In a major departure from the tight government control human resource ministry sought to
exercise, especially over institutions of higher education, the new HRD minister Kapil Sibal has
given indications to introduce far reaching reforms to ease and expand access to learning. These
include changing the rules and regulations for setting up primary and secondary schools to
facilitate growth, amending the 10+2 board examination system, permitting foreign universities
to set up shop in India and allow the premiere Indian institutions to open branches abroad. He is
keen to end the trauma of school admissions and board exams for students and parents. He has
given a nod to a nine point grading scale with A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2, D, E1 and E2 for the present
batch of class 10 studying in the session 2009-10. The class 10 board exams under CBSE will be
made optional from the academic year 2010-2011.
For Nandan Nilekani, India's first UID chairman who will provide Indians with a unique number
that will pop up on their passports, ration cards and PAN cards, singular yet universal, moving to
govt. is like moving to a start-up. At Infosys, he had all the systems in place, whereas everything is
to be rebuilt here. He has to do many things which he would have delegated in Infosys. However,
he believes that the new task is for a purposeful existence as he would be spending rest of his
working life doing something useful, other wise it could quickly dissipate.

of hope
The human mind is a brilliant instrument. It can soar high to the subtlest peaks of knowledge; it can ring with its endless ingenuity, the machinery
through which scientific theories can be actualized into a solid contribution to society and the people. We have witnessed this at Resonance.
With the stupendous success of attaining All India Rank 9 by Anvit Singh Tanwar, Resonance recorded a total of 1621 selections. From the
inception in the year 2001, Resonance has produced a tremendous number of human capital, that is a total of 5276 students (3345 from Year long
Classroom Contact Programme and 1931 from Distance Learning Programme), for The Indian Institutes of Technology. With the vision of
excellence in career education, Resonance aims at relentless growth in terms of producing maximum and dynamic human resource for the
'Techie India'. The teaching methodology adopted at Resonance plants in the students from the very beginning the seeds of 'concept
understanding' as it is a pre-requisite for cracking IIT-JEE. Daily Practice Problems (DPPs) and Sheets propel the student's morale as 'DPP' sums
up the entire session of the day and makes the student au fait of the class room sessions and 'Sheets' serve as the tool to enhance the skills of the
students from basic to advanced. To ensure success, I advise you to follow certain guidelines like, attending your classes regularly, writing your
class notes as much as possible, highlight important concepts/formula with RED INK Pen, doing your homework regularly, maintaining your
Class Notes, DPPs, Sheets and the test papers/ solutions systematically, writing down formula of each chapter on a separate page, keeping the
page of formula of one chapter of each subject in your pocket and reading it at least once in a day, analyzing wrongly attempted & not attempted
questions and writing your mistakes with RED INK pen and never hesitating to get your doubt clarified form your teachers.
The faculty, who themselves have gone under the rigors to JEE and have successfully cracked it, impart the students an up-to-date training and
sharpen their mental faculties.
Science has always been an integral part of evolution, right from the legendary Wright brothers to the latest invention of customized Robots to
attract tourists; science has contributed enormously to the human civilization. With the growing demand of more adept and skilled engineers,
Resonance is leaving no stone unturned to cope up with the burgeoning demand of innovative and multi skilled engineers.
Unlike run of the mill stuff, Resonance is always in the process of upgradation and strives to be at par with IIT-JEE standards. To generate the
best in terms of quality and quantity both, Resonance attempts to diversify. Apart from IIT-JEE and with the launch of BITSAT test series,
Resonance makes an effort to train the students for the other competitive exams which also open an equally good avenue.
Last but not least, we are in the process of excellence with continual practice and persistence to attain strategic performance. And I wish my
students all luck and may they be great engineers and provide the best to our nation.

