PComprehensive education is must

As part of their efforts towards ensuring better heart health, Gleneagles Global Hospitals launched # , a 360-degree campaign under the ‘Let It Beat’ initiative. The monthlong campaign will highlight the lesser known serious condition ‘Heart Failure’ and its stages.

The concept behind the campaign arises from many kinds of disappointments and disasters that one comes across in life and gets affected by taking them to the heart. The idea emerges from the customary response to failure – “It’s okay. Don’t take it to heart.”

The campaign urges people to not take things to heart expect heart failure, which should be taken seriously and treated through medical intervention. A progressively degenerative heart disease, heart failure is quite different from heart attacks or cardiac arrests.

The campaign weaves in channels like digital, radio, social welfare, and community health initiative and in-clinic communication to engage with maximum audiences across the country.

Through videos and radio in-call shows, this campaign will urge people to share stories of characters in their lives who take to heart the smallest of hurdles or failures. The best story wins a free cardiac check-up at Gleneagles Global Hospitals.

Ramesh Krishnan, CEO India Operations Division, Parkway Pantai said, “Our endeavour at Gleneagles Global Hospitals has always been to create awareness around life threatening diseases and its causes.

Through our nationwide campaign we aim to reach out to the masses and urge upon the need of not ignoring the initial symptoms of heart failure; a step towards saving oneself from serious heart ailments. Through our series of initiatives, our focus has been on creating a movement to promote healthy living; ensuring quality healthcare services.”

Dr Jagprag Singh Gujral, Group COO, Gleneagles Globa lHospitals said, "Considering the growing incidence and higher morbidity of heart failure patients compared to the Western world, there is need for dedicated heart failure programs that provide end-to-end and comprehensive treatment modalities.”

Airtel free 15 GB 4G data offer for 3 Months – Trickspaid

India’s largest telecom operator Bharti Airtel on Tuesday said it has deployed a 5G capable technology, which will offer faster data speeds to consumers and improve network capacity.

The deployment of ‘massive multiple-input multiple-output (Mimo) technology’, a key driver for futuristic 5G networks, will start from Bengaluru and Kolkata, the company said in a statement. The technology will also be rolled out to other parts of the country “soon”, it added.

Airtel said the new technology will bolster the current network capacity by 5-7 times, and result in 2-3 times faster data speeds for customers. “India joins a select group of countries globally to deploy massive Mimo, marking a major technological leap for the telecom sector in the country,” the Airtel release said.

Customers will enjoy faster data speeds on their existing 4G mobile devices without having to upgrade or change their tariff plans, it added. “As one of the few commercial deployments of massive Mimo globally, the deployment puts India on the world map of technology advancement and digital revolution,” it said.

The announcement comes as part of Airtel’s Project Leap, an ongoing network transformation programme. “Data speeds will now also be seamless, offering enhanced user experience even indoors, in crowded places and high rise buildings.”

“It would enable multiple users and multiple devices to work simultaneously without facing any congestion,” the statement added. The move comes at a time when the government has formed a high-level forum to guide India to start 5G service by 2020, a technology that will deliver wireless broadband speed of about 10,000mbps in urban areas and 1,000mbps in rural belts.

In a bid to facilitate research and development activities for 5G service rollout, the government is also looking at setting up a Rs500-crore support fund

Smart ways to choose your study destination abroad

Who doesn't want to study abroad? Even if you discount the quality of education, there is a whole new world out there waiting to be explored.

The experience, exposure, life skills you will receive is priceless. However, there is one major factor which stops many of us from adding flight to our foreign dreams and more often than not - it is the cost. Living and studying in some of the best of countries and some the best of colleges in those countries, can be exorbitantly expensive.

The world offers a quiver full of choices for those who seek. UNESCO lists more than 1600 universities globally. Each of which offers 100 different courses and it can be a challenge figuring out what and where you want to study.

Now, the good news is that, it is possible to study abroad on a small budget. Even there are countries where tuition fees are low, or even non-existent. Some of these countries are Norway, Taiwan, Germany, France, Mexico, Spain and Italy.

