When Rajesh Achari M started practising yoga at the age of 10, he had no idea he would go so far as to achieve laurels in this meditative art that is immensely gaining ground now. "I was in fifth standard, when I started going for yoga practice in school. Soon, my physical education teacher KS Mohan Kumar asked me to participate in a district level competition saying it would give me some experience. I stood third there but more importantly, I gained confidence and made a start. By 10th standard, I had participated in three national level competitions, securing seventh rank at a competition in Kolkata," tells Rajesh, a second-year BCom student of Surana College, who is also pursuing a diploma in yoga, adding, "The sports director in college Sheethal Kiran presented me with a scholarship and further motivated me to excel in this area.

To serve with love 29.7.2015 Deccan Herald - Supplements
This photograph was taken in 1982, of the class seven students of Cluny Convent High School, Malleswaram. I was a teacher there and have come to cherish my time with the students. The second picture was taken in November, 2014, when nine of them came back to school, after 32 years, to wish me on my retirement. It was heartening to see them doing well in life. I started my career at Cluny Convent in October, 1980. Prior to this, I was teaching at Carmel Convent School, Mandya. I had come to my sister's house for the 'Dasara' vacations and we could see the impressive school building from our house. On my sister's insistence, I met the then principal, Sr Geraldine, to enquire if there was a vacancy. As luck would have it, they were in need of a teacher and I was offered the job at once. That's how I became a part of the big Cluny family. It has been a long and fulfilling journey ever since. This particular batch was my first as a class teacher. Not only did they help me get through classes (as I was new, I ...

Life under the skies 29.7.2015 Deccan Herald - Supplements
The road is their home and the sky, their ceiling — many children live in railway stations, bus stands and markets in the City. They are left bereft of a childhood and the accompanying perks. An average of 25 such children are rescued and rehabilitated to healthier conditions everyday, yet a large number of them are still found in unsafe conditions. Mathew Thomas, the Executive Director of BOSCO, an organisation that works with the young at risk, says that 'unaccompanied children' is a blanket term which includes those who experience homelessness and live on the streets. "They can be children living on or off the streets, child labourers, missing and trafficked children, those who have run away from different towns to big cities, rag pickers and children in conflict with law. While most are homeless, some might work on the streets, with a place to go back to at the end of the day. Rehabilitation measures may vary to certain degrees for such sub-categories." The key rehabilitation technique for ...
