igher disposable incomes coupled with improved affordability & availability is turning masses in to big

igher disposable incomes coupled with improved affordability & availability is turning masses in to big consumers even in the rural areas. On a recent visit to the hinterlands in the south, Nitin Paranjpe, CEO of Hindustan Unilever (HUL), was surprised to spot a packet of Comfort fabric conditioner in a home in one of the hamlets. Fearing that the consumer may have mistaken fabric conditioner for hair conditioner, the head of India's largest consumer products company set out to make discreet enquiries. The lady of the household assured HUL marketers that her purchase was no accident - she revealed that she loved the fragrance and softness of fabric after rinsing it with the conditioner. Such consumer behavior opened Hindustan Unilever's eyes to the kind of choices the countries' consumers are making.

Biocon founder, Dr. Kiran Mazumdar Shaw is well aware of the growth the country is witnessing. She believes that development can still be on a faster track if proper attention is paid on nutritious food, quality education affordable health care and sustainable employment.

S. Parthasarathy, an alumnus of IIT- Madras is living his role of a guiding star to the IT sector. He has pioneered in offering information technology solution in form of a perfect fit for small and medium businesses, providing the entrepreneur better visibility in to the business & helping him in making decisions to stay on top of his business.

N.R. Narayan Murthy, the famous son of a school teacher, built and led country's second largest software export company, Infosys for 33 years & earned it the pride of being the most respected company of the country, recently recalled his journey at Infosys which he started with his six friends in 1983. His life story should be a confidence booster to every average person that he or she can make at least a small difference in this world. Murthy, an M.Tech from IIT-Kanpur, with his $ 6 billion IT enterprise has given India strong wings.

Harish Hande, a pass out from IIT- Kharagpur is a renewable energy entrepreneur with extensive grassroots experience in meeting the energy requirements of rural households. His experience includes a large number of health, education and water related projects; over 500 small rural and urban health clinics, over 1000 rural and semi-urban schools and over 1500 irrigation and drinking water systems.

There is no stopping for those who aspire high. A 17-year-old schoolboy from Noida has achieved a rare double, after being the youngest Indian to scale Mount Everest; he has ascended its neighboring peak Mt Lhotse. Arjun Vajpayee, a class 12 student of Ryan International school in Noida, reached atop the 8,516 metre Mt Lhotse, world's fourth highest peak on 21 May 2011. Arjun became the youngest Indian to climb the world's highest summit, the 8,848 metre high Mt Everest, at the age of 16.

arise

in

us

into

Tactions. The quality of thought

is ordered by the nature of our inner “belief” and “faith”. This faith is turned into a conviction, a bond forever which is

bound to see triumph in every endeavor of teacher and student of Resonance. The manifestation of this conviction is visible in the phenomenal results of our students in IIT-JEE 2011 & AIEEE 2011.

It happened after a long period of 25 years that residents of Kota hold the success flag with two ranks out of TOP-5 General Category Ranks in IIT-JEE. Shubham Mehta (AIR-02) & Nisheeth Lahoti (AIR-05), students of two-year classroom contact programme at Resonance, own this pride of success. The year 2011 has been 'annus mirabilis' for Resonance as with

1813 quality selections in IIT-JEE 2011, we have achieved the BEST

RANKS through classroom programmes from any coaching institute in West, East, North & Central India. Apart from 837 selections through Kota Study Centre, there have been a good number of selections from various Study Centres of Resonance. These include 837 selections from Kota Study Centre, 101 from Mumbai, 68 from Delhi, 59 from Jaipur, 41 from Nagpur, 40 from Bhopal, 40 from Lucknow, 05 from Kolkata, 02 from Udaipur & 01 from Bengaluru. All these students have been from Regular

Classroom Contact Programmes. Of 1813 total selected students,

1194 are from the Yearlong Classroom Contact Programme and

619 are from Distance Learning Programme. Resonance holds 13.33% Selections out of Total Selections from India (1813 out of 13602) in IIT-JEE 2011. List of illustrious students enclose 17 All

India Ranks in TOP-100, 13 Ranks (2, 5, 14, 23, 26, 31, 35, 36, 57, 66, 87, 90, 95) are from Yearlong Classroom Contact Programmes and

04 (11, 18, 24, 88) are from Distance Learning Programmes.

Started in 2006, Resonance's PCCP Division has churned out good results as four of our students in TOP-100: Mridul Garg (AIR-23), Mehul Goyal (AIR-26), Anmol Garg (AIR-66) & Astha Agarwal (AIR-90), have been students of regular classroom coaching at Resonance, since class VII. They began their preparation at PCCP Division.

The Ignited (I) Batch of Resonance has yielded results as expected and top merits have been achieved by students from this batch. The formation of the Ignited Batch has proved to be a fruitful concept. In this batch, 20 best performers are selected from different courses of class XI and are specially guided for top ranks. Shubham Mehta and Nisheeth Lahoti have got selected in five- member team to represent India at the 42nd International Physics Olympiad (IPhO-2011) to be held from 10th to 18th July in Bangkok, Thailand. The five-member Indian team will compete in the Final Stage of IPhO 2011 where nationally selected teams from

83 countries are expected to participate.

Commendable selections of girl students registered 161 girl selections from Resonance (Classroom: 109 | Distance learning:

52) in IIT-JEE 2011, vis a vis 1491 total girl selections in IIT-JEE 2011. Astha Agarwal, a student of Yearlong Classroom Programmes at Jaipur Study Center acquired AIR 90. Astha has outshined in various other competitive exams which include a Silver Medal in International Junior Science Olympiad held in Baku, Azerbaijan in 2009, securing a place in the top 6 member

