well, Manmohan Singh is just biding time till Prince Rahul can take over the kingdom. Then its probably full scale reversal to the Congress of yore, short-visioned and ready to compromise national integrity for power.

Congress, despite a few bright spots, is still filled with unstable retards who are there simply because they sucked up to Mrs. Gandhi enough.

A case in point for the Congress's devisive policies is that they recently called fora religion based census in the Indian Army, particularly focused on the Muslims, and while the entire Army is against it, it won't stop these anti-nationals, would it?

Not that it matters though, I am sure half our politicians have already sold national security for personal gain. Good bye North-East, and nice knowing you people of Chattisgarh, Bihar, Jharkhand and AP, because once the Maoists start a full scale war against the nation, I am sure our esteemed, gutless netas will be scurrying like rats.

Oxford comes wooing in trendy attire
- Outpaced by American universities, chancellor Patten lines up trip


London, Feb.13: Forget the daunting dons and the ivory tower. When you think Oxford, picture a fun campus with modern, up-to-date courses. Even, if you so wish, think Bertie Wooster and boat race night and pinching of policemen’s helmets.

That could be the message from the Oxford chancellor when he visits India as part of his university’s war plans against the likes of Harvard and Yale.

Victory and defeat in the trans-Atlantic battle hinges on Lord Chris Patten’s success in recruiting enough Indians, but he realises his biggest hurdle is the university’s “conservative, stuffy image” in the country. The visit is meant to correct that perception.

Oxford is in a direct “fight” with its Ivy League rivals in America to lure India’s brightest students to enrol, Lord Patten told a British paper yesterday.

“We have to fight very hard to keep our position in the world league table, to stay up there with Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Stanford and MIT,” he said.

“One of the problems in India is that we have a rather conservative, stuffy image. People don’t realise the flexibility and modernity of our courses. We’re falling further and further behind the United States.”

About 17,000 Indian students arrive in Britain yearly compared with nearly 80,000 in the US, where leading colleges receive twice as much funding as their British equivalents.

But Lord Patten will take heart from figures revealed last week that show a sharp increase in Indian students coming to Britain for higher studies despite crippling fees and visa charges. Altogether 16,727 Indian students arrived in the UK in 2004-05, indicating a 14 per cent rise in inflow for two consecutive years.

Cambridge also said yesterday it was committed to attracting the best international students, though its focus has recently been more on China than India. Oxford, too, has twice as many Chinese as Indian students.

Lord Patten, a former European commissioner and governor of Hong Kong, said serious universities needed a coherent strategy for recruiting students from both India and China.

“I hope it will be the first of several visits to India and China over the next few years,” he told the paper. “I don’t think a serious university can do without a properly thought-through strategy for China and India.”

He might seriously consider the strategy of invoking Bertie Wooster’s capers on boat race night and his rather innocuous adventures with Britain’s law-enforcers, who have long enjoyed a reputation for common sense and gentleness.

The British Council believes this is a good time to promote Britain in India against competition from the US, which has become suspicious of foreign students after 9/11. “The British,” its spokesman Guy Roberts said, “have been much more measured”.

Coincidentally or not, the number of Indian students in the UK began climbing significantly soon after the Twin Tower attacks. Some officials believe that if Britain can take advantage of America’s fear of foreign students, their numbers in the UK could treble in 15 years.

Whatever Lord Patten may say, Oxford has not entirely shed its conservatism, though. Many reforms proposed by vice-chancellor John Hood to meet government demands for better governance – such as performance appraisals of academic staff -- have met with strong resistance.

The proposed reforms also give the chancellor -- currently a figurehead -- greater powers, making him chairman of a new board of trustees.

For now, Lord Patten will visit Bangalore, Mumbai and New Delhi to meet Oxford alumni, speak at a business school seminar and discuss ways of raising more money for bursaries for Indian students. He will also co-chair his first annual meeting of the UK-India Round Table in Goa.

The Indians aren't coming

The late Rajiv Gandhi, the last of the Nehru-Gandhi clan to be prime minister of India, had a quip for why so many of his country's bright, young people were leaving home for the west. His pithy reply to critics was "better brain drain than brain in the drain". It seems today's whiz kids agree.
Forsaking their own often tatty universities for the ivory towers of the richer world, Indian students are now the world's most wanted. Eager and smart and thus quite unlike the surly mobs of the west, Indian students can now be found in the front rows of lecture halls from California to Canberra.

