From the desk of CEO, Pune Cantonment Board We appreciate the work that is being conducted by Colorss Foundation in the schools of Pune Cantonment Board. Their unique projects work on unconscious learning; they use different methods like computer technology, martial arts with a blend of creative arts, video-tutorials and workshops. The E-zine is a great concept which allows the children to explore their capabilities and enhance their creative writing. The girls in our schools who are engaged in martial arts training have become more confident about themselves. Their workshops for both children and teachers make it a holistic program for the entire school. What is education? What is it that we expect from the school where our children study? For me, education is intelligence plus character. Intelligence is what each of us is born with and all children develop a belief about their own intelligence. A new study shows that if you teach students that their intelligence can grow and increase, the children do better in school. There are some students who keep questioning their intelligence and there are others who always believe that intelligence is something that can be developed all through their life and you can keep mastering things in life. The students, who had a growth mindset, did well in their studies. Hence the school, the teachers and even parents have a responsibility of not stunting the intelligence of their children and always encouraging them to explore new things. Teaching children that they are in charge of their own intellectual growth motivates a child to work hard. However, in the pursuit of increasing the intelligence of our children the main emphasis is on earning a living and a luxurious life at that and not on living a life well. The emphasis is on lifestyle rather than life itself. This is where character comes in. Abraham Lincoln said that ‘all men can stand adversity but if you want to test a man’s character give him power’. Character is doing the right thing even when one knows that nobody is looking. Character is willing to face the music even when one knows that it may be unpleasant. Best Wishes, Mrs. Rachel Koshy CEO Pune Cantonment Board

From the headmistress desk… The Dr. Ambedkar Memorial High School in Solapur Bazaar, Pune is around 52 years old. We have approximately 450 students in the 5th to 10th grades. The students of this school come from a socially deprived background and face many kinds of hardships. In June 2011, in affiliation with the Technical Board, Pune we began technical education for our 8th grade students. We are thankful to Mrs Rachel Koshy, the CEO of Pune Cantonment Board for suggesting a partnership with Colorss Foundation. Colorss are helping the students to develop self-confidence, self-protection and helping to make our students responsible citizens alongside their school-studies. Their unique project of teaching girls marital and creative arts, focusing on making them physically and mentally strong, has achieved notable changes in these students. Through various mediums such as karate, drawing, singing, creative-writing, computer-education, videotutorials on English and Science subjects, brain-stimulation games and conducting teacher-training workshops they are making the foundation strong. Colorss is helping holistic development of students and teachers ‘free of charge.’ Hearty thanks for their dedication towards achieving this goal of all-round development of our school. Best wishes, Mrs. Anita Salunke M.A Bed.

Importance of Balance diet

If children made the rule...

We get minerals and vitamins from green vegetables. We should have these green vegetables in our daily diet. Chicken should be eaten once in a month. Fish is nutritious and an essential diet. We should have rice, dal, bhakri, vegetables in our everyday diet. We need to drink 1 ñ 1.5 lt of water every day. Fruits should be included in diet plan. One should go for walk after having meals. Milk, carrot, honey, sprouts are essential nutrients. We should have plenty of water after meals, should eat food on time to become healthy and strong. Balance diet is important to live life with full energy and happiness.

I like driving, it gives me happiness. I listen to song while driving. I like open spaces for driving. I love to pick-up people on my way so that they also talk with me. While driving I can see different places, birds and animals. I get information about different countries and English language when I drive with foreigners. This has helped my English skills too. Many people donít like driving; they think that itís dangerous. We should be conscious while driving to avoid accidents. I learnt the art of driving from my uncle because he is a driver. I have other hobbies like playing cricket, painting, watching TV, etc.

Nikita Kota 10th A

If children make rules, everyone will become lazy. They will not study, they will misbehave and Indiaís future will be in dark. Rules are necessary for everyone and all should be abide by good rules; however we children have only one wish that elders should understand us.

We eat different types of food, that food is converted into digested food. We should not eat junk food. Also we should avoid uncovered food such as samosa, vada-pav, papad, bhaji and oily eatables. Non-vegetarian people should eat in limit and proportion. Everyone should clean hands before having any type of food. Once should eat food in proportion.

Sonam Gaikwad 10th A

Will lessen the burden of studies on children and will provide them more time for playing, watching TV and will provide all privileges to girls. Age for voting will be ten years. School timings will be in the afternoon so that children should sleep properly in the morning.