COVER STORY New Role for Nandan Nilekani
One of the Indian engineer-
entrepreneurs most responsible
for creating the new reality that
has produced
this new
Indian image is
Nandan Nilekani.
n the past 15 years, India's identity has undergone one of the biggest transformations
that any country has ever experienced. India, once synonymous to poverty, snake
charmers and the Taj Mahal, today rules the roost as on the street in the West today if some
one is stopped on the way and the name ‘ India’ is uttered, the words that come back at you are
"brainy," "software engineers,'' "call centers" and "the country most likely to take my job"!
Nandan Nilekani
eattle has Bill. Bangalore has
Nandan. He was one of the
founders and president, of
Infosys Technologies Ltd.,
based in Bangalore India's
SSilicon Valley. Infosys, Wipro
and Tata Consultancy Services are the
Microsoft, IBM and Sun Microsystems of
India. What makes Nilekani unique? It can be
summarized to one phrase: great explainer.
Yes, he and N.R. Narayana Murthy, Infosys'
legendary chairman, have built a great global
company from scratch. But the reason
Nilekani, 54, is so sought out is that he has a
unique ability not simply to program software
but also to explain how that program fits into
the emerging trends in computing, how those
trends will transform the computing business
and how that transformation will affect global
politics and economics. It was his insight that
the global playing field was being "leveled"
by technology.
In this era of mounting complexity with more
people, systems and products entwined in a
b e w i l d e r i n g w e b o f g l o b a l
networksexplaining is an enormously
valuable skill and Nilekani is blessed with
this inimitable power.
Nandan Nilekani was born in Bangalore. His
father Mohan Nilekani was a manager in
Minerva Mills. Nandan Nilekani had his
initial schooling in Bangalore. Due to his
father's transferable job Nandan moved to his
uncle's place at Dharwad at the age of 12. This
taught Nandan Nilekani to be independent. In
1973, at the age of 18, Nandan Nilekani got
admission in IIT-Bombay. The stint at IIT-
Bombay transformed Nandan Nilekani from
a small town boy to a confident mature man.
The lessons he learnt were-meritocracy; the
ability to work as part of a team; hard work;
and the importance of giving back to the
society-have stood him in good stead.
After graduating in electrical engineering
from IIT-Bombay in 1978, Nandan Nilekani
joined Patni Computers. Here he worked
under Narayan Murthy. Three years later in
1981, Nandan Nilekani along with Narayan
Murthy and five other co-founders founded
Infosys. While Narayan Murthy stayed in
India, Nandan Nilekani shifted to the US to
take care of Infosys' interests there. He was
the company's marketing face.
In 1980s and 90s Nandan Nilekani and his
team worked hard to build Infosys. Today
Infosys' success story has become a legend
in India's corporate history. Today, Infosys
has an employee strength of 58,000, annual
revenue of $2 billion and $21 billion
Infosys is now looking to buy information
technology (IT) firms in Europe, South
America, Japan, West Asia and Australia
that earn $450-500 million a year in revenue
and cater to the healthcare and energy
sectors. Nilekani, who could have
conveniently been the possessor of his
selfish goals, kept his heart inspired and
ever afire with enthusiasm to live for a
nobler cause and meaningful strife for the
With resolve sufficiently strong, desire
exclusive and faith complete, Nandan
Nilekani with his mind and senses, intellect
and reason, unflinchingly took the path of
righteousness and struggled to achieve
excellence in his every endeavor and today
he is all prepared to serve the nation with
modesty and magnanimity of the purpose.
Nandan Nilekani, one of the biggest brands
of corporate India will head the national
project for creating a database of citizens,
took over as the chairman of Unique
Identification Authority of India (UIADI)
on Thursday, July 23, 2009.
Nilekani will rig in as cabinet minister in his
new responsibility. He has been inducted
into the government by the Prime Minister
of India, Manmohan Singh to head the
Unique Identification Authority of India.
The man, who impressed everyone not only
by his scientific imagination and inventive
skill but by his pride and patriotism, while
bidding adieu to Infosys said, “I am
generally very articulate but this is not the
day or place where I can be articulate. I have
been wrapped up in Infosys for 28 years. My
only identity is Infosys. I will be going to lead
a programme to give identity to every Indian.
But today I am losing my own identity”.
The simple and deep-seated conviction in
Nilekani's mind that there is a unitary whole
which manifests as a manifold made the
software czar Bill Gates believe in him and
the new project when he expressed his
keenness on partnering with India's ambitious
project of issuing national identity cards to
one billion people, which he hailed as a "great
initiative”. According to Gates, Nilekani has
a "challenging task" on hand.
The necessity for a centrally issued ID is
accentuated by the growing problems of
illegal immigrants in various parts of the
country. The ID is expected to serve as a
unifying document to identify the citizens of
The events of 26 November in Mumbai have
hastened the set up of the National Authority
for Unique Identity. The body was set up on
27 January 2009. The initial phase of the
project is expected to cover nine States and
four Union Territories. The UID will be
issued to people living in the coastal villages
of Gujarat, Maharashtra, Goa, Karnataka,
Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Orissa
and West Bengal. The Union Territories of
Dadar and Nagar Haveli, Lakshadweep,
Puducherry and Andaman & Nicobar Islands
shall also be covered in this first phase
expected to deliver the identity cards by early
Issuance of identity cards to 1.2 billion,
certainly a Herculean task, will be
accomplished in a meticulously planned way.
The first set of unique identification numbers
will be issued to the citizens within 12-18
months. These numbers will not only provide
an identity to citizens but will also help them
in obtaining benefits of government scheme
and also undertake with ease other activities
like opening bank accounts and availing
electricity connection.
The objectives of the NAUID (MNIC)

Project is to obviate need for multiple
document ary proof; faci l i t at e easy
verification and easy availing of government

The ID will effectively serve numerous
purposes like the preparation of National

Manoj Sharma,
Additional Director (A & M)
New Entrance Scheme Likely To Start
In 2011
Marks scored in the Plus Two board
examinations are likely to become a key
determining factor in addition to performance
in the nervewracking Joint Entrance
Examination (JEE) for admission into the
prestigious Indian Institutes of Technology
(IITs) by 2011.
In a few months, a pan-IIT committee, formed
by the Union HRD ministry to suggest
reforms to JEE, is expected to submit its
report recommending ways to factor in the
marks scored by students in higher secondary
examinations while preparing the IIT merit
list. A meeting of all IIT directors and JEE
representatives in Chennai over the weekend
discussed the proposed changes.
“We hope to devise a methodology to
compute a normalised Plus Two cut-off
eligibility score for each educational board
(CBSE, ICSE, and State Boards). If it's
approved, then only students who have scored
this cut-off mark would become eligible to
appear for JEE,'' IIT Madras deputy director
V G Idichandy, who is heading the
committee, said on Monday.
The present eligibility norm of an aggregate
score of 60% in Plus Two determined by the
IIT standing council, as opposed to 85%
recommended by a JEE review committee
four years ago, is considered too poor a
“We are collecting data on Plus Two results of
the past four to five years from different
boar ds i n al l st at es t o base our
recommendation on. Much will depend on
how we compute an acceptable method to
normalise the marks scored in different
boards. You have nearly 40 boards of
education in India,'' Prof Idichandy said.
However, the even more difficult part is to
convince authorities of all the boards to
declare Plus Two results within a specified
time-frame every academic year.
“This will be crucial for us as we have to base
JEE on Plus Two results. This is where a
common school board, at least at the level of
higher secondary education, which has been
proposed by HRD minister Kapil Sibal, will
help in determining any all-India merit list,''
he said.
Central Allocation To Ensure Seats
Are Filled
If you've made it to an Indian Institute of
Technology, you no longer need to travel to
the campus to book your seat. The tech
schools have decided to take the
counselling process online, thus allowing
students to submit their preferencesa mix of
streams and IITsfrom home.
Currently, students from across the country
travel to the closest IIT after they make
their mark in the Joint Entrance Exam.
“Now, all general category students will be
allowed to submit their preferences online.
However, all other candidates will have to
travel to the nearest IIT campus for the same
as they have to submit their certificates to
us,'' said IIT-Guwahati director Gautam
The decision to conduct the counselling
online was taken when the directors
recently met in Chennai to discuss plans for
the upcoming JEE in April 2010. In another
key decision, the IIT directors agreed to
centrally conduct two or more rounds of
seat allocation to ensure that seats don't lie
While this year, the IITs for the first time
conducted a second round of seat
allotments, it was held at the institute level.
Students who took admission were offered
internal betterment before the second
allotment had taken place. So, if a student
with a ranking of 1,104 in JEE-2009 did not
take the seat allotted to him in IIT-B,
another candidate with a lower ranking got
his place (if he had opted for that subject
and IIT-B in
his preference form).
The IIT directors have agreed to centrally
conduct two or more rounds of seat
allocation to ensure that seats don't lie
ISM Dhanbad seeks IIT tag
The governing council of the Indian School
of Mines University (ISMU) on Tuesday
agreed to the demands of ISM's striking
teachers and students to upgrade it as an IIT.
The counci l passed a resol ut i on
recommending IIT status for ISM.
Chairman of the governing council P K
Laheri has asked the ISM director to
prepare a report to be sent to the HRD
ministry. ISM students and teachers would
also meet the Jharkhand governor and ask
him to send a separate recommendation.
The IIT dilemma - old vs new
WHILE the Indian Institutes of Technology
(IITs) are still believed to be the ultimate
destination for engineering students, more
than 500 students have rejected the admission
offer to study in one of these institutes this
year. Reasons vary from not getting one's
choice discipline to being hesitant about 'new
IITs' and temporary campuses. The seven 'old
IITs' include Kharagpur, Bombay, Delhi,
Madras, Kanpur, Roorkee and Guwahati.
Eight more were added to the list and
approved by the government in 2008. These
IITs are mentored by the nearest old IITs.
Surendra Prasad, director, IIT-Delhi, says that
the rejections should be seen in the context of
new IITs. People are suspicious of the
effectiveness of the new IITs. The sudden
expansion has led to this kind of a situation,
he explains. However, he agrees that though
the pace could be a little slow, the need for an
expansion was always there.
A recent ministry of human resource
development (MHRD) agenda paper on the
futuristic vision of IITs states that India has
about 1,700 engineering educational
institutions and about two million students.
The number of graduates per year is about
4,00,000. In a scenario like this, the seven
IITs, 20 NITs, three IIITs, and a few other
institutes are not sufficient. According to the
MHRD report, the only way to meet the
demand is by increasing the intake of existing
IITs by setting up satellite campuses of
existing campuses or setting up new IITs.
As to the hesitation factor of parents and
students, Prasad says, “It is important to
disseminate information and we are trying
our best.” What parents and students need to
know is, he adds, that all these new IITs have
an established IIT as their mentor. Besides,
quality will not be compromised in any of
these new institutes. But then, Prasad points
out that in the initial years, the dilemma is
likely to persist because one has to choose
between an established IIT and a new one.
That ' s a t ough choi ce t o make.
While one of the major concerns of IIT
aspirants and parents seems to be the idea of
temporary campuses, Rajat Chakraborty, ex-
professor and former head of Jadavpur
University, mechanical engineering, feels
that such fears are unfounded. “The moment
the first batch from any of these institutes
complete their placements, students will start
feeling confident.”

