Why A Boarding School? And How to prepare your child for it?


Dr. Rishi Khurana
Principal
Shanti Gyan International Sr. Sec. Boarding School,
Goyla,Nr. Sec-19 Dwarka

There are many reasons for parents and children to choose residential schools such as: -

· Better Education/High Academic Standards
· Better at Meeting Personalized Needs (tutors, sports, extra-curricular)
· Better Preparation for University
· Physically and Emotionally Safe Learning Environments
· More character, morals and values
· A well-rounded education

Normal day schools have often been criticized as elitist, class-conscious in a nominally class-less society, where those who could afford to pay the fees sent their children to meet others of the same class and values and to make contacts to serve them for the rest of their lives. This emphasis is intended to leaven the mixture of students and spread the effects of a day school education throughout the society.

During a period of rapid change in education, some parents are concerned at the values and ethics to which their children are being exposed. By choosing a day school, they may be able to select more directly the qualities they prefer for their children's environment. Discipline and academic achievement are often emphasized in day schools and combined with athletic and artistic endeavours to fulfill a more traditional curriculum. A residential school will also focus on the need for inter-dependence and social skills to allow faculty and students to live together in harmony, acknowledging the needs of ethers in a more or less protected setting.

Residential schools have often been the academic choice for families who are mobile, either because adequate education doesn't exist in their present location, or because educational and psychological continuity that increases in importance as children mature may be compromised if the family re-locates. For some of these young people, the school becomes their most stable physical environment, since if the family moves, the central element of 'home' has changed. Visiting the family in the new environment is important, but some allegiance will have been transferred if adaptation to the school has taken place.

Some of the students at any residential school will be there because of problems, either within their families, with society or in academic subjects. Each school will deal with these issues in its individual way; some schools specialize in helping children with their difficulties, and some rely on a tightly structured environment and low teacher-student ratio to keep problems under control.

In examining a school it is essential to be open in discussing your reasons for looking for a new educational environment, since the right school for the child must rely on a 'good fit' to be successful.
Tips for Preparing Children for the Boarding School

Remember that going to boarding school is a major transition—for the child and the family. Learn all you can about the skills needed to handle other transitions in life successfully and seek to apply them when facing the transition to boarding school.

Be sensitive to the individual needs of your children. Children are not all ready at the same age to face separation from parents. If one of your children seems particularly insecure and fearful of the separation, investigate other options for that child’s education to allow for additional maturity. A year or two delay may prevent many years of difficulty later.

Get as much information as possible about the boarding school before sending your children. Find out about its purpose, philosophy, discipline, rules, the expectations/privileges/restrictions for you as parents. If you don’t understand something, seek clarification from appropriate sources. Prefer schools which are exclusively boarding as there will be no any discrimination among day scholars and boarders.

If at all possible, visit the boarding school and meet the boarding home parents with your children before you have to leave them there. This will give you, as a family, an opportunity to talk specifically about what it might be like for your children to go there, and they will be able to go to a place that is at least somewhat familiar. You as parents will also be able to visualize your children in their setting when they are away from you. All of these things make it easier to maintain a sense of being “connected” even when you are physically separated.

Talk about the boarding school experience well in advance—be realistic about what will be enjoyable and what will probably be difficult. Express your feelings honestly, and encourage your children to do so as well—without trying to talk them out of feeling the way they do or telling them they shouldn’t feel a certain way.

When your children go to boarding school, allow them to take along some reminders of “home” that are meaningful to them—family pictures, favorite toys or books, pictures to hang, a special pillow or blanket.

Provide your children with some tangible reminder of your love to take along to the boarding school. Affirm your love to them and be sure they understand—and feel—that you are not sending them away because they are a bother to you or keep you from doing things that are more important to you than they are.

