|Abstract||The collapse of a massive star is believed to be the most probable progenitor of a long gamma-ray burst(GRB). Such a star is expected to have its environment modified by the stellar wind. The effect of such a circumstellar wind medium is expected to be seen in the evolution of a GRB afterglow, but so far this has not been conclusively found. We claim that a signature of the transition from wind to constant density medium of the circumburst medium is visible in the afterglow of GRB 050319. Along with the optical observations of the afterglow of GRB 050319, we present a model for the multiband afterglow of GRB 050319. We show that the break seen in the optical light curve at ∼0.02 days could be explained as being due to the transition from wind to constant density medium of the circumburst medium, in which case, to our knowledge, this could be the first ever detection of such a transition at any given frequency band. Detection of such a transition could also serve as confirmation of the massive star collapse scenario for GRB progenitors, independent of supernova signatures.|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDL India) pilot project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDL India is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading Indian languages. It is being arranged to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular form of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examination, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. The pilot project is devising a framework that is being scaled up with respect to content volume and diversity to serve all levels and disciplines of learners. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDL India is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with respective organization from where the contents are sourced and NDL India has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDL India portal up and running smoothly. However, NDL India takes no responsibility for, and will not be liable for, the portal being unavailable due to technical issues or otherwise.
