IIT Kharagpur is thinking beyond technology

By Deepak Malapur

Today's world is filled with cut throat competition, non-stop race for a better career both educationally and professionally and an immense pressure to reach the summit of success before someone else does.


We are in the era where one cannot imagine to pass the exams like board exams or CET or JEE or Civil Services exam without burning the midnight oil. The aspirants have to undergo tremendous amount of mental and physical pressure with regard to studies. Even while gearing up to bag a job for oneself, one has to work day and night to stay ahead of one's competitor.

The above observations are true when it comes to students of all the streams. However, there is good news for the students of engineering stream, especially for those studying and those who look forward to studying at IIT Kharagpur.

The institute wants to create a platform for students, teachers and other staffs on the campus to hold constructive discussions and debates on meaningful life, well-being, overall development of one's personality and nourishing positive thinking.
