In a function organised by BJYM, 100 kids belonging to lower class of the society were given scholarships for further studies. The BJYM had conducted a survey of 1600 houses, to promote the importance of education among poor kids.
BHARTIYA JANTA Yuva Morcha (BJYM), a youth wing of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) headed by Rajiv Babbar, conducted a survey of 1600 houses of JJ Colony, Harijan Basti of Tilak Nagar, to promote education among schedule castes (SCs) and schedule tribes (STs). During the survey, they shortlisted 422 kids appearing for their tenth and 12th exams, to encourage them to set a certain percentage of marks as target for them and accordingly if they achieved the given target they will be given scholarship for further studies. As per the result, 100 kids achieved the target and they were awarded scholarship by Vijay Kumar Malhotra (senior BJP leader), Sushma Swaraj, Dr Harsh Vardhan, during a function organised at Mavalankar Hall, New Delhi.
On this occasion to convey a social message to kids and guests, a play ’Vivekananda’ by Shekhar Sen was shown. ’Vivekananda’ is a mono act musical play in Hindi, which discloses the making of this great rebel saint who changed the history with his vision and work. This two hour long play tells the stories of his childhood, impact of Brahmo Samaj, eagerness to find god and meeting the great mentor Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and thus the making of Swami Vivekananda. The unforgettable Chicago speech, which brought India
and Hinduism in the limelight in 1893, establishes his love for humanity and seeing the world
as one family. Written, composed and enacted by Sen, this ’Shilpkaar’ presentation is committed to bring awareness by enlightening the minds with Vivekananda’s revolutionary thoughts.
On this occasion, a video about how the whole concept of ’Ek Kaam Desh Ke Naam’ was put into work was shown, the video also showed the tears of happiness of kids on having qualified for the scholarship.
Sushma Swaraj said that the Vivekananda play and scholarship programme have a co-relation as it shows the struggle of Vivekananda’s life to do something for the country same as through this programme our activists are trying to do something for the society. It was just the first step towards educating the society and our organisation will continue with the work in future.
Vijay Kumar Malhotra congratulated Babbar and his team on coming up with such a good concept and its successful implementation.
During the programme, OP Babbar, Raj Kumar Behl, Vani Tripathi, Pankaj Singh, Dr Harsh Vardhan and others were also present.
Babbar said that "the motive behind starting this kind of project was simple, to increase the importance of education among the lower class of the society and do something away from politics for our country that is why we named the whole programme Ek Kaam Desh Ke Naam...."
