INGENIOUS RECORDS


A friend of mine, who was intensely religious, once asked me a Question, "If God Almighty were to appear before you and offer you two boons in place of all your wealth, what would you choose?" I pondered a while. Obviously, my choice of boons had to be powerful enough to re-build my capital. After much contemplation, I made my choice: ETERNAL ENTHUSIASM and PERSEVERANCE. For these are the Qualities that made me what I am. Excerpt from “Wheels & Wings” Autobiography

Founder Chairman

Dr. K. C. G. Verghese (1940-2006)


Preamble

The Birth of an Institution

In 1965, Late. Dr. K.C.G. Verghese took up teaching assignments in Automobile Engineering subjects at two educational institutes. His well-acquainted knowledge on the subject and inquisitiveness to the know-hows of the Automotive industry worldwide drew in a large number of students. While coaching for British Automobile Examination, Dr. K.C.G. Verghese realized that the standard of the examination was far below the level of our Indian Universities; and that our students could easily clear exams with minimum preparation. Students promised Dr. K.C.G. Verghese to bring over a hundred students from Singapore and Malaysia if he were to set up an institution on his own. The idea dawned upon Dr. K.C.G. Verghese as he felt the time has come to start his own venture—very soon, Hindustan Engineering Training Centre (HETC) was started in 1966 as an educational institution intended mainly for foreign students. This irresistible quest for knowledge eventually paved way for the commencement of other Institutions under the Hindustan Group of Institutions (HGI).

RANKINGS Ranked in Top 50 globally for SDG 6 – Clean Water and Sanitation, Top 100 for SDGs 7 - Affordable and Clean Energy and 12 – Responsible Consumption and Production and Top 300 under the overall category among other 800 universities globally in 2020.

Chancellor “An investment in knowledge paves the best interest” -Benjamin Franklin

e find that during this pandemic there is a surge in the quest for knowledge across all quarters of life. Hindustan Institute of Technology & Science has fulfilled the academic year 2019-20 taking in its stride the tumultuous change towards the end of this academic session and proved successful in its endeavour to excel in online teaching and learning. I am happy to note that HITS has continued to excel in all fields during the academic year 2019 -20. The various academic reforms and the sustained efforts of the HITS

academic fraternity have resulted in HITS achieving national and global recognition. HITS have secured the 107th Rank in Engineering and 20th Rank in Architecture in the recently conducted National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF) rankings by the Ministry of Human Resources Development. I am extremely proud that two of the top most global ranking agencies THE and QS have recognized HITS achievements. THE Impact Rankings 2020 have placed HITS on a pedestal in global rankings in four Sustainable Development Goals Categories. HITS emerged as the premier institution and Ranked 18th in the SDG6 (Clean Water and Sanitation); and is the sole University in India to Achieve the Highest Rank in the Category. This recognition is towards building a more sustainable and equitable society and it is heartening to note that 800 Universities and 85 Countries were in the fray for the reputed global rankings. QS E LEAD certification also certified HITS as one of the premier institutions of excellence for their tremendous contribution in online education that was an inevitable transformation during the pandemic. I appreciate the sincere and concerted efforts by all the department staff for conducting 425 online events, which included International and National Webinars, Workshops, Faculty Development Programmes, Professional Body Events, Competitions, Online Certification Programmes, Online Placement, Doctoral Committee Meetings, Research Promotion Webinars and Department Meetings. HITS has also partnered with COURSERA and edX to offer 5000+ courses free of cost, to promote learning by students and staff. Hindustan COVID warriors require a special appreciation and I am extremely elated to note that SEVILI – service robot was designed and developed by our engineers at HITS; and it was deployed in Govt. hospitals in Chengelpet and Chennai to assist the medical frontline handling COVID 19 patients. It is a well-known fact that social distancing and quarantine has been the norm of the day during the pandemic, HITS engineers deployed drones to assist the Chennai Police force, to get an aerial overview of the people who tried to break the norms of social distancing. Services to the society have been one of the primary goals of our educational institution as envisaged by our late Founder Chairman, Dr. KCG Verghese Hindustan has always been in the forefront to reach out to the needy and lend a helping hand in times of crisis. Monetary contribution to PM and CM Funds, distribution of food and essential commodities to villagers and migrants, two Scholarship Schemes for wards of COVID warriors who lost their lives, including a complete waiver of the Tuition Fee in the discipline of their choice and coverage of all expenses including boarding and lodging and monthly stipend. The concerted and committed efforts of the entire Hindustan fraternity have enabled this institution to scale greater and newer heights and achieve laurels in all spheres of its activities. I personally welcome all the aspirants who would like to join HITS for their new academic session. I congratulate the editorial team for compiling the HCELLENCE magazine 2020 in a meticulous manner.

PRO Chancellor

R

esurgence of Hcellence 2020 delights me and it's a matter of pride that Hindustan is making headway and carrying the rich legacy of Late Dr. KCG Verghese, FounderChairman, HGI far and wide through its accomplishments. The entire academic year 2019-20 has been tremendous with several awards being conferred on us, especially, “The Institute of the Year for Higher Education – South” Award by ASSOCHAM; “Institution Deploying Innovative Practices in Promoting Research & Innovation Amongst Faculty & Students” Award at I-TEC Conclave; and “Best University Award” under universities within a ranking of 100 in NIRF at the ThinkEdu Conclave. Similarly, we’ve attained 107th Rank in Engineering and 20th Rank in Architecture in NIRF 2020 Rankings by the Ministry of Human Resources Development. Although we enjoyed a terrific academic year, it has been quite challenging as well with the intervention of COVID-19 disrupting our academic plans. I firmly believe that consistent hard work and dedication will ultimately reach the destination called ‘Success’. With recurring lockdowns, our Faculty members exhibited proficiency in Online Teaching and have efficiently handled classes and evaluation as per schedule amidst all odds. Hindustan has made immense contributions to the society during this unprecedented pandemic. Innovations such as Sevili - the Service Robot, to navigate into Corona isolation wards at Government General Hospitals at Chennai and Chengalpet; Drones to monitor and restrain the movement of public during the lockdown and an exclusive Hindustan Camp Covid organized to distribute essentials worth over Rs. 1.2 Crores to the underprivileged, are a testimony of our constant endeavour to serve society and the nation at large. This year several conferences, seminars and cultural programmes were organized and notably among them was AeSI’s 70th Annual General Meeting and National Conference on “Recent Developments in Aerospace & Defence Technology” organized during February 2020 in which Dr. K. Sivan, Chairman, ISRO was conferred the “Outstanding Leader in Aerospace and Defence Award” by the Hon’ble Governor of Tamil Nadu, Mr. Banwarilal Purohit.

Students have performed exceptionally well and attained outstanding laurels in International and National arenas. To name a few, Team "Kratos" secured 11th position at the International in the SAE Aero Design East 2020 organized at Florida Air Museum at Lakeland, Florida, USA; Team Stalwartz won “Cost Award” at BAJA 2020 SAEINDIA, in Pithampur, MP and Team MBA bagged Runner Trophy in the 11th ABBS BRICS Meet held at China. These have instilled a winning spirit amongst our students. In Hindustan, emphasis is laid not only on the quality of education, but on development of necessary skills with integration of entrepreneurship training into our curriculum. Our continued endeavours to excel has penned a saga of success. Hearty congratulations to all the achievers of the year and best wishes to all!

