A Protest Demonstration

The scholarship amount for the year 2009-10 under the post matric scholarship scheme of the Central Government have not been transferred to the accounts of the students or that of the colleges. Ideally, the amount should have been transferred latest by April 2010. But, ironically, the amount has not been transferred even as the new academic session is about to begin.

The Mumbai Division of the Students Islamic Organisation of India along with other Minority NGOs [mainly of Budh, Sikh, Jain and Christians] has organized a protest demonstration in front of the office of the Director of Technical Education and Higher Education near Xavier’s College on June 19 at 3 pm to protest against the lethargic and step-motherly approach of the State Government. The organization has appealed to all the students to be present for the protest in large numbers to press the demands.

The Ministry of Minority Affairs of the Government of India had sanctioned 64,400 post-metric scholarships for the state of Maharashtra for the academic year 2009-10. The state government selected 24,064 students for the above said scholarships. It should be remembered that the State Government took least efforts to popularize the scholarship at the time when it was declared. Hence, the number of applications received by the government was just around 25,000. That too the government is dealing with a lazy attitude.

Your Pearls of Wisdom

Success breeds success

There was a farmer who grew superior quality, award-winning corn in his farm. Each year, he entered his corn in the state fair where it won honors & prizes.

One year a newspaper reporter interviewed him and learned something interesting about how he grew his corn. The reporter discovered that the farmer shared his seed corn with his neighbors.

"How can you afford to share your best seed corn with your neighbors when they are entering corn in competition with
yours each year?" The reporter asked. "Why brother"

'' The farmer replied, "Didn't you know? The wind picks up pollen grains from the ripening corn and swirls it from field to field.

If my neighbors grow inferior, sub-standard & poor quality corn, cross-pollination will steadily degrade the quality of my corn. If I have to grow good corn, I must help my neighbors to grow good corns."

The farmer gave a superb insight into the connectedness of life. His corn cannot improve unless his neighbors' corn also improves. So it is in the other dimensions and areas of life!
Those who choose to be in harmony must help their neighbors and colleagues to be at peace.

Those who choose to live well must help others live well. The value of a life is measured by the lives it touches...

Success does not happen in isolation; it is most often a participatory and collective process. So share the good practices, ideas and new knowledge with your family, friends, team members and neighbors & all.
