 REPORTS..
..

The 3 year old PVAF Gujraat Education Program is very blessed to date to have awarded 5 full 4-year university scholarships to students and their families who are fighting very hard to break out of generation to generation poverty and suffering from the pain of poverty such as bad health, lack of progress in life, lack of wealth in life, lack of good jobs....simply because these families missed out on getting KNOWLEDGE THROUGH EDUCATION....

And the families of these students pray every day for empowerment from bhgvaan through their fellow humans to break out of poverty by:

 GETTING KNOWLEDGE THROUGH EDUCATION....
KNOWLEDGE WHICH WILL GIVE THEM
 GOOD JOBS AND THUS BREAK OUT OF POVERTY
 THROUGH THEIR OWN
 DHARmik kARm and HARD EFFORTS.....

These 5 students report weekly to their PVAF mentors through email correspondence from their universities and also during their vacations through the Computer Centres which where set up in 12 samaajo in Gujraat through PVAF Gujraat Internet Connection Program.....

Vijaykumar Natubhai Lad is going into second semester of a 4-year degree program in civil engineering at Vallabh Vidya Nagar University....Vijay kumar is assisted to get his degree through the PVAF Gujraat Education Program....Vijay kumar has sent his weekly report to his PVAF mentors about his progress at the study.....Vijaykumar has also described the very popular festival of mkr-sNkRaaNti in Gujraat and all over bhaart (India) and here is an extract of his writing ability and how he sees life:

 "The day gives inspiration to fly higher and higher without stopping like a KITE. As KITE flies in the sky freely we should free from tension. As kite is in control through string, we should keep control on some thing of life."...

What a upcoming author and a poet who would be a civil engineer building houses, roads, bridges, water and sewer systems and all kinds of social infrastructure for his fellow humans so that they can live a happy, healthy, progressive and prosperous lives.....

Hasmukhbhai, Champakbhai, Dipesh,

 I enjoyed "UTTARAYAN".

We are come back after our semester break of two week and I enjoyed it very happily.

3. CE 213 WATER RESOURCES ENGG. 4 B

SEMESTER PERFORMANCE INDEX AT THE END OF THE SEMESTER (SPI): 9:28
CUMULATIVE PERFORMANCE INDEX AT THE END OF THE SEMESTER (CPI): 8.94

My second semester of S.Y.B.E is started.

Here I am writing how we enjoyed "UTTARAYAN".

"UTTARAYAN" is a Gujarati word. "UTTARAYAN" is celebrated on 14th January of every year. On that day sun moves in "MAKAR" rashee as per Indian "NAKSHATRA". So "UTTARAYAN" is also called as "MAKARSANKRANTI".

On North Pole of the earth there is six months night and six monthís day. Before 14th January sun is on the South Pole of the earth but after 14th Jan. it is moved on North Pole and the peoples live at North Pole see sun after six month. So 14th January is called "UTTARAYAN".

On "UTTARAYAN" children and younger fly "KITE" in the sky. Women make "TAL-SANKARI" which is made from "TAL" (one type seed) and sugar. In our village women make "TAL-SANKARI" and it is first of all eaten by the cow because in "HINDU" religion cow is prayed as a mother and then it is given to the members of house.

Children and younger buy KITE and string from the bazaar before "UTTARAYAN". On "UTTARAYAN" they fly KITE in the sky from their terrace. They take "patch" with each other and cut the kite of each other and enjoy. On that day love between brother & sister is also observed. Brother sends "TAL-SANKARI" to his sister and gives blessing.

Some times "UTTARAYAN" may make unhappy when small children fall down from their terrace flying "KITE". In our village one child was felt down and admitted to hospital.

On "UTTARAYAN" I was went to "UNAI" (small city) 7 km away from my village. Hot waters natural streams are there where I was taken bath. There is old temple of GOD "RAM", "SITA", and "LAKSHAMAN". The story of this place is in "satyug" when RAM was going "VANVAS" they were passed from UNAI. I also enjoyed UTTARAYAN by flying kite & eating TAL-SANKARI.

The day gives inspiration to fly higher and higher without stopping like a KITE. As KITE flies in the sky freely we should free from tension. As kite is in control through string, we should keep control on some thing of life.

So this is about how we enjoy UTTARAYAN. Please write how you enjoy "UTTARAYAN" in next mail. I donít know E-mail IDís of Kalpeshbhai, Bhavinbhai & Vineshbhai so it will send on next mail.

Bye???????????????????????????????????????
