विस्मृत करने वाला जवाब

क्या खाया…..कुछ नहीं मैम

कहते हैं जिम्मेदारियों की एक उम्र होती है लेकिन गरीबी और भूख का क्या जो किसी बात का लिहाज नहीं करती। जिस उम्र में खेलना और खाना जीवन का एकमात्र लक्ष्य होता है उस उम्र में बहुत ऐसे मासूम हैं जो घर की जिम्मेदारियों का वहन करने के लिए बाध्य हैं। दो वक्त की रोटी भी इन्हें नसीब नहीं होती और अगर होती भी है तो इसके लिए उन्हें काफी मशक्कत करनी पड़ती है। आइए ऐसे ही कुछ नन्हें सितारों की आपबीती से आपको रूबरू कराते हैं जो जोश और जज्बे से हर मुसीबत को दरकिनार करते आगे बढ़ रहे हैं। पढ़िए… सोचिए और एक छोटा सा कदम बढ़ाइए ताकि भारत का यह भविष्य अपनी मूलभूत जरूरतें पूरी कर सके जो इसका मूलभूत अधिकार है।

तेरह साल की नन्दिनी से जब मैंने बातों बातों में पूछा कि अच्छा बताओ आज क्या खाया तो उसने थोड़ा ठहरकर सकुचाते हुए बोला… कुछ नहीं मैम। घर में कुछ था ही नहीं जो खाकर आती। मैं अवाक थी… घड़ी में चार बजने को थे और इस मासूम का पेट बिल्कुल खाली। बावजूद इसके उसके चेहरे पर इसका कोई नामों निशां नहीं। मैं भावनाओं के भंवर में घिर गई लेकिन वह अपनी मुस्कुराहट के साथ एक बार फिर किताबों से जुड़ गई। आगे पता चला यह सिर्फ आज का ही नहीं उसका रोजाना का यही हाल है। इसी बीच कक्षा में 98 प्रतिशत अंक हासिल करने वाली सिमरन ने बताया कि वह आज चावल खाकर आई है क्योंकि खाने के लिए इसके अलावा उसके पास कुछ नहीं था। आठ साल की गज़ल ने कहा कि उसे तो घर का काम करते-करते इतना समय निकल जाता है कि खाने का समय ही नहीं मिलता। 12 साल का होनहार राज शाम में घर का खाना बर्तन खुद ही करता है क्योंकि उसकी मां को काम से घर लौटने में देर हो जाती है। मधु और अमृता पिता के डर से यहां साढ़े तीन बजे की ऑनलाइन क्लास नहीं कर पाती क्योंकि घर जाकर उन्हें बर्तन साफ करना और रोटी बनाना होता है। प्रियांशु ने यहां आना ना जाने कब का बंद कर दिया क्योंकि उसे घर की आर्थिक मदद के लिए फैक्टरी जाना होता है….
ये तो सिर्फ महज चंद उदाहरण हैं। ना जाने ऐसे कितने ही किस्से उस दिन मेरे कानों से होकर दिल को झकझोर गए। मैं कुछ देर के लिए शून्य हो गई। आखिर हम अपनी विलासिता में कहां रमे हैं जो इन नन्हें मासूमों की मूल जरूरतें भी पूरा नहीं करा पा रहें हैं जिन्हें न तो हमसे कोई शिकायत है और ना ही अपनी ज़िन्दगी से कोई गिला…इनका मकसद केवल पढ़ लिखकर बड़ा आदमी बनना है।

One Small Step is Giant Leap for the Mankind

“But, I have Promises to Keep,
And Miles to Go Before I Sleep,
Miles to Go Before I Sleep”
“India Must Revamp its Present Education System In Order to Cater to the 21st Century Needs”
Educational Reforms: Need of the Hour

Thanks to the Chinese virus that the whole world has turned its attention to the India and its age-oldYoga tradition. In the wake of the ongoing Corona crisis that has made super powers of the world go down on its knees, India is combating valiantly against the deadly virus embracing and finding solace in Yoga. Finally, Yoga has got its long overdue and India must cease this opportunity to reclaim its fading glory as “Vishwa Guru” also. If India really wants to call shots on international matters it needs to address the deterrents that are acting as roadblocks preventing India from joining the elite club of super powers of the world.

The current education system is one of the weakest spots denting India’s global image as India continues to follow colonial time system that needs to be rejigged and transformed that is best suited to cater to the 21st century needs. India must formulate reforms and policies that are in sync with the current requirements imbibing the features of the countries that boasts of having best educational policies currently. The need of the hour is that India must create an educational ecosystem that is based on pragmatism, flexibility, innovation and holistic approach altogether where three hours exam and afterwards judging student’s potential based on the performance in the exam should be immediately replaced by far more practical reforms.

Children are like flowers of the garden that are though delicate but if nourished and groomed properly will bloom and spread their fragrance everywhere. In order to tap their potential copiously we need to resurrect and restrengthen and ditch the myopic approach towards addressing the loopholes ingrained in our education system.
The radical changes need to be carried out from the grass root level making education not a privilegefor the few but, ensure equitable accessibility of quality education at all levels of schooling from pre- primary school to grade 12. Discrimination of students on the basis of their economical backgrounds should be discouraged outrightly and talent should be the only sole criteria to enroll students in schools.

