Please Contribute for a Small Good Deed!

Posted by Rewa Smriti on August 23, 2017

Dear All,

We all are aware of the flood situation in Bihar. I have faced it for the first time as I am in Bihar for the last few days. The flood situation in Bihar continued to be grim with major rivers overflowing into the neighbouring areas. Many districts have been affected by the floods including my district, KATIHAR. And its very very scary when you see the dam broken just 3 km away from your home. It feels like escaping death from its deadly jaws when you see the water overflowing the dam so closely. So many people have died, several have lost their homes. The condition is so pathetic in some areas that we cannot describe in words. You can see the dead bodies of children, young and old lying here and there when the water recedes. The data published officially for loss of life may be less than what the real situation is. Relief camps are being setup by the Government but the need of the hour is much more than that.

After seeing the deadly situation, we alumni of Navodaya have decided to do something about it. There are so many ways to help the helpless here. We are thinking of providing shelter, sponsorship for children (at least for a year) and logistics. We may not be able to do this for all, but at least we can do it for a few within our capacity.

You know that great things are shaped by simple and small things. So let us think and act upon it, as someone has rightly said “a small good deed is better than the grandest good intention”. So the time has come for us to join together and strengthen each other so that we are able to serve seamlessly our own family members facing this disaster.

We are open to receive the contribution from all the coroners. Every donation, whatever be the amount, is welcome. No donation is small when it is done with a big heart. Any amount you can donate would be greatly appreciated! And at the same time, we would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to all of you who have been supporting this cause.

You may use anyone of the mentioned account for contribution. Some donations have come to the account of Rajkishor, Prakash, and Avnish while some of have donated through other channels. Additionally, soon we will be updating the details of contribution made till now. Also, I appreciate all our coordinators for their great coordination and support. Let’s join hands together!

You may donate online or through our many other ways like through Paytm # 9619500732. We have made it easy to help in ways that work for you.

What kind of education can be imparted by a person who cannot even watch his own behavior?

Posted by Rewa Smriti on August 3, 2017

It’s been 6 years now, we have lost Iqbal sir and since then JNVK has changed so much. Over time, his loss became more acute for JNV Katihar. Within few year, result went down. Forget result, Navodaya is more than this! Not only result, if truth be told, the whole school environment and morality is deteriorating day by day which is unfavorable for a residential school culture.

Few months back when I heard some indigestible news about unethical actions from few of my juniors that disturbed me a lot and I couldn’t stop myself to visit the place, where I have spent golden days of my life.

It is highly unethical and immoral! Any principal or higher authority of any school, be it new or old for the campus, having the administrative powers of entire school, should be more responsible towards his/her action. They must have ethics and moral values by virtue. Nevertheless, nowadays, the people who are newly posted in school to lead the administration are lacking the moral value and character. It is sad that,they are not aware of residential school culture and its values.

Most administrators spend a most of their time dealing with school discipline and behavior. It seems few spiritless people have joined educational institution and have their own axe to grind as they don’t have any other options. Such people will never be able to impart a quality education to students when they themselves don’t know what they are doing. When you don’t have a moral value to play in front of children/students, you don’t deserve such a dignified place for your unethical activity.  We respect and value our teachers and it’s not honor that one can “demand” for, but something that has to be “earned”!!!

What kind of education can be imparted by such a person who cannot even watch his own behavior???? Misuse of powers at such a position should be acted upon very strictly by higher authorities. But I don’t know why they are unable to act accordingly.

Schools are the ideal places to inculcate values in our children, including how to build ‘CHARACTER’ and make good choices down the road. There are some people who may have some goodness in them, they have a certain code of morals and values that they live by, and this keeps them “grounded”.

I strongly feel that the culture of a school determines the frequency of successful students. Any School would always be interested in three kinds of outcomes: “Skills” to be able to do something, “knowledge” to be able to differentiate between right and wrong, and “Character” to develop good habits and virtue.  Most importantly, it’s about promoting ethics, values, and behavior in building a positive and productive person.  It’s everything we do that influences the kind of human beings we become.

This is ironical that some pathetic people are there to build character of the students.

I always believed and followed “Don’t respect person or position, Respect BEHAVIOUR!” I will forgive anything you do in your life, because it doesn’t matter to me. However, if any of your action leaves negative impact on the campus, we the alumni of Navodaya will be shameful for such people/administration/higher authority. We always make sure that they hear our say and will do whatever we can to make things right.”

We have decided not to hide anything so that other people get benefit of it and raise their voice against immoral acts.

Hami Navoday Hon…

तुम निर्बाध हो, प्रवाह हो

Posted by Rewa Smriti on July 18, 2017

I am posting one of the most beautiful poem I’ve ever read. This is written by one of my very good friend, a navodayan Anurag Ranjan. He is one of my favorite poet of this era. I enjoy reading his each and every poem. His Poetrylike music, draws a picture of things or emotions to which we can relate and we can feel that again through poetry.

दिल और दिमाग के पेच में उलझी हुई
नहीं नहीं ये तो तुम हो ही नहीं सकती
तुम निर्बाध हो, प्रवाह हो
और उससे भी बड़ी बात
कि तुम मेरी लेखनी की
पहली नायिका हो
सच में!
मैं आज भी वहीं हूं
और वहीं रहना भी चाहता हूं
जहां तुम में मेरी मां दिखी थी
वह लगाव आज भी जस का तस है
सभी रिश्ते-नातों के बीच
मैं जानता हूं सबकुछ,
शायद तुम को तुमसे ज्यादा
तुम छुपा भी नहीं सकती मुझसे
लेकिन
तुम तो आदर्श हो, प्रेरणा हो
सोच हो, साधना हो
और इसी कसौटी पर ही
नायिका सूत्रधार बनी रहेगी
मेरी हर रचना में
अपनी लेखनी से
तुम्हें अमर करने की चाह
बस यूं ही
जो शाब्दीक भी नहीं, भाषीक भी नहीं!

