They say, when you educate a man, you educate a person, when you educate a woman, you educate a whole generation. Breaking all the stereotypes and bringing girls’ education in light, “Beti Bachao and Beti Padhao” social awareness campaign are making waves in India. Today every parent is celebrating the success of girl child’s birth and making India proud by sending their daughters to schools for education. And taking this pride in the heart, Mr.Ranjit Goel, CMD and Mrs. Roop Sodhi, Club Director at Best Western Resort Country Club, participated in the Republic Day celebration on Jan 26, 2019, in Govt. Secondary High School, village Kalwari which is located in the vicinity of the resort only.
Mr. Ranjit Goel, addressing the odd cultures of our Indian societies for girls’ education, brought everyone’s attention towards the efficiency of welfare services meant for girls. While admiring the wonderful benefits of educating girls, he noted that the school had about 40% girls. He also drew his attention towards the wonderful performance of colourfully-dressed girls who were entertaining a large gathering of villagers and school students by their impressive dancing and singing talent.
He explained to everyone that how girls can get independent socially and financially with the help of education. He also criticised child foeticide strongly, lambasting those people who take their girl child as a burden and grieving on the fact that the female population is decreasing day by day. He made all the villagers aware of how they can contribute towards unrooting the increasing crimes against girls and how sending them to schools can benefit them in the future. He also invited everyone to give their valuable suggestions on girl child education.
The effect of his speech was such that some villagers proudly brought their newly born baby girls to him. Apart from girl child education, Mr. Goel addressed the sanitation issues in the village and advised everybody to initiate “Swachh Gram Abhiyan” so that they can keep their homes & village area clean to make Kalwari, a modern village of Haryana.