houghts

manifest

that

team in Asian Physics Olympiad and getting amongst 35 students in the third round in International Physics Olympiad in 2011. The new step taken by Resonance in 2007 of forming separate batches for the students of Hindi Medium has stirred up stunning results with 278 selections (Classroom: 267 | Distance Learning: 11) in IIT-JEE 2011, with AIR 638 (GEN) achieved by Rajendra Singh. As a mark of good corporate social responsibility, the sincerity and dedication of Resonance in the two-year classroom training of Jawahar Navodaya Vidalya, Bundi students for IIT-JEE for zero fee, has paid off and a total of 15 students out of 45 have got selected in IIT-JEE, 2011. Out of these students, Nirmal Gandhi has achieved the Highest Rank in general category with AIR 1077. Resonance's success in IIT-JEE 2011 is followed by good results in AIEEE 2011. Out of the total 9283 selected students, 6488 students are from Classroom Contact Programme & 2795 students are from Distance Learning Programme and Resonance's students have secured 4 AIRs (10, 16, 39, 40) in TOP-40 Ranks. Divyam Bansal & Shubham Mehta scored All India Ranks 10 & 16 which are the best ranks in AIEEE 2011 from any institute in Kota. I firmly believe that AIEEE and AIPMT in coming years will provide a stronger base to Resonance. The selection of 6488 students from the classroom programmes in AIEEE 2011 will assure all IIT-JEE aspirants about their success in various competitive examinations also. There has been an increase in MQMR (Cutoff marks) in IIT-JEE 2011 as compared to the previous year. The Minimum Qualifying Marks Required (MQMR) for General Category rose this year to 229 from last year's 190. The analysis of JEE question paper shows that the questions were not new to Resonance' students. Still, it is good to remember a few things like a students must implement time- management skills that they learn during the course of their training at Resonance, while solving the question paper. Besides this, they must work consistently at improving quantitative skills. The use of calculator inhibits calculation ability, and is a strict no-no for students. The fresh arrival of aspirants is here with their utmost trust in the academic services at Resonance, and I welcome them whole- heartedly. Our 'VIJETA' course students, after completing one year, are heading towards their goal. The aspirants in the 'VISHWAAS' course are advised to learn from their predecessors who have achieved success with the relentless efforts in just one year. Those who have joined in 'VIKAAS' and 'VIPUL' in two year foundation course will need to best utilize their time to learn the concepts deeply and carry out continual practice. The number of successful girl students in IIT-JEE in the recent years has been on the increase. I feel very happy that among the successful girls to join IIT in 2011, every 9th girl is from Resonance. I would like to advise the repeater students of 'VIJAY' that they should feel assured of their capabilities and leave no stone unturned to benefit from the learning of the previous year. I and my whole Resonance Team assure the students that we will remain firmly committed to help students meet their career goals and objectives.

IIT-Bombay - a big draw

for JEE toppers

or students who made it to the

top in the IIT-Joint Entrance

FExam, Computer Science seems

to be in vogue, and IIT-Bombay is their first choice. Shubham Mehta, who stood second in the exam, has decided to opt for Computer Science in IIT, Bombay. “The corporate exposure, besides a wide array of opportunities in the financial capital of the country, will give us lot of advantages,” said an elated Shubham.

There are many like him who are giving a miss to established centres like IIT- Kharagpur, Kanpur and Delhi. Figures also suggest that over the years the placements of IIT-B have surpassed other campuses.

“IIT-Bombay

incubation

added Shubham Mehta.

Figures suggest that in 2010, 69 students in top 100 of IIT-JEE went to Mumbai for engineering. In 2009, 62 students in top 100 went to IIT-B.

The trends also suggest that students who have been selected in competitions like NTSE, and Physics, Maths and Chemistry Olympiads have performed better in IITs. Top rankers like Shubham Mehta (AIR-02), Nisheeth Lahoti (AIR 05), Tanmya Vittal (AIR-10), and Astha Agarwal (AIR 90) had won many competitions at national & international level.

For example, Shubham Mehta and Nisheeth Lahoti are representing India in 42nd International Physics Olympiad scheduled for July 2011 at Bangkok. Astha Agarwal had won many competitions in Class X, XI and XII and has proven herself well at International Junior Science Olympiads and (IJSO) & Asian Physics Olympiads in 2009.

The latest trend, which may create a debate, is that students start preparing for IITs while in Class VIII and IX. Data says success rate of such students who started preparing before Class X doubles. No doubt, Shubham Mehta made a good decision to join the coaching classes when he was in Class VIII.

to benefit the country. At the nano-

fabrication centre, we will be looking at four to five areas of technology such as fuel cells, nano-sensors, biological sensors

etc. Our effort is to make all this possible at

a low cost so that it is beneficial to all. ”

Nanoscience & technology is a minor area, which any student, irrespective of the degree one is pursuing at IIT, can choose as a special subject. Since nanotechnology is primarily a combination of Physics, Chemistry, Biology, it is not taught as a specific course.

A student, therefore, can opt for

Nanoscience & Technology along with a degree course and complete this special subject in a period of four years.

Nanoscience & Technology requires nine

courses, which a student needs to study and clear. However, the degree awarded

Elementary test on English proficiency

t has been our experience that some

JEE entrants have such a severe

Ipaucity in English, that their

academic performance suffers inordinately in the first semester and this affects their confidence detrimentally during their subsequent academic career at the institute. All JEE entrants to IIT Bombay in 2011, therefore, undergo an elementary test on English proficiency at the start of the semester. Students who score less than 20% in this test and who further have a total score in Physics, Chemistry and Maths of less than or equal to 150 are put in a semester long intensive programme in English, Physics, Chemistry, Maths immediately. Students registering for the courses in this Programme are evaluated only with Passed /Not Passed (PP/NP) grades.

During the second semester, such students will undergo those courses that they would have registered for in the first semester, had there been no intensive programme. They would not be allowed to simultaneously register for advanced courses in Physics, Chemistry or Mathematics until they pass these courses.

'India's Fermentation Queen' or 'One of the most prominent faces of Bangalore and India' are the other prominent titles that conferences and magazine covers have proclaimed for months and for years. 'India's fourth-richest woman with a net worth of $900 million!'- that's how Forbes magazine described Kiran Mazumdar Shaw

in its September edition of 2010.

Biocon, founded by Dr Kiran Mazumdar Shaw, boasts of world-class research outsourcing capabilities, US FDA-

compliant bio-manufacturing facilities and

a self-financed R&D pipeline. Employing

more than 5300 people, it is regarded as the

seventh largest employer among the top 100 global biotechnology companies. Having

many firsts to its credit, the company has created a strong presence in the global market - Europe and Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) in western Asia through subsidiaries AxiCorp, Germany and NeoBiocon in Abu Dhabi respectively. It has also set up offices in Brazil, Abu Dhabi and Malaysia.

