Inspiring Change for Quality Education & Career Shri Lalchand Prasad THE CHAIRMAN OF INSPIRIA KNOWLEDGE CAMPUS Oftentimes, a radical and progressive change requires a catalyst. Since ages, quality educa- tion has always been that catalyst for inven- tors, pioneers, leaders, and the greatest minds on the planet. Education is an explicit inter- pretation of freedom. It is the sole medium for breaking the hell-bent boundaries of stereo- types. Education is life.
  4. 4. Message From the Managing Trustee Atul Gupta MANAGING TRUSTEE J P SAHU FOUNDATION There are so many memories that we created in the last one year, it would be unfair not to collate all of these memories in one place and preserve it forever. Thus this annual magazine gives the much desired opportunity and a platform to publish student’s thoughts and creativity that marks their zest for life. The magazine not only serves as a chronicle of various activities showcased by our college and members of faculty alike but also asserts our inner beliefs and perspectives and aptly puts forward various achievements of students in their joint and personal capacities. It is with this belief that I thank all those who have been instrumental in promoting the insti- tute to greater heights of distinction with particular reference to our dear students who have immensely contributed to the magazine. With a vision towards a shared future, I wish all my readers the very best in their personal and professional lives as we continue to move ahead with our vision of success. Our institution has taken firm steps in strengthening the academic-industry interface through student placements and industry interaction and a host of events and activities were con- ducted to keep our students exposed to constant changes in the corporate world in order to integrate the same into their path of learning. The arrival of the second edition of INSPIRE depicts the constant endeavour of Inspiria Knowledge Campus in furthering its mission of world class quality education, technology driven academic delivery and an undying focus on making students realize their potential to the fullest.
  5. 5. Convincing the Unconvinced Rahul Gupta OPERATIONS HEAD We’ve attained this level and still, we notice the need to keep pace with this internet- driven world, this advancing technology inducing digital in every sphere. Certainly, we are living through such life-changing times – in a snap or, in a blink of an eye, things change! Albeit the change, we introduce you to our Annual Magazine- “INSPIRE” which is akin to a light revealing the institution’s memoir, struggles, principles, values, and missions. It just feels surreal, evenly gratified & thrilled to have the first edition of INSPIRE being published. In the originality of its creation and layout, Inspire Annual Magazine attempts to mirror the values and the essence of the institution itself. Today, Inspiria stands in its new light and abides by its principles, shaping the destinies of the youths through quality education and training. Our Annual Magazine consequently intends to reflect and inspire the readers in the excellence in writings and aesthetic visual representation, in its promises to pre- cision and truth, and through fine discussions and editorial perspective and more alike. It seems only yesterday that we walked into a newly constructed campus. I remember ad- dressing merely a dozen new faces and wel- coming the fresh batch of students for the first time. And here we are now- 5 years from where we’ve started! May our horizons continue to grow broader. Regards. Truly, this present generation is rolling quicker!
  6. 6. Indrajit Chatterjee (HEAD - ACADEMICS) It is my pleasure to announce the second edition of our college magazine. The journey started in the year 2015 with the introduction of four cours- es. This year we will be offering nine courses for the year 2019. We have been able to spread our wings to include new innovative undergraduate degree courses such as Sports Management, Animation & Multimedia and Film & Television Studies. We direct a lot of emphasis in the area of liberal arts with a focus on critical thinking. Students take part in a wide range of extra curric- ular activities that are regular features in our aca- demic calendar. Our students actively participate in Sports and Games. Students have achieved success at university level competitions too. We have successfully completed a nation- al seminar, where more than 25 faculty mem- bers teaching different subjects from all over India attended and presented papers. This year we are starting inter-college paper presenta- tion by the students to inculcate the culture of research mindset within the student commu- nity. Our library has become rich in terms of collections of titles. Many renowned academi- cians and industry professionals have shared their experiences with us through lecture ses- sion in our campus. We have also conducted a leadership talk program, where senior ex- ecutives from IBM, NIIT, Infosys, NASSCOM among others, have addressed our students. This college magazine is the place, where students, members of faculty, staff members show- case their creativity and thoughts. We would also like to update the community as a whole with our activities. Preface I wish you all the best for this endeavour. With warm regards.