Here are some smart ways by Gurinder Bhatti, Chairman & Managing Director, ESS Global, to choose your study destination that doesn't burn a hole in your pocket:

• First and foremost, be true to yourself - Go for a degree and a college you want to and not something you think you need to do or have to. If you decide to go for your passion, it will be much easier to go through tough times.

• Research carefully and use multiple sources: A degree takes about one to four years to complete and can be direly expensive. Though it is true, it can be a life altering experience yet doing your own research will only enrich your choices. Go through university websites meticulously and through student's forums.

• Search for what you want. Maybe you want to study in a university where the language of teaching is French. Or you have a specific budget in mind or you want to study in a university in a particular region. Choose a subject you want to study and narrow down your choices. Choose your preferred university and the course you want to opt for in those universities. You can check out the international rankings too.

• Be on a constant lookout for scholarships that can reduce your expenses of studying abroad. Not all scholarships have the same terms and conditions. Some cover tuition fees and living costs whereas others- student visa and air fair or both. When planning and budgeting, it is wise to send multiple applications to all scholarship-granting institutions. Start with your admissions office and the university you have chosen to study in. There are several Government scholarships too.

• Enquire about the tuition fees and select your payment scheme. Tuition fees is one of the major cost for anybody who is looking to study abroad. Prices vary per country, course and institution. There are schemes such as loans and "pay later" options that you can count on in order to save yourself from paying such exorbitant amount upfront.

• Keep a budget aside for miscellaneous expenses such as books and extra-curricular activities. Such expenses are often kept out of the tuition fees. Calculate how much expenses you require depending on the course you opted for.

• Also, different countries have different cost of living: Calculate the cost of living in the country of your choice. Refer to sources such as the program coordinator and available statistics and country comparisons. Europe has several top notch schools and excellent programs but it also has cities where the cost of living is very high. On the other hand, Asian countries have relatively affordable cost of living and premier educational institutions. Keep in mind that cost of living fluctuates so keep a track on your budget.

Schooling without learning: World Bank warns of prevailing crisis in India

The World Bank has warned of a learning crisis in global education particularly in low and middle-income countries like India, underlining that schooling without learning is not just a wasted development opportunity, but also a great injustice to children worldwide.

The Bank in a latest report yesterday noted that millions of young students in these countries face the prospect of lost opportunity and lower wages in later life because their primary and secondary schools are failing to educate them to succeed in life.

According to the 'World Development Report 2018: 'Learning to Realise Education's Promise', released yesterday, India ranks second after Malawi in a list of 12 countries wherein a grade two student couldnot read a single word of a short text.

India also tops the list of seven countries in which a grade two student could not perform two-digit subtraction.

"In rural India, just under three-quarters of students in grade 3 could not solve a two-digit subtraction such as 46-17, and by grade 5 half could still not do so," the World Bank said.

The report argued that without learning, education will fail to deliver on its promise to eliminate extreme poverty and create shared opportunity and prosperity for all.

"Even after several years in school, millions of children cannot read, write or do basic math. This learning crisis is widening social gaps instead of narrowing them," it said.

Young students who are already disadvantaged by poverty, conflict, gender or disability reach young adulthood without even the most basic life skills, it said.

"This learning crisis is a moral and economic crisis," World Bank Group President Jim Yong Kim said.

"When delivered well, education promises young people employment, better earnings, good health, and a life without poverty," he added.

"For communities, education spurs innovation, strengthens institutions, and fosters social cohesion. But these benefits depend on learning, and schooling without learning is a wasted opportunity. More than that, it's a great injustice: the children whom societies fail the most are the ones who are most in need of a good education to succeed in life," the Bank president said.

In rural India in 2016, only half of grade 5 students could fluently read text at the level of the grade 2 curriculum, which included sentences (in the local language) such as 'It was the month of rains' and 'There were black clouds in the sky'.

"These severe shortfalls constitute a learning crisis," the Bank report said.

According to the report, in Andhra Pradesh in 2010, low-performing students in grade 5 were no more likely to answer a grade 1 question correctly than those in grade 2.

