From the Editor’s Desk

Hari Om Friend,


The response to the Mega Blood donation camp held on 17th April 2016 was truly overwhelming, making the event a grand success. A total of 5404 units of blood were collected in a single day. The Mega camp which was first started in 1999 with Sadguru Aniruddha Bapu’s vision and inspiration crossed the cumulative collection mark of 50000 units on 17th April 2016 for the annually held Mega Blood donation camp.

Exams are over and its vacation time, which means fun and frolic for children. Childhood is considered to be the best period to hone the talent of children. This issue features information on ‘Dhangad Dhinga Shibir’ which is being organized every year since the year 1996 for children in the age group of 9 to 12 years.

Sunderkand Pathan Utsav

Date: From 17th May 2016 to 21st May 2016

Venue: Shree Harigurugram, IES, New English School, Govt. Colony, Bandra East

Alpha to Omega Newsletter - May 2016

As announced by Sadguru Aniruddha Bapu during “Pitruvachan”, Sunderkand Pathan was held at Shree Harigurugram from 17th May to 21st May 2016. The pathan began on the first day after the “Sthapana” ceremony as per vedic rites. The main stage was bedecked with flowers and bore a majestic look with the idols of Ram Panchayatan and the large photo of Lord Hanuman. Also placed on the stage was the idol of Lord Hanuman carved out of stone by Param Poojya Bapu Himself. 27 Purohits were invited for this holy pathan. They recited the Sunderkand in a variety of melodious tunes. The programme was attended by a large number of Shraddhavans who turned up not only from Mumbai but even from far off places of Maharashtra and outside Maharashtra. A few of them had even come from abroad specially to be a part of this event. Many of the Shraddhavans even took a break from their work in order to participate in this utsav. Those Shraddhavans who, for some reason, could not be a part of the programme, had reason to rejoice as the final session of last two days was streamed live from Aniruddha T.V. On each of the five days the pathan ended with Bhajan and Aarti.

Dhangad Dhinga Shibir

The ‘Dhangad Dhinga Shibir’ is conducted under the aegis of Shri Sai Samarth Vidnyan Prabodhini, and is exclusively for the children in the age group of 9 to 12 years.

It has been seen that many a time children spend their vacations watching television, video games, movies, etc. which actually amounts to waste of time. During school days they are tied up in the daily routine of school, classes, tuition etc., as a result of which their skills and talent remain unexplored. The need was, therefore, felt for having a proactive alternative that would wean children away from television, videogames, and computer and help them to discover their latent talent. Children have a great capacity to absorb new ideas and skill sets that are appropriate for their age. What they miss out at this age is very difficult for them to pick up once they grow older.

Dhangad Dhinga Shibir is being conducted as a CHILDREN DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME and has been designed in a manner wherein hidden qualities of the children are explored, by use of such means as play way methods, spiritual awakening, mental exercises, sporting activities, etc..

The Dhangad Dhinga Shibir is a 15 day course held during the summer vacations.

The selection of children starts a month before the commencement of the shibir. Nearly 1000 applications are screened and about 150 children are selected. The fee of the shibir is minimal so that children from all strata of the society can take the benefit of the shibir.

The shibir includes various indoor and outdoor activities, brain storming sessions, memory and audio visual games.

The spiritual component of the shibir comprises of daily chanting of Maruti Stotra and Ram Raksha Stotra. During the shibir the children start loving the recitations of the stotras and somewhere this gets rooted in their mind and effortlessly becomes part of their daily routine.

Much thought is given to the importance of a wholesome and balanced diet. Therefore, during the shibir the children are provided with nutritious, delicious and wholesome food.

Medical facilities are also provided throughout the shibir to all the children.

The special attraction of the shibir is the ‘chocolate handi’ wherein the children form a human pyramid and break the handi; very similar to that performed during Krishna Janmashtami celebrations. Even girl participants proactively take part in the activity.

The shibir concludes with a one day picnic which is the icing on the cake for them and what is possibly the most memorable day of their lives.

OVERVIEW:

Scores of parents have come forward and vouched for the benefits of the shibir as they have noticed a sea of change in their wards. The most shining example has been of Ms. Komal Satose, Dhangad Dhinga (Batch – 2004). She scored 97% in the 2010 SSC board exams. She attributed her success to the daily chanting of Hanuman Chalisa, reading a page from Srimad Purushartha Grantharaj, Matruvatsalya Vindanam and Bhagwad Geeta. There are many such children who have become outstanding stars of Dhangad Dhinga.

The sole purpose of organizing the Dhangad Dhinga Shibir is to inculcate the right values and a sense of discipline in them and to also give them a platform to express themselves without any inhibitions and thereby discover any latent talent that they might have. Needless to say, the children of today need to be nurtured in a manner that going forward they become the strong pillars of our society and country.
