Girish Mudigere: We try as team……every person is important,Dinesh Sir….really appreciate

Guru Poornima: In this way we are getting benefitted morally as a Team

Girish Mudigere: 😊👍🙏 As i was dreaming to decentralize responsibilities….. Sunita Ji from Muscat created a wonderful team of internet web based management. If others interested kindly inform one of us.I will discuss with Yogish face to face on this team before he leaves to USA mid of second week August

Guru Poornima: 👍

Girish Mudigere: Team kindly suggest your ideas… Lets implement to grow as team

Srivatsa: How is periscope by Twitter?We should probably find what government schools are lacking.

Their science and mathematics teachers are well up to the mark than convent/private schools

Girish Mudigere: True,Twitter …i couldn’t explore much…..we need volunteers….. Last ts try twitter too

Guru Poornima: Let our communication be laymen friendly and easily accessible.

Girish Mudigere: 👍😊🙏

Dr Sandeep Nayak: Suggestion:

I had put forward this suggestion to Dr.Shalini Rajaneesh (Principal secretary of  health). She appreciated it but I have not followed it up. I will follow it up during September.

Same can be applied to schools.

If a citizen (not corporate) donates to Grama Panchayath, Govt schools or govt hospital where he/she lives, he should be given 150% tax exemption.

This will promote local progressive philanthropic behaviors. This will work better if we train citizens on priority setting, local fundraise skills, current architecture of taxation and utilization of taxes in India and importance of donation and volunteering.

In addition, volunteering should be considered as experience and should help them in building their own career. volunteering should be linked with livelihood for now or future. It’s a win-win situation.

Girish Mudigere: Excellent Dr…..Focus should shift from Money towards service in real sense…….100% free quality education is the reward from  society

Dr Sandeep Nayak: The word free may be confusing and undergo criticism as “freebies”. So, I use the word- public funded.😋

Girish Mudigere: In turn each individual return back to society……front line should never be on front line

In turn each individual return back to society……front line should never be on money

Dr Sandeep Nayak: We need to increase “public funding” and decrease “out of the pocket expenditure” in health/education.

Girish Mudigere: 100% agreed

Linnet D Silva: I liked Dr sandeep suggestion.

How can teachers be motivated to raise their morale. This has lots to do in expecting quality In education.

Girish Mudigere: 👍😊🙏

GI RaviRaj: Anyone suggest me the website me to get textbooks of Karnataka online

Linnet D Silva: Out of school contribution/volunteering is needed but not compulsorily if school system does their job 100 percent.

Dr Sandeep Nayak: D Silva madam,Morality is very vague concept. What we need to improve is local democratic accountability.

Girish Mudigere: Excellent point

Linnet D Silva: Sdmc is one of the responsible democratic body. If it in empowered many problems get resolved. This is my experience.Meanwhile electricity is provided in my school yesterday.

Girish Mudigere: True…they should be constructively active

Dr Sandeep Nayak: You are right. All I am hoping is this volunteering will create sustain interest among citizen and orient them. In our case, volunteerism will (hoping for) initiate awareness and engagement into grass-root movement of citizens’ participation.

Girish Mudigere: Let me clarify on volunteering sir

Dr Sandeep Nayak: SDMC is local dummy body just like arogya Raksha Samithi in PHC. School is not democratically accountable to that. School is state property.

There is distinct difference between delegation and decentralization. SDMC is a body where some responsibilities are delegated.

Girish Mudigere: V true.Exceptions are there…..generally true Dr

Linnet D Silva: Problem with this is in 3 years members finish their term. As they are parents generally they are first generation literates,  most are drawn by teachers and not democraticically elected. By the time they are able to understand their roles they are changed.

Dr Sandeep Nayak: 🙏🏽 Formal training for such parents will help.

Yogish: Good suggestion to get 150% tax exemption as long as it is not misused

Linnet D Silva: I have been working with them. Wherever they are trained and geared properly great positive response is seen. I don’t believe in mere providing things. Though it is needed very much.  Children are nation’s assets and huge resource. Priority should be to build this human  resource.

Girish Mudigere: I agree.More tax benefit attracts more immorality as experience’s

Dr Sandeep Nayak: Thought about it. Yes.

That’s why I said-

– It should be done only where donor lives so that he/she is locally accessible.

– citizens or school authorities should be trained with “priority settings”

Linnet D Silva: Panchayat wise or if city ward wise network of sdmc and panchayat is a great dream. It has to come active.  Provision os basic necessities will be addressed automatically.

