Mr. Krishna Pokhrel, a guy who joined our college directly
from Nepal, had a zeal and a spark within. He had spent his
to be a successful electronics engineer, though he had zero
knowledge of the field. Through MEA quota he found a way
here in NIT Kurukshetra to live his dreams.
Once chatting with one of his friends in IIT, he came to know
of their initiative of forming a Digital Club which made robots
emplying 8051 M controller. He was totally clueless what he was
talking about. Though he had no idea of M Controller, still against
the odds, he started collecting information regarding it.
He rushed to library, flipped 1000’s web pages and gathered
knowledge from each and every source possible. With a desire to
see it once and use it practically.
This boy in his first semester itself was
busy in weekends toiling this foreign land
in search of Micro-Controllers. His search
operation ended no where closer than the
Lajpat Market, New Delhi.
Taking his expedition a bit further, he joined
EM-tech foundation, Janakpuri as a summer
trainee after 2nd year for a 1.5 month course.
Working for 4 hours a day he found it quite
easy and felt like he can himself teach it.
This was the time when he and Ashish
Aggarwal decided with firm conviction to
start a club for our college and teach students
free of cost, as they found us lagging behind
in this particular field.
Though his intentions were nobel, the era of
struggle for him started.
Rushing here and there for 6 months, he got
a big NO.
Applications got rejected and they tried to
“we already have so many socities, why a
At last seeing his sincere efforts he was
rewarded with a chance to prove his worth
within 6 months.
5th semester ended and he then had his
second training in Networking (CCNA),
Gurgaon. In LITERATI 2010, he conducted
a 15 days workshop on Robotics. Along
with Ashish Aggarwal, he lead a 35 strong
team of pre-final year students and started
teaching the firsties, even though he wasn’t
comfortable in speaking Hindi.
He got nothing more than a pat on the back
by the organizers. As a result,
his team started shattering with these
unfruitful exercises of the club yet he saw
another dream!!! He planned footballer
robots for ‘Wild Soccer’ event in the
technical fest of IIT Kanpur which was to
be held on 20th February, 2010. Reaching
quarter final if not admirable, is also not
workshop was conducted on Computer
aided Robots.End of this 6th semester was
the end of the allotted 6 months deadline.
Finally, on the onset of 7th semester their
work impressed Prof. V K Arora who signed
their club official.
Mr. Krishna now assures that his club will
be teaching students to upgrade the level of
the college with no personal interests.

