Krishna Bhati: Face of Indian education recognised at UK House of Commons


Krishna Bhati, an avid educationist,   honoured at 3rd Global League Institute Certification at the House of Commons, United Kingdom for her exemplary contribution in the field of education. The distinguished forum was presided over by Baroness Sandip Verma, chair of UN Women National Committee United Kingdom, member of the European Union Committee.

While addressing the forum, Mrs Krishna Bhati, Principal, then heading Maharaja Sawai Man Singh Vidyalaya said, “Education must be holistic by integrating head, heart and hands as these youngsters will foster a humane society. Our children have picked up various art forms and we showcase the creativity of our children through exhibition, whether it's blue pottery, textile designing, wood-work, sculpture-making and many such art forms”

Based in Jaipur City, a place of heritage, she conceptualized a framework called “five ‘E’s in Pre-vocational SUPW ( Socially Useful Productive Work ) classes”. As she explained, “We start with the first ‘E’ where we get the children to explore through orientation, whatever possible vocation, whatever possible craft they can relate to, and once we get them to explore various crafts we get them to exchange ideas and that gives us the second ‘E’. The third ' E' is for exposure to work under tutelage of various artisans where children learn how the artisans earn. Then comes the fourth 'E' where students pick up skills hands- on from the artisans & their work which becomes Experiential Learning. Finally, the fifth 'E' brings them to the point of Exhibition of their handiwork culminating into Heritage Education on the Ramp.”

She propagates heritage art as an essential component of Skilling India through vocational education in schools. Her expertise lies in integrating various art forms into mainstream school education.

Krishna Bhati has been recognized as an educationist par excellence through numerous awards and accolades. She was bestowed with the prestigious “Rajasthan Gaurav Award” for demonstrating excellence in school leadership in 2016 and felicitated by H.H. Rajmata Padmani Devi of Jaipur. The school under her headship was ranked “No. 1 in Leadership” in the country in 2015 by Education World Magazine. She has worked in the leading schools of the country demonstrating her ability to achieve student learning outcomes, accelerate institutional growth and pioneer innovations in teaching-learning processes. She is passionate about making education child-centric, highly inclusive and value driven.

1500 jobless people to learn RO servicing and repairing work for free





At least 1500 jobless people will learn RO servicing and repairing work free of cost, thanks to Indian Health Bureau’s recent initiative. The organisation has already trained 50 people and is now preparing to scale it up to 1500 people across Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore.


Indian Health Bureau is a not-for-profit organisation working towards improving the health status of people in India. To this end, the organisation is involved in spreading health awareness, bringing in positive belief and behaviour change in the society, and in helping people make the right health choices. Further, it not only helps patients identify and connect with medical experts and institutions, but also provides them logistical support.


Taking about the initiative, Programme Director Kumar Sushant, says “The novel coronavirus disease has left hundreds of businesses closed, and thousands of people jobless. Many people are finding it hard to make ends meet. There is  no  certainty that  people  will  get  their jobs back, and if at all they do, it is difficult to say when. It is therefore imperative that people learn and develop additional skills as early as possible, so that they can fall back upon other means of earning in case one doesn’t work out. The free RO water purifier repairing and servicing skill development programme is an attempt to encourage people to think and act in this direction.”


Other than repairing and servicing, the programme will also teach them how to assemble ROs and other water purifiers so that they are in a position to start their own businesses. “The market is big. India Water Purifier Market Outlook to FY’2025 reports suggests only about 12% people are using some kind of water purifiers purification system. Low cost options and awareness can encourage people to think about water purification. Water at many places is not very clean and people may need to adopt preventive measures to keep water-borne illnesses at bay,” says Sushant.


Also, it is imperative that people make the right choices. Often, people are known to install water purifiers without finding out if they actually need them. People should know that for every litre of pure water that an RO purifier produces, it discharges about three litres of waste water.


Accordingly, a single residential society of 2000 apartments with an average consumption of 30 litres of water per day per household wastes nearly 2 lac litres of water every day. It is easy to imagine how a large number of societies and households in a city put together might be wasting huge volumes of water every day, every month and every year. This may be playing a significant role in groundwater level depletion. Worryingly, ‘Fifth Minor Irrigation Census’ report states that the groundwater level in India has declined by 61 per cent between 2007 and 2017.


First, people should not waste this water but use it for washing, gardening and other purposes and second, they should install RO purifiers only if it is absolutely necessary i.e. in the event of Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) of the tap (input) water being at least over 500 mg/L if we go by recent National Green Tribunal order that bans use of all RO purifiers, wherein TDS in the water is less than 500 mg/L of water. It merits mention here that not every household may need an RO purifier, even UF and/ or UV based water purifiers can do the trick. If the TDS is below 200, boiling of water is enough, aver experts. “The people who we are training will be encouraged to pass on this information to the general public”.


The training will be given both online and offline as the lockdown and restrictions relax further.
