Ambedkar Jayanti 2018 : Vimukti Pothnal. All we need to know about ‘Architect of Indian Constitution’
BR Ambedkar can easily be remembered as "The Father of the Constitution of India" and the man who fought for the oppressed in the country. On Saturday, April 14, 2018, India celebrated the 127th birth anniversary of Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar. Popularly known as Babasaheb, he was an Indian jurist, economist, politician and social reformer who inspired the Dalit Buddhist Movement and campaigned against social discrimination against untouchables since he was a Dalit too and also supported the rights of women and labour. However, Ambedkar’s importance in Indian history cannot just be limited to a person who championed for the rights of the poor, downtrodden and lower caste people. He can easily be remembered as “The Father of the Constitution of India” and the man who fought for the oppressed in the country. He was the principal architect of our Constitution and a founding father of the Republic of India.

De Paul Institute of Philosophy and Religion kumbalgod Brothers Mission Exposure Programme At Vimukti Pothnal:
Affection and commitment towards social work is the best activity of life. We the Vincentian brothers, currently pursuing our philosophical studies in Bangalore, were privileged to be a part of the Vimukti Pothnal from 3rd to 12th of April 2018. Belonging to a congregation which inherits its spirit from St. Vincent De Paul, it was a rejuvenating experience for us to walk into the life of the people and experience their very state of life. Our mission exposure programme in Pothnal was animated and guided by Fr. Satish Fernandes OFM. When we look into the past ten days, we had a gradual and progressive growth in our outlook towards social work. We were introduced to a number of activities and initiatives that aimed at the betterment of children, youth, women and adults. In our visit to Gangavati, we could witness with our own eyes the functioning of Child Resource Centers (CRC’s) and Youth Resource Centers (YRC’s), run by Capuchin Krishik Seva Kendra (CKSK) in collaboration with Child Fund India (CFI).

Vimukti women take initiative to create voters’ awareness:
Vimukti organized an innovative campaign in Sunkanoor on Saturday when Vimukti women group visited each home and appealed the occupants to exercise their franchise without fail. Amidst hot weather women along with Anganwadi, ASHA workers and the school teachers, visited families and appealed them to compulsory cast their votes in the coming assembly elections. Women walked in the villages and distributed pamphlets among people to create awareness. It is important for voter turnout that local and state voting policies and procedures are public knowledge. Often, voters do not know where, when and how to vote. Public awareness campaigns can encourage voter participation and make important information ubiquitous, thereby reducing barriers at the ballot box. Thus Vimukti spread the public awareness in the villages of our targeted area.