NEEV is a search for a new vision of living- born out of the
dissatisfaction with the dominant world views of capitalism
and materialism. We dream and strive for a world in which
unconditional respect and dignity for all people and nature
is the ultimate aim of development. We believe there is no
one way of achieving this. NEEV expresses its solidarity with
all movements which seek to uphold the values of, justice,
equality, liberty, fraternity and sensitivity to mother earth in
forming the societies of the future.
-says Mr. Anurag Jain
EEV (New Education and
Environment Visions), a
proud venture of 2 great
engineers who passed out years
ago from the premises of our
own NIT kurukshetra, is now a
social enterprise, with a vision
to improve the present status of society,
empower individuals, serve the humanity
and sustain earth through education,
environment initiatives and social
entrepreneurship. It works in the slums and
villages of Jamshedpur, Jharkhand.
When passing out they had a zeal not to follow
the conventional trail of jobs or MBA’s but
to search a way of life that was meaningful,
sane and one that leads to inner richness. But
against the will, for a brief time they had to
be engaged in the corporate sector and then
very soon left it to find a spiritually more
meaningful way of life…. As a result of
which NEEV came into being.!!!!
NEEV visualises to make our lifestyle more
environmental conscious and thrives to
improve the present status of society. They
found Pollution and education as the targets
to hamper on….Starting their mission with
neev public school, with a vision of providing
good quality English Medium Education
at an affordable cost to the underprivileged
a harmony between man and nature. Now
they also have a handicraft unit, promoting
the latent creativity and entrepreneurial spirit
of women, mahua oil extraction cell and a
private firm ‘Environment tech’, registered
to their credit.
To acknowledge their achievements and
noble initiatives, they have been recognised
on both state and national levels. To name a
few the duo were awarded with-
1.Bharat Excellence Award -2011
2.National Award-Best REGP Unit -2010
3.JharkhandYuva Chetna Samman -2009
And the award which Anurag considers
priceless is the vote of thanks by women
by NEEV initiatives. For the beneficiaries
Meenu, their production manager now, spoke
a few lines regarding the Jains and NEEV.
NEEV ne mere parivar ko khushhali
to di hai , meri Jhopdi ki jagah ghar
khada karwa diya hai. Mere jaise
1000 mahilao ko zindagi ka maksad
aur rozgar mila hai. Ab humara
parivar khush hai aur hume bahut
khushi hai. Mere bache ab padte
hai. Mai sir aur madam ko bahut
bahut dhanyawaad dena chaungii
aur ye humare zindagi mai bhagwan
ke roop mai aaye hai..
This is what Mr. Anurag Jain advised all the NITians when we interviewed him. The rest
of the interview goes like this -
(1) Sir, recollecting your memories, how
you felt after joining the college here at
College was a dream come true for me. For
the first time in years I got the opportunity
to experience myself as an individual and an
opportunity to form my own thoughts. The
experience of ragging was horrible for me. In
fact it shook me up so deeply that I moved
into spirituality to find answers to many
questions related to life that came in me.
But, it was college that gave me the space
and time to find who I truly am. The college
campus was truly amazing with nature all
around. We used to simply love walking to
Brahma Sarovar and the fields adjoining the
colleges at our time. I was sad to see that all
these fields have gone now.
I love my college campus to this day and I
feel there is some kind of spiritual energy in
that place...... at least I could feel it when I was
We have got one life, and it is precious. Do not fritter it
away in parties and drinks and friends. We must make our
life count and live our dreams.
(2) How great was your life here with friends, and
life at hostels?
Hostel life, again was great fun. For the first time, we
got an opportunity to interact with so many friends
from so many states. I made many friends in college
and almost all of them remain friends till today. I
remember spending many hours with my friends
in their rooms sharing my emotional life as well as
my thoughts. Initially because of ragging we were
forced to stay with other students from Bihar only.
But from the end of second year onwards, I started
to find my own friends who could understand and
relate to me, my thoughts and emotions. The friends
I formed later on were from across the states and
I think that is the beauty of an institution like REC
Kurukshetra. I must say that the bonds we form in
college are some of the greatest bonds we form in
life. We rarely get such friends later on in life.
(3) College activities and academics are an
integral part of one’s life. How were yours?
T h e I N S I G H T
-says Mr. Anurag
It is difficult to make name, but it is more difficult to retain it. -Zarathustra
I participated a lot in group discussions and paper
presentation seminars. It was an exciting experience
for me and I really did well in these fields.This is where
I built up my confidence to become a public speaker,
something which I use up to this day. This was the
greatest gift, college gave me.
In classes, most of the time I spent reading books on
philosophy. I got caught a few times too but then
despite all this both Shikha and I graduated with a
distinction in Civil Engineering… Among the profs I
had a few favourites. I really liked Prof. Phillip's classes.
I liked Mrs. Manjula's and Mr. K.B Singh's classes too.
(4) Did you have a clear vision of your life ahead,
your career and all?
This perhaps is the most crucial question. We did not
feel ourselves inclined to do MBA and get careers
as the society and our parents were expecting us
to do. We felt very uncertain about our futures.
Despite being toppers we did not even give our
bio-datas for campus interviews. We decided to
pursue Philosophy abroad and did a lot of research
to explore this possibility but we could not get any
breakthrough. Everything required a lot of money. So
we finally decided to give our bio-datas for campus
interview at the last moment. Prof. Hotu, the Campus
Recruitment officer at our time almost refused to take
our bio-datas. We stayed out of his office for an hour
and even shed tears before he decided to take our
Bio-datas for interview. L&T (Larsen & Toubro) was
the first company that came to our campus for Civil
Engineering and I decided that I would do anything
and everything to get a job in this company. I worked
hard and by God's grace, I got the job - The only one
from my batch in Civil Engineering to get a job in L&T.
(5) You and Shikha ma’am had a love marriage,
was it a love a first sight?
Shikha and I were in Civil Engineering. We both were
batch mates and from the second year. No, it wasn't
love at first sight. Shikha was quite popular among all
the boys of the hostel. In our times there were very
few girls and so we guys had to vie for their attention.
But, I did not actually try to make any friendship with
her. We got to know each other more closely during
the summer camp in which Civil Engineering students
go to at Dehradun for their survey project. It was an
amazing place, a beautiful locale for both of us to get
to know each other. After Dehradun trip we became
good friends and by the beginning of third year we
had decided to be life partners.
(6) From your entire college life which was the
most memorable event/day in your life?
Undoubtedly the most memorable event in my life
was the day Shikha accepted my feelings for her, late
one evening on the steps of Brahma Sarovar. The
second was when I proposed to her in front of Birla
Temple, in BITS Pilani, under a starry night to become
my life partner.
(7) How did u get inspiration for NEEV, did come in
your college days?
It did not happen suddenly. It was something that was
built up over the years after having a lot of experiences
and seeing different sections of society. NEEV was
designed as a laboratory to answer all the questions
that were raging in my mind about the world. It was
also supposed to be a way out of all the c competitive
and acquisitive society that we are living in.We wanted
to develop NEEV as an alternative model of existence
on earth......one which respected People, Planet and
(8) Sir, why did you leave the corporate sector and
choose to serve the humanity?
I left it because of a growing spiritual crisis in me. I
was not finding any meaning in the work I was doing.
I wanted to find the purpose of life. I wanted to find
my true self. All this requires a lot of time and a lot of
practice, away from the busy schedules of a corporate
Choosing to serve people came more from the desire
to help them see Truth in life than doing charity. For
some years, in NEEV, we did believe that we can help
people through charity and by changing systems but
then we soon realized that the world does not run
according to our desires. We cannot change events in
a permanent way.The only permanent change, if it has
to happen, happens in the minds of people. Slowly we
started focusing more on doing a few things rather
than doing a lot of things. Right now we focus only on
our Soaps Unit as a model of a green enterprise and on
our School, a place where we can give true knowledge
(9) What was your first step to start building up
We tried building NEEV three times with three
different groups. Co-incidentally, the first group
was our college friends. But all these times we failed
because the people could not find the energy to
commit themselves to this cause wholeheartedly.
Ultimately, Shikha suggested me that I should start
out alone. In 2006, I registered NEEV as a non-profit
Trust with myself, Shikha and my parents as Trustees.
After, we started NEEV, I started writing to my friends
for funds, and I am happy to say that many of them
responded. Over the years we have got a lot of support
from REC Kurukshetra students and I have got help
from students whom I never knew. Imagine, I got help
from 1975 REC batch as well as from 2010 REC batch.
(10) Though there might be many, what were the
major challenges you faced and how did u tackle
The greatest challenge we faced was to make NEEV
sustainable financially, which means we have to be on
a continuous hunt for funds to support our programs
and activities. The second greatest challenge is to
maintain the morale of the team to continue working
in very tough circumstances.
We tackled this by a multi-pronged approach. The
internet came handy. I realized very early that if we
have to run NEEV sustainability we have to form a
support group that runs across the world.Through the
internet we started publishing e- newsletters of all the
work we were doing.
Secondly we came out with the idea of a social
enterprise, NEEV Herbal Handmade Soaps. We
thought that instead of purely relying on funds we
start an enterprise to generate revenues internally.
Thirdly, we started approaching institutional funding
agencies with project proposals. At present we have
done a number of projects with NABARD and other
(11) Which was the first achievement when you
felt, AAH!! i have done something?
Civil engineering graduates of the batch
1993-97, Anurag Jain, born and brought
up in Jamshedpur and Shikha Jain from
Faridabad are the two big guns behind
this splendid achievement, who met each
other in college and the pull of a common
destiny made them tie the marriage knot.
Honestly, I never got this feeling. My aim has always
been to find truth and I am quite aware that I have not
arrived at that.
(12) How’s your life now? Are your parents happy
with your initiatives?
Initially, my parents were at a loss to understand what
we were up to. But today they are proud of us and our
work. Not only that, they help us out in our activities.
Both, my mother and father go to teach for one day a
week in NEEV Public School and my father volunteers
to maintain all accounts of NEEV.
I’m a totally satisfied man, atleast happy within that I’ve
tried to help my mother nation and not added to its
problems. But my life is in a transition now. I feel I have
done enough of leading an organization. I also have
received answers to lot of my questions. The NEEV
organizations have teams now which can take care of
their daily operations. I would now like to give more
time to self-introspection and writing. I am also going
to move on to consultancy, research and training in
the areas of education, sustainable development and
the grassroots level of all the topics I have mentioned. I
think I can help others with my experience now.
Other than this, I shall be actively involved in raising
funds for NEEV and representing NEEV in various
(13) All nitians are reading your success and might
be highly influenced.What would you like to advise
College is perhaps the best place to develop your
intellect. It also gives you the greatest amount of time,
where you don’t have to bother about earning your
living. My advice is that the students should spend a lot
of time in the library, reading newspapers, magazines
and books. College also provides you an opportunity
to hone your leadership skills so students should utilize
the extra-curricular events to the fullest. What matters
more than degrees after you get your first job are your
innate skills, knowledge and attitudes.
(14) Time killing is the greatest challenge NITians
face here. How should they manage their carrier
and time being in college?
I know, what I am saying is pretty difficult but if you
could do this, it would be terrific. Develop a schedule
for your life in college. Don’t allow it to drift in a drain.
Develop a schedule for study, reading and extra-
curricular activities. Friends are not your ultimate aim.
True friends are not those who host parties and drinks
for you but those who add value in your life through
knowledge and dialogues. It also helps if you are able
to find out the right career options for yourself. For
instance marketing requires very different set of skills
than from research. You must to some degree map out
your personality profile.
(15) How should we proceed to convert our dreams
There is only one way for that...."Never....ever give up".
Also, the closer dreams are to your true self and reality
(rather than fantasy) the greater are the chances of
realizing them. Also dreams are not converted to reality
in ways which you thought. If you have faith in the
intelligence of the universe, it makes this conversion
happen but for that you have to become it's student
and learn to read the clues it sends you.
It's an amazing initiative, trying to direct the young
lads in a better way.
Everyone does a lot for himself, but doing something
noble for others is really wonderful and worth saluting.
When you do something out of your own imagination,
the greatest learning happens. My only advice is that
every venture requires a leader and a team who is
ready to follow the leader in a wholesome spirit.
T h e I N S I G H T

