Message from the Vice Chancellor

It gives me great pleasure to note that the Cochin University Union is bringing out a magazine. It comes at a very opportune moment in the history of Kerla's higher education sector. Today Goverments and educational institutions all over the country are increasingly realizing the fact that the educated youth are our country's strength and future. The nurturing of in-born talents and enterepreneurial skills is being taken up by the authorities with a view to ensuring a prosperous framework for the future generations The state government as well as our University is not lagging behind in such activities. The Student Entrepreneurship Scheme annouced by the Kerala Government has been whole-heartedly accepted by the Academic Council and a first year B.Tech student whose start-up company is in the incubation stage has already been granted the benefits under the scheme. I sincerely feel that many more young entrepreneurs can take this opportunity to contribute their entrepreneurial skills towards strengthening the economy. It is true that each an all have many inhibitions that hold them back from realizing their dreams. A hero is an ordinary individual who finds the strength to preserve and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles. I don't think anything else is necessary for anyone to succeed in achieving their ambitions other that perserverance endurance. Failure is not to be feared. I am very happy to know that the present Cochin University Union has done a commendable work in bringing out the best out of each and every student. I wish to the Cochin University Union all the best in their endeavours. Dr. Ramachandran Thekkedath

LOST TO lUST
Manu Melvin School Of Management Studies

From dawn to dusk, they ploughed, planted and sweated their day out. From dusk to dawn, they sang around the fire, shared the crop and slept in peace. With barns full, physic robust and joy ubiquitous, Neanderthal men had nothing more to ask for. Life is boring is a pandemic statement of GeNext. Driven by the five senses, burdened by the future tenses, confined by the inner fences, all actions become non-senses. For them, Matter is over mind, mammon is the idol and Ultimatum is Get lost in the Maya Earth is mean and sky is not the limit Planet lust is in waiting and options are umpteen A push of morphine through the epidermis A pinch of heroine snorted up the nostrils A peg of vodka burnt down the throat. A puff of marijuana that asphyxiate the lungs.. A peaked fake orgasm to give a blackout.. A panicked race through the never ending clicks of the keyboard. A prodigal caught in between the gambling tables of casinos. All in search of the endless ecstasy, mindless mirth, bizarre bliss. But the very next moment, the joy evades , high becomes low Only to leave behind a punctured vein, bleeding nose, a fatty liver, a malign lungs, a bothering syphilis, numbing fingers, shallow pockets and frequent guilt pangs. The fall is imminent From zenith to nadir, it is a matter of seconds. And you perish like the ephemeral fireflies.. Lust.the curse of human race The more you chasethe more it evades like the proverbial mothbeyond your reach Wise men realize Kingdom of god is within Dont seek happiness in things since the most precious things in the world are intangible.. Space is an illusion, earth is the reality It is time to return to our roots Where all stayed grounded. Felt connected Let our bliss stem from the deep channels of nature and mother earth

THE INDiA-CHiNA RAcE: WHO wiLL EMErGE VictOriOUS?