Message for Education Hub from Sh. Manish Sisodia


Message of Sh Sandeep Marwah ji for Education Hub


Be a good role model for your kids


Nidhi Kataria

There are many different things that I take into consideration when it comes to parenting.Parents have many different responsibilities but there are three in particular that I think are very important.Being a good role model is important, as well as listening to your children and disciplining them appropriately.If you want to be a good parent you have to put your kids first.The first responsibility that I think is very important is being a good example for your kids.Parents are examples for their kids whether they like it or not.My kids watch watch and copy everything that I do, and even if I don't think their listening they are listening.If they see me finishing school and working good job thats what they will expect to do themselves because that is all that they know.Children are like sponges.I want to show my kids how to be a good person by being a good person myself.As a parent I want my children to know that they can be anything they want to be, but at the same time I am controlling their physical and moral environment so that they can be good people.Iwant them to be in an environment where they can develop habits of honesty, generosity,and responsibility.I think one of the greatest things that I can do for my kids is to take them seriously and listen to them.My seven year old is constantly showing me everything that he learns and its easy to tune out sometimes, but I think its very important not to.It is important to listen because if you dint give your kids enough attention they might try and seek it in a negative way.It is important to listen to your children when they have learned something new or want to tell you something that they are proud of.Children seek your approval, and that gives them confidence.Lastly discipline is another very important responsibility.The best thing to do is to pick your battles, because if you are constantly saying "no" your child will tune it out.You have to be consistent

Moulding Digital Generation into global leaders with Human Values

Dr. (Mrs) Rajee N Kumar 
Principal
N.K.Bagrodia Public School, Dwarka

As an educationist, through this eternal journey in pursuit of educational excellence, we encourage the students to bear a great sense of belongingness, responsibility and compassion for the fellow human beings. We believe that, children are born with innate talents and potential, which just needs to be chiseled with the investment of motivation and guidance to bring their shimmering qualities to the fore.

With advancement in science every year, new technology renders the latest gadgets obsolete. Nothing is permanent and change is the reality of life. Keeping this in perspective, even the teachers who do not change with time could become obsolete, as the gadgets of bygone years. To keep ourselves abreast with the changing pace of time, we, the educationists need to update ourselves and be in sync with the thoughts and ideology of the new generation, “Learning is a journey from the womb to the tomb". Learning never stops and teachers should concentrate on psychoanalytical techniques to impart proper knowledge flow without encouraging rote learning to boost students’ morale and intelligent quotient. For teachers the three R’s- Respect, Rapport and Recognition are the cardinal principles of teaching the adolescents. Always leave a mark in their lives by being an approachable teacher and a mentor whom they will remember fondly throughout their life.

I also urge the parents to interact with their children with love, not with anger and use total positive thoughts instead of negative emotions. It is always seen that, whenever, children commit mistakes we, as adults, let off steam and the children only develop skills to cope with parental pressure and teachers’ anger, by hiding facts and in the process, everyone loses sight of the main issue. So remember, children will listen and learn only if you deal with them lovingly and rationally. Parents must listen carefully to their wards and give quality time and have patience to remove the behavioral viruses entering their homes. This can be done, by having family lunches or dinners together with healthy discussions without the television and internet intruding your conversation.

21st century skills are the skills today’s children need to thrive in school, college and beyond. The 3R’s- learning basic Reading, Writing and Arithmetic is still a must. But this is not enough, as our children need additional cognitive skills to withstand today’s competitive world. They need to synthesize information to communicate effectively and to collaborate in the process of development. The world has transformed into a knowledge economy. Apparently, the present generation, needs to be differently motivated as they are brought up on internet. To this purpose, employment of technological advancement is quintessential!

We venture far beyond narrow thresholds; in a global community consequently, comprehension of global issues besides the importance of health and wellbeing is indispensible. Hence, nurturing 21st century skills such as adaptability, leadership, collaboration, flexibility and self-direction, we ensure global survivability. As a 21st century teacher, one needs to pull oneself to be a role model for the students, advocating positivity to inculcate self belief. A modern day teacher can make a difference in the lives of children playing multifarious roles nurturing young minds to be an agent of change.

Let us enlighten ourselves with the vibrant colours of education so that we bring up the digital generation who will develop into global leaders with human values.

