Most Important Decisions
From the beginning,I was averse to the caste system that is still rampant in the Hindu society. I refer to his higher caste Hindu upbringing as "feudal". This sprung the seed of social activism in me.
Tech trends to watch out for
Electronic technology is very much part of the contemporary human lives. It is pervasive, effective, explosive, and accessible which can transform people’s opinion and influence changes in government.
Changes in the industry
PVCHR.Blogspot.com started when hardly any NGO, in India was amplifying its stories/successful interventions through the internet. Internet and other mediums have contributed immensely in different way to strengthen advocacy revolution. All form of information and communication technology including the digital ICT like computer, internet, mobile phone, and ‘new social media’ like face-book and twitter, known as ‘Liberation Technology’ is used by the organisation to seek freedom from discriminations and violence.
Areas for the Future
Nevertheless success of PVCHR employing new media tools is enough to substantiate this fact. Finally it can be said with utmost certainty that the role of new media in communicating the message of nonprofits will increase in coming years (Livingstone and Lievrouw, 2002).
Points of inflection
With his exposure into the mainstream society, I realised that casteism is present in all walks of life. With the Indian Government tackling the issue with its reservation policies and making it perennial, I chose the path of uplifting them by making their voices heard.
A Fine Balance:
With meager resources, but rich with confidence and conviction, I in a short period of time has managed to amplify the voice of the marginalized in national and international fora.Only conviction and confidence are two major formula to manage the challenge.
Buddha was the greatest human the human civilization has ever been produced in the whole history of humankind. Today, even a man of highest rank of imagination can not imagine the social and religious changes he brought about in the whole Asia .
