Sri Sathya Sai Seva Organisations
It was a historic moment, in the annals of Sri Sathya Sai Bal Vikas. When the morning of January 5th 2019 dawned, the Divine abode of our Lord and Master Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba, reverberated with the holy chants of vedic hymns by Balvikas from different parts of India invoking Bhagawan’s blessings to herald the beginning of two day 9th Convention of Balvikas Alumni and the 6th Convocation Ceremony. This coincided with the Golden Jubilee celebrations of the Balvikas movement in India, a movement that has spread its wings all over the country, transforming thousands of children through inculcation of human values.
The response to the call given by the Revered All India President was well received by the alumni and the children, by the emphatic presence of as many as 1507 alumni, 1610 gurus, 1175 Balvikas Diploma Awardees and 957 Group 2 and Group 3 Balvikas children, altogether making a mind boggling figure of 5249 participants. The alumni present hailed from different occupations starting from small traders to highly placed bureaucrats, musicians of great repute and scientists of eminence lauding the benefits of Balvikas for its significant contribution in shaping their lives. The presence of huge number of students being conferred the Diploma in Sri Sathya Sai Education and Group 2 and 3 children provided ample proof of its present strength and the prospects of a bright future of the Balvikas movement.
Eminent speakers from different fields like The Hon’ble Education Minister of Thailand, lovingly called as Dr.Judo and the Speaker from the Assembly of the State of Himachal Pradesh Shri Bindal who both profusely praised the contribution made by the Balvikas movement, and bringing out the best of God given qualities in each child, and they also paid rich tributes to its Founder and Master, Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba. Some of the successful alumni gave their vivid experiences while putting into practice the lessons learnt in Balvikas. The felicitation given to the parents of the great Martyr Veer Sri Vijayanand Naik, from the State of Karnataka, an alumni of Balvikas who sacrificed his precious life at such a tender age, in protecting his motherland brought tears to the eyes of thousands, echoing their patriotic sentiments.
The speeches, dance, music and cultural programmes were of very high standard, bringing out the hidden talents in the children. Almost 33 Alumni drawn from the different states of India were honoured with the awards of excellence for their noteworthy contribution to the society made by them in promoting and propagating the Balvikas through their exemplary lives. The food and accommodation provided for the children made their stay pleasant and memorable.
On the whole, the convention was a great success with everyone feeling the invisible loving presence of Bhagawan, which prompted our revered All India President to advise all those associated with the Sri Sathya Sai Seva Organisations to carry forward this Mission to greater heights and bring more and more children to the Lotus Feet of the Lord and make them worthy recipients of His Infinite Grace.
