Deepam – Light a child’s life


  • The greatest gift we can give to any child is education especially when it is deprived of it or if they are blissfully unaware.
  • Went to Deepam  last Sunday, an initiative to teach less privileged kids.
  • It was an eye opener, for i have been gravely overestimating children at school  based on those i know.
  • I know kids in school who have finished java , c++ courses or seek regarding robotics for their science projects
  • Deepam happens in a place near besant nagar to under privileged kids. They are taught MS word and bribed lots in cakes, chocolates etc for doing well. It happens here
  • View Larger Map

  • Really enjoyed teaching MS word and bringing Rajini, Ajith, Vijay to the make them understand.
  • It was fun to hear about their dreams 😉
  • I am wondering what needs to be done to kids in villages we never heard of.
  • i often dream of educational revolution where in, Govt schools are like IITs and students have to write entrance exam / statement of purpose to enter govt schools and  probability of admissions is  inversely proporstional  to finantial background. Thats the way for brighter future and development 🙂
