 batch passout alumni of our college. In his student life he was one of the brightest ones in batch who scored high rank in G AT E a n d s u c c e s s f u l l y qualified Indian Engineering Services a year later. So, let us take you all to our conversation with him about his life. Ques: Please provide some details about your career line after college. Ans: After completing my graduation from KNIT, I did my post graduation from IIT Kanpur. During this period only, I appeared for Indian engineering services examination in 1988 and joined Indian Railway Services of Electrical Engineering in January 1990. Since then I am working with the Indian Railways. Ques: Tell us about your present life and family. Ans: Presently, I am posted at Research Design and Standards Organization of Indian Railways which is a premier organization of Indian Railway. I am living happily with my beautiful wife and the God has blessed us with a daughter and a son. Daughter is studying in class XIth and son is studying in class VIIIth. Ques: Enlighten us about (electrical) department at that time. Ans: All that I am today, is because of the hard work and teachings of my Guru jan of electrical department at that time, who have taught me about the electrical engineering and the other aspects of life. I am thankful to them. Ques: With no campus recruitment in your time what goal every engineers used to have in mind? Ans: The goals were being set by the individuals. Generally, joining PSUs and going for higher studies in India and abroad were the major goals we used to have. Nevertheless, appearing for GATE was almost everybody's aim. Ques: With not much sophisticated

infrastructure of KNIT what students used to do in order to groom their personality in curricular, co-curricular and extra-curricular fields? Ans: At that time, since there was no internet and cable TV, the focus was more on the physical activity and reading books. We used to play Volleyball, badminton etc. in the hostel. The usual time pass and meeting place was Javed's tea stall. Ques: How was your life in college and hostel? Ans: Fantastic. This is the only word which can describe it. We had lot of time for each other as this was the only way for our entertainment. We also did naughty things but this is not for everyone to know. Ques: How did you get your present post after passing out from KNIT? Ans: As I already told you, while studying at IIT Kanpur, I appeared for Indian Engineering Services examination in 1988 and joined Indian Railways. Ques: In KNIT, any classmate or teacher who had inspired you most? Ans: All of them. Everybody has taught me a lesson. But I will tell you a secret; we were really scared of our hostel warden Sri A. K. Singh. Ques: Any mischievous or special moment of your college life? Ans: There are many such moments. One I remember particularly is the day when the results of GATE exam were out. I did very well in that. The result was told to me by my friends in the hostel and everybody was asking how you did that. Ques: At present time, KNIT is progressing, you can see the newsletter, and how you feel about it /any suggestion? Ans: I am really very happy with the progress of “My” institute. I know KNITians are doing very good wherever they are. I feel proud of it. Ques: A message for the youth of KNIT. Ans: “You are studying in one of the premier institution. You should feel proud of it and keep working hard.”

8 PAGES FOR KNIT

Mohini Gupta, EL, Final Year

Four months ago something unexpected happened here. A bunch of people with a single starting thought, worked and handed all KNITian family eight hardcopy printed pages of their own. It's today their drishtICONe. Here I am not typing any promotional article for this newsletter or depicting what and why it is because its not needed anymore. What I am trying to enlighten is the transition of the innovation to the trend here. Yes, these eight pages have got tremendous transitional success and no doubt it is on the way to become the trend here. Talking about the first edition, I can't forget how we conjured up articles to stretch over these eight pages. I myself wrote two articles as more than that wouldn't be a good impression. Besides that all my team members were requested to awaken their literary skills and produce articles anyhow. I feel amused remembering that when we sat for designing (with ample of articles, as we thought) we found ourselves quizzed at the end because of lots of space still remained. Only one question was hovering over minds that time- “Do KNITians have such less writing skills?” or ”Do

Question of the Edition Do the juniors need extra help from their seniors in academics and is there a need for extra classes to be organized by the seniors? Send in your thoughts or comments to the above question on our mail id d.iconknit@gmail.com Some of the posts will be published in the next edition.

