SIX YEARS OF ASHWAMEDH GROUP
On 1st August 2016 Ashwamedh Group will complete 6 years. The history behind formation of Ashwamedh Group and it's journey till 1st August 2014 was written in my post 4 years of Ashwamedh Group two years ago. So I will start from there.
A conglomerate which will work in various sectors wiz. Media, Education, Finance and Social Work was the vision behind forming Ashwamedh Group. Accordingly Ashwamedh Kalamanch (later merged in Indifame media pvt ltd.), Ashwamedh's Knowledge Centre, Ashwamedh Financial Services and Ashwamedh Foundation were formed by us. The progress of these organizations and the work done by then etc.is already covered in the above mentioned post. The activities and projects done by Ashwamedh Foundation are available on our Facebook Page and Ashwamedh Foundation website. So I won't share that too. I will rather share the lessons I learnt in last two years.

Casteism in Cartoon Show
After DD Rangoli I didn't changed Channel today and kept watching the next Program 'Chulbuli Filmein Chatpati GapShap'. It's a television program for Children in which many animated stories are shown .Anchor gives some Morale lessons between two consecutive stories.
Today there was one STORY from Vikram aur Vetaal series Based on Casteim which really pissed me off. After narrating story Vetaal asks Vikram 'From the FOUR men, which Man was chosen by Princess for her marriage?' and then Vikram says "Princess should marry the warrior as Rajkumaris should marry Warriors (Kshatriya). Rest three men were from Brahmin, Vaishya and Shudra Vanshas so Princess should not marry any of them.
I wonder in which century we are living? Do these Executive Producers watch the Episodes before telecasting them? What do you want to teach children through such Casteism based Stories. Shocked to see such Episode on NATIONAL Channel and that too in Children's Program, Shame of Doordarshan. Disgusting !
