As far as I know before Bhaswati came to Parijat, there was Promona
Sengupta. She was there when Dhaujee Kelly was at Parijat.
She came to Parijat to teach Art & Painting to the students. Promona was a
B.A final year student from Lady Shree Ram College, Delhi and stayed for 27
This year in March when I visited Parijat, I met an young yoga teacher from
the USA who also stayed a few days at Parijat. Last month two visitors
arrived at Parijat. Antonio Borges from Portugal and Tim Aline Rebeaud from
Vietnam. I have uploaded their images to the Picasa album of Parijat.
I understand that next month Parijat will get another volunteer from USA. I
was corresponding with a Charter Accountant from UK who plans to visit
Parijat in December. He will do volunteering for a few days.
As you can see Uttam is doing a great job. First exposing the children and
the staff to international audience - which itself is unique and secondly
which is also very important - presenting Assam to the outside world -
which, as far as I know, so far none of us is able to deliver. The
volunteers are also "foreign tourist" carrying memories of their stay at
Parijat and Assam.

Bhaswati Bhattacharyya of Guwahati has participated as a volunteer at
Parijat Academy this summer , please find her story
For Bhaswati it was not easy, she has to commute two hours each way to reach
the village Pamohi and Parijat from one corner of Guwahati. But it did not
deter to complete her mission. So far , a number of individuals outside
India and Assam came and participated as volunteer at Parijat including
Dhaujee Kelly from Baltimore, USA, Margaret W. Andrews Vancouver, Canada
and others. Perhaps, Bhaswati is the first local student to serve as a
summer volunteer. We hope that her example will inspire others to follow
this noble and vital service.
