We are ushering a year filled with hope for a better, healthier world. Here at ISC, we are looking forward with excitement towards making it an even more successful academic portal than it already is. Of course, there will be plenty of reward programs, too; but for now, it's time to award five of the several hard-working members with our ISC Star Award!

    2020 Star of the Year - five winners!

    It gives me great honour and a feeling of happiness to make this announcement, of an award that stands head and shoulders above the rest of our awards. This prestigious award is none other than the Star of the Year Award, also generally referred to as the annual ISC Star Award.

    Tony Sir recently said, "We have several active contributors in ISC and we find it very difficult to handpick a couple of them since many of them do contribute equally well every year."

    So the exciting news is that, while in earlier years this award was conferred on two, three or four members, the Webmasters have agreed this year to reward five of those 'several' - hurrah!

    Now, enough of are the 5 ISC Stars of 2020-
    1. Dr. Deepali Gangwar

    This PhD scholar loves contributing to our articles' section on topics related to – what else – PhD admission programs and research internships. Then there are her informative responses to Ask Expert queries and voicing her opinions in active GDs. Let's not forget her enthusiastic participation in creative contests as well. A well-established ISC star, no doubt!

    2. K Mohan

    His absence was immediately felt when he suddenly went off the radar and we gladly welcomed him back home. After all, not a day would go by without at least one thread from this forum ISC star and no discussion would be complete without at least one response from him. As winner #5 once stated, he has a remarkable knack of raising a topic for discussion out of just about thin air - that means anything, so perhaps we'll get a thread soon on thin air too!

    3. Ravi Shankar

    "Boost is the secret of my energy" – this brand could well use our own energetic veteran to endorse their product! Jobs, question papers, schools, colleges, even our new training institutes' section…phew...his indefatigable vigour leaves everyone else breathless. The younger lot will secretly be envying this particular ISC star's spirited vivacity.

    4. Umesh

    With a love for Physics and Maths, he made a few forays in the articles' section. His primary affection, though, is for our vibrant forum. An AE query will also not go unnoticed; in fact, most AE queries will have at least one answer from this ISC star. Just check out his mindboggling earnings from that section alone!

    5. Venkiteswaran

    Quality. This one word neatly sums up everything about the contributions made by this ISC star, not just in the past year but in all the years gone by. In fact, this veteran, like many long-term members, will be completing a decade with us soon. May his thoughtful forum responses and AE answers continue to provide useful guidance to one and all.

    Take a bow, all of you Stars, to a thunderous round of applause from our ISC family. Congratulations!

    The winners will each get a cash award of Rs 1200/-.

    My sincere thanks to ISC for giving me this prestigious star of the year award for the year 2020 and that left me baffled because at present Dr Rao and Umesh are leading in this forum and I am standing at the third place. Nevertheless the award was really amazed me and I could find this award after the hectic day in office and I was so tired that I want to retire to the bed. But somehow the ISC has been in my life for the past eleven years and even absenting one day would be like something missing in life. And my best wishes and congrats to all other winners who were equally famous in their respective sections and impressing us with their superlative performance.

    Congratulation to all winners, all of you are valuable members of ISC. I respect your work and contribution to this site. Wish you all the very best for many more rewards in the future.

  • #720208
    My hearty congratulations to all the five winners of the Star of the year award for the year 2020. It is a good gesture from ISC to encourage ardent members of this site and reward them suitably.

  • #720251
    I feel highly honoured and thank ISC for this annual star award bestowed on me. After my retirement in the year 2012 I started to contribute in various sites as my interests were very much varied and covering wide ranges. During that time I, while working in the internet stumbled upon this site and just went through it and found that there were many sections where my interests coincided. So, in 2016, that journey started and I could sustain it so long and hope to continue till my health and mental faculties cooperate with me. Though I am still working in other sites but the major differentiation that I could observe here in ISC as compared to all other sites is that here, there is a big learning potential as the environment is very conducive and encouraging. That is why I encourage the new members to go through the existing resource here and make that a benchmark for their work. Further, the involvement and interaction of the editors is something which is unique in this site.
    I also take this opportunity to congratulate all my fellow members who have also received this award and hope that they will be showcasing their best of creative potentials in this educational portal in times to come.

    Knowledge is power.
