Kolkata: JAIN Online, the eLearning arm of JAIN (Deemed-to-be-University) in collaboration with Royal Enfield, organised a thrilling yet altruistic bike event titled “REJOICE ’23” on International Human Rights Day. REJOICE ’23 is aimed at supporting students of Shri Shri Sharada Vikas Ashram O Seva Kendra in their higher education journey. This distinctive rally, a blend of the thrill of biking and a commitment to a noble cause saw passionate bikers from Royal Enfield and learners of JAIN Online convening at the picturesque Princep Ghat, nestled alongside the serene flow of the Hooghly River in Kolkata.
The event commenced with an energetic photoshoot and a detailed briefing on ride safety measures, along with emphasising the significance and mission of the rally. Seema Vikas Gadiya, a representative of JAIN Online, expressed, “At JAIN Online, our commitment extends beyond providing quality education. It is about illuminating bright futures. Today, as we ride for a noble cause to support the children of Sri Sri Sharada Vikas Ashram O Seva Kendra, we exemplify our mission to empower through education. We are immensely grateful to Royal Enfield, the esteemed bike brand, for their invaluable support.”
The bike rally was flagged off by Subhashish Goswami, Inspector of Police, Rapid Action Force, Kolkata Police. Led by the Royal Enfield Team, the rally made a brief halt at Azad Hind Dhaba for a refreshing tea break before heading to Prantik Resort for breakfast and lunch and engaging activities organised by Seema.
The bike rally then unfolded at Sri Sri Sharada Ashram O Sevakendra, where participants were greeted with awe-inspiring performances by the students, who showcased their talents in singing, music, speeches, and martial arts. As a gesture of support, JAIN Online representatives distributed sponsorship certificates to 30 children to offer them free education for undergraduate and postgraduate programmes upon completion of their senior secondary education.
Royal Enfield’s East Zone’s Zonal Ride Coordinator, Romit Ghose, while telling the significance of the mission, said,” This mission sums up our dedication to noble causes, and with JAIN Online at the forefront of providing top-notch online education as our partner, we have the means to achieve the mission’s goals effectively. The partnership between Royal Enfield and JAIN Online aims to harness the collective efforts of the motorcycling community to provide education to bring positive change among deprived students. This initiative is a means of bringing empathy and goodwill into practical action that makes a real difference in the lives of those seeking assistance.
Dr Raj Singh, Vice-Chancellor JAIN (Deemed-to-be-University), said, ”This noble pursuit encapsulated the adrenaline rush and a shared expedition of backing and unity for the young talents of Sri Sharada Ashram in their pursuit of higher education. Joining forces with Royal Enfield for REJOICE ’23 signified a substantial leap forward in our dedication to empowering resilient children through education. Their potential is limitless, and our sponsorship underscores our steadfast dedication to preparing them as future leaders.
