Celebrating differences with eminent citizens

We are just back after enlisting 82 Heads of Schools for Adivasi Children to initiate Human Rights Education in their schools. This meant that they first attend an Orientation Programme themselves and then sent one teacher from the faculty for a Three Day Training on Human Rights Education. 96 Teachers attended the three day training programme in 3 batches. And now another 11556 students of 6th class will be doing human rights education along with their other subjects.
On 3rd July we had returned from the Paderu (ITDA) Integrated Tribal Development Agency after having made all the arrangements for the Heads of Schools Orientation Programme in view of taking up HRE in all the adivasi schools run by the government. The programme had been fixed for the 9th July. But on 4th July we were informed over phone to put all the preparations on hold and renegotiate the plans with the Project Officer (PO). It was a couple of days after Cherukuri Rajkumar alias Azad was gunned by the AP Police allegedly in a fake encounter. And in the Agency area every government official is vary of Human Rights of any kind! We were certain that the phone call something to do with killing of Azad. So it was with some trepidation that we fixed an appointment with the PO, Ms.Nirmala IAS for renegotiation.
