At WFUNA's "Mission Possible" project in Jaipur

March 11, 2015: Both Monday and Tuesday (March 9 and 10) turned out to be unusually busy days.
With Andrea Choi and Bonian Gulmohammadi
I landed in Jaipur on 9th morning by flight from Bengaluru. I hate morning flights but had no options since the officials from WFUNA - Bonian Golmohammadi, Secretary General, and Andrea Choi, Education Officer - were on a week long trip to India and Nepal. They had included Jaipur in their itinerary on my request. Their flight was scheduled to arrive in Delhi at 8 AM hence I took an early morning flight.
The WFUNA officials were in Jaipur to initiate the “Mission Possible Project” which is one of the latest projects of WFUNA. “Mission Possible” is an innovative education program that aims to create global change agents by training and empowering youth on important development issues.
With Irina Garg and Shailendra Agarwal
The students will not only gain a “UN perspective” on global issues but also learn invaluable skills like project management. This would equip them with requisite skill sets and enable them to implement projects in their community in a far more efficient manner.
Through “Mission Possible”, the students will become effective change agents and ideal global citizens.
With Suman Singh and Surya Pratap Singh
On Monday (March 9) evening I hosted a dinner to meet and greet Bonian Gulmohammadi who is my colleage in WFUNA and also the Secretary-General. The dinner was well attended and about 75 prominent individuals of Jaipur attended the dinner which was an early evening form affair.
On the 10th morning, we met the Chief Secretary, C S Rajan, Government of Rajasthan, and had a 45-minute meeting in which we discussed various possibilities to work in Rajasthan. The Chief secretary briefed us about the different state projects and government priorities.
With Aakriti Periwal, Ayush Periwal, Jayshree Periwal, Bonian Golmohammadi and Andrea Choi
On 10th evening, Jayshree Periwal, a well known educationist and the woman behind Step by Step School hosted a dinner for us at Hotel Rambagh Palace. It was a informal get-together at their popular restaurant Steam. This restaurant is well known for its Italian pizza and pasta.
With Princess Diya Kumari, Bonian and Andrea
After dinner at Hotel Rambagh it was 11:30 PM when I dropped in for another private dinner at the Chinese Restaurant in Hotel Holiday Inn.
Today is a tad easy so I finished up with some of my pending meetings in Jaipur. Tomorrow I am planning to have a day trip to Salasar.
