Let us care for those who help us sleep peacefully…
When we celebrate the national days of our country, we need to acknowledge those who quietly and humbly provide us with security, and ensure our safety when we sleep at night – the private watchmen and security guards employed in housing colonies, schools, NGOs etc. We at Banjara wish to reach out in our own small way to recognize and felicitate these brave people with a simple program on the eve of Republic day 2014.
Date: Saturday 25th January 2014 from 4:30 to 5:30 pm
Venue: Institute of Agricultural Technologists (IAT), Queens Road
Award presentation by an eminent high-ranking uniformed official
If you know any such individual who has been giving a minimum of 20 years dedicated service with a smile, who has been a source of warmth and security to you or your family/ child/ institution, please inform us, and we will interview the person, employers, and others, and possibly include him or her in the list of security personnel to be felicitated. Looking forward to your cooperation and your support (and even part sponsorship if possible) in this unique and different activity.

Leading Banjara Academy's online email counselling team of volunteer-counsellors, I realize it is not an easy task reaching out to a person one has never met, never seen, without the added advantage of gestures, eye contact, a gentle reassuring touch, tone of voice and yet providing empathy, positive strokes, making the person feel heard and understood.
With the aid of only written words, it is quite a task building trust, making people open up and share and helping them cope and feel better. So when in many instances they write back saying thank you and that they feel so much better, the feeling one gets is priceless and incomparable - knowing one has done something right, something good!
Hats off to all the volunteeer-counsellors of Banjara Academy who have been carrying on this work silently, anonymously for the last couple of years. Truly commendable! - Sreedhar MA
