Letter of the year 2012

To                                                                                                                       Dated: 15.10.2012

Swami Vashishthanandaji


Ramakrishna Mission School, Aalo

District West Siang

Arunachal Pradesh



Sub: Donation: My one month Net salary of September 2012


Revered Swamijji,


Pranam. Please convey the same to all other monastic members who are rendering yeoman’s service to humanity there. Enclosed please find a DD (A/c payee) no: 469265 of SBI issued from Itanagar which is my meager one month’s Net salary for the month of September 2012, which I am donating to RKM School, Aalo, as a token of my heartfelt gratitude to RKM School Aalo and also to the Ramakrishna Mission order for nurturing me to what little position I am in today. Though no amount of money or repayment can compensate for what RKM School has done for me. I hope that you would acknowledge the value of my gesture that is coming out from the profoundest core of my heart. Taking this opportunity, I would also like to express my immense gratitude to RKM School Aalo and all Swamijis and Maharajjis of the entire Ramakrishna Mission order, especially Swami Nageshanandji, Swami Kirtidanandaji, Swami Siddhartanandaji, Swami Gautamanandaji, Samir maharajji, Swami Suviranandaji(my Mentor) and your good self Swami Vashishthanandaji (2nd Swamijji… during our time) for bestowing your blessings upon Arunachal Pradesh, West Siang District, Darka and Kamdi villages and my entire family in particular. Our family today earns the humble distinction of being the most Elite family of Arunachal Pradesh, all because of RKM School Aalo only. My loving and enlightened parents Sri Pogam Padu and Smt. Mongam Padu are also joining me in thanking the RKM School Aalo and RKM order for having extended their valuable services to the family.


I hope, other who have been benefitted by the school, will also follow suit and emulate with the same sincerity and gratitude. It is a fact that if there were no RKM School (Along) Aalo, Arunachal would not have surged so much ahead in all fields in so little a time.


Hats off to RKM School Aalo!


Please accept my Pranams to the feel of Sri Ramakrishna, Sree Sree Maa Sarda and Swami Vivekananda who are the diving guiding lights of the Ramakrishna Mission order in the word.


With regards,

Thanking you


Yours faithfully,

Being a RKM student I always felt the connection and attraction to it. Coming here for official work was warmed by the hospitality and persona of Maharaj and people. School on top of hills among clouds made my mind to go back by good old school days spent at RKM Rahara. The peace serene environment around I felt home away from home. With my heartfelt greetings and respect.









Felt peace of mind as soon as I entered the premises. Good to find such a beautiful, calm & serene place in this part of the country.

Respected Swamiji,

It was a great pleasure being here. The prayer meeting that you permitted to attend was extremely satisfying and gave me a great deal of peace.

The information that you are looking after and educating more than 2000 children here is an extremely pleasant surprise, that such an important educational centre is being managed by over a hundred dedicated educationalists in a remote part of the country is itself a commendable fact. My best wishes to the students and congratulations to you  and your team for the excellent work.

Most respected Swamiji,

Today I visited this great institution to call on you since after my departure from West Siang on transfer I have not been able to visit this institution and inter with the esteemed and learned monks. From the interactions held today it appears that the basic problem  i.e the financial crisis in the management of staff salary and  disbursement of stipend to students still persists. I can assure that when I go back to Itanagar I will appraise the concerned authorities of the state Govt. about these burning problems and seek their consideration. May God give strength to you to run the instiltution efficiently even with such crises and problems in the larger interest and welfare of the people of West Siang as envisaged in the solemn message of Ramakrishna and Vivekananda.

I am very fortunate to visit Along centre of Ramakrishna Mission.

The institution is best of its kind. It is managed most efficiently. PERFECT TIME MANAGEMENT.  I have learnt a few things and have many many more things to learn.

Swamiji’s ideas are propagated in very good way. BEST part which appeals to me is ; one of the Swami goes to the village with a projector, shows the activities undertaken by the mission and also shows some films. The villagers gather in a group to listen these and see programmes.

