It is also a special day when we pay special tribute and homage to our veteran leaders and freedom fighters that battled in the past for India’s independence from the decadent British rule and have given us this freedom.
The time is a period when all the Major Government buildings in India are enlightened with strings of the tricolor alongside lights from Major Offices and structures. Print broadcast and web media may have special programs on India’s Independence Day and even articles to publicize. Movies about India’s independence fighters are likewise broadcasted on television. We keenly look forward for the Honorable President to convey his patriotic speech to the nation on the eve of India’s Independence Day. The Day is also special as India’s Prime Minister shall unfurl India’s national flag and additionally hold an Independence Day special speech. Cultural projects and flag hoisting functions will be held at all cities including schools and universities. People go through the day with friends or relatives. We should remember the early rebellion South Indian rulers like Puli Thevar, Hyder Ali, Tipu Sultan, Pazhassi Raja, Rani Velu Nachiyar, Veerapandiya Kattabomman, Dheeran Chinnamalai, Maruthu Pandiyar, etc. who opposed the British rule and fought several wars in this regard which caused the silent rebellion to stand up for injustice.
The Indian Independence Movement was based on two important theories:
Satyagraha was an ethical and political philosophy that stressed on non-violent protest and peaceful civil disobedience. This theory was set up to resist British rule in India. The second theory, Swaraj meaning self-rule, was the belief held by most Indians that their country functions efficiently without the British and would rule itself. Both of these principles encouraged India’s people to peacefully dismiss British legislation and also to boycott British goods and services. No, any Indian independence leader personified these principles greater than Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (1869 -1948) himself.
This year in 2019, India will celebrate its 73rd independence day with pomp and gaiety. The spirit of enthusiasm is energized by organizing special programs like Rally, Marches, Cultural Programs and much more. As always India Independence 2019 will be celebrated at the Red Fort. This is the schedule for Independence Day 2019 at the Red Fort hoisted by the Prime Minister, President, Armed and Naval Forces, Air Force and other higher cadet position officers.
• The President of India will address the country at 7:00 p.m on August 14, 2019.
• Next morning on 15th August at around 7:30 am, India’s Prime Minister will hoist the National Flag at the Red Fort.
• The National Anthem will be sung on this national event “Jana Gana Mana” . The official time to sing the anthem is 52 seconds.
• There will be a 21-cannon salute to pay respect to freedom fighters at the Red Fort.
• Prime Minister will address the country.
• There will be a military march followed by a closing ceremony.
The Indian Independence Day is an Important Date for many other Countries as they celebrate their Independence Day on the 15th of August, the same day India got its independence.
- Republic of Congo – The Republic of Congo celebrates Congolese National Day on 15th August. It’s the day when the country got Independence from France on August 15, 1960.
- Korea – Korea celebrates its Independence Day on August 15th marking the day in 1945 when it got independence from Japanese colonization rule.
- Bahrain – 15th August also marks the declaration of independence of Bahrain
- Liechtenstein – Liechtenstein the sixth smallest nation in the world, also celebrates its Independence on the same date India celebrates its Independence Day. 15th August in Liechtenstein is celebrated to commemorate the country’s freedom from the German Rule in 1866.
Having said this Amstar Technologies would like to thank and congratulate all its stakeholders, customers, employees and well wishers and passes a pledge of creating a positive revolution in the economy through their valuable commitment at work for a better tomorrow.
Happy India Independence Day!

Best, Management at Amstar Technologies
We just wrapped up our 14th Anniversary on 5th July 2019 at our Office which translates to 14 years of service in the market. This was a close knit event for employees and our well wishers to bond and reminisce about how the company has progressed in the last 14 years and also wish them for more success and unparalleled growth ahead.