Kisan Bapat Baburao Hazare popularly known as

center of the standoff between India’s government
and civil society over the terms of an anti-corruption
law "Jan Lokpal". He who once contemplated suicide
and even wrote a two page essay on why he wanted to
end his life draws inspiration from a leading light of
India’s spiritual renaissance in the late 19th century,

New Delhi Railway Station, he chanced upon a book
on Swami Vivekananda. Drawn by Vivekananda's
photograph, he is quoted as saying that he read the
book and found his answer-that the motive of his life
lay in service to his fellow humans. For Anna Hazare,
fight against corruption is just another battle as he
has fought many, including some as a soldier for 15
years in Indian Army. Anna who walk's on Gandhian

after a six-month struggle. It was only a matter of time when would the tides of revolution
reach Libya , it was only matter of time when would this country in between Tunisia and
Egypt to recover from the virus that has been ruling it for 40 years. It all started when cops
brutally killed Khaled Saeed under disputed circumstances. Post mortem imagery of
Khaled Saeed's corpse in the morgue went viral, becoming "The Face That Launched a

fallen regime finally wrested control of his hometown.
2G Spectrum Case rocked the
country bringing turmoil in political
and bureaucratic circles. 2G licenses
were issued to private telecom players
at throwaway prices in 2008. Rules and
procedures were flouted while issuing
licenses, which cost the government `
1.76 lakh crore (or try 1,76,000,00,00,000). Major culprits behind
the scam were telecom minister A. Raja and DMK MP Kanimozhi.
The telephonic conversations between Nira Radia, a political
lobbyist and an acquaintance of the (then) Telecom minister A. Raja,
and with some senior journalists, politicians, and corporate houses,
were taped by the Indian Income Tax Department in 2008-09, which
brought the scam in light.

4.The Sixth Sense:
The SixthSense prototype comprises

in a pendant
the projector and the camera are connected
to a mobile computing device in the
user’s pocket. The projector projects visual
information enabling surfaces, walls and
physical objects around us to be used as
interfaces; while the camera recognizes and
tracks user's hand gestures and physical
objects using computer-vision based
techniques. The software program processes
the video stream data captured by the camera
and tracks the locations of the colored
markers (visual tracking fiducials) at the
tips of the user’s fingers. The movements
and arrangements of these fiducials are
interpreted into gesturetures that act as
interaction instructions for the projected
application interfaces. SixthSense supports
multi-touch and multi-user interaction. So