  7. 7. From The Faculty Social Media: A prominent trending force in journalism The advent of social media has revolutionized the way people communicate in the contemporary society and reshaped the very nature of journalism practiced in mainstream media. The digital space especially the popular social media platforms like Whatsapp, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter etc has provided great avenues for the masses to fraternize, thereby eliminating the barriers of time, space and distance. The primary reason for the rapid upsurge among the various social networking sites is contributed to it’s ability to instantly connect people from across the globe within mili sec- onds and also because smartphone can accompany with you in your pocket, not to forget the high speed internet connectivity. In the last decade or so, social media has undoubtedly become a dominant and growing source of news and information for hundreds of millions of people around the globe. It has not only changed the dimension of how masses consume news but also the process of gathering news. The chal- lenge for mordern day journalism is to compete with this new digital media platforms which are ram- pantly changing the media landscape. It has got quicker, immediate and more personal than anyone could ever conceptualize. We are well aware that news needs to reach its targeted audience quickly but with social media it travels even faster almost at the speed of light. The ability to publish or broadcast news on social media platforms at anytime of the day from anywhere makes it extremely time relevant compared to newspaper or television. Even the content is more dynamic since it can be constantly updated much faster than television and newspaper. The readers or viewers can not only witness the news content real time but also post and share views and feedbacks on the same. Social media gives an opportunity to reimagine the public sphere with more transparency and pro- viding much greater space for all citizens. Audience can now possibly have interactive dialogues and social interactions with the Journalists. The conventional linear communication process accus- tomed with traditional media forums is turning into two-way conversations thanks to social media. Social media also provides ample opportunities to ordinary citizens to share stories and facts from their neighbourhoods, locality, or community making it more consumer centric as well transforming the traditional nature of journalism where only a certified newsman was allowed to report newswor- thy information. Public awareness about socio-economic-political issues is very important and social media is facilitating a lot in this regard. Many issues which often gets ignored in mainstream conventional media have found new alterna- tive space to express the content and garner public attention. The future of media and its role in dis- seminating information will be constantly challenged by the inception of social newtorking platforms. The phenomenal growth and success of popular social media forums in circulating newsworthy con- tent is commendable with increasing powers laid on the hands of the consumers making it almost impossible to hide or supress newsworthy issues pertaining to common citizens. By DIPJYOTI DAS Asst. Professor (BMS)
  8. 8. The digital space is truly promoting the very idea of free speech and expression pivotal for a dem- ocratic society. But several challenges lies ahead since the digital space is still uncontrolled and unfiltered, subject to misuse from vested interest. Anonymity and lack of moderation are also some serious factors taken into consideration when we take into context the role a fabricated content can have on society. Sometimes it’s difficult to trace the veracity of a content as well as the origin. However, the larger question still remains to what extent the consumption of news through conven- tional media forums will be dented with the ever growing presence of social networking sites since the former still dominates the news industry. Independence of media is a battle which the conven- tional platforms are still aspiring for whereas the social media space till now enjoys complete eman- cipation from any hindrances. Probably freedom is the one exception where social media is ahead of the race compared to mainstream traditional media. Interesting days lie ahead to witness on the overarching role social media may play within the periphery of the news media ecosystem. JOURNALISM INSTAGRAM FACEBOOK WHATSAPP TWITTER YOUTUBE
  9. 9. I stare into the stormy sunset And ache for dawn to come I ask myself why - The inability to accept The story sunset Leaving me thirsting so. One day I’m sure I will know. I will feel the hues That the sunset brings As well as the calm grace Of the newborn dawn With equal ease - one day it will be. When that happens I believe it will The day That my spirit Will be truly set free And then I woke up one day And it hit me right away. I flew as a bird set free From The Faculty MY SPIRIT FLIES FREE
