Varanasi Boat School - Reshaping Future of Children of River Ganga

In India, the country that is home for more than 120 Crores Human beings and out of them many are kids, literacy rate can really be a path breaking parameter in making or breaking the country. With so many resources required to teach all these children, it can really be a tedious task for the society and the Government. Even if we are able to manage the resources, the poverty can be one more hurdle in educating those kids as those kids would be forced to earn living not only for themselves but also for their family. The challenges for educating these kids can be reduced only if all the corners of society join hands together and put forward an honest effort, else we are going to suffer badly in the long run with so many kids growing up illiterate.

Such an effort is “Boat School” being run by an NGO Guria which is led by Ajeet Singh in the city of Varanasi. There are many kids can be seen on banks of river Ganga wasting their time without any hope as there is no one to give them any direction or hope. Boat school works for all those kids by providing them 2 hrs daily in the evening once they are done with their daily routine, the environment  on boat is set up in such a way that in these 2 hrs kids can play, learn or do whatever they want without any tension. These 2 hrs. will make kids feel better about themselves, they will learn things independently and also it will increase their focus towards importance of learning and studies. The times these kids used to waste on the streets or on banks of Ganga is being transformed into time these kids are spending in Ideal learning.

Hopes on Boat

This boat school initiative needs a lot of encouragement so that it can be transformed magically. The magical transformation includes: makeover of the interiors, a library, educational toys, stationery,a computer and a painting kit. This magical transformation will help in restoration and redecoration of the interiors to provide kids the necessary books, CDs, furniture and toys. As books, CDs are basic necessities for any learning activity, your support for these is must so that this initiative can prosper leaps and bounces and help Boat school do right things within right time. Then the success of Varanasi can be replicated in other such cities and villages of India so that other kids also can dream of living a successful life and helping India to grow. The Journey of doing right by “Boat School” must reach to all such kids and help them prosper in life.

The Varanasi Boat School needs your support and love in all forms possible so that Children of Ganga can also dream of living a successful life. All these kids deserve a much better opportunity than what they have now and being a responsible citizen it is our responsibility to support this initiative. The little support you do in any form will have multiple positive effects on future of these kids, the small pledge each one of us takes may be in form of providing Scholarships to these kids will help “Boat School” touch life of many more kids of Varanasi and will help them in becoming an asset to our country. Step up and Help such noble cause.

Times Now - The Shit Nation Doesn't Want to Listen

Before starting to write the post, let me thank millions of Indian cricket fans who stood behind team India after the loss when some attention and TRP mongers started to defame and question the integrity and commitment of each one our players. Yes as expected it was the “So Called “ No. 1 English news Channel, the savior of humanity, The Truth digger, the Messiah of Common man, the Times Now which is run, directed and yes scripted by Arnab Goswami. Arnab, the Yug Purush, the great screamer with the enough decibel levels that his voice can be heard even on the moon.

It all started after India’s 95 runs loss in the World Cup Semi Final yesterday, within 5 mins of end of the match, TimesNow started their debate with Anand and Tina as hosts ( yes go and fuking find out who they are) with panelists Zaheer Khan, Atul Vasan, Charu Sharma and 2 others. The tone, the questions and the comments hosts were putting seemed like they owned team India. As usual they started promoting their twitter trend #ShamedInSydney expecting that hurt fans will come and abuse Team India,but it went totally opposite.  Fans started to question the way Timesnow was asking questions, they raised objections to host’s doubting the integrity and commitment of Dhoni and other players. Hosts even tried to drag CSK IPL match fixing issue and attaching that with Dhoni, questioning Anushka Sharma’s presence in Sydney.

Hosts started to compare Teary AB Devilieres with smiling Dhoni after the loss, calling him shameless, forgetting the fact that South Africans came so close to win the match and anyone will behave in same way when they lose that type of a close match. As per them, Dhoni and Company should apologize to fans, which by their ignorance Dhoni did in fact in the post-match talk but may be they wanted Dhoni to kneel down and ask for forgiveness for just losing a match. Kudos to Zaheer, Atul, and Charu who stood behind team India fighting point on point with loser Hosts and making some sense in anyway one directional debate. The Crickets fans didn’t like such comments and within 10-15 mins , instead of #ShamedInSydney, #ShameOnTimesNow started trending in India and World Wide. Fans started using curse words and facts questioning timesnow’s show. 

Facts like Dhoni has won almost all ODI championship any team can ,from World Cup to Asia Cup to Champions trophy and the T-20 World Cup, he is the highest match winning captain of India in ODIs. For ardent Indian cricket fans it was emotional to read such supportive tweets and messages even after such a loss. Yes we bunked office for it, yes we are really hurt, Yes team made some mistakes , but real fans are not going to get personal and abuse players and question their integrity. This is the same team that won 7/7 matches in this World Cup dominating the opposition, and it was just 1 bad day in office for them. Here are some of tweets and pics posted over social media that made #ShameonTimesNow phenomena within hours.
