MANOJ

MANOJ

I am Manoj  17 years old.  I belong to a dysfunctional Paniya family.  My father passed away when I was young and I was deserted by my mother who married another man was taken care of by my old aunt who was least aware of education.  The SSA team identified me as a dropout and admitted me to the RSTC at Ambalamoola with compulsion.  First my life at the RSTC was so bitter but later I got used to it and enjoyed learning.  I would like to add to my testimonial that I am partially blind 75% and had regular medical check-up at the centre and I am provided with spectacles but still find it difficult to read and write clearly.  After vigorous coaching I was mainstreamed to the GHSS Ambalamoola (33110400504) and now going to appear for my X Std Board Exam. I have applied for scribe and wish to get good marks and further continue my studies and come up as an educated Paniya tribal youngster.

Shivani Rai

Shivani Rai

Shivani Rai, is the daughter of Mr. Sankar Rai, an inhabitant of Bhojo Gaon Panchayat under Sonari Block. Physically the child is fine but has problems while communicating. She is attending the  day care centre from 2013 onwards from the age of 5 yrs.

After interaction with her father, he was advised to consult a psychologist as soon as possible. After a couple of months, her father informed us that the Doctor diagnosed her with intellectual disability. Due to financial problem, it was not possible for them to undertake due treatment.

With due intervention of SSA officials, a  treatment plan was made for her. In 1st step, she was enrolled in the nearest LP School, 309 no. Bhojo LPS, and her condition was discussed with the Head Mistress and teaching staff of the school. After the discussion, the IE resource person identified some short term goals like behavior management, classroom behavior, etc. Along with this, a peer group was also createdin the class. All IE personnel of the block were tasked to visit the school for proper guidance of the child both academically and socially.

She was also made to attend the day care centre two days a week, for art and craft training which was organized in 2014-15. Here, the child learnt about colors, painting, and collage as well.

She is participating in all competitions at Block and District level, and has been awarded prize for her efforts.

Hussain Ali

Hussain Ali

Hussain Ali, born on 3rd March 2004 at Basugaon, Kashudola, under Sidli Block, Dist- Chirang, is at present a student Std. V in Kashudola LPS. Of three children, he is the second youngest born. Hussain’s mother during her pregnancy, suffered from jaundice and consequently delivered the child with cerebral palsy. His father belongs to economically weaker section of the society and is burdened with responsibility of looking after his family on very meager means.

Hussain, on account of his cerebral palsy, was deprived of schooling. He was not able to understand instructions. He could not speak. He had poor concentration and eye hand coordination. He also lacked toilet control.

The Block resource person under SSA approached the parents and counseled them to admit Hussain to the Day Care Centre of the block.  Thereafter, at the centre, an intervention plan was prepared and the resource person and physiotherapist commenced imparting various types of training and therapies such as self-help skills, language training, speech therapy, and physiotherapy.

After a few months, upon showing improvement, his parents were convinced to admit him in a school. At that time his developmental milestones were lagging and he needed special teaching skills under the guidance and consistent monitoring of the resource person of SSA.

He can now understand and follow instructions, and there is reasonable improvement in his eye hand co-ordination.He is now learning academic skills. He also participates in various activities at school.

Hussain’s case is demonstrative example of the life changing differences that can be brought about in the lives of these special children by specialized training and support of both family and society. It transforms a person with special needs to lead a normal life with dignity.

राजा बै

यह बात जिला उमरिया विकासखण्ड मानपुर के ग्राम सेमरा के 11 वर्षीय राजा बैगा की है ग्राम सेमरा के दिहाडी मजदूर आनन्द लाल एवं गीता बैगा के एक पुत्री और 3 पुत्रो मे राजा द्वितीय पुत्र है। राजा अपनी बडी बहन और दो छोटे भाईयों से कुछ अलग है। उनका कुछ अलग होना ही उनके जीवन की सबसे बडी कठिनाई सावित हो रहा था। राजा जन्मजात नेत्रहीन है, ईश्वर ने हमारे राजा को इस दुनिया से देखने की दक्षता और सतरंगी दुनिया को महसूस करने की क्षमता से मरहूम रखा है।

