Let's Learn the Sign Language (Weekdays)

As I mentioned earlier in the previous blog, learning manual alphabets is the most crucial part of learning American Sign Language. So, if you wish to go ahead, go back and learn how to sign the Alphabets. Today, we learn about the weekdays. But, before that, let’s learn how we sign a week. Pass the index finger of your dominant hand on the palm of the passive hand (as shown in the image below). To denote EVERY week, do it twice or thrice in a circular motion.

The image below shows the signing of the weekdays. The rules and positioning are the same as mentioned in the previous blog. the must face the person you are signing at.

Monday: Make an M with your hand (fist closed but thumb in between your pinky and ring finger). Make a little circular movement after signing an M.

Tuesday: Make a T with your hand (fist closed but thumb in between index and the middle finger). Make a little circular movement after signing T.

Wednesday: Make a W with your hand (raise the first three fingers) and make a little circular movement.

Thursday: Make a T (as mentioned above) and then an H (index and the middle finger pointing towards left.)

Friday: Make an F (hold your index finger nail with the thumb tip raising the rest of the fingers) and make a circular movement.

Saturday: Make an S (fist closed and thumb on the fingers). Make a singular movement.

Sunday: Move your hands in a circular motion denoting as if the sun is coming out.

Let's learn The Sign Language (Manual Alphabets)

As we all know, whenever we start learning a language, we start with the alphabets. But, it is more important to start with alphabets in American Sign Language because you end up finger spelling the words which haven’t been assigned the signs yet. Besides that, there are many things which are signed by the initials of those words and are distinguished by their movements. You need to be VERY careful in the positioning of your hands while signing as even a single movement can change the complete meaning of the word. Some of the movements when changed from the original ones can turn into offensive terms to the deaf community.

A bit about the positioning when you sign.
  • ·      Facial expressions are VERY important when you sign. If you show pleasure or happiness, SMILE. If you are showing pain or displeasure, it must show on your face. If you are asking a question, your face must ask the question too (lower your chin and raise your eye brows).
  • ·         One of your hands is the dominant one and the other is passive one. Right hand is the dominant one for the right handed people left is their passive hand, mostly. Left hand is the dominant one for the left handed and right is the passive hand, mostly. It is very important to determine which one is your dominant hand as you are supposed to use only the dominant hand in most of the cases in American Sign Language (British sign Language is done with both the hands).
  • ·         Your body frame is your only territory when you sign. Do NOT sign in the space beyond that even if you are showing the fight of an airplane. Also do not sign in front of your face as the facial expressions are an important part of the sign language.
  • ·         Raise your hand to a comfortable level so you don’t have to move it a lot. Do not rest it on any table or anything. For the alphabet signing, it’s only the hand that should move and sign and the arm must stay stationary.

The image above shows you an alphabet chart which is quite clear but let me explain the perfect positioning of all the alphabets separately for more help. Raise your hand to a perfect position and start signing.

A: Fist closed. Thumb NOT on the closed fingers.
B: Open the fist. Thumb in.
C: Make a C with your hand and it should face the other person (not sideways as the C signed sideward is the figure 100).
D: Raise the index figure like you are signing the number 1. Rest of the fingers closed.
E: Close the hand but the thumb must be positioned under the finger tips and not on top of them or on the side. (Quite like the claws)
F: Thumb on the nail of the index finger while the rest of the 3 fingers do not bend. The three fingers must be close to each other.
G: Point your index finger to the left while it faces inwards.
H: Point the index and the middle finger to the left like you did with G.
I: Raise your pinky finger.
J: Make a J with your pinky finger in the air.
K: There are two styles of doing it. One is to raise your index and middle finger and place your thumb in between the two. The other one is to raise your index finger while you touch the tips of middle finger and the thumb. The latter is more advisable.
L: Make an L shape with your thumb and the middle finger. Must be positioned outwards.
M: Close the fist but place the thumb between your ring finger and the pinky finger.
N: Close the fist but the place between the middle finger and the ring finger.
O: Make an O shape by touching your thumb tip to the tips of all your fingers.
P: Its just like K but you bend your wrist to the left when you do it. (both the methods of K)
Q: Make a U of your thumb and the index finger and turn it upside down.
R: Cross your index and Middle finger like you normally cross the fingers.
S: Close your fist with the thumb on top of your closed fingers.
T: Close the fist but place your thumb between you index finger and the middle finger.
U: Raise your index and Middle finger (keep them closer to each other). Thumb in.
V: Make a victory sign with the index and the middle finger. Thumb in.
W: Raise your index, middle and the ring finger. Thumb in.
X: Bend your index finger and shape it as a hook.
Y: Raise your thumb and pinky finger. Rest of the fingers must be closed.
Z: Make a Z with the index finger in the air.

