On 3rd October 2002, Sadguru Aniruddha Bapu had delivered a soul-stirring and inspiring speech wherein he had conceptualized the 13 Points Programme. This Programme continues to be functional and is running successfully under the guidance of Param Poojya Bapu with thousands of Shraddhavans voluntarily participating in it with full vigour and enthusiasm. Even today after 11 years it holds the same amount of significance and relevance and will continue to do so
On the 6th of May 2010 we Shraddhavaans heard Parampoojya Bapu speak about the concept of ‘The Ramrajya 2025’. This discourse included valuable information about a number of topics. One of these important topics was ‘Learning to speak fluent English’. Bapu had said, “As of today, most business in the world transacts in English. The mother-tongue ought to be a matter of pride and that goes without saying. But the fact remains that to achieve one’s personal progress improving one’s English is now a necessity. If we wish to survive in the competitive world, we just have to be fluent in English. And so with this very intention we are creating ‘The Aniruddha’s Institute of Language and Linguistics’. Bapu further said, “Most people tend to think in their mother-tongue before they speak in English. That is not right. It only creates a breach between the thought and its expression. This breach hampers the flow, the fluency of the language. Language must flow, fluency is important.”
Also, Bapu had declared that ‘Sou. Swapnagandhaveera Aniruddhasinh Joshi’ (our dear Nandai) would be the chief, the solely and wholly responsible chief of this institute. We are all aware that for the last so many years Nandai has been conducting the ‘Atmabal Classes for women’ of which ‘learning the English language’ has been an important aspect. Some of the women who enroll for these classes know not a single word of English. However, in a mere six months these very women learn to speak and write enough to enable everyday interaction. Some of these even participate and with confidence, in the English skits presented as part of the programme held at the end of the course.
In keeping with this very purpose, books that aid to learn English, authored by Nandai Herself will soon be published in the form of sets. These books will open up a simple and useful path for all Shraddhavaans who wish to learn English. Reading and using these books is going to be as much a unique and joyful experience as will be looking at them. This will prove an important stride indeed, in the journey towards the Ramrajya, the Ramrajya that is Bapu’s vision for us.
