Unleash Mind

 

Unleash Mind is a program which unlock the mind's untapped (hidden) potential, through some of the ancient and proven scientific techniques and which is highly helpful for students and professionals in their career and life.

 

Albert Einstein once said, “We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them". This is the simplest indication of the various levels and frequencies of our mind. In our own life we all must have experienced that when we need a solution, we start thinking. When we start thinking we go deep into some other levels of mind. Sometimes 'that' state of mind is like a dream, bliss, or a peaceful state, where we also experience calmness, creativity, and a flow of thoughts.

 

Everything begins with some simple understanding of the fundamentals of life and some laws of this universe. The Unleash-Mind community will explore, understand, and apply the knowledge for excellence at all the aspects of life.

 

Roles:

  1. Research: Working/ researching on concepts related with metaphysics and the mystical aspects of life, sound vibrations, elements of water, electromagnetic properties of earth and so on. The impact of such things on human consciousness and mind. For example: https://www.researchgate.net/publication/319997601_A_Note_on_Possible_Healing_Effects_of_Conch_Shell_Frequencies

  2. Collaboration: Partnering and collaborating with world renowned organizations and institutions and work on the same lines. For example: https://greatergood.berkeley.edu/article/item/how_gratitude_can_transform_your_workplace and people like famous alternate therapists and researcher like, https://www.greggbraden.com/

  3. Execution: Every month there must be one program/ workshop on the theme of the community.

 

 

Speaker Tribe

 

Speaker Tribe is a community of speakers and leaders, impacting the world with the power of communication. Speaker Tribe empower students not only to speak confidently but also to understand and learn the science and the art of communication, by providing the basic tools, expert mentors and mentorship, and a platform to unleash the innate potential in every student and every human being. Other platforms at the Speaker Tribe are Ek-Kahani and Talkspiration.

 

Our plan is to open local, national and international chapters of the Speaker-Tribe community which will become an epitome and source for inspiration, confidence and network with the best communicators across the world.

 

Roles:

  1. Talkspiration: One “Talk Event” every month which must be highly inspirational, rather than educative. Stories of people from rags to riches or achieving something exceptional in life which stands in contrast, is apt for such live shows.

  2. Conversion into a Blog: The monthly talk will be converted into a digital document/ blog, which will be posted in the social media. This could be done in the model of YourStory.com

  3. Story Telling Competition: Just like Idea-Mic, every month there will be a story telling competition, which will culminate into semi finals and national annual finals for the participants.

 

 

Inventors’ Village

 

Inventors' Village is a community which encourages students to come up with workable solutions for any challenges or problem around the society. In a way it is like a MakerSpace, which is a university community centers established within a university campus. Combine that with hardware & software resources, community, and education for the purposes of enabling community members to design, prototype and create products that would not be possible to create with the resources available to individuals working alone.

 

They are a fairly new phenomenon but are beginning to produce outcomes with significant impacts. This community is all about inspiring students to innovate and explore.

 

Roles:

  1. Product Kraft: ProductKraft is a program solely designed for engineering products at the university campuses, inspiring innovation and encourage innovation. The core focus is to develop innovative solutions, for the existing problems in the society, using technology, which can be identified through different tools like Hackathon, Ideathon etc.The students experiences the entire life cycle of the product development, which starts from ideation and design thinking. The feasible ideas are validated by the industry experts on various parameters. Before the MVP is designed or built, the students are exposed and trained on various latest technologies and the various aspects of product development. The top products are taken for further incubation and exposed to the various support, mentorship and investments from the startup ecosystem and Hatchlab Research Center

  2. Research Clan: Research Clan aims at giving first-hand experience of solving an existing problem using logic and technology. At research clan students do not search out for a problem, instead they approach the corporate, organizations like ISRO, ICRASAT, research labs, Govt. and non-govt. bodies to find out the problems and challenges in the existing system to propose a solution which can be designed.The model might resemble to that of internship, yet the modus of operandi is different. At Research Clan, we work like a student organization with specific expertise, deliverables, timeline and certain work standards to deliver the project/ solution back to the organization or institution. We maintain the work ethics and professionalism in delivering the high quality solution, yet we do not charge any consulting fee from the clients (organizations/ institutions). 

  3. Inventor Square: Innovator Square is a place for pure innovation - something which is new to the world. Whether it is a society, community, state, nation, or anything in this universe which grows or expands has two common factors - innovation and balancing which is already in existence. Peter Drucker once said - "Innovate or Die". Even the very existence which we call nature is also evolving into something better and efficient. Innovation, by definition, is the introduction of something new. Without innovation, there isn’t anything new, and without anything new, there will be no progress. If an organization isn’t making any progress, it simply cannot stay relevant in the competitive market.

 

Socio Impacto

Socio-Impacto is all about impacting the society in a constructive and a meaningful manner.  Metaphorically this society is like our bodies. If one part of this body is ignored or does not function well, the entire body suffers.  A healthy society is a society where every social and economic unit functions well and the potential is optimally utilized.  We enable the less developed sections of the society with education, training and connecting them to the mainstream, and hence the tagline is - A mission to empower sustenance.

 

The vision of Socio Impacto is to create sustainable growth, through connecting the various dots in the society which starts from the communities below the poverty-line, the training initiatives by private and govt. bodies, the corporation and the last dot is the global market access. The vision is big, the work is challenging, yet the reward is life-changing and much meaningful which is worth working for a lifetime.

 

Roles:

  1. Identification of communities: This can be within the vicinity of the university or that of any other place. Communities of weavers, artisans, minority communities, women (into handlooms, paper plates, soap etc), children (at the orphanage engaged in some products like greetings cards, paintings), who so ever is engaged in some activities or need support to be engaged meaningfully, can be targeted. Also, help from existing NGOs can be taken to identify such communities.

  2. Need Identification: After interaction with the communities, the need must be identified and a formal report (word document) has to be prepared, along with the PPT, along with the pictures, video and other supporting documents.

  3. Implementation/ execution: This is the most important part of the process. Here we can have multiple approaches. Some of the followings are listed below. The approach could be a specific one or could be a mixture of

  • Take support from the existing NGOs for the solution, funds etc

  • Approach the corporate for their CSR funds or support

  • Find out MSME schemes for them and submit a report to the central govt for funding

  • Approach the local state govt. for training and support

  • International bodies like GIZ etc gives support and funding for medium and large projects.
