There’s a Buckle Up section that gives details of colleges at various levels in various disciplines. The Vedas and Puranas section gives details on the best books available, and Live It up has informative tips on adventure sports like bungee jumping, river rafting, scuba diving, etc.
The Pot Pourri section has a nice collection of jokes and brainteasers, while Chain Reaction provides students with psychosocial counseling and mental health care tips. It also attempts to solve their day-to-day problems with the help of expert counselors.
