    To me it doesn't make any sense for separate thread if there are no regular updates (not daily though),this will just clog the Trichy sub-forum and server space.
    Secondly I see many redundant posts.Members are still posting news in main thread even though its already posted in specific thread.Looks like they are just reading the main thread and not other threads.

  • The Madras high counrt has directed the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) to consider a proposal of SRM University to bring the off-campus centre at Irungalur, Tiruchi, under the ambit of the deemed university. The proposal was made in 2007.

    The institution had applied to the MHRD on August 28, 2007 following the UGC Guidelines, 2000, for permission to establish the Chennai Medical College Hospital at Irungalur. It also sent a proposal to the University Grants Commission (UGC) on January 12, 2008 for permission to start medical, dental, engineering, para-medical, hotel management and catering technology, science and humanities courses on the new campus.

    After the university obtained the necessary permission, a UGC resolution on September 25, 2009 recommended that the union government bring the off-campus centre (comprising SRM Institute of Science and Technology, Irungalur and Chennai Medical College and Hospital, Irungalur), under the ambit of SRM University. This was communicated to the Centre by the UGC in a letter on September 30, 2009. "Both institutions will be reviewed annually for a period of three years and subsequently, every five years by the UGC," the letter said.

    The government was spending heavily on higher education, Registrar T. Ramaswamy said. He received a CD on the course curriculum from Vice Chancellor K. Meena at a function organised for inauguration of the programme.

    The Vice Chancellor said the marketing field has evolved noticeably.

  • Peeved over the ‘intransigence' of the Vice-Chancellor of Anna University of Technology–Tiruchi (AUT-T) P. Devadas Manoharan in dealing with critical issues involving the All India Council for Technical Education and the State government's admission policy, the Anna University Tiruchirapalli Affiliated Self-Financing Engineering Colleges Association intends to approach the Secretary of Higher Education for remedy.

    Even as the TANCA (Tamil Nadu Common Admissions) 2011 counselling for M.E./ M.Tech., M.Arch., and M.Plan. programmes under general category got off to a start on Monday, managements of six colleges that had already secured approval of the AICTE (All India Council for Technical Education) – notified through its web portal – for starting new or additional M.E. programmes found to their dismay that these programmes did not find a place in the TANCA 2011. They felt cheated upon learning that the AUT-T had not replied to a communication from the Anna University Chennai (which coordinates TANCA 2011) seeking the affiliation status of the six colleges for the new programmes. The Vice-Chancellor had bluntly told a delegation of the affected managements on Monday that the university's role was only to affiliate the programmes based on the ‘hard copy' of AICTE's approval letter, and that it had nothing to do with the admission carried out under TANCA 2011. There was no need to respond to the clarification, he had explained. The Vice-Chancellor's obdurate stand pushed the six colleges: Ramakrishna College of Technology, MAM School of Engineering, MAM College of Engineering, MAM College of Engineering and Technology, J.J. College of Engineering and Technology, and Indira Ganesan College of Engineering, into a predicament of being left out of the TANCA 2011 process for the new programmes.

    When asked on the counselling issue, Mr.Devadas Manoharan said the six colleges faced problems due to shortcomings in furnishing required information for TANCA 2011. Eleven other colleges that are a part of the counselling process did not face any such problems, he claimed. “Unlike in the case of UG admissions, the colleges could fill all their PG seats even without taking part in counselling process. They could choose to fill all their seats under management quota.” Dismissing corruption charges levelled by the managements of affiliated colleges, Mr. Devadas Manoharan maintained that he was performing his role with “utmost sincerity and responsibility” in the interests of students. Late in the night, the AUT-T responded to the clarification sought by TANCA 2011 authorities through a fax message stating that the affiliation was pending for the new courses. This response has complicated matters further, official sources said adding that other Universities had replied that affiliated colleges intending to offer new courses were eligible to do so.

  • University clears process for colleges to offer M.E. courses


    To include six colleges in the TANCA counselling
    The Anna University of Technology–Tiruchi (AUT-T) on Tuesday reportedly sent a second fax communication in a gap of two days to the TANCA (Tamil Nadu Common Admissions) 2011 authorities, paving way for inclusion of its six affiliated colleges that have applied to start new M.E. programmes, in the counselling process.

    The TANCA authorities were in a fix as the AUT-T had intimated in its first fax communication sent on Monday that affiliation was pending for the six new courses. However, in the second letter, the university had explained that though the inspection was due for the courses, the six colleges could be included in the counselling process, though they had secured the approval of All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE).

    The university, which earlier took a stand that it had nothing to do with the admission process, later thought it fit to toe the line of the State's other technical universities in dealing with the issue.

    As far as the TANCA authorities are concerned, the requirements are the AICTE's approval letter, letters from the respective colleges on the number of seats they intend to surrender for the common counselling, and a letter from the respective universities on the affiliation status. Since all the requirements have been fulfilled, the six colleges were included in the counselling process, sources said.

  • Self-financing colleges seek status quo on M.Phil guidance

    The Association of Principals of Self-Financing Colleges (APSFC) has requested Bharathidasan University to maintain status quo on M.Phil guidance for this academic year.

    Since most of the self-financing colleges situated in rural areas offer education for first generation students from poor socio-economic background, the institutions will be able to waive tuition fee in the event of the University reducing affliation fee to Rs. 50,000, Association Secretary P.S. Joseph, Principal, Thanthai Hans Roever Arts and Science College, said in a press release.

    At a recent meeting to elect new office-bearers, the principals adopted a resolution to register their association as per the norms of the Tamil Nadu Registrations Act. The APSFC requested the University Grants Commission to sanction funds for meritorious project proposals from self-financing colleges recognized under 2f and 12B of the UGC Act.

    The UGC must take note of the reality that the benefits of such funding would reach poor students.

    The members thanked K. Varadharaajen, Chairman and Founder, Roever Educational Institutions, Perambalur, for motivating the association to play a pro-active role.

    The new office-bearers for 2011-12 constitute V.

  • The National Institute of Technology–Tiruchi (NIT-T) will submit to The Royal Society, London, and the Department of Science and Technology, New Delhi, a follow-up report in the next few weeks about the three-day ‘Indo-UK Workshop – 2011 on ‘Current Development of Wastewater Treatment in India' it conducted from August 20 to 31 with their sponsorship.

    Cost-effective solutions for treating industrial and domestic wastewater that were deliberated upon by 19 experts, including four from UK, during the workshop are to be listed in the report. A special issue on the outcome of the Indo-UK collaboration through the workshop will be brought out, according to the organisers.

    It will be desirable for Indo-UK think tanks to offer solutions from Indian perspective to address challenges posed by factors like arsenic contamination of groundwater, mostly in Indo-Gangetic plain; presence of cadmium, mercury and lead contents in water, and brackishness of water, Vijayamohanan K. Pillai, Director, CSIR-Central Electrochemical Research Institute, Karaikudi, said, addressing the workshop's valedictory session. Nanotechnology, he said, offers promising solutions.

    Technology helps in water treatment and remediation, and electrochemical sensing of pollutants. There were solutions, but the question was how cost-effective they were, he said. In the Indian context, the problem of water shortage was being caused due to rapid urbanisation. Dr. Pillai saw a welcome development in the constitution of the National Water Mission under the direct supervision of Prime Minister.

    Presiding over, the Director of NIT-T Srinivasan Sundarrajan sounded confident about the Institution playing a key role in wastewater management in the coming years. N. Anantharaman, Dean – Academic Programme, emphasised on the need for identifying simple techniques to measure quality of water. The economic feasibility of technology-application on a mass scale must be factored in through inter-disciplinary approach, he said.

    G. Arthanareeswaran, Assistant Professor, Department of Chemical Engineering, NIT-T, presented the workshop report. T.K. Radhakrishnan, Department Head, also spoke.

    Ashok Rebecca Buchanan, dressed in a pink salwar, comes out to greet us along with her friend Tillodore Wilton alias Tilly. Tilly, a farmer from Glasgow, has been on the move since March to raise awareness of environmental issues.

    She started from the symbolic Heathrow in London, where many a journeys take off – almost daily. Only difference, however, is that, she took off on a bicycle. Pedalling till Dover and taking a ferry over the English Channel to Calais in France, Tilly has cycled through Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, Austria, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia, Albania, Kosovo, Montenegro, Macedonia, Greece, Turkey, Iran, UAE and finally into India after 9000 kilometres of riding.

    Tilly came down to Devarayaneri to join Rebecca in learning about the Narikurava culture. “It's very exciting to meet the Narikuravas. Their community structures are distinct from other communities that surround them.” says Tilly. Rebecca, who has been living here for three months, is involved in documenting the Narikurava culture and spreading awareness on their needs. Developing communication skills of teachers and bringing out the creative side of children through soft skills and art are her goals.

    The University of Glasgow graduate, hailing from a gypsy community, is one of the few from her community to have completed college. She has
    devoted herself to social causes . She had taken care of children in Germany, worked at an orphanage in Cambodia and at an anganwadi in Jaisalmer, Rajasthan. She draws parallels between her community and the Narikuravas, “Both are either nomadic or semi- nomadic, always on the move,” she reckons.

    On the education scenario she says, “Thirty five per cent of the gypsies would be literate as compared to the 50 odd per cent here.” There is one major cause of the Narikurava's both Rebecca and Tilly is backing. “They should be given the scheduled tribe (ST) status as there is still inequality and discrimination, says Rebecca. “I was travelling with a Narikurava and the bus conductor refused to halt at our bus stop despite repeated pleading from both of us,” said Rebecca to buttress her argument.

    They are also contemplating to launch an online signature campaign to build a strong case for including the Narikuravas under the Scheduled Tribes. Just as the Narikuravas, who are not bounded by the limits of time and space in their search for livelihood, there is a sense of limitlessness that characterises kTilly and Rebecca as they tread along the path to discover more about cultures and diversity.

  • The annual book bank project organised by the Rockcity welfare association (RWA) education and health charitable trust, here on Friday, witnessed spate of donations from philanthropists. Realising the growth and achievement of the association over the years, a group of five persons including a woman student-beneficiary of the trust, volunteered to contribute their might.

    But, most heart-rending was an address by N.Srinivasan, deputy director of Central Excise and Customs, who announced a donation of Rs.5,000. Going down the memory lane, he recalled how he got the books from the Rajasthan youth association. “Hailing from an economically weaker section, I got donated books for my B.Com course from 1979 to 1982,” he said, promising to offer the sum next year for this project. His father, a vedic scholar, could not meet his educational expenses, forcing him to get the books from the bank.

    Another girl, Akilandeswari, who completed her undergraduate course last year through the trust's books, said she was an employee of the Central government department. Her father was a watchman and could not manage to take up her education expenses. She specifically thanked the trust's woman manager who extended courtesy while tracing the books relevant for her syllabus.

    R.Venkatasubramanian, general manager, City Union Bank, appreciated the growth of the book bank in terms of number of beneficiaries-from 107 students in 1998-99 to 1,351 during 2011-12. He would institute a special prize for toppers in the commerce course from next academic year, he said.

    T.V.Murali, chief executive officer, Mangalam Promoters and Manak Chand Kothari, proprietor of Kothari garments, promised to offer Rs. 1 lakh each. Of them, Mr.Manak Chand Kothari handed over the cheque for Rs.1 lakh on the spot.

    S.Kunjithapatham, secretary of Shrimati Indira Gandhi College for
    Women, said that the trust could organise its annual functions at the college free of cost. Earlier, Mr.Venkatasubramanian handed over the ‘Sri Brijmohan Choudhari memorial rolling trophy to Bishop Heber College for best implementation of the book bank project. Ashok Gandhi, chairman of the project, said that so far about 15,000 students benefited under the project in the last 14 years. Cash prizes were also given to project beneficiaries in appreciation of their academic performance.

    A one-day international seminar on cosmo chemistry was organised by the Seethalakshmi Ramaswami College here on Wednesday in connection with the diamond jubilee celebrations of the institution and International Year of Chemistry. The chief guest Dr. Ramachandran Ganapathy, Scientist, Baker Fellow (retired), JT Baker Chemical Research Laboratory, Phillipsburg, USA delivered his lecture on cosmic truth, unveiling unknown facts relating to meteorites. Most precious stellar entities had innumerable information stored in them, he said, adding that the existence of several amino acids other organic molecules in meteorites which dates back to 5.6 billion years was testimony of life even during that period.

    Every cosmic accident had indirectly helped the evolution of life, he said, while explaining the technique of scanning the age of any object through different dating techniques. Dr. Ganapathy donated a rare and invaluable piece of meteorite weighing about 1.5 kilograms to the college. The meteorite, supposed to be a part of supernova explosion, was found in 1800 at Gibeon, Namibia in South West Africa.

    Ms. Radha Ganapathy, Lecturer (retd) Community College, New York, USA, and an alumna of the college exhorted science students to go for problem solving rather than memorizing. A total number of 15 articles on cosmo chemistry were received at the seminar. The college Principal Kanaka Bhashyam delivered the keynote address. K.

  • Training on molecular biological techniques

    New advances in biotechnology are poised to revolutionize applications in live-stock improvement, according to K. Kumanan, Professor & Head, Department of Animal Biotechnology, TANUVAS.

    "Biotechnology represents the new wave of technology that could be more transformative in its impact than information technology. In some ways, its impact is more immediate and humane as it seeks to find solutions to the problems of human suffering and human want," he said, inaugurating QUEST – 2011, a two-week hands-on training in molecular biological techniques, earlier this week at the Bharathidasan University. There is a need to strengthen this discipline in our universities and in medical research institutions, he emphasised. Dr. Kumanan also presented a paper on molecular disease diagnosis.

    P.K. Sahoo, ICAR National Fellow, Fish Health and Management Division, CIFA, Bhuvaneswar, delivered a lecture on ‘Disease resistance through selective breeding: Approaches in developing molecular and immunological markers' while K. Balamurugan, Associate Professor, Department of Biotechnology, Alagappa University, and K. Natarajaseenivasan, Associate Professor, Department of Microbiology, Bharathidasan University, presented technical papers on ‘RNAi for Functional Genomics' and ‘Leptospiral protein and their significance for the diagnosis of leptospirosis' respectively.

    Presiding over the inaugural session, Vice-Chancellor K. Meena spoke of the importance of applications of molecular biological techniques in bioinformatics for promotion of science and technology. L. Uma, Professor and Head, Department of Marine Biotechnology, addressed the about 200 participants comprising faculties, research scholars and students.

    According to the Organising Secretary, K. Anbarasu of the Department of Marine Biotechnology, the training programme is funded by the Department of Biotechnology, New Delhi; Council for Scientific and Industrial Research; Tamil Nadu State Council for Science and Technology; and Bharathidasan University.

    Need to strengthen discipline in medical research institutions, universities underlined

    The Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Trichy has not failed to fill up its quota of seats. On the contrary, it has admitted students well beyond its scheduled intake. The institute, which is in its first year of operations had an earlier sanction for just 60 students. However, during admission, the institute took on 84 students instead, making it one of the only IIMs to take in such a huge number in its first year.

    When asked how the sanction came about overnight, dean Academics Prof V Gopal replied that as long as there is an infrastructure in place for more students, it is not a problem getting it passed. More students, means more fees and less dependence on the government grant. So what was supposed to be one class of 60 students, has today turned out to be two classes of 41 and 43 students each. One can easily say that IIM Trichy actually fell short by 36 students for doubling its actual sanctioned quota of 60 students! Prof Gopal, who also teaches Finance and Accounting said that since a huge pool of good students had applied, the institute decided to take a bigger number.

    Officials at IIM Trichy are honest enough to say that they had not expected to many students to apply and join as well. At first, since the initial intake was 60 students, arrangements were made with that number in mind, be it classrooms, hostel rooms or the canteen facilities, but with the increase, capacity was given an overnight push. ”We were ready with the infrastructure only then that we decided to go ahead with the additional number of students,” assured Prof Gopal. Thankfully, IIM Trichy which functions from the National Institute of Technology campus has had much of its infrastructure problems sorted out because of its location. Not only are some of the hostel premises shared but the sporting arenas, some canteens and the mess in some cases is also shared with NIT students. In fact, IIM Trichy functions from what was originally the library building of NIT.

    As far as forced diversity goes, IIM Trichy, like some of the other IIMS is going to adopt the ‘forced diversity’ principle from next year for non-engineers and women candidates. While female candidates will get a boost of 5 per cent, those from non-engineering backgrounds will also be given a lift-up. IIM Trichy has placed arts and medicine students on the same level for criteria application. Prof Gopal is quick to reason out . “When firms in US state that they are equal opportunity employers, they are also talking about forced diversity. If you are going out of your way to get a certain set of people, you are in a way forcing the set of people.”

    With regards to faculty too, IIM Trichy is one of the firsts. It is probably the only new IIM that has started with a faculty strength of 10, expected to go to 14 in the next 2 months. And that is the reason IIM Trichy professors think that so many students applied. “Faculty was probably the main reason why we took the initiative to increasing the students numbers. Ten faculty is a good enough number to start with, be it 60 students or 84,” answers Prof Gopal.

    I still relish the nostalgia and sweet memories when ever I hear or read about Festember.

    It brought out the best organising skills from us and I had my first fruitful business venture during Festember 1983.

  • Kannan sir can you please give us some rare details and memorable ones from your NITT days?

    How many are there in SSC I who are currently studying in NITT ?

    Akash passed out in 2010.

    I can write volumes on REC T life but this may not be the ideal forum.

    I should mention our Princi PSMS (Mani Sundaram). He has a phenomenal memory even today at this old age. He allowed us free run and except the unfortunate Chem guys in 3-5th year (I am one), we hardly attended classes. But he would encourage us to organise / take part in all competitions / seminars and festivals (which were rare those days). We loved our Library & Audi - behind Electrical Dept (where we see latest & old movies every Saturday & Sunday)

    I put up the food stall in partnership with my classmates during Festember 1983 and made good money (My first venture). We secretly sold Beer & liquor also at a premium.:lol:

    Training & Placement Dept also was a fab one. We would invite the best companies for campus interviews personally, through contacts, thro the influence of parents & PSMS. As most companies those days would never venture beyond Chennai, we would book them Air tkts, Train tkts, transport, good accommodation in the Guest House / Sangam and nice food also. We would arrange trips for company officials to Tanjore, Chidambaram, Srirangam, Mukkombu etc during week end.

