JNV Katihar: A Call for Coordinators!

Posted by Rewa Smriti on June 22, 2012

Dear Alumni of JNVKatihar,

We are sure each one of us has learnt a lot and must have lived life to the fullest when we were in JNV Katihar. While some of the alumni are still in the midst of completing their studies, rest of them must be doing well in their respective fields. I know that if given a chance, all of us would be willing to go back to the same nest – our JNV Katihar. Just give it a thought and recollect the golden memories of golden days!

I know that at present we are all very depressed due to the death of our beloved Iqbal sir, but we must not forget his honest, selfless and sincere service to JNV Katihar. We all love him and “Love cannot remain by itself — it has no meaning. Love has to be put into action, and that action is SERVICE,”  Mother Teresa said. This is the time for us to initiate our services to give back to the same society from which we have achieved so much, may be not only financially, but also in many other ways.

We cordially invite alumni of JNV Katihar from each batch to act as coordinators for our beloved JNV and its students. If you believe that you have something to offer – be it ideas, suggestions, guidance, leadership, management skills, mentoring students, helping school and its management, we welcome you! However, we must not forget that social service should not be by force, but by willingness, desire and commitment. And unquestionably, well behaved, humble and knowledgeable should be the key qualities of a Navodayan to take this responsibility.

Those who want to take the responsibility of representing their class/batch, please let us know. Two/Three persons from each class will be ideal to coordinate with their class friends. This will enable the continuity of the activities in case any coordinator is unable to make himself/herself available to fulfill the responsibilities. Also, there are different kinds of tasks; however, each coordinator will have an option to take the responsibility as per their area of expertise. Last but not the least, we strongly encourage girls’ representation from each batch!

Below are some of the responsibilities to start with:

1. The alumni (referred as coordinators from here on) representing their class will coordinate between (a) class friends of the school (b) the present students & (c) Teachers & staffs of the JNV Katihar, and are expected to undertake the responsibility of coordinating with other alumni of their batch for the events and meets organized by the alumni from time to time.

2. Coordinators are requested to visit their school regularly at least twice in a year and keep others updated about the school progress. In case the coordinators are unable to go, they may inform us well in advance so that we can send other representatives who are well aware of the requirements there.

3. Coordinators must be willing to establish a good network and healthy relations with the School management. It will help in managing counselling sessions, medical camps and other events.

4. Coordinators must be willing to give 2 hours/week of their quality time in interacting with their class/batch mates in person or through internet/social networking or phone calls.

5. Coordinators are requested to raise funds on behalf of their batches in case of genuine needs. In case of severe necessity, they may collect some small amount for the welfare of the students of JNV Katihar.

6. We will also ‘Adopt-a-village’ and plan to send the alumni, counselors and doctors, who will provide free medical check-ups, guide the students, train the people and organize workshops for villagers. Coordinators will be responsible for coordinating and communicating with respective participants.

These initiatives are dedicated to our beloved Iqbal sir and Madan sir. We will have monthly conferences to review the status of all our efforts and plan further progress accordingly.

Note that we are starting it with JNV Katihar in Patna Cluster/Region on a trial basis, but we will eventually expand it to other clusters/regions. We have definite plans to expand our activities towards navodaya family and village development and hence we surely need each others helping hands. For any further information, questions or if you have any doubts about the description, please do not hesitate to contact us. Looking forward to hearing from you! You may kindly mention your name, your batch with the year you joined the school here or mail to us.

    The idea is quite noble . Responsibly assigned are immense . i have slight reservation about the way we have proposing to selecting it by just voluntarily . i mean let the coordinator have to earn this covert post . why not u all ( who ever is core team ) choose someone from that batch on the basis of acceptability among batch mate and others criteria which ever fits ur bill . in this way he will feel empowered and motivated

    personally i owe so much to this school … such a good foundation of acadmic on which a reasonable successful career i have made or will make . School which gave me friends which are still my friends after a decade . senior who genuinely guided me and many fond memories which have not faded a bit . attened many college school and made many friends
    .. but navoday school and navoday friends are and will remain special .. definitively it is impossible to repay what i have received and i am also not thinking . but will love support any initiative in any capacity( coordinator or anything else ) to make that place more conductive to success of present student . i sincerely believe some alumni are really committed in this direction. after all great educational institutions have been made great by strong alumni base . lets join hands for this noble course . formally i offer my self un conditioned in any way i am deemed to be fit .

  46. Right initiative. we need to continue the activities……

    dear Friends , as we are getting lots & lots of nominations, so I have a suggetsion that co-ordinatorship can be given to the 1st 3-4 nominations from each batch and rest can be given some other useful work that is needed to be done in our Navodaya and adopted village. if u agree with this , then plz leave ur opinion here and if u have got some better suggestion then you are most welcome to comment here.

    Di. I just went through your article. It’s well articulate and powerful.
    It drives our point in the most polite way possible.

    Though i personally don’t know anything about the incumbent principal , neither have i met him, through your article and feedbacks from my friends and Juniors i am compelled to believe the person must be terribly selfish and incompetent for such a prestigious and influential position.

    I hope the NVS takes the matter as serious as it really is as the career and future of a the current and batches would be greatly influenced by the person leading them. It’s necessary to oust people like these from such vital posts.

      Sorry, this reply was for the other article named “What kind of education can be imparted by a person who cannot even watch his own behavior?”, it mistakenly got posted here. 🙂
