    Welcome to the second issue of The G-Post , a quarterly newsletter of Galgotias

    University. After the successful launch of our

    first issue in January 2012, it undeniably

    excites us to stay all geared up to bring to

    you the second edition which will serve as a

    knowledge capsule that would recharge your

    mind.

    Technology and Creative Arts do not run

    transverse to each other in the present world. Steve Jobs, former

    CEO of Apple Inc., once said, Apple has always been at the intersec-

    tion of technology and liberal arts. And that, many people think, is

    the single greatest factor differentiating Apple from its competitors.

    The technology with which Apple created products such as iPad,

    iPod, Mac and the concepts that had gone behind Genius Bars, WWDC, etc. were all driven by focusing on what resonates with

    humans.

    This is precisely the reason with publication of this newsletter that

    is a humble endeavor on our part to make people aware and known

    with all probity and sincerity about the various activities we and our

    students are engaged in, also gives space to express creative abilities

    of our students and faculty members. Imagination and creativity

    also play a vital role in identifying areas where technological

    developments could bring maximum benefits to the society and

    bridge the huge gap that exists between the haves and the

    have-nots. It is great therefore that our students are getting trained

    early in their career in blending together creative arts and

    technology in their mind.

    The second issue is coming out with more strength and more

    support from the students and my colleagues. I congratulate all

    those whose efforts have helped produce the current issue of The G-

    Post and wish happy reading.
