|Abstract||We report multi-colour optical monitoring of the intra-day variable blazar S5 0716+71 with a dense temporal coverage over a total duration of 4 weeks in February/March 1994. Four filters (BV Johnson and RI Cousins) were used on a majority of the nights. The lightcurves of the blazar were derived relative to two comparison stars present on the CCD frames. Intensity variations of ≥ 0.05 mag from night-to-night were observed in half the cases and a good correlation between the light curves in the different passbands was noticed (as also for the observed intra-night variations). There seems to beno correlation between flux and optical spectral index of the blazar. In all, three prominent events of intra-night variability were detected, each with a rate of ≥ 0.1 mag per hour, lasting for at least 3 hours. Each of these flaring segments of the blazar light curves can be well fitted with an exponential intensity profile whose rate of variation is essentially the same for all the passbands. No clear event of ultra-rapid fluctuations of the blazar on time scale ≤ 1 hour was detected in these multi-colour data. Present observations have been carried out during a low brightness level of the blazar and they have no large amplitude variable events.|

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.
