Welcome to my blog. My dear friends, After a small interval , I am in my blog again to inform you about my silence during two or three weeks in this new year. I was very busy in my professional life as well as in my personal life. Now I am free to some extent. I would have been continuing my favourite habit ” blogging” with utmost care and importance.
But not here in this kalpataru.home.blog . From today you please come and check my WordPress. org blogsite “http://www. kalpatarurudra.org
It’s my pleasure if you support me and read my blog as before. My humble Namasker, Love and respect to all my friends.
Swami Vivekananda is regarded as the architect of Modern India . He wanted to reshape his motherland, India andcalled his countrymen : “ Come, be men ! come out of your narrow holes and have a look aboard. See how nations are on the march ! Do you love man ? Do you love your country? Thus come, let us struggle for higher and better things , look not back , no , not even if you see the dearest and nearest cry . Look , not back , but forward ! “
In fact , he felt deeply for the poor and for the distressed . He also noticed the miserable condition of the women of India . A Kuli of western country is more educated than our common people. Most of the American women are educated. Having seen it in America, Vivekananda decided to impart women education in India. He has been profoundly grateful to the Western women who came forward to implement his dream. He took this service as a God’s wish. In a letter he expressed this through his vibrant words. He writes:
” Be of good cheer and believe that we are selected by the Lord to do great things and we will do them. Hold yourself in readiness, ie. be pure and holy , and love for love’s sake . Love the poor, the miserable, the downtrodden and the Lord will bless you.”
SWAMI VIVEKANANDA’S DREAM He diedat the age of 39 in 1902 . It’s true that he was then young . If we compare his age with the cricket player Mr. Dhoni who recently retired from the Indian team , former Indian cricket skipper . Dhoni , most probably, has been retired from playing at the age of 39 years old. So his death was very early , but he did a lot for his countrymen within this period . That’s a time when communication , media and modern gadgets were not available. Only a few newspapers were being published as the source of getting information . So we couldn’t able to learn about incidents what used to happen in his time in the world. Despite, we have come to know about Swamiji’s untiring struggle to fulfill his goals in the West as well as in India. We are now remembering his outstanding activities . But actually we’re lagging behind in progress of our country in all respects . We could not able toattain the dream what he dreamt of for his motherland.
First ofall , Swami Vivekananda wanted to see a vibrant India . During his travel throughout India by walking he noticed the poverty – stricken mass of India. They were ignorant people, the women whose were exploited by the priest and the heads of the community. He looked into this miserable condition of the society , prejudices, fanatism and corruption. Swamiji’s life is connected with his motherland. So his untiring effort was to remove all these barriers drawbacks of India. He wanted to transform this situation with the aid of spiritual ideals of Ancient India. His struggle was to awaken the ignorant and prejudice – affected people of the society and to be freed from this situation. That time our people have lost their self respect and inherent power. To awaken self respect and self – power as well as self – confidence he had a plan . He wanted to make a new India where no man is being unfed and untaught. He emphasized in spreading the true education where the ancient Indian education and western science and technology oriented curriculum will be imparted to the students. But we couldn’t implement his dream in our education curriculum. Our education neither gives us a suitable job nor we learn to be a honest man. It’s needed to be amalgamation both of the two – Indian spiritual and moral and character building education along with the western science and technology oriented curriculum. Then we could have a total education. Without science and technology we can’t survive and not be abletoprogress,withoutspiritual and physicaleducation we can’t beenlightened.
Secondly, in this connection we remember Swamiji’s famous saying, ” Man – making is my motto . ” To him , True education and true religion is the same. He thus expressed his thoughtful opinion about it. He told in this respect that ” Education is the manifestation of the perfection already in man” and again he said about religion that Religion is the manifestation of the innerself already in man. In fact , ultimate goal of the life is same which we can get from education and at the same time from religion. Education can help us to regain our self power, and self – confidence. Still it’s very very important criteria to make us a perfectman.