As KISS is a successful model for eradication of poverty through education, it has become a subject of research for many eminent and reputed anthropologists from India and abroad. Findings of a research work on KISS has now featured in two popular textbooks, namely ‘Window on Humanity-A Concise Introduction to Anthropology’ and ‘Mirror for Humanity-A Concise Introduction to Cultural Anthropology (8th Edition) written by Conrad Philip Kottak. These two books are very popular for introductory level anthropology course in U.S. universities.

UoH to coach poor students for Civils

Hyderabad: With a view to provide academic support to the students from the underprivileged sections to do well in competitive exams, University of Hyderabad (UoH) would provide coaching to the students of BC, SC, ST and minority communities for civils services examinations for the first time this year.

The university is aiming at the preliminary examinations of the Union Public Service Commission to be held in June next year. About 100 students will be given coaching to appear for the exams.

Though UoH has organised classes for students of underprivileged sections to attend competitive exams in the past, from this year onwards, it will put special focus on civil service examinations. The initiative has been taken on the directions of University Grants Commission (UGC).

The coaching programmes for the students who want to appear for the competitive exams have been disturbed in the recent past due to agitations in the university. Now, it wants to hold them regularly and streamline the system. University officials said the earlier coaching programmes were effective and helped the students to grab opportunities. Several alumni of the university landed in good jobs all over the country.

Speaking to The Hans India, programme coordinator and Head of Department of English of the university Prof Krishnaiah said the coaching would be given for three months, starting from October. He said classes would commence in October with a break in November and December for semester exams. They would be continued in January, February and March next year. He informed that expert faculty would be engaged in teaching and experienced teachers in the IAS academies would be picked up.

Coaching will be provided in six to seven subjects in which prelims exam would be held. The options being given by the students would be considered in finalising the subjects. Krishnaiah said the notification for the programme would be issued on September 29 and the university was expecting to get about 100 students out of the total strength for 5,000 enrolled for the programme.

The university focused on the research activities and mostly arts students would be benefitted with the civil services coaching programme, he said. The UGC has given about Rs 12 lakh for the programme and students who take the coaching would be provided with required material free of cost.

A mock test would be conducted for the students after the coaching programme to help them to have the experience of real exam. The university may consider providing further coaching to the students who pass the preliminary examinations.

Did Aditya Birla Group shut down fashion portal Abof too soon?

Diversified conglomerate Aditya Birla Group might have shut its e-commerce fashion venture too early. The textile-to-telecom major has officially announced that it will shut down (All About Fashion) — launched in 2015 — by the end of this year, attributing it to the unviability of e-commerce ventures as a whole.

Talking to BusinessLine, Santrupt Misra, the group’s Head HR, said: “Every business starts with a set of assumptions. We expected e-commerce to mature faster than it isright now. Consumers are constantly looking for discounts and we were not sure how long it will take to turn profitable. We hoped to earn a return, but hope is a poor strategy.” Aditya Birla Group, which has a large interest in retail and textile, however, is not new to the e-commerce business compared with its peers such as Tata Group (Tata CLiQ) and Reliance (AJIO), who entered the segment last year.

The group ventured into the burgeoning market in 2013 with, a business by erstwhile Aditya Birla Nuvo, to sell its fashion labels — Allen Solly, Van Heusen, Louis Philippe, People and Peter England — with a click-and-brick strategy. However, the company pivoted from that portal and instead created separate portals for each brand.

BusinessLine spoke to several employees at Abof, few consultants and industry experts, to understand why the company had to shut the website completely and not get all its online fashion ventures consolidated.

A retail consultant, who requested anonymity, said: “At a time when Amazon and Flipkart are still burning huge cash to acquire customers, why would anyone go to Abof to buy products at full price and that too private label.” Abof was created with an idea of manufacturing and selling private labels under the same brand name.

He also said that the approach of the company may have been unlike a start-up.

“I think they spent a lot of money and time strategising and charting out a plan for Abof, whereas the e-commerce business is one of the most dynamic ones and keeps changing every six months. Such businesses have long gestation periods and one has to keep patience,” he said, adding that Amazon posted loss for several years before making its first profit.

Misra, however, dismissed these views. “Just because other players are burning cash, it doesn’t make sense for us to do so. E-commerce is not our only business. We could use this money more productively in other businesses.”