othing can move without expenditure of energy.
Thoughts fly: this “flow of thoughts” is the mind.
Every thought when it sparks out from us a wee-bit
of our mental energy is spent. Life is spent in
'meeting challenges'. To meet them efficiently is
the game. Sometimes you lose. Meet them we
must: there is no choice. If you meet them with
courage and faith in yourself you win: if you neglect to be dynamic and
diligent all the time and sulk and try to avoid meeting them, they will
with merciless aggressiveness roll on and crush you in the blind fury.
This is the law-of-life. You may win here, and may lose there. It
becomes sport, exhausting but exhilarating, no doubt, and one can
enjoy it all if it is taken as a life-long sport.
An awakened intellect makes worldly life more readily successful and
also it reveals the deeper significance of the very existence. Ray
Mehra, a graduate in Mechanical Engineering from IIT Roorkee in
1966, is the testimony of the fact that the mightiest power in life lies in
intellectual faculty.
Rabindranath Tagore says,
'I have seen, have heard, have lived in the
depths of the known, have felt the truth that
exceeds all knowledge which fills my heart
with wonder and I sing.'
The basic quality of Ray's life and his thoughts are determined by
incredible achievements, lofty goals and clear vision.
Ray is the CEO of R Squared, Inc., a
manufacturing business with plants in
Illinois, Mississippi and Mexico with the
focus on acquiring and consolidating OEM
c o mp o n e n t s u p p l i e r s i n t h e
industrial/commercial markets.
Prior to R Squared, Ray was the president of Sunbeam Health, a
200 MM manufacturer of scales for consumer and commercial
markets, which was part of the larger consumer products company.
During his tenure at Sunbeam, Ray was also responsible for 4
manufacturing operations in Mexico for two years, where he led
1100 employees and all aspects of its operations to improve its
contribution margin by four percent points by reducing cost,
improving quality and other productivity gain. Ray also led an $80
million manufacturer of gas range components supplying to
General Electric, Maytag, Amana; grew sales 35% and profits
100% during second year; general cash flow of over 10 million;
produced RONA of 30 along with three successive record years. He
also focused on acquisition and consolidation of OEM component
suppliers to the industrial/commercial markets like R&R Metal
Craft Inc., r-Squared Systems, and Fox Tool Manufacturing
Ray is an avid tennis player and enjoys traveling and spending time
mentoring friends and family. He lives with his wife Joyce in
Naperville, a suburb of Chicago in Illinois.
Ray is actively involved in the IITR alumni association and also
currently heads the Midwest chapter of PAN-IIT. He is also on the
board of PAN-IIT, North America. Since its inception in 2003, the
Pan-IIT annual conference has become one of the leading
technology summits for executives looking to build partnerships
Ramesh 'Ray' Mehra
with leaders in the world of advanced
technology. He has been instrumental in
successfully hosting programs for IIT
Networking meetings in the greater Chicago
land area on a monthly basis.
Best expressions of Ray, a man with not only
intellect but illumined consciousness, lies in
his experiences which unite them into an ever
widening individuality.
This year, the seventh Pan-IIT Global
Conference is being held in Chicago in
October and former American President, Bill
Clinton will be among many top leaders to
address and Mr. Ray Mehra will be the
chairperson of this conference.
According to conference
c hai r man Ray Mehr a,
' Ent r epr eneur shi p and
Innovation in a Global
Economy' will be the theme
of this year's techie summit.
Over 3,000 IITians from
around the world will attend
the annual gathering to be
ope ne d by Si ba l a nd
Mr. Chopra will be one of the
keynote speakers.
According to Ray, the former president of US
and other global leaders in their fields will
discuss how ideas can be transformed into
actions on both sides of the ocean (in the US
and India), which is extremely an important
issue, as the entire world is no more a
segregated entity but due to globalization, the
entire world has shrunk to become a single
entity and the concept of integration is a must
to be implemented effectively. The holistic
approach to problems in the areas like
health and energy in India will also be taken
into consideration.
Mehra's thoughts and vision is not only
unprecedented but is fashioned by heart,
intelligence and mind (hrda manisa,
manasa) as his goal is to see India prosper
and come out of deep-rooted shackles of
poverty and consequently seventh Pan-IIT
has presented a proposal called Panch
Ratnas to the Indian government to
revolutionize higher education in the
country and this will also be one of the
significant topics of the conference. The
proposal, titled Pan-IIT Panch Ratnas,
presented to the President Pratibha Patil,
proposes a five-point action plan to make
India the global hub for knowledge creation
and talent development by 2022. Pan-IIT's
Panch Ratnas include implementation of
wholesale policy reforms in education,
quality control and increase capacity, and
'quantum improvement in faculty service
conditions, deployment of technology for
teaching and collaborative research, and the
establishment of an industry-academia
The invisible screen of commonplace was
removed from all things, and all men and
their ultimate significance were intensified
in mind...... the unmeaning fragments lost
their isolation and Ray's mind reveled in the
unity of vision, a vision which sees a
harmonious sync of an integrated world and
making of a better India.

