Research & Innovation should be encouraged by Indian Education System: President

The Indian higher education system should not follow a “routine fashion”, said the President Pranab Mukherjee while addressing the 22nd convocation ceremony of the North Eastern Hill University (NEHU), Shillong on 22 October 2013. There has to be an “elevated level of urgency” among administrators and academicians to keep on introducing research and innovation in curriculum in order to motivate students toward the same. “Universities need to develop in their students a scientific temper and a curriculum that will encourage the growth of research and innovation,” said the president.Although, the country’s efforts

at stretching the infrastructure of higher education in India had yielded positive results, only a very few academic institutions in India has managed to gain global rankings, and this is due to lack of quality education, said the president. President Mukherjee also lamented that not a single Indian university comes in the list of world’s top universities. “These rankings are based on certain specific criteria. The standards of our universities are much higher than what the rankings suggest but the universities have not been able to adequately present our cases for a higher ranking”, he added. Urging institutes to retain meritorious students and keep research activities at focal point, the President asked universities to maintain international exposure in terms of having visiting professors from abroad, and student and faculty exchange program. Among all the analysis, President Mukherjee praised the Centre for Cultural and Creative Studies of NEHU for it’s working towards encouraging the artistic and cultural aspirations of the students. To preserve, protect and promote the rich diversity of the northeast, the centre is collaborating with the indigenous community of the state. Acknowledging NEHU as a centre of empowerment for the people in the northeast, the President expressed his glee over gender parity in the student population — a 1:1 ratio of malefemale stddents, in the University. He also applauded the fact that women outperform men here.

And the legend of the origins of that dynasty could be sung as a full-throated opera full of mystery, seduction, tragedy and final triumph. The dynasty of Chandellas started as a result of a divine seduction!Once, a mythical time ago, Hemavati, the beautiful daughter of a priest, was seen bathing in moonlit lake by Chandrama, the moon. The bright immortal descended on earth and fascinated her. But when dawn came and Chandrma (moon) had to depart , he promised the distraught Hemavati that the son born of their union would be great king and possess the Philosopher’s stone which would turn base metals into gold and he will built a castle on the Kalinger mountain. Chandrma also told her that when your son become 16 years of age then ask him to perform a Yagna (ritual) that will again make you pious.All that he had promised came true. Their son, Chandravarman was born, and at the age of 16, he saw both a tiger and a lion with a stone. He then founded the great Chandella dynasty, which ruled this area for more than a hundred years.Chandravarman, performed the Yagna for her mother and built 25 temples. And that place became the Mehoba (the Moon’s festive place) and founded his capital there. Chandellas grew so powerful that they established themselves as independent rulers under Yasovarman and who is also Known as

The splendor of this royal city is living since sixth century. Once upon a time the patron saint of the shepherds and cowherds, Gwallipa, cured a king a of leprosy and thus the city got its name Gwalior on the saint. With the decline of Muslim power in Delhi, Gwalior fell under the sway the MarathasScindias assumed sovereign power. The Scindias, counted among the most glamorous of Indian princes, became famous of their wealth and were popular with successive viceroys because of their generous hospitality and capacity to organize thrilling tiger shoots for visiting dignitaries.

Six gates built in a distinct Hindu or Muslim style lead the way up to the summit. There are six Palaces encircled by the massive ramparts of this fort- these again show a beautiful blending of the Hindu and Muslim styles and testify the catholic taste and tolerance of the ruling dynasty. There are many water tanks in the fort. The most prominent are the Johar Kund, where the Rajput women immolated themselves to save their honour when defeat and disgrace were imminent, and the Suraj Kund, where the family deity of the Scindias,the sun god, was worshipped. It is an impressive mustachioed Surya that blazons forth from the royal emblem of Gwalior.

The ceiling is painted in pale green and gold and the floor is covered with perhaps the largest one-piece carpet woven in situ by the carpet makers in the world. This is the room about which lady Dufferin the Vicereine exclaimed in 1884, “ The magnificent room in which we lost ourselves last night”. The two crystal chandeliers are reputed to be the largest in the world with the possible exception of one on display in the Tsar’s winter palace outside Moscow. When the huge chandeliers were about to be installed, doubts were expressed whether the ceiling would bear the combined weight of about six tons. The ruler of Gwalior could indulge in such expensive fancies because he was one of the richest men of his tome.