The waiting game

Anil Kumar, CEO, RedSeer Consulting, said that in e-commerce, customer acquisition is still very high, and in such a scenario, a model without discounts and marketing will result in poor traffic, translating into poor sales. “E-commerce is an expensive and painful journey; it all depends on the company whether they want to be a part of it or wait for the market to mature,” Kumar said, adding that compared with Abof, AJIO and Tata CLiQ seem very serious about e-commerce and are already putting omni-channel strategies in place to compete with pure-play online companies.

Aditya Birla Group however has clearly said that it is not keen on revisiting the business, and the employees, about 240-odd, have been given four months of notice to figure out if they want to stay with the group or quit. If they wish to quit, they will be provided four-and-half months’ salary as compensation, Misra said.

Today's all dedication news date 25|09|2017

French President Emmanuel Macron has promised to help raise more than USD 1 billion in new funding for education in the developing world, calling schools vital in countering extremism.

The French leader made the pledge in a video to thousands of music fans at the Global Citizen Festival, a concert in New York’s Central Park headlined by Stevie Wonder and Green Day that aims to build support for international development aid.

Macron said yesterday that he was working with Senegal to boost the Global Partnership for Education which brings together donors, international organisations and the private sector to expand and improve schooling around the world. 

Macron, whose video was introduced by Senegal’s ambassador to the United Nations, Fode Seck, said that France would co-host a financing conference for the partnership on February 8 in Dakar.

“It is all about education precisely to fight against terrorism, fundamentalism,” Macron said against the backdrop of the skyline in New York, where he spent the past week attending the UN General Assembly.

“It is all about education to help women to build their lives, to help people to have a decent life,” he said.

“I do believe we can deliver today and the momentum is now,” he added.

Macron said that he would work ahead of the conference to help the partnership meet its goal of USD 3.1 billion in funding for 2018 through 2020, of which USD 2 billion has already been committed.

The group said that the money would assist in the education of 870 million children through assistance for schools in 89 developing countries.

Pop superstar Rihanna, who serves as an ambassador for the partnership, earlier met Macron in Paris.

Global Citizen, whose festival has taken place since 2012 on the sidelines of the UN meeting, hands out tickets for free to fans who commit to take action against poverty such as writing letters.

The latest festival comes as US President Donald Trump threatens sweeping cuts to foreign assistance as part of his America First foreign policy.

Today's all educational news date 21/09/2017

President Ram Nath Kovind said education of girls will help create a responsible future generation. Institutions of higher learning, he said, must be upgraded to make them “constantly embrace change.”

He was speaking on the occasion of the Golden Jubilee of Delhi’s Jesus and Mary College. “An educated girl contributes to the economy. She also ensures that other children in her family, as well as the family she may be married into, are educated. The next generation is made responsible and educated through the education of the girl.”

He said the nature of the economy and the workplace were changing. “The Fourth Industrial Revolution and the advances in digitisation and robotics will together make certain types of jobs obsolete and also create many new opportunities. How our society copes with these dramatic changes will be dependent on how our leading institutions of higher learning – institutions such as Jesus and Mary College – will respond.”

“We need to upgrade our higher educational system and, to the extent possible, make it future proof. Our education infrastructure, curricula and modes of teaching have to become 21st century-compatible and be nimble and dynamic enough to constantly embrace change,” said the President. “As visitor of the University of Delhi and of over a hundred other universities, these are issues that concern me.”

He said India was in the midst of multiple transformations. Education could be a means to make India a developed society. “It is crucial to harness the energy of our young people and use it to make our country a developed society. Education is fundamental to this effort — calling for both access to education and quality of education,” said the President.

He lauded the efforts of the Christian community in the field of education. “I must note that the Christian community — whose history in India goes back 2,000 years and which has contributed so much to our shared culture — has carved a special role for itself in education. Missionary institutions such as this one have become symbols of scholarship, dedicated teaching and academic excellence.