A new upsurge in writing-
For Tushar, writing is more of an expression & a more of a fad.
ust like leadership, writing skills
need vision and mission coupled with
integrity rooted in dedication. These
qualities can be ascertained only
when a person starts his journey from
ground level.
Tushar Raheja, a former IITian from Delhi,
completed his B. Tech. in Industrial and
Production Engineering. He possesses an
instinctive ability to hold one's attention with
narrative deviations that illuminate disparate
subjects ….the charm of campus life, pig-headed
Professors, the advantage of sisters, the adventure
of train travel in India, the joy of an early winter in
Delhi ….What Raheja does is to very cleverly
localize the Wooster persona.
Tushar Raheja, who wrote his novel at the age of
22, took three months to write his first novel. The
bulk of the book was written during the college
summer vacations. Raheja's debut novel,
'Anything for You Ma'am' is a love
story of an IITian.
Raheja admits that he is not typical
author material. “I have never been a
writer. I find it difficult to form flowing
sentences. I don't have a disciplined
approach to writing,” says Raheja. But
he claims to be a wizard at storytelling.
He possesses a sense of humor and a
crazy 'always-up-to-something' group
of friends and prompted Raheja to
write a book on his life and friends.
Raheja's book has been flying off the
shelves. 5,000 copies of the book's first
print were sold out in one month. The
novel has undergone several reprints.
“We get huge orders every day,”
confirms J.K. Bose, managing director
of the Delhi-based Srishti Publishers
and Distributors, publishers of Raheja's
It's clearly the age of on-the-fly writing.
What were once the essentials of
writing like a big idea, literary prowess,
time and a dedicated writing space
have now become redundant and
obsolete. India's upcoming breed of
new authors writes on the move and
about nothing in particular.
Raheja talks about an IITian's quest for
love in his cheerful novel, “Anything
for you Ma'am”. In the novel, Tejas, an
extremely jovial IITian can't help
falling madly in love with his sister's
beautiful best friend Shreya even
though she lives at the other end of the
nation, in Chennai, and he would do
anything for her, even jeopardize his
career to travel the length of the country
just to meet her. Thus, begins Tejas's
extremely eventful and humorous
journey where Mr Fate pits him, as only he
can, against Professor Sidhu who would do
anything to stop him; and conjures a host of
interesting characters who travel some part of
his journey with him weaving together
extremely witty plots, and well, Mr Fate, it
seems, has more roles in his ingenious mind
for Biobull than just remain a rocking bus.
We're all mere pawns in the
hands of fate and when
things go wrong; they will, at
any rate; All we can do is, just
wait for Mr Fate to become
our mate.
The novel also touches on the
humorous aspects like, the
Bio bull, a revolutionary bus
t ha t r u ns o n hu ma n
discharge and provides a
s o me wha t f unny y e t ,
inexhaustible alternate fuel.
Raheja's novel is a racy
delightful fictional narrative.
Raheja reflects self knowledge which takes us
from activity directed towards the outside
wo r l d t o a n e x c l u s i v e i n wa r d
contemplativeness as well. In Raheja's novel
the difference lies in the treatment of the
subject, the narrative is devoid of lofty
idealism; the lingo and its texture is very close
to what students use in colleges and it is a
good attempt by someone writing only his
first novel.
Ever since investment banker Chetan Bhagat
pulled off two best sellers (One Night @ the
12 Anunaad, October - December 2009
Vidhu Gaur
Call Center being one of them), many young Indians are discovering a
writer in them. “A new genre of colloquially-written fiction is being
explored in India and it is taking the mass market by storm,” says Kapish
Mehra, head of the Delhi-based Rupa & Co. publishers.
Star Sports anchor-turn- ed-author Gautam Bhimani wrote his debut book
'Reverse Sweep' about the lighter side of cricket. Ira Trivedi, model in her
early twenties, wrote her first novel 'What would you do to save the world in
less than a month'.
The typical setting for India's new-age fiction is the college campus. And all
elements of college life, hostel humor, bad food, nicknames are woven into
the story. Abhijit Bhaduri's book 'Mediocre But Arrogant' is set in a
B-school campus. Bhaduri is clear that he is no Dickens in the making. “My
book is written in class notes style. I write like I speak,” he says.
Debutant English authors in India have never had it so good. In monetary
terms, the English book reading market in India is pegged at Rs 6,000 crore.
“India has the fastest growing English-reading market in the world. It's
growing by a tenth every year,” says Srishti Publisher's Bose. In the last two
years, two international publishing houses 'Picador' and 'Random House'
have set up shop in India. India's growing English-speaking population is
making the country a lucrative business destination for publishers. Also,
reading is slowly getting back in fashion in India. Five-star bookstores like
Oxford, Crosswords and Landmark have made book buying a style
statement. It has added a spin to the market for English books.
Moreover, the growth in the general reading category is coming mostly
from younger readers. People who are suddenly discovering that there are
books on the shelves that reflect their lives, attitudes and angst; they do not
hesitate to buy them. The reading market is now driven by young readers.
And they want to read books that they can relate to them.
Another big change in Indian writing is that it is no longer dependent on
approval by the West. The new authors talk exclusively to Indian audience.
Raheja, whose book has liberal doses of Indian terminology, evinces the
fact that the Western audience is not in focus anymore. Indians want to read
about themselves and write like they talk.
Raheja writes a touching book about a young lover's story ….that engrosses
the reader, with its high speed rather hilarious turn of events amidst all the
chaos are the sweet love moments, be it their date or their telephonic
conversation. It is the story of a boy-next-door, which any youngster can
relate to. Raheja moves back and forth in time, reminding of ace writers like
Virginia Woolf and Amitav Ghosh. Being an IITian, Raheja did not limit
himself to studies but experimented with writing as well and his first novel
certainly did well as a debutant writer.
“ The f i r e r e s t r a i ne d i n t h e t r e e Fa s h i o n s f l o we r s ”
Similarly a fire in the belly is a must to stand above the rest and cut the
clutter for the efforts to be realized and acknowledged.

