Students of the Sri Mandali Venkata Krishna Rao Fisheries Polytechnic College, Bhavadevarapalli designed two low-cost floating High-density Polyethylene (HDPE) cages, meant for cultivation of brackish water fish in rivers.

Of the total 10 students involved in the project, eight are girls. The cages were made of eucalyptus poles, thermocol sheets and empty plastic cans. The investment to develop a cage covering an area of 16 square feet is as low as Rs 50,000 compared to the iron cage of the same size costing Rs 2 lakh designed and developed by the Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute, Cochin, they said.

“Our cage capacity is five tonnes of fish, equivalent to a hectare in the pond”, final year student G. Rubeena told The Hindu . The final year students — N. Krishna Veni, P. Ramya Deepthi, S. Gayatri, M. Ramoji, Y. Vasanta, B. Susmitha, G.V. Hemalatha and boys — P. Pramod and K. Nagaraju — were part of the project that was encouraged by Nagayalanka-based farmer T. Raghu Sekhar.

In early February, the two cages were built. The cage floats on water with the support of thermocol sheets and empty plastic cans, poles tied in the shape of a square. One net is underwater and another net covers the top to prevent the fish from jumping out.

 

 


  • Students bring down cost of cage from Rs. 2 lakh to Rs. 50,000
  • Cultivation of Asian Seabass seed begins in the two cages

     

Kids dazzle in SIDS Sdesigns

Girls look like dolls walking straight out of showcase

There was loud music blaring out in the background and a select gathering eager to cheer models that were to sashay across the ramp.

The auditorium in hotel D.V. Manor reverberated with wild cheers at the first sight of the ‘tiny’ models covered in layers of frilly frocks taking to the dais. They were a set of young kids, all belonging to the 3-4 age group, walking the ramp to showcase garments designed by students pursuing P.G. diploma course in fashion designing and B. Sc Fashion Technology in Samana Institute for Design Studies (SIDS).

“Instead of waiting till the end of the course to showcase their works to the local public, we decided to do it after the first semester for an early exposure to the market,” said SIDS Managing Partner and CEO Samana Moosavi, who went on to explain: “We chose to focus on kids’ wear as there is no garments showroom exclusively for kids. In the absence of wide choice, the young ones are forced to rely on the limited designs available.”

Tiny tots of Delhi Public School (DPS) stepped into the shoes of models and showcased the rookie designers’ works with aplomb.

The girls, who outnumbered boys, looked like dolls walking straight out of showcases. Their heavily frilled frocks with floral strips and a hair band to match with a flower perched on one side made them cynosure of all eyes.

The doting parents sitting among the audience blew kisses as their children walked down the ramp in full public glare.

The entire premises turned peachy when girls emerged in peach-colour frocks and long gowns.

The clothes designed by the SIDS designers were all sold out at the venue itself. “This is the first time that the garments designed by SIDS students did not come back to the institute after showcasing them in the public. Most of the parents of kids who flaunted these clothes, bought them,” said Ms. Samana.

At the end of the show, Baby Tanmay was adudged as ‘Queen of Samana’, Ziya as first runner-up as ‘Style of Samana’ and Ruaina as second runner-up as ‘Style of Samana’.

 

Free educational websites designed


A virtual school uploaded with subject-based lessons, 1,008 short stories and 100 corporate skills, is now made available to the children of all age groups.

International Council for Educational Research and Training (INCERT) and AIMS designed an educational website that imparts online classes. Director of INCERT and AIMS Jaya Venugopal said:

“The objective is to eliminate the concept of tuitions where children can sit at home and access lessons at their own convenience. ”

The three websites – http://www.drjayasvirtualschool.in, www. nanamma.co and www. corporateskills.org aim to reach out to the children. The portal also provides e-library.