Role of Schools in the Development of Personality of Students


V.P. Tandon
(Chairman Vandana and Kamal Group of Institutions)

I am of the concerted view that hard work provides knowledge, knowledge creates confidence, confidence improves performance and performance results in all faceted development of one’s personality. In the process of development of personality, the schools play a very important role. It is at the school level that students learn active habits, variety of knowledge-able things, creative skills and social values, which have a great effect on their thinking and doing. The contribution of the teacher as a role model also goes a long way to have long lasting impact on the personality of the students. That is why great schools had been producing known political leaders, thinkers, philosophers, educationists, technocrats and scientists.

Vandana and Kamal group of institutions has been activity engaged in providing moral and quality education with scientific outlook for the children of less privileged, deprived and poor strata of the society, which has been the Mission of Vandana & Kamal Group of institutions. This Group of Institutions includes, Vandana International Sr. Sec. School, sector-10, Dwarka, New Delhi, Kamal Model Sr. Sec.

Oregano leaves Boosts Immunity - Amit Kaur, AKP HEALING INDIA



View video @link: https://youtu.be/_HQc0TzqAVo

Oregano leaves Boosts Immunity. Two of the most important components of oregano are rosmarinic acid and thymol, both of which are powerful antioxidant compounds that have been closely linked to reducing oxidative stress in the body. Free radicals are the destructive by-products of cellular metabolism that can cause cancer and other chronic diseases. Thus, adding oregano to your diet by sprinkling it on your meals can improve your immune health and keep your body safe from some of the most dangerous and silent killers.

Be in your child’s life: TODAY

Jaspreet Kaur, Vice Principal -Bal Bhavan International School, Sector 12,Dwarka
Today the Youngsters need to know and understand themselves first, their potential, their feelings and emotions, their position in life and in society and their strengths and weaknesses. They need to have a clear sense of their own identity.

“Parents are a child’s first teachers and role models” They are responsible for shaping up the child’s behavior and implementing positive values in them. Children listen, observe and imitate their parents. So it is important that they should be good role models the kids would want to follow.

All parents want to raise their children in such a way that they grow up to become happy and functional adults. As a parent we try to provide everything to our children. However, along with facilities and luxuries there are many things in life that are very important. Education is very important in one’s life, but to be self-sufficient adult, our child should learn some life skills, which is need of the hour.

The term life skills describe a set of basic skills acquired through learning and/or direct life experience that enable individuals and groups to effectively handle issues and problems commonly encountered in daily life. They include creativity, critical thinking, problem-solving, decision-making, the ability to communicate and collaborate, along with personal and social responsibility that contribute to good citizenship.

Many of us take life skills for granted. But the fact is life skill helps children become independent and live life smoothly. Here are some life skills,that parents can take up to bring up a positive turnover:

· These days there is cutthroat of competition in outside world and we need to prepare our child face it effectively. For this he or she should be able to think critically so that he or she is capable of observing and analysing any kind of situation to come up with smart solutions.

· Let’s make our child understand the importance of being organized and set some rules for them. We might feel tempted to set up a messed room, but resist; let your child take responsibility and be organized.

· Social skill is the basic life skill that should be taught right from the time child is a toddler. Let your child learn how to play well with others because when he will grow up he will be able to handle teamwork successfully and interact with other more efficiently and impressively.

· Respecting elders is something we would want a kid to build as his etiquette. Help him via setting an example.

· Parents should practise what they preach to their children and avoid hypocrisy at all times when it comes to various situations, dealing with other people in the family or relations.

The parents’ role should be to expose children to various situations and people that build their confidence, self-esteem and boost their power to distinguish between the correct and incorrect to build their integrity.

The formal education system, today has also tended to prioritise knowledge at the expense of other aspects of our personalities, believing that an increase in knowledge will automatically lead to positive changes in attitudes and behaviours.

Parenting is nothing short of a challenging experience and it isn’t a smooth road, lot of turbulence on the way. But we will be able to handle everything wonderfully if we just keep calm and deal with our child in the right way. Always be mindful of the fact that being too strict or too easy isn’t going to help. Finding a balance is the best way to handle any situation. Be Communicative. Remember that your child’s good habits always begin at home. A good habit for children helps your child grow up soon and be a wonderful and successful human being. Be a mentor to your child always.

Remember: Children close their ears to advice, 
but open their eyes to example.