Anvit Singh Tawar
Reso Roll No: 701204
IIT-JEE Year- 2009 |AIR: 9
Name of Institute and branch: IIT Bombay
(Computer Science & Engineeering)
Q 1. What is required to get into IIT?
Firm determination is pivotal to get into any
Indian Institutes of Technology. No matter
what may come one should never lose track of
one's preparation.
Q 2. How much time did you devote on an
average for your preparation? What was your
daily time table? How did you divide your
course in those hours of study?
For me 'how long' is not as important as 'how
much'. Number of study hours depends on an
individual discretion. My priorities were:
(i) Class notes + DPPs: According to me,
hands on practice on these with full devotion
will surely benefit an individual in two years.
(ii) Review Tests: One should prepare
wholeheartedly for any test as after-test
analysis is very important and based on it one
can tweak one's exam-time strategy to
maximize one's performance.
(iii) Sheets + Question Banks: These are
important for building up one's skills in any
topic, so they should be the top most in the
priority list for the new topics.
Q 3. What are the important topics for special
Any topic in which one is unable to perform
well in comparison to that of other topics
requires special attention. Some topics on
which I concentrated more were:
Phys i cs : Mechani cs ( es p. RBD) ,
Ch e mi s t r y : I o n i c Eq u i l i b r i u m,
Electrochemistry, Organic Chemistry
Mat hemat i cs : Al gebr a ( +gener al
manipulation), Calculus
Q 4. How does one cope up with the school
syllabus and preparation for IIT-JEE? Did
you take extra efforts to prepare for board
The school syllabus is not much different
from that of JEE span. All, that one needs is
the presentation skill, which can be easily
managed during the board exams. In fact,
the non-JEE portion of the school syllabus
is also covered at Resonance, which means
school can totally be kept aside for these 2
years. However, practicals should be
performed as and when required as these are
very important. Also, a thorough reading
textbooks for Organic & Inorganic
Chemistry is a must.
Q 5. How many questions should an
individual attempt to get into IITs? How
tough is the paper?
Nothing is pre-determined. Just make sure
that one doesn't leave any question unseen.
One should not overstress oneself and
maintain one's cool & calm and should
proceed at a normal pace.
The JEE paper is at par with those at
Resonance. In fact, I found it easier.
Q 6. Give some tips for increasing one's
efficiency while studying? How did you
refresh yourself from the hectic schedule?
One should study in intervals with a good
mood and a relaxed mind. To practice this
habit, a sound sleep and a proper diet is
required. For me 7-8 hours used to be
sufficient for a good sleep. The study hours
should match with the test timings. JEE
requires very high level of concentration
which can be built only by regular efforts
and determination.
For refreshment, I used to go for walks, chat
with friends (in limits, of course), and play
football at the weekends.
Q 7. What is your Success mantra? Give
some advice to your successors at
Resonance who are preparing for IIT-JEE?
I constantly analyzed my performance after
each test and worked out ways to improve.
This slowly but surely improved my
performance, confidence and also helped me
maintain consistency.
Stay assured that you, at Resonance, are being
handled by the best of the faculty team of the
country. Be confident and be cool.
Q 8. While preparing at Resonance how did
you evaluate your performance after each CT,
The best time to analyze performance in a test
is immediately after the test. I sorted out my
mistakes, considered ways of improving
them, and adjusted my speed accordingly. I
used to go through the problems which I
solved correctly and then tried to find out
better and quicker methods. Discussion with
friends also helped me evaluate my
performance. Finally, I realized that equal
weightage should be given to all the tests.
Q 9. What was your first reaction after giving
the IIT-JEE examination? Which topic did you
think should have been given more
importance for the increase in your
percentage or performance in JEE?
JEE question paper was very similar to that at
Resonance. As expected, I was happy and
confident after the exam. Chemistry (esp.
inorganic) used to be my weak area which I
could have improved upon to score better.
Q 10. Whom do you wish to give the credit of
your success? To what extent did your family
contribute in your success?
I want to extend my thanks to my family
members first as my parents have always
helped me to come out of low-confidence
states and boosted my morale high up. My
brother was always there at my back
supporting me and was the first one to inspire
me for IIT. I would then thank God,
Resonance, my teachers, and my friends who
made my dream come true.

Anunaad, October - December 2009
Aaruni made brave efforts. He quickly started putting lots of mud on the
broken boundary. But the turbulence of water would wash away all the
mud. At last Aaruni himself lay on the broken boundary to stop the flow of
water. His body was able to resist the flow of water and he kept lying in the
cold water for the whole of night. Thus he took full care of the farm. In the
morning, all the disciples went to bow to Guruji but Aaruni was no where to
be found. Gurudev went towards the farm with other disciples in search of
Aaruni. "Aaruni! Aaruni... !!"
Aaruni heard the voice of Guruji.
His body was shivering due to
cold & his voice was suppressed.
Even then he got up & bowed to
his Guru and said, “at your
humble service, Gurudev". Guru
Aayod Dhaumya's heart was
overwhelmed with joy.
Seeing the dedication of the disciple, his heart was overflowing with divine
blessings. Lighting the candle of knowledge in the heart of Aaruni he said,
"Son! You shall become an expert in all Shastra even without studying."
By having true dedication towards Guru, the knowledge of Shastra started
developing in the mind of Aaruni on its own. Guru named him Udyalak.
Great is the devotion of Aaruni towards Gurudev!
Guru's walking becomes the way. There is no path apart from it. Either the
shishya stands by the side of guru or he loses the path also. Either you move
forward or be suspended. A cloud carries the life giving essence from the
seas over great distances to thirsty souls who should perish without it; just
like a cloud has the power to transform the undrinkable saline content of the
sea into sweet waters fit for the consumption of living beings, similarly the
faculty members of Resonance are incessantly on their way to groom the
students to make them a complete package of hard work, principles, ethics
and intelligence. The 'guru-shishya padhati' has always been laid stress on
to inculcate the vibrations so strong which emits out radiance and positivity
in every JEE aspirant to make him/her a true Sadhaka, ready to serve the
country with a contemporary approach.
he syllable 'gu' of the word 'Guru' means darkness &
the syllable 'ru' means light. Thus, Guru is the great
one who takes a disciple from darkness (ignorance) to
enlightenment (True Knowledge)." -Lord Shiva in Shri Guru
Faith, conviction and blind trust in Guru leads a disciple to the
path of success and Aaruni is the vestige of that blind
conviction stirred with strong bonding with his Guru.
There was a Rishi called Aayod Dhaumya in the ancient India.
Many disciples (or students) used to stay in his clean & pure
Ashram (school). One of them was Aaruni, very polite, good at
serving & helping others & enthusiast in following the
commands of Gurudev.
Once it was raining very heavily. Guruji sent Aaruni to take
care of the farms of the ashram. Aaruni went & saw that water
had partially ruined the boundaries of the farm & was rapidly
flowing out of the farm. Soon it would destroy the complete
boundary & the whole of water would flow out.

