The Vision of a Real Youth Movement

What we need today is thinking on a macro scale... of the national problem. NGO's can do something indeed on a micro scale... yet the problem is national and the solution must be national too. The intelligent and the principled has this task ahead: placing their own centres of gravity at the centre of gravity of the nation. The nation, the Motherland - the millions of deprived people of this land - this must be the main concern. Character has be moulded that way. That is the vision of a real youth movement.

Informal Meet at the ISI

We had a nice informal discussion at the Indian Statistical Institute, Kolkata, with its research scholars on 16 March. The meeting started a few minutes after 6.30 pm and continued for nearly 2 hours. The subject was a serious one: the condition of children in our country and the work before us. Almost all of the 22 or 23 students took active part in the discussion. They also inquired about the Mahamandal. Some of these scholars are planning to visit a few centres of the Mahamandal, where some work is going on among the most deprived sections of society. The organizer was the ever-smiling Raju Maiti, himself a Ph.D. student in Applied Statistics.

The Annual Camp of the Sarada Nari Sangathan

Sarada Nari Sangathan, the sister organization of the Mahamandal, is working silently among women for their life-building since 1989 with the ideal of Sri Sarada Devi. Now there are 50 units, which organize weekly study circles and some social service activities. Many of the units arrange daylong women’s training camps to propagate the ideas of the Sangathan.
The 21st Annual All India Women’s Training Camp of the Sangathan was held from 28 to 31 October 2010 at Bhogpur K.M. High School, Bhogpur, Dist. Purba Medinipur, West Bengal. The aim of the camp was to inspire women in life-building, following the ideal of Sri Ramakrishna, Sri Sarada Devi, and Swami Vivekananda, and to organize them for this work. From all walks of life 408 women joined the camp as trainees, and 127 more participated in the programmes on Sunday. Revered Pravrajika Shuchiprana Mataji of Sarada Math, Dakshineshwar, inaugurated the camp on 28 October and addressed the campers and guests.
The main training programme included classes and question-answer sessions on character-building, mental concentration, and the aims and objectives of the Sangathan as well as physical training and music classes. An exhibition was set up on the life of Sri Sarada Devi. A bookstall with the Mahamandal and Udbodhan publications was opened.
