  󰀱 AARW NEWSLETTER  A quarterly publication of Anjamma Agi Reddy Engineering College for Women, Hyderabad     Issue No.2, April 2011 From the Principal’s Desk To do well in the examinations, you must make use of every minute for preparation. This was  brought out convincingly by our students in the seminar of 31.1.2011. You must also maintain good health, since you cannot read if you are suffering from a head ache. The viruses and  bacteria are always around and they are eager to attack a weak person. It is for you to be strong and immune to microbes and allergens. The key to good health is correct diet  , sufficient exercise  and a positive attitude . Increase the leaf   and  fruit   content of your food and reduce the oil, fat   and  sugar   content. Prefer hand pounded rice over polished rice. Increase whole grain content in place of ground floor. Carrots , tomatoes  and milk   are any day better than  potatoes , chat   and Coca Cola . Use a mixture of oils for cooking, minimizing the quantity. Do not fast on a working day, so that you do not collapse in the lab, needing infusion of saline for revival. Exercise or walk for at least 45 minutes every day. Cooking, washing, gardening and cleaning all contribute to exercise. Once your health improves, you feel liberated and exhilerated. Then you will pursue study with focus, vigour and joy. The summer has set in. You must take all precautions against the hot sun. Wear loose and airy clothes. Avoid dark clothing as it absorbs and retains Sun's heat efficiently. Avoid going out  between 12 noon and 4 pm. Carry an umbrella or at least wear a cap if you have to go out in the sun. White cloth umbrella reflects away the rays and keeps you cool. Wet your hair or cover with a wet hand kerchief or scarf to protect against heat. Prevention is better than cure, any day. Drink a lot of water. Avoid taking roadside juices and food. The ice being used in cold drinks such as  ganne ka ras  is that which has been made for preserving food and goods meant for export. It is not made from drinking water and hence unfit for human consumption. Food becomes stale quickly in summer and causes illness. In this issue, we have  Inspiring Words from a Distinguished Visitor  . Hashmat Sultana poses the question What is behind success  and then answers it convincingly. Then we have points from AARW student seminars on Time Management   and ways to  Reuse, Reduce and Recycle.  How a student should be treated by a teacher is spelt out by Srilakshmi in  If a student..,  followed  by two poems by Jyothsna and science, technology and environment news From far and near  . Finally, on the occasion of March 8 being Women’s Day, we have a wonderful collection of slides by Swetha, capturing women in multiple roles. -   Dr. Palanki Balakrishna  󰀲 Inspiring words from a distinguished visitor Swami Bodhanandamaya, Director, Vivekananda Institute of Human Excellence addressed our students. Here are some of the points he made: ã   I can, you can, and we all can make India dynamic and powerful. For this, we all have to shift our attention from materialism  to  spiritualism .  Matter   is not important, mind   is important. The capacity of the human brain is unlimited. All of you have an immense capacity to do several things. But what you choose to do has a tremendous effect on you, on the country, on the society and on the world. Install the right and your srcinal     software  in your mind, so that it makes you to do the right things. Learn to discriminate  between right and wrong, good and bad, ethical and unethical. It is not enough if you have a head   to think. You must also have a heart   to feel and a hand   to help. ã   To be a good engineer, you need to have five characteristics: Will power, srcinality,  positive attitude, concentration and discretion. 5 Es of an engineer are: Enthusiasm, Experiment, Experience, Expertise, and Excellence. ã   Acquire knowledge from various sources, but do not imitate someone blindly. ã   Always think positive. With a positive outlook, you can change any situation for the  better. Start your day with confidence, smile, optimism and a winning attitude. Avoid complaining, criticizing, comparing, competing   and copying  . ã   Focus on your task. For example, do not listen to music or watch TV while solving a mathematical problem. Work continuously and intensely on the problem on hand. Do not rest until the job on hand is completed. Keep away all distractions. ã   Do not compare yourself with others. Compare your  performance  with your own  potential  . Keep questioning yourself whether you have done your best in your day’s work. (compiled by L Sharada, P Pratyusha, Rintu Joseph, B Jyothsna, Ch. Mounika, P. Mounika, G I Shailaja, Ch. Jhansi, P Srilatha, Firdouse Unnisa Begum, Farriya Naaz, Shaheena Tanweer, B Mahalakshmi, G Jyothi, E Kavya, B Sowjanya, O Swetha, T Sanjana, Nahid Sadia, G Pushpa Latha, Ch. Arsi, Ankita Arora, B Srilakshmi) What is behind success? Every individual has the capability to succeed in life with proper utilization of resources  provided. One should not entirely depend on God or spiritual beliefs thinking that may help one on the way to success. Success will not come to those people who had great luck. There is only one way for success. That is having confidence in oneself supplemented by hard work.  