Torn from his familiar haunts in the woods and separated from his mother, the bear is now caged forever. Listless and dull, the bear whiles away his days within the confines of steel bars. His bored existence comes to an abrupt halt one day when Providence proffers him a chance for escape. Does he find his way back home? The film is intended to be construed as a perspective other than ours and aims to shed light on the topic of human encroachment. It provokes the audience to reflect on the price we don t pay for our comfort. To justify the theme, the film employs a fairly experimental form of narration juxtaposing two time periods before and after human encroachment.

Due to demonetization in India in 2016 and various other reasons a huge volume if Indian currency is discarded and around 150 tons of it is shredded every day. These shredded currency are a huge waste and hencee there was a need of developing a way to sustainably consume this waste. The idea was to create pencils using these shreds replacing the wood. This is a twofold sustainable idea as it takes care of the currency waste and saves trees from cutting down for making pencils. 23 Mohammad Zijah Transportation & Automobile MDES Siemens PLM Software Excellence Award (Team#5) Mr.Vipul Vinzuda

Date: 12th to 16th June The certificate was given on behalf of the International program committee Anna Puig and Tobias Isenberg (Poster Co-chair). For the poster her guides were Chakradhar Saswade and Dr. Aneesha Sharma. Project Description: While exploring on the topics which have been seen as the social stigma, for example, depression, I stumbled upon this club which consists of musicians and artists who died at the age of 27. This unique age captured my attention and I started exploring more on the topic. The 27 Club is a term that refers to a number of popular musicians who died at age 27, often as a result of drug and alcohol abuse, or violent means such as homicide or suicide. The number of musicians who have died at this age and the circumstances of many of those deaths has given rise to the idea that premature deaths at this age are unusually common. There have been many different speculations about the causes of such early deaths and their possible connections. Although humans die regularly at all ages, there is a statistical spike for musicians who die at 27.

We spoke to Air Traffic Controllers and pilots and visited the ATC tower in Delhi and to understand what they think could enhance their performance and have got their feedback on the solutions we have proposed. The Surveillance solution includes 3D view of the currently existing 2D radar in the traffic control room and night vision from the ATC tower for a better view to direct planes to alight and land efficiently and with more safety. The communication solution includes accent correction with artificial intelligence when pilots and ATC communicate. These proposed solutions will work in conjugation with each other and work as assistive tools in the operations of the ATC and pilots. The team is hoping that the solutions they have proposed get implemented after consultation and working together with people from different backgrounds and expertise such as aeronautical engineers, computer science engineers, designers, pilots, ATC personnel etc. (source:

She is overwhelmed by the nuances of his (the Pottans) character and thinks he is a paragon of virtue who has fought and given his life for the equality of human race. She also believes that she too, like Pottan, can do just anything. While her mother gives her dreams their wings, over a period of time Ponnu finds herself in the midst of a conflict of culture. She realizes that the society she lives in treats girls as the inferior sex and denies them any kind of freedom. She does not know whether she should live by the stories and ideals her mother has taught her or the norms of society. She seeks reassurance in Pottan, but her innocent choice is seen as overstepping the boundaries of propriety. Keli, which means the mark of a beginning, symbolizes her fight. (Source: Source:
