DADA KARANDE

I used to see the Aarogyadoot vehicle when I was in seventh standard. The teacher accompanying the vehicle used to narrate different stories and used to teach children like us. We started knowing and learning different things which were noticed by our school teacher. Once he called me and my friend Samadhan to the office. We were obviously scared.

However we were pleasantly surprised when he told us to visit Sangola's Mukta Vidya Kendra (Open Education Centre) every Sunday. We readily said “yes”.

Awatade sir accompanied us to Sangola on the first Sunday.We got introduced to all the participants and we were able to communicate freely. It was fun learning at this place and we used to eagerly wait for the Sundays to come down to Sangola. Shelke

sir was very kind to us and we had a huge sigh of relief when he told us that he won't beat us !

On the very first Sunday Gita madam taught us how to make greeting cards. On the next Sunday Sampada madam developed our skill in making files. On the subsequent Sundays we participated in learning skills like Personality development, Nursery plantation, Operating computers, making Rakhis, Drawing, Essay – writing, Public Speaking, Music, making Paper - lantern etc. Competitions were also held wherein we all participated. On one of the Sundays they showed us the C.D. from which we came to know about Mata Balak Utkarsha Pratishthan.Thereafter a four day residential Camp was conducted for us in Sangola College. Students from 24 tehsils participated in this camp. We played many games there and our Open Education Centre got the first prize in “Ring Kho- Kho”.

Learning in Mukta Vidya Kendra was a very valuable experience for me as I learned many new and interesting things.
