Murders, Bonded Children Of Namakkal Schools

In Education on February 7, 2014 at 16:11

Parents do want their children to come up in Life,by getting them admitted  to what they trust to be the best schools.

Death of Student in School

Student Killed In Namkkal lSchool

Their objective is to make them secure a Top Rank.

While it is not advisable to go in only for Ranks as Life is much more than securing a Rank,it is highly regrettable and sad that the children who were admitted into what is beloved to the Best schools in terms of securing the Top Ranks in Tamil Nadu Examinations.

Schools located in Namakkal in Erode District,Tamil Have this distinction securing most of the Top Ranks in the Examinations, and are reported to be among the best in Coaching the students.

The Schools are equally notorious for exorbitant Fees.

The Tamil Government recommends a Maximum fee of Rs 9000 per annum for + 2 Course, these schools collect anything between Rs. 200,000 to 20,ooooo!

It may be worth remembering that a sum of rupees 40 Crore was seized by the Income Tax Department in Namakkal Schools in a single raid some time back, as unaccounted Money!

No followup action yet.

What is more worrying is the fact is the number of deaths/murders in these schools.

Four murders were reported in the first half of 2013-14 in the school premises and no action has been taken

As most of these schools are run with Political backing and Police protection even filing an FIR is not possible.

The Directorate of Education Schools Tamil Nadu State that they have control over Law and Order, Police say it is an Educational Institution and they can not take action.

These schools inform parents casually about the death and the scene of crime reveals the story touted by the school as  suicide is false.

There are instances where the students are murdered by rival students engaging thugs!

Some Institution have 23, 000 students!

These students are treated like bonded labor and the Campuses do not even have Phone booths.

Students are not allowed to possess Mobile Phones.

Nor are they allowed to contact their parents/Guardians.

Parents have to fill in application Form to meet t\their children and they may or not granted permission.

Even if permitted they are made to wait for inordinate time before they meet up with their children under the supervision of the school staff!

Parents are bullied and insulted.

Children are not allowed any extra curricular activity or is Sports encouraged.

They are made o study for at least 17 to 18 Hours a day including night study around 100 am!

The only plus point is these schools get top ranks.

But Loss of Lives, Personality?

Time the Government of Tamil Nadu took action.

Parents, Life is more precious than securing Ranks.

Readers may send in details about cases of ill-treatment, murders and any other relevant information.

I plan to move The Human Rights Forum and I need more inputs.

4000 Years Chinese Multiplication 5000 Years Indian Maths

In China, Education, India on January 11, 2014 at 09:49

It is known that two of the oldest civilizations are Indian and Chinese.

Both of them have contributed to the world in terms of Knowledge.

Orientals  are reticent in divulging their History because their attitude to Life and the conviction that what they know is nothing when compared to what is to be known.

Because of philosophical approach, Indian History is mired in allusions , the Chinese History is hidden!

Indians have contributed to Mathematics by inventing 0 and Infinity ,apart from mathematical calculations.

There is a special branch of Mathematics by using which on can calculate Mathematical problems in a very short time mentally.

There are aphorisms for Addition, Subtraction,Multiplication and Division.

I am providing the link towards the end of the Post.

The timeline of these is at least 5000 years.

Now a Chinese Table of Multiplication had been found, hidden among bamboo sticks.

This is at least 4000 years old!

Five years ago, Tsinghua University in Beijing received a donation of nearly 2,500 bamboo strips. Muddy, smelly and teeming with mould, the strips probably originated from the illegal excavation of a tomb, and the donor had purchased them at a Hong Kong market. Researchers at Tsinghua carbon-dated the materials to around 305 bc, during the Warring States period before the unification of China.

Each strip was about 7 to 12 millimetres wide and up to half a metre long, and had a vertical line of ancient Chinese calligraphy painted on it in black ink. Historians realized that the bamboo pieces constituted 65 ancient texts and recognized them to be among the most important artefacts from the period…

As in a modern multiplication table, the entries at the intersection of each row and column in the matrix provide the results of multiplying the corresponding numbers. The table can also help users to multiply any whole or half integer between 0.5 and 99.5. Numbers that are not directly represented, says Feng, first have to be converted into a series of additions. For instance, 22.5 × 35.5 can be broken up into (20 + 2 + 0.5) × (30 + 5 + 0.5). That gives 9 separate multiplications (20 × 30, 20 × 5, 20 × 0.5, 2 × 30, and so on), each of which can be read off the table. The final result can be obtained by adding up the answers. “It’s effectively an ancient calculator,” says Li.

