Medical Camps by Sewa Kunj Ashram during Covid Period
Sewa Samaprpan Sansthan has planned to organize medical camps in all villages of Sonebhadra district through Sewa Kunj Ashram, Chapki as its nodal centre. Details you may see here:
At the time medical camps on daily basis are organized at different villages. Bhabhani, Kachnarawa and Nagvan blocks are being covered these days. Bhabhani is being coordinated by doctors from local hospitals. Ashram Chikitsa Pramuk Dr. Suman Lal is heading Kachanarvan block and Nagvan block is being taken care by doctors from Varanasi.
Villagers are avoiding any medical camps etc organized by government with the fear of getting vaccinated. They are also not taking Corona disease seriously. At one hand they are unable to reach Robertsganj Covid Centre and on the other hand they have apprehensions towards Covid and vaccination. But as they are recognizing Ashram team, they come and take medicines. Meanwhile, the team make them aware about the disease and removes apprehensions towards vaccination.
As it might cost to take patients to Robrtsganj about Rs 50000 through private means due to this situation, Ashram is in process of developing Isolation Center at Ashram. District CMO has promised to extend help by sending doctors once or twice a week. Serious patients will be taken to Robertsganj by Ashram ambulances also.
Come forward and donate. You may please donate directly to bank account.

Budget and NGO Sector
Experts commenting on the budget each year use words like ‘pro-corporate’, ‘urban centric’, ‘pro-farmer’ or ‘rural focussed’ based on the allocations made or their own preferences. Some of the other common expressions that have been used to describe the union budget are words like ‘middle-class friendly’, ‘social sector inclined’, ‘taxation heavy’, and ‘election year budget’. In a year that is still seeing COVID ravaging the world, one can expect now to see a ‘COVID response’ in the budget. Whether it is increased spending on health care and vaccines, or stimulating the failing economy – the budget is expected to reflect the concerns of the government in managing both the COVID pandemic and its social & economic fallout. Another possibility is the political need to reflect the concerns of the protesting farmers while keeping in mind the need for additional defence spending considering the growing Chinese threat.
From this perspective, one also hopes that the Prime Minister’s oft repeated vision of making India self-reliant (Atmanirbhar), enabling a $5 trillion economy and making India a scientific superpower are also kept in mind. Programs like Ayushman Bharat, UDAN, Rashtriya Madhyamik Shiksha Abhiyan (RMSA), Atal Innovation Mission and ‘Make in India’ are just beginning to show encouraging response and need continued support.

Prayas, Ek Nayi Shuruat
People who are associated with employee associations and unions are hot blooded creatures in general. Specially leaders are always in talks and they kept sharing agendas. Whenever they are finding someone acting as his opponent, they start attacking on him bringing even his personal matters. In general, I maintain good relations with all, as I have my own agenda of asking for contributions for some cause. But, I also maintain to speak right things whenever I have to take some stand. Leader of association kept meeting with me and kept sharing lots of things as he knew that I had good hold on my batch-mates and many employees due to my social involvement. Once he started attacking a new employee, who seemed very emphatic and emerged as leader for new employees. Meanwhile he brought his wife who was running the organization were not good as they kept meeting some senior officials who were not in good light. He criticized his social activities. At that time, I immediately opposed him and countered, please do not attack anyone who was involved in social activities. Anyone who are involved in social activities are part of social community and it is my moral ground to defend them till I get enough evidence against them. Many people used to attack Dayanand Mishraji, that he used to personally benefit because of social work. I used to defend them that if you were sure that he was getting personal benefits, then as social activities were open place, you should have involved in that and would have availed benefit.
Anyway Prayas, ek nayi shuruat had caused some harm to me. Under the leadership of training center head, we organized entrepreneurship program for housewives so that they might get some job to use their talents. Meanwhile, these ladies were also made to get associated with some faculty to seek job. Not moving much ahead in that line, they suddenly entered in social activities in very natural ways. There were really adventurous. Anyway they gave presentation to some senior authorities and on their suggestions they started Prayas, ek nayi shuruat. They were unaware of cunningness of some senior officials, who wanted to discredit me from my activities of Prayas. Anyway in locality my name expended as many people started calling me that they had extended help to my Prayas Team for social activities like giving carpet, chairs etc.
Anyway I sensed the cunningness and hence thought of renaming my group activities. After many days of deliberation, we zeroed at NDRS. But that name caused problem to some authorities and hence I again started looking for some friendly name. While teaching children about Vivekananda and his Ramakrishna Mission, I zeroed on Navodaya Mission.
