The New Year 2012
promises to be even
more eventful than
2011 and it became
evident when we firs
t received the
information about
the hosting of 99 "
' Indian Science
Congress in the cam
pus from 3-7 Januar
y. With almost a
century old legacy,
Indian Science Cong
ress Association
holds its annual sessio
n in different parts of
the country. The
event provides the
scope for interaction
between great
scholars of science. Ev
ery year this event gro
ws a little bigger
with more members
joining it. This edi
tion of Science
Congress is not only
bigger in terms of par
ticipation, but also
in terms of topics to
be discussed in variou
s sections. Every
topic discussed and eve
ry lecture delivered by
the great men
of science would enr
ich the society at lar
ge. By successful
hosting of 99'" Ind
ian Science Congres
s, KilT's stature
increased still furthe
r. In no uncertain ter
ms it proved that
nothing is impossible
for KilT, since it tries
to do things with
sincerity, dedication
and strong convict
ion. The 7'"
Convocation on 6'" Jan
uary is one more impo
rtant milestone
in KilT's journey. Th
rough conferment of
Honoris Causa
D.Sc. on the distin
guished corporate lea
der, Mr. H. M.
Nerurkar, D.Litt. on
Dr. D. Y Patil and Dr
. Narendra Jadhav
and D.Law on Ms.
Pinky Anand, KilT
definitely feels
honoured. It is often sai
d that morning shows
the day and with
such a great beginn
ing of 2012, KilT
has many more
accomplishment to ach
ieve in the coming da
May the 2012 bringpeac
e andprosperity to all.
Come January, all roads will lead to KilT. Every year on this day, Indian Science Congress,
the greatest scientific extravaganza, takes one institution and city by storm, and in 2012 it
is KilT and Bhubaneswar. The 99th Indian Science Congress hosted by KilT in partnership
with NISER at KilT opens on 3rd January 2012 in the hands of Dr. Manmohan Singh,
Hon'ble Prime Minister of India. This 99th ISC is unique in many ways. The Children's
Science Congress, Women's Science Congress, Science Communicators' Meet, the Science
Film Festival, the Science Exhibition held simultaneously would fill the entire city with
sciential atmosphere. The holding of UNESCO-Kalinga Award celebration in KilT during the
99th Science Congress would definitely be icing on the cake.
There could not have been a better New Year gift to the state of Odisha in general and to KilT University in particular
than the 99'h Indian Science Congress. After a long gap of 35 years, this prestigious scientific event is being held in
KilT University from 3'd- 7'h January, 201 2 . KilT has passed the l itmus test to get the Ind ian Science Co n g ress in its campus
despite being so young. It is indeed a chal lenge for everyone in KilT because this editio n of Ind ian Science Cong ress is going to be
the biggest ever where 15000 delegates including several Nobel Lau reates w i l l be participat i n g . It is not the I nd ian Science Con g ress
alone which wil l happen in KilT d u ring this t i m e . The e ntire city of Bhubaneswar w i l l be fi l l ed with scie ntial atmosphere because of
several other events happening in the sideline of the 99'h Science Congress. The Children's Science Congress, Women's
Science Congress,
Science Communicators'
Science Film
Festival and Science Exhibition held
simultaneously are expected to be attended by at least 25000 people daily. The holding of UNESCO-Kalinga Award
celebration in KilT during the 99'h Science Congress would definitely be the icing on the cake. As customary it is, the
Pri m e Minister only inaugurates the I nd ian Science Cong ress but this year there has been an exception. The Pri m e Minister u n l i ke the
previous occasions has consented to be present on the inau g u ratio n and the valedictory function of the Science Cong ress. It is for
the first time, this Science Congress will have a segment exclusively for the women scientists under Women
Science Congress where scientists of national and international repute would come and speak on several
important issues.
I ncidenta l l y the them e of this year's Science Con g ress has been 'Science and Technology for I nclusive
I nnovation: Role of Women'.
R e v

