It was 2018 when a thought evolved into reality with a dream to ensure the continuation of humanity. With the ideologies of Swami Vivekananda and Dr APJ Abdul Kalam, Mr Subhasish Bhattacharjee along with four other members started an organisation called Vivekalam. This organisation works on the issues related to education and health.
From distributing clothes and learning kits to the needy, Vivekalam has moved to major issues such as adult education, free coaching classes for government scholarship exams, free medical camp in rural areas, and developing a society of learning and growing in slum areas. Since its inception, the organisation has been celebrating its Idol Day on Swami Vivekananda and Dr APJ Abdul Kalam’s birth anniversary.
Vivekalam has worked actively on its own schemes such as Gyanada, Arogya and plunged over natural disasters and catered humanity when floods hit the state of Assam last year. The organisation’s funding is mostly fulfilled by its members only. Numerous programs with enormous and selfless endeavour sketched a bona fide picture of them in the lower Assam. Their strength is increasing for the organisation and rising youth involvement has been observed.
On 12th January 2020, Vivekalam celebrated its Idol Day and catalogued an event that was celebrated widely in the rural parts of Dhubri district. Quiz and art competitions, followed by the awareness drive to stop child marriage were included into the archive of the day.
On the occasion of our 73rd Republic Day, founder and chairman of the organisation Mr. Bhattacharjee and its President Ms. Mafida Begum were awarded the ‘Most Popular Indian Award’ by the Assam Book of Records.
The local people and eminent personalities of the state are extremely happy and never fail to honour the members of the organisation. Efforts of Vivekalam are absolutely unexplainable and can be categorised as the quintessence of humanity.