Vice Chancellor

I

am happy to pen down a few lines as a message in the HITS’ annual Magazine - Hcellence 2020. The magazine details the achievements during the last one year and keeps us hankering for more excellence and fulfilment in the future. HITS has received several awards and accolades during this year, the most important among them is that we have secured the 107th rank in Engineering and 20th rank in Architecture in the recently announced National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF) Rankings – 2020.

Several new initiatives such as “One Faculty One Industry” scheme, Research@UG, etc. were introduced to improve the academic standards of the University. The HITS LMS (MOODLE) and MS TEAMS Platforms were successfully used for the conduct of classes online towards completion of classes of the last part of even semester 2019-20 which was necessitated due to the COVID pandemic situation. We have also successfully conducted internal assessment, Project Viva Examination and End Semester examination for the students through online mode during the lockdown period. Added to this, to convert the challenge to opportunity, 422 online events were organized during this lockdown period which includes expert talks by industry and academia, seminar, workshops and a conference. We have added the School of Design as new school which focuses on UG and PG courses in Communication, User Experience, Fashion Design, Visual Communication, & Interior Design. We have obtained the approval to start Open Distance Learning programmes in MBA and MCA. Our students have bagged several awards and prizes in various competitions held across the globe which are listed in detail in the Annual Report of the Magazine. HITS team have won 20 winner’s trophies and 10 Runners trophies in National/State level Intercollegiate and Inter University Basketball, Cricket, Football, Volleyball tournaments under Men and Women categories. The Centre for Automation and Robotics (ANRO) has developed SEVILI (Caretaker) a service robot to assist the medical frontline handling COVID19 patients and was employed at major hospitals in Tamil Nadu. The Department of Mechatronics has also developed an affordable protection from harmful viral and bacterial infections for the medical frontline when they work inside the critical care units for long hours. This system is uniquely designed for public health professionals to be used along with PPE, to fight against COVID-19 pandemic. The improvement in the teaching learning process by implementing several academic reforms, involvement of the faculty and students in carrying out research and dissemination of the same through publication in indexed journals, the involvement of the students in various extracurricular and co-curricular activities in the socially relevant projects, participation of the industry in the academic activities are the real mantras for this great achievement. The University Magazine “HCELLENCE 2020” will give glimpses of our achievements and strategic steps to achieve the same. We continue to strive hard to achieve greater heights with several initiatives and academic reforms supported by improvements in infrastructure.

W

hile I bask into the splendour of the yesteryears, a sense of fulfilment runs through me for having seen the victory Hindustan has stepped into.

The year 2019-20 was truly remarkable in terms of awards, achievements, and placements amidst the pandemic strike across the globe. Hindustan has acclaimed the “Best University Award” under universities within a ranking of 100 in NIRF at the ThinkEdu Conclave; the “Best Private University for Research & Innovation of the Year” Award at the Asia Education Summit; and conferred with “The Institute of the Year for Higher Education – South” Award by ASSOCHAM during 13th Higher Education Skill and Livelihood Conclave.

The Centre for Automation and Robotics developed a service robot, ‘Sevili’ to navigate to isolation wards; drones were donated to Tamil Nadu Police for surveillance; and over 5000 families were assisted with essential relief kits and groceries through the Covid Camp. I feel content that we could serve the needy in times of the crisis in association with Dr. KCG. Verghese Charitable Trust. The pandemic crisis and has also brought in an unanticipated new wave of online education. However, we quickly transformed into the groove of it; our classes and semester exams were conducted effectively. Change is riding in an accelerated speed—the present times have witnessed numerous changes in varied fields— Technology, Trade, Industry, Tourism, Education etc. As educators, we shoulder a huge responsibility to offer quality education along with requisite skills to meet the Industry requirements and the augmenting challenges of the nation. At Hindustan, we just rightly do that. I compliment all the staff and students on their accomplishment and wish them good luck for the next academic year & future. Heartiest congratulations on publishing of -Hcellence 2020!

REGISTRAR I feel proud that the year 2019-2020 has been a year of success for HITS. The achievements of HITS in 2019-2020 are remarkable and outstanding. The NIRF 2019 has rated HITS in 107th Position in India under the Engineering Category. HITS has also bagged awards under various categories in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).

Achievements:

»» »» »» »»

HITS has achieved ‘A’ Grade in NAAC Accreditation. The National Board of Accreditation has accredited five B.Tech Programmes. The MHRD recognized HITS as a Category-II University in India with several privileges. The Week, India Today, Competition Success Review have rated HITS one among top private Universities in India.

At this juncture, I would like to highlight the contribution made by HITS during the pandemic situation. The SEVILI robot of HITS was invented and used in Tamilnadu government hospitals to treat the COVID patients. HITS also launched Drishyam for crowd monitoring and control in Chennai during the lockdown. The NSS team distributed relief kits to the migrant labourers and poor people in the village. I heartily congratulate HITS for the tremendous achievement during the year 2019-2020. I wish HITS to win many more laurels in the forthcoming years. I also congratulate the editorial team for bringing out the HCELLENCE 2020.

Dr. Pon Ramalingam

DEAN (E&T) True to the quote by Dr. John G. Hibben “Education is the ability to meet life’s situations” it instantly connects with the present educational scenario. Due to the pandemic at the end of the academic year all educational institutions had to close down across the globe. HITS kept the pace of the teaching learning process by completely shifting to online pedagogy since April 2020. At a time when COVID-19 had shaken up the education sector and forced institutions to devise ways and means of grappling with the pandemic, the Hindustan Institute of Technology and Science, Chennai received E-(E-LEAD) Certification from the coveted QS IGAUGE for E-learning excellence. Online education and digital learning opportunities have the ability to contribute towards the democratisation of the higher education system with a strong emphasis on quality, accessibility, inclusivity, and excellence. It has been a year with significant achievements and remarkable improvements in all domains. I am proud to note that HITS has done exceedingly well in the rankings and secured 107th rank in Engineering and 20th rank in Architecture in the recently conducted National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF) rankings by the Ministry of Human Resources Development. Similarly, THE Impact Ranking 2020 ranked HITS 18th in SDG6 (Clean Water and Sanitation). HITS is the only institution in India to have achieved highest rank in this category. In the academic front there was a spurt in the educational events this year. It is a matter of pride that staff and students quickly adapted to virtual platform, since the HITS fraternity were already trained and accustomed to Blended Learning. It is really heartening to note that 132 programmes including International Conferences, International Workshops/ Seminars, National Conference, Webinars, Competitions, Guest Lectures, Research oriented programmes, and FDPs were organized. More than 420 online events were organized during the lockdown period. Staff and students had also a fabulous opportunity to do free online Coursera and EDex courses initiated and encouraged by the Management. The success of institution reflects the sustained efforts and commitment of the entire HITS fraternity guided by the authorities to excel no matter whatever hurdles come on the way. Education never stops and adaptation to novel situations has become the norm during this new normal. I wish the editorial team all the success for compiling this issue.

The Most Rt. Rev. Dr. Joseph Mar Thoma Metropolitan, The Metropolitan of the Malankara Mar Thoma Syrian Church, Thiruvalla The other day while I was travelling, the Chancellor of Hindustan University, Dr. Mrs. Elizabeth Verghese, called me and said, “Thirumeni, your 90th birthday is coming soon. When we wished to start an organization, in a small room in Kilpauk in 1967, you came and prayed for us. Today, it has grown to become Hindustan University.” The institution has grown to greater heights since then. I felt so happy to note that the college was coming up with Virtual Choir during the Pandemic. The Choir of Hindustan University along with their students and Alumni have sung this “Heal the World” by Michael Jackson. I was invited by this prestigious Hindustan Group to inaugurate the rendition of this Virtual Choir; and I agreed happily to their request. Later, the Chancellor of the University said they would like to donate Rs. 10 lakhs as a gift on my birthday. They wanted me to use this money for any project that I would like to use it for. I humbly accepted and informed the Sabha Secretary. The Sabha Council decided to build a complex and the money could be used for it in addition to the budget. And today, I am happy to lay the foundation stone for this building in this auspicious occasion, and in the name of the Holy Trinity, I am able to entrust this into the hands of the Sabha Trustees. Many wishes to Hindustan University! I pray, the Almighty gives all blessings to the University to attain greater heights. May it continue its remarkable services, and act as a pillar of support to the needy and society at large.