A Tale of great Turnaround

Unlike many high-tech entrepreneurs, who plunge into business with little more than a doctorate and a dream, Kiran Mazumdar Shaw had been plugging away for two decades with a master's degree in brewing. After graduating from Bangalore University with a zoology degree, she told her father that she wanted to pursue a career in applied sciences but he suggested making beer. I said, "My God, why I would want to do brewing?” He said, "Don't look down on brewing. Look at it as a science.”

She moved to Australia in 1974 and enrolled in what is now the University of Ballarat, outside Melbourne, to study malting and brewing. She graduated in 1975 as the top student and became India's first female brew-master. “Going to Australia was quite a transformational phase of my life. I'd led a very protected and charmed life in India, and suddenly I had to fend for myself," she said. When she returned home, breweries wouldn't hire her because they feared she could not handle the odd shifts and male- dominated workers' unions. She soon found that opportunities for brew mistresses in India were few, but that the uses of fermentation are many. Passing up a chance to brew beer in Britain, she formed a joint venture in 1978 with an Irish company called Biocon to manufacture enzymes for packaged fruit juices.

She incorporated Biocon India on November 29, 1978, in her garage in Bangalore with a capital of ` 10,000 and used

a rented, 3,000-square-foot shed nearby as

her factory. Her first employee was a car mechanic. “It was like a kitchen-sink

operation,” she said. “I had a real problem getting people to work for me because I was

a woman.”

The next year, Biocon started exporting

enzymes to the U.S. and Europe, according to its website. Mazumdar-Shaw then realized that the same processes that make enzymes for beer - growing microbes in large vats under precise temperatures and pressures - could be applied to making medicines. Insulin, a hormone, can be made synthetically in a similar process.

“I could actually leverage all that I had done

for enzymes and start applying it to biopharmaceuticals,” she said. Mazumdar-Shaw saw an opportunity in India after learning that most insulin there was made by foreign companies. “That all

sort-of rung a lot of alarm bells in my mind."

I said, "Hey, this is the space I should be in. And the rest is history!" Today the brewing enzyme business Mazumdar Shaw started has grown into Biocon, India's largest biotech company and Asia's biggest producer of insulin. Biocon is poised to ramp up competition in the $14 billion global insulin market, which is

d o m i n a t e d

Sanofi-Aventis, and Eli Lilly. Demand for insulin is expected to increase 20 percent a year through 2015 as the number of diabetics tops 285 million globally, according to market researcher RNCOS. “In India's biggest drug supply deal so far, Biocon and Pfizer (PFE) in October agreed that the Bangalore-based company will produce insulin for the U.S. drug giant, which abandoned that business more than three years ago after taking a $2.8 billion charge on its Exubera inhalable insulin. Biocon will supply four generic insulin products to be sold initially in emerging markets, including India and Brazil.”

Tending Philanthropy In 2004, Dr. Majumdar Shaw started the Biocon Foundation to conduct health, education, sanitation, and environment programs for the benefit of the economically weaker sections of society. The Foundation's micro-health insurance program has an enrolment of 70,000 rural members. Its 7 ARY clinics are located where healthcare facilities are poor and offer clinical care, generic medicines and basic tests for those who cannot afford them. Each of the clinics serves a population of 50,000 people living within a radius of 10 km. All the clinics organize regular general health checks in remote villages by bringing in physicians and doctors from network hospitals. Each year, the Foundation touches more than 300,000 lives through its holistic healthcare approach. The Foundation also provides mobile medical services, and conducts preventive health education programmes and free health-care camps. She helped establish a 1,400-bed cancer care center at the Narayana Health City campus at Boommasandra, Bangalore, along with Dr. Devi Shetty of Narayana Hrudayalaya in 2007. Called the Mazumdar Shaw Cancer Centre (MSCC), it is one of the largest cancer hospitals of its kind, spread as it is over an area of five lakh square feet. It specializes in head and neck cancer, breast cancer and cervical cancer.

Changes to lead by and live by

Deep engagement with her environment is Zen for her. The city she lives in, industry for which she is the forerunner, company she has built and then reinvented she is hands-on everywhere. Dr Kiran Mazumdar Shaw, CMD of Biocon, is raring to go some more distance to be the change she wants to see. Strategic transformation In the last 10 years, she led the transformation of Biocon from an enzyme maker to a bio pharmaceutical company from the front. “The strategy to pursue this transform ation path has been that of a

differentiation
For Biocon, this

strategy translated into technology becoming the first differentiator. Then followed the development of technology platform to build this business, which at a broad level was fermentation. The company chose microbial fermentation, pichia fermentation and cell culture as platform differentiators. “When one follows a technology-driven strategy, it is important to identify and plug the gaps. When we realized that biomanufacturing is going to be an all-pervasive strategy for us, we decided to add mammalian cell culture. And that's where partnership with Cuba's Center for Molecular Immunology came in,” she says. Next on line was the product strategy. Biocon went though painstaking details again to zero down on the products to build and develop from API to statins to finished products to the disease area leading it to diabetes, which today still is the single largest unmet medical need in India. “We went on to combine our insulin strategy with the pichia fermentation platform,” she adds. The Cuban opportunity also allowed Biocon to focus on the autoimmune diseases. For Dr Mazumdar Shaw, all these developments came together to formulate into an important mission - the mission of delivering affordable innovation. And that essentially sums up what Biocon is onto, and is a driving factor in every decision that is

taken in the company. Change is her inspiration

She is an inspirational figure for millions of young Indians who want to emulate her as one of the most well known entrepreneurs of the country. But who inspires her?

“I am inspired by a large number of people

who have brought about change despite obstacles, and have done amazing things

irrespective of how big and small these are.

N R Narayana Murthy (Infosys), who has

created the burgeoning Indian software industry, Dr Devi Shetty (Narayana Hrudayalaya), who has created the affordable hospital model, Dr Bala Manian (ReaMetrix), well into sixties, came back from the US to set up a very innovative company in India, Dr P Babu who helped me build Biocon, Dr R A Mashelkar (former DG

of CSIR) who has been instrumental in creating the patent regime in India. I take inspiration from all quarters. In terms of personality type, daring risk-takers who bring about a change inspire me most,”

Dr Mazumdar-Shaw says candidly.

