Big Data Workshop 2016 by Srijan, Jadavpur University

In continuance with Srijan’s tradition to enable the student community to benefit from the latest trends in the employment market,a Big Data Analytics workshop was organised in association with HT India Labs.The workshop aimed to impart a fundamental yet hands-on understanding of Big Data & the challenges associated in working with it. The hype around Big Data has been a global affliction of late. In 2013, Harvard Business Review tagged ‘Data Scientist’ to be the ‘Sexiest Job of the 21 st Century’, while in 2016, Glassdoor has nominated ‘Data Scientist’ to be the ‘#1 Job in the 21 st Century’. And so, we at Srijan, consistent with our objective to bring the best and relevant topics into the students’ foray, thought it prudent to  jump onto the Big Data train and get a glimpse into the nuances of the Big Data and why it is the current frenzy amongst employers. The workshop which was spread over two days of eight hour sessions each saw the enthusiastic partici

SHAMEFUL!!! Dum Dum Park Bharat Chakra Club

Today me and my friends went to Dum Dum Park Bharat Chakra Club for pandal hopping. After visiting Tarun Dal and another Puja we went towards Bharat Chakra Club. As we had Vip Passes and also our Press Cards we went through the Vip Lane which was already filled up. The Vip Lane & the General Lane was side by side. We crossed the barricade as there was a small puddle which was created most probably by the rainfall in the morning. So we just crossed the barricade for avoiding the puddle. The General Lane was empty so we crossed and when we again crossed to the Vip Lane, a Volunteer named Joyjeet Das started to abuse us just for crossing the barricade and he started talking to my female friend with his fingers pointed towards her and in an abusive and disrespectful manner, when I told the person to put down his finger and lower down his voice he called in his other Co-Volunteers and started abusing us both. We tried to solve the problem by talking but they started to raise their voic

Goonj 2016 by XADAM (Xaverian Academy of Dance & Music)

XADAM (Xaverian Academy of Dance And Music) - the students’ wing of St Xavier's College Cultural Association, had geared up for an Inter College Cultural Fest this year which was held on the 25th of September and inaugurated by Reverend Fr. Dominic Savio. The highlight of this festival was the dance extravaganza "Season Of Love" to be put up by the host institute. This beautiful performance by the college students, who'd genuinely seemed to have worked hard for the past couple of weeks to put up such a spectacular show, was a resounding hit.  The dedication and hard work of each student was displayed on stage and was definitely awe-inspiring for the crowd. Several big colleges from the city took part in the event, with many innovative events being held like Tarana(Dance Competition), Nishaad(Band Competition), Dwita(Duet Dance Competition) and JAM(Just a Minute). The event was also highlighted by Panel Discussions & Celebrity Appearances.  The fest

This Time You Realize

                                                    This Time You Realize Y ou know sometimes you’re living a day of great fun, filled with food, booze and girls or boys, and it goes as fast as a roadrunner with you simultaneously wondering how it did and wishing there was more time. Other times you’re just living a life filled with despair, boredom, annoyances, basically misery and you wonder how it goes so slow as well as when will it end. You kind of wish for the weekend to come so you can cuddle with your bed instead of having to embrace the cheap tricks. Time is an entity that betrays you every time if you think about it and it’s kind of ironic when people tell you that you don’t give it too much value. If you think about it quite frankly, every decision we have made and are going to make has been the wrong one or is therefore going to be a wrong one. Time has affected it and has forever been quite harsh, we’ve just forever taken it lightly. You never get enough time to enjo

Though they had stopped the programme for a while but it started again. But at last around 8pm police ordered to end the programme but the scheduled time was from 5-10pm.  Our 4 th year seniors stated that its their last year and requested the Police Officials so that they permit to carry on the event ...but the police officials turned a deaf to their requests. At the end some of the local people mixed up with police officials and started beating the students with sticks and plastic pipes and everything which was available near them. When we disclosed the matter to our college authority they remained silent and
