“ASTHITHVA” the first magazine of the IES College of Engineering


is being released after a rather long period of persistent efforts by the
Magazine Committee to give the shape it has attained now in its style and
contents. Being the starter it could have its share of shortcomings, still it
would become evident as one goes through the magazine that it has
exhibited sparks of the vibrant life here at IESCE with flashes of brilliance
at times in its articles and presentation.

The Magazine Committee could very well earn acclaim for the good
work it has carried out. Let this become the starting block for bringing out
the future issues of the magazine at a faster pace and added vitality and
vigour that will reflect a truly dynamic and progressive campus life we
all strive to have here. All the best wishes are offered here for attaining
such a glorious future for the endeavours of the fraternity of IESCE.

S teganography literally means covered writing. It is the


art and science of hiding information by embedding messages



within other. It works by replacing bits of useless or unused


data in regular computer files (such as graphics, sound, text,



HTML) with bits of different invisible information.This hidden



information can be plain text, cipher text or even images.



The art of Steganography dates back to ancient Greece,



where messages were etched in wooden tablets and they were


then covered with wax. Another method was by tattooing a



shaved messenger’s head, then letting his hair grow and then

shaving it again when he arrives at his destination and so on.



Steganography is used sometimes when encryption is not



permitted. Encryption is actually sending messages by hiding



the information contained in it and this may be known only


to the sender and the receiver. More commonly,



Steganography is used to supplement encryption. An



encrypted file may still hide information suiting


Steganography. Even if the encrypted file is deciphered, the



hidden message is not seen. Special software is needed for



Steganography and there are freeware version available at any


good download sites.




Steganography includes a vast array of methods of secret


communications that conceal the very existence of the message.



Among these methods are - invisible inks, digital signatures



etc.

Steganography is the art of concealing the existence of



information within seemingly innocuous carriers. It can be



viewed as akin to cryptography. Cryptograhic techniques

Ever since the era of Charles Babbage, computers had considerable development in all of its
parameters viz. operating speed, storage capacity, ease of use etc. They have also shrunk to a fraction
in size, increasing their usage. As the control and assistance exerted by the computers in the life of
mankind attained a status beyond imagination, the need of fast and secure long distance communication
between them came to the fore. When the technologies like WAN and Internet failed to fulfill the
desired connectivity due to cost and security concerns, Virtual Private Network (VPN) emerged as a
viable solution. It was conceptualized as an effective means for securely exchanging the information
between geographically distant locations using affordable public facilities like the Internet. It has the
same security and encryption features of a private network, while taking the advantage of the economy
and remote accessibility of public networks. VPN scores further as it is capable of handling even the
users on the move, bringing mobility into the enterprise-wide corporate network.
CREATION OF VPN
The key word in VPN is “Private”. Privacy and protection of data is of utmost importance while
deploying services over the Internet, where it can be vulnerable to attacks. The last thing any firm may
desire is their sensitive corporate information to end up in the hands of a competitor or a hacker.
Therefore a comprehensive solution might incorporate a firewall, router, proxy server and VPN software
or hardware. The creation of a virtual private connection is a three step process comprising
authentication, encryption and tunneling.
1. Authentication
Authentication is the process of differentiating between the authorized users from unexpected
intruders. It also identifies his privileges in the Network. Authentication can be done through passwords,
token and digital certificates. In order to authenticate the VPN users, a firewall is preferred. When
used in conjunction with strong authentication, VPN can effectively safeguard the network from the
intruders. Authentication is also performed periodically to ensure that the current entity is same, the
one which initiated the session.
2. Encryption
To ensure that the VPN is secure, controlling user access is only one part of the equation. Once
the user is authenticated, the data itself needs to be protected as well. Without a mechanism to provide
data privacy, information flowing through the channel will be in clear text and can easily be viewed
or stolen with a packet sniffer. Encryption of data ensures the secrecy, making it intelligible only to the
authorized users. The data is decrypted and converted back into readable text at the destination.
Although an unbreakable algorithm is yet to be developed, a sophisticated encryption system will
greatly minimize the chance for security gaps.
3. Tunneling
VPN creates a data tunnel between the server and the clients over existing TCP/IP protocol to
protect data from interceptions. Tunneling or encapsulation is the transmission of data - intended for

