Dhrupad is the most ancient form of Hindustanic classical music that has survived until today in its original form. The nature of Dhrupad is spiritual and its research goes beyond entertaining, generating peaceful and contemplation feelings to who listens carefully. The word Dhrupad comes from dhruva, ‘firm evening star’ and pada, which literally means ‘step’, ‘track’ or ‘trace’ and, in this case, it makes reference to a kind of verse.
The Gundecha Brothers are within the best and most active exponents of Dhrupad singing, the most ancient vocal genre of classical Indian music. They have organised several international tours visiting more than 25 countries and counts on more than 36 published albums by national and international record labels. The Gundecha Brothers received the PadmaShri in 2012, one of the highest awards given by the Government of India, for its contribution to classical music of their country.
For more than 10 years, this group has been at the front of the Dhrupad Sansthan, a Superior Music school in Bhopal (India) which education is based on the old traditional relation master-disciple (guru-shishya). This school welcomes Indi students and students from more than 20 countries around the world, it has been declared Intangible Cultural Heritage by the UNESCO. The significance of the Gundecha Brothers in relation to the Dhrupad and to the classical Indian music, is not only that they made this genre accessible and popular at a world-wide scale, but they also offer a high level of artistic quality during their performances.

The practical coursework for Software Technology, a course taught by assoc. prof. Viljan Mahnič, PhD, requires students to (almost) develop a real project based on actual requirements of the buyer. Once again this year, the company IT Klinika d.o.o. collaborated and prepared specification requirements for the “Online Sales Services” project. Students were given an initial list of requirements in the form of user stories and then developed the entire project using Scrum methodology. 6 groups of four persons each participated in the project and the best group received tablets as their award from the IT Klinika d.o.o. company.
