With the sole inspiration of His Holiness Ashutosh Maharaj ji, one more feather in Manthan's cap is added with the inauguration ceremony of Manthan center in Dabua Colony, Faridabad.
So far 30 students of different age groups and different learning levels have taken admission in the new center and all the students are non school goers and mostly belong to the rag pickers community. The survey analysis of the area shows that these children are all first generation learners. Within its operation since one month, children are showing dire interest in learning the basic concepts and studying. When asked, in which school do you study ? They say in chorus Manthan, as it is their first school and first experience. So far, children have learnt self-introduction and hygiene practices and for the very first time the newly admitted students very passionately recited poems on the inaugural stage. Ceremony started with the enchanting prayer by the students followed by Vedic chanting. The eminent guests and potential sponsors present on the occasion were: Shri Nagendra Bhadana, MLA, Shri Satish Arora, Shri Naim Chandra Garg, Sardar Goga Singh, Shri ram Juneja, Sardar Avtaar Singh and Shri Kishan Dang. Students from Gurgaon and Shakurpur Manthan centers presented enthralling dance performances on patriotic songs and won the hearts of the audience present.
All were astonished to see the radical change in children and appreciated this educational cause and initiative of DJJS.
