IIT-Bombay starts Techfest preparation

Despite it being held in the year-end, preparations for Techfest 2014, the technological extravaganza of the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay, are already underway. Aman Mantry, a third year student and head, media and planning, said that at a recent meeting, Techfest duties were handed over by the old guard to the new one. “In all, 23 members, including one overall coordinator and 22 managers, were appointed.

A team of over 800 coordinators and organisers along with their respective managers will work in sync to conceptualise, manage, and execute Techfest,” he said. Sunny Raj, a third year metallurgical engineering undergraduate and overall coordinator of the fest, said, “The overall theme and conceptualisation will be done in summer. We will keep in mind to relate to both the student and non-student communities within and outside the country.”

In Gurez, at the upper edge of northern Kashmir Valley, a serene calm prevails along the Line of Control. The undulating rhythms of the Kishanganga river that rolls through bowl-shaped valleys surrounded by the Himalayas on all four sides put Switzerland to shame.

Besides controlling food inflation, the most challenging task before Narendra Modi is to create jobs for millions of young men and women, some of whom were responsible for his resounding victory in the elections. It is one thing to promise jobs and another to actually create them.