Today's all educational news important information

Within a former railroad depot-turned-restaurant, on the edge of the Downtown Arts District in Los Angeles, an ensemble entertains diners with a joyous mix of gypsy jazz, blues and Americana styles, playing fiddles, mandolin, trumpet and more.

The group, called The Vignes Rooftop Revival -- named for an early session atop the roof of a nearby artist’s loft -- is more than just a popular local band. With a revolving lineup of up to 15 musicians, the Los Angeles act also is a flourishing small business.

Commuting to gigs in the Arts District by foot, bicycle and skateboard, the group has built a solid clientele of venues, including Eat Drink Americano, the restaurant on the railroad siding. During a break in their set, band members engage a visitor in conversation, explaining how they honed both their musicianship and music business smarts just a few miles away at the Thornton School of Music at the University of Southern California.

“Musicians today need to understand how to survive in a way that does not compromise their music,” says guitarist-trumpeter Erik Miron, 30, who graduated from USC Thornton in 2009. An understanding of business helps, he says, as long as “it remains in service to the art.”

Across the nation, from Los Angeles to New York, Miami to Nashville, colleges and universities with music programs are preparing students for a new era of entrepreneurship. Gone are the days when aspiring artists simply sought to “sign a deal” to launch their careers. For young musicians and those seeking music careers behind the spotlight, the availability of higher-education music business programs has never been greater. These 15 schools are at the top of their class.

Education reform progressing strongly

Since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China in 2012, Xi Jinping, general secretary of the CPC Central Committee, has spoken about the importance of education on several occasions, highlighting many aspects including fairness in the admission and examination procedures.

Over the past five years, the main aim of China's education reform has been to promote modernization of education governance. The CPC Central Committee's decisions on some major issues for comprehensively deepening reform has focused on provincial governments' education planning and coordination rights, and the importance of schools to function independently and improve their internal governance structure.

The decisions have also focused on streamlining the relationship between public institutions and the education departments, and to improve the management of public schools, scientific research institutions and hospitals.

Education reform has made remarkable progress over the past five years in line with the goal of the overall reform to establish a modern education system. And to help delegate the administrative powers to the schools and extend their right to function independently, a series of administrative exams and approvals, including those for national key subjects, non-academic higher education, educational websites and network schools, have been cancelled since 2014.

As part of the 13th Five-Year Plan (2016-20), the national education development plan released in January emphasizes the importance of the schools' right to function independently-and its specific measures include coordinating and promoting the comprehensive reform of colleges, reforming the review mechanism for granting academic degrees, evaluating the personnel management system in colleges, and improving the methods to assess the professional ranks.

On the road to modernizing the education system, some progress has been made in the construction of college charters. In November 2013, the Ministry of Education approved the release of the charters of six universities, including Renmin University of China. Till June 2015, the Ministry had given approval for the release of charters by all the universities that were part of the 211 University Project (the nationwide key university construction project that aims to build about 100 key universities and a batch of key subjects). This is of great significance to colleges that function according to the charter as well as the law.

According to the Ministry of Education, all colleges and universities in China should establish a mechanism that conforms to the ministry's regulation, and the college charter should be approved by the ministry or provincial level educational administrative departments. Which means primary and middle schools, kindergarten as well as secondary vocational schools will have to prepare similar "school charters".

In general, China's education reform has already made big achievements in delegating the central authority's power to the lower local authorities and local schools, expanding schools' rights of functioning independently, as well as establishing a modern education system.

But still some reforms remain difficult to implement such as the canceling of schools' administrative rankings. The decision to comprehensively deepen reform makes it important for gradually canceling the administrative ranking of schools, in order to further promote the reforms at the next stage.

The author is deputy director of the 21st Century Education Research Institute.

What is the identity of Sidhi Sayyad jali, the historic historian of Ahmedabad?