My observation is that the monks and inmates of the Ashram are over-worked, but they keep doing their part with a smile on their face. HATS OFF.

Respectful pranams to all monks.

This blessed institution has moulded many generations of Arunachalles, who have gone ahead and carved the future of this state. Today , we realized how it has been able to do so… it is the pristine environment, the spirit of dedication and selfless service of  the management and the teachers and the divinity that pervades everywhere in this campus that combine to create excellence. The message of humanity and self-sufficiency that R. k. Mission Aalo imbibes in its students is one that all of us can learn from. We wish all the best to this institution and are truly humbled to have this opportunity to visit here and interact with the management and students.








I feel it privileged and honored to be In R.K. Mission School after 1978. I being the ex-student of R. K. Mission School Along feel very proud to be here again as a minister WRD. During my homely visit to this institution, I found that the same discipline which was in my student life. The Swamiji and Maharaji were kind enough to me & my family members.

I pray the almighty that the institution to go ahead for the betterment of the children as the welfare of the people of A. P.

With best regards and prayers.

I feel honored and privileged to be invited here as chief Guest in the Annual School celebration 2010. This was very first visit to this premier institution continuously engaged in providing quality school  education for last forty years or more. In my interaction with Secretary R. k. Mission School and its principal Swami Vasihsithananda and Ravi Shankar maharaj vote in academic and  co-curricular activities not only at state level but also competed at national level. The product of this school are occupying a high position of power in the state as well as at national level. This achievement could not have been possible without hard works and sacrifices made by Swamiji Maharaj and his dedicated team of monks who have come to Arunachal Pradesh to work for the cause of welfare of our tribal brothers and sisters.

It would be unfair on my part if I do not convey my graititude and thanks to R. K. Mission School authority. Extend my best wishes and pray to God Donyi – polo to give them enough strength for the service and welfare of people of this backward state our country.

All of them must keep it up.

We visited the campus of R. K. Mission here at Along and got inspired with the devoted and courageous service of several sanyasis for the sake of our country men in the remote areas of holy Himalayan ranges. Several thousand students studying here are also getting the divine fragrance of Divine Soul ‘Ramakrishna paramahans and his great disciple Swami Vivekanand. Really it is a remarkable national job, these people are doing with their devoted spiritual lives. I am really happy and encouraged enough, after a short but memorable visit of Ashram.

It is a spiritually uplifting experience to visit the R. K. Mission, to see Sanatana Dharma at its best. The mission is doing yeomen service in the area of education, given that over 2000 students from all over Arunachal here, and important Govt. functionaries today are all alumni from this school. I happened to visit R. K. Mission, Aalo, when school was not in session and could savor the sylvan surroundings and the peace and gust and the natural beauty all around.

May I wish Swamiji, all the monks, staff and the students all the very best for the future.

I am here on duty as an election observer for Mechuka assembly constituency. Today I visited this place and met Swamiji. I understand a lot of about how this school was set up. The growth and the influence of this organization in the educational progress of the state. I could also understand the nature of the local people who though seemingly primitive are very sharp and clever. Unfortunately, I  could not meet the students  due to vacation. I wish to come here again and meet them.

It is a great work R. K. Mission is doing without loudly blowing their trumpet.

A great and spiritually enlightening day. Met the children and gems of this wonderful  school who are doing Yeomen service to society and the people of Arunachal Pradesh. Their contribution in the last years can now be seen the entire upliftment of the society and an entire tribe of Arunachal. I am sure they do a lot more in the years to come for the entire Arunachal and all the tribes there in.

They have put in place a wonderful education system and place properly a model system which could be emulated by others , country over half of the monks who have left behind all their comforts to serve mankind.

Wish could be a part of it.

Personally would like to thank the principal and all the staff for enlightening me on their work here. All the best and will consider myself blessed if I can be of some service.