 Low cost
Since VPN uses a public network like the Internet
to distribute services over long distances,
expensive leased lines become a thing of the past.
In a traditional WAN, the number of leased lines
increases exponentially as the organization adds
more and more offices into the network. This limits
the flexibility for growth, whereas VPN avoid this
bottleneck by tapping into an almost universally
available network.

I n this modern day, computers are fast
becoming necessities. An engineering student,
whatever stream he is studying needs to use a
computer even at home other than using it in
restricted hours at college. But when such a
student enters as a buyer in a computer market
he finds an overwhelming confusing scenario
with wide range of products. This feature tries
to shed some light on how to choose a good
computer, which would be nice on your desk
and on your pocket too.
Basically computer market is made of two
segments, branded and assembled.
A branded computer is a computer, which SUVESH G.
is sold as a complete entity without any change. Lecturer
It is usually a product made by large companies Electronics & Communication Dept.
(like Compaq, HP, Zenith, LG, etc) backed by
large number of service centres. But they are
pricey and also not entirely suited for our use
sometimes. An assembled computer is a
computer in which the different components are

known to the buyer or the computer product
seller itself. In this feature we will be dealing
with assembled computer as it gives us the
maximum juice for our money.
Shopping
But before we enter into our deliberations the buyer should first decide two important things.
1) The budget for the system-the cost may vary from Rs. 15000 to around Rs. 60000. Also there
may be extra costs due to computer peripherals depending on the user’s requirement.
2) What will be the system used for? Are you a guy who only browses, uses word processor,
listens to music and play simple games then only a simple PC will suffix but if you are a game enthusiast
or a video audio professional then you should go for a powerful costlier system.
A PC has mainly two parts, the basic system and the peripherals.
Basic system is made of these components.
Processor Motherboard Keyboard Display card Floppy drive
Monitor Speakers Hard disk Sound card Casing with SMPS
Memory Mouse CD/DVD drive

PROCESSOR
It is the heart of computer system,which processes our data at lightening speed. Nowadays the
processors, which we see around us, are mostly 32-bit processors(i.e.they process 32 bits at a time).
There are only two or three manufacturers, which are producing competing products in this field.
1) Intel is one of the most popular processor manufacturing industry. Their processors have very
high clock speeds, which helps them to process data quickly. But their products are pricey. They have
two series of products.
a) Celeron is a comparatively cheaper processor.
b) Pentium 4 having more processing power is the big brother of Celeron.
2) AMD (Advanced Micro Devices) was a slow starter but it has made its presence felt quickly.
It has made products, which are cheaper but gives the same performance as Intel’s products. They
also have two famous brand names.
a) Sempron, the cheaper version.
b) Athlon, the powerful version.
AMD’s processors have lower clock speeds but their pipeline lengths are smaller which makes
them quicker in some. They now have introduced 64 bit processor. Thus making them the future of
processing.
3) Cyrix- Their processors are slowly diminishing from market, as their clock speeds are very
low. But their products are very cheap
4) IBM (International Business Machines) They supply processors for the stylish computers of
Apple Corp.
Name of the Company Product Name Price Range
Cyrix Cyrix 1000-1500
AMD Sempron 2000-4000

72
Motherboards for Athlon are available in the Rs.2000-4000 range, while motherboards for Pentium
costs between Rs.2000 and Rs. 6000 depending on their performance.
When buying a motherboard we should also consider these things.
1) Maximum amount of memory (RAM), the motherboard can support.
2) The motherboard should have the latest chipset and should be able to support the latest memory
available in the market.
3) System speed (the speed with which data transfer occurs in the motherboard) should be considered.
4) At least three PCI slots should be present. PCI slot is a slot through which certain cards like TV
tuner card, sound card, modems, etc. are connected to the motherboard.
5) Similarly more than two USB ports are needed. USB ports are needed for connecting devices like
digital camera, portable mp3 player to motherboard.
6) Also watch out for new features like SATA, PCI Express, SLI, etc.

