Retirement - poem by S S Dogra

Education must transform


Over the years, with competition getting tougher every year and seats getting fewer in college, the education system has still not changed. Here is a look into the current education system in India and how we need to change it.

To deliberate on the purpose of education of education, let’s go by tracing its roots. It is popularity known to be derived from the Latin word ‘edu co’-which means ‘to educe’ or draw out’. There are some other root words too, like, ‘Educare’ which means ‘to bring up’ and ‘Educare’ which means ‘to draw out from within’. Education, rather a good and purposeful education, should act as a stimulant for a students’ mind. It should be able to draw the students to correlate what they read in the text-books with the real world around them. Educating a child is not filling up his mind with all kinds of facts and figures, but to ignite his/her mind to find, explore, analyze and learn. The vital need is to develop love for learning and interest to know more and more. Once this goal is attained, the ground for ‘good and meaningful education’ is ready. It is “though” a creative process which eventually develops overall personality of the children. Through this, we can transform the students into dynamic and result oriented citizens with a mind of their own and with the courage to mouth their opinion to go beyond instructing from the book. Arousing the curiosity of students is perhaps one of the most important aspects of teaching-learning because once this is done, a student starts making self driven effort to explore and learn on his own. Here group dynamics plays a major role too. Therefore, there should be a strong emphasis on participatory learning, group work and collaborative projects. This enhances the emotional quotient of children and the spirit of team work, collaboration, respecting each other’s view point and sharing opinions without offence. This mind training is of utmost important a team.

When we talk about transformation, yes education must transform the mind, soul and personality. Therefore it is not only through knowledge but also through instilling value systems and life skills in children, so that they are not just equipped to earn a living but also to live a happy and purposeful life. Such righteous students become the sensitive citizens who lead to the evolution of enlightened and caring society. That should be the mission of education.

The purpose and mission of education guides are vision for the school. Does vision reflect a school having a big and fancy building? Having a big laboratory? Or having a big infrastructure? Not at all; Great schools must have great teachers who love teaching and with great vision. The vision should be to make a beautiful school which generates a safe, secure and happy environment for promoting exploration, creativity and real learning for the development of righteous youth who are an asset to the school, family, society, nation five minds for the future, as described by Howard Gardner - The disciplinary mind, the synthesizing mind, The creative mind, the respectful mind and the ethical mind.

No syllabus can teach such things; no textbook can develop such minds. It has to be imbibed in the overall culture and vision of the school. the creative approach of the school and the way of life of mod.

Coming to the final and most important aspect of the right approach to education ‘who should be the centre of education, if we revisit our vision, mission, purpose and outcome; all of them lead to a single objective. It is ‘the child’, who must be central to all experiences leading to learning therefore good school must aim at providing a secure and encouraging environment that strengths, develop life skills, productive habits and sensitivity for fellows and society and courage to speak his/her mind..

To impart education that brings transformation in the child, the school may not have fancy building or five star commodities but it must have holistic curriculum, engaged children, motivated teachers, assured parents, and inspiring role-models.

Giraffe Heroes India invites nominations from all over India

The Giraffe Heroes India Program

A Giraffe Hero is a person who sticks his or her neck out on sustainable basis, for public good, at huge personal risk. Giraffe Heroes India Program is an off-shoot of non-profit Giraffe Heroes Project which was started in USA in 1984, by Ann Medlock. The aim of starting this Project was to find out unknown heroes of the society, commend them as Giraffes for sticking their necks out & get their stories told on radio, television & in print. Giraffe stories would tell the people that there was headway being made on the problems of the world, that there were individuals who had solutions & the courage to move into action. The stories would move people`s souls & get them moving on public problems that mattered to them.


February 2, 2004 was a very special day for me. On this day, I received a letter from Ann Medlock, the Founder of Giraffe Heroes Project which said:

`I am happy to tell you that you were chosen by our most recent jury to receive the enclosed Giraffe Commendation, joining over 900 people who have been honored as Giraffe Heroes since the Giraffe Project began in 1982.’ The letter stated that this was for sticking my neck out to fight corruption in civil government.

