The habit of book reading is vanishing in the youth due to many attractions and distractions. To revive this habit again in a big way, Naval Science and Technological Laboratory (NSTL) launched this Societal Project “AHAMAHAMIKA” with the support of Ramnath Secondary School to motivate as many children as possible to read good books and make that practice as their natural and enthusiastic habit.
Ramnath Secondary School affiliated to NSTL educational society organizes in this endeavor two contests every year one for senior children (classes 8 to 10) on Independence day and the other for junior children (classes 5 to 7) on Republic day. The written contest followed by Quiz for first five rankers will be conducted by the AHAMAHAMIKA forum of Scientists of NSTL on the pre-announced books. The first Eighteen rankers are given in each contest prizes worth Rs 5000/. The other qualified students are awarded with AHAMAHAMIKA certificates. Children from many schools are participating very enthusiastically in AHAMAHAMIKA contests.
Other than these two annual contests, AHAMAHAMIKA forum encourages other schools also to organize the contests. For these, the forum conducts only written test and issues to the qualified students the AHAMAHAMIKA certificates.
This Web-site is now launched to reach and to be accessible to students directly. The announcement of contests will be made through this Web site also. Students can get to know their results and see/down load their photographs.
It is also being planned for AHAMAHAMIKA to reach large number of students even outside Visakhapatnam. The help of other DRDO labs also will be sought as necessary in this regard.
The AHAMAHAMIKA Forum arranges for the repeat presentation of Prizes and Certificates from the hands of Celebrities who are visiting Vizag - to motivate the children further. As part of this motivation, President of India Dr Abdul Kalam blessed the top ranking children of first two contests during his visit to NSTL in Feb 2007 and Padmasri SP Balasubramanyam gave away the prizes to the winners of 3rd, 4th and 5th contests during a function he attended in Visakhapatnam. The top ranking Children of 3rd to 11th contests were very fortunate to receive the blessings of Dr Kalam when he visited NSTL in 2009 as former President of India.
