            As each year goes by, DAAN’s presence at colleges keeps growing by leaps and bounds. Though we live and study in the same campus,
    DAAN members are not connected in most places. The first step to bring DAAN members on campus together began with the Orientation Parties
    that were a great success. Dakshana proposed the next step as connecting with a faculty member on each campus. And so began high-power
    meetings between DAAN members and a Professor on their respective campuses. These meetings have given DAAN a special recognition with their
    faculty and a promise of strength and support in the future. Let’s have a peek into how these events unraveled.

                     4.   Counseling on campus/hostel life and environment
                     5.   Volunteering for Dakshana activities and events

          This interaction should help all DAAN members to successfully complete their engineering college studies and then go forward with
          confidence into the workplace and the business world.

          The first batch of Dakshana scholars - those students who completed Dakshana coaching in 2008 – will be graduating from college with
          undergraduate degrees in the summer of 2012. And we encourage these Dakshana Alumni to also register on the DAAN website, so
          that we at Dakshana can follow their progress and careers in the years ahead, and likewise they can keep in touch with their fellow
          Dakshana Alumni and perhaps assist their juniors wherever they can.

          Overview:
                                                                                                                                                     5
          Each DAAN member will have his/her own exclusive account on the DAAN website, where he/she can upload their photo and put
          together their Public Profile – for viewing by other DAAN members – and their own confidential Private Profile – for their own
          personal use, with access to this confidential information restricted to the Dakshana/DAAN management only.

          Each DAAN member would login and then register as a first-time user. On successful login, every DAAN member will automatically be
          assigned a new DAAN-assigned email address that will be valid for lifetime. This DAAN-assigned email address will be the User ID for
          all subsequent logins. This Dakshana email ID/address would be linked to the personal email ID/address chosen by the DAAN member.

          Soon after initial registration, each DAAN member would enter his/her contact data, public profile information and upload his/her
          photograph. The confidential private profile section will provide the facility to enter detailed personal contact data including
          permanent home address and mobile phone number, personal academic record and a resume/CV for their personal use for summer
          internship and employment purposes.

          On subsequent logins to the website, members would go to the tab marked My Dashboard. This screen will be the virtual work-desk
          for the DAAN member! From here, he/she can access all information provided on the DAAN website, send and receive messages,
          browse through emails posted on the “message board”, search and look up the public profiles of others, engage in a “chat session”
          with one or more DAAN members and also be able to view/edit/update/upload all personal data in their personal website account.



          The DAAN website would provide useful and important information regarding:

                    1. Dakshana & DAAN team charts
                    2. Loans and scholarships
                    3. Newsletters and news updates
                    4. 3rd year summer internships
                    5. Job search and/or post graduate studies
                    6. Events and functions
                    7. Campus initiation for new DAAN members
                    8. Volunteering for Dakshana activities and events
                    9. URLs for DAAN blog sites at various colleges
                    10. Accessing study materials and eBooks uploaded on to the website
                    11. Photo Gallery
                    12. Feedback/Contact info on key DAAN council members and Dakshana/DAAN administrators

          A separate Election Module has also been created. This will allow the DAAN members to conduct Annual Elections each summer by
          voting online to elect the various DAAN office holders for the next academic year.

                                  Summer 2012 Internships for DAAN members at premium companies




                                                The Internship and Placement Cell of DAAN has begun working successfully. In its first
                                         initiative, the Internship cell was successful in getting internships for 10 DAAN members at
                                         Deloitte Consultancy Hyderabad, Syntel and Systems Technology Group.

                                         The Internship Cell has been the brainchild of Colonel Sharma, CEO Dakshana Foundation.
                                         Ranjit Sir has played a very crucial role in the kick start of the Internship Cell. He contacted
                                         various companies for internship opportunities for Dakshana Alumni. Shashank Dubey, as
                                         Head of the Internship Cell, has been very active in spearheading this activity.

                                         The Internship Cell provides internship opportunities to pre-final year Dakshana Alumni.

                                                                      GDST 2012
       The Grand Dakshana Selection Test this year was conducted on 01 April 2012 at 24 locations across India. This year too, like last year, DAAN
   members volunteered to conduct the test at all locations. They travelled from their colleges to the test centre locations, some of which were in
   close vicinity while some others were an overnight journey away by train. The volunteers opted to sacrifice a weekend of being with their friends
   at college and spent it at the JNV test center planning, organizing, managing people and situations, leading the way at the most important
   Dakshana event of the year.

   Volunteering at the GDST is not an easy task. It involves tremendous effort, patience, enthusiasm, and tolerance. The volunteer has to keep calm
   in highly tense situations and have great presence of mind to take the right decision in case a crisis arises. The DAAN members who volunteered
   for GDST 2012 have done an excellent job of conducting the test with ease. In some locations they were assisted by Dakshana volunteers who are
   professionals in various fields.

   Dakshana is grateful for the dedication and zest displayed by the following DAAN members for this event:

DAAN members as mentors

        Mentoring Dakshana scholars at coaching JNV locations is an important activity on the DAAN manifesto and DAAN members have undertaken
this activity with great gusto. What happens at these mentoring visits? The mentor reviews the topics covered from the syllabus and clears doubts
that scholars may have on those topics. Between December 2011 and March 2012 these DAAN members made the following mentorship visits:

             Ranjith J N (IIT Madras) & Naveen S N (NIT Suratkal) visited JNV Bangalore Urban
             Vishnu K (IIT Madras) & Vinod E R (IIT Madras) visited JNV Kottayam

DAAN members volunteered to conduct the Post IIT JEE Orientation (which was designed by the IIT Bombay DAAN members)

             At JNV Bangalore Urban on 9th April 2012 - Varun T (NIT Warangal)
             At JNV Ranga Reddy on 13th April 2012 - Pravin Kumar Shedolkar and Rajesh Kumar Meena (IIT Hyderabad)

                                                                   This was part of my project which began in summer 2011 under Dr. Laxmidhar Behera,
                                                                   Department of Electrical Engineering, IIT Kanpur, and it is still in progress. The main idea of this
                                                                   project is to develop a robotic fish which can swim like real fish in water. Alongside is a picture of
                                                                   the hardware skeleton of the fish.

                                                                   The future scope of this project is to make a fish equipped with pollution sensors that can go
                                                                   deep inside a water body to detect the pollution level of the water. Since I have another year, I
                                                                   will continue this as my B. Tech Project (every B.Tech student has to do it in his 4th year).



                                                                   How did I get this project?

  Projects that we do during college turn out to be very useful to show our work experience in the field of our interest. When we apply for
  higher studies (MS and Ph.D.) our project work supports our application and increases chances of our selection into the University of our
  choice. If our project is good, then definitely the mentor will give us a ‘Strong’ recommendation which is also helpful when we apply to foreign
  Universities. I went to Professor Dr Laxmidhar Behera, from the department of Electrical Engineering who is good in the field of Robotics. I
  went with an idea of making a robot of some kind, discussed the feasibility, and requested calculations from him. He was not convinced with
  my idea but he asked me to develop a Fish (Probably he was convinced that I will work sincerely from the discussion). Then I started working
  on the project with a PhD student Samrat Dutta as a mentor and the work is in progress.

                                                              Message to Dakshana Scholars