The INSIGHT: Pranav Mistry and his innovations
are making wonders. As a sister how you feel about
Miss Mistry: Am glad that there are so many
fans of Pranav...Am also proud of my bother that
he is an inspiration to many students. I guess sixth
sense has made him more popular. Actually Pranav
deserves even more than this. While working, he
never looks at watch he used to work whole night
some times and now also we never know he will be
awake or sleeping!!!
The INSIGHT: Ma’am how was his childhood, his
Miss Mistry : He was a bright student from the
beginning, he always used to be the 1st in all the
activities and was good at everything I must say.
The INSIGHT: We came to know that he was
district champion inTableTennis, did he take interest
in extra-curricular activities?
Miss Mistry: Ya, a lot I mean. He sings well, is a
good actor, he used to direct and perform in dramas,
his drawing was nice; along with TT he was good at
The INSIGHT: How was his graduation and
Miss Mistry: He stood 1st in entrance exam of
CEPT (well known or one of the best architectural
college) but he was sure what he wanted to do and
went to Nirma University at Ahmedabad to pursue
his Computer Engineering there and did his masters
from IIT. He used to take part in various competitions
online like........graphic poster competition of
Sigraph tech festivals. He had won some title in IIT
competition while he was in Nirma and the list is too
The INSIGHT: Can you recollect any remarkable
work, he did during his college days?
Miss Mistry: He went to Microsoft for his project
of IIT. CEO of Microsoft at that time was impressed by
his work, had invited him to work there. He worked
for Microsoft for an year. Apart from these he had
many inventions and successful projects to his credit
while still being in college.
The INSIGHT: How did he manage to achieve
such great feats at such a young age?
Miss Mistry: He gives his credit to mom, dad,
some teachers and sometimes us 2 sisters, who
have always guided him, and showed him the path
to excel. He always took advice for each step, he
stepped out. Although he never went to any classes
or coaching for all these. After taking admission in
Nirma institute Pranav did all the procedures till now
himself...that includes going to IIT and Microsoft and
The INSIGHT: Your family bonding seems great.
How was your family environment in which you
grew up and such a maestro could shape his career?
Miss Mistry: My dad is an architect. We were
brought up in very free environment. We were given
the latest equipments. We had a good collection of
books at home. Even in studies we were never forced
to take some particular stream or field. My dad used
to provide us all the things we wanted for art work
and mom used to guide us in study. We were never
asked to study hard.
The INSIGHT: Did he have an aim in his life since
Miss Mistry: At different times, it was different.
Once we went to a small village when he was small
and there because we were guests all the people
used to give lots of free staff like fruits and vegetables
etc. So he said I want to be a farmer because you get
The INSIGHT: Can you recollect any remarkable
habit, personality trait of Pranav which you think was
Miss Mistry: Pranav was never shy to talk to
anybody no matter he knew the person or his
He likes to travel by public transports ...the reason
which he gives is that I get to know more people and
their behaviours and their lifestyles and it helps him
design products for them.
The INSIGHT: What were his ideologies, his
strategies, his life plan, as successful people generally
Miss Mistry: As such no rules. He does whatever
he likes and never cares for his looks or what others
will say. If he had rules, he never released them…
The INSIGHT: Whom he thinks as his ideals in life,
who inspires him?
Miss Mistry: Both my mother and father. No
doubt that our school and parents played major role.
And among the personalities, Leonardo I guess and
he used to like Hitler also he used to read Chankya
Niti, so I guess, Kautilya is also on his list.
The INSIGHT: What about and his friends and
girlfriends in particular?
Miss Mistry: He has many friends; he is in touch
with his old friends, even today.
About his girlfriends ....I am sorry but I cannot say
anything without his permission!!!
The INSIGHT: Was he mischievous, witty in his
Miss Mistry: We still fight a lot specially myself
and him. We used to play together also. Hey, did you
see his speech at youth summit? He was asked if he
was going to show a live demo of sixth sense!! Saurav
Ganguly and Katrina were also going to speak at
that event so Pranav replied...Is Saurav going to play
cricket on stage? Is Katrina going to dance?
The INSIGHT: Ma’am have you seen the sixth
sense device? Have you experienced it?
Miss Mistry: No, not till now. But, will soon want
to see what my brother has actually invented, which
the world calls as wonder.
The INSIGHT: Thanks ma’am it was really nice
talking to you and knowing about Pranav Sir in
greater depth. What would you like to advise us and
Miss Mistry: I wish you all the best. Work hard
and do what you like….All of you work hard and
chase your dreams…. Just like Pranav you all also
bring glory to our nation, and your family which
takes a lot of pain for you.
Thanks, thanks a lot.

n this article, I am writing about DAAD
WISE (Working Internship in Science and
Engineering) program. WISE is a 2-3 month
summer internship program for students in
their pre-final years who would like to work
on a research project at a German university
or a public research centre. DAAD provides
a monthly stipend of EUR 650 towards living
expenses, EUR 525 lump sum towards travel
and compulsory health insurance to those who
are selected for WISE.
Every year around 20 students are selected
from IIT Madras and 20 from NIT Warangal
and NIT Trichy and from our college it’s
always less than 3. From my perspective, it’s
not the case that students in our college are not
ingenious enough to get through it; it’s just the
lack of awareness and infallible senior-junior
interaction in our college.
The WISE application process starts early, so
it would be advisable to keep your resumes
ready by the mid of August. First of all, you
need to find a professor in Germany who would
be willing to accept you for a suitable project.
For that, you’ll have to start writing mail to
professors in German universities. Make it
specific to a single Professor, don’t ever spam.
Spamming the inbox of professors with 'I
want to do summer research' doesn't serve any
purpose (the response is most likely to be 'I
am not interested in you'). Write compelling,
personalized and relevant emails that convey
your goals and intentions to specific professors
whose work interests you. It shows when you
have taken the effort to look through their
website and read about the projects that they
work on. Asking a few people to review and
proof-read your e-mail might not be a bad
Once you have got an invitation letter from
German professor, half the job is done. Rest of
the process is easy as you need to procure all
the documents, fill up the online DAAD form
and send all the documents to DAAD office
in New Delhi before deadline (usually its 1st
Nov). Applicant must have a valid Passport
at the time of application. The result of the
scholarship comes quite late in the middle of
February. Since DAAD has stringent CGPA
criteria as far as I have analyzed, I would advise
you to try and maintain your CG score above
9.0. Projects done might give you an edge over
other applicants. Believe me it will be your once
in lifetime experience if you get through it!

