This is Team jijau.com asking for the information [About jiaju- mother of Shivaji Maharaj] to be put on our site www.jijau.com.
What and Why is www.jijau.com?: Its portal aiming at 1) Information about Masaheb Jijau 2)Rural Education and Development [Probably under the umbrella of jijau.com foundation]
[Because Ma-saheb Jijau is an undisputed source of inspiration for every one, she was the first lady who dreamt about the "Swarajya", She is the one who gave birth to a great king Shivaji Raje who gave an unforgettable history and many more things to Maharashtra. To make her dream of 'swarajya and surajya for all' true, having movement like this in her name [we think] is an appropriate step! ]
How are we going to do it? : We want the information on jijau to be authentic, unbiased and fact based. We believe in the power of collaboration and democracy. So we won't restrict the content development up to us [The jijau team only], we will call for the content [Stories from life of jijau, articles on jijau and Shivaji raje or Sambhaji raje, Poems, paintings] from every one willing to do so. We will review the content for the correctness by the person who knows the history very well and only then the content will be published [with due credits to the contributor!].
The Rural Education and Development part will cover the government facilities available to the rural areas [some times for the urban too]. It will always have updated information on educational scholarships available to the students [Rural and Urban]. This will be one point global contact for the schemes like donate computer/book/clothes [new]/adopt children for education etc. Our offline team under umbrella jijau.com will do it [Obviously you can also do it in your region, we will happy in seeing you become part of this].
If any money comes from this portal; it will be completely used for the education of the poor [from urban too] and rural children deducting the maintenance of the site [Hosting charges] .We will be happy for working with any NGO wanting to take their work online here at this portal. We wish to have some plans in free health services also. Also we will like to make it a portal of the people who are working individually or in small groups at their regions in similar areas of the rural empowerment [To inspire others in doing the same things in their areas].
