Recent Updates - July 2009 !

Point10 Solutions Team members have been going through a lot of activities trying to get everything together in one place and keep the vision on track. Long nights, email follow ups, phone calls, working on articles and more importantly trying to reach people and thus promote Point10 requires a lot of pain, dedication and perseverance, and of-course patience to see the fruits of such a hard work ripen and pay off.

Well to update the avid followers of Point10 following are two of the most recent positive updates that we have received and would like to share them with the community:

(A) FYSE Requesting Nomination of Point10Solutions
FYSE, which stands for, The Foundation for Youth Social Entrepreneurship, is into the activity of identifying, motivating and pursuing young entrepreneurs in the Asia-Pacific division thus nurturing them and their ideas for the future.

FYSE is organizing the Asia Pacific Future 100 Project (Click Here for Details), and has requested Point10Solutions to file for their nomination due to our group's positive social responsibility type portals. Also as Point10 could fall under the young entreprenurial organization, it makes us eligible to participate in this project of FYSE.

(B) NRAI (News Online) Collaboration with Point10 Team
News online, a bilingual news portal, has shown their interest to setup a team consisting of members from the Point10 group and their own NRAI group to cover certain activities in Gujarat. This comes as a great boost for all the students who are a part of Point10 and have their eyes set in the domains of Journalism, Mass Communication Management and Technology.

These kind of contributions would serve as a backbone in making the Education10Project of Point10 a reality and to take it forward. This collaboration would take place between Point10, NRAI and Radiance Media, and would serve as a great platform to promote Point10 and in a way help all those who professionally would be involved with different members of these groups in setting up their base in Gujarat. Not only people involved in this activity would get a chance to tone up their journalism skills, but they would also get a chance to interview the Chief Minister of Gujarat Narendra Modi.

As always, Point10Solutions Team has been working round the clock in realizing their dream and shaping it to reality.
We look forward to your conitnuing support and the team is thankful to all those who have responded with their valuable suggestions and comments.

About Point10 Solutions - The Dream !

The world today thrives on education, and with no guarantees in life or for the current economies, knowledge is surely bound to take an individual to higher peaks and greener pastures in some way or the other, down the road. Right from day one when a baby is born, he or she has been churning different aspects of learning and educating their own mind.

A child, just as they grow physically, needs to flourish mentally too. A brain termed as the most amazing creation ever made by God, observes, learns and digests infinite things on a daily basis. If we have been blessed with such facilities to help grow our knowledge and have been given multiple opportunities to make our careers and fulfill our goals, it is a God’s gift and should surely be respected. But have we ever thought about giving something back to the society, to the world where we currently live, to the place which has been gifted to us due to our good Karma? Why not make this world a better place, a land where no one is deprived of their dreams to see themselves up on the top.

There are a certain few amongst us, who in spite of having the necessary acumen and the much needed heart to progress in life and gain success, are forced on a back foot due to certain aspects thus hindering their path towards enlightenment and depriving them of the education and knowledge that we all are a part of.

The youth power that we have in India, can surely stand shoulder to shoulder with the advanced nations of the world and we have heard a lot along these lines from all over the world. In-spite of traveling on the path to achieving great economic success, we still lag behind in certain aspects, Education being the foremost concern for a modern India. A land where a youngster has to drop out of college simply due to lack of funds and proper amenities is a stigma upon the whole country which boasts of premiere multi-million dollars corporate houses and individuals who have made a great mark all around the globe. It is we, who need to take a step forward and stop that young person from dropping out of college simply because he or she cannot afford the books, or lacks proper directions to drive his/her career towards to a certain goal.

· Dr. Abdul Kalam: “The resource of the youth is an important building block for transforming India into a developed nation.”
· Nandan Nilekani (On problems faced by India currently): “I think the lack of education, I think there are a lot of young people who are not getting good schooling. Today the right of education is going to be the key for next 20 years.”
· L K Advani: “Let’s Empower Young India to Build Stronger India.”
· Sonia Gandhi: “If we achieve our objective, many thousands of young men and women will receive the benefits of higher education. They would be in a position to contribute to the development and progress of the country.”

Quality and Affordable Higher Education for Youth is the most important piece of the puzzle towards building a strong Nation.

With this concept, heart and a dream of our own, Point10 comes forward to you, through which, hands can come forward to reach out to such students who in-spite of having the correct number of intelligent cells in their brain, are not able to fulfill their dream of moving forward through college and higher education, either due to lack of books, equipments, facilities or simply lack of support and guidance. Through Point10’s various other mediums, one can surely choose his/her strongest quality and put it to good use to help the needy students.