Girish Mudigere: More tax benefit attracts more immorality as experienced so far….

Dr Sandeep Nayak: 150% tax exception is not a new concept. It exists in India. Even now, we can claim 50% tax exception by donating to PHC under NHM.

Girish Mudigere: We failed in implementing…..

Linnet D Silva: Taxes should be drawn to government. And spending through democratic bodies. Of course transparency is to be demanded.

Girish Mudigere: We need to find fixes……may be through DS in education

Dr Sandeep Nayak: Just like in many service sectors of Govt.

Girish Mudigere: YesNMMOs may be kind of solution

Dr Sandeep Nayak: State is too big to handle each schools/hospital. That’s where decentralization (not delegation) works and is sustainable

Girish Mudigere: Five volunteers from NMMO can change one district

Linnet D Silva: Kerala has it right. Teachers are paid by panchayat hence under direct supervision and provision of material.

Dr Sandeep Nayak: 🙏🏽👍🏽😊

Linnet D Silva: What is Nmmo

Guru Poornima: Linnet this is our prime concept… As, Non Money Material Organisation.

Girish Mudigere: 😊👍🙏 We prove in JBN……as a working model….others are trying in 7 more locations from our team.40+ Schools here for me a great opportunity to prove our NMMO role

Dr Sandeep Nayak: For sustainability, more and more citizen engagements are needed.

Girish Mudigere: Volunteers are not replacement to paid employees.

Volunteers are full-time job holders with 30 minutes to 5 hours per day focus on improvement of government schools keeping away politics religion and gender

Girish Mudigere: Volunteers are not replacement to paid employees.

Volunteers are full-time job holders as their main  profession with extra 30 minutes to 5 hours per day without money or material benefits having focus on improvement of government schools keeping away politics religion and gender

Dr Sandeep Nayak: You mean keeping away political parties or political process as such?

Girish Mudigere: Five such people can change on locality…..say district……more is better if we can find!!!

Guru Poornima: Volunteers do not necessarily have time…they  just have to work  wholeheartedly….which I learnt from Yogish’s Status.In reality few  SDMC members are politicians who  are not at all active,politics apart we have to build up a rapport and motivate the system.

Girish Mudigere: Very true.Politicians, persons without source of livelihood….. Strong religious persons cannot become volunteers of NMMO

Nagaraj Puttur: ವಿಮಾ ಗ್ರಾಮ ಯೋಜನೆಯಡಿಯಲ್ಲಿ , ಭಾರತೀಯ ಜೀವವಿಮಾ ನಿಗಮದಿಂದ ಕೊಡಲಾಗುವ ಅನುದಾನವನ್ನು , ಪುತ್ತೂರು ತಾಲ್ಲೂಕಿನ ಮುಂಡೂರು ಗ್ರಾಮ ಆಗಿದ್ದು , ಪಂಚಾಯತ್ ಸಾಮಾನ್ಯ ಸಭೆ ನಿರ್ಣಯದಂತೆ , ಸ್ಥಳೀಯ ಶಾಲೆಯ ಶೌಚಾಲಯ ನಿರ್ಮಾಣಕ್ಕೆ ಅನುದಾನ ಬಳಸಲು ಒಪ್ಪಿಗೆ ದೊರಕಿದೆ.‌.. ನಮ್ಮ ಕೋರಿಕೆಗೆ ಪಂಚಾಯತ್ ಒಪ್ಪಿಗೆ ಸೂಚಿಸಿರುವುದಕ್ಕೆ ಸಂತಸವಾಗಿದೆ.

Girish Mudigere: 👍😊🙏

Dr Sandeep Nayak: Girish sir, On liter note:

Answer to bad politics is NOT no politics. Answer is good politics.😊

Girish Mudigere: V true…..i am never against even bad politics or current status of democracy….. Lets improve

Nagaraj Puttur: 👍🏻👍🏻

– Girish Mudigere: Volunteers  should be selfless for few hours…… Lets try to find them.Lets continue journey

Shortly we get breakthrough surely.Volunteering same task without payment cannot sustain long

But our core volunteers are to choose different task everytime ….and few are adequate to do the project

Yogish: Excellent move by Hajabba’s school children and parents 👍I could not meet Vimal Nellyadi as he was waiting for BEO in Puttur when I reach Nellyadi. Let’s try to meet next time.

Girish Mudigere: Yogish….nice thanks for the attempt.Hajabba school should become Highschool.I am taking our mason to nearby schools where small construction activity if possible with available materials……we will see possibilities to add value.He has assured to do at very less price

Guru Poornima: 👍
