                Besides  this  a  check  list  is  provided  at  Appendix  1  to  help  concerned  staff  organise  Induction

                3.  Daily Activities

                The  following  activities  during  Induction  Programme  would  fully engage  the  students  for  the entire
                duration of the Programme.

                3.1  Physical Activity

                This would involve a daily routine of physical activity with games and sports. There can be games in
                the evening or at other suitable times according to the local climate. These would help develop team
                work. Each student should pick one game and learn it for the duration of the Induction Programme and
                hopefully, continue with it later.

                3.2  Mentoring

                Mentoring  and  connecting  with  faculty  members  is  the  most  important  part  of  induction. Hopefully,
                it would set up a healthy relationship between the students and the faculty.

                Mentoring takes place in the context and setting of universal human values. It gets the student to explore
                oneself and allows one to experience the joy of learning, stand up to peer pressure, take decisions with
                courage, be aware of relationships, be sensitive to others, understand the role of money in life, and feeling
                of prosperity, etc. Human values as enshrined in our constitution like justice, liberty, equality, fraternity,
                human dignity and the unity and integrity of the Nation can also be part of this discussion. Focus should
                be on inculcating values of equality and responsibility towards one’s fellow citizens of any caste, class
                or creed. During discussion issues and requirements of SC/ST/OBC students should be assessed and
                addressed. Mentor-mentee relationship can help students form a bond with faculty members which can be
                of great help during various tough times in study courses.

                Methodology of mentoring this content is extremely important. It must not be through do’s and don’ts, but
                by getting students to explore and think by engaging them in a dialogue. It is best taught through group
                discussions and real life activities rather than lecturing. The role of group discussions, however, with
                clarity of thought of the teachers cannot be over emphasized. It is essential for giving exposure, guiding
                thoughts, and realizing values. The teachers must come from all the departments rather than from only one
                department or from outside of the Institute.

                The following topics may be discussed during the Mentoring sessions.
