A demonstration of student’s project has been underway in Dhanwate National College, Nagpur since 26th September. The campaign has been underway since last couple of weeks in the College regarding inclusion of names of Tukdoji Maharaj, Gadge Baba and Panjabrao alias Bhausaheb Deshmukh, founder of Shri Shivaji Education Society in the list of Rashtrapurush.

The campaign has been divided into two phases. In the first phase students were to speak extempore for two minutes each, about the three great men mentioned above in front of fellow students and general public. This was followed by signing a voluntary declaration addressed to the Chief Minister that ‘the names of Tukdoji Maharaj, Gadge Baba and Panjabrao alias Bhausaheb Deshmukh should be kindly included in the official list of Rashtrapurush’. The result of the first phase was seen as hundreds of signatures were collected by the students in the process.

In the second phase, the students were asked to create physical models, based on some concept of their choice, but, related to the work of Tukdoji Maharaj, Gadge Baba or Bhausaheb Deshmukh. In the week that followed, more than fifty students got involved in the campaign though ten teams. The students not only came up with physical models but also a theme behind it. Once the display opened for general public, the students enthusiastically and tirelessly explained their respective themes to whoever visited their model.

The campaign has been brainchild of Dr. Rajesh Timane, Head, BBA Department, Dhanwate National College, Nagpur who has been ably supported by faculty, Ms. Priyanka Wandhe. All the students involved, faculty and head of the department expressed their gratitude towards their ever inspiring Principal, Dr. B. B. Taywade for his constant support and encouragement. The Principal has been talking with all the teams throughout the campaign, boosting their morale assiduously, correcting their mistakes and suggesting suitable corrective actions. The above-said campaign will continue by the end of the year wherein the last phase is scheduled between 20th to 27th Dec’2017 as 20th is Gadge Baba’s Death Anniversary while 27th being Dr. Panjabrao Deshmukh’s Birth Anniversary.

This drive has been initiated under Vivekananda Leadership & Innovation Centre newly established in the institute. The objective behind such initiatives is to try to achieve transformational learning by providing support to the students; and at the same time, challenging the students by providing application oriented real-life learning opportunities. For better learning, along with teaching, research also plays an important part; with additional factors such as quest for understanding, spirit of enquiry, freedom and truth. This has been the latent and potential motive behind promoting such activities informed Dr. Timane.
