Venkat Tanmay Kumar of Amaatra Academy participated and won the Amazon Web Services (AWS) launched in collaboration with the Ministry of Education-Innovative Cell (Govt of India), Atal Innovation Mission, NITI Aayog and Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE). This is a national level competition which tests the scientific temperament, computational and design thinking and coding skills in young minds.
He won the Young Builder’s Challenge 2021 for his innovative Intelligent Bus Lane Simulator App which featured in the Top 10 Projects nationwide in the Amazon Web Services (AWS). As many as ten schools across the country emerged as winners and were felicitated on 28th November 2021. Amaatra Academy was the proud winner from Karnataka.
Tanmay built an app to simulate an Intelligent Bus Lane, which only comes into being if there is a bus, ambulance or any other priority vehicle passing by.
When a bus or other priority vehicle approaches, the smart lane it switches colour and alerts motorists to clear the lane. The traffic temporarily slows down as it has lesser road space. Once the bus/priority vehicle passes, the lane switches back to a regular lane allowing other vehicles to utilise it, thereby restoring normal speed of traffic.
An observant student, Tanmay noticed that the demarcated bus lanes did not help in easing the traffic
blocks and rather added to the chaos. He developed the app as a solution to help in enabling prompt public transport and emergency vehicles while not slowing down regular traffic drastically, optimizing use of resources and saving time for everyone.
For his efforts the school won a virtual AI/ML lab for one year and an Amazon voucher of Rs.30,000/. Tanmay also received a certificate of appreciation in recognition of his innovative idea to address a real life problem.
It is indeed a proud moment for the nation that young minds are working towards finding solutions which will impact the future of the country. A diligent student, he has made the school, his parents and peers proud with this amazing accomplishment. His success will surely inspire his peers to participate in such competitions and be a stepping stone for many more successes to come his way.
Dr. M R Doreswamy Chancellor PES University and Founder President, PES extended hearty congratulations to Tanmay on his well deserved success.

Dr. M R Doreswamy speaking on the occasion of Gandhi Jayanthi at S-VYASA University said that the entire world is paying tribute on this day to the most celebrated son of India.
On this day one needs to introspect why only Gandhi is a Mahatma while there are many individuals rendering yeomen services to the country in many wonderful professions such as lawyers, doctors, teachers, engineers etc, His legacies of Truth and Non-violence have left a lasting imprint on the collective consciousness of human civilization.
He is a Mahatma because he got independence for the country using these twin ‘weapons’, not waging a war or with bloodshed. He was aware that violence begets violence and adopted a unique method of protest against foreign rule which was the essence of our great Indian culture. Use of peaceful non-cooperation (satyagraha), he stabilized the Independence movement for years and ultimately got independence to India.
His life was a message - a message of peace over power, of finding ways to reconcile our differences, and of living in harmony with respect and love even for our enemies. Gandhiji can be considered the most modern political thinker India has ever had. He shines like a luminous star in the galaxy of intellectuals, reformers and leaders.
Gandhi transformed the Indian National Congress party from “Class party to Mass party” i.e. inclusion of all sections of society in the party he added. He recalled that “Gandhiji was telling that means is as important as end”, He also said that Gandhi's leadership role was extremely complex. Knowing that violence only begets violence, he began practicing passive resistance, Satyagraha. His achievements were nothing less than miracles.
Mahatma Gandhi was an icon of simplicity in life style – dress, food and choosing a dress of the poorest Indian, which he even wore when he went to England for the Round Table Conference in 1931 on the invitation of Winston Churchill the then Prime Minister of UK. There many social experiments he conducted as part of the independence movement; two noteworthy are the Swadeshi Movement to encourage boycott of British goods march from Dandi and the famous salt. However today, it is sad that the country is steeped in corruption, countless scams, criminal charges, self-centric and selfishness of people representatives. There is an urgent need to rediscover Gandhian principles.
Prof. Doreswamy called upon all Universities to celebrate Jayantis in a meaningful way like what S-VYASA is doing today on the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti and join hands with the Government’s initiative of adopting Government Schools in the State. He called upon “S-VYASA” to sign MoU with the State Government for introducing YOGA in all government schools.
Dr. H R Nagendram the Chancellor of S-VYASA University thanked Dr. M R Doreswamy for having accepted the invitation and rendering a wonderful message, befitting the occasion.. He agreed to extend full support from S-VYASA University to Government initiatives. He recalled how YOGA being introduced to WORLD from “Then Narendra (i.e. Swami Vivekananda) to Now Narendra (i.e. our Hon’ble Prime Minister Sri Narendra Modi ji) and conceptualization of “International Yoga Day”.
Dr. B R Ramakrishna Vice-Chancellor, SVYASA University in his brief introduction of the Chief Guest Dr M R Doreswamy said that “Dr M R Doreswamy is real yogi who has contributed immensely towards Aatmanirbhar Bharat through his untiring service in the education sector. The virtues of Dama i.e Self Restraint, Dana i.e. Charity or giving and Daya i.e. Compassion are being practiced by Dr. MRD from the past five decades and in this sense he is a true yogi he added.
The current Corona Virus situation has prompted Universities to shutdown classes in the interest of safety of students.
The University in its bid to utilize the situation constructively is beaming classroom teaching live for students to access the same from their place of stay since Monday March 16, 2020.
The University put in place a special time table covering 8 teaching sessions in a day each of 40 minutes duration across all courses. The schedule is shared with students so that they are informed on the subject and the teacher teaching the subject. The recorded version of the class is also made available to the student by the end of the day. This helps students to have a relook at the content delivered for better understanding and also serves those students who would have missed the live session.
This initiative of the University has been well received by the students with over 80% of students accessing to live / recorded sessions of the classes conducted.