Manas Ranjan School of Engineering

rom problematic human rights situation in its territory and Indian-border incursions, to its fierce economic policies, China has been quite a news maker for past a few years. India, being its immediate neighbour and a tough rival in the race of becoming the next global superpower, is now in its constant scrutiny. Although there has not been any serious attack on India from China since 1962, there has been continued suspicion of Chinas geo-political motives in the country. This is the reason why the much touted concept of Russia- India- China strategic triangle could not go beyond theory. China not supporting Indias ambition of acquiring a United Security Council membership is another reason for bitterness in the relationship. If we leave the broader issues of conflict, we have several other issues which mark the soured relation between the countries, be it Chinas claim on Arunachal and Sikkim, its constant military support to Pakistan or, Indias shelter to the Tibetans. But now, as both the Asian giants are projected to grow rapidly in the period of 2010-50 and, with the fact of shifting balance of power from the West to the East, we have to see how the two countries manage both cooperation and competition in the coming years. Both India and China are populous countries and have been among the ancient civilisations. Despite few similarities, they are considered as worlds most diverse nations. Although both the countries are the front runners of global economy and are on the verge of becoming great powers, there are stark differences between the two. If we only consider economical facts, China seems to be far superior to India. In terms of exchange rates, China holds the third position in world as compared to Indias 12th position. Chinas GDP is six times larger than that of India. Even in terms of per capital GDP, India lags far behind. The other factors like unemployment, inflation, healthcare, sanitation, water management, education etc. are not as prominent an issue as they are in India. Infrastructure in China, undoubtedly, is above par as compared to that of India. Infrastructure is instrumental in building a middle class, a stable middle class builds a stable nation which, in terms, becomes capable of holding the super-power status. Given its authoritarian regime, China doesnt face any hurdles such as; public debate, property rights or legal actions while decision making. Its capable of exploiting its political and economic resources to create impressive economic feats. But authoritarian regimes dont have the history of holding their power for long. China might achieve the global power status earlier than India but, with its gagged press and ever degenerating human-rights situations, how long itll be capable of holding it, is a matter of question. After the economic reforms of 1991, India quadrupled its GDP, achieving a whopping 9 per cent growth rate. But China having pre-empted the process a decade earlier, made a great profit and thus, has achieved a higher growth rate. Unlike a drained out country like India which, was under British control for almost two centuries, China doesnt have any colonial past and hence had enough resources at its disposal for development. India, also with its democratic institution supported by its civil society, faces several obstacles in any single policy decision making. The 19

stubborn land owners and a huge population to feed, India has a shoddy infrastructure which has to evolve a lot in order to catch up with China. Despite all the negative points against China, if we go by the trends, India has strong chances to give the world a reliable and long lasting superpower. A countrys superpower status can be determined by factors such as; its population, productive economic order, infrastructure, defence mechanisms, technological potentialities, trend manpower resources and political stability. All the countries which achieved its superpower status in the latter half of the 20th century, had all the mentioned characteristics and, the most important thing is that they all were democracies. What gives India an advantage over China is its democratic set up and openness to external cultures. Despite the caste and communal politics being played inside the country and various separatist and secessionist groups raising their heads, India has an open and vibrant society which is ready for the change. India is ready to take on the world stage as the first large multiethnic, multi religious, economically powerful and culturally vibrant democracy. It also has the potential to play a key role in the great political struggles in the world of future. If India focuses on some of the shortcomings, such as; national health programme and public education, internal security problems, political stability, scientific and technological capacities, cooperation with neighbouring countries and the wider aspect of globalisation, the goal cannot be far behind. Where China is supposed to achieve its superpower status by 2010; given its advantage in many fields as compared to India, India is said to have it by 2050. But in terms of ideological, geo-strategic, demographic and socio-cultural characteristics, India can be clearly seen as the legitimate and logical contender of the status which, it could be able to hold firmly, for long.

Drizzle ! O drizzle ! Thou art the tears of them celestical angels When they feel for the fall of good men; Thou show their emotions when they feel, helplessly, The death of the starving innocents, in million. Drizzle ! O drizzle ! Thou art like the magic liquid of the gods; The powerful tonic to the lone and tired travelers; As they pass through the mighty vast deserts; With their waning life at stake Drizzle ! O drizzle ! Thou act as a strong magnet that brings together Young lovers under the same umbrella And holding each others hands; thank you For thy timely arrival to make their day special. Drizzle ! O drizzle ! Thou art an unpredictable visitor, For oft you come alone and leave back No scar, or herald thy noisy friend, the storm To leave behind a ruined raped landscape. Drizzle ! O drizzle ! Thou give life to those depressed souls; As they sit unaccompanied on slow summer evenings. Thou art an inspiration to those surrendering souls, as you showHow to survive life without killing or being maimed ourselves.