Dr. Peter Koenig

Professor, Trier University of Applied Sciences, Germany.

When I visited Hindustan Institute of Technology & Sciences first time during the FISITA Congress in Chennai, I was very impressed about the passion and energy of students, professors and staff. Their extraordinary welcoming and cooperative way and the strong and visionary mindset of the HITS leadership convinced us to define a Joint Academic and Research Project within the area of Automotive Technology and successfully apply for a significant funding at the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) a year ago. Facing the actual global political instabilities and the urgent need for joint social, economical, environmental and technological solution, we need to provide our junior researchers and students with an improved intercultural understanding, technological excellence and the belief in successful long-term partnerships. Today, one year and many personal visits and video-conferences later, we may be proud as we have been successful in supporting a strong Indo-German partnership. We, as Trier University are proud to have you as a strategic academic partner - and as a friend. Against this background, we are looking forward to further cooperating with you and extending our partnership! Please keep your passion and stay as energetic as you are!”

Dr. Colin Okashimo

Founder, Okashimo Pte Ltd., Singapore It was a pleasure and honour to give my lecture titled “ The Power of Pause for Place-Making” to the various Architectural students and faculty of the Bachelor of Architecture programme at the Hindustan Institute of Technology and Science, India. As my first Online Lecture, it posed a unique challenge as I typically rely on the physical reaction of the audience to gauge the pace and depth that I should deliver. Without that ‘feedback’ I decided I would dwell to the most in-depth explanations of my processes and methodologies. I was pleasantly surprised that the lecture was well-received and understood evidenced by the depth of the questions asked at the end of the lecture as well as by text from other students that could not fit in their questions within the Q&A period. It is hoped that in the future, in-person Design Workshop/Sessions can build upon that which I lectured, in order that it is experienced rather than just talked about. Remembering that experiential research is key and taking back time to pause, reflect and meditate during the process allows for pristine encounters and revelatory moments to reveal the essence of a place and test the solution one is seeking. Best wishes to Hindustan University!

I want to thank you for including me with the School of Architecture Studio this semester as your students took on the challenge of designing a 5-Star Hotel and luxury Apartments. It was a big task; but I believe the students stepped up and developed some very interesting concepts. What I truly liked about the approach was, it’s an actual project, and sits on an actual site and you used an actual Ritz Carlton programme for the students to see, and begin to understand the complexities of a mixed-use development. This is something they will be able to take with them as they start their professional careers. Also, the intricate nature of designing a hotel, with its guests, staff and service uses will give them a unique understanding of how to approach complex design problems in the future. As mentioned, I believe this semester was a very unique opportunity for the students and I believe they will cherish as they become licensed Architects. I appreciate you inviting me to review their drawings, and I would been keen to participate again if you believe I could be of service. Also, I would like to thank the faculty at Hindustan University for the hospitality given to me during my visit. Good luck!

Mr. VK Mathews.

Executive Chairman, IBS Group, Trivandrum. It is a pleasure and privilege to participate in the Convocation and my sincere thanks for considering me worthy of the Honoris Causa degree. The world is shaken by economic uncertainties, and disruptive innovations that have changed the paradigm of comfort and permanency. With emerging technologies, 50% of human jobs can be automated; which most likely means the same percent of deprivation in job opportunities. I beseech all the young the graduates to technically upgrade themselves, intellectually consume more every day, and learn to live with technology and machines. All the very best for HITS and to all the graduates and students.

Mr. Bala K Baradwaj

Managing Director, Boeing India Engineering & Technology Centre, Bengaluru & President SAEINDIA Very honoured and happy to be part of the 10th Convocation. I’m very impressed by the dedication of the leaders and officers of HITS in creating the next generation of young educated Engineers, Technologists, Scientists, and other professionals. Ambition, Bravery backed up by Commitment is the ABC formula for success. As much as we take from the society, we must also ensure our contribution paid back in double. I urge the graduates to take a moment to recall and reflect on their journey till today and express their due gratitude to family, teachers, and well-wishers for being their spine. Hindustan has the potential to go to much higher level. I wish all the best and success in future!

School Report

Mr. N. Krishnamurthy

Founder/CEO, Plant Control & Automation Technologies. I had an opportunity recently to be an External Examiner for final year EEE students of Hindustan University. First of all, I consider it as a great honour. Projects chosen were very good; most of them industry oriented. The very fact that students answered my question satisfactorily showed not only their dedication, but also that of the faculty who had trained them. Critical evaluation method had been set by the department extremely well. I also understand that many of them have got placement from reputed companies. I congratulate Dr. Uppu Ramachandriah, Head, EEE & his team, & the Management of the University for this achievement. I can easily infer that the university focuses not only on the curriculum but also on the future of the students and prepares them for a challenging career.

Mr. Joshua David M. D.

Hexaware Technologies, Chennai Recruitment Manager APAC

It is indeed a great pleasure being a part of Hindustan Institute of Technology & Science placements during 2019-2020 campus season from Hexaware Technologies, Chennai. The Chennai campus is obviously one of the greatest attractions to Corporates because of the best in class infrastructure clubbed in with the course curriculum. We had a vision-oriented interaction with the college Management, HoDs and Faculty members of different branches during our visit as well. The unique quality of the students is their discipline during the course of hiring process. Starting from the Pre-Placement Talk, Online Assessment, Group Discussion, Interviews, we have been assigned separate conference rooms for conducting flawless interview coordination. Interestingly, we had a premium set of Lab facilities to conduct online test for all the students at a time and made our jobs easier. I also appreciate the fact that the Placement Team and its coordination with other departments to get in students’ availability for the process is commendable. Over all, it’s a delightful experience to be part of this college. Finally, during this lockdown, from the Corporate Connect Programme, the college Management and Placements Team had organized a Webinar on “Skills needed in Today’s Workspace” on 28 May 2020. By this initiative, we addressed all the pre-final year students and gave them a heads-up on what’s the New Normal currently the industry is stepping towards, how Digital Footprint is going to change the landscape of every student, and how students should get acclimatize to the Virtual world of hiring. So, all these corporate connect initiatives will definitely bridge the gap between industryacademia and pay way for betterment of students’ community on the whole. I wish the Hindustan and the Management a great future!

I believe a good education system can help students to transform their dreams into reality. In that sense, I’m glad I did my Aerospace Engineering in Hindustan University. The support I got from my Professors and the guidance I received from them played a major role in my success. Thanks to Hindustan for giving me a rewarding experience!

Pencil Sketch is a freehand drawing that is not usually intended as a finished work. It brings imaginations alive through pencil. I always had this passion for sketches and that’s how I indulged myself in it. Pencil sketch is all about portrayal of an object with variation in pencil shades. Madhubani Art is a style of Indian painting, practiced in the Mithila region of the Indian subcontinent. It is considered to be one of the oldest forms of Ethnic Indian art. The beauty of this artwork lies in the imperfection and vibrant ethnic colours used. Any colouring medium can be used for this particular art.

