    Passport Camp Organized at BITS, Pilani

     
    A passport Seva Camp was organised by the Regional Passport Office, Jaipur at Birla Institute of Technology and Science,  Pilani during April 11 - 12, 2015.
     
    A total of 366 passports were granted in a period of two days for students and staff hailing from different parts of the country. This was possible due to the special interest taken by Mr. Vivek Jeph, RPO Jaipur towards the request sent by the university last month citing the problems faced by the students to undertake multiple trips to the nearest Passport Seva Kendra. This camp has greatly solved this problem for final year and pre-final year students who wish to pursue their higher studies abroad.

    APOGEE Curtain Raiser

    APOGEE (A Professional’s Oriented Gathering of Educational Experience), the annual international technical festival of BITS Pilani, Pilani campus, is known to be one of the biggest technical festivals in the country, and is often quoted as one of the three largest in Asia. Since its inception in 1983, the festival has only grown at a stellar pace to now hold a 9001:2008 ISO certification, and to be host to a plethora of activities, alongside the project discussions and paper presentations. 
     
    The 32nd edition of APOGEE will be declared open with an inauguration on the 25th of March, with Mrs. Aruna Roy, Indian social and political activist, as the Chief Guest. Recipient of the Ramon Magsaysay Award, and founder of the Mazdoor Kisaan Shakti Sangathana, she is one of the forerunners of the India against Corruption Movement. Raagamalika will perform after her address.
     
    Project and paper presentations will go on throughout the festival and this APOGEE will see over five hundred science and engineering students participating from all over the country, with around two fifty projects in the previous edition. The various categories include automation, communication and network systems, design appliances and economic modelling and finance. Paper presentation will encompass the pure sciences. 
     
    A large number of workshops on robotics, automobile engines, quadcopter, web development, cloud computing, animation, ethical hacking and financial markets will be professionally organised. The Think Again Conclave, which has seen speakers like Jimmy Wales, Dr. Walter Lewin, Dilip Chhabria, Michael Hogedal, Meera Sanyal and many other eminent professionals and academics, will bring to Pilani, four speakers this time - Divya Narendra, co-founder of Harvard Connect, the forerunner of Facebook; David J. Peterson, the linguist responsible for Dotkari and Valyrian languages in the raging TV series, Game of Thrones; Dr. Walter Bender, former director of MIT’s Media Lab and the founder President of Sugar Labs, who is at present working on the ‘One Laptop Per Child’ initiative; Bindeshwar Pathak, Indian sociologist and founder of Sulabh International, and recipient of the National Award Padma Bhushan.
     
    To add to the fun dimension of the technical festival, a number of demonstrations of interesting phenomena involving liquid Nitrogen, cymatics, Do Re Mi stairs and virtual air hockey are being set up. Roy Zaltsman, renowned psychological entertainer, is set to enthral the audience with his telekinesis, precognition and mentalism voodoo, as some may call it. Six quizzes are in the works - Brain of BITS tops the list, being the biggest general quiz the Institute can boast of and is accompanied by Media, Music, SciTech and India themed quizzes and of course, Overhead Transmission (OHT).
     
    Other fun events include an Adventure Zone, Treasure Hunts, Literary Events and games, well thought out and organised by the innumerable functional clubs on the BITS Pilani campus.
     
    This edition of the technical fest will see participation unparalleled in the past, with the knowledge base expanding manifold, wisdom being handed down over the generations by the connoisseurs, and experiences that will later be shared in college canteens and board booms for years to come.

    Oasis, the annual cultural festival of the Birla Institute of Technology and Science, Pilani is being organized from the 31st October to the 4th November. What started as an annual fun fete has come a long way in 43 years of its existence. With more than 4000 participants from 200 colleges across the country and a non-stop schedule of 96 hours, Oasis 2014, with the theme “That ‘90s Show” promises to be one of the biggest cultural festivals in India. 
     
    What makes Oasis unique is the fact that sponsorship, organization, planning, advertising & troubleshooting, every facet is handled by students, with clubs and departments taking up the mantle for making the fest a success.This year, the inauguration ceremony is scheduled to be held on 31st October which will be graced by the presence of Mr. Sriram Raghavan, a well-known Indian Film Director who has won critical acclaim for movies like Ek HasinaThi and Johnny Gaddar. His upcoming film is a crime thriller named 'Badlapur' starring Varun Dhawan, Nawazudding Siddiqui, Huma Quraishi, and Yami Gautam. The inauguration will also feature performances by the Dance Club, Mime Club and Music Club of BITS Pilani, based on the theme “That ‘90s show” which will surely evoke a sense of nostalgia amongst the participating student populace, who share an ardent romanticism for the decade. To add to this tribute, the Department of Art, Design and Publicity will be showcasing structures made and backdrops painted by its student members which will surely mesmerize all those present.
     
    The highlights of this Oasis would be events like Rocktaves, Tarang, Razzmatazz, Street Dance, Stage Play, FashP and the Oasis Debate. Over 85 events that cover broad categories like Music, Drama, Oratory, Art, Dance, Quizzing, etc. are being organized to cater to every talent that students have to offer. Rocktaves is the most celebrated semi-professional rock performance competition organized at the university level.

Razzmatazz offers college dance troupes a stage to compete under a variety of styles ranging from Bollywood to Contemporary to Hip Hop. For those who love theatre and the dexterity associated with drama, Stage Play is a chance to behold the audience with intricate acting while exhibiting true professionalism in direction. Debaters and orators could try their hand at Acuity – the Oasis Debate and BLAB. 
     
    Professional Shows are highly anticipated events with Farhan Akhtar gracing the stage last Oasis.

Mysore Nagaraj and Dr.Manjunath, famously known as the Mysore Brothers, are renowned violinists and have performed all over the world, notably at Royal Albert Hall, Chicago Pop Festival, Sydney Opera House, among many others.
