Science Forum – Valedictory

Learning science is not just a classroom learning bound within the four walls,we have to learn from Science herself through experimentation,and interacting with fellow science students. Thus Christ Junior College has provided us a platform to share our ideas. Science Forum in these two years has laid a strong foundation that will help us to do better in all our endeavours.

Ernest Hemingway once said, “It is good to have and end,to journey toward,but it is the journey that matters in the end”. Thus in order to cherish the journey, Science Forum organized the Valedictory Ceremony on the 12th of December in the quadrangle. The ceremony started off  with the invocation song., followed by the annual report read by Nishanth Reddy. Fr. Biju, Vice Principal addressed the gathering. Few students shared their experiences of how they had engaged themselves in Science Forum activities such as the lecture contest, quizzes, model making competitions and debates. A video presentation and a discussion on the darker side of science  was followed. Students who worked hard for the Association were felicitated. The programme ended with the vote of thanks.

The journey we had in CJC is definitely going to be cherished. All is well that ends well.

Magnificat- A Song Of Hope

“Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before! What if Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store. What if Christmas…perhaps…means a little bit more!”
– Dr. Seuss, How The Grinch Stole Christmas

Christmas is a festival calling for joy and cheerfulness all over the world honouring the birth of Jesus Christ. To celebrate this, the Christ University Choir presents Magnificat, a three day Christmas themed choral concert featuring choirs from all over Bangalore. The Christ Junior College choir is one of the many to perform.

This event takes place on 5th December from 5 PM in the Kengeri campus and on 6th and 7th from 6 PM in the main campus.

SHARE WITH THE NEEDY

And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to me.’
Mathew 25:40
All of us responded to this call and went for a visit to an orphanage, Bala Yesu Bhavan on November 4th 2014. Spending a day with those little beautiful children was such an amazing privilege that we all received.

Fun Time

We prayed together, spent time playing games such as passing the ball and bombing the city, dancing to action songs and conducted activities to bring their talents to light. The best part of our experience was when we spoke to them personally and when they shared their thoughts and ideas. I personally felt joy in my heart when I saw their smiling faces even when the whole world considers them to be unprivileged. Their beautiful smiles had the power of converting all sorrows into joy, all tensions into peace and all defeat into victory.

Initially we went there to meet them and spread the love and a part of the privilege we have. I felt that I am going to do a noble deed when I visit them and give them what I have. But when I was about to return from that place, I realized that I wasn’t the privileged one and who was going to gift them something, but they who gifted me so greatly. This time when I visited the place I did not feel the joy of giving but the ‘joy of receiving’. When I saw them I realized that I was so much poor in front of them. I realized that I was empty handed and sought their help and inspiration. I learnt from them to stay joyful with whatever I have, to live with everyone in harmony and peace and also to love without conditions. The experience that I had with them is not just expressible.

CBO Exposure Visit

Sexuality doesn’t determine personality. The LGBT population in our country is constantly threatened by rigid social norms and the society’s narrow mindset. They are vulnerable to discrimination and stereotypes of sorts that hinders their individualistic development. People have not openly accepted them yet, though there has been a change in perspective regarding the acceptance of an individual’s sexual preferences. But it is not enough if only a section of the population understands this minority and supports them. Everyone needs to come together to support them because we are all born the same and they are not to be considered abnormal under any circumstance. To infuse these thoughts in us, CSA or Centre for Social Action department of our college arranged a visit to Samara, a CBO in Jayanagar, Bangalore, which supports this community. A group of around 50 inquisitive students visited the CBO with the hope that they would know more about this section of the society and that this visit would help them form a clearer perspective of this minority. We were welcomed into a small room where we were made to sit. Just as we settled ourselves, the president of Samara, Sonika, a transgender, came in to address us. She explained to us, patiently and in detail the problems that their community faces and what the CBO is doing to help out. The orientation was in Kannada and was translated into English for everybody’s convenience. The talk was an eye opener for all of us. It helped us form a clear perspective and the way we perceived the presence of these individuals completely changed. Our hearts reached out to them as we were told how they were mistreated. The only way they can earn their daily bread is either by begging on the streets or through sex work. They are prone to life threatening diseases like AIDS and due to lack of proper health care, their lives are completely ruined. The CBO works towards giving them all necessary facilities for proper healthcare and raising their status in society. After the talk, we were allowed to question them and all our queries were answered to our satisfaction. We concluded with a plea from the community to spread the message that they are also like us, born the same way we are and live the same way we do. Sexuality is natural and it is inhumane to discriminate on the basis of something that nature has given us. With these strong words and the will to stand up for the LGBT community and support them, we left the CBO office with a completely new and positive outlook towards life.