These are the American Sign Language manual alphabets from A-Z. Tried to be as vivid with the positioning as I could. Just a final tip before I wind up, do NOT make your own signs. Always go with the already designated signs. This is the only language the deaf community has, do not steal it for them for your own pleasure.

How Intention Matters

Blasphemy is one of the hottest and the saddest issues going around in the country and it has been one of the most misunderstood topics in the current scenario. Legally, blasphemy is not just limited to Islam or Muslims. Section 295* of Pakistan Penal Code covers all the religions and anyone who hurts the religious sentiments of any other person shall be liable to punishment. So, no! It just doesn't protect Muslims but it protects other religions too. Although, the subsequent sections stipulate some more actions and punishments which protect the religious sentiments of Muslims only. The law is definitely a bit vague when it comes to Pakistani society as we don’t  take much time in getting hurt, religiously. A little work in the interpretation of the law would be of great help but that can only be useful if the cases are actually taken to the courts and not settled, out of court, by the angry mobs. A bill against the abusers of blasphemy law might be of some help.

Other than that, we should always keep in mind what can amount to the criminal charges. When a crime takes place, mens rea and actus reus, of the offender are kept under investigation. Mens rea happens to be the intention of the offender and actus reus is the action that amounts to the crime. A crime without intention of doing it holds no criminal value, in most cases, and a mere thought without giving it a practical implementation holds no worth either. Erroneous and the murder in self defense can never be punished with Qisas (equal punishment), under any law. In fact, the 2nd grievous kind of murder i.e. Qatl e Shibh i Amd (when the offender intends to hurt the victim but in causing the hurt he ends up killing the victim) is not punished with Qisas, either. This clearly shows how the intention to commit the crime, of the offender, plays a vital role in amounting to what liability it holds.

Depriving a human from his right to live happens to be the worst of crimes, all over the world and in all the religions and such a crime is excused till the offender actually intends to perform the act. That is about the rights of human beings. Let’s just look into the rights of Allah and how intentions can matter. A person who intentionally misses his prayers will be differently liable for this act when compared to the person who does it unintentionally. Same goes for every religious duty. Actions are always judged by the intentions they carry.

The simple point to conclude, for an action to hold blasphemy charges or before accusing anyone for committing blasphemy, always consider either he really intended to cause a harm to the religion or did he really wish to hurt your religious sentiments or not. A sentence spoken in haste or a mere slip of tongue can never amount to blasphemy. Blasphemy is no joke. It is a serious issue. Stop propagating your religious or political ideologies basing them on blasphemy. 

*Section 295: Injuring or defiling place or worship, with intent to insult the religion of any class. Whoever, destroys, damages or defiles any place of worship, or any object held sacred by any class of persons with the intention of thereby insulting the religion of any class of persons or with the knowledge that any class of persons is likely to consider such destruction, damage or defile­ment as an insult to their religion, shall be punished with imprisonment of either description for a term which may extent to two years, or with fine or with both.

DEWA Foundation

Balochistan, the land full of natural resources and minerals has always been ignored by the government authorities and the people in other parts of Pakistan. Health and education facilities in the rural areas of  the province have been bad since forever and the blame game, on whose fault it has been, never gets over. The inhabitants are deprived of the basic needs. Sadly, good health and education facilities seem like a luxury to that part of the country. 

There comes a time when the firm belief in yourself and the efforts make you forget all your grievances and you start stepping forward towards prosperity. This is what the founders of DEWA Foundation are currently doing. DEWA Foundation is the brainchild of a group of students who wish to forget all the negative behaviours and move on to help themselves.

DEWA Foundation is, basically, focusing on the education and the health sector in the rural areas of Balochistan. There, no doubt, is immense talent and resources but no proper facilities or guidelines to channel the resources and talent in a more useful manner. The young minds behind DEWA foundation vow on making the rural areas of the province what they deserve to be. What are they doing to achieve what the wish for? Collecting the donations and using their personal funds to get to what they have planned for.

The founder of DEWA foundation, along with his team, has deleted the misconception about the nonprofit organizations and moved from table talk to reality. DEWA Foundation initiated its first school in March, in Karezat, village Murgha Zakaryazai and they have started working on the next one already. The quality of education they are giving to their students, with the limited resources they have, is no less than any organisation in the urban areas of the country.