GOOD PARENTING FOR CHILD S HAPPINESS

Dr. Seema Ahuja
Principal
Vedas International School
Greater Gurgaon


Raising a happy, healthy child is one of the most challenging task a parent can have - and also one of the most rewarding. There is no well defined definition of raising children, a few suggestions could go a long way in ensuring the standard rule for children. Different children may need different levels of attention, expression of love and toughness.

1. You should not try to consider your child an investment of your future. In fact you should just see how to enjoy, nurture and support him. Let him become what he wants to become. You should not try to mould your child according to your understanding of life.

2. You should not spoil your child with too much of pampering. It is usually the consequence of giving a child things in place of love - things like leniency, lowered expectations or material possessions.

3. You should be involved in your child s life which means you will have to rethink and rearrange your priorities. You will have to be with him mentally as well as physically. Being involved does not mean doing your child s homework.

If you are doing your child s homework or correcting it then you are not letting the teacher know what the child is learning.

3. You should set limits which would help your child develop a sense of self - control and self - direction. You should establish and set rules and it should not vary from day-to-day in an unpredictable manner.

4. The most important disciplinary tool is consistency. You should never hit your child, those who are spanked, hit or slapped are more prone to fighting with other children. Best way to be firm with your child or give him 'time out' which work better and do not involve aggression.

5. The best way to get respect from your child is to treat him respectfully. If you are genuinely interested in giving your child a good upbringing then you should first transform yourself into a peaceful and loving human being.

6. You should model a healthy lifestyle and good habits such as regular exercise and proper nutrition in front of your child.

7. You should support spiritual or religious development and participate in spiritual or religious activities so that your child will also automatically have the same inclination.

8. You should take precautions to protect your child and maintain awareness of the child s activities and friends.

9. You should maintain a healthy relationship with your spouse.

10. Most importantly you should keep a minimal use of mobile phone in front of your child.

These 10 good parenting skills would help parents to see their child blossom.

THEATER IN TEACHING: MY EXPERIENCE AS A TEACHER

Prof. Prasannanshu
National Law University, New Delhi

Teaching and learning are naturally a joyful process. However, many a time, we as teachers fail to preserve this nature of education, and somehow succeed in making it a burden if not punishment. I am reminded of Tagore’s following words, ‘Thus the greatest of educations for which we came prepared is neglected, and we are made to lose our world to find a bagful of information instead. We rob the child of his earth to teach him geography, of language to teach him grammar. His hunger is for the Epic, but he is supplied with chronicles of facts and dates.’

In a classroom, we often are talking about stories rather than enjoying them, and in turn forcing the students to cram and emit those facts in the examination without absorbing and relishing them.

I think in my early career, I followed the same practice, but soon realized that stories, plays, and poems are a very potent means of conveying strong messages and information that relates to the world, individual human being, the society, and culture. These pieces of literature are meant to be enjoyed like delicious food, and nourishment would be a natural consequence that will follow without even our noticing. One of the best ways of teaching literary pieces that I have discovered along the way is to let the students imbibe the message through all possible sensory modes, and media, including paintings, music, movies. They have to mingle their creativity into these inputs and express themselves in a holistic way by producing skits and plays.

I hope that more teachers find ways to teach their students this way by immersing them into literature.

School inaugration in Dwarka


The safe, secure & happy childhood: A word to parents

Anuradha Govind
Principal
J M International School, Dwarka

A warm welcome to the season of NURSERY ADMISSIONS with a hope that keeping all the dilemmas and confusions at bay, it is a pleasant experience for parents of our 3+ year olds.

While selecting the ‘right’ school for your kid, give a thought to the kind of development that you would like to see in your child. Explore the vision, curriculum, teaching methods & practices of various schools. Go for a thoughtful institution where the learning and growing up becomes an exciting and enriching experience for your little one and she/he develops into a confident and happy individual who can think, question , has opinion of her/his own and also has the courage to share it with others.

In order to conceive the vision for overall development of children, parents too are expected to go hand in hand with their kid’s school, visualizing the learning process with a progressive outlook. All the curricular games and activities relate the abstract concepts to real life. So please contribute promptly towards all such activities without a second thought.