Meenakshi Pralhad Mahipal - 8th A

We will give entry to young and energetic people in Indian politics. Necessary actions would be taken on those who do not follow traffic rules and fundamental duties for the society. Punish corrupt people to stop corruption.

Quantity of a personís diet depends on the type of work he does. Balance diet is needed if we want to be fit and healthy. We need food to have balance diet.

Megha Ram Kadu - 10th A

If children made rules, first we will change school rules. There will be only two exams in a year; there will be two periods of physical education. And children will choose their own subject such as music, dancing, beauty parlors for their graduation. If a teacher is not good at teaching, children will have right to withdraw him/her.

On every Sunday I drive my friends. We enjoy a lot, for me driving also gives me hand-exercise.

Retired Colonel Sanjay Shrotri, Regiment of Artillery Nominated Member Pune Cantonment Board

Retired Colonel Sanjay Shrotri, Retired Regiment of Artillery is the nominated member from Pune Cantonment Board. When asked his opinion on what would be the most important areas that need to focused on among the children studying in PCB schools, he told us, “PCB is required to provide “Primary Education “to all children in Cantonment Board Areas. With Right to Education (RTE) Act coming into force, it is a duty of PCB to provide a quality education to all children. Besides their mother tongue which in Pune is mostly Marathi, PCB needs to introduce English medium and CBSE syllabus. PCB has already taken steps to start English medium and CBSE syllabus in a phased manner.” Stressing on the importance of technology in education as well as the importance of understanding of the English language, Colonel Shrotri told us, “Technical education will be started in one of the schools and equipment required for such classes is being procured soon. At primary level mother tongue based education is more effective. Since children come from poor background, only few students will be selected for English medium classes.” He advised the families to avoid letting their children drop out pf schools, stressing on the importance of school education. To encourage them he informed, “One awesome incentive of not leaving shcool is the mid day meals being provided to children. Second incentive should be grade based marking and NO failures till class VIII. PCB also provides books, school bags free of cost. Rain coats/umbrellas can also be provided.” He encouraged NGOs to start novel schemes to make their life more interesting. When asked about his views on our project Colors of Life, he said, “Colors of Life is truly helping in searching hidden talents of students who are from poor classes of our society. Children find helping hands and get assured that privileged classes do care for them.”

Conversation witn my fairy

I was sitting in the porch of my house and thinking about fairy. Suddenly a fairy with long silky hair and attractive face came to me. I had never thought that such a beautiful moment will come in my life. I was stunned Fairy asked me my name and she told me her name is ëSonparií. She asked me what I like, I told I like wandering. She took me to sky with her magic wand; I was amazed by the beauty of sky. She made me friends with leaves, flowers, woods, birds, animals and greenery. We all played a lot. I hear songs of the birds, beauty of flowers. I was very happy all these memories will be always there in my heard. Many a times I think that it was a beautiful unforgettable dream? But I know it was a truth. Fairy fulfilled my wishes. Now we are good friends, she is not only in my imagination but also with me in my real life.

Pollution is harmful for all of us, it has destroyed natural habitats. We should follow all rules to reduce pollution. Wet and dry garbage should be disposed differently and separately. We should use public vehicles to reduce pollution.

Prashant Tayade - 9th A

Tree plantation and garbage management is necessary to avoid water pollution. Waste from industries should be properly disposed. We should keep the surroundings and our home clean to avoid disease and infections.

We get worldwide information because of Television. Children love watching TV but it can be harmful for eyes if watched for a long time. Elders watch news and serials, itís a great source of entertainment. If children watch TV for long time they can fail in exams and then they commit suicide. We can watch ëLIVEí cricket on TV, can get information about diseases. Younger children like carton. Loud volume of TV can cause sound pollution and can disturb neighbor and it can affect our relations with them.

Rahul Rathod - 9th A

Tree plantation is a good measure to reduce pollution. The main reason for pollution is human being. Industries and vehicles produce pollution. Vehicles add to air pollution and toxic substances from industries causes water pollution. Pollution causes the depletion of ozone layer.

Kajal Rokade - 10th A

I like fairy tales from my childhood. She is a beautiful princess; she has attractive wings and beautiful eyes. She fulfills the wishes of children. I like her clothes and her deeds.

We get more information from TV than newspaper. TV is a good source as well as a bad source. We can watch VCDís on TV. Marriage ceremonies, photographs can also be seen on TV.

