The Royal Society is a self-governing Fellowship of many of the world’s most distinguished scientists drawn from all areas of science, engineering, and medicine. The Society recognises, promotes and supports excellence in science and to encourage the development and use of science for the benefit of humanity.
Professor Krishnaswamy VijayRaghavan, Director, National Centre for Biological Sciences at the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Bangalore has been elected to the Fellowship of the Royal Society, Britain’s premier science academy.
The citation describes VijayRaghavan as “an inspirational leader successfully promoting excellence in Indian biology.”
“He has worked to establish new institutions, drawing the best young scientists to India. An outstanding developmental geneticist, his contributions to understanding the cellular and molecular principles of adult muscle development in Drosophila is widely recognised. He has elegantly combined these studies with those on the development of the nervous system to study the control and development of movement,” states the Royal Society in its citation.
Persistent hostel problems and ongoing strikes and protests by hostel inmates against hostel reforms imposed by the newly appointed warden have forced the Bangalore University to take a tough stand. The university syndicate has decided to end the matter by handing over its 11 hostels to the state Department of Social Welfare. The wardens appointed by the varsity will be withdrawn and the social welfare department’s staff will soon take over.
Bangalore University is planning to adopt a grading system for internal assessments (IA). Students can now take a sigh of relief as this new grading system is going to replace the usual marking system. The grades introduced by the university – A,B, C, D, E and F – are not going to affect the performance of its students. One official of the university said, “In the existing system IA carries 10 marks. The allotment of marks is mainly based on a student’s classroom behaviour, attendance and general questions related to particular subject.” A senior faculty from KLE College stated, “There have been several cases where male teachers harassed female students, expecting favours from the latter to allot IA marks. With the grading system, no teacher can cheat students or harass them.”
