IIT Kharagpur and Tata Medical Center have signed a MoU through which they will soon enter into an institutional collaboration in education, research and outreach programmes in the field of interdisciplinary medical research and technology. The primary objective is to promote collaborative research projects. Through MoU, it is planned to offer joint programs that will eventually lead to master's degree programs. The integrated M.Sc. - PhD is likely to focus in its first phase on medical physics, nuclear medicine and molecular medical microbiology. This would involve students spending at least one semester in each institute with joint supervision by faculty and scientists of both institutions. The degree will be awarded by IIT Kharagpur.

TL; DR: Do you know if your department has a lift/ramp/handicapped toilet? Help us make this information widely available for your fellow students.

Greetings KGP!
National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF) recently published their yearly rankings for 2017 of educational institutions in India, in which IIT Kharagpur was placed 4th in the overall rankings.

One of the parameters used by NIRF for ranking is 'Facilities for Physically Challenged Students' which asks the following questions:
1. Does your institution have Lifts/Ramps?
2. Does your institution have provision for walking aids, including wheelchairs and transportation from one building to another for handicapped students?
3. Does your institution have specially designed toilets for handicapped students?

We believe this information isn't immediately accessible to the students as well as the administration currently and would like your help gathering it. Please take a minute and help us by editing the relevant Wiki page here:

| A tale of perseverance and resilience – rising above adversities to defeat the odds |
Do you know how a team of just 6 girls fought hard their way to the title of Runner-up in a highly injury-prone sport? Do you know when was the last time KGP Women’s Basketball team had reached into the finals of Inter IIT Sports Meet? No, you might not be knowing! Let us tell you. It was 2004 and it’s after a gap of 13 years that these girls have repeated the same in style by winning the silver medal with an undefeated run till finals! But this journey has neither been a cakewalk nor they were served it easily on a platter. They upped their ante throughout the tournament and took it to another level when it mattered most.
In a fiercely contested contact sport which has high risks of players getting injured, the standard team size used to be 11 and the captain had requested for at least 10. But it was reduced to 9 since the administration felt that there is no need of those 2 extra players in a sport which didn’t have prospects of winning a medal. The Woes didn’t stop there. Out of 9 girls selected for the tournament, one of the most key players had to leave due to a medical emergency at her home. They lost their hopes for the tournament with their star player not being able to make it to the matches. Count goes to 8. One more player sustained an injury and couldn’t play. Count goes to 7. One player was in beginning stages and lacked in the experience that it takes to play at bigger stages. Effective count goes to 6. How do you play a sports tournament which requires 5 players and is highly injury prone? Justina Mathew, Ravali Madambakam, Silla Spandana, Saloni Kirdak, Swati Rawat and Remee Patel did the unthinkable! These six players played the entire tournament (5 matches) without having much luxury of getting substitutes. Out of these players, another key player had an injury in her thumb, which was later found to be a fragment fracture. But she didn't give up, she still took the risk and played all the matches. How about that for an example of perseverance? “A basketball team is like the five fingers on your hand. If you can get them all together, you have a fist.” And they proved so. They not only played, they also topped their pool and steamrolled opponent to reach all the way to finals with 4 wins out of 5 matches in their campaign. And along with winning hearts, they did manage to break the stereotype of basketball being the sport of only tall people. They did it all with good dribblers and long distance shooters.

