Namaskar! Greetings to all CTE Family Members from New Delhi.
This is to appraise you that I am stationed at New Delhi and will be leaving for Guwahati Tomorrow.
On many CTE meetings and NBMs I repeatedly stated that we have 21 CTE state chapters in India but some chapters are not actively working to undertake the noble mission of CTE. Instead of Quantitative expansion we have to now work for Qualitative expansion and it depends how actively we are associated with the noble cause of CTE .In the last NBM held at Pune, a detailed discussion was made and strategies adopted for reorganizing some chapters instead of opening new chapters in India. As a follow up action I have come to Delhi to reorganize Delhi Chapter first and to start the official process for appointment with concerned persons to submit Memorandum on IES.
Friends, I am happy to share with you that the CTE Delhi chapter will be fully reorganized under the dynamic Leadership of Dr. Anju Mehrotra, Principal ,Kalka Public School. Who in spite of administering a number of Educational Institutions in and outside Delhi has actively come forward to revitalize and reorganize DELHI Chapter. My interaction with Dr. Anju made me feel strongly that under her leadership CTE will positively march ahead & Delhi chapter will be launched as per Dr. Anju’s convenience after Dewali, 2013.
I am happy to share with you again that West Bengal chapter is in the process of total re organization under another dynamic Principal Dr. Pradipta Kumar Mishra. I am in contact with him and guiding him in this regard and reorganization will be made in September-October,2013.
A Goodwill mission team comprising top leaders of CTE will visit CTE states like, Odhisa, Jharkhand, Chattisgarh, Uttarakhand, Jammu& Kashmir, Lakshadweep, Uttar Pradesh, Karnataka, Maharashtra Assam and Nagaland for activating and reorganizing the chapter.
Friends, Now, the National Vice Presidents of 5 zones are accordingly:- East zone- Dr. Pradipta Kumar Mishra, 2. West zone- Dr. Shasi Wanjari 3. North zone- Dr. Satinder Dhillon, 4. South zone- Dr. V M. Sasi Kumar and 5. North East zone- Dr. Irom Gambhir Singh.
I am happy to state that CTE Journal which is extremely high standard will be published bi annually in July and January. Interested concerned has to subscribe the journal by paying Rs. 1500/- for three years at a time and then continue the process again after 3 years. If an author’s research based article is accepted he/she will be informed and need to pay Rs. 1000/-( CTE Life Member) and Rs. 1200/-(non member) for publication. The Chair person/Secretary is requested to send the draft of payment by subscribers to the Chief Editor in favor of ‘ CTE Journal”( Chief Editor’s contact # 09823297750 Dr. K M Bhandarkar)
Dr. Nilima Bhagabati with Dr. Ushosi Guha has been entrusted with the responsibility of National News letter publication which will be Bi annual to be published in January & July. All current state news to be mailed with photographs to Dr. N.Bhagabati & Dr. Ushosi Guha: firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com.

The Indo Nepal & Indo USA chapters are doing well.
The 28th CTE annual conference & International Seminar will be in Gondia, Maharashtra and 29th. CTE annual Conf. & International Chapter will be in Kathmandu.
The Manipur Chapter is highly active now after reorganization and so far, after reorganization conducted 3 constructive Workshops. This chapter in Collaboration with Moreh College will organize National Seminar in December end or first week of Jan’14. After receiving details, you all will be informed. Moreh is located at Myanmar Border and you can visit a small town called Tamu in Myanmar after Seminar and can do lots of Shopping in Moreh famous market. Another great attraction in Moreh Conference will be the presence of Olympic Bronze medal winner in Boxing MARY KOM.
Dr. D R Vij is not keeping well due to ailments and for the time being till he recovers fully, Dr. K M. Bhandarkar has been nominated as Working President.
Friends, I do understand that all of us are professionals and have to take care of our personal and family life. May be this is one of the reasons for which CTE works and activities are not addressed by some state chapters. I also understand that everyone is busy in their own fields, but if we can sacrifice at least half an hour everyday for the great noble cause of CTE , it will be GREAT on your part and highly appreciable ,as you know each drop of water makes an Ocean and to transform CTE into a vast Ocean is our aim.. Pls. be in touch through mails/cell phone for retaining the “WE FEELING IN OUR HEARTS & MINDS’. CTE Parivar is one and always united.
Thanks a lot for the great support and cooperation given and the trust you have on me to lead this Number one Professional Organization having International status. Good wishes to all. May we all be blessed by Divine Power.
