Reiterating the government’s commitment of strengthening the private sector for the holistic development of the nation, Defence Minister Shri Rajnath Singh Ji on Monday said that an active and long-term public-private partnership is crucial to take the education & science sectors to a global level and make India a knowledge economy. He was speaking at the inauguration ceremony of Kalpana Chawla Centre for Research in Space Science & Technology (KCCRSST) at Chandigarh University, Gharuan, the first of its kind in North India.

The Union Minister also launched Chandigarh University’s Defence Scholarship Scheme, worth Rs 10 Crore, for the wards of Defence Personnel of the three services.

Addressing the gathering, Shri Singh hailed the establishment of the KCCRSST, and said that it is only through efforts like these that India can become a leader in future technologies. Likening the Research Centre with ‘pride of India’ Kalpana Chawla, the Defence Minister hoped that this research facility would touch new heights of success, similar to the remarkable achievements of the late India-born astronaut who brought universal recognition to her country of origin.
Established with the objective of training students in space science and satellite development and to meet future challenges in the area of space research, this state of the art space centre would be the Ground Control Station (GCS) for the Chandigarh University's Student Satellite (CUSAT), an in-house developed nano-satellite being designed by the students of Chandigarh University, and a Geo Spatial Centre for research, besides other important projects.
Chancellor of Chandigarh University, S. Satnam Singh Sandhu, senior vice-president Prof Himani Sood, eminent scientists, faculty and students were present during the inauguration ceremony.
The Defence Minister lauded the Chandigarh University for setting records of success in research & innovation, placements and global rankings in the last few years and described the achievements of the University as a symbol of the increasing participation of the private sector in the field of education.
“All these achievements of Chandigarh University are examples of the increasing importance of private sector in the education sector of our country. I believe that if the education, knowledge-science of our country has to reach the world level, and the country has to be made a 'knowledge economy', then the public and private sector of the country will have to work together, and in this direction we Moving forward fast,” he said in his address, after the inauguration.
Noting that space sector is deeply connected with our lives from national development to national security, Shri Singh said that the Government understands the potential of this space and is committed to take it to newer heights and give new direction to the country’s progress.
Remembering late India-born astronaut Kalpana Chawla, Shri Rajnath Singh described her as a symbol of women empowerment, and urged the people to motivate their daughters to go ahead & touch unimaginable heights, echoing the Government’s vision of increased participation of women in all sectors.
“It is extraordinary for a university to have its own space research centre and its own satellite. This is commendable feat and I am certain that more Indians like Aryabhatta, Vikram Sarabhai, Satish Dhawan and Kalpana Chawla will emerge from amongst you all if you eye different planets and constellations,” the Defence Minister told the students present on the occasion.
It may be mentioned here that CUSAT will be among the 75 student-built satellites to be launched into space on the eve of the 75th Independence Day in 2022. The Chandigarh University has joined the list of 13 institutes like Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kanpur, IIT Bombay and became the first university in North India to design and develop its own satellite. For the project, 75 students of the University have been working on the Chandigarh University Student Satellite Project under the guidance of eminent Indian scientists including Padma Shri Prof RM Vasagam, Padma Shri Dr Mylaswamy Annadurai, Padma Shri YS Rajan, Padma Bhushan Dr BN Suresh, Padma Shri Dr BN Dattaguru, V Mahadevan, Dr L V Muralikrishna Reddy, and Dr K Gopalakrishnan.
With the launch of CUSAT, Punjab will become the first border state in India to have its own satellite in space. The launch of the university's nanosatellite-CUSAT will prove to be an important step for the country, as it will collect data related to border intrusion detection, agriculture, weather forecasting, natural disaster forecasting, which will be helpful in research and study of various problems in these areas. In addition, the GCS will help develop satellite research facilities and launch satellites in countries that do not have developed satellite technology. The GCS under the KCCRSST will monitor majority of Low Earth Orbit (LEO) Satellites including CUSAT and being a member of SatNOGS project, will be monitoring more than 380 satellites with over 810 transmitters in more than 50 Countries. 
Speaking on the occasion, Chancellor of Chandigarh University, S. Satnam Singh Sandhu said that ever since our inception, the university has been striving to provide quality, innovative and experiential learning to its students and establishment of this centre is one of the steps in this direction.
“We have always been a pioneer in the field of Research and Development and this centre of excellence will further strengthen our position in aerospace technology. This state of the art centre, will not be limited to the students of Chandigarh University. We will soon be announcing short term courses for Satellite design and development,” he said.
“Through this centre, which has come up at the cost of Rs 3.50 Crore, Chandigarh University will help in developing satellite research facilities in 57 countries including Brazil, Egypt, Colombia, Turkey as well as train foreign students for satellite design and development,” S. Sandhu added.