वैसे तो समावेशन शिक्षा मे राजा का दाखिला जनपद पंचायत मानपुर के प्राथमिक शाला कुदरा टोला मे करा कर शैक्षिक औपचारिकता निभा ली गई थी, किन्तु ना तो उसके घर मे अथवा विद्यालय मे नेत्रहीन बच्चों को पढाने लायक माहौल था। ऐसे मे राजा की दूरी स्कूल से बढती चली गई। ऐसे मे सर्व शिक्षा अभियान की समावेशन शिक्षा और जनपद शिक्षा केन्द्रो मे मोबाईल स्त्रोत सलाहकारो की नियुक्ति ने राजा के लिए एक नई रोशनी प्रदान की। जनपद शिक्षा केन्द्र मानपुर की एम0आर0सी0 श्रीमती पुष्पलता गुप्ता के सेमरा मे आनन्द लाल बैगा के घर मे भ्रमण के दौरान राजा के बारे मे ज्ञात हुआ, तब श्रीमती गुप्ता ने न केवल राजा के माता-पिता बल्के राजा के विद्यालयों के शिक्षको की भी काउंसलिंग प्रारम्भ की श्रीमती गुप्ता की काउंसलिंग से राजा की बडी बहन ने प्रभावित होकर स्वयं राजा को नियमित विद्यालय ले जाने की ठान ली श्रीमती गुप्ता के इस सतत् काउंसलिंग ने अपना प्रभाव दिखाया और राजा बैगा प्राथमिक सेमरा मे अपकी बडी बहन के साथ नियमित विद्यालय आने लगा।

श्रीमती गुप्ता ने अपनी काउंसलिंग के दौरान राजा बैगा की एक विशेष और विलक्षण क्षमता उसके मधुर कण्ठ और विशिष्ट गायन शैली को भी पहचाना और राजा की इस खूबी को जनपद शिक्षा केन्द्रो के मानपुर और जिला शिक्षा केन्द्र उमरिया को अवगत कराया गया जिला शिक्षा केन्द्र के सहायक परियोजना समन्वयक (आई0ई0डी0 श्री कमलेश पाण्डेय ने विश्व विकलांग दिवस (3.12.2016) को राजा बैगा को मंच मे स्थान देते हुए उसकी प्रतिभा से सभी को परिचित कराया। राजा बैगा ने अपने मधुर कंण्ठ और विशिष्ट गायन शैली से सभी को मंत्र मुग्ध कर दिया।

राजा बैगा की इस प्रतिभा को प्रशंसित करते हुए जिलाधिकारी उमरिया ने 26 जनवरी 2017 के भारत पर्व कार्यक्रम मे विशेष रूप से आमंत्रित कर उसे मंच प्रदान करते हुए पुरस्कृत किए। आज ग्राम सेमरा के राजा बैगा न केवल शाला के नियमित विद्यार्थी है बल्कि उमरिया जिले के राजा बेटा बन चुके है।

मोहम्मद नावेद

मोहम्म

यह कहानी है मोहम्मद नावेद की जिसके माता पिता एवं समाज ने उसकी क्षमता को नही पहचाना और उसे पागल करार दे दिया। इस बच्चें की क्षमता को पहचान कर उसे शिक्षा के साथ ही उसकी अन्य प्रतिभाओं को उभरने का अवसर दिया सर्व शिक्षा अभियान के कार्यकर्ता ने।