Fourthly, Our political party leaders, administrators , even judiciary, the BSF, the Doctors , the teachers are not working according to Swamiji’s teaching.Everywhere is corruption . Police is always heading down to the political party , mainly ruling party. Leaders are running towards powers and honour. They’re mostly opportunists . From big to small , are connected with the scams. Procastination is in judiciary and that’s why they’re not properly punished , or judgement is delayed . Farmers and labourers are being deprived compelled to suiside. Some dishonest Fode are also responsible for that . Swami Vivekananda didn’t want this circumstances . Pure commodities are not available in the market . Doctors are not sympathetic to the patients . They have lost their ethics . Swami ji said: Service to man is service to God. It’s not found in our society. We have given the name of the college, school, hospitals or locality of any place by the name of Swami Vivekananda , but it’s not sufficient to give him respect . We should have to follow his path . We must have to implement his dream .
Thirdly, Swami Vivekananda noticed the society of other countries and experienced a lot about it. One of his letter to Shankarlal he writes : ” We must see how the engine of the society works in other countries and keep free and open communication with what is going on in the mind of other nations , if we really want to be a nation again.” He noticed during his travel to West in Ship the life and activities of the people of some other countries. China is expert in trades and businesses. He wrote: ” All labour, all trade seemed to be in their hands. Comparetively, his country , India was to some extent lagging behind in this respect . That’s why, he repeatedly told young generation to be engaged in business. Indian government at present is inspiring to the new generation to take initiative in business and trade . MSME is now a central government program for which Bank loan is to be given to the projects. But I think it has gone futile because of Bank’s procastination and goodwill . So Government agency should look after the matter and remove all these barriers so that unemployment problem can be solved . Unemployment is a tremendous problem of our country. It’s the burning need of the time . So , being sympathised , government and other NGOs should come forward to solve this challenge . Every man should be given food and lodging . Government is trying to meet up it through housing project , NGOs are trying to provide foods and clothing.But that’s not sufficient.
Swami Vivekananda was a Sanyasin but his spirit was like a soldier. His renunciation was to service the mankind. He expressed his thoughts in a lecture:
“The longest night seems to be passing away, the sorest trouble seems to be coming to an end at last, the seeming corpse appears to be awaking and a voice is coming to us — away back where history and even tradition fails to peep into the gloom of the past, coming down from there, reflected as it were from peak to peak of the infinite Himalaya of knowledge, and of love, and of work, India, this motherland of ours — a voice is coming unto us, gentle, firm, and yet unmistakable in its utterances, and is gaining volume as days pass by, and behold, the sleeper is awakening! Like a breeze from the Himalayas, it is bringing life into the almost dead bones and muscles, the lethargy is passing away, and only the blind cannot see, or the perverted will not see, that she is awakening, this motherland of ours, from her deep long sleep. None can desist her anymore; never is she going to sleep anymore; no outward powers can hold her back any more; for the infinite giant is rising to her feet.” These words from Swamiji were like a thunder amidst the prevailing obscurity on this part of the globe and incidentally these were spoken on 25th January, 1897, just a couple of days after the Netaji was born.
We are going to celebrate 125 years birthday of another great son of India on 23 January who was an ardent devotee of Swami Vivekananda. Netaji Subhash followed his path to get free from British rule and upkeeping our country and sacrificed his life , giving up all materialaspirations.
Fourthly, Swami Vivekananda preached universal religion throughout the world . He told us not to underrate any other sects, creeds or religious beliefs , but to respect every religion , as the truth is same in every religion. Holiness, purity , kindness and generosity are not the property ofany single religion. In this connection, we can excerpt from the lecture of former president of America, Barack Obama . He expressed his admirationhere :
” Instead of succumbing to division, you have shown that the strength of India – the very idea of India – is its essence of all colours , castes and creeds . It’s the diversity represented in this chamber today. It’s the richness of faiths celebrated by a visitor to my hometown of Chicago more than a century ago – the renowned Swami Vivekananda. He said that , ” holiness, purity and charity are not the exclusive possessions of any church in the world, and that every system has produced men and women of the most exalted character.”