  10. 10. When I realised - I didn’t belong to me! Life owns us all She allows us to fall She watches us fly She grieves and mourns when we die So, What have I to fear? Neither hurt Rejection - Nor tear. Once I had realised within my heart That I was But a part Of a plan, of a scheme This is - Life’s dream. The thought set me free Like the way life wants me to be Higher and higher I soar For fear is with me No more- So come and join me As life travels through eternity With you And me. By STEFFI PRASAD Asst. Professor (BMS)
  11. 11. From The Faculty This Left Feels Right – Looking Into Decision Making When it comes to choice and decision making we all get confounded by the number of options that may lie before us; each promising a certain outcome with varying levels of certainty and ambiguity. Yes, we’ve all been through such situations before and possibly we are facing the same at this point of time. Humankind as a whole alone can think, conceive, articulate countless thought processes in their mindswitheachhavingitsownreflectivescenariousplayedwithintherecessesofthemind.Whatmen and women conjure in the deepest depths of their consciousness they themselves might never objec- tivelyrealizebuttherationalpartoftheconsciousmindrushesintoprojectanabstractionofthethought that we may somewhat comprehend. At the other level of the thought spectrum conscious thoughts surface and present themselves in totality that incorporates clarity of mind, self introspection of the deepest level, careful consideration and examination of scenarios that may aid in decision making. Advances in the science of decision making informs us about research findings that helps to il- luminate our thought processes. According to Ohio State University, generating at least three op- tions is a game changer. It enables one to engage in ‘out of the box’ thinking. It always helps. Dr.ThereseHouston,adecisionmakingexpertandauthorofHowWomenDecide,assertsthattoooften weonlygiveourselvesonlyoneoptionanddeludeourselvesintothinkingit’sactuallytwo.ShallIdothis or not? There’s actually one option present in purview – I’m going to make this change or I’m not going to.. But if one gives herself three options, one can decide better by giving room to more possibilities. A research at the University of California Davis by Dr. Jack Grinband asserts that if one post- pones the inception of the decision process even as less as 50 to 100 milliseconds, it makes the brain to focus attention on the most relevant information and shield out irrelevant distractors. Pausing for six seconds – the amount of time it takes emotion chemicals to be fully absorbed after release in the human system makes a better scenario to make more original, powerful lev- el-headed decisions based on our goals. This means that control can be exercised over percep- tual neurological processes to arrive at better decisions by resorting to the advantage of time. By ARNAB SEN Asst. Professor (BBA)
  12. 12. In all scenarios removing oneself from the contempletive situation that is in immediate reference and looking at the problem from a third party perspective may not only lead to better and wiser deci- sionmaking but it may also lead to a plethora of positive outcomes when pitched against the future. The same has been propounded by in experiments at the University of Waterloo. When we talk about decision making in our personal sphere which may range from the simplest of choice making such as “which type and color of carpet I would like to purchase?” to the relatively composite such as “ which are the critical, semi critical and peripheral factors that require serious consideration for searching a marriage prospect” to the highly complex such as “which religion should I follow that would lead me to self realization ?” one can adopt an equal perceptive premise to arrive at optimal decisions that would be in the best interest of the initiator. First of all, think about the problem at hand from a third person perspective to make sure that bias- es, preconceptions are recognized, checked and kept to a minimum if not altogether nullified. This would at the start assure you of a relatively neutral perspective of the problem. Then think of various ways that you can find out to look at the problem; everytime differently from a different point of view. Give yourself that much required time University of California Davisas possible for hasty decision making do not yield best outcomes in most circumstances. Keep your emotions on check but be emphatetic as well to respond to value based and emotional scenarios from a well thought, self de- liberated perspective. See to it that your thoughts are not clouded by moral dilemmas or dissonance of the mind and achieve a state of mental disassociation and liberation from the problem scenario so as not to get unduly influenced by various overwhelming factors. Only then what you perceive, feel, think and act upon will lead to the best possible outcome from the situation. It is therefore more of a habit that needs to be consciously nurtured in our minds than a mere knowl- edge of how to engage in productive decision making; training our minds to respond in the above ways that guarantees optimal decision making would not leave us astray or delude us into a world of oblivion but clarify our intellect and our senses through ways unprecedented.