We know that India is a land of agriculture. Almost 60% of the people in India are from agricultural background. Each and every person in India is dependent on farming. Now-a-days people are attracting to the coming technologies and forgetting about farming; and we are aware that any given day, we always need the backup of agriculture. Our country consumes a greater number of foods compared to others. Our government focuses more on the food preserving process, and are least concerned bothering about the agricultural lands and farmers. Many cut trees and build, some stop farming and sell their lands for construction of industries. We use harmful fertilizers for plant growth and invite different types of health diseases like cancer. We have to improve organic foods in our India. India once exported lot of food products to Japan; but now, we are importing natural resources from other countries. It is our responsibility to safeguard farming in our country. Several graduates, especially, engineers, go back to agriculture quitting their job realizing the need of it, let us held our helping hand too.

Hyper Focus

Focus is the key to success, your energy flow where your attention is. By choosing an important object of attention, one eliminates distractions which will inevitably arise, and focus on just a task. Hyper focus is deliberate, undistracted and quick to refocus, leading us to become completely immersed in our work. “Attentional space” is the term which plays a vital role in hyper focus mode and also to describe the amount of mental energy we have to focus on and process things in the moment. Our success does not depend on our goals, it all depends on the day to day task starting from the to-do list that we plan on work time. Therefore, executing any task requires attention with intention. Intention is the bouncer of one’s attentional space. The key principle to enter the hyper focus mode is to engage both your external environment and direct them towards a focused target/thing intentionally.

Life Maker When you have something, you don’t mind it. When you lost something, you don’t make it. Do act when you have it in your hands. Don’t act when you lost it in some hands. Think life is teaching you for something. But never ditching you for nothing. Angriness can lead to lose self-control. Loveliness can lead to lose self-respect. Sadness can lead to lose self-confidence. Only the delight in you gains it all!

At some point we get this feeling that this Universe is something beyond our understanding. No matter how far we get there's always a vast space yet to be explored. When this world offers us curiosity, we make a system to gain knowledge. In this system there are 2 groups: first one being 'tutors' and the second, 'learners'. Tutors are the ones who have already gained knowledge about the subject. However, it's important to understand that there's no possibility of total knowledge gain being a human. Experts of a subject only know whatever they've come across while studying it. Today, the education system is focused more on teaching than emphasizing on the newcomer to explore it themselves. Once a person is capable enough to read and understand things, he/she should be guided to explore about the stream they are interested in. Snapchat's CEO quoted, "India has lost creativity in their education system". There's a syllabus with any subject today. After completion there's a test which gives us a number. That number is taken as the end result. This ends the learning curve. Shouldn't the idea behind education system be generating curiosities and giving a path??

If you can dream, and Not make dreams your master; If you can think-and Not make thoughts your aim; If you can meet with triumph and disaster Treat these two imposters as same; If u can bear to hear the truth, you’re a speaker Twisted by knaves to make a top to fools, Or watch the things you gave your life to: broken, And stop and build’em up with worn-out fool.

Just Another Concerned Person’s Rant…… The rains have been rather late and erratic. Just like me in college. It’s really weird and scary. From the 10 years of consciousness in my 22 years of living on this planet, it’s pretty obvious that something’s up. The seasons I knew were on time and not too intense. Summers were a time where I could go out and play for the whole day and come home to some nice ice-cream. Now I can’t stay for more than 3 hours without getting a heat stroke. Monsoon were a time were sipping hot tea on the balcony while enjoying the smell of wet earth. Not to mention having a piping hot grilled corn by your side. Now I have to waddle in the waters that collected. Winter was the time for Christmas and nice cold morning walks. Now it’s a battle for retaining heat. Every. Single. Day. As I said, Seasons have become like me. Tardy and irregular. Now I wouldn’t want anyone to be like me. Much less the weather. Well maybe it’s just my perspective on the “timing” of the seasons. Some older than me might have different claims. But there’s one thing we agree though. That these days, it’s too intense. It’s like the weather is trying to overachieve in everything. Like that kid in class who overdramatizes with crave for attention. Well, maybe this is a way of Mother Nature trying to get our attention. To be honest, we messed up big time. Summer heat so hot that the forest catches on fire. Winters so that water freezes in the flush tanks of the toilets. You might not be bothered much about forest fires, but I bet you’ll be really concerned when your toilet doesn’t flush cause the water is frozen. Although this is for those northerners. Us south, are more irritated by the heat that we just don’t want to come out. So, all these things that are happening points to really obvious thing. Climate change. Now ignore what that guy in the white house says about this. Honestly, when did we start taking scientific advice from the guy who has the weirdest twitter account. Anyways, climate changes have been pretty common when taking into consideration the evolution we’ve witnessed. These were times when the surface was inhabitable. Now, looking at how things are going, it’s going to happen again. We’re actually in a position where we cannot return. We can try and figure out a way to fix it. But we don’t know if we can make it in time. My suggestion and prediction to the solution for this problem is interplanetary migration. The major problem on this planet is population. I know, we just can’t control ourselves, am I right? So, the concept is to shift a reasonable amount population to a planet which either has a habitable surface or somewhere we could build one. So, our current choice is Mars. Moon seems nice, but I’m rooting for Mars. The shifting will happen provided that there are resources for sustainability, obviously. So, after a part of the population is shifted, the rate at which resources are consumed will be decreased drastically. This might be the solution to bring back Earth to its regular self. I bet all the rich people will be the first ones to bail from this planet. Vijay Mallaya has got another place to run now. Anyways jokes aside, so our next goal is to improve space travel. I’m counting on you Elon. Worst case scenario, its apocalypse, either the human race is extinct or it’s Mad Max everywhere. I’m not saying that there’s no use in trying to help now. You should do what you can. If everyone can just join forces, we might be able to turn this around. But there will always be this kind of people who would rather let one of the largest rainforests burn so that they can develop that land. And there will be times more money will be donated to restoring a religious construction than helping save a rainforest. We can’t do much about these people. We can do our best and hope we get through this. It’s high time we take this seriously. Honestly in my opinion it’s more important than our grades. I might be a lazy guy, but I for sure am not going to give up. “I will never give up. Believe it” – Naruto Uzumaki

I like having things to do, but I hate having to do things You have that alluring project you've chosen to work for this semester, one with the deadline that's growing uncomfortably close because of your procrastination. A TV Show that you started watching with a brisk pace, now that you've disengaged because of workload. The predominant cause for this phenomenon is biding time for that one elusive moment to pull off an endeavour.