With this note, we, the team at Point10, hereby call upon all the responsible citizens to come forward and help us, help the students and above all help your own self, to join hand in hand and embark upon a journey of changing how the word Education is referred to in India and thus make a mark, either small or big. Remember, we are just a medium, it is you who needs to be the savior.

Point10Solutions: The parent portal, bringing together every aspect of a student’s life from Books to Education, from Projects to Jobs. This is the Point10Way of saying that we care.

Books10: A portal to help the needy students procure help and support for their continuing education through books from seniors and other students who are willing to help.

Revitalizing The Education Ecosystem !

It’s all about Proactively helping others.

Pessimistic would say that in today's realistic world, people don’t have time for others or how can you trust someone to return a favor.
Optimistic would say that everything that goes around comes back around to you.

There is no one in the world, who either has not extended their hands and asked for a favor, but there are certainly a lot of people, who might have never stepped forward in fulfilling that asked favor. Our message is quite simple, we all expect some kind of help from someone, but unless and until we do not give something to the world, how can we even think about complaining for not receiving any favors.

Following is a fictional story showing how we can revitalize our Education Eco-system with a collaborative effort from all of us out there and thus get the good will moving - as always remember - what goes around definitely comes back around.

James Smith – Comes from a lower-middle-class family, very smart and intelligent, excellent in sports and studies...
Paul Martin – Comes from a higher-middle-class family, intelligent enough to get the work done, good in sports and studies...
Steve Jackson – Comes from a rich family, good in sports and studies...

James, Paul, and Smith get admissions into the AMR University for their B.Tech (Computer Science). They need guidance on how to go about their studies,syllabus books, study material and what not. They log onto BOOKS10Solutions to find out if someone is donating any books or not and if there is someone out there who can help them through acquiring some good reference study material.

James gets to know that there are some people who would like to Fund Books for 1 Student for 1 Year, so he contacts them to check whether he is eligible for that kindness? James informs Paul about this Books10 project which has been going around, and asks him to find out whether he is eligible too, or not. In a way, James also explains the message of the Point10 Team's “Fund Books for 1 Student for 1 Year" project.

Paul is aware of some people who would like to fund books for students and knows some senior students who might have the books that he needs. Thus, instead of getting the free funded books (Paul thinks that he can afford the Books so he does not want to get the Free Books), he chooses to get the older books at cheaper prices from Seniors Mark and Kevin. He contacts them and finds out that they are already the members of Point10 Student Chapter in AMR University. Mark and Kevin give their books to Paul and James at a reasonable price and also imparts valuable suggestions to them about how to proceed with their further studies and planning.

Now, another student Steve, comes to know about the Books10 project of Point10 team, from James and Paul. He likes the concept and tells his parents about the same. His father Mr. Jackson impressed by the enthusiasm from Steve and this noble concept tells Steve that he would like to fund the books for two of his friends who can not afford the cost of such books. Also on the Books10 portal they find out that there are some Mentors working in MNCs who are willing to come forward and help students whenever required. This proactive help, makes the students feel much more secure for their future goals knowing that there many people around them who can and who would help/support/guide them as and when required.

Once these students get settled down with their studies, they face another dilemna of selecting the right Semester Project as per the curriculum. Ideally they would prefer to do a project which can benefit them in the future, more likely an industry specific project which has the potential to become a product at some point of time.

They log onto the Projects10 portal of Point10 Team's venture, to explore what kind of projects their seniors have done and to browse some resources to help them figure out some ideas for their term project. James and Paul come across a project “School Management System” which was developed by Anthony who’s now working in Microsoft. They like the project and want to do something related to “School Management System”. They can see Anthony’s contact information in the portal and so they contact Anthony to find out what sort of ground work he did for the project, which are the places he visited, what tools he used etc. Anthony guides them about the project and suggests them to take the existing project done by him and improve it to take it to the next level. They work very hard for the project with guidance from Anthony and other Mentors. Finally they develop a small prototype which can actually be used in schools. They successfully implement the “School Management System” in “St. Johns School”, which wouldn’t have the funds to buy expensive software from the professional companies. By this way they get some amazing Industry Experience and at the same time have given something back to the society.

Steve and his classmates Mark and Mike want to develop something in Web 2.0 space. They can see lots of projects related to Web 2.0 from their seniors from AMR University and other colleges in the state. On contacting them for guidance, they get some proactive help and suggestions from Steve on what kind of tools to be used, analysis to be done to make the project scalable. This helps them to better understand the concepts and also get acquainted with the actual industry professionals. Finally they develop a web portal where they would profile all the SMEs in the state, which can be used as their E-Commerce Platform. They read newspapers quite regularly. They get to know about the project done by Michael (RICK University Student, RICK University is the most famous University in the town known for hefty placements for students) which sounds very cool but doesn’t have any real-life implication. They feel disheartened that not many people are recognizing their good work.

