Madurai, June 12, 2012 (Washington Bangla Radio / PIB India) Thirteen year old Sivakami is a pleasant, pony tailed girl whom I see every day. She is the culinary assistant and assistant waiter at the small mess where I have breakfast and meals on a regular basis. Besides being cheap, the food one gets in such messes that can be seen all over Tamilnadu is of excellent quality.

However, the quality and low expense comes up with a specific price tag. The mess depends mainly upon labour of Sivakami as well as her elder brother Sivanesan, who is studying for his Plus 2. the only silver lining is that both Sivanesan as well as Sivakami have been allowed to continue with their studies.

By Sarita Brara

New Delhi, June 11, 2012 (Washington Bangla Radio / PIB India) Could a small farmer belonging to scheduled caste in a backward village in West Bengal ever dream that one day his son would be able to go abroad for higher education? Thanks to the National Overseas Scholarship scheme, his son Shamik Pally is today doing PhD in human genetics from Leister University.

To ensure that economic and social status does not come in the way of fulfilling the dreams of the students who have the merit and ability, the Centre has initiated several scholarships, including the National Scholarship Scheme. Today many selected students are pursuing their ambitions doing Masters and PhDs at prestigious universities abroad. Ravindra Kumar and Sunil R Vaidya are among them.

By Booma Natarajan, M.Sc., M.A., B.Ed.
Principal, Jamuna Mishra Academy – JMA

JMA Pilani Rajasthan Celebrates Rabindra JayantiPilani, Rajasthan, May 9, 2012 (Washington Bangla Radio) In the words of Gurudev “The highest education is that which does not merely give us information but makes our life in harmony with all existence.” Well before the era of Internet, Google+, Twitter, Facebook etal, Tagore had talked about the globalized world linked by thoughts and cultures.

Established in the year, 2004 Smt Jamuna Mishra Academy – JMA which has been making rapid strides in early childhood education derives its inspiration from the quote “Information is just bits of data while knowledge is putting them together and wisdom is transcending them.” JMA which is one among the most sought after and top ranking schools in Pilani, has a rich tradition of celebrating various events of not only national importance like Republic Day, Independence Day, Mahatma Gandhi Jayanti, National Science Day, National Education Day, Children’s Day etc but also of international importance such as World Health Day, International Women’s Day, World water Day, World Sparrow day, World Sight Day, Grand Parents Day, Earth Day etc.

Nobel Laureate Tagore (07 May 1861 – 07 August 1941) is a Poet, Novelist, Musician, Painter, social reformer, Playwright and freedom fighter all rolled in one.

However, it has been a tradition to observe Rabindra Jayanti always on Pochishe Boishakh (Twenty fifth day in the Month of Baisakh) and for the year 2012 with Poila Baishak falling on 14 April, Pochishe is on 08 May 2012.
