This expert lecture included various things like what is Intellectual Property Rights, the need for intellectual property rights, types of intellectual property and why is it is important. In this lecture we learnt that Intellectual property rights (IPR) are the rights given to persons over the creations of their minds: inventions, literary and artistic works, and symbols, names and images used in commerce. They usually give the creator an exclusive right over the use of his/her creation for a certain period of time. These rights are given through patents, copyrights and trademarks. Holders of intellectual property rights have a monopoly on the usage of property or items for a specified time period.
Sir spoke on the various types of intellectual property which included Patents, Copyrights, Trademarks and Trade secrets. We understood that Patents are used for protecting new inventions, ideas, or processes. Patent holders need to pay periodic government renewal fees. An approved patent is for a limited time period. Copyrights are used to protect the ideas, examples would be written works, music, art, etc and trademarks are something that protects the symbols, colors, phrases, sounds and design.
He also covered the need of intellectual property and said that intellectual property rights encourage innovations, supports economic growth, safeguards the rights of creators and ensures ease of doing business. Sir also spoke on the various policies under intellectual property rights that are adopted by the government of India such as Patents (Amendment) Act, 1999 Trade Marks Bill, 1999.
This was concluded with the important of Intellectual property rights in which he said that Intellectual Property Rights are important to stimulate and promote research and development. If the inventions and ideas of individuals and organizations are not protected then the concerned people or organizations will not reap the benefits of their hard work and naturally, it will lead to discontent and reduce the efforts in the field of research and development, which is extremely important for the growth and development of humanity.
The key take away from this lecture was what is an intellectual property right and how every individual can protect or safeguard their creations. We also learnt the need for intellectual property rights and how business or company stands unique from other businesses in the market using IPR and how it encourages individuals to distribute and share information and data instead of keeping it confidential.

Cloud computing is a technology that uses the internet for storing and managing data on remote servers, and then access data via the internet. One such example is Google cloud – it is a suite of public cloud services offered by Google. All the application development runs on Google hardware. Cloud computing is believed to have been invented by Joseph Carl Robnett Licklider in the 1960s with his work on ARPANET to connect people and data from anywhere at any time.
Mr. Arun Kumar spoke about the purpose of cloud computing technology. He remarked that cloud computing makes data backup, disaster recovery, and business continuity easier and less expensive because data can be mirrored at multiple redundant sites on the cloud provider's network. There are 4 main types of cloud computing: private clouds, public clouds, hybrid clouds, and multi clouds. There are also 3 main types of cloud computing services: Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Platforms-as-a-Service (PaaS), and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS). Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) is probably the most well-known application for cloud computing. Essentially, SaaS products distribute data online and are accessible from a browser on any device, which allows those companies to continue to host the software.

Topic: Relevance of Gandhian Nonviolence in the Third Millennium
For Mahatma Gandhi Ahimsa-non-violence was a Dharma, no matter if, for him, it was a plant of slow growth; and along with its activities, applicable in day-to-day practices, it was the means to achieve the goal. Satyagraha, pursuit of truth imbibed with Ahimsa was the weapon applied in political actions. He, as we know, largely succeeded in Ahimsa and Satyagraha, because he was brave, humble and free from hatred. All these three were, and are, fully within the scope of non-violence; in other words, they were, and are, themselves the best introduction of Ahimsa. And Mahatma Gandhi practiced them in the best possible manner both in his individual life and public life. Further, he loved everybody without any discrimination. Love is a value supplementary to Ahimsa.
Dr T. Ravichandran also spoke about the “principle of non-violence”. Non-violence is not a negative virtue, but the positive one of love and compassion. He writes, 'Ahimsa is one of the world's great principles which no power on earth can wipe out. Thousands like myself may die in trying to vindicate the ideal but ahimsa will never die.’

