AINAA Motivators: Learn and Teach – Session 1

Dear All,

In the series of the AINAA Motivators: Learn and Teach, we share the pearls of wisdom from our Alumni Sumit Baranwal. Sumit is from JNV Gopalganj and Darbhanga, and he did his MSc (integrates) from IIT Kanpur. Currently he is working as a Unit Head in Analytics.

Sumit is someone you go to when you think life is tough, and you are drowning. Not only this guy is great at boosting morals and to help you get some perspective, he does it with smile and with patience. You would hardly find him frowning. Insider info? He laughs on his own jokes. Since he is so beloved, we don’t judge him for that. Please watch the video to get your dose of positivity and motivation.

You could also send your suggestions to us, and we will be happy to receive them. We would like to do the best thing possible from our side for the progress of our JNV family.

Your suggestions and feedback are welcome at (

AINAA : Consistent learning, an essence of life!

Dear all,

AINAA has always been working for the bright future of JNV students because nothing brings more joy than watching the ones we love to learn, grow, and flourish. Many of the alumni are working continuously in this direction. While we must experience few things first hand and we will make our own mistakes, there are some mistakes we don’t need to make because our elders have walked through that path and paved the way for us. Academics or otherwise, we have a plethora of experience between the alumni network. And we believe that sharing of this knowledge and experience will be extremely helpful not just to the current students but for many among the alumni as well. Life is not just about the tangible things we achieve, it is so much more than the wealth and the position we achieve. A meaningful life is one where the happiness and prosperity trickled down to others as well.

With this view, we plan to share the success, struggle, and motivational quotient to all of you. From time to time, we will share the stories of our alumni who are thrilled to share this with us. Along with this we also plan to share the science classes on Zoom (for class 10th) and class recordings for Physics, Chemistry and Maths (for class 11th). Also, we have WhatsApp groups for specific subjects where students can directly ask their queries to the alumni.

If you have suggestions, or you want to give input on the content please let us know via email: or WhatsApp. Keep watching this space and walk with us through the progress of our beloved Alma Mater.

Shweta Sharma,

कोरोना: एक भय!

अश्क़ है ये,
आपसे फरमाता है।
श्रमिक-बंधुओं की ,
देख, दुर्दशा पछताता है।।

द्वंद है, या विष?
मन सोच सोच अकुलाता है।
लाकॅडाउन, के विस्तृत रूप मात्र से,
ही मन विचलित हो जाता है।।

समाधान यही है बस,
इसलिए, हर पग पथ पर बढ़ता जाता है।
कोरोना के बढ़ते कहर देख,
हर साँस भी भयभीत हो जाता है।।

संपूर्ण विश्व नतमस्तक पड़ा है,
भारत शान्तिदूत बन खड़ा हैं।
उनकी अपेक्षाओं स्वरूप,
स्वंय पीङित हो,
अपना हाथ बढ़ाता है।।

We are re- blogging about AINAA.

What is AINAA?

AINAA- All India Navodaya Alumni Association, is a platform to encourage efforts aimed at “giving back” to society, navodaya and humanity by the members of Navodaya family. We promote all such endeavours which strengthen the family bond, knotted by the AINAA members bringing the alumni, teachers and students under one “umbrella“.

Every individual has some idea to do good for the society. Listening to them and if found useful, helping individuals to enterprise is one of our aims. AINAA promotes yoga, creativity, value education, use of teaching aids in education, conducting workshops to train teachers and support students etc. To provide access to resources, we follow the concept of globalized teaching whose major task includes connecting all the students to all the teachers and alumni of navodaya so that talented teachers and alumni can help all needy students. AINAA gives the platform to the students where they can look for solutions to their problems and seek career guidance or roadmaps for their future planning.

There are so many persons who have recently worked for the association with strength and wisdom. Suffice it to say that the growth of our association has been the work of many loving, caring navodaya alumni. We have grown from a small group representing a true national level association with a wonderful representation from all the regions of our country and abroad. When I think of the growth of the association, I am really impressed. Of course this has all become true because of the devoted and long-lasting efforts of many alumni who gave their precious time to thrive and fulfill its early mission.

It would not be feasible and appropriate place to name those wonderful people who have helped and are still helping AINAA grow what it is today, but I would like to mention one name here. Shri Rama Rao sir was the Joint Director of academics (NVS, Delhi) at that time when we presented our idea- “give back to Navodaya” back in 2003. After listening to the proposal, he just said “I was waiting for you people only…Welcome back!!!” and this was the beginning of our role in navodaya vidyalayas. One very eye-opening statement was given by him in our Kanpur meeting – “I don’t feel proud of the number of IITians and IAS we produce, I am proud of those only who can live for others!

