As we know, school children in the cities do get opportunity to interact with people from various fields, however, children in our villages do not get to interact with people from various fields. We intend to get people from various career http://suhrid.org/25-nov-2017/fields to interact with them. In some schools, children are too young to define their career, however, having met with someone can impress upon their young minds and can etch a memory which can change direction of their life forever. With this in mind, we have decided to make use of every such opportunity of interaction with children.
As a first, a scientist grade G from DRDO, Dr Vijay Patel (a part of team designed Tejas – first indigenous fighter plane) was in town and could spare a day to visit our schools. We got children from Talyachapada and Kasapada in one school where Dr Vijay Patel shared videos of fighter planes and how simple concept are used in implementing probably most complex designs. Kids enjoyed the session and fondly and proudly remember meeting with the humble personality like him.Dr Vijay himself has done his primary education from a tribal area in Dhadgaon (in Shahada Taluka of Nandurbar district) and therefore can definitely be a role model for children from our schools.
While our primary school children are young (up to the age of 11-12 yrs), there are children in Dadade Ashram Shala (a school which we support), have children up to the age of 18 yrs. We also visited Dadade school where children from 8-12th got to attend session by Dr Vijay Patel. He shared additional presentation along with videos. His work, his knowledge, his background (from where he manged to reach to this level), etc made a strong mark on these grown up kids. With this inspiration, they took his autographs and also pictures with him.
We at Suhrid Foundation thank Dr Patel for his time to our children. His every minute spent with kids was valuable and would go a long way.
