Every sixth person in the world lives in India;
Every sixth Indian lives in the State of Uttar Pradesh;
Every sixth person in Uttar Pradesh lives in Eastern U.P;
And Mijwan is in Eastern Uttar Pradesh ;
And Mijwan needs you…
Kaifi Azmi, whose 12th death anniversary falls this Saturday, lived his life as per his verse.
Great authors have immense compassion in their hearts, sometimes far more than what they share or reveal through their writings. Even in severe adversity, they never turn bitter, instead exhibit a profound capacity to understand ‘conflicts’ which help lay bare eternal truths of love, life and laughter with sublime clarity.
Hindi films too have been blessed with several outstanding poets like Sahir Ludhianvi, Shailendra and Kaifi Azmi who not only rendered universal truths in magnificent poetry but also dissected myriad emotions with great empathy. What is highly commendable is that even within the limitations of time and musical structure of a film song, they always provided spiritual, social or cathartic insights into ordinary and individual moments, inspiring generations. Divinely ordained to write, these writers were fine human beings who never compromised with their muse and never wrote a crass line on any occasion.
Slowly and steadily, Mijwan Welfare Society is succeeding in bringing quality, modern and higher education closer to Mijwan Girls. Recently, Mr. Basudev Yadav - the Secretary of UP State Education Board, who had expressed his willingness to help Kaifi Azmi Girls Inter College on earlier occasions, visited the College at Mijwan on an official trip. He was accompanied with a high level delegation that included District Inspector of Schools - Azamgarh.
Mr. Yadav was impressed with overall development and progress of Kaifi Azmi Inter College, its infrastructure and its record in academics. He assured the Staff & Students to accord recognition for Science for the college. MWS was pursuing this issue for long. He, himself, suggested that Music should, also, be included in the recognised subjects for the students. He instantly instructed DIOS-Azamgarh to initiate the process without any further delay.
It is with great pride that we announce that close on the heels of our very successful Men For Mijwan Fashion Show in Mumbai on 1st April 2014, The Mijwan Collection by Manish Malhotra is being showcased at IIFA ROCKS in Tampa USA on 24th April 2014.
Leading Filmstars from Bollywood such as Anil Kapoor, Sidharth Malhotra and Sonakshi Sinha will be walking the ramp for Mijwan Welfare Society showcasing the exquisite chikankari of Mijwan women in ensembles designed by Bollywood Designer and Couturier Manish Malhotra. This wonderful collaboration is not underlined just with financial investment but also the time spent on refining and reviving the art form. A craft that has been around for years is being brought into the limelight by giving it a characteristic "nowness", reflecting Manish's signature contemporary design aesthetic.
The 3 day IIFA Awards are recognised all over the world as the definitive Bollywood Bonanza a global movement spearheaded by Indian cinema. Mijwan Welfare Society will leave behind its footprints on the Opening Night of IIFA and generate awareness and support for the need to empower our villages in India with a focus on the girlchild.
3 outfits worn on the ramp will be auctioned at the show. All proceeds will go to Mijwan Welfare Society.
“My self is all to me. I don't have any need of you.”
These lines form Joyce Carol Oates came alive when a new avenue of income for the women of Mijwan started last week. They have started making Incense Sticks (Agarbattis) to sell in the market with the help of Dr. Azmi & Mr. Shamim.
Initial target is to make 300 packs of sticks, which will later on be at large scale. Our women could get upto Rs.10,000 p.m.
Mijwan women are very happy & hopeful for the success in future.