Thank you. Keep it up

Everyone has seen the line “ Work is Worship” written on the walls but after staying in this Ashram I have understood what is the meaning of the line “  Work is Worship “. No one will believe what a herculean task is been done by the monks here until and unless one personally visits this place. Swami vashishthanandaji mhj has shown me what is actually worship. Me and my family are overwhelmed by the activities of the R. K. Mission , Along. One best wishes.

I heard of Ramakrishna Mission School Along much since long but never had a opportunity to visit and interact with revered Swamijis .  Today, I am happy to interact with them by coming inside the campus.

School has grown old. Infrastructures have worn out. Much need to improve the infrastructures. By school authorities alone can’t do it. Government public had to give contribution physically morally to keep the institution alive and maintain the standards of the school. With present scenario, authority has to manage the infrastructures, fees of the students need to be raised.

I am glad to meet the school authority.

As a long term resident of Mysore, I was a frequent visitor to Ramakrishna Ashrama, an institution for which I have the highest respect and admiration the school at Mysore is one of the finest educational institution I have seen in my life. Ramakrishna Mission has done and is doing yeomen service in the field of education all over the country.

I am particularly happy to learn from the Swamiji that all the 250 seats in the hostel are reserved for Arunachalees. This will find the Arunachalees find the rightful place in the society where for various historical reasons, they have been deprived of good education.

I am delighted and will come back in the near future to participate in the function and spend more time here

When ever I visited Aalo, I never fail to come to this august institution even for a few minutes. My son studied  in this institution. He always tells about the excellent academic atmosphere of the institution. The ex-students of this august institution, I am sure all cherish in their memory their excellent atmosphere of this institution and their association with monks.

It is a wonderful experience to spend four days in Ramakrishna Mission School , Along for conducting the workshop on biodiversity from 2nd to 4th Dec ,2004. The students (the majority of them being students of this school) showed keen interest and expressed genuine concern over the loss of Biodiversity in this State. Their spontaneous participation in discussion is remarkable. During our stay (from 1st Dec to 5th Dec morning)we visited the secondary and higher secondary sections of the school. We were most cordially by the Swamiji of the School as well as the teachers. We had the privilege to attend the assembly and the evening prayers. the ambience of the school, discipline and polite manners of the students speak volumes about the love of Swamijis for these underprivileged children of this state.

The school is undoubtedly one of the best managed schools. The Secretary maharaj and his devoted team of Swamijis have achieved the unachievable success through their selfless service. This is a remarkable success.

I sincerely pray for the school that many more children of this tribal area may feel proud of this school.

I wish school all the best.

When I leave this world I wish to bequeath what remains for this beautiful creation of God to our future generation. To do this, we need to conserve, preserve and love the environment from the destructive model of development. A small step towards this goal is the use of non – conventional energy sources (NCER) like solar energy, bio gas etc. I am glad that this school is already initiated on the subject. It is heartening to note that the school has already produced many responsible citizens. The future of many young children in the able hands of the Swamijis and teachers of Ramakrishna Mission School Along.

I pray for their and brightness of knowledge ahead.

It was indeed a privilege and honor for my wife and myself to be visited to the R K Mission School Along for the Annual Day on the 50th year of RK Mission. The untiring efforts of the Swamijs and teachers/staff of the school in imparting education of an unexceptional quality to the children of Arunachal Pradesh was heartwarming. Quality education supported by the development of the moral fiber of the students as aimed at by the school is the essence for the enhancement of the educative environment in our country. We surely hope that more and more schools would follow this principles.

Even though I came here a number of times earlier while at Cherrapunji and at Narottam nagar, this was for the first time that I could spend six memorable days from 16.1.97 to 21.1.97 , thanks to the invitation of our dear brother Suviranandaji, the present head of this center. This time I came for the Annual celebration which went off very well through the infinite grace of Sri Ramakrishna, Maa Sarada and Swamiji.

