Dreams can come true

The parliamentary elections for the 15th Lok Sabha are over. Youth power is soaring high. 82 MPs
are under 40 year of age. The poll results did not come as a surprise for many, considering the
influence of the young leaders and impact of country's 51% voters, who are younger than 25.
'Young India' is going to affect how the country functions. It's a great thing that currently with the
youth power that India has, we can do wonders. The country has indeed taken a progressive turn.
Chanda Kochhar's taking over from K.V. Kamath on 1 May 2009 as the Chief Executive Officer
(CEO) and Managing Director (MD) of ICICI Bank, the second largest lender in the country is an
assurance that the young can be trusted for bigger responsibilities.
T V Raman, a blind computer scientist, with an M.Sc. in computer science from IIT-Bombay, an
MS in Computer science and a PhD in applied mathematics from cornell University is radiating
hope and light in the lives of those who can not see, by his innovations, having made electronic
gadgets and web services more user friendly. Instead of asking how something should work if a
person can not see, he explains he prefers to ask, “How should some thing work when the user is
not looking at the screen.”
Varlaxmi Pillai (21), who grew up watching her mother work 12 hour a day as a domestic help is
her self, a personification of persistence, patience and endurance and has earned a scholarship to
the University of Westminster (UK) to make her dreams come true.
Raj Kamal Jha, born in Bihar, did his B. Tech. in mechanical engineering, traversed the journey
from IIT Kharagpur to a successful journalist and finally to a writer (in form of the Managing
Editor of the Indian Express).
It will be a true tribute to Technocrat Rajeev Motwani if we whole heartedly dedicate ourselves to
our committed goal of preparing students for technological education. The sudden demise(5 June
09) of the much loved IIT Kanpur alumnus and Stanford University Professor, at a young age of
47, who mentored and backed such sparkling and well storied silicon valley companies as Google
and Paypal, has sent the global tech community into gloom. Sergei Brin, founder of Google wrote
in a condolence that ended with a stirring epitaph, "Today whenever you use a piece of technology,
there is a good chance, little bit of Rajeev Motwani is behind it."
Let's get inspired:
“All the great men became great not by a sudden flight,
They while their comrades slept, toiled day and night”.

A message of hope

“Plan better and achieve more”, is the theory all professors of management and administration follow. But even after planning well, many of
us find we fail to achieve success. A plan can deliver its promised blessings only when the plan is executed with promptitude. To act
promptly means to work with regularity, poise and system. Resonance did emerge victorious by occupying 1617 seats in the Indian Institutes
of Technology. Anvit Singh Tawar captured All India Rank 9 which expounds the hard sweat and panting toil of the bonhomie of student and
faculty members of Resonance.
All intelligent students who have scored well in IIT-JEE were throughout sensible optimists in their life. Studiously they all took reasonable
care to avoid at least repetition of their past mistakes that they committed in their Daily Practice Problems, Sheets and Tests, and they were
wakeful enough to learn from their errors.
A student customized approach is instrumental to get students procure good results and with the inculcation of the fundamental mantra
which says 'Our strength should perennially cascade from our realization of the immense resources that lie untapped in us', faculty
members at Resonance motivated and boosted the morale high up of the students. One such student, Rajat Khandelwal, who with glowing
poise and regardless of language barrier proved himself by achieving All India Rank 79 and also leveraged the batch of Resonance which is
exclusively meant for students of Hindi Medium. A new-fangled stride taken by Resonance in 2007 of forming separate batches for the
students of Hindi Medium brought in 161 selections in IIT-JEE 2009 that represents 117.56% growth in Hindi Medium selections as
compared to 74 selections in 2008.
From the various contact programmes of Resonance, 1617 students have hit the merit list of the Joint Entrance Examination (IIT-JEE) 2009.
From the list of total selected students, 855 are from the regular Classroom Contact Programme whereas 762 are from Distance Learning
Programme. There has been 39.70% growth in classroom result with 855 selections in 2009 as compared to 612 selections in 2008.
Performances of Girl students have also come up with flying colors registering 63% growth by 132 girl selections in 2009 as compared to 81
selections in 2008.
The various centres of Resonance (including Kota) have also produced noteworthy results within their short duration of establishment.
From Kota (739) Jaipur (47), Bhopal (18), Delhi (19), Lucknow (13), Nagpur (5) and Kolkata (2) and Mumbai (10) centres, a total 855
students have succeeded in cracking JEE 2009 other than Distance Learning Programme.
At VICTORY, our felicitation function for JEE qualified students, I felt extremely happy to see the young buds (IIT-JEE 2009 qualified
students) blooming with a vigor to excel and achieve their dream so lofty and worthy . I was overwhelmed to see how these students bring
joy not only to themselves, their parents and grandparents but also to the faculty members.
To conclude, I wish all my students a grand and a prosperous life and at the same time I welcome the new students to get prepared for a road
that leads to their dreams.
“Be prompt” is the certain and only way to success. This means, we should dispose off our daily routine work promptly and carry it through
week after week, month after month, to maintain the success order of the world.

When dreams are realized and turned into reality,
Success like a blue streak the joy it emits out is remarkable and
unfathomable. The enriching history of
has become a Resonance reveals the parampara of inevitable
success which has flowed down from one sibling
to another and has become a trend setter which is
tradition at Resonance clearly evident from the below mentioned facts.