The researchers suspect that officials used the multiplication table to calculate surface area of land, yields of crops and the amounts of taxes owed. “We can even use the matrix to do divisions and square roots,” says Feng. “But we can’t be sure that such complicated tasks were performed at the time.”

Vedic Mathematics.


To remember Multiplication Table, consider the sum of multiplicand and multiplier.

Remember the values for the sum < 10 (2 times table upto 8 x 2; 3 times table upto 7 x 3; 4 times table upto 6 x 4; 5 times table upto 5 x 5;).

We may call these basic Multiplication facts to be remembered.

Using these basic Multiplication facts, We arrive at the values for the sum > 10 (all other values of the multiplication Table) using simple technique from Vedic Mathematics.

The method we follow, here, is very simple to understand and very easy to follow.

The method is based on “Nikhilam” sutra of vedic mathematics.

The method will be clear from the following examples.

Example 1 :

Suppose, we have to find 9 x 6.

First we write one below the other.



Then we subtract the digits from 10 and write the values (10-9=1; 10-6=4) to the right of the digits with a ‘-’ sign in between.

9 – 1

6 – 4

The product has two parts. The first part is the cross difference (here it is 9 – 4 = 6 – 1 = 5).

The second part is the vertical product of the right digits (here it is 1 x 4 = 4).

We write the two parts separated by a slash.

9 – 1

6 – 4




So, 9 x 6 = 54.

Let us see one more example.


Example 2 :

Suppose, we have to find 8 x 7.

First we write one below the other.



Then we subtract the digits from 10 and write the values (10-8=2; 10-7=3) to the right of the digits with a ‘-’ sign in between.

8 – 2

7 – 3

The product has two parts. The first part is the cross difference (here it is 8 – 3 = 7 – 2 = 5).

The second part is the vertical product of the right digits (here it is 2 x 3 = 6).

We write the two parts seperated by a slash.

8 – 2

7 – 3




So, 8 x 7 = 56.

Video Learning And Adobe Certification Programmes.

In Education on December 9, 2013 at 12:39

With the advent of technology, Education has been transformed.


Gone are the days when one could study only in the School between 830 am and 4 pm with an hour Lunch interval.


With Economic prosperity and technological advancement, new Technologies have come in handy in Education.


In the early days, say about  50 years back, one has to be  a full-time student and the only source is the School.


And one did not have the concept of earning while learning.


Then came the evening colleges, correspondence Courses.


For Competitive examinations one did not have training or coaching facility.


It is applicable for technical course like AMIE and Skillern.


Now we do have Coaching centres and new technologies to aid one to prepare himself for the Course or examination.


With IT booming, the need for specialized programmes is on the rise.




Right from Programming to fields like Photoshop, we do have Coaching Centres to prepare one to get certified.


There are people in the field of IT who want to improve their skill sets and there are more who want to learn for better Prospects.


When people go in for Coaching many may not have the time to be a full-time student or has limited time to prepare for the Certification Course.


Instead of a regular teacher people rely on Video tutoring, managed by professional people.


How good are these ?


Let us take an example.


How good is video learning as a method of Adobe Certification Exam preparation?

How good is video learning as a method of Adobe Certification Exam preparation?

While books and similar resources might be the more traditional approach, do the video learning offerings that have been springing up in recent years have any merit? Here’s a closer look at the merits of video learning.

Visual And Auditory Learners

Video learning can be helpful for visual learners who learn best when their eyes have images to lock onto. It can also be good for those who like hearing their lessons rather than just reading them. Video learning is a viable option for anyone who learns well from this type of teaching format.

Almost As Good As Classes

You may not be able to ask questions, but aside from that, quality video learning resources can be almost as good as real classes. They can provide information in an effective way and make you set aside chunks of time to devote to learning. If you wish you could attend real classes in person but can’t for some reason, this is a nice alternative.