My personal Experience:
I’m Pranav Chachra and I am pursuing my
final year in Electrical engineering. I went to
Heidelberg University during summer 2011
and worked with Prof. Joerg Oechssler and
his research team on a company collaborative
project broadly concerned with Game theory.
Landing at an odd time of 2 am had given me
some initial jitters. But the helping attitude of
the people at airport was very ensuring.
My stay at my apartment was a memorable
one! It had convivial atmosphere and I had
struck an instant friendship with my apartment
mates. We bonded well and discussed a lot
about our respective cultures. They in fact
invited me to parties, river side outings with
their friends, each of which contributed to
my insight into German culture and was an
enriching experience. I even got hooked to a
couple of German tv soaps and my apartment
mate willing to translate for me at every
possible instance will be reminiscence close to
Alright a Candid confession from my side ;)
Boiling maggi was the closest I had ever got to
cooking in India:P Experimenting with food
with family to learn cooking and eventually
realizing my cooking potential in those two
months and believe me my apartment mates
were in awe with the Indian delicacies I had
prepared for them.
As far as my research work was concerned,
it was an opportunity to learn a lot about
the subject I was already deeply interested
in. All the resources, opportunities, practical
exposure and freedom in work at my Lab
were commendable and further substantiated
my impression about the quality of Research
in Germany. In the end I am happy that my
project resulted into productive work. Very
recently, I was able to author an International
conference paper that I had written during my
stint at Heidelberg University.
Be it work, culture or people everything was
so majestic, that after 2 months I fell in love
with the place and I came back with a promise
to Deutschland “Ich werde wieder kommen!”
(I’ll come again!)
Why RESEARCH ??
As an engineering undergraduate, I always
wished to explore new fields and to interact
with researchers and scientists. Research was
what I wanted to pursue. There was no one to
guide me initially, being one of the very few
undergraduate students interested in research
in our college. In such a situation what matters
is whether one is willing to explore and forge
new opportunities for oneself.
There are few programs for undergraduate
science and engineering research that I came
across during my stint at college. I was able to
get through some of these elusive programs in
my second and pre-final year which included
IAS fellowship (now known as Science
Academies fellowship), TIFR VSRP program
and DAAD WISE and was really fortunate
enough to work with leading researchers in
their fields at research institutions in India
including IISc Bangalore, TIFR Mumbai and
Such opportunities give one a taste of what
a career in science might be like. If you are
interested in going to graduate school, these
experiences will surely give you an edge over
other applicants. But, it takes a lot of effort
and a real interest in the work to land into one
elusive undergraduate research internship.
Often, you might have to apply to many places
before you get an acceptance. Serious and
rigorous effort is required for it.

foreign intern :
When I was in school, I was told by many of my teachers that these
school years were the building foundation for rest of my life, today I
tell you that decisions you make and the actions you take during this
first year of college will have a major impact on rest of your college
Study, but not only for the sake of getting marks, study for the knowledge
because that’s what is going to be alongside you for the rest of your life.
Trust me, while studying your boring course material also, you can have
some questions rising and some interests developing; be always ready to
pursue these little rays of hope. Be curious, ask yourself questions and
then study to fulfill your quest for this knowledge. A great man once
said- “I respect faith, but doubt is what gets you education.” Have fun
along the way, because ‘all work and no play makes jack a dull boy.’

ired of a large number of charger wires entangled together on
desk and a daily fight of unsolving the mess......here's a gift of
technology -THE WIRELES CHARGERS!!! yes charging mobile
phones and other electronic gadgets would be possible without
these chargers with long wires,here just a gauge, place the gadget on
power on, the works starts. So simple naa....!!!
Not wired, Not tired...!!!
While the idea may sound futuristic, it isn't particularly
new. NicolaTesla proposed theories of wireless power
transmission in the late 1800s and early 1900s. The
wireless transmission of energy is common in the
form of Radio Waves
Inductive Coupling is a method of wireless charging in use. It takes
three basic steps:
1.Current from the wall outlet flows through a coil
(primary winding) inside the charger, creating a magnetic field.
2.When a device is placed in the charger, this
magnetic field induces a current i
another coil (secondary winding) which connects to the battery.
3.This current recharges the battery.
A Splashpower mat uses induction to recharge multiple devices
Inductive coupling requires coils to be quite close together. No doubt
a stronger magnetic field will allow devices to work at some distance
Resonance and Wireless Power In November 2006, however,
researchers at MIT reported that they had discovered an efficient way
to transfer power between coils separated by a few meters. The team,
led by Marin Soljacic, theorized that they could
extend the distance between the coils by adding
resonance to the equation.
The theory uses a curved coil of wire as an
inductor. A capacitance plate, which can hold
a charge, attaches to each end of the coil. As
electricity travels through this coil, the coil begins
The researchers have named this ‘non-radiative energy transfer’ since
it involves stationary fields around the coils rather than fields that
spread in all directions.
In June 2007, the MIT team published a paper detailing a successful
demonstration of their prototype.They used resonating coils to power
a light bulb over a distance of about 2 meters.

and his team.
The word seems to be too bold,
but diving into it deep inside, we
discover a world full of excitement, power and a life full of knowledge
in its purest forms. Life become so exaggerated with it, we feel this is the
real meaning of life for an engineer. Infact, what we personally feel is,
this a life an engineer must live, infact this is a duty for an engineer. Our
honourable, Sir Albert Einstein once interacting with young lads quoted,
“I inherited science, understood it, added something to it and passed on
to you, now its your duty to do the same.” We, the engineers, have the
knowledge, have the potential to live the dreams of Sir Einstein, still we
use our talent to seek a job and feel happy earning our livings. Infact, this
has become the exact motto of our lives.
We all have heard of nanotechnology, heard of sunscreen creams too.
One of us imagined, thought, used his potential and gave us this valuable
present just using the mere basic concept of nanotechnology. This is just
a fraction of trailer of entire research world.