Moral instruction in schools important for moulding children

students turning into killers or committing suicides, a cross-section of people in this southern metropolis say. The general lowering of tolerance levels in society, the influence of social media and teachers becoming more focussed on completing the syllabus are some of the other reasons, they added. “Research studies have found that the foundation of a person’s moral values solidifies by his seventh year. Parents and teachers should take extra care to inculcate good values during this period which will guide the person till his/her end,” Chitra Aravind, a city-based consultant psychologist, said in response to an IANS survey on what ails society today. Children absorb values and other things happening around them till they are eight or nine years old, and after that they start analysing. “In these days of nuclear families, schools play an important role in shaping a person’s moral values. Sadly, we see parents and schools consider their wards to be syllabus-cramming machines rather than children,” Nitya Varadarajan, managing editor of Parent Circle parenting magazine, told Press. According to her, with attitudes changing fast due to communication technology, social media and nuclear families, schools should focus more on inculcating moral and human values in children. “Parents too should change their attitudes. Moral values, soft skills are more important during a child’s formative years than marks,” Aravind remarked. The hacking to death of L.R.D. Suresh, 53, principal of the Infant Jesus College of Engineering and Technology in Tuticorin district by three students for suspending one of them has shocked the state. Last year, a Class 9 student of St. Mary’s Anglo-Indian School here stabbed his Hindi teacher, Uma Maheswari, to death for complaining to his parents about his poor academic performance.

Way back in 1996, John David, a student of medicine at Annamalai University, Chidambaram in Tamil Nadu, killed and chopped his junior Pon Navarasu’s body into several parts and scattered them in different places. Violent clashes amongst college students who possess dangerous weapons is becoming common. There is also the trend of students and girls committing suicide after getting upset over minor matters. “In our parlance, there are two kinds of anger - anger-in and anger-out. Generally the girls suffer from anger-in, they do not let out their problem and resort to suicide. But it is anger-out for boys, who let out their anger on others, sometimes violently,” psychologist Aravind said. She said parents have an important role to play when their children are in the 15-16 age bracket and they cannot shift their responsibility to teachers. “The education system that many years ago also used to impart good values in students is now only focussing on making students secure marks. This is the main reason for this degradation,” PMK founder S. Ramadoss said. “Big and small screens (cinema and television) are to blame for this situation. Further, schools have discontinued moral instruction classes and this is also one of the reasons for students behaving in a violent manner,” M. Ponnavaiko, vice chancellor of SRM University, told IANS. Fifty percent of the population falls in the les-than-25 years age bracket, Ramadoss pointed out, adding that if the country is to become a superpower, a lot needs to be vested with this group. “It is important to restart the moral instruction period in schools and colleges. There should be counselling of students. The government should take steps to close the liquor shops,” he added. 21 Super Student Monthly

In addition, educational institutions should give importance to

sporting activities amongst students. “While sports inculcates several positive aspects in a person it also helps in draining out the student’s energy which otherwise will get used in aggressive, harmful action. For a 20-year-old youth controlling emotion impulses is difficult. The youth should have a goal-oriented life and work towards it,” Aravind said. She said educational institutions should make their students drain their energies through physical activities. “There is a large number of students who do not play any games - outdoor or indoor. Most of them play games on their mobile phones or computers or watch television. When I was in school/college I used to go out, meet friends and play. But such a thing is not seen today,” M. Karthikeyan, a private sector employee, told Press. Parents should allow their children to go out and play with others of their age-group. Only then children will be children; otherwise they will be child-adults with an ‘I am right’ attitude,” he said. Aravind said the solution to this problem is a long-term one and has to be multi-pronged, but the beginning is always at home and with parents. Small things like orderly parking outside schools by the parents while dropping their wards, observance of traffic regulations, respect for elders at home and fear of god will go a long way in moulding the character of a child, Karthikeyan said. A senior official in the state education department, not wanting to be quoted, told IANS: “The moral values and soft skills are taught as part of a subject now rather than having a separate period.” According to Parent Circle’s Varadarajan the lessons and the teaching methods should be made interesting. Further, these classes become the casualty as the schools are interested in completing the portions.

IIT-Roorkee working on easy-tear packaging, best healthcare models
By Shradha Chettri, Roorkee, Oct 13 : Do you find it frustrating tearing open small ketchup sachets or other air-tight plastic packets? IIT-Roorkee is embarking on an innovative packaging technique that will not only tear easily but be bio-degradable. Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee (IIT-R), situated in the hilly state of Uttarakhand, is also embarking on two other projects - providing the best of healthcare at affordable costs to remote villages in the hill state as well as effective water harvesting and waste water management in the hills. Three centres of excellence are being developed by students and faculty of the premier institution - Centre for Urban Design and Development, Centre for Packaging and Centre for Healthcare Engineering. “I call these centres of excellence because they are very different from the academic entity. It is how we can leverage the strengths of our researchers and then reach society and help them,” IIT-Roorkee director Pradipta Banerji told Press. Elaborating on the packaging technology, Banerji said: “Whenever you have to open ketchup packets it is difficult to tear them and the contents spill out. We are working to develop easy and flexible packaging for the Indian market. It will be a blend of paper pulp and polymer technology.” IIT-Roorkee is the only IIT that has pulp and paper technology and polymer science departments. “The centre will bring together the students and teachers to create bio-degradable innovative and flexible packaging,” he said. October-2013 23 Super Student Monthly