  13. 13. What to do next? This is a typical question that excites, taunts and often haunts close to 30 million kids in India who graduate each year..... For the chosen few - the enlightened; the confusion trickles in the initial days of college boot camp and orientation and for the majority the ordeal stealths in the fag end of the second year. There are clouds that encapsulate many in its unchartered and in- substantial ethereal world of dust and haze leaving many in the impression of observed, self-devel- oped and many times imposed skepticism that leads to an apparently-self-contradictory or logically unacceptable conclusion. Inundated in the world of dissonance where one deliberately incites to challenge one’s own ability and in that fabricated torment shifts the mind from the deemed sanctity, peace and security of the shores to the wilderness and the ruthlessness of reality like misery per- sonified. Choices hover between abort or save mission! Like an arrogant and condescending dialectician, the maleficient diety of ego and restrain tries its hoodwink in a desultory fashion attempting pre- cariously not to judge others just because they have sinned differently. Life gets into a tizzy and in a convivial tinkering between the possible and the probable as the fear of the impossible lingers strongly behind. TheDegreeofLife:Factand Fallacy By NEERJANG LAMA Asst. Professor (BBA)
  14. 14. In the universal law of obsequious fullness of the senses, this all may rather appear little dramatic; but if it intrigues you, or acceptably terrifies you, then firmly move forward and salute yourself be- cause you are an impartial and a reasonable person. Quality of participation can’t always be mea- sured and I reckon you may feel utterly and completely wasted and this will last just for a while albeit the elasticity depends on how each one stretches and distinguishes the timeline for their own ‘while’. Life can be found in abbreviations, acronyms, palindromes, and oxymorons making sly and shy innuendos and juvenile delinquencies. The apprehension, which we beckon fear resides in all of us and all that it asks is for your diminutive, though undivided attention, and some understanding so it has a place in space, to live, breathe, like reparation to the emancipated soul and above all the willingness to reciprocate in the mellifluous stream of consciousness. It is the law of nature and its basic extinct of survival that concede beings to execute immediate, abrupt, represented, gradual or a completely impromptu move to ameliorate, although never to deteriorate. As we attempt to have a glimpse of life after degree; it ought to come to our realization that this is where the comfort zones cease to exist. Many succumb fervently to this larger than life bolt from the blue, without realizing that extensive and extended highly exciting and even far strongly loaded time- liness awaits to be explored. Rise above from the appalled and indistinct chatters of the masses. All it takes is a daring heist and it could net you millions. In a snap of a second, at times even faster than the speed of light the pain pulverizes to extinction and from all mental famine life transforms into a psychological feast. Go and be in all places in the world you want to be. Play, seek, manipulate, appreciate and acquire. Become the best of the best. To seize upon the opportunity, to grasp that moment of magic you need to leap forward with all the gusto and might. Merely gazing from the threshold of their naive dwellings, cuddled happily in the fortification of their womb of satiety, one can never reach out for the stars. Sanity never breathes solely in a sanitorium of isolation like vapor, unseen. Sanity frets and swells in an auditorium of openness, appreciation, and accolades. The alleviation does not transpire through a conspiracy of swearing out loud, but by simply wearing the priceless smile and walking confidently with grandeur to savor the flavor and celebrate the moment where people cheer and applaud as you pass by. That would be victory forever! They did it ... so can you... The battles seem inevitable. The ammunition of verbs solemnly attaching adjectives to one’s prop- er nouns. The degree sidewalks like the gentle strokes of the brush, attempting to utter and insert the alluring artist in you. The canvas of life lays tranquil, barely being swithered by the feeble trials, because it craves for the impetus of a plot, and as apparent, it may be, in a deluge of an emotional frenzy of allusion, illusion, and delusion the best of human technologies can fail. Nothing substantial can be installed unless it is instilled in our minds that the more we confront our fidelity and tragics, the more we discover and logically deal with it to yield prolific gains. Gains that provide an intuitive and innate sense about something momentous and monumental. Bestow upon yourself by yourself the vigor, heat, and the rhythm to choreograph the dance moves, to swing, undulate and step on the deck of aggrandizement so you bounce with glee; well coordinated with the jingles of the universe.
