First hand experiences
My profession is medical & I am semi retired at present.
Even though I live thousands of miles away from India I love my motherland India & I shall do my best to serve in my capacity. Ekal vidyalaya is one of the best way to do it.
My first vanyatra was at PALGHAR (MAHARASHTRA) on 2nd April, 05, organised by Shree ANIL KUMAR, Active Karyakarta for Ekal Vidyalay.
We visited one village very much interior from the highway. There were few people like me who were visiting such school. For first time others were active karyakartas & some of the most successful industrialists of Bombay.
As we entered the village we were greeted by folk music-dance & kumkum on our forehead.
We visited one school to see small demonstration of teaching & in next town we saw teachers training course being conducted. Between two main events we were served simple lunch at different houses. All our hosts were very loving & the food was great!
I appreciated Ekal Vidyalaya’s Karyakartas Team work, Cooperation, Discipline, Devotion & the most important attitude of service to mankind. They are instrumental in passing same values to teachers and children.
Bringing villagers adivasies or vanvasies in main stream of Hindu or Sanatan Dharma is one of the best way to keep our India united.
I sincerely thank EKAL VIDYALAYA movement for such a divine goal of our motherland.