Women's Science Congress will have Smt. Nirupama Rao,
First Women's
Science Congress:
Women in Science and
Science for Women
Date: 5-6 January 2012
Indian Ambassador to US as its inaugurator. In most of these
events the Union Minister of Science and Technology Sri
Vilasrao Deshmukh, Sri Ashwani Kumar, Union Minister
(State) Science & Technology, His Excellency the Governor
of Odisha, Sri M. C. Bhandare, the Chief Minister of Odisha,
Sri Naveen Patnaik, Union Minister HRD, Sri Kapil Sibal,
Chief Minister of Delhi Smt. Sheila Dikshit will be present,
besides scores of eminent scientists.The
Congress Associatio n (ISCA) started with a handful of members way
back in 1914 has g rown into the largest scientific associatio n of the
worl d .
KilT has been fortunate t o host t h e 99'h Science Cong ress just a year
before I SCA wou l d celebrate its Centenary year.
The academic
excel l e nce and the qual ity of KilT have been put to test because it is not
an easy task to have d oyens of I n d ian science in the camp u s . Though
KilT successfu l l y had organ ized mammoth conference earl i e r yet the
Science Con g ress is definitely is much bigger than the earl i e r ones.

Activities of KISS has attracted attention of leading national and international media. Eulogy and commendation for achievements of the

magazines and dailies like The Time, Wall Street Journal, South China Morning Post and Asia Post.
C h i l d ren of
Lesser God
India has the largest number of what it calls adivasi, already
million in the
census. Inhabiting a place beneath
even India's low-caste hordes, exposed to disease, mostly illiterate
and barely subsisting, adivasi make headlines when they join the
Naxal ites, a shadowy Maoist army that has recruited up to a quarter
of the forest populace to their slow-motion warfare. The poorest,
plucked from
64 indigenous
peoples that make up nearly a quarter
of the population of the eastern state of Odisha - its original name
is Kalinga - are trained from kindergarten to grad school, free of
charge in Kalinga Institute of Social Sciences. The man responsible
for all this is no stern Victorian educator. In the manner of all gurus, Achyuta Samanta is calm and beatific, dressed in blue jeans and
sandals. Born into a deprived, widowed family of eight, he won a scholarship to study chemistry, then began K i lT with
and KISS with 125 children in 1992. His new aim is to educate 200,000 adivasi by the end of this decade.
$100 in his pocket
South China Morning Post
December 6, 2011
(The South China Morning Post (SCMP), founded in 1903, is an English-language broadsheet
daily newspaper in Hong Kong. It is one of widely read newspapers in Asia.)
Opportunity is the key word at Samanta's Kalinga Institute of Social Sciences, an enormous free school for marginalised indigenous
children in India. With
students, the residential institute in Bhubaneswar, Odisha, is about to get a whole lot bigger. For the
tenacious Samanta, a kind of guru/Horatio Alger, no goal seems unattainable. Samanta recently announced that he would open
smaller branches of his institute in remote tribal areas. He aims to educate 200,000 children from indigenous tribes before the end of this
decade. The Kalinga Institute of Social Sciences started in 1993 with just 125 students. It now has a waiting list of 50,000 who want to take
advantage of the free board and classes. It caters to children from kindergarten to graduate school. The dormitories are packed, and the
food is basic.
But the classes seem
rigorous and
thoroughly up to date. The US embassy even sponsors an
English-readiness programme here. The students also
excel at sports. Inspired by Fijian and Maori rugby stars,
teachers started rugby lessons in the evenings, and the
students became enthusiastic players. It's no wonder
they made it to the world championship in Britain.
Archery is another strong suit, in part because the
children come from traditional hunting cultures. After
the students have been to school in the city, few return to
their villages to work. Alumni sometimes get jobs in
computing, nursing and engineering. It takes "just one
generation to be brought into the mainstream" for
things to change, says Samanta.

occupies an enviable position in the h i storiography of the
subcontinent. Owing to its geographical position, it is often considered as an
extended portion of North India or an annexure of South India. Due to its close
proximity to both North and South, Odisha possesses a composite culture in
which Odisha's peculia rities have been entwined with both North and South
Indian traits. Odisha is not only the repository of a great heritage and an Eden
of the east but a combination of both.