Coming to academic approach, the ‘why’ is even more important than what and how to learn. So please don’t panic over 1 or 2 marks, A or B grades. Enjoy and acknowledge the process of learning. Believe me, particularly in this age group, ‘conceptual clarity’ and ‘developing a thinking mind’ are important, rather than the marks & grades.

Most importantly the school and the parents must work together to ensure a safe, secure & happy school and home - physically, academically, socially & emotionally, for children, where they develop love for learning & spread happiness in their lives and create a better world for everyone.

PEDAGOGICAL TRANSFORMATION

Pedagogy or the Discipline or the Art or the Science of teaching.

Nita Arora
Head Learner
Sri VIS, Sector-18, Dwarka, New Delhi (India)

In the present times, can we say that the teaching methodologies that worked in the past will still apply or do we have to change the focus of our practice?

In order to answer that, we need to delve in the history of teaching practices. We shall take the example of GURUKUL SYSTEM IN VEDIC PERIOD in India

In Gurukuls, The initial education will be generally given in homes, up to the age of 8 years and later in Ashrams or Gurukuls, followed by education in Centres of higher learning such as Takshila.

Gurukuls were free and were not dependent on parents paying fee but students could offer fields, livestock and/or elements of daily needs to Gurus or even nothing, as per their economic condition. Students would seek alms and offer to the Gurus for running the ashram. In general, the whole society would promote education.

Gurukuls were residential, separate for girls and boys, students of different social classes studied together. Different shastras were taught and students were allowed to specialize in a field of their interest.

The objectives of education were:

1. Development of Self-control
2. Development of character
3. Generation of sociability or social awareness
4. Integral development of personality
5. Propagation of purity
6. Preservation of knowledge and culture

We find that the scholars have found the Gurukul System the best and it did give many scholars of unparalleled learning and repute to India.

TEACHER CENTRIC to STUDENT CENTRIC
In the present times, the pedagogical innovations are needed to shift the focus from what and how to teach to “How to learn”.

We have to empower our students to feel the need for learning and then be guided to learn the art of learning. Create a need and then teach, how to fulfill that need, rather than equating education as filling of an empty vessel.

Students must be encouraged and empowered to seek and create knowledge.

The learning that a teacher has amassed, cannot be transferred in the time spent in schools and colleges, similarly not the entire body of knowledge could find its place in the prescribed text books , hence, we have to make our learners , proficient in how to read and read between the lines.

In the age of technological era, how to search for the information, how to conduct empirical and research studies from upper primary/middle classes onwards.

The teaching focus has to shift to integrated rather than subject-centric, collaborative as well as individualized, hands- on learning rather than theoretical, flip learning from home to school, from learner to class, rather than school/teacher to learner/home.

Education has to be related to real life rather than abstract teaching being applied later in life. The Abstract will lose its relevance for the children, if not related to life.

In the present context, till Secondary stage, there is fixed curriculum in most schools, and only a few schools allow children to choose other subjects.

Even in the subjects made mandatory, most students may not find relevance of the complex concepts/terms they are made to learn; in terms of application in life; now or later. Also, unfortunately most of the teachers are unable to link the relevance themselves, and insist on learning for the sake of examination results or the job market; as the ultimate reward/goal of learning; leaving the learner losing interest. Some students drop out of formal schooling for this very reason as without interest, results also do not materialize.

We have to create a need for the learning and also arouse interest in learning. It can only happen, if there is sustained joy in learning not only for its own sake but the learner experiences a deep love and need for learning. We need excited and joyful teachers, who infect their students with a lot of their own enthusiasm and also share the joy of newer learning themselves constantly. Such a teacher will relate concepts to life, making schooling joyful, igniting, sustaining interest, arousing creativity and empowering the learner, for assuming the ownership of his learning.

It has to move away from exam based system to either fulfilling a career aspirational need or of pure academic interest for seeking and creating knowledge

Many schools have put considerable efforts in developing newer models of learning. Some schools have developed the concept of Learning Minutes, or the time allotted to self- learning time given to each student per subject, during school hours.