Our Sincere Thanks to All!

Posted by Rewa Smriti on June 14, 2017

Dear All,

We are speechless and falling short of words to express our feelings to see the overwhelming response to stand for each other. Few days back we had sought for contributions for our fellow Narasimha and we are happy to share that the contributions received by now are much more than our expectation.

Your small contribution can save life of Narasimha!

As you all know, our brother Narsimha, a fellow Navodayan from JNV Medak (1991-98), met with tragic accident two years ago which resulted in amputation of his leg and an infection in kidneys, lungs and spinal cord. He is from poor, agriculture dependent family and is father of three kids. His brother died recently in another unfortunate incident who was the sole earner and financial supporter of his family.

The minimum need for treatment of Narsimha as told to us was Rs. 5 lacs, and we had set this amount as our target for collection of contribution. But we are very happy to share that this target was achieved by May 30 only, and still the contributions kept flowing. We continued with this on the advice of some of our fellow alumni, and we kept collecting till 5th of June. Now we request not to send any more contributions.

Please find the details of contribution made till now are given below:

We are thankful from the bottom of our heart for every single contribution we received from all the corners for our brother Narasimha. We couldn’t have done it without you! Your kind spirit to help made it possible to achieve the goal within no time, which is really commendable and beyond our imagination. This moment is making us to shout out loud “Hami Navoday hon“!!!

At the end, we appreciate the dedication of all our coordinators, the credit definitely goes to their round the clock efforts to make it possible and once again it is proved that together we can make a difference!

Regards,
AINAA

Your small contribution can save life of Narasimha!

Posted by Rewa Smriti on May 19, 2017

Dear All

As you all know, our brother Narsimha, a fellow navodayan from JNV Medak (1991-98), met with tragic accident two years ago which resulted in amputation of his leg and an infection in kidneys, lungs and spinal cord. He is from poor, agriculture dependent family and is father of three kids. His brother died recently in another unfortunate incident who was the sole earner and financial supporter of his family.

Inherently, we know we are navodayans and we have been designed to live for something greater than ourselves. Our greatest successes in life are often found in helping others. Narasimha needs our help in order to get better treatment and continue supporting his family. It will be a shame to see a navodayan lose his life due to lack of money. So, please come forward and join hands together to help him survive in whatever way you can and your support will give hope to him and his family. We truly appreciate your help and efforts in helping Narasimha!

Navodayans, We require some Introspection!

Posted by Rewa Smriti on June 30, 2016

Dear All,

I would like to bring to the notice of my Navodaya brothers and sisters a few things here for self-appraisal. Its not that I am against anybody nor am I trying to demean anyone here. This is just my view and I always have been working this way. I am not follower of anyone, but I try to evaluate the right way, taking guidance wherever necessary, and propose the same for everyone else. Seeing the present state of Navodayans, I would like to talk about a few things here.

I have always felt that my navodaya family is doing something different which makes us feel proud and it gives us a sense of satisfaction but seeing few recent activities…it does not give me any pride nor do I appreciate such things. Pardon me if anybody is getting hurt reading this post. I am happy if anyone among you does any kind of activities for uplifting a navodayan’s life and I really admire such kinds of activities. But I discourage activities meant for momentary pleasures as they are not going to be helpful for our family in any way. If anybody is earning enough money, please value that money and invest it to help others rather just going to any five or seven star hotels to have alumni meet. We have such beautiful and large campuses in front of which five or seven star hotels have no value. At personal level you are free to do so. No one will object you…but our vision is getting diluted and I feel that we are lacking the guidance and going on the wrong track.

Secondly, the news of my brothers and sisters fighting with each other over petty issues and getting divided is also disheartening. The vision of Navodaya has National Integration as one of its pillars, and our conduct needs to be in consonance with our vision. Our opinions may differ, but the sense of being related needs to continue. So, here we require some introspection!

Hence I propose a few things here:

  1. We are all aware that JNV works to select talented rural children as the target group and attempts to provide them with quality education. Keeping this in view, we need to organize our get-togethers and other activities in a simple but profound manner and that too in our own campuses so that as many students as possible can get benefited and feel inspired.
  2. We need to work on our mutual relationships so that we work in an integrated manner, rather than getting divided as we have been taught to work for national integrity and this has been the vision of entire Navodaya.
  3. We need to expand our activities to other needy children of the society, and not restrict ourselves to only Navodayans. So our activities will be by Navodayans but for the entire Nation.
  4. We have a huge manpower, but we need to devise ways to utilize our potential in the right direction, rather than spoiling it over our own conflicts!
  5. We can make a team of guardians made up of experienced teachers/ principals/ commissioners/ deputy commissioners who will keep guiding us and evaluating our performance from time to time. For example: Nageshwar Rao sir, Rama Rao sir, Ramchandra sir, Ashok Shukla sir, Girish sir, Ali sir, D K Modi sir and many more…
  6. We can invite eminent personalities of the society for giving talk to our team which will not only enthuse them but also make us dream big for the society and nation.

It is only a proposal from me. You may agree or disagree with me over these points, and hence I invite suggestions from you for open discussion.

दुनिया की भीड़ में क्यों खो रहा, मिलेगा कुछ भी न फल जो बो रहा…

Regards,
Rewa Smriti
