Sri Soumyadeep of Agniveer Bengal with students during first class

The Agniveer Bengal has successfully started the “Rural Development Project” under the leadership of Dr. Samir Chatterjee, President, Agniveer Bengal and relentless efforts of Sri Sanjeev Kr. Das, Central Observer. Undertaken by Agniveer and Jan Swabhiman Welfare Society to impart soft skills for FREE to the rural youth to empower them to carry out e-commerce and other job opportunities, this project is well structured to include the latest courses which will serve to provide them self-employment in today’s world of IT and promote their local culture and economy. They will also become torchbearers of Indian culture & heritage in cyber-world.

We started with 17 students from Laxman Das Lane area, Howrah , West Bengal on 19th February where Shri Sanjeev Kr. Das explained them the vision and goal of our organization and Shri Soumya Deep Chatterjee, the Course Coordinator and Instructor, explained them the advantages of the course to be taught to them and how it shall empower them financially in long term. Surprisingly on 23rd February 2013, there was an overwhelming presence of 28 enthusiastic students from diverse financial and social backgrounds reflecting a ray of hope in the eyes of all after a long-term frustration among the poor youth of the area.

Today there are more than 50 aspirants and we are in process of finding resources to accommodate them.

The class was attended mostly by poor students from socially disadvantaged background ranging from Class 10th to B.Com including 9 girls on the very first day. Apart from teaching the basics of computers and HTML, Shri Soumya Deep Chatterjee started the first day explaining the youth to take up the responsibility on their own shoulders to live in “Swabhiman” or self esteem with their heads held high. He also told them to cut the vicious circle of poverty and exploitation by being self-reliable and ensured them that Agniveer is with them as an all-weather friend.

The students are planned to be taught HTML, CSS, Javascript and PHP so that they become Web-Developers/Designers and get tech-enabled enough to earn a decent living. They also learn ability to promote their local culture and economy online and hence create an IT hub. The methodology is not a classroom system but a Gurukul-Model of teaching where few students learn and conceive the knowledge and become teachers to others and impart whatever they have learned from the first teacher. Hence this model ensures fast propagation of knowledge (and hence self-reliance) to the masses. Further, the model is integrated with lessons on self-help, motivation, culture, ethics and business management to create successful entrepreneurs.

President, Jan Swabhiman Welfare Society and Founder- Agniveer, Shri Sanjeev Newar Ji has been the mastermind behind this model. Agniveer is committed to get various relevant projects both from India and abroad for post-curriculum employment of participants. We pray to Almighty to show us the correct way for the noble cause. And we promise that we will keep doing whatever little we can till our last breath.

Om Shantih Om Shantih Om Shantih

Agniveer symbolizes the efforts of a soul marching towards the ultimate goal through destruction of ego and falsehood. With focus only on right knowledge, right actions and right devotion. In other words, Agniveer stands for compassion, character, tolerance and rational humanism. Agniveer believes in One World, One Humanity, One Family.

Small projects can be handed over to well-to-do Hindus in India and abroad at village level, but we need selfless committed social workers to head and supervise such projects. Lately, I find even Gurukul educated shastries gone greedy like traditional Pandits/Pujaris. They are not interested in propagating message of Arya… Read more »

Hi Jay Arya, Not sure if you ever heard of Rajiv Malhotra. Something I totally agree with him on is some Indians have a sever inferiority complex. They should stand up for themselves. That means, their culture, Dharmic thought, and nation. It is really sad there are to many Indians… Read more »

Continued Good example of that is Indians that have converted to other religions from a Dharmic religion. They look pathetic it is sometimes even funny to watch those fools. They think maybe if I convert people will respect me, but instead they get treated like shit even more. And I… Read more »

Hi Jay and Agniveer,

I agree with both of you on this. The one area that seems to be ignored and is a huge huge state is Andhra Pradesh, the Telugu state. Please setup shuddhi program there.

Thanks,
Krishnarao

Agniveer Mahoday, It is indeed very heartening to know that Agniveer Bengal, together with Jan Swabhiman Welfare Society, has embarked on this noble venture. No doubt you must be eyeing an opportunity to spread computer networks in as many parts of rural Bengal (and possibly even rural India) as possible.… Read more »

Dear Brother,

Your suggestions are valuable. We will explore options with NABARD. There are lots of challenges in such activities and lack of appropriate resources. If intellectual community supports, it can create revolution.
