   BRIDGING THEACADEMIA-INDUSTRY GAP  The Great Mind Challenge (TGMC) is India’s largest technology contest. It has grown from strength to strength since its inception. Today, young and enthusiastic students from the country’s leading technology institutes look forward to it as a forum to prove their mettle. TGMC was created and promoted with a certain purpose. It seeks to address the gap between the performance of young IT graduates and the real-world expectations of employers.TGMC, is in a sense, a ‘bridge’ that enables conversations between academia and the corporate world. Bridges have always supported such exchanges between two separate groups, freely allowing commerce and exchanges of information.In this book we pay tribute to the world’s greatest bridges.  We also honour the winners of The Great Mind Challenge 2011. The Book Of Excellence  It is a hugely satisfying experience to watch hesitant young talents get a grasp of what is required, and then progress at an unstoppable pace to the finish line. Year after year we’re treated to just such a phenomenon. Students of technology led by faculty members from their institutes, overcome obstacles that often fox even seasoned professionals. The best of them are declared winners of the prestigious TGMC. To explain why we conduct TGMC and how it contributes to the calibre of the growing Indian workforce, I’ll need to first tell you about Project Praviin. Project Praviin, helping young professionals contribute to the workplace from day one. Four years ago Project Praviin got off to a flying start. An innovative program launched under the aegis of the IBM Academic Initiative, it partners with colleges and universities in India to prepare millions of students for a more skilled IT workforce. To achieve this IBM provides a broad range of resources and support to students, faculty and institutions. Project Praviin is a skill building initiative offered to students through professional training and certification. The project is intended to create individuals who can start contributing from the very day they join – with little, or no, on-the-job training. Malathi Srinivasan, Country Leader,  Academic Initiative, Software Group, IBM India.   Malathi Srinivasan TGMC Where Students Get AnExhilarating Taste Of Things To Come. 12  While Project Praviin provides training and certification, mostly theoretical in nature, TGMC is really where student-engineers ‘get their hands dirty’ with software, developing real-world, real-time solutions. That is why TGMC is, and should continue to be an integral part of a student’s education. TGMC is not just a contest, it’s much more. Participating in TGMC is of no mean significance to one’s future, it shows the world that one is capable of genuine real-world excellence. It also makes the students, institutes and organisations part of a larger national mission to create software talents of outstanding standards. The quality of motivated youngsters we come across in TGMC makes us believe that the skills in India are really world class. And that as individuals, they will make the country proud. Breaking records is now routine. In the year 2011 we broke our own record in the Limca Book of Records, for being the largest technology contest of its kind in India. And you’ll be happy to know that we’re going to apply for the inclusion of TGMC in the Guinness Book of World Records. Our growth over the years is a matter of great pride for us. With 47,244 registrations in 2008 and 1,12,000+ in 2009, the number of students participating has been increasing. In 2010, TGMC received 1,20,000+ student registrations and touched 2,00,000+ in 2011, which vouches for the fact that it is accepted by the academia whole-heartedly. Looking forward. TGMC is set to become a high-quality doorway to coveted careers in most corporate houses. Recruiting organisations have expressed interest in interviewing our brightest and best. A few sponsor organisations have absorbed those students who performed well while working on their projects. TGMC 2012, asks for your continued support and participation. Let us together power the Indian software industry to the pinnacle of global excellence.  Golden Gate Bridge  A symbol of San Francisco and one of the most famous suspension bridges in the world.
