The great aim of education is not knowledge but action. – Herbert Spencer
Indeed, the statement is true. It is to bring a change that people are educated and as educated people it is our duty to educate others. But, educating them alone cannot bring about the required change in the society. If a nation has to progress, then all the citizens of the nation should walk in the path of progress. We as students can help the society by creating this path of progress. Center for Social Action(CSA) is one such forum where we not only hear to the pains of people but also help them to progress and live a life like ours. The knowledge of Computer is very essential in today’s world. Knowing how to operate a computer is not a luxury anymore but it is a need. There are many people even today who have not even seen a computer. Computers are also used in many educational applications and are used in automation by which we can help these people lead a better life.
Paul Sebastian(5BTCS) and I, Arjun Kashyap(3BTCS) accompanied by our in-charge faculty Mr. Pradeep Kumar, visited two villages in the Kolar district to survey them and come to a conclusion on making these villages Smart. A Smart Village is the one which is self-sufficient having people who are conscious about their environment. During our visit we came across the various difficulties faced by these people and were also amused by the zeal and the wit of these people. One common observation we made was that all of them wanted to learn.
We started at 6:30 a.m in the morning of 23rd July, 2016 to visit these villages and survey them. The journey was fun and interesting as we discussed about various ideas on making the villages smart, it was not until we visited them that we got to know the requirements of the villages. At around 10:40 a.m we reached our base camp situated at Yeldur(Hobli)Kolar District, we didn’t waste any time as we were very excited to know about these villages. Accompanied by Mr. Shiva Kumar, the assistant project officer of CFCD, CSA, we visited our first village. Kannampalli was the first village that we visited, where we met Mr. Manjunath who was the facilitator. He explained to us about the various difficulties present in the village. We also started our survey on the educational background, internet facilities and other technical aspects of the village. The village has 45 families in total. We were very much touched by the hospitality of the villagers and it was an amazing experience to meet such wonderful people.
At around 1:30 p.m we returned to the base camp after finishing the survey of Kannampalli. We had our lunch at the base camp and started our journey towards the second village. The second village that we visited was Beraganahalli of SrinivaspuraTaluk, this village had better facilities compared to the previous one. This village has 150 families. The village has two animators :Muniratnamma and Renuka, who explained to us various difficulties faced by the villagers, the educational qualification of people in the village. We started off our survey by checking the satellite dish connections and the internet connection available in the village. We were amazed to hear that two house in the village also had internet connections.
At around 5:00 p.m we finished our survey of the two villages and returned back to Bangalore. Although we wanted to spend another day with the wonderful people of the villages, we had our schedules preplanned due to which we had to return. We also did make many plans to make the villages smart and discussed about the feasibility of the plans.

The visit to TCS started at 7:30am from our campus. After travelling for around 2 hours or so we reached the TCS campus at Whitefield. We were welcomed with tea and snacks. After having a good mid morning snack we moved into the Auditorium for the event. The event for the day was mainly of 2 sessions.
The first session started off by a welcome address by Ms. Anjana, Regional Head- Talent Acquisition. She gave us a brief on all the events conducted by TCS which is open to students and gives students the opportunity to showcase their talents and skills. The various events are EngiNX, CodeVita etc.
After that we were addressed by Mr.TamalDatta the winner of EngiNX 2013. He won it 3 yersbak and was offered the job which he took up after his graduation. He shared his experience on how the transition from college to corporate world feels and also how TCS make Work Fun by having various activities like Quiz etc.,
We were after that just briefed on the EngiNX event and how they came down from 40000 contestants to 5 top teams.
After this session in the auditorium we went on to see the model of the top-5 teams. Each of the team demonstrated and explained their models. We were asked to understand and vote for the best model after a look at all the 5.
The 5 models were
IoTfied homes: - “IoTfied homes” is a building management system purposefully for residential sector. It focuses on two component of Smart grid that is demand response and Home area network, it does so by acting as a retrofit to the currently employed switches and energy meters. It also provide user an application interface that enables automatic/semi-automatic DR, optimized air conditioning and a comprehensive control over all the electrical appliances.
Cognitive Healthcare Network: Making available healthcare resources to the people has become inefficient, resource exhausting and hectic especially because of low level automation in the field of healthcare network or less available Healthcare Personnel (HCP). So to make the process of prevention and remedies a bit more methodical, they are implementing methods to automate the existing medical facilities. Further the vast medical data that is recorded is used to foretell the disease trend and predict diseases by feeding the data to the machine learning algorithms.