The historic Sidi Syedi mosque's gully world is famous for Ahmedabad's identity. The specialty of this grill is that this large nets are made from the same stone. This gauze is considered as a benign model of embroidery. Apart from being one of the famous buildings in Ahmedabad, Sidi Syedi Jali is also used as an icon of Ahmedabad.
Traveling to Ahmedabad, the country and the foreigners do not go to see Sidi Saeed. The Sidi Sayyadni Mosque is located near the red gates in the busy area of ​​the city. There are four stores on one wall. The design of these creations is a beehive. In addition, Sidi Sayyad's nets, which are called as palm trees, have a net lattice. At first glance, it seems that the tree of palm trees has fitted it between the stones. But it is a fine artistic lattice with sandstone stones. Sidi Saeed Ghali has been established as a memento of the city. In the Sultanate era, in 1573 Sidi Sayyed created this nets. As the Sadi Saeed was made, this gale became popular only by its name. The width of this grill is ten feet and is seven feet high.

Looks like a javelin is embroidered on clothes instead of stone. When the light of the lengthening sun rises from the lattice, there is a very different atmosphere. Sidi Saeed created Benmoon mosque from the income of his estate villages. But after the conquest of Akbar, Sidi Saeed's income ceased, he could not complete the incomplete work of the mosque. Therefore, the stones are placed in place of the grill instead of one. He died after being buried in this mosque. There is no support from the fact that the British have taken third jali. When Russia's Zar visited India, he visited Sidi Said's mesh. After that, Queen Elizabeth of England was surprised to see the grille carving.
Officials of the Ahmedabad corporation also offer guests a replica of the grill. A replica of the grill established as a symbol of identity of Ahmedabad takes visitors with visitors from outside. The Indian Institute of Management has given it its title.

Enjoy ... pave the way for petrol and diesel prices across the country

States have agreed to increase the VAT on natural gas by 5%. States have also agreed to reduce the VAT of other petroleum products, such as petrol and diesel used as inputs in the manufacturing sector. This has been a major success in keeping the price of petroleum goods across the country as a whole.
After the implementation of the states, the GST Council will discuss this scheme. A senior government official told ET that the council will make a final decision on this proposal. There is a discussion between the center and the states at the level of the officials. The GST Council had previously discussed this issue and the states were asked to prepare the scheme. Another government official said that now the states have to take action. It is noteworthy that petroleum products are not covered under GST.
From the beginning, the government had planned to bring petroleum products under GST. However, the states did not support the move as there was significant discourse from the sector. If the states improve the proposal, the way prices of petrol products will become paved throughout the country. Petroleum Minister Dharmendra Pradhan on Wednesday argued strongly to include Petroleum products under GST.
He said that the time has come for GST Council to include Petroleum Products under GST. State officials said the issue of reducing VAT on other gas petroleum products and five percent of the VAT on natural gas was the main issue. Earlier amendment was proposed in the Central Sales Tax. So, the cost of producing goods under GST does not increase. Now they have to pay 1 -30% VAT for getting petroleum

Public-private cooperation must in education system

Mumbai: The Centre, using its human and material resources, can lead the education initiative, and the public-private cooperation is the need of the hour, said Anil Swarup, secretary, Department of School Education and Literacy, government of India. He was speaking at the India Summit 2017 conducted by Asian Venture Philanthropy Network (AVPN) recently.

“The AVPN summit is the first effort towards establishing a platform for mutual understanding and cooperation of all key players in the education system: the government, education foundations, investors, and pedagogues,” said AVPN chief executive officer Naina Subberwal Batra.

Elizabeth Mehta, founder director of Muktangan, said, “On this platform, we can establish a dialogue that is comprehensive and inclusive.” Two hundred and fifty participants, including leaders and innovators, CEOs of educational foundations, social purpose organisations, NGOs, philanthropic and investment foundations discussed the prospects and challenges, shared their experiences, and debated on the role of technology. They opined that the government must lead the education drive with involvement of private players.

Sessions devoted to integrating technology for positive learning outcomes, talked about how students can benefit from adaptive learning platforms, and warned against seeing technology as a panacea.

“The technology can help us do more in terms of education, in providing real-time feedback and evaluation, but it can not serve as a substitute for teachers – the role of teacher remains central in the process of education,” said Sandeep Bapna, head, Khan Academy.

Shrikant Sinha, CEO, NASSCOM Foundation, said, it is neither money nor technologies that the sector is lacking. “The modern policies are framed on every scale, but the implementation lags. Comprehensive schemes must be worked out because delivering education is the biggest challenge.”