Word is a powerful four-letter combination. Words are the magical powers gifted to living beings. Words and actions are responsible for all existing good and bad. Words can be as beautiful as roses; but at the same time tear your skin as cactus. Words break you at times and in a different way help to heal too. Words can make you sad, but when spoken well, make you happy. Words can motivate you to achieve great heights; at times can demotivate you and deviate your path which lead to failure. Words are the means in which our feelings, concerns and thoughts reach the world. Words fetch you respect. If spoken heartless and in haste, you will get no respect, but sometimes a bonus—hatred. Words have the power to build any relationship and even break it depending upon the usage. In technical language, if your words are input to a source then your character will be the output. Words have powers to heal a person better than any medicine. With increased dosage, it may lead to death. Once you leave this world, you’ll be fondly remembered for the words spoken by you or deeply hated for the same. Remember: words can either stop a war or create it; They may get you fame or defame you as well. Words are the weapons gifted to human beings. It’s up to us to whether use it for good or bad. THINK THRICE BEFORE YOU UTTER YOUR WORDS!” Mr. Naveen Kumar

Ever and again we connive extrinsic tasks to take-up a bigger chunk of your sumptuous time which you settle upon in view of preference. At times picking an equitable preference is of paramount importance. In an effort to draw time effectively, try to prioritize exigent chores first and then impose the inferior succeeding. In this fashion, we can assort prime tasks with more headroom and approach them in a leeway manner. Procrastination manifests itself within every aspect of your life. You put off seeing the doctor while you are ill. Don't you forget to complete your assignment? Perhaps the stakes are higher than choosing to play PUBG instead of wrapping up the article that you're composing. Procrastination is such a pervasive element of the human experience, so commit to the task. Focus on doing, not avoiding. Tackle tasks as soon as they arise, rather than letting them build-up for another day. Mr. P. Tarun Simon Gnaniah 4th B.Tech. CSE

Every Drop Counts

It was a pleasant evening; I was walking along with my pet dog. Nearing sea, suddenly I heard a voice "Please help me, my son, I was waiting for a long time to feel the footprints of my sons!” I heard the voice, but none was around. The voice spoke again, “I am your "Mother Nature of the Sea". "You are the son of mine, Human. I felt a huge face with tinkles sand thickness shining like a sun in sea, and asked Mother Nature, “I have been living because you gave me everything to live on this earth. You are my mother; you are powerful than any other". Mother Nature of the Sea wept, “Every drop in me are your brothers and sisters: dying day by day because of you...

I might be powerful and engulf all in one giant wave, but would any mother kill her own blood? How can I kill you?” Mother Sea screamed in a painful voice. I realized that with dumping waste and chemicals into the sea, we’re destroying the abundant natural beauty of the sea and suffocate them to death. “You are destroying the home where I jumped and hopped in the glorious shinning sun and the mighty moon,” continued Mother Sea. She concluded, “I bear everything and I am giving my life to all of you my son, so that everyone can livelong”. I begged Mother Sear for forgiveness and assured to look after her until the last breath of my life. “Please, believe me!” “Oh mother, please don’t leave meeee.……...” I desperately cried. But she slowly disappeared into tiny drop with the feeble voice, “Each and every drop counts in this nature of Me!" and lost her life in the hands of mine. She probably knew she cannot be saved; and believe human words. How would she after all, when we perfectly repeat misdeeds? Mother sacrifices her life to the children, and so is Mother Nature of the Sea—both give their life to make their kith and kin live. It's our responsibility to save our Marine brothers and sisters. Every drop counts with the life so, let’s resolve not to waste the life of the water. By, Mr. R. Arun Kumar A son of Mother Nature of the Sea. 4th B.Tech. Aeronautical Engg.

The Great Depression No, I'm not talking about the economy, but our generation. Wars have been won and lost, economy dipped to the lowest depths, people were oppressed. Despite all of this, our ancestors seemed to have lived a "happy" life. Every generation has a special feature about them. Now, I'm not an expert on generations and their culture, but from my observations, at least of the people I'm surrounded with, I have noticed that we are the “saddest” generation! All the kids are depressed. Sure, some of it comes from the social media and need for constant attention, but a conversation with my father changed my views on the topic a little. "Life had a simpler meaning back then." He told me. It was then I realized that as time passed, the competition to win and succeed has increased too. Kids are told "bada naam karega"(translates to, you'll bring the family respect in the society) and brainwashed them into thinking that everyone can make it big. This is the fault with our generation, everyone wants to make it big without talent or hard work. Maybe if we were told right from the beginning that it was okay to be normal, then we'd just accept everything as it is and take the highs and lows of life as they are. There’s certainly nothing wrong in having a bad day and failing at times—life is a roller coaster: we do need the ups and downs to enjoy the complete ride!

Yes!!!

You’re a Beautiful Bud to be Blossomed Tomorrow... According to the Sanskrit phrase “matha, pitha, guru, deivam” ( i.e. mother, father, teacher, god ), people believed that was the order in which reverence should be given and were duly respected and treated by their children. Every parent has a unique role to play in this world. The mother should pour unconditional love to their children and teach good values to them. The father should protect and take care of the whole family. On the whole, both have the responsibility of molding their child to be a better human being in future. “You always have something in abundance even when you think you have nothing. what is it ?” ….Your Love….. We now live in a society where everyone is running towards the trap called money. So ultimately, the primary responsibility of the parents is failed here. Father, who is supposed to be the hero and an inspiration to their wards is now busy in search of money and hardly spares his time for family. Mother, the best caretaker once, now fails to give her full care to the ward. “Do you know what they really expect from you?”

…..Your Time….. Since, the little bud is missing parental care now. The kid will eventually try to seek a new companion to share feelings and overcome loneliness. But this doesn’t guarantee to be a good company all the time. Sometimes you will get led to a wrong company and end up doing bad deeds as we know from the famous phrase “An idle mind is the devil’s workshop”. Moreover, it is proven that two fifth of the idle people get addicted to alcohol, drugs and ruin their career. 14% of the people get into illegal activities and the remaining 14% sadly end up their life. From this study, only 20% percent of people are able to stand out of the box and emerge as winners. “Even a tree needs support to guide it’s path; so do you know what your kid needs from you?” ….Your Support…. I would like to refer a real incident which happened a few years back. A minor boy from the outskirts of South Delhi was looked after by his working sister, as his parents were working in different parts of the state. He rarely met his parents and later dropped out of the school at 11 and at 17 was arrested for involving in a gang rape of Jyoti Singh Pandey in a private bus in Delhi. This scenario not only affected his family but also created a great commotion among the country. Due to the dereliction of his parents, that boy failed to understand the real value of relationship and family bonding. “Do you know what is the vital factor in moulding a kid to be a good person?” ….Your Guidance…. Parenting is a tedious task. But in future, when you see your kids resembling you and turn out to be a gem to society, I assure you that there is nothing equivalent to that feeling in this world. Indeed, you will be completely effed. Every parent should never forget that God has blessed you with a beautiful child for a greater purpose. Realize that money is just a paper not a being to get attached. And pay attention to your best gift in this world: ...Your Beautiful Little Bud...

How to Banish Boredom?

Only boring people get bored. Grown-ups love saying this, but funny enough it is true. Fill your free time with fun activities, and you will find that you never need to hear those infuriating word “bored” again. Change Your Attitude: The first thing to do is adopt a 'PMA'meeting 'positive mental attitude'. Look at free time as a fabulous opportunity to do something fun and enjoy some quality 'you' time. Get Up: Don’t laze around in bed or on the sofa. Sitting around doing nothing will only make you feel miserable and even more bored. Get Moving: As soon as you start to feel bored, try and do some exercise. Exercise is a great way to lift your spirits and get yourself in the mood to find something fabulous to do. Why not create your own dance routine in your room or learn how to cook? If you don’t want to do something that adventurous, take a brisk walk around the park for some fresh air.

Get Fabulous: Consider this free time as an opportunity to make yourself even more fabulous than you already are. Reading and listening to new music are great ways to relax and pass the time and will give you something interesting to talk about the next time you see your friends.