“The Indian market is in dire need of easy packaging technology.” Banerji said he is keen to take the best of healthcare provided by superspeciality hospital chains to remote villages in the state. “We want to deliver the best and affordable healthcare to the remotest villages, like in Mana, which is situated in Chamoli district. Our effort is to be able to deliver the same healthcare which Max Hospital in Dehradun delivers,” said Banerji. The centre will also be working on a design for a hospital setup, complete with proper sanitation and a well-planned structure of construction and hospital management. It would work as a basic design for setting up future large healthcare centres in the state. Researchers from the department of nuclear science, electrical engineering, chemistry and biotechnology will work to develop an effective healthcare model, he said. For optimum water utilization in the hill state, IIT-Roorkee is also working on rain water harvesting, waste water recycling and water management. This would help farmers with irrigating their terrace farms. The Centre for Urban Design and Development will bring together students and teachers of architectural planning, civil and electronics engineering and the departments of earth and earthquake sciences to develop models for waste management, he said. “We are also looking at a couple of villages as pilot sites around which these water management projects will be developed. However, this project will be taken forward only after close interaction with the people of the region so that their wants and aspirations are fulfilled,” he said. The director is hopeful the institution will be able to deliver on the projects.

A delegation lead by teachers of the JNU, Aligarh Muslim university (AMU), and the JNU Students Union will meet USPC chairman D.P.Agarwal. “The government and authorities speak of globalisation, but they exclude foreign languages from the syllabus. As a lot of students studying foreign language appear for the civil service examination, their opportunity will be in jeopardy,” Akbar Chaudhary, JNUSU president, told PRESS.

UGC to Launch an InterUniversity Centre for Teacher Education
In an important move, the University Grants Commission (UGC) has decided to set up an Inter-University Centre of Teacher Education during the current 12th Five Year Plan in order to yield a strong base of quality teachers in Indian Universities, said a top UGC official. To be established at Kakinada in Andhra Pradesh at a cost of Rs 300 crore, the centre would deal with the requirements of south India, said UGC Vice-Chairman, H Devaraj, while addressing the 47th convocation at the Madurai Kamaraj University (MKU).

Similarly, the UGC had introduced Faculty Recharge Program during the 11th Five Year Plan to improve the quality of teachers. As many as 104 teachers were selected under that program.

The Union Ministry of Human Resources Development has also been trying to improve and transform the status of higher education through same track program — Rashtria Uchchatar Shiksha Abhiyan (RUSA). The HRD minister asserted that the institutional mindset has to be transformed in India in order to facilitate the possibility of fostering cross pollination of various faculties and industry interaction that is necessary for the transformation of higher education in the country. MKU Vice-Chancellor said on the occasion that the university had been identified among one of the 15 institutes in the country that facilitate connection to India program for undergraduate students of universities and colleges of USA.

To provide right academic and administrative support to its schools outside India, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has launched a Foreign Schools Cell (FSC) that is based in Delhi. The FSC will help the October-2013 26 Super Student Monthly

board to cater to the requirements of its increasing number of students at foreign schools. The FSC will look after the CBSE affiliated schools in 25 countries worldwide. It will serve as a central contact point for foreign CBSE schools to coordinate and resolve complaints and to look into any requirement of more than 60,000 students at those schools. According to a circular posted on the Board’s website, a Foreign Schools Cell has been created in the Regional Office of Delhi in view of large number of CBSE schools in 25 countries and 60,300 candidates registered from Classes IX to XII. Since a large number of students registered with the Board in foreign schools, the FSC staff will include two superintendent rank officials in addition to the senior CBSE official Sanjay Sachdeva, who currently in-charge of the CBSE-i unit. These officials will deal with the issues regarding affiliation, academics, examinations, publications and coordination. A subsidiary education board associated with CBSE, the CBSEi has a curriculum that focuses on students who plan to go abroad for higher education. Since its inauguration in last year, around 300 schools have applied for CBSE-i curriculum; among them 30 has already started working with the same, said Vineet Joshi, the chairman of the Board. Therefore, the Board speculates that the officials’ experience with CBSE-i will help them in handling FSC’s operation smoothly. The officials will have the responsibility of ensuring that a proper support system is available 24x7 hours for the foreign CBSE schools and they are receiving proper professional advice as well.
