Updated: April 7 2017 12:55 am Bharat Sikka Abhinav Saha Top News For most of us we switch off our mind and put our work intuition on hold when on a vacation But that is not the case with photographer Bharat Sikka For him a 2013 Kashmir vacation led to an obsession to capture the men in the Valley and their world And over numerous subsequent visits to Kashmir he fulfilled this endeavour leading to “Where the Flowers Still Grow” a series of photographs that are currently on display at Nature Morte art gallery in Delhi As things were being set up last week Sikka clad in track pants and t-shirt seemed completely at home in the gallery — maybe because some of his works were already hanging on the walls “While I was on a holiday in Kashmir in 2013 I caught hold of Mirza Waheed’s novel The Collaborator and the seeds were sown ” says Sikka 44 Waheed’s 2011 novel tells the tale of a young Kashmiri man who ends up working in the Indian Army and has to count the dead bodies of militants who have died in encounters with them While the inspiration of the works is powerfully political and conflict-centric the works themselves are not “This is my own journey into that land which in the recent past has only made headlines due to its conflicts and political upheavals I have stayed away from the politics of it all What you see here are standard portraits — of people and abstract things But they also reflect my own inner journey of deconstructing and discovering things on my own This is my version of Kashmir” says the Parsons School of Design graduate So in one of the photographs there is a young man presumably in his early twenties holding a log of wood and staring stoically into the lens He is surrounded by the traditional leitmotifs of Kashmir — lush green meadows a horse leisurely grazing and tall deodar trees forming a picturesque background In another picture which is hard to miss an old man is standing amidst an expanse of dried poplar trees The poplars provide a camouflage of sorts and the old man blends in seamlessly “We usually see the typical landscapes with beauteous mountains and chinar trees but the people are missing I was very surprised that the people were actually very receptive to be being photographed I would trek for hours saunter around and people welcomed me into their houses I ended up spending a large part of the last three years in the Valley” adds Sikka While there are 18 portraits the show also exhibits a large number of abstract landscapes and daily use objects ranging from a wooden almirah to a doorway shrouded by a colourful embroidered curtain Together they serve as the mise-en-scene for the show There are no women in the exhibition though Sikka is quick to clarify that isn’t because they were not comfortable being photographed “It’s just that I photograph men and this work is a continuation of my larger project titled ‘Indian Men’ where I have photographed Indian men” adds Sikka looking at the faces from the Valley The exhibition is on at Nature Morte Gallery Block A Neeti Bagh till May 27 Contact: 41740215 For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More Top NewsAAU President Hunter Rawlings AAU This week the Association of American Universities (AAU) announced a 5-year effort to improve undergraduate science math and engineering education It joins an already crowded field of public and private entities who believe that the current system of training both the next generation of researchers and a scientifically savvy public falls short of doing either job well Those faults they say put at risk the country’s economic well-being and its leadership in science and innovation Hunter Rawlings a former president of Cornell University who became AAU president last June admits that "it’s a little bit unusual" for the Washington DC-based organization of 61 major research universities "to undertake a project running for several years that will try to impact our membership broadly" But he thinks that AAU is in a good position to build on what others including some of its member institutions have been doing to promote what’s often called "active learning" Rawlings is seeking outside funding to support fundamental changes in how STEM (science technology engineering and mathematics) courses are taught on a half-dozen AAU campuses and then to disseminate those "best practices" widely to other AAU schools and the rest of US higher education He’s also assembled a blue-ribbon panel of experts to help plan those activities and evaluate the results No single organization can improve undergraduate STEM education on its own says Robert Mathieu an astronomer who directs the Center for the Integration of Research Teaching and Learning based at the University of Wisconsin Madison It’s a systemic problem he says "but AAU is one of the key levers that has to be aligned" citing the huge role that AAU institutions play in preparing future faculty members Rawlings talked with ScienceInsider about the challenge facing AAU and what must happen for its initiative to succeed Here are excerpts of that interview Q: Why has it taken AAU so long to do this HR: Part of the reason is because the research wasn’t conclusive until recently Now there’s a sense within the community that it’s been shown that these new methods of engaging students more intensively are showing results… Scientists after all are evidence-based people They want to see evidence before they are going to make a change in something as important as this And I think the evidence is mostly in and usable A second thing that drives us is that we’ve had enough experience with undergraduate research programs to understand that students are more likely to become scientists if they are actively engaged in research Colleges like to say how many students are engaged in research and students are happy working in the lab getting their hands dirty A third thing is that there are better ways now to disseminate best