Mindkraft 2018 Annual National Level Techno-Management Fiesta by Karunya Institute of Technology and Sciences

Mindkraft-2018, the annual National Level Techno-Management Fiesta, organized by Karunya Institute of Technology and Sciences was inaugurated on March 15th  by Chief guest, Prof. P.B Sunil Kumar, Director of IIT Palakkad.

The Chief Guest Prof. P.B Sunil Kumar advised the budding engineers of Karunya to stay connected, to have an open mind and to be sensitive to the issues plaguing the society.  These issues are the ones that will serve as problem statements for research and innovation.  Every invention and discovery has resulted because of the inquisitiveness of mankind to understand the universe around him.  Stephen Hawking said, “Intelligence is the ability to adapt to change”.  It is necessary that students strive to inculcate adaptability in them.   He also encouraged the students to be concerned not only about their own kith and kin but also to be thoughtful about the society at large.  He insisted that students should exhibit total dedication in everything they do.  He emphasized on the fact that more than earning a degree, the outcome of the knowledge gained is important.

The session was presided over by Dr. P. Mannar Jawahar, Vice Chancellor. Dr.Ridling Margaret Waller, Pro Vice Chancellor delivered the welcome address.  The  Mindkraft souvenir was released by the Chief guest during the inaugural ceremony.

The event would continue for the next 2 days and would showcase inspiring and creative ideas brought out by students of engineering, arts and sciences. This year Mindkraft has received registrations of about 1000 students from 75 institutions from Tamilnadu and neighbouring states.

The 11th magnificent rendition of Mindkraft features more than 55 technical events, 26 workshops with active industrial collaborations, and an interactive technical talk with experts from various walks of life.  The lighting and decorations have kindled the curiosity of students throughout the event, while the food stalls and games have been a constant source of food and entertainment.  The drone racing competition attracted the students very much.

The first day of Mindkraft has ended on a positive, enriching and productive note, while a plethora of nerve wrecking and nail biting events are still lined up in the upcoming days.

Students and Institutions could still utilize this opportunity and experience the technical extravaganza.
Mr. Kunwer Sachdev Exlaining About IOT Technology In Su Kam Power Solutions To Ambassador Of Bolivia H. E. Mr. Sergio Dario Arispe Barrientos

Bolivia Ambassador H. E. Mr. Sergio Dario Arispe Barrientos lauds superior technologies of Su-Kam

Bolivia’s Ambassador to India H. E. Mr. Sergio Dario Arispe Barrientos visited the headquarters of Su-Kam and lauded the state –of- the- art technology offered by Su-Kam. The visit was a part of his plan to explore Indian companies that have potential to manufacture lithium-ion batteries and thus augment trade relations with India.

Bolivia ambassador Mr. Barrientos accompanied by Mr. Juan Jose, Councillor, Embassy of Bolivia, even visited Su-Kam’s Research and Development wing and the factory at Gurugram. He met Su-Kam Managing Director Mr. Kunwer Sachdev and the discussion between them centered on the potential of bilateral trade between Bolivia and India. There were also talks about the possibility of Su-Kam imparting training to manpower of Bolivia in the solar and power electronics segment. The delegates saw a big scope for using Su-Kam’s technology in the power sector. Su-Kam is also mulling over exporting their products to Bolivia and customizing them as per the country’s requirement.

Regarding the future of India-Bolivia ties, Bolivia ambassador Mr. Barrientos said: “We are the future of the world. We are both really young countries; our future lies with each other. The sooner we realize this, the sooner we will work together. We will start selling and buying in each other’s markets. We see the future of humanity in countries such as yours. We are expecting our minister of foreign affairs to be here next month. This is our way of enhancing diplomatic and economic ties with India.”

“We are honoured to host Ambassador of Bolivia. Since Bolivia has large untapped reserves of lithium and India has advanced technology, our country can play an instrumental role in imparting the technical know-how to Bolivia’s population and bridging the power deficit in the country. We look forward to a mutually beneficial association in the long run,” said Mr. Kunwer Sachdev, Su-Kam Managing Director. 

Bolivia is a goldmine of lithium reserves which are yet to be tapped. According to an estimate, the Bolivian Andes harbour 70 per cent of the planet's lithium. However, a significant portion of the country’s population does not have access to grid electricity. These lithium reserves coupled with superior technology can be instrumental in meeting the electricity demands of the country.
