New Delhi, Sep 30, 2019 –

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday while congratulating the winners of Singapore-India Hackathon in Chennai appreciated an idea given by the students and said that he would discuss the idea with the Speaker as it would help in Parliament.

The idea given by the students involves the monitoring of people sitting through an activity and helps to detect who is paying attention and who is not.

“My young friends here have solved various problems today, I specially liked the solution about cameras to detect who is paying attention, and now what will happen you know? I will talk to my Speaker in Parliament and I am sure it will be very useful to Parliament,” the Prime Minister said as the audience at the prize distribution ceremony of Singapore-India Hackathon at IIT-Madras laughed and clapped.

“I congratulate the winners of the Hackathon and I congratulate each and very young friend assembled here, particularly my student friends. Your willingness to confront challenges and find workable solutions, your energy, your enthusiasm is of much greater value than just winning in competition,” he said.

“For me each of you is a winner, you are a winner because you are not afraid of taking risks. You are committed to your efforts without worrying about the results,” he added.

The Singapore-India Hackathon, an initiative of Prime Minister Narendra Modi — joint international hackathon between India and any other country — started on Saturday and concluded on Monday.

Twenty teams took part in the 36-hour long hackathon. Each team had three students from both countries for exchange of culture and ideas.

Speaking about the event, Anil Sahasrabuddhe, Chairman of All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) said: “Singapore-India hackathon started in 2018. Prime Minister Narendra Modi suggested this idea. He believes solutions for India’s problems will come from young minds.”

Heart failure, or congestive heart failure, occurs when the heart pumps less blood than the body normally needs. For years, doctors have relied heavily on an imaging technique called an echocardiogram to assess whether a patient may be experiencing heart...
