Savere savere...yaaron se milke ban than ke nikle hum.. badal sa garje hum, sawan sa barse hum.. suraj sa chamke hum... school chale hum.. School chale hum.. The memories of getting up early in the morning to catch the School bus, the innocent chitchat with friends, the lush-green playgrounds and the feeling of freedom with the ringing of the School bell; The first stroll through Lala Bhagwan Das Memorial Deepalaya School (LBDMDS) brings out that very feeling of dÃ©jÃ vu.
Situated in the village of Titron in Uttar Pradesh, this School caters to 164 children providing them with elementary education. Coming from a rural background, the students are ecstatic to hold a pencil over a sickle! The increasing attendance percentage is a proof that the young ones of the School want to break through the rusted chains of anti-progressive customs and touch the horizons of success through the ladder of education.
However, what unfolds is a tale of initiation, courage and persistence of Deepalaya with the partnership of B.M. Memorial Trust that has been able to take the shape of an optimistic future for the children of the School. The organization with its noble cause and door to door efforts of motivating the parents has been able to overcome the barriers of caste and class. A level of sensitization has germinated some teachers to stand up for the cause and be a part of the School.
Working on Deepalayaâ€™s child- centric approach, the School is proving to be a launch pad of dreams for the saplings of Titron, not only in academics but also in bringing out their latent talents.
