Subject: Fwd: {Mirambika All Parents} Prabhat’s peaceful protest, day 4: school management, please listen to our plea
To: Pranjal Jauhar, kamalamenon, k.jayanthy

Dear parents, school management and the Diyas,

Parent’s peaceful protest led by Prabhat has continued and today is the fourth day. he has spent the last 3 nights on footpath protesting peacefully. We tried to reach the school management, but were turned down, saying only court can decide on 17th june about the school shifting back to the Mirambika building. Many of us parents are not even in court case till now, then why court is being made an excuse here. Why the mangement is backtracking on its promise. We still think we can solve it amongst ourselves as we have been relentlessly trying for nearly 3 and a half months now. Through this protest many of us are demanding an amicable solution to the present crisis which our children are facing due to the shifting. No response has come so far from the side of the school and managment to resolve this problem, till date. We are really concerned why the school and management is behaving like this. Please hear our pleas, the demanded DDA clarification is out through an RTI. A copy of the same is allready provided to you, so now take back the school to mirambika building as promised to us by the management.
We the concerned parents again request with folded hands,
Harsh

Dear Parents, the school Mangement and  the diyas,

Our fellow parent, Prabhat and other parents are on continuous Dharna opposite gate no. 6 since thursday morning, despite of such weather conditions. He has spend last 2 nights on the footpath. Despite his and fellow parents previous numerous pleas, the school management is not coming forward to take us back to Mirambika Building as promised by them, once the DDA clarification is out in the public, which the school management asked us to get based on which they promised us they will shift back the school to Mirambika building, where it was running before 14th April 2015.

Another co-parent, Sandeep Behera has started his 24 hour fast, at the same site, in this peaceful protest to School management’s avoidance of  parents’ anxiety and numerous pleas.
On Behalf of many parents and children supporting this peaceful protest, we once again request the school management to please listen to our pleas and shift us back to Mirambika building as promised.
We request once again with folded hands,
Harsh, one of the fellow parent supporting this peaceful protest

Prabhat is continuing his peaceful protest and is  spending the whole night on the footpath opposite to the Ashram Gate,  as no one in the school management is listening and acting accordingly to our plea , now that the needed DDA clarification has come through the RTI and there is no threat to the school running from the Mirambika building.
The DDA THREAT was the only reason which led to the  shifting, as told to all the parents so many times by the school management and promised us to move back  if a clarification can be received, now we request the management to shift the school to the Mirambika building where it was running before 14th April 2015. Please hear our pleas and shift us back. Please keep your promise and listen to our and our fellow co-parent Prabhat’s plea.
I also request the parent community to support Prabhat’s peaceful protest for this genuine cause.

This is so unfortunate that there is no one willing to talk and resolve the matter. What are we waiting for? The DDA has very clearly told us that there is no threat to running of school from the original premises. Since the DDA threat was the reason, we got shifted, why can’t we all sit together and come to the solution of shifting back to mirambika building and also withdrawing the court case before the next hearing on 17th July. The court and honourable Judge would be very happy if we approach him with a mutual solution. This is a win – win situation for all of us.

Why are we not talking? We have talked to Jayanthi didi and Srila Didi, but they seem to prefer to wait till 17th. The management does not seem to be interested in getting a reasonable mutually acceptable solution, and is keen to fight it out in the courts. Can you really face the kids and look into their eyes and justify this arrogance. Mr. Pranjal Jauhar, I request you with folded hands, to please listen to us and in this favourable scenario after DDA’s clarification, please shift the school back, end this confrontation and work constructively with all of us to achieve greater potential for our beautiful organisation.
With hope and Prayers

  1. Tucch बात July 12, 2015 / 12:22 pm

    यह “Tucch” लोगों का dialogue है।
    तो थोड़ी “Hinglish” में “Tucch” बात हो जाये।

    A fast that is pretty fast…
    Starts after a heavy breakfast, और खत्म before another one…?
    Not a day without food… Forget the liquids…
    अभी शायद Breakfast करके Lunch करने गए हैं जनाब।
    After Lunch will probably start another Fast अनशन ?

    The tents that are really cool and waterproof… शायद imported हैं…?
    Looks like camping is protest and protesting is fashion these days.

    With friends in Media, coverage in Guaranteed.
    Medha ji, Aruna ji, etc. इन “Tucch” लोगों से “Kucch” थो सीखो …
    Yeh Gen-X आपकी भी “Guru” हे… एक Chela तो CM बन गया… यह तो उसके भी “BAAP” लगते हैं !

      Agar baarish se protection chahiye aur tent Lagaaye gaye haen toh issme bhi taqleef hae aapko. Dharna hae and its a platform for different parents to share their views, aur jab log hone toh khana bhi hoga,aur samose bhi. Why focus on tents n food, why don’t you ask us why we are sitting there!

    For a dialog to start someone needs to step back. At the moment this blog is the Achilles heel for the petitioners and their support team. In fact this is also working as the possible cause for hesitancy among many parents who would have joined the campaign otherwise. The continuous name calling and the slanders are not at all acceptable. Some parents, management committee member’s, professional venture or partnership has nothing to do with Mirambika’s current problem. So for the sake of the petitioners it will be better you pull down the blog. For whatever information one needs to post the google group is there.

        Go ahead and negotiate with PJ. Petition can be withdrawn simultaneously with the school moving back to its pre 14/4 premises.

        Plato said that we can know truth if we ‘sublimate our minds to their original purity’. Arcesilaus said that our understanding is not capable of knowing what truth is. Carneades stated that we can never comprehend truth; and not only that, but even our senses are inadequate in assisting us in the investigation of truth. Gorgias said, ‘What is right but what we prove to be right? and what is truth but what we believe to be truth?’

    How can the blog be a reason for parents to hold back…to sit on the fence….to not give an opinion…..to not join the protest….. It’s the children one should think off….. If u can’t fight for them… Then for whom??? Wake up before its too late!
