CHHATTISGARH

A government middle school teacher, K Sharda has never allowed her physical disability to become a hurdle in life. In fact, she has brightened a way forward for her students.

Based in Durg district of Chhattisgarh, Sharda nurtured an idea of creating a ‘happy classroom’, where a mech anism of cumulative activities are evolved. As a teacher, she has encouraged students both online and offline to remain engaged with their studies through a productive learning environment.

She is a resident of a Bhilai town, about 30 km from Raipur, and is a math teacher. When hardly one year old, she was paralysed waist down after being stricken with polio.

माता दुर्गा के मन्दिर में जाने में श्रद्धालुओं को लगता है भय!

दुनिया में भगवान् के प्रति आस्था सदियों से चली आ रही है, परन्तु साथ ही अन्धविश्वास ने आस्था का साथ नहीं छोड़ा है। इसलिए माना जाता है कि आस्था और अन्धविश्वास का चोली-दामन का साथ है। इसलिए आज हम आपको एक ऐसे मन्दिर के बारे में बताने जा रहे हैं, जिसके बारे में लोगों में अलग-अलग मान्यताएँ हैं। कुछ लोग कहते हैं कि यह मन्दिर एक जाग्रत मन्दिर है, तो कुछ लोग इस मन्दिर को शापित मानते हैं। इसके अलावा कइयों का दावा है कि इस मन्दिर में देवी भोग के लिए बलि माँगती है, तो वहीं कुछ लोगों का मानना है कि यहाँ एक महिला की आत्मा का वास है। और न जाने क्या-क्या अन्धविश्वास मन्दिर के लिए प्रचलन में हैं।