Subhash Chandra Bose considered Vivekananda as his spiritual Guru . He called Vivekananda a ” full blooded masculine personality – and a fighterto the core of being .”I think His call to the nation will not be futile . The light he ignited shall never stop to spread out in the society . Today his birthday , we must take outh that we shall try our best to follow his path and to implement his desires and dreamswhich are still not fulfilled .
SWAMIVIVEKANANDA : THE LIGHTSwami ji influenced so many people of East and West . Common man to aristocrate, all the people took shelter on his sympathetic lap . In India , he is regarded as a super genius , a godly man . He has inspired massively to the freedom fighters who sacrificed their lives for the independence of the country . Vivekananda tought them to love and respect India as Mother. First of all , I am to write about his patriotic heart. He is the only one who has tried his best efforts to change the weak minds into a strong one . He told : Weakness is death and strength is life. Now you only worship of the God who is in distress, your motherland. Keep aside rest God and Goddesses. Secondly, Swami Vivekananda’s life is deeply concerned with his motherland, India.
The Media is the number one device of battling against all the odds and drawbacks of the society as well as the whole universe. Without the media of communication, we can’t live a moment in the modern world. Ao, we can say that now the media is life. Today, I will furnish in my blog a poem related to media.
NOW THEMEDIA IS LIFE
The name of the poem is ” Now Media Is Life “.
It’s media, a very vibrant but spontaneous device of present era . It is our basic needs with food and lodging ,and freedom of speech and voting . After changing so many eras weare now in the era ofmedia, passing away Paul , Sen , Gupta, Mughol, British and so on.
Now media is life which ruling us . Now it is the era of media. All is controlled by media. It instructs us, advice us and help us what to do or not , in each and every moment,in dream , and instruggle .
Who would be awarded , Who would be rebuked , Who would be regarded , all are furnished by media
The very first page of newspaper on Independence Day, when we open and look at theheadline in ten column banner- The feet of whom would you visit ? Is it of Netaji or Mahatma Gandhi, not they’re ! but a rapist murderer who has beenconvictedandhanged . It’s also defined by the alerted almightymedia.
Now media is life. Media is like a metal detector, seeking for a silent and secret atom to discharge and defused, it settles down whether the case is of suicide or murder, the sinners are the politicians, a few dacoits, murderers are patriots, – everything, every moment is being defined and confirmed by the hands and pen of media.
In Sunami or earthquake how would you proceed to propaganda , how would you shouting at arranging michil and gatherings , that are also programmed & organised by the media . They teachyou seriously.
As soon as the chun or lime drops down from the bettle , media will shout to you, If there is missing in tune or music, media will threat you , if rice is not produced from paddy , media then and there will expose it by their machines and skilled tune.
In modern age , media is God , Supreme consciousness. The leaders are running towards them to satisfy and to sit on the crown , the singers, the stars , the writers, the researchers are always trying to be favoured of them for getting success, to be awarded the Bharatratna or Padma awards. Media , You are superb , you are God !
I am Dr. Sushil Rudra from Durgapur West Bengal, India . This blog is for the people of India , its culture, literature , and the religious beliefs etc . I’m to blog is for shouting for the demands of the underprivileged society and the people whose are deprived by the ruling government. And also to write for their demands as well as solving the problems.
Life And Dreams In Poetry
My Dream’s Bird is absolutely my own We can’t live in this world without dreams From childhood to gray days Dreams come and dreams go Sometimes it’s daydream, sometime nightmare with tremendous shocking , yet I play with these unrealistic games, Never getting any fruitful solution Running into the darkened mist .
Let fly in the sky your dreaming bird Don’t captivate your small desires in your secret chamber, don’t afraid of walking through the dark forest or deep sea , Or climbing at peak of high mountain Always be firm and steady in your journey Whatever the consequence it’s , So don’t stop to enjoy dreams as life is too much uncertain why do you not enjoy it.