Who is a good neighbor? ‘During obstacles that’s there

MEd. Director of Shemo (USA) Shenmo is an educational organization on enrichment learning. Our after-school programs include Mental Math, Creative Arts and so on. As the director of Shenmo (USA), I am really impressed by what Colorss Foundation is doing for kids with special needs; especially I am touched by the improvement of these students from the project named ‘Colorss of Life’. I always ask myself ‘How are they able to make it? They must have done the efforts which a lot of people are not able to do!!!’ But I have to say: Yes, they can! Every time when I read the wonderful E-magazine produced by these brave students from the project of Colorss of Life, I wish more students could get involved in this useful project. It is not only a project which adds colors to these students’ lives but also a project that adds hope to their future and the communities. It does require a lot of efforts from different people. The sad fact is that we are only able to offer very limited support since we are an overseas organization. However, it will not weaken our determination to add more colors to more people’s lives because we share the same planet and are building the changing world. We do hope you could also join us and offer more support to Colorss Foundation no matter where you are and who you are…..

He always tries not to disturb others; he plays his television on low volume so that others should not get disturbed. He does not quarrel on small matters but tries to solve problems by mutual co-operation. He keeps silence in his home if we have exams. The neighbor who follows neighborhood is a good neighbor. Neighbors should help each other and live peacefully. They share sweets and foods on the occasion of festivals. If two neighbors behave in good manner others neighbor also behave in the same. They should share good habits and live happily.

We must understand this world will be different if we contribute more together!

A good neighbor is someone who follows norms and values and helps us in difficulties. If we are in trouble he tries to solve it. He is there with us in our good and bad times. The neighbor who can do all these is a good neighbor.

My Favourite Person

Some people get psychologically disturbed due to fear. Such people are taken to ‘baba’s’; family members think that he/she is possessed by ghost. Instead of taking him/her to hospital they take him/her to ‘baba’s’. These baba’s take money. All this is superstition. People ill snakes, but snakes and frog are friend of farmer. Snake do not harm us if we do not harm it. People should follow following few suggestions:• People should carry a long stick and boots while going in jungles

• They should wear caps Now we will talk about Cat. Everyone gets scared by black cat. However we should not get afraid. I would like to tell everyone that don’t get scared of darkness, don’t kill innocent wild animals. I would stop here. Thank You

Eduicoloring Life – Reaching the Unreached Sai Padma Murthy Chief Executive/ trustee, Lions Family Welfare Planning Trust India Project coordination: Spread International

Hi Friends of Colors of life, Greetings from Sai Padma, Andhra Pradesh, India. Colorss of life- Reaching the Unreached: Colorss of life, the name itself gives a lot of promise for colorful future for children. With the reach of technology, there is so much good that can be done with this project, making the computers and media available to disadvantaged and marginalized sections of people. But I feel appropriate measures regarding the methodology and effect of technology in overall personality development need to be assessed. In that I feel Colorss Foundation is doing a wonderful job by assessing their emotional, psychological, social and group behavior. Since some time, I have been watching the fascinated progress of Colorss Foundation with their open ideas and uniqueness in reaching out to the disadvantaged. It’s indeed a pleasure writing for Colorss E-zine. To introduce myself, I am a human being; who has lived, educated and worked in rural/ tribal areas all my life, and is still working for them despite being on a wheelchair. I am from the disadvantaged, of the disadvantaged and by the disadvantaged. Well...as per Anand’s advice I wish to categorize my article in some most important aspects of education to the disadvantaged groups. Access to Education: It’s a huge question that whether education is easily accessible or available to poor families. India is a huge country with endless hurdles and also possibilities. Further, primary education is everyone’s domain. We have worked in 200 villages in 5 mandals of a poorest of the poor district of Andhra Pradesh. I wish to share with you my thoughts based on my experiences in working and traveling in 200 villages, and 5 tribal hamlets which are inaccessible like the real education to the needy. The following points are pivotal from my learnings : • Access to education if you look in terms of number of schools, semi or fully structured, either private or government funded, we have many in number. • But access to quality education is really less. • Certain benefits like activity based learning and other novel methods of education are still out of reach for disadvantaged sections. • The efforts like child-labor schools and bridge schools are failing to address the real problem of learning; they concentrate more on enrolling than real learning. • The quality of teachers, teaching in rural areas is an important factor to be considered. • The socio-cultural setting of disadvantaged section needs to be understood. How best