The biggest challenge for any non-profit organization has to be the shortage of funds. The young enthusiasts of DEWA foundation are working hard on collecting the donations so the cause never stops. As the children in the DEWA foundation schools are studying free of cost, the money donated can never be enough. So, here is an appeal to all the people out there to donate as much as you can so this noble cause doesn't end here. 

This is how and where you can send your donations.

مینڈک کہانی - انجام

کنویں کا مینڈک کنویں سے آنکھوں میں بہت سے خواب لے کر نکلا تھا۔ ایسا خواب جو کنویں میں رہنے والے کسی بھی مینڈک نے پہلے نہیں دیکھے تھے۔ اسے وہ سارے خواب پورے کرنا پہلے بہت آسان سا لگتا۔ لیکن جیسے ہی وہ کنویں سے نکلا اسے بہت سی مشکلات کا سامنا کرنا پڑا۔ کنویں سے باہر کی دنیا ایک ایسی مسلسل دوڑ تھی جس میں ہر کسی کا چاہتے نہ چاہتے ہوئے بھی حصہ لینا ضروری تھا۔

باہر کی دنیا ایک ایسی مستقل دوڑ تھی جس میں بیٹھ کر سستا لینے کا کوئی تصور بھی نہیں کر سکتا تھا۔ تھک ہار کر یا سستی کی وجہ سے بیٹھ جانے والے دوڑ میں مسلسل بھاگتے رہنے والوں کے پیروں تلے کچلے جاتے تھے۔ مینڈک کچلا جانا نہیں چاہتا تھا، اسی لئے نہ چاہتے ہوئے بھی اس کو اس دور کا حصہ بننا پڑا۔ اس دوڑ میں کبھی وہ سب کو پیچھے چھوڑ دیتا اور کبھی اکیلا پیچھے رہ جاتا۔ کبھی کبھی اس دوڑ میں بھاگتے بھاگتے وہ اتنا مصروف ہو جاتا کہ اس کو احساس ہی نہ رہتا کہ وہ کیا کیا پیچھے چھوڑ رہا ہے۔

اس کی اگلی نسلیں بھی پیدا ہوتے ہی اسی دوڑ میں اس کے ساتھ شامل ہوتی چلی گئیں۔ اسے کسی ایسے لمحے کی تلاش تھی جس میں وہ رک سکے اور اگر رک نہ سکے تو کم از کم اپنا سانس بحال کر سکے۔ اسی لمحے کی تلاش میں زندگی گزرتی چلی گئی۔ دانستہ یا غیر دانستہ وہ اپنی اگلی نسلوں کو اس دوڑ میں جیتنے کے لئے مجبور کرتا چلا گیا۔ اسی دوڑ اور اس کو جیتنے کی جستجو میں اس کی زندگی گزر گئی۔

اب کنویں کا مینڈک بوڑھا ہو چکا ہے اور اب اسے وہ کنواں بہت یاد آتا ہے جسے وہ بہت پہلے چھوڑ آیا تھا۔ اس کا بہت دل چاہتا ہے کہ وہ کنویں کی طرف واپس لوٹ جائے۔ کبھی کبھی وہ جاتا بھی ہے پر اسے کنویں میں وہ آسائشیں نہیں ملتیں جن کا وہ عادی ہو چکا ہے۔ اس کا بہت دل چاہتا ہے کہ وہ کنویں کے مینڈکوں کے ساتھ بیٹھے، ان سے بات کرے پر اسے یہ احساس بہت شدت سے ہوتا ہے کہ کنویں میں مینڈک بہت پیچھے رہ گئے ہیں۔ وہ دیکھ سکتا ہے کہ کنویں کے مینڈک پیچھے رہ گئے ہیں پر وہ کچلے نہیں گئے۔ ان کنویں کے مینڈکوں نے اس دوڑ میں حصہ نہیں لیا جس میں اس نے اپنی زندگی گزار دی تھی اور وہ مطمئن ہیں۔ اب اسی کنویں کے مینڈک جس میں وہ پلا بڑھا تھا اسکی عزت بہت کرتے ہیں پر کچھ کچھ اجنبیوں والا سلوک کرتے ہیں۔

