“Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try”

Dr. Chiranjeev Kumar Dr. Chiranjeev Kumar

After the successful release of the first two editions of BufferedReader, the Editorial Board has come up with the third edition of the magazine. The class of 2015 had contributed to a great extent towards the first two editions and now the baton has been passed on to the class of 2016. I hope that you have enjoyed browsing through the previous editions. This magazine is a testament of the students’ will to take up interests apart from academics, allowing them to foster their all-round growth.

The current edition has a myriad of articles. The cover story provides the readers an insight into the Internet of Things. In today’s world, there are an increasing number of seemingly normal devices that are generally embedded with chips which help to transmit the given information to a server where it is processed. This revolutionary technology is creating opportunities for more direct integration between the physical world and computer-based systems, resulting in improved efficiency, accuracy and economic benefit. In addition to this article there are several others which give the reader an overview of various events conducted by the Department.

The main objective of the Department is to encourage each student to develop as an independent and creative thinker, ensuring their intellectual, ethical, and social development, so that they can cope up with the pressures and demands of today’s competitive market. To ensure that the magazine has a wider reach, the editorial board has come up with the online version on 21st April, 2015. You are most welcome to read and download the magazine from www.bufferedreader.org. I personally believe that this is a great initiative that has been undertaken by the students. The readers can view BufferedReader on their handheld devices as well.

I wish to convey my gratitude to my faculty colleagues and to my students whose immense contributions have helped in compiling the 3rd edition of BufferedReader. I applaud the contributors for their stimulated thoughts which they have expressed by the means of their articles.

The quality and content of BufferedReader will improve only after we receive honest and frank feedback from your end.

Well, till then, Happy Reading!
