  3. 3. Building A New Ideas Nation!! I ndia has a rich tradition of path breaking ideas, from the zero in abstract mathematics, to the daily jugaad, ingenious improvisation to make up for missing systems and scarce resources. Selling paint in 100 ml tins and shampoo in sachets are India's contribution to global marketing strategies. From the lowest cost car to low-cost water purifiers and dozens of tech innovations, including a way to have email on phones without GPRS, are being churned out of India these days. The power of Indian ideas has been acknowledged by TIME Magazine that inducted five Indians in this year's list of The World's 100 Most Influential People; Manmohan Singh, who is guiding India as Prime Minister in to the ranks of great powers, has made India a critical engine of global growth, a vital partner in global security and a model for democratic development. Sachin Tendulkar's act of scoring a double century-200 runs- in a one day international match- only one man to do so, has aroused a sense of awe. Dr. Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw, who created a biotech company in her garage, has given new hopes to poor cancer victims by devoting $10 million to creating the 400- bed Mazumdar Shaw cancer centre in India where poor patients will be treated for free in the evenings, apart from donating $ 2 million to support help insurance coverage for 100,000 Indian villagers.Chetan Bhagat, a former investment banker broke out as a writer with his novels one night @ the call centre and 5point someone, which inspired the film 3 idiots, the biggest hit in history, has been able to inspire brave young people giving their dreams a chance. Sanjit “Bunker” Roy, 64 has nurtured a grass-roots social entrepreneurship by training more than 3 million people for jobs in the modern worlds in buildings so rudimentary; they have dirt floors and no chairs. These “barefoot professionals” then return home to use their new skills as solar engineers, teachers, weavers, architects, doctors and more. Nitin Nohria, an IIT- Bombay alumnus has broken one of the highest glass ceilings in the world with his appointment as the dean of Harvard Business School. A scholar of leadership and organizational change, Nohria is keen on forging a vision for Harvard Business School that will enable it to remain a beacon for business education for the next 100 years. The IITian turned cop Ashok Kumar has evolved the need of a pro-active people oriented approach in policing, which he has practiced in his career and brought out effectively in his book 'Human In Khaki'. We are as yet building much of social and physical infrastructure that ideas need to bloom in to creation of a new value. We carry all the power we need inside ourselves already: We have the power to imagine better and we have power to culminate dreams in to reality.

  5. 5. A message of hope M aking oneself distinct is the order of the day. Differentiation is necessary to survive in the era of competition. With a strong will and focused attitude we can certainly change the world around us. With this 11th April 2010, Resonance has successfully entered in its 10th year. I wish to congratulate all my old & new students and all my staff members whose persistently diligent efforts have made this possible. The hard work and labor of my students and staff members that goes in making the brand “Resonance” different, powerful and dependable is sincerely appreciable and it is very much evident from our results of IIT-JEE 2010. IIT-JEE 2010 results opined a new spectrum of progress. Crossing the mark of 1000 selections from Classroom Programmes and achieving almost 50% result of total Hindi medium selected students from the entire country have been accomplishments of remarkable significance. Appreciable increase in the result of girls from 161 in 2009 to 265 in 2010 and the increase in the result of each and every study centre such as Jaipur 86 over 47, Bhopal 42 over 18, Delhi 51 over 19, Lucknow 25 over 13, Kolkata 8 over 2, Mumbai 13 over 10 and Nagpur 27 over 5 of the previous year speak of consistent progress of Resonance. The total classroom result is increased by 25% from 859 to 1078. 14 All India Ranks in top 100 (4 from Yearlong Classroom Contact Programmes and 10 from Distance Learning Programmes) with Mehul Kumar securing AIR-19 (GEN), Gautam Sumu obtaining AIR-36 (GEN), Kanishk Katariya achieving AIR-44 in General Category and AIR-1 in SC Category and Kumar Gautam attaining AIR-60 (GEN), all from Yearlong Classroom Contact Programmes, make Resonance feel proud. Mehul Kumar Sharma, a meritorious student of Yearlong Classroom Contact Programme (YCCP) of Jaipur Study Centre of Resonance has proven the talent of a genius with distinguished mental prowess which he developed by regular practicing and quick improving. Apart from cracking IIT-JEE 2010 with All Indian Rank (AIR)-19 (GEN) and AIEEE 2010 with AIR-76, he is also one of the five finalists who got selected to represent India in the 41st International Physics Olympiad (IPhO) to be held in Zagreb, Croatia. Amit Panghal, also a student from our Yearlong Classroom Contact Programme at Jaipur Study Centre got selected for the final stage of 42nd International Chemistry Olympiad (IChO) 2010 to be held from July 19th to July 28th 2010 in JAPAN. He not only qualified IIT-JEE 2010 with All India Rank (AIR) -563 (General Category) but also AIEEE with AIR 364. VICTORY, the Felicitation Function for IIT-JEE -2010 qualified students from Resonance unraveled the proverbial potential of successful students, was organized on June 8, 2010, helped the students in getting familiar with counseling procedure, selection of branches and institutes. Students and faculty members from other centres witnessed the fruits of the indubitable hard work at Resonance. I, on behalf of Resonance wish my selected students a great future ahead, full of fame, success and happiness. Resonance had taken an initiative in 2009 to support those students who had utilized their both the attempts in IIT-JEE by starting a course 'AJAY' which met its objective with 83% students succeeding with good ranks. Resonance's students from IIT-JEE division have secured 24, 76, 81, 92, & 93 in top 100 in AIEEE 2010 while cracking IIT-JEE 2010. The fact that 8678 students (Classroom Contact Programme: 6187, Distance Learning Programmes: 2416 & AJAY: 75) from Resonance have achieved success in AIEEE 2010 is an assurance to all JEE aspirants that their hard work will pay them well in other exams also. IIT-JEE 2010 cutoff has been 190 marks over 178 for the General Category, 171 marks over 161 in OBC and 95 marks over 89 in SC/ST and PD Category in 2009. The analysis reveals that the pattern of the questions was not new for Resonance students but there are few things to learn. Students should make efforts to improve the speed so that even a lengthy paper could be managed well. There were too many calculations in the questions this time. The students should therefore attempt at developing their calculation skills instead of depending on calculators while practicing at home. Here, I take an opportunity to also welcome my new students of academic session 2010-11 (VIKAAS, VISHWAAS, VISHESH, VIPUL & VIJAY courses) who have trusted in Resonance to fulfill their dreams to victoriously turn them into reality. Our 'VIJETA' students have already won half the battle. Students of 'VISHWAAS' course can learn from their predecessors who have headed for IITs with their unfailing efforts in 2010. Repeater batch students can depend on the 60% result share of Resonance's successful students of 2010. I assure that with your complete support Resonance with a pool of capable faculty team will certainly benefit you all to help you realize your dreams easily. Lets all try to differentiate ourselves with hard work, persistence and perseverance. R K Verma B.Tech., IIT-Madras, 1994 Managing Director ANUNAAD, July- September 2010 5