This zeal for education, and the ability to pay for it, have not gone unnoticed. Tony Blair and Condoleezza Rice have been wooing groups of Indian students, patiently answering questions from bespectacled teenagers. China, which has only 800 Indian students, is desperate for more, flashing cash and scholarships for physics lectures in Mandarin.

Wearing the mortar board and gown of Oxford University, Chris Patten has this week joined the queue of suitors, bemoaning the fact that not enough Indian students are coming to study among the dreaming spires. There are only 17,000 Indian students in Britain, compared with 80,000 in the US. "We have to fight hard to keep our position in the world league table," he said. The problem, he insists, is one of image: India views its former colonial master as "a conservative, stuffy" place.

There is some truth in the accusation. News stories in India portray America as a land of unbridled opportunity, where Indian scientists and engineers have made it big (the estimated net worth of emigrants to the US from the Indian Insitute of Technology alone is $30bn). Britain carries with it the baggage of its imperial past: a class-bound society in which where you come from still matters more than where you are going.

Yet Patten the former politician also knows that lurking behind this apparent challenge is an opportunity: America's position in Indian hearts is not unassailable. Last year foreign applications to US graduate schools fell by almost a third, and actual enrolment dropped by 6%.

Britain did leave India an important legacy: the English language. And while Indian students are starting to look beyond the States, they still like to speak the lingua franca. In recent years European universities have seen their recruitment rise as they introduce English-language courses. Australia, too, is fast rising in the estimation of Indian students. Bollywood blockbusters such as Salaam Namaste, which focused on the beach antics of Indian expats down under, have done Australia's image no end of good.

Patten's mission is a timely one, as the issue may be a matter of life and death for western institutions. Many universities in the developed world would go under if foreign students suddenly returned home. India is one of the biggest exporters of students in absolute numbers, its educational export making up 5% of all those studying abroad. Little wonder people are bothered about where its brightest brains are going.

IITs to set up more campuses, increase intake

IIT-Delhi is likely to open a campus in Rajasthan, either in Jaipur or Alwar.

IIT-Chennai will start a research centre in BHEL at Trichy, keeping the option of developing it into a campus later.

IIT-Mumbai, which had signed an MoU with the Goa government four years ago, is pursuing the project to start a campus there. It will also upgrade its present campus in Powai.

IIT-Kanpur too will have a new campus.

Maharashtra may get a $1-billion university

New Delhi: In the next three years, India will have a university that will be, hopefully, an equal of such leading academic institutions as Harvard, Stanford or Oxford. All thanks to global metal giant Vedanta’s chief Anil Agarwal who is determined to set up a multi-disciplinary varsity here.

Vedanta Resources Plc Chairman Anil Agarwal has committed an endowment of up to $1 billion to set up the world-class university. “We are in talks with five states and will go with the state government in setting up this university,” Agarwal said without revealing exact location.

However, sources close to Vedanta Resources Plc told Mumbai Mirror that Agarwal has initiated a formal dialogue with Maharashtra and the state is far ahead of others in terms of providing incentives and other facilities to snatch the mega deal.

Even otherwise, according to an Assocham study, Maharashtra tops the chart of states in terms of highest number of educational institutes and their output and this has been a primary criterion for foreign investors in choosing their investment venues. These are just some indications that it will be Maharashtra which will get the $1-billion university.

IT institute may come up in Chennai

An Indian Institute of Information Technology (IIIT), originally proposed to come up near Kancheepuram, is likely to be set up on the information technology corridor in Chennai.

The Union Human Resources Development Ministry is planning to invest close to Rs.100 crore on this new education/training facility for which it is scouting for land.

A proposal to hand over at least 25 acres of government land on Old Mahabalipuram Road for setting up the IIIT may soon be placed before the State Government or the State Cabinet, say official sources.

Unlike the other IIITs, the Chennai-based institute will focus on design and manufacture, an area in which India is lagging behind.

The IIIT-Design and Manufacturing is one of the two such institutions proposed by the MHRD. The other one was started at Jabalpur.

The institute will have an intake of about 600 students at the undergraduate level.

