Social Touch And Reform
With the blessings and token monetary support of Humanitarian as well as kind-hearted two ladies Senior Citizens Smt. Anupama Das of Baranagar (Kolkata-36) and Smt. Bharati Mallick of Gariahat Road (Kolkata-29), some Service-holders of Govt. & Private sectors, Business-class persons, Pensioners, Agency workers, Self-employed Person, Private Tutor, and some house-Wives, – all they together initiated this Organisation ‘Social Touch And Reform’ that started rolling on Social Work field in January 2005 and that still works determinedly with its very limited Resources. Although this NGO had to bid goodbye to those two ladies Senior Citizens who already have left this human world. Now we carry their Inspiration as Candles in the never-ending ‘Relay Race’ of Social Work; we Float as Streams on a sea of Social Work as their Inspiration flows as current and sparks us to move more and more.
It is this NGO’s Recreational cum Educational ‘Haawa Bodal’ part (helps to study the People’s Socio-Economy).

The Curse against Social Development
What is the need for having Social Works’ Organisations, if Social Good exists in all phases of daily lives of people? Basically it‘s the duty of the Govt. to provide Comforts to the people of Civil Societies through Govt. Departments & its own-staffed Civil Bodies. General Realisation is that : Basic Needs of the People are Food, Shelter & Clothing, while Extended Basic Needs mostly demand Education & Health. In all corners of the world, it’s the real that, when the Govt. of an underdeveloped / developing country feels financial stringency to provide the Basic Needs / Extended Basic Needs to their people, — there arises the Appeal of that Govt. for the NGOs to cooperate; as the NGOs in need sacrifice mainly with their volunteering manpower which directly saves the monetary expenditure of the Govt., and secondly in need, the NGOs spend their owned Fund (money that have earlier been created collecting from people / Private or Govt. bodies). Thus in many countries NGOs work as Supplementing Bodies of the Govts.
Govt. creates Offices in multi-disciplinary fields to provide benefits to the Civil Societies, decentralises Administrations where necessary through Corporations / Municipalities, spreads itself in Rural Sectors through the system of Panchayatiraj. To hold all these Establishments by a Govt. after a certain boundary when is realised much Expensive, — urge for the NGOs then understood. But misery is, nowadays many corrupt Politicians control / create NGOs cloudily and paw on Govt / Corporate Funds which actually had been for Peoples’ Development. Thus although there are vast fields awaiting Social Development, honestly-working NGOs can’t get Fund from Govt / Corporate bodies. Nexuses of Corporates with corrupt Politicians are alarmingly increasing too.
Black Ghost in Yellowish Mustard. Some of The Well-Known Facts :
- Advocates of Courts of Laws in India do not normally give you any Receipt as Fee / Services against your Payment(s) to them.
- Though you pay, yet won’t get Physician’s Receipt as Fee / Services in India normally.
- In India, Eminent Personalities / Celebrities normally give False / Untrue Statements favouring Corporates’ Businesses.
- Politicians’ Candidatures / Nominations Submissions before Election Machinery are not normally questioned, although submitted statements made therein on Education, Wealth etc. are known as False / Untrue.
And the Truth is that almost all they, mentioned above, hide their actual high-volume of yearly Income before the Govt.
On the other pole of these Dishonesties, Depression encloses ‘tiny-sized Non-Governmental Organisations’ if not such NGOs show their inflated Returns (Income & Expense) which only is the Criterion to Survive creating Projects / bringing
new and new Programmes through getting Govt. / Corporate FINANCES.
For Social Development everywhere in India, The Govts / Corporates should prefer the Honesty to work and not the only Hulk.