Challenges on the horizon

Dr Mazumdar Shaw is the first one to acknowledge that the challenges are many. Getting to understand innovation and drug development is a challenge, and then taking some of Biocon's products global. Managing the scaling-up is a challenge and keeping the momentum going is itself a challenge. Attracting good people and keeping them as engaged and passionate as she is, is a challenge.

challenge of

The proverbial “next level”

scale Biocon has arrived at a stage where it is counted among the Top 20 pure biotech companies in the world, in terms of size, product portfolio and employees. With a vision of putting a Biocon product in every market, globally, she has already moved to tackle it with a future ready business model.

The recent Pfizer-Biocon deal is a step in this direction. So is the $160 million investment to set up manufacturing and research facilities in Malaysia. Integrating the islands

of excellence that demonstrate efficiency,

competence, reliability into a system that allows scale-up, and consequently gives the competitive edge in the global multi- location market place, is something she believes will be easier to execute along with a partner like Pfizer, which has world class systems in place. So, while the deal is a marketing deal, the learnings from Pfizer will have a far-reaching positive impact on Biocon.

Ten years ago, when Biocon rebranded itself as a biotechnology company, there were many skeptics. Now, 10 years later, there is grudging admiration for the tenacity displayed by Biocon under her leadership. For, despite ups and down, Biocon stuck to the vision outlined by her; delivered a number of products in diabetes and oncology sector, became a leader in the chosen field, built up an integrated platform with manufacturing, research and services, and of course, setting the stage for other companies to follow with a blockbuster IPO in 2005. What has happened in the last decade is just the beginning. The best days of Biocon will come in the next decade, when its insulin products and a few more, will be available in markets around the world.

Today, the biotechnology sector is no more been hovering over the fringes of the Indian industry. It has been shoved to the forefront swiftly.

It rains awards on her

Innumerable awards and recognitions have been bestowed upon her on National and Inter-nation level including a Padma Bhushan in 2005 and a Padma Shri 1989.

She also received an honorary Doctorate of Science in 2004, from her alma mater, Ballarat University, in recognition of her contributions to biotechnology, apart from being awarded honorary doctorates from University of Abertay, Dundee, UK (2007), University of Glasgow, UK (2008) and Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh, UK (2008).

The award she values the most is the one named after the great engineer and visionary Sir M Vishweshwariah, the MV Memorial Award.

Be a Pioneer!

Angel Network (IAN). He is also chairman and CEO of Nu Street Technologies, a cloudware applications start-up Computer Pioneer.

He passed out of IIT-Madras during the days when manufacturing was king in India, and joined Tata Motors' shop floor and hated it. He wanted to do something he enjoyed.

After doing MBA from IIM-Ahmedabad, he could have joined any top company, but really liked this new IT start-up called Wipro. “I was sold out on the dream they painted and worked with them for five years. I saw the company grow rapidly and thought to myself: "If they can do it, so can I." Hence, he set up a third-party computer maintenance company in the late 80's and became pioneer in this segment. “Personal computers were just making their appearance and we soon became synonymous with computer servicing. If someone wanted computer maintenance, they came to us.”

would constantly challenge me. When we were
doing a business of $50,000 a month, he told me
why not $1 million. I worked like a mad man and
made $ 1 million a month. I think this is the role an
angel investor should play. He should be able to
push the entrepreneur to do even better than he
thinks he can. Now, I try to do this as an investor. "

of the future. He exited Computer Garage and used the money to co- found Aztec Software. The plan was to build a cutting-edge product company. “After two years of working on this idea and trying to raise money to fund the company, we realized we did not know how to make this idea into a successful business. So we took stock and used our expertise to turn Aztec soft into an OPD venture. We were realistic and

willing to change our idea. We wanted to win on a global scale. We did phenomenally well and we were the leaders in our segment worldwide. "If someone wanted to outsource their product development, they came to us. As an entrepreneur I knew I did not want to be a me-too."

Nagavara Ramarao Narayana Murthy

Born August 20, 1946 Shidlaghatta, Kolar, Karnataka, India The founder of Infosys Technologies Limited.

I nfosys, the Indian technology company that has symbolized the country's economic rebirth is heading for its

biggest transition in three decades. N R Narayana Murthy, the man who built a global technology services giant out of India, due for retirement in August, is leaving behind a painstakingly-crafted legacy and values which are hard to overlook. Infosys founder N R Narayana Murthy after stepping down as the company's chairman, will don a new role at the country's second-largest software exporter as chairman emeritus. Though Infosys has now increased the retirement age of the chairman from 65 to 70, it will not apply to any of the founders; Murthy says that would be putting the individual above the institution. He will, however, continue to be associated with Infosys as chairman emeritus. The IT czar, known for quick and fast decisions, wants a bigger canvas to paint on. On April 30, Infosys announced Murthy's successor, K.V. Kamath, currently an independent director on Infosys's board and the man credited with having moulded India's largest private sector bank - ICICI Bank - into a financial powerhouse. Kamath will be the first non-founder at Infosys to hold this position.

Co-founder, CEO and Managing Director S. Gopalakrishan (Kris) will become co- chairman; and co-founder and COO S.D. Shibulal, will take over from Kris.

Engineering (B.E.) from University of Mysore in 1967 and his Master of Technology (M.Tech.) from Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Kanpur in 1969. He founded Infosys in 1981 along with six software professionals and is the Chairman of the Board and Chief Mentor Officer of Infosys. The article shares his thoughts on leaving the company he co-founded, the new leadership team and the challenges ahead. Murthy says that he believes that the single biggest achievement of Infosys is that it has been a beacon of hope for young entrepreneurs.

The journey at Infosys

Terming the Infosys journey as an integral part of his life, Murthy said that most of his colleagues tell him that "Infosys is an inseparable part of me and I am an inseparable part of Infosys." “I worked Saturdays, Sundays, every day 16 hours; just Infosys. When I was away from home for as many as 330 days in a year, it was hard for my children to believe in my commitment to the family.” "I have been the Number One actor in every major decision taken in the company. I have rejoiced in every significant milestone of the company. I have commiserated in every false step that this company has taken," he asserted.

false step that this company has taken," he asserted. Both will step down from executive roles

Both will step down from executive roles when they turn 60 in a few years, making way for a new generation of leaders. Mr. Narayana Murthy is undoubtedly one of the most famous persons from Karnataka. He is known not just for building the biggest IT Empire in India but also for his simplicity. He was born on August 20, 1946 in Karnataka, India. He obtained his Bachelor of Electrical

hammered out a kind of mission statement. This was not, he says, to be the best, the biggest or the most profitable, but to “earn the respect of all our stakeholders”. Do the right thing and do the job well, says Mr Murthy, and the rest would follow.

