Home-cooked tiffins to expecting and new mothers - A unique project
Firstpost; 16 April, 2018
Kapadvanj: For more than a year, the residents of Kapadvanj town in Gujarat have been sending home-cooked tiffins to expecting and new mothers as well as their attendants at the Tribhuvandas Foundation (TF) Hospital run by Amul. What started as an assistance for those travelling all the way to Kapadvanj for treatment, blossomed into a full-fledged programme where volunteers contribute to the mega task of delivering 300 hot tiffins a month every afternoon.

The 18-bed hospital in Kapadvanj town also caters to patients from nearby villages like Navagam, Sorna, Vadali and as far as Balasinor and Mehmedabad, which is 35 kilometres away. While the charity hospital isn't big enough to have a canteen, the food available at local eateries is considered unhygienic for pregnant women and new mothers. Farhin Shaikh, 23, resident of Gaziavada society in Kapadvanj, with her newborn daughter. Farhin has been getting the tiffin for the last two days.

The practice of delivering home-cooked food started when residents noticed how patients had nowhere to go for a healthy meal, says Jawaharlal Chandani, superintendent of the hospital. “Sometimes we had seen women or family members accompanying patients skipping the food. Getting food to them on time was a challenge for their families,” he says.

The volunteers of Bharat Vikas Parishad (BVP) approached Harish Kundaliya, a consultant surgeon who is also on the board of directors of Tribhuvandas Foundation, to anchor the scheme. Along with Chandani, they assessed the scale of patients and the demand, and decided on getting 10 tiffins delivered a day.

The work for the project began with volunteers of BVP going to various areas in the town to explain the scheme to residents. The request was very simple. Prepare one extra tiffin once a month. “Our target was to get 300 volunteers from across the town, so one family would have to prepare just one tiffin a month,” says Vipul Patel, president of the outfit. Vipul Patel says they sat with Kundaliya and decided to keep the food simple. “Roti-sabzi is not a drain on any volunteer’s pocket,” he added.

The mission is accomplished with almost zero cash outflow and work is divided such that it does not put a lot of burden on anyone volunteer. The only cost is the rickshaw fare and a salary to the person collecting the tiffins. Residents pack a portion from their regular home-cooked food—roti and sabzi—in the tiffin and send it over to the hospital. They don't know who gets to have it, nor do patients know who the contributors are. This ensures the act remains a kind of gupt daan (secret help) and the dignity of persons receiving it is fully maintained.

The main challenge was delivering the food on time. The Jivan Shilp Foundation, which bought 20 tiffin boxes and two racks for smooth logistics, also took care of the delivery. The tiffins are kept in a rack and collected the next day. KK Patel, a school principal and a member of BVP, was made the project coordinator. For around three months in the initial stages, Patel would call up volunteers to remind them that their tiffins were due. He would also ring them up to thank them after the tiffins were delivered. Slowly, over a period of three months, a structure emerged and the town was divided into 30 clusters of 10 volunteering families each. A cluster leader was appointed to look after who would make the tiffin in case of non-availability of a volunteer.

Each cluster now has a WhatsApp group. Volunteers are sent a reminder and empty tiffin boxes a day before for delivery. The clusters are divided in a way that all tiffins can be collected in around 15 to 20 minutes. Farhin Shaikh, a recent mother, says, “I have been getting the tiffin for the last two days. Usually, there are ten rotis in it, so I can share my food with someone.”

Harish Kundaliya, who was at the fulcrum of getting this project going, says, “The success of such schemes is in the last mile delivery. We ensured that the community takes ownership, and after the initial hand-holding, the program is now on auto mode and ready to be expanded to cover other hospitals and more patients.” The gynaecology hospital is a boon as it offers quality services at nominal prices.

“Comparatively speaking, a normal delivery costs Rs 600 at Tribhuvandas Foundation while private doctors may charge anywhere from Rs 5,000 onwards. With an OPD that receives around 100 patients every day, this hospital has slowly emerged as a destination for many,” Chandani said. With the inauguration of a 40-bed hospital happening soon, the tiffin team is ready to take on the challenge of increased patients, and a list of donors who wish to be a part of the effort is being compiled.

250 people screened and diagnosed
Health-centric urban design can roll back epidemic of chronic diseases: Sushil
State Times; 16 January 2018
Jammu: Stressing on the need to place health at the centre of urban planning and policymaking so that a culture of health is within the reach, Dr Sushil Sharma, HoD Cardiology SSH and GMC Jammu held a medical camp at Trikuta Nagar area of Jammu city. The camp was organised in collaboration with Shakti Foundation and Bharat Vikas Parishad. More than 250 people were screened and diagnosed and free medicines were given as per the requirements.

During his interaction, Dr Sushil maintained that recent studies are indicative of the fact that most of the top ten causes of death directly or indirectly are influenced by faulty urban design and planning policies.

