The innocence of a girl child and her impressions of the complex family system were reflected in subtle strokes of shades in the artworks of C. Sahiti at the two-day painting exhibition titled ‘My Hues’ at Visakha Museum. A graduate in fine arts from Andhra University, Sahiti’s paintings displayed at the exhibition are a compilation of two years’ hard work. “One can see the artist’s innocence and a reflection of self portrait through natural and animal forms in the paintings,” said Prof. V. Ramesh of Dept. of Fine Arts, Andhra University, who inaugurated the exhibition.

Ideas in different forms

Artworks done in the medium of acrylic on canvas and handmade paper, charcoal work and pen and ink drawings, Sahiti goes on a journey through the eyes of a girl child and presents her ideas in different forms.

“I particularly liked the painting of a tree with human faces peering out of the branches reflecting the dynamics of the family structure and the relationships shared,” said Mavuri Venkata Ramana, MD of CMR Group, who was the chief guest at the inaugural function.

Passionate about exploring the medium further, Sahiti hopes that her first painting exhibition will open wider avenues for the artist to showcase her works.

Need for visual culture

Explaining the need to give a platform to budding artists and inculcate a “museum-going culture” among Vizagites, Prof. Ramesh said that there should be sustained activity in the field of art to develop visual sensibilities and create a visual culture.

“To start with, the city should have a proper art gallery with a well-designed space for the artists to present their work.

The medium of art has evolved fast in India and gone beyond the canvas. There is plenty of scope for young artists to explore this space,” he added.

Sahiti’s painting exhibition is open to visitors on Sunday also from morning to evening.

Gitam students have their own portal

Created by students of HBS, ‘AppneAdda.com’ serves as a space for the varsity’s students to share ideas about various issues affecting them

‘AppneAdda.com’, a portal created as an online corner for students on the college campuses of GITAM University, was launched here on December 20 by Dean and Director of HBS, Prof. S.S. Prasada Rao. The portal was made by five MBA students from the varsity’s Hyderabad Business School (HBS).

The project, a brainchild of Vinodh Kumar, Sai Krishna, Srinivas Srujana, Arun, and Jayaprakash, was presented at national-level business idea contest held at Nirma University, Ahmedabad, earlier this month.

The robotic way of teaching Physics

Here is a novel device to teach Physics. Prof. Chandra Sekhar Prayaga, Chair of Physics Department at the University of West Florida, has devised a system whereby children can be taught the basic concepts of Physics by exploiting their natural fascination for robots.

The method, ‘Robotic Interactive Learning Environment’ (RILE), comes with features that help students to learn physics in a better and effective manner, Prof. Prayaga said.

Online version

“Robots move according to the data fed in the software, and sensors put in these robots generate the data that can be seen as graphical representation to see different physical forces at play,” he explained. Schools that cannot afford the new device can sign up for the online version of RILE.

Hands-on experience

The initiative has three components – the web, server and the robot – which help students to control and learn through hands-on experience, RILE chief technology officer Alex Whiteside said. “RILE has already been introduced in three schools in USA to teach physics concepts to eighth class students,” he said.

Bangalore-based firm

The module is being introduced by the Bangalore-based firm, Novatch Robo, for students of class 7 to 12 in both CBSE and ICSE patterns.