Performance is the promice

As a matter of principle, we would give topline and bottomline guidance and that we are to be held accountable for redeeming the promise that we make to our shareholders. So what I bother about is whether we have performed according to the guidelines that we have given. We cannot go by what others from outside say that we should have achieved.

The challenges ahead

One, we have to become more multicultural. Second, we have to raise our brand to such a level that the CIO of a Fortune 500 corporation must be anxious to get a bid from Infosys for a billion-dollar project. Third, we have to retain our margins while growing at a healthy pace. Fourth, the talent situation in India is becoming graver and graver. Therefore, all of us - the industry, the government and the company- have to work together to correct this. McKinsey has said that there is a US $300 billion opportunity that we can get to as an industry [IT] by 2020 or so. But [we can achieve this] only if we handle this problem; otherwise we will miss out. These [challenges] are for both Infosys and the entire [Indian IT] industry.

always a set of new leaders who will embrace the values, take on the strategy of the company and hopefully improve upon it. Of India's big three IT firms, Infosys is the only genuinely entrepreneurial start-up. The biggest, Tata Consultancy Services, is a subsidiary of India's largest conglomerate. Wipro is a second-generation firm that moved on from hardware. Mr Murthy founded Infosys with six friends. He recalls a long meeting in the bedroom of his apartment in Mumbai, where they

you go through good times and bad times.
When you go through bad times, you learn

hare with us something about your family background: I come from a middle class family. My

father is a businessman, and mother is a home-maker. My parents always wanted me to achieve something great. I feel proud that I fulfilled their dreams. Whom you wish to give credit of your success?

When you take a big leap of success, it is not only you who made this possible. There are many people, named and unnamed, who have contributed to the success. I would like to give credit to my Mother and Father, who did everything for my study, and never let me sense or feel that a problem exists. Apart from that, the credit goes to Resonance, for being such an amazing place to prepare for IIT-JEE; to the faculty at Resonance, without whose brilliant teaching methodology and enthusiastic motivation, it would have never been possible. Last, but not the least, the credit goes to God, who helped me with my luck to get into IIT. What is required to get into IIT?

You need to believe in yourself to get into such a big place. The day I joined Resonance,

those, getting felicitated at Victory 2009, the felicitation function. Regular study, focus towards goal, utmost dedication, honesty to oneself, confidence (but not over confidence), are some of the things I think are really required to get into IITs. Besides these, a proper guidance, and strong emotional support are important to crack

such a big dream. What changes did you find in you after joining Resonance?

tried to solve the problems in “Think to win” page, without wasting time, for which I got prizes three times in a row. It was very inspiring. Other than that, there was news about IITs. Now what happens when you prepare for JEE, each article, big or small, about IITs invokes you to get into the big place, at least this happened in my case. The success stories of the alumnus of Resonance (Reso Reaper) also motivated in preparation of JEE. Any memorable event/incident at Resonance that you wish to share with us: The days of my JEE preparation at Resonance are very dear to me, for each day had something memorable related to it. I would like to share two among them. It was orientation class of Resonance, held at IL Auditorium. The moment I entered the auditorium, there was song playing Lakshya. I was listening to that song for the first time, and that eventually filled me with enthusiasm and motivation. The six hours long orientation lecture passed without a break, from which a sentence by RKV Sir remained embedded in my mind throughout my two years of preparation at Kota. It was, “Today is your first lecture, here at IL auditorium. I would like to meet you after two years, here.”

Accomplishment: I have been associated in the management and organizing team of the cultural and technical festivals of the college. Also, I am currently involved in the designing of Formula-1 car, which will be competing in the FSAE racing, which is an international student's formula car design competition, to be held in Germany in 2012.

Your message for Resonance students: Study regularly; keep in touch with the chapters covered way back; enjoy a little, for this relaxes you and boosts your preparation; and accomplish your dream of getting selected in IITs. There are infinite numbers of people who are there, wishing you success, whose happiness would be on seventh sky when they would see you cracking the big exam.

sometimes frustrating, but most of the times challenging and inspiring to me during the preparation of JEE. Apart from that, I learnt time-management, and to believe in myself. Resonance made me tough and sincere, which I feel are the keys to unlock success in life. Who is your favorite teacher at Resonance?

Well, to account for my views about teachers at Resonance, I admire all who have taught me, as all possess some unique qualities. But if you ask who was my favorite, my answer would definitely be AGL Sir. Your words about RKV SIR: During my days at Resonance, I used to remain scared of RKV Sir. I think his toughness made him one of the best teachers in Resonance. His way of teaching, which often comprised some reading assignments from text books, is what I think, has helped me a lot and helps me even today. You feel good when you solve the problems of sheets & DPPs. But to read the book was something I, and most of my friends, found very boring. But when you come to IITs, you understand why such things are important. Apart from these, the time-to-time motivation given by RKV Sir was just awesome. I also admire him for his wonderful singing, and miss those days when Sir used to fill me with enthusiasm with his wonderful songs, among which the dearest was 'Ruk Jaana Nahi.' Give some tips to increase efficiency while studying.

Paying attention to words of faculty members in classroom completes half of the studies. Writing during studying something adds to completeness and efficiency of learning, rather than just

reading the text. I also believe that regular studies pay you more than the end - time studies.

Two-Yearlong Classroom Contact
Programme (YCCP) at Jaipur Study
Centre acquired AIR 90 (GEN). Here is a
summary of a brief interaction with her.

