Workshop on ‘Dealing with Relationships’

To equip students and faculty with interpersonal skills for navigating the complex world of relationships, a workshop was conducted by Mr Sanjeev Ailawadi, Commotion India, on the theme ‘Dealing with Relationships’ on 4 February 2016. Commotion India designs creative programmes to shape value systems of the youth. Mr Ailawadi, a social worker and community leader has more than thirty years of holistic counselling experience.



Through real life experiences and case studies, participants understood the association of personal, mutual and collective memories and how they affected a person’s perspective and reactions. Collective memories affect an individual’s  thinking and behaviour which keeps changing at various levels. In a group activity boys and girls shared their opinions and feelings about each other. Scientists believe that there is biological difference between the brain connections between men and women.

Overall, participants were helped to understand their own emotions, surrounding relationships and to identify key internal road-blocks for a healthy relationship. Mr Ailawadi said, “If you make good choices there will be strong relationships.” The workshop motivated the members to understand and learn practical tools to build better, stronger and enduring relationships.

The workshop was coordinated by Ms Nikita Kapoor, Psychologist and Counsellor of NCU, supported by Dr Shilpy Wadhwa and Ms Deepika Bishnoi (HR).

Delegates of top UK universities visit NCU to interact with Law students

The School of Law organized British Council’s ‘Law Mission’ programme at the University on 18 January 2016 to collaborate on higher studies, student and faculty exchange programmes. The Law Mission is a part of Subject Mission that British Council organizes every year to spread legal knowledge amongst students. In the era of the world becoming a global village, it is pertinent for the students to become aware about the trends and practices in the industry from an international perspective. Under the Law Mission delegates from UK’s leading universities including University of Sussex, Staffordshire University, Nottingham Trent University, University of Exeter and University of Northampton gave lectures to students on contemporary issues which are highly relevant for Law graduates and interacted with the students. Discussions focused on relevant topics of Medical Negligence; International Law; International Competition Law and Contracts law; International Constitutional Law.

NCU students got a chance of attending lectures by legal faculty oftop UK universities and receiving knowledge from eminent international professors. There was a deep appreciation by the students, and issues were discussed in an interactive manner.

NCU’s School of Law proposes to take the meeting forward through agreements with some of the Universities, as suggested by the eminent professors themselves, for student and faculty exchange programmes in a bid to align the Universities’ teaching-learning processes with best global practices.

THE NORTHCAP UNIVERSITY steps forward in reducing the carbon footprint

Increasing pollution and carbon footprint has become a serious concern of the present time. A major source of this is the emission of harmful gases from the vehicles. The government is taking different initiatives in this regard. Being one of the most reputed universities in the northern India, THE NORTHCAP UNIVERSITY understands its responsibilities and has contributed its efforts in reducing the carbon footprint.


A carbon footprint is the total amount of greenhouse gas emission caused by an organization, event, product or individual. To support the national cause of reducing the carbon footprint in the environment, the University has taken various initiatives in the past. It has constructed solar panels which help in reducing the consumption of electricity from conventional sources. The University has also replaced all incandescent lights by LED lights resulting in lesser heat generation and more efficient lighting. The University has facilities of sewage treatment plant, recycling of treated waste water for irrigation, rain water harvesting pits to recharge aquifers and ensure zero storm water discharge out of the campus and much more.

Recently the University has taken a major step in direction of contributing towards a green environment by proposing the ‘odd-even’ rules for vehicles coming to the University despite the fact that we are located in Haryana. It now permits vehicles inside the University campus based on their registration numbers. The odd number vehicles are permitted on the odd dates and the even number vehicles on even dates. The University faculty and staff have come forward and supported this green initiative. They have done so by pooling vehicles with the colleagues or using public transport facilities, helping control the emission of hazardous pollutants in the environment. The staff and faculty residing in the nearby vicinity are also being encouraged to use the vehicles as less as possible while commuting to the University.

The University faculty, students and staff understand their collective responsibility of contributing towards maintaining a sustainable environment and their obligations towards the society. THE NORTHCAP UNIVERSITY being one of the leading universities for Engineering, Management, Law and Sciences in the North India including NCR, is a pioneer in the region to take this step which can be a source of inspiration for others to follow.

‘YOU ARE NOT YOUR BRAIN!’ A TALK AT ONE OF THE BEST ENGINEERING COLLEGES IN HARYANA

A talk at one of the best engineering colleges in Haryana, THE NORTHCAP UNIVERSITY, on 23 November 2015, on a unique topic ‘You are not your brain’was delivered by Brother Neville Hodgkinson, former medical and science correspondent of several national newspapers in the UK, including The Sunday Times, Sunday Express, and Daily Mail. He is now a student and teacher for more than 20 years with the Brahma Kumar is World Spiritual University and Chairman of the ‘Janki Foundation for Spirituality’, a UK-based charity.




