Citing his own humble beginnings in life, he spoke on the importance of law and education. He appealed to all students to abide by the social, country and the universal law and also following customs. A true visionary will always respect time, virtues, law and discipline. Never wrong in life and never refrain from the right path! He stressed that it is very difficult to break the cycle of wrong doings. A child must be physically fit through exercises for a fit mind lives in a fit body for stress of life will always be away!

He spoke of traits he inculcated while a child which brought him to this stature today. Yoga, good thoughts and actions, dedication and confidence in oneself is very important. A person must stay away from any wrong doings of life, be it personal or professional.

With a vision to make Patanjali brand a Lakh crore company, he urged the students-the future of tomorrow to think big, act big, free from vices of life. Though he has knowledge of different sciences of life, to further the research projects at Patanjali, this entire process will always need newer brains and newer ideas. A student alone can turn around the fortune and future of a country and that time has come for Indians to lead.

Baba Ramdev has spread the importance of yoga in our daily life and today he again reiterated its health benefits. Indians must be swadeshi in purchase and not contribute to the coffers of the foreign companies. New India cannot be made by politicians, corporate families but by new age India-The Students, the warriors of young India through the best education being imparted.

Baba Ramdev also planted a tree, for the future to be inspired by.

World Telecommunication and Information Society Day was organized on the Theme 2017: Big Data for Big Impact

Royal Global University organized ‘World Telecommunications and Information Society Day’ where the constant evolution of one of the most important factors of our lives: communication was discussed. The main goal of World Telecommunications Day (WTD) is to highlight the importance of communication and how information travels across the world. It also aims to increase awareness of how crucial communication is in our lives, and stimulate the development of technologies in the field.
World Telecommunication Day was introduced to celebrate the founding of the International Telecommunication Union, which was founded on 17 May 1865. It was instituted by and during the Conference in Malaga-Torremolinos in 1973. The main objective of the day is to raise global awareness of social changes brought about by the Internet and new technologies. It also aims to help reduce the digital divide (gap between Computer Literates and Computer Illiterates).
In November 2006, the ITU Conference in Antalya, Turkey decided to merge and celebrate both events on 17 May as World Telecommunication and Information Society Day. The updated Resolution invites members to celebrate the day annually by organizing appropriate national programmes with a view to:
Ø  Stimulate reflection and exchanges of ideas on the theme adopted by the Council.
Ø  Debate on the various aspects of the theme with all partners in society.
“Big-data” is similar to “Small-data”, but bigger.
Having data bigger consequently requires different approaches:
Ø  Techniques
Ø  Tools, and
Ø  Architectures

Big Data Analytics for what? to solve New problems and old problems in a better way.
Now the question arose, What made Big Data requirement? The answer was Increased Data Volume, Increased Computational Need, Increased Analytical Need, Lowered Barrier to Entry and Success, Innovative Techniques and Cost Effectiveness. The key computing resources were Processing capability, Memory, Storage and Network. The techniques towards Big Data are Massive Parallelism, Huge Data Volumes Storage, Data Distribution, High-Speed Networks, High-Performance Computing, Task and Thread Management, Data Mining and Analytics, Data Retrieval, Machine Learning and Data Visualization.
Now the Big question is if Techniques existed for years to decades, then why has the topic Big Data become hot now? The reasons are More data are now being collected and stored, Open source software/code and Commodity (affordable and easy to obtain) hardware
The participating faculty members enthused, asked questions and concluded on a positive note of enlightening all, especially the trying times following ‘Ransomware’.
The main objective of the day was to raise global awareness of societal changes brought about by the Internet and new technologies. It also aims to help reduce the digital divide.
