Learning about Patenting at NCL, Pune
Posted September 30, 2023

Acquiring knowledge is a never-ending process, a team of twenty students accompanied by Mr. Karan Kharat and Ms. Swapna Brahmam visited CSIR-NCL, Pune on July 11, 2023.

National Chemical Laboratory (CSIR-NCL) is an eminent R&D organization with a focus on chemistry, biology, and chemical engineering. CSIR-NCL belongs to the family of the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), the largest chain of publicly funded research organizations in the world.

The students were formally welcomed by Dr. Wafia Masih, followed by an interaction with Dr. Anu Raghavan who arrived with her three students at the lecture hall. Dr. Anu explained that NCL got the opportunity to do sequencing on the coronavirus during the second stage of the pandemic. They also elaborated on how viruses evolve, the types of viruses, the types of vaccines, why sequencing is important, and how the pandemic affected the whole world. The students had many questions regarding this which led to an intriguing Q&A session.

Some of the learnings from the session were that the COVID-affected patients prominently suffered from heart strokes, sequencing is key to understanding the virus in detail, and the difference between vaccines and antiviral drugs.

This was followed by a workshop on Patents by Dr.Nitin Shukla, Principal Scientist and Head-Intellectual Property Group/NCL. Based on the story of Sukracharya and the Sanjeevani mantra, Dr. Nitin explained Patents with Sukracharya who owns the patent, giving out copyrights to Kacha under some terms and conditions. In the same way, Intellectual property can be protected through patents. For example, the Coca-Cola bottle design and the Monalisa, both are patented.

Dr. Nitin explained how creative inventions could be conserved by various methods like copyrights, trademarks, and patents. The session gave an idea on how to protect creative thoughts and how to market or trade intellectual property.

After the workshop, a quiz was conducted and one of the students won a prize as well. The children returned to school with an intellectual property of their own that they wanted to freely share the copyrights of.

The Sixth Annual Ping Pong Tournament, 2023-24
Posted September 30, 2023

“Sports, in general, have had an important and estimable function in life and will inevitably in future be regarded as the indispensable factor for intellectual and moral growth.
” Shoghi Effendi

To encourage participation in games and promote the physical fitness of students, the school organized the sixth annual Table Tennis Tournament on July 1, 2023. The game format was knockout-based. The scoring follows the format where the first player to get to 11 points is the winner. During the event of a tie, the players needed to play two more points to be the winner. All winners determined by an umpire from Satara would advance to the next round and ultimately would have the chance to be the champion of the tournament.

Hitanshu Rathod, a student of Class XI B shares his experience, “This planning is a mixture of strong passion and dedication for this graceful yet intense sport. Being a part of the tournament, I can speak to how the players feel. We had a before the real game with real scores commenced. I supposed at this point every player was getting to know their opponent’s style although we could make an exception to this assumption; some players just suddenly turned into great professional athletes far from what they had shown in the practice round.

There were nine schools from Satara district and 60 players. After adding 80 from our school, the total was 140, using 4 ping pong tables. We also had a good number of audiences who filled the seats at the sides of our huge auditorium. Games varied from time to time. Some of them were intense all the way and some of them just kept on increasing intensity as they progressed.

One of the most interesting games was between Hitanshu Rathod, NEHS, and Sarthak Patil of Y.C College, Satara who had to play above match point. In the playoffs, both played with finesse to finish third where the lead changed numerous times. However, the story ended with Sarthak's victory and he was also the champion of the under 17 boys’ category!”

An Inspirational Talk By Mr. Atul Gokhale

Through an endeavor - NEHS Talks, students get an opportunity to meet eminent achievers from different walks of life and learn about their valuable life experiences. On July 22, Chef Atul Gokhale, Director - Symbiosis School of Culinary Arts, graced the main auditorium as a guest speaker for the second edition of this initiative. He is an accomplished hospitality education specialist with 34 years of experience in India and abroad in the field of teaching, administration, and the hospitality industry.

Chef Gokhale talked about the culinary industry: The Art of pre-preparation, cooking, and presentation of food. He started helping his mom at a very young age to make goodies at home and always savored his mother's Daal Chawal. His passion grew to such great heights that he chose the hotel management industry over studying in a medical college. He was offered jobs by The Taj Hotel, ITDC, and ITC. His biggest industry-based service was when ITC was asked to serve at the Kumbh Mela. They served 2,00,000 people and were grateful for the privilege of being able to serve others.

He added that a nutritious diet must appeal not only to the taste buds of consumers but to all 5 senses, for example, a chef making a wafer would need to work on aspects like the texture, the sound of a breaking wafer, the taste of the wafer and the most important thing, the appearance and smell of the wafer.

He met his friend Chef Sanjeev Kapoor who inspired him to shift to Mumbai. In 1998, he started his own business which failed at the end of 3 years. He didn’t give up hope because of this minor setback and compared life to a kite that must be taken control of boldly and that the only constant in life is its fluctuations and uncertainties. He explained the importance of family and friends over money as they are the only ones around during the bad times. He also said, "The ladder of success has steps; you cannot skip any step if you want to reach success. Consistency is the only road to reach excellence."
