 friendship-day-greetings-and-wishes-2014--friendship day

A friend is a push when you have stopped,

A chat when u r lonely,

A guide when u r searching,

A smile when u r sad,

And a song when u r glad.

Happy Friendship Day….!!


A good friend is like a computer.

I ‘enter’ in your life, ‘

‘save’ you in my heart,

‘format’ your problems,

‘shift’ you to opportunities &

never ‘delete’ you from my memory!

Happy Friendship Day.!!


If u are a chocolate u are the sweetest,

If u are a Teddy Bear u are the most huggable,

If u are a Star u are the Brightest, 

And since u are my “FRIEND” u are the “BEST”!!

Happy Friendship Day by dear friend..!!

News about National Education Commission| Education News

University Grants Commission’s (UGC) Chairman Prof Ved Prakash asserted that the NDA Government shall establish a new panel ‘National Education Commission’, to revise the higher education curriculum across the country.

On the occasion of the inauguration of the academic session of the Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar University (BBAU), in Lucknow, Prof Prakash stated that the current higher education system is based on the recommendations of the first and last education commission that was formed in the year 1964.

Adding to this, he mentioned that since the UGC is more of a regulating body which is overburdened with the responsibilities, the Commission has outsourced the National Eligibility Test (NET) to the CBSE. However, they will provide the expertise while the CBSE will only conduct the exam.

As per Prof Ved Prakash, due to the massive expansion of higher education institutions there is shortage of faculty in the universities and colleges. Thus, the UGC is striving and making requisite efforts to combat the crisis. He even said that universities should start up specific courses related to pedagogy for masters’ level. “Though no state has come forward so far, we are waiting for the proposals. We will provide the tools and academic support,” said Prof Prakash, adding that multiple grading agencies, apart from NAAC, are needed to grade 673 universities and over 37,000 colleges spread across India.

DDA to Set Up Education Hub in Rohini |Education News

With the mad rush in almost all the Delhi University colleges during the peak admission season the Delhi Development Authority (DDA) has been urged to take into consideration a proposal to set up and education hub in Rohini. The DDA officials asserted that the hub will comprise colleges and institutions of higher education. The proposal is being assessed due to the ever-increasing demand for quality educational institutions i.e. both schools and colleges in city.

DDA’s Vice-Chairman, Balvinder Kaur said that they have 66 acres of land in Rohini that shall be looked upon to be developed into an education hub.

There has always been a need for creating more colleges and institutes in the country’s capital and this step will help the students’ organisations to have more options in hand. Another DDA official said that since there exists campuses in North and South Delhi, such campuses should also be set-up in East and West Delhi as well. Hence with the available land in Rohini, the officials are thinking of creating such a campus there.

The DDA is already exploring constructing 15 schools in the vicinity. It has 131 acres in Rohini Sector 40 and 41 which will be utilized for construction of flats while some portion of the land will be earmarked for construction of senior secondary schools.

Giving his inputs on this topic, ABVP state secretary, Saket Bahuguna said that they have maintained that there is a need to set up more colleges as for the last 16 years, no additional colleges have been opened. Adding to this, he said that the DU witnesses high cut-offs due to lack of seats. Thus, they have also suggested that morning colleges should offer programmes in evening shifts too.

NSUI’s spokesperson, Amrishranjan Pandey said that each year, several students who have scored 90% do not get admission in a college of their choice. In their manifesto for the Delhi University Students’ Union polls last year, they had demanded that new colleges be opened. The issue of lack of land for setting up of colleges had also come up. Following this, they had suggested that a huge plot in Dwarka be used to open colleges or set up hostels.
