Voting is Must

All the parties are making rust
Tries to bad tricks to get the vote They give you clothes... They give you alcohol... They give you money too... And they also give you their hand on your head Promising you to develop the state Until you give them vote But once the election is finished And they have won They get lost... In corruption, politics and many more But then also I say... Voting is must And if they are playing tricks on you Then why don’t you do the same on them If they are doing corruption Then not you... If they are politically strong Then you are the one making them do so If they are misusing your vote then Why you are not taking steps Again do the voting and change the party Whom are sending to control your state Is he/she is able to control themselves By decreasing the rates of what you need daily No, then its time to change them Go for voting again Again vote for other And think yourself as the most powerful man/woman That’s why I say that voting is must...

Udayan Care's Work Educating Females

Despite the advances made in education in India over the past decade, many of the benefits are still yet to be felt by girls and women, particularly those from rural and disadvantaged areas. Statistics continue to show that females are less likely to attend school, are less likely to finish school and are less likely to attend and graduate from university. Twenty per cent of Indian children still do not go to school, the majority of which are girls, and the number of illiterate women still outweighs the number of men (UNICEF India). In a country were education is often a key stepping stone on the path to a better life these trends are preventing Indian girls and women from fulfilling their potential. As women are often the bedrock of families denying them education can have a knock-on effect which limits the quality of life for their family and their children.
Udayan Care has recognised this problem in India and has founded the Udayan Shalini Fellowships, which are designed to provide …

Udayan Care Welcomes UK Interns

Five students from universities across the UK are completing a five day internship at Udayan Care. We are a part of the UKIERI Study India Programme and have come to India to learn about its culture, economy and future. On our first day we were given an introduction to Udayan Care and were struck by the number of great projects they are running which are changing the lives of young people across India. According to UNICEF, there are currently 31 million orphaned children across the country and this problem is made worse by a shortage of orphanages and very low adoption rates. This is why the work done at Udayan Care is so important because it gives children an education and a future where otherwise they may live in poverty. At the end of our first day we were taken to visit one of Udayan Care’s projects in Delhi. The Udayan Ghars project provides a safe and loving environment for children aged 6 upwards who have either lost their parents or whose families are unable to take care of the…

A Long Forgotten Lesson of Happiness

Just a few days back I had a life changing experience. An experience that taught me a lesson long forgotten, a lesson given to me by a child, a lesson that reminded me the joy of giving and sharing.
Engrossed in the zeal of attaining more, be it power, wealth or fame we tend to forget that in the process we are just hoarding everything and the irony is we don’t even have time to enjoy or relish what we have attained.
Am sure everyone was told at least once when they were young that happiness is increased when it is shared, but honestly when was the last time we shared something good, like praise, achievement or a present? Am not including pain and sorrows because that comes naturally to us – the adults, the mature ones.
Only a week back I managed to take out some time from my hectic life to visit a Children’s Ghar which was literally like our own homes and spend some time with the beautiful young children. While I was admiring the well kept and tidy rooms of the children – which were…
