This is a brief report of the career guidance workshop held in the JNU campus from 26 to 28 [4 pm to 6 pm] August in Committee Room, room no. 225 of Administrative building, JNU campus.

These are photos and brief titbits of the event. I am not able to load the audios thanks to lack of time and a technical error. You can contact me if you want the audios of the workshop.

The  second chapter of the career guidance workshop in JNU had presentations about research fellowships, NGOs, Media opportunities by reputed people in the respective fields.

Every day of the workshop began with an introduction by Professor Anand Kumar and the inauguration of the meeting was done by some JNU official.

The second presentation on day 1 was by Anurupa and Meenal [JNU almuni] of the DAAD who also had brought a kit for JNU students. They refused to take any contribution money from JNU administration for their presentation as always! 🙂

  1. It was a wonderful experience visiting my alma mater and talking to young students of JNU. Prof Anand Kumar must be role model for many of us so is Prof R. Kumar. Good luck to all of you at JNU and hope to see you all soon…
    Binoy Shanker Prasad

    • Thank you Binoy sir for the comment.

  2. विकास जी,

    आपका ब्‍लॉग (समूह) देखा. काफी अच्‍छा है. उम्‍मीद है कि कभी जेएनयू का इतिहास लिखा जाएगा तो आपका ब्‍लॉग उसकी आधार सामग्री में शामिल होगा. आपके सभी ब्‍लॉग जितने तटस्‍थ होंगे, उनका महत्‍व उतना ही बढता जाएगा. अगर आप अपने ब्‍लॉग-समूह में हिन्‍दी में सामग्री डालेंगे तो हमारे विद्यार्थी भी लाभान्वित हो सकेंगे.

    • Thank you for the appreciation. I do write Hindi occasionally on my primary blog! The hindi poems on my blog get a lot of traffic!

      Will consider your suggestion. Thanks.

  3. Nice to see Prof. Binoy Shankar Prasad in a review after 21 years. He was a great friend and guide to me during my masters program at University of Missouri @ Columbia, USA. Great Guy !

    • It’s time to reconnect with S. Ramamoorthy. My new year’s resolution, sort of. Is there any way this note could be passed on to him? I don’t have his contact address.

      • I am sending you an email which has his email address and he has a facebook account too with that.

        • Thanks Vikas for your quick help..Happy New Year and Good luck..

          • Happy New Year to you too sir. Please see your ‘spam’ folder in Yahoo mail if you didn’t get the mail.

  4. It’s really very difficult in this full of activity life to listen news on TV, so I only use world wide web for that reason, and take the hottest news.
