MESSAGE










“Wahe Guruji Ka Khalsa, Wahe Guruji Ki Fateh”



It gives me immense pleasure to pen a few words as prologue to our in-house magazine ‘Synergy’ ,

exclusively meant for churning out the latent writing talent which bears immense potentiality of
sharpening your communication skill as part of your overall personality development. I congratulate
the editor Mr. Karthik Krishnan, Assistant Prof. Dept of Chemistry and his entire team for bringing out

such a beautiful magazine.



Empowerment of students for their all-round development through education is our cherished motto.
Today education means much more than merely acquiring knowledge. It is acquisition of knowledge

and skills, building character and improving employability of our young talent, the future leadership. We

have inherited a strong foundation to march ahead and achieve the education objectives for a stronger
and brighter India. Measures initiated by the Guru Nanak Vidayak Society, steps taken by the college
administration, the willing contribution of the teaching and non-teaching staff and over whelming

response and enthusiastic participation of my dear students in the college activates in the recent past

all vouch for this. When all the constituents come together and work in unison, the expected results are
bound to flow.



I am proud of being the Principal of such a wonderful institution dedicated to the causes of better India.

Come on let’s give our best and make this institution a modern temple of learning through our diligence,
devotion and dedication.
Wishing you all the best…!

Introducing Our Team









elcome to Synergy16-17, a new yearly magazine about the life of the college at Guru Nanak College of Arts,
WScience and Commerce.



“Destiny is not a matter of chance; it is a matter of choice. It is not a thing to be waited for; it is a thing to be Ezekiel Moses Nishant Dhuriya
achieved.”
Designer Designer


College time is a time of great changes. Time which moulds a student fresh out of high school to a learned person who
readily accepts the challenges life throws at him. Guru Nanak College is one of those colleges which acknowledges
the fact that a student is an individual, a real person with feelings of self-respect, sensitivity, responsibility and
compassion and thus, recognizes, appreciates, applauds, and fosters the fine blend of sensibilities in a student.

Hence, Synergy is to be viewed as a launch pad for student’s creative urges to blossom naturally.


We, here at Guru Nanak College, not only strive to better ourselves, but to benefit the world around us, for that is a
true quality of a winner. Our lives, through the last semesters have taught us more than any book could ever have,

all thanks to the very supportive professors and Principal Dr. Vijay Dabholkar. Anip Mittal Kaustubh Potdar Syyed Musaddique
Content Writer Content Writer Content Writer
Each year, we, a team of writers, editors, photographers, designers and correspondents, not only perform the task
of generating creative articles from the student population, but also work extensively, with coffee in one hand,

and pen or mouse in another to write, edit, and design the magazine in a way that lets you enjoy every bit of the
magazine. The final publication reflects the enthusiasm and the willingness of students of Guru Nanak College
to showcase their creativity by coming up with some brilliantly written articles and mind boggling photographs.
The magazine also encompasses the diverse curricular and extra-curricular activities like seminars, lectures,

competitions, social initiatives and other events which took place in and around the college during the academic
year 2016-17.

SILVER LECTURE - DR. ANIL KAKODKAR


RELEASE OF SYNERGY 15-16


t was 3rd September 2016, an anxious day for every member of the Magazine Committee, as the much anticipated
and awaited college magazine ‘Synergy’ for the year 2015-2016 was about to be released. The fact that the magazine
Iwas going to get released at the hands of Padma Bhushan and Padma Vibhushan awardee Dr. Anil Kakodkar who had
come to our college as a guest speaker for the silver lecture series was an icing on the cake.
Dr. Anil Kakodkar is a nuclear scientist and mechanical engineer by profession. He was a chairman of Atomic Energy
Commission of India and Director of Bhabha Atomic Research Center, Trombay (1996-2000). For his achievements the
government of India awarded him with ‘Padma Shree’ in 1998, ‘Padma Bhushan’ in 1999 and second highest civilian
award ‘Padma Vibhushan’ in 2009.
Dr. Kakodkar by his calm and composed demeanor mesmerized everyone gathered with his vast knowledge. Throughout
his talk he pinpointed certain facts which are impeding India’s economic growth. He made distinctions with other
growing countries, suggested India’s frailties and at the same time gave remedies for improvement. He regarded human
resource as the paramount factor necessary for a nation’s progress. Underlining the growing importance of technological
developments in the 21st century, he warned for its judicious and prudent usage. He didn’t shy away from making a direct
correlation between technology and the great demon Bhasmasur if technology was used for wrong reasons.