Please read and comment if it’s helpful to you. – S. Rudra
I desire to live in this world, it’s my sweet home. Never I want this world to be a very small like seed or a fruit Amloki . I want a world which would spread Certainly I would get found my world. Oh my world, please extent yourself, expand unto Brahmah and the whole Universe , spread up to endless sky or the entire spaces, near and far . Let My world be eternal, endless and beyond geographical , World ! Oh my dear World, don’t be contracted, nor narrowhearted ,and me, rather being small and more smaller would wrap you and hug you with utmost care.
You become big and I stay small like your obedient child , only for looking into your magistry I would be very soft like a bunchof silk – very softand formless , if I get a little alert , being rolled up like a Murshidabad silk ,try to enter into the circle of the ring with a gentle coursey .
The World Is Very Big , It Can Not Be Small like Pond . It’s so old that never been lost.
Oh my companion of joy and sorrow , the wind is blowing in my life , Let come to me for traveling another world where there’s no pain and suffering, no betraying , no unemployment , and no corruption likehere .
The wind is blowing, the wind of outing for anybeautifulplaces with my friends – tell to the trees, let come to outing with me. Let talk to the path that I might return at late night , don’t wait for me , but keep shutting off the door.
You can sing a song for your remote friends , but that song will be mingled with the drops of the dews in the space . You are to be carried out lots of fairy tales , – but whom do you tell it ? Whose are your listeners? Before lying down on the bed the people are being absorbed in deep sleep ; beasts and birds are also in out of consciousness, probably they’re in their nest resting to gain the energies for the next expedition. Even the moon 🌙 and the 🌟 stars are not in awakened state. Thus we have wasted a massive times throughout our life. Oh companion of sorrow and delight of my Life , Let’s go toanother world of merriment where the moon and stars are always ready to welcome us.
Welcome to my blog either as a reader or influencers . Any suggestions are alwayswelcome.
It’s a fine morning of 1st January, New Year of 2021 and Kalpataru Divas . God Incarnate, Sri Ramakrishna, spiritual Guru of famous Hindu Monk Swami Vivekananda, turned into Kalpataruand showered blessings to His followers in Cassipore Uddanbati in northern Kolkata 6 months before His Mahasamadhi. Since then 1st January is regarded as Kalpataru Utsav.
We start at 9.00 O’clock in the morning along with my family and friends of Swami Vivekananda Vani Prochar Somity of Durgapur, a renowned NGO and spiritual organisation.Having bath and morning refreshments we reached at Mandir of the said organisation and take part in Puja and meditation.
From Durgapur City we start at 11.00 am. by a luxury bus.The volunteers already cooked lunch of 6 hundred heads of people. All the cooked meals was being carried on by a small truck. We are about 50 heads . So, the rest meals will be distributed to the poor people of two small villages. There’s another object of this tour. We are to distribute 3 hundred blankets amongst the poor villagers.
THE JUNGLE MAHAL
This is called Jangle Mahal . Our bus running through the forest . Both the sides of the road prevails deep forest. We come to know about the dangerous attack of Elephants in this way. So we decided that we will return home before dusk.
Both the villages are sorrounded by the forest. Steel authority of India and another company has come to decorate this two villages with their CSR funds. This pacca road , Community Halls, latrin was constructed. Solar lights are provided on the road as there’s no electricity. Although this areas are under the jurisdiction of Gram Panchayat, but they don’t take care about the poor people of this villages. Only the NGO’S are working for the upliftment of the villagers.
THE AUSTRIC SOCIETY : SANTALS
But that’s not sufficient. Here minority scheduled Tribes, mostly Santals are the dweelers . They are fighting against the poverty having no source of income. Only tribal men do work in jungle with a minimum remuneration. Mainly they’re exploited by the political parties leaders. Before election they used to visit this peoples on account of vote. Give some money for desi wine ( hanria ) or ‘hari’ which they enjoy this desi wine in their festival . Here we meet many people and come to know about their society , their pecuniary condition, their social and cultural aspects.
