Thought Process- Optimum Utilization of Resources
Integration between resources and required services leading to Community Development
I Dr. Panckaj Garg, Founder & Advisor of India's First State Private Women's University "Jayoti Vidyapeeth Women's University, Jaipur" sharing outcomes of University Thought Process Lab for Community Development.
The Jayoti Vidyapeeth Women's University established in 2008 by Govt. of Rajasthan in rural area of Jaipur Rajasthan University is offering almost all disciplines i.e. Ayurveda, Homoeopathy, Yoga & Naturopathy, Physiotherapy, Medical Lab Technology, Optometry, Radiation Technology, Pharmacy, Humanities, Education, Poly Technique Education, Journalism, Food & BioTech, Law, Science & Commerce and Management (except Modern Medicine & Veterinary Science which are likely to be started very soon).
Thought Process: How to integrate the University resources (Infrastructure & Human Power) providing required services for nearby villages.
1. University AYUSH Hospital: University is having Multispeciality 100 bedded AYUSH Hospital of which 60 beds are for Ayurvedic treatment, 20 for Homoeopathy & 20 for Yoga & Naturopathy with well developed OPD, IPD, Operation Theater, ICU & all diagnostic facilities. University is having team of 60 post graduates AYUSH doctors in different specialization & enough paramedical staff as per norms of Ministry of AYUSH, Government of India.
Integration: If the University AYUSH hospital is declared as a referral hospital and 5-10 Primary Health Centre (PHC) from nearby areas are handed over to our hospital then our medical staff can give their contribution to Primary Health Centre (PHC) and patients from nearby community annd also accidental patients on Highway (Jaipur Ajmer Express way) could be reffered to university hospital and may get benefited with medical Services immediately .
Win Win Situation: With this Integration nearby population will get immediate treatment without any delay and our medical teaching staff can be involved in social duties/responsibilities during their free duty hours and students will get more practical & clinical exposure thus University resources will be utilized for community development.
Government may also give us an opportunity to run free Dispensing Centre for distribution of Modern Generic, Ayurvedic & Homeopathic Medicines, Vaccination Centre, Diagnostic Centre at our hospitals without any investment and also organize camps & rallies creating awareness of Government health policies and health awareness programs through our students in nearby villages.
This is a working and very relevant model and it may be implemented to all AYUSH Medical Colleges/Universities by the Government following our achievements.
2. University Agriculture Department- University established in rural area and as per demand of female students from surrounding areas, University started Agriculture discipline in year 2015. University have well developed department with equipped laboratories, teaching & technical staff as per ICAR norms.
Integration: If Government can hand us over 30 hectares Barren Land "Banjar Charagah" for adoption then it can be converted into lush green & fertilized land by using latest technologies & with the help of faculty members and students of the University Agriculture Department in couple of years, which usually takes at least 15 years to convert into productive land through plantation and fodder cultivation..
After developing the barren land Government acquire the developed land and can provide us another Barren land for development.
In addition, Government may also use University resources like Soil Testing lab, Food Testing lab, Agriculture Consultancy & Training Centre to facilitate nearby rural population for improving the crop productivity.
Win Win Situation: After converting barren land into productive land, there will be huge production of fodder which can be provided to the cattle, cow sheds and veterinary clinic can be developed for abandoned animals. For this our agriculture teaching staff can be involved in social duties in their free duty hours and students will get more practical exposure and better understanding of their curriculum including research work.
This is a working model and it may be implemented to all Agriculture colleges/universities by the Government after our success.
3. University Teaching Education Department- University having modern laboratories and teaching staff for M.Ed. B.Ed, BA.B.Ed, BSc. B.Ed. programs as per NCTE norms.
Integration- If Government hand to us over 5-10 schools for quality education and declare them as a practical exposure centre of the University where every Saturday classes will be conducted by our senior students and teaching staff to facilitate the students of these schools in different subjects and through Skill Development and Computer Education etc.
Our staff will also interact with the school teachers to teach them latest teaching tools including ICT to enhance their knowledge. Our students can also be involved in various Government education policies/scholarships and door to door campaigning as a volunteer.
Win Win Situation: With this Integration, School staff will be trained with modern teaching Methodology and Technology. Our staff can be involved in social duties in their free duty hours and our students will get more practical exposure for better understanding of their curriculum of Teaching Methodology.
In addition, Government should also start Teacher Training Centre, Skill Development Centre & Distance Education Centre in schools of nearby villages & Panchayat Bhawan with the help of University resources for community development without any investment .
This is a working model and it may be implemented to all universities/Colleges by the Government.
We appeal to Government , If they are agreed with the thought process outcomes of our University, then they can utilize our resources (Infrastructure & Human Power) to make such success stories. If success stories comes then it should be implemented to all academic institutions to provide real practical exposure to the students & optimum utilization of resources which will lead to fulfillment of Hon'ble Prime Minister's dream "Beti Bachao- Beti Padhao" including University Mission "Education For Community Development".