Lisa Green, vice-president for corporate citizenship APAC, Credit Suisse, said the key to success is to have the government’s support. “The maturity of funders does not know geographic borders.”

“Early childhood is the time to invest in education,” said Monika Mehta, director, investments, Omidyar Network.

The AVPN released a report highlighting major gaps in the education system.

Education panel for English-medium education in SDMC schools

An SDMC panel today proposed to impart English-medium education in its schools, from nursery and onwards, a move that seeks to counter competition from the Delhi government schools. 

The Education Committee of the South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) under the chairmanship of Sunil Sahdev discussed the matter, among a number of issues related to primary schools. 

Sahdev said the proposal has been made "keeping in mind the demand from parents and advancement of technology and education system in fast-changing times". 

"All SDMC schools should be allowed to have one English- medium section in the school. 

"The schools which at present do not having provision for it, will start English medium from nursery and one section from Class-I," Sahdev was quoted as saying in an SDMC statement. 

In future, if there is an increase in demand for English medium education and number of students is more for the same, the number of sections may be be increased for such classes, the SDMC said. 

"The prescribed admission rules and regulations will be followed. Children who have studied in nursery class in SDMC schools will be considered for admission in class-I. 

"It is obvious that progressively this English medium section of class-I will reach upto class-V in five years. Subjects in each class of English-medium will be taught as per the practice followed by the Directorates of Education of Delhi government, in their schools," the civic body said. 

Sahdev said the SDMC's zonal heads had received request from parents for starting English-medium education in their schools. 

The Delhi government schools are also providing primary education through its Sarvodaya Vidyalayas and providing English-medium education in its primary classes, the SDMC said. 

"These (Sarvodaya) schools are in the vicinity of municipal schools and therefore attract parents to enrol their children in those schools. 

"Also, theres is intense competition and, parents are also very keen to get their children educated in an English- medium school," the committee said. 

The SDMC said, that during the time of the erstwhile unified municipal corporation of Delhi (MCD), English-medium sections were started in class-I of a few selected schools. "However, number of such schools under the SDMC is very low," it said

Transformational change can be achieved from within the system.

Given the enormity of India’s challenges, the most successful non-profit organisations are ones that have found pathways to systemic change. These pathways have come either from finding market-based solutions or by engaging with the government.  The idea of working with the government to deliver solutions at scale is a holy grail in the world of non-profit organisations. Yet, there is no playbook by which non-profit organisations can crack this code.
The education sector holds interesting examples of non-profit organisations that have worked in transformational ways to drive change within the system. Below given are categorises in these approaches:
Holding the government accountable
Since Independence, the government has spent extensive resources on ensuring access to education. This investment has resulted in near universal enrolment in primary school. After addressing access, the focus of the system have to shift towards improving the quality of education received by students. Non-profit organisations have played a significant role in ensuring that this shift takes place within the government.
Pratham, one of India’s largest non-profit organisation in the education space, had been working at scale, preparing children to learn in the formal school environment. In 2008, they launched the ASER survey as a means of measuring whether children were learning. This household-based learning assessment has since become the standard by which the progress (or lack thereof) of the education system is measured.  Media, policy makers and civil society pay attention to these results.
Creating innovation for cost-effective service delivery

Free of bureaucracy and institutional inertia, non-profit organisations can be nimble and innovative in demonstrating cost-effective ways to deliver services. Organisations such as Gyan Shala in Gujarat emerged as key innovators in delivering high-quality, low-cost education in alternative settings to government-run schools.
Unlike private low-cost schools, there was an explicit focus on innovation and working closely with the state to create pathways for adoption by the government system. After demonstrating success with its models, Gyan Shala garnered government funding that enabled it to expand significantly.
More recently, a public-private partnership (PPP) model is emerging as an institutional method to harness innovations. While the aided school model has been a form of PPPs for decades, municipalities like the Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai and the South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) have recently experimented with whole school adoption as a means of providing high quality education and boosting enrolment in government schools.  In both these municipalities, the government has asked non-profit organisations to operate schools with low enrolment and given them the operational flexibility and control to innovate. Non-profit organisations do not charge fees and operate these schools at a cost similar to the government’s per-child expenditure.