He encouraged the young future of India to carry out research projects, especially group research projects pertaining
to the current problems of the society. He also stated the significance of growth of village economy for development of
nation. As 2/3rd of the nation’s population still resides in rural areas, he stressed upon the importance of devoted efforts
intended towards rural development. Restating the importance of research study, he urged students to carry out research
activities without having any fear of failure. He assured them that the knowledge gained through it will only help them
to sow the seeds for innovativeness in future. At the end everyone present was enthralled and in awe of the knowledge
and experience possessed by the great man.
On this occasion Dr. Anil Kakodkar felicitated Dr. Pushpinder G. Bhatia (Vice-Principal & S. F. C. Coordinator), Dr. Meetali
Das Gupta (Assoc. Prof.), S. Gurdeep Singh Rangrass (Assoc. Prof.) and Ms. Davinder Matta (Office Superintendent) for
completion of 25 years of service in the institution. He also felicitated Mr. Narayan Vaish (T. Y. B. M. S.) and Mr. Nisar
Shaikh (S. Y. B. A. F.) for their exemplary work in the“Chaka Chak G. T. B. Nagar” initiative of the college.

PRABHU GAUR GOPALDAS He has been a ray of hope for many people who have revived their lives after listening to his talks and gained valuable

insights which helped introspect themselves.
The presence of Prabhuji in our college premises in itself had brought about a feeling of positive vibe. His great
SILVER LECTURE 2016 -17 intellect marked with simplicity and practical analytical point of view about life had a lasting effect on the large number
of audience that had gathered in the auditorium. Through his humour and witty remarks synchronized with solemnity
he gave a few ideas about “Living a great life”-the theme of Prabhuji’s lecture. He opined ‘Success isn’t achieved by
doing big things, but rather by doing small things persistently. It’s the habits which ultimately determine how great or
successful one will become in life and therefore it is of
utmost importance to have the right habits to develop
a right attitude. Genrally our old habits are the ones
which drag us down and refrain us from moving forward,
but Swamiji said “Don’t give up!!! Habits will drag you
down but just don’t give up.” The last few words at the
twilight of his speech triggered the mass audience that
had gathered. His mantra had given the audience a hope
to come out of their mediocrity and look at life with a
broader vision. His hypothetical comment “I can see a
Hanuman present in each one of you” spoke volumes
about the faith and confidence he had on each one
present to achieve excellence in their respective fields.
Just as in Ramayana Jambavan reminded Hanuman
of his infinite power to fly across the ocean, he urged
everyone to awaken the inner Hanuman residing within each one of us and to find a Jambavan who will inspire to
reach higher echelons. His teachings will surely become guiding principles for each one present in the audience.
Om Shanti.. Shanti.. Shanti hi..


reatness is not determined by aptitude or achievements, but rather by one’s attitude towards life.”
The words of Prabhuji reverberated in our ears for a while even after his departure after delivering the
“GSilver Lecture 2017.
On 27th January 2017 Guru Nanak College was fortunate to have Prabhu Gaur Gopaldas in our campus as a speaker
of Silver Lecture Series .

tomorrow. Former President Bharat Ratna Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam, Former Governor of R. B. I. Mr. Raghuram Rajan,
Dr. Kiran Bedi etc. are few among many who have come and shared their valuable experience in the Silver Lecture
Series.
Prabhu Gaur Gopaldas - the guest of 7th
Lecture of the Silver Lecture Series is a lifestyle
counselor who has been associated with ISKON

