Mr. Arjun Harkauli
Member, Scrutiny Committee Project Eklavya
Project Eklavya was a latent desire among legal circles that has now found
utterance. Legal education and awareness is the fulcrum of our social
intercourse and a guarantee of our political way of life. It must illuminate all
sections of society and empower the weakest.
Project Eklavya is the bridge for meritorious students navigating whirlpool of financial constraints. Its special feature is that it is a merit cum means scholarship unfettered by any sectarian considerations.
It was my pleasure and honour to be part of its Scholarships’ Scrutiny Committee that was firm in its objectivity and expansive in its compassion for accommodating the deserving. As a committee our hearts were saddened to see the dire plight of our bright applicants.
I can not end this without appreciation of Mr. Siddharth Gupta CEO, CAN foundation who could carve and give shape to this idea. It was magnanimous to the donors, Government of Madhya Pradesh, Hon’ble Justice Khanwilkar, Hon’ble judges of the MP High Court and the Vidhan Sabha of Madhya Pradesh to give a grand flag off to this ship on its maiden voyage. I am sure it will charter a greater journey and touch more lives in its philanthropic journey.
