With the objective of giving back to the society, students from the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras (IIT M) have started a social initiative ‘computer literacy for all’ where students will donate old computers given by residents of the institute to the government schools. This initiative is a part of Shaastra, the annual tech festival of IIT M which receives a footfall of over 20,000 people every year.

The theme for the four-day tech fest beginning on January 4 is ‘Breaking Boundaries’. Apart from the major attractions every year like airshow, robowars, symposium, hackfest and lecture series, this year Shaastra will have a pan IIT research expo, a platform to showcase research undertaken by students across all IITs and research confluence which will have panel discussions and lectures by eminent speakers from the industry and academia. A total of 17 eminent speakers from India and abroad are expected to deliver lectures during the four day showcase event of IIT Madras.