“Oh, if someone writes a song, with a simple rhyme, Just a song, Where his feeling show…” The above lines are from the song “Let the music heal the soul” by Bruno Mars. If you ever listened to this song it poetically explains how music could manipulate our feelings and emotions. Often, we come across various situations that put us into varied emotions. Sometimes we could be depressed, left out, troubled or extremely happy or in the mood to dance. Even a sleep or your favorite activity could not change your mood, music could make a spin in the brain and its spontaneous that you don’t even feel that you were earlier in a different mood. There are lot of claims today saying that music could boost performance and productivity. Music can take the form of an old friend and comfort you through a loss or prepare you for a night out that you’re not sure you want to attend. From upbeat tunes to slow melodies, music’s impact on the mind is always positive whether the music you’re listening to is sad or happy. Music not only plays a part in moods and mentality; music always helps in physical aspects. Music can help in ways that some could not see as possible. It refreshes the body, mind and soul. Let’s see how it works. Body: For a study, researches took twenty-two patients of fibromyalgia and exposed them to relaxing pleasant music and to a control auditory condition. Through the study, researchers were able to see a reduction of pain and an increase in functional mobility. It portrays the power that music holds over the human body. Mind: Melodic Intonation Therapy, developed in 1973 uses music as a way to bring speech back into the Stroke victims through singing. Researchers came up with this method when they found that singing and speech are found in different parts of the brain. The melodic phrases helped to form the connection on the right side of their brains. Apart from this few studies, also shows that some genres of music could bring back memories or feelings that was once forgotten. This was very true since I myself have faced this. Some songs could take you back to those childhood memories. Soul: In life we all come across various experiences that could leave a lasting after effect on us, regardless the experience was a good or bad one. Sad music has shown positive impact on a person’s mood when they’re feeling down which sounds like making the person more depressed, but in reality, it can be comforting in a time of need. Music impacts on human beings has been larger than what we know. And, while music will always be entertaining, it also heals the soul.

Coffee Naps

A bad day with coffee is better than a good day without it. Coffee is world's most popular beverage and drug. The amount of people who consume and are addicted to coffee is over 80%,and over 2.25 billion cups of coffee is consumed globally every day. The interesting fact about coffee is that each person reacts differently to the caffeine in coffee. Some have slow metabolism and hence the effect last longer while others can sleep through after a cup of coffee without any effects. We often use coffee as a fuel to push ourselves through a sleepless night. Think of the times that we had to pull an all-nighter to get our work done, it may be an assignment or a project that needed to be meet with its deadline, we always trusted coffee for help.

Coffee is always associated as a stimulant that gives us energy. But that's not how it works. It blocks a receptor in our brain. A chemical called adenosine which signals the body that its tired and molecules in coffee mirrors the chemical and blocks the receptor from sending signal of tiredness. Hence coffee helps us feel less tired but not give us energy. It takes 15 to 20 minutes to get absorbed and 20 minutes is the recommended time for a power nap. Naps are amazing because it is proved to improve memory, boost's mood and creativity; and people who nap are shown to have longer life and less signs of aging.The effective way to boost up the body is to mix the power tools like coffee and nap together. Consuming a cup of coffee and immediately taking power nap for 20 minutes is highly recommended; by the time we wake up, the caffeine has kicked in and we are all set to conquer the rest of the day. It's a good way to hit the ground running as soon as we wake up. Instead of waking up grumpy and sleepy, we wake up caffeinated. This simple habit of coffee nap can transform the afternoon siesta. May the force of coffee nap be with us to get us through the sleepy times.

Time Travel Moving between different points in time—has been a popular topic for science fiction for decades. Franchises ranging from "Doctor Who" to "Star Trek" to "Back to the Future" have seen humans get in a vehicle of some sort and arrive in the past or future, ready to take on new adventures. Each comes with their own time travel theories. Is it possible to travel through time? To answer this question, we must be a bit more specific about what we mean by traveling through time. Discounting the everyday progression of time, the question can be divided into two parts: Is it possible, within a short time (less than a human life span), to travel into the distant future? And is it possible to travel into the past? Our current understanding of fundamental physics tells us that the answer to the first question is a definite yes, and to the second, maybe. "The mechanism for traveling into the distant future is to use the time-dilation effect of Special Relativity, which states that a moving clock appears to tick more slowly the closer it approaches the speed of light. This effect, which has been overwhelmingly supported by experimental tests, applies to all types of clocks, including biological aging.

Will the Law of Physics Ever Allow Food Teleportation be Possible?

Gone are those days where Uber Eats, Swiggy, Zomato and Food Panda deliver our favorite food stuff to our doorsteps. In the recent years, due to the rapid growth of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Automation; food delivery robots have already started to deliver foods. What will be the future revolution in food delivery system? Can you visualize a world where you prepare a drink or dish and then send the flavor to your friend or dear ones through internet? Imagine if we could taste food or beverages on the internet or in a virtual reality environment‌ We can now teletransport food! In this mode, instead of sending the food, we send its data using broadband connection. Dr. Nimesha Ranasinghe and his team of scientists at National University of Singapore have developed

a protocol for teleporting lemonade: digitally sharing the flavour experience of lemonade among remote individuals which is unbelievable. For teleporting of Lemonade, scientists created a sensor which captures key information about the lemonade, such as colour and flavour. The person who wants to send the drink virtually dips the sensor into the beverage to capture colour and pH values. Later, the sensor sends the information via. simulator to a person who takes a sip of water from customized tumbler. This customized electronic tumbler electrically stimulates and delivers controlled electrical pulses on the user's taste buds in order to replicate the sour taste and flavour as the original lemonade in the mouth. It is also fitted with RGB LED lights to simulate the colour of the lemonade. This fantastic innovation has proven no significant difference between the real and virtual lemonades with regards to perception of sourness when both the pre-taste and actual taste feedbacks are combined. Future experiments in this field could revolutionize the domain of digital platforms in food teleportation. Developing social food and beverage sharing platforms with multisensory experiences in future will enable cross-disciplinary, novel and innovative application possibilities in future.

Creative Corner Genuinely caring about somebody a lot, does not guarantee they care about you equally (or at all) in return. Some people will never care about you regardless of what you do or say. So, don't assume somebody appreciates you just because you do nice things for them. This is something that I unfortunately didn't learn, until well into adulthood—it may sound obvious when its spelled out, but when you're in the actual situation its not always so clear. Most of my life, I thought if I really cared about somebody a lot, then they must care about me to some degree in return. It always felt like that connection was so strong it had to be mutual, even if the obvious signs showed otherwise. Despite certain people treating me like dirt and rarely reciprocating, I would do everything I could to make them happy. I would go out of my way to help them, say & do nice things for them, encourage them, etc. With the assumption they'd eventually show their appreciation for me being in their lives. I'd think "how could they not care about me when I make it so obvious how much I care about them? What I've learned over the years is that a lot of times that reciprocal connection is imagined. The amount you love somebody does not always affect how much they love you back. People can and will use you and your emotions. And just because somebody may have once cared about you in the past, doesn't mean they still do now or ever will again in the future. There’s often nothing you can do to change their feelings through any good deeds or kind words. I’m not talking about classic "nice guy" syndrome. Not the crush who friend-zoned you that you're desperately trying to win over by being nice when there should have never been any expectation of feelings to begin with...I'm talking about people who you genuinely feel a meaningful connection with. Whether that be friends, family, or romantic partners. I wasted a lot of time on people expecting them to start reciprocating my feelings and actions. I'd be convinced I could win people over (or back over), including bad friends and former relationships...if I was just nice enough to them and let my feelings be known. Looking back, I should have cut my loses far sooner. I should have focused more on finding people who not only cared about me, but wanted to make me happy in return. I should note, I don't mean to say you should only do good things for people if you expect something in return. There is nothing wrong with being nice to people just because it makes you happy (even if they don't appreciate it). But you can't expect them to some day change their minds. And you shouldn't let your desire to please people who don't care about you distract you from finding people who do. Hope you learn from these mistakes and probably have better relationships in your life

