Saraswati Sanman (Educational Awards)

A Levels- Best achievers awards

Tuesday 01st September 2015 11:16 EDT

Article 13 of the United Nations' 1966 International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights recognizes the right of everyone to an education. Education began in prehistory, as adults trained the young in the knowledge and skills deemed necessary in their society

It has been argued that high rates of education are essential for countries to be able to achieve high levels of economic growth. Empirical analyses tend to support the theoretical prediction that poor countries should grow faster than rich countries because they can adopt cutting edge technologies already tried and tested by rich countries.

In the Indian culture Saraswati, the goddess of knowledge and arts, represents the free flow of wisdom and consciousness. Saraswati is the daughter of Lord Shiva and Goddess Durga. It is believed that goddess Saraswati endows human beings with the powers of speech, wisdom and learning. She has four hands representing four aspects of human personality in learning: mind, intellect, alertness and ego.

A level Examination results have been declared and almost 400,000 students have received their grades.

Karma Yoga Foundation would like to honour and award a token of appreciation to the best achievers, irrespective of religion, caste or culture to students from the Indian sub-continent (Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka) settled in the UK.

The following cash awards would be given:

  1. £ 2500.00 to the best achiever ( Total £2500.00)
  2. £ 1001.00 each to 3 achievers (Total £3003.00) and
  3. £501.00 each to 5 achievers (Total £2505.00)

Together with Mr. Kanti Nagda, one of the Trustees of Karma Yoga Foundation, three eminent independent Judges will be appointed and their decision would be final.

You are requested to send in your nominations by 25.09.2015 to:-