The expertise of the Indian Institute of Technology-Madras will be utilised in developing the curriculum for engineering design at the undergraduate level.

UK wings for aviation school

COIMBATORE: Frankfinn Institute of Airhostess Training is expanding its presence in the country and has entered into a tie-up with UK-based Edexcel, an awarding body providing academic and vocational qualifications. Frankfinn will increase its training centres in the country from the present 49 to 60 by March.

“We would be opening centres in Mysore, Mangalore and Visakhapatnam shortly. Once the expansion is completed, the total intake will go up to 12,000 students,” CL Mohan Narayanan, manager, operations, southern region, Frankfinn, said. While the number of air hostesses required in the country is estimated to be 21,000 in ’10, there is a dearth of talent now, he stated.

The institute offers a one-year diploma in aviation, hospitality and travel management and under the arrangement Edexcel will introduce its BTEC higher national certificate in India through Frankfinn.

All students who enrol for the programme from April would get the certificate once they complete the course, Mr Narayanan said. With around 10,000 students in ’06, Frankfinn would become the largest international Edexcel centre in the world, he said adding, “the certificate will enhance the employment opportunities for students as it’s recognised in 112 countries”.

Village school children go online

CHENNAI: Arul Mozhi, D. Deepa and K. Maunika are first generation learners from hamlets with about 1,000 families in interior Tamil Nadu but they are among the thousands of primary and elementary school children who use computers as a learning tool.

Under a computer aided learning programme launched in September, 82,400 rural children in 412 centres in 30 districts are using software packages produced jointly by the State and the Bangalore-based Azim Premji Foundation. Children answer questions in subjects such as Tamil, English, Mathematics, Science, and Social Science on computer.

Some 200 children from class I to VII took online tests for proficiency in using computers here on Tuesday at the Anna Institute of Management Studies. The children were winners at the block and district level online tests held earlier in February.

Georgia Tech eyes Hyderabad


As news about the university exploring the possibility of expanding its operational base to Hyderabad, spreads; the local Indian community's excitement about such an initiative is commensurate only with our satisfaction at the astounding results achieved by Indian-American students on-site, across America.

Centre gives nod to IISER in Chandigarh

Quote:
The country's third Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER) would be set up in the city's periphery. The Union Government is learnt to have given the go-ahead for the prestigious institution, according to sources in the ministry of science and technology.

Two other IISERs are being set up in Pune and Kolkata. Together, they shall come up at an approximate cost of Rs 500-550 crore. The ministry of human resource development would soon constitute an implementation committee for the latest IISER.

IISER, Kolkata, was likely to start functioning this years but is said to have been delayed due to political reasons. This tangle worked in favour of Chandigarh, sources said.

Once set up, the three institutes would establish a network with professional institutes like IITs and NIITs, universities and colleges across the nation. The IISER in the city's periphery would bring together all undergraduate, postgraduate, doctorate and post doctorate scholars under one roof.

The institute could be expected to have about 2,050 students in its masters' programme, doctoral programme and post-doctoral programme at the time of its full-fledged functioning. However, to begin with, the total strength in its integrated MSc programme would be 1,000 and 1,050 in the doctoral and post doctoral programme.

44 institutions become members of GARUDA Communication Fabric

VELLORE: Forty-four institutions have become members of GARUDA Communication Fabric, India's first high-speed national grid computing initiative, launched by the Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (C-DAC), a scientific society of the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology, in 2004, according to N. Mohan Ram, Chief Technology Officer and Centre Head, C-DAC Centre, Bangalore.

While seven are C-DAC centres, the remaining are external institutions.

These include the Indian Institutes of Technology; Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore; Raman Research Institute, Bangalore; Indian Institute of Astrophysics, Bangalore; Bhaba Atomic Research Centre, Mumbai; Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Mumbai; Institute of Plasma Research, Ahmedabad; Physical Research Laboratory, Ahmedabad; Space Applications Centre, Ahmedabad; National Institute of Radio Astrophysics, National Chemical Laboratory, Pune; Institute of Mathematical Sciences, Chennai and the Madras Institute of Technology, Anna University, Chennai.

While the institutions in Bangalore and Pune have already been connected, the remaining institutions will be connected in two months.

The objectives of the communication fabric are to provide a test bed for research and engineering technologies in grid computing, build a user group that can collaborate on research and technologies and deploy applications of national importance, Mr. Mohan Ram said.