what we need, what we can contribute to this society, nation, earth.
Imagine what if this in place of this, this has more efficiency, this will save
energy and so on like this……..
Mr. Pranav Mistry, the great Indian researcher, and inventor of sixth sense,
used to prefer public transport to see public how they behave, what
they demand, what they need, and used to ponder upon how to device
products and technologies for them. Can you ever imagine, taking a snap
with just the gestures of your fingers??? But he did, he thought this wild
and to his effort, he has proved it and done wonders for us. Not only this,
in his college time itself he undertook many such projects, one of them
was the artificial sunflower, which always faced towards the sun. College
administration adopted this technology and used for solar panels….!!!
When this human being can do such wonders, why not we?? So, dudes
and dudettes, wake up, grab the opportunity and live your dreams!!!
But the real problem, that we see out here, is the ever widening gap
between the professors and we, the yet to be engineers.
The only meaning professors have in our life is awarding marks,
deducting marks and clearing suppli’s. This has become the real meaning
of engineering, in the present scenario of this campus. It is our life which
is getting wasted off, they are happy where they are, what they have
achieved. At this moment, I appreciate Harshit Garg, who against the
tradition, wanted to be indulged in research and projects, and with an
idea in his mind contacted professors.Today he’s the only guy in 2nd year,
we guess, who has a project to work on, and has found a path to live
his dreams. Its not that only a few have ideas, the cultivative minds of all
of us has something to ponder upon, but we move on kicking off that
budding idea that wants to bloom in us. So, bouncing out, out of the box,
transform your dreams to reality under guidance of these honourable
personalities, who teach us to walk through the wilderness in the path
Even the likes of Pranav Mistry, wouldn’t had been recognised, without
the guidance of learned professors.
At last, the only meaning of engineering is not just seeking marks
and clearing suppli’s. Burj-al-Arab is an answer for us all. An excellent
engineering marvel, whose each and every inch is made with planning
and calculation, against the odds they faced in each steps they stepped
out. Do you thing, we, by merely focusing on marks and suppli’s, can
create such a marvel. We definitely need some add on’s and this the
best time realise the needs and sharpen our skills and potential. Hence,
engineering has diversity of oppurtunities, the only need is to discover
the hidden dimensions of this fascinating life.
So concluding, we think we all again need to see “Three Idiots” once or
many times again. we promise, if we succeed to create an environment
here at NIT, like what that movie wanted to depict, we would be miles
and miles away from the standards we have today. We took that movie as
an entertainment, laughed at it, enjoyed it, and it went away. But those 3
hours meant a lot if we want to idealise it in our life we live here.
So wake up, we all had a long enough nap, and too much fun. Now we all
together will work for our dreams and for each other. We need hundred’s
of Phunsuk Wangdoo’s within our college. Every branch, every batch,
every room and every bed, we must say should have a PhunsukWangdoo
in its vicinity with capability of inventing the likes of virus invertor using
car battery and the best of all, equipped with so much potential that
even delivery of a baby with a vaccum pump would be a no wonder for
Lets all get up and promise our, Sir Einstein that yes, we will fulfil your
dream and challenge him, we’ll add something even better that you did,

In the future, you no longer have to worry about losing or
forgetting to put the key -said Tsai.
Further described by Tsai Yao-pin who teaches at the Technology
and Science Institute of Northern Taiwan, his team put on a chip
commonly used in video game console Wii as its core technology. This
chip is capable of detecting 3-dimensional movement. The ‘invisible
key‘ inventor was said to have used triaxial accelerometer technology
for door locks and a single-chip controller as the core control of the
system to open doorswithout using a key.
In addition to replacing the traditional key functions, Tsai made the
technology can also be used to lighten the homework. He claimed
could be used to turn on and off home appliances such as washing
machines, refrigerators, and others.
He estimated that it make take half a year for the invention to go
commercial as several interested companies have approached him.

FORGIVENESS W h e n
someone hurts us, forgiving that
person is our best response. But often our indignant
emotions make us overlook the subtle but vital line that differentiates forgiving a person
from trusting a person: forgiveness is for the past; trust is for the future. We are urged to
immediately forgive, but not immediately trust, the wrongdoer. Let’s explore this difference.
Whatever wrongs a person has done in the past can’t be changed; as long as we resent the
past, we stay stuck in it. Consequently, our thoughts, words, actions and even lives may
become resentment-driven, causing us to either clam up or blow up. When we clam up, we
drive our anger deep within, thereby unnecessarily inflicting ugly scars on our psyches that
may distort our personality. When we blow up, we drive our anger outward not just to the
wrongdoer, but to whoever crosses our way at the time of blowing up, thereby creating an
undesirable public image of being irritable. Thus both the resentment-driven responses –
clamming up or blowing up – are unproductive, nay counter-productive.
Therefore, the best response is that which frees us from resentment – and forgiveness alone
can do that. When we forgive a person, we accept the ground reality that the other person
being a fallible human is imperfect – as are we. We too may err tomorrow and be in need
of forgiveness. In fact, the logic of karma suggests that we may have hurt someone in the
past, just as someone has hurt us now. We then see the wrongdoer not as the cause, but as
the vehicle, of our suffering, which originated in our own past insensitivity. Underscoring
this philosophically informed vision, Srila Prabhupada would recommend that we eschew
becoming angry with “the instruments of our karma.” Even if our indignant feelings make
the logic of karma difficult to digest, still forgiveness retains its potential to free us from
So, we needn’t make our forgiveness conditional to the other person’s seeking it, but we
should certainly make our trust conditional to that person’s earning it by sustained improved
behavior. Conveying our forgiveness helps that person avoid the pitfall of self-justification,
and holding back our trust avoids the pitfall of that person remaining oblivious to the past
the hurting behavior; that would be masochism and there’s nothing laudable or spiritual
about masochism. At the same time, it needs to be stressed that there’s nothing intrinsically
laudable or spiritual about cultivating and actualizing revenge fantasies. So, we need to find
that balanced course of action which allows both us and the other person to grow spiritually.
To summarize, forgiveness involves our cultivating virtue independent of the other person,
whereas trust is our reciprocation conditional to that person’s
between the two, we can transform unfortunate
episodes in our relationships into spiritual
growth opportunities at least for
ourselves – and possibly even
for the other person.