When I asked him about their language , he told ” Alchiki “. I am awared about it. Because I have so many students from tribals who are from modern generations and trying to have higher education in college and University. Both the villages have some students of HS . One or two children have passed 10 examination, but mostly are devoid of education.
Religion and Beliefs:
They have believe in religion. They worship ” Marang Guru ” as their God. Their religion name is “SARNA “. Hari is main item in their Puja and other festival. Even they used to feed their children “Hari” at first day rice whom we observe as Mukhe Bhat or Annoprasan.
Financial Crisis They are to face :
The Tribals are very simple. Their homes are mainly maid of muds and the roofs are of tin . Some of them work in fields as a labourer. But most of them have no employments. They’re asking me for any job. Politicians visit these villages before election and promise them for jobs. But their dreams never come true. Some of them work in the forest casual basis for a long time, years after years, but they have not given a permanent job that they can able to spend a happy life.
We can provide some foods or blankets or dresses. We can give them primary education. But it’s highly needed some embodiments for their livelihood.
Unemployment, both in general and SC ST OBC , everywhere are the problems of the hour. We request the company’s CSR department to come up with their utmost sources for helping these poor people of the underprivileged sections of the society as if they could able to make their livelihood smoothly. Thank you and welcome.
Be safe , be happy in new year, 2021. God bless you all. Vaccine is in final process and first dose has been already trialed in every province.
From midnight 12 am , New Year 2021 starts its journey for the next 365 days until it reaches another New Year of 2022. At present all most all the official works and activities are maintained according to English Calendar. But there is another event we also regard it with great respect, that’s Kalpataru Sri Ramakrishna Diwas .
WHY ENGLISH CALENDAR !
From monthly salary to grocery store the accounts and transactions are made following to English Calendar. So we enjoy the new year day as a holiday. British Government ruled out our country more than 2 hundred years.
We used to follow up with their culture and tradition since then . If we try our best to remove all these practices from our lives , it will not be proper as per our own Indian tradition.
Because , we have been made accommodation in our ways to living with all the diversities which we had to face in course of our journey generation after generation.
FOREIGN INVADE : KALPATARU SRI RAMAKRISHNA AND TAGORE
Foreign rulers invaded our country and established here and gradually they’re becoming our own neighborhood. We have been accustomed to their culture and practices.
Aryan came here first , then Shak , Hun ,Pathan, Mughol and lastly English ruled out country. We became united. There’s no other way than minglingwith them. Humanist Poet,Rabindranath Tagore wrotein a poem ” Bharattirtha” :
“Eso he Arya , eso anarya , eso he Dravid Chin / Shak Hun Dall Pathan Mughol Aek Dehe Holo Leen.” ( Come Aryan, come non – Aryan , come Dravid Chin , Shak Hun Dall Pathan Mughol United in a one body. )
NEW YEARFESTIVAL : KALPATARU SRI RAMAKRISHNA
One poet remarks: ” East and West shall never meet.” But in this case, I mean, about NewYears Festival , we are not conservative at all. We are celebrating this fest with full of joy and merriment. But it’s not our matter of discourse . Today is a memorable day in the history of Sri Ramakrishna spiritual movement and Ramkrishna Mission .
KALPATARU DIWAS : SRIRAMAKRISHNA
1 st January is regarded as Kalpataru Day by the devotees and followers of Ramkrishna Mission and Math . It’s celebrated in all centers of Math and Mission in India and in the Vedanta centers of out side of India.
What is the significance of Kalpataru Utsav or festival ? Why it’s sacred day?
KALPATARU DIWAS : SRI RAMKRISHNA
1st January, is regarded by millions of his household devotees as Kalpataru Day because it was on this day in 1886 that Sri Ramakrishna showered on a select few who had gathered in the Cassipore Garden House, his wish fulfilling blessings.
From that momentous day onwards the day has come to be observed in Kalpataru Day, the day when the great Guru reappears, as it were, to bliss his disciples year after year.
