Support To Society: With the objective of supporting the community we are in, a School at Kolar Gold Fields that requires our intervention was visited by Com. Arunan, Vineeth VS and Sathian in June 2022. This School has Pre-Primary, Primary and Secondary classes. The students are from poor backgrounds. They are the children of daily wagers of the area. The school is supported by the CPM for its operation. The number of teachers is less than the number of the classes/divisions. The salary for the teachers is very low and is not paid regularly. There is no support up to 7th standard from the government, and the school is managed with the meagre fees of Rs.200/ month received from students. Bangalore chapter started the support for the school in Nov-2022. Initially, we set up a library and sports equipment for the children. Major support provided on an ongoing basis is the salary for two teachers (12000/-), textbooks and notebooks for students during the start of the academic year, awards to students for sports and arts competitions, etc. Our team provides guidance on improving the quality of teaching as well. Also, with support from the US chapter, we are providing egg supplements to all primary school children. We have conducted three visits during the year to discuss the progress, conduct workshops and attend the award Ceremony.

The portal provides a single platform to pool all the job requirements known to Darsana members across the globe. Com. Krishnakumar inaugurated the job portal on 8th January 2022. It was well received initially, and our members have put up several job openings. Gradually, the use of the portal showed a downtrend.

Career Explorer Talk: An online expert panel discussion was conducted to guide engineering students in choosing their career paths after completing their Degrees. This was open to all Engineering students across Kerala. It was planned as a series of sessions to cover all the engineering branches. The first in this series, “Career Paths in IT”, was conducted on 22 Jan 2022. The Panelists were Com. Mukundan Annamalai, Com. ArunanThayyil and Com. Dinesh I. The other sessions planned in the series were put on hold as the student crowd's participation was not as high as expected. An analysis following the first session indicated that student communities, in general, are not giving priority to such webinars.

Com. Mukundan Annamalai conducted two talks with the students on the NSSCE campus. The students received these talks well.


The talks were: “Future of Information Technology” on 27th Oct 2021 and “A Typical Day in a Large IT Organization” on 26th Nov 2021
