STREE, an initiative of NSS IIT Delhi
DETECTIVE Case Study Competition
On the occasion of International Women’s Day (8th March, 2014), STREE, an initiative of NSS-IIT Delhi brings to you a one-of-its-kind competition that lets you go through the complex process of analysing a case of sexual harassment. The competition aims at sensitising the participants to the subtle issue of sexual harassment at workplace through a fun-filled detective case study game.
Did you know that according to the The Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace Act, 2013, every workplace is supposed to have a Sexual Harassment Complaints Committee to handle case of harassment. Moreover, the Committee is required to complete the inquiry within a time period of 90 days and send the report. Also, the employer or the District Officer are mandated to take action on the report within 60 days.
If these questions interest you, participate in the competition to explore this issue to the core.

Getting happiness through selfless service

This is an instance that I came across on NSS IIT Delhi facebook page. Shamelessly copying it, as-is.

What I’d been doing last week

Hi folks!

I was glad to hear that my blog has some regular followers, and they asked me what I’d been doing the past week, so here’s a summary.

  • I was trying to figure out what should be done regarding my project. ( Ethernet controlled thermal testing chamber ) Bought an oven, a compressor, and was trying to play with a beagleboard my professor gave.
  • And our mentorship team decided to have a new website, I hopped in. Tried Drupal locally for the first time, and with 4 hours of struggle, got abasic site with pretty stuff up and running. After a couple of demos, I was asked to deploy it live. We went ol, around three days back, and after two full night outs and a couple days work, We now have a fully functional site  at ( Its down for maintenance, atm. Should be back live in a week, after I add proper content. )
  • Had been teaching few class XII students maths. ( This is for NSS, in collab with Aarohan NGO )

Pretty much, thats the most of what I’d been busy with. And I must say, the website design thingy was very exciting, and I lost track of time doing that. Worked some 35 hours at a stretch,  taking gap only to go for Aarohan teaching, and I had to stop when my tummy made a ‘Hunger call’ and my eyes refused to stay open. Had a moderate dinner and slept a good 17 hours after that. 😛
