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 chattering...here 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.
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!
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/-.
