Indian Independence Day – Another day & value of $50

one comment

I have written previously about our Republic day, and the importance of education from the grass root level, Gandhi’s ideology and his take on education.

So, today I was donating some money to giveindia.org, started by IIM-A Alum, Venkat Krishnan. This is not like any other NGO aggregation “startup”, but a trust worthy one. They take the pains to filter out NGOs in India which actually do relevant work and do not exist just to mint money.

Anyway, so this is the price of education for a child for 1 year:

Amazed? $47.40 for 1 whole year of education for a child in India?! Think again! Thinking what can you do with $50?

Or you can just donate that money to giveindia.org

PS: I won’t crib about our political system, politicians etc this time. Have a plan B for that ;)