“Chronic non-communicable diseases have multiple factors (genetic, epigenetic, behavioural and environmental). In this context, conditions that are more frequent in the urban setting such as air pollution, social stress and climate change should be considered important health determinants and included in the policymaking and planning process to effectively contribute to health promotion at all social levels. Green environments are associated with better self-reported health, lower blood pressure, lower psychophysiological stress and lower mortality risks,” he said.

Management Committee of the Shakti Foundation and Bharat Vikas Parishad Jammu who were present included Yash Puri, D.P Arora, Parshotam Gupta, Ajay Gupta, Surinder Gupta, Rohit Mahajan and Lucky Puri expressed their heartfelt gratitude to Dr Sushil and his team for conducting the camp. Others who were prominently associated with this initiative include Dr Dhaneshwar Kapoor, Dr Kewal Sharma and Dr Chakshu Mahajan. Paramedics and volunteers who were part of the team included Vikas Kumar, Kamal Kishore, Sahil Raina, Amandeep Singh, Rajeev Vohra, Vikas Sabharwal, Gourav Sharma, Rajinder Singh, Bhanu Pratap Singh, Ankush Kohli and Akshay Kumar.

Aurangabad to get its own artificial limb centre
Times of India; 25 January,  2017
Aurangabad: The NGO, Bharat Vikas Parishad, will open a Vikalang Punarwansan Kendra on the premises of Dr Hedgewar Hospital to treat the patients free of cost. As of now three to four non-governmental organisations conduct camps twice or thrice a year and provide the famous artificial limbs. But there is no dedicated centre for it in the district due to which the patients specially coming from remote areas have to wait for months.

"We have recently identified space for the centre in the hospital and the concerned officials have given us in-principle approval for the noble cause. We hope that the centre will start treating patients from mid-February," Shirpad Takalkar, treasurer of Aurangabd branch of Bharat Vikas Parishad (Devgiri Prant), said.

With the new facility in place, the patients in and around the district would get artificial limbs within eight to 10 days. "As of now, after participating in the camps, the patients need to wait for 25-30 days to get the artificial limb. However, at our proposed centre, we will deploy a team of technicians who will prepare the foot within the shortest possible time," he said.

For the past many years, Bharat Vikas Parishad has been conducting camps across various locations in the district and providing Jaipur foot to the needy free of cost. "In a recent camp held in Vijapur, more than 115 physically handicapped persons approached us. However, only 53 of them could qualify for the foot on technical grounds and we offered them the artificial limbs in presence of Maharashtra state assembly speaker Haribhau Bagde," Takalkar said.

72 couples tie the knot in ‘cashless wedding’
Hindustan Times; 17 December, 2016
Noida: : A wedding where the pandit accepts ‘dakshina’ (remuneration) in cheque, band artistes and wedding organisers are digital and the entire ceremony is managed cashless may be a pipe dream in these times of demonetisation. But that’s how the nuptials of 72 underprivileged couples from Delhi-NCR will take place on Saturday morning.

Bharat Vikas Parishad, a pan India cultural body, is organising the ‘cheque-only’ marriage ceremony. With a budget of around Rs80 lakh, the organisation plans to pay the pandal organisers, lighting equipment facilitators, band artistes, caterers and pandits in cheque, bank transfers and e-wallet payments. “Every single payment will be done in a cashless manner. When we began accepting donations from various organizations and residents in Noida, we made it clear that it is a strict cheque/online banking only wedding,” said Pankaj Jindal, Noida founder of Bharat Vikas Parishad.

The organisation has been holding community marriages for underprivileged couples in the past as well. There have been three such marriage events in the past in which more than 300 couples have tied the knot. But this is the first time that a cashless marriage ceremony is being organised. “Usually, we organise marriage of at least 100 couples, but this year, due to demonetisation, we could manage only 72 couples. We wanted to ensure that we follow the prime minister’s call to go digital,” said Rajiv Agarwal, president, Bharat Vikas Parishad. Of the 72 couples, 12 are from Bihar and the remaining from Delhi-NCR. The families had to apply for the wedding ceremony a few months ago.

“I am surprised and ecstatic about the fact that my daughter’s wedding is being conducted without cash. I believe every marriage should be done in this manner,” said Shakuntala Devi of Sasaram, Bihar. Apart from the wedding, the couples will also receive various gifts to begin their married life. The gift items were also bought without cash.

“The couples will also receive a dish set, blankets, fan, TV, gold mangal sutra, mattresses and furniture worth Rs90,000 so that they can begin their lives together easily. A majority of the fund come from our organisation and the remaining amount was received from various philanthropists in Noida. All our records are transparent and we are trying to set an example,” Jindal said.

Inculcate good moral values among youth: Guv
The Tribune; October 12 , 2016

Shimla: Youth with good moral values and education make a great nation.
This was stated by Governor Acharya Devvrat while presiding over a prize distribution ceremony of the group song competition, organised by the Bharat Vikas Parishad at Makri-Markand panchayat of Sadar development block in Bilaspur district today.