I am overjoyed with my rank in IIT-JEE 2011 and would like to give the credit of my success to my family and Resonance. I joined Resonance in class X

and started preparing for various competitive exams. The yearlong classroom contact programme trained me for IIT-JEE 2011. This programme is simply the best. The environment at Resonance is friendly and supportive. The sincere efforts of my mentors helped me in achieving my goal. My decision to join Resonance turned out to be a boon for me. No doubt, the nicely planned study material was also equally important. The PTs and CTs further cleared many misconceptions and helped me identify my strong and weak topics. The level & pattern of these tests were like the actual IIT-JEE paper. The guidance & motivation here helped me qualify for the prestigious Kishore Vaigyanik Protsahan Yojana (KVPY) fellowship besides a silver medal at International Junior Science Olympiad, 2009 at Baku, Azerbaijan and an 'Honorable Mention' in Asian Physics Olympiad, 2010 at Israel. I could also manage my School studies and got 93.8% in boards along with 98% in PCM. I would like to make it very clear that no other institute has contributed to my success. I am grateful to all my teachers at Resonance for their support. I strongly recommend my juniors to join Resonance and do well in all the exams they take up.

him into a winner. It gave him an opportunity to compete with
brilliant minds. Joining here, he learnt the art of time
management & smart work. My son was not so brilliant before
joining Resonance. His results fructified with extensive
consistent efforts and excellent mentorship at every step. I
was sure my son will be in the top 10. The day my son got 2nd
rank in IIT-JEE 2011, I was very happy with his achievements.
I felt that he got famous overnight. Resonance felicitation
function (VICTORY 2011) is the most memorable day for me
and my son. It brought such a great sense of happiness & pride
to receive such an elite treatment and to watch him being
felicitated among thousands of parents, students &
distinguished guests.
He wants to get admission in IIT-Bombay. Further, he aspires
to pursue post-graduation studies from the Massachusetts
Institute of Technology. He is one among the selected five-
member team to represent India at the 42nd International
Physics Olympiad (IPhO-2011) to be held from 10th to 18th
July in Bangkok, Thailand. The IPhO is a unique event
designed to discover, to encourage and challenge
exceptionally gifted young students in Physics from all over
the world.

Father was a Junior Engineer in Production department of
Synthetic And Chemicals Limited at Bareilly, Uttar Pradesh
and my mother was a home maker. My sister is a lecturer in
Maharani College and elder daughter, Dr. Pooja Mehta is a
Radio diagnost at PGIMER. My younger daughter is doing
Civil Engineering at NIT, Raipur.
IITs are known to produce successful leaders in every
chosen field, and are good options to start with career in
engineering fields. They help the students to globalize their
potential, elevate their personality and transform into a
hard working, committed treasure. They also give scope to
be recognized as one of the topmost performers. Be it a
small venture or Research and development organization
with an IITian behind it, is proved to be a huge success in
terms of the results produced in a very less time.
Resonance is one of the good coaching classes for IIT-JEE
preparation. The highly competitive environment,
guidance from expert faculty members ensures dedication
and encourages the students work hard. Our first
interaction with Resonance was through a camp 'Akhil
Bhartiya Pratibha Utthan Abhiyan (ABPUA),' which was
organized at Modi Dental College, Kota by Resonance in the
month of April 2009. Shubham, my son, was one of the
participants in this camp at the end of which he decided to
join Resonance for IIT-JEE preparation.
Shubham is blessed with a tremendous ability to memorize.
After joining Resonance, the studious and competitive
environment that was provided at the institute transformed
parents of other students.
As usual we were exposed to many choices regarding
coaching institutes for IIT-JEE. Resonance's Admission
Brochure that lists success figures through various
graphs along with the detailed information impressed us
and put Resonance in a positive frame of sincerity and
trustworthiness.
Our initial interactions with RKV Sir convinced us of the
utmost dedication and strength of the entire system at
Resonance and we believed that the student success is the
sole priority here.
The academic and overall environment at Resonance is
truly qualitative. Teachers are quite knowledgeable and
are immensely supportive. They gave challenging
problems to our son Nisheeth which kept him motivated
to
keep of working hard in the pursuit of his goals. By the
grace of God, our son has got brains and he utilizes it well
Our family is a small one and Nisheeth is our only child.
IITs are India's best institutes for technological studies.
These are institutes of repute and have good infrastructure
and facilities. The chosen brilliant minds go for
engineering studies in these institutes.
During the course of the entire journey of this crucial
preparation, we had our share of good and bad incidents
and we took all those in our stride and kept positive
attitude. But the Felicitation Ceremony (VICTORY) is
permanently etched in our hearts. It was gloriously
wonderful to see each and every students being felicitated
with honour and respect. It truly takes highly demanding
and painful hard work and lot of perseverance to touch
that threshold of victory.
As for Nisheeth, these accomplishments viz. NTSE, KVPY,
5th rank in JEE are quite a good number of achievements
for us. But there are bigger achievements along the way
ahead that would sum up the definition of bright,
rewarding and wholesome life with a great sense of well
being.

I hail from rural area from village Kuraj, district
Rajsamand in Rajasthan. My father is a retired teacher
and mother is a homemaker.
Talk freely with your ward, so that they can share
everything with you & keep on motivating them to
invest good efforts consistently and persistently, for
receiving rich dividends and rewarding returns for the
lifetime.”
My wife, Seema Maheshwari comes from Udaipur,
Rajasthan. Her father has retired from State Legal
Services. Both of us are Science graduates and
government employees. My wife pursued further
studies and earned a graduation degree in Law. She is
working in Rajasthan Legal Services and I am
Superintendent of Customs & Central Excise.
We would like to say to the parents of prospective
students “Don't pressurize your child. Tell him to
enjoy his learning without stress of getting ranks and
positions. Tell him to understand the topic rather than
cramming it. Just tell him to be regular in studies.
Have faith in the Institute and its teachers. Keep in
touch with the faculty. And you shall win!”

IITIITIIT---MADRMADRMADRASASAS

INDIAN INSTITUTE OF MADRAS (IIT-M)

Madras, is one among the foremost

Iinstitutes of national importance in

higher technological education, basic and applied research. In 1956, the German Government offered technical assistance for establishing an institute of higher education in engineering in India. The first Indo- German agreement in Bonn, West Germany for the establishment of the Indian Institute of Technology at Madras was signed in 1959. The Institute was formally inaugurated in 1959 by Prof. Humayun Kabir, Union Minister for Scientific Research and Cultural Affairs. The IIT system has seven Institutes of Technology located at Kharagpur (estb. 1951), Mumbai (estb. 1958), Chennai (estb. 1959), Kanpur (estb. 1959), Delhi (estb. 1961), Guwahati (estb. 1994) and Roorkee (estb. 1847, joined IITs in 2001). IIT Madras is a residential institute with nearly 460 faculty, 4500 students and 1250 administrative & supporting staff and is a self-contained campus located in a beautiful wooded land of about 250 hectares. It has established itself as a premier centre for teaching, research and industrial consultancy in the country. The Institute has fifteen academic departments and a few advanced research centres in various disciplines of engineering and pure sciences, with nearly 100 laboratories organised in a unique pattern of functioning. A faculty of international repute, a brilliant student community, excellent technical & supporting staff and an effective administration have all contributed to the pre-eminent status of IIT Madras. The campus is located in the city of Chennai, previously known as Madras. Chennai is the state capital of Tamilnadu, a southern state in India. Address:

Mr. AYUSH GOYAL (AGL SIR) B.Tech., Chemical Engineering (IIT-MADRAS, 2003) M.S. Purdue University, USA Head of the Department (HOD):

Department of Mathematics

Please tell us something about your early childhood and family background.

