Bodh witnessed the change in the mindsets of 800-900 students gathered in the assembly, premises with their 50 male teachers in the presence of school authorities, when they were facilitated with live demonstrations and lectures on
‘Identify the Good & the Bad
‘Resist the Bad in your Life’.
‘Be Assertive in Saying no to Drugs’
Sadvi Anuradha Bharti ji, the disciple of His Holiness, Ashutosh Maharaj ji introduced the organisation, Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan and its initiative, Bodh, (Drug Abuse Eradication Program) along with its multifaceted and multifarious activities.
Likewise, it was indeed a site worth noticing when students were presented with a skit performed by the team of dedicated volunteers under the ongoing Bodh Campaign in Rohini, New Delhi. The title of the Nukkad Natak was ‘ Pehle maza aur phir Saza’, portraying how mere experimentation with drugs out of curiosity, inquisitiveness, trend, peer pressure, boredom leads one to the deep pit of addiction. Mr. Ravinder Singh, an eminent skit player, who was portrayed as the character of an addict enacted it justifiably that the whole assembly area was filled with clappings after his performances. In which case, those students and others who were present in the workshop seemed totally engrossed as they were also able to grasp the message regarding the effects of Drug Abuse, addiction and the causes leading a man into its entrapment, which the skit clearly conveyed. Even the variation in the expressions of the students was so visible. Suppose, their expressions changed from one state of assumption into the other state of perspective, with regard to the hurdles, sufferings and countless other varied fluctuations, which the protagonist of the play goes through in life. After that eye-opening skit, Sadhvi Shitabha Bharti Ji, disciple of Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji, head and Founder, Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan and also the In charge of Bodh, the drug abuse eradication program of DJJS, delivered a profound and very well structured speech, titled, 'Identification and Assertion of the Good', highlighting the various situations and offerings that students between the age groups of 14-25 may opt for, under any external circumstance or out of innate curiosity. For example, a lot of young citizens in the contemporary time period are often observed to have been desirous in trying a cigarette, wanting to booze, consume drugs and are always keen in wishing to chew tobacco products. This is how; Sadhvi ji, also an expert on the subject matter sensitized the target groups in deriving skills for the resistance of the bad from within, which, otherwise leads every being into the deep well of darkness and downfall. She also presented before them a case study of an innate devotee of God, Prahlad, extracting from the Hindu Mythology, in order for assisting them access the concept understandably.
Finally, the students were truly motivated to the extent that they also determined to fight for this hazardous menace of Drug Abuse and addiction by means of awareness and complete abandonment. In this way, since this workshop sowed the seeds of positivity and optimism in the growing minds of the recipients, the organizers are thankfully hopeful that this effort shall make a lot of difference in the society in times to come.