  15. 15. From The Faculty Growth & Development of Radio Storytelling and Drama Program in India Storytelling is an art and this art is slowly and steadily generating good business for FM Radio in India. Statistics showed a positive sign for FM Radio Industry and the good news is size of audi- ence based is increasing day by day. According to AZ Research report over 64% population in India listens to FM Radio every day. Radio is one of the oldest mediums but it still stands tall when it comes to reach states AZ Research’s Radio Listener’s Research Report. According to the report, more than 64% of people listen to FM radio every day. They attributed the increased ac- ceptance of FM radio to the ease of access. Since electronic media is a vast term, I would like to only focus on radio. In this research paper I would like to throw a light on Growth & Develop- ment of Radio Storytelling program in India. According to TechSci Research report “India FM Radio Industry Forecast and Opportunities, 2019”, the country’s FM radio industry is forecast to reach $ 656 million by 2019. Over the last five years, Delhi, followed by Mumbai and Bangalore, Kolkata, Lucknow have emerged as the leading markets for FM radio in the country. This is mainly attributed to the large number of FM radio listen- ers living in these regions. We’ve grown up hearing the stories from our elders, every children loves to hear stories from elders, it could be a grandfather, grandmother, mother, father or even siblings, these people became the storytellers for them, before going to sleep they develop the tendency to hear a fairy tale. This illus- trates the power of storytelling – why we often all fall in love in stories. Introduction By TAQUI HAIDER Asst. Professor (BMS)
  16. 16. “India FM Radio Industry Forecast and Opportunities, 2019” has evaluated the future growth po- tential of FM radio market across India, and provides statistics and information on market structure, market trends, market size, etc. The report includes FM radio projections and demand forecasting. The report is intended to provide cutting-edge market intelligence and help decision makers in tak- ing sound investment evaluation. Besides, the report also identifies and analyzes emerging trends along with essential drivers, challenges and opportunities available in the Indian FM radio industry. Radio drama is the art of performing stories, acts, or even full-lengths musicals to be broadcast on radios. These productions have no visual aspect at all, and rely on the dialogue, music, and sound effects to tell the story. In a period before television and films, radio plays were extremely popular, as they were so widely accessible. Radio dramas began as early as the 1880s, but have roots back to the Roman playwright Sene- ca, who wrote plays to be performed by readers in a purely auditory fashion, as opposed to act- ed on stage. In 1921, the first English-language radio drama aired in Pittsburgh in the United States. The response from the public was enor- mous, and a year later, entire Broadway musi- cals featuring the original casts would be per- formed and broadcast. In September of 1922, Schenectady’s WGY began airing weekly plays, and this trend caught like wildfire. Subsequent- ly, radio stations across the US. began airing plays or one-acts regularly, and hosted scripting contests to encourage more writing. Radio dra- mas grew exponentially in popularity between the 1920s and 1950s, declining only after tele- visions became more common in households. Radio Drama depicts the reflection of life in all spheres from very vast field of India and the world. The variety of themes, such as social, historical, mythological, biographical, folk, abstract, science fictions and family melodrama; the quality of presentation and ability to create mental pictures through words, sound effects and music is called Radio Drama .
  17. 17. Neelesh Misra occupies a unique space on the Indian creative landscape, probably the only creative professional to work across so many diverse genres. He writes Bollywood lyrics and scripts, narrates stories every night on radio to a nationwide audience of 31 million people, is an award-winning jour- nalist who now runs India’s first professionally run rural newspaper, Gaon Connection — and has written five books and edited two. His last day job was as Deputy Executive Editor of the Hindustan Times. He moved on to pursue his love for writing and creating content that connects him with more and more people by means of books, stories, songs, scripts and his voice. As a journalist, Neelesh Misra has covered conflict and insurgency over the past two decades in South Asia, travelling deep into the hinterland. His travels have taken him from the rebel heartlands of Kashmir to Naxalite-dominated areas of central and eastern India, to the faraway north-east which is home to some of the world’s longest running insurgencies. He has closely studied the Maoist insurgency in Nepal. For his reportage from India’s insurgency lands, he received the Ramnath Goenka Award For Excellence In Journalism and the K.C. Kulish Memorial Award in the year 2009. Many stations of AIR broadcast plays in Hindi and their regional languages. Radio adaptation of classics, novels, short stories and stage plays are also some of the highlights of Radio broadcast. Besides original plays, a large number of AIR stations regularly broadcast family dramas with object of eradicating deep rooted social evils and blind beliefs prevailing in the society. Serials projecting current socio-economic issues are also broadcast on a regular basis. The National Programme of Plays is an important programmme of Radio. The first NPP “PRAFULLA” a Bangla stage play by Girish Chandra Ghosh was broadcast in July 1956. Since then, the NPP is broadcast on every 4th Thursday of every month at 9:30 p.m. from all stations of AIR. The broad- cast is in Hindi and its translation in all regional languages as well on the same day, date and time. Through this NPP, the national integrity, harmony and colours of unity in diversity are presented to our listeners.
