Chinese Delegates in IIT Kanpur

Hindi Chine bhai bhai”, the feelings associated with this slogan were once again revived here at IIT Kanpur, when Chinese delegates from Chinese embassy introduced themselves and greeted us with “Namaskar”. Recently, a group of three Chinese delegates visited IIT Kanpur and interacted with faculty and students of the institutes. It is considered as a forward step in strengthening the relations between two countries in technical and business areas. They had a small talk with the students and gave a presentation about the various economics policies of their country.

The comparisons between India and China in various fields were the main attraction of the talk. They also discussed in broad sense about their vision and various steps taken by their government to increase their GDP four times by 2020. The talk on the issues of inflation control, problem and challenges of the fourth largest economy of the world caught the attention of every one present in the auditorium. When it came to the cultural differences in both the countries, the auditorium filled with light environment and burst of laughter. ZEE news team was also there to cover the whole event.

At the end of the talk, a plethora of questions were asked and people were appreciated for showing a keen interest of their neighbour country. Some beautiful pictures of top Chinese universities were also shown in between. The talk concluded with the feelings that each country has its own core competency and it’s the right time to work in tandem with each other, learn from each other and cooperate each other in all the possible areas of development of both the countries. Below are some of the moments captured during the discussion.

An Introduction to the batch of 2019-21

“ It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change.

Mr. Praveen Tripathi, CEO of Magic 9 (Media and Analytic)

Mr Praveen Tripathi began the seminar by giving a brief introduction about the classification of households in India. Sir mentioned about the New Consumer Classification System (NCCS) in which there are 12 grades of classification varying from A1, A2, A3, B1, B2, C1, C2, D1, D2, D3, E1, E2, and E3. He contrasted it with the old classification system in which there were 8 grades only. The basic theme behind all this classification is the life score which is assigned to all the households. Life score is calculated based on the education of chief owner and consumer durable. And the discrimination is measured by the Larenz Curve and Gini coefficient. The major drawback of this system as mentioned by sir was that the consumer durable penetration changes faster than education or occupation level. “Inside every transaction there is a knowledge, you need to decode it.” With this quote sir gave a brief about television audience metrics in India which started with Doordarshan Audien