I am a resident of Kota and did schooling

from St. Paul's School. We are a big family, blessed with four elder sisters, all studied at

Sophia. I have a 2 years old son Priyansh, an ardent fan of Dhoni! My father worked at JK Synthetics till 1998 when it closed down and thereafter he moved to UP to engage himself in business till 2004 when he returned back to Kota. This was a difficult time for our family, but in 1999 I graduated from my school and got selected in IIT-JEE which was

a much needed heal to us. Then I moved to

U.S. and studied for three years at Purdue

University, since then I have been with Resonance.

What inspired you for Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs)? While I was studying in 7th std., five to six students from St. Paul's got selected in JEE. It was a pride moment for a school to have 6 IITians. A function was organized and our school Father felicitated the students in front of us. This made a long lasting impression on me about the prestige of IIT and I decided to be an IITian to earn the same felicitation from our school Father. This childhood thought laid the foundation of my goal as a

Adds Brilliance to Academic Ambience At Resonance

student. What qualities one must possess to get into IITs? I have always believed that the foremost quality is hardwork and commitment towards studies. One has to be very firm towards daily schedule, and it is regularity that drives success. Secondly, discipline in day-to-day activities helps in maintaining efficiency. To execute all the above, follow what the academic mentors (teachers) guide you.

Please share your experiences at IIT Madras and throw some light on your best moments pertaining to studies there. There were two-three best instances at

IIT Madras which I remember always. The first one was when I gave my first public presentation ever. It was on Bhagvad Gita, a tough topic to prepare, but I prepared it very hard and delivered it to perfection and it won me second award in my batch. I was delighted with it as firstly I had never spoken in public and secondly it was in English.

The second instance was when I was the only candidate selected for summer internship program for Unilever from among approximately 150 odd students after interview and group discussion. Lastly, towards the end of the degree, our HOD Chemical Engineering Department appreciated my sincerity for my summer training and also for my B.Tech Project. These are some moments with fond remembrances.

How is the academic and overall environment at IIT Madras different from other IITs? Well, each IIT has its unique culture and so does IIT-M. IIT-Kanpur and IIT-Madras are known more for their academics. IIT Madras students are more inclined towards pursuing higher studies abroad. IIT-M folks have more exposure with the international students. Due to language barriers, English has become the most accepted mode of communication, but perhaps not the case

with most of IITs. I remember vividly, it was my second day at IIT-M and I was taken to surprise when the cycle mechanic at IIT-M spoke in English! However Madras is not all that happening city as Delhi or Mumbai. The campus is very green and one can find deer roaming like cats and dogs, thanks to the proximity of Guindy National Park.

How has your teaching experience been with the students preparing for IIT-JEE at Resonance? I have always loved to work at Resonance. Here, the entire team is very student- welfare oriented and we feel extremely good and motivated to keep working to

there are many. But teaching at Kota calls for an added responsibility as many students are out- stationed, and a teacher is their social as well as academic mentor. A teacher's prime duty is to impart quality education with discipline. A student learns not just domain knowledge from his teacher but also closely observes teacher's day to day schedule and gets greatly inspired from his attitude and commitment towards work.

Your motto of life/ideologies /values, you live with

I strongly believe in honesty and transparency in dealings. I hate hypocrites and love hard working people. One should

be honest and committed to whatever one does and try to deliver one's 100%. Never try to evade hard work and find short cuts.

Anything else that you feel worth sharing with all students

Everybody knows that not all students can get selected in JEE or NIT's, neither your selection in these exams is the end of the life. Life is larger than what typically at this age we think. One's duty is at whichever phase of life we are at, we should work with full

commitment and honesty towards it. Result is dependent on various factors like your ability, hard work and luck.

We should always aim at working in such a manner that our family and we are always contented that we have placed our best possible efforts. I wish you all good luck in your preparation for competitive exams and hope to deliver our best in your success.

“No amount of tricks works unless you do”.

“Many a times silence is unheard in this noisy world”.

“Those who don't work hard and yet getting good results are just harnessing their reserves”.

The top five successful tips I would like to give to students for their entire journey of IIT-JEE preparation at Resonance

• Attend all classes very regularly and attentively.

• Completion of work in time is a must.

• Be disciplined in your schedule; always give some time at home to study whatever was taught on that day. Reserve some time for revision daily and don't take revision for granted.

• Adopt healthy habits, eat good food, have regular and proper sleep of seven hours.

Whenever you feel dejected and de-motivated or in low spirits, think of the happiness that you can earn for your family with a great result. Parents are students' best motivation source and they should keep their photograph right in front of them, this will always help you to be on your toes and will deviate you from wrong path.

give better education to thousands of kids who have entrusted us this responsibility. I have taught all kind of students from various states and it's always good to be among such a rich cultural mix.