New generation films


: apprehensions of a common man

Vikas R International School of Photonics

he birth and development of the film genre unlike all other fields of art was the most quick and stunning. It easily found space in the daily lives of people all around the world so effectively, as its language of pictures was simple enough for anyone to comprehend. It was gradual, but the change was effective enough for the world to portray itself in reality and bring to people the stunning and real pictures of what truly took place around. It has been a century since Indians experienced the marvels of films. Since then it has been a medium of mass appeal, satisfying the needs of all sections of common people. They hailed some, hated some other, and even threw away some. It has revolutionized the human thought process and in a way the perception of society towards its culture. It acted as a mirror, provoked the viewers to rethink its very existence and its significance. Malayalam film industry, thanks to the legendary effort from J C Daniel, emerged in spite of all difficulties the man faced, in the later 1920s. The earlier years of films saw stories realized from epics and literary works of the then significant and respected writers. Truly, many classics emerged during that period. The arrival of talented and brilliant scriptwriters in to the arena improved the class and stuff in the films and our films started getting noticed and recognized all over the world. It has been only few years since the term new generation became so popular among the circles of film reviewers/ media/ and the common public in Kerala. The term has been extremely popularized with the discussions and debates generated over a wide scenario, thanks to the flood of vibrant media that we have here nowadays. The actual origin of this new generation or rather new genre in the Malayalam film industry dates
COCHIN UNIVERSITY UNION MAGAZINE 2012-2013

back to early 1980s, when a school of multitalented persons emerged as script writers and directors. They unraveled the subtle human emotions in to poetical language of films by their lustrous skills in portraying the characters. Such a new wave emergence got crowd pleasing till the initial period of 1990s. After the gifted works of the 80s and the 90s, Malayalam Cinema faced such tragedy of deja vu themes and reprise. The new wave got spoiled due to unprecedented rise of commercial films which wereinvincible superhuman- centric. The industry again got inside the walls of feudal families and their vengeance stories with nothing to cherish as freshness, in the viewpoint of an ordinary viewer.The storiesof social relevance, which became concentrated only in the art house films, in which thestory appeared in highly intellectual way, restricted them only to film festivals. The most important scenario which has emerged in the recent times is that, the bridge between

the commercial and the art house films got narrowed. That demonstratedsome brilliant possibilities of executing a rather conventional story line with aesthetic

values also been acknowledged in an unprecedented manner. This concept is what I prefer to call as a new generation film, rather than the distorted opinions from many parts as, the films with explicit adult content in terms of the language it speaks, the visuals it show, and the stories resembling films from other parts of the world.This article will try to address these issues in the successive paragraphs.As a result of the incorporation of fresh narration schemes, which we sometimes term as neo noir, the films have been received well in the box office and among the critics. Fresh and unusual themes started appearing without considering the presumed star value of a particular actor. The realistic portrayals of death, blood, conceit, adultery, jealousy, cunning people, unfaithfulness, sorrow, all have found places of high importance in the modern themes. The media and exhaustive viewer community prefers to call these as new generation, mostly because of the people working in these films. True, they are considerably younger in the film industry, and they speak the language which the majority of keralites- the youth- speaks, and so there is a natural tendency to call these as new generation films. However, it is to be noted that, it is not the person behind the films, but the theme and the execution of the film makes it to be treated as a new contribution, as what had happened in the early 1980s. The motif got totally refreshed from the pattern that has been followed until then. Finally, it seems that fresh themes are winning over star-driven tales. The background of the story also went from alluring simplicity of villages and the domination of feudal landlords to the real life of present day man, the metros and its unseen lives of the people there. These films explore the emotions of the urban Malayali, his dreams, his foibles, his highs and lows, with realistic approach supported by brilliant and exciting narration. This doesnt mean that only the stories with urban touch have made the impact, the best example being the case of the simple movie Ordinary. The frame of reference and the perspective totally changed, the so called heroes turned out to be

those from marginalized sections, and the films started speaking the apprehensions of the mass. In terms of dialects also, the scenario has undergone a radical metamorphosis, characters have been speaking their own ways introducing dialect diversity among the various characters of a same film. There were some totally new experimental ventures, in terms of narration, and some of them really clicked at the box office. The scenario has changed in such a way that story and the portrayal and in that way, the craft, turned out to be the real hero. The real life depiction of the metro youth has raised the eyebrows of some noted personalities towards this classof films. The use of filthy comments, candid adult content, and the flirting girls in pubs and bars, dress codes of characters, all became hot topics of debate. The fact is that these are in our films because it has been in our society itself, since the past few years. The arguments have no basis unless the films infringe a new culture to us, and force us to adopt. Instead, these films have not upheld any new doctrine or conviction, but have intuitively probed the current society with extreme tenacity. The lucid adult content and use of offensive words and conversations has to be seen with a realistic approach. The stark realities of poverty, struggles, pain, degrading world, withering relations, all bring us out of our bubble of fantasy reminding us that the world out is as worse as these. Gone are the days when the heroes had to be handsome, virtuous and invincible. The new cream of people has no such a priori

