Country’s 1st ‘Beti Garden’ to open in Udaipur

While the majority is still discussing on how to deal with problems of declining sex ratio, violence against women and shrinking greenery, here is a man who has found a novel way to sensitize people on all of them.
‘Shloka Beti Garden’ is taking shape speedily in Udaipur which would be perhaps the first of its kind in the country. Unlike other gardens, this one would be a platform where parents would rejoice the birth of their girl child. Daughter’s birth would be celebrated here at the expense of the Siddha Peeth which would arrange for rituals like yagya, hawan and prasad to invoke blessings for the infants.

To welcome the daughters as avatars of mother nature and godesses like Lakshmi, Durga and Saraswati, the parents and relatives would be made to plant trees of therapeutic values. The project is the brainchild of Devendra Agrawal, founder of Maa Bhagwati Vikas Sansthan, an NGO, which has been working ardently for the cause of saving abandoned infants especially girls for nine years now in Udaipur.
Agrawal is also the man behind the set up of Divya Mother Milk Bank, the first of its kind not only in Rajasthan but North India. After the success of the bank in Udaipur, Agrawal has been appointed as the state advisor for project envisaging set up of milk banks, one in each district by this year.

“The construction of the garden is ongoing on a vast land of 2 acres at Tiger Hill in Badi area. The estimated budget is around Rs 1 crore which is being met by public contribution and charity. The garden would be ready for dedication within six months,” Devendra Agrawal said. “Our society is prejudiced and people still have priorities for sons. At Beti Garden we aim to make people realize that there is no difference between them. Girls should be welcomed with dignity and love,” he added.
The Siddha Peeth would charge no money for the rituals, chants and prasad, however, if anyone would like to offer an ‘Annaprasadam’ it would be made available at nominal price. Agarawal’s cradle project that started in April 2007 has received 138 babies so far who were saved due to their safe abandonment in cradles.

Explaining up the vibes (that one must have felt) and the shear motivational content provided by Sir N.Rahguraman cannot be recreated again through words. However, the key notes of the seminar are listed below.

It was an evening filled with a tonic for the brain. Mr. Raghuraman, as per his excellence revealed some simple yet very effective ‘Management Fundas’. Sharing his widespread knowledge, he anchored on some interesting features that one should follow so as to undergo a positive change and refine one’s attitude and possibility of success.

Raghuraman jiThe management guru emphasized on the point that ‘One must live in the present. Living in the present leads to the generation of good and worthy thoughts which further leads to the generation of good ideas which ultimately will help you in scoring better. ‘An Idea’ which forms the base of any business or new venture is struck by living in present, as one has no control over the past, and the unpredictable future it is thereby necessary to live in the present.’

Change Your Words. You’ll change your World                                                     

He also mentioned the role of ‘Cross Sectional Experiences’ in developing one’s ‘right’ attitude and its impact on the refinement of their perception. He made sure to explain his concepts, presentation and ideology through means of a well planned series of slides and videos.

On a question concerning with the differences between Success and Happiness, he said,
“Success and Happiness are two different things, there are times when success gives you happiness yet happiness does not mean Success. The goals you decide or the target you set when nurtured with the hard work, practice, proper planning leads to the ‘as desired’ execution of the goal, this is what success may mean to someone. However happiness is a state. My success is writing, for what I am doing right now is what gives me happiness.”

With a strong and truly motivating speech by Mr. Raghuraman, the seminar finally came to an end with the series of question answer round. We hope to be guided by Sir Raghuraman soon again.
