    In the satsang, Amma emphasized the importance of developing a meditative mind and loving nature. Following this,

    Amma led the devotees during bhajans and the Manasa puja. The most awe-inspiring vision was Ammas darshan,

    wherein she hugged every individual with impartial, soothing and unconditional love.

    Seva activities undertaken by students and faculty of the school, in collaboration with the residents of the Ashram

    included serving of food, cleansing of utensils, and managing the throng of devotees. The selfless service of volunteers

    from Amrita Vidyalayam and Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham was lauded by Amma and all the attendees.

    soulful renderings of bhajans, which was later followed by euphonious melodies praising Lord Shiva from Raaga, the

    music club. A mime emphasising the essence of empathy in life and a skit highlighting how ignorance is the word when

    another is in trouble, were presented by Abhinaya, the drama club. Narthana, the dance club, depicted the fiercely

    protective nature and wrath of Lord Shiva through Rudra Tandava. A graceful classical dance by the girls was an

    encouraged students to code by providing them with

    platform, opportunity and incentive.

    The contest was a huge success. It saw a fabulous turn-

    out of around a 100 enthusiastic participants. The

    questions were good ones and served as a brain

    tickling challenge to the contestants. Each team could

    have at most 3 members and were given an hour and a

    half to crack 6 programming problems which were to

    be submitted from a team Hacker Rank account.

    conducted a hands on training session on the

    technology of the week, 'Chat Bots'. The session helped the students learn static and dynamic types of

    chat bot responses using a float bot model and an

    IDE. The platform Gupshup was used to create these

    Bots. Mr. Keshavan from Amrita TBI then

    demonstrated the Amazon Elixa. In the afternoon

    session, a Botathon was conducted, and the attendees

    demonstrated the bots that they had built. The

    attendees learnt a lot about Chatbots as a user friendly

    tool to help people find information.

    On the second day, attendees were introduced to

    JavaScript by Mr. Madhu Kiran (S6,CSE), an

    executive member of FACE. Mr. Prashanth

    explained the need to understand the fast growing

    technology of Progressive Web Apps (PWA) which

    use modern web capabilities to deliver an app-like

    user experience, and traced the fundamentals of web

    server and scripting codes of PWA.

    The two speakers shed light on the various

    applications of and advancements in this trending

    technology. The session ended with the declaration of

    the winners of the Botathon, who showcased

    creativity and unique trains of thought. The event

    came to an end with a Q&A session, which imparted

    a lot of knowledge on the aspects related to the

    coding.

  • Mr. Nandawadekar Ajit Dattu (S4, M.Tech. in Power Electronics) has received Young Researcher Award

    and won 1st prize worth Rs. 60000/- for his work

    Multifunctional Induction Machine in IET

    Karmveer Expo-2017, held at Nashik, Maharashtra

    during 21st 22

    nd March, 2017.

    The main contribution was to configure an induction

    motor to operate using single phase as well as three

    phase AC supply. This is achieved by modelling the

    induction motor as a welding transformer through

    some modification in the stator winding. Welding

    transformer requires low voltage and high current for

    joining of two metal parts by electrical arc welding.

    The running and starting winding of the single phase

    operation are placed in the same slots that are used

    for the three phase operation. So at a time anyone of

    them can be used to supply or produce excitation in

    order to employ rotation of rotor.

    VYOM - The Astrophysics club has procured a celestial telescope "Celestron 130 EQ" partially funded by the

    School Management.

    The club aims at the display of the night sky including moon and its surface features, Jupiter and its satellites

    etc., celestial objects to the students and faculty of our college. Further the telescope will be developed with a

    motor as a project from the members of the VYOM in the coming years which can help one to track various

    celestial events with ease.

    Regular night sky shows will be a part of the VYOM activities from now on, due to the existence of the

    telescope. The scope is further planned to be upgraded for spectroscopy studies of celestial objects which can

    also be a amateur research work for the beginners. The work on spectroscopy studies will be planned in the

    coming years.