concepts in film making.The protagonists of today are the womanizer, the fat and dwarf guys, the scrap seller, the troubled police officer, the chilled out yoyo dude with no head for money, the cross-dresser, the peppy college boy, auto driver, cleaning worker, drunkard essentially those who realistically reflect the times.The focus is not just on the hero, but also on hard-hitting performances as well. Viewers started seeking the substance, and the stuff in the product, they valued the money spent for viewing it. It has resulted in the new originality incorporated in films in terms of visualization and the total appearance of film changed. Once the kind of discussionsthat these films demand emerges, it will have a useful impact on the society in its overall advance. They are indeed volatile. They need proper attention. The craft has to be appreciated, along with the skills that realize it. The financial background of the industry became safer in terms of the success rates of the films. Most of the films coming out in the recent times were made on relatively low budget and hence most of them could easily regain back the expenditure. 2012 has been a spectacular year for the Malayalam movie industry with over 120 films released and almost half of them securing the finances back. It was argued once that the audience drifted away from theatres because they found nothing new in those. But the situation has totally changed now, owing to the change the current cream of technicians has brought about.. The financial success also starts the ball rolling for a trend: to depend heavily on the satellite rights of the stars. This has to be seriously analyzed, and some of the commercial stuffs grossed a lot only due to this factor. On the contrast, the possibility of getting a decent satellite right for a particular star may also motivate a producer to start off a promising and freshventure. The finance is still an unavoidable consideration in the case of a small industry like Malayalam, and hence it has a definite role to play. With the emergence of greater number of users of internet, it is now relatively easy to access films of other languages, and the section of people
COCHIN UNIVERSITY UNION MAGAZINE 2012-2013

having such an interface has increased over the last few years. Film is now treated as a serious medium and is a source of great enthusiasm for the youth. This has resulted in meticulous analysis of each and every film released. Naturally this has created a long list of allegations on plagiarism in the content, in the music, shots, scenes, theme and so on. It is clear that under the guise of new experiments one cannot straightaway go and counterfeit something from another creation. Nevertheless, we have seen fraudulent works, and some of them havebecome huge successes too. But the real success comes in the sincere attempt of a crew to produce a really marvelous art in all the aspects of creation. There can indeed be some inspirations for every artist. If you keep on searching the wide spectrum of world film, it is definite that you find one similarity or the other. A film holds its beauty in its overall inception and novelty that it upholds to all sections of viewers. It is not good to tear it off scene by scene and argue an inspiration from a source. As famous Malayalam author M P Narayanapillai (remember Parinamam, his magnum opus) had once pointed out there are only 14 plots, whole literature is a play between those. In all likelihood, the debate will go on for the coming year as well, especially on internet social networking sites, which have become the main arena for marketing and reviewing films. This spirit has to be kept up, seeking more and more higher achievements in terms of the class and kind of films that we make, to make it a wonder in all the ways. Let us hope for that.

Wherever I go, you are there Everywhere I took, I see your face When the mighty wind flows on Me, I feel your lovely presence Slipping down the core of my heart
Devika. R CUCEK

Whenever I go, I see your Tearful face looking Me in the eyes with a Loving, still suspicious look I still blame myself for it! It's been an year since You left me alone here Still I can feel you following Me like a black endless shadow. Everything I move I can feel Your onyx black eyes on me But when I took back, all I can see is a long black shadow It is mine, I dont know It is your , yes I think so I still cant forgive myself For what I have done. Remember that sunny noon When we, our shadows were Just some mere inches apart Yours got wiped away Leaving mine in endless melancholy I finally can forgive myself, Now you also should too I have to get back on track, Feel the sunrays warming Up my face, the entire me All I can say is, I know You can hear me Wherever you are Give my life back to me Stop following me Like an endless shadow

