govt primary schools in coastal villages of Navsari

“Though the school enrollment drive concluded in three days, the much larger movement, that is, to awake the society for developing a tilt towards education has not ended.”
 ~ Chief Minister

On the concluding day of the state’s 3-day colossal campaign of Kanya Kelavani and Sahala Pravesh Mahotsav (Girl child education and School enrollment drive) Chief Minister Narendra Modi once again underscored the need for social awakening for bringing about grassroots changes in the educational scenario, particularly in rural areas.

“We can not afford indifference towards education. Our society must animate and take up the responsibility for building future of the children of Gujarat through education”, said Mr. Modi at the primary schools of Aat and Tavadi villages located at the coastal regions of Navsari district where he went to attend enrollment process of little children in primary schools and anganwadis. Chief Minister distributed school-kits, toys, fruits and sweets to the children.

Chief Minister said, “Though the school enrollment drive concluded in three days, the much larger movement, that is, to awake the society for developing a tilt towards education has not ended.” The state government’s effort through this campaign is to make society focus on primary education during next decade, he said.

Mr. Modi said that from last ten years in a row the state government is successfully carrying out school enrollment drive on a huge scale. The world tend to notice the success of Vibrant Gujarat Summit, but the efforts like Kanya Kelavani and Shala Pravesh Mahotsav, which has potential for bringing about far-reaching positive results, are hardly noticed.

Chief Minister also spoke of the state government’s initiatives such as giving free-of-cost medical treatment to the school children and the steps for freeing people from malnutrition. He praised the role of rural women for the growing awareness in the society for girl child education.

He announced that the state government will also organize Gunotsav programme every year with a view to bring about qualitative changes in primary education.

Newly-enrolled children, their families, government officials and the village people were present on the occasion.

Similarly, the Kanya Kelavani and Sahala Pravesh Mahotsav will be organized in urban areas during June 28-30.

Pranaam Amma

Respected Dignitaries on the Dais

Namaskaram!

On this pious and sacred occasion, I offer my deep regards to Amma. I also pray to the Almighty to give long life and good health to her. She is the guiding light for millions of devotees. Not only that, she has become the synonym of life for many devotees. Like a real Maa, she nurtures her devotees through direct and indirect acts; visible and invisible hands.

I am very fortunate to be among those who have been receiving Amma’s blessings and unconditional love. Three years ago, I had the opportunity to be present at Amritapuri, to pay my respects on the occasion of Amma’s 60th birthday celebrations. Today, though I am not so lucky as to be present at the celebrations in person, I am delighted to be able to greet her, through technology. I have just returned from Kerala, and I was touched by the love and affection showered on me by the people of Kerala.

India is the land of such saints who have seen God in everything that can be seen. Mankind is prominent among those things. That is why service to mankind has become their main motto. I am aware that even in her childhood Amma was fond of giving her own food to others. Serving the old and the aged, and helping the needy have been her childhood passions.

Also, she used to worship Lord Krishna in her childhood.

These two qualities have been her strength. Devotion to God and Dedication to the Poor is thus, the message which I have personally taken from my association with Amma. Millions of devotees from all over the world also believe in the same.

I am aware of the social and charitable works done by various institutions and programmes run by Amma. She is always keen to help the world’s poor in meeting their five basic needs: food, shelter, health care, education, and livelihood.

I would like to particularly mention the works done and donations made in the field of sanitation, water, housing, education and health. I understand that some of those beneficiaries will get their certificates today. Particularly, Amma’s initiative on building toilets has been a great help in our Swachh Bharat Programme. Amma has pledged to contribute one hundred crore rupees towards sanitation efforts in Kerala. This pledge includes the construction of fifteen thousand toilets for the poor. Today, I am informed that throughout the State, Amma’s ashram has already completed construction of two thousand toilets.

I know that this is just one example of various works being done in the fields of environmental conservation and sustainability. One year ago, Amma generously donated one hundred crore rupees to the Namami Gange programme. I am also aware of Amma’s helping hands to mitigate the sufferings in the aftermath of natural disasters. It is also heartening to note that the Researchers at Amrita University are innovating new approaches to solve some of the world’s most pressing problems.

At the end, I would like to convey my sincere thanks for giving me the opportunity of joining the celebrations.

Once again I express my deep regards to Amma.
