“This initiative is intended to cater to over two lakh students. We aim to provide quality crash course content at a cost of less than Rs 40 per registered student,” he said.

The Deputy CM said that coaching through GetCETgo, which now has a Google rating of 4.3, would be made available from the coming academic year and KEA will be entrusted with this responsibility.

He said that the GetCETgo, introduced by Karnataka in 2020 in association with Digilearn Private Ltd, is blended as a unique combination of technology and content.

“This initiative is backed by chapter synopsis, classwork, revision, homework, and mock tests… GetCETgo is developed into a structured ecosystem for the students to study and benefit from. With the focus being on providing a real-time test experience, there is a rigorous analytics system in place which displays the results and reflects the student’s position against the performance of other test-takers,” he said.

Narayana stated that this has the objective of increasing the number of students of Karnataka in IITs.

He claimed that the initiative comes with loads of support services such as login support, tech back-end support, doubt clarification, and 24/7 customer service too.

Launching this initiative, Chief Minister B.S. Yediyurappa said that the crash course, introduced last year, exclusively meant to provide coaching for KCET and NEET examinations, but this time around, the government decided to include crash courses to coach aspirants of JEE examinations as well.

“In the wake of the outbreak of Covid pandemic last year, the government felt the need to help several students who went off track with their examination preparation and access to academic content had become very limited. The GetCETgo initiative launched to help offset these challenges,” he said.

The CM maintained that this initiative would be more beneficial to students who belong to backward sections. (IANS/KB)

It enhances, motivates and boosts certain aspects of our personality in ways that may not come into notice. There have been several researches on how music affects human brain. Studies show it helps us in recovery and healing, and also, encouraging us to be better if exposed to the right kind and fit.

From kids to elderly, music as a commodity, can be consumed by all. It is the universal language that is spoken by each and every being, from animals to humans to plants, each respond to it in their own ways. Suffice to say, we are united by music and the effect it has over us. Plants, for example, grow better when exposed to good music. Many songs are being composed specifically to enhance and boost their growth. Same is the case for humans. For humans, the right kind of music can boost good health, physically as well as mentally.

Awareness is the key to heal.

As more and more people are acknowledging the importance of their mental well-being, the wave of awareness the acknowledgment has brought is unprecedented. It may not have paved a clear path towards complete healing but it certainly has shown the way. The awareness is the key to heal. Healing begins only after the problem is identified. Similar to physical illness, the identification of the problem area is the first step. Even in case of a minor wound, when we go to the hospital the nurse first locates the wound. They, then, ask how we got hurt and identify the nature of the wound. Only then, they clean, put ointment and wrap it up if it needs wrapping and protection from air and dust. Sometimes, that protection is not needed. The wound heals out in the open. Same goes when it comes to healing of a mental trauma or illness. Sometimes, we confine in professionals or our loved ones, in order to let it out and process it openly. Sometimes, the trauma reduces with time. In any way, being aware and vigilant is the way to go.

Being knowledgeable about life in general, opens many channels for you. Being knowledgeable about yourself, opens gates inside you that lead to spiritual and general awareness about the concept of self. And the inner awareness is not necessarily internal, it can be seen from the outside as well. When we have positive energy from within it radiates physically as well. Have you encountered someone who’s spiritually awakened and aware? Do they stand out in the crowd? There are prominent examples of people who have made their mark in history, there is Swami Vivekanada, his awakening has revolutionised generations, one live example we can witness is The Dalai Lama.
