Nigaar Khan makes a comeback!

Actress to play ‘Mangala’ in Zee TV’s upcoming show ‘Buddha’

_MG_1117.jpgAlmost a decade after having shot to fame with her show ‘Lipstick’ on ‘Zee TV’, Nigaar Khan is back with a meaty role in Zee TV’s upcoming show produced by Spice Studios – ‘Buddha – The King of Kings’. Playing the role of ‘Mangala’ in the show, Nigaar is doing a historical show for the first time ever! Even though Nigaar has quite the penchant to essay negative roles on the small screen, this character will be a lot different from all that she has played earlier. Talking about making a comeback in a big way, Nigaar says, “For the longest time now, I have been meaning to do something quite off the beaten track. My character – Mangala, is of a lady who wants to see her son as the King and hence turns out to be evil for the world. She is motive-led and just in actions that drive her.”

The producers of the show – Spice Studios are ensuring that no stone is left unturned in making the journey of Buddha towards enlightenment come alive on the small screen. Apart from constructing the most lavish sets to shooting at locales that create the right look and feel, they are also ensuring that their actors look their part. Nigaar for the first time will be seen donning the role of a mother on screen. And while she has played all her previous roles to perfection, she is ensuring that she does full justice to her first historical role, not just in terms of acting but also in terms of looking her part. Nigaar adds, “For the first time ever, I have taken up a historical show and it takes me quite a lot of time to do my makeup and dress up for the show. To recreate the aura of a bygone era, one needs to get the character’s look, body language and demeanor spot on!”

Driven to look perfect, Nigaar opted to have her own special make-up and hair dresser instead of using the one organized by the production house. At most times, she is seen doing her hair and make-up herself since when she thinks that she needs to have that one strand of hair tucked in perfectly to suit her character.

Maldives crooner Unoosha for Pooja Bhatt’s Jism 3…

Unoosha aka Kiddy, the livewire singer from Maldives, is in India to sing her debut Hindi film song in Pooja Bhatt’s Jism 3. Unoosha recorded the song on Tuesday at Tanay Studios, Andheri West.
Unoosha, who thus became the first singer from Maldives to sing a Hindi number in a Bollywood film, had earlier crooned her way to glory with the chartbusting “Heywalla” in the promotional number for Pooja Bhatt’s Jism 2 and has paved her way for the current Hindi film number, thanks to her mesmerising voice.
Says Pooja Bhatt, “When I heard from Unoosha at the South Asian Film Festival (SAFF) that Maldivan singers have never performed in India, forget singing in Bollywood, I felt there was a need to change this.I made a promise to her on stage that she will go home with a contract. And I am happy, she is singing a Hindi song for a mainstream Bollywood film with Jism 3.”
The song will also have Ali Azmat and KK and as though to add on to Pooja’s feelings of music transcending boundaries, the lyrics of the song are about making newer beginnings. The song is composed by Arko Pravo Mukherjee & produced by Munish Makhija.
And aptly the song is called Kahaan se karein shuru. “Yahaan se,” smiles Unoosha, happy to have learnt her first few Hindi words.

Falling Indian Rupee and rising vegetable prices inspire the theme for e-Yantra Robotics Competition 2013

Young engineers from across the country posed with challenges around Urban Agriculture

Mumbai, August 27, 2013: With the Indian economy in tatters on country’s 66th birth anniversary, growth seems to be in trouble. On one hand, the Rupee has lost its sheen and continues to dive down South at a scary pace, on the other hand, the vegetable prices are effortlessly soaring up North. Alarm bells haven’t stopped ringing for quite a while. While the policy makers may fight, debate endlessly and show a fuzziness that is difficult to comprehend, much less appreciate, the need to focus on the relevance of the issue of hunger has never been more urgent than it is today.

World over, Urban Farming has been slowly gathering momentum. Closer to home, our rapidly urbanizing population of over 1.2 billion give us challenges in both food production and distribution. For instance, onions, a staple in Indian diets, have touched Rs. 80 a kilo. How can an average urban family afford vegetables in this situation? Can engineers help solve problems by encouraging Urban Farming?

e-Yantra an MHRD sponsored project under the National Mission on Education through ICT (NMEICT), every year chooses relevant and visible problems that need immediate attention and solution as its theme for its national robotics competition. Young engineering students from across the country use robotics as a tool to find solutions to these problems. Last year it looked at poor road conditions and potholes. This year, keeping the current scenario in mind, e-Yantra 2013 will bring these talented, engineering youths of the country to use robotics to develop indigenous solutions in the field of Urban Agriculture. The objective of the competition is to bring awareness to problems in the Agriculture domain by assigning themes that involve processes in this domain.