Some schools use the phrase ‘Leading me to lead my learning’ for setting and meeting personal learning goals.

Our school has developed the idea of ‘external/play tool of learning strategies’ in which learning continues from playgrounds and external visits to classes.

What is needed is a stronger emphasis on integrated and/or inquiry based learning.

We also need to empower the teachers to allow them to innovate and try newer ideas. Teacher Education and training has received the maximum focus in this training and has generated small pockets of Action Research in each so called progressive school and even traditional school. Teaching as Inquiry should be adopted, if not already done. We may implement it by having a regular time slot for teachers to think together and share their professional inquiries, every week. It may be in curricular or cross -curricular groups.

Sri VIS has the rare distinction of having nine of its teachers acknowledged and awarded for innovative teaching practices in Science and Mathematics by the Directorate of Education in 2017-18, the only private school from the district South West. 4 teachers and the Head teacher were selected by NDTV, India Today and Educomp for innovation at National level in 2016-17 and again in 2017-18. We need to continue to rediscover potential and create centres of excellence and integrate the best practices in the whole school pedagogy, then only we shall do justice to all.

It is the need of the hour to address the malaise the society faces- of nepotism and administrative slumber.

Education must receive its due and should be recognized as the only force for developing and nurturing the human potential. It is high time country sees its population as a resource and provides opportunities to the young generation and adults to contribute responsibly; rising over narrow self-interests and differences.

CYBERSECURITY AND TECH EXPECTATIONS FROM BUDGET 2018


PAVAN DUGGALADVOCATE, SUPREME COURT OF INDIA
HEAD, PAVAN DUGGAL ASSOCIATES, ADVOCATES
PRESIDENT, CYBERLAWS.NET


India today, has become ripe as a nation to come up with dedicated allocations of budget on cybersecurity. Earlier, cybersecurity was never given such an importance in the budget but owing to the historical events that have taken place in India, post demonetization, specific allocations on cybersecurity budgets is a sine qua non if any actions are to be taken against the massively increasing cybersecurity breaches. Not just specific allocations, but spending heads within different categories of cybersecurity spendings in the budget need to be allocated, so that there is more clarity on the appropriate financial support and various capacity building measures in this direction.

The 10% figure of allocation to cybersecurity in the entire IT Budget is extremely meagre. India is a different ballgame altogether, and if it has to become a digitally empowered nation and a global IT superpower that it aims to be, then there needs to be a bigger percentage figure allocated to cybersecurity, of the total IT Budget in order to be able to create a mechanism that will survive the growing attacks by state and non-state actors on the Indian Critical Information infrastructure. The need for more spending in India on cybersecurity is higher than the global average because of India’s high aspirations and hopes in the Digital India program. Cybersecurity is the foundation fulcrum and if that is not adequately addressed, the entire Digital India Program may be prejudicially impacted.

India needs adopt a ‘leapfrogging method’ rather than a traditional one. With emerging technologies like IoT (Internet of Things), AI (Artificial Intelligence), Blockchains etc., spending needs to be done in the said emerging sectors, both the corporate and government level. By insisting on government departments on having CISOs in place, India can instantaneously put focus on the significance of cybersecurity.

A hybrid approach needs to be taken by keeping in mind the existing technologies as well as putting focus on new technologies. As a growing digital power, India cannot exclude concentration on newly emerging technologies like IoT, blockchain and AI, as they are more critical and can help in becoming catalysts to further India’s growth.

We are witnessing triple convergence. Magic technology DIGITAL WORLD

Television and Radio have been with us for nearly a century; print for more than 500 years. Yet in just last two decades, we have connected over two & half billion people through internet and communication devices. And by the end of 2018 over half the world’s population will have the option to connect and collaborate with each other.

Steve Jobs spent his last few years before his death on devising fifth generation iPod that also does video - to screen home movies, music videos and TV shows downloaded from the iTunes stores. This dissemination of information that takes place seamlessly empowers individuals in more than one way.

It offers opportunities to those who have been by-passed by the traditional mass media –particularly newspapers. Hence social media isn’t just a game or a pastime. 

