Malviya has been chosen by India for country's highest civilian award Bharat Ratna along with former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee. 

"Malviya has taught value based education to the world which is still relevant in this (Indian sub-continent) region," Jha said at a function organised by Madan Mohan Malviya Mission here to mark his 153rd birth anniversary. 

Malviya founded the Banaras Hindu University (BHU) and became one of the torchbearers of the freedom struggle acting as a bridge between the Moderates and the Extremists. 

"Many Nepalese have also acquired higher education from BHU and those who have been educated from the university are showing their talent in many fields in the country till today," Jha said while highlighting the contributions made by Malviya in spreading value based education in the Indian sub-continent.

Malviya founded the Banaras Hindu University (BHU) and became one of the torchbearers of the freedom struggle acting as a bridge between the Moderates and the Extremists.
Indian Ambassador to Nepal Ranjit Rae said the ancient relation existing between Kashi-Vishwanath and Pashupatinath symbolises the ancient bond of friendship between Nepal and India which needs to be nurtured from time to time. 

"The education system introduced by Malviya is not only based on eastern norms and values but it is equally incorporating modern ideas and scientific knowledge," Rae said. 

BHU has also produced many Nepalese scholars, litterateurs, politicians and intellectuals who are holding important positions in different fields in Nepal, which symbolises closer ties between the two countries, Rae added.

Kerala education sector goes e-way, plans digital textbooks


THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: In a major initiative that may revolutionise the general education sector, Kerala is all set to introduce multi-media "Digital Collaborative Textbooks" (DCT), the first of its kind in the country, in government schools. 

This digital textbook will comprise information contributed by persons around the globe in audio or video formats, besides the scanned soft-copy of normal textbooks. 

 PHI LEARNING EBOOKS


The state government has decided to launch the DCTs in government schools on an experimental basis from next academic year starting in June, A Shahjahan, Secretary, Department of General Education told. 

Students and teachers can access the DCTs with the support of tablets and e-learning centres set up at schools. 

IT@School, under the state General Education Department, is planning to formally launch the "digital collaborative textbooks" early next month. 

"The digital collaborative textbooks is definitely a significant step in the education sectorof the country. We are planning to formally launch the DCTs next month," Shahjahan said. 

A senior official of IT@School said Kerala is the first state to introduce this kind of multi-media textbooks. 

"At the normal level, the DCTs are e-books in which ordinary textbooks are scanned and uploaded. But, a plethora of information, contributed by different people including experts in different subjects make them unique," IT@School Executive Director K P Noufal told PTI. 

He said over 3.7 million students and about more than two lakh teachers in the state-run schools are expected to benefit from the the ambitious project. 

The department was also ready to share digital textbook model with private schools also which follow state syllabus. But, they should provide hardware and other supporting facilities to get the access, he said. 

Detailing the features of the digital book, Noufal said IT@School would add several Hard Spots (relatively tough areas) in the Digital Textbook which would be published in a format open to all. 

Anybody in the world can add their own explanations in these Hard Spots in audio or video formats. The audio and video files can be sent to the 'Academic Centre' of IT@School, where experts will verify them. 

"After scrutiny, if found acceptable, this will be uploaded and attached under the Hard Spot. Hence, there will be thousands of different explanations under each Hard Spot," he said. 

Noufal said eminent personalities, belonging to different fields, can directly contribute to the state's education sector through this DCTs. 

"I think this new concept will enable ISRO Chairman K Radakrishnan to explain about moon or about the celebrated Mars mission to our children through a video or audio clip," he said. 

Even a farmer can explain about a seed or a conventional method in agriculture or a heart surgeon can tell children about heart ailments in connection with a lesson dealing with such topics, he said. 

"The identified Hard Spot can become a part of the school textbook," he said, adding, they had already received over 3,000 contents on different topics to add in the digital text.

The official said not only students but teachers would also benefit from these innovative textbooks. 


A total of Rs 50 crore is outlayed for the project, planned to be implemented with the technical support of the state-run Centre for Development of Imaging Technology (C-DIT), he said. 

Order had already been placed for buying over 5,000 tablets for the project in the in ital phase. Steps had also begun to set up e-learning centres at the schools. 

The tablets, costing an average amount of Rs 2,000 each, would be distributed among high school students while the rest of the students could depend e-learning centres to avail digital collaborative textbooks, he said. 

The tablets would be given to government school students free of cost and while going to the next class they should return it to the school authorities, he said. 

The official also expressed interest to share the innovative digital text model with other states to achieve complete digitisation in the country's education sector.

Last year eight students had managed to score 100 percentile. Also, ten people had scored in 99.99 percentile bracket, including a girl. On Neha's performance Kapoor said: "We want to congratulate her for the achievement. It's a rare distinction for girls on CAT. She has done remarkable well in both the sections of the test and we like to wish her success as we need women leaders.

IIT Madras registers 13 per cent job offers from start-ups


In the first phase of the placement season till December 19, 295 companies have offered jobs to 880 students, compared to 263 companies which offered jobs to 905 students during the entire placement season ending April 30, 2014.
The booming placement season has begun with the humungous pay packages from top companies and that's what making headlines every day. The start-up brigade is also not far behind. It has been reported that the start-ups have hired 114 of the 880 students - or 13 per cent - placed at the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras at the end of the first phase of placement.
According to reports, among the start-ups that made job offers were Ola Cabs (29 offers), Flipkart (19) - behind only information technology giant Cognizant Technology's 36 offers - and Urban Ladder (13). Housing.com made 11 offers and Snapdeal.com over six. However, how many of the last two companies' offers were accepted wasn't clear.
Babu Viswanathan, professor, mechanical engineering and advisor, training and placement, IIT- Madras was quoted as saying "This year, around 65 start-ups participated in the placement, and offered a total of 122 jobs. The number of offers accepted out of this was 114."
As per reports, the start-ups on average offered Rs 10-20 lakh per annum as salary, which is competitive in the market, and students were also keen to take up the offers, since visibility in start-ups is higher right from early on. Last year, only three-to-five start-ups had participated in the placement process.