We must applaud Delhi government’s perceptive decision to bring overwhelming changes with respect to the despicable condition of the government schools in Delhi. Making it as one of the top priorities of the government, chief minister fired all the cylinders going all out to improve the overall infrastructure, bringing best faculties on board to shape the future of the students, clubbing technology and education together and most importantly, making education absolutely free that is indeed an audacious move. Unless we don’t make education absolutely free and accessible for students coming from the weaker sections of the society, no country as the matter of the fact can achieve inclusive growth.

Other states also must follow the suit if we really honest about eliminating disparity widely prevalent in the education sector. Although, we have to go a long way before making India education hub of the world but, we must remember the fact that “One Small Step is Giant Leap for the Mankind”.

The Joy of Being Santa Clause in Someone’s Life

December, the month of festivities and fervor kicked -off with much pomp and anticipation around the globe and people worldwide rung up “Christmas Day” partying hard and gifting their beloveds and friends the most expensive gifts in a bid to flaunt and keep their stature intact altogether. Obviously, the festive spirit seems to have taken everyone in its grip and with new year around the corner people have already swung into the festive mode.

But let’s press the pause button and take few minutes of your precious time and think about those millions of impoverished children out there who are even struggling to get two square meals but what a paradox? that there are many who superfluously splurging huge money in the name of celebrating the festivals. In retrospect, we all will agree that the true essence of celebrating any festival is to bring the smile on the faces of the needful and shower unconditional love and obviously the unequivocal happiness and joy we receive in return give us unparalleled serenity.

The time is ripe to cease the opportunity and make the most of it by becoming Santa Clause in someone’s life and brush their empty canvas like life with colors of rainbow. Even a small gesture of kindness can go a long way in bringing positive changes in their lives and as anticipated they will definitely cherish these great moments for their lifetime. Sponsoring the fees of at least onestudent or even for that matter donating stationery items and books or cloths will although not cost much but, will surely transform the lives of the several destitute kidsand will give us happiness and gratification of a lifetime.

Let’s join hands with Noida-based “GoodWorks” Trust in their tireless endeavor to transform the lives of the thousand children who need our impeccable support, love, care and patronage.

But everything that glitters is not gold as the latest revealed data paints a very gloomy and contrasting picture of the Country. Although, the premier engineering, medical and management institutes from India are ranked among top notch institutes globally but such elite institutes are like small drops in ocean and couldn’t cater to the need of the entire youth population as despite all brouhaha and sloganeering India lags far behind other developed economies when it comes to producing skilled workforce.

Best NGO in Noida for Education

There is no bone of contention that India is the country of vast contradictions;On one hand India is producing crème de la crème dynamic young work force be it in the field of technology, science, medical or academics whereas on the other hand there are millions of underprivileged children who are even deprived of their basic right” Right to Education” that can empower them to turn around their lives and make noteworthy contributions in the country’s socio-economic growth altogether. Despite the fact that when it comes to quality higher education system globally; India is although placed third in the global index only next to China and USA and is also fast emerging as the education hub of the world but, in the wake of ground realities, we need to stop looking at the current situation with the rose-tinted glass as without ado, lack of education is the root cause of poverty and no country in the world can achieve inclusive and sustainable economic growth unless its entire population has impartial and equal access to the education.

The “GoodWorks” trust; leading NGO in Noida in fine tune with the government’s mission of “education to all”are pushing all the boundaries and working zealously round the clock transforming the lives of socially marginalized children by enrolling them successfully in schools where they get free quality education that enable and groom them to become well equipped and self- reliant in their respective lives.Noida based NGO “GoodWorks “trust over the years has become the hallmark of sheer commitment and devotionas far as welfare of the underprivileged children in Noida is concerned. The NGO has been tirelessly working towards upliftment of the underprivileged children overcoming all the barriers and challenges vis a vis with regards to facing resistance from the parents who were initially reluctant in sending their children to schools as they fear of losing the earning members. As the fact of the matter, ignorant parents unaware of the importance of the education as a powerful weapon in breaking the intergenerational cycle of poverty; ingenuously pushtheir children into the child labour in a bid to get some financial support while dealing with grave issue of poverty.

But, thanks to the“GoodWorks”trust; undisputedly being best NGO in Noida not succumbing to the pressures and unwearyingly coaxing parents to send their kids to school to avail free education as it paves the way for the better and promising future ahead.

Educational NGO in Noida like “GoodWorks” trust is stepping up efforts in ensuring that girls are motivated to join schools and at least complete their formal education in a happy conducive environment.If a girl has an access to the quality education then it will not only empower herbut, will also transform societies, communities and countries at large and to top that it also serves as stepping stones for the stable and resilient society.
The “GoodWorks” trust has not just stopped on providing free quality education to the underprivileged children but, the NGO has also launched string of skill development programs where students undertake vocational trainings that guarantee them sustainable livelihood and augment earning capabilities of the marginalized section of the society.

The government, corporates and the individuals need to come together to lend their helping hands to ensure that all welfare programs kicked off for the well-being of the underprivileged children shouldn’t hit upon the stumbling blocks. Generous donations by the individuals and affluent people will definitelygo a long way in grooming the socially marginalized children who are like rough diamonds and if groomed and honed appropriately thenthey will shine and will become productive economically to eradicate poverty.

The NGOs in Noida have also been trying to bridge the educational gap that has been fast widening as it’s no secret that girls drop out has been highest in India due to early marriage of girls, lack of safety in schools, andage-old traditional belief system that girls should better stay at homes helping in household chores and sibling care. Let’ pledge together to lay foundation for the better tomorrow by making better today.