It was unbelievable! I had received the Red & White Bravery Award in 2002, but this Giraffe Commendation came at a difficult time and was a HUGE morale-booster! It was a matter of great honour, pride & privilege to be ONE of the distinguished family of Giraffes. My years of trodding on the lonely path, which was very rough & uneven at times, had finally brought me to the doors of a family consisting of brave, caring & committed people.

I was still in the local government of New Delhi, fighting a long legal battle with my own organization. I had filed a case in the High Court in 1993, for a look into the unethical & unfair practices followed by my seniors which had resulted, to my mind, in a huge misuse of public funds. They were encouraging, pampering & protecting unethical colleagues, at the same time that they were harassing & hounding me in every possible way. I was making a stand for professional values & ethics. My good record was changed to damaging assessments of my work, making it impossible for me to advance in my career.

I finally won the legal battle, arguing the case myself against the organization in which I had worked since 1969. In May of 2004 I was appointed the Chief Engineer[civil]-HEAD of my Department.

Why have I given my personal example? It’s about something Ann mentioned in her letter. She said, “the aim is to tell others about you so that they will follow your example.” And that is the aim of this new organization, Giraffe Heroes India. This new non-governmental organization will tell the stories of India’s heroes, so that people all over the country can be inspired to stand tall on public problems they see.

Being appointed DIRECTOR of the Giraffe Heroes India Programme, is a matter of great honour & privilege for me. But having said that, it brings with it huge responsibilities. I’ll be rallying supporters for the cause, calling for nominations, organizing a jury, enlisting media to tell the stories.

But, I am happy to tell you that there have already been very enthusiastic & positive responses & I am confident that Giraffe Heroes India will start kicking soon like the operations in Sierra Leone, Egypt, Nepal & the UK.

I welcome your ideas and support.

With best wishes to all & for Giraffe Heroes India

Looms of Ladakh, inspiring the world through women empowerment

Ladakh is undoubtedly an amazing place to visit and we all wish to settle down in such beautiful places don’t we? But we often forget that sustaining a livelihood is really difficult in these beautiful areas. The people of Ladakh are hard-working as they survive there in harsh weather conditions. The primary occupation of the locals includes agriculture based on the Indus River for their livelihood. Barley, wheat, buckwheat, peas, rapeseed and beans are the main agricultural products. Apples and apricots are grown in warmer regions of low altitude.

Changthang is a part of the high altitude Tibetan Plateau in western and northern Tibet extending into south-eastern Ladakh, India, with vast highlands and giant lakes. The communities living here follow their traditional occupation of rearing long-haired goats and sheep to earn their livelihood by trading the wool, which is another primary occupation of the locals. These herdsmen are called Chang-pas. Changthang is also known as the cradle of finest cashmere or pashmina.

Recently it was noticed that the locals started following the trend of migration. The Chang-pas started migrating to Leh and other urban settlements for a better lifestyle. This became a major concern as it might affect their way of life. Another reason for major concern was that the locals living there are sentinels of the border, hence it was important to find a way of keeping the locals motivated to earn their livelihood there itself.

This issue was acknowledged by Looms of Ladakh (launched in July 2016). Through the project Laksal which means 'skills' in Ladakhi language, the project aims to train the unemployed women of these communities to make finished products with resources which are available to them like pasmina, yak, camel, sheep wool. These finished products are hand knitted and hand woven.

The motive behind the project Laksal is to stop the locals who are migrating in search of better livelihood options, by giving the women of the community, an opportunity of forming women cooperative.

Birth of the idea
Deputy Commissioner of Leh, G. Prasanna Ramaswamy on one of his district tours to Chumur IAS, noticed the women knitting beautiful garments for their family. This was when this idea stuck him to hone the women’s innate skills along with introducing weaving, so that they make marketable products.

On many of their exhibition visits, G. Prasanna Ramaswamy and Abhilasha Bahuguna (his wife) were surprised on not finding Changthang Ladakh pashmina sellers, and they discussed the strategy of promoting Pashmina products with the help of the women of the particular community to highlight the best quality pasmina. Everybody else was selling Pashmina and everything under the brand name using the cooked up marketing tactic of fabled Pashmina shawl that can pass through a ring when genuine fabric cannot pass through a ring. So they strategized and worked together on Project Laksal to create the brand Looms of Ladakh. Other likeminded and dedicated officers and individuals joined hands to contribute in the success story of Looms of Ladakh Women Cooperative.