    I was in charge during Jan - Apr 1984 and we got placement 168 out of 206 which was a record. This was more than IIT, Madras and CEG, Guindy for that year.

    We had 9 messes and we used to decide the menu every month. The quality of food was fab and nutritious also. We can also migrate among messes. My first year mess bill (1979-80) was INR 64 per month (Avg) for BFast, Lunch & Dinner with 2 times Tea. All unlimited. We also had Eggs for BFast. In my final year (83-84), the mess bill was INR 250 to 300 (Avg) per month but it included Coupons for Juices, snacks at Shopping Centre and also Haircut (only college where you could pay thro mess bill :lol:).

    Enough for now.

  • ^^I had some memorable moments in NIT-T during 1996 Festember. When I studied in SASTRA (Shanmuga College of Engineering), I just participated in Festember and stayed in NIT-T hostel for three days(in one of my NIT friend room). In mid night most of the hostel boys (more than 50 guys) gathered and started viewing XXX movie in TV/Video cassette along with warden in hostel corridor.All of us watched lot f Video cassette continuously till early morning. Three days I spent like this in NIT hostel.


    Interestingly SASTRA got overall championship for the consecutive third year and JIPMER got second place . :)

  • How many are there in SSC I who are currently studying in NITT ?

    Akash passed out in 2010.

    I can write volumes on REC T life but this may not be the ideal forum.

    I should mention our Princi PSMS (Mani Sundaram). He has a phenomenal memory even today at this old age. He allowed us free run and except the unfortunate Chem guys in 3-5th year (I am one), we hardly attended classes. But he would encourage us to organise / take part in all competitions / seminars and festivals (which were rare those days). We loved our Library & Audi - behind Electrical Dept (where we see latest & old movies every Saturday & Sunday)

    I put up the food stall in partnership with my classmates during Festember 1983 and made good money (My first venture). We secretly sold Beer & liquor also at a premium.:lol:

    Training & Placement Dept also was a fab one. We would invite the best companies for campus interviews personally, through contacts, thro the influence of parents & PSMS. As most companies those days would never venture beyond Chennai, we would book them Air tkts, Train tkts, transport, good accommodation in the Guest House / Sangam and nice food also. We would arrange trips for company officials to Tanjore, Chidambaram, Srirangam, Mukkombu etc during week end.

    I was in charge during Jan - Apr 1984 and we got placement 168 out of 206 which was a record. This was more than IIT, Madras and CEG, Guindy for that year.

    We had 9 messes and we used to decide the menu every month. The quality of food was fab and nutritious also. We can also migrate among messes. My first year mess bill (1979-80) was INR 64 per month (Avg) for BFast, Lunch & Dinner with 2 times Tea. All unlimited. We also had Eggs for BFast.

  • So were the Restrooms busy all the time :lol:. That too for 3 days :nuts:

    Most of us had our first exposure with BF (XXX) in First year only. It was 16 mm film projection then. Then VCP took over. We used to invite our friends from St Josephs, Jamal etc and some times Tanjore Medical also for special screenings.

    We had a huge room size IBM computer (1010, if I remember right) in ECE Dept (Admin Block). Even to feed a simple command, we have to use punch cards and feed it in. BHEL computer was a little advanced version but still punch cards based.

    I am told that NIT T does not have Wi Fi in hostel rooms even now. Is it true ? Through RECAL (REC Alumni), we also received complaints that Food is pathetic (Sangeetha ??) in the Mega Mess.

  • The Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Trichy at Thuvakudi, is a good 25 kilometres away from Trichy city, on a non-traffic day. Located on the main Thanjavore road, the only way to get there is by auto and auto drivers love haggling with the price. “Only 1000 rupees both ways and no charge for waiting. Illai (no) waiting money,” they say in broken English, knowing well that nobody makes a one-way trip to Trichy in the middle of the academic year.

    And waiting you have to do at IIM Trichy, whether to just breathe in some fresh air or simply look around. Bang in the centre of the National Institute of Technology (NIT) campus, the IIM structure is enveloped in kilometres of greenery and winding roads that never seem to end. The main structure (which was originally) the NIT’s library is nothing to shout about architecture-wise but it exudes an unexplained warmth.


    A lady (who possibly holds an important position in the administration department) is the default receptionist at IIM Trichy, since her cubicle is the closest to the entrance. Yet, she displays utmost patience while answering the proverbial question: “I have come to meet …..” Her reply is a courteous: “Please be seated. I will call the concerned person.” The Placements Office, where I am asked to sit on the ground floor is tastefully furnished, with the AC full blast but there is constant sound of furniture-in-the-making in the rooms next door. On walking in, Dr Godwin Tennyson, Assistant Professor and Chairperson, Placement and External Relations at IIM Trichy explains. “We have most of the infrastructure done in the building but we are continuously adding to whatever we have, which means more classrooms, better facilities.”

    A tour of the classes on the first floor leads to spacious classrooms on one side and yet-to-built classrooms on the other, currently stacked with wooden planks and plastic chairs. The faculty rooms resemble an old-world charm, lined on opposite sides of a small corridor and doors directly facing each other.

    Almost done and ready to go

    Dr Tennyson informs that IIM Trichy is possibly the only new IIM that had everything done and ready before the course started. “Our director was sure that before we started, we had to keep faculty and class rooms ready.” Unlike other newer IIMs and many other b-schools, IIM Trichy started with a permanent faculty strength of 10 which will go to 12 next month.

    IIM Trichy’s director Dr Praful Agnohotri had spoken exclusively to Pagalguy in December 2010 and then http://www.pagalguy.com/2010/12/the-new-iims-will-create-a-brand-of-their-own-says-iim-trichy-director assured that he would get at least 10 permanent faculty before he started the campus, a promise he kept.

    Prof V Gopal, Dean Academics and Professor, Finance and Accounting, who joined our meeting in the Placement Room, said that a PhD degree from a reputed place is a big must to get in as faculty at IIM Trichy. “We did not want to be a school that just picked faculty from different places because we had to start the term. We also did not want visiting faculty to take care of our core work.” All members of the faculty at IIM Trichy have worked either in the US and Europe and other IIMs and Indian Institutes of Technology.

    Background of students at IIM Trichy

    http://cdn1.pagalguy.net/s/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/chart_13.png

    Even infrastructure was ready

    Not only the faculty, but IIM Trichy was offered to students with full infrastructure in place. Be it classrooms, the gym, hostels, tennis, badminton and volleyball courts, swimming pool and canteens – all of which once belonged exclusively to NIT. Head of NIT, Trichy, Dr N Thamaraiselvan told PaGaLGuY that NIT willingly offered all its services to IIM Trichy. “Our resources are shared and students of both the schools happily co-exist here.”

    In fact it is because the infrastructure was in place and the faculty that IIM Trichy was forced to up its intake from the sanctioned 60 students to 84. http://www.pagalguy.com/2011/09/why-iim-trichy-overshot-its-target-of-60-students. It is also believed that a huge group of students who had also applied to other IIMs up north, chose Trichy because of these two factors. Confirmed a student, Shishir Bhat: “I think we all got calls from different IIMs but we chose Trichy because we realised everything was done here. To have 10 permanent faculty is something to be proud of.”

    Divya Manyala, another student, added that the infrastructure also served as a magnet to draw in students. “To come into the campus and see that every facility is waiting helps a great deal.”


    Some more on infrastructure

    The hostels were there and up for grabs when the students came in. All students have a room each, though they share the buildings with NIT students. Divya added that for the women, it is a two-bedroom room and nothing short of luxury. “Imagine for one person to stay in a two-bedroom apartment. The rooms are huge and it’s a beautiful feeling.” The hostels are just behind the main building, so when lectures start at 8.30 am in the morning (generally till 1.30pm), it’s only a hop, skip and a jump to class.

    The canteens serve some of the best food, say students. Divya adds that while her canteen serves the best parathas and north-Indian food, the boys say that their cooks cannot be beaten when it come to South Indian fare. Besides, there are plenty other places to snack the whole day.

    Arun Raghuraman and Rohan Shinde swear by ‘Snacky’, a cozy fast-food joint in the campus, which is surrounded by trees on all sides. It serves everything from fried rice to Bombay bhel and the portions are quite big too. Mohan Ganesan states that that dhabbas lined outside the campus, which are open till early morning also serve authentic Punjabi food. For IIM Trichy parties, there are restaurants like Banana Leaf and Hotel Breeze in Trichy city, which are patronised.


    Work-experience profile of students at IIM Trichy

    http://cdn1.pagalguy.net/s/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/chart_2.png

    We are the first

    Along with the infrastructure and faculty, the fact that students get to do everything for the first time is a big thrill at IIM Trichy. Says Divya: “We are setting up everything for the very first time. We are deciding what clubs need to be started and what activities need to be worked on. Shishir say that it is a matter of prestige that whatever the first batch of IIM Trichy does will be continued for generations together. “It gives a good high,” he said. Though students are also working on getting their website rolling and exciting, the fact that NIT hosts it, slows them down a bit.

    Gearing for placements

    IIM Trichy is gearing for its first round of placements. The director who is presently in France, (on an invitation by the French government to seek tie-ups and exchange students) has already began working with his faculty members on placements. Dr Tennyson says that companies have been approached and the season seems well-set. When asked if he expects trouble, given that the International Monetary Fund (IMF) recently announced that the world may be hit by another recessionary phase, Dr Tennyson says India has a huge buffer and such effects are not felt directly. But then Trichy is not a big city and not superbly connected to the rest of the country – will that not act as a deterrent? “No” said, Prof Gopal. “There are two flights to Trichy everyday and it is well-connected by rail. For those who do have a problem getting here, video conferencing is always there.”

    Just for the record, when this correspondent was in Trichy, some flights to and fro were postponed way beyond 12 hours.

    Trichy known for education and religion

    Trichy, has been traditionally known as an educational town because many of its schools and colleges are more than a 100 years old. Former Indian president Dr APJ Kalam, and writer Sujatha Rengarajan studied at St. Joseph’s College in Trichy while another former president R. Venkataraman studied at the National College, also in Trichy. The other thing that Trichy is known for is its temples. The famous one being Rock Fort Temple which is located on top of a massive rock and built into the rock. It can be reached by a steep flight of 437 steps cut into the rock. Rock Fort is where IIM Trichy students often go just for a change of pace.

    More dreams

    There are some more milestones to achieve, says faculty of IIM Trichy till they can say surely that they have a perfect place going. “We want to be truly global in our approach so that we attract the best of faculty and students,” says Prof Gopal. The Accounting professor shared that while on a recent academic trip abroad, he was made to realise that “Indians in general, who know English tend to speak it very fast, at least more fast compared to other Asian countries. I took that as a lesson and now tend to be slower and more clear when I speak, which helps the students.”

    IIM Trichy also wants to start a Fellowship Programme soon, not to mention a couple of other courses lined up – like some short-term and tailor made course addressing the needs of Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in Tier 2 towns. About 15 multi-national companies and large industrial houses have already come forward to collaborate with IIM Trichy.

    And despite having such a perfect start to its year, and being treated graciously by NIT, IIM Trichy has decided to move into its own campus in the near future. Work is expected to start on 172 acres of land between Bharathidasan University and Anna University of Technology, on the Trichy-Pudukottai highway, 17 km south-east of the city centre and 12 km from Tiruchirappalli International Airport. It will be at least 2-3 years before the new campus starts functioning. Which means the first batch of students will probably not be around to experience the new place. “But that’s okay,” says Shishir. “We will always be remembered because we will have set the pace and direction for the future batches. What will change will just be the outer building. The ethos and culture will be ours.”

    To protect India from hostile attacks, the country needs to develop an effective counter defence system, said V.K.Saraswat, Director General, DRDO and Scientific Adviser to Defence Minister and Secretary, DR and DS. Delivering the convocation address at National Institute of Technology – Tiruchi (NIT-T) here on Saturday.

    Dr.Saraswat said that science and technology played a very important role in ensuring a nation's security. Dr.Saraswat said that technologies such as aviation, hypersonic flight vehicle, missiles, and space and cyber security posed challenges and appealed to budding engineers to come up with solutions. He pointed out that in future, unmanned aircrafts operating in hypersonic speed are a possibility and this requires technologies like hypersonic aerodynamics, adaptive structures, and active RCS control,” he said. Future missiles should be accurate with high precision. Explaining the multiple independently targeted re- entry vehicles (MIRV) technology, he said that re-entry vehicles posed many technological challenges.

    “To protect ourselves from hostile attacks, the country needs to develop an effective counter defence system. This would include defence against ballistic missiles and space-based assets. We should evolve advanced sensors located at land, sea or space, advanced algorithms for prediction of flight path and finalising the engagement scenario,” he said. Dr.Saraswat said in future more countries would utilise space for military operations.

    “Major threat to space security is increasing orbital debris, which could increase the possibility of spacecraft collisions,” he said. India needs to consider the impact of space conflict on terrestrial communication, surveillance and intelligence systems. To counter this, we need to develop electronic counter measures and develop technologies for space security. On the possible cyber warfare in future, he said that the weapons would be built with information denial and information espionage technology by using hackers, worms, and viruses.

    S.Sundarrajan, Director, NIT- T, said that a total of 1,244 students received the degrees. This includes 54 candidates who received Ph.D. He also read out a report on the achievements of NIT-T during 2010-11. Rajaram Nityananda, Chairman, Board of Governors, NIT-T, said NIT-T has set a goal to enter the ‘Top 5' technical institutions in the country within five years. It has proposed to set up centres of excellence in leading areas including energy, corrosion, electronic packaging for bringing about a collaborative approach.

    Extension activities of Bharathidasan University's Department of Social Work will focus on many issues including school drop-outs, child labour, AIDS, alcoholism, drug addiction and women empowerment in villages.

    The university recognises the need for linking activities of departments related to social sciences, Vice-Chancellor K. Meena said recently after releasing books titled ‘Social Development in India: New Visas and Challenges' and ‘Social Development in India: Retrospect and Prospects' edited by R. Mangaleswaran, Assistant Professor, Department of Social Work.

    The Child Guidance Centre attached to the department is likely to receive the attention of the university, she said, presiding over a function organised for the book release.

    K. Balamurugan, Regional Passport Officer, who received the first copy in the presence of the Head of the Department P. Ilango, emphasised on commitment from student community to social values in the interest of mankind. Calling for social transformation, he felt that those going abroad for careers must not forget their origin, and route funds for betterment of society and eradication of poverty.

    The books are envisaged to serve as ready reckoners for evolving developmental policies, and for NGOs, besides meeting requirements of professionals working for the society, research scholars and post graduate students of various social science disciplines.

  • Electrical energy extracted from water irrigating paddy fields, an eco-friendly bike that cuts down pollution and a cow dung coated clay pyramid that doubles up as a granary- ideas employing simple scientific principles like electrolysis, dynamo and structural design creatively.

    Spiralling fuel prices, polluted cities, depleting energy sources and restriction of subsidised LPG cylinders- all contemporary issues were given creative scientific solutions by prospective young scientists at the district leg of the national level INSPIRE awards exhibition here on Saturday.

    Ideas floated around with more than 600 projects by an equal number of students at the Bishop Heber Higher Secondary School were on display here. Though a number of working and static models replicated textbook concepts, a few testified to the ingenuity of students in applying basic scientific principles.

    The INSPIRE (Innovation in Science Pursuit for Research Excellence) awards instituted by the Department of Science and Technology, Government of India as an early attraction of talent scheme hopes to cultivate a scientific research temperament among students. Around 15,000 students in Tamil Nadu from Class VI upwards have been identified for 2010-2011, based on consistency of academic performance and aptitude for science . The award grants students Rs. 5,000 for producing innovative scientific projects.

    That the younger generation is actively engaged with current issues by seeking solutions for problems rather than discussing them was evident from projects displayed. Energy was the watchword from models postulating the idea of solar powered villages to tapping power from volcanoes and vegetable waste.

    According to Education Department sources, 35 projects from Tiruchi district have qualified for the state level competition based on innovation, presentation and utility, among other factors. T.M. Alagiri Samy, Project Director, Anna Science Centre and Planetarium, the nodal agency for implementing the project, told The Hindu that though a few projects demonstrated resourcefulness of the students, novelty in application was wanting for an exhibition of this stature. Teachers would be given guidelines in encouraging innovative concepts next year, he said.

    Harish, a student from a city school said the awards had helped him think beyond the textbook. “Though I am interested in science, the competition inspired me to brainstorm for new ideas”. Daisy Rani, a teacher from a government school in Thoppampatti said, “Teachers moot ideas and assist the students, though they are encouraged to finish the projects on their own. For students from rural schools, the exhibition is a great opportunity to engage deeply with science. It is highly motivating for these students to see projects prepared by students of their age from different schools.”

Others among the eighteen participants represented nine countries, including Malaysia, Pakistan, Philippines, Sri Lanka and Thailand.

    The business excellence framework (quality award initiatives) based on Malcolm Baldridge business excellence framework of USA spread over seven criteria: leadership; strategic planning;; customer and market focus; measurement, analysis and knowledge management; human resource; process management; and business results, provides a holistic standard covering all critical factors, processes and results for business results in an organisation.

    Innovation

    Business excellence initiatives help organisations to assess and improve their performance against the requirements of an internationally benchmarked business excellence framework. Business excellence is a journey. Initiatives provide a roadmap for companies for continuous improvement and innovation, according to Dr.Muruganantham.

    In a special lecture he delivered at Singapore on ‘Quality Practices in India', he emphasised on the immense scope for Indian companies to apply for various international quality awards such as the prestigious Deming quality award from Japan that provide better visibility, more business and higher profits to the company.

    Alongside enhancing image, the award will command respect among stakeholders, and, if marketed strategically, will act as a differentiator for competitive advantage.

    Dr.Muruganantham, who handles Business excellence frameworks in Total Quality Management for MBA students at NIT-T, also took part in the third Business Excellence Global conference and 17 {+t} {+h} Asia Pacific Quality conference at Singapore.

