Last night Madhav Reddy spoke to me but I could not take his call. The call was regarding a presentation at the secretary finance office at the federal govt service regarding the Vandemataram foundation. As i have earlier mentioned in my blogs regarding Vandemataram foundation, and madhav reddy (I call him madhavanna meaning madhav brother) they are doing a wonderful job on the Govt schools where only underprviliged children go to study and since they donot know they do not care of tehquality of education. LEaving alone quality there they infact want the kids to go to work along with them.
MAdhavanna and our group of volunteers together have done a commendable job last two years. There have been a total of 60,000 children taht went to schools just coz all of us contributed to the slates costing jsut a mere Rs. 15/-. Now they are for sure to continue until their secondary school, provided we function with the same spirit. THe right to education is being achieved not with sacrifices or no big campaigns but just a mere Rs. 15/- contribution thats why they say every drop counts.
In the morning I called up Madhavanna and he was just about to take off to hyderabad and he was happy with the outcome of interaction with the secretary. He infact offered to resign and work for Vandemataram foundation. Doesnt it show there are people good everywhere ? Onlything is we are not approaching them.
