There aren’t as many ranks as there are rankings now; an oft-repeated exercise that often leaves stakeholders bewildered and confused – intentionally or unintentionally, that is! But that is not to say that rankings are an exercise in futility or all rankings are fake or even all are real. The subject matter, all the more, confuses those who carry out rankings or even ones who read them.That is one reason why rankings that are meant to guide stakeholders often end up misguiding them. Those, you wonder, who shouldn’t be at the top are right there and the ones that should rightfully be, are not there at all.

Two young engineering students are making robotics more accessible to enthusiasts across the country
A spartan apartment at a nondescript housing society in Pashan is filled with robots of all shapes and sizes. Among the curious looking machines are two robotic hands that mimic the movement of a human body and a large quadcopter that looks as if it’s ready to fly. This is the working space of College of Engineering, Pune (CoEP) alumni Amol Gulhane and Pratik Pravin Deshmukh — the 20-something founders of Robolab, a venture that’s making robotics accessible to the masses by building robotics labs across the country.

Three alumni of the College of Engineering, Pune have set up their own company, despite getting job offers worth Rs 9 to 10 lacks per annum.
Sarang Kamble, 23, Pratik Deshmukh, 23, and Amol Gulhane, 24, started their own company ‘Robolab’ which sets up robotic laboratories across colleges in India.
As only 10 to 15 colleges in India have separate robotics laboratory, the group decided to start a company which provides basic equipments for interested colleges. “We thought over business ideas related to robotics because it is a growing field in the country. There are many colleges in India which do not have a proper robotics lab; they use old equipments and theories which discourage students to opt for robotics and automation,” explained Gulhane.