I was very happy to see the  remarkable development of this prestigious institution. Further, the Annual Sports meet of the other programmes which are presented by the students were of a very high order. I was particularly happy to see the team spirit in which all have been waking together under the dynamic and able leadership of Swami Suviranandaji.

May this institution grow from strength to strength & produce worthy citizens of our beloved motherland is my sincere prayer to our Holy Trinity.

It has been a long standing desire for me to pay a visit this Ashram having heard that Srimat Swami Vireshwaranandaji  Maharaj, my spiritual Guru visited in 1979. By grace of Guru Maharaj and Holy Mother, it materialized now and I could spend three days in peace of Mind in the Holy company of the dedicated monks of the Ashram though I missed Swami Suviranandaji who was away and I have made and unscheduled visit without prior intimation of the dates of visit in spite of instructions from Swamiji.

It was a great pleasure and privilege for me to go round the various activity centers of the premises though the school was closed for vacation.

The visit to a neighboring village where I accompanied, the mobile medical unit was an exhilarations experience. The whole village gathered to witness the film show and some of the people with ailments had the privilege of medical attention. My only humble suggestion is that some films of education value for the illiterate villagers may be appropriate while preceded or followed by a film of entertainment of short duration.

The premises and its beautiful scenery around is perhaps one of the best and unforgettable environment which helps to bring out the best out of the children studying here.

If it is received with pleasure, non – formal education to some of the adult or otherwise deprived of school education, may be considered if feasible only with an intention of utilizing the trip for medical help. These are only my humble thoughts after visiting the Ashram and knowing its activities.

This visit of mine shall remain as one of the precious experiences to last until I am alive and I shall deem it a good fortune if I can adopt some of the systems of this institution elsewhere if I can help it, and I shall certainly keep the Ashram informed if I succeeded in any such attempt. Invoking the blessings of the trio.

It is great privilege to be D C of West Siang, because of this I got opportunity to visit prestige institute like this “ Ramakrishna Mission”, I heard about R k Mission, I used to visit regularly the R k Mission at Hyderabad, I read lot of books of Swami Vivekananda I saw practically how the Mission is doing great service to the remotest part of this country. I strongly feel Arunachal is peaceful  among seven NE states, because of presence of institution like R. K. Mission, Sarada Mission, VKV etc.

During my stay at Along about 1 year 2 months, I felt homely whenever I visit this institute, I had greatest respect to Swami Suvirananda Maharaj who is providing good guidance to this institute also his hospitality. I pray to God to give good future to this institute also provide good health to Swami Suvuranandaji

By the grace of Sri Sri Ramakrishna atlast the long standing desire to witness the A.P Mission centers was fulfilled.

I left Itanagar at 8 am on7.5.96(Tuesday) with Swami Supriyananda and reached Along at 8.15 pm by the vehicle sent by Swami Suviranandaji Secretary, R. K. Mission, Along. He had made all arrangements for our smooth journey including rest and lunch on the way at likabali with all care and caution. The journey would have been very tiring but the Secretary Swamijis thoughtful and organizing ability. Thanks to the lord for there was no land slide on the way due to heavy rainfall.

We could spend 3 days in Along. The Swamiji in-charge, who has been working here for the last 17 years was extremely kind to take round. He explained in detail the activities of the center. I had the privilege to address the students of the Higher Secondary School, High School and residents of the Hostel. The boys were well behaved and listened to the words of advice with rapt attention. Needless to say that these institutions are very well organized and excellently managed with modern management techniques. The monastic brothers are loved and held in high respects.

We were also taken to the Bene village  in the mobile van on 9.5.96 by Swami Vashisthananda ji who has learnt the local dialect – “Adi”. He is quite popular among the Adi people and converses with them freely as if he is one of the loved family members. We could visit 3 houses with in the available time just to have the first hand knowledge about their life style and also housing plan. An impressive cultural and colourful programme was also arranges in the local community hall.

