A PRAJAAPATI STUDENT
STUDYING AT UNIVERSITY
STATUS OF EDUCATION
....WHERE PRAJAAPATI ROOTS ARE...
Question 1. Why there is such a low level of education in
prajaapati families in Gujarat?
The reasons behind this are:
- Most of prajaapati families are stay in the villages, so there is not enough
knowledge about the subject of studies to the parents.
- Most of the parents are illiterate and financially backwards.
- In most of the families there is only few persons who earn while larger numbers of members are to
be served by them. So one person in the family cannot afford to send all the children for studying the higher education.
Question 2. What is needed to motivate
prajaapatio to study and reach at least a college level of skills where by they can get job in the
knowledge based industries in gujaraat?
According to me a common magazine of prajaapatio to be published by the seniors
who are educated people to guide the juniors to for choosing the line of subjects according to their
knowledge. And guide what they have to do for better education and get the better job.
Seniors have to guide about where are the scopes for the job. In this magazine we can also publish some advise for the education and financial help for the students.
A summer camp have to be managed in the vacation so the students can be get the
knowledge about the importance about the studies and their family responsibility.
In each taalukaa a common meeting of the prajaapatio should be held to inspire the
parent for the studying of their children.
Question 3. Why your local samaj is not promoting education in your village or town or city?
In Gujarat there are numbers of samaaj like kanbipatel, patidar, desai, vaniya, etc
which raise funds and use the funds to inspire the students for higher education.
While our fund raised are mostly used in infrastructure and only few percent of
the funds raised are used for studies.
Question 4. Why not many students are applying for PVAF scholarship to study college or
Mostly students don't know about this scholarship and haven't
the knowledge about the computer (to access Internet for news about PVAF) .
So can you image how they would know about the internet and this scholarship.
Also PVAF has lengthy procedure which needs more time to
approve this scholarship while we need the scholarship in emergency. If we wait then we have to drop a year ELSE apply for it before a year
we need the scholarship. Also there are so many inquiries in processing before giving scholarship.
Question 5. Why so many prajapati students are dropping out of school by grade 9 or
Because you give the scholarship after 12 standard only.
So the students who require the scholarship after the 10th doesn't get this and they have to join I.T.I. or drop the study.
There is no provision for the student who fails due to some reason like they didn't join
tuition classes and extra classes and doing part time job for his family. So it is not good that we give the scholarship only based on the
merit but we have to see the position of the students in life.
Some students drop out after the 12 because they didn't get the
admission due the low merit and join I.T.I or drop the study.
Question 6. Why girls drop out of school more than
Because our parent still believe in oldest method.
Some parent are not able to make their girls study
because they do not have sufficient money to make their boys study, so how can he
make his girl study.
Another reason is that parent thinks that girls mostly
would be house wives so no further study will be needed for them.
A big reason is that parents think that girls are not safe out side of their house because there is only boys
are admitted to Prajapati Vidyarthi Ashram while girls are not admissible to
Prajapati Vidhyarthi Ashram .
Question 7. Do you know any student who have not gone to college or
university because they do not have money?
yes, sir i know the student who didn't get education because of the
finance problem. There is one is my class-mate. His name is My First
Prajapati Friend (name withheld). When we were in standard 10 he get good percentage, that is
about 70. But his father is not able to give money for higher study and therefore he had joined I.T.I. in Plastic
subjects. He has completed in one year and now doing job with little salary 1500 or 2000 Rs.
And other man who is study in B.E. production engineering in
Vallabh Vidya Nagar and also he live with me . His name is My Second
Prajapati Friend (name withheld) He is from gaam (name withheld). He
will tell you but he knows that last year we did not get money . I
will introduce you to him later.