In the first match itself, they were pitted against the hosts IIT Madras. Loud cheering, home supporters, taller players and what not! And guess what? They announced their arrival in style by beating the favourite hosts by 18-16. The team that no one was giving a chance to put up a fight has suddenly started looking threatening. As if that was not enough, their second successive win over IIT (ISM) Dhanbad by 15-8 sent a strong caution to the winds that they were here to stay, compete and win; not just to make up for the numbers. They gathered the momentum and their victory chariot didn’t stop there. In Quarter Finals, they comprehensively dribbled past IIT BHU by 23-19, sending shivers down the spine of opponents. It was an all-important Semi-Final clash with IIT Bombay. Stakes were high and odds were unfavourable but they rose to the occasion and delivered a nasty blow to Bombay’s hopes of going into Finals. It was tie neck to neck until the last moment when KGP got two free shots in the last 10 seconds of the match. The captain committed no mistake in firing them and the second one went in giving KGP a lead of one point. Can you believe that? A team which was being seen as the one participating just for formality and were no believers in them getting into knockout stages was into the finals! In the finals, they screamed, they ran ferociously, they dribbled hard, they threw all they had, they put each iota of energy their muscles could but credit to the opponents, they were simply better that day. As our players admitted, IIT Roorkee deserved the gold medal. Though they lost by 25-44, their entire campaign was studded with brilliant moments – the moments they can take pride on! It was nothing less than a roller coaster ride for them where they defied their own expectations and proved the pundits wrong. All the practice, hard work and perseverance bore sweet fruits.
It wasn’t their victory alone. It was also a big win for their coach Mr Soumen Mondal who played a pivotal role in motivating the team and strategizing for each match. He believed in them and always reminded them of their potential of getting a podium finish. As the players said, “Without his strategies, the victory wasn’t possible.” The never-say-die attitude of the team was all he wanted and girls didn’t disappoint him. The captain Remee marshalled her troop well and her leadership was the key to this entire campaign. A huge shout to these amazing girls!
What lies in the future? Most of the current players are graduating out. The team needs enthusiastic and dedicated junior players to fill the boots. As one of the players admitted, even during the practice sessions, participation from juniors was very less. They had a hard time choosing 9 players for the tournament. Participation from girls was utterly disappointing. And if that’s what will keep on going, we don’t stand a chance in rewriting histories in the upcoming Sports Meets. The current players have appealed to the girls to participate in as large numbers as possible. The sports scenario in KGP among girls isn’t in very good shape right now. We needed inspirations to look up to. Now that we have some of them, why to wait? Hit the ground on the very first day of the next semester!

Day 7 Summary | Inter IIT Sports Meet
As we wrap up all the updates of live action going on field at Inter IIT Sports Meet today, it was a day filled with high emotions running down veins for IIT Kharagpur with 3 final matches taking place today. There is no gainsaying the fact that efforts by our players were superb but better performances by opponent teams halted their dream run and broke their hearts, jeopardising their quest for gold medal.
Men's Football Finals:

Day 6 Summary | Inter IIT Sports Meet
As we wrap up all the updates of live action going on field at Inter IIT Sports Meet today, it was a mixed day for IIT Kharagpur with some brilliant performances that saw them through to the next rounds and some better performances by opponent teams broke their hearts, jeopardising their campaign.
Football Semi-Finals:
IIT Kharagpur beats IIT Madras in the nail-biting Semi-Final by 1-0.
With the help of solitary goal by Abhinav Mishra, Men's Football team outplayed hosts IIT Madras by 1-0 and advanced to the finals that will be played tomorrow.
Men's Squash team soon followed the suit and advanced to the finals by getting past the challenge of IIT Kanpur by 2-1. Its final will be played tomorrow.
How could Men's Badminton team stay behind? They too joined the party, completing a treble of teams qualifying for finals. Bruising aside the string challenge of IIT Delhi by 3-2, they too qualified for the finals to be played tomorrow.
But everything didn't go KGP's way today. Women's Badminton team suffered a heartbreaking loss to IIT Delhi by 2-1 in quarter finals and hence, losing out to get a spot in semi finals, ending their campaign.
Women's Tennis team encountered something similar and we're outplayed by the team that played better today. A 0-2 defeat handed to them by IIT Bombay meant their elegant journey got over which was studded with some sparkling performances in between.
Women's Basketball team certainly raised the bar and got something to cheer about. Whatever may the score line suggests, they didn't leave anything to turn up the game in their favour. With a score of 25-44, they lost out on the gold medal to IIT Roorkee. This silver, for sure, is no less than gold, for them, for us, for all Kgpians.
Men's Volleyball team took on hosts IIT Madras in quarter finals and were straightway put under pressure by the opponents. They did reply back with winning the next game but couldn't hold thereafter, suffering a 1-3 loss and missing a chance to go to semi finals. For most of the games in this tournament, they had their tails up and that something they would be extremely proud of.
Men's Basketball team was up next, taking on heavyweights IIT BHU in quarter finals. The match swinged like anything, but ended up being on our side. KGP sealed it's spot in Semi-Finals by getting past IIT BHU with a score of 57-55.
Men's Tennis team was last in the fray for today, playing the 3rd place decider match with IIT Delhi. They put each ounce of their energy in the court but we got to admit that opponents player better. With a loss by 0-2 to IIT Delhi, IIT KGP got fourth place in Men's Tennis.
Hence, KGP stands with a total of 6 gold medals, 5 silver medals and 7 bronze medals after six days of the ongoing sports meet. We will be witnessing three final matches tomorrow. So, gear up to cheer the teams tomorrow.
Here's the full summary of all the action that unfolded today.