  • # It is to be built on 15.96-acre land on Pudukottai highway.
    # No timeframe fixed for moving to the new campus
    # BIM in comfortable position to raise loan

    Bharathidasan Institute of Management (BIM), a School of Excellence of Bharathidasan University, has bought its own land to build a new campus.

    The land measuring 15.96 acres is located on the Tiruchi-Pudukottai highway at a distance of six km from the university and 20 km from Tiruchi railway junction. Incidentally, the site for the new campus of BIM, which has been rated in numerous surveys as one of the top business schools in India, will be only a few km away from the site for permanent campus of Indian Institute of Management-Tiruchi (IIM-T).

    The university had earlier expressed readiness to provide 12 acres of land in its Khajamalai campus to shift the BIM from its temporary campus on the premises of BHEL, Tiruchi. However, it did not fructify.

    Since admissions to BIM is a strictly regulated process, owing to its national-level ranking, the university recently decided to have its own MBA department for admitting aspiring candidates in its jurisdictional area.

    The idea for BIM was born during August 1984 when the first Vice-Chancellor of Bharathidasan University P.S. Mani Sundaram and C. Subramanian chaired a meeting of leading academicians and industrialists. Their dream to create an academy grounded in strong theoretical inputs, have proactive partnership with a large organisation, and provide students with a real world learning environment took shape. The BIM enjoys the distinction of being the country's first management institute housed inside an industrial giant.

    The BIM has, as such, not fixed any timeframe for moving to the new campus though the building plans are reportedly being readied. BIM's decision to have its own buildings not only fulfils the expectations of the All India Council for Technical Education, but also augurs well with the BHEL's massive expansion plans. The BIM is in a comfortable financial position to raise a bank loan for creating the permanent facility. The symbiotic relationship with BHEL will continue to be nurtured, informed sources said.

  • The Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) has launched a new programme, Farmers' First, with the objective of finding solutions to the problems faced by farming community through research, said S.Ayyappan, Secretary, Department of Agriculture Research and Extension and Director General of Indian Council of Agricultural Research, here recently.

    Speaking after inaugurating a new administrative building of the National Research Centre for Banana, located at Podavur near Tiruchi, Dr.Ayyappan said funds for the research projects would be provided through a special fund.

    The funds will amount to about 3 per cent of the total outlay of the each agricultural research institute in the country.

    Emphasis will also be on secondary agriculture involving processing, storage, promotion of business incubators and value addition of agricultural produce.

    Dr.Ayyappan advised scientists to go for patenting of technologies developed by the research institutes. The ICAR has identified 27 research platforms covering agriculture, horticulture, animal husbandry, fisheries and allied sectors as the focus areas during the 12 {+t} {+h} Five Year Plan, he said.

    He also visited the NRCB research farm and reviewed the ongoing projects of the institute and advised the scientists to work on a consortia mode to find solutions to farmer's problems.

    Dr. Ayyappan also appreciated the technologies developed at NRC for the benefit of the farmers and also the research infrastructure to solve the problems of the banana farmers. M.M.Mustafa, Director, NRCB, and other scientists were present.

  • A support system for quality infusion put in place in the recent months by Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL), Tiruchi, for the Industrial Training Institute (ITI), Tiruverumbur, has been formalised by the State government.

    The institute has received an official communication approving the nomination of P. Nainar, General Manager-Human Resource, BHEL, Tiruchi, as Chairman of the Institute Management Committee (IMC), a post held so far by the Managing Director of G.B. Engineering Enterprises, official sources said.

    Under the Centre of Excellence scheme of the Central and State governments, the training facilities at the ITI were strengthened with machinery worth Rs. 3 crore over the years.

    Hence, it could not be brought under the ambit of the Central government's subsequent proposal for Private-Public Partnership whereby industrial houses are entrusted with the task of upgrading Industrial Training Centres to international standards with an interest-free loan of Rs. 2.5 crore.

    Nevertheless, utilising the advantage of proximity, the BHEL, as part of its CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) activities, is keen on providing a further fillip to the ITI by making available surplus machinery, organising training programme for the faculty, and starting new courses, Mr. Nainar said.

    “BHEL's Tiruchi unit has already spent Rs. 10 lakh for construction of toilets in the ITI and has a plan to spend a similar amount for raising a compound wall,” said Mr. Nainar.

    Expressing happiness over the BHEL's support, the Deputy Director of the Institute, T. John Bosco, said that the institute's physical outlook is also poised for a change as the State government has sanctioned Rs. 1.5 crore for carrying out maintenance works. Approach road, renovation of the workshop area, and painting and repair works for the buildings and hostels would be undertaken with the fund, he said.

  • Entrepreneurship is the key to nation's development and young business management graduates should strive hard for the socio-economic growth of our country by starting micro and macro industries, observed Prafulla Y. Agnihotri, Director, Indian Institute of Management, Tiruchi.

    Delivering the valedictory address of the three-day management development programme on 'Entrepreneurial avenues in MSMEs' organised jointly by the Hallmark School of Business and the Gandhigram Rural Institute Deemed University here on Friday, he said that India needed a large number of entrepreneurs. In this context, he explained the scope for entrepreneurship with the advent of various sectors, including insurance and other services.

    Pointing out that the scope for employment opportunities abroad for young management students was brighter, he advised them to contribute their might for the growth of our country.

    "You can gain some experience in foreign countries and utilise it for the growth of our country," he said .

    Referring to a plea by R. Krishnamurthy, chairman of the Hallmark Business School, he said the IIM would extend all possible assistance for the development of the business schools in this part of the region.

    "We would also start an incubator in course of time and extend needed support to your entrepreneurship proposals," he said.

  • It was essential for students to look beyond engineering and medicine to explore opportunities in different disciplines in higher education, observed speakers at a session on Career Planning organised by the Confederation of Indian Industry here on Friday.

    Identify your aptitude early and shun herd mentality, E.Balagurusamy, Member (Education), State Planning Commission, told the large contingent of Plus Two students from various schools in the city. “The country needs to generate more blue-collared rather than white-collared jobs. The objective of education should be to produce good human beings rather than coach a student to score centum. There was no point in producing engineers who cannot apply their knowledge in day- to-day life,” he observed. The country, as an economic superpower, was full of opportunities. It requires a large number technically skilled manpower for sustainable development. The manufacturing sectors should be the pivot of development. In the next five years, the country would require about 10 lakh teachers and it was also facing a huge shortage of scientists. No country could progress without scientists.

    Putting forward a 10-point mantra for holistic development for the students, Mr.Balagurusamy urged the students to develop competence, courage and character to succeed in their chosen discipline. G. Balakrishnan, former vice principal, St.Joseph's College, called upon the students to draw up their higher education plans on a five-year time frame.

  • It was the turn of a millionaire to remember his alma mater. Founder chairman of HCL Technologies and one of the richest men in the country, Shiv Nadar, pledged to enhance the technology quotient of students of his alma mater after discovering only 35 computers were available for 3,500 students at St.Joseph's College Higher Secondary School.

    During his visit to his school in February, Mr. Nadar , the 15th richest man in Forbes list of the country's wealthiest, announced that HCL would sponsor around 350 computers to the school. A renovated computer lab with 100 computers connected to a server, replete with and air-conditioning and furniture fittings was opened to use for students on Monday. The rest of the computers would be fitted in instalments, as the school does not have adequate space to accommodate 350 computers, said Jaimi Joseph, Regional Director, HCL. A language lab furnished with audio- visual facilities, video projection, and interactive electronic white board, under construction is also being sponsored by HCL.

    Laptops at concessional rates for faculty in schools under the aegis of the Society of Jesus, have also been offered by the company, said Hussain, president, Old Boys Association. The HCL team that furnished the computer lab handed it over to Principal Kulandairaja here.

  • A comparative analysis on the status of women in India and UK revealed several similarities, during a workshop organised by the Department of Women's Studies, Bharathidasan University, Tiruchi, recently.

    The day-long workshop on ‘Gender and Development in India and UK a comparative analysis' was addressed by Bhupendra Mistry, director, Kamla Foundation, London and Peter Strokers, an UK-based development consultant.

    Bhupendra Mistry, of Gujarati origin, felt support system in India was not adequate for marginalized and less privileged sections, including adolescent girls and women, to realize their potential.

    On status of women, he said, there were challenges in UK also since Asian women, mostly from Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Punjab, despite migrating to UK decades ago, felt alienated from the culture. Due to inadequacy of their education, majority of women were serving in menial jobs for meagre payment. They neither speak English nor take efforts to learn it. Female feticide was prevalent among Muslims.

    There were, however, measures in place to safeguard women at disadvantage due to factors like disability, race, ethnicity and polity. Women now occupied important posts in judiciary, public life, and politics. A recent happening of significance was election of the first Muslim woman MP. There were now 50 women MPs for the 650 Parliamentary seats, he said.

    The legislation is strong in protecting the interest of women, and protecting them from crimes and harassment. Suitable legislations have enabled men to encourage women to go for work, share the household duties, and avail fraternity leave. Such developments reduce gender discrimination, he said.

    Peter Stokers, development consultant in the social sector, observed that though women were reluctant to speak in public and do not get high-paying jobs, they were becoming financially independent in Britain. While girls were brilliant, their academic ability does not get translated into employment and decision-making. Immigrant groups marry off girls at a young age.

    The educated section, he said, could influence values to integrate and mainstream conservative thinking of marginalized communities, particularly Pakistanis and Bangladeshis, in UK. Immigrants from India and China perform well in education and employment.

    The resource persons interacted with students and scholars of gender studies, and exhorted them to serve as agents of social change. There have been some changes, but women need to be more assertive to be secured of empowerment, they felt. The resource persons were surprised to know that illiterate women rather than the educated ones were keen on encouraging their daughters to pursue higher education and take up jobs.

    N.Manimekalai, Director, Department of Women's Studies, Bharathidasan University, said that women's education has positively contributed to reducing maternity mortality rate and infant mortality rate.

  • Several scientific concepts that are used in daily life were demonstrated here on Monday at the Anna Science Centre- Planetarium-but with the help of just hands, a plain sheet of paper and a visiting card.

    Simplicity combined with practical experimentation was the essence of the interaction between the city' high school students and Anil Manekar, Director, Nehru Science Centre, Mumbai.

    Organised to commemorate the declaration of 2011 as the International Year of Chemistry, the interactive session was aimed at dispelling the inherent fear and hatred of science common among school students today.

    “In today's educational system, the curriculum is such that it hardly provides the students with the opportunity to actually perform experiments. Scientific concepts, learnt solely from the point of an examination, fail to make students aware of their practical applications,” said Mr. Manekar while speaking to presspersons. “The educational system needs to be revamped to make way for more practice-oriented teaching methodology.

    Schools and colleges teaching science should inculcate research as a process within their students.”

    Talking about why practical's in science has been limited to the bare minimum in educational institutions, T.M. Alagiri Swamy Raju, Project Director, Anna Science Centre- Planetarium said, “The instruments and materials required by many experiments in science (especially chemistry) are not a one-time investment. The need to replace them periodically and the recurring expenditure involved seems to have deterred many institutions from taking it up seriously.”

    During his interaction with the students, Mr. Manekar stressed on the need to be constantly curious in science.

    “Science is nothing but our ever evolving understanding of nature. Therefore no one can sit back and relax saying all that there is to be invented has already been he said.

    He engaged the students with interesting anecdotes about eminent scientists like Sir C.V. Raman, Thomas Alva Edison and Wright Brothers.

    Using no real equipments or instruments he demonstrated the concepts that work within refrigerators and air conditioners, the human body's reaction time and reflex actions, and friction.

  • Indian Institute of Management-Tiruchy (IIM-T), is planning to construct a new campus at a cost of Rs 200 crore.

    Speaking to Express, sources said the IIM-T, which was temporarily functioning in the National Institute of Technology-Tiruchy (NITT) campus, would move to its new campus by 2014. The new campus is built in a 192.35 acre site, which lies between the Bharathidasan University and the Anna University of Technology-Tiruchy[AUTT].

    Fearing encroachment, the institute has started constructing a compound wall. As the architectural plans proposed by anyone has to pass through four levels filtration for the board of directors to narrow down to one, the process would consume some time, but once they finalize the plan, everything will be completed soon.

    Speaking about the other initiatives, sources said IIM-T was focusing much on the academic activities, as there was a heavy competition between the six new IIMs, that includes IIM-Tiruchy, IIM-Raipur, IIM-Ranchi, IIM-Rothak, IIM-Kashipur and IIM-Udhaipur which were started in months gap. Sources also claimed that the IIM-T was performing better than the other new IIMs by means of faculty ratio, students performance and the like.

    Of the 84 students (the total strength) 50 plus students have already got their placement for the summer internship programme which would begin by April, sources said.

    Few students have got the opportunity to take up internship in the some of the overseas companies. After completing the internship of two and a half months, all the students would return to the campus to continue with their regular classes.

    There are another 50 percent companies that would come for the summer internship placements and the whole process would be concluded by the end of this year. Such good response for a new IIM-T is something unusual, sources added.

  • Bharathidasan Institute of Management (BIM) intends to move to its own campus along the Tiruchi-Pudukottai Highway, about 20 kilometres away from Tiruchi Railway Junction, by 2014.

    Earlier this year, the BIM, which has been functioning since its start in 1984 on the premises of Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL), bought about 16 acres for having a full-fledged campus for its students.

    Buildings and other facilities will be created at a cost of over Rs. 50 crore, according to official sources. Finances will be raised and the Institute will simultaneously take initiatives to enhance its revenues.

    While the intake capacity – 120 students per annum – will be retained, the Institute will explore avenues for starting need-based short-term programmes.

    Executive MBA course

    An Executive MBA programme was likely, sources said. Since BIM's relationship with BHEL is touted as its strength, the Institute will continue to maintain the ties by devising tailor-made programmes for BHEL executives, it is learnt.

    A School of Excellence of Bharathidasan University, the BIM enjoys autonomy, on the administrative and financial fronts. Its All India admission is based on CAT scores.

    Applications

    The BIM started issuing applications for its MBA Admissions 2012-2014 at the start of December. Applications are to be issued till January 30, 2012. As the BIM has been ranked in several surveys as being among the top-notch business schools in the country, the decision to have own campus augurs well with the reputation it enjoys, former students opined.

    Since the Institute pays substantial amount as rent, utilising it for debt-servicing to repay loans for creating permanent infrastructure does make sound business sense, they felt.

    Also, faculties see scope for synergy in the location of the new campus close to the permanent campus of Indian Institute of Management – Tiruchi. Incidentally, the BHEL, which is on a growth spree, will require the area now occupied by the BIM, for its future expansion.

    India's diversity and the resultant vast genetic pool calls for more researchers to study its unique genetic mutations and arrive at an understanding of causes, diagnosis and management of various hereditary disorders.

    Though genetic disorders are not completely curable, identifying the genetic base for infertility, neurological and cardiovascular diseases can improve quality of life, said K.Thangaraj, president, Indian Society Human Genetics (ISHG), delivering the inaugural address at the three day international conference on Medical Genetics and Genomics organised by the department of biomedical science of Bharathidasan University on Monday.

    Though India could not participate in large scale international projects undertaken to enhance study of human genetic makeup like the Human Genome Project and Thousand Genome Project, on account of various reasons, there is a great demand and need to study Indian genetic pool due to number of variations and demographic specific genetic disorders peculiar to India such as the madras motor neuron disease. The current human diversity project by the society studied more than 20,000 individuals from over 400 population groups.

    Changes are in store for medical practice of the future with the evolution of genetics, said, P.M.Gopinath, senior scientist, Manipal University.

    Personalised medicine is all set to become the order of the day with genetic predisposition of diseases gaining importance. The study of genetics has come a long way from finding the exact number of chromosomes to characterising inheritable diseases. Lene Juel Rasmussen, director, Centre for Healthy Aging, University of Copenhagen, Denmark, in her special address, said it was pertinent to determine if all genetic variations are pathogenic and capable of triggering diseases. Increased funding and bringing in knowledge of basic biology was essential for expanding research. Citing the problem of obesity in youth in Denmark, she highlighted need to focus on molecular biology in medicine.

    Releasing the conference souvenir, K.Meena, Vice-Chancellor, Bharathidasan University, said employing information technology was important to store genetic data. She also expressed a desire to collaborate with foreign universities to promote interest in the field. The Vice-Chancellor has appealed to students, research scholars and faculty of affiliated colleges to aid more students by donating to the Vice-Chancellor's book bank scheme.

    K.Premkumar, organising secretary, S.Narkunaraja, Head, department of biomedical science and Sashidhar Mulugu, associate professor, spoke.

    At the start of this calendar year, the school education department initiated compilation of exhaustive data in 53 areas for Secondary Education Management Information System (SEMIS) based on which the Central Government sanctioned schools. Based on distance matrix, the Centre has sanctioned a high school for every three kilometres. Under RMSA (Universalisation of Secondary Education), a sum of Rs. 58 lakh is sanctioned for creating full-fledged infrastructure in each new high school, according to K. Selvakumar, Chief Educational Officer, Tiruchi. There are provisions for providing toilets for disabled, rest room for boys and girls, and auditorium, besides adequate classrooms and laboratories.

    BVM Global, which manages three schools in Chennai, including the 55-year-old Bala Vidya Mandir school, and one each in Coimbatore and Bangalore, will now also manage the Alpha Wisdom Vidyashram, an existing co-educational CBSE school in Tiruchi.

    The Tiruchi school, which will also take on the BVM Global name, has 3,000 students studying in the CBSE stream.

    BVM Global in a statement said that parents on transfer either from Tiruchi or from the other cities now have a network of schools to move their children.

    The Alpha group of schools said that joining hands with BVM Global will help enhance the educational experience of its students.

    Alpha Wisdom Vidyashram, a CBSE school at K.K.Nagar would go by the name BVM Global Alpha Wisdom Vidyashram from the current academic year, following collaboration between the Tiruchi-based school and Bala Vidya Mandir, Chennai.

    The coming together of the two schools was aimed at providing students here a high level of proficiency present in Chennai schools, said R.Palani, Chairman, Alpha Group of schools, addressing media persons here on Sunday. BVM would take over the administration, admission and training of teachers henceforth.