YOU FOLLOW ME LIKE AN ENDLESS

Social Networking sites and the Virtual World of Youth..!!! Rajesh Rajagopal Department of economics Is this the real World...???
Let us face it We are in the age of Virtual world. Social network is everywhere. Man made social networking sites and technically he should be changing it according to his needs but the youth today change according to the social networking site. But without much hesitation we can say that social networking sites and social media has revolutionized the world, bringing us closer than ever before, making life easier than it ever was. Our world revolves around Facebook, Twitter and Youtube and sites like that. Social-networking sites have taken the world by a storm leading to nothing less than a revolution. These social medias performed a pivotal role in popularising, organizing and bringing mass appeal to the revolt against autocratic nature of incumbent rulers creating revolutionary wave of demonstrations and protests that took place in the Arab world. Youth played a very determinant role in these uprising against the monarchs popularly known's as Arab Spring. It provided platform among the citizens of US for voicing their protest and share common views against the unequal benefits given to corporate at the time when the economy as a whole was reeling with low growth, increasing inequality in terms of income and high unemployment figures ultimately resulting in the occupy wall street movement in late 2011 and in 2012. India too witnessed large scale protest by youth against the alleged corruption scandals by the central government and increase in rape cases in which social networking sites played an active role in mobilising the public. The influence and growth of internet is immense in India since the new millennium. In terms of harnessing the power of Internet, about 75 per cent of our country's youth prefers social media over phone calls to communicate. Data reveals that the rural-urban divide in terms of access to technology is less in the case of access to these social networking sites. Indias post-millennial genera-

tion, those people born in 1996 and afterwards, seem set to overtake the preceding millennial generation, taking communication over social networks like Facebook and Twitter and instant messaging modes like Whatsapp to newer extremes. Taking all the positives the virtual world has created, there still remain a lot of concerns which have been voiced about the ever increasing influence of social networking sites in our lives. One major issue that has been overlooked is the changing mind-set of the youth due to the social networking sites. The youngsters opine that social network sites as a boon because it has kept friends in different parts of the world in touch with each other. It is true that social networking sites are of great advantage to all of us but a boon becomes a bane when it is being overused or misused and that is what we need to understand. We cannot orbit around social networks, we need to prioritize and that is what we dont do. Relying too much on the social media by the youth have reduced the interaction in the real world social space, this may not affect us so much now but we will face problems in the days to come. The adolescence years shape our outlook, our

So when we grow up in a world where our popularity is directly proportional to the number of likes and the haaawt comments we get on our Photoshop-enhanced profile picture and live with people constantly competing for the coveted title of the king/queen of the virtual world, it is bound to have a profound influence and impact on the psyche of an entire generation per se. The time and energy we spend on creating our brand and its floating value on these social networking sites is a standing testimony to the awakening of the narcissist in us. At any hangout or get-together more time is spent on clicking snaps and updating the virtual world on whats going on, rather than enjoying the event. The photos are uploaded within an hour, and there begins the flood of Likes and comments. The social networking sites and the culture they have created is thus a breeding ground for a vain, self-obsessed younger generation. We forget that we chose the people we want to interact with on these sites. So the validity of the opinions on these sites need to be reconsidered before we get cozy in a shell of false sense of unwanted self-importance and self pride, but this is knowingly and conveniently forgotten by most of us. On the other hand the time, energy and clicks you spend on getting that perfect picture all goes away to the drain when your friends picture gets more attention. On one hand when vanity is on rise, some tend to lose their self-esteem owing to the lack of online popularity. Since when have we become so petty that our virtual world takes over our real life? Are we that silly to let these things affect us? Another aspect is the loss of private space. For todays generation, things that were considered personal a generation before, are all public. Status updates, wall post and tweets proclaim about every move we make, every step we take and every relation we make or break. We are ourselves violating the sanctity of our personal space in an attempt to keep up with the current mania of publicizing intimate details of our lives for a few minutes of attention among our 'friends' or 'so called friends' in the virtual world. How healthy a trend is this is something we need to contemplate. Fortunately or unfortunately I am also part of this virtual