Going beyond its academic and research domains, IIT Kharagpur has announced a unique old age health monitoring service called OASIS (Old Age Support Integrated Services) for the elderly. It is an integrated system for the elderly which provides 360-degree solutions to their health problems through fall sensors, heart rate sensors, infrared sensors, motion sensor, radar sensor and pressure sensor. The system is currently being tested in some old age homes and hospices at Varanasi.

The lead researcher and founder of OASIS, Professor Aurobinda Routray, Department of Electrical Engineering, said that OASIS could act as an information system as well as a health monitoring system for the elderly, which would help in looking after the services as well as the product aspects.

Entrepreneurship Cell

The lifecycle of any start-up can be broadly divided into 3 stages:-
Stage 1: Problem-Solution Fit The objective of this stage is to find a problem worth solving.
Stage 2: Product-Market Fit The objective of this stage is to build something people want and validate your business model.
Stage 3: Scale After Product/Market Fit your objective is to SCALE.
We often see start-ups in the pursuit of Product-Market Fit without actually achieving Problem-Solution Fit. A major chunk of startups do not follow the Lean-startup principle during their growth period.
To solve these, Entrepreneurship Cell, IIT Kharagpur & Zone Start-ups present Lean Start-up Machine Workshop.
Learn the mantras of excelling in each stage with the best possible output for you. Interact, ask and learn!

We are proud to inform that Prof.Bhanu Bhusan Khatua, an Associate Professor at the Materials Science Centre, IIT KGP has gained international attention for his work on "Bio-waste onion skin as an innovative nature-driven piezoelectric material with high energy conversion efficiency" in collaboration with POSTECH, South Korea. Their work has been published in 'Nano Energy journal'.

The crux of this innovation lies in their approach to finding new types of energy harvesting materials, which is one of the fields of research Prof. Khatua pursues. Their discovery of the piezoelectric property of naturally occurring and abundantly available onion peels has pushed us one step closer to realizing the dream of renewable energy. Their work documents the ability of these materials to power up small devices such as calculators, watches and mobile LCD screens by generating the required energy from different pressure pulses ranging from our minute heart beat pulses to high frequency sounds.
The generated power from these devices could also light up 30 simultaneously connected LED's in series with each other, with a maximum capability of powering 73 LED's. They have also explored the mechanisms and working principles of these devices. The experiments were carried out practically by attaching the devices to the human chest, table fans and speakers to measure the output voltage.

The numerous potential applications of these devices from healthcare monitoring to robotics have been highlighted much in the academia and paved the way for critical acclamation.
The Scholars' Avenue congratulates the team on this success and wishes the team much more in the future.

3rd Inter IIT Chess Meet | IIT Kharagpur crowned 'Chess Champions'
With the finish of last and seventh round that saw top two teams on points table i.e., IIT Kharagpur (1) and IIT Roorkee (2) clashing with each other to clinch the coveted gold medal, IIT Kharagpur has become the 'Chess Champion' amongst 16 IITs that participated in the tournament. With IIT Kharagpur needing either a win or just a draw against IIT Roorkee to bag the top spot, our players managed to hold the strong opponent team to a draw and thus, winning the trophy.
While Hemanth (White) won his match, Vivek (Black) and Kaustav (Black) drew their matches. However, Prithwi (White) went down to the strongest player of the tournament. With 1 win, 2 draws and 1 loss, the match was drawn with a score of 2.0-2.0. The draw meant IIT Roorkee settled for the silver medal and hosts IIT Madras got the bronze medal.
Throughout the tournament, IIT Kharagpur had maintained its dominance over opponents. Their journey to the title included wins over IIT BHU (4-0), IIT Kanpur (3.5-0.5), IIT Bombay (2.5-1.5), IIT (ISM) Dhanbad (3.5-0.5), IIT Guwahati (3.0-1.0), draw with IIT Roorkee (2.0-2.0) and a solitary loss to IIT Madras (1.5-2.5).
An impressive record of 5 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss is certainly the fruits of the mental toughness and chess acumen of all the players. But what stands out for KGP in this journey is the outstanding performance of Kaustav Chakraborty, a first-year student, who wasn't only adjudged the second best player of the tournament but also was instrumental in KGP winning the crown with 5 wins and 2 draws in his 7 games. Though he lost to Tamhankar Viraj (IIT Roorkee) by just a mere difference of 0.5 points for the title of 'Best player of the tournament', showcasing such strong chess skills at such a big stage and making opponent players bite the dust effortlessly is no mean feat! And the contingent captain Hemanth Kumar Potluri infused the much-needed confidence into the team and marshalled the troop to the glory. Prithwi, Vivek, Saurabh and Gajendra too got into the act and had fun giving opponent players a taste of their own medicine.
Their individual performances were as follow:
Koustav Chakraborty - 6 points (7 games) - 5 Wins, 2 Draws
Vivek Gupta - 5 points (7 games) - 4W, 2D, 1L
Hemanth Kumar Potluri - 4 points (7 games) - 3W, 2D, 2L
Prithwi Sinha - 2.5 points (4 games) - 2W, 1D, 1L
Saurabh Desai - 2.5 points (3 games) - 2W, 1D