KNITians not have enough ideas to produce?” Well our edition got delayed due this cause five days in this process to fill spaces and editing. In this due course things took time but have definitely changed. Today is the reach of these eight pages that we were finding a hard nut to crack in choosing amongst the articles we got for this edition. I have put these words not to showcase our success or popularity, but to clear the myth of many minds of our college, that to get something changed we need to hold up with dedication and patience. There were frames of mind prevailing in usual thoughts and conversation like 'hume pta hai kuch ni hone wala'. One thing is sure now that we are witnessing a transition in our college so it would be best for us to accept it and say a goodbye to our mentalities before. The kind of response we are getting with such deep and toned thoughts that we are compelled to ask ourselves, “Where were these embellished views hidden?” With the suggestions of many students we have modified this edition and included some new columns also and will continue to modify according to the expectations. Today I can gladly say that the eye of KNIT drishtICONe has got a better and bigger frame of perception. If just three editions have made me say this confidently, I expect you all to read better news sooner. Now we are in need to continue our journey with more than eight pages as it is harder to platform the rousing voices in the form of articles. There is nowhere all good and wise reside. Wherever we will go, wise and unwise faces lie along, what we need is to grab a torch or laser if you want, to search the good ones and move with them. The rest would simply follow the good ones sooner or later. So friends, try and start believing this- if you want you may become a Transitioner like these eight pages. This is not the success of eight pages; it is the uproar of sleeping youth here saying I was waiting to be heard. So this is cheers to voices of KNIT!!

IS THAT YOUR LUCK Or… Anshuman Shukla, CSE, II year So guys….Is that luck or something else when you are stern enough to rock your exams and a guy conceived naïve proves backing you...Or when you prepare your level best for something and someone visibly ignorant, nonchalant whacks you hard..or our Indian Team chasing for 4 runs in 2 balls and 1 wicket in hand, that soon crumbles…inherent attitude to yearn more & more and on being eluded babbling that “luck wasn't our side” blah blah…Well now or then everybody's telencephalon neurons are obsessed to ponder DOES LUCK MATTER?.... its not being melodramatic, its what the truth is. “O father! Bestow on me luck, May never comes the time when I have to sulk. Enough to reach success pinnacle, Prepared for all havocs to tackle.” But zenith of dream accomplishment couldn't be contemplated on just Luck…Something else is very much required & that is 'EFFORT' and our transition from being innocuous & mellowed to a guy tough in attitude striving hard for savoring the tastiest crimson fruit, 'SUCCESS'…world known!!!!!! Its best is epitome Lord Krishna who being impeccable in every aspect suffered much but eventually was at acme of success. His beautiful message to all while Mahabharata using Aruba as medium conveyed“Karma Kiye Jaa Phal Ki Chinta Mat Kar Aye Insaan, Jaise Karma Karega Waise Phal Dega Bhagwan.” And so what matters is “KARMA.” But still it is not deciphered by a much lot especially in India. A heavy mass among us is driven & dominated by perceptions circling fortune. Every morrow people go through daily horoscope in newspaper and according to their zodiac's prediction plan their day. And the levels pesky those people are; only those who experience their company could wonder. Loping to my high schools… we were X-5 adroit: me, Bilal, Amos, Shubh and Rahul. Well Shubh was among such and I could see his escalating belief on Luck was making him more and more pessimist. We used to play volleyball, that day we had I/H volleyball competition scores 14-13, we required just 1 point to thrash the opposing team, we were all set, hands in position, focused on serve and on that very moment a black cat crossed our court and Shubh shouted 'ab tohh gaye' and yes ball came to him and he dropped… Not the cat but the luck and omens dominated mind was accolade for our flunk. I never fully dispatch the thought of destiny but we can't control it. Trust your soul now and here, no day but today, sow the seeds of deeds and reap your fortune .Its choice, not chance that determines destiny. Also hard times you go through builds character, tohh we couldn't term it UNLUCKY!!! Let not the aroma of success tantalize you, Pull up your socks, it's meant just for YOU……. Blame not the Luck, pertaining ordeals or being vanquished It's what you have sown, that only you reaped…

