The necessity had long been felt. The will was there. What was
required was only to get started. The patriotic feeling aroused
by the sacrifice of the Indian soldiers at Kargil war, 1999 served
as a catalyst to the process which was waiting to begin. Driven
by the urge to return something to the country which nourished them,
a few like minded young adults gave birth to DISHARI. DISHARI being
a community based voluntary organization, organized several socio-cultural
functions, exhibition cum sale. The money that was collected was
donated to the army welfare fund at the Fort William, Kolkata. This
endeavor created ripples of acknowledgement among the local people
especially considering the fact that the average age group of the
members was only 18!
Dishari flashed like a comet but soon vanished as the members had
to persuade for respective educational qualifications.
DISHARI dissolved physically, but its spirit remained in existence
only to reappear, after four years in different identity (guise).
By this time, many other organization s named DISHARI had cropped
up, so it was renamed ‘MARGAM’. But the underlined fact
is that DISHARI and MARGAM are two different look of the same soul
that lies within both of them with the same intensity.
‘MARGAM’ is originally a Sanskrit term which means ‘the
way’. It seeks to facilitate the journey for a better tomorrow.
It is the avenue to a new dawn.
Margam means ‘THE WAY’
‘THE WAY FOR A BETTER DAY’ the day where there will be
PEACE, FREEDOM and EQUALITY for all children.
Its true that ACTION SPEAKS,
but before we act we need decide on the right ways. The Marga-Blog
