TECHNOCRATS INSTITUTE of Technology (TIT) students formed an ‘Environment Club’ on April 28 under the guidance of their professors Dr RK Dave (Chemistry department) and Nita Sh1arma (Communication department). With summer at its peak, the first activity of the club will be to motivate students to take up social causes like ‘Save Water’ and planting of new saplings in the college campus.

The new club already has many enthusiasts as members including Richa, Kapil Dev and Mayuri from Computer Science branch, Praneet and Himanshu from IT, Henna and Ajay from Electronics, and Alok, Ambrish, Deepayan and Vidyut from Mechanical branch.

Students who earn and aim high
A SIGNIFICANT percentage of students at Hamidia College are engaged in jobs involving physical labour and what is more, they aim high about their future and do not hesitate to give their hardest efforts to turn it to reality, said college principal Dr Vijay Tiwari.

Many students of the college are engaged in part-time jobs at STD-PCOs, local stores and agencies or are small entrepreneurs themselves.  Some of them also do house painting or work at fields when they are not engaged in academics. Most of them travel to old Bhopal to reach the college from far-off places like Obeidullahgunj, Misrod, Berkhedi, Chiriatol and Ajnal.

For example, Bharti Sahu owns and runs a beauty parlour at her home in Pushpanagar to meet the expenses required for paying fees and buying books. Bharti is pursuing her PhD in History from Hamidia College and preparing for UPSC and PSC exams as well. She will either join civil service or become a college lecturer in future.  

Weak financial background is an obstacle, which almost all of them are determined to overcome. Vinod Kumar, who comes from Damkheda and paints houses in spare time to help out his family, is pursuing post-graduation in Hindi Literature and wants to become a college lecturer.

His classmates Kamal and Ratan, who also paint houses, will pursue journalism after PG. 

Saifia College to celebrate 50 years
SAIFIA COLLEGE is all geared up to celebrate 50 years of its foundation. Soon there will be a meeting of the authorities to chalk out details of the programme that will go on for a few months.

The celebrations will begin from July. The college is planning to have a grand alumni get-together and a host of arresting events related to culture and academics. Ex-students who have won fame in life will be specially invited. The list includes Javed Akhtar, Aslam Sher Khan and Suresh Pachouri.

Students get training
NUTAN COLLEGE MA final year Psychology students visited the Mental Hospital in Gwalior in April as part of their training in psychotherapy. The 13 budding psychologists sat at the OPD, studied the history of psychic patients, diagnosed the problems all by themselves, faced the patients and decided treatment on the spot.

Head of the Department of Psychology Shail Birla Agrawal said Nutan is the only college in Madhya Pradesh to take students for this kind of practical training for papers related to Clinical Psychology.