MEMORY
Memory acts like a buffer between the processor and the hard disk to compensate for the large
difference in speed of the two. Memories can be bought in a wide range of sizes from 32 MB to 1024
MB. Nowadays at least 256 MB RAM is a necessity without which some programs can’t even start. If
you are buying 256 MB it is always good to buy two modules of 128 MB, as the processor will take
data from two slots of memory at the same time thus increasing the overall performance.
The speed of memory is also an important factor, which has to be considered. The newest ones
run at speeds like 333 MHz, 400 MHz and 533 MHz.
The memories are of different types like SD RAM, RD RAM, DDR RAM and DDR2 RAM. Currently
DDR RAM is being used in our systems. Always buy memory from well-known manufacturers like
Hynix, Corsair, etc.

Product Name Price Range (in Rupees)


128 MB DDR 600 -1000
256 MB DDR 1000 - 3000
1 GB DDR 7000 - 8000

MONITOR
A good viewing experience can be got only if your monitor is from a good manufacturer. Refrain
buying monitors of unknown brands. Mostly LG, Samsung and Philips rule the monitor segment.
Monitors can be broadly divided into three groups- ordinary, flat and LCD. LCD screens are
the costliest of the lot. For a student, a 15 inch screen is more than enough and will cost less than
Rs. 5000 to Rs. 8000.
HARD DISK
Nowadays we are using video and audio much more than earlier used. So we need a spacious
hard disk. They come in all capacities from 20 GB to 250 GB. Buy at least an 80 GB hard disk which
has a good storage to price ratio. rpm (revolutions per mintue) is used to describe hard disk’s speed.
Till now 5600 rpm hard disks were available. But now the costlier models having 7200 rpm and 10000

T houghts have great power.


Thoughts are like seeds you plant in your Mind.
The more ypu hold to a particular thought, the more power you invest in it.
Positive thoughts give us energy and strength.
Negative thoughts rob us of power and make us feel tired and strained.
We are by nature - positive.
Negativity is the result of faulty thinking.
You can change if you want to.
You can’t control other people, situations or circumstances,
But you can control what is going on inside you.
It takes time to change those old patterns of thinking.
Be patient with yourself.
It starts with a positive thought.

Because I can Neither drink nor eat.
I miss your smile that brought a smile to my face
And your “Hello” that added colours to my life.

Now you never ring me or remember me


Still you have a special place in my heart.
I close my eyes and see you beside
That’s what you are and you will be for me.

But It’s all over now, because

If a child lives with criticism, he learns to condemn.


If he lives with hostility, he learns to fight.
If he lives with fear, he learns to be apprehensive.
If he lives with pity, he learns to feel sorry for himself.
If he lives with jealousy, he learns to feel guilty.
If he lives with encouragement, he learns to be confident.
If he lives with tolerance, he learns to be patient.
If he lives with acceptance, he learns to love.
If he lives with approval, he learns to like himself.
If he lives with fairness, he learns to value justice.
If he lives with honesty, he learns to value truth.
If he lives with security, he learns to have faith in himself and others.
If he lives with friendliness, he learns that the world is a good place to live in.

Facts:
A human relationship is not a mechanical application of techniques,
it is the key to helping people.

