Spintronics is a promising technology which aims to solve the major problems existing in today’s conventional electronic devices. Realistically, this technology has the ability to combine the main functions of the modern semiconductor microelectronics and magnetic storage devices in single chip.
Dr Pintu Das mentioned in his speech that optical Spintronics for optical data storage is the future because it can use much higher electro-magnetic spectrum frequencies with functions taking advantage of controlling the electrons for use in reading and writing of stored information while maintaining non-volatility and extending the shelf life beyond magnetic hard drives capabilities. And he concluded that interest in Spintronics arises, in part, from the looming problem of exhausting the fundamental physical limits of conventional electronics. However, complete reconstruction of industry is unlikely and Spintronics is a “variation” of current technology.

Topic: Relevance of Gandhian Nonviolence in the Third Millennium
For Mahatma Gandhi Ahimsa-non-violence was a Dharma, no matter if, for him, it was a plant of slow growth; and along with its activities, applicable in day-to-day practices, it was the means to achieve the goal. Satyagraha, pursuit of truth imbibed with Ahimsa was the weapon applied in political actions. He, as we know, largely succeeded in Ahimsa and Satyagraha, because he was brave, humble and free from hatred. All these three were, and are, fully within the scope of non-violence; in other words, they were, and are, themselves the best introduction of Ahimsa. And Mahatma Gandhi practiced them in the best possible manner both in his individual life and public life. Further, he loved everybody without any discrimination. Love is a value supplementary to Ahimsa.
Dr T. Ravichandran also spoke about the “principle of non-violence”. Non-violence is not a negative virtue, but the positive one of love and compassion. He writes, 'Ahimsa is one of the world's great principles which no power on earth can wipe out. Thousands like myself may die in trying to vindicate the ideal but ahimsa will never die.’

Topic: Blockchain Technology
Blockchain technology enables distributed public ledger that hold immutable data in a secure and encrypted way and ensure that transactions can never be altered. While Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are the most popular examples of Blockchain usage, this “distributed ledger technology” (DLT) is finding a broad range of uses. Data storage, financial transactions, real estate, asset management and many more uses are being explored.
Ms. R. Sangeetha explained the brief introduction of Blockchain technology and, she mentioned that, this technology provides potential to upend the way every industry manages its information and data and financial services. Blockchain technology offers new tools for authentication and authorization in the digital world that preclude the need for many centralized administrators. As a result, it enables the creation of new digital relationships. Despite the huge interest in adopting technology from established financial industry, the subtext behind much of what is said about it is “it would probably be better if it just quietly disappeared.” Finally, she concluded her talk with problems with the Blockchain technology.

Topic: Internet and Security
The Internet is a vast network that connects computers all over the world. People can share information and communicate from anywhere with an Internet connection. INTERNET stands for Interconnected Network - that is a network system that connects millions of web servers. Internet, a system architecture that has revolutionized communications and methods of commerce by allowing various computer networks around the world to interconnect. Sometimes referred to as a “network of networks,” the Internet emerged in the United States in the 1970s but did not become visible to the general public until the early 1990s. By 2020, approximately 4.5 billion people, or more than half of the world’s population, were estimated to have access to the Internet.
Dr. Umesh T J spoke about “INTERNET AND SECURITY”. While there is no network that is immune to attacks, a stable and an efficient network security system is essential to protect client data. A good network security system helps business reduce the risk of falling victim of data theft and sabotage. Network security helps protect your workstations from harmful spyware. Thus, with the use of the internet security, the computer's internet account and files from the computer are protected from any intrusion of any unknown users. Basically, it works well by protecting the computer through passwords, changing file permissions and backing up computer's data. With broadband security software you can protect your computer when browsing the web or downloading. To avoid viruses, as well as online threats - including hackers, spyware, spam, and identity theft - it's essential that you have a security package installed.

Name and details of the Resource Person: Dr. Sindhu Pandey, Research Associate Aryabhatta Research Institute of Observational Sciences (ARIES), Nainital.
Topic: Birth and Death of Stars
Astronomers believe that molecular clouds, dense clouds of gas located primarily in the spiral arms of galaxies are the birthplace of stars. Dense regions in the clouds collapse and form "proto stars". Initially, the gravitational energy of the collapsing star is the source of its energy. Once the star contracts enough that its central core can burn hydrogen to helium, it becomes a "main sequence" star. Stars are born in vast clouds of gas and dust. Stars spend most of their lives on the main sequence fusing hydrogen gas to helium gas. Stars eventually swell up to form a red giant star. Stars like the Sun end their lives as planetary nebulae and white dwarfs.
Dr. Sindhu Pandey spoke about ‘Life Cycle of Stars’. A star's life cycle is determined by its mass. A star's mass is determined by the amount of matter that is available in its nebula, the giant cloud of gas and dust from which it was born. ... Over time, the hydrogen gas in the nebula is pulled together by gravity and it begins to spin. The first stage in the birth of a star is called a protostar. As long as there is still inflowing material, the object is a protostar. When the core of a protostar has reached about 10 million K, pressure within is so great that nuclear fusion of hydrogen begins, and a star is born. Stars die because they exhaust their nuclear fuel. ... Once there is no fuel left, the star collapses and the outer layers explode as a 'supernova'. What's left over after a supernova explosion is a 'neutron star' – the collapsed core of the star – or, if there's sufficient mass, a black hole. The upper layers will expand and eject material that will collect around the dying star to form a Planetary Nebula.
Supernovae leave behind Neutron Stars or Black Holes “In a supernova, the star's core collapses and then explodes. In massive stars, a complex series of nuclear reactions leads to the production of iron in the core” – NASA.

Topic: Mental fitness
Physical fitness gets plenty of attention, and for good reason. A healthy body can prevent conditions such as heart disease and diabetes, and help you maintain independence as you age.
Mental fitness is just as important as physical fitness, and shouldn’t be neglected. Including mental dexterity exercises into your daily routine can help you reap the benefits of a sharper mind and a healthier body for years to come.
Mental fitness means keeping your brain and emotional health in tip-top shape. It doesn’t mean training for “brain Olympics” or acing an IQ test. It refers to a series of exercises that help you:
• slow down
• boost a flagging memory
Dr. Sreeraj spoke about “The importance of mental fitness”, “Mind-Body connection”, “Benefits of mental fitness”, “how to keep fit in this pandemic”, and “Being positive with oneself”. Mental fitness is important in maintaining your brain and your body healthy, especially as you age. There are many types of mental dexterity exercises, and you don’t need to go to the gym to do them. They include active ones, such as learning a new song or playing a game, as well as restful ones, such as relaxation, and visualization exercises. Schedule a mental fitness break into your calendar right next to your workout schedule. Your mind and your health are worth it.
“Mental health needs a great deal of attention. It’s the final taboo and it needs to be faced and dealt with.”