    Though changes are in store, practices such as no uniforms and no homework for students up to Class V, absence of a rigid academic framework and international debating would benefit the 3,000 students enrolled, said A.S.Ramana Prasad, managing trustee of BVM Global. With BVM schools functioning in Chennai, Coimbatore and Bangalore, parents would find the transfer process seamless, as fees and teaching practices would be identical in all schools under the banner said S.S.Nathan, CEO of BVM Global. School authorities said the transition would not be onerous as both schools shared certain similar teaching methodologies like the enquiry based scientific learning. Mr.Palani said parents had welcomed the changes at the PTA meeting.

  • Co-scholastic activities are receiving as much importance as curricular content at secondary level, what with the Rashtriya Madhyamik Siksha Abhiyan (RMSA) opening up avenues for developing skills befitting aptitude of students through Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation.

    A five-day refresher training for about 120 arts teachers drawn from various schools that commenced on Monday at the St. John's Vestry Anglo Indian Higher Secondary School has been organised with this objective. The training programme will culminate with an arts exhibition depicting the art works of the participants, Chief Educational Officer K.Selvakumar said.

    Last week, a similar training programme was conducted for about 51 music teachers. Their participation was enthusiastic. There were also participants from the neighbouring district. Likewise, a programme was on the anvil for sports teachers, the CEO said.

    Development of skills under the aegis of Sarva Siksha Abhiyan is poised for a further fillip following the impending appointment of teachers for temporary posts in the village schools.

    The process of appointing teachers is likely to begin on December 26. In Tiruchi district, there are nearly 2,500 applicants for 573 temporary posts. The chosen teachers for tailoring, music, sports and arts will report for work by mid-January, Mr. Selvakumar said.

    Bharathidasan University is in the process of creating digital libraries in two of its constituent colleges: at the newly started one in Inamkulathur in Tiruchi district and the existing college in Perambalur district.

    In due course, the university intends to extend the facility that would pave way for students and faculties to access its extensive e-resources to the constituent colleges at Nannilam, Vedaranyam and Thiruthuraipoondi. The digital libraries are to be developed by uploading institutional documents, lecture notes, presentations, question banks, project reports, audio and video clippings and newsletters. Web link to the university library's e-content enables access to 8,000 online journals and 10,000 e-books of text and reference.

    The initiative to start digital libraries was in keeping with the emphasis of National Policy on Education 1986 on providing opportunities for teachers' professional and career growth in the higher education system, Vice Chancellor K.Meena said on Thursday after getting the digital library in the UGC-Academic Staff College in Khajamalai campus commissioned by V.Muthuchezhian, Vice Chancellor of Periyar University, Salem.

    The library, which now has a collection of 1,772 books covering various disciplines of higher education and research, will cater to training and research requirements of academic participants. Since its start in 1987, the ASC has conducted 238 academic programmes for nearly 9000 faculty, principals and administrators of colleges and universities. More books and multimedia equipment will be provided, Dr.Meena said.

    The UGC-BDU-ASC website launched on the occasion by Arjun Dev, Professor and Member, Indian Council for Historical Research, provides details on its various programmes, online application forms, its facilities and ASC publications. A separate website for ASC library links a range of open access scholarly resources and tutorials.

    Dr.Muthuchezhian said academic libraries have become catalysts in education and research, owing to the new channels for transmitting information, in conjunction with the curriculum. An educational system that makes education reachable to all beyond geographical barriers will pave way for emergence of new sources of information . Internet, he said, has brought dramatic changes to millions of people in terms of how they collect, organise, disseminate, and use information, he said, adding that library resources can easily be made reachable to many by digitising them and uploading the same on Local Area Network as web pages.

    T.Ramaswamy, Registrar, Bharathidasan University, said the university has been in the forefront in taking ICT-based learning to constituent colleges, as advocated by the UGC.

  • A majority among the 34 first batch of undergraduate students admitted into the Diploma in Factory Management programme of six-month duration offered by the National College in association with BHEL Small Industries' Association (BHELSIA) have found placement.

    BHELSIA units have absorbed over 20 students. Seven among the course participants were existing employees, and the rest intend to pursue higher studies, said Course Coordinator K. Kumar of the Department of Commerce. Depicting a vital dimension of industry-institution interaction, the course imparted to the students basic knowledge about office functions and management, expertise to handle efficient communication methods, exposure to use of computers in office management, knowledge of bank operations, and working conditions pertaining to health, safety and welfare measures in factories.

    The course, introduced through a memorandum of understanding, the course was intended to address the manpower shortage faced by member units of BHELSIA in the backdrop of BHEL's rising output and growth rate. Having emerged as hub for manufacture of power plant equipment in the country, industries in Tiruchi require trained technical and managerial manpower to meet the changing business environment. The BHELSIA has also teamed up with Bharathidasan University to offer Welding Instructor training to arts and science students in affiliated colleges from the coming academic year. With expertise drawn from Welding Research Institute of BHEL, Tiruchi, and Indian Welding Society, a total of 180 hours of training is to be imparted for students in second year and first semester of third year. By virtue of a similar understanding with Periyar Maniammai University at Vallam in Thanjavur district, BHELSIA could rope in rural youth, including 140 women, into industrial workforce as welders.

  • These days, Plus Two students of Government Higher Secondary School in rural Ettarai in the district are pursuing studies with new-found vigour.

    Learning answers for one and three-mark questions has become a pleasure for them after receiving free laptops under the State government's ambitious scheme to distribute the computing equipment to students.

    Under the scheme, a first-of-its-kind in the country, 68 lakh laptops are to be distributed, including the 9.12 lakh meant for distribution during this financial year.

    Free laptops will be distributed to the rest of the students in government schools, government-aided schools, arts and science colleges, engineering colleges and polytechnic colleges over a four-year period.

    In Tiruchi district, 1,055 Plus Two students, including the 161 belonging to Ettarai Government Higher Secondary School, have received the laptops with pre-loaded content, mostly textual matter in PDF format, besides dictionary and other useful inputs.

    “There is now a perceptible difference in the students' attitude towards learning; they exhibit more enthusiasm,” said R. Dandayuthapani, Headmaster, Ettarai Government HSS.

    “It is the level of interest students evince in the new learning approach that matters the most. Despite being rural students, they were quick to acclimatise themselves to the computing equipment. They are now at ease with the laptops, and use it just as they operate mobile phones,” he added.

    According to Education department officials, the laptops will be given to Plus Two students of nearly 70 government and Adi Dravida welfare higher secondary schools initially and subsequently to Plus One students.

    Students of government-aided schools are also to receive the laptops under the scheme.

    “Students now themselves ask for the one mark and three mark question-answers in the form of software content.

    They do not suffer from the usual fatigue they experience while studying from the text books.

    They learn the small answer questions with interest in the power-point format,” said M. Palanichamy, Physics teacher at the Ettarai Government HSS.

    The laptops, for instance, provided an opportunity for him to precisely explain the utility of electron microscope to the rural students.

    Teachers are happy with the enhanced ability of students to grasp the subject matter in animation modules, and are prepared to walk the extra mile by downloading relevant subject content from the Internet and passing on the same to the students. Their (teachers') desire is that the welcome change in the teaching-learning process must reflect amply in the scores students secure in the public examinations.

  • The irony of students from Tiruchi region, where the National Institute of Technology – Tiruchi (NIT-T) is situated, having to go elsewhere to take up the All India Engineering Entrance Examination (AIEEE) every year is quite glaring to go unnoticed.

    Interestingly, NIT-T functions every year as one of the two centres in Tiruchi for conduct of IIT-Joint Entrance Examination. Yet, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) that conducts the AIEEE has not yet accorded the AIEEE centre status to Tiruchi, despite representations from parents.

    Students from Tiruchi and surrounding districts have to go to Chennai, Madurai or Coimbatore to write the examination. In fact, if there has been increase in the number of students appearing for AIEEE from the southern districts, it is because of the awareness initiatives carried out by student groups of NIT-T, through conduct of mock AIEEE.

    Parents accompanying their wards to the examination centres opine that the struggle is avoidable and that Tiruchi is a fit case for being made an AIEEE examination centre. For, the number of students from Tiruchi region taking up AIEEE has been increasing steadily over the years. This, parents reason out, could be because of the presence of a number of CBSE schools.

    According to a parent, Pugazh Karunanidhi, who had to accompany his son to Madurai last year, the concentration levels of students get derailed when they sit for the examination after a journey. Identifying the location of the specified centre in a large city is a task in itself, and the students become weary, he felt.

    Faculties of NIT-T agree that a minor difference in the score would reflect in a huge gap in national-level ranking in AIEEE. The opportunities for students in all parts of the State must be made uniform as studying in NITs in a multicultural and rich research environment will be highly rewarding for students, G.Kannabiran, Dean – Research and Consultancy, NIT-T said, adding that last year as many as 35 students pursued summer internships in top-notch universities abroad.

    NIT-T Director Srinivasan Sundarrajan said the necessity to make Tiruchi an AIEEE examination centre has already been conveyed to the authorities concerned. The authorities have been apprised that Tiruchi being an education hub must be given the status of examination centre at the earliest, and that travel to centres elsewhere impacts performance of students from the central districts, Dr. Sundarrajan said.

  • Inaugurating this year's winter student camp at the Anna Science Centre-Planetarium here on Thursday, S. Ruban Raj, head, Mathematics Department, St. Joseph's College, addressed over 90 students from the middle school level.

    He touched upon the achievements of NASA's Kepler space telescope in identifying more than 700 exo planets. “The Habitable Exo planets Catalogue ranks the habitability of planets according to three criteria: their surface temperature, similarity to Earth, and capacity to sustain organisms at the bottom of the food chain,” he said.

    The students, belonging to over 40 different schools, were briefed on Kepler's latest finding- a planet most earth-like in its size. The planet, which has been named Kepler 22-b is about 600 light years away from our solar system and orbits its own star in the zone that scientists term habitable. “Kepler 22-b, is about 2.4 times the size of Earth and lies in the so-called "Goldilocks zone".

    It has a relatively comfortable surface temperature of about 22{+o}C (72{+o}F) though scientists are yet to determine its composition,” said Mr. Ruban Mr. Ruban also informed students about a rare event that 2012 would be witnessing. “The first of a pair of transits of the planet Venus (in the beginning of the 21{+s}{+t}century) has already taken place on June 8, 2004, and the next occurrence will be on June 6, 2012. After 2012, the subsequent transists of Venus have been calculated to occur in December, 2117 and December, 2125,” he said.

    Counting four eclipses set to transpire in the coming year, he said the annual solar eclipse would occur on May 20, a partial lunar eclipse would occur on June 4. On November 13 and November 28 there would be a total solar eclipse and a penumbral lunar eclipse respectively.

    Slated to take place over three days between December 29 and 31, the camp will see speakers from various colleges in the district, experts in yoga, electronics and origami.

    Some of the topics that will be addressed include observational astronomy, history of mathematics, practical electronics, introduction to robotics, science and magic and origami among others. Also on the agenda are practical demonstrations of scientific experiments, a visit to the Planetarium's 3D Science Centre and a session on yoga and motivational science.

  • A four-member Triennial Committee appointed by Bharathidasan University to inquire into the complaints against management of the Tamilavel Umamageshwarar Karanthai (TUK) Arts and Science College in Thanjavur on January 4, was withdrawn at the eleventh hour on Tuesday afternoon for reasons best known to the university.

    The four-member committee consisting of Dr L Kannan, former VC of Tiruvalluvar University, Vellore; Dr Rajeshwari, HOD, Education Department of Mother Teresa Women's University; Dr Athiyaman, geology professor of Tamil University, Thanjavur; and Dr Udayan of Bharathiyar University, Coimbatore, was to visit the college on Wednesday to check if the affiliation conditions related to the infrastructure were available in the college campus.

    Meanwhile, the Association of University Teachers (AUT), in a letter dated January 3, 2012, addressed to the vice-chancellor of Bharathidasan University, K Meena, took strong objection to the visit of the Triennial Committee as it superseded the earlier four-member committee consisting of Bharathidasan University faculty members that visited the college on October 3, 2011, and submitted its report to the Syndicate on October 7, 2011.

    According to AUT, the committee found that (a) excess fee was collected from students, (b) lack of infrastructure for courses offered, (c) profit-making motive of the irresponsible management, and (d) the questionable functioning of several institutions - elementary school, high school, teacher training institute, ITI, College of Education, and S R Nursery School - within the 19-acre campus, that was against the norms.

    AUT president Dr K Pandian told TOI that the college offered 27 courses of which only two - Tamil literature and Chemistry - were government-aided. The letter further said, "Whatever be the nomenclature of the committee constituted by the university, the AUT urges the university to ascertain the non-availability of infrastructure and fulfil the affiliating conditions of this university."

    In fact, Dr Pandian suspected something fishy in the hurried motive of the scheduled visit on January 4 (which was anyway cancelled) as the triennial committee was visiting the college for the first time since 2005, and the college management issuing clear instructions to the heads of department and staff members not to depose before the committee. The college was going through Pongal holidays, and the management had decided to keep the college open on January 4 in view of the triennial committee's visit.

    The principal of TUK, Dr Rajamani, said the meeting was cancelled through a phone call from the Bharathidasan University registrar around 3 pm on Tuesday (January 3)

    , whereas the letter of cancellation of meeting was dated January 2. The university registrar, T Ramasamy, later told TOI that during the whole of January 2, no email or fax could be sent to TUK college. and hence the phone call on Tuesday.

    Interestingly, when Dr Rajamani called the university's College and Curriculum Development Cell, its director Ram Ganesh told Dr Rajamani that the decision to cancel the meeting was taken on Tuesday afternoon and before long it was intimated to her.

    This chain of events proved beyond doubt that the decision to cancel the visit of the triennial meeting was taken after the AUT, in its letter to the vice-chancellor dated January 3, objected to the visit.

    Interestingly, Dr Rajamani told TOI that the AUT was targeting the college since the latter dismissed two of its staff in the recent past for misappropriation of funds running to Rs 20 lakh and collecting Rs 40,000 to be a PhD guide.

  • IIM-T panel dwells on the expectations of different sectors

    Suggestions for industry internships from the very first semester, continuous interactions between institutes and industries and the need to develop ‘unlearning' as a skill were the focus points at a panel discussion held at the Indian Institute of Management, Tiruchirappalli (IIM-T).

    Organised to mark the first anniversary of IIM-T's foundation, the panel discussion dwelled on the expectations of the industry from management graduates.

    The panel, which consisted of R.Chandrasekaran, President and Managing Director, Cognizant Technology Solutions, Xavier L'Official, Chief Executive Officer, Societe Generale Global Solutions Centre (Bangalore) and Srikant Gathoo, Director, Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited, discussed perspectives of the corporate sector, public sector and the banking sector along with their specific requirements.

    “Today, with companies having to constantly change their business models to keep pace with development, the ability to unlearn old concepts and pick up new ones quickly is the most important skill-set we look out for among graduates,” said Mr. Gathoo.

    Quoting a recent study conducted by the Knowledge Commission on management studies in India, he said there are 2,000 business schools in the country.

    A graduate from any of these B-schools can be recruited as a useful resource only after imparting skill-based training and development of soft skills, he added.

    Talent pool
    Commenting on the mammoth number of Indian graduates entering the market each year, Mr. Xavier said that the Indian talent pool is often willing to think differently.

    “When a graduate shows the capacity to reinvent existing concepts, bring in new ideas, face challenges and use his creativity and emotional intelligence to distinguish his work, he is most likely to succeed,” he said. Emphasising the need to match personal values with that of the company, he said employers often look out for people they think will feel good in their environment.

    Using Cognizant's success story as a case study, Mr. Chandrasekaran talked about how the seamless integration of MBA graduates into their framework has greatly improved the quality of their services.

    Pointing out that the number of engineers under each manager in their company has gone down from 35 to 24, he said there was ample scope for MBA students in the field of Information and Technology.

  • The eleventh Indian Institute of Management (IIM) in the country, IIM, Tiruchirappalli, recently lowered the curtains on an eventful first year that began with Union Minister for Human Resource Development, Kapil Sibal laying the foundation stone.

    Functioning from the premises of National Institute of Technology – Tiruchi (NIT-T), the IIM-T has traversed a path that laid a strong foundation for academic and extra-curricular development under the chairmanship of former SEBI Chairman M. Damodaran.

    The team of 12 faculty members has been drawn from other IIMs, IITs and reputed institutions from USA and France. Also, a multi-cultural environment has seamlessly been fused by the inaugural batch of 84 students chosen from various parts of the country based on their over 98.23 per cent score in the CAT exam, says Prafulla Agnihotri, director of the institute. Though the initial plan was to start off with a single batch of 60 students, the response was overwhelming, he added.

    Ever since the academic journey commenced on June 15, 2011, students had ample avenues for intellectual pursuits. Insight, the guest lecture series has enabled students to access the expertise of several distinguished hands in the field of management. "By the end of the course, the students would have met 20 personalities representing industry and academia," said Godwin Tennyson, Associate Professor.

    Slated for start this January is the Institute Distinguished Lecture series. It will begin with a lecture by C. Rangarajan, Chairman of the Prime Minister's Economic Advisory Council, to deliberate on matters that have an impact on the current socio-economic scene in the country, he said.

    Besides, efforts to engage with universities abroad for student and faculty exchange programs and joint research ventures are also underway.

    The institute also plans to build a faculty team of 20 members, making it the highest faculty strength among all the newly begun IIMs, Dr. Prafulla said.

    Though the focus is on academics, the institute also provides the students with opportunities that add to their wholesome development. Confluence 2011, the annual management summit hosted by IIM Ahmedabad, was a national level platform for students of IIM-T to prove their mettle. Mohanraj Ganesan and Abhijit Mishra from the institute bagged the first place in the event titled Kings of Advertisements and were rewarded with Rs. 35,000.

    In another event at the same meet, Winners of Sellers Devulapalli Sharath and Sudhakar Ayyagari won a cash prize of Rs. 15,000.

    The in-house clubs dedicated to academic aspects such as marketing, finance and consultation are as popular as clubs for music, photography and other interests among the students.

