Result – among the top 5 but not among the top two! In short, we lost!
We cleared the first part (poster presentation) of final round and were amongst the TOP 5 from the whole state. The second (& last) part was power point presentation for 100 marks. It was split into 4 sections each of 25 marks – depth of knowledge, applicability of project, question & answers, presentation.
So we got shortlisted at university level.
The final round is happening today, like right now. The competition will run for two days – 7 & 8 Jan.
Place – Krishi Vidyapeeth, Dapoli, Ratnagiri.
Today we have to present our posters, the shortlisted candidates will present oral presentation on 8th. About 500 teams from all the regions of Maharashtra are selected for this final round.
I have a firm belief that our project – Mathematics Android Apps – will win in this competition. If in case we do not win, there could be only one justification for that – that the judges could not perceive the true potential of our project!
I was in Pune yesterday. Occasion was State Level Project Competition – Avishkar.
Our project - Solve Complex Maths Problems Using Our Android Apps – was selected from Zonal lever (Nashik Zone).
The second round – University Zone (Pune) – was held yesterday i.e. 26 Dec 2012. Result is yet to be declared.
We have developed android apps for maths students & teachers. With these apps users can solve derivative, integration, linear & non-linear equations, interpolation, matrix calculations etc.
They can be used to verify the answers. Unique thing about our apps is you can get step by step solutions as well. User interface is just perfect.
I know the blog has been inactive since long.
I intend to write more frequently from now onwards and wish to make it active blog.
I was wondering what exactly I should write about. This is what I came up with.
1. I read books frequently. I can write about them.
2. About my life experiences.
3. Social issues. (India/World affairs).
6. Interesting / Innovative thoughts.
If you can suggest any topics, please do.
My dad told me two cases that happened in Nashik just a few days back. Not big ones, but so common that no one would even notice it.
Case 1 – A poor adivasi lady from some village was selling some tiny birds on the road for her bread and butter for the day. A police came, took her to the court, made her pay Rs. 200 fine.
Case 2 – Another villager was sitting in some government office, smoking bidi. It’s not allowed. He was taken to the court and made to pay fine!
The other day I was reading about Savarkar.
When Savarkar wrote ‘Indian war of independence 1857′, he emphasized on Hindu-Muslim unity. He consciously accepted it, promoted it. He was 25 then. Later on when he was in Andaman, he studied Koran and found out fallacy about that thought (as per his thoughts. I’m not implying anything here).
One of the reasons is -
Islam does not allow its followers to accept the boundaries of Nation. It transcends beyond that. Their first and foremost faith lies towards their religion according to Koran. So true believers in Islam religion, naturally they put Islam before Nation. (Here Nation implies the Idea of Nation and not the actual Nation as such)
