It will not only protect soldiers posted on the icy heights from the cold, but will also allow them to monitor enemy movement.

By Vivek Tripathi

A smart camp for soldiers has been developed by an inventor at the Atal Community Innovation Centre (ACIC) of the MIET Engineering College in Meerut, which will not only protect soldiers posted on the icy heights from the cold, but will also allow them to monitor enemy movement from up to 50 kilometres away.

This Chargeable Smart Army Camp was created by engineering student Shyam Chaurasia and has miniature heating plates.

Surprisingly, there is no need for solar power or electricity to heat them; instead, the troops may use a physical rotational charger to charge the heater plates with their own hands.

Similarly, the hi-tech sensors installed in it will detect enemy movement from 50 kilometres away and will inform soldiers in the camp, allowing them to respond quickly.

The smart camp features four human radio sensors that will assist the soldiers in relaying information about the oncoming enemy. These sensors, which look like land mines and are connected to the camp through radio frequency, are placed throughout the camp.

According to Chaurasia, enemies have assaulted the CRPF camps several times at night. In such attacks, there is always the danger of additional harm to life and property. "I got the notion after reading about such instances in the press."

With the cooperation of the college and the ACIC, Meerut, a prototype project for the camp was created.

According to Chaurasia, the ACIC-MIET Meerut provided cash to help plan the camp. This improved the project considerably more. A total of Rs 24,000 was spent on the project.

K'taka Hijab Row Triggers Debate.

By M.K. Ashoka

The issue of wearing a hijab (head covering worn in public by Muslim women) to the colleges along with the uniform has sparked a debate in Karnataka over religious practices impacting the education system in the state. The matter has also snowballed into a controversy on whether the hijab could be considered as part of the uniform. The ruling BJP is deliberating on whether to take a call on allowing hijab as part of the uniform of college students. State Education Minister B.C. Nagesh, while opposing the wearing of hijab to classrooms, has said that a decision would be taken on the issue soon by the government.

The experts as well as students are divided over the issue. Those who are in favour state that the dress code in classrooms should not indicate faith or religion as it creates barriers between students as well as teachers. Those who support the wearing of hijab say that hijab should be treated as a scarf. Hijab is black in colour and it can't be a religious symbol as Islam is identified with the green colour. The hijab should be treated as a symbol of chastity, they maintain.

The denial of permission to six girls in the Government Girls' Pre University College in the communally sensitive district of Udupi in the state has created a controversy. Nagesh dubbed it as a political move and questioned whether centres of learning should become religious centres. Meanwhile, the girl students have decided to continue their protest until they are allowed to attend classes wearing hijab.
