Melody of Joy …!

Yesterday every minute was a Melody of Joy for me and hundreds of children gathered at the event held in Loyola college.  It was the charity event named “Melody Of Joy” organized by YHM (Social Welfare Org.) and ‘V-trust’ . And few more groups like Outreachers, Innovators,Loyola college also joined hands with them to conduct this event. Cultural events from various college students Chennai and from the children’s of different homes ( homes for destitute , home for special children and some special institutions) were displayed on the stage. Really it was a great joy being there. Each and every minute was filled with joy , happiness , wishes , encouragements and emotions.

YHM (young Helping Minds) was one of the main organizer this event. They have selected 9 different organizations and conducted some offstage events like drawing competiton , essay writing and Oratorical and selected three from each event and from each organization. And events like dance, singing , mime show , skid ,etc., were conducted onstage. For all these events the prizes were distributed in the stage. The event was well organized. I just wondered at the volunteers for YHM and V-Trust. Volunteers are the main reason for making this a grand success. Because running a event with the college students as audience was the not the easiest job. They did it and the event completed without any hiccups.

My special wishes to “Kalam Nagappan” (founder of YHM) for his great commitment and interest in building a better society. Nagappan is a young chap, doing his third year engineering . I have never seen a guy with this much fire. He is a man of activeness and man of promises. He got admired by Dr.Kalam and prefixed his name with  Kalams name . The strength of YHM is the college students. Most of the members are students and so they have lots of volunteers. But it is as much easy and as much tought to get a volunteer job done from the young blood. Blossom always setback with lack of volunteers , bcos having software engg. as the members , its really hard to get volunteers. Hats off to YHM and its volunteers.

Special thanks to Loyola college for giving the excellent auditorium, V-trust, Outreachers, Innovators and for every one involved in organizing this event. Lashings of thanks and prayers to the kids and children of different organizations like Siragu, Saraswathy school, Nalmanam, Home of hope,Mithra etc., for participating in the events and make every one happy.

I wish perpetual success and happiness for the YHM, V-trust and other organizations. Let this melody of joy reach each and every one in this world.

Happy to see lots of youngsters working for a better society. Best wishes.

just wonder at Dr.Kalam’s commitment

Yesterday (24th July ) few NGO’s had a meeting with Dr. Abdul Kalam. The meeting was about a interactive session and all the NGO’s planned to discuss about their current and future activites and to discuss about his ideas on that. Few of my known contacts from a NGO also attented the Meeting. Can any one guess the appointment time given my Dr.Kalam ???

It’s 11.00 pm and my friend messaged me after the meeting was over. The time was around 2.00 am. I just really wonder at his commitment. They also say that , his regular schedule is upto 1.00 am every day. What may be the thing makes him to work for several hours at this age?  This shows that he still dreams and he is also working on that.Hope by today evening I will be getting some info about the meeting and the things held over there.

Some of the NGO’s attended the meeting are , Young Helping Minds (YHM), SIRAGU Montessori School (Suyam Trust), India Vision 2020, India Sudar, another from Cognizant(CTS) company  etc.,  Here the most of the NGO’s are working towards Dr.Kalams vision (2020).

Though I am not the one , to completely praise Dr.Kalam for all his activites. I too have some controversial perceptions on few of his activiteis. But most times I wonder at his commitment and Interest in improving India. Hats off to Dr. Kalam.

Wings Of Evolution

Sunday 19th may 08 10.00 am to 11.45 am was one of the cherishing moments of my life. I was there at sathyam cinema’s to watch a documentary movie called “Wings of Evolution” . Really unforgettable moments filled with emotions and achievements of real hard work.

“Wings of Evolution” – A docu. movie based on the revolutionary Educational system followed in a School called Siragufound by “Suyam charitable Trust“. The school was found mainly to help the children’s of pavement dwellers(street childrens) and childrens from economically challenged families. The movie was completely based on the Siragu school and the story of forming the Siragu school. The complete movie was narrated by Uma and Muthuram, the fouders of Siragu scool.The movie was scripted in a unique way as such they never portrayed the struggels and the requirements/needs of the school. The move was just made to say every one about the social responsibility of individuals and the reach of quality education for all children.

The movie was made by “Accessible Horizon Films” and directed by Raghu Jeganathan and Ramesh Mourthy and their team. Really a good job done by Raghu and co. A movie can be portrayed as a good movie by two terms,What was told and How it was told. This movie can be said as good movie for the term “what was told”. After the move we had a discussion session about the movie. Actor-Director Parthiban and Director Vasanth were there for discussion. The discussion went on for 30 mins and it was good.The film also won the best short documentary award in the International Lake Forest Film Festival ,2008.

It’s good to see some same minded peoples around us.I came to know that our (Blossom’s) vision is same as of Siragu. We are in the process of building a protopype model for a new education system for rural childrens. We are completely against macaley Education system.Siragu has the simillar thoughts. Hope to meet them in person in a week’s time.

Hats off to Uma and Muthuram of Siragu school, for working towards a revolutionaly educational system. Sure this will bring a change in the next generation rural India. Special thanks to Sathyam Cinemas for given a platform for encouraging and displaying these kinds of socail activites.

Revolution in Education System – Let’s Bring it …!
