Wangchuk was convinced that the high failure rate signified the failure of the system, and not the students.

No wonder Wangchuk is today regarded as one of India’s foremost technological and educational innovators.  But now Wangchuk is on to his next project, a unique venture called the Ladakh Alternative University.

A month has elapsed ever since demonetisation of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 currency notes was introduced but the district is yet to receive new Rs 500 currency notes. This was discussed during the District Development Co-ordination and Monitoring Committee (Disha) meeting chaired by MPRDhruvanarayan here on Saturday. Dhruvanarayan said the district received only Rs 2,000 currency notes but no new Rs 500 notes had been made available. "People are struggling to get smaller denomination currency.

He said officials should complete works on the Bahugrama drinking water project at the earliest. District SC/STWelfare Officer Saraswathi said water was scarce in Mendare ...