PRABHU GAUR GOPALDAS He has been a ray of hope for many people who have revived their lives after listening to his talks and gained valuable

insights which helped introspect themselves.
The presence of Prabhuji in our college premises in itself had brought about a feeling of positive vibe. His great
SILVER LECTURE 2016 -17 intellect marked with simplicity and practical analytical point of view about life had a lasting effect on the large number
of audience that had gathered in the auditorium. Through his humour and witty remarks synchronized with solemnity
he gave a few ideas about “Living a great life”-the theme of Prabhuji’s lecture. He opined ‘Success isn’t achieved by
doing big things, but rather by doing small things persistently. It’s the habits which ultimately determine how great or
successful one will become in life and therefore it is of
utmost importance to have the right habits to develop
a right attitude. Genrally our old habits are the ones
which drag us down and refrain us from moving forward,
but Swamiji said “Don’t give up!!! Habits will drag you
down but just don’t give up.” The last few words at the
twilight of his speech triggered the mass audience that
had gathered. His mantra had given the audience a hope
to come out of their mediocrity and look at life with a
broader vision. His hypothetical comment “I can see a
Hanuman present in each one of you” spoke volumes
about the faith and confidence he had on each one
present to achieve excellence in their respective fields.
Just as in Ramayana Jambavan reminded Hanuman
of his infinite power to fly across the ocean, he urged
everyone to awaken the inner Hanuman residing within each one of us and to find a Jambavan who will inspire to
reach higher echelons. His teachings will surely become guiding principles for each one present in the audience.
Om Shanti.. Shanti.. Shanti hi..


reatness is not determined by aptitude or achievements, but rather by one’s attitude towards life.”
The words of Prabhuji reverberated in our ears for a while even after his departure after delivering the
“GSilver Lecture 2017.

A Mother's Love An Interview with God



I dreamt that I had an interview with God
From the moment a child is born, “So would you like to interview me?” God asked.

A mother's heart grows warm. “If you have the time,” I said.
God smiled,” My time is eternity.”
“Which question do you have in mind for me?” I asked,
A mother is blessed with a precious gift, “What surprises you must know about human beings?” God answered,

So treasured in her heart forever. “That they get bored with childhood.
That they rush to grow up and then long to be children again.
A mother's love is truly special, That they lose their health to make money
And then lose their money to resort their health.
Both unconditional and true. That by thinking anxiously about the future, they forget the present,
So they live neither in present nor future.
Ms. Jyoti M. Panigrahi That they live as if they will never die,
S. Y. B. Sc. Time may pass, children may grow, And die as though they had never lived.”
But a mother's heart will be engraved forever. God’s hand took mine and we were silent for a while.
And then I asked,” As a parent,
What are some of the life’s lessons you want your children to learn?”
God replied with a smile,
“To learn that it is not good to compare themselves with others.
To learn to love and let themselves be loved
To learn that a rich person is not the one who has the most, but the one who needs the least.
Oh! Maths To learn that it only takes a few seconds to open deep wounds of persons that of person we love,
Whereas, it takes long time to heal them.
Learn to forgive.
I asked Math ”Why are you so tough? To learn that there are people who love them dearly,
I am so rough. But they simply don’t know how to express their feelings.
You confuse me so much! To learn that two people can look at the same thing but see it differently.
I can’t get you as such, To learn that it is not enough to forgive others,
But to forgive themselves too”
I try to become hero “Thank you for your time,” I said humbly.
But my desire becomes zero” “Is there anything else you would like your children to know?”
God smiled and said…..
Mathematics replied, “Rest assured that I am always there for them….. always.”
“If you wish,
Do not compromise,
Cent percent is your goal,
Work hard with heart and soul.
Good practice is your timing Ms. Gayatri Keni
Will make your career shining!!!” S. Y. B. M. S.

A Mother's Love An Interview with God



I dreamt that I had an interview with God
From the moment a child is born, “So would you like to interview me?” God asked.

A mother's heart grows warm. “If you have the time,” I said.
God smiled,” My time is eternity.”
“Which question do you have in mind for me?” I asked,
A mother is blessed with a precious gift, “What surprises you must know about human beings?” God answered,

