News Desk, News Nation 360 : Sanmarg Foundation organised their 16th edition of Ram Awatar Gupt Protsahan 2021, the only award ceremony in India where students are felicitated for their excellent performance in Hindi. This award ceremony is an initiative of the Sanmarg Foundation to generate awareness amongst the youth on the importance of Hindi. Keeping the current situation in mind the event was held in a hybrid model at Hindustan Club, Kolkata. This year also saw the first-ever Siliguri edition and a very successful South Bengal edition. Ruchika Gupta, Director, Sanmarg & Trustee, Sanmarg Foundation said while speaking to the media that the aim of this award is to encourage students to do well in Hindi. And they have succeeded in their mission, to some extent. The award has helped increase the percentile of marks across the boards. In 2006-07, the highest used to be around 90-92. Students are securing even 100. Students interested in pursuing higher studies in Hindi can apply to their foundation for scholarships. They would be delighted to help them. This pandemic has

seen a baseline change in the education system, with schools closed, and the teaching system online. Consistent with this new normal, 30 students from various boards (CISCE, CBSE, and W.B Board) were felicitated in this award ceremony. These 30 students were selected from amongst 5000 + entries on the basis of their Hindi scores as well as extra-curricular in Hindi and assessed by our jury. There were 13 toppers students from each of 10 and 12 of the 3 boards- CISCE, CBSE and West Bengal Board who had been selected. The 1st and 2nd toppers from each of these boards were given scholarships from Sanmarg Foundation. Since there is no on-campus class now, most of these students, who don’t have access to a smartphone or a computer, are missing out. The Sanmarg foundation has decided to give needy students tabs.
