Malkapur children parliament members Celebrate Teachers Day with fervor
As it is rightly said that, “A teacher is the heart of educational system”, we the Vimukti children parliament members from Malkapur had decided to honour all the teachers of our school by celebrating teachers day on 17th September, by rescheduling it for a convenient day. All the teachers were present and graced with their presence this gathering in spite of their busy schedule. All the motivational words we used to encourage them and they were very glad that we have come up with this idea of celebrate a day in honour of them. As a token of our love and gratitude we had made them cut the cakes and had offered them small gifts as a sign of love and gratitude from the children parliament side. The local people’s presence added colour to the success of this celebration.

Case Study: True Freedom from Struggle
I am Mrs. Neelamma W/o Mr.Monesha, residing in udbal of Manvi Talukam in Raichur, Karnataka. We live a hard life, which is below poverty line. We use fire wood for cooking our daily food. It is routine job for us to go the fields in search of firewood, sticks etc. Now the fields are owned by individuals and there are no much plants and trees where we could collect the wood. In the rainy season it is very difficult to find firewood. During this season at times we had to go empty stomach to bed. The government has some facilities to such people like us. But our illiteracy and ignorance has made us vulnerable to attain them. We only could implore God’s blessing and mercy upon us.

Case Study: Vimukti finds Shri Devi working gets her readmitted to the school
Shri Devi is from Malkapura village in manvi Taluka of Raichur District. Her parents work in the agricultural field. She left studying when she was in 4th standard. She helped her parents in doing the house-hold duties. Whenever she found time she used to attend the evening tuition classes. She is very charming girl in the tuition centre, where she too motivates other children and shows lot of interest in the tuition. After coming to know her family background Mr. Charlie the Vimukti staff often visited her house. One evening he met the parents in her small house where he persuaded to send Devi back to the school.

From misery to comfort in life
I am Mr. Lalsab, son of Honurasab, completed my 70 years of life and I live in Karabdinni, Manvi Taluk, of Raichur district. I have two daughters who are already married and settled with their families in the neighboring city. I lost my wife when was at the age of fifty. Now I am single, I do seasonal agricultural coolie work and my earnings somewhat sufficient to lead my daily life. Seven years back I had a polio attack and my leg was infected and due to this I suffered a lot. Now I am very weak and not able to walk or even earn for my life. Secondly I have none to support me at this age. Three years back I came to know about the government scheme for which I could apply and get my pension for my sustainability. But I tried more than fifteen times by going to Taluka office by taking with me the necessary documents for approval; Even then I could not succeed in this regard.
