Learning is an ongoing process, which has nothing to do with age. Whether you are four or you are forty, you are always keen to learn something new. Drawing inspiration from this, Suryadatta had launched its 2nd batch of English speaking & Computer awareness programs offered voluntarily to Auto Rickshaw Drivers & Housewives free of cost.
This training programme for a batch of 80 persons, comprising 40 auto rickshaw drivers and 40 housewives started in January 2011 and completed successfully on June 24, 2011.
On this occasion, Mr Sanjay Chordiya, Chairperson, Suryadatta Group of Institutes, said, “In the 21st century, knowledge of English and to be able to converse in English is a necessity rather than the need of time. The response to the programme was tremendous from both rickshaw-drivers and housewives and we are awarding certificates to 80 candidates of this programme.”
Certificates were distributed to those who have successfully completed the programme at the hands of Shri Baba Adhav, President of Rickshaw Panchayat & Shri Jayant Umranikar, former Pune Police commissioner and Shri Deepak Shikarpur, who were present as Chief Guest and Guest of Honour respectively.
Shri Jayant Umranikar said, “Women are the backbone of family system yet their education remains neglected most of the time. Now days English has become common language for communication. Dr Sanjay Chordiya has always been ahead in undertaking such social initiatives. This initiative by an education institute will help our society go ahead and keep pace with time.”
Shri Baba Adhav said, “Rickshaw drivers always aspire to learn these skills but most of the times cannot make it either due to financial or time constraints, or even both. But by offering these courses free of charge, Suryadatta has not only provided a helping hand to them but also awakened their learning spirit. I congratulate Suryadatta for this innovative and useful activity.”
Shri Deepak Shikarpur said, “With globalization everything is becoming high tech” English speaking and Computer learning is the need of the hour. And hence Suryadatta started this initiative of offering this training to various communities of society in a row. Suryadatta is getting overwhelming response to it.
A housewife is life and blood of the family. Her role in the family is as same as the heart and brain in the human body. A learned and trained housewife can bring in health, happiness, soundness and satisfaction to the family in all the respects and facets of life. One such family into many such families will go a long way in building a developed society and nation. Suryadatta has taken one such initiative to train and impart learning to this vital element of the society.

Senior citizens started communicating with their children abroad with the help of knowledge of Computer, Internet and English language.