We were happy to take a deep dive into how have we performed in marketing the latest IBM and non IBM Open Source technologies along with our CSR visits, events participated etc via the annual report reading. Most importantly we conducted a Pooja which goes to show that Faith is a bigger element than equity in today’s scenario as that’s what is moving the world via humans read as employees in present context. Our Director Mr. Joseph Jayakumar also in his director’s message briefed about hands-on workshops, sessions and experiential demo creations which shall be conducted to the teams at Amstar which shall be our area of impetus in the future for better brand building as a global player. We are lucky to have the best of visionary leadership of Mr. Joseph Jayakumar, Mr. Kalyan, Mr. Venkat Rao who have been instrumental in meeting, connecting and interacting with other prominent thought leaders in the corporate and making Amstar stand on ‘Terra Firma’. This move is creating revolutions in the consulting and skilling industry at large. For the employees and stakeholders at large, the 14th Anniversary was a blessing in disguise as they were - Able to discover best practices for taking business to the next level ahead by listening to the Annual Report and Director’s Speech. - Obtain relevant information for skill enhancement in the area of emerging technologies and how they can attend hands-on workshops by following an ‘Open Door’ policy. - Able to meet and interact with other people who have helped Amstar to grow this level because of their contributions. Mr. Joseph Jayakumar also stressed on how stepping into the 14th Anniversary translates to 14 years of existence in the tough market which means a lot when fact check is done from a societal, stakeholder and employee perspective. His emphasis was also on ‘Employee Stakeholdership’ wherein he quoted that ‘While success for any enterprise is largely dependent on how the employees contribute he ensures that Amstar does not view them merely as money generating machines and ensures that Amstar follows a very stringent hiring mechanism because ethics and values are very important for overall development of an individual. Only then can we have benchmarks in producing competitive, qualitative and satisfying experience for our customers and no one can stop us at any instance in today’s hyper customer market where robotics, automation and digitization have taken over industries globally but ethics is being corroded daily. Also by the year 2030 India will have a high population of young generation adults so an impetus should be created for inculcating integrity, education and tacit moral values in them leading to an overall social development and are partnered for growth ahead with a strong headcount in the years to come in a phase wise manner. There comes an element of curiosity and euphoria to our mind as we take a rain check about learning’s, developments at our 14th Anniversary which we are keen to share - The 3 E’s (Environment, Education and E-learning) will be the need of the hour in near future. - Employees have to adapt to the constant changes around. They need to shift from a ‘Growth Mindset’ to a ‘CAT mindset’ i.e. Cope, Adjust and Transform mindset to be prepared for massive technology disruption ahead. - The key to successfully dealing with change in the 21st century is to implement adaptive mindsets. - Quality, Accountability, Flexibility and Transparency are 4 key pillars to consider when evaluating technology needs. - Utilize Technology to create more meaningful experiences - It’s OK to fail but never Repeat the mistake again - Today’s Experience is Tomorrow’s Success story - Every person is equally treated at work. There is no Hierarchy - Your Diary Documentations Defines your Success. - It’s OK to be foolish by asking than repenting later and not knowing about it at all. - Along with Success come challenges- How do you solve them?

Amstar technologies integrate with IBM on their ‘India Developer Champions’ campaign post their successful participation at ‘IBM Developer Day’ conference. The conference was held at Taj Vivanta on 14th March 2019.
Amstar Technologies is an IBM business Partner and Training Sales and Delivery Partner via Arrow ECS. They were at the recently concluded IBM Developer Day for 2 years in a row.
The latest open source technologies in discussion included Cloud, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Blockchain, Data & Analytics and Quantum. There were also talks on other open source technologies from IBM at the day-long event.
The event was designed exclusively for developers and their skill enhancement. Amstar felt that it has a lot of niche opportunities on e-learning, reskilling pedagogy as it prides itself as a pioneer via its cost effective, cutting edge e-learning solutions. IBM also went a step ahead and tied up with NASSCOM who were eager to announce their ‘India Developer Champions’. This is a new multi-year program campaign that shall recognize developer contributions to the open source community. Amstar Technologies will also be initiating talks with NASSCOM to provide unhindered assistance to developer community at large in days ahead to come.
While Ginni Rometty, president and CEO, IBM in her opening keynote reaffirmed on IBM’s commitment to open source technologies and ecosystem in her three guiding principles:
1. Open Governance
2. Open Collaboration
3. Giving back to the open source community
This move will inspire thousands of nominations from individual developers, as well as those from enterprises and startups to join the IBM Bandwagon. This will create a single, unified platform to acknowledge outstanding developers who are the key driving force behind groundbreaking technologies that are impacting millions of lives positively globally.
While Developers are indigenous engines of innovation in business and society, IBM went a step ahead and created this initiative. We are glad to partner with them on this noble initiative adds Mr. Joseph Jayakumar, Director Amstar Technologies.
Why this move?
Bob Lord, IBM Senior Vice President, Cognitive Applications and Developer Ecosystems adds that IBM wants to create a spotlight on the 23+ million developers, data scientists working across industries and through their creativity and skill, are making a real difference to society.
The IBM Developer Champions program will help shine a light on the significant contributions coming from open source developers in India – a massively-important untapped market.
IBM also announced a lot of niche programs for developers and the tech ecosystem like,
- Girls of Code –IBM announced their collaboration with state governments across India to prepare 200,000+ girls and women in government schools over the next three years for “new collar” jobs. The ‘Girls of Code’ campaign will provide 50,000+ top-performing female students a unique opportunity to participate in coding challenges and ‘Code and Response’ hackathons conducted by IBM globally.
- Code and Response – In its first year of Code and Response, IBM announced that it will pilot Project Owl, the winning solution from Call for Code 2018, in disaster-struck regions like Kerala, Puerto Rico, North Carolina and Osaka. IBM’s Code and Response is a $25+ million, 4 year global deployment initiative to put open source technologies developed as part of coding challenges such as Call for Code in the communities where they are needed in a crisis.
- Call for Code – While this is new the registrations for ‘2019 Round of the Call for Code Global Challenge’ are still open. The Call for Code campaign by IBM is the largest and most ambitious effort which seeks to bringing start-up, academic and enterprise developers under one platform. They aim to leverage cloud, data and AI to develop technologies that improve health and community well-being for those impacted by natural disasters.
Lastly we are thankful to IBM for conducting a niche successful event like this. These significant contributions will definitely boost the morale of open source developers in India, a important market and we are here to assist the developer in his lifecycle journey adds Kalyan, IT module lead at Amstar Technologies which has trained more than 3600+ customers globally till date.