Topic: Internet and Security
The Internet is a vast network that connects computers all over the world. People can share information and communicate from anywhere with an Internet connection. INTERNET stands for Interconnected Network - that is a network system that connects millions of web servers. Internet, a system architecture that has revolutionized communications and methods of commerce by allowing various computer networks around the world to interconnect. Sometimes referred to as a “network of networks,” the Internet emerged in the United States in the 1970s but did not become visible to the general public until the early 1990s. By 2020, approximately 4.5 billion people, or more than half of the world’s population, were estimated to have access to the Internet.
Dr. Umesh T J spoke about “INTERNET AND SECURITY”. While there is no network that is immune to attacks, a stable and an efficient network security system is essential to protect client data. A good network security system helps business reduce the risk of falling victim of data theft and sabotage. Network security helps protect your workstations from harmful spyware. Thus, with the use of the internet security, the computer's internet account and files from the computer are protected from any intrusion of any unknown users. Basically, it works well by protecting the computer through passwords, changing file permissions and backing up computer's data. With broadband security software you can protect your computer when browsing the web or downloading. To avoid viruses, as well as online threats - including hackers, spyware, spam, and identity theft - it's essential that you have a security package installed.

Topic: Birth and Death of Stars
Astronomers believe that molecular clouds, dense clouds of gas located primarily in the spiral arms of galaxies are the birthplace of stars. Dense regions in the clouds collapse and form "proto stars". Initially, the gravitational energy of the collapsing star is the source of its energy. Once the star contracts enough that its central core can burn hydrogen to helium, it becomes a "main sequence" star. Stars are born in vast clouds of gas and dust. Stars spend most of their lives on the main sequence fusing hydrogen gas to helium gas. Stars eventually swell up to form a red giant star. Stars like the Sun end their lives as planetary nebulae and white dwarfs.
Dr. Sindhu Pandey spoke about ‘Life Cycle of Stars’. A star's life cycle is determined by its mass. A star's mass is determined by the amount of matter that is available in its nebula, the giant cloud of gas and dust from which it was born. ... Over time, the hydrogen gas in the nebula is pulled together by gravity and it begins to spin. The first stage in the birth of a star is called a protostar. As long as there is still inflowing material, the object is a protostar. When the core of a protostar has reached about 10 million K, pressure within is so great that nuclear fusion of hydrogen begins, and a star is born. Stars die because they exhaust their nuclear fuel. ... Once there is no fuel left, the star collapses and the outer layers explode as a 'supernova'. What's left over after a supernova explosion is a 'neutron star' – the collapsed core of the star – or, if there's sufficient mass, a black hole. The upper layers will expand and eject material that will collect around the dying star to form a Planetary Nebula.
Supernovae leave behind Neutron Stars or Black Holes “In a supernova, the star's core collapses and then explodes. In massive stars, a complex series of nuclear reactions leads to the production of iron in the core” – NASA.

Physical fitness gets plenty of attention, and for good reason. A healthy body can prevent conditions such as heart disease and diabetes, and help you maintain independence as you age.
Mental fitness is just as important as physical fitness, and shouldn’t be neglected. Including mental dexterity exercises into your daily routine can help you reap the benefits of a sharper mind and a healthier body for years to come.
Mental fitness means keeping your brain and emotional health in tip-top shape. It doesn’t mean training for “brain Olympics” or acing an IQ test. It refers to a series of exercises that help you:
• slow down
• boost a flagging memory
Dr. Sreeraj spoke about “The importance of mental fitness”, “Mind-Body connection”, “Benefits of mental fitness”, “how to keep fit in this pandemic”, and “Being positive with oneself”. Mental fitness is important in maintaining your brain and your body healthy, especially as you age. There are many types of mental dexterity exercises, and you don’t need to go to the gym to do them. They include active ones, such as learning a new song or playing a game, as well as restful ones, such as relaxation, and visualization exercises. Schedule a mental fitness break into your calendar right next to your workout schedule. Your mind and your health are worth it.
“Mental health needs a great deal of attention. It’s the final taboo and it needs to be faced and dealt with.”