What made you enter the field of teaching? What is the responsibility of a teacher according to you? When I was in US, I learnt that parents can never be issued permanent visa, this prompted me to come back to India. This gave me an opportunity to pursue a career of my choice - teaching. Since I have been a student of RK sir, Resonance was the natural choice. Regarding responsibilities of a teacher,

provide new ways to generate income. His firm has devised a solar-powered sewing machine, for example. Last year Mr Hande started an incubation lab in rural Karnataka, in southern India, to bring together local customers and engineering interns from MIT, Stanford and Imperial College, London. The lab is currently piloting a hybrid banana dryer that runs on biomass during wet spells and sunlight on dry days to make packets of dried banana so that farmers no longer have to rely on selling their crop immediately. SELCO India, founded in 1995 by H. Harish Hande, is a Bangalore-based social enterprise that makes solar lighting technology accessible to the economically impoverished people of India. Harish Hande is an engineer and a renewable energy entrepreneur with extensive grassroots experience in meeting the

energy requirements of rural households. He was born in Bangalore, Karnataka and raised in Rourkela, Orissa, India. After completing his basic schooling in Orissa, he w e n t t o I I T K h a r a g p u r f o r h i s undergraduate studies in Energy Engineering. He then went to the U.S. to do his Master's and later Ph.D. in Energy Engineering at the University of Massachusetts Lowell. Since his graduate student days, Harish firmly believed in the potential of solar energy for improving productivity of rural households. Two critical success factors of SELCO's business model have been its ability to customize its products to address specific needs of the poor and to arrange finance for its customers. Until date, SELCO has sold solar lighting to 120,000 rural homes and several other institutions such as clinics, seminaries and schools in the Indian

state of Karnataka. Employing about 170 people, SELCO services these households from 25 service centers scattered all across rural Karnataka. Although SELCO has been able to establish a sustainable business model that realizes Harish's vision of bringing low-cost energy solution to the economically impoverished, its challenge today is to create greater impact by scaling its business as well as creating an organization that sustains its success beyond the tenure of its founding members. Harish Hande has won the Ashden Award for Sustainable Energy 2005 and Tech Museum Award 2005. Harish has also received the world's leading green energy award from Prince Charles in 2005. In 2007 SELCO INDIA won the Outstanding Achievement Award from Ashden Awards. The award was presented by Al Gore, former Vice President of the United States of America. Harish Hande was named the Social Entrepreneur of the Year 2007 by the Schwab Foundation for Social Entrepreneurship and the Nand & Jeet Khemka Foundation. He was also the featured attendee and speaker at the Clinton Global Initiative 2007. In 2008, Harish Hande was chosen by Business Today as one of the 21 young leaders for India's 21st century. In mid 2008, India Today named him one of the 50 pioneers of change in India. His experience includes a large number of health, education and water related projects:

over 500 small rural and urban health clinics, over 1000 rural and semi-urban schools and dormitories, and over 1500 irrigation and drinking water systems. Dr.

We wouldn't have had the same innovation if we had the money right from the beginning. “In building SELCO, we overcame many challenges & failures." One of the biggest barriers is human resources. We need people who can think holistically. The education system in India right now is very modular. Most of our middle-management has come out of luck. Social entrepreneurs need a lot of patience eventually, the right people will come to you. Entrepreneurs should look into rural India there is a lot of talent. They just need the opportunity.

AROUND 1.5 billion people, or
more than a fifth of the world's
population, have no access to
electricity, and a billion more
have only an unreliable and
intermittent supply. Of the
people without electricity, 85%
live in rural areas or on the
fringes of cities. Extending
energy grids into these areas is
expensive: the United Nations
estimates that an average of $35
billion-40 billion a year needs
to be invested until 2030 so everyone
on the planet can cook, heat and
light their premises, and have
energ y for productive uses such as
schooling. On current trends, however,
the number of “energy poor” people will
barely budge, and 16% of the world's
population will still have no electricity by
2030, according to the International
Energy Agency.
But why wait for top-down solutions?
There is no need to wait for politicians or
utilities to act. Local, bottom-up systems
may be more sustainable and produce
fewer carbon emissions than centralized
schemes. The developing world has an
opportunity to leapfrog the centralized
model, just as it leapfrogged fixed-line
telecoms and went straight to mobile
phones. Fortunately, lots of people are
doing just that.

bamboo furniture and cane products, as a part-

The eco-friendly route to success

Hotchandani expects the bamboo products and cane furniture to become a middle-class rage soon.

Gold furniture and products are sourced from tribals of Assam and have aroused interest of quite a few furniture dealers in Mumbai, Pune and Thane. Hotchandani feels that selling eco-friendly products is one way of giving back to Nature what we have received from it. Hotchandani got hooked to the idea two years ago, inspired by the pathbreaking success of Prashant Lingam's Bamboo House India. He travelled to Assam and lived with the tribal people for almost a month, understanding the business and establishing contacts. He studied all aspects of how these bamboo and cane products are made, the time each item takes, the sources of the raw material and the costs involved.

Equipped with this knowledge, he came back to Ulhasnagar and started Green Gold in October

is forwarded to Assam, from where the product is sent by train. It takes about 15 days to be delivered to the client but some products can take up to 40 days. For Hotchandani, this is a low margin and low volume game. The monthly sales are around

1 lakh, but the overheads and procurement costs

are very high, leaving only 10-15% on the table for Hotchandani. Going forward, he expects sales to pick up if bamboo products and cane furniture

becomes a middle-class rage. Still, Hotchandani is satisfied with the progress that his fledgling venture has made in the past one and a half years. He has seen the gloomy days when the economic slowdown took jobs away and put life out of gear for thousands of call centre employees like him. All that seems history now.

company as she turned 50. The business she started in over 5,200 square feet of basement, rented out at four bucks per sq ft, has spawned stores all over the country and recently completed 20 years with a kind of success that lives up to it's name: Landmark. “I always knew I wanted to work in a book shop or something to do with books and interacting with people,” says Hemu Ramaiah, CEO, Landmark. She learnt more about literature hanging out at the Taj Book Shop than from her course in Stella Maris College. "I started working the day I finished college in 1978. I was 20.” In the next 10 years, she started more concept book-stores in other hotels. But there was a complete disconnect between “the guy ordering for the distributor (the merchandiser) and what the customer wanted.” The generation back then was very well-read and wanted more. Hemu got her NRI-brother Nataraj Ramaiah to invest for retail. She then settled for a basement of an office building." We didn't have a front entry and even today, we don't even have a name-board. You just need to put the money into things that help the customer.”

Empowering customers: Books used to be sold from behind counters when Landmark opened in 1987. “If you wanted to see a coffee table book, the fellow will not even show it to you, he'll say: Want to buy? Otherwise: 'No, don't put your fingerprints on my book!' Hemu wanted to change this, encourage browsing, and empower the customer. Landmark signed a joint venture in Kolkata for an 18,000 sq ft store in 1999 and then, the Spencer's Plaza store came up across 40,000 sq ft in 2001. From day one, it was a phenomenal success and then they got Bangalore, which is the flagship store today.
