Suryadatta Education Foundations Wreadathon continues in 2012 as a 9 such Wreadathon in an Academic Year.. i.e. one per month that of 9 hour each..
Centuries ago wise monks and Rushis meditated and lived in silence as they communicated with their inner selves and grew from strength to strength. With today’s pressures and challenges in mind, the Suryadatta Education Foundation is giving their students an opportunity to de stress by staying away from all forms of communication – electronic and verbal, to introspect, create and grow. In the process, the Suryadatta Education Foundation is taking its role as a shaper of tomorrows citizens responsibly.
Prodded by the success of the 24 Hours Silent Wreadathon, 2011, endorsed by the prestigious Limca Book of Records, the Suradatta Education Foundation continues it in a different way this year.
The first of the series of 9 Wreadathon 2012, first session of “9 Hours Suryadatta Silent Wreadathon –Sept 2012” was held on 24th Sept, 2012. Essentially a competition for reading, writing, learning and observing silence for nine continuous hours, it aimed at generation of new ideas, innovation, research and worked towards student enlightenment. Open to students of SIMMC & SIBMTit was held from 9 am to 6 pm on September 24. Suryadatta Education Foundation has planned eight more Wreadathons (one each month) through this academic year.
Held as a holiday for laptops, mobile phones and a way to promote books, letter writing and meditation, it is an effort to promote reading skills, creativity and research capabilities besides boosting spiritual, mental and physical capacities.
Participants needed to be physically fit, 19 years old or more and willing to maintain silence throughout the Wreadathon. They were allowed to bring their own books to read and study, encouraged to write, make poems, draw or write research papers. A total of 200 including students & faculty members, researchers, businessmen, housewives, fellow scholars participated in the event.
To ensure that every participant was comfortable, seating arrangements such as yoga mats, chairs and benches were available at the venue. A certificate of participation was issued to all. Names of students who complete all the 9 hour Wreadathons this year will be sent to the Limca Book of Records for their consideration.