    IIM-T has plans to increase the number of its in-house programme offerings, apart from its Fellowship Programme in Management set to begin this academic year, Dr. Prafulla said, informing that international placement offers for summer internships have already been made to the students from reputed companies abroad.

  • Economic growth is critically important to increase the living standards of our people, which will help in bringing down poverty in India, Dr C Rangarajan, chairman, Economic Advisory Council to the Prime Minister said, on Wednesday.

    Delivering a lecture on the current economic scenes in India at Indian Institute of Management (IIM-Trichy) on Wednesday, Rangarajan said, "The per capita gross domestic product (GDP) remains at Rs 1,600 now. It will increase to Rs 8,000 by 2025, provided the country grows at 8% per annum."

    Further, he pointed out that the employment opportunity in India can be generated by means of growth. Schemes such as the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (MGNREGS), universal education and the food security bill passed in parliament recently, were achieved by growth, Rangarajan said.

    About the agriculture sector in the country, he said that agriculture remained crucially important to ensure food security. As far as the 10th and 11th Five Year Plans (FYP) were concerned, the country did well in agriculture sectors. However, the country had posed the challenge of inflation in 2009 -10 and 2010-11, due to which, the food production declined by 17 million tonnes in 2009-10.

    Comparing the growth rate (6.7% in 2008-09, 8% in 2009-10 and 8.5% in 2010-11), Rangarajan forecasted that the growth rate will remain at 7% to 7.25% in 2011-12. Later, speaking to media persons, he said that in order to implement the FYPs completely within the prescribed period, the mid-term appraisal will help sort out various issues in executing the schemes.

    Replying to a question, he said that compared to the 10th FYP, the 11th FYP seemed to be progressive. "In the current year, the high inflation led to postponement of investment in the manufacturing sector and it resulted in reduction of growth rate. The small scale industries were also affected by number of factors, particularly shortage of power," Rangarajan said.

    He also added, "We must organise our education system which should have the option for vocational training. We must train people to advance their skills as there are number of areas in which skills are required."

  • The country's economic growth has not been fully reflected in social indicators such as improved life expectancy and level of nutrition, C. Rangarajan, Chairman, Economic Advisory Council to the Prime Minister, said on Wednesday.

    Talking to journalists here, Dr. Rangarajan said growth helped in addressing poverty and improving living standards.

    “In my view, growth is important in our efforts to improve social indicators. The biggest growth has been in the last decade. If we continue to grow, the surplus required to launch programmes for improving the social indicators could be generated,” he said when asked whether the Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's reported admission that 42 per cent of Indian children were underweight was a ‘national shame' was tantamount to accepting that the economic growth so far has not been inclusive.

    Dr. Rangarajan, however, said that while it was difficult to estimate the level of malnutrition, poverty could be reduced by one percentage point per annum. “If we continue to grow by 8 to 9 per cent and sustain it over the next decade, we can reduce poverty by 10 per cent,” he said.

    Dr. Rangarajan was here to deliver the inaugural lecture of the Institute Lecture series of the Indian Institute of Management, Tiruchirapalli.

    On the pace of implementation of the current Five-Year Plan, he said corrective measures were put in place after a mid-term appraisal. For instance, the performance of the power sector during the 11{+t}{+h}Plan was distinctly better than that of the previous Plan period, though the target could not be achieved. He exuded hope that the figures would improve in the final year.

    For the small industries sector, power shortage was a major problem. While there was a need to work in the direction of infusing vibrancy in the debt market for the benefit of small and medium industries, the most important factor was availability of adequate power, he said.

  • A research by Tamil Nadu Agricultural University — Anbil Dharmalingam Agricultural College and Research Institute at Navalur Kuttapattu near here has proved that the ‘BPT 5204' variety, normally raised in fertile regions of delta districts, is ideally suited for the alkaline or sodic soil too.

    The college, located in the Manikandam block with the single block accounting for largest area of sodic soil in the State, has conducted a research by sowing the variety in about 20 acres in its research fields.

    The college was established on the sodic soil with a view to evolving paddy varieties tolerant to sodic or alkaline soil.

    It has since evolved and recommended three varieties - TRY 1, TRY 2, and TNAU Rice TRY 3 - all suited for salt or alkaline soil.

    “We have experimented on the BPT 5204 variety, popularly known as ‘delux ponni', and raised this medium duration 135-day crop in August last.

    On Saturday, when the crop was harvested, the agricultural scientists of the college were taken by surprise to note that the average per hectare yield was about 7,500 kg.

    “There has been a scramble among the farmers to go in for this variety which has an assured market. Obviously, there has been a growing demand for quality seeds. One major problem with the variety is that it is prone to pest attack and diseases.

    The yield could be registered on the research campus because of the perfect crop protection techniques and disease management strategy,” says V.Jayabal, Dean of the college.

    The college has brought about 39 acres under different varieties of paddy.

    The largest area of 20 acres has been brought under ‘BPT 5204'; followed by eight acres under ‘TRY 1'; two acres under ‘TNAU Rice TRY 3'; 2.5 acres each under ‘white ponni' and 'ADT 49'; and 0.5 acre each under ‘TRY 2' and ‘ADT 46'; according to K.Annnadurai, professor and head of agronomy.

    He said mechanical harvester was pressed into service for expeditious harvest of the produce.

    S.K.Ganesh, professor and head, plant breeding and genetics, says that the harvest of other varieties would be taken up till mid-February.

  • The Bharathidasan University in Trichy has allegedly been gripped by an "in-charge syndrome," and curiously enough, all the eight colleges coming under the university, are being presently led by in-charge principals, all of whom are in the rank of assistant professors.

    Among them, three colleges (Perambalur, Lalgudi and Orathanadu) are funded by the university itself, four (Aranthangi, Vedaranyam, Thiruthuraipoondi and Nannilam) are funded by the UGC, and the one at Inamkulathur, a fulfilment of chief minister Jayalalithaa's promise during her thanksgiving visit to Srirangam, is funded by the state government.

    According to a source, initially, the assistant professors were designated as 'special officers', but in order to make them eligible to vote in the election of syndicate members, they were re-designated as principals in-charge with full additional charge. There are a total of 22 syndicate members including eight ex-officio honours.

    The appointments could not have been more glaring than in the case of Vedaranyam College where Dr C Lakshmanan was appointed as in-charge principal on July 20, 2011. Within less than a month, on August 18, 2011, the university registrar wrote to Dr P Ramajayam, assistant professor, Centre for Study of Social Inclusion and Exclusive Study that "you are appointed as principal in-charge, with full additional charge of Bharathidasan University College, Vedaranyam during the absence of period of Dr C Lakshmanan, assistant professor of this university with immediate effect, until further orders."

    In the case of Perambalur College, Dr M Nallu, who was then a "director" of the college, was on August 17, 2010 requested "to hand over all the charges and responsibility to Dr K Mururgadoss, assistant professor in the department of commerce of the same college on or before August 25, 2010."

    Though the post of the principal in an A-grade college must be in the rank of a professor, once again Dr G Sathiyan, another assistant professor from the Centre for Study of Social Inclusion and Exclusive Study was posted as principal in-charge of the college, on August 1, 2011.

    To add insult to injury, the registrar himself, who signs all the appointment orders after they are ratified by the syndicate, has been given two extensions. The registrar, T Ramasamy's tenure ended in September 2011, and he asked for an extension of six months, but granted three months (October to December). In fact, the university should have advertised for a new registrar six months prior to the end of his tenure, so that the new candidate might step in when the incumbent's term gets over. Interestingly, he asked for another extension for one more year, but the syndicate has anyway given him six months through the "syndicate in circulation", whereby the minutes would be carried to each individual when the syndicate is not able to meet. Speaking to TOI, Ramasawmy gave a flimsy excuse saying, "I asked for the extension because my daughter would be completing her studies only after six months."

    Likewise, the term of the controller of examinations, at present held by Dr S Sridharan comes to an end by the end of this month. In fact, Sridharan himself told TOI that he has applied for an extension of three months and that the order would be coming now anytime.

    When asked why ad hoc measures were ruling the roost in the university, the vice-chancellor K Meena told TOI on Monday night that "action would be initiated."

  • In the backdrop of University Grants Commission (UGC) guidelines for reducing animal use in education in phases, the Mahatma Gandhi-Doerenkamp Centre (MGDC), Bharathidasan University, was invited to organise a session on the theme: Animal Alternatives in Teaching and Testing, at the recent Indian Science Congress at KIIT University, Bhubaneswar.

    The session was addressed by four scientists from abroad constituting Dr. Thomas Hartung, Doerenkamp-Zbinden Chair for Evidence-Based Toxicology, Johns Hopkins University, USA; Dr. Marcel Leist of Doerenkamp-Zbinden Chair for In-vitro Toxicology and Biomedicine, University of Konstanz, Germany; Dr. Albert P. Li, CEO, AP Sciences, USA; and Dr. Hossein Hosseinkhani of National Taiwan University of Science and Technology, Taiwan.

    Dr. Thomas Hartung, who is also Director, Centre for Alternatives to Animal Testing (CAAT), USA, explained that inferences drawn from animal experiments may not always be the same as for humans.

    The modern human cell based assays and bioinformatics tools, including genomics, proteomics and metabolomics, can be greatly adopted in the place of animals in toxicity testing.

    Dr. Marcel Leist, emphasized that the validating process should ensure the reproducibility, relevance and hypothesis-generating potential of the test method. Many of the validated tests are now accepted by the OECD and the European Pharmacopeia, said Dr. Marcel Leist, who is also the Director, Center for Alternatives to Animal Testing in Europe (CAAT-EU).

    Dr. Albert P. Li, spoke on the novel toxicity testing system, known as Integrated Discrete Multiple Organ Co-Culture (IdMOC), which he invented and patented.

    Human body is complex

    Tests using single human cell types may also lead to wrong conclusions since the human body is complex, he said.

    Dr. Hossein Hosseinkhani explained the utility of tissue engineering in development of in vitro alternative models in toxicity testing.

    The session was also addressed by Dr. Shiranee Pereira, Senior Scientist, CIBA, Indian Council of Agricultural Research, Chennai; Dr. P. Balakrishna Murthy, Director, International Institute of Biotechnology and Toxicology (IIBAT), Padappai; Dr. Surendra Ghaskadbi, Head, Division of Animal Sciences, Agharkar Research Institute, Pune; Dr. Krishan K. Sharma, Dean- PG Studies, Maharshi Dayanand Saraswati University, Ajmer, and Dr. M.C. Sathyanarayana, Visiting Faculty, MGDC.

    Since regulatory authorities for drug discovery and testing in India are still prescribing the age-old animal testing methods, the exposition from the scientists at the ISC in this session was an eye opener, M.A. Akbarsha, Director of MGDC, said.

    The General President of ISCA, Dr. Geeta Bali, appreciated the endeavour of MGDC in bringing up a highly competent team to talk on the progressive theme.

    The deliberations will have an impact on the science policy of the country, she said, advocating a validating agency in India like in Europe, Japan, USA, and Korea.

    There is a quota for TN students in NIT - T .. Thats what I heard..
    - murlee, in 14 years
  • Yes, 50% quota for home state students rest 50% All India quota.
    - satishanu, in 14 years
  • Thank god for 50% home state quota else if it is only through AIEEE TN students will get almost 0 percent only. Not to hurt anyone but just TN kids(parents also) are becoming more complacent with state based syllabus only and not motivated for exams like IIT and AIEEE.

    I feel very sad for this attitude of TN people. They are just TN people not having the minimal integration with rest of India.

    The home state quota is still less around 25% don't know exactly. But for sure TN children lags in such competitive exams. Mostly parents living in urban side are somewhat knowledgeable about this but the case of rural people is that no one to guide them to choose even a better college in Anna university Counselling. Where i have seen students getting around 90-95 got seats in other town college which is not even up to the mark. The main reason is that they don't have any guidance.

    BHEL has initiated efforts to transform its Welding Research Institute (WRI) here into a Centre of Excellence in Fabrication.

    New facilities such as Thermo-mechanical Cycle Simulator, Software for Remnant Life Assessment and Water Jet Cutting have been added. Successful establishment of robotic welding of transformer tanks; Laser Hybrid welding of capacitor boxes, and friction stir welding of bus ducts, have benefitted sister units. WRI was in close liaison with the German Welding Society and other internationally reputed institutions, said, the Executive Director of BHEL, Tiruchi, A.V.Krishnan, on Thursday. He was speaking at an International Symposium on Joining of Materials (SOJOM) organised jointly by WRI and Indian Welding Society (IWS), Southern Zone. Mr. Krishnan, who is also the president of IWS, informed that society was playing a nodal role in professional training and education in welding field through 15 centres in five zones. Over 1000 welders and about 550 fresh engineers have been trained. SOJOM 2012, he said, was a fitting sequel to its last six editions.

    Presiding over, S.Karunakaran, General Manager, Seamless Steel Tube Plant, and Convener, Advisory Committee, said the event was of high value and interest to industries, research and academic institutions, welding equipment and consumable manufacturers as well as testing, inspection and certification agencies involved in the field of joining of materials. Owing to the country moving in the direction of adding 1,00,000 MW of power generating capacity during the 12{+t}{+h}Five-Year Plan period in the backdrop of industry posting a healthy growth and output of finished steel witnessing a spurt, welding technology growth will contribute to introduction of new processes and techniques in the industry, he said.

    Inaugurating the SOJOM exhibition, S.Sundarrajan, Director, National Institute of Technology – Tiruchi, said the Institute's partnership with BHEL was poised to grow for the benefit of fabrication industries in the region with WRI support. The industrial partnership reflected in BHEL officials handling classes in NIT-T and the WRI providing research support. Dr. Sundarrajan expressed desire to establish a research park in the Institute to carry out exclusive research for BHEL.

    S.Suresh, Chairman, Technical Committee, and Additional General Manager and Head, WRI, said the response from authors was overwhelming. Over 120 papers are scheduled for presentation through 17 sessions over three days. Contributory papers from industry and academia will be presented in 11 parallel sessions on the theme: cutting edge technologies for accelerated growth. More than 50 organisations from welding industry are exhibiting their recent equipments, consumables and tools through 66 stalls, he said.

    R.Sundar, Director of Boilers, Tamil Nadu, handed over the first copy of symposium proceedings to P. Nainar, Advisor (IWS, SZ) and General Manager. Founder president of IWS J.J. Nanda released the first copy of IS 2K12 brochure and handed it over to Himanshu Gandhi, Hon. Secretary, IWS.

    Earlier, S.Gopinath, Chairman, IWS, SZ, and General Manager, welcomed the gathering. K.Asokkumar, Hon. Sec, IWS, SZ, and Additional General Manager, proposed vote of thanks.

  • In all NITs, home state quota is 50%. one seat more or less.
    Only AIEEE ranks are considered with usual reservation policy. (During our time, no AIEEE. Apart from TN, each state NIT will recruit their quota from their state and send to Trichy)

    In Trichy NIT, TN quota of 50% is always filled up fully. Trichy NIT is the most sought after by top rankers across India.

    TN students can generally be divided into

    AIEEE toppers from TN - mostly CBSE - less of State Board
    (AIEEE Toppers from other states but of TN origin also will be there - not in TN quota)

    AIEE Middle Rankers from TN but selected through a complex sliding system - Rank, choice of branch, vacant seats, quota not filled up etc.

    Backward Community Quota
    Most Backward Community Quota
    Scheduled Castes / Tribes Quota.

    The top AIEEE rankers from these communities may also be admitted in other castes Free seats quota, if their rank is better.

    Their AIEEE rank will determine their choice of branch and no of applicants and separate sliding system within quota.

    There is one or two seats for Phyically challenged from Other castes (generally FCs) and BC, MBC, SC & ST.
    There are one or two seats for Ex Service men's wards
    There are seats reserved for PIOs, NRIs and they have to apply through the respective Indian embassies from the countries of their domicile. Dollar Payments, I think.

    One of the cheapest & the best Engg colleges to study in India. Fees are very reasonable.

    We had 9 excellent messes catering to North Indian & South Indian tastes but the current crop of students complain about the Mega Mess which has replaced the old messes.

    I also heard WiFi is not available in the hostels - Another major complaint. FB Pakkallenna Thookkam varuma ?

    Kannan sir, the only thing that I felt missing is the absence of sports quota. Sports is very important. I believe it was there in your times. It was there before I joined. Wifi has been introduced in some hostels last month and the new director is taking a lot of initiatives in improving the college as a whole, including revamp of mess infrastructure, ties with industries and CSIR labs, change in curricula etc. And now there are talks of collaboration with foreign universities for research, faculty training and student exchange.

    Here is a survey by Outlook for this year's Engineering colleges.

  • We were poor souls.

    We had to apply to every state REC separately. Later it was modified that REC Trichy will select and send.

    Anna Univ was born during 1978 and only 3 colleges in Anna Univ then - CEG, AC Tech & MIT. A separate interview process for Ann Univ.

    All other colleges were under DOTE and REC was part of DOTE and all the DOTE colleges ( REC, PSG, CIT, GCT, GCES, TCE, ACCET) had a common Interview system.This was separate from Anna Univ.Annamalai was the only Pvt Univ.

    Based on the PUC / HSC marks, your priority for interview would be fixed.
    Weigtage for PUC / HSC was 100 marks for Maths, 50 marks for Physics & 50 marks for Chemistry and 100 marks for interview. Total 300 Marks.

    Anna Univ - UG in CEG & AC tech only. MIT had only PG.

    The cut off for CEG & REC used to be at that time approx 275 - 285 / 300. For FC it would be generally in 290+

    TN had quota in all other 13 RECs - approx 9 seats in each. Approx 120 students from TN would go to other RECs.

    Each REC will have approx 200 to 250 seats. Mainly the priority would be Mech, EEE, ECE, Chem. Civil. At that time no CSE or IT. Out of that 50% goes for home state and balance for other states.

    Total per year was around 125 students in Trichy REC and 120 students in other RECs.

    AC Tech - 40- 50 seats / branch (Chem, Textiles, Leather)
    CEG - 60-70 seats per branch Total approx 300 seats.
    Annamalai Univ - approx 300 seats.