کنویں کا مینڈک چاہتا ہے کہ اسکی اگلی نسلیں اسی کنویں میں پلیں بڑھیں جس میں وہ پلا بڑھا تھا اور ویسے ہی پلیں بڑھیں جیسے وہ پلا بڑھا تھا، پر وہ جانتا ہے کہ اسکا یہ خواب پورا نہیں ہو سکتا۔ کنویں کا مینڈک اپنے آپ کو اسی شش و پنج مین پھر سے پا رہا ہے جس میں وہ بہت سال پہلے تھا جب اس نے کنویں کو چھوڑنے اور باہر نکلنے کا فیصلہ کرنا تھا۔

مینڈک کو اب کچھ کچھ احساس سا ہونے لگ گیا ہے کہ وہ اپنی اصل چھوڑ چکا ہے۔ وہی اصل جس کو کنویں کے مینڈک چھوڑنے سے ڈرتے تھے۔ مگر اب بہت دیر ہو چکی ہے۔ اب کنویں کے مینڈک کے پاس اس ایک غیر مطمئن زندگی گزارنے کے سوا کچھ نہیں ہے۔ کنویں کا مینڈک کنویں کو چھوڑ تو گیا ہے مگر پھر بھی مطمئن نہ ہو سکا۔

Kunwein ka maindak kunwey se ankho me bohhat se khwab ley kr nikla tha. Aise khwab jo kunwein me rehney waley kisi bhi maindak ne pehley nahi dekhey they. Usey wo saarey khwab purey krna pehley bohhat asaan sa lagta tha. Laikin jese he wo kunwein se nikla usey bohhat si mushkilaat ka saamna krna para. Kunwein se bahar ki dunya aik aisi musalsal dorr thi jis me har kisi ka chahtey na chahtey huey bhi hissa lena zaroori tha.
Bahar ki dunya aik aisi mustaqil dor thi jis me beth kr sasta lene ka koi tasawwur bhi nahi kr skta tha. Thak haar kr ya susti k baais beth janey waley dor me musalsal bhagtey rehney walo k pairo taley kuchley jatey they. Maindak kuchla jana nahi chahta tha isliye na chahtey huey bhi usko is dor ka hissa banna para. Is dor me kabhi wo sab ko peechey chor deta aur kabhi akaila peechey reh jata. Kabhi kabhi is dor me bhagtey bhagtey wo itna masroof ho jata k usko ahsaas he na rehta k wo kya kya peechey chor rha hai.
Uski agli naslein bhi paida hotey he isi dor me usk sath shamil hoti chali gaeen. Usey kisi aise lamhey ki talaash thi jisme wo rukk sakey aur agar rukk na sakey to kum az kum apna saans bahaal kr skey. Isi lamhey ki talaash me zindagi guzarti chali gai.  Daanista ya na daanista wo apni agli naslo ko us dor me jeetney k liye majboor krta chala gaya. Isi dor aur usko jeetney ki justujoo me uski zindagi guzar gai.
Ab kunwein ka maindak burha ho chukka hai aur ab usey wo kunwa bohhat yaad aata hai jisey wo bohhat pehley chor aaya tha. Uska bohhat dil chahta hai k wo kunwein ki taraf wapis laut jaye. Kabhi kabhi wo jaata bhi hai par usey kunwein me wo asaaishein nahi milti jinka wo aadi ho chukka hai. Uska bohhat dil chahta hai k wo kunwein k maindako k sath bethey, unse baat krey pr usey yeh ahsaas bohhat shiddat se hota hai k kunwein k maindak bohhat peechey reh gaye hein. Wo dekh skta hai k kunwein k maindak peechey reh gaye hein pr wo kuchley nahi gaye. Un kunwein k maindko ne us dor me hissa nahi liya jisme usne apni zindagi guzari thi aur wo mutmainn hein. Ab usi kunwein k maindak jisme wo pala barha tha uski izzat bohhat krtey hein pr kuch kuch ajnabiyo wala salook krtey hein.
Kunwein ka maindak chahta hai k uski agli naslein usi kunwein me palein barheyn jis me wo pala barha tha aur wese he palein barhein jese wo pala barha tha pr wo jaanta hai k uska yeh khwab poora nahi ho skta. Kunwein ka maindak apney aap ko usi shash o punj me phir paa rha hai jisme wo bohhat saal pehey tha jab usne kunwein ko chorney aur bahar niklney ka faisla krna tha. Maindak ko ab kuch kuch ahsaas sa honey lag gaya hai k wo apni asal chor chukka hai. Wohi asal jisko kunwein k maindak chorney se dartey they. Magar ab bohhat deir ho chuki hai. Ab kunwein k maindak k paas aik ghair mutmainn zindagi guzarney k siwa kuch nahi hai. Kunwein ka maindak kunwein ko chor to gaya hai magar phir bhi mutmainn na ho saka.