  18. 18. From The Faculty The Mega Sporting event- ICC Cricket World Cups The ICC Cricket World Cup is the mega event of one day international cricket. It is conducted by the International Cricket Council (ICC) every four years with preliminary qualification rounds leading to the final rounds of the tournament. This event is one of the most viewed sporting event globally. The first world cup was hosted by England in 1975. The event started on 7th June 1975. England has organized the first three events and officially it was known as the Prudential Cup. All the matches played in this tournament were of 60 overs per team and all were day matches with players wearing white jersey and playing with a red cricket ball. Eight teams participated in the inaugural tournament comprising of Australia, England, India,New Zealand, Pakistan, and the West Indies (the six Test playing nations at that time), together with Sri Lanka and a composite team from East Africa. West Indies won the tournament by defeating Australia by 17 runs in the final at Lords. Prior to the 1979 world cup an ICC Trophy competition was introduced in order to select the non test playing teams for the world cup with Srilanka and Canada qualifying for the tournament. The West Indies cricket team won the tournament for the second time by defeating the host nation England by 92 runs in the final. England again hosted the 1983 world cup for the third consecutive years. Zimbabwe qualified to play in the tournament through ICC Trophy Competition. Teams were divided into two groups of four each. Each team played the other three in their group once with the top two from both groups ad- vancing to the semi-finals. The Indian Cricket team was crowned the world championship title after they beat the West Indies by 43 runs in the final. The 1987 world cup was the first world cup to be hosted outside England. The tournament moved to the Asian continent with India and Pakistan getting the previledge of jointly hosting the tournament. The game was played 50 over a side as the daylight hours were less comparecd to the European continent. Australia emerged as the champion by defeating England by 7 runs. In the year 1992 the world cup was hosted by Australia and New Zealand, the two Australasian na- tions.The tournament has undergone a vivid change in the context of the game in terms of coloured clothing, white balls, day/night matches, and a change in the fielding restriction rules. South African team for the first time participated in the tournament. Pakistan the second asian team emerged as champions by defeating England by 22 runs in the final. In the year 1996 the world cup tournament again for the second time moved to the Asian continent with Sri Lanka getting the priviledge to host few group matches along with India and Pakistan. The host nation, the Lankan Lions become the champion of the tournament by defeating Australia by seven wickets in the final at Lahore. By DEBASISH RAY Asst. Professor (BBA-HM)
  19. 19. In 1999 the world cup went back to England. Australia beacame the champion for the second time by defeating Pakistan with eight wickets in hand. In the year 2003 the tournament was organized by the African nations comprising of South Africa, Zimbabwe and Kenya. The number of teams partcipating in the tournament was increased from twelve to fourteen teams. Australia emerged as the champion by defaeating India by 125 runs in the final in Johanesburg. The 2007 world cup was hosted by the Carribean Nations ( West Indies). The number of teams participating in the tournament was increased from fourteen to sixteen teams. Australia emerged victorious by defeating Sri Lanka in the final by 53 runs (D/L method) as it was a rain affected match. The Asian cricketing giants i.e. In- dia, Bangladesh and Srilanka hosted the 2011 world cup tournament. The number of teams participating in the tournament was decreased to four- teen teams. The host nation India lift- ed the world cup for the second time and for the first time in their home soil by defeating the island nation Sri Lanka by 6 wickets in the final in Mumbai. Australia and New Zealand together hosted the world cup after 23 years in 2015. The final was played between these two nations with the Australian team emerging victorious for the fifth time by defeating New Zealand by 7 wickets in Melbourne. The 2019 world cup tournament is the 12th edition of the tounament since inception and is going to be or- ganized by England and Wales from 30th May 2019 to 14th July 2019. The first match will be played at the Oval and the final at Lords.The format for the tournament will be a single group of 10 teams, with each team playing the other nine once, and the top four at the end of the group phase pro- gressing to the semi-finals. The win- ner will be decided at Lords on 14th July 2019. The interesting fact about this year tournament is that all the matches will be played in a round robin fashion.
