Manojji’s visit

One question that is worth asking oneself is that how can I serve others more? An extension of this query was Manoj ji’s visit to the villages from Jawalgaon to Katarkhadak village school.  The tour was totally focused on the ongoing projects of RSVK and what more can be done to make life more comfortable for the rural folk. The ways to inspire and include more and more people was also reflected upon.

The visit was a learning experience for us as well. The villagers who were in deep gratitude for the projects and resources offered taught us the value of gratitude.

When beautiful people meet beautiful things happen. A discussion of Manojji with the school authorities and important people of the villages, interested in village growth, turned out to be extremely fruitful. Magic of Gratitude workshop is already being offered to them. Some tips for enhancing playful learning were also shared.

Students had a great time being with Manojji and they got easily connected to him owing to his childlike playful nature.  Singing prayers, rhymes with drama and action and a Marathi prayer helped build an amazing rapport with the children.

Freedom club

The Child’s mind is the most fertile resource. Hence planting moral values is of immense importance. We, at RSVK, believe in developing individuals with strength of character by catching them young. Children’s SSY, Advanced SSY, Fun Club, ISP are some of the tools that help us in our journey. And what we get out of these playful and interactive sessions is a band of future citizens who set a bench mark of a developed head, heart and mind.

The Retreat, after SSY is a treat for the mind, body and soul. The villagers experienced the highest form of bliss through meticulously designed processes. A paradoxical experience that brings freedom through bonding, bestows a sense of moodiness in everybodiess and gives a reason to be happy without a reason. The participants returned after unwrapping the gift of life, taking it on with a cheerful grin.

Villagers stayed at the Katarkhadak ashram for the Retreat and experienced silence that seeing godliness in everything around brings.

Clean Katarkhadak

When beautiful people come together, beautiful things happen.’ One such experience was the coming together of the city children, the Gurukulam family and the villagers. The collective energy was thus directed towards creating, maintaining and recreating clean environs. On the festive occasion of Holi, before the Holi fire is lit, everyone got together to make the surroundings plastic- free. We envisioned a clean Katakhadak village and worked towards manifesting it.

Books distribution

Books are uniquely portable magic.’ And we decided to create this magic for our village children, youth and women by distributing books. In collaboration with CAN, an NGO that connected with us on this project, we gifted books to students and women whom we interact with on a daily basis under our character building and leadership and women empowerment programs respectively.
