I have heard an anecdote of a boy who happened to cogitate at the people who are restless and unhappy. One day he asked his grandmother about it. She replied “It is not possible for life to make a selfish person happy, whatever temporary satisfactions may come along. But...” She added, “Life can give you joy if you live for the joy of others,” The teachers who comprehend this may become more selfless which help them to be affectionate and working beyond the comfortable frontier. The unselfish teacher becomes a model to the students and his/her footsteps are followed by many.
There are many activities which happened during the month of September & October that reflect such unselfish endeavors of teachers, parents, well-wishers etc.
One such example is the inception of VKV Dollungmukh. The untiring works of a few namely Er.RatanTebin, Er.KinaTamik, Shri.MagaTasso, VKV Alumnus have taken lead to materialize the dream of the local populace of Dollungmukh to set up a VKV there.

It was conducted to deal with the status of Indian women and the manifold dimensions of women’s role in fostering various aspects of family and social values. It aimed at enlightening women to liberate them from the preponderance of social stigmas, which women are victim to and as a result stymied their progress.The programme was conducted as a part of the yearlong celebration of Mananeeya Eknathji Ranade Janma Shati Parva(MEJSP).Vimarsh-II was attended by 135 mothers . The participants were greatly benefitted by the edifying speech of Su. Radha didi , who expatiated on the numerous facets of “Indian Women, Family and Society,” citing wide range of empirical and didactic allusions. The cruces of the value points of Radha didi’s speech are highlighted below:
Women are the embodiment and epitome of tolerance and virtuosity. They need to be emancipated, relaxing the imposition on their mobility by elevating their status through education.
Mother is not a worker. She is an expression of magnanimity in the form of Tyaga and Seva.
Woman is like water. She takes the shapes as per the situation and bears the responsibility of unification and reconciliation in all matters of the family.
Atma is one and it has got no differences.
Women need to be buoyed up to stand on their own feet to unfetter them from all social restraints. Education is the only instrument which can bring about better exposure of women’s outlook to life.
Adi Sankaracharya’s argument on Advaida , he took the judge as the wife of the opponent. Women have such knowledge and quality.
female can make the family one. Our ancient traditional values need to be inherited and carried on to strengthen the bondage of family and to avert any unfavourable elements which threaten this bondage.
Our culture is unique. A small family contributes to the whole world. A mother sees with a vision and thus the family unit becomes successful.
There was a lively interactive session after the address of Radha didi in which the participants put forward some pragmatic problems which they encounter in their daily life. The queries and doubts were clarified by didi. In the epilogue, mothers placed a request to incorporate both fathers and mothers in such programmes to make it more effective.