I am really grateful to Swami Suviranandaji for having made excellent arrangements for our comfortable stay, nutritious and delicious south Indian dishes and valuable gifts. Words are inadequate to express my sincere and heartfelt thanks for the generous hospitality shown to us.

I am sure under his able guidance this unique center will grow from strength to strength and will become like a oasis in a desert.

May Bhagavan Sri Ramakrishna, Holy Mother and our hero Swami Vivekananda shower their choicest blessings upon these dedicated workers, staff and students and dear monastic brothers  -  is the constant prayer of –

I consider myself lucky enough to have visited the Ramakrishna Mission School this evening. I see my clearly the foundation of a brilliant India being laid in the form of charter building of the students here.  The India of the dream of Swami Vivekananda is possible only by Patriot citizens who will never never compromise with the honor of the motherland, who will never bother for self and riches for their own comfort or aggrandizement but, who, every minute will think of and so only for mother India. Only citizen of robust character, unflinching fidelity to the country and a strong sense of service to the countrymen, will lead the nation high with its head in the committee of nations. I am confident, the corrupt and the corrupt persons will have to so and make way for the honest and loyal ones. India, a Bharat will then become a very great nation the Guru of the world in the real sense of the term.

I had a very lively and enlightening discussions with Swami Suvirananadaji  in whose tears – deep tears the love for the motherland and his compatrios can easily be understood in no time. Swamiji’s able guidance is a great asset for the school. It is doing a great service to the nation by building the character of the students.

I wish many more schools like this may come up all over the country and that our national heritage may be protected.

For a long time I had a desire to visit this prestigious institution and at long last the wish has been fulfilled. I had heard so much about the school – what I heard was nothing to what little I had seen today. I had the privilege of joining the boys in the evening prayers. It was a beautiful experience. They sang so well. This school has done remarkably well in field of activity esp. studies. I am sure very few institutions in India can give this type of comprehensive education and produces a well – rounded personality within the ambit of traditional mores. I only wish that Govt. could start such institution all over country would then be bereft of multitude of problems facing it now. I will come again to spend some more time in this school.

I would have to see everybody in this organization every now and then to enrich my life further. Let God bless all in this real work of social and educational reconstruction.

                It is inspiring to see so many young, innocent minds actively following in the training followed by the institution. They are being molded in the right direction in which our forefathers, saints and seers want us to follow. When one sees institution like this one is filled with pride and a sense of purpose. I wish all success to the efforts being made by the institution.


After visiting the Shillong and Cherapunji Ramakrishna Mission Centers (then in Assam) in 1955, I had no opportunity to come to the North – East of India so far though I had cherished the keen interest in visiting the Ramakrishna Mission centres started after 1965 at Along, Itanagar & Narottamnagar(Deomali) in Arunachal Pradesh well known for its green forests and wavy sub – Himalayan ranges and enchanting natural beauty. So ceasing the reasim of the inauguration of the beautiful Sri Ramakrishna Temple at karimganj in Assam on Bangladesh Eastern border north of Tripura, I made a plan of visiting the above centres associated with the Ramakrishna Vivekananda movement after the Karimgang function. Accordingly after visiting several centers in Tripura and Assam, I came to Narottamnagar, close to Digboi, reached via Naharkaatia Rly, sty, and Deomali on the 14th Feb evenings. The Ramakrishna Mission center at N’nagar is huge educational complex catering mostly to the tribal population with about 2000 students. Though the initial 2/3 days were cold, cloudy with drizzles, quickly the weather became pleasant and I spent about 14 days there enjoing the beauty of Arunachlal and visiting near by places – including Digboi, Thinsukhia and Dibrugarh, where also inaffliciated centers are flourishing.

