Tomorrow we will switch our calendars to a new year, 2019. Since it’s the last day of the year, I wanted to post about some thing really important.
What do you think is the major difference between a developed and a developing nation? There may be a number of answers to this but the word ‘education’ is a very significant one. A educated society is the solution to more than half of world’s troubles and problems.
As Nelson Mandela said, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”
India, one of the world’s largest countries, is home to a number of prestige educational institutes. But, on the other hand, less than half of Indian children go to school. And what’s more disheartening is the fact that the government seems to be more interested in everything other than this basic facility that every child deserves.
The reasons for this poor percentage of school-going children are many including ignorance, corruption, lack of opportunities, poor implementation of government schemes etc but what needs to be thought of is that till when are children in our country shall be devoid of this basic human right! It is mind boggling to see that how many young boys and girls roam the streets or are subjected to child labour when it is time to sit in classrooms and study. I am not going to go into facts and figures because everyone reading this can google that up. Some might argue that overpopulation has made it impossible to achieve a high literacy rate which is definitely a reason but then the Indian state Kerela has managed to record a 100% literacy rate. Then why not the other states?What I intend to bring up is that it’s time for each and every one of us to do our bit in promoting education in our country. Yes, it is the government’s duty to bring literacy in the country but while that seems to be far-fetched, at least we can do something about it.
I would like to introduce you all to The Butterfly Effect, an initiation by Pechkus and In-Deed Fundation. While Pechkus is an indigenous clothing brand, In-deed Foundation is a non-profit organisation that works to promote education in rural India. Kids in rural parts of the country, even those with a passion for learning, often are deprived of education. Which is why it is all the more important to focus on such areas. Pechkus has launched The Butterfly Effect collection of t-shirts for both men and women. So, when you buy any item(s) from this collection, the money shall go to In-Deed Foundation.
The goal is to sell and raise funds to help IN-DEED organize Learn-a-thons in Western Rajasthan.
Coming to my outfit:
In this outfit, I’m wearing the Pencil Power Graphic Tee (Size-M). The t-shirt is of a superb quality, fits perfectly and I love the pencil design. I also really like how the yellowish shade goes with the burgundy. It is something that looks really stylish and gives a great feeling about my contribution to education. We can never have enough t-shirts, can we? So why not add a new, stylish one to your closet and contribute to a greater cause at the same time?
