Lt Governor launches AICTE’s Personal & Institutional Happiness Index App -‘Your One Life-YOL’

Your One Life-YOL

Lieutenant Governor, Manoj Sinha today launched AICTE’s Personal & Institutional Happiness Index App – ‘YourOneLife-YOL’, at the Convention Center, Jammu.

The ‘YourOneLife’ is a “Made in India” app that will show the index of personal and institutional happiness and around 12000 Higher Educational Institutions and more than 50 lakh students will benefit from it.

Speaking on the occasion, the Lt Governor congratulated the educational institutions, students, Prof. Anil D. Sahasrbudhe, Chairman, AICTE and the founding team of Sh Yogesh Kochhar and Sh Anoop Bansal, who are associated with AICTE.

The Lt Governor noted that consistent technological interventions and fast connectivity have revolutionized almost every aspect of human life. Today, there is hardly any area where the digital revolution has not reached, he added.

“Technology is a great enabler. We need to bridge the digital divide and create a fine balance for online tools and value-based offline education”, observed the Lt Governor.

The Lt Governor emphasized the need for creating a system where Digital and Natural rivers do not compete but complement each other.

“As in the old days, the way civilization and markets developed on the banks of natural rivers, in the 21st century, we can see a complete civilization on the banks of the Digital River. All the technology companies and social media giants have become symbols of new civilization, power and mobility, he added.

Five years ago, no one could have imagined that all the public related services would be available sitting at home. Despite Covid, schools, universities, colleges were running with the help of software, the Lt Governor said.

The Lt Governor observed that new Technology has created conveniences but it depends on how the user uses it. “More power has come in our hands. And it is very important to think how the young generation uses this power”, he asserted.

As all the higher educational institutions belonging to All India Council for Technical Education are preparing themselves for the post-covid world, both externally and internally, the launch of ‘YourOneLife’ app is a significant step towards a stress-free campus and a stress-free student in this transitory period, the Lt Governor observed.

The Lt Governor also urged All India Council for Technical Education to consider institutionalizing the rankings of Happiest Colleges in the country, as it is done in America where 25 top performers are selected from different states.

“There is an ancient saying that happiness is the real wealth and if you are happy on campus then your performance will increase tremendously”, said the Lt Governor.

The Lt Governor expressed gratitude to the Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi for laying special emphasis on maintaining an equal balance between technology and moral values in the New Education Policy and working tirelessly to make Yoga and Fitness an integral part of our lives.

Under his guidance, the reforms are being made in the education sector with a dedicated focus on training students in the technology of Industry 4.0 through Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, BlockChain, Big Data Analysis, 3D, Virtual Reality, Quality and Ethical Values Education, added the Lt Governor.

“An important thing has been recommended in the new education policy is that students should be educated according to their interest. Focus has been laid to inculcate the balance required in studies and professional life in the daily routine of all students and professionals”, he added.

The Lt Governor said that the initiatives like ‘Your One Life App’ and New Education Policy is a combination of both digital and natural rivers which will emphasize on the holistic well being of all the students.

Human capital is the biggest asset in the knowledge economy today. We must utilize our human capital for the progress of the country, the Lt Governor noted.

The Lt Governor thanked Prof Phoebe Koundouri from the University of Athens who is also the Co-Chair of the United Nations Sustainable Development Network, Europe for conveying her greetings and profound message and acknowledging the launch of the happiness app from Jammu and Kashmir.

He hoped that her support will be an inspiration for the “YourOneLife-YOL” team, motivating them to bring real joy to the lives of the students.

Prof. Anil D. Sahasrabudhe, Chairman, AICTE, speaking on the occasion highlighted the key features and benefits of the happiness app. He said, “Your One Life is a tool that collates, calibrates and celebrates Happiness.

He also threw light on the efforts of AICTE in improving technical education in various educational institutions across the country through capacity building of teachers, student interaction programs besides promoting universal human values.

Speaking on the occasion, the founder of the app, Sh Yogesh Kochhar said, “This app will redefine ‘USERS’ and ‘USAGE’ and will show to the user in a fascinating manner, their own ‘MINDMAP’ and ‘MINDSHARE’. It maps and manages the user’s stress and happiness levels. We will be building a unique blockchain with all the users and institutions as our ‘partners’ and not mere ‘users’, he added.

Dr. Anshu Kataria, Chairman, Aryans Group of Colleges, Chandigarh & President, Federation of Self Financing Technical Institutions (FSFTI), besides a large number of students and people from different walks of life were present during the launch of the App.

Dr Jitendra hosts lunch for J&K Republic Day Tableau team

Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) Science & Technology; Minister of State (Independent Charge) Earth Sciences; MoS PMO, Personnel, Public Grievances, Pensions, Atomic Energy and Space, Dr Jitendra Singh hosted a lunch for the Jammu & Kashmir Tableau team members who had performed in the Republic Day celebrations at Rajpath in the national capital.
 
The team of artists, along with choreographers and musicians, have also been given an appointment to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday.
 
The members of the team expressed their overwhelming joy at the support and encouragement offered by Dr Jitendra Singh and also the hospitality was given by him. They said, this was the first-of-its-kind experience they had gone through and they were absolutely excited about it.
 
Pertinent to mention that, unlike on several earlier occasions, this was a rare Republic Day function at Rajpath, New Delhi in which the Jammu & Kashmir Tableau was primarily dominated by culture and art of the Jammu region and the face of the Tableau displayed Mata Vaishno Devi Bhawan along with other monumental projects like world’s highest Rail Bridge in Reasi and institutions like AIIMS, IIT and IIM, which have come up in the region during the recent years under the Modi Government. The background music and lyrics were also based on Jammu’s popular folk songs, “Sadha-e-Jammu”, “Sadhi Bakhri Pehchan”.
 
Under Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Dr Jitendra Singh said, in the last nearly eight years, a conscious effort has been made to provide equitable development and equitable attention to every region of Jammu & Kashmir. This has ignited confidence and self-esteem in every section of society and every region, he said.
 
Complimenting the members of the team for their distinguished performance, Dr Jitendra Singh said, he would like the people back home to understand the amount of effort, hard work and focussed preparation for several months, which had been put in for this performance. He also appreciated the perseverance and difficult competitive trial through which the team members had gone through forgetting their Tableau included in the Republic Day programme at the national level.
 
Dr Jitendra Singh said, very few people are aware that entry of any State or UT Tableau in a Republic Day programme at the national level has to go through different stages of competition and trial, and many States and UTs get excluded in the process and lose the opportunity to be included in the Republic Day programme. For this, he also complimented the hard work put in by the officials of the Department of Culture and consistent support rendered to them by the freelance groups engaged by them.
 
Dr Jitendra Singh had a detailed interaction with each of the members of the team individually and said they were the Cultural Ambassadors of the region. He assured each one of them of every possible support for the upgradation of their skill and performance.