II مینڈک کہانی

کنویں کا مینڈک کنویں میں رہ کر کبھی بھی مطمئن  نہیں رہا۔ باہر کی دنیا کی خبر نا ہونے کے باوجود اسکوہمیشہ ایک کمی سی محسوس ہوتی تھی۔ وہ کچھ کرنا چاہتا تھا۔ اس نیلے آسمان کو کچھ قریب سے دیکھنا چاہتا تھا۔ اسکی ایسی باتیں باقی مینڈکوں کو ہمیشہ مزاق ہی لگتی تھی پر اسے یقین تھا کہ وہ کچھ کر سکتی ہے۔ اس کے دیل میں ہمیشہ یہ خیال آتا تھا کہ اس کنویں سے آگے بھی کچھ ہے۔ کچھ بڑا اور کچھ بہتر۔ باقی مینڈک یہ بات کبھی نہیں سمجھ پاتے تھے۔

اسی طرح یہ مینڈک کسی دن اکیلا بیٹھا اپنے کنویں کو بہتر بنانے کی تراکیب سوچھ رہا تھا کہ اچانک باہر سے ایک مینڈک کنویں میں آ گرا۔ پوچھنے پر پتا چلا کہ وہ مینڈک باہر کی دنیا سے آیا ہے۔ سب نے پہلے تو ماننے سے انکار کر دیا کہ کنویں سے باہر بھی کوئی دنیا ہے۔ ان کے مطابق کنواں ہی انکی دنیا تھی۔ اس سے بڑا اور بہتر کچھ نہین ہو سکتا۔ باقی سب نے ماننے سے صاف انکار کر دیا پر اس مینڈک کو باہر کی دنیا کا سن کر بہت خوشی ہوئی۔ اسے خود پر یقین ہو گیا۔ اسے اپنا آپ یک دم باقی مینڈکوں سے بہتر لگنے لگا۔

باہر سے آئے ہوئے مینڈک سے سب مینڈک بہت دن دنیا کے بارے مین طرح طرح کے سوال کرتے رہے تاکہ اس دنیا کو بہتر طریقے سے جان سکیں۔ باقی مینڈکوں کو پھر بھی یقین نہ آیا کہ اتنی روشن اور بڑی جگہ بھی کوئی ہو سکتی ہے مگر اس مینڈک کو عجیب سی فتح کا احساس ہونے لگا۔ اسکو باہر کی دنیا کچھ کچھ ابھی تصوراتی دنیا کے قریب قریب لگنے لگی۔ اسے بہت خوشی ہوئی کہ اسکے خواب حقیقت سے بہت قریب ہیں۔ اسے اپنی قابلیت پر اور یقین ہو گیا۔ اسنے جیسے خود کو پہچان لیا ہو۔

باہر کی دنیا کا مینڈک تو کنواں چھوڑ کر چلا گیا پر اس کنویں کے مینڈک کو وہ پہلے سے کہیں زیادہ بے چین کر گیا۔ اب اسنے خواب دیکھنے سے زیادا یہ سوچھنا شروع کردیا کہ وہ کیوں اس باہر کی دنیا کا حصہ نہیں ہے۔ وہ کیوں اس کنویں میں رہتا ہے؟ اسمیں ایسی کیا کمی ہے جو وہ باہر سے آنے والا مینڈک کس طرح اس سے بہتر تھا۔ اسکا زندگی مزید بےچین ہو گئی اور اسی طرح کنویں کے ینڈک نے اس دینا کو قریب سے جانچنے کا فیصلہ کر لیا جو اسکی تصوراتی دنیا سے بہت حد تک قریب تھی