t doesn’t matter if you win as long as you
give everything in your heart.
In order to succeed you must fail. Failure
is an essential step towards success. The
more successful the individuals, the more
failures they would have faced in the way.
These might be small failures such as being
rejected by a proposal or they may be larger
failures such as business failing. These
failures can propel you towards success.
Michael Jordan is a great example about
success through failures. There are many
lessons that can be learned through his
How do you respond to failure?
1. TAKE THE SHOT
Michael Jordan talks about how many shots
he missed. I am willing to take the shots and
miss rather than not taking them in the first
place. Are you willing to take the shots
which tend to miss?
2. DON’T LET FAILURES STOP YOU
FROM TRYING AGAIN
A missed shot didn’t stop him. If he had
stopped shooting because of one miss,
or not been willing to take the next game
shot, he could not be the champion he was.
Is a past failure stopping you from moving
3. LEARN EVERY TIME YOU FAIL
There is no doubt that Michael learned from
his failures. By learning from your failures
you will gain more success. Every lesson you
take from failure can be used to help you
succeed the next time. Failure simply shows
you what doesn’t work allowing you to do
what does work the next time. What can
you learn from your most recent failures?
4. KNOW YOUR WINNING SHOTS
Your game winning shots are the activities
which push you over the edge as you work
towards your goals. They are the things you
can do that allow you to win. You need to
know these important activities and look
for opportunities to take shots. What are
your game winning shots?
5. YOUR RESPONSE TO FAILURE
Not only was Michael a basketball superstar
he was part of great teams. With MJ the
Chicago Bulls won 6 championships.
Similarly, you need a team to succeed. Your
team will follow your lead. If you dismiss
failure, learn from it and quickly move on
with a positive attitude; your team will do
likewise. How is your response to failure
impacting your team?

management of Industrial process. The name Industrial
engineering often confuses students and parents and
lead to an imagination of a manufacturing industry.
This engineering stream is related to understanding,
development and implementation of systems involving
human being and other resources. In this course of study
student will learn about the methods to manage and
optimum utilization of resources available by applying
mathematical and engineering tools. During the course
they study about Product Design and Development,
work systems, logistics, production planning and
inventory control, Operation research, Quality Control
and recently Intellectual property system. Reference can
from other global institutions that are accredited by the
Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology,
Inc. (ABET). So, guys wake up! And get through the

Industrial Engineer can get jobs in almost all types of
industries. Self-employment opportunities are also
available as consultants or specialists in methods
and work operation usually after suitable years of
industrial experience. They can also join private R&D
establishments of big companies or as purchase

the broad-based nature of the course, they can work
with all types of engineering and manufacturing
industries in the private and public sectors. One

32-bit or 64-bit
(1) What is the difference between
32-bit and 64-bit versions of
The terms 32-bit and 64-bit refer to
the way a computer's processor (also
called a CPU), handles information.
The 64-bit version ofWindows handles
large amounts of random access
memory (RAM) more effectively than a
(2)When should I use 32-bit ?
There are some situations in which you
are better off using 32-bit Windows 7:
• If you use only 2GB of RAM, and do
not plan to upgrade anytime soon.
To really take advantage of 64-bit
Windows 7, you need minimum 4GB
• You have legacy devices like
scanners and printers that do not
have 64-bit device drivers. 32-bit
drivers are not supported under 64-
bit Windows 7, so you should make
sure all the devices you need to use
are compatible with 64-bit.
• You run old 16-bit applications that
were developed for Windows 3.1 or
DOS. These won’t run under 64-bit
(3)Can I run 32-bit programs on a
Most programs designed for the 32-
bit version of Windows will work
on the 64-bit version of Windows.
Notable exceptions are many antivirus
Device drivers designed for 32-bit
versions of Windows won't work on
computers running a 64-bit version
of Windows. If you're trying to install
a printer or other device that only
has 32-bit drivers available, it won't
work correctly on a 64-bit version of
Windows. If you are unsure whether
there is a 64-bit driver available for
your device, go online to the Windows
Vista Compatibility Center.
(4)What are the advantages of 64-bit
There are several benefits of going to
Windows 7 64-bit:
• With 32-bit Windows, you can use
a maximum of 4GB RAM. 64-bit
Windows 7 runs very fast with 4GB
and you can upgrade your RAM to 8
or 16 GB later, making your system
• You get better security with 64-bit
Windows. All 64-bit device drivers are
digitally signed, which means you will
not have random crashes.You also get
more advanced security features like
Kernel Patch Protection with 64-bit
(5)What can be potential drawbacks
to Windows x64 Edition ?
Windows XP was available only as
a 32-bit operating system for 32-bit
processors until 2005, when Microsoft
released a 64-bit edition. This version
of Windows XP did not see widespread
adoption due to a lack of available
software and hardware drivers. Vendors
were hesitant to invest in a platform
that seemed more novel than practical
for consumers at the time, which led
to compatibility issues with common
devices such as sound and graphics
cards. Most of the developers did not
see performance increases due to a lack
of applications with native support for
Given the increasing number of 64-
bit processors, Windows 7 x64 Edition
is unlikely to suffer the same lack of
support. A potential drawback stems
from the possibility that some hardware
vendors may not release Windows
Vista/7 x64 Edition-compatible versions
of drivers quickly.

