Quality Education is extremely important for an individual to realise their full potential and be the person they want to be.
“Teaching is more than Imparting Knowledge, it is Inspiring Change” – William Arthur Ward
“Quality Education is extremely important for an individual to realise their full potential and be the person they want to be. One of the greatest Injustice in India is that a child’s access to quality education depends on his family’s income or social status. Majority of the school going children in India use the government schools as a medium of education. Government schools in India suffer from a variety of problems which include infrastructure, sanitation, quality of education and a crisis of Leadership. Due to these factors the students passing of out of these schools are not able to stand as equals to their private counterparts.” teachforchange.in
I had, for the last couple of months, been thinking of getting associated with an NGO wherein I am able to contribute, not in terms of money or tangibles, but devoting my time for a good cause. And as the saying goes- where there is a will you will always find a way. I happened to come across Teach For Change website and decided to register myself as a volunteer. Teach For Change is a nation-wide movement to improve literacy among primary school children studying in government schools. The Program gives lot of flexibility to the volunteers as they can choose to conduct the classes on any day of the week. Working people can even choose a Saturday.
The screening was done and I was required to attend a full day Training Workshop to be able to kick start the journey for the new academic year. It was a mixed group of working Professionals, Housewives and retired people as well.
I was really touched by what Former Ms Universe Sushmita Sen said in one of the videos shown to us about the initiative- “Teach For Change is not a social responsibility, it is a human responsibility”.
During the training the volunteers who have been a part of Teach For Change for more than a year shared their experiences with the group. One of them mentioned that initially she faced a lot of challenges and only after she made some changes within herself and in her outlook towards the children, she actually started enjoying taking up this initiative.
One of the volunteers I interacted with during the break mentioned that she had joined last year as well but could not continue after few days as she found it difficult to handle the kids. I could see HOPE and INTENT in her wanting to make a second attempt this year… !!!
Now I really look forward to this journey of “mutual learning” and “acceptance” – with the hope that I am able to bring some positive changes in the lives of the kids as well as myself.
I believe with your best wishes, I should be able to take this journey to fruition and do my bit…stay tuned for I plan to share my experiences in the next part of this blog, as I move forward in this journey….

Neena Gupta’s take on love between a man and woman opens a can of worms. She’s speaking her truth, which is a reality for so many people, but is it universal?
Neena Gupta made a statement in her interview with Humans of Bombay that she doesn’t believe love exists between a man and a woman. She said it starts off with lust, which then changes into affection, and becomes a habit. The only love she’s ever known and felt is for her daughter, Masaba.
Neena is married to Vivek Mehra, a chartered accountant who she first met on a flight. Vivek Mehra has two children, and it’s his second marriage. It’s Neena’s second marriage too. She was earlier married at an early age of 20. She has one child, Masaba, from her previous relationship with the now retired West Indian cricketer, Vivian Richards.
Her statement about love evoked some vehement reactions ranging from she’s not met the right man to “blood runs thicker than water”.
A man doing a PhD is rebuked for not earning well. A woman on other hand is constantly questioned why she's doing a PhD when she should have been married and raising kids.
Indians have an almost fanatic obsession with the salutation Dr. Even a child who barely understands the world around, when asked “what you want to become later in life?” usually blurts out a teacher or a doctor, as these are the professionals we first encounter early on in our lives.
I too, was fascinated with the white coat fascination alongside with the Dr tag, right from childhood. However, I did not score the marks required for getting into medical college, and my dream landed on the ground with a thud, and I went in for a graduation in sciences.
My graduation and post-graduation were a roller coaster ride and a second post-graduation which I pursued since I wanted to get into the academic career brought with itself a new perspective towards life. That year I shone like the brightest star and became the most meritorious student of the campus. I cleared my Net exam much before the post-graduation results were declared, and became a sort of sensation in the university. One of my professors remarked, “So we see the next doctor in making now” when he congratulated me.