Name of my favorite teacher is Mrs. Kulkarni Madam. She is not only my favourite but we also respect her a lot, she is also the favorite of all my classmates. Wherever I meet my friends remind me of her. She is very kind at her heart. Sometimes when I remember her impressive personality I feel fear. I have not seen her wearing any fashionable clothes. She used to teach us mathematics and science. Both these subjects were very tough and we used to hate these subjects, but madam taught these subjects in such a way that, these boring subjects became our favourite. Afterwards we never found these subjects boring and fearful. She used to teach us science by giving examples from day to day life, for example ñ churning is necessary to convert sour curd to sweet. What are bacteria? How to get electricity by using simple wire? While teaching mathís she used to guide us on how to solve difficult problems and how to memorize formulas! Very few days are left of our 10th grade, sometimes I think; will we be able to meet our madam again? We donít know whether we will meet such great teacher again. But I really feel from the bottom of my heart that we are lucky to have Mrs Kulkarni as our teacher.

Atul Khandagale - 10th B

Fear is a great trouble in human’s life. Many people die because of fear and shock. To avoid this obstacle of fear nowadays electricity generation is done. My biggest fear is the fear of darkness. I also feel fear for wild animal’s i.e snake, tiger, wolf, elephant etc. We should keep distance from these wild animals but should not kill them. Their hunters should be punished.

My biggest fear

and in what way we can motivate parents to put their children in school and keep sending them sustainable is a great factor. • In tribal hamlets, physical accesses to schools are really a problem. Any weather calamity, children can’t attend to school. Focus Areas in Educating Disadvantaged: • Empowering the teachers • Essential training methodology • Effective supervision and monitoring • Activity based learning has to be introduced at primary, middle and senior school levels • The availability of proper material in vernacular languages. (Ex. In order to introduce the activities, we had to write activities book in telugu, later it was adopted with slight changes by Sarva Siksha Abhiyaan ) • More involvement of local committees and members in studies. • Extracurricular activities have taken complete back seat in rural schools. They need to be introduced. •3R’s- Reading, Writing, Arithmetic skills in children need to be properly assessed. • No efforts were being made to really understand the psycho-social setting of disadvantaged families. ( ex. When we are dealing with children from HIV affected families, the family perceptions and value-set made all the difference in a child performance. There was recorded a high drop-out rate due to stigma and discrimination.) •Parental financial burdens and cultural barriers • Involvement of colleges, volunteers, youth and others in primary education and activities. • Proper career counseling has to be given for the disadvantaged sections at an early age/stage. Technology vis-à-vis Education: • Trained personnel is lacking in technology related projects/programs • The various options and other computer and internet related issues were not made aware, student groups as a part of their project works can really make a big difference here. • Different career prospects of technology are yet to be understood by disadvantaged children. For ex. Recycling technology, renewable energy resources, mobile/ communication technology. • Computer literate youth from villages should participate more in the on-going activities of school education especially technology reach for the unreached. Parents and School Drop-outs: This is the most sensitive topic of all these. To tackle the parents who doesn’t want their child in school without any reason whatsoever. But in this, some things are changing for better. No parent of today wants to take out their child from schools. But, their financial, cultural, emotional, physical barrier needs to be understood. We give the following and series of advices to parents. In convincing parents, we found the role of self-help groups of woman is very valuable. The social and peer pressure they put on parents, made two of our girls return to school. Convincing parents of male child is easier than female child . The obvious reason being the prioritization of male education. The oft repeated advice I give to parents- “don’t stop the education of your child. It’s the best insurance/ retirement package you have ever subscribed to!” You can color your life- when you know how to do it! Thanks for the opportunity!