Akanksha, a Mumbai-based non-profit organisation, operates 21 schools across Mumbai and Pune. Students in their schools consistently outperform the average municipal school learning outcomes. Non-profit organisations considering this model, however, require a certain amount of operational funding to manage these schools. These funds are required mainly because municipalities fail to reimburse these schools on time.

Old teacher, new lessons

Raju stared at the building and the board that said National High School. It was the same board and the school too looked exactly the same. But Raju was a changed person.

He had left school with so many hopes. And what had happened? He had failed. He had lost the money he had invested in his company. All that remained was his company, which would soon be defunct.

Why had he come to his old school? No one knew him here and coming here wasn’t going to help.

“Hello,” someone called out.

Raju turned, surprised. The school vacations were on and he hadn’t expected to see anyone.


When he saw who it was, Raju’s heart sank. It was Ganapathy sir, the strictest teacher in school. Perhaps, Raju thought hopefully, the teacher wouldn’t recognise him. But Ganapathy sir was staring at him.

“Weren’t you a student here?” he asked. “About twenty years back?”

Raju nodded. “What do you do now?” Ganapathy sir asked.

What could he tell his teacher? But Ganapathy sir was waiting, so Raju said, “I worked for a few years, then invested in a company...” “It’s doing well, I hope?” Ganapathy sir asked.

“Actually...” Raju said, “No. It is not doing well at all. I may have to shut it down and lose everything!”

There, he thought, he had said it out loud. But sir didn’t seem to think this was the end of the world. “Very sad, very sad,” he said, shaking his head.

“But you can always work hard and get your company back!”

“That’s impossible!” Raju said.

“No, don’t think it’s impossible!” Ganapathy sir said. “It is possible...” He exclaimed suddenly, “You never did tell me your name!”

“Rajashekhar Varadarajan,” said Raju.

“Aha! The-Boy-Who-Could-Do-Anything!” Ganapathy sir said. He looked with greater interest at Raju and said, “That’s what we called you, you know, in the staff room!”

“You should change it to the Man-Who-Can’t-Do-Anything!” Raju said bitterly.

“No, no,” Ganapathy sir said. “You can’t tell me what to call you. You see,” he looked at Raju seriously, “an old teacher remembers things from your past. And you will always be the boy who was meant to do great things, achieve the impossible!”

Raju stared at his old teacher.

“In fact,” Ganapathy sir said dreamily, “I think you can still do anything you want to!”

Raju nodded, his thoughts confused. What did Ganapathy sir mean? Could it be that...? Was it possible that...?

“Goodbye, sir,” he said abruptly.

“Come again,” Ganapathy sir called out, “if you need anything.”

Raju knew he would not need to. Twenty years after he had left school, his teacher had still managed to teach him something new.

Ganapathy sir had taught him to look carefully, look closely at himself. And now, Raju was determined to find and be that Rajashekhar Vardarajan, the Boy-Who -Could-Do-Anything.

The family of the victim has made a shocking claim that the girl had reported the matter to a school teacher who did not pursue it. They claimed the teacher said she would deal with it but did not bother to report it to the management or the parents.

The family has also alleged that the teacher tried to bribe them and influence the staff of the hospital, where the child was first taken to. However, the allegations have been denied by the teacher and the school management.

They also alleged that the stance of the hospital management changed after the teacher spoke to the nurse who first told them that the child could have been a victim of assault.

‘Offered money’

“The doctors at Chacha Nehru Hospital said they did not have the facilities to treat my child and seemed to be in a hurry to refer her to LNJP. We asked about the nurse, but neither the doctor nor the support staff seemed to be knowing anything about her,” said the girl’s mother.

She even alleged that the teacher offered them money in exchange for not naming the school before the police or the press. The teacher said she had offered money but for treatment.

The mother claimed the teacher offered chocolates to bribe the child.

However, the teacher said: “It’s normal to offer goodies to an unwell child . I am not even a permanent staff member of the school. I have children too and would never do something that compromises the safety of a child. The truth is I was unaware and so were others in school