Now Kalpataru Day has become as sacred as his birthday when devotees throng the Ramkrishna Maths the world over to pay their obeisance and seek his blessings, again and again.
It’s true that His followers believe that Sri Ramakrishna revealed himself to be an Avatar or God Incarnate on earth. It’s classified as one of the “Lords special festivals by the followers of Sri Ramakrishna.
The first January, 1886 Kalpataru Day, was an event of unusual consequence and meaning in the life of Ramkrishna and His followers.
HISTORY BEHIND KALPATARU
Ramkrishna was suffering from throat cancer at that time, and his health was declining. He and His closest followers had moved to garden house in the northern Kolkata neighborhood of Cassipore.
1 st January was relatively good day for Him. He took a walk in the garden. There He asked one of His followers, Girish ( a great drama writer and poet of Bengali literature) , a question He had often asked before, ” Who do you say that I am? “.
Girish replied that he believed that Ramkrishna was ‘God Incarnate’ , come to earth out of mercy for mankind.’
Ramkrishna then replied, ” What more shall I say ? May you be awakened. Ramkrishna then entered an ” ecstatic state ” and began touching all of His followers present there.
THE COSMIC FEELING
Those He touched reported experiencing a variety of new states of consciousness , including vivid visions. For one Vaikuntha, the visions persisted and interfered with daily life, so that he feared that he might be going insane.
Another disciple, Sri Ramchandra Dutta, explained that Ramkrishna had in effect become Kalpataru, the wish fulfilling tree of Sanskrit literature and Hindu mythology. Datta named the commomoration of this mystical event ” Kalpataru Day” as a result.
The event carried meanings and memories of cosmic import for the disciples and also prepared them for Ramkrishna’s death , which occurred only a few months later, on 16 August, 1886 .
So , Our new years celebrationis something different from others. We regard this first day of every new year worshipping Bhagawan Sri Ramakrishna.
We pray to Him . This year we, along with the members of Vivekananda Vani Prochar Somity went to visit two interior village of Tribals to distribute blanket and lunches to the poor tribal folks. In Kalpataru Sri Ramakrishna Diwas it is our duty to serve the poor as Shiva. So we did . They’re very poor . We spent some time with them. And aftergetting Prosad ( lunch), wereturned home.
This was a very interesting events which we enjoyed today.
Hope my readers haveto spend a pleasant day. Happy new year to you all. Stay healthy and be peaceful. Kalpataru Sri Ramkrishna will bless us with a delightfullife.
Our country produces so many great teacher who sacrificed their lives for the betterment of education and its true implementation in the society. We can give examples from Vidyasagar to Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan .
TRUE TEACHER: VIDYASAGAR
Vidyasagar came from a poor Brahmin priest family. He continued his learning in High School to College & University through hard labour. He used to teach students as a tutor and after that he did continue his higher studies.
When he was a teacher and next head pandit of Sanskrit college, he used to provide financial help to the poor students. He was a social reformer and also the pioneer of Bengali prose .
WHO ISA TRUE TEACHER ?
..A good teacher is he who always look after his or her student’s future . As a teacher, Vidyasagar emphasised on the women education and opened first girls school with the help of Bethune Saheb in North Kolkata ( formerly Calcutta) in Bidon Street near Swami Vivekananda’s ancestral home. It’s now famous Bethune College.
A teacher should have the quality of sacrifice andthe power to change a student’s life. And that’s what a teacher from the state of Maharashtra did. He took a stand for promoting girls education and changed the lives of many girls.
In modern times, it’s very rare to be found such kind of mentality and sacrifice which a primary teacher are trying to implement in our society. We came to know from various sources of communication that a primary teacher of Maharashtra was awarded a big amountofmoneyfrom UK .
A TEACHER OF MAHARASHTRA : A TRUE TEACHER
The news published on 3rd December 2020 that Shri Ranjitsinh Disale , a teacher from Solapur district, Maharashtra won the Global Teacher Prize 2020 with a cash prize of$1-million.