space in which the world is moving now. So please don't take this as a lifeless, haughty, wake up call or lamenting of someone who is against to or not accustomed to these social netwoking sites; this is just an account of a youth watching the world around me possessed and submerged by the 'spirit' of social networking. This is just my take on the transition these sites have brought in to the culture, mindset and outlook of me and my generation. Years later, looking back at our teen years, do we want to remember spending time bothering about an elusive world where we are judged on how we portray ourselves to be? Do we want to see ourselves as a vain, self-centred people fussing about the pettiest of things, totally detached to the bigger and more important issues of the world? Do we want to be unacquainted youth, ignorant about the world and doing nothing constructive and needy? Do we want to be individuals where virtual space is the limit in conveying our views, opinions and our commitment to society? I am sure deep inside each one of us would rather aspire to see ourselves doing something productive towards our career, family, friends, society, and eventually the world for a better tomorrow. We can make use of this virtual space and employ it for a better life and a better future. It should be used to connect, stay in touch easily, share views, opinions and not to waste time on. World witnessed many changes and transition in terms of nature and behaviour of human beings from the eve of evolution to the present day through various ages-all turning points in the history of human civilization. . And now we are considered as the most sophisticated piece of human being ever existed with almost all possible comforts and acheivements. In this virtual age being a social networking individual there is every possible chance to be an introvert because we reduce our comfort zone to making friends virtually which leads us in becoming more of a virtual social network creature than a real social animal. How should the virtual age etch itself in the history of mankind depends on us- And the choice is ours now! The old sayings always holds true in such cases Too much of anything is bad.

The first commandment for every good explorer is that an expedition has two points: the point of departure and the point of arrival. If your intention is to make the second theoretical point coincide with the actual point of arrival, don't think about the means -- because the journey is a virtual space that finishes when it finishes, and there are as many means as there are different ways of 'finishing.' That is to say, the means are endless. Ernesto Guevara, The Motorcycle Diaries: Notes on a Latin American Journey 56

BEYOND EMPTINESS
Death shall not bind thy For thou The true soldier of destiny Upon them cast thy shadow ordeal With thy head held high Unmistaken Unhealed Undestroyable pains within thy pale skin Shall wipe thy blood within itself Engulfing the enchanted woods Beneath the hidden walls Desperate days shall remain within For revenge is the only sweetest pain Leading the emptiness within To fill up with the desires Beyond Emptiness The day shall come when I shall reign The unrevealed kingdom of heathen Unleashed forever from the depths What that remains shall remain ForeverBeyond Depths


Nikitha Devadasan MCA Department

Immortal Pain
Shaheera Saidalavi School of legal studies The wind was rough which tore, The leaf from its parent tree, Heaven alone does not how blessed My early years have been with thee. Thy absence has caused unbearable pain, That may not heal ever again Thu presence on earth is all I seek Did thou really have to leave? Farther apart, thee grew everyday Death is the end of the life, they say And then, thee slowly closed thy eyes, To run to another life, away from mine. Now, when I hoped Id sing, My heart strikes an untuned string. Please sincerely forgive my soul, If I have caused thee any pain. Stay for a little more while For I want to see thee here by my side