Kunwein ka maindak kunwein me reh kar kabhi bhi mutmainn nahi raha. Bahar ki dunya ki khabar na honey k bawajood usko humesha aik kumi si mehsoos hoti thi. Wo kuch karna chahta tha. Us neeley aasmaan ko kuch qareeb se dekhna chahta tha. Uski aisi baatein baaqi maindako ko humesha mazaq he lagti thi par usey yaqeen tha k wo kuch kar sakta hai. Us k dil mein humesha yeh khayal aata tha k is kunwein se aagey bhi kuch hai. Kuch bara aur kuch behtar. Baaqi maindak yeh baat kabhi nahi samjh paatey they. 
Isi tarah yeh maindak kisi din akaila baitha apney kunwein ko behtar banaaney ki tarqeebein soch raha tha k achanak bahar se aik maindak kunwein me aa gira. Poochney par pata chala k wo maindak bahar ki dunya se aaya hai. Sab ne pehley to maanney se inkaar kr diya k kunwein k bahar ki bhi koi dunya hai. Un k mutaabiq kunwa he unki dunya thi. Us se bara aur behtar kuch nahi ho skta. Baaqi sab ne maanney se saaf inkaar kr diya par is maindak ko bahar ki dunya ka sunn kr bohhat khushi hui. Usey khud par yaqeen ho gaya. Usey apna aap yukdum baaqi maindako se behtar lagney laga. 
Bahar se aaye huey maindak se sab maindak bohhhat din dunya k barey me tarah tarah k sawal krtey rhey taakey us dunya ko behtar tareeqey se jaan skein. Baaqi maindako ko phir bhi yaqeen na aaya k itni roshan aur bari jagah bhi koi ho skti hai magar is maindak ko ajeeb si fatah ka ahsas honey laga. Usko bahar ki dunya kuch kuch apni tasawuraati dunya k qareeb qareeb lagney lagi. Usey bohhat khushi hui k usk khwab haqeeqat se bohhat qareeb hein. Usey apni qaabliyyat pr aur yaqeen hogya. Usney jese khud ko pehchaan liya ho.
Bahar ki dunya ka maindak to kunwa chor kr chala gaya pr is kunwein k maindak ko wo pehley se kahi zyada beychain kr gaya. Ab usne khwab dekhney se zyada yeh sochna shuru kr diya k wo kyu us bahar ki dunya ka hissa nahi hai. Wo kyu us kunwein me rehta hai? Usme aisi kiya kami hai jo wo bahar ki roshan aur purr ronak dunya ka hissa nahi bun skta aur wo bahar se aaney wala maindak kis tarah us se behtar tha. Uski zindagi mazeed beychain ho gai aur isi tarah kunwein k maindak ne us dunya ko qareeb se jaanchney ka faisla kr liya jo uski tasawuraati dunya se bohhat hudd tak qareeb thi…

Getting the right sort of education is a basic right, but unfortunately, many of us living in the same country are deprived of this fundamental right. Seeing a child playing in the street or working at a workshop or some house, at the school timings, because his/her parents cannot bear the school expenses sure is a heart breaking scene. We get to see many kids around who are very much willing to study but they cannot pay the regular fee of their educational institute. The children of our housemaids, drivers, cooks, etc. either work with them to share the burden of the expenses or they simply stay back home doing nothing. 
Many of us write the blogs and articles about the issues but not many steps forward to help them. We do realize that education is important and every kid must get educated, but when it comes to helping those children in a real sense, we don’t do much. We, a little group of friend, have thought about a plan to finance these children who cannot afford to go to school. Our initial plan is to finance the kids from primary (KG-Matric) to graduate level (BA/BSC). The fee estimate according to our estimate does not exceed from Rs. 500 to Rs. 1500 per month. This amount is not much for many of us and we definitely can manage to give away around Rs. 1500 from our monthly budget. 
This project is strictly for the education of the deserving children. We will make sure that the money goes in the right hand and is spent at the right place. For that, we will ask the parents to give us a regular academic report and that will be given to the donors. We will try our best to make sure that the kids study and the money is spent on their education only. 
This is just a baby project which we started a few days back and we are sponsoring about fifteen children already. This is all because of our worthy donors’ help. But, ten is not that big a number, we need more children who need to be educated. For that, we need your help. Let us know of any child around you, for e.g. your servants’ kids or anybody, who you think is the deserving one and we will try our best to pay his school fees. 
Plus, we need more donations for the project. As I mentioned up there, we need about Rs. 500-1500/month to educate one kid. If you decide to start sponsoring a child, you have to be very much regular in giving us the money so that the education of the child doesn’t get discontinued once we put him to school. The session starts in March so we have to make sure that the donations get collected before that and the deserving children go to school at the right time. 
Donate as much as you can so that more and more children get educated. These children are the future of the country. Educating these children means securing our future. We can always save some money by skipping a meal at some luxurious restaurant and spend that money in educating at least one child who cannot afford it. Help in any way you can. Bring us the deserving kids; help us monetarily or just spread the word around. Help us in any way you can. ‘Education for all’ is our slogan and that’s what we mean by this. You don’t have to be of a particular class to get the right sort of education; anybody and everybody deserves to get educated.
