Report on the counselling session by Mr. Malaya Khandelwal
The students of classes IX, X, XI and XII of Birla High School had to attend an interactive session with Mr. Malaya Khandelwal on 25 April 2017, at the Vidya Mandir Auditorium. Being a student of The Hindi High School, Mr. Khandelwal felt tremendously connected to the students of Birla High School . He also felt privileged to be able to give back to school, part of what he had received as a student. He had undergone a four year undergraduate programme in Mechanical Engineering at IIT Madras. He went on to pursue a Masters Degree in Mechanical Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University, USA. He was awarded a fellowship at the university. He was subsequently also awarded a grant from National Science Foundation, USA, to work on self deployable structures for space. He found his final call in teaching where the love and trust from his students was his greatest achievement. Mr. Khandelwal suggested students to look for excellence in whatever they do and focus on the future of human race. The youth should be made aware of the importance of logic. The initial exposure to it would be in the form of solving puzzles. It is very important that we are able to grasp our logical thinking. Students should get exposed to artificial learning as everything will get replaced except emotion and kindness. Mr. Khandelwal then introduced to his fellow companion Mr. Brijesh, a machine learning expert, working for American Express. He apprised the students about the objectives of machine learning. He also discussed on the extensive use of face book, and other social media. Students were made aware that technology was not evenly distributed and that not everyone has a gadget to use. Thus solving puzzles can be exposed to disorganised learning. An interactive session was held where students were asked to solve a few puzzles. The questions were storm raising and created a lot of interest among students. The objective of solving puzzles can be exposed to disorganised learning. Mr. Brijesh also spoke to students about new job opportunities.