Smart Water Management System: Thirst is the cry of today's world. "Water water everywhere, but not a drop to drink....". Efficient usage is the need of the hour. From Kerala, GECians, the students of Government Engineering College Thrissur, presented the key to tackle this problem. And it is, the Smart Water Management System. Most cities in India are water stressed, with no city having a reliable and adequate supply of safe potable water. Their innovative Smart Water Management System (SMWS), makes use of the latest Internet-of-Things technology as well as big data and predictive analysis to automatically and efficiently manage the demand and supply of water in cities, where municipal water supply is the primary source of water for millions. Using historic data of water usage patterns and predictive analysis, their system can also alert users about their water usage, recommend modifications and notify them about possible water shortages and maintenance. It also helps to automatically generate bills and detect possible leaks.
Smart Driving System: The system helps the driver to have a safe ride, it identifies the road humps and potholes on the road in the drive way and alters the driver about it, by which the driver can take necessary action so as to minimize the damage to the car and Himself/Herself.
Gathering Head Count in an Emergency: - system that enables us to count the number of people in a building or premises and allows to locate their position in case of an emergency. They used BLE beacons to provide safe exit paths and other emergency details to the user through mobile phones. The system also sends alert messages to fire force, ambulance, police and the management. Television broadcast to warn the audience about the situation is also provided. A health device given to patients helps to monitor their health status throughout their presence in the premises. Their system can be implemented in malls, stadiums, apartments and many more.
After we saw all the projects we were asked to vote for the project we liked the most. After the voting we headed for lunch which was arranged for us. After the sumptuous lunch we went back to the auditorium for the last session and the Grand Finale where we were addressed by a few of the top executives from TCS.
The day ended with the distribution of the prizes to the winners. After the whole ceremony was over we again were served a high tea after we left campus.

On 28th July, 2016, Thursday, the 3BTCS C students along with the faculty left the Kengeri campus by bus at 11:30 am. It reached ISAC campus on Old Airport Road at around 1:30 pm. After finishing reception formalities, everyone was given a pass and entered the ISAC exhibition hall. Mr. Srinivas of ISAC received us and guided us through the exhibition. Initially, there were different models of the rockets. Older rockets were displayed along with the modern PSLV and GSLV.
• Students were introduced to different types of rockets & satellites developed till now at ISRO and their purpose by Mr. H.L.Srinivasa. Then we were informed about different centres of ISRO all over India & their purpose.
• Mr. Srinivas explained the various features of the rockets. Next, there were the models of satellites including the oldest Apple satellites and the later satellites with solar panels, solar sail and minor rockets present on the satellites for adjusting their positions in space. The reason for gold color coating on the satellites for handling extremes of temperature was explained. Two types of satellites were described: Indian Remote Sensing Satellites and Communication Satellites. Remote sensing satellites are useful in activities like fishing (identifying places in the sea where fish can be found) and warnings about cyclones. During cyclone Hudhud, damage to human life was made minimal due to warnings.
• Then, we were shown the different electronic components used in satellites. The components need to be very sturdy. Currently, they are therefore imported and very expensive. The use of aluminium honey comb material for body parts was demonstrated. These parts are light and yet very strong.
• Next, we witnessed a “clean room” where satellite is assembled. A satellite in space faces extremes of temperature such as -120 degrees to +120 degrees Celsius. We were taken to a room where there is a chamber for testing this. The chamber gets liquid nitrogen for testing against low temperature and similarly testing hot temperature. Only after thorough testing, satellite is taken by road to the launching pad at Sriharikota.
• There was a video session which presented ISAC activities. Mr. Srinivas took up answering many questions from students regarding ISRO, ISRO activities and space mission related topics. He explained the various job requirements at ISAC and the minimum marks criteria for selection. He also mentioned about the ISAC campus which students can join after 12 th standard.
• Regarding research, he mentioned that ISRO and Nuclear Energy come directly under PMO. They do not undertake research partnerships with universities/colleges. However, they are willing to help and encourage universities to build their own satellites which ISRO can launch. The cost of a launch may be about Rupees 4 to 5 crores.
• After returning the passes, we boarded the bus at 4:00 pm. The bus reached Kengeri campus at around 5:30 pm. No photographs were taken as photography was strictly not allowed at ISAC.