Looking back, I just see the red stone wall behind my back,
Against which I sit reclined.
But gazing dreamily on to it,
Do I not see the past, the years that have gone by?
They’ll never come back because they have flown.......
Then the night comes and I watch the star - studded sky,
The moon’s beams encompass me, and make my spirits high.
Now I see myself as a plump little babe
Kicking its legs and its eyes in spate;
And mother comes running,lifts up her ‘little princess’ in her warm hands
Ah ! Those I must say were the best days of my life.
When every little wish was carried out,
When you could eat anything under the sun,
When you were free to run about and have lots of fun,
When there were no restrictions, no worries, no pains and no gains.
Then the kicking babe grows up,
Into a whining school kid with a satchel,
‘I can’t part from mum’, she yells.
And of course she’s named, ‘the naughtiest girl in school’
Then, through the rain-beaten window pane,
I see mum running behind me with a cane,
As I’d rolled in mud and got wet in the rain!!
Suddenly, I woke up from my trance,
I’m brought back from my dreamy prance.
Then did I realise that I was no longer a child!
But I pray to the Lord even now,
‘Please turn me back into a kid once more,
Bring me back those ages of yore.
let me cuddle into mum’s lap again,
And forget everything else which gives me pain’........

A long distance have I come


Travelling through different paths of life
Many dead ends have I come across
Many a time have I seeked the wrong path.

Today, as I am all alone, my mind not free


I could sense the past rushing; a feeling of eerie
All those painful memories, those tragedies
Instances of suffering, incidents of prejudice.
The past is a shadow, so vague
A blur; worse than a dreadful plague
Leaving behind in its trail, a mirage
Of pain and suffering, of humiliation and rage.

Memories are one’s most prized possession.


And when I peek into the past to find that passion.
That memory which could be cherished to the end
All I see is darkness, to the emptiness it blend
Times of misery, remorse and torment.
When have I mourned over the wounds that time couldn’t mend.
I used to have many hopes, many dreams.

But now in my sleep, I could hear the dreadful scream


Of my soul as it tries to extricate
From the very clutches of a horrible fate.

I came to the realisation that in my soul


Endured not but one memory that I can cherish
Not one thought which would make me happy.

Smile is nothing more than a mere mask


To hide the gnawing pain within.
My soul is as black as ebony, pure as a pearl
I found no better words to describe me-The Black Pearl.

A s dusk descended upon the quiet streets,


As night opened its dark wings;
Crouched in a corner of an empty street,
Lay asleep a poor hungry lonely child.
I happened to pass by that day,
And stopped for a while to observe the child.
Hunger had caught him in every way,
His ragged clothes calling out his plight.
The day’s rain had also played its role,
In soaking the child from head to toe.
I wondered how he managed to sleep,
For the nights chill bit into the skin too deep.
The swollen eyes on his tear dried face,
Showed the pain of his weeping heart.
I wished I could drive away all his sorrows,
Free him from all his tears.
It was pitiful to see him in distress,
But what could I do for I was myself homeless!

O ur
teen Cricket life
Ceases with a wife
on 20th or 30th overs
when we are all jobbers .

In the bribe-blaming pressure


lively batsman fail to fetch treasures.
The pressure of family balls, red
and the tr easures of livelihood, bread.

When balls bounce over the head


They hook it over the first night bed .
When balls swing to abdomen, hot
They kneel to play the sweeping shot .

When balls york to the toes, bottom


They drive st raight with mind rotten .
When balls turn to the offside end
They pull bat for a future mend.

At last, but.......................
It struck the life ball out
and makes the males “ALL OUT!”
And in the bribe-blaming pressures
lively batsman, fail to fetch treasures.....

I start my day by sitting on a chair,


Giving my monitor a hard, cold stare,
By evening I’m done with another coding,
Oh! This has become a routine so boring.

Like all, I entered this field with great hope,


Jobs were many and there was plenty of scope,
Dreams of joining the likes of Gates,
And a chance to make money in the States.

Thus, I entered the world of bytes,


Only to realize that reality bites,
‘Coz a programmer’s life, isn’t all that cozy,
The bed of software, isn’t all that rosy.

Seeing the monitor all day and night,


Have taken the power off my eye sight,
Late to bed and late to rise,
Has made me wealthy, but not healthy and wise.