This win marks a milestone as far as Chess Culture at IIT Is concerned. It will go a long way in infusing a new life to the interests of chess enthusiasts and work harder to retain the trophy next year. Not to forget, Chess club, IIT Kharagpur has also been quite active regarding the same and the credit for this thumping win goes to all the stakeholders including players, their mentors, officials etc.

Awaaz, IIT Kharagpur congratulates the entire Chess team for winning the trophy!

3rd Inter IIT Chess Meet, IIT Madras:
IIT Kharagpur bags Gold!
Our team finished at the top of the table with 11 matchpoints at the end of seven intense rounds. Today's Round 7 match between KGP and Roorkee ended in a draw, following which both finished at 11 matchpoints. However, KGP won the Gold on virtue of higher game-points (Tie-Break 3).
Koustav Chakraborty, a first year undergraduate student, performed brilliantly throughout the tournament and was crucial to the team's victory. He finished as the '2nd Best Player of the Meet', very narrowly missing out from the top spot due to today's enforced draw.

IIT KGP Sports heartily congratulates the team of Saurabh Desai, Hemanth Kumar Potluri, Koustav Chakraborty, Prithwi Sinha, Vivek Gupta and Gajendra Kumar on winning the Gold!

Awaaz, IIT Kharagpur had a chance to interact with the CDC chairman Prof. Debasis Deb, the topic of discussion being the ongoing placements. First 6 days of phase 1 of this year's placement saw an astoundingly high number of final year students getting placed. Nevertheless, there are students who could not get any job offer in the initial days and the CDC is apprehensive about the disappointment among such students. Professor Deb said, "There are still a lot of companies lined up in the first phase itself and we shall surely be having a high number of job offers even towards the end of the first phase. So, the students need not lose their spirit and take part in the placement process to show their full potential." When asked about the growing disparity between the number of core sector companies and non-core companies coming for campus placements, he replied, "We tried to call as many core sector companies as possible. But of course, there are several issues, many of them not responding for the first phase of placements. Many more PSUs are lined up after January and the students should not lose hope. Even in the first phase, many core sector companies have come." His message to the students is clear, " Until you come to Nalanda, you can not get the job. So why lose hope? For an instance, 100 students registered for a company, but only 48 turned up in Nalanda for tests (Real Data). We expect more enthusiastic participation since not even half of the placement process is over yet. The companies would be shortlisting more number of students if more people appear for the tests and it increases the probability of more job offers. We are looking after the students with utmost care and hope that they would be giving their best for sure."
Awaaz, IIT Kharagpur wishes the students all the best.

Indian Railways has decided to test the two solutions to address a longstanding problem of sleepy drivers given by IIT Kharagpur's Professor Aurobinda Routray and his team of Electrical Engineering department. The two technologies are named 'Walopi' (Warning Loco Pilot) which is a special software which assesses if a driver is falling asleep and 'Chemvist' (Check My Vigilance State') which is a video game for train drivers to check if they are fit to drive. The main objective is to prevent a driver from being assigned duty if he is likely to become drowsy and to alert the operations system including the control centre if he falls asleep while driving.

Making a robot is the first step towards mimicking God.

The annual Kolkata workshop concluded on November 5th, 2017, with an excellent note and a great zeal and turn-up from students across many engineering colleges. Technology Robotix Society, IIT Kharagpur, in association with Kshitij, IIT Kharagpur conducted a two-hour seminar in Kolkata to acquaint students from different technical institutes within the city with the problem statements and events that are to be held this year at the grandest Techno-management fest this nation witnesses. Kshitij.

