And for the last Friday of this Financial Year…. some thoughts….

In the cacophony of TV shouts and discussions masquerading as Breaking News, we tend to overlook how lucky we as a country are. We have some outstanding Individuals, Organisations, Corporates and Institutions defined by the Indian Constitution, doing yeomen service in Nation Building.



Unemployment and lack of Skilll Development are challenges which can subvert our demographic advantages and the BOSCH team has developed some very unique initiatives.

The BRIDGE programme led by Dr. Goel and his passionate team, prepare young men and women, 18 to 25 years from poor and economically impoverished families, for their First Jobs in Industry. The most important criteria…… 10th standard passed and 12th failed…. the category sociologists classify under NEET…. ‘Not in Education, Employment or Training’.

It’s unbelievable, how in just 12 weeks, these street children become employable…. with relevant Technical, English, Basic Computer and Life Skills, all packaged the German Dual Educational System way.

These young men and women…. the sparkle in their eyes as they take up their first jobs in the organised and semi organised sectors, is truly fulfilling. Job roles as Sales Asst. in Retail Industry, Spare Parts Asst. in Automobiles, Warehouse Asst. in Logistics, Customer Services, Painting Asst., Shop floor Asst. etc. Every Batch 100{aff5a224634bf574f692c8c7d068a0713fecca4ea38a30d3005107227dbb12e7} Job Secured!!!

The proof of the pudding is in the eating. Now the BRIDGE is undertaken in Karnataka, Maharashtra, Rajasthan, Kerala and many many more States & Centres.

Nation building is not being cynical and offering Arm-chair Consultancy; its about all of us getting our hands wet and sometimes dirty too, but getting involved in some way…. the Ethical, Legal, Right way….. the SEEGOS way.