हम यह जानते है की निःशक्तता अभिशाप नही है हम यानि की समाज इसे जिस रूप में स्वीकार करेगा वही रूप होगा। प्रियंका नगर, झुग्गीबस्ती कोलार रोड़, भोपाल में एक बालक दुकान में बैठा मिला। मैं दुकान में चाय पीने गया हुआ था चाय पीते-पीते मेंने बालक की ओर देखा जो जमीन पर कुछ लिखने की कोशिश कर रहा था ओैर बार-बार लिखता फिर मिटाता और फिर लिखता, यही प्रक्रिया बार-बार दोहराता। मेरा कोतूहल बढ़ा, मुझे लगा की बच्चा कुछ लिखने की कोशिश कर रहा है| मैं उसके पास गया तो वो हँसने लगा और जोर-जोर से चिल्लाने लगा, लिख लिया, लिख लिया फिर उसने मेरी तरफ देखकर कहा, “मुझे स्कूल जाना है”| इतना सब होने के बाद भी मुझे यह पता नहीं चला की यह बालक निःशक्त है पर जब मैंने उससे बात करने की कोशिश की उसके व्यवहार और उसकी एक्टीविटी से में समझ गया ओर पास बैठे कुछ लोगों से पूछा तो उन लोगो ने बोला की यह बच्चा तो पागल है ऐसे ही घूमता रहता है मैंने उनसे कहा कि आप इस बच्चे का घर बता सकते हैं उन्होंने पास की झुग्गी तरफ इशारा किया कि यही उसका घर है मै तुरंत बच्चे को साथ लेकर उसके घर गया उसके माता पिता मुझे देखकर चौक गये कि क्या हो गया कहीं हमारे बच्चे नें कुछ किया तो नहीं| पर  मैंने अपना परिचय बताते हुए उनसे बच्चे के बारे में बताने को कहा जब उन्हें लगा कि सरकार की तरफ से आयें हैं हमें कुछ लाभ दिलायेंगे तो वो तुरंत बताने को तैयार हो गये ओर फिर उन्होंने बच्चे का नाम मोहम्मद नावेद बताया ओर कहा की, “हमारा बच्चा पागल है इसलिए किसी स्कूल में दाखिला नहीं मिल पा रहा क्योंकि यह बच्चों को मारता है ओर कुछ ना कुछ हरकत करता रहता है।“ फिर मैने बच्चे का रिकार्ड मंगवाया जिसमें उसमें उसके विकलांगता प्रमाण पत्र को देखा उन्हें समझाया कि यह बालक पागल नहीं है बच्चे का मानसिक विकास कम हुआ है ओैर यह बच्चा पढ़ सकता है अभिभावक हँसने लगे साहब आप हमारा मजाक उड़ा रहें हैं, पर मैंने उनसे कहा कि ऐसा नहीं है बच्चा पढ़ सकता है केवल बच्चे को ध्यान देने की आवश्यकता है। मेरे बहुत जोर देने पर वह पढाने हेतु तैयार हो गये लेकिन मैंने जब उन्हें बताया कि बच्चे को छात्रावास में रखेंगे तब वह मना करने लगे पर मैंने उन्हें आश्वासन  दिया कि 15 दिन में यदि आप अपने बच्चें में बदलाव नहीं देखेंगे तो हम आप के बालक को वापस कर देंगे। वह इस विश्वास पर बच्चे को छोड़ने हेतु तैयार हो गये और दूसरे दिन बच्चे को छात्रावास में छोड़ गये अब परीक्षा की घड़ी मेरी थी क्योंकि मैने उनसे 15 दिन का समय लिया था। मैंने भी ठान लिया था कि मै बच्चे में बदलाव लाऊंगा। फिर मैंने अपने छात्रावास में मानसिक विकलांगता से प्रशिक्षित शिक्षिका श्रीमति भावना कटियार से बच्चे के बारे में चर्चा की| उन्होंने बालक के स्वभाव को जाना और अगले दिन मैडम ने बच्चे के संबंध में बताया कि बच्चा होनहार है और वह दो दिन में बहुत कुछ सीख गया है और सीखने की कोशिश भी कर रहा है| अब हमें आशा की किरण दिखाई देने लगी कि हमारी मेहनत सफल हो गई यह मेरा विश्वास था| 15 दिन तक सही ट्रीट करने के बाद बच्चे में इतना बदलाव देखकर मैं चकित रह गया, बच्चा क,ख,ग लिखना सीख गया, ए,बी,सी,डी लिखना सीख गया मैं अचंभित था| उसके घर वालों को फोन किया और बताया कि आप अपने बच्चे से आकर मिल लें। वह आये और बच्चे की प्रतिभा देख वह खुद आश्चर्यचकित रह गये एक दिन मोबाइल में गाना चल रहा था तो मैंने गौर किया कि बच्चा डाँस करने की कोशिश कर रहा था तो मैंने उसके पास जाकर तेज आवाज में गाना बजाया तो मैं उसका डाँस देखकर दंग रह गया अब मैंने इस संबंध में मेडम से चर्चा की विश्व  विकलांग दिवस पर राजधानी मे प्रोग्राम होता है क्यों न बच्चों की प्रतिभा को आगे लाया जाये और दोनों विशेष शिक्षक श्रीमति भावना कटियार और श्रीमति रीना यादव ने सभी बच्चों के साथ ही नवेद को विशेष नृत्य प्रशिक्षण दिया, अब हमारी ओैर हमारे शिक्षकों की परीक्षा की घड़ी थी| 03 दिसम्बर के प्रोग्राम में नवेद और उसके दोस्तों को भाग दिलवाया गया सभी नें अपना-अपना प्रोग्राम दिखाया अब बारी नवेद की थी, वो  स्टेज पर गया जैसे ही गाना चालू हुआ उसने अपनें डाँस का प्रदर्शन दिखाया, वहाँ उपस्थित सभी की तालियों की आवाज से बच्चा इतना उत्साहित हुआ कि हम अंदाजा नही लगा सकते कि उसे कितनी खुशी मिली होगी। दि. 01/12/2016 बी.आर.सी. में हुए प्रोग्राम में प्रथम पुरुस्कार एकल नृत्य में प्राप्त किया और 03 दिसम्बर को भी वही डाँस किया जिसमें उसने और अधिक अच्छा प्रर्दशन कर दिखाया क्योंकि पुरुस्कार पाने के कारण उसमें उत्साह था। 03 दिसम्बर को भी एकल नृत्य में प्रथम पुरूष्कार प्राप्त कर सभी का दिल जीत लिया| आज नवेद, छात्रावास में पढ़ रहा है और उसकी प्रतिभा पहले से ओर ज्यादा है अब वह पढ़ना सीख रहा है, पड़ने के साथ एक चीज और वो सीख रहा है, जो है बढना|

नवेद की कहानी सुने तो लगता है की, नवेद हमें सिखाता है की कभी भी हार नहीं माननी चाहिए, साथ ही यह भी की सारे समाज, परिवार एवं अभिभावकों को समझना चाहिये की, निःशक्तता अभिशाप नहीं है|