    For Chemical, we had very few choices. AC Tech (Anna Univ) in Chennai, REC & CIT in DOTE (Madras Univ) & Annamalai Univ. Other good ones were UDCT, Bombay, DCE, Delhi & Jadhavpur Univ, WB. BITS, Pilani was also full of TN students who lost out on reservations in TN. (Then BITS admission was based on PUC / HSC marks only and TN students used to get high marks compared to other states)

    Similarly Metallurgy also was only in CEG & REC. In my batch only 3 students in Metallurgy (only 3 in entire Madras Univ) and they were Madras Univ 1st, 2nd & 3rd rank holders. :lol:

    Getting into an Engg college was 98% by merit only and 2% used to be pull & push (but still min criteria or cut off applicable).

    In my batch from Viveka, Chennai, many good students did not get Engg seats and they ended up taking BSC Phy & Chem and almost all of them went for MIT & IISc (3 yr Engg or PG).

    They used to make fun that the official language at IISc & BITS was Tamil .:)
    - kannan infratech, in 14 years
  • OMG kannan your post is fantastic your completely brought the Eng scene in TN in early 80.:cheers:

    When I did my Bsc in Viveka I missed a opportunity to prepare for IISC and I targeted MIT and got in. Many of my friends did get in IISC and right I agree the integrated ME in IISC is fully dominated by Tamils. (There used to be one professor in Viveka called GV he used to take Math class for physics students and all my classmates I think 6 guys who did that classes qualified for IISC)

    Lot of Applied science BSC students from CBE(PSG and CIT) and MDU also joined IISC and during my college days I visited IISC couple of times and my friends when in Chennai used to visit MIT since lot of Applied science students from CBE and MDU were in chennai.

    After going through that phase when I hear now only few TN students go to IIT and IISC I really feel bad.

    Indian Institute of Management–Tiruchirapalli (IIM-T) has forged understandings with six institutions abroad: two each in France and USA, and one each in Sweden and Singapore, for student exchange programmes.

    The MoUs will be signed soon. Faculty exchange programmes also come under the ambit of the MoUs, the Director of IIM-T Prafulla Agnihotri told reporters on Sunday.

    The IIM-T, he said, will be the first among the new IIMs to start a Fellow Programme in Management – FPM (equivalent to Ph.D), a full-time doctoral level programme designed to equip students for careers in research and management, with a maximum intake of 10.

    Alongside attractive stipend, the candidates will be entitled to additional allowances, contingency allowances, and provision to take part in one international conference. The IIM-T has made its presence largely felt through participation in events at its sister institutions in Ahmedabad, Bangalore and Calcutta.

    Likewise, students representing all other IIMs have taken part in events of IIM-T.

    Started with its own faculty numbering 12, the IIM-T will witness an addition of two more by next month.

    By the start of the next academic year, the Institute expects to have 20 faculties in all functional areas of management on its rolls.

    The number of candidates could go up to 120, he said, adding that the infrastructure availability will determine the extent of intake.

    Approval for the committees formed for establishment of permanent campus of the IIM-T is expected in three-weeks.

    Work will begin soon thereafter and completed in three years. In the first phase, Rs.300 crore (without taking price escalation into consideration) would be spent on construction of academic block, hostels for 500 students, and quarters for faculty and staff, Dr. Prafulla said.

  • Indian Institute of Management –Tiruchi (IIM-T) has achieved the unique distinction of being the first among the newly started ones in the country to witness an international summer placement for a student in the batch of 2011-13.

    A U.S.-based company has made the placement offer to the student at its Singapore centre. There was likelihood for three more international summer placements, IIM-T Director Prafulla Agnihotri, told media persons on Sunday. Forty companies, including FMCG (Fast Moving Consumer Goods) majors, recruited 83 students for internships in various domains.

    Renowned companies that offered marketing roles constituted HUL, P&G International, Perfetti Van Melle, Pfizer, Merck Sharp & Dohme, Rediff.com, Amul, Berger Paints, Arvind Limited, IOCL, Edu Nirvana, mHealth Ventures, Natesan Synchrocones, Innopark and Tata Metaliks.

    Recruiters in the finance space were Citibank, HSBC, ING Vysya, ICICI, Yes Bank, L&T, NCDEX, UBI, IFMR and Kotak Mahindra.

    Profiles in the areas of consulting, operations, HR and strategy were offered by Cognizant Business Consulting, Mahindra & Mahindra GMC, IBM Research, Wipro, Lumis Partners, VFS Global, Redington, IL & FS, Index Advisory, Tata Chemicals, Murugappa Group, Gammon India, Impetus Consulting, Xindia Steels, and Sterling and Wilson.

    The average stipend offered for the internship period of eight to nine weeks from April-March to May was Rs.53,000, excluding travel, accommodation and other benefits. The highest domestic offer was Rs.1.2 lakh.

    “Catering to the career aspirations of all students as per their aptitude was a major highlight. Even certain niche and unique interests such as renewable energy, mobile healthcare and online marketing were considered while placing students. One student chose to venture out on her own to pursue her interest in the field of Corporate Sustainability,” said Godwin Tennyson, chairperson, Placement and External Relations. Some of the companies visited again with more placement offers, he said.

    Owing to the quality of faculty (drawn from IITs, IIMs, and international institutions of eminence), infrastructure and Library established at a cost of Rs.75 lakh, the IIM-T has been rated best among new IIMs by MHRD and external agencies, the IIM-T Director said.

    How many NITTians got into IIM T last year ?

    None of 18 NIT-T students from last year based on the following news, but not sure about this year though.

    It has been observed that a large number of students getting admitted to prestigious B-schools of the country belong to National Institute of Technology, Tiruchy (NIT-T). And the number of such candidates are rising every year. This year, 18 students have secured admissions in Indian Institute of Management.

    Out of them three have claimed seats in IIM-Ahmedabad, two each in IIM-Bangalore and IIM-Indore, five each in IIM-Calcutta and IIM-Kozhikode and one in IIM-Lucknow, besides a few on the waitlist.Last year, the number of successful students, including waitlisted one, was about 15. In the preceding years, the success rate was only in single digit.

  • Backed strongly by its alumni network, Seshasayee Institute of Technology (SIT) that pioneered polytechnic education in the State since its start in 1952 has planned a year-long celebration of its Diamond Jubilee.

    Founded by V.Seshasayee, a native of Valadi in the district whose technical intelligence helped the Railways to devise the ‘block system' and brought about accelerated industrial development in South India, the institution has been instrumental in the growth of several small and medium size industries in the district. Starting off with a humble beginning by conducting A.M.I.E. classes, the SIT now has more than 1,000 students, including 300 girls, enrolled in six full-time diploma programmes: Civil Engineering, Electrical and Electronics Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Instrumentation and Control Engineering, and Electronics and Communication Engineering. The Diploma programme in Pulp and Paper Technology was started by the SIT for the first time in entire State. It also offers Post Diploma in Plant Maintenance.

    Briefing presspersons about the year-long Diamond Jubilee celebrations, T.R.Sivaraman, Honorary Secretary of the SIT Governing Council, said that the management has put in place the process for starting an engineering college. As the Institute was being run with a service motive, and the alumni were keen on enhancing the quality of infrastructure, he said.

    Holding high positions in industries of repute, the alumni have been instrumental in ensuring cent per cent placement for the students every year, the Principal S.Sangapillai said. The Institute will conduct several events including ball badminton, chess and table tennis tournaments; workshops, technical exhibition, and science exhibition contest for school students, Mr.Sangapillai said. The Executive Director of BHEL, Tiruchi, A.V. Krishnan, will inaugurate the diamond jubilee year celebrations on January 28.

  • The Madras High Court has upheld a single judge's order directing the Centre to consider a deemed university's proposal of 2007 to set up an off-campus centre in Tiruchirappalli by applying the University Grants Commission (UGC) guidelines which existed prior to 2010. A bench comprising Chief Justice M Y Eqbal and Justice T S Sivagnanam in their recent order said that as noticed by the single Judge, though Section 26(3) of the UGC Act conferred power to make a regulation, including with retrospective effect, no retrospective effect should be given to any regulation so as to prejudicially affect the interest of any person to whom it may be applicable. The Bench was dismissing an appeal by the Human Resources Development Ministry challenging the single judge's order on a petition by SRM University (Deemed) near here directing the Ministry to consider its application in the light of the UGC's recommendations of September 2009 to the Centre clearing the proposal. The Ministry claimed that the single Judge was wrong in directing the university’s application to be considered under the old guidelines after the same had been superseded by the 2010 regulations. The university, however, submitted that grave prejudice was caused to it on account of the ministry's direction to apply afresh under the 2010 regulations as the news rules came into force during the pendency of its proposal. The university said the power under the regulation itself was prospective and could not prejudice anyone.

  • Sixty years ago, a generous purse of Rs.30,000 given to industrialist V. Seshasayee on the occasion of his 60th birthday was what led to the country's first polytechnic college post-independence. Having entered its diamond jubilee year this month, the Seshasayee Institute of Technology has planned a series of activities that it would host throughout the year.

    The chief guest for the inaugural function of the diamond jubilee celebration, A.V. Krishnan, Executive Director, Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited, Tiruchi said, “The institute, being older than BHEL, was and continues to be the main source of manpower for the company. Being the first institute in the country to gain the autonomous status, SIT has the apparatus to impart practical-oriented learning to its students.”

    Addressing the students in the gathering, he said the world, business environment and culture were fast moving towards professionals who were not only capable of high levels of performance, but also those who possessed the soft skills required to work in a team.

    T. R. Sivaraman, Secretary, Seshasayee Educational Society, who presided over the function, said the institute will organise a variety of seminars and symposiums that would enrich knowledge of the students throughout the year.

    V. Nagarajan, former principal, SIT, called the campus a nursery of technical institutions to come. “Students from the Regional Engineering College (now National Institute of Technology), Tiruchi, used to utilise SIT's laboratories for their experiments till their own labs were set up. It has also shared its campus with other technical institutions that were just being set up back then,” he recalled.

    The event was attended in large numbers by the alumni of the institute, which has churned out over 12,000 graduates till date.

    Dr. S. Sudharssanam, an alumnus of SIT who has made a detailed study on the life and contributions of the institute's founder said: “V. Seshasayee pioneered the supply of electricity in the Madras province of those days and it was his efforts that electrified temple complexes like Rameshwaram, Madurai Meenakshi Amman temple, Srirangam and Tiruvanaikovil. He was also the first person to introduce bus service between Tiruchi and Perambalur.”

    S. Sangappillai, principal, SIT, Prof. P. Kothandaraman, secretary, SIT Alumni Association, and N. Raju, vice principal, SIT were present .

  • “Success is not an end, but a process. When exercising a career choice, opt for the job that you would love to do rather than the one that offers greater pay and perks,” T.S.Sridhar, Additional Chief Secretary, Higher Education, told management graduates at Bharathidasan Institute of Management (BIM) here on Saturday.

    Though it is fashionable to exhort young people to follow their dreams, it was important that youngsters have the right dreams.

    The dream should be driven by passion. “It should not be just about goals and targets, but about what you want to do and how to do it,” he said.

    Academic knowledge and application of business management when tempered with real life experience will lay the foundation for successful managerial careers, he said while delivering graduation day address at the 23{+r}{+d}Graduation Day of the institute. Having invested in education, young graduates should realise that the future would be what they make of it, he said.

    K.Meena, Vice Chancellor, Bharathidasan University, exhorted the graduates to be in tune with changes and be creative to bring about solutions to problems . The BIM, she said, occupied a pride of place among business schools in the country and has recently been rated with three stars by CRISIL.

    A.Nagarajan, Director, BIM, former directors Pyare Lal Arya and N.Bala Baskar spoke.

    One hundred and sixteen graduates received their degrees on the occasion.

  • As the central budget is getting nearer, there is more noise on matters which are closer to chest. The leading voices from the industry, some time back complained that policy paralysis has hit the government amidst grave distractions such as the anti-corruption movement and so on. One of the key issues that is doing the rounds with out much headway is the handling of subsidy on fuels. It is seen that despite the flight of crude prices over the years, the solution to contain the huge costs have been to tinker with the pricing, though not in tandem. The usage of diesel, as is well known, is clocking new heights with private light vehicle transport such as diesel cars are selling hot. The 30% differential between petrol and diesel prices has contributed to the abuse of subsidy.

    The policy options on fuels are to move on to new horizons to seek solutions that are not merely centered on saving industry segments and fiscal health. The assorted and intertwined issues of public health, pollution, climate change are to figure better. We are betting too much on innovations in the area of automobiles and fuel technology from other countries. The euphoria over biodiesel is not carried to action. Large tracts of non-arable lands are lapped up for non-farming purposes at ridiculous prices or otherwise given free in the name of development. Lands in use for quarrying and mining activities are good candidates for farming for biodiesel. Tobacco is named a villain for causing cancer. Large areas under tobacco cultivation can be substituted with crops for bio diesel.

    It is often said in various seminars that there is a poor link with institutions of research and the industry in the Indian scene. Both ancient and modern findings that emerged from our soil do not benefit the countrymen. In the immediate issue, we had reports that scientists attached to National Institute of Technology, Tiruchirapalli are closer to perfecting a biofuel with non-edible oil seeds of Jatropha, Neem and Mahua in combination with water and negligible levels of surfactants. The problem of weak combustion is claimed to have been taken care of with the adding of some nano particles of alumina. On the face of it there is a great opportunity over there on desi alternative that is propitious. Giving the right impetus to path breaking research such as this may free the country from the shackles of dependence of crude oil that is burdening. As a country that is capable of harnessing the strengths of the raw materials involved, we should not be losing on our own innovations,which are capable of being carried away in stealth to other countries. We have scores of incidents over centuries, where others make masters for our indigenous knowledge.

  • With global warming and the burgeoning population placing a tremendous pressure on the amount of water available for agriculture, students and faculty members of the Agricultural Engineering College and Research Institute in Kumulur have set up a demonstrative irrigation farm on their campus.

    Spread over two and a half acres, the irrigation farm is used exclusively for the purposes of education, training and research. Set up about five months ago by the students and faculty members of the Department of Soil Water Conservation, the farm displays a variety of irrigation methods along with the crops that can benefit from particular models.

    “The farm has demarcated portions of land that are irrigated by micro sprinklers, sprinklers, rain guns, drip irrigators and sub-surface irrigators,” said S. Somasundaram, Assistant Professor, Agronomy. The concept behind the farm is based on a course that Mr.Somasundaram completed in Israel recently.

    Some of the advantages of using these irrigation methods include conservation of water up to 50- 60 percent, economic usage of fertilizers, suitability to all soil types and usage of salt water for irrigation among others.

    Talking about the crops that each of the irrigation method supports, the faculty members K. Nagarajan and Mr. Somasundaram said: “Micro sprinklers can be used on fields where small crops like groundnut, onion and radish are grown; sprinklers (which can be used on lawns too) are used for black gram, green gram, groundnut and vegetables; rain guns can irrigate crops like sugarcane, vegetables, black gram, green gram and fodder crops; drip irrigation can be used along with vegetables, sunflower, all gourds, maize and watermelon and sub-surface drip irrigation can be used to water banana plantations.”

    The farm hopes to be a model using which students of agriculture, farmers, irrigation engineers and the concerned government department officials can be trained.

  • Over 600 farmers from the delta region were introduced to the latest techniques in farm mechanisation at an expo organised by the Agricultural Engineering College and Research Institute at Kumulur near here on Sunday.

    Organised in the backdrop of severe shortage of agricultural labourers and the rise in cultivation costs, the exhibition displayed a few ongoing student projects, besides the machinery already available in market.

    “Agricultural labourers migrate to urban areas, to work as construction labourers and get paid Rs.400 per day, whereas agricultural labour can fetch them only Rs.120 a day,” said P. Murugesa Boopathi, Vice Chancellor, Tamil Nadu Agricultural University, addressing the media.

    “If the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme could be implemented during the lean season (February to May) alone, then farm labourers can work on farms the rest of the year, when agricultural activity is in full swing.

    This will ensure that labourers are occupied throughout the year,” he said, adding that they could be made to work on the 38,000 tanks in the state to de-silt, deepen and strengthen bunds, he added.

    The stalls at the expo, set up by agriculture-related companies, displayed a range of products such as tractors, agricultural implements, organic fertilizers, pesticides and seed varieties. The farmers were taken through the machinery, explained how to operate them and told from where they could be purchased.

    “Mechanisation of agriculture will not only save money but also time for the Indian farmer and the Tamil Nadu government has offered a 50 per cent subsidy on the machinery costs to help them,” said Mr. Boopathi. The day-long expo also included demonstrations of food processing techniques by the Indian Institute of Crop Processing Technology, Thanjavur.

    “Today, with the existing farm machineries, it is possible to sow, transplant, weed, harvest and segregate straw from the grains- in other words, we can now have 100 per cent mechanised paddy farms,” said Dr. A Tajuddin, Dean, Agricultural Engineering College and Research Institute.

    However, mechanisation is still not possible with other crops, like cotton, maize and sugarcane, where the machinery and technology required are still under development.

    Every year the college submits a set of farm equipments that were devised in-house by students and faculty members, to the Tamil Nadu Agricultural University (TNAU) in Coimbatore. After being screened by experts at TNAU, the selected projects are sent to the government for approval.

    “This year, the college sent 12 models for approval among which the Improved Coconut Tree Climber and the Tractor-operated Multipurpose Hoist have been approved for commercial release,” said R. Thyagarajan, Assistant Professor, Department of Farm Machinery. The other models will be brought back to the college for improvisation.

  • The humanoid in the superstar-starrer ‘Endhiran' was the first image that most of the 70 school students could conjure up at the mention of a robot. But at the end of the ‘Introduction to Robotics' workshop at Anna Science Centre-Planetarium here, their perspective of robots changed to automated machines they could easily build from scratch.

    The one-day workshop organised by Tamil Nadu Science and Technology Centre had students from Classes 7,8 and 9 from 13 schools explore the nitty-gritties of robotics.

    A team of experts from RACE Robotics, Chennai including R.M.Kuppan Chetty, A.Vimal Antony, T.Suresh and P.Dhananchezhian familiarised students with electronic components and building of robots through elaborate video presentations in the forenoon session. Armed with instructions, students set about assembling line robots from a pile of batteries, sensors, wheels and activators.