  20. 20. From The Faculty Racism in English Language Language is a representative of society’s beliefs, political situations, economic statuses and trau- matic experiences. The power of language is to be the mute spectator and document all that goes around acting like a mirror to society. It is through language, that Prospero controlled Caliban in Shakepeare’s Tempest, Hitler created an outrage among the Germans to stay unified, V S Naipaul enlightened us with the growing trend of “mimic men”, Martin luther King gave the striking phrase of “I have a dream” which became a reality with Obama’s ‘Yes!! We Can’. There is a striking collabora- tion between the ‘language’ and ‘culture’ of a particular place. A small research stated that in Span- ish, a watch is said to walk, whereas in German, the watch functions, in French, the watch marches, and in English , the watch runs. English Language remains the dominating language all over the world and mostly in the colonised nations, who could free themselves from the shackles of slavery and second class citizenship, but could never emancipate themselves from the racism of the language. Even in the post colonial era, the thought process of an individual is guided through English language, as we know it is the lan- guage that taught us that, ‘Time flies, Watch Runs and Time is Money’, and on we go with the race. The one who fails in the race, loses time as well as money. English language remains such a powerful tool for us to decide the victim and the victor, the self and the other, the white and the black, the dark and the light. A small in- stance can be taken from the re- search of the play Tempest, by Shakespeare, which highlighted on the achievements of Prospero, the man who occupied the land of ‘barbaric’ people like Caliban. He taught language and culture to Caliban so that he could efficient- ly carry out his responsibilities as directed by his master. Was lan- guage a liberation or bondage for Caliban? Caliban used the same tool of language to create an outrage and revolution for freedom as he realized how learning could bring change. “ The stone that the builder refuse will always be the head cornerstone”, remarked by Robert Nesta Marley who is none other than the famous lyricist and musician, Bob Marley, was born out of a Jamaican white father and Jamaican black mother. Marley used the English language in the song to vital the effect of cementing his thoughts on being shunned by his white family. By SHRISTIKA CHHETRI Asst. Professor (BBA)
  21. 21. From The Faculty Will Robots Replace Human Beings? In today’s world ,we are in a phase where internet is a basic requirement. It is expected that in future all the work will be done by robots .The devices working on Internet of Things or IOT are capable of maintainig details about your health, to sense change in weather or to maintain the electronic devices which include home appliances like electric light, Acs etc. In 2016, Hong Kong has already developed the first humanoid robot named Sophia. Telsa is planning to start driverless cars which will replace the drivers. In 1942, Issac Asimov, science fiction author defined a robot as “”...a machine which may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm”. In todays world ,there are robots which are being used to collaborate with humans to ease the work.They are known as cobots.They are inteded to be used for interaction with humans physically. An Automated guided vehicle(AGV) is a special type of robot which is being used for transferring heavy machinery using marked lines on the floor Introduction Impact of Modern Technology on Human Life • Unemployment: Robotics and Artificial Intelligence is replacing man power for certain jobs which is no surprise. We all know that certain jobs are disappearing as those are totally being replaced by machines. Industrial revolution has also led to unemployment but the fields were machines used at that time were the ones having harsh environment for human beings. It has also been predicted that there would be large scale job losses again when machines will have the capability to think and make decisions. • Dependability: Man has become fully depen- dent on machines and has lost his creativity by becoming dependent on machines. Many people today struggle with simple calculations without us- ing calculators and mobile phones. Though these tools make our life simple, we may become highly dependent on them. • Wars and Destruction: The affiliation between AI and nuclear war is acknowledge. Modern tech- nology could be a major explanation for increasing war because of producing of recent weapons. By NILAV DARSHAN MUKHOPADHYAY Asst. Professor (BCA)
