Me and my wife were looking at some pictures taken by our friends in hyderabad, India. The pictures were of a school in Anikepalli , a village near hyderabad. My wife immediately said ” Not bad, this school has a roof”.
A school in a village is assumed to be with no roof , no proper toilet facilities , no desks or benches or sometimes even without a teacher. I asked my self , is it really that bad ?
The constitution has made free and compulsory education for every child between a certain age group. It took 60 years for free India to realize the importance of basic education, wonder how many more years it will take to really implement this.
Is it really worth the wait, definetly not.

I can do something and this something lead me to join a group of individuals trying to make a difference in the society and we , infact , made a difference atleast to few people in the society and thats a start.
I am happy that i am also doing something more than simply blogging 🙂
