The Shaastra team has been trying to get me to speak at their event
for many years. This year I wanted to make it, and as part of the
Hackfest at Shaastra 2011 [1], September 28 to October 2, 2011 at
IIT-Madras [2], Chennai, I had presented the talk on
"i-want-2-do-project. tell-me-wat-2-do" [3].

Most of the students were interested in participating in the Google
Summer of Code program. I was also able to meet and talk with past
Google Summer of Code students, who had already been introduced to
this presentation.

I visited the IITM Research Expo at the K V grounds on campus where
students had presented their research work. There were quite a few
interesting papers on MEMS [4]. I also attended the Paper and Poster
presentation by students at the IITM Research Park [5].

Few pictures taken at the event are available [6].
