Abode for the abandoned : Abalashrama

Abode for the abandoned
Abalashrama is an institution that nurtures and rehabilitates women who have taken a beating in life.

THE HANDSOME young man, educated and doing very well in Mumbai has come to Basavanagudi to make his pilgrimage. He has a tight schedule, but there's always time for his beloved Abalashrama. He spends some time at the institution, reminiscing, looking at the prayer hall and roaming around the spacious lounge. He silently salutes what was once his home.

Such thanksgiving visits are not uncommon. His mother was young and pregnant when she lost her husband. Abandoned by relatives, the hapless girl had no one to turn to. She managed for a while, and when her baby was a year old, turned up at the Abalashrama seeking refuge. The institution took her in, something it has been doing for nearly a century now.
Abalashrama, located at one of the busiest places in Bangalore, D.V.G. Road, was started by the late Chakravarthy Venkata Varada Iyengar. Available records speak …

Improving with adoption :: Rashtrottan parishat

Primary education is the most neglected field. A majority of children attend school for less than five years and drop out. A dismal 16 per cent of the children complete seven years in school. The conditions in government schools are not encouraging for good learning.Hence the Government of Karnataka invited public participation in an attempt to bring about the overall development of schools. The initiative is laudable since it appeals to the public to adopt government schools. Many individuals and organizations have come forward and lent their support for this programme.

Sevabharathi, a unit of Rashtrothana Parishat, works with children from marginal sections and provides them education and vocational training. Corporates and philanthropic organizations have supported the programme and adopted 6 government schools last year. A total of 1000 children in the age group of 10-12 years studying in the 5, 6 and 7th standards were part o…

Balagokulam, the children's movement, was founded during the middle of 1970 in Kerala. Sri . M.A. Krishnan, the then Editor of "KESARI" weekly took the initiative to organise this movement to counter the cultural deterioration caused by the drawbacks of our education system.
Those were the days when Rashtreeya Swayamsevak Sangh was spreading throughout the length and breadth of Kerala chanting the mantra of Hindu awakening. The workers took Balagokulam as the powerful medium for spreading the message of this awakening. The encouragement given by Sri Yadav Rao Joshi, the then Dakshin Kshetriya Pracharak (Organiser for South India) of RSS and Sri Bhaskar Rao, the then Pranth Pracharak (State Organizer, Kerala) was invaluable. Many factors came in as helping hands to Balagokulam, viz., classes run by Sri Kunjunni Master, the scholar and the "Children's poet", the prayer penned by Sri. N.N. Kakkad, the AIR …

Sewa Bharati: "Bhatke Vimukta Vikas Pratishthana" Supporting the Pardhis

Yet, the Indian tribes constitute 8% of India's population, according to 1991 census. This too is misleading, as the last listing of tribal groups was done in 1976. Anthropological Survey insisted that there are 635 tribes in India. Yet Govt. of India recognised only 426 as tribes. 209 tribes were, and still are left out. If the total population of 635 tribes was counted, the percentage would go up. PEOPLE GROUP PARDHIS: Pardhis are one of the 150 communities the British notified as criminals in 1871. Though the republic denotified them in 1952, some six crore of them continue to be social outcasts and victims at the hands of the police. Phase Pardhis form one third of the five lakh Pardhi clan. History branded Phase Pardhis (Marathi for trap hunters) criminals and hounded them like beasts of prey. The stigma is still the curse of their life. 90 percent of Pardhis had no formal education. "Pardhis do not face any trouble from Muslim and Christian communities. It is the Hindus…

Jnana Prabodhini

Jnana Prabodhini Prashla The Jnana Prabodhini Prashala situated in the heart of Pune's Sadashiv peth is the dream come true for psychologist Dr. Vinayak Vishwanath Pendse who was awarded a doctorate for his thesis on leadership styles. After years of research Pendse concluded in his thesis that that the consultative style of leadership was rhe most effective one . He then decided to use this theory to develope a whole new generation of leaders who would solve the problems of society , whatever be their vocation in life.