Their aim was to establish sustainable Pashmina, Bactrian camel and Yak wool small scale industry with responsible environment impact in Ladakh. This was very essential so that the locals can remarkably benefit from their own ecosystem; this high end raw material comes from.

With their observations over many visits to the place, a comprehensive scheme was laid out.

This self help group includes women of eight villages namely Chuchot, Pheyang, Kharnakling, Stok, Chuchul, Merak, Perma and Sato. 150 women are working under an executive body. Looms of Ladakh has tie ups with financial partners and designers who are helping this self help group of women to reach a desired goal. This is a perfect example of using traditional skills and achieving a sustainable production.

How are they different from other retail entrepreneurs in cashmere, Yak and Sheep wool?
· They don't work for any entrepreneur.
· They are entrepreneurs without schooling.
· They hire management graduate, but they themselves take care of other executive functions.
· They have office bearers like Chief Executive Officers, Cashier and product officers who are not schooled but wise and passionate enough to run the cooperative. These positions are elected every two years. So one who is CEO this year can be a member after two years. Similarly, a member can be elected as a CEO.
· A certain percentage goes to the members and rest is kept for buying raw materials next season and paying bills. Some amount is kept for welfare funds for the members who can get small loans for health and child education only.
· Social audit are also done of the women cooperative to maintain understanding, motivation and transparency among the team.
· They are also working for insurance and other artisan benefits for the members.

They are not just entrepreneurs, but social entrepreneurs, they are together entrepreneurs working for themselves. The work of these women is being appreciated not only in the national market, but also in the international market. They are now an inspiration for others.

The Roving Feet


The Delhi Declaration announced by recently held Global Transport Minister’s forum on Road Safety held in the National Capital which was attended by Transport Ministers from various countries has stressed on encourage all the car manufactures to sign up to a UN agreement on minimum vehicle safety standards, covering passive and active safety requirements including making fitting of Electronic Stability Control (ESC) systems mandatory for all new vehicles by all the governments worldwide including India.

The Global Transport Ministers forum on Road Safety was organised by International Road Federation (IRF), a Geneva based global road safety body working for better and safer roads world wide in New Delhi on November 14, 2017 and was attended by Transport Ministers from various countries including Russia, Canada, Finland, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Burundi, Lesotho, Luxembourg along with FIA President and UN special envoy on road safety Jean Todt. The conference was inaugurated by Union health and Family welfare minister Mr J P Nadda along with Mr Yudhvir Malik, Secretary, Minitry of Road Transport and Highways (moRTH)

Some of major countries including Canada and Australia have already made installation of Electronic Stability Control (ESC) mandatory in all new vehicles. Electronic stability control (ESC) is an active safety feature designed to reduce the number and severity of motor vehicle crashes that result from a loss of control. ESC provides traction and anti-skid support in cases of over steering and under steering. Over-steering occurs when the vehicle continues to turn beyond the driver’s steering input because the rear end is sliding outwards. Under-steering occurs when the vehicle turns less than the driver’s steering input because the wheels have insufficient traction.

ESC systems are made up of several computer/sensor subcomponents that are monitored and controlled by an electronic control unit (ECU)..The ECU continually retrieves information from these sensors and compiles the data to determine if any difference exists between the driver’s steering input and the vehicle’s actual direction of travel.

ESC is very effective at reducing the number of severe motor vehicle crashes involving both passenger cars and sport utility vehicles (SUVs). As per various studies ESC reduces fatal single-vehicle crash risk by 49%, and fatal multiple-vehicle crash risk by 20% for both cars and SUVs ESC also helps prevent rollovers. Some of major car manufcaturers inlcuding BMW, Audi, Toyota and Ford are already producing cars fitted with ESC systems in some of their models.

“The other recommendations made by Transport Minister’s forum include providing access to safe, affordable, accessible and sustainable transport systems for all, improving road safety, notably by expanding public transport, with special attention to the needs of those in vulnerable situations, women, children, persons with disabilities and older persons by the year 2030,” said MR K K Kapila, Chairman, International Road Federation (IRF) releasing the recommendations today .

