NGO- Non grudging organisation

During my course of interview in SPJIMR, we veered into discussion on NGO's work in India.With due respect to their works, I took an offsensive stance against joining them for my livelihood. Question put forth to us was: "In 2008, the placement committee in SPJIMR will stop inviting corporate honchos and only call NGO to campus for placmenents. If that is the case, will you opt to join this institute or not?". I said I will not go to NGO for my livelihood. I have my own vision and I dont want to be in draining side of resource, thats is NGO who need corporates to sponsor their program. I wish to be in corporate side which sponsor the NGO work.
Well, thats impression in my mind about NGO till now. On hindsight, I found NGO are the only things which work in India. They have volunteered to take a call to serve back their society. Its not a draining resource kind of work, but a real constructive deal. I am planning to put in honest efforts this month to understand some of their work, align with them if it fits my idea to serve society. I will write more on my efforts later also. Now time for action.

When the student is ready the teacher will appear.
The teacher does not come to those who need to be convinced. Let them go to the preacher. The teacher is for those who believe and are ready to take the steps to fulfill the promise.
I am ready for NGO work. Where is my teacher? :)

NGO are doing some useful work, but its not black and whyte, there are cases when NGOs have guzzled funds and misapporiated them like in nagaipattanam after the tsunami. ngos have also been used as vehicles to propogate christianity like world vision.

ngo do manage to do some good, i think u shud do a lot of research about the NGO before joining them. dont be in a hurry. this is frm my experience of working with an NGO

over here NGO are held on leashes by the government. while they do their work sometimes, most of the times they eat people's money too. there is no trully perfect system. but then again we are he to work towards one. whatdya say satu?

@gp... Nothing is perfect in this world bro. Hv a heard abt this incident in mumbai - government want to know what ppl think abt corruption and called for public grievance meeting. planned for more than 1000 people and they hired a big hall for the discussion....but at last only 50-60 guys turned up to talk abt corrupt officials and they r all old~ People know everyhting in world is corrupt and we basically learnt to live with it....