    The session wound up with a self-assessment quiz and all participants received certificates.

    Earlier, inaugurating the workshop, S.Raghavan, head, Department of Electronics and Communication, NIT-T, noted robots were used in a spectrum of fields, including tourism, healthcare, information technology, and biomedicine. Robotic surgeries, particularly minimally invasive surgeries are being considered as safer options due to accuracy, speed, efficiency and minimization of human error. R.Ahilan, planetarium engineer spoke.

    By acquainting students with fundamentals of robotics, the workshop intended to introduce robotic engineering as a prospective career option to students, said J.R. Pazhanisamy, Senior Scientific Assistant.

    A couple of students had actually evinced keen interest in the feedback session, he added.

    More events and competitions are on the anvil in February to mark National Year of Mathematics.

  • National Institute of Technology– Tiruchi (NIT-T) intends to make the most of the presence of Indian Institute of Management–Tiruchirapalli (IIM-T) on its campus, for operating its proposed incubation centre successfully.

    The NIT-T is all set to accord a thrust to entrepreneurship as the Department of Information Technology, Ministry of Communications and IT, New Delhi, has favourably considered its proposal for establishing an incubation centre under TIDE (Technology Incubation and Development of Entrepreneurs) Scheme. Under the scheme, Rs.1.55 crore is to be provided for infrastructure and seed money to prospective entrepreneurs to start ventures in the areas of electronics and ICT (Information and Communication Technologies).

    S.Sundarrajan, Director, NIT-T, disclosed this on Tuesday at the inaugural session of the week-long Entrepreneurship Week India celebration. The institute is celebrating the event for the first time through its Entrepreneurship Club, which has been organising prestigious annual business plan events such as Ventura, Genesis, and TEDx Tiruchi. The Institute is one among 300 organisations nationwide celebrating the event supported by National Entrepreneurship Network (NEN) and Wadhwani Foundation.

    Students at NIT-T have already been learning managerial nuances necessary for entrepreneurship through involvement in the activities of various clubs, Dr.Sundarrajan said, adding that unlike in the past, money was not a constraint for prospective entrepreneurs with business ideas.

    Though there were probabilities for initial failures, relentless pursuit of entrepreneurship would inevitably lead to success, he emphasised.

    Assuring the support of IIM-T for the TIDE Centre, its director Prafulla Agnihotri, expressed confidence in the ability of NIT-T students to perform well.

    Inaugurating the E Week celebration, Dr.Prafulla said the manufacturing sector's contribution needs to be optimised to strengthen economy. Citing instances of multinational companies such as General Electric, Toyota, Infosys, Sony, and Panasonic, the IIM-T director said the founders dared to dream in adverse situations and believed in doing what they were passionate about. Entrepreneurs ought to take failures in their stride and make corrections to their entrepreneurial approach in the course of fulfilling their dreams, he said.

    Staff advisors P.Kalaichelvi and S.Vinodh joined the student members of E-Cell in taking the E-Week pledge. The week-long events constitute ‘Quote Your Price' (a tender filling event to be aware of product costs and profits made), Going Boeing (teams representing aircraft manufacturing company must get maximum orders out of their clients), Quiz on entrepreneurship, Inspiring Entrepreneurs (a documentary series on success stories of highly regarded entrepreneurs shown on projector), Boardroom (an upgrade from traditional panel discussion wherein contestants have to offer suggestions to bail out loss making companies), and Virtual Currency Exchange (creating a virtual scenario of global currency trading market).

  • Citing poor water availability on the main campus, teaching, non-teaching staff, and student associations of Bharathidasan University on Friday submitted a memorandum to the Vice-Chancellor and Registrar opposing transfer of a 22-acre portion of land with water-yielding bore wells, currently in the university's possession, to the Indian Institute of Management–Tiruchirapalli (IIM-T).

    Representatives of these associations urged the university to adopt a resolution for retaining the 22 acres, at the meeting of its Syndicate on Saturday.

    According to university sources, the State government had initially transferred 194 acres from Bharathidasan University for the IIM-T. However, on request, the 22 acres were subsequently taken back as this portion has the bore wells from where water is supplied to hostels and the quarters.

    Even with the borewells, the overall water availability was inadequate, and the problem turns acute during summer, according to the university staff.

    Though there were several other borewells elsewhere in the campus, water yield was meagre. Those in the 22-acre area fulfilled 70 per cent of the university's water requirement, sources said.

    Having fenced the 172 acres in its possession, the IIM-T was now awaiting transfer of the 22 acres to its name, sources added.

    Anticipating necessary steps by the university to retain the land portion, the representatives said that the agitation will otherwise intensify.

    “We would otherwise be pushed into a situation of agitating for retrieving the entire land in the possession of IIM-T,” one of the association representatives said.

  • The State government on Friday introduced a Bill to set up National School of Law (NSL), a university and an advanced institution for imparting legal education keeping pace with the changing global scenario. The headquarters of this national-level institution will be in Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa’s Srirangam Assembly constituency.

    The Bill was introduced by Law Minister C Ve Shanmugam. As per the announcement made in the revised budget for the year 2011-12, the NSL would come up at Navalur Kuttapattu in Srirangam taluk on 25 acres of land owned by the Tamil Nadu Agricultural University.

    The NSL will be on the lines of the NSL at Bangalore which was established in 1986. A national-level Common Law Entrance Test (CLAT) will be conducted for admission to the university. By setting up of this university, more Central funds can be received for legal education. Already, 12 States have National Schools of Law.

    Chief Justice of the Madras High Court will be the chancellor of NSL. The CJ may nominate a judge of the HC as the chancellor of the School. State Law Minister will be the pro-chancellor.

    NSL, Bangalore has exchange programmes with the National University of Singapore, Osgoode Hall Law School, York University, Canada, Bucerius Law School, Germany, etc.

    A similar programme can be evolved for the NSL to be set up at Srirangam.

    NSL, Bangalore has exchange programmes with the National University of Singapore, Osgoode Hall Law School, York University, Canada, Bucerius Law School, Germany, etc.

    A similar programme can be evolved for the NSL to be set up at Srirangam.

  • The State government on Friday introduced a Bill to set up National School of Law (NSL), a university and an advanced institution for imparting legal education keeping pace with the changing global scenario. The headquarters of this national-level institution will be in Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa’s Srirangam Assembly constituency.

    The Bill was introduced by Law Minister C Ve Shanmugam. As per the announcement made in the revised budget for the year 2011-12, the NSL would come up at Navalur Kuttapattu in Srirangam taluk on 25 acres of land owned by the Tamil Nadu Agricultural University.

    The NSL will be on the lines of the NSL at Bangalore which was established in 1986. A national-level Common Law Entrance Test (CLAT) will be conducted for admission to the university. By setting up of this university, more Central funds can be received for legal education. Already, 12 States have National Schools of Law.

    Chief Justice of the Madras High Court will be the chancellor of NSL. The CJ may nominate a judge of the HC as the chancellor of the School. State Law Minister will be the pro-chancellor.

  • Indian companies should seize the opportunity to bid for new generic top domain level-gTLD names (like website suffixes ‘.com' and ‘.net') by making the most of a joint applicant programme set up for supporting developing nations.

    This would ensure the international essence of the internet registry space that has a higher American and European concentration, Olivier Leblond, chair of the At-large advisory committee (ALAC) of Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) told The Hindu here at the ‘permissionless innovations in business' lecture at the Bharathidasan University of Management (BIM).

    The gTLD for which applications opened in January allows Indian language scripts and the joint applicant support programme, partly sponsored by ICANN, would enable organisations from developing nations to apply and access technical consultancy at reduced rates.

    Admitting the criticism of expansion of domain system increasing opportunities of internet fraud as valid, Leblond countered that stringent regulations such as $1,85,000 registry fee and a 360-page manual ensured that only organisations with competence would operate their own gTLD .

    “It is the responsibility of the ICANN to maintain stability of domain space and we are taking expansion of domain name system very seriously,” he said, adding that both counter measures for phishing and the uniform domain name dispute resolution policy (UNDR) have been strengthened.

    Sunrise period

    A sunrise period would be a given for domains which would be intimated about users applying for intellectual property rights without real authority.

  • Farmers should make use of latest techniques developed by scientists of the Tamil Nadu Agricultural University (TNAU) in protecting crops from the ravages of pests and diseases, said V.Jayabal, Dean, Anbil Dharmalingam Agricultural College and Research Institute of the TNAU here on Wednesday.

    Delivering the inaugural address at the three-day farmers training programme on ‘diagnosis and management of nematode diseases' organised jointly by the ADAC and RI of the TNAU and the National Agricultural Development Project of the State government here recently, Dr.Jayabal emphasised the impact of nematode diseases on cultivated crops.

    The ADAC and RI is organising many such training programmes for the benefit of farming community and the farmers should take advantage of this, he added.

    E.I.Jonathan, Director, Centre for Plant Protection Studies, TNAU, Coimbatore, in his special address explained that training is necessary as awareness among the farmers about nematodes causing damage to cultivated crops is very low.

    Eco-friendly methods

    Unlike insects and disease, where the farmers can identify the organism or damage easily, nematodes and their damage symptoms are difficult to diagnose. He also explained the various eco-friendly methods of nematode management in crops.

    R.Chandrasekaran, Deputy Director of Agriculture, explained that the various state and centrally sponsored schemes. R.Pandiarajan, Assistant Director of Agriculture, R.Shanmugam, Assistant Director of Horticulture, G.Gajendran, professor and head, Department of Plant Protection of the college, offered felicitations.

    In the training programme, scientists imparted training to diagnose the nematode diseases of various crops and their integrated management to the farmers.

  • To mark the declaration of 2012 as the National Year of Mathematics, the Anna Science Centre-Planetarium conducted an interactive programme recently, under the regular Meet Your Scientist series.

    The guest speaker for the day, M. Marudai, Associate Professor, Department of Mathematics, Bharathidasan University, addressed a gathering of 80 school students on shedding their inhibitions towards the subject and on its relevance to almost every field.

    Speaking on the topic, ‘Invitation to Research in Mathematics and Mathematical Genius Srinivasa Ramanujan and his Contributions', Dr. Marudai said that mathematics was not just a subject, but a language. “Mathematics is the queen of sciences and without it other subjects cannot thrive,” he said.

    Acknowledging the tremendous contributions made by Srinivasa Ramanujan to the field of mathematics, he said that it was a fitting tribute to the mathematician that the 125th anniversary of his birth year had been declared the National Year of Mathematics.

    Pointing out that graduates in mathematics could fit into almost any field of work he said that the National Institute for Higher Mathematics offered scholarships to B. Sc. Students who wish to pursue higher education in the field.

    With the National Science Day falling on 28 February the Anna Science Centre will be organising drawing, elocution and essay writing competitions on mathematical themes, said J. R. Pazhaniswamy, Senior Scientific Assistant of Anna Science Centre.

  • The National Institute of Technology – Tiruchi (NIT-T) has accorded a thrust to learning of national language by students from non-Hindi speaking States through its Hindi Cell.

    The Institute has begun using Hindi for all internal administrative correspondences. Inscriptions in Hindi have been made prominent in all name boards, and the Institute has also put up Hindi translations of Thirukkural throughout the campus.

    As part of its Hindi-promotion initiatives, the Institute on Thursday witnessed release of its Hindi magazine: Pratibimb, by the Aayam Club.

    The Director of Indian Institute of Management – Tiruchirapalli (IIM-T) Prafulla Agnihotri released the magazine in the presence of Usha Sharma, assistant director, Ministry of Human Resource Development, and the Director of NIT-T, S. Sundarrajan.

    Mr. Agnihotri spoke of the importance of speaking in local language elsewhere outside the State for eliciting instant response, while Ms.Usha Sharma was appreciative of the qualitative content, particularly poems, in the magazine.

    Presiding over the occasion, Dr. Sundarrajan observed that the campus in the midst of rich diversity witnessed students from Northern States teaching Hindi to Tamil students, and learning the local language from them simultaneously.

    Hindi cell

    The Hindi cell, in the process of fulfilling the requirement for fostering the national language, will also serve as a forum for dissemination of scientific content, Dr. Sundarrajan said, expressing confidence that the students will ensure success of the significant initiative, thereby preparing themselves to serve the nation from any part of the country.

  • National College has cited very poor admissions in UG and PG Philosophy programmes as the reason for winding up the department from 2012-13. The College Principal K.Anbarasu termed as “factually incorrect” the charge made by K.Pandiyan, State president of Association of University Teachers (AUT) that students were not opting for Philosophy course due to collection of excess fee and that the management was slowly converting the aided college into a self-financing one. “The college does not collect even one pie in excess of government prescribed fee,” Dr.Anbarasu said in a communication.

    Citing the college's correspondence with the Directorate of Collegiate Education, Dr.Anbarasu said no student opted for B.A. Philosophy in the last two academic years. The four students admitted to first year M.A. Philosophy in 2011-12 have not been regular in attendance and have not taken the examinations.

    Though the department has a total sanctioned strength of nine teachers for both UG and PG, as on date there were only five teachers, since the rest had already retired from service and the government has not given permission to fill up the vacancy. Of the five, two will retire on May 31, and with no students opting for the course, the three (remaining) teachers will have absolutely no work. The total of monthly salaries that the three teachers will receive from the government will amount to Rs.2,34,333, and per year it works out to Rs.28,11,996.

    Hence, the Management Council, in its meeting on December 12, 2011, felt that the fact may undermine the image of the college, and unanimously resolved to close down the department of Philosophy. The management, therefore, requested the Directorate of Collegiate Education to redeploy the three teachers on rolls as on June 1, 2012, to any other college where Philosophy was taught.

  • St. Joseph's College will conduct a national conference on ‘Twenty Years of Economic Growth and Inclusive Growth in India' on February 13 and 14, involving the departments of Commerce, Economics, History, Human Resource Management, and Management Studies.

    The specific themes of the conference constitute performance of agriculture, industries, service sector and inclusive growth; inclusion in the spheres of economic, political, social, education, employment, science and technology, finance, governance, and environment; and strategies and policy prescriptions to achieve inclusive growth, according to the organising secretary Rev. Dr. S. Lazar. Speakers drawn from reputed institutions including Oxford University, MIDS, Indian Institutes of Technology, and the Tata Institute of Social Sciences, Mumbai, will be speaking at the conference on various topics relating to growth, reforms, economic liberalisation, rights of poor, role of NGOs. The Collector, Jayashree Muralidharan, will make a presentation on ‘Inclusive Development and Civil Administration: Some Reflections,' on the second day.

    Explaining the context for the conference, Fr.Lazar said that as a result of economic reforms, successive governments attempted to reach higher level of human development, and India has emerged as one of the strongest economies of the world, posting an average growth of 7.5 per cent.

    While the newfound wealth could reflect in millions of people gaining access to world class consumer goods and services, the high GDP growth has not resulted in simultaneous reduction in the number of people living below poverty line for decades.

    The gap between the rich and the poor has widened considerably in the last two decades, as is reflected in India's 137th position out of 185 nations in human development index, as shown in the UNDP Human Development Report, 2011.

    The social classes such as tribals, scheduled and backward classes, and women and children still find themselves excluded from the growth and its benefits. The conference will be inaugurated by Bhalachandra Mungekar, president, Institute of Advanced Study, Shimla, and former Member, National Planning Commission. The Director of Centre for the Study of Social Exclusion and Inclusive Policy Maulana Azad National Urdu University, Hyderabad, Kancha Ilaiah will deliver a valedictory address on the topic: Is Inclusive Growth Possible in Existing Structures of Democracy?', and distribute prizes.

    In the current globally competitive era, it is imperative for today's students to be innovative in doing things and be open and adaptive to newer conditions, K.Subburaj, chairman, Cethar Limited, Tiruchi, said on Saturday.

    Alongside focussing on creating a work culture among students, academicians and institutions should accord equal emphasis on building values among them, Mr.Subburaj said inaugurating ‘Athenaeum 2012', a two-day international conference on management research organised by the Bharathidasan Institute of Management here.

    Institutions should ensure that students get industrial orientation while pursuing their studies as this would expose them to the industry working pattern and their requirements.

    Observing that doing business in the present times was not an easy task, Mr.Subburaj said the prevailing environment had necessitated companies to utilise their resources effectively. Work culture was important to optimally utilise the resources, he added. Stating that there was high level of migration in companies today, he said this trend could not be avoided as people keep shifting in search of growth prospects. The key issue was to find ways to manage human resources effectively and scale up operations, he said.

    The BIM Director A. Nagarajan, conference chairman and Head, Centre for Contemporary Management Research David Jawahar were present on the occasion.

  • After a great start in the first academic year (2011-13) by getting all but one of its 84 students internships in various domains, the Indian Institute of Management (IIM), Tiruchirappalli, is now adding one more feather to its cap: Offering 10 Fellow Programmes in Management (FPM is equivalent to a PhD in a university) that carries a stipend of Rs 30,000 pm throughout the course, that is expected to run into a maximum of five years.

    Of the 13 IIMs in the country, six (Ranchi, Rohtak, Raipur, Udaipur, Kashipur and Trichy) were launched in the last couple of years, and Trichy and Ranchi are the only two to offer this FPM. Nevertheless, Trichy is still special because it is the only IIM among the later entrants to have all full-time faculties, as many as 12 of them, while two more will be joining shortly. A French faculty member, Mouloud Madoun, who teaches Human Resources, is one among them, and as many as seven experts are on the visiting faculty list. "This academic strength enables us to cater to the specific, individual needs of research scholars round-the-clock," IIM Director Prafulla Agnihotri told TOI on Friday.

    Talking about FPM, Agnihotri said the aspiring candidates would have to prove their innovative skills to the selection committee of the IIM in addition to going through a rigorous preliminary selection process that factors in the CAT score, profile score, WAT (Written Aptitude Test) and PI (Personal Interview). Depending upon the selection of the individual discipline, the selection panel would also include experts from outside the faculty, Agnihotri said. But, for deserving candidates with a creative bent of mind, it would come as a great opportunity. The criteria that would govern the selection process would be the usefulness of the programme to the industry and society at large, result-orientation, clarity of ideas, level of knowledge and sustained passion in a given field. The short-listed candidates would be finally required to make a presentation of their ideas and to teach students later, once selected, said Agnihotri.