“Within the depths of our soul, there is a place for eternal peace, where our eternal slaves exist
beyond the births and deaths, the unions and separations, the gains and losses of the world.”
f we can make room for ourselves
there then we really live and that
state of eternal bliss is only
achieved when one's physiological
needs gradually precipitate into self
actualization and with Rakesh
Bunkar this journey started much early.
Bunkar's courage took him from the levels
of mediocrity and internal turbulence to the
state of realizing his esteem needs where he
finds himself at rest now after being brutally
bruised and battered emotionally &
It is said that every adversity brings in
certain opportunities. This stands true for
Bunkar as well, as he fought against all
oddities and imbibed new lessons from his
struggle. And hence, in an endeavor to ride
the storm, he implemented the leanings
derived into action to ensure smooth road
Rakesh Bunkar, who was a student at
Resonance, hails from Rawatbhata, a small
town near Kota (Rajasthan). Surrounded by
all miseries and buried in the colossal debt
of hunger and survival for livelihood,
Bunkar lived in the shoddy streets of basti
in Rawatbhata with his parents. Managing
two squares a meal every day was a
Herculean task for his parents, Shivlal &
Durga Bunkar, who till date consider
themselves blessed if they are able to
arrange a loaf of bread for morning and
evening by working on daily wages with a
private construction contractor and by
working as a maid, who washes dishes
respectively. The shabby streets, the
piquant milieu and the malicious company
of so called chums of the kacchhi basti,
made Bunkar realize that this has put on
him an indelible mark of being puny and
worthless by the so called 'reputed class'
of society and these feelings became
stronger when he got the same repugnant
treatment from his teachers of
government school at Rawatbhata as
He then took an oath from himself of
studying harder then ever; by not letting
the malevolent association of his pals
Just like from a nebula, a cloud of gas
drifts about in space, Bunkar slowly
emerged to see himself as an IITian.
With the help of some acquaintances of
his friends he was able to know about a
prestigious career of engineering at IITs.
And for the same he approached
Resonance. Conducive environment and
rigorous efforts planned with meticulous
methodology clubbed with Bunkar's
invincible conviction and unshakable
determination made his dreams come
Just like other students who come from
places; enticing, enthralling, free &
frolicking world of Epicureanism could
have been a great hindrance and a cause
of deviation for Bunkar but his
adamantine belief to soar higher to
achieve his lofty goals and his blind faith
in his faculty members took him to
cosmic process of continuity and
With will strong and confidence within he
finds himself in the Indian Institute of
Technology Guwahati. He, today
unfailing gives credit to his parents &
Resonance as it provided him free of cost
coaching and he believes that it was the
turning point of his life.
He cleared his JEE in the year 2008 with
AIR 443 (SC Category). Today he is a
second year student, pursuing his B.Tech
i n mechani cal engi neeri ng. Hi s
outstanding success was publicized by
'Hindustan Times' and by Bhaskar and
'Patrika' in 2008 in a form of short
interviews so that it can become a
tremendous source of motivation and
inspiration for the youngsters.
Till date he feels that entering the
portals of IIT-Guwahati is the
'winning the princess' situation for
him and he is very happy as IITs not
only make an individual versatile
but also scientifically develop one's
mental faculty and makes one
competent to face the fast moving
Bunkar has set an example that
nothing is impossible provided one
has will strong and determination
affect him and thought of being self
dependent. He started selling vegetables
in the weekly vegetable Haat Bazaar to
remove his pecuniary and help his
parents as well and he did this for 4 years
(from grade VIII to grade XII).
Rakesh, who thrice played table tennis
at the state level representing his
government school, faced a number of
problems in paying the fees of the
government school where he studied till
grade XII.

IIT - Roorkee Alumnus At Resonance
and came to know that they are the premier
institutes that provide the best of engineers to
the country. I understood that IITians are a
class apart and they excel in every field
because they are groomed to be versatile.
These things and notions inspired me to go
into IITs as I always wanted to do something
different and challenging.
Q.2 What sort of qualities one must possess
to get into IITs?
Ans: The only parameter which makes a
person successful is the attitude and this is one
parameter which dominates all other
parameters. I always had a blind faith on my
teacher and whatever he taught and this turned
out as a blessing for me to become an IITian.
Second most important thing is hard work and
dedication towards the goal. Third thing is
progressing in the right direction. One must
always be confident but not overconfident to get
into IITs. For example in simple language, if one
thinks that one can solve a particular problem
and then attempts to solve it for getting an
answer, then surely one is heading towards the
path of success and if one thinks that one can
solve a particular problem and leaves it
assuming it can easily be solved, then one is
committing a big blunder.
Q.3 What is the distinguishing factor of IIT-
Roorkee which makes it different from other
Ans: Indian Institute of Technology - Roorkee is
among the foremost institutes of national
importance in higher technological education &