Serving others is “our Culture”, caring for others is in “our Nerves” and living for others is “our Mission!”

On behalf of AINAA, I would like to express gratitude to all those who guided and nurtured us, directly or indirectly, during this gestation period and with whom we plan to take our society into a new future.

Hami Navodaya hon…!!!

फ़ैसले की घड़ी!

WhatsApp Image 2020-04-08 at 12.12.01 AMफूंक दी ख़ुद की हस्ती को,
सब ओर अंधेरा कर डाला,
सबकुछ पाने की लालच में,
ख़ुद को ही मैला कर डाला;

कभी ये मांगा, कभी वो चाहा,
कभी छीन लिया कुछ अनचाहा,
सपने, हसरत, इक्छाओं के,
जंजाल में ख़ुद को यूं बांधा;

अंत तक निचोड़ लिया,
हर अंग को मरोड़ दिया,
अनगिनत लिप्साओं के लिए,
धरती का सीना कोड़ दिया;

धरती मां के सीने में हमने,
कितने खंजर घोंप दिए,
फ़िर अपने सारे पापों को,
उनके आंचल में पोंछ दिए;

वो चीखी भी, चिल्लाई भी,
पर एक ना उनकी चलने दी,
अपने तमस की चिंगारी में,
सारी धरती यूं जलने दी;

वो ममतामयी भी क्या करती,
हर जुल्म हमारे सहती रही,
पापों का कब घड़ा भरे,
इस आस में चुप सी बैठी रही;

लो आज घड़ा भर आया है,
अब पाप चरम पर छाया है,
धरती मां के आंखों में अब,
एक ख़ून उतर सा आया है;

अब धरती ने हुंकारा है,
जाने कैसा ये नज़ारा है,
कहीं आगजनी, कहीं तूफ़ा है,
कहीं बाढ़ तो, कहीं पे सूखा है;

मानव मानव को लील रहा,
ये कैसी प्रलय की घटना है,
हर वक़्त यही सब सोच रहे,
कब, कैसे, मुझको बचना है;

मातम बिखरा हर ओर यहां,
भारी विपदा घिर आई है,
सन्नाटा हर पल चीख रहा,
अब मानवता थर्राई है;

हम जितना चाहे भाग लें अब,
चाहे ख़ुद को कितना बांध लें अब,
पैरों से धरती खींचेगी,
फ़िर ख़ुद में सबको भींचेगी।।

दर्द माँजता है!!

On behalf of AINAA, we congratulate Ranvijay bhaiya for his book “Dard Maanjta hai”!

‘दर्द मांजता है’ एक कथा संग्रह है! इस संग्रह में लगभग समाज का हर चेहरा मौजूद है। ‘मेरे भगवान’ में सामाजिक मूल्यों का विकास है, वंशी लाल जैसा भोला चरित्र है, वहीं ‘छ्द्म’ में रंजीत दत्त के छल , खल की पराकाष्ठा है। लातूर भूकम्प के भयावह विभीषिका के दर्द के बीच मे विश्वास और प्रेम का नन्हा बीज उगता है, ‘दर्द माँजता है’ में, परन्तु ‘एक तेरा ही साथ’ मे नायक के विश्वास का हनन हो जाता है और ततपश्चात प्रेम की उदारता और उदात्त स्वरूप दिखता है। ‘वंचित’ का नायक अपने ऐश और मौज के लिए जो व्यूह रचता है, उस मे वो अपने को स्वयं फंसा हुआ पाता है। ‘परिस्थितियां’ त्रासदी में उपजती कठिनाइयों और मानवीय क्षमताओं के बीच संघर्ष और संयोजन की कहानी है।‘ट्रेन, बस और लड़की’ का इंतज़ार नही करना चाहिए, क्यों कि एक जाती है तो दूसरी आती है, आत्म सन्तुष्टि के इसी दर्शन को ये कहानी साकार करती है। सरकारी व्यवस्था में व्याप्त चापलूसी, अकर्मण्यता तथा नियोजित भ्रष्टाचार का चित्रण है ‘राजकाज ‘में। ‘कागज़ी इंसाफ’ नियमों, कानूनों की अव्यवहारिकताओं तथा व्यवस्था पर प्रश्न उठाती और दर्द उकेरती है।गांव में ज़मीन हड़पने के दाँव -पेंच, बिखरते मूल्यों के बीच घटित एक बर्फ सा ठंडा और मीठे ज़हर का बदला है ‘प्रतिशोध’में।

Dear All,

On behalf of AINAA we feel overwhelmed to inform you all the whole hearted response we get from Navodayans for Blood donations at various places of India.
