Mythologically, Mahabharata is considered to be the greatest epic ever told or heard, and is widely accepted as one of the most outstanding literary works. What is in it, existing and what is not, does not. Mahabharata has been popularly interpreted on the lines of a socio-political drama and a war epic. We at DAKSH, this year, adopt this great Indian asset as our theme, and we believe this is not merely the story of a war, but that of the rise and fall of leaders, their machines, the various path-breaking theories and that of technology. Right from the birth of the heroes through a non-biological process, to their scientific and spiritual growth and the different forms of skills and technology that they acquire, to the inception and development of the nuclear weapons, Mahabharata has constantly exemplified that there are no barriers when it comes to realization of science and technology. Besides, on a broader perspective, Mahabharata narrates the events of the 'Dharma Yudh' or the quest for justice, which is has been an everlasting and all pervasive challenge since the dawn of time, more so in the day and age where development in technology might not necessarily translate to welfare of people. Whether it is weapons, cyber tools or international diplomacy for power, they all have a dark side.We at DAKSH, attempt to alleviate this problem by contributing our part to the insightful and fruitful use of technology and finding effective means to cut down misuse. Following lead, this year's edition of DAKSH aims at coming up with events that shall intrigue scientific minds to think a step ahead, to reach that pinnacle where impossible is nothing. And also, to bring out the hidden management gurus, on whose plans the world shall run. All this induced with a balanced sense of righteousness and trademark flavor of fun, DAKSH is all set to sweep you off your feet. Get ready to experience the epic.

Chakravyuha(Aqua Missile)

A highly sophisticated military formation used by Dronacharya during the Mahabharata against the Pandavas. The rotating concentric circles of soldiers were virtually impregnable. The only soul who has ever found his way out of this maze is Arjuna. But Abhimanyu penetrated the Chakravyuha and fought valiantly against the Kaurava Maharathis and died a hero's death. The Great War is recreated where the participants assume the role of Abhimanyu and must defeat the Kaurava Maharathis by striking them with powerful missiles! Let the Best and the Brave prevail!!

In the Mahabharata, the Kauravas build a palace made of wax and let Pandavas stay in it, so that they can set it ablaze. The Pandavas get to know about this and dig a secret tunnel from the palace to the forest and escape. Here, your robots shall be the Pandavas.

Key stone

In the Mahabharata, after they escape the burning house of wax, the Pandavas happen to build a magnificent palace full of illusions and traps. One key feature of that palace was that every part ?f the palace was connected by a magical bridge that could only be seen in mirrors and not directly. Too bad, the magic is quite difficult to achieve today. So we only ask of you to try and build a bridge, an Arch Bridge, to be precise. But remember, the most important part of it is the keystone as it holds together the entire structure.

Youth Parliament


•As an initiative to promote political awareness in SASTRA University, Daksh this year is hosting a Youth Parliament in our campus. The event will be simulating the procedure in the Rajya Sabha of the Indian Parliament, also known as the Council of States. It is hoped that participation in the event will stimulate an interest in the political process and structures in the Indian Parliament, an interest that is indispensible for young adults if they are to become responsible citizens in our democracy.

Youth Parliament Preparation


•All students from any discipline in SASTRA University are invited to participate.


•At the nearest PR desk.

Composition of the Parliament

In Parliament
The Rajya Sabha is also known as the Upper House of Parliament. Its composition is based on the population of the States of India, with more populous States receiving more seats in the House. The members are elected by the State Legislative Assemblies, who hold their position for 6 years. One third of the House retires every two years, so the Rajya Sabha is a permanent body.

Today, given the scenario of coalition politics, members in the Rajya Sabha are from various parties, with no one party enjoying a complete majority. Including 12 nominated members, the maximum strength of the Rajya Sabha is 250.

When they register students are invited to give their preference for State and Party. The strength of Parliament is limited to 244. Preference in allotment will be given to students who register first. The final allotment will be published on the 17th of February, after which the students will be aware of which constituency they are the Member of Parliament (MP) for, and in which party they are in.

Agenda for the Sitting

Agenda will be confirmed on the website on the 17th of February. MPs can expect issues of contemporary and current importance to be raised, such as:

•Foreign Direct Investment in Retail Sector.

•Protection of the dignity of women.


•As much as is practicable, the procedure shall resemble that of the Parliament in Delhi.

•MPs may submit their policies in advance to the organisers, who will then allot them time in the sitting of the House.

•The Chairman shall regulate the debates in Parliament, and may ask an MP who has held the floor for an excessive amount of time to cede the floor to another MP.

•MPs shall speak only when the Chairman indicates that it is their turn. When they have the floor, the MP may only be interrupted by the Chairman.

•The Chairman shall decide on whether or not a motion is to be put into vote, and shall decide if a motion has been passed or not.

•Detailed rules of procedure will be hosted in the Daksh website soon.

•It is recommended that students read the PDF document to acquaint themselves with the idea of a Youth Parliament

It is hoped that the event will witness enthusiastic and intelligent participation from the students of SASTRA University.