Q.1 What inspired you for IITs?
Ans: Frankly saying I was not aware of IITs and
IIT-JEE till my grade twelfth. While going
through some book, I traced out some questions
with IIT-JEE, U.O.R., MNR. etc, written at the
bottom. It was then that I came to know about
these competitive exams which are a must to
enter into good engineering colleges. I belong to
a middle class business family and so none of
my family member was acquainted with IITs.
When I left my home town for the preparation of
competitive examinations, I learnt about IITs

lived in himself the principles, intelligentsia,
and ethics of his faculty members at
Resonance. He expresses that the desires, the
urges, the hopes, the dreams, the successes
and the failures are mandatory to make home
in the world.
Today Rahul is a Consultant at Deloitte &
Touche Assurance and Enterprise Risk
Services India Pvt. Ltd., Hyderabad. In the
world of, the major functions are
now software oriented. The success of the
software industry has increased the relative
value of professional workers, that is not only
programmers, but also managers and
analysts. The growing importance of human
capital, in turn, has led to innovative models
of entrepreneurship and organizational setup,
pioneered by the software sector. With the
importance of IT, the software sector has
become almost indispensable for other
sectors as well. A potentially important
contribution of the software industry is the
exemplar of good entrepreneurship and
corporate governance to the rest of India.
Though less visible, IT is instrumental for
the developmental processes and is a source
of productivity improvement for all
industries, and can have powerful long-
term benefits for India's industrialization
and economic growth.
Rahul is working in the IT Security
Management offering of Security and
Privacy line which helps in improving the
security of a single component or work with
client to develop comprehensive security
programs and also helps in maintaining the

Resonance have some strong points and some
weak points. Students at Resonance are very
laborious and they are also enthusiastic to crack
IIT-JEE. They have the caliber to do miracles
but sometimes they tend to become more
theoretical rather than becoming practical. One
must remember that one is preparing for a
technical institute where one must have
technical and practical bent of mind.
Q.7 What suggestions or words of wisdom
will you like to give to the students preparing
for IIT-JEE at Resonance to increase their
Ans: One thing that I would like to say to the
students to increase their productivity is that
they must have blind faith on their teachers and
on the study pattern adopted at Resonance and
work in lieu with it. I firmly hold that if student
& teacher are strongly determined to achieve
their preset goal, then there is no stopping, one
will certainly see oneself in any one of IITs. IITs
groom students in such a way that IITians
become an example for the society at large.
These students are cut above the rest. IITs give

goal and did not go astray. For him the path of
righteousness was in the pursuit of achieving
his aim of clearing IIT-JEE with integrity and

Today Rahul is well established in Deloitte &
Touche AERS India Pvt. Ltd. After his joining
the company, he has gained experience in
building solutions in Governance, Risk and
Compliance tools especially in Archer,
OpenPages and Oracle GRCM. This has led
him to achieve excellence in good
programming skills with experience in
C/C++, C# and trained in Java. Currently, he
is working in Security Management offering.
According to him Resonance is one of the two
things to which he gives credit for his
selection into IIT. He believes that Resonance
made his base strong by providing him the
much needed concepts that are most
important to crack IIT-JEE. With the best
faculty and facilities, he received a very
healthy and competitive environment for the
JEE preparation at Resonance.
There is a secret dwelling place with a longing
urge in every heart and very few are able to
fulfill that urge. Rahul Singhal is one, who
with modesty, hard work and firm
determination achieved his goal and is still on
his way to maintain the same to achieve

one such example is of Shubhra Saxena, a
persona who left the abode of wealth (IT
professional) to serve humanity with heart so
pure and vision so clear.
It was woman power all the way in the civil
services (main) examination 2008, as they
took the top three positions in one of the
toughest competitive exams in the country,
Shubhra Saxena, a graduate from the
prestigious Indian Institute of Technology
(IIT) Roorkee, and Sharandeep Kaur Brar, a
post-graduate from Punjab University, were
ranked first and second in the civil services
(main) examination 2008 conducted by the
Union Public Service Commission
(UPSC). Another woman, Kiran Kaushal
was ranked third.
After discovering the secret energy and
dynamism within herself, Shubhra Saxena
properly organized and channelized the
play of this energy to satiate the urge to
serve the country's rural population and that
made 30-year-old Shubhra Saxena to quit her
well-paid IT job to prepare for civil service
"It is a very good feeling. Every person
achieves victory at his/her own pace," an
elated Saxena said,
Born in Uttar Pradesh's Bareli, Saxena had
most of her education in Jharkhand. She gives
full credit of her success to her well groomed
parenting, schooling and her over all
academics as all of these factors contributed
in preparing a strong base, besides equipping
her with a competitive zeal.
She also attributed her feat to her “loving”
parents and husband, Shashank Gupta, in-
laws for her roaring success saying they
Shubhra Saxena
“were very much supportive when I
expressed my desire to appear for civil
A software engineer and an alumnus of IIT-
Roorkee, said that she quitted her well-paid
IT job as she always had an urge to serve the
rural population, who are deprived of even
basic facilities such as education and drinking
water. She is desirous of bringing change in
the existing bureaucratic system, by
administration reaching out to the people
i nst ead of peopl e approachi ng t he
administration, believing, only then an
effective governance can be established.
Once we undertake a great and noble work,
we are already set on the grand road leading to
its total realization soon, in complete success.
All spectacular successes were achieved in
little courageous steps taken with self
confidence and faith in the nobility of the final
goal chosen and Shubhra completely believed
in her with a commitment to serve humanity
and to transform the system to generate
fruitful output in favor of people at large.
Describing Shubhra as "hard working" and
"sincere" girl since childhood, Kamna
(Shubhra's mother) said "Shubhra was always
a topper as she secured the highest rank in
school finals from DAV (Ranchi zone). After
completing plus two, she was selected in all
the competitive examinations that she took
for engineering entrance”. Kamna also gave
credit to Shubhra's "cooperating in-laws" for
allowing her to continue with her studies.
Kamna lived at Noida when Shubhra was
preparing to crack the UPSC for the last
couple of years; she was with her husband
when the results were finally declared. Her
husband extended unflinching support and
stayed with her for months at Delhi to
encourage her.
Shubhr a' s f at her, Ashok Chandr a,
superintending engineer, with the Central
Coalfields Limited's Dhori Project, said
Shubhra made them proud by becoming the
only women from the family to qualify for the
civil services examination.
"We have had a wing commander, doctors,
engineers and even civil servants in the
family but she is the only woman to reach
this high standard of performance," he said.
Chandra always believed in making the
foundation of education strong and solid so
even being posted in a colliery region, he
tried to give his children the best available
Eldest among three siblings, Shubhra also
guided her brother and sister in their higher
studies. Both of them are now engineers.
Shubhra devoted her heart
and soul and worked for an
average of eight hours a
day and 10-12 hours
during examinations. "I
al ways had fai th i n
myself... so I won. Once a
person understands the
concept it is very easy to
crack the exam. And more
important is the ability to
believe in yourself," she
Self growth is one of the paramount
responsibilities of every one of us and one
must like Shubhra, constantly strive to grow
and find therein fresh abilities to serve the