So, they log into EDUCATION10 portal of Point10 Team's venture, to inform the community about the good work done by them. They get interviewed by Sam (another student from AMR University, member of Point10 Student Chapter). Next day they all get highlighted in the Education10 portal for doing an amazing work for their projects.
1. “School Management System” and also comments from the Principal of “St. John’s School” were mentioned.
2. An E-commerce portal for SMEs and the comments from the owner of one of the SMEs visited by Steve and his team were mentioned.

Having seen some interesting work done by the students of AMR University, John (Sr. Journalist from EduTimes Newspaper, prominent Newspaper in the state) writes a story on his column about these students.

James and Paul are trying to find out certain ways of earning some money to cope uo with their expenses even as they are finishing studies. Also Steve and his friends want to get bit of an experience on Market Research projects. They log into Jobs10 portal, one more venture from Point10 Team, to find our which companies are hiring, giving out projects/internships/jobs to the students who are willing to work 4-5 hours daily to meet their educational expenses and get industry experience during their studies. James and Paul find out that “MIT Solutions”, leading IT solutions provider, want to expand their business into Education domain, looking for bright and talented students who can work for 3-4 hours daily. They have already learned a bit about the tricks of this trade during their “School Management System” project, and so it becomes very easy for them to impress the Interviewer and get selected. Now they’ll be able to earn something to help fund their education. At the same time they will get an amazing work experience which will help them in future. Steve and his friends, gets selected by “MML Industries” who want to hire some intelligent students for part-time Market Research and Awareness campaign before their New Product Launch. Steve and his friends gets selected in the company, they get to learn lot of things and also get good grades for their semester project.

• They don’t have to be dependent on Campus interviews!
• They are competent enough to take on the sharks of the industry!
• They can choose the kind of profile/company they want to work with!
• Having gone through the Point10 ideology, James, Paul and Steve decide to go to the nearby slums and rural areas to teach (impart basic skills) the under privileged students.
• They also PROACTIVELY take part in the various activities being carried out by the Government Organizations and NGOs for the betterment of the Society.
• They also proactively share their experience/skills with the Youth over there on how they can get the jobs in BPOs, ITES, and Sales Organization, which really can help them in future.

We might not get successful in our Endeavors if we don’t have ...
• Young Professionals funding the books for at least 1 student for 1 year!
• Mr. Jackson showing the willingness to fund books for couple of students!
• Mark and Kevin (seniors) giving valuable guidance to Paul for his further studies!
• Anthony working in Microsoft (Alumni – AMR University) doesn’t show the proactiveness to guide James and Paul!!
• Principal (St. John’s School) allowing James and Paul to get an insight into about their day-to-day operations!
• Sam become the active member of Point10 Student Chapter to take interviews of fellow students doing good work!
• John (Sr. Journalist –EduTimes) profile the good work done by the students of AMR University in his column!
• MIT Solutions and MML Industries showing the willingness to give students the opportunity to exercise their potential!
• James, Paul and Steve proactively helping the under privileged students living around them!
• James, Paul and Steve proactively help the under privileged students living around them !

But we will be highly successful if we have ...
• Young Professionals funding the books for at least 1 student for 1 year!
• Mr. Patel showing the willingness to fund books for couple of students!
• Amit and Kapil (seniors) giving valuable guidance to Rohit (Junior) for his further studies!
• Ramesh Chauhan working in L &T InfoTech (Alumni – Nirma University) shows the proactiveness to guide Rahul and Rohit (Students of Nirma University)!!
• Principal (Anand Niketan School) allowing Rahul and Rohit in getting an insight about their day-to-day operations!
• Mayank, Shalin and Utsav become the active member of Point10 Student Chapter to take interviews of fellow students doing good work!
• Journalists from AM,TOI and DNA profile the good work done by the students of lesser known colleges.
• EInfochips and Gateway Technolabs show the willingness to give students the opportunity to exercise their potential!
• Mayank , Shalin and Utsav proactively helping the under privileged students living around them !

We are pretty much sure that one day we will replace the Fictional Characters mentioned above with the rea-life characters with real-life stories.

At Point10, we are putting in everything that we have to make this belief happen!!!
We look forward to an everlasting relationship with all those who want to be a part of our dream and bring it to reality.

We look forward to your support and positive as well as negative feedback, suggestions and comments to make us improve in our efforts to realize this dream.

Best Regards