Bribery Kriti Singh, CS, I year As a small child, we used to go to the temples of our localities along with our mothers. Those temples would be too small and situated at any corner of the road. Even now sometimes we prefer to visit those places. Cars and cows used it as a traffic island which helps them navigate past each other. The devotees visiting it also used it as a navigational aid in getting past the obstacles of life. My mother is not, in particular, a devout person. I can't appreciate the finer points of theology but it seems to us generally that their attitude to religion is more of the nature of pragmatisms and piety. My mother would buy a marigold garland and some sweets from the vendors who squatted on the pavements near temples. The flowers and sweets would be handed over to the priest-a wizened man with shrewd eyes and an Aura of Tulsi-Water-who offered them to the resident deity. Shut your eyes and say a prayer? We are often guided and my younger brother would immediately follow the instructions…but often he used to ask - what I will pray for??? and my mother would reply pray to be a good boy and ask for wisdom, knowledge and health. So he and I too would promptly follow the instructions given to us...by folding our hands and closing our eyes...to pray for wisdom and scholastic excellence. But Alas! Hardly have they worked. After all, what would you expect of stale flowers and a fistful of sticky sweets (batashas). So this never surprised me. Or maybe, the prayer of ours was too general to be not specific for the prayee - GOD, to pay even a bit of attention to it, who we thought of as a large, comforting, genderless presence, rather like a cuddly teddy with whom I used to sleep till date - except considerably larger - to respond to. He might be getting thousands, or may be infinitely many prayers, all over the world, in varying languages and forms - for all sorts of things. So what are the chances of our prayer to hit the jackpot? It really sounds comic - God is everywhere and see everything like a super snoop? What if it was none other than God - who was not only everywhere and saw everything but would also pretty shift everything about wherever and whenever at his whim - example who'd gone and put the bangles under the flower pot and keys in the ice box? It frequently happens... Why? Why else but to extract offerings from us? WAS GOD DEMANDING BRIBES??? I don't go much to religious places now, but I do believe in Him. But many people go, especially to make offerings. This is the explaining fact behind why religious establishments of all religions are one of the richest luxuries in the country - Tirupati is an example which equalizes the amount of gold in Fort Knot now. As with everything else inflation has caught up with prayers and offerings as well. A bunch of flowers and a fistful of sweets won't get us anywhere today. It probably takes in an ingot or two of gold to do the trick. To get the ultimate root of graft, with the Jan lokpal bill: include in its ambit the biggest graft generator of all, GOD......!!!!!

YOUTH SPARK KISLAY '11

06

By : Bhavya Jain, EL & Ankur Shukla, EE, II year

Hai dhara bhi aaj pulkit dekh sab sut nav puraane aur pavan paawan gagan, abhinand karne ko hai thane aapki hai ye nisha, aur aap iske hai sitaare aapka swagat kare hai aaj milke saath saare These were the lines echoing the CSA hall when the camperes begun with the Freshers' party KISLAY 2011. KISLAY-the event dedicated to the new buds of KNIT family tree, the event which imbibes in itself the synergy of the two pillars of development of institute & society - zeal and experience; the event which symbolises the great legacy of healthy juniorsenior relationship in KNIT. This is the first and the most awaited event of each year where whole of the college is introduced to their fresh new college mates for the first time. Presented after days and nights of hard practice sessions, this event presents a spectacular show of talents hidden inside the new members of this ever growing family of technocrats and the torch-bearers (teachers). It would be a statement of only a partial agreement if we say that KISLAY is the event for just the fresher students, infact this is the only event of our institute in which all branches of the KNIT tree work hard to bear sweet fruits. The first year students are obviously involved in the event, the second year also experiences the responsibility of instructing and guiding their immediate juniors for the first time. The third and the final year play a very important role of selecting the talents and providing their experiences and knowledge to their juniors for their better understanding. Last but never the least the

respected faculty of KNIT, CSA Convenor, Dean of Student Welfare (under whom this event if conducted), all play their significant roles in both guiding all the students while simultaneously protecting the first year from any unwanted activity.

Beginning the event with a briefing of the Dean of Student Welfare and the Cultural Council, along with the holy prayer to Goddess Saraswati and the lighting up of the lamp by the Director, events taking place in this extravaganza were melodious singing performances both duet and group, rocking and heart thumping dances which set the stage on fire, skit and poems full of messages and laughs. As per the traditions of KNIT, all the students of different branches from the first year were also introduced on the stage between the various events during the

Are you doing your bit? Practicals are done without electricity in labs “Save power, Save resources” Engineers are doing their bit.

Five batches are living in one Maitreyee Hostel “Deforestation is condemned” Management is doing its bit.

Guys write on desk and walls rather than paper “Save paper, Save trees” Guys are doing an extra bit.

Insects and students adjust in same rooms in hostel “Promote mutual relationship between animals and humans” In this case I guess both are doing their bit.

No water in taps of institute “Don't drink water at all…Save water , Save earth” People collectively are doing their bit.

Food in hostel is not worth eating “Eat less , Save food… Prevent famine elsewhere” Mess Management and staff is doing its bit.

Favourite hangout of KNITians Environmental Park “Ambassadors from KNIT create environmental awareness” KNITians are doing their bit.

