For most of us, the pity for that kid whose arms are spread beseechingly cannot
outlive the traffic signal by more than a few seconds. Sireesha has decided
to make a life out of getting them out of God's apathy, so isn't Alambana what
you want to do with your life?
Alambana is a social service organization established a month back by D Sireesha,
an ex-employee of Bank Of India. Many daily laborers don't bother about their
children's future, and take them along with them to the construction site or
their place of work to work, or let loose on the roads, hence depriving them
of their right to study and play. Alambana was set up with an intention to create
awareness amongst these people about the importance of education for their children.
Alambana's motto is to identify various slum areas and bring little kids from
there to the organization after convincing their parents, and provide them with
the basic education along with food. Apart from the above, it also plans to
start training classes in stitching and in other miscellaneous jobs for young
Today, the organization is inviting its friends, and will apprise them of its
work. Loksatta Convener Jaiprakash Narayan (a retired IAS officer) will speak
to the audience about the importance of education in children and of Alambana's
objectives, along with Dr N Sailaja, SP of Prohibition & Excise, and Suguna
Mani, Andhra Mahila Sabha Trustee.
To entertain the audience, Alapana, a musical troupe, will present old and new
Telugu and Hindi songs (Paatala Vibhaavari). A dance program by P Venkateshwarlu's
troupe, comprising Snehita, Sindhu, Meenasri, Avanti, Keertana, Sravya, Praharsha,
Teja and Sarvari, will follow this.
