Clubs/ forums such as Engineers Without Boarders, Astronomy, UAV, Robotics, SAE give students a platform to apply their knowledge to develop and innovate new products/ solutions.

Regular interactive workshops conducted by industry leaders and renowned scientists allow the students to identify and discuss the latest developments and requirements in the engineering domain. A recent example is the three day workshop on “Tomorrow’s Engineers” during the month of March was of immense value as students were able to interact with the likes of Dr. Krishaswamy Kasturirangan, an Indian space scientist who headed Indian space research organization (ISRO) from 1994 to 2003.  Dr. Krishaswamy Kasturirangan is a recipient of the three major civilian awards from the Government of India,  the Padma Shri (1982), Padma Bhushan (1992) and Padma Vibhushan (2000).

Photo Speaks: Drive Safely - Wish you don't need to be driven around!


Photo Speaks: Do not give up! or rather Fight it out!.


Do not give up! or rather Fight it out!. It was pleasant to see the loaded bullock cart plying through the busy city traffic of Coimbatore, which has one of the best mobility options for goods transport.

Vishu and Cashew Nuts - money money money!




Month of April and it is holiday season for children. Added with many festivals including Vishu.
A quick visit to my home in Kerala and a walk around brought back memories of my childhood days. We used to wait for the exams to finish and then starts the family visits. Children will come to our home as well as we visit their homes. In the villages, with farming and cultivation, it used to be fun all along. For us, the season brings an additional source of income to supplement our expenses, as pocket money used to be very very limited. Except for the 1 rupee or 50 paise given to us as "Vishu Kaineettam" - a tradition where elders give money to those younger to them on the day of Vishu, there was absolutely no source of money to either buy any toys or go for a movie at the local cinema. This is when we gather together and walk around and collect the fallen cashew nuts and then take it to the local vendor and sell them and keep the cash. The nuts are sold and the fruits are mostly eaten while collecting or on the way.

Of course and obviously the vendor will give us only lesser amount than the normal market rate as he knows very well that this is something we do without permission of our parents or relatives (although all parties are aware!).

Gone are those days, and now children have several other ways to keep them engaged, and money is not an issue at all. Engaging or getting them engaged is now a main source of income by means of "Summer Camps". Advantage and disadvantage of modernization!.

This post is intended to all those who enjoyed the olden golden days will cherish remembering those days.

Southern Beauty - A minute with ClicksandWrites

A quick round up of the beauty I saw through my lens during a short visit to Coimbatore, Palghat and Trichur. Most of the photos in this presentation are taken using mobile phones. Once again it is my way to prove what I say and write, Photography is a good way to create a positive effect when adversities of life target you in strange and uncertain ways!

Technology behind Red Bull Air Race Pylons - A minute with ClicksandWrites



Red Bull Air Race Abu Dhabi
Friday, 11th March 2016
@redbullairrace #airrace
Made with a special lightweight nylon, the pylons for Red Bull Air Race are designed with maximum safety and efficiency in mind. While they define the course, they are not there to get in the way; quite the opposite actually.
If a plane makes contact with a pylon, it is designed to breakaway or tear, with the air-pressurized structure falling away immediately. From there a specialized team kicks into action, and the ensuing few minutes are poetry in motion, not unlike watching a Formula 1 team perform a pit stop.

Rain and Thunderstorm 09th March 2016 Abu Dhabi

Rain and Thunderstorm 09th March 2016 Abu Dhabi


UAE is experiencing bad weather these days and it is our primary objective to value safety on the roads, not only for us, but also for our fellow drivers. Safety starts before you drive, and our goal should be to see and be seen. Replace windshield wiper inserts that leave streaks or don’t clear the glass in a single swipe. Make sure all headlights, taillights, brake lights and turn signals are properly functioning so other drivers will see you during downpours. Turn on your headlights whenever you drive. Proper tire tread depth and inflation are imperative to maintaining good traction on wet roadways. Check each tire’s pressure, including the spare, at least once a month… and be sure to check the pressure when the tires are cold.
Also, please note to:
• Avoid Cruise Control
• Slow Down and Leave Room
• Respond carefully to a Skid

For those parents with children interested or not interested in Photography, this will be a very good exercise to have them observe the nature, the seasonal changes and to observe and realise how nature announces the arrival of the seasons in its own way.