My

unfinished

journey
Anonymus SOE

une 22nd 2011, was the day when finally my journey via CUSAT begun. Before coming to the college, I was really very excited to commence this milestone. Unlike other aspirants, I didnt have much anticipations and dreams. When I first stepped to the college, its dilapidated infrastructure and atrocious management had appalled me from within. My present status says that I am not a very bright student today, but definitely I wont say that I dont have a colourful life here. My actual beautiful journey with the college started with our day of orientation where a few chief guests were called to deliver a lifetime speech. Two very commendable lines which had inspired me a lot in my journey is what I am jotting down here. A magnificent quote by our chief guest was this our soul is like a compass, it always knows its correct path. It totally depends on us which directions are we choosing for ourselves. Apart from this one other fact which stirred me was that, he gave a total count for our overall academic courses and said that after the completion of our engineering courses, we would successfully devote our 17 lakh 28 thousand seconds of our life but always remember that we will be given just 10 minutes to sum up all our experiences and achievements of 20 years of academic sessions. So make your path in such a way that people would love to follow the footsteps you leave. Open to the floor, he also counselled the students. Taking the advantage of the opportunity given, I had mentioned a few contradictions to his guidelines, which later he had explained well. What I forgot was I was being noticed by thousands of students, parents and faculty members over there. Immediately as soon as my question round got over I was called by one of the teachers, who turned out to be the head of department, of IT,SOE. I was very horrified and was expecting to be chided. But soon my horrendous feelings changed to my stupendous moments when I came to know that he had called me from the crowd to deliver a vote of thanks to the students of legal studies who will give a speech on anti-ragging. I went unprepared on the stage and spoke with all the guts. I was applauded on the first day of my college. Later I came to know that a lot of people know me through my speech. They dont know my name, but

yes, I am recognised. It was not very late that I started participating in most of the fields I found myself fit for! Even though I was a complete stranger to this new state, I devoted my free time to an organisation for teaching the poor kids which was entirely a great experience to be a part of good cause. I find a lot of students in CUSAT, complaining about the college, scopes, opportunities, activities, etc. etc. I would like to ask you all, what does our college actually lack in? If you ask this question to yourself, you will immediately get the answer, its just one thing, it lacks your support. Had we been supporting and respecting our college, it would have a very different scene! As a student of the same college I personally have achieved a lot, be it Sargam, Vipanchika, Green Room, Munnar Adventure Trip, Dishna or any other fest! I have got an opportunity to participate and win the love and respect of many. Apart from that I am a very active person from my department. Be it magazines, social work, the projects (apart from my courses) or any other activity I have received many opportunity to represent my college at various levels. All I want to convey is, there are many scopes and vacancies available equally for all of us outside our doors. All what you need is to hunt for them and find solutions rather than complaining. When racism is no more legal in the world, then why do we distinguish on the grounds of being native and non-native. In reality no such things actually prevail in our vicinity, its just our mindset. I have just finished half my journey in this college and what I have been getting is no less than lifetime achievements to me because I have chosen to live every present moment of my life without quenching my past and without procrastinating my happiness and success to my future. Yes, I am not a very brilliant student, but I know anyone with a positive attitude towards life will create wonders in this world. I have learnt this from CUSAT! This is just a beginning, I have yet to unveil several presents from the uncovered miles of my journey.

Just A Thought
Joshwin M Ashokan CUCEK
The greatest stories are those that resonates our beginnings and intuit our endings, our mysterious origins and our numinous destinies, and dissolve them both into one. Ben Okri, Nigerian Author, 1959 There is so much to be said about the beginning of time, of life, of us. In such a short space, it would be futile to do so. Thus I dedicate this editors note to a personal inspiration. Ill let you guess where it comes from: From space, it seems an abstraction- a magicians trick on darkened stage. And from this distance one might never imagine that it is alive. It first appeared in the sea almost four billion years ago in the form of single celled life. In an explosion of life spanning millions of years, natures first multi cellular organisms began to multiply . . . and then it stopped. Four hundred and forty million years ago, a great mass extinction would kill off nearly every species on the planet leaving the vast oceans decimated and empty. Slowly, plants began to evolve, then insects, only to be wiped out in the second great mass extinction upon the Earth. The cycle repeated again and again. Reptiles emerging, independent of the sea only to be killed off. Then dinosaurs, struggling to life along with the first birds, fish and flowering plants their decimations, Earths fourth and fifth great extinctions. Only 100,000 years ago, Homo sapiens appeared man. From cave paintings to the Bible to Columbus and Apollo 11, we have been a tireless force upon the earth and off cataloguing the natural world as it unfolds to us. Rising to a world population of six billion people, all descended from that original single cell that first spark of life. But for all our knowledge, what no one can say for certain is what or who ignited the original spark. Is there a plan, a purpose or a reason for our existence? Will we pass, as those before us, into oblivion; into the sixth extinction that scientists warn is already in progress? Or will the mystery be revealed through a sign, a symbol, a revelation? Whose idea was this? Who had the audacity for such invention? And the reason? Were we part of the plan 10 billion years ago? Are we born only to die? To be fruitful and multiply and replenish the earth before giving way to our generations? If there is a beginning, must there be an end? We burn like fries in our time only to be extinguished. To surrender to the elements eternal reclaim. Matter and gas will this all end in one day? Life no longer passing to life, the earth left barren like the stars above, like the cosmos. Will the hand that lit the flame let it burn down? Let it burn out? Could we, too, become extinct? Or if this fire of life living inside us is meant to go on, who decides? Who tends the flames? Can he reignite the spark even as it grows cold and weak? Food for thought? I leave you with these words. Have a beautiful 2013. May it be a year filled with purpose and self-revelations. Shalom, salaam, ohm shanti.

