What you can and should do, being an interested organization/institution/individual

There are villages, village clusters, slums, small towns and large
cities around the place where you live and work. Get to know the
people who live there, live and learn with them. Through personal
knowledge or through data which you can obtain, identify their
key problems, their important needs and the major constraints
which affect people's lives and well-being. And then choose one
or more specific locations or an entire area, depending upon your
understanding and abilities and your rapport with the people who

This is a gigantic voluntary effort to reach out to and transform
the lives of nearly a third of our people - and in the process
get transformed ourselves.
Come one, come all
- the young and the old,the learned
and the not-so-learned, teachers and students, rural and the
urban, moneyed and the poor,people of all shades and colours.
The country needs you all to participate, to get immersed
and absorbed in this magnificent dream of a million activists.
our dream, be one with us.
We have a dream - all of us - of a collective effort. A mass action
covering every nook and corner of this great country: its remotest
villages and cities, mighty hills and vast planes, green forests
and scorched deserts, smallest schools and large universities.
We will learn and we will teach. But our dream goes beyond communication.
This will be a communion,a communion of the educated and the unread,
of people from various backgrounds. Indeed a communion of the
people with their country, a communion with its richness and poverty,
with its culture and diversity, with both our achievements and
our problems.Varied ideas and opinions would come together, differences
would be understood and made harmless through immersion in the
joy and excitement of learning and working together to change
the face of this land.
Dreams have wings, and we might even achieve a great deal. But
merely being involved in a venture of this kind is a gain for
all the participants. At the least they would themselves be transformed.
Perhaps the time is right for such an engagement and action. This
is what has motivated a large number of individuals, organisations,
institutions and agencies ,from all over the country, to come
together to join BJGVS, to work together, to give shape to our
collective dream and, in the process, transform the destiny of
