HAPPY NEW YEAR

Copyright@shravancharitymission

It is my the last morning walk in the pandemic year. Year is a set of numbers. It changes from 2020 to 2021 at midnight today. Numbers bring discipline. They give clarity, targets and innumerable missions, without which, man feels, irritable and unfocused, so much so, that he has even numbered, his period of existence, in mother earth. I ask a tree how about the NEW YEAR? Tree replies, ‘How about the coming spring. Spring is nature, nature is God, New-Year is man made that sounds odd.’ I replied, number is kinetic but you are static.’ Tree replied, ‘you have an eye for the kinetic but not for the static.’ Hailing the trees, flows the breeze, when a branch points, at the huge, old, iconic, banyan tree. ‘See how it has changed over the years. It mirrors the history of the civilization, but you don’t have the deep static eyes, to witness it. So let me give you a new set of eyes today.’

‘Your new set of eyes will slow me down.’

‘My new set of eyes will spirit you up.’

In the meanwhile my hour of morning walk was getting over … of course, tied up, to yet another number. The squirrels are busy, birds are occupied and langurs are at play. I am walking out of the garden, indebted to the tree, that blessed me about the number less New Year, the beautiful spring. But why only spring. Dig in deep and you’ll find myriads of numberless, natural NEW YEARS. I now have the static eyes to discern them. And what a great mingle … the number and the nature. A divine brew in the making. Till then HAPPY NEW YEAR.

SUPPORT CHILDREN WITH SPECIAL NEEDS

 

 

RAMANUJAN DIVYANG REHABILITATION & SKILL DEVELOPMENT CENTER- A NOBLE EFFORT

 

My mother’s birthday falls on the 15th of August—that happens to be our Independence Day. She is now no more, but I continue to remember and celebrate her birthday each year in a virtuous manner. And, pursuing the cause as ever, I wanted to do something different again this time, when I came to know that Ramanujan Divyang Rehabilitation & Skill Development Centerlocated in Palwal is celebrating the Independence Day in a noble manner, so I decided to visit them on that day. The center works for children with special needs. And on the occasion of the Independence Day they had planned for a musical extravaganza where all the protagonists were children who were hearing impaired.

The programme commenced with the chief guest Shri Vipul Goyal, a cabinet minister in Government of Haryana, in charge for Industries, performing the flag hoisting in the presence of these noble yet daring children, followed by a spell of bright and colourful cultural programmes of dance and music performed by the same children.

Needless to say it was a tough task for these children to have stepped, toed, and danced to the soothing rhythms of the gentle music that was being played, that provided no hearing stimulus to them, yet the show went off as immaculate.

Apart from the chief guest the programme was also well attended by Shri Tek Chand Sharma M.L.A.; Shri Deepak Mangla—political secretary to the chief minister; Shri Ashok Kumar Sharma—deputy commissioner Palwal; Shri Rahul Sharma—superintendent of police Palwal; Shri Bijender Saroth—President, District Red Cross Society and Shri Jawahar Singh—district president, BJP. As a kind gesture an amount of Rs 50,000 was announced as donation by the honourable minister who was too moved by the spirits of these children.

At this august moment Dr Rajeev Mohan Kukreja—founder Chairman, and Dr Sujata Tripathi—Director of the center were also present.

There isn’t much need for me to describe the function anymore as the pictures will say it all. But what should not go unnoticed is the glimmer of hope in the eyes of both the children and their parents. We all do enough for ourselves and our children but it requires something extra in you to step out and do something for others and especially children with special needs.

Below is a synopsis of what the center does and you could join the cause by donating liberally.

Ramanujan Divyang Rehabilitation & Skill Development Center

 

About Us

 

 

    We are a self sustained educational society of great repute located in one of the backward districts of Southern Haryana, where we are running a ‘facility center’ for children with special needs since 2013. Through this facility center we are imparting specific therapies along with training and education for their overall betterment, as we want all such children to be cognitively and financially self-reliant. And as a first step towards this goal we are providing them with vocational and computer training. Our center, vow’s for good benchmarks and keeping in line with that we have evolved the values of three “S” that we are currently pursuing: a. Self Confidence b. Skill Enhancement c. Self dependent.

 

  1. FACILITY FOR CHILDREN WITH SPECIAL NEEDS

 

The center has identified more than 100 children with special needs from nearby villages & Palwal town, and has started a facility center in order to provide them with therapies, together with training & education. It has two sections namely MR (Mentally Retarded) & HI (Hearing Impaired). And we are happy to inform you that today over 30 such students are training under this noble and demanding mission on a regular basis. The center has also appointed two special educators & a speech therapist registered with RCI having required qualification, along with other support staff.

 

  • VOCATIONAL TRAINING AND SKILL DEVELOPMENT

 

We intend to cover as many Divyang children and adults to bring them under the central umbrella of ‘mainstream earning members’ in the family and society, by imparting vocational & computer training that they are capable of learning. We also intend training rural women who are unable to travel to towns or cities away from their homes. And for the purpose, the center runs the following programs and has simultaneously applied to (NIOS) National Institute of Open Schooling, for affiliation and accreditation of the following courses:

 

  • Cutting & Tailoring
  • Indian Embroidery
  • Basics & Advance Computer Training

 

  • Project ‘SWAVALAMBAN’ — FOR WOMEN & DIVYANGS

 

Rural women and Divyang persons are often exploited since they are financially not independent. Project Swavalamban is a brain child of Ramanujan Foundation to provide employment exclusively to rural women & Divyang

persons. Swavalamban means ‘Self Dependent’ or “Having Freedom of Action or Initiative/Decisions.” Under project ‘Swavalamban’ our center inculcates and develops skills as per capabilities of the learner & subsequently provides them with raw material to work with. Produced artifacts thereafter are retailed in the market under the brand name “Swavalamban”. This makes it convenient for them to work out of their homes and simultaneously facilitates them to even look after their families. Thus: people involved in project Swavalamban will no longer be a liability for their family and society and will earn their livelihood with self respect.

 

Currently on a pilot basis following products are being produced by these people:

 

  1. Hand Knitted Sweaters for ladies, gents, kids and infants.
  2. Embroidered home furnishing such as bed-sheets, pillow covers, table cloths etc.
  3. Handmade dari (rug) from waste wool.

 

BUT WE NEED HELP

 

Most children enrolled in the facility-center are from a very poor background. They are unable to pay any fee for such facilities. Till date Ramanujan Foundation and its team were bearing all the expenses. But due to down turn in education sector leading to severe downturn in our own revenues the foundation for now is finding it difficult to bear the cost of center. Hence the humble request, to all our well wishers, patrons and like-minded people to kindly donate as generously as possible for the noble cause.