Working holidays, busy weekends,


No time for family, no time for friends,
My job steals most of my time,
Helplessly, I watch this crime.

Just for bits of money,


I forego those moments with my Honey,
When I should be out, having fun,
I’m telling a comp, what’s to be done.

I hate U, yet I can’t get away,


‘Coz, I need the money U pay,
God, to thee I pray,
If there be one-show me the way.

Mother’s harmonious voice called out wild, He is polluting you with fumes of death,
come back - come back my child He is ruling you from head to depth,
Her voice is with a rhythmic strain, You are put to struggle in depravity,
Haunting waves of sadness - all in vain, As he prowls along with cruelty.
But the child - mischievous child, But still Oh! mother your pious mind
Has his ears deaf and vision blind. Confers him a chance to respire in your mind.

The rising sun tells the story And still you, mother shall surely witness
Past fury and the glory. death of your son, who is rushtless.
Golden moon crawls through all night He will pinch himself off with anguish,
And dreams along amidst day light. and hence forever perish.
Timid trees, meadows and the greenery Neither a relic nor fossil.
All spellbound by your maternity. Shall survive that ferocious struggle.
The mist, the fog and tiny dew drops.
Melts the heaviest of the rocks. This will be the prize
Mother you are beautiful, of your deed - the mistake.
With sections of life - bountiful. Yes you committed a mistake.
You made him think
But still your mistake haunts you, You gave him brain
One of your sons has betrayed you. You made him earn food
He walks along challenging you With no pain
Destroying blossoms anew. You made him survive,
He persuades you to change adapt - adapt, this is your mistake
But you never change a bit. your lone misdeed.

In our day-to- day life we often come across the situations where we get the knowledge of an event before
it happens or become aware of something that is out of sight, or can read what another person thinks etc. This
happens without the use of any of our five senses. Hence we call this ability as Extra Sensory Perception (ESP)
which literally means 'awareness outside the senses’. Some people also call it as 'sixth sense’.
But the scientists as well as psychologists are not unanimous about the existence of ESP. The controversy is
that this phenomenon can be explained in other ways and Science has not been able to either explain or prove
this. Branch of Science which deals with the phenomena which are happening without obeying any of our
natural principles is called ‘Parapsychology’. In 20th century research into parapsychology was also conducted
at some universities, notably at Duke University under J .B. Rhine and he has published a book named Extra
Sensory Perception.
There are four basic areas of experiments in the field of extra sensory perception. The experiments involved,
telepathy, clairvoyance, precognition and psychokinesis. The ESP researchers use a special deck of cards which
contains certain symbols.
In telepathy experiment a person tries to read the mind of other person. Telepathy involves sending of thoughts,
feelings or knowledge from one person to another without any apparent medium. Clairvoyance is the state of
being mentally aware of something that is out of sight . Precognition is the knowledge of an event by means of
telepathy or clairvoyance before it happens.Psychokinesis is the psychological control of physical objects. For
example while tossing the coin a person might concentrate on the heads and cause it to appear.
It is said that all people do not possess such powers to see truth directly without reasoning. The scientists
have been studying this phenomenon because they feel it has enormous potential for a fruitful research. For
example a person with ESP abilities might be able to predict future wars, locate valuable mineral deposits or even
accomplish other things of great importance.

Three people ran a marathon along with hundreds of others. None of them
won the race. Does that mean that these three people were losers? Not at all. Each
went into the race with different objectives. The first ran the race to test his endurance
- he came out better than his expectations. The second wanted to improve on his
previous performance, and he did it. The third person had never run a marathon -
his objective was to complete the race and he did. Each of these three entered the
race with different objectives, they all met them, and they were all winners, regardless
of who won the race.
Mark Twain said, it is better to deserve an honour and not have it than to have
it and not deserve it. Dignity is not in possessing but deserving.
If winning is your only objective, you may miss out on the internal rewards
that come with doing something well. More important than winning is winning
with honour and deserving to have won. It is better to lose honourably than to
succeed with dishonesty. Losing honourably may signify lack of preparation but
dishonest winning signifies lack of character.
The real test of person’s character is what he would or would not do, if he
knew he would not get caught. It is not worth compromising one’s integrity and
taking short-cuts to win. One may win a trophy but knowing the truth one can
never be a happy person. More important than winning a trophy is being a good
human being.
Winners live and work everyday as if it were their last day because one of
these days it is going to be and nobody knows which one. But when they leave,
they leave as winners. ?