Four themes suggested as exemplars of important stages in the agriculture production life cycle are:

– Seeding

– Fertilizing

– Weeding

– Harvesting

Student teams from around the country will work on prototypes of robots such as the seed-sowing robot, fertilizing robot, weeding robot, and harvesting robot.

The aim of the competition this year is to bring awareness to students about the many problems that a farmer faces and how technology may be used to provide solutions to these problems. In the process of creating the prototypes, students learn concepts of Embedded systems, Micro-controller programming and hone their communication skills.

“It has been shown that covered cultivation (greenhouses) can double or triple the yield of vegetables – even allowing us to grow veggies off-season. (cultivation in controlled environments have shown increased yields of produce) When we want to maximise yield in such environments, automation helps us tend the environment and improve yields. For instance, many of the processes in strawberry cultivation abroad, including harvesting of ripe fruit, are automated. Typically this technology is at the early innovation stage in developing countries and it is expensive. There is perhaps a lot that Indian ingenuity might bring to this important domain in future.” said Prof Kavi Arya.

Accordingly, engineering students from across the country will be encouraged to adapt given robots, to tackle four aspects of “covered agriculture”, including seeding, weeding, fertilising and harvesting. Each group of students will program an existing robotic platform to address each of these aspects during a 12-week duration.

“In a growing economy, cheap skilled labour is a myth. Transporting vegetables over long distances amid rising cost of diesel is another cause behind rising costs of vegetables. The time is ripe for urban farming, high-intensity cultivation and for automation to help bring down the cost of food in our cities. If we can grow vegetables locally using automation, it will help bring (cheaper and fresher produce to your kitchen and your tables) and lower costs to a large extent. We hope that engineering students, once stimulated in this manner, will begin to address the larger problems and be the source of innovative technology that the country needs to produce high quality, low cost produce to feed its rapidly growing population” he added.

Prof. Krithi Ramamritham said, ‘The progress of our nation lies in producing high quality (employable) engineers with the education and adequate exposure to technology and the appropriate skill set at a young age to think innovatively and develop indigenous cost-effective solutions. I am sure that the confidence boost provided by participating in the e-Yantra competition will empower young engineers to step forward to address the challenging problems that we face everyday.”

About e-Yantra competition

The e-Yantra Robotics Competition is a pan-India challenge that aims at making robotics accessible to undergraduate students from engineering colleges across disciplines, especially those who don’t have access to facilities and/or mentors. It is the brainchild of two of IIT Bombay’s open source evangelists and veteran professors in Embedded Systems, professors Kavi Arya and Krithi Ramamritham of the institute’s Computer Science & Engineering department.

While distance education works on many levels, when it comes to teaching Embedded Systems and Robotics, it is difficult to get the concepts across because the students don’t have access to any labs or appropriate supervision. To get them initiated in to a hands-on problem solving mode, the e-Yantra team provides each participating team with a robotic kit along with video tutorials that explain concepts in embedded systems and micro-controller programming. The competition may look like a game but in reality it is a process that has enabled these youngsters to evolve into practical engineers with proven problem solving skills, to take on real world problems and arrive at solutions.

A selection process last year had 6000 student registrations following which 131 teams were selected to participate in the competition and put through the necessary training to take part in what has been an exciting formative experience.

NMEICT Mission objectives addressed by e-Yantra:

• Availability of e-knowledge content, free of cost to Indians
— Web-based embedded system courseware
— Video tutorials on programming robots
— Robotics projects and code available under open source for students to build upon

• Spreading digital literacy for teacher empowerment
— Workshops for teachers in embedded systems
— Competitions for teachers to encourage hands-on experiments with robots

• Identification and nurturing of talent
— Competitions for programming robots to solve “real” problems
— Preparing/selection of students for World Skill Competition, etc.

• Experimentation and field trial of low cost access devices for use of ICT in education
— Deployment of robots at engineering colleges across the Nation to aid hands-on learning
