On concluding day of the historic 1930 Salt Satyagraha March, Team National Salt Satyagraha Memorial (NSSM) Project announced the launch of its official website: www.dandimemorial.in showcasing the various aspects of the project in great detail. The design team took a completely different approach to website designing considering the nature of the project and its sanctity. All efforts were made to ensure that Memorial website serves its purpose of communicating with its visitors in the most effective manner - providing the most authentic information. The team has maintained the appearance simple with minimal design elements and limited usage of colours - mainly Dusty Brown representing the dusty roads the Marchers had to cover in their historic march in 1930.

Please visit the website: www.dandimemorial.in and email us your comments on the content, missing links and information at info@dandimemorial.in so that we improve the site by making necessary changes. A good website is the one that evolves over a period of time. 

Team National Salt Satyagraha Memorial (NSSM) Project thank each one of you for supporting the initiative, endorsed by the Ministry of Culture, Government of India and advised by a High Level Dandi Memorial Committee (HLDMC) with IIT Bombay as a Design Coordination Agency.

20th June 2016, Day 2 of Design Degree Show 2016
The fascinating topics covered by our Guest speakers are always a big draw at the design and degree show. This year it was Ajay Sharma (Assistant General Manager, Tata Motors), Poornima Phaltankar (cofounder, popup technologies), Vijaybahu Joshi (Assistant Vice President, Jio Infocomm), Noopur Datye (Ek Type) and Deepa Balsaver (illustrator, story teller) who held us in thrall. Our own Proffessors Prof. Jayesh Pillai and Prof. B.K Chakravarthy were also among the speakers for the day.
But the most awaited event was the award ceremony. Charting new depths was Industrial design Winner Sanket Pai's Laproscopic Device Design - that eases surgeon's discomfort while conducting this lengthy procedure. Riding to victory from Mobility design, was Nikhil KS, with his Bamboo Bicycle Design for children. From Interaction Design, it was Prasad B who hit the right keys. His predictive text input method for Swarachakra, has eased marathi text input for the over 10 lakh users who have downloaded this popular application. Visual Communication student Nilmani Kumar made Reel impact. His Movie, ''Taleeem'', studied weaver communities and education in Jharkhand while insight-fully exploring education's real meaning. Animation design's Ronney Devassia hit gold with his Kaakkapponnu.The movie retells an old Jataka tale in the context of Kerala.

Steered by Prof. Lance Rake - The Bamboo Bike Workshop - allowed 10 students to create all new bamboo bicycles from old metal ones. Centred around our Bamboo Studio, the student's work systematically invaded all our other labs. The metal Studio had them dismantling and cutting  up their old frames. While the plastic and metal studios's long tables hosted the final assemblies. The frames were then coloured in our Paint Studio. All this would have been impossible without the help of Prof. Chakravarthy. The Workshop, apart from being a whole lot of fun, allowed the students to explore and manipulate Bamboo's versatility and strength, while getting familiar with the many tools and processes that could be used on it.
