IITian plans medical camps in his native place
The following is one of the students a member of NSS, IIT Kharagpur central team; term ended in April, 2012 and a new student team has taken over. They were not assigned to any specific village / slum but traveled various units to cover MGNREGA awarness camp in one village to caste certificate camp in other or the 150th birth anniversary of Vivekananda in the third etc. Besides, they published NSS Newsletter, maintained NSS website and participated other central activities.
During my frst year I was a part of literacy group of Prof. P. Guha. I was involved in teaching students of Ambedkar club and Disha Seema Centre initially and then moved to teaching children at the Congress centre outside IIT campus where i taught children of mess workers. Me and imbesat also taught children of cleaning staff of MMM hall in our room. We also taught a student naed Imran for AIEEE in last few weeks
During the beginning of second year me and imbesat had prepared a two year schedule to teach students for engineering entrance exams. We had conducted a test and selected 20 students for the same(with the help of Prof. Saha during last weeks of 1st year) but could continue more than 4 classes due to lack of proper venue. During the rest of my 2nd year I have been a part of NSS central team and my job has been to write articles for the NSS newsletter and cover events organised/facilitated by NSS.
This summers I will be a part of awareness drive organized with the help of respective govt. of Bihar and jharkhand for a duration of 25 days. Saif and Imbesat will also be there. After that in June i will be conducting medical camps in village near Bathinda, Punjab my home town with the help of an NGO Seva Bharti which I am a part of. This society organises medical camps for poor and also coducts games and other awareness campaigns in rural areas of Punjab. During my stay in NSS for past 2 years I have learnt a lot and I am happy to contribute on my behalf for the betterment of the society.
