If we have the conviction and enough inspiration, we can turn any opportunity into something meaningful and beneficial for others. And Radhika, a student from Switzerland has set this example.
Radhika first visited Vrindavan in February 2015. When she was at FFLV, she talked to some girls and their perception on getting an education. She felt really inspired and wanted to learn more on the subject about how education can give people a new sense of self confidence.
In Switzerland, to graduate school one needs to write a research paper about a topic of ones choosing. Radhika, 18, who is also doing her graduation from Switzerland took this opportunity and decided to do her research paper on Education and what it can do for an individual. She made a small movie where she has portrayed this and covered life story of girls like Laxmi and Shanti who are students of Sandipani Muni School.
The video shows how important education is for them and what their life could be without it. According to a UN report, India has second-highest number of child marriages. In India, more than 13 million girls under 19 years of age are married. This accounts to 3.8 percent of total married women in the country. Radhika has compared how things are changing with time and FFLV’s education program is not only transforming lives of these girls, but also the thinking of the new generation. In the theory part of the paper, She researched the status of the woman in India since the Vedic age to where it is in rural areas of India today.
Radhika has very successfully portrayed the importance of education in the life of a girl. Here is a link to this very inspirational video: Women in India