Though the term personality is frequently used
by people, there does not seem to be any consensus
about its meaning.
The term personality has been derived from Latin
word “Persona” which means ‘to speak through’. This
Latin term denotes the masks which the actors used to

Here’s an incident that happened long back.


It was narrated to me by my beloved professor of
English,Dr. Jayanthi Balakrishnan from her personal
experience.

It was a rainy afternoon. The first hour of the


session- language now for all first degree classes,
got over. The students and the lecturer busily came
out of the lecture hall as everyone had class the
very next hour in their own departments which were
at a10-15 minutes walking distance. The old
college buildings are so scattered in the campus
that a bus service inside the campus can never be
considered as a luxury.

Everyone waited anxiously for the rain to lower


its intensity. But nothing happened. Slowly the
students started playing in the water logged in the
verandah and later they started dancing in the
rain too. The lecturer,as her age for a rain - dance
had passed, stood in the verandah enjoying her
students celebrating their youth in the blessing
shower of sky. A student whose legs were weakened
by an attack of polio, was sitting near to her in his
wheel chair. He too was watching with the lecturer,
the students making paper boats and all. Suddenly
he turned his face towards his teacher and asked
a question which was in no way related to the
situation.

“Madam, you’re having a child of three years,


no? Did you give him polio drops this year?”.

BALANCING CREATION
Compiled by
DILIP RAMAKRISHNAN
God was in the process of creating the universe and S5 CE
he was explaining to his subordinates-
“Look, every thing should be in balance. For every ten deers there should be a lion. Look here, my fellow angels,
here is the country of United States, I have blessed them with prosperity and money. But at the same time I have
given them insecurity and tension. And here is Africa, I have given them beautiful nature. But at the same time I
have given them climatic extremes. And here is South America, I have given them lots of forest. But at the same
time I have given them lesser land so that they would have to cut off the forests..... so you see fellows everything
should be in balance”.
One of the angels asked, “God, what is this beautiful country here?” God said ''Ahah, that is the crown piece of
all, India. My most precious creation, they have understanding and friendly people. Sparkling streams, serene
mountains. A culture which speaks of the great tradition that they live. Technologically brilliant and with a heart of
gold''.
The angel was quite surprised. “But God, you said everything should be in balance”.
God replied, ''Look at the neighbours I gave them!!''

TOP 9 ONE LINERS ARUN BABU


S5 AE

1. Why do they call it rush hour when nothing moves?


2. A bank is a place that will lend you money if you can prove that you don’t need it.
3. Men with pierced ears are better prepared for marriage, they have experienced pain
and bought jewellery.
4. Money won’t buy friends, but you get a better class of enemies.
5. It’s so simple to be wise. Just think of something stupid to say and then don’t say it.
6. Women don’t want to hear what you think, they want to hear what they think, in a
deeper voice.
7. If your parents never had children, chances are you won’t either.
8. If modern banks are open 365 days a year, 24 hours a day and 7 days a week, why do
the doors have locks on them ?
9. A guy knows he’s in love when he loses interest in his bike for a couple of days.

REMEMBER...

“ Knowledge is a burden,
If it robs you of innocence.
Knowledge is a burden,
If it makes you feel you are special.
Knowledge is a burden,
If it gives you an idea that you are wise.
Knowledge is a burden
If it is not integrated into life.
Knowledge is a burden,
If it does not bring you joy.
Knowledge is a burden,
If it does not set you free.''
