How do we work on the projects?
Our highest priority is to satisfy the client through early and continuous delivery of valuable projects.
- love welcoming changing requirements, even late in the project development. Processes that we design and implement do harness change for the client's competitive advantage.
- keep increasing the efficiency of the working mechanism frequently, with a preference for the shorter timescale.
- insist that end-users, the client, team members, project managers and project developers to work together daily throughout the project.
- build projects around motivated and responsible individuals, develop them the environment and make available the support they need, and trust them to get the job done.
- understand that the most efficient and effective method of conveying information to and within a development team is the face-to-face conversation in world languages that convey positive passion and calculated rationality.
- know that working mechanism is the primary measure of progress.
- focus on projects and processes that promote sustainable development. The sponsors, developers, and users should be able to maintain consistency.
- provide continuous attention to technical excellence and humane expertise along with good design to enhance the overall value of our projects.
- strive for simplicity. For us, it is the art of maximizing the amount of work-not-required.
- believe that the best requirements, process management and design mechanisms emerge from self-organizing teams.
- make the teams reflect on how to make the projects much more effective at regular intervals and then fine-tune and adjust the project mechanism accordingly.
Our Professional Journey
This is our "Projects" Page - rather more of Memories in snaps. Please take note - we worked first and developed this website much later. So this would not appear like a social media feed.
It's a great pleasure to showcase these for visitors to understand the context and background of our worship i.e., our work.
Since the Covid-19 advent, we really do miss reaching & teaching in-person, being among the students.
Yet, being online has brought us nearer to many more students from all over India - both cerebrally and spiritually.
A few memorable and motivating moments in our lives as teachers, as consultants...

Institute of Japanese Language and Culture,
Centurion University of Technology & Management, Bhubaneswar, Odisha
Our most cherished project !
Echenar Consultants initiated this with CUTM for two reasons.
First, our basic principles resonated with founder Prof Muktikanta Mishra and Team Gram Tarang.
Second, it was something novel in a region where foreign language education is the rarity of rarity.
It started off very well in January 2019 and became one of the most unusual places on the campus.
Anybody could learn irrespective of educational background and stream; Japanese movies and music were part of the syllabus; Students were not only permitted but also encouraged to use mobile phones in the classroom - for looking up Japanese references, typing in Japanese scripts, using dictionary apps.
They were even introduced and taught to cook Japanese recipes.
There were 200+ students enrolled and attending classes regularly, learning reading, writing, listening and speaking. To be precise - what they actually needed in real life and professional situations.
A dedicated few were up for JLPT N4 as well and ready to travel to Pune. As of August 2021, there is still no examination centre in Odisha.
We had to end the beautiful journey abruptly in March 2020...covid pandemic struck it way too hard.

A day when students learn how to use chopsticks
Learning a foreign language is not limited to words and grammar. The small nuances are very much needed to understand the culture as well. We take care of that.
East Asian Food Culture is enjoyed best with practical knowledge of Chopsticks. A day in our class when they tried to use them hands on.
It was a fun day indeed !
Our students win the the South Asian Japanese Short Film Contest
Three of our students from Institute of Japanese Language and Culture, Bhubaneswar created a short film on City of Bhubaneswar and participated in the South Asian Japanese Short Film Contest.
They did pretty amazing, everything on their own and hit the mark.
Ms Parbeen, Mr Abhishek and Mr Harshawardhan take you to on a quick ride of Bhubaneswar, in Japanese language.
