Early Times Report
JAMMU, Apr 4: In a remarkable display of social responsibility and commitment to education equity, students from the Journalism department at Jammu University have taken a pioneering step by conducting open classes for the children of laborers. This initiative, spearheaded by the guidance of Vice Chancellor Prof. Umesh Rai and inspired by the ethos of the New Education Policy (NEP) 2020, reflects a profound dedication to breaking down barriers and fostering inclusive learning environments.
Under the visionary leadership of their class teacher, Dr. Pardeep Singh Bali, students of the 4th semester have embraced the transformative potential of education beyond conventional boundaries. They have recognized the power of small actions to drive significant societal change. With a firm belief that education is the cornerstone of empowerment, these students embarked on a journey to extend their knowledge beyond the confines of the classroom.
The program, conceived as part of their curriculum, aligns perfectly with the NEP 2020's emphasis on community engagement and holistic education. By organizing open classes for the children of laborers within the university campus, these budding journalists are not only disseminating information but also actively contributing to societal upliftment.
Named Karman Singh, Alina Shapoo, Palak Singh, Humaira Raina, Hemani Kandhari, and Suhil Khan, Rohan Mahajan,Vineet Gupta these students stand as shining examples of proactive citizenship and compassionate leadership. Their dedication to bridging educational gaps and empowering marginalized communities is truly commendable.
Through initiatives like these, students are not only honing their journalistic skills but also embodying the spirit of social responsibility ingrained in their profession. They understand that journalism is not merely about reporting events but also about driving positive change and giving voice to the voiceless.
As the world navigates through unprecedented challenges, the actions of these students serve as a beacon of hope and inspiration. Their commitment to education equity underscores the transformative power of education in shaping a more just and inclusive society.
In the words of Mahatma Gandhi, "Be the change you wish to see in the world." The students of Jammu University's Journalism department have taken these words to heart, demonstrating that even the smallest gestures can catalyze significant societal transformations. As they continue their journey, they leave an indelible mark on the landscape of education and social welfare, reminding us all of the profound impact that individuals can make when driven by compassion and conviction.
