We are glad to inform you that Vivekananda Study Circle (VSC – a voluntary group of professionals in Technopark) is organizing ‘Vishuthaineettam’, a novel initiative to help the techies regain the lost connectivity with nature. VSC volunteers are gearing up to welcome this year’s Vishu by providing a sapling to the employees of Technopark. The idea is to keep the sapling as a Vrukshakkani and Vishuthaineettam to augment the traditional Vishukkani and Vishukkaineettam and thereby foster the love for nature in the hearts of younger generations.

We are planning to conduct an inaugural function on 8th April 2015 at 6 PM in Travancore Hall, Technopark, followed by a 2 day stall, from where the saplings will be distributed. As per the current plan, we are targeting to distribute a minimum of 2000 saplings to the techies. Well known environmentalist Padmashri Smt. Sugathakumari teacher has agreed to be our chief guest for the inaugural function and deliver the key note speech.

On behalf of the Vivekananda Study Circle, we request you to grace the occasion by your presence and be a part of the initiative.


Walk of Hope begins today

Published by:

Walk of Hope begins today….

Walk of Hope is a padayatra for peace and harmony by the Manav Ekta Mission – covering 6500 kms from Kanyakumari to Kashmir. Led by Sri M, founder of Manav Ekta Mission, the journey spans 15-18 months through 11 Indian states, bringing together citizens from all walks of life. Traversing the varied landscape of India, it seeks a significantly restored nation—fit enough to be bequeathed to our future generations.

The Walk of Hope will flag off on 12 January 2015, the birth anniversary of a great prophet of interfaith harmony, Swami Vivekananda. Starting from the Gandhi Memorial Mandapam in Kanyakumari and concluding in Srinagar, Jammu & Kashmir, this initiative will reach out to 10 million fellow Indians.

The padayatra will cover 15-20 kms a day and halt in the evening at a pre-determined village or town enroute. The evening will be spent meeting with the local populace – which will include meaningful dialogues, inter-faith prayers, eating together and, finally, resting overnight at their homes. A diverse assembly of responsible citizens, who foresee a united and inclusive India for themselves and the future generations, will accompany Sri M in this walk.

The Walk of Hope is an exercise to restore the innate spirituality of the nation – rekindling true faith and rejuvenating the spirit of hope, love, peace, harmony and oneness. The hope is to erase disparities arising from a misunderstanding of our diverse culture and religions, thus uniting the humanity of India through a spiritual approach proving people can live together despite all differences. You can join or step out at any place or time as you wish, during the walk.
