    historic speech

    In his historic speech in the World’s Parliament of Religions in 1893, Swami Vivekananda started with these epic words “Sisters and brothers of America”. The thunderous applause lasted more than the two minutes originally allocated for the speech. Swamiji visited Chicago after he had gone on a nationwide tour of India in which he witnessed an impoverished and ravaged country, hit by a series of famines during the colonial rule. Swamiji’s positioning of India as a significant global power reflected his visionary and spiritual leadership. He was able to articulate India as a source of strength, especially at a time when the West was hoping that India, as a victim of circumstances, would be seeking global aid and benevolence. The assertion changed the geo-political outlook towards India as a nation with the propensity and potency for global supremacy. India as a global solution provider is an idea that germinated long ago and needs to be nurtured.

    In response to a failing Anglo-Saxon economic recovery and the fragile framework of BRICS and the emerging economies, Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘Make in India’ vision cuts across a spectrum of development clusters. The September 2014-response is a confidence-building measure to catapult the nation through a vibrant economic path of recovery, and education is a common thread that sews all the ‘Make in India’ clusters together. The role of educational institutions in harnessing the intrinsic power of our nation needs no extra emphasis and there is a need to build confidence in various sections of our education value chain—school education, teacher education, higher education, research, public policy, students etc. There is no doubt that many of the statutory and regulatory bodies that govern various streams of education need an overhaul, and steps in this direction have been initiated. With the new National Educational Policy to be announced soon, there is hope that education becomes a game changing tool for the ‘Make in India’ movement.

    Here are the steps to solve the above problem:

    Your job is: open a new workbook and input the above values one by one into the worksheet [start from cell A2].

    If you’re done, just select the whole range [from cell A2: A31].

    Click on the Conditional Formatting drop down in the Home ribbon, select New Rule from the drop-down, New Formatting Rule dialog box appears.

    In the Select a Rule Type window, select Use a formula to determine which cells to format option.

    In the Format values where this formula is true field, type this formula: =OR(OFFSET(A2,MAX(ROW(A$2)-ROW(A2)+3,0),0,MIN(ROW(A2)-ROW(A$2)+1,4),1)-OFFSET(A2,MAX(ROW($A$2)-ROW(A2),-3),0,MIN(ROW(A2)-ROW(A$2)+1,4),1)=3)

    Now select the appropriate format type clicking on the Format… button in the dialog box [I selected Sky Blue background].

    Now click OK for two times, you’re done! You get the cells conditionally formatted like the following image.

    Irreversible process

    An Irreversible process is one in which heat is transferred through a finite temperature. Irreversible process is also known as spontaneous process because these processes take place at very fast rate.

    scholarship & education

    Examples of irreversible processes are as follows:
    1) Relative motion with friction
    2) Falling of the water from the hill
    3) Electricity flow through a resistance.
    4) Throttling process
    5) Plastic deformation

    Irreversible processes are of two types:
    1) External irreversibility:
    These are associated with dissipating effects outside the working fluid.
    For example: mechanical friction occurring during the process due to some external source.

    2. Internal irreversibility:
    These are associated with dissipating effects within the working fluid.
    For example: Unrestricted expansion of the gas, viscosity and inertia of the gas.

    The video you posted is a compilation from the High Definition Earth Viewing (HDEV) experiment aboard the ISS.

    Four commercial-off-the-shelf high definition video cameras are mounted outside the Columbus. Module enclosed in a pressurized and temperature controlled housing. The four cameras are oriented in different directions. (1 looking forward, 1 looking nearly straight down, and 2 looking back). They change from one camera to the next in a repeating cycle.

    As C Stuart Hardwick notes the HD cameras provide much better images than the original standard definition remote controlled cameras still in use outside the ISS.

    A live video stream from HDEV with a map showing the ISS location is available…

    નાણાંકીય વર્ષ ૨૦૧૬-૧૭ નાં રાષ્ટ્રીય આવકનાં બીજા અગ્રિમ અનુસાર, નાણાંકીય વર્ષ ૨૦૧૬-૧૭ દરમિયાન પ્રતિ વ્યક્તિની નેટ રાષ્ટ્રીય આવક વધીને ૧,૦૩,૮૧૮ થઇ જવાનું અનુમાન છે. જે નાણાંકીય વર્ષ ૨૦૧૫-૧૬ માં ૯૪,૧૭૮ રૂપિયાની તુલનામાં ૧૦.૨ ટકા વધારે છે.