Patience

While waiting for the Word file to open, my fingers involuntarily began tapping all around the touchpad. The more time the file took, the more restless I got and my frustration with the “lousy and old laptop” could directly be measured with the quickness of my tapping to the point when I loudly complained about the delay in a room with no other human being beside me. That’s when I realized how impatient I have become. The internet stops working for a few minutes and I start banging on the modem desperately to bring back the signal. Worried by this discovery, I dived deep into self-retrospection to distinguish incidences when I had been impatient and when not. As the list under the heading impatient continued to grow and overpower the other side of the line, I realized that yes indeed, over the years I have become impatient. Still, in order to save my conscience, I asked my mother what she thought about this discovery. Along with a clear answer to my question, she said, “Yes!” much to my disappointment. My mother went on to calmly state that impatience is a problem with not just me but my entire generation and in all the youth. I realized that no matter how much I wanted to disagree, what she said is true. As time is moving forward, so are we. And in such a fast-paced world, waiting patiently is something that we seem to have forgotten. At one point, I almost blamed this whole situation on the term ‘youth’, when one is young, dumb and broke. However, upon closer analysis I figured out at least one accused-technology. Modern technology has increased the bar of efficiency in an inconceivable manner and continues to do so. With just a tap or click, we have all the information that we need. When such precision is served on a plate in one field, one is expected to wish for the same in other spheres too. Apart from the tagline “everything at our fingertips”, speed is the main bait used by technology to lure us towards it. A recent advertisement launched by Apple features a girl being able to unlock her phone with just a look in a split second. Even advertisements for net banking and other such online facilities use “long waiting lines” as their main tagline. When an object or propaganda is all around us, one cannot be blamed to actually start being its audience involuntarily. Technology, in the form of mobile phones, laptops, tablets and so on, has no doubt encircled humans. With its reach to the far corners of the world, from laboratories in Antarctica to every office on Wall Street, it surely has been successful in at least grabbing our attention. But can our increasing impatience be called only technology’s fault? If not, then what other reasons are there? Is the age-old saying, ‘the older the wiser’ still true? Will the ‘youth’ grow out of this bad habit? Or do we in general need to decrease the expected patience level? If yes, then I believe that we have given too much to technology. Whatever the reason, this problem is the root cause of many other social as well as personal issues like road rage, damaged communication skills and so on. In the end, the question remains the same as it is for other technology related worries: ‘Where does one draw the line?’

Humanity is at its peak stages of destruction due lack of awareness about the way they are being the major cause for it. Climate change has been the major concern in the present world. As many are ignoring it and is being cause for it without their knowledge. Even the educated are not showing keen interest on it. As people of present generation we have to create a better world for the next generations. But this is not happening in the major cases. Using natural resources more than required, creating pollution by burning fossil fuels these are paving way to the destruction of the climatic conditions. Using water more than required, as we have seen so much of water being wasted on roads by public or private taps or water systems. By all these means of pollution the temperature has been increasing drastically every year, which in turn effecting the climate change. Melting of polar glaciers of Antarctica, increase in sea level, decrease in the ground water, increase in the temperature every summer etc. are some of the effects of the climate

change. If this is going to continue further, there is a chance of war between countries for water and natural resources. Earthquakes, tsunamis, cyclones, volcano eruptions are also due to this climate change and more usage of natural resources. By all these I would like tell that humanity can only survive if they are going to take major step about this. It is our primary job to save the nature, only then it will save us from massive destructions. Using more natural resources, recycling wastage, reducing pollution by using limited vehicles, creating awareness among people are some of the ways to stop climate change and save ourselves from the extinction. Not only animals even human have to accept their fate of extinction if they continue the same scenario further.

Beaches in Chennai Glow Blue? In the midst of chrysanthemums, On the other side of blue, Found I you, Waiting like a puddle, After summer rain, Tears. I had followed the limping child, Thin through not enough, In the tall grass, Half a day walking, Clutching curiosity, Years. You were sitting wrapped in desperation, Unwashed yet cleansed, Hungry yet full, A blind cobra, Empty of dignity, Fears. People passed you by in their oblivion, I looked and saw your flame, Almost extinguished, Barely flickering, Took your hand, In mine. How could I pass you by? How could I............??

Yes, you heard it true. People near beaches in Chennai saw blue glow from the ocean which truly amazed them and it went on YouTube video. These glowing patches were witnessed in Thiruvanmiyur, Injambakkam and Palavakkam beaches. I saw this video in the morning the other day. The night of the same day I was at a beach somewhere near Mahabalipuram and I witnessed these blue glows that comes up from the ocean

along with the wave. Later I found out that the glow comes from bioluminescence algae which are emissions, known as phytoplanktons (microscopic marine plants), that marine creatures produce. They are a part of the dinoflagellates species and the one causing all the chatter in Chennai is the Noctiluca scintillans bioluminescence algae. These organisms are known to be voracious predators that lead to the disruption of the marine food chain. They excrete large amounts of ammonia that cause fish mortality. These algae patches can be linked to coastal pollution and runoff from agricultural areas. People in Chennai took to Twitter to share pictures of the bioluminescence and the hashtag #ChennaiSeaSparkle. It was peculiar, yet beautiful sight to be seen!

REFINING OUR MORAL COMPASS – FAITH & BELIEFS

A man can be defined with just three instances of his life – the time of birth, existence and death. By time, I don’t literally mean “time”, of course. I’m mostly concerned about the people he is born into, the life he chooses to live, the mark he leaves behind, post death. Out of these stages of life, people seem to put so much thought into controlling the way they live and the transcendent place they reach after death (most people at least) but we completely forget about the fact that our Birth, which brings us into existence, is absolutely beyond our control. Or more specifically, the beliefs we are born into. I was named Rahul Jacob because my dad was a fan of Rahul Dravid and Jacob was my family name. I’m not a fan of my name but nor do I hate it entirely. But luckily for me, I guess my name has been the only thing that I never could have chosen. Unlike most other children, I was fortunate enough to have parents who never forced into any particular religion or beliefs or faith. As far as familial background goes, my father was born into a Christian family in Bangalore, spent his adolescence in Agra and moved to Chennai when he was 20, after which he met my mom and married her. My mother, on the other hand, was born into a Hindu family in Chennai with her maternal side being Christian. So naturally when my parents got married, religion was never an influencing factor. My elder sister and I chose to be the people we wanted to be – the values we upheld, the beliefs we put our faith in and the moral code we followed. There is this one lesson that my dad taught me when I was a kid which I will never forget. I must have been around 10 when I found my cousin praying out loud in the Pooja room asking for good marks in her exams. I was young and stupid and made fun of her for doing so; because back then I thought it was cool to tell my friends that I was an atheist, in fact, not a lot of 10-year-old knew what “atheist” meant. It was then that my father who taught me how wrong it is to make fun of someone else’s beliefs, especially when it concerns their religion. Don’t get me wrong, I haven’t figured it all out either, actually not even close when it comes to finding my faith in a Greater Being. But I have grown into a person who respects others’ beliefs and never have I forced my beliefs or lack thereof, onto someone else. Back then I wasn’t aware that there was a term for the people who were skeptical about the existence of God. As it turned out, I wasn’t actually an atheist, they called people like me who were trying to find faith as “Agnostic”. Honestly, it sounded like tomato-tomato to me. My younger self was convinced that finding and putting faith in a Greater Being will solve all my problems. So, in 5th grade, when asked to choose between scriptures or ethics classes, I chose scriptures, in hope that I would find faith through the stories of the Bible. But guess what; even my 10-year-old self, found those stories to be a little too fictious to be true, because honestly, the story of the Big Bang Theory made more sense than that of Adam and Eve. That was also right around the time when Krishna: Makhan Chor was playing on Pogo. As amusing as I had found the show and Lord Krishna to be, I never could picture him as a Godly figure. You know what the worst part of it all was – when hit by hard times you have utterly no idea whom to blame. When other kids cursed at God for taking away their pet dogs, I had to tell myself, “that’s just how it is”. Right now, at 21, I’ve come to understand that “that’s just how it is” isn’t so bad after all. I’ve come to realize that you don’t need to believe God to indulge yourself to be kind or to not push a guy down a flight of stairs because you felt it would be funny. Isn’t that why people put their faith in God? Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. Isn’t that what Christians literally pray for? What if one has developed a moral compass built upon his conscience to let him judge what is right and what is wrong and makes him act accordingly. Others take to God as a support system when in need of emotional support. Well, I believe that a friend or two, honest and non-judgmental, can be all the support-system one might ever need. Look around us, there are meth-heads and pedophiles who go to church, terrorists who kill thousands in the name of God, schools being burned down even though there’s a Goddess for wisdom and knowledge. At the end of the day, it must be our beliefs that must be questioned rather than our faith. So rather than tuning our beliefs based on our faith, we must tune our faith based on our beliefs. The result might seem oddly familiar – it’s our conscience fabricating a moral compass.