Student, "but in all my garden there is
no red rose."
From her nest in the oak tree the
Nightingale heard him, and she looked
out through the leaves and felt sorry for
"Here is a true lover," said the
Nightingale. "His hair is dark as the
night, and his lips are red as the rose of
his desire, but passion has made his face
pale, and sorrow is upon his brow."
"The Prince gives a party tomorrow
night," murmured the young Student,"
and the beautiful girl that I love will be
there. If I bring her a red rose she will
dance with me till morning. But there
is no red rose in my garden, I shall sit
lonely and she will pass me by. She will
dance only with others, and my heart
"Night after night have I sung of love,"
thought the Nightingale," and what I
sing of, he suffers: what is joy to me, to
pain to him. Surely love is a wonderful
thing. It cannot be purchased from the
merchants, nor can it be weighed out in
exchange of gold."
" The musicians will play upon their
stringed instruments," said the young
Student, and "my love will dance to
the sound of the harp and the violin.
She will dance so lightly that her feet
will not touch the floor. But she will not
dance with me, for I have no red rose to
give her." He flung himself down on the
grass, and buried his face in his hands,
"Why is he weeping ?" asked a little
Green Lizard, as he ran past him with
his tail in the air.
"Why indeed ?" said a Butterfly, who
was fluttering about after a sunbeam.
"He is weeping for a red rose," said the
"For a red rose ?" they cried; "how very
But the Nightingale understood the
secret of the Student's sorrow, and she
sat silently in the oak tree, and thought
about the mystery of love. Suddenly she
spread her brown wings for flight, and
soared into the air.
In the center of the garden was standing
a beautiful Rose tree, and when she saw
it she flew over to it.
"Give me a red rose," she cried, "and I
will sing you my sweetest song."
But the tree shook his head. "My roses
are white, it answered; "as white as the
snow upon the mountain. But go to my
brother who grows beneath the
Student's window, and perhaps
he will give you what you want."
So the Nightingale flew over to the
Rose-tree that was growing beneath
the Student's window.
"Give me a red rose," she cried, "and I
will sing you my sweetest song."
But the Tree shook his head. "My
roses are red," it answered, "as red as
the feet of the Jove. But the winter has
chilled my veins, the frost has destroyed
my buds, the storm has broken my
branches, and I shall have no roses at
all this year."
"One red rose is all I want," cried the
Nightingale, "only one red rose! Is there
no way by which I can get it?"
"There is always a way ," answered the
Tree; " but it is so terrible that I dare not
tell it to you."
"Tell it to me." said the Nightingale. "I
am not afraid."
"If you want a red rose," said the
Tree, "you must built it out of music
by moonlight, and colour it with your
own heart's blood. You must sing it to
me with your breast against a thorn. All
night long you must sing to me, and the
thorn must pierce your heart, and your
blood must flow into my veins, and
"Death is a great price to pay for a red
rose," cried the Nightingale, "and life
is very dear to all. Yet love is better
than life, and what is the heart of a bird
compared to the heart of a man?"
So she spread her brown wings for
flight, and soared into the air. She swept
over the garden like a shadow, and like a
shadow she sailed into the tree.
The young student was still lying on the
grass where she had left him, and the
tears were not yet dry in his beautiful
"Be happy," cried the Nightingale, "be
happy; you shall have your red rose. I
will build it out of music by moonlight,
and colour it with my own heart's blood.
All that I ask you in return is that you
will be a true lover."
The student looked upon up the grass,
and listened, but he could not understand
what the Nightingale was saying to him,
for he only knew the things that are
written down in books.
But the Oak tree understood, and felt
sad, for he was very fond of the little
Nightingale who had built her nest in
"Sing me one last song," he whispered;
"I shall feel lonely when you are gone."
So the Nightingale sang to the Oak tree,
and her voice was like water bubbling
from a silver jar.
And when the moon shore in the
heavens the Nightingale flew to the
Rose-tree, and set her breast against the
thorn. All night long she sang, with her
breast against the thorn, and the Moon
leaned down and listened. All night long
she sang, and the thorn went deeper into
her breast, and her blood flowed out of
She sang first of the birth of love in the
heart of a boy and a girl. And on the
topmost branch of the Rose-tree there
blossomed a marvelous rose. Petal
followed petal, as song followed song. It
was pale at first, but the Tree cried to the
Nightingale to press closer against the
thorn. "Press closer, little Nightingale,"
cried the Tree, "or the Day will come
before the rose is finished."
So the Nightingale pressed closer
against the thorn, and louder and louder
grew her song, for she sang of the birth
of passion in the soul of a man and a
And a delicate colour of pink came into
the petals of the rose. But the thorn had
not yet reached her heart, so the rose's
heart remained white.
And the Tree cried to the Nightingale
to press closer against the thorn. "Press
closer, little Nightingale," cried the
Tree, "or the Day will come before the
rose is finished."
So the Nightingale pressed closer
against the thorn, and the thorn touched
her heart, and a fierce pang of pain shot
through her. Bitter, bitter was the pain,
and wilder and wilder grew her song,
for she sang of the love that lives even
The marvelous rose became crimson.
But the nightingale's voice grew fainter,
and her little wings began to beat and
her eyes became dim. Fainter and fainter
grew her song.
Then she gave one last burst of music.
The red rose heard it, and it trembled all
over with ecstasy, and opened its petal
to the cold morning air.
"Look, look cried the Tree, "the rose
is finished now." But the Nightingale
made no answer, for she was lying dead
in the long grass, with the thorn in her
At noon the Student opened his window
and looked out.
"What a wonderful piece of luck !" he
cried; "here is a red rose ! I have never
seen any rose like it in all my life." He
leaned down and plucked it.
Then he put on his hat, and ran to the
beautiful girl's house with the rose in his

the Student angrily; and he threw the
rose into the street, where it fell into the
gutter, and a cart-wheel crushed it.

student as he walked away. He returned
to his room and pulled out a great dusty