I left Narottamnagar on the28th Feb for Along, apprehensive that it being closer to the Himalayas and farther away in the North – East it may be cold, chilly and rainy. The Secretary Swamij (Suviranandaji ) on getting the message of my coming had sent the Mission vehicle to bring me comfortably from sonari – Ghat after crossing the wide ( about 10 Km – Straight ) Brahma putra river by a stream boat ferry from dibrugarh which takes about 1 ½ to 2 hrs to cross. Starting about 11:30 a.m from Sonarighat in the vehicle we reached at 8:15 pm on the 28th Feb travelling amidst beautiful scenes on grinding hilly road, though it was a long tiring journey having started from N’nagar at 6 a.m.. we were also happy to see the herd of elephants on the hill in the clearing made by Jhoom cultivation about 300ft above in daylight about 5 pm.  2K. m from Garu village towards Along.

After reaching here amidst very good and pleasant weather all my apprehensions melted away like the mist before the Sun by the warmth of reception of our brothers, and the very comfortable arrangements made for my stay and entertainment. It was as if transported to heaven  by the environment, good weather, scenic beauty, and love and care of my brother monastic’s, who are all young compared to my 73 years.

This was not all in the next few days of my stay, I had the opportunity to be taken round the vast educational complex with High School, Higher Secondary School, Hostels, Playgrounds, Librararies & laboratories, art museums & printing press, the well stocked stores of requirements of students like Text book, notebooks, stationery etc. for easy availability, the dispensary, the gymnasium, the feeding place for daily free lunch to students  in the afternoon, the orchidarium, poultry, Apiary, goshala etc and the big beautiful prayer hall in the first floor cum kitchen – dining hall on the ground floor at the top most place of the educational complex, which is situated in a valley with different levels and surrounded in the distance by the hills and the Along town with the building of Assam Rifles on the hill slopes close to Along. I also saw the 60/70 teachers quarters in the Mission area which comes nearly 70 acres.

Visitors here are numerous who have high appreciation for the serene atmosphere of the Mission premises and the highly beneficial it has been doing in the educational field, with high standards, spreading education and elevating ideas and ideals among the people, especially the tribal population. There is also the mobile medical service given to the different tribal villages from 10 to 15 km away 4days  in a week. I had the opportunity to go with the mobile van to kabu village 11km away was very happy to see their houses and meet their men and women folk and mix with the children. It was a very happy occasion for both and they entertained me.

I had also the opportunity to meet some of the military officers and commandants and have lunch with them and also to see a school run by the Assam Rifles. I had the opportunity to give a talk to the staff and teachers  there on our movement and the ideals of the education and the Mission of India.

It is redeement to say that after all these experiences that the Mission center at Along is carrying on wonderful activities of the service and spreading of high moral and spiritual ideas and ideals. That I could notice in the several tribal peoples both common people as well as the educated and advanced men whom I had occasion to meet and talk to. I carry very high and enduring impressions of the work here and my stay in Along for almost 5/6 days and I leave today with happy memories and leave behind my best wishes for the growing success of the Mission’s work at Along  and surrounding places.

Mission School which is unique in its own way. It is amazing how well the school is run in this remote corner of our country. There are no two opinions about R. K. Mission School being amongst the best schools in India. The credit of all this goes to the dedicated selfless service of the monks who manage it and the devotion of the teaching staff. I wish and pray to almighty for their continued success and will always remember, the monks and the staff posted during 1989-91 period and will remember them with nostalgic memories. May the school continue to achieve greater laurels.

After several years of my leaving school as a student, I had a real pleasure to be with children and attend a prayer. I enjoyed a real touch, for the first time, with divinity, which I could not have experienced in most famous temples. It was so serene, so peaceful, so divine to be with the children at prayer. The religion touch and its slow inroads in children will make them real human beings to serve their fellow beings and mankind at large. Educating these children and making them real human beings is the greatest Mission.

It has been a visit full of the rare discovery of the ultimate excellence in education. I am indeed overwhelmed with joy and enlightenment by coming over here.