    આંકડાકીય અને કાર્યક્રમ અમલ મંત્રાલય (CSO) એ આ આંકડા રજૂ કર્યા છે. વાસ્તવિક આધાર પર પ્રતિ વ્યક્તિની આવક (૨૦૧૧-૧૨ ની કિંમતો પર) ચાલુ નાણાંકીય વર્ષમાં ૮૨,૧૧૨ રૂપિયા રહેવાનું અનુમાન છે, જે વર્ષ ૨૦૧૫-૧૬ માં ૭૭,૫૨૪ રૂપિયા રહી છે.

     મંત્રાલય મુજબ પ્રતિ વ્યક્તિનો આવક વ્રૂદ્ધિ દર ૨૦૧૬-૧૭ માં ૫.૯ ટકા રહેવાનું અનુમાન છે, જે ગયા વર્ષે ૬.૬ ટકા હતો. સકળ રાષ્ટ્રીય આવક (GNI) ૨૦૧૧-૧૨ કિંમતો પર ૧,૨૦,૨૮૦ અબજ રૂપિયા રહેવાનું અનુમાન છે જે ૨૦૧૫-૧૬ માં ૧,૧૨,૨૨૦ રૂપિયા અનુમાનિત છે.

    ઉલ્લેખનીય છે કે, સરકારે ૮ નવેમ્બરે ૫૦૦ અને ૧,૦૦૦ રૂપિયાની નોટ અચાનક જ ચલણમાંથી બહાર કરી દીધી હતી. નોટબંધીનાં કારણે અર્થવ્યવસ્થા પર પડતા પ્રભાવને ધ્યાનમાં રાખીને કેટલીક સંશોધન સંસ્થાઓ અને આંતરરાષ્ટ્રીય એજન્સીઓને ચાલુ નાણાંકીય વર્ષ દરમિયાન ભારતનો આર્થિક વૃદ્ધિ દર ૭.૧ ટકાથી ઓછો રહેવાનું અનુમાન વ્યક્ત કર્યું છે. જોકે, CSO એ ૬ જાન્યુઆરીએ રજૂ કરવામાં આવેલ GDP વૃદ્ધિનાં અગ્રિમ આંકડાઓમાં વર્ષ દરમિયાન ૭.૧ ટકા વૃદ્ધિ રહેવાનું અનુમાન લગાવવામાં આવ્યું છે.

  • Important facts

    • The National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI), Mastercard, and Visa has developed it
    • BharatQR code would require merchants to only display one QR code instead of multiple ones
    • It will ensure that people do not suffer from card loss or card expiry problem
    • It was devised after the Reserve Bank of India’s (RBI) direction in September last year, in order to make payments seamless for buyers as they just have to “scan to pay” for transactions instead of swiping their credit/debit cards

    What is QR code?

    The QR code or Quick Response code is a two-dimensional machine-readable code, which is made up of black and white squares and is used for storing URLs or other information. These can easily be read by the camera of a smartphone.

    How to use the Bharat QR code:

    A consumer will simply have to open his/her banking app or BHIM app in their phones.

    Then, they need to scan the merchant’s QR code and enter the amount that they have to pay the vendor.

    Lastly, they will have to enter the four-digit code to authenticate the transaction.

    Once the transaction is complete the said amount will directly be credited into  the merchant’s account.

    Both the merchant as well as the customers will receive instant notification regarding the same.

    This method would eliminate the need of PoS machines on a merchant outlet.

    Technical education in India contributes a major share to the overall education system and plays a vital role in the social and economic development of our nation. In India, technical education is imparted at various levels such as: craftsmanship, diploma, degree, post-graduate and research in specialized fields, catering to various aspects of technological development and economic progress.

    The beginning of formal Technical Education in India can be dated back to the mid 19th Century. The major policy initiatives in the pre-independence period included appointment of the Indian Universities Commission in 1902, issue of the Indian Education policy resolution in 1904 and the Governor General’s policy statement of 1913 stressing the importance of Technical Education, the establishment of IISc in Bangalore, Institute for Sugar, Textile and Leather Technology in Kanpur, N.C.E. in Bengal in 1905 and Industrial schools in several provinces.
