SJK (T) Kangkar beat over 101 schools to emerge as champions in the robotics competition. It also got fourth place in another event.

“With their win, the pupils will proceed to take part in the national- level competition,” said headmaster Mayachandran Subramaniam.

The challenge was part of a science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) event which included the Young Innovators Fair, Bridge Building Competition and STEM Decathlon Challenge. The competition included all the schools in the state.

> Manufacturers in India have got the domestic mobile phone market wrapped up tight, with 97% of those used in the country made locally, the daily also reported.

India’s state minister Rajeev Chandrasekhar revealed the statistics during a speech at the opening of a Taiwanese electronics plant Chengalpattu in Chennai recently.

He claimed that when Prime Minister Narendra Modi took office in 2014, 90% of the mobile phones used in the country were imported but in just eight years, this was no longer the case.