Br Neville’s interest in mind-body medicine led him to take up the practice of meditation and spiritual study in the early 1980s.  He said that science is supportive of spirituality and to support his statement he quoted several research studies. Br Neville observed that just because we cannot see the spiritual aspect of reality with our physical eyes, it does not mean it is not there. You cannot see radio waves, but you can listen to the radio. It is the same with our brains. We can experience spiritual vibrations internally, and send them out to the world. 

In the field of Neuroplasticity scientists have discovered that the brain changes with every thought and feeling. It is believed that the left side of the brain controls positive thoughts and the right side, negative thoughts. “You are what you think! Whatever you are -changes your brain and it keeps changing all the time, with every thought. So in effect, you are the master of your brain and you must nourish your brain with positive thoughts”, says Br Neville.

The energy of the human mind is one of the greatest but the least understood energy resource of the universe. When we understand and harness this energy, we possess the key to happiness and contentment.Discoveries in the fields of brain science, quantum physics, mathematics and biology are enabling us to explore consciousness in greater depths. Consciousness is a universal phenomenon which is guiding the brain to learn ways of the materialistic world. This theory is supported by near death experience and meditation of yogis and he quoted from the book ‘Consciousness Beyond Life – the science of the Near Death Experience’ by Dr Pim van Lommel.He said that we never lose consciousness, even when in coma or deep sleep.

Silence and meditation can be a wonderful tool to reconnect with one’s self. “Silence is when we allow the mind to be still, loving and peaceful. This helps us to develop awareness of the flow of the spiritual dimension and its unique strengths and powers.” He said that successful scientists have been able to strike a balance between public discussion followed by withdrawal and contemplation. 
The audience was deeply interested in Br Neville’s talk as was evident from the interactive session that followed. A practical meditation session was later conducted by Sister Urmil to give an opportunity of feeling the power of silence. NCU’s student Akanksha, a follower of the Brahma Kumar is, rendered a beautiful song to the accompaniment of music which mesmerized the audience.

HOW SWACHH CAMPAIGN IN AN ENGINEERING COLLEGE IS HELPING ACHIEVE EXCELLENCE

We clean, discard the redundant, put things in order and make our place clean, pleasing and swachh at Diwali. If places of learning keep their place in order and swachh every day they will be able to enhance the productivity not only of their students but thereby raise the productivity of their institution as a whole. One such institution is THE NORTHCAP UNIVERSITY (NCU) which recently organized a ‘swachh department drive’ or as the Japanese say5S system (seiri, seito, seiso, seiketsu, shitsuke).
It is a methodical way to organize the workplace and work practices so that there is continuous improvement of the working environment, leading to enhanced competency of each individual, department and thereby of the institution. The Japanese introduced the system in the 1970s and found it of enormous benefit. It came to India in the1980s, but we still have a long way to go.  The recent call of Swachh Bharat by the Government has certainly focussed the attention of the nation on this important aspect but see how the Japanese achieved it.
‘To change things we have to do things differently’
5S is the foundation for any improvement culture in the work area, whether it be the manufacturing industry or the education industry. It works at five levels.

Level I: Seiri or Sort: Identify and separate the needed from what is not needed. Discard what is not required and remove the clutter. This will save precious time later, when finding something.

Level II: Seiton or Simlify:Needed items stored according to frequency of use, systematically, ‘A place for everything and everything in place, clean and ready for use’. Simplifying arranges the workplace to ensure safety and efficiency. As tools and equipments etc. are limited in the work area and are project-based there is no wastage of time in finding the required material quickly.

Level III: Seiso or Shine: Work area, equipments, files, storage area etc. cleaned and labeled for visual control. Inspect and clean the work area and equipment daily, corrective and maintenance actions should be taken forthwith and performance level of items documented.

Level IV: Seiketsuor Standardize: Make routine check sheets and manuals that are standardized and easy to understand.

Level V:Shitsuke or Sustain: Everyone should be involved in the 5S methodology to prevent backsliding and to foster continuous improvement. This brings in self-discipline and a sense of responsibility and belongingness amongst all the individuals of the institution.

5S is outcome based and, therefore, measurable and what can be measured is achievable - leading to excellence in all teaching-learning processes in an engineering college. It infuses energy, builds team spirit, inculcates discipline, gives clarity of thought and satisfaction of a job well accomplished. When the team addresses problems, they improve the sustainability of 5S and, more importantly, they improve safety, morale, and productivity of all processes. When people see that they have eliminated wasteful practices, removed the clutter, simplified processes, and what they do makes a difference, their pride grows. As they say, “Successful people don’t do different things, but do things differently”. It makes life simple. This is perhaps the greatest benefit of 5S, as a first step in India – Swachh Bharat.

WHY ONE OF THE TOP PRIVATE UNIVERSITIES IN INDIA EMPOWERS THE POWERLESS

Social service or service to humanity is what differentiates us from animals.Our mission should be to help the vulnerable, powerless and the neglected and empower them to lead an independent and dignified life.In India, Government policy, legislative actions, schemes and provisions are in place to protect human rights and offer equal opportunities to all. But,unless it is a mass movement, not much change can be brought into the large sections of society that are under-privileged, marginalized and require help to join the mainstream and lead a productive life.

What does the University do?