Always Check For Quality

As with any learning tool, you want to check up on the quality of video learning resources before you depend on them too heavily. Some have poor quality information, and others are just poor quality videos. Make sure that you seek out the best that video learning has to offer if you choose this learning path. Also, don’t think that you have to stick solely to video learning. Combining it with other quality resources can provide you a well-rounded education.

ADOBE Certification Preparation

In Education, IT on November 22, 2013 at 18:19

On of my ideas while starting this blog is to share what I know and find out information people may want to know and share.

As I was looking at the subjects I shared with I seem to have spent less time on Education.

I have only 89 posts under this heading.

I have shared information on some areas including the Courses available for the students in India, studying Std X and XII.

I was asked by a reader to share some information, keeping in view the job opportunities.

Not that people may not find it in the Web.

But I am planning to address this issue with a series of articles ,where the focus will be on  Course that would open the doors of employment, with out too much of stress.

I have been seeing the ADOBE in my PC quite often.

As I am an ignoramus on any thing related to Computers and IT, i asked my son who is a Software Professional.

He informed me that ADOBE is one that would help one to be creative and help in multimedia.

As a Job opportunity it is good.



Hence this post.

Adobe Systems, Inc. (/əˈdb/ ə-doh-bee), is an American multinational computer software company headquartered in San Jose, California, United States. The company has historically focused upon the creation of multimedia and creativity software products, with a more-recent foray towards rich Internet application software development….

ADOBE helps in making multimedia enable .

Adobe was founded in December 1982[2] by John Warnock and Charles Geschke, who established the company after leaving Xerox PARC in order to develop and sell the PostScript page description language. In 1985, Apple Computer licensed PostScript for use in its LaserWriter printers, which helped spark the desktop publishing revolution. The company name Adobe comes from Adobe Creek in Los Altos, California, which ran behind the houses of both of the company’s founders.[2] Adobe acquired its former competitor, Macromedia, in December 2005, which added newer software products and platforms such as ColdFusion, Dreamweaver, Flash and Flex to its product portfolio.

As of 2010, Adobe Systems has 9,117 employees,[2] about 40% of whom work in San Jose. Adobe also has major development operations inWaltham, Massachusetts; New York City, New York; Orlando, Florida; Minneapolis, Minnesota; Lehi, Utah; Seattle, Washington; San Francisco andSan Luis Obispo, California in the United States; Ottawa, Canada; Hamburg, Germany; Noida and Bangalore, India; Bucharest, Romania; Basel, Switzerland; and Beijing, China…

Product Range.

Desktop softwareAdobe Photoshop, Adobe InDesign, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Fireworks, Adobe Soundbooth, Adobe Acrobat and Adobe AuditionServer softwareAdobe ColdFusion, Adobe Content Server and Adobe LiveCycle Enterprise Suite, Adobe BlazeDSFormatsPortable Document Format (PDF), PDF’s predecessor PostScript, ActionScript, Shockwave Flash (SWF) and Flash Video (FLV)Web-hosted servicesAdobe Kuler, Photoshop Express, and Acrobat.comWeb design programsAdobe Dreamweaver, Adobe Contribute, Adobe Muse, Adobe Flash Builder, Adobe Flash Catalyst, Adobe Flash, and Adobe EdgeVideo editing and visual effectsAdobe Premiere Pro, Adobe After Effects, Adobe Prelude, and Adobe SpeedGradeeLearning softwareAdobe CaptivateOrganizational softwareAdobe Extension Manager and Adobe After EffectsWeb content management SoftwareAdobe Web Experience Management (WEM)Digital Advertising Optimization SoftwareAdobe Media Optimizer (AMO)(wiki)

ADOBE Prices are higher than its competitors.

But the product enjoys Major market share and has won awards for its Business practices a number of times and the product performs well, well reasonably.

ADOBE professionals have a good demand in the market.

How does one get certified ?

There are many organisations doing this.

ExamTrace offers  help in preparing for ADOBE Certification, by offering  tutorials and exam preparation services.

This site also offers service in other IT areas as well.
