JAGRITI now in Newspaper's

In less then a month of starting Jagriti an article about this awareness initiative was published in one of the reputed newspaper of India. An article about Jagriti was published in Hindustan Times Lucknow edition on 23rd April. 





The Article read :-
Unlike others of their age group, vacations after class 10 exams are a busy period for these lads of the city. Making plans, convincing people, collecting funds, drafting posters to sensitise people against terrorism is their  agenda.
Amritanshu Jaiswal, Aayush Rastogi and Apoorv Trivedi all of 15 years of age have initiated an awareness campaign ' Jagriti ' to sensitise people against terrorism.Aayush, the brain child behind the idea says:"I read about the Afzal Guru and Ajmal Kasab in the newspapers. They should get the strictest punishment by law for the sake of those who suffered in terror attacks." The young crusaders plan to send the collective opinions of the people against terrorism to the prime minister.
Discussing about the initiative, Amritanshu said:"We are busy collecting postcards with statements of support from the people. We are also trying to strengthen our mission by inviting supporters through social networking sites and signature campaigns."
Busy motivating people to raise their voices against terrorism and unite them for the cause through their blog and messages, the boys have succeeded in getting many supporters. The team now includes15 active citizens including lawyers, retired teachers and other government officials who have extended support and joined the campaign. The movement initiated by Anna Hazare against corruption that united the entire nation recently has acted as a catalyst for this young team that seeks support of active citizens for the cause of the nation."No matter how long the journey is, but there is alway's a first step towards it. Our effort is just like that," says the leader of the group.
