Contribution of teachers and children to the success of state government’s ambitious ‘Padhari Tuhar Duar’ programme has so far been commendable and praiseworthy. With the aim of encouraging and recognising talents of teachers and children of the state who have done such excellent work, a special column called ‘Humare Nayak’ (Out Hero) was added to the online portal of the abovementioned programme under the guidance of School Education Department Principal Secretary Dr Alok Shukla. Dr M Sudhish, Assistant Director, Samagra Shiksha, executed and subsequently run the plan successfully.
Under the leadership of teacher Gautam Sharma, the blog writing work in the Column started in May which has successfully completed the eighth phase on Saturday, January 15. Till now, teachers and students working on different themes have got the opportunity to showcase their talents and become inspiration for others. So far, about 450 teachers and students of the state have been selected as ‘our heroes’. Currently, in order to promote the use of regional languages of the state, blog writing is also being done successfully in various regional dialects of Chhattisgarh from the eighth phase of the blog writing.
So far, blog writing has been done in Chhattisgarhi, Gondi and Surgujia languages apart from Hindi, English and Sanskrit. On the last day of the eighth phase of the blog writing, Hindi blog will be published with translation in the state’s top 5 dialects Chhattisgarhi, Halbi, Gondi, Sargujia and Kuduk, which is a major achievement. On January 16, 2021, these 5 regional dialects were written by teacher Suraj Tiwari of Mungeli district, who wrote and translated more than 300 stories on Storyweaver’s website, and Chhattisgarh’s Rajgit on social media in the student category “Arpa pairi ke dhar” was added to the blog by Dharmesh Das Mahant, a special-needs visually challenged student of Janjgir-Champa district, who has influenced thousands of people in Chhattisgarh through his sweet voice. In this particular blog, the blog will be uploaded in different colors to display different regional dialects.
Both the teacher and the student blog have been written by the blog writer and team leader of the Column, Gautam Sharma from Surajpur district and the translation in Chhattisgarhi being done by blog writer Lokesh Kumar Verma from Raipur district and blog writer Seema Mishra from Baloda Bazaar district is writing in Halbi. The translation has been done by Mahendra Singh Thakur, teacher in Bastar district, Sadaram Dhurve, teacher in Rajnandgaon district in Gondi, blog writer Dharmanand Goje of Surajpur district and Rameshwar Prasad Bhagat, teacher of Jashpur district.