An estimated one hour of video footage is uploaded to the web for every minute of real time. This will grow exponentially over the next five years. This new video content will be available on any screen – in our living rooms or in our pocket – and will bring together all the diverse media which matters to us, from videos of family and friends to news, music, sports, gardening, cooking and more.

In the next five years, users will be at the centre of their video experience, they will have more access to more information. It will mean the birth of a truly global village that always stays connected.

Similarly there are trillion of pages on the World Wide Web. Few years down the road, it will make little sense even to estimate the number. Around a hundred billion books have been published in the half-millennium since the invention of printing by German blacksmith Johannes Guttenberg around 1440 AD. If every language and edition is taken into account that volume of information represents less than a month’s worth of the content currently being uploaded on the net. It is as if ‘real-time’ digital revolution has gone public. This scene reminds us of Marshal Mucluhan who in his book “Understanding Media” says that all technologies change us as we use them: “we shape our tools, and thereafter our tools shape us.”

One of the key enablers of this new wave technology is the rise of two forms of social media. One is the ‘Expressive social media’, which includes Facebook, Blogs, Twitter, YouTube, Whatsapp, photo sharing sites like Filcker and other social networking sites. Nowadays Indians use these social media platforms to discuss and debate, and articulate their own views for information of others to react and respond. The people formerly known as the audience are those who were on the receiving end of a media system that ran one way, in broadcasting pattern, listening / viewing without the option to participate, respond and interact. However, in this new emerging scenario audience becomes the broadcaster.

The other form is the ‘Collaborative media’, which includes sites such as Wikipedia and other forms of open resources. Collaborative platforms means marketers today no longer have full control over their brands because they are now competing with the collective power of consumers. In the process, consumers become ‘prosumers’.

The second decade of the 21st century has rightly been called the "decade of mobility" with media content creation, access and consumption going through enormous changes, leaving its imprint on all media industries - advertising, broadcast journalism & production, public relations, online journalism, events and social media.

Owing to these changes, the media landscape continues to evolve dynamically in the times we live. We at Apeejay Institute of Mass Communication (AIMC) are committed to imparting and fostering knowledge that challenges the students to think beyond the obvious, be ahead of trends and harness their potential to become leaders in their chosen field. With over 14+ years experience in media education, the institute alumni have excelled in their profession and are today in top positions across media platforms - both in India and abroad - and continue to drive the media industry forward and spur growth in the organizations they are serving, bringing immense repute to the institute.

Apeejay Education Society (AES) that is celebrating 50 years of commitment to education is known for inculcating values and knowledge in students by facilitating the exchange of ideas between students, industry experts and academics with the goal of generating cutting-edge, game changing and robust ideas that would propel the media industry.

IRF FOR FAST REPLACEMENT OF SINGLE AND DOUBLE CYLINDER DIESEL ENGINE VEHICLES


International Road Federation, Geneva based global body working for better and safer rods world-wide has urged the government to immediately replace the single and double cylinder naturally aspirated (NA) diesel engine technology for transportation of passengers and goods for last mile urban connectivity with e vehicles .

“India is a unique country in the world which had been using single and double cylinder diesel technology for transportation of passenger’s as well as goods. These type of technologies were used globally mostly for water pumping from ground or for boat rides. In India, single cylinder engines are used in three wheelers for carrying Passengers and Goods. It got extended to four wheelers in the shape of two cylinders for a bit higher capacity around 1500 kg.” said MR K K Kapila, Chairman, International Road Federation (IRF).

“The one and double cylinder technology application has also got extended to personal vehicles e.g. quadracycles. At the same time these category of vehicles are so designed that they can be overloaded most of the time though they are otherwise registered for a much lower capacity. “ said Mr Kapila.

“”They are also the main source of pollution in the urban environment. Bharat stage III, IV or VI emission norms for such category of vehicles are merely a paper exercise for approval purposes as they are miserably abused in the field. Industry normally gives the excuse of enforcement of law on ground. Three wheelers which are approved for three passengers carry 10-15 passengers which is a common sight in urban environment including Punjab, UP, Haryana, Uttarakhand and the NCR, which adds to air and noise pollution.” Said Mr Kapila.