“Scaling up road safety efforts by reaffirming the importance of improving road management systems and to introduce road safety audits for new construction projects and road safety assessment programmes and star rating systems for the existing networks and recognise the need for capacity building to this effect. Emphasizing on the need to strengthen pre-hospital care, including emergency health services and the immediate post-crash response, through the implementation of appropriate legislation, capacity-building and improvement of timely access to health care.” He said.

“Governments should Commit to implement professional driver qualification frameworks, including training, certification and licensing, restricted hours of driving and working conditions with focus on addressing the main causes of accidents or crashes involving heavy commercial vehicles. Also commit to enhance road safety culture of all road users through road safety education in schools and awareness programmes, particularly in developing countries. “ he added.

“Children are the world’s most valuable resource and its best hope for the future”. – John F. Kennedy

Children are unique and divine gifts of God. They are lovable and innocent angels. They are full of smiles when they receive love and appreciation. When infants grow, they learn about the basic virtues in life from their mothers, while on mothers’ laps, and at mothers’ feet. The father also plays his role in giving moral support and emotional security to the child and defends their child from the external bad influences and threats. Both parents are thus sources of encouragement and support to the child, at home. Thus, values are imbibed by the tiny tots at home. The tiny tots learn by example and standards set by parents at home. Children give unconditional love. They truly symbolize Lord Krishna. In fact, there is a Krishna in every child. Children’s qualities such as inner purity, simplicity, innocence and love and a sense of belonging distinguish their behaviour from adults.

The transition from a home environment to a school surrounding is imperative for the child. Education in India has become so competitive that nowadays it is common for children at the age of three years to be put in play school. Its advantages are multi-fold:

* The child learns to stay for a few hours away from parents and loved ones. In turn, parents find extra time to attend to other work.

* The child learns to mingle with other children and gains a new sense of belonging with friends of the same age in play school.

* The child learns to share toys with other children. This is especially very beneficial for a child with no siblings.

* A child is generally highly energetic and very fidgety and gets distracted easily. At play school, the child is trained to acquire and inculcates a longer time span of attention.

Useful Tips for Parents to Prepare their Children for Admission to Play School

1. Children must be able to wish and say their names to the interviewers.
2. They must know and be able to recite simple nursery rhymes, say letters of the English alphabet from A to Z and numbers say up to 20.
3. They must be able to identify colours, simple fruits and vegetables, and basic shapes like circle and square.
4. Children may be asked to identify common vehicles like car, bus, helicopter, aeroplane, ship, and common animals like elephant, dog, cat, monkey, horse, etc.

5. The child may be interviewed in front of the parents in schools. Parents should not prompt the child to answer any question. Doing this might disqualify the child for admission.

6. Teach your child not to interrupt when you are speaking and await their turn to speak.

7. Teach a child to say thank you by having them hear you say it. No matter how young they are, never forget to say thank you to them each time they give you something, even if it is their bottle. Children copy what they see and hear so make it a point to always use those words.

8. Teach them not to touch things that are on tables, either in your home or when visiting. Explain that they can look, but not touch!

9. Teach your child to be polite and that it is not proper to point or to stare at others who might be of a different religion or colour.

10. Children should be dressed neatly and must be trained in matters regarding personal hygiene. For example, children must use their own handkerchief. Parents must avoid using their handkerchief to wipe their child’s nose.

At home, while preparing the child for the above questions, the parents would do well to praise the child adequately for any correct answer so that it serves as a motivation for the child. However, the parents must also desist from scolding or beating the child in order to get the right answer.

The personality of the child also plays a significant role in the interview. Some children, being bold, answer very confidently; while others may be tongue-tied; still other children may show no interest in answering the questions. Efforts must be made by parents to identify the second and third types of children and remedial measures must be taken by parents by their behaviour and attitude towards their children, to set this right much before hand.

Because of the rat race, admission to a good school is a very important task for the parents and many of them take it as a burden in addition to their professional duties and household work. It must be remembered that a good school facilitates character building and inculcating ethical conduct, in addition to providing quality education.
