Blind Life

by Vaidyanath Mishra ‘Yatri’

Blind life !
Thou desireth to measure depths with the stick of fondness
Paths, open spaces,
Khut, khut, khut, khut . . .

Blind life !
Stupefied
Then stand-still
At the crossroads of two eras
Lend intently ears of discrimination
To all sorts, all absurdities.

Blind life !
Placing hands on the shoulders of Lame Hope
Where doth thou goest ?
She sings Batagamani.

Why art thou mum ?
Let thou also take up some refrain !

Blind life !
The touch of the soft fingers of Damsel Peace
Makes thee smile and smile.
Sensations of auspicious fragmentary success
Have filled every nerve with fresh excitement
Every part of the body.

Scheme of ICT in Schools during the XI Plan revised

The Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs today approved a Revised Scheme of Information and Communication Technology in Schools during the XI Plan. According to this about 1.08 lakh Government and Government aided secondary and higher secondary schools are envisaged to be covered in the XI Plan.

Imparting of computer literacy and ICT enabled teaching learning, Capacity building of more than 10 lakh teachers in using ICT based tools for teaching, Development and dissemination of appropriate e-content in the regional languages, and A scheme of rewards for teachers and schools for encouraging use of ICT in the teaching learning process are the main component of these schemes. According to the press release by issued by Ministry of Human Resource Development, the schools would be provided the required computer hardware, software and e-content for the purpose. Dependable power supply and internet connectivity, preferably broadband, would be provided to the schools.

It is estimated that an amount of Rs.6926.13 crore would be required during the XI Plan. The actual expenditure by the Central Government would be restricted to the Plan allocation of Rs.6000 crore for the scheme. The funding will be provided on a 75:25 sharing basis between the Centre and the States, except for NE States including Sikkim, where the sharing pattern would be 90:10. Recurring cost will be provided for a period of 5 years from the year of sanction.

The implementation of the two broad objectives of the scheme (a) ICT enabled teaching and (b) computer education and literacy in about 1.08 lakh Government and Government aided secondary and higher secondary schools would help to bridge the digital divide. Priority would be given to educationally backward blocks and areas with special attention on SC, ST, minority and weaker sections and the disabled. Use of ICT in schools is expected to improve quality of teaching learning, school administration and information management system.
All students of Government and Government aided secondary and higher secondary schools (more than 1.5 crore) would be benefitted from the revised scheme.
The existing centrally sponsored scheme Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in Schools is being implemented through the State Governments and UTs since 2005-06. Sanction has been given so far to more than 53,000 Government and Government aided secondary and higher secondary schools for establishing and using enabling infrastructure for ICT based teaching learning processes. A need has been felt to expand the outreach of the scheme. The revised scheme focuses on coverage of more schools, development and sharing of appropriate e-content and capacity building of teachers.