Overall, in one way or the other, different sections of the institution contribute to these tribulations. “Lets discontinue doing these bits, to actually contribute to a better scenario”

Spot the Difference Question: What is the difference between two options on www.google.com- Google search and I'm felling lucky. Ans: Google Search will get you the all the Search Results for the Query you are looking for. When a user types in a search and clicks on the button I'm felling lucky the user will be taken directly to the first search result, bypassing the search engine results page. The thought is that if a user is "feeling lucky", the search engine will return the perfect match the first time without having to page through the search results. However, with the introduction of Google Instant, it is not possible to use the button properly unless the Google Instant function is switched off. According to a study by Tom Chavez of "Rapt", this feature costs Google $110 million a year as 1% of all searches use this feature and bypass all advertising. However, most of the users do not use the button so it doesn't create a significant loss. Question: What is the difference between webbrowsing and web-surfing? Ans: It's semantics. Skimming and scanning have both been confused over the years also. Browsing and surfing can probably be divided into the same sort of categories which are commonly used to refer to the process of getting on to the internet and finding our way through millions of websites to what we are looking for. Whether browsing or surfing, we perform same activities of watching documents, listening to music, or watching videos or movies on the internet. Browsing is more like skimming- just seeing what is available, getting a "feel" for what is out there.

Surfing is more like scanning. You are looking for something and must pay attention to what "pops up". Question: What Is the Difference Between the Internet and the Web? Answer: The Internet and the World Wide Web have a whole-to-part relationship. The Internet is the large container, and the Web is a part within the container. To be technically precise, the Net is the restaurant, and the Web is the most popular dish on the menu. The Internet is named for "interconnection of computer networks". It is a massive hardware combination of millions of personal, business, and governmental computers, all connected like roads and highways. The Internet started in the 1960's under the original name "ARPAnet" which was originally an experiment of the US military to maintain communications. With time, ARPAnet became a civilian experiment, connecting university mainframe computers for academic purposes. No single person or government has authority over its operations. Some technical rules and hardware/software standards enforce how people plug into the Internet, but for the most part, the Internet is a free and open broadcast medium of hardware networking. The Web Is a Big Collection of HTML Pages on the Internet. The World Wide Web, or "Web" for short, is that large software subset of the Internet dedicated to broadcasting HTML pages. The Web is viewed by using free software called web browsers. There are over 40 billion public web pages on the Web today.

function. Just like every year, this year also our creative Cultural Council had some mind blowing surprises for all of the college. The biggest of the surprises was the theme of this year's KISLAY, which was MANTHAN, symbolising the mixing of the fresh buds and the blossomed flowers. One of the distinct elements among which was the RAJASTHANI FOLK SONG presented by a group of four performers, which entertained the whole crowd present in the hall. Another striking feature of this year's party was the blend of the pious CLASSICAL with rocking WESTERN break dance performances, with a show stopping BELLY DANCE being the icing on the cake, which became the favourite of all the ones present there, filling the CSA with loud voices of 'once more!' Along with all the fun, the freshers' also included a taste of patriotism presented through an entertaining skit which tickled audience's ribs but left them with tears in eyes and a strong message in their hearts. The event was successfully coordinated by the meticulous comperes, to make it a success, by their awesome management skills, and word power. Hence, the culmination of KISLAY '11, marked the successful beginning of another academic year, the introduction to another batch of budding engineers and the new members our KNIT family. Man me bhara hai josh, ek naya vishwas hai Kuch naya karne ki chahat ab hamare pass hai Badh raha KNIT parivar, liyenit umange nirali KNIT ke is vriksh ki khil rahi hai dali dali

Are we the foreigners of India?

Debashree De, ME , III year

Earthquake rocked Sikkim on 18th October,2011. India stood up, all united, to help the affected in their own meek ways. Bihar donated Rs 5crore to help the Sikkim government and Uttarakhand donated Rs 3crore… Should anyone in our college, or any Indian for that matter, have a doubt that Sikkim or the Seven Sister states are part of India? Many incidents of attacks on India's northeastern people in KNIT remain shrouded in oblivion. With stars in their eyes, hordes of students from India's northeast region head towards KNIT during admission season. However, episodes of unsavory treatment of the northeastern people is what haunts most of them. It was a scorching noon when I and my friend walked down the supermarket lane and all of a sudden we heard the word “Chinese”. It indeed puzzled me for few minutes as I was not carrying any Chinese product with me. Amazed I turned to my friend Pema (name changed) but a I could see tears in her eyes just fighting their path out. The racist comment wouldn't have scathed me if it would have been just the comments of the discourteous gentry who are definitely meek demonstrators of national integrity and brobdingnagian (vast) knowledge of political map of India (ironical) but it's a common trend among some of our students too. Some of our batch-mates pass racist comments, verbally abuse our friends from north east due to their mongoloid features by calling them “Chinky” or ”Junglis” as they have come from jungles. But mind you even if they have come in from jungles they are more civilized as no one dares to eve tease them there. They are well respected in their region. Alas!some batch mates have storming new surprises for them here...If in the campus even some of the students are clung in this kind of racial prejudice then it will be just a mock of our culture. In contrast the north-eastern's don't comment on our dark complexion, our hesitating English grammar, prudent accent and most importantly our incapability to pronounce their name correctly. Rather they show direst of hospitality when we visit their place. At present the whole world speaks of rescue of quake hit victims in Sikkim. Whole India stands united why are eve teasers standing in the trench commenting on their features? This is just not the story of Pema but all my north eastern friends. Come out of racial prejudices as they make the best of friends. Stop being racist! Just remember “aapko apne hi desh mein koi mehmaan kahe to aapko kaisa lagega..?”