But it’s matter of great pleasure that he shared this money with the co-perticipants though he was the only owner of this prize, so far as I concern from the news agency.
We all know that Covid pandemic has been changed our lives in many respects . Still now students are not allowed to attend the schools and colleges . So we have to take help of digital media like Google meet and other apps .
During interview this teacher said, ” The Covid-19 pandemic has exposed education and the communities it serves in a multitude of ways. But in this hard time, teachers are giving their best to make sure every student has access to their birthright of a good education.”
STUDENT WAITS FOR SUPPORT:
It’s absolutely right what he said about teacher’s duty. Students always wait for the teachers to get assistance in their problems with learning.
Hence teacher should have been always catious about the lessons which are given to them. Whether they’re in comfort in study or not , it’s to be taken information by the teachers about it .
TEACHER’S EFFORTS :
He thinks that this work is not possible for an individual efforts. It’s the works of all the teachers. He remarked in this respect ,
” Teachers are who are changing the lives of their students with a mixture of chalk and challenges. They always believe in giving and sharing “.
SACRIFICE OF TEACHER :
And, he started again :
” therefore, I am very pleased to announce that I will share 50% of the prize money the real change-makers equally among my fellow, top 10 finalists to support their incredible work. Because I believe , together we can make a difference and we can make this world a better place.
He believes he is not alone the winner, so he declared that the money will be disbursed equal among all the rest 9 top 10 finalists.
His attitude towards growing and sharing has put a mark that we should learn to share because if we will share then only wecan grow together.
A TRUE TEACHER :
Ranjitsinh is a teacher of a village school . Generally , there’s no infrastructure in the school of Villages . Neither classroom, nor sufficient teachers are available there .
However , he reached first time at the Zilla Parishad Primary School at Paritewadi in Solapur in 2009, it was a dilapidated building, sandwiched between a cattleshed and a storeroom.
FIRST GENERATION : STUDENTS
Most of the girls in the school were from tribal communities. You know they are first generation getting education . So their attendance was very low. Sometimes it could be as low as 2% .
And again child marriage was very common. Some students were unable to understand the textbooks . Because it was not in their primary language(Kannada).
But Ranjitsinhdid not give up hope . He sympathically thought about the situation .
He learned Kannada and taught them by translating the textbooks to their local language.So being a less payment primary teacher he had to learn another new language which is very very difficult to achieve. He did it. It’s his good will and sacrifice for the benefit of the students.
We came to know from him that he also started QR coded textbooks by the help of which students could learn through video lectures, audio poems and stories. And later his school became the first in the Maharashtra to use QR coded textbooks.
In 2017 state ministry decided to introduce QR coded textbooks for classes 1-12. Following which in 2018 NCERT also introduced QR codedtextbooks. It’s a modern techniques to impart education to the students.
His school is in a drought-prone district of Maharashtra but he has tackled with this issue also by increasing green land from 25% to 33% in the last ten years. In all, 250 hectares of land surrounding his village was saved from desertification, earning his school the ‘Wipro Nature for Society’ award in 2018.
CEO of Microsoft (Satya Nadela) has recognized Ranjitsinh’s work as one of three stories from India in his book Hit Refresh. He has won the Innovative Researcher of the Year 2016 award and he has also won the National Innovation Foundation’s Innovator of the Year award in 2018.
He has communicated his methods by writing more than 500 newspaper articles and blogs, as well as participating in television discussions on educational topics.
He is a teacher with utmost respect who has dedicated his life for girls education and now all his work has made tremendous impact. Teenage marriages has stopped in that place and the school is having 100% attendance of girls. Therefore , only possible for a devotional teacher which is very rare in modern generation.
Our country needs such kind of teachers who can change the poor position of Indian women and their livelihood. And for this need hundreds of idle teachers like Ranjitsinth are highly appreciated in India.
Only such persons are fit to undertake the work of teaching as are thoroughly educated and virtuous. -. Swami Dayanand
