Shyam, The idea is too good and we can move forward with it. We can plan for
a meeting on Monday itself.

I have one suggestion. The seminars/workshops/discussions, whatever it is,
should be done for the entire class in each department. We can decide the
topics in regular meetings. In IT department we have already planned for a
series of seminars/workshops on "Free Software tools" for the fourth
semester students. Please find the topics  below and please give your inputs
on this. Please add more topics here in this mail thread itself.

If students are familiarized with the tools available for them it won't be
difficult for them to directly jump into real world projects.

   GNU/Linux Installation (Debian)

   Installaing packages in Debian (Synaptic Package Manager)

   Linux booting process in Detail

*2. Tools*

*3. Networking*