DEPARTMENT OF YOUTH WELFARE

Dr. P K Baby Director Department of Youth Welfare

Providence for a vibrant campus: Department of Youth Welfare


Department of Youth Welfare is a formal platform in the University to design and implement youth policy which includes the issues related to motivation, participation, promotion and socio-economic and cultural settings within which young people grow up. The Department is acting as a supporting force for the students and youth community to epitomize their academic excellence through doing and learning. The Department was established from the beginning of the University with an aim to promote cultural and social life among the university community under the headship of Director. The core values of the Department are defined in 4 Cs- Confidence, Competence, Creativity and Compassion. During the last few years, we tried our best to organize maximum programmes and bring leading personalities like Kumar Shahani and Pt. Tarun Bhattacharya in the campus. In the last academic year, we bagged proved ourselves as premier in arts and cultural events. To quote Luccock, No one can whistle a symphony. It takes a whole orchestra to play it. Working with people is all about success. We would like to thank University Authorities, Members of the Syndicate, Officers of the University, Teachers and administrative staff, office bearers and members of Students Union for providing invaluable support throughout the year. I am happy to brief a report ofthe major activities organised by the Department during the last academic year.

Monsoon Madness: Monsoon Camp


Department of Youth Welfare in association with Department of Forests and Wildlife, Government of Kerala has organised a monsoon camp monsoon madness for selected 40 students of the University from 13th to 15th July, 2012 at Chimmony wildlife sanctuary, Thrissur. Students from various University departments, constituent colleges and recognised institutions of Cochin University participated in the programme.The primary goal of the camp was to provide the students with an opportunity to immerse them into nature and to get a better sense of understanding and appreciation about the resources and deep beauty of nature.The camp provided the fundamentals for improvement, sportsmanship, leadership, and teamwork. The team consisting of 40 contingents started from the campus at 12.30 PM on 13.07.2013, Friday and reached Chimmony at 3.30 PM. Established in 1984, the sanctuary with an area of about 85.067 km2 is on the Western slopes of theNelliyampathy Hills. The highest peak in sanctuary is Punda peak (1116 m). Along with the neighboringPeechi-Vazhani Wild life Sanctuary, it forms a continuous protected area of 210 km2.The headquarters of this sanctuary is at Echippara which is 28 kms away from Amballoor village in the north direction. This area was dense forest 200 years ago. Though scientific felling and implementation of forest laws had been introduced, depletion of forest resource could not be supplanted. However, present protective measures show the signs of improvement.The first official session started with an ice breaking and self-introduction of the team. The second day started with a trekking into the forest area. Forest guards accompanied the team. The team walked approximately 20 kms through the forest. Various sessions wereon environmental issues and its management were led by Dr. M Bhasi, Dr. P.K. Baby, Adv.Dhanya, JatheenJathavethan, Mr.Abbobackar and Shajikumar.A film, HOME, Directed by photographer / environmentalist YannArthus- Bertrand was screened on the second day night. It was a unique film that approaches the current debate about climate change from a whole new angle, giving the viewer the opportunity to see for themselves how our earth is changing. Following breakfast, after the lunch, on the third day, the camp wrapped up and the team started journey back with a lot of concern and experiences.
