Silver Jubilee Celebrations
November 2, 2018 - Taj Gateway, Vadodara
Nilam Patel Bahushrut Foundation was founded on 2nd November 1993 and completed 25 years on 2nd November 2018. The Silver Jubilee function was held on 18th November 2018 at Taj Gateway, Vadodara, India. Mrs Tejal Amin, chairperson of 53-year old Navrachana Education Society, graced the function as Chief Guest and HH Maharani Radhika Raje Gaekwad of Baroda was the Guest of Honour.
A short film marking ‘25 years’ journey of the foundation’ was shown. The book ‘Our Journey Through Their Stories, commemorating 25 year’s journey of the foundation and success stories of some of the recipients of foundation’s scholarships, was launched by Ms Tejal Amin, the chief guest. The exhibition of paintings by Nilam Patel was inaugurated by HH Maharani Radhika Raje Gaekwad. The proceeds from the sale of paintings have gone to Bahushrut Foundation.
The function was graced by many dignitaries including Swami Brahmavidanand Saraswati, disciple of Late Pujya Dayanand Saraswati and Mr. Ramesh Oza, pioneer in the field of Speech and Audiology in India.
Happy New Years because that is how I feel seeing the presentation and hearing wonderful work that’s been happening with Bahushrut Foundation as Nilamben described. I think with her drive and passion, she is going to complete 50 years of the foundation. I actually did not know but when I was seeing the film, I identified one of the children as co-student of my daughter from school. I had no idea as that.
The credit goes to the parents but most importantly, people like Nilamben as a school, who allows these children to gain that level of confidence and equal footage in the society. So it’s not just imparting more education, but when you are creating self-confidence in a person and dignity and we need more people like Nilamben because there can’t be a better form of social service that you can do when you are actually creating that level of self-independence. I wish all the best for the future
HH Maharani Radhika Raje Gaekwad
"Celebrating 25 years of Nilam Patel's extra ordinary work! Silver Jubilee celebrations of Nilam Patel Bahushrut Foundation was a delight both visually and emotionally!
Nilamben's expertise and holistic approach as a speech therapist and special needs educator has given voice to hundreds of her students in the literal sense of the word!
Thereby giving them and their families confidence and hope for their future.
The foundation provides scholarships to hearing impaired students for higher education. Happy and privileged to release the commemorative book and view her beautiful paintings exhibition opened by HH Maharani Radhika Raje Gaekwad. Incidentally the show was sold out, the proceeds being a contribution to the Bahushrut Foundation.
Feeling of pride all around amongst Nilamben's friends, children Salil, Shivali, Smita n Guruji and her teacher mentor Rameshbhai Oza. Special joy to meet a Navrachana student who is successfully integrated through her efforts!"
Mrs. Tejal Amin
