Dr. Radhakrishnan has very well said “A life of joy and happiness is possible only on the basis of knowledge and science”. Education is considered a basic right for all. But in earlier times, our elders were not fortunate enough to receive this valuable gift of education. To rectify that point of missing out on valuable education, Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan has launched a new initiative called Syahi. It is an adult literacy centre in which basic education is provided to the adults to enable them to live a better life. Many such centres have been opened in multiple areas. 9th Adult Literacy Center was inaugurated in Nehru place on 11 August 2019. The inauguration was held at Geeta Mandir from 10.30 am to 1 pm. The event started with prayers in lotus feet of the Lord followed by lamp lighting and felicitation ceremony.
Students performed a welcome song for the guests followed by a skit. Testimonies were then provided by the students from Dwarka existing centre. The enrolled students of the centre were then presented with ID cards and stationery kits were also distributed to them. Students from Badli centre presented a classical dance on Madhuram. A video briefing the work done by Syahi was then displayed to the chief guests. Chief guest of this event was Senior advocate, Monika Arora. Esteemed guests of the event were Tulsi Joshi Ji (Counselor of R. K. Puram, Chairperson South Zone SDMC), Dr. Nandini Sharma Ji (Counselor of Malviya Nagar), Shri Omprakash Dhingra Ji (President Geeta Bhawan, Malviya Nagar), N.K. Batra Ji (General Secretary Geeta Bhavan Mandir Samiti), Mohan Batra Ji (Member, Geeta Bhavan Mandir Samiti), Gyanchand Batra Ji (Member, Geeta Bhavan Mandir Samiti), Santpal Chutani Ji (Member, Geeta Bhavan Mandir Samiti), Mahendra Kumar Ji (Bangal Sweets, Malviya Nagar) and Chitra Ji (President Sanatan Dharm Mandir). Towars the ending note, a patriotic dance was performed by the Badli centre students on ‘Kandhon se milte h kandhe’. Their performance was appreciated by one and all. Sadhvi Deepa Bharti, Program Coordinator Manthan SVK, DJJS concluded the event by vote of thanks. All the guests of the event appreciated the selfless efforts of the organization and the multifarious works done by it. They pledged to be a part of the initiative in future as well.