Transforming Trend of Engineers from Transactional to Dynamic
very profession has a
history, and the extent to
which that history is
known, remembered,
preserved, honored, and used, determines to a
great magnitude the degree to which the
profession knows and understands itself and
is acknowledged and respected as a
profession outside the confines of its own
practice. The profession of engineering has a
long, rich, and important history, but many
technically astute engineers are dismissive of
that history. They emphasize the state-of-the-
art, current trends, and the future of their
specialist technology to the exclusion of its
history. As a result, the history of engineering
has not been especially prominent in most
professional discussions or technical
meetings. History would seem to have the
reputation among many engineers of being
frivolous, irrelevant, and distracting from the
development of the ever-changing state-of-
the-art and the pursuit of the future.
Engi neer i ng has al ways been an
indispensable part of history as it has its roots
ingrained from the age of pre stone. With the
development of stone cart and wheels to the
contemporary globalization, engineering has
made the civilizations learn to exist and
survive comfortably.
With the globalization of engineering
institutes, the industry's expectations of the
skills and competences required from
engineers have changed and hence the
responsibilities of engineering colleges in
training engineers need to undergo a change.
Unlike olden days when engineers were
required to master a particular expertise,
today's engineer needs to be a multifaceted
personality with a variety of skills viz.
technical, managerial, communication and
soft skills. Engineers today need to be
creative and innovative and the educational
system they pass through must help them to
imbibe such competencies on a regular basis.
Engineers need to be competitive and be
aware of latest technological developments
and hence their educational programme must
be risen equal to the new challenge.
In the last thirty years, technical education has
undergone rapid changes. This is visible from
the mushrooming of technical institutions,
the competition that prevails among them
and the state-of-art infrastructure and
campuses that are present today. Technical
institutions must adopt latest strategies and
methodologies to offer students a
curriculum that gives knowledge and
imparts skills that match the expectations of
the industry. A close collaboration with the
industry and institutions and exchange
pr ogr ammes amongst i nst i t ut i ons
worldwide along with MOUs and tie-ups
will help technical education meet the new
Engineering education has also witnessed
phenomenal changes and today there exists
a great demand for high quality education in
the field of engineering and technology.
With the increasing number of engineering
colleges, there is a need to ensure quality in
technical education. AICTE is a statutory
body that was established for planning,
framing, regulating and monitoring
standards in engineering education and also
Concerns about Engineering
Some faculties of engineering such as Electronics and communication and computer
science are more preferred than other faculties of engineering. Core engineering
departments have been neglected for a long time and have failed to evolve the way they
should have done. Engineering education remains within the easy reach of the rich and
powerful thereby marginalizing the aspirants from the weaker sections of the society.
Students' preference, driven more by the choices of their parents and influence of their peer
group, is more towards a course of study that will fetch them good jobs with attractive pay
packages. This leads to many students preferring courses selected by the majority and leads
to an imbalance.
Smart and intelligent students restrain from joining newly emerging courses like Food
Technology as they avoid taking risks. They fail to notice the importance and specialty of
such innovative courses. For example, the power sector is of great importance to the country
but not many toppers among students prefer to pursue a course in electrical engineering.
This electrical industry thus settles employing professionals of less standard and the few
who excel prefer to work abroad because of the attractive salary and job opportunities.
Engineering aspirants should develop their communication skills which is the need of the
hour. Library hours should be compulsory and more project works should be encouraged.
Proximity to their place will be good. Spare time can be utilized to undergo value added
courses. The engineering aspirants should have a first hand knowledge about the college.
They should look at the faculty, visit the departments and interact with teaching staff and if
possible talk to alumni for references. Students should update their hard skills and soft skills
to meet the demands of a volatile job market. Students have to improve their flexibility and
employability skills. Students must personally evaluate the current trends and choose
programmes that will provide them a secure future with increased opportunities. Students
must also learn to explore new frontiers of technical education and join programmes that are
least preferred and not so popular but have a potential to evolve as major areas of research
and development.

Maybe God wants us to meet a few wrong people before
meeting the right one so that when we finally meet the right
person, we will know how to be grateful for that gift.
When the door of happiness closes, another opens, but quite
often we look so long at the closed door that we don't see the
one which has been opened for us.
The best kind of friend is the kind you can sit on a porch and
swing with, never say a word, and then walk away feeling like
it was the best conversation you've ever had.
It's true that we don't know what we've got until we lose it, but
it's also true that we don't know what we've been missing until
it arrives.
Giving someone all your love is never an assurance that
they'll love you back! Don't expect love in return; just wait for
it to grow in their heart but if it doesn't, be content it grew in
It takes only a minute to get a crush on someone, an hour to
like someone, and a day to love someone, but it takes a
lifetime to forget someone.
Find the one that makes your heart smile. There are moments
Dream what you want to dream; go where you want to go; be
what you want to be, because you have only one life and one
chance to do all the things you want to do.
May you have enough happiness to make you sweet, enough
trials to make you strong, enough sorrow to keep you human,
enough hope to make you happy.
The brightest future will always be based on a forgotten past,
you can't go on well in life until you let go of your past failures
and heartaches.
When you were born, you were crying and everyone around
you was smiling. Live your life so that when you die, you're
the one who is smiling and everyone around you is crying.

Core story of success in life
Life is not so simple,
It vanished away my dimples,
I always fight with the time.
While treating with 3º Amines,
When I asked god to help me,
He develops the hardest problem for me.
When I again asked for help from God.
He showed me a blundered sword.
Now I have understood that life is still
becoming together and tougher.
And the “Tougher Wins”

The winner is always part of the answer, but
the loser is always part of problem.
The winner sees an answer for every
problem but the loser sees a problem for
every answer.
The winner says, “It may be difficult, but
possible.” but the loser says “It may be
possible but, it's too difficult.”
The winner always accepts the challenge,

Risks in your life.
To live is to risk dying.
To hope is to risk despair.
To try is to risk failure.
To laugh is to risk appearing fool.
To weep is to risk appearing sentimental.
To place ideas and dreams before a crowd is to risk being called naïve.
But risk must be taken, because the greatest hazard in life is to risk.
The person who risks nothing, does nothing.
They may avoid suffering and sorrow, but they can not learn, love or feel freedom.
Only a person who risks is truly free. So a to get success in your life, Always take risks
