ISRO saga inspires students

 Replica of  PSLV set up on top of a school in Jannaram.
The success stories of the Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro) and its successful launching of satellites are not only inspiring the other countries and top scientists but also students from rural areas. 

Students of Adilabad are inspired by the mission Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) by the Isro and they came out with their own projects to develop new technologies at their level.

A big replica of PSLV which was set up on top of a school shows launching of rockets influenced the students a lot. Students are showing science and technology getting inspired with the success story of Isro which has been successfully launching PSLV with indigenous technology. Vasu, a student of Class V at Krishnaveni Talent School at Jannaram, recently manufactured an electric motor which operates with the sound of claps and the project was exhibited at a local science exhibition which attracted many.

Vasu explained about his project which he developed. A motor was fixed to a small table fan and the motor can be started and stopped with the sound of claps. 
He said that other electronic objects can be made on the same principle fixing the same motor. He added that he also read about the eminent scientist Dr A.P.J. Abdul Kalam.

School principal Aziz Baig said that they have erected a replica of PSLV to inspire the students and encouraging them in science and technology and to come out with their own projects especially during the science exhibitions. There are many other students who were coming out with their own projects getting inspired with the Isro projects and were exhibiting them at district level science exhibitions.

Three villages selected under Sansad programme

TS cricket league to take on IPL

Move over IPL. In a bid to turn “ripples into waves”, enthusiasts are trying to form Telangana Cricket League (TCL) to highlight local talent.

And the names of the teams are as creative as it gets with royalty, wildlife and even the weather thrown in for good measure: Hyderabad Hunters, Ranga Reddy Panthers, NizamabadNizams,MahbubnagarThunders,KarimnagarWarriors, Adilabad Tigers,WarangalRoyals, Nalgonda Riders, Khammam Kings, Medak Lions, and Secunderabad Champions.

The aim is to take the T20 format to the district level, giving a platform for rural players to showcase their talent. TCL, with the logo “Impossible is nothing, let us turn ripples into waves”, is not affiliated with the BCCI or HCA.
