BUILDING UP EACH OTHER – ONE STORY AT A TIME

Dear fellow change-makers,

We are thrilled to bring to you –  Manch, a knowledge-building platform for individuals and developmental organizations across India.  Through Manch, we are setting forth on a journey of story-telling in a different light while also connecting with each other. We believe that the world deserves more stories of people with courage, positivity and faith and we intend to just the same.

As an individual, influencer and leaders in the development sector, if you have a story, idea, opinion with a dose of inspiration that the world could use, we are happy to share it for you, with you.

Manch is also a learning & networking space with a pool of organizations coming together to share experiences, resources, ideas, mentorship & leadership skills, etc. Our quest is to inspire and build a humbling community of people to share ideas, learn-unlearn and collectively work for a cause. Our work may be shaped differently, but at the end of the day, we symbolise one soul.

This is a small step by Varitra to bring together the NGO community in a binding spirit and reach out to the world through our inspirations, learnings, successes and failures alike.

Happy writing and reading fellas!

Team Varitra

WHAT MANCH IS ABOUT?

We are interested in human-interest write-ups, video stories. We are open to all causes and fields. Anybody with a story is welcome to submit. We especially encourage submissions from budding organizations or individuals with brave beginnings. The pictures shared with the stories should be original, relevant and fit for use.

WHAT MANCH IS NOT ABOUT?

Manch is not a fundraising platform. We don’t promote fundraising events or share advertisements, ambiguous video clips and photographs. We’re not interested in religious or political pictures/write-ups or stories disrespectful towards any person, place, community or religion.

SHIKHNE SHIKHANE KI EK KOSHISH

By – The Eighth Dimension Consultancy

एक सत्र के बाद मैं अपना सामान समेट ही रहा था कि मैंने देखा कि वही अनुभवी अध्यापक हमारी ओर चलते आ रहे हैं | मैं इज़्ज़त में कुर्सी से उठ के इनसे बात सुनने को तैयार हो गया | उन्होंने अपने ही अंदाज़ में अपने सिर के एक चौथाई बालों पर हाथ फेरते हुए कहा, ‘मास्टर जी, पहले दिन तो हमने आपको ज़ीरो नम्बर दे दिए थे | हमें लगा था, जवान लड़का आया है.. कई आते हैं.. ये भी चला जायेगा! सुन लेते हैं!’ सुन के मैं मुस्कुरा दिया मगर वो आगे बढे, ‘मगर जैसे-जैसे आपने अलग-अलग सत्र लिए हमारी ये सोच आपके लिए बदलती गयी | हमें ये एहसास हुआ कि आप अपने craft के मास्टर हैं और अपनी गागर में आपने ज्ञान का सागर भर रखा है | मैं सही में इस बार कुछ नया सीख के जा रहा हूँ!’
