Bye Bye 2008. Welcome 2009.

Hello All,

It is just been 2 hours that we entered in to a new year 2009. So, let me wish you all happy and prosperous new year.

Just because we entered in to 2009, we can not ignore the achievements and experiences in 2008. 2008 is been pretty good with me and it gave me much of exposure to lot of things personally and professionally. I would love to thank each and every person that is been so kind to help me grow my character.

2008 started a bit sad for me because of the unexpected performance rating in my profession. The same led me to go to depression for quite some time because of which I  lost the interest almost on every thing during this time. I then started slowly coming out of that mood by involving myself in involving myself in different team related activities. I involved much better in Government Boys Home Activities in 2008 and I hope to improve better in the coming years. Apart of this, I got a better chance to improve my leadership skills by involving in some of the project related activities.

The trek to Nagalapuram is one of the highlights in 2008. I still remember the moment when I was standing on those hills enjoying the fresh/cool breeze from the forest. There are few other outings along with my colleagues which I enjoyed well in 2008. On top of all these things, the important thing in 2008 is that my sister’s marriage got fixed with a very good groom. I hope/wish her married life will go smoothly and happily.

One more important thing to talk in 2008 is my relation with a lovely traditional telugu family that stays in Chennai. I met my 10th classmate’s family here at Chennai in 2007. Starting that time, I became very much close to the two chubby cute twin kids of that family, who literally treat me as a part of thier family. They used to call me frequently and make me smile with their chubby talks.

With this note, I would like to take a break in this first post in 2009.

ONCE AGAIN. I WISH YOU ALL HAPPY NEW YEAR 2009.

ENJOY THE DAY.

Cheers,

Durga Prasad

Srinivasan Makes it to Kuppam.

Dear All,

Here come’s one more success story of a kid’s relocation. This is all about  a kid named “Srinivasan” of kupppam that I have recently relocated.

The kid was studying 8th standard in an English medium school of kuppam. A person took him out of his home telling him that he will show him a movie shooting in Goa. The kid being betrayed  by him came along with him. And as usual he left the kid some where in some unexpected situations.

This kid’s relocation was not at all a tough job. All I have done is that i spoke to him for around 10Min. That is it. He has given the clear address, his fathers name, mothers name, the school he is studying, and also the phone number of his neighbors. I came to know that his father is Dumb and so, I called the neighbor and spoke to his mother.

Got a very good response from his mother and neighbors. His mother was very happy with this and said that she will be starting to Chennai the next day. I have given her the address of GBH and explained her all other formalities.

Hope to relocate more kids from GBH.

Cheers,

Durga Prasad

Relocated a kid from warangal – being a part of TCS Maitree

Hi all,

I am very excited to write this post as I am able to relocate a mentally retarded kid who is unfortunately been separated from his parents before 8 months.

A 12 Year old kid Mohammad Hakeem, son of Mohammad basha (sells old properties) is been separated from warangal during the occasion of his sisters marriage. This kid has some how reached Chennai Central railway station, where the police squad for child care has taken him in to custody.

What should this squad do?

This squad, sitting at Central Railway Station (Chennai), is suppose to search for separated/ran away kids from different places and take them in to custody. These may also have to speak to the kid and fid out where he is from and why he has ran away/been separated. If he is not able to find out any thing from the kid’s answers, they have to send this kid to GBH (Government Boys Home).

What is GBH and what should it do:

GBH is a Government Home for the children who are separated and ran away from their homes. There are two sections in GBH. Section I of GBH should take care of children who are recently been separated from their parents at different places, by providing them temporary shelter, clothing and food. When a kid is in Section I, its means that government is still trying to relocate this particular kid by different means.

Section II of GBH should take care of the kids’ shelter, food, clothing and education. If a kid is at Section II (They call it HOME), it means that Govt is not able to relocate this kid and so is taking care of him.