I do not know what power it was that attracted me and made me select Along as a place to visit on a long needed holiday. Perhaps it was the force of Bhagavan Thakur Sri Ramakrishna Paramahans whom we have revered from childhood. Having seen the splendid work done by Swamiji giving innumerable opportunities to the children of the soil to draw out and blossom their innate talents and turning them into gallant sons and daughters of mother India, I am loathe to go away from this place. I feel like staying & helping Swamiji in preventing many a flower from blushing unseen and losing its fragrance in the hilly air. May the lord God and Bhagavan Ramakrishna help me to do this and provide some justification for my having existed.

I cherish my happy associations with R. K. Mission Along. Although this association is of that duration – but it is eventful in as much having associated with almost all activities of the institution. The discipline of the students of the school was a matter of pride for the district administration. This put Along on the national Map in the field of education. The devotion and sincerity of the faculty members and Swamijis  is reflected  in the grand output in the form of able students – who have shown themselves  in the various fields of life. There is a handful mixture of modernity an ancient in their teachings having passed on to the students – which is a bright spot in the otherwise slightely showed environment of fundamentalism on communalism. Investment of members and the public in the institutional activities is another significant aspect.

I wish all the prosperity for the teachers and students and a phenomenol growth for the institution.

I will cherish with fondness my happy on satisfying association with the institution.

My wife and I visited the RKM School today and were honored by an assembly in the morning by Swamiji, his staff and the wonderful children of this excellent Institution. To say the least, the school is run in an exemplary manner by highly dedicated, honest and qualified staff who are ably guided and directed by Swamiji. What strikes one on immediately entering the campus is the air of discipline and orderliness which is so essential and conducive to learning. The students are highly disciplined, polite and neat in their appearance and habits. The other aspect which is highly praise worthy is the through sense of dedication and professional competence amongst the entire staff, whether teaching or administrative. It is very heartening to see that there are some people in this world who are doing their job so well and unselfishly.

One can easily understand the tremendous hard work and devotion the Swamijis had to exert  to bring all round success of such Institution.

I hope other institutions should follow such discipline, cleanliness and efficiency.

It is indeed very hearting to see that such good work is being done by the mission in remote area like Along. Today India needs badly such Missions not in one or two but in thousands. The missionary zeal with which each one is working be bound to improve the general character of the masses. The change will be brought by the young budding children. I had the pleasure to meet today.

May God bless the mission and the good work it is doing for the halleiment of humanity in general and country in particular.





An institution with dedication imparting education to the tribals with an inspiration in them. Some work seen in the electronic laboratory of small children shows how these boys are picking up with this world. Discipline and maintenance of educational standards is really  worth praising.

A visit to the Ramakrishna Mission anywhere in the world is like a pilgrimage to me – Pilgrimage to the rediscovery of my own self, for sustenance of all the values I cherish. But what Ramakrishna Mission is doing in Arunachal Pradesh is something much greater and bigger than providing individual solace and peace. It is a social and national service, the real work of which is appreciated If we turn our eyes to the turmoiled state of affairs in other hill states of the North – East. Here, the sanyasis of R. K. Mission are trying indepatignely to bring the people of these sequestered valleys to the main stream of Indian National life. The peace that prevails in Arunachal Pradesh now speaks eloquently of the success of the gentle sanyasis are gaining in their venture. No politician, no administrator can achieve this with such short span of time and with so much durability.

Today I had the much associated opportunity of visiting this remarkable institution. Indeed it was a wonderful experience. The institution is playing the key role in the over-all development of the area. I have no doubt that the comprehensive education being imparted here will go a long way in promoting economic growth and national integration. They should also now start laying emphasis on development of entrepreneurial skills among the students so that the new generation is able to avail of the facilities and in continues being offered by the Govt. for self employment. I wish them all success.





Today the 9th day of May 1983, will be remembered by me because of this visit to this institution. It is a rare occasion to have such chances in life to visit such human institution like this. The Swamiji of the institution has definitely devoted his life and work upon the institution. May God bless him and his institution.