  22. 22. The sensing technology present in robot is very precise and accurate as compared to humans. Their brains consist of the core functioning at its peak potential with nothing to hold it back.It can process a large amount of data in speed which is uncomparable to human beings.They can work for 24x7 for 365 days without any wages making robots a cheaper option as compared to human beings.They can be used to work in harsh environment like mining . Even though the robots lack the emotion ,the robots can make more logical and faster decisions “But will they take over man.” • Environment: We are hooked in to fashionable technology that the power consumption has enhanced. Increasing use of vehicles has increased air pollution that is damaging the environment. The impact of technology on the environment is severe and is accountable for forceful climate changes. Global warming is resulting to many diseases in humans. There is conjointly extinction of many birds, plant and animal species due to the changes in climate. The answer will be possibly no because the robots require training which is being provided by the humans.They work according to the commands which is fed into the system’s memory.The humans have a special power of adaptability to change which is provided to them from nature.Whereas as the robots are totally dependent on commands,they cannot change their code themselves for different environment.They are mostly made to work for a particular environment. They can not understand emotions eventhough they can generate which is composed of a sequence of facial expressions and/or gestures. Since they lack emotions, sometimes the outcome of decision can be very evil. Even though ,the robots can defeat humans in some aspects but the relationship between man and machinery is dependent on each other as man need machinery to ease his work and machin- ery require man to provide the commands to machinery. Is Robot over Man? Is Man over Robot? Conclusion
  23. 23. From The Faculty Emerging Challenges in Cyber Security (ESPCCS) Access control has been and will always be one of the centre pieces of cyber security. The future of access control focus on three necessary characteristics of future information systems and tribute, automation and adaptation. Future access control policies delegating more of the routine being fine grained, at the same time which are future access control are properties of relevant entities, Emerg- ing Security and Privacy Challenge of Cyber Security(ESPCCS) by delegating more of the routine, future built automation and adaptation, however human users are configure to access around these three systematic element of the transaction on dependable and secure computing on data and ap- plication security leads multiple terms conduction research of many aspect of cyber security includ- ing secure information share, social computing security , on access control model and technology conference on computer and communication security term conduction research on many aspect security including secure information sharing, social and urban development of new age technology leading government organisation, lecture all over world. The world is spinning on an electronic spindle, where the cyber threats are the considerable accounts needs to be wary. Looking onwards 2018’s ransomware attack ,facebook breach which is identified on16th of September 2018,the biggest whistle-blower leak in history of FIFA,bug within the website of Google+was sharing the access to the accounts and data from Google+ profile between 2015 till March 2018,cyber-attack on UBER which happened to expose 57 million customers and driver data on 2016, cybersecurity breach on BRITISH AIRWAYS which affected around 380,000 transactions, around 2 million T-Mobile customers who were based in the US had their account details breached in which their names, email IDs, account numbers, billing details and encrypted passwords. Cyber defenders need to be very circumspect on some probable challenges that might be : Deepfakes/Phishing : Deepfake is an AI-based technology used to produce or alter video con- tent so that it presents something that didn’t, in fact, occur .Deepfake is an AI-based technology used to produce or alter video content so that it presents something that didn’t, in fact, occur. So the hacker will either be flooding the world with fake videos(DeepFakes) on some sensitive issues which will have very low frequency of discrimination with respect to its original version or will acquir- ing the control over the users credentials by Phising.

  24. 24. Poisoining of data set: to be realistic, Artificial intelligence is been used to anticipate and detect the cybercrimes by providing the model with trained data. A Generative Adversarial Network (GAN) is a class of machine learning systems where two neural network contest with each other in a zero-sum game framework. This technique can generate photographs that look at least superficially authentic to human observers, having many realistic characteristics. Now using this technology its a quite handy job to predict the algorithms and target the trained data sets to poison the whole model. Hacking of blockchain technology: a way for one Internet user to transfer a unique piece of digital property to another Internet user, such that the transfer is guaranteed to be safe and secure, everyone knows that the transfer has taken place, and nobody can challenge the legitimacy of the transfer. But it’s still early in their development, and researchers are finding bugs in some of them. So are hackers, who have exploited flaws to steal millions of dollars’ worth of cryptocurrencies. Target on the cloud: Cloud computing is the the use of various services, such as software de- velopment platforms, servers, storage and software, over the internet i.e remotely, often referred to as the “cloud”. This makes super-tempting targets for hackers. Their intensity is to breach the company servers as well as to tamper the clients profile too. The world leading companies and organisations can afford the cost of cybersecurity defences but this will effect the small industries. The extension of technology is in its pace wich require a broadspectrum of security to protect the human race from themselves economically and socially.
