Editorial... Voices- October 2007!

To the fearful, it is threatening because it means that things may get worse.
To the hopeful, it is encouraging because it means that things may get better.
To the confident, it is inspiring because the challenge exists to make things better.

We at Voices have strived to take on this challenge and make a few changes. This issue witnesses a new layout keeping the editorial page close at heart. The chance discovery of a blog led to another change- we welcome our new member! And await the arrival of many more. Voices launches its online version and still retains the print version for the conventional minds.
It has been an eventful two months. We got home the 20-20 World Cup Trophy and the country celebrated in unison; the empty tea-board was a testimony to the fervour the final match generated, notwithstanding the not so spirited anti-competitor slogans that rang in the air! Saluting the spirit of our national game and winning a penalty stroke, The Hockey Association screened the now cult Chak De to a packed Gymkhana. It was really all about change! And let us not forget, India recently won the Asia cup Hockey, and Nehru cup Football. Vishwanath Anand won the Chess World Championship. Bravo!! New vision, new thoughts, new actions!
This issue begins with a look at how life on campus can be made easy by just a click – humble efforts highlighted that looks at how automation can change the face of our daily living, if implemented by authorities. If it is technology on one side that makes us think, then the societal issues always tug at our heart. We rise from the slumber to ponder over what is it that drives an individual to the brink of hopelessness and is help really that far away? We also begin a section that is an ode to the IIScians who blog, and their posts find a place here. This time it is a clean up drive that made heads turn!
Gymkhana is a place of solace and their activities are now on highlighted in our new section, Gymkhana Corner.
So, brace yourself and read on!!

And Yes!! Voices is now online. http://www.iisc.ernet.in/voices
A dream has been realised...