No one should feel that he is very small in front of others and that his ability is less than that of the others. One should always remember that a single point can stop the entire sentence. Except full-stop, nothing can stop a sentence, however long and complex it may be. Do not treat  󰀳 yourself as very small, because many big structured things do not have the ability to perform important functions that nano-particles can do. Nano-particles have spread all over science and technology and they are known not for their size, but for their character and characteristics. If you fail in doing some thing, do not give up or do not keep a feeling that you can not do it. If Thomas Alva Edison had thought like that, the world would have remained in darkness. After fusing 1000 bulbs, he did not give up his efforts. He did not lose confidence in his experimental capability. He was a positive thinker. He felt that the incandescent bulb would finally be a reality, it was just that he might have made a mistake somewhere. A person with opposite negative thinking would have concluded that the idea was not practicable and stopped further work. To be successful in life is not an easy task. But if you have a strong desire for it, it is not very tough. Helen Keller was deaf, dumb and blind. She could not express her feelings, she could not hear others and her whole life was dark. In spite of her disabilities, with a strong desire, with sheer will power and self confidence, she obtained a degree and showed the way for several  persons with disabilities. She became a role model, not only for the blind, but also to those who can see.  Nature is a good teacher. If we observe nature closely, we can learn several things. ã   If you cut the branches of a tree, the tree does not stop growing. More and more new  branches grow from the tree. ã   Have you realized that the diamond that sparkles lived in the midst of coal? ã   Birds construct nests with tiny materials. The nest collapses several times, but the bird does not give up until it succeeds. ã   Do not think that a drop is not important, because small drops make up a mighty ocean. ã   Have you observed an eagle? If it wants to fly high, first it will come down to land and then it will take a high flight. When you fail to do some thing, you must view it as a stepping stone to success. ã   Do not think that your fortune lies in the lines of your hand. Even people without hands have made a fortune. ã   Success is like a star, apparently unreachable. Even if you can not reach the fruit high up in the tree, it may fall into your hands. To conclude, if you have the desire and the will, you can overcome all types of difficulties in the course of life. The only way leading to success is HARD WORK, SELF CONFIDENCE and POSITIVE THINKING. - Hashmath Sultana, I B.Tech ECE Pride of AARW Hashmath Sultana, author of What is behind success  topped I B.Tech ECE in the Mid Examinations. She also has the distinction of 100% attendance as on date.  󰀴 Student seminar of 31.01.2010 on “How to manage time effectively” Participants: I B.Tech CSE -Pratyusha, Rintu Joseph, Ankita Arora, Shaheena Tanweer, Firdous Unnisa Begum, B Srilakshmi, Fariya Naaz. I B.Tech ECE: N Priyanka, Hashmath Sultana, Shaik Neeha Tarunnam, Fehmida Bano, N Divya Sri, M Jyothi, Rahat Durakshan Siddiqui 1.   Time is the only resource that can not be recovered. Time moves in one direction only and we can never retrace the past. Hence manage time most efficiently and effectively. 2.   There is a saying that one started digging a well the moment he felt thirsty. Instead, anticipate requirements and take advance action. 3.   Prioritise jobs as (a) most important, (b) less important and (c) least important  . Every day, focus on the most important jobs first. Allocate the time at your disposal  proportionate to the importance of the job. 4.   Prepare a time table. List the jobs and assign expected dates of completion and stick to the time table. 5.   Increase the time at your disposal by getting up earlier in the morning and going to sleep later in the night. But do not do ‘night outs’. Sleeping is essential for good performance. 6.   Give utmost importance to punctuality, whether it is reaching the college or attending a seminar. 7.   There is a saying,  It is the thought of work and not the work itself that troubles the lazy mind  . There is another saying,  A journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step . So it is essential to discipline oneself to get started on the job without an incubation period. 8.    Never postpone a job (avoid procrastination), whether it is a home assignment or submitting scholarship application on-line or reading (from the text book) topics covered in the class room during the day. Do not wait for the last day. There is a saying, unless  you get into the water, you will not know its depth . Hence begin the work early so that you will know all the implications and complexities. Take up the task and complete it well before deadline, whether it is submitting scholarship application on line or payment of fees. For example, in scholarship application, several students will be trying to submit online application on the last day and the server will become inefficient, so that the site will not open easily. Those who act early will have the benefit of quick site opening and lodging of application. Early applications will receive early attention of the Social Welfare Department, whereas late applications being too numerous will pile up and remain. Kabir Das said, “What you would do tomorrow, do today” . By doing in advance, you will not suffer from eventualities like the internet being down or power failure or  bandh being declared on the last day. Some jobs require much more time than you expect and early beginning will help a lot. 9.   Provide a cushion period in your time table. If there are 15 days available and six subjects to be studied, allot two days per subject and keep 3 days as cushion. 10.   Select only good text books which are made as per syllabus and without extra matter. If you spend too much time on just one topic, you will not have time to read other topics.