    The Trichy IIM campus will be bubbling with added enthusiasm once the next batch of some 80-plus students join it in the current programme this May. The first of the three phases of infrastructure development will be ready by June 2014. and a sum of Rs 300 crore will be spent on the construction of an academic block, hostel for 500 students and quarters for faculty and staff.

  • The National Institute of Technology-Tiruchi (NIT-T) has announced initiation of entrepreneurial activities under the TIDE (Technology Incubation and Development of Entrepreneurship) Scheme implemented by the Union Ministry of Communications and IT, during April.

    Final year students with entrepreneurial acumen are to be identified and provided with seed money of Rs. 25 lakh each for translating ideas into products, with the Rs.1.55 crore-funding sanctioned by the Ministry under the scheme for fostering entrepreneurship in the areas of electronics and ICT.

    According to G. Kannabiran, Professor of Management and Dean – Research and Consultancy, the ICICI Bank has also provided innovation fund of Rs. 25 lakh for funding projects for converting unique ideas into products.

    The Institute would encourage students to become employment-generators, its Director S. Sundarrajan said recently, at the valediction of a week-long Entrepreneurship Week India celebration, conducted by the E-Cell for the first time with support from the National Entrepreneurship Network and Wadhwani Foundation.

    Unlike in the past when the only avenue for career growth was employment in educational institutions and industries, all that was required of students was having good ideas. Funding was not a constraint; there were good government schemes, Dr. Sundarrajan said.

    Incubation support would serve the purpose of enabling future entrepreneurs to tide over possible difficulties on marketing and other fronts in the initial stages, the NIT-T Director said, adding that the Institute has taken steps to accord industry-orientation for all research activities. Incubation of ideas would work well with an inter-disciplinary approach, he felt.

    The Institute invited its alumnus S. Ananthakrishnan, Managing Director, CEEYES Metal Reclamation Pvt. Ltd., as a role model to motivate the participants.

    Mr. Ananthakrishnan established the company in 1991 with incubational support from the Tiruchi Regional Engineering College – Science and Technology Entrepreneurs Park (TREC-STEP) promoted by the Regional Engineering College (now NIT-T), and the Department of Science and Technology, New Delhi.

    Started with the objective of reclaiming ferrous and non-ferrous components using metal spraying technology, the company at SIDCO industrial estate in Thuvakudi has now grown to have manufacturing facilities as well, Mr. Ananthanarayanan who completed Production Engineering programme said, urging the students to be prepared with a roadmap and to take a direct plunge to learn by experience.

    Keen involvement in the activities of various clubs in the Institute would stand the students in good stead when they transform into entrepreneurs, he said.

    Students who took part in the various competitions during the week under the guidance of Staff Advisors P. Kalaichelvi and S. Vinodh were honoured with prizes.

    Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa on Monday laid the foundation stone for the establishment of a Rs. 100 crore national- level Law School at her native Srirangam constituency.

    While she had launched a School of Excellence in Law (in Chennai) earlier, the need for a School of Law arose to increase the quality of legal education in the state to international standards, Ms. Jayalalithaa said.

    “I am happy to lay the foundation stone for the Rs. 100 crore National Law School coming up over 25 acres at Navalur Kuttapattu,” she said.

    At a government function held here, the Chief Minister said the state Assembly had passed an Act for the establishment of such an institution.

    A total of eight law colleges including a private institution were functioning in the state and these were affiliated to the Tamil Nadu Dr Ambedkar Law University, she added.

    Ms. Jayalalithaa also launched a series of welfare activities including her party’s flagship programme of providing fan and mixer free of cost, at a total cost of Rs. 240 crore.

    Act 22 of 1986.- One of the functions of the Bar Council of India is promotion of legal education. To carry out that object the Bar Council of India created a charitable trust called the Bar Council of India Trust which in turn registered a Society known as the National Law School of India Society, in Karnataka. The Society framed necessary rules to manage the National Law School of India with powers to confer degrees, diplomas, etc., and requested the State Government to assist it, by establishing the School as a University by a statue so that it could carry out its objects effectively. The State Government considers it desirable to encourage the establishment of such a national level institution in the State.

    Hence the Bill.

    (Obtained from L.A. BillNo. 28 of 1986.)

    AND Whereas the National Law School of India Society, has requested the State Government to establish the National Law School
    of India University on the lines of the said rules to enable it to carry out its objects and functions effectively;



    So, the necessary "satta thiruththam" should be carried out by (or in the presence of or by formal approval of, not sure) the State Governor in the State Act to establish such a school from the above quoted article.

    Srirangam is not even a suburb of Trichy, but a part of Trichy just like Mylapore/Tiruvanmiyur to Chennai.
    But many people think Srirangam is nearer to Trichy rather than a part of it and even media mentions in the same way(like "Srirangam, in Tiruchirapalli district").

    Bajk has given the link and i saw the same getting approved by the speaker in Jaya TV. I tried to say she is giving more priority to her constituency alone, but many places in her Constituency comes in the surrounding of Trichy so it becomes a project for Trichy.

    Till now the major problems which she mentioned in her election manifesto to be cleared under Trichy I and II constituency is not even came for talk, all remains unchanged. Can we make all the three constituency into single Srirangam constituency then we can expect all the problems of Trichy can get cleared.

    Also Srirangam is not a suburb part of it forms the first 6 wards of the Trichy Corporation. As it is a Island surrounded by Kaveri and Kollidam it gives a weird look of a separate town. The region further to Srirangam towards Chennai called Pichandarkoil only forms a Major Suburb of trichy with lots of residency and Even a 12Km further Town called Manachanallur(Heared of Manachanallur Rice?) is also a Suburb of Trichy.

    India should either push forward with economic reforms or abandon it completely; the country cannot remain in a state of policy paralysis as it is today, said S. Neelakantan, former director, Madras Institute of Development Studies.

    Tracing India's growth story, Prof. Neelakantan explained that the socialist thrust behind India's economy had its origin in the resolution passed at the Avadi Congress session in 1955. The policy was pursued vigorously by successive governments until 1991. However, this top-down approach – where major economic decisions are made and executed by the government – led to over-regulation, and fruits of economic development were pocketed by people who could reach to the corridors of power. The ‘visible hand' of the government failed to provide the necessary growth to alleviate poverty from society. Hence the government ushered in economic reforms where market forces started playing a major role .

    The country now finds itself in a piquant situation of inheriting only the vices of socialism and capitalism, Prof. Neelakantan said speaking at the valediction of the ‘National Conference on Twenty Years of Economic Reforms and Inclusive Growth in India,' at St.Joseph's college here on Tuesday.

    Inequalities will always be there in market-driven economy as market tends to celebrate and embrace meritocracy as against reservation, and efficiency as against equality, he said.

    People like Ilayaraja, A.R.Rahman, Dhirubhai Ambani, and Steve Jobs rose to prominence because of their own skill. However, according to Prof. Neelakantan this celebration of meritocracy is not without its own share of flaws, as merit, according to him, is the gift of nature and not everyone is equally endowed with this natural gift of merit. “Meritocracy is intolerable and is a complete injustice on a lot of people who have suffered discrimination for generations,” he said.

    While this is the argument of the votaries against meritocracy, the pro-meritocracy and anti-reservation camp-followers feel that reservations, which favour some over others on the basis of certain assertions, are equally unjust.

    ‘Invisible hand' of the market, according to proponents of free-market philosophy, should have the free reign in resource allocation. But markets fail because of information-asymmetry, as not all participants in a purely market-driven system will have the right information at their disposal to take economically prudent decisions. Hence, market generated growth will always lead to unequal growth and as quoted by Alfred D.Chandler the ‘visible hand' is always needed to correct market failures.

    To address this two contrasting paradigms, Prof. Neelakantan suggested that Paul Romer's ‘Charter Cities' offers a good alternative paradigm for widening ‘inclusive growth.' Rev.Fr. John Britto, Rector, V.Pattabiram, Chartered Accountant, Chennai, and Rev. Fr. John Bosco, deputy principal, spoke.

    Adding to the above points.

    Srirangam is neither a suburb nor a seperate town.
    It is one of the zones of the corporation.
    Before 1996 it was a municipality which later included to the city corporation.
    Few parts of Tiruverumbur and Srirangam constituencies also be mapped into the city.

    I hope atleast now our forumers will realise why i was keep on telling to merge the Srirangam thread to Trichy main thread.

    Whenever some one sees the SSC they tend to think that its a separate town. I mentioned this long back but no one just bothered about that. I stopped discussing on the same. Its not only in SSC, people in other parts of TN still thinks the same. Hope its our duty to make them know understand. It doesnt mean we have to do agitation, Wherever we get chance we should utilize.

    Again i would like to tell everyone, im not against of anything. I am just trying to make people understand about the situation.

    Hi Isham seeing your post long time after, i agree to your point, but we must give certain prevelage to one of the attraction to trichy so there is no wrong in giving a seperate thread for it, with special eye from CM many more to happen here.

    It would be better to rename the thread in such a manner that it relates to trichy.

    Give some names and we can make it.

  • Increasing educational opportunities was the only effective way for inclusive development, said Collector Jayashree Muralidharan.

    Only through promotion of educational initiatives can India emerge as an economic superpower, she said, delivering a talk on ‘Inclusive Development and Civil Administration: Some Reflections', as part of the two-day conference on ‘Twenty Years of Economic Reforms and Inclusive Growth in India' organised jointly by the departments of Commerce, Economics, History, Human Resource Management, and Management Studies of St.Joseph's College recently.

    Agriculture being the backbone of Indian economy, the sector's growth must be accorded high priority. Observing that low recognition for agricultural work was due to the low income, the Collector explained that the sector's growth will reflect in economic progress in very many spheres. She advised the younger generation not to abandon agriculture and called for initiatives to increase cultivability of land with a concern for ecology. Water must be conserved through drip irrigation, and use of fertilisers and insecticides must be avoided.

    Absence of inclusive development reflected in the increase in the number of BPL households despite the economic progress. The Collector said small scale industries need substantial support, adding that the flooding of domestic market with Chinese goods was ominous. Logistics and infrastructure must be developed.

    As for the health sector, there has been improvement in life expectancy and literacy rate, but the male-female ratio – 1,000: 927 – was indicative of deep-rooted social malaise in the forms of infanticide, dowry and social stigma, she said, and also felt the maternity mortality rate in villages needs to be reduced. Ways must be evolved to ensure balanced nutrition for children, she said.

    Civil administration, she said, was a challenging job, and that the task was to make all the people stake holders in the development process. The Right to Information Act was a facilitating factor.

    College Principal Rev. Fr. Sebastian Anand presided over the session.

  • Andhra Pradesh governor, ESL Narasimhan, on Friday called for restoring India's mathematical glory by deriving inspiration from legendary mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan.

    Addressing a gathering at the national conference on Vedas - the treasure house of mathematics, at the SASTRA University in Thanjavur, Narasimhan said, "It is high time we sketch an action plan for renaissance. The intelligentsia should remember that we are the heirs of the infinite mathematical wealth left behind by our ancestors."

    Admiring Ramanujan, he said despite living only for 33 years, he rose to the level of Fellow of Royal Society (FRS), Cambridge, in 1918. Had he lived for some more years, he would have won the highest order of awards such as the Nobel for the country.

    Narasimhan reiterated that the Vedas were the treasure-house of knowledge and this was an established fact. While jyotisha (astrology) was needed to find out Vedic rituals, jyotisha also required knowledge of Ganita (mathematics) that occupied the top most position among the Indian sciences. Jyotisha was a science based on movements of planetary bodies. A study of it was possible when the scale of time and direction were applied. The application of time, direction and distance involved mathematical calculations.

    Thus either astrology or astronomy could not survive without mathematics while the science of Vedanta was the back-bone of all Vedangas."Like the crest of a peacock and the shining gem on the hood of the cobra, Ganita is the supreme of the Vedangasastras," he said.

    Referring to ancient Indian scientists such as Lagadha, Aryabhatta and Brahmagupta, he said they measured time and distance. The measurement of time started with Nimesa and ended with Brahma Kalpa. But Nimesa was wrongly translated as minute. "The Indian Nimesa is just the time taken to close or open the eyelid. It's not the duration of 60 seconds."

    At the conclusion of his speech, he suggested a few points to restore the glory of mathematics, saying Vedic mathematics should be introduced in Vedapathasalas from 5th standard onwards, universities should think of introducing Vedic mathematics at the postgraduate level and that special incentives may be offered to scholars pursuing research in Vedic maths.

    Narasimhan appealed to the audience to come forward to save the country from the deficit of mathematical knowledge and the scarcity of mathematicians. Besides, he urged everyone to learn Sanskrit, which was the gateway to understanding ancient Indian wisdom.

    Despite being the world's largest banana producer, India is yet to become an efficient producer, according to annual wastage figures. With ripening cycle of just four days, the quality of bananas is greatly affected by environmental conditions and the artificial methods used until now to ripen them, said R.Krishnan, Chief Executive Officer, Rinac India Limited.

    The company, which specialises in cold storage solutions, launched on Saturday, Bana Barn, a pressurised Banana Ripening Chamber (BRC) that promises uniform ripening and reduced wastages. “Indians consume bananas throughout the year, irrespective of their economic status, which means there is a huge domestic demand for the fruit besides the international market. But farmers, traders and consumers alike have been affected by the unregulated ripening process,” said Mr.Krishnan.

    Bana Barn, standardised according to specifications set by the government of India, comes in a variety of capacities ranging between 5 metric tonnes to 20 metric tonnes. Explaining the technology behind the ripening chamber, he said that Bana Barn uses a multi-compressor rack refrigeration model that ensures uniform and energy-efficient ripening. “The BRC comes as a unit of four chambers that allows the farmer/ trader to regulate the distribution of the produce. Also, they can choose to pause or hasten the ripening process to suit the market demand, thereby ensuring lesser wastage and higher profits,” he said.

    Developed as part of the Cold Chain Task Force, a joint initiative by the Ministry of Agriculture and the Confederation of Indian Industries, the BRC supports farm produce at the post-harvest stage to prevent wastage. “Bananas being ultra sensitive to temperature are ripened at 14 to 16 degree Celsius with a relative humidity of more than 90 per cent. This ensures lowered ripening costs, better quality and elimination of weight loss due to loss of moisture,” said Mr. Krishnan.

    Having entered the market just two years ago, BRCs are yet to catch up amid Indian banana producers, who are used to ripening with industrial grade calcium carbide. “The government has now banned this method because of its negative effects on the nervous system by reducing oxygen supply to the brain,” said Mr. Krishnan, who added that there were other banana ripeners in the market that use the lesser efficient non- pressurised technology which cost lesser. “The government is still allowing their sale because it is better than using no ripening mechanism at all,” he said. The government has declared a 40 per cent subsidy on the BRC's cost to encourage banana farmers and traders to switch to an efficient production method. At a seminar organised later in the day, the company met prospective customers from the banana-rich Theni, Coimbatore and Tiruchi belt to answer their queries about the BRC.

    It is really a pride that Hindi, our national language, is spoken by over 400 million people worldwide making it one of the most commonly spoken languages. It is imperative that every Indian learns Hindi so that he can communicate without trouble throughout the country,” said Justice K. Venkatraman, Judge, Madras High Court.

    Speaking at the 15th State level Visharad Convocation on Sunday, he stressed upon the various qualities a student needed in order to reap the benefits of education.

    Touching upon the development of the sabha's activities in the once hostile state, B. Chinnayan, Treasurer, DBHP Sabha, Tamil Nadu, said that the state was one of the most active among all the four zones of the sabha. “When Mahatma Gandhi set it up, the sabha might have faced resistance in the state, but with its present performance, we can face those who say Tamil Nadu is against Hindi and tell them that most of the country's Hindi learners come from here,” he said. He also added that places like Madurai, Erode, Coimbatore, Nagercoil and Thoothukudi were being targeted by the sabha.

    With the sabha celebrating its platinum jubilee this year, several leaders like A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, Union Home Minister, P. Chidambaram, Tamil Nadu Governor, K. Rosaiah and Gujarat Chief Minister, Narendra Modi sent their message of appreciation to the sabha and the graduating batch.

    Out of 5,483 students in Tamil Nadu who completed the Visharad level, 3,584 received their degrees here at the Dakshin Bharat Hindi Prachar Sabha. Teachers chosen from all the four zones for sending in the highest number of examinees, state rank holders and speech competition winners were also awarded by Mr. Venkatraman. S. Arunachalam, First Vice President of DBHP Sabha, Tamil Nadu was also present at the event.

    By wresting the sliver medal, Karthick, a first-year B.Tech student in Mechanical Engineering, has also won the national honour for the Institute for the first time.

    Karthick's talent was recognized during the December training at Vel Tech Multi Tech College, Avadi, and selected to represent Tamil Nadu, Puducherry and Andaman & Nicobar as the Best Cadet in the Air wing. Karthick was guided and motivated by A.N.O Dr.P.Saikrishnan, Flying Officer, his Co Group Captain, N.Dinakaran, and co-Cadet Santosh Chauhan from Coimbatore.

    He had the rare privilege of meeting the President, the Prime Minister, the Defence Minister, and chiefs of armed forces, besides rubbing shoulders with cadets of friendly foreign countries, including Nepal, Bhutan, Singapore, Vietnam, Russia, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Afghanistan, Turkmenistan, and Kazakhstan.

    According to Karthick, participation in RDC has steeled his resolve to reform the country as a true patriot.

    Karthick, who has been recognized in the past for talents in communication, singing and ballet, is often invited to be the Master of Ceremony for high-profile events.

    Having earned appreciation for his oratory skills from the Deputy Director General, Brigadier Jagmohan Verma, the outstanding NCC cadet drew inspiration from Director-General Lt.Gen P.S.Bhalla AVSM. Karthick is keenly anticipating his selection for the Youth Exchange Program in NCC that will take him to some foreign country as a cultural ambassador.

    NIT-T Director S. Sundarrajan felicitated Karthick at a brief function recently.
