Chingari Award Ceremony 2011

Chingari Trust proudly announces the launch of the “Chingari Award for Women against Corporate Crime” with its fourth award given on 5th December 2011 at Chingari Rehabilitation Centre. The Chingari trust gives the prestigious annual award to women activists, who have been working consistently for a period of over five years in any part of India, to take up the cause of a community waging the battle against corporate criminal activity.
The award is one of the activities that trust has instituted, along with a livelihood project for women survivors of the disaster and subsequent chemical contamination, as well as a rehabilitation programme for children born with congenital  deformities to gas/water affected parents. The struggle for justice in Bhopal is one of the longest in human history, and it is a rare event to have survivors reaching out to other beleaguered communities in a show of solidarity, strength and faith in collective action.
The award has been instituted for the sole purpose of bringing to limelight the struggle for women who have pitted themselves against monolithic institutions and systems, and whose lives are till now unsung and unnoticed. The first task in giving Chingari Award is to search for such remarkable women who have led a life of relative obscurity, in a remote part of India. The prize include a Trophy and a sum of Rs.50,000. Chingari Trust believes that such awards can inspire and give necessary impetus to a movement. The award is kept non-political, non-sectarian, and tenacity of women who have not given up hope.
The Chingari Trust is proud to bestow the award this year to two courageous women of the Lok Samiti in Mehndiganj near Varanasi i.e. Urmila Vishwakarma and Urmila Patel.This year award was given by the hands  of Rashida Bee and Champa Devi Shukla and Cheque of Rs.50,000 was given by Cheif Guest Mr. Dilip Kumar Samanthray(Principal Secretary-Gas Rahat).  Urmila Vishwakarma and Urmila Patel are recognized for their fight against a multinational goliath i.e. Coca Cola along with  the local Pollution Control Board, Ground Water Authority and Uttar Pradesh State Government swinging between the local vote-bank and a huge MNC’s persuasive power.
Urmila Patel and Urmila Vishwakarma are the leader of Mahila Chetna Samiti in Mehndiganj, which is a part of Lok Samiti. The group has the responsibility of bringing the women for the dharna. We at Chingari Trust have a deep respect for the pain these women along with their group had taken in fighting against the Coca Cola and would always be supporting to all such struggles against corporate across the world.

Relationships are the essence of celebration and it holds true for any Indian festival. Each festival brings the family together which calls for a total festive environment. Raksha Bandhan is a celebration of one such relation - the relation of a brother and a sister.Similar feelings where expressed by the children at Chingari. These special children had put forth an example of cultural, social and historical importance and tied RAKHIS on each other’s hands and shared the sweetness of the relationship of brother and sister. Their way of celebration of the cultural festival was reflecting that disability is not a curse; we can live and survive if provided better facilities and rehabilitation.