He said the youth always played a vital role in the country’s development and it was the duty of elders to guide them in achieving their goals in their lives and also contributing towards the betterment of the nation. He stressed that it was important to inculcate moral values and virtues in children from the very beginning so that they grew up as disciplined and responsible citizens.
He expressed concern over the fact that today the younger generation was not much concerned with the cultural heritage and it was our responsibility to make them aware of the importance of rich culture and high values.

Acharya Devvrat said the Britishers ruled India for a long period of time and Lord Macaulay strategically destroyed our education system. Today, we needed to preserve our culture and give good values to our children so that no force could harm our culture and integrity. He also urged students to read the biographies of great leaders and thinkers so that they got inspiration to lead a successful life.

He announced Rs 51,000 to the parishad for implementing its activities. The Governor released a souvenir of the parishad and distributed prizes among the winners.

युवाओं को बनाएं संस्कारवान : राज्यपाल
दैनिक भास्कर;
 12 October, 2016

राज्यपाल आचार्य देवव्रत ने कहा कि किसी भी राष्ट्र की सबसे बड़ी पूंजी उसकी युवा शक्ति होती है और जब यह पीढ़ी संस्कारित हो जाती है तो वह देश महान हो जाता है। राज्यपाल बुधवार को बिलासपुर जिले के विकास खंड सदर की ग्राम पंचायत माकड़ी-मारकंड में भारत विकास परिषद के प्रांत स्तरीय समूह गान प्रतियोगिता के पुरस्कार वितरण समारोह की अध्यक्षता करते हुए बोल रहे थे।


उन्होंने कहा कि राष्ट्र के विकास में युवाओं का महत्वपूर्ण योगदान होता है।युवाओं की शक्ति को सही दिशा प्रदान करना बड़ों का कर्तव्य है, जिन्हें स्वयं अच्छे संस्कारों को अपनाकर आदर्श प्रस्तुत करना चाहिए। उन्होंने कहा कि स्वाभाविक ज्ञान के अतिरिक्त नेमेतिक ज्ञान को हम प्रशिक्षण से प्राप्त करते हैं और यह क्षमता मानव में सर्वश्रेष्ठ है। मनुष्य में सीखे हुए ज्ञान को बढ़ाने और तुरंत ग्रहण करने के विशेष गुण मौजूद हैं। बच्चों को शुरूआत से ही अच्छे संस्कार नहीं दिए तो वह कुछ भी नहीं सीखेगा। उन्होंने चिंता व्यक्त करते हुए कहा कि आज युवा पीढ़ी अपनी सांस्कृतिक विरासत भूल रही है और यह हमारा दायित्व है कि उन्हें अपनी समृद्ध संस्कृति और उच्च मूल्यों से परिचित करवाएं तभी हम सुदृढ़ राष्ट्र की परिकल्पना कर सकते हैं।

आचार्य देवव्रत ने कहा कि अंग्रेजों ने हम पर लंबे समय तक शासन किया और लार्ड मेकाले ने सुनियोजित तरीके से हमारी शिक्षा पद्धति को नष्ट किया ताकि इस देश पर राज कर सके। मगर आज हमें अपनी संस्कृति को बचाना है तो बच्चों को घर से ही संस्कार देने चाहिए। हमारी संस्कृति में 16 संस्कारों की बात की गई है, इसलिए भौतिक सुख से ज्यादा बच्चों को संस्कार देना अधिक जरूरी है।

संस्कृति के संरक्षण की दिशा में भारत विकास परिषद के प्रयासों की सराहना करते हुए उन्होंने कहा कि यह परिषद राष्ट्र उत्थान का कार्य कर रही है। उन्होंने परिषद को अपनी गतिविधियों को और प्रभावी तरीके से कार्यान्वित करने के लिए 51,000 रुपये देने की घोषणा की। राज्यपाल ने इस मौके पर परिषद की स्मारिका का विमोचन भी किया। प्रांत स्तरीय समूह गान प्रतियोगिता का प्रथम पुरस्कार बिलासपुर शाखा, द्वितीय पुरस्कार शिमला शाखा और तृतीय पुरस्कार पांवटा साहिब शाखा को प्रदान किया।


इससे पूर्व, भारत विकास परिषद के राष्ट्रीय संयुक्त महामंत्री विनीत गर्ग ने राज्यपाल का स्वागत करते हुए कहा कि परिषद की 1200 से अधिक शाखाएं देश भर में कार्यरत हैं और 50 हजार से अधिक सदस्य है। भारत विकास परिषद के राष्ट्रीय महामंत्री अजय दत्ता, राष्टीय मंत्री राकेश सहगल, पूर्व प्रांत के अध्यक्ष सलिल शमशेरी, बिलासपुर शाखा के अध्यक्ष अरुण गौतम और अन्य लोग भी इस अवसर पर उपस्थित रहे।
