In Tamil Nadu the government is providing free cycles to all students studying in government schools. The scheme was started by Jayalalitha. First she gave to all girl students, now both boys and girls get free cycles. This has enabled lot of students to attend school even from a distance.
both poverty and children has been the hall mark of this country for centuries;has any organization or governmet dept ever tried to find out how many poor children have made any significant contribution to anything? these ngos are doing these inconsequential things to keep themselves busy and keep taking funds from everywhere and anywrhere. Has any ngo groomed children, poor children, from childhood to adulthood and then ensured that a fully educated person becomes an active partner in building society? Has any ngo gone in for spreading the message of birht control? or has any political party got a birth control item on their manifesto? All sham; the whole lot of these selfish and worthless organizations; so also the corrupt government which is only keen to perpetuated itself. The country is ownerless and is being raped.

Regarding NGO's your statement is valid,however,there are really many sincere NGO's well.This is true,number of NGOs are huge and their contributions are too little..most are making money,especially from foreign countries..so,these organizations need to be made accountable !
Regarding poor student's contribution,it is there.However,media is not focussing and its not fault of the ex poor students..
First contribution is that atleast from their own family,they are alleviating poverty,India mostly being a structure of joint families,especially in village areas,one such educated person is helping to uplift the living standard of several others...
though these attractive schemes or welfare (?) schemes look good but punjab is always ignored in extending help to the poor people here. this is heart breaking. punjab has never been given its due by the centre governments of their times whether it is congress or the other one. no NGO has come to the help of poor folk of punjab.

I am very proud of the fact that such good work is being done in a North Indian, Hindi speaking state. About other people of India, I simply don't care. And I feel that we Hindi people should not even be sharing a nation with the non-Hindi speakers who are a weird group of people.

which is millions of Tamils , Sikh , marathas and bengalis have been brutalized and exploited by the hindi exploiters. we gave these hindi ani_mals freedom by our sweat and blood , and they turned out worse than british. Now we need freedom from hindi yoke. make sanskrit the national language of india along with english and in respective states importance of regional language should be topmost.
you seem to be totally ignorant, or pretend to be ignorant shuriah; writing to get publicity even though what you write and predict may be total b..l s..t. How many poor children, from village schools, have, after growing up,made any significant contribution to anything? You see them going to school in an aimless manner and since there are no teachers, worth their name, in the school they end up with a distorted package of what can never be called education. In the cities this category is as purposeless and useless as in the villages; in their spare time they are picking rags, or working in dhabas, or as icecream vendors or sheparding goats or cattle. Now what contribution are you expecting of them? What you have written is, as I have said, b..l s..t and the gullible rediff is itching to print anything that, though total nonsense,attracts a reader. Deceitful reporting and selfish publishing

perverted and cynical way of seeing things this, mr sudhir sood... with due respect to u, let me say that education makes certainly a difference in anybody's life.. possibly including yours...
The NGO is doing a good job. Well done NGO and keep it up.
In my view more and more NGOs should come forward to alleviate the sufferings of the poor. A Govt. agency would have seen ways to make profits from such an activity too. Such low is the credibility of Govt. agencies.
