Jalandhar August 23 (Jaswinder Singh Azad)- Under the able guidance of Principal Prof. Dr. (Mrs.) Ajay Sareen, four students of HMV have been selected for Grand Finale of Smart India Hackathon-2022. The team Evolving buds from HMV consisting of Mehak, Depaali, Palak and Harshita prepared a prototype of My Digi Yatra in which they developed a program for connecting all the important pilgrimages of India. They worked on the idea of Virtual Pilgrimage experience to be an alternative to travel that is perfect for those who are unable to leave their home, or even for those who are just looking for a Spiritual Journey.
This idea will benefit the senior citizens who can visit these sites using their phones. The user can visit the pilgrimages of India from anywhere at any time. In COVID times, people could not reach their favorite pilgrimages they are devoted towards. In addition Pilgrimages also suffer financially. In addition disabled or old devotees are not able to visit the pilgrimages.
The students of HMV developed a single virtual platform
The students of HMV developed a single virtual platform having live 360 visuals of famous pilgrimages of India to help these devotees. Their main objective was to bring forward the culture of India to the rest of the world and to make sure users stay emotionally connected with their deity even in situations like COVID induced lockdown.
Principal Dr. Ajay Sareen congratulated the students , their Nodal Officer Dr. Anjana Bhatia, Dean, Innovations and Research, mentors, Mr. Ashish Chadha and Mr. Rishabh Dhir and gave them best wishes for the future endeavors. Principal Dr. Ajay Sareen further mentioned that HMV has always supported innovations and entrepreneurship amongst students.
