Anuradha Agrawala – The Unsung Heroes of ASER

Every year, as the ASER survey rolls out, everyone excitedly discusses their experiences in the field and the core aspects of what the survey is about. However, what doesn’t get talked about often is what it really takes to get ASER done every year- a giant exercise that involves moving several pieces of paper across India, organizing logistics of snacks and tea at over 550 trainings and countless phone calls to ensure that the survey is being done on time.

img_2921This is Sanjeev, our design team in-charge at the ASER office in Delhi. Sanjeev’s story is not about the children he interacts with as he does the survey or the challenges faced in the field to get the survey done. His stories are about what goes on behind the scenes to ensure that every single format being used for the survey is as clean and simple to look at as possible and that formats are printed on the correct paper size. Sanjeev has worked throughout the night till 6 in the morning on several occasions, working on several urgent documents that need to be put in perfect layouts. Once, he stayed up all night working on survey material, rushed home to pack and met us at the airport to go to our national workshop, ailing with jaundice!! Sanjeev is always smiling and I don’t think I’ve ever heard him complain about what he has to do to get ASER done every year. He is probably the furthest away from the child who ends up being tested in the villages, but has a very sound understanding of what we are doing and how important it is.

Sanjeev is one of the numerous men and women who give up bits of their lives each year to get ASER going. Our full-time field staff strive to personally visit all the districts of their states, to ensure that data quality is up to the mark and not a single survey sheet has a mistake. This means that they don’t get a chance to go home from September to December each year and they live out of a suitcase, working during the day and traveling from district to district at night.

As we near the end of ASER 2016, much appreciation and thanks go to the men and women of ASER who work tirelessly behind the curtains, to tell India how her children are doing every year.

  7. As for the game itself, DOOM Eternal is available now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC, with a Nintendo Switch release coming soon! You can scoop up a copy of the game right here through this link while supporting Prima Games at the same time! Happy hunting, Slayers!  But it looks like things might be brightening up again, as Gordon revealed via an email that he is indeed working on a proper mix of the entire soundtrack, dubbed ‘The Mick Gordon Cut’ by many online. However it does seem that this might be a less than legitimate task, as Gordon said it will be released “sometime”, indicating that he might be doing this in his own free time, rather than by an actual contract with Bethesda. Things get complicated incredibly quickly, and relationships, friendships, and family bonds will be tested as you work together to complete your recipes on time, making it a fun and challenging couch co-op game that will make you truly understand the meaning of “too many cooks spoil the broth.” Boom Beach is another kingdom building game on mobile. Your goal here is to build a base along a beach. Your opponents must then storm the beach and take down your defenses. Unlike most games like Clash of Clans, this one actually has a fairly long campaign mode. That adds another element of game play that most titles in this genre don’t have. Add to that the multiplayer along with co-op missions and this one is deeper than most. It’s by Supercell and thus, it’s really appropriate that a good Clash of Clans style game is by the same developer.

  9. Howdy excellent blog! Does running a blog similar to this take a
    large amount of work? I have very little understanding of programming however I had been hoping to start my own blog in the near future.
    Anyhow, if you have any suggestions or techniques for
    new blog owners please share. I know this is off subject but I simply had to ask.
    Many thanks!

  10. With havin so much written content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism
    or copyright infringement? My site has a lot of completely unique content I’ve
    either authored myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up
    all over the web without my authorization. Do you know any
    techniques to help stop content from being stolen? I’d definitely appreciate it.

  11. I blog often and I truly appreciate your information. This great article
    has truly peaked my interest. I’m going to take a note of your site and
    keep checking for new information about once per week. I subscribed to your Feed as well.

  12. We are a group of volunteers and opening a new scheme in our community. Your web site provided us with valuable information to work on. You’ve done a formidable job and our whole community will be grateful to you.

  13. Hi there would you mind sharing which blog platform
    you’re using? I’m going to start my own blog soon but
    I’m having a difficult time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your layout
    seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