"At present, we have targeted bioinformatics and disaster management, wherein we can quicken the initial official reaction to disasters through quicker and better prediction of the damage and help mitigate the effects of the disasters," he said.

From housing to Olympic size pool: IITB gets a facelift at 50, courtesy alumni

Quote:
Three million dollars for a new convention centre to be designed by Hafeez Contractor; 1.8 million dollars for a planned computer centre and engineering building; 2.5 million dollars for an upcoming gymkhana with an indoor stadium, squash courts and Olympic-size pool. These million-dollar alumni cheques and pledges to pay, are on the way from US, to finance ambitious rebuilding of the nearly half-century-old campus of the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (IITB) with a new look and a new academic, research vision for the next 50 years.

The plan is to give the alma mater a modern makeover—from classrooms, housing, labs and lecture halls to academics, faculty development and governance—for the IITB’s golden jubilee year 2007-2008.

“A lack of funding for maintenance and ordinary renovation has added to the rate of deterioration,” says Misra’s note on the IIT Bombay Heritage Fund website, on the need for a revamp. “Virtually all structures built in the early days of IITB, along with the supporting road and service facilities, are rapidly deteriorating, with many already in a poor state.”

New housing for faculty and students, a new library building, a new nanotechnology centre, new department buildings and an alumni centre are on the wishlist. Budgets are also being considered for new academic programmes, faculty recruitment, travel and research.

The IITB alumni family includes about 30,000 students who graduated since its first batch—about 7,500 alumni are in the US, from where the recent new contributions have come.
The convention centre will be financed with three million dollars pledged by Citigroup’s Victor Menezes. Raj Mashruwala of Tibco Software has pledged 1.8 million dollars for the computer centre and Syntel co-founder Bharat Desai is main sponsor for the gymkhana, along with the IITB batch of 1975. The 1977 batch has partially sponsored new faculty housing being built.

Anna University-Microsoft strategic alliance

Chennai, March 18: Anna University (AU) and Microsoft have announced a 'strategic partnership' to empower the faculty and students across 235 colleges of Anna University, which is one of the largest technical Universities in India, on the latest range of Microsoft's development software and tools.

This agreement is a first of its kind, under which students and faculty will have access to all the Microsoft developer tools which can be used by the students both at their institutions as well as hostels and homes on their personal computers for academic and research purposes. So far, Microsoft as part of its mission to enhance the skill development of students and academia has entered into agreements with individual departments of colleges across India.

Additionally, as part of the agreement, Microsoft will assist in setting up Microsoft technologies in labs at select institutions and conduct faculty development programs on its curriculum related technologies. The agreement will have a significant impact on the employability of its students in the corporate world by exposing them to the global cutting edge technologies and empowering them with skill sets that are relevant. This becomes more imperative in light of the recent NASSCOM McKinsey report of 2005 which had cited a shortage of 500,000 adequately skilled professionals in India over the next five years and which will be the determining factor in India's dream run to achieve the targeted software export revenues.

Making the announcement, Dr D Viswanathan, Vice Chancellor, Anna University, who has always been at the forefront in keeping students interest in mind, said, "This is a continuation of our relationship with Microsoft, which has already setup a .NET Center of Excellence, over four years ago within the Guindy Campus. The centre has been quite active and has benefited the student and academic community quite immensely. We believe this is a great move ahead in our efforts to prepare and ignite the interests of our student community."

"This partnership is a path-breaking initiative from Microsoft and a reinforcement of our commitment to realising the potential of the Indian academia and student community as India marches into the global knowledge economy," said S Somasegar, Corporate Vice President, Microsoft Corporation.

Anna University is striving to reach greater realms in the annals of technical education. The university has endeavoured to provide the best of facilities and infrastructure to its student community and teacher fraternity. The University serves as a Centre for Excellence for fostering cooperation and exchange of ideas between the academia and industry. The transformation of classroom technology from hardware and software into tools for teaching and learning depends on knowledgeable and enthusiastic teachers for which they need to acquire core-technology competencies and skills. Anna University is in the process of establishing a Knowledge Data Centre coupled with a Technology Incubator Centre wherein students will be in a position to transform their thinking into innovative products. An information and communication technology park is being planned towards this objective