Showing the way to fight unemployment and illiteracy

Not only education but giving skill training too

Ludhiana: 27 October 2021: (*Kartika Singh//Education Screen) ::

The year 1962 is remembered by the majority of Punjab for the war with China. That war claimed the lives of many young people. He turned off the lights of many houses but also alerted us to protect the honor, dignity and dignity of the country. Our country has started taking steps towards strengthening its military strength. The wounds of this war were not yet forgotten when the country was attacked by Pakistan in 1965. The pace of our peaceful development has been deeply hurt. Neighboring countries, such as the Brotherhood, have shed the blood of strangers. There was pain  and pain everyehere but the country's armies recorded a historic victory.

At the same time, the country's intellectuals felt that war was not the answer to any problem. War is an issue in itself. Better a poor horse than no horse at all. Sahir Ludhianvi Sahib wrote while giving Haluna:

Fatih kā Jashan ho ki haar kā sog; Zindagī mayyatoñ pe rotī hai 

Jañg to ḳhud hī ek masala hai; Jañg kyā masaloñ kā hal degī

This was also felt by the intellectuals of Punjab. Pain of the fronts dug in the houses and grounds. I saw that time of destruction. I saw the deaths of the brave soldiers. Looked at the darkness in the houses. He felt that something had to be done. Kiran Gupta, principal of the government-run Jawdi school, recalls old times and quotes from elders. When this school was built, Urdu was more prevalent. Those papers can still be seen. Among them the year of the beginning of this school is probably 1972 but in fact there is a lot of other evidence giving good news about the good start of this school which shows that this school was started in 1965. The war against illiteracy had begun in that war year.

Now that the evils of inflation, unemployment and blind communalism are gaining momentum and darkness is being felt everywhere, the school is once again showing the way. Taking advantage of modern thinking and science, the school has started motivating the students of the school to look for jobs and move towards skills. The boys and girls of this school continue to learn something or other that will not allow them to depend on anyone for their livelihood for the rest of their lives. Principal Kiran Gupta told the students in the morning prayer meeting that apart from acquiring skills and earning a living, there is no caste or gender discrimination. Boys can learn to sew and become good tailors and earn good money and girls can also learn to cook and become the chief chef of some big hotel. Now the girls are also running the engines of the trains. Trucks have also started operating. Government buses also drive in big cities. By becoming a conductor and cutting tickets in buses, it is obvious that the girls have also asserted their power. There is a lot of talent in girls who are killed by a large section of the society due to their ignorance. There should be no stinginess in giving opportunity to girls too. Girls are never inferior to boys. Parents are also more sensitive when it comes to caring. No religion teaches discrimination against girls and no law. If any section of the society does so, it is very important to strongly oppose it.

Principal Madam Kiran Gupta said that the school has also installed a regular system for rainwater harvesting and harvesting. Roof water is no longer used. Directly into the earth, it contributes to the daily rising of the groundwater table. Smokeless stoves run on wood. On which a mid day meal is made so that the children do not become deprived of food or nutrition.

Life Line for the development of Ludhiana and Punjab Minister Bharat Bhushan Ashu have given a lot of support for the progress of the school. Mrs. Mamta Ashu has also shown full activism for this purpose. Renovated the computer lab, which was very important. Water coolers and other equipment were also provided. The English Booster Club takes first place every week in Block Ludhiana. He has twice topped Ludhiana district. He has also secured several positions during the Teachers Festival. Four positions in the block and two in the district.

Also made a name for himself in national level competitions with NMMS. Achieved six positions in 2020. Also achieved a position in 2021. There were many more contests which will be discussed in a separate post soon. Built in 1965, most of Bildin's rooms had gadar earrings. A five-room lantern has been found between them. Six new rooms were found during 2020-21. A dining area was also created. A science lab was also built.

Under the present circumstances, the school has made great strides in supporting its staff and students. It can be said that we are no less than anyone. Also remembering Baba Najmi's verses:

Be-Himmate Ne Jihde Beh ke shikwa karan Mukaddaran Da;

Uggan wale ugg Painde ne Seena Paad Ke Patharan Da