The opening note of this seminar was an airy one, with our beloved Albatross hovering in mid-air over the audience, who enjoyed it a lot. Followed the series of bot demonstrations of the Problem statements for this year’s events. Namely: Poles Apart, the manual event, Stax, the autonomous event and Fortress, the Image Processing event.

The objective of this workshop was to pull out to the limelight the fact that making a robot is not as difficult as people think it is. In fact, there are a lot of possible innovations that one can figure out and make the best out of it if given an opportunity like the robotics events at Kshitij. This was well pointed out by making a few classic and simple robots by the members of Technology Robotix Society. Like a gesture control bot, that is literally controlled by your fingertips. A stair-climbing robot demonstrating the importance of a mechanical design in making a useful bot, and finally a fully autonomous robot that can find it’s way out of a corridor using only sonars.

The workshop ended with the official release of the events that are to be held this year at Kshitij, along with the demonstration of a working prototype for each event. This was done to point out the fact that the events that we have set up for everyone to learn and have fun with are not only feasible but can prove to be a step in a direction that might take you to place, you never thought of.

Referring this workshop to a huge success will not be completely right, if not wrong because the real measure of success will be the participation and the enthusiasm which Kshitij will witness this year. Technology Robotics Society wishes that everyone fulfils our purpose of all the hard work that goes into making these events possible, that is, spreading the culture of robotics far and wide so that what we do can make a substantial impact on the society positively.

Hoping for a great participation and enthusiasm, we wish you good luck!

Here's an important notice for all KGPians from the CIC team - "10Gbps internet link is down due to fibre cut, the ISP (Railtel) is working to repair the link. Traffic is now being routed through our 2Gbps backup link and network access is expected to be very slow. Since placement is going on, all users are requested to stop any non-essential internet access until the link is restored to allow placement to go smoothly. We will inform when the link is restored."

Finally, it's day one here signalling the commencement of 15-18 days of this Placement Season. As the Dean (Student Affairs), here's the message of Prof. Somesh Kumar to all the students,
"Dear Students,
You have a lot of expectations from the upcoming placement season starting today. I wish all of you success. However, this placement process is not the end of the world. You may be successful with a high package or low package, or you may not get placed. What is important is to keep trying. This wonderful world has an infinite number of options for life. You have to look for the ones which may be achievable for you. Everyone is not the same and so are the life paths and careers will also not be the same. The important thing is to see what we can do for family, friends, society and the nation. Finally, "Success is not final, failure is not fatal, it is the courage to continue that counts."
Best wishes for happy life to all of you, stay safe, stay healthy, stay happy.

A research by Professor Sajal Dhara, Department of Physics, promises to increase manifold the speed and the storage capacity at which future devices work. His team proved that next-generation devices like quantum computers can be designed even without the use of electrons. The artificially created new particle is lighter than the mass of an electron by 0.0001 times which would provide simple solutions to the most intricate problems. The research has been mentioned in acclaimed science journal 'Nature Physics'.

As Inter IIT Sports Meet 2019 is going to be hosted by IIT Kharagpur, the Institute has allocated an amount of Rs. 10 crores for upgrading and renovating sports activities to host the same. This is in addition to the annual sports budget of Rs 1.5 crore. Two synthetic courts each for tennis, basketball and volleyball, one synthetic athletics track and an indoor stadium with a food court have been proposed to be built for the same cause which in the long run, would strengthen the sports culture in KGP.
Tennis has also received a major boost with one of our alumni Mr. Vinod Gupta facilitating training program and sports kit upgradation.

With our exams just around the corner, it is difficult to ignore the host of stress and anxiety related problems they bring with them. The recent state of affairs in our campus have been very unfortunate, hugely detrimental and in contradiction to an institute with a hallowed reputation. The root of most of the problems though can be traced back to skewed and misaligned perceptions of mental health, followed by some glaring inefficiencies in the systems put in place to keep a check on the same. Our institute's latest partnership with the anonymous online counselling forum, YourDOST, is an effort directed to remove the veil on the former.
In this light, The Scholars' Avenue had a chance to interview one of the co-founders of this organisation - Ms.Richa Singh, also alumni of IIT Guwahati, one of our sister institutes. YourDOST is offering its services to the students of IIT Kharagpur with the institute bearing all the costs. The only requirement from our side is that we sign up with them through our proxy server.

Read on to find out more about the organisation and its journey. Don't miss this chance to check up on your mental health and all the best for the upcoming exams.
