Volunteer Section

People volunteer for a variety of reasons... religious, social, personal,etc.... but whatever may be the reason you want to volunteer your gracious act would surely transform you and in small little ways the world around you. Volunteers form a powerful group that  organizations leverage to implement projects and create community participation. 'Volunteerism' in today's context is not confined to students, housewives, youth, elderly or any other such groups. It is also the professionals with management / engineering / doctorate background working in corporate houses contributing their knowledge and experience to the social sector.

For those of you who want to volunteer, but have not taken the plunge, here are a couple of reasons why you should get into it right away:

First, volunteering makes an important economic contribution to society. If it weren't for volunteers, many activities would have had to be supported by state or private funding. Volunteering helps channelise these funds into other areas.

Secondly, and perhaps more importantly, volunteering helps build strong and cohesive communities. It fosters trust between citizens and helps develop norms of solidarity and reciprocity, which are essential for stable communities to flourish. Volunteering has its share of delightful perks - chance to travel, meet new people, and acquire life & career enhancing experiences and skills. Volunteering does not require a special degree or prior experience. It is simply a willingness to help. Your interest, skills, enthusiasm, willingness, and commitment are wonderful assets to any organization.

This will be a place where you can volunteer for the skills you have.We may join hands to organise an event/activity around it or approach you to impart knowledge to the desirous. Keep watching and do send in your valueable feedbacks...we'll get in touch with you soon...

Peter J. Chelkowski on Imam Husain

Professor of Middle Eastern Studies, New York University.

       "Hussein accepted and set out from Mecca with his family and an entourage of about seventy followers.  But on the plain of Kerbela they were caught in an ambush set by the … caliph, Yazid.  Though defeat was certain, Hussein refused to pay homage to him.  Surrounded by a great enemy force, Hussein and his company existed without water for ten days in the burning desert of Kerbela.  Finally Hussein, the adults and some male children of his family and his companions were cut to bits by the arrows and swords of Yazid's army; his women and remaining children were taken as captives to Yazid in Damascus.  The renowned historian Abu Reyhan al-Biruni states; "… then fire was set to their camp and the bodies were trampled by the hoofs of the horses; nobody in the history of the human kind has seen such atrocities."