Teacher Training workshop We had conducted a series of teacher-training workshops in order to better understand the problems that teachers and the children they teach face in their daily lives. The workshops aimed to provide teachers with a background in how to help students and parents get the best out of their education, as well as provide support in how to handle the stress that sometimes comes with teaching. The first workshop was conducted on 4th July 2011 and the second one was on 27th July 2011 at Dr. Ambedkar Memorial School, Pune Cantonment Board. The workshops divided participating teachers into groups of 6 or 7, where they were free to discuss some of the frustrations and problems they encountered in their teaching careers. Many brought up issues with children not completing homework and not paying attention in class. Additionally, they felt that rowdy children disturbed the class as a whole, and many students who came from a background of abuse and violence brought such behaviors with them into the classroom. Furthermore, teachers agreed that there was a general attitude of pride in misbehaving and disrespect and ingratitude towards the teacher and the teaching facilities. The groups then discussed possible solutions to these problems. They suggested that there should be more discipline in classes, and that their students should be taught the value of a free education. The teachers also agreed that training teachers in how to control difficult children and in how to better motivate children in class would be helpful. 27th July 2011: As mentioned by the teachers we conducted workshops on how to identify a naughty child and children who fall under ADHD, ADD, Slow learners and learning disability. The workshop was divided in a group of 6 or 7 teachers. Where they were free to discuss their problems on dealing with specific issues of a child, they encountered while teaching. As per their requirements on 27th July 2011 one more teachers training program was conducted. The aim of this program was to brief teachers regarding symptoms and causes of “naughty children’, “Attention Deficit Hyperactive Children”,” Dyslexia” and “Gifted Children”. Few techniques were shown to teachers about working strategies in class room aids. The motto was to empower teachers to separate reluctant learners and slow learners. Many teachers were Aided from the class room strategies and planning of lessons for naughty children. Few teachers were adamant on using strategies in class due to absenteeism, irresponsive behavior in class and lack of interest in studies. The workshop helped them to clearly understand these psychological problems. They were also trained on how to deal with these issues. We also suggested them to change their approach and working style in the classroom. The general reception of the workshop was good – some teachers were pessimistic and reluctant to learn new teaching methods, while some were eager to welcome new ideas and accepted that they are making mistakes. This workshop helped them to open-up and clear their basics. The general reception of the workshop was mixed – some teachers were pessimistic and reluctant to learn new teaching methods, while some were eager to welcome new ideas.

Teacher Training Program Teacher training program was really helpful for reducing stress of a teacher. It was a guideline for a teacher how to manage his duty-work successfully. The teacher should keep positive attitude towards students. Teachers told their problems while they have to face in their day-to-day duties. Teachers should know the psychology of a child. In this programme Colorss guided us how to make students ‘active’ in learning process and how to motivate them by various ways, how to handle mischievous, naught and problematic students? Teacher should try to understand and solve their home-problems as well.. He/she should keep contact with their parents, love them and encourage them for their good behavior. Motivate them for good things they have done by praising them or in a form of small gift. In short this programme was a successful effort to increase an active and positive part of a teacher in teachinglearning process. It helped them to accept challenges and over by various ways.

Exclusive Interview with Mrs. Salma Prabhu

Mrs Salma Prabhu , who has been a founder panel member to setup the first PGDM( Post Graduate Diploma in Management) in Guidance & Counseling at SIES (South Indian Education Societies) Mumbai. She is presently associated with Tata Institute of Social Sciences (Mumbai) for their M.A. in counseling programme and also the Director of ACEPL. Q-What are your views about ‘How child disability is handled and looked upon in India by the society’? A- It is a natural tendency of any normal human being to empathize with the disabled. They the disabled need special care and attention schools and centers and especially during the course of puberty when they are growing up because at the end of the day they are just like any other normal child while growing up. Q- According to you ‘what are the remedies and ways to increase acceptance in the society’? A- Vocational involvement is needed for the increase in career prospects. But how far will they be able to sustain by making diyas, paper bags, operating computers and etc. For them formal education as we take like B.com or BA they have to enroll themselves to IGNOU or NIOS whereas they do have capability and they can be a part of the formal education just that they need a bit of extra care taken by the universities like in the form of rules and regulations and relaxation in marking and etc. Yes technology does help them to be more efficient and to sustain. Q- What do you think of ‘Colors of life’ project? A-The project “COLORS OF LIFE” does provide a platform to these kids by offering them the self esteem and an identity of their own. Voicing themselves to the world establishing the fact of “MY IDENTITY” and very important their say. Q -According to you ‘what are the remedies and ways to increase acceptance in the society’? A- There is ways will be certain bend of mind to distinguish but let us work the other way round of making the disabled kids understand and digest the fact the way they are as quoted by Salma mam “let them accept themselves” all we need to do encourage their self esteem and confidence. As said by madam rather than making the society accept them which would take up a lot of years instead we make the disabled understand about themselves which is more of a definite process and a very effective one. Instead of the reaching the masses we deal with the one living with it. Q- What do you think of the generation Y? A- Today’s youth is really open-minded and due to the technology there is vast pool of knowledge and exposure available to them. All they need is proper mentoring which if not provided them the generation Y will be lost completely.
