Is Blockchain the new buzzword of the future?

  Is Blockchain the new buzzword of the future? Blockchain is a system of recording information to make it challenging to modify, change or hack the system. Blockchain, a digital ledger, transactions are duplicated and distributed across the entire network of computers on the blockchain.  Each block of the chain contains many transactions.  A record of that transaction is added to every participant's ledger whenever a new transaction occurs on the blockchain.  Blockchain technology is a distributed ledger technology (DLT) in which transactions are recorded with an immutable cryptographic signature called a hash. Though this technology came into existence with bitcoin, blockchain has a far-reaching potential outside today's cryptocurrency. Besides cryptocurrency, blockchain provides various applications in financial services, supply chains, and the public sector. Some of the applications are given here. 1.

Future of Electric Vehicles in India: Scopes and Challenges

Future of Electric Vehicles in India: Scopes and Challenges 18 years ago, when I visited the Taj Mahal, Agra, I travelled in battery-operated vehicle shunting between the vehicle parking and Taj Mahal.  The authorities made these arrangements to avoid pollution due to emissions from automobiles in and around the Taj Mahal. Long back, I saw battery-operated buses plying inside the IIT Madras campus. But the numbers were limited during those times, most of them funded by the government.  Awareness of battery-operated vehicles has picked up the pace for the past five to six years in India. A lot of Indian automakers are involved in developing EVs suitable for our local conditions. New start-ups are coming up into this segment from manufacturing vehicles, charging technologies, motors and control technologies for electric mobility. In this blog, I write about the future of electric vehicles in India. Also, write about the opportunities and challenges. OPPORTUNITIES The automobile world is

How Do You Understand the Term Trending in Social Media?

After so many buildups in social media and TV discussions for years, I really wanted to know what is trending? Trending means any topic currently popular or widely discussed online, especially on social media websites. You can also add 'at particular' location to the above sentence. Location can be a village, town, city, state, country or even the entire world. For example, suppose a topic is discussed more on social media in a town at a particular time. The discussion is trending there. It applies to city, state, country or world. Usual trending topics are about politics, social issues of a particular location, movie release, actor birthdays, gossips etc. Trending depends on the number of people or message over time and location. So it has to be a short burst over a shorter duration, not consistently built over months or years. A word or phrase preceded by a hash sign (#), used on social media websites to identify digital content on a specific topic. So hashtag may play a role

How we Approached In-plant Training for Our Students

Our engineering college is situated in a rural area. Most of the students are from in and around our college. As part of the industrial exposure, we invite industry people to interact with students and arrange industrial visits regularly. Some students get opportunities for in-plant training. There were very few industries in our area, giving chances to only a small number of students. It was very challenging for students to get industrial exposure. Some students found it challenging to spend for travel and stay. But their interest to go for industry training was enormous. A few years back, we found an alternative solution to in-plant training for our students, which worked well. We collected the list of famous civil engineers, electrical consultants and engineers, authorised dealers of car and bike service, big businesses in and around our area. We decided to send our students to them for industry training during weekends and vacations. Through this, mechanical engineering students ca

How A Small Initiative Improved the Confidence of Students from Rural Areas

In the university where I worked, every subject would have a seminar component for 15 marks. Students have to talk on a specific topic at least once per subject. This initiative was taken to train students from rural areas not to face difficulties when they go for jobs. But it did not happen as planned. Some faculty members found it difficult to complete it on time and requested the management to remove it from the assessment. Absenteeism, unwillingness to take seminar were the main reasons cited by the faculties. During that time, I handled a subject called Renewable Energy for Electrical Engineering Students. I elaborately talked to the students about the purpose of conducting and the importance of the seminar. Also, I asked the students about their difficulties in doing. The majority of students told the following Stage fear Classmates might tease Teacher might ask questions Less confident to talk in English  But, All the students accepted the importance of the seminar, and they wer

How important is health insurance for a middle-class family

I am not from any insurance company and not here to campaign for anybody. Wish to share the importance of it among all, mainly for the middle-class family.  Think about what will happen during an emergency medical situation for your family member if you're not financially strong to meet your medical needs. Either you will spend from your savings, or you need to borrow it. Otherwise, you need to choose a substandard hospital. I have seen the struggles of my friends and colleagues so many times. Suppose you have a health insurance policy for your family. In that case, you can choose the best hospital for treatment during emergencies. Even though you have enough savings, it is wise to spend a small amount on health insurance premium rather than paying huge hospital bills.  I interacted with some of my colleagues and friends about health insurance.  In this blog, I listed some general misconceptions of people, and I wish to clarify them from my understanding of health policies.   Peopl