I, being a tribal, feel that some more institutions should be constructed among the tribal’s abode so that the slumbering genius could have awaken to the call of the day.

The memory of the visit will be stored in the hidden corner of my heart for the days to come. The light that lit upon the top hill of remote Along “THE RAMAKRISHNA MISSION”, will be seen and adored by every peace loving human.




It has been a pleasure to visit the institution once again after a lapse of eight years or so. A few minutes in the calm atmosphere of the Ashram gives one a lot of peace. It is gratifying to see the growth of the institution and see the children been trained to become good students of model citizen of our country.

I wish the institution the best of luck in their laudable endeavor.

It was a rewarding experience what vision, enterprise, hard work and missionary zeal could achieve. I am sure those who visit this institution would like similar ones to be started in their area.

Ramakrishna Mission will be remembered by the students & visitors alike for its exemplary contribution to the welfare of the society.

It has been a very rewarding experience for me and my wife to the wonderful institution. We were fortunate to attend the evening prayers and go through the exilerating experience of listening to devotional songs so enthusiastically sung by the boys.

R. K. Mission is doing great service to this region by imparting such stirling education to the tribal children. The Mission deserves one fullest compliments and one warm greetings to all the staff and students.

Our best wishes to the school and to all the staff and the students.

A very hearting visit to this institution. I was lucky to come just in time for the evening prayer meeting and I was delighted to see the young students being so helpful to the visitors who were coming for the first time. Later I spent some with the Swamiji of the institution and had a very interesting conversation with him. He and his team are engaged in a really wonderful work in this remote and sensitive part of the country.

I have seen much since my return to Arunachal after nearly twenty years and nothing has given me so much joy – and hope for the future – as this visit to the Mission. Need to say more?

I had the privilege of visiting the R. k. Mission School Along today. I found it to be an excellent institution in respect of inculcating the qualities of head and heart, the discipline among students, the dedication of the teachers in general and Swamiji in particular and physical faculties developed in the institution are exemplary. Such institutions need all encouragement by the state Government.

I had the privilege of visiting the school and being shown round by Swamiji who took as much trouble in showing and explaining every thing. To me however this was not really very necessary after seeing and hearing the morning prayer and national Anthem, there was hardly anything more that I needed to know about the institution. If the face of the man is the index of the man the prayer activity and programme are the index of the school. In fact nothing I needed more at this hour------------- than the ---------------- of some values and virtues which can give strength and creditability to our lives and society. I wish and pray that this school shows light to more and more people – both young students and then parents and families.





Year 1981

I have no words to express how satisfying as visit to R. K. Mission, Along has always been. Today on Buddha Purnima day,  I had the privilege of meeting the monks of the students and witnessing an excellent cultural programme, with an underlying theme of national integration.

The RkM Along, by any standards, is one of the first rate institutions in the country. Given the requisite support of assistance it will grow from strength to strength and will produce not only the great sons of Arunachal Pradesh but of the country.

I can only express my deepest gratitude to Swami Gautamanandaji, the monks & the teachers for the great pains that they are taking to run this institution so well. My best wishes are with the institution.

I had heard a lot about this institution from my colleagues at Delhi. I had therefore decided to visit this institution when I started from Delhi. I would call it not a school but a temple which imparts character building, secularism, national integration and sense of sacrifice. When teaching has become commercial all around, this institution stands as a distinct place catering for something which is needed for nation-building. I wish other trusts/institution take hint from this institution and mould their teachings to their respect of life.

It is always a great pleasure to get away from the routine and spend some time with the Swamiji, monks and the children.

We feel so much at home. Today we planted a lot of trees, Orange.

I had the pleasure to visit the R. k. Mission, Along on 19.12.75. I found the institution very clean and children cheerful. I was thrilled to listen to the chantings and recitations performed by the children. Swamiji and his staff were very hospitable and noble. I hope, the institution will improve further in every respect and shall produce good and useful citizens for the country.