So treasured in her heart forever. “That they get bored with childhood.
That they rush to grow up and then long to be children again.
A mother's love is truly special, That they lose their health to make money
And then lose their money to resort their health.
Both unconditional and true. That by thinking anxiously about the future, they forget the present,
So they live neither in present nor future.
Ms. Jyoti M. Panigrahi That they live as if they will never die,
S. Y. B. Sc. Time may pass, children may grow, And die as though they had never lived.”
But a mother's heart will be engraved forever. God’s hand took mine and we were silent for a while.
And then I asked,” As a parent,
What are some of the life’s lessons you want your children to learn?”
God replied with a smile,
“To learn that it is not good to compare themselves with others.
To learn to love and let themselves be loved
To learn that a rich person is not the one who has the most, but the one who needs the least.
Oh! Maths To learn that it only takes a few seconds to open deep wounds of persons that of person we love,
Whereas, it takes long time to heal them.
Learn to forgive.
I asked Math ”Why are you so tough? To learn that there are people who love them dearly,
I am so rough. But they simply don’t know how to express their feelings.
You confuse me so much! To learn that two people can look at the same thing but see it differently.
I can’t get you as such, To learn that it is not enough to forgive others,
But to forgive themselves too”
I try to become hero “Thank you for your time,” I said humbly.
But my desire becomes zero” “Is there anything else you would like your children to know?”
God smiled and said…..

Those were the Best Days of My Life The Phone



Gone are the days of my childhood I am the phone,
Where I enjoyed my life as much as I could; Which everyone does own........!
People loved me the way as they should I connect many friends,
As if I were those times of robin hood. Also I come in different trends......!
I be with my owner in their home,
School days were full of joy and fun, And follow them whenever they roam.....!
My friends chased me and I used to run, When there is a fall in my charge,
Wishing those days to come again in my life, They recharge me in-charge.......!
those were the best days of my life. Though there is a rise in my bill,
People who throw me away are nil.....!
Success, failure, joys and sorrows No one calls me boring,
Its the step for a better tomorrow, Because they always remember me as loving......!
Live your life as a best as you can,
Make a new record or repeat the history again.


College days are much of laughter and fun
Mixture of fights, quarrels,love and emotion,
Those days will never come back in life,
Those were the best days of my life.
Sunita Mouriya
Enjoy every moment in life happily F. Y. B. Sc.
Tackle the problem if any, immediately,
Its the formula to live life conveniently,
Today’s moment will become tomorrow’s memory. Life = Race


Missing all those memorable moments Life is a Race
I spend in my life You have to Chase
those include some special memories of my life, Many Face
Wishing those days to come again in my life, Every Phase of Life is not the Same
Those were the best days of my life. Before the game Begins

Tight your shoes Lace
Don’t look Left or Right
Just focus on Finishing Line
Competitors are More
But the winner is ONE who RUN Faster
The Thirst of winning is running in my Blood vessels
If you want to Compete
Nirma Prajapat You can Try but later don’t Cry
S. Y. B. Sc. That I didn’t warned You

Boy, This is Life’s Race
Everyone is your Enemy
Don’t think that its a Friendly Game

Life Don’t Give Up!


Believe in yourself, If you’ve tried and have not won,
Don’t be afraid, Never stop for crying;
Do the hard work, All that’s great and good is done
Don’t worry about the grade. Just by patient trying.
If you want to succeed,
Always move ahead, Though young birds, in flying, fall,
Never look behind, Still their wings grow stronger;
Or you’ll fail instead. And the next time they can keep
Have self confidence think positive, Up a little longer.
You’ll have to be taught if you want to live,
Don’t be scared of problem, Though the sturdy oak has known
Take life as a game. Many a blast that bowed her,
Nothing is impossible She has risen again, and grown
Just use your brain, Loftier and prouder .
Once it is on track,
It is as fast as a train. If by easy work you beat,

Who the more will prize you?
Roshani Gupta Gaining victory from defeat,
S. Y. B. Sc. Ms. Jyoti M. Panigrahi That’s the test that tries you.
S. Y. B. Sc



Life is Precious



The gracefulness
of a butterfly,
How gentle,
and fragile they seem.
There is no frigate like a book

Gently fluttering,
on a calm summers day, There is no frigate like a book
Floating like, To take us lands away,
a dream. Nor any courser like a page
Of prancing poetry,
But sadly, This traverse may the poorest take
there time is over, Without oppress of toll;
Hardly before How frugal is the chariot
it’s begun. That bears a human soul!


So enjoy
your special moments,
Like a butterfly, Ms. Jyoti M. Panigrahi
In the sun.
Nirma Prajapati S. Y. B. Sc
S. Y. B. Sc.