TECHTONIX A Complete website of your HI - FIVE own in just Rs.99 Top 5 cars of 2011

Subodh Jha, Final Year, EE

Gone are those days when hosting a website was considered a game of big techies. Here is the complete hitherto to make it possible in just Rs.99 Website development is very easy now days. It just involves two things buying a domain name and buying a web space. Buying a domain name means registering your domain name. Web space allocation as per your requirement is known as web hosting means on which servers you are going to put in your website data(Windows based or Linux based). The tertiary step is to Design a website project that can also be easily possible due to the open sources like Joomla etc. Even online site builders are there to choose your website from thousands of free templates and just edit them. The step one for making a good website is buying a good domain name. I suggest you go with xyz.in as this can be available in the market in as low as Rs99 from Bigrock.in, Unlimitedgb.com etc. First search out for your domain name availability at any of these sites and after that you need to buy the available domain from these Domain providers by paying online through Debit Card. Domain name company will provide you with some basic features like your domain name server or the nameserver. Its control panel includes many things but we will be concerned with only nameservers to build our cheap website. The Step two is just as easy as creating a new facebook profile. Just make a free account on any one of the following hosting providers to get web space totally free of cost freehostia.com, 000webhost.com, byethost.com, x10hosting.com. Isn't it chocolaty but make sure in the control panel of your hosting provider you get the valid information about the nameservers i.e. copy the nameserver1: dns.xyz.com & nameserver

ANDROID WATCH A SMARTPHONE Blue Sky has announced the I'm Watch, an Android 1.6-powered device that allows you to pair with your phone to make calls from your wrist. This means plentiful opportunities for James Bond style moments, just without the lasers and grappling hooks. The watch itself features a 1.54-inch touchscreen that brings loads of conventional smartphone applications and interactivity. There is a 4GB internal memory and 3.5 mm headphone jack, meaning you can carry music about in the watch. A Freescale IMX233 CPU and 64 megabytes of memory keep the watch ticking along nicely. As does a Li-Po 350 mAh battery which results in 30 hours of activity when Bluetooth is switched on.

2:dns2.xyz.com and paste it your Domain name providers which you have already purchased in the step 1 by opening edit nameservers page in your domain providers control panel. After parking your domain successfully to your hosting account all you have to do is just upload your website (if already constructed offline) in your web space & it will get published online. For designing don't worry No HTML, PHP coding knowledge is required. The step three guides how to create an artistic and really a decent website through many open sourcI prefer to use a software Artisteer .You can try Coffee Cup, Xara Webdesigner also. The first thing to keep in mind before creating a website is deciding its content, number of pages and template. Suppose you want to create a schools website, you need pages like Home, Campus, Teachers, Students, About us, Contact us. Design these web pages through the design packages like Adobe Dreamweaver or if you use Artisteer It will automatically export project as html website in a predetermined folder. You can also alter your WebPages created by Artisteer by using Dreamweaver. Make sure that the overall size of the pages of your website should be reasonable like 100400KB so that it may not take longer time to open your newly created website. As size is mainly due to image content, degrade the quality of images by using ADOBE PHOTOSHOP. Generally upload the html pages and other files to wwwroot or public_html folder. If still it is not showing your website online & you get message NOT FOUND 404 don't worry, check properly that your hosting control panel contains a list of default document and that contains the full name of your homepage document.

NEXT STEP IN NANO TECHNOLOGY: NANO-GRASS Scientists at Bell Labs, the research and development arm of Lucent Technologies have discovered an entirely new method to control the behavior of tiny liquid droplets by applying electrical charges to specially engineered silicon surfaces that resemble blades of grass, which they named as 'nano-grass'. The new technique of manipulating fluids has many potential applications, including thermal cooling of integrated circuits for powerful computers, novel photonic components for optical communications, and small, low-cost "lab-on-a-chip" sensor modules. Have you ever thought about a battery that wouldn't degrade overtime? Yes, Thomas Krupenkin, a physicist at Lucent explains that nano-grass may be used to create such type of battery. Another important advantage of nanograss is that it is also beneficial for our health.