The sense of satiety and tremendous happiness on the countenances of Anvit Singh Tawar's parents
made the entire environment spell bound and by going in the retrospective, Dr. Devendra Singh Tawar
(Anvit's father),who is a doctor by profession, traced the success journey of his sons, Ankit and Anvit
and pronounced loud the hand which immensely contributed in the success saga of their entire family
by making them feel proud parents and that name was none other than Resonance. He stated that
Ankit Tawar procured All India Rank 3569 in the year 2005 and subsequently joined IIT Kharagpur and
completed his M.Sc in Integrated Economics. He then with proud said that he did not have any
apprehensions about getting his second son Anvit associated with Resonance again and lo!
Resonance proved itself again by repeating the triumph of his elder son as his second son Anvit
fetched an outstanding All India Rank 9 and not only earned the name and fame for his family but for
Resonance as well. Mr. and Mrs. Tawar were honored by Mr. R.K. Verma, Managing Director,
Resonance, with a shawl and a memento of Goddess Saraswati.

The grandparents of Vaibhav Gupta, who achieved All India Rank 54 in 2009, knew no bounds of joy
when their grandson was being felicitated by the chief guest, Ajay Goyal. The parents of Vaibhav
Gupta expressed their gratefulness for Resonance and its faculty members without whom their
sons couldn't have been the individuals with a difference. According to them Resonance not only
contributed in the success of Vaibhav but also in the success of his elder brother Gaurav Gupta,
when he secured All India Rank 564 in the year 2007. He passed out from the Indian Institute of
Technology Madras with B.Tech in Electrical and Micro Electronics. Vaibhav's father, Mr. Dinesh
Gupta, is an Assistant Manager in the bank of Rajasthan. Vaibhav's grandparents and parents were
honored with a shawl and a memento of Goddess Saraswati by Mr. R.K.Verma.

The milieu at VICTORY (the felicitation function for IIT-JEE qualified students 2009) became more
inspiring as it was blessed by the presence of grandparents and parents of 2009 JEE qualified
students. Mr. and Mrs. Tiwari also cherished their precious memories of the victory of their two
daughters and one son (all are the students of Resonance) as all of them emerged victorious in
cracking JEE and subsequently entering IITs. Their elder son, Gaurav Tiwari, passed out in the year
2003 from Resonance with All India Rank 742 and then entered the portals of IIT Kharagpur. Garima
Tiwari passed out in the year 2006 from Resonance with All India Rank 896 and then joined IIT
Mumbai. Purvi Tiwari, following the victorious trajectory of her siblings attained All India Rank 7885 in
2009. Mr. Tiwari and his father, who also remained the former principal of govt. school,
Ramganjmandi, from where Mr. R.K. Verma also did his schooling, were honored with a shawl and a
memento of Goddess Saraswati. They also mentioned that Resonance and its faculty members were
pivotal in bringing, to their family, the incredible happiness and a sense of achievement to see all their

No boundaries, no constraints, no limitations can stop a heart so pure and a mind so focused to
emerge successful in achieving the unconquerable dreams. And it did happen with Puneet and
Manik Jindal who migrated to Kota from Punjab with their father Mr. Surendra Kumar Jindal, a
businessman. Mr. and Mrs. Jindal were honoured by Mr. R.K.Verma with a shawl and a memento
of Goddess Saraswati. Mr. Surendra Kumar articulated his heart-felt gratitude for Resonance as it
proved to be a significant contributor in the success of his children. He said that he holds
Resonance in high esteem as it made his family's dream come true. Puneet Jindal cracked IIT-JEE
2006 with All India Rank of 910. He then went to IIT-Guwahati and took the branch of Computer
Science. Manik Jindal, following the footsteps of his elder brother cracked JEE 2009 with All India
Rank 2164.
More Gravitas in Edu-Culture at Resonance than the slew of awards it has won over the years.

Mighty plans of action can be undertaken only by equally mighty individuals. An individual is mighty according to the amount of energy and concentration of mind, he
can bring into his undertaking with confidence in himself and faith in the goal he has chosen to reach. This self-confidence can be generated and continuously
maintained even in the face of dire difficulties only if one hold on to one's convictions and Rajat Khandelwal did remain clenched to his predetermined goal by keeping
trust in his goal to crack IIT-JEE and also by keeping unflinching fervor in his faculty members at Resonance. Rajat Khandelwal, student of Resonance finds himself
comfortable in facing any kind of challenge.
“Thought is the blossom; language the bud; action the fruit behind it”- Ralph Waldo Emerson
Being a student of Hindi medium throughout, he did not let the barrier of language become his shortcoming on the contrary he made this as his strength and leveraged
the batch of Resonance which is exclusively meant for the students of Hindi Medium. Coming from a small tehsil, Laxmangarh, Alwar District (Rajasthan), Rajat secured
91.83% in grade X and 91.54% in grade XII. A meritorious student, who possessed dreams so gigantic, ultimately made them come true by obtaining a commendable All
India Rank 79 (Gen Category).
For attaining the preset goals and transforming one self into an individual of focus, determination and dedication, one should know to convert every snake into a ladder
and thus always climb up in life. Let obstacles not become excuses. Rajat, with his will so strong and trust so very unwavering helped him transform every obstacle into
an instrument for growth and every snake into a ladder. In spite of having a fractured shoulder, he with a radiating poise, as according to him that he developed under the
motivating guidance of the faculty members of Resonance, faced JEE and cracked it with tremendous confidence and energy.
He certainly is a source of inspiration not only for the students of Resonance but for the entire community of students who still believe that language and hailing from a
small village is a bane. He epitomizes all the faculty members of Resonance, especially CDS Sir, as a well of knowledge and a cardinal source of inspiration for him. He
with his remarkable performance took a lead to show that a good performance is not an attribute of hard work alone but an amalgamation of knowledge, hard work,
motivation by faculty members, integrity and a fire within to excel in every endeavor.
