My visit to Sarnath

Two weeks ago I went to visit Sarnath with one of my friend to see jeevan dip school.It is a social organization working for blind girls for their uplift in the society.

I did not know about this school however I have been several times to sarnath. but one of my elder brother and friend Dr.Alok took me there. I was very much excited to see the girls how they study!

Actually when I was under my high school i studied about the script of Blind they learn but I really did not understand how did  it used to work? when one of employee  took on the tour of the school.we visited from class nursery to 6th.Girls stood up to welcome us and they recited some poems and reading of the lesson and what ever they have been taught on that particular day.

I was so surprised to see them how nicely they can study and learn the things through this script.

After that he took us to computer room where students learn how to operate computer without seeing .Computer Instructor sowed us using computer through voice.It’s make sound what ever command they press.

I am so happy to visit this school who soever go to visit Sarnath must try to get chance to visit this project.

Watson Fellow

Brian Dolphin is a pitzer college student and watson fellow from united state of America.He is travelling many countries and study about the nature of music.He came to India from Nepal and started learning Hindi with me as he could speak a mix language of Nepali with Bhojpuri.

I asked him how many hours in a day you want your lesson he said that he wants three to fours hour a day.we started with two hrs a day .one hour he was meeting with me and for another hour he was meeting my wife as he was very much interested in folk music and devotional bhajan.they used to sing and they were translating the bhajan.he never studied with book as he said that he had never learnt with reading the book and other learning materials.

When ever I was giving the language construction and expression and I was saying him to write  down he used to say in sweet Hindi language “”LIKHNA NAHI PARTA HAI””that means I do not need to write .he used keep in his mind.He promised me if forget then give me the punishment.

Here I would like to say every student and researchers if you have opportunity to interact with locals and other street worker who are not related with tourism activities ,It is really going to work.Brian always in touch with such kind of people.many times I had seen him talking with such people like eggs sellers,Rickshaw repairing man.and other people abstain talking with these people.

Brian adapted indian culture in very lees of time and he practiced Indian way of living like eating habit,greeting in varanasi way saying “mahadev”,chewing world famous beetle of Varanasi.He hardly used to go to eat American food as he became habitual eating indian food.

One day he asked why i have three rings in finger and it was just astrologer advice .I have faith in these kinds of things so he also insisted me to take at astrologer.we went there and greeted him in indian way by touching his that astrologer got socked as it is not common when a western greets touching the feet of elder.Astrologer told him about his past ,present and future in Hindi mostly he could understand what astrologer and where ever he could not then I was translating for him.