practices For example the AAAS project Vision and Change in Undergraduate Biology [Education] is a sensational effort and a great way to offer more intensive learning experiences And HHMI [Howard Hughes Medical Institute] is putting together a Web site on undergraduate biology for faculty to use Once it’s up and running you’ll be able to go there and find a curriculum and adapt it for your course Q: How will AAU presidents be involved HR: One thing we’d like to happen is for several of them to volunteer to have their campuses become pilots for these new practices We’re hoping for four to six AAU institutions to be part of an effort—and we hope to write a grant proposal to fund it—to put these best practices consistently into the classroom Q: Some universities are already doing much more than that Why do you need to run pilots HR: Some places have been very active But I think we need more examples from big public and private universities from smaller public universities and so on We’d like to be able to offer scientists a body of evidence showing them that in a situation similar to their own here are the results Q: Your former institution Cornell has also been very active What have they learned HR: It’s important that a university implements these changes as widely as possible Peter Lepage who is dean of arts and sciences and is also co-chair of the PCAST [President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology] task force on STEM higher education is about to introduce some stuff along these lines It needs to be broad coverage in math in engineering in chemistry and not just in one course To be successful this can’t be just individual courses . because if you change the introductory course but not the follow-up courses you won’t make a lot of progress In order for universities to do this to revise a sequence of courses over several disciplines we’re going to need some real incentives A grant would provide faculty some time to really work on this Q: NSF already has programs to reward teaching in various ways How would this initiative enhance those efforts HR: Linda Slakey [a senior administrator within the education directorate at the National Science Foundation] has agreed to be a liaison to our advisory committee She’s a real expert and someone who is passionate about this I think that she would say we need a much more concerted effort across STEM fields to get a larger body of evidence that X Y and Z work and that A B and C don’t work so well She’s one of the best informed people I know on this Q: Your supplementary materials cite a study showing cognitive dissonance among faculty members with a majority agreeing that teaching is important but they favor hiring someone with a strong research record over someone with excellent teaching skills How will that attitude ever change HR: I think it will change when faculty members become convinced that teaching a great intro calculus course is one of the most important things they could possibly do It will take that kind of passionate commitment Q: What would convince them HR: One thing would be for them to see success at another university … Scientists are competitive And they won’t feel good if they hear about another institution that is doing better We’ll also need to find a better way of incenting serious work on undergraduate education That could come through teaching awards But it could also comes through making it clear that serious work on improving undergraduate education will be rewarded come salary time I think that’s essential I don’t think we should beat around the bush Q: What will it take for AAU universities to make that commitment HR: Some of them already have But we need more We’re not inventing something new here AAU hasn’t done some great new research study that demonstrates something new Instead we’re trying to get greater adoption of best practices It’s not rocket science But it is a matter of overcoming barriers that we all know are there by changing the way you teach your course or developing a new sequence of chemistry courses That stuff is hard Most of us teach the way we’ve learned And once we have a syllabus in place we don’t want to spend a lot of time altering it Q: You don’t talk about broadening participation Why is that HR: We don’t have it in a goal partly because we don’t know what the goal should be The numbers show that there are different achievement levels among different ethnic groups and that these new approaches can narrow that gap by offering more active learning in smaller groups So I think that will be helpful But we don’t know the details Q: What’s your timetable HR: It’s a 5-year project because this is a deep-seated long-term problem We want to spend 5 solid years developing pilots getting a grant and pushing our members to adopt these best practices . We will look to see if these new methods are producing better results wider adoption and new behaviors in terms of rewarding faculty members for pedagogical invention We want to create a framework to assess and monitor the results And it’s not just student performance It’s also student retention One of the big issues is the 40% of students who declare a STEM major and then drop out Can we affect that number It’s a tall order but that’s what we want to do Written by Express News Service | Pune | Published: February 25 2010 3:58 am Related News With the recommendation to maintain a national registry for desirable vice chancellor candidates across the countrythe process of selection of vice chancellors of state universities is expected to become more transparent The recommendation has been proposed in the draft bill of National Council for Higher Education and Research (NCHER) to be formed as a single authority for higher education in the country Narendra Jadhavmember of Planning Commission and the task force set up to implement the recommendations of Yash Pal Committeeelaborated on the move on Wednesday He said?
