Osmania University more research-friendly

It may not be well funded, but when it comes to the morale of Ph.D. students, the Osmania University (OU) gets a better ranking from its own students. Aspects such as student-faculty interactions, strong and active student bodies, and a general sense of belongingness takes the edge off the severe stress that research scholars have to go through during their academics.

Unlike the University of Hyderabad, the State-funded universities such as OU provide a more free and informal setting for interaction between students and faculty. A student can approach any professor at anytime and resolve their doubts or problems, Kumara Swamy, a research scholar said.“In Central universities, the faculty are very good in their academics, but seem to falter when it comes to understanding the problems of students coming from backward communities and areas. This prevents them from establishing healthy relationship with the students,” he observed, adding that the faculty-student bonding helps students to overcome their problems in OU. If a student has any problem with his or her guide, the university authorities usually ensure that a new guide is allocated to him, he claimed.

The OU faculty too takes extra precautions to ensure that students are not troubled, Faculty of Social Sciences Dean, V. Ravindra Sastry said. “Due to the ongoing Telangana agitations, the OU students are usually emotionally surcharged. To deal with it the university has established a counselling cell to interact with students on a regular basis. This cell also helps in addressing the problems faced by the students,” he explained.

The peer support that one has at OU ensures that one does not get desperate, Kota Raju, university in-charge of student body PDSU said. “There is a general sense of camaraderie at OU, which is usually not the case in Central universities where each student has to worry about his own survival,” he said.

However, student pursuing Ph.D. in science faculties do face the problem of insufficient funding, another research scholar observed. “While students are taken care of in the university, improving research activity, particularly in Science departments, is a different ball game all together,” he said.

Each time a student from marginalised community suffers discrimination, the university authorities point out that they have instituted grievance cells and counselling centers for the students. But to rectify the problem, counselling should be given to the faculty, who indulge in the discriminatory activities, B. Ravi Chandran, a Ph.D. student with English and Foreign Languages University and founder of Dalit Camera, said. “It is ironic that university officials appoint faculty members to counsel the students when their own peers indulge in discriminatory practices. None of the universities have ever held counselling sessions for faculty members,” he observed.



CMRT adopts green concept on its campus

Float like a butterfly

An initiative by an IIT-IIM Grad creates a world of hands-on learning experiences for children, writes PRABALIKA M. BORAH

11.59 pm was the cut off time for the IIT-Bombay students to dash off their resumes for placements. But after a chat with one of the professors, K. Sharat Chandra found himself at the crossroads. “I didn’t know what I should do. I was in a fix. The calculation which Handa sir — my professor who took classes in entrepreneurship at IIM-Ahmedabad — did convince me finally and I knew it is now or never,” he recollects.

That decision resulted in setting up of Butterfly Fields — a hands on learning approach system which comprises various kinds of activities, experiences in science and mathematics. The company provides low-cost models for application-oriented learning to children from eight to 16 years of age. They usually work with government and private schools and has developed models that integrate with the school curriculum, regardless of the Board the school is affiliated to.

“Initially, without any huge capital, I was able to make schools and parents agree with what I was looking to do,” says Sharat, who as an IIT student interned with a bank where he found he is doing nothing more than ‘better’ presentations and excel sheets. But the file load of mathematical analysis clicked. Even that was not enough to make K. Sharat Chandra accept a full time job in the bank. “Is that all I would do as an IITian? I questioned myself,” says Sharat.

During his IIM days, Sharat’s 24 classes with Handa which were 24 field trips had deeply sowed the roots of an entrepreneur. “But I kept wondering about the capital. Amidst this, my desire to visit a ‘foreign country’ was fulfilled through an exchange programme. I went to Germany and since it was all about gathering experience, I used to visit all places possible. This included the SME (small and medium enterprises) sector there,” he says.

What impressed him the most in Germany was the amount of innovation that was evident even at SME businesses, which he realised was because of an education system that encourages students to think out of the box, a complete contrast to the Indian system, where the application of what is learnt is completely ignored, with a greater focus on learning for exams.

“The kids in Germany knew little but it was in-depth knowledge unlike us where we are taught a lot but are flaky,” he adds.

Sharat and his team’s work began by demonstrating to students on subjects like motion, inertia, magnetic fields etc. “Children were seeing the practical explanation but even that wasn’t hands-on,” says Sharat.

Then one day, “Things just changed. After one such demonstration, the principal of Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan asked me how I could make this into a hands-on activity. It was possible but I wasn’t ready with a kit each for the children from Std VI to X at that point of time. I took some time but met the deadline,” smiles Sharat. Now students across the state learn science and math with these kits.

Butterfly Fields isn’t just about science projects since it is designed by an IIT+IIM. There are fun games as well and “my favourite is the trump card game where I beat most of the challengers,” he says with pride. “That’s also because I have designed it,” he says cheekily.



Shaastra symposium

The organisers of the technical festival of the Indian Institute of Technology Madras (IITM), Shaastra,will conduct a symposium on, “Reinventing the agricultural sector.” Through mentorship sessions, field trips, lectures and group discussions, selected students will be given an exposure to the problems and challenges faced by the agricultural sector today.

Any college student enrolled in an undergraduate or postgraduate programme is eligible to participate. The symposium takes place from January 4 to 7, 2014, at IITM.