How Could We Create a Second Earth?

As we blow through the resources on Earth, it’s clear we’re going to need a new planet soon. Is it possible we could make one through terraforming? And a possible place where this could happen is Mars. Well, Mars’ atmosphere is really thin; and its carbon dioxide, so toxic to humans. Mars is also further from the Sun and that coupled with its thin atmosphere means it’s about -63 degrees Celsius. So, sorry folks, your winter coats won’t quite cut it. We’d have to make atmosphere thicker and change its

composition. One way to do this would be to trigger a greenhouse effect, making it so any heat from the Sun is trapped, heating the planet all over. We could do this a bunch of different ways, like using methane mined from the rocks on Mars, carbon dioxide—if we could get enough of it, or even with ammonia! But wait! Remember the whole “Mars has no magnetosphere” thing? Mars’ global magnetic field got shut down around 4.2 billion years ago, and from there the solar wind and powerful sun explosions stripped away most the atmosphere, sending it off into space. And that’s not good, as there isn’t a trove of carbon dioxide in the Mars rocks to release in order to trigger a greenhouse effect. And also, any atmosphere we add to Mars won’t last. Eventually, it’ll be stripped away by radiation and solar wind, too. So, Mars is out of the question. Instead, let’s check our other nearest neighbour: Venus who has a super-thick atmosphere and temperature around 460 degrees Celsius; so, we’d have to change a lot of that, too. One option is to bombard Venus with hydrogen from gas giants, creating graphite and water that would turn into global oceans. These would dissolve produced nitrogen and lower the atmospheric pressure to something more Earth-like. We could also terraform parts of Mercury. There’s water and organic molecules in the northern polar region, so heating the bottoms of big craters with mirrors could melt the ice. And adding a dome on top could create a little life-bubble on a hostile planet. The same thing could be done on the Moon, too. Hopefully that life-bubble has Wi-Fi. We could maybe terraform Europa … well, sort of. If we could melt the surface ice, some of the released oxygen could populate the atmosphere and we could have a water world on our hands. And it’s even possible to terraform Titan, too, but we’d also have to create oxygen and make the moon less toxic to humans. But all this is really hard and really far off in the future. While I’d love to call another place in this universe my home, we should probably just protect the Earth we have now. What do you think? Should we be terraforming other planets?

The myriad colours of art are ambiguous — Sometimes calming, and Sometimes firing. Yet, way too hard to part when you paint. Courtesy: Vero

Any Body Can Do Eco Fashion

I strongly believe that everything of our past is going to come back as a future. What made me to say so? Let me explain. Talking general, the motorcycle ROYAL ENFIELD was an old fashion in automobile industry during second WORLD WAR; but now it became trend in current generation. Floral print design which was trending in 1940’s became trend again in present fashion. People

around the world look back of our history and culture to bring its essence as our forthcoming. The same sense is applicable to current Fashion Industry. Evolution in Fashion takes place tremendously since ages and now the concept of ECO came into existence. We heard the word ECO in many sectors and now we also hear this in Fashion Industry too. ECO FASHION is the sound which gets multiple in all commercial sectors and people adopting the flavor of it. Let’s get back to our roots of fashion where we began our journey of evolution in Fashion. The concept of ECO FASHION was initially influenced by the early tribes who used ECO friendly material as their ornaments and embellishment on their attires. Slowly it evolved into Fashion industrial experiment where people started adopting the change and got the so-called SUSTAINABLE ECO-FRIENDLY FASHION into existence. Fashion is not something that only designers can do. Who has the sense of fashion with added flavor of sustainable thoughts can create unique attire which can lead the fashion industry towards the Sustainable Eco Fashion world—which in turn results in economical profits as well as establishing a healthy environment. Hence, A B C D E F - Any Body Can Do Eco Fashion. Mr. Obulam Vidya Sagar Assistant Professor, FDA. We are going to have a FRIENDLY FASHION FUTURE …..STAY TUNED!

COVID – 19: SOCIAL IMPACT

In mid-January 2020, I was on a 4-day pleasure trip, a cruise from Singapore to Penang and back – an enjoyable trip on board a cruise ship where we were totally shut off from news from the outside. As we got off the ship at Singapore by the third week of January 2020, we began to hear about the Corona Virus spreading across China. Before we realised anything, the next thing it had spread to Iran, S.Korea, Malaysia, moving on to Europe and the Americas. Since then it has spread to India, Russia, Brazil and many other countries. Very soon the whole world was engulfed with this little-known disease, later christened by WHO as Covid – 19. The last time a similar disaster struck the human race was about 100 years ago. No country was prepared to deal with such a pandemic in this day and age. Humanity is now forced to battle this unknown, invisible and unexplained virus; and this is what makes the disease risky which makes no distinction between nations, religions, beliefs, languages, geographical and political boundaries. Human race has been made to realise that forces of nature are more

powerful than their aspirations and actions. While political leaders scramble to protect themselves and their countries, religious leaders pray for divine intervention. Industry has ground to a halt, agricultural activities have been suspended, services sector is not a priority. When these economic activities come to a halt, what is forecast is days of scarcity and insufficiency in food and economic goods and services. What does the Future Hold in Store? Social and religious leaders have offered various explanations and words of consolation. Pope Francis tries to explain this pandemonium as result of conflict between man and nature. So, the solution lies in man learning to live with nature. Some historians and philosophers like Mr. Yuval Noah Harari, feel that it is the result of wrong policies of political leaders. Self-centred Policies like “America First”, suppression of minority rights across the world, fight for economic and military supremacy between the super powers, lack of cooperation among countries are the root cause for spread of the virus. What can bring about mitigation of the problem on a permanent basis is cooperation–between countries, religions, states, and cultures. Knowledge and experience about the disease must be shared, costs must be shared with weaker economies, expertise and equipment like test kits, masks, ventilators and medicines must be shared. No country can claim that they are completely out of the crisis; such a narrow outlook will only result in resurgence of the disease. The post pandemic world may be different from what it is today. What lies ahead is a long way forward: to solve the health crisis, lay the foundation for the new world order, increase cooperation among countries and instil democratic values. World is one large country consisting of diverse communities and all have a right to enjoy what the world has to offer.