Education is a powerful tool in fostering social change and creating a more hospitable and tolerant world.Colleges and universities have the potential to inculcate social values in the youth. The goal should be to have students go back to society and create value for themselves and others; students with a strong intention to make a difference in the lives of the less privileged and help them to live with dignity.
 
The social service club of THE NORTHCAP UNIVERSITY (NCU), one of the top private universities in India, considers it an essential part of education to help the sick, aged, deprived, disabled and the needy. It aims at the well-being of all Indians, irrespective of their religion, race, caste, creed or sex, so that they may lead a respectable life. It focuses on spreading happiness amongst different sections of society by regularly organizing activities such as:

• Blood donation camps on the University campusfor the benefit of the sick. 

• Slum Childrens’ Day through competitions (painting, singing, dancing etc.); movie shows; gifts; refreshments etc. 

• Invite young students of Government schools tosee aUniversity and get inspired topursue higher education. On one such occasion, on being asked what she wanted to do when she grew up,a girl replied, “Now I definitely want to become an engineer!”

• Student volunteers take forward the ‘Swachh Bharat’ campaign for a clean and healthy India and thereby a more productive India.
While most of us grumble about the lack of cleanliness and hygiene in our city or the absence of civic sense, how many of us take a lead to change the way things are? 

NCU’s Pro Chancellor, Professor PremVrat says, “As an educational institution of higher learning, we do not simply focus on academics but also in grooming responsible citizens for our country who possess good social and civic values. We are proud that our students not only recognize their duties as responsible citizens but put up compelling contribution by setting personal example.”

• Distribute clothes to the economically weaker sections through the Vastradaaninitiative.

• Provide basic amenities, medicines etc. to the old and the disabled inmates of the Old Age Home.Spend time with them, be empathetic listenersand make them feel wanted 

• Invite children from the orphanage and encourage them to participate in cultural programmes in the University. It’s a treat to see them happy and wanted!

Put your ego to one side and open yourself up to new experiences. It's worth thinking about the aged and the deprived. India has the largest youth population in the world. What if each one volunteers to give a little of their time every week to empower one needy person? NCU’smantra is ‘Empowered individuals make an empowered Nation’.

How the best Engineering College in India went eco friendly


How we use water, energy, dispose waste, promote efficient use of resources, can make an enormous difference to our development in a sustainable way. Educational institutions have a role to play both in sensitizing students in this regard and demonstrating the eco-friendly way. The future of the world lies in the hands of the youth and it is imperative for them to realize the importance of protecting the environment and of bringing science into their everyday life.

How can we help save our planet?

Colleges and universities are leaders of innovation in our society and have the potential to inculcate sustainable principles in the youth through their day-to-day deliberations.

THE NORTHCAP UNIVERSITY, one of the best Engineering colleges in India is committed to the green movement. Campus-wide initiatives at reducing, reusing and recycling are helping it achieve a green code of living:

• Energy Conservation: LED lighting, false ceilings to reduce heat load, as well as abundant natural light help make the building energy efficient.

• Use of renewable energy: Based on green audit, installation of 150 KW rooftop solar PV system with net metering facility - possibly the first and only university to install it.

• Water harvesting: Five rain water harvesting structures with pipes going to 300 feet below ground.

• Sewage management: Garbage handed over to MCG for proper disposal. No hazardous waste produced on campus. 100 KLD sewage treatment plant to ensure zero discharge to municipal sewer line with plans to use treated water for horticulture.

• Efforts for Carbon neutrality: Green foot print through 6 acres of green area out of 10 acre campus area.

• Plantations: Lush green gardens all around the campus. 14th consecutive year NCU a winner of HUDA garden competition in Gurgaon.

• E – waste management: Segregated and reused where relevant or  recycled to external vendors for proper disposal.

• Paper recycling: Reduced usage of paper by using electronic medium of communication. Tie up with vendors ensures recycling of newsprint.

• Social service: Gifting necessities to the needy.

• Programmes, conferences impart skills in sensitizing and mobilizing community participation.


NCU’smantra is ‘Live and let Live’ for a healthier tomorrow!

Small things make a big difference

Don’t forget the three R’s: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle! 

• Reduce usage:  Don’t waste – Save 

-Electricity: Substitute with something that doesn’t use that much energy like a fan for an AC, false ceilings to reduce heat load, building designs that allow natural light. 

-  Fuel: Wherever possible cycle, travel by public transport, use renewable sources of energy. 

- Water: Use as much as required. Repair drips and leaks.

• Reuse whatever you can.
-  Water for gardening
-  Paper for rough work
-  Give things you don’t want any more, to the needy
-  Use E-waste where relevant  

Recycle: Rain water harvesting is a great way to recharge the water table.


Composting and using organic manure instead of chemical fertilizers thereby reduces carbon footprint. 

Grow more plants and trees: Tree planting helps tackle climate change -  absorb carbon dioxide and are vital carbon sinks. The world’s forests store an estimated 300 billion tons of carbon, the equivalent of 40 times the world’s annual greenhouse gas emissions (source: Time, Nov,’09).
