MJC welcomes our Alumni Roja Jasmine back as our Faculty member

I am Roja Jasmine. I came to Michael job centre after my father was brutally murdered in 2003. It was very difficult for my family to continue in life after the death of my father. What complicated our hardship was that our family was also in debt as we had borrowed significant funds for my father’s treatment. Our financial and emotional condition was in disarray and none of our relatives were willing to help due to the fear that they might incur the wrath of those who had murdered my father.We were totally alienated.

Our local pastor was helping us spiritually and knew that we were in dire straits. It was at this time that he told us about MJC and spoke to Dr. Job about me. I consider myself very fortunate that Dr.Job welcomed me with open arms. I started my journey at MJC when I was in 5th grade. In the ensuing years, I finished my 12th grade and then moved to the Michael Job Memorial College of Arts and Science for undergraduate study. After I graduated with a degree in B.A (English Literature), I went on to study B. Ed at the Michael Job College of Education. I have currently been absorbed as a faculty in Michael Job Matriculation Higher Secondary School. At the same time, I hope to continue my studies and acquire a Master’s in English Literature.

MJC has changed my life and I am very grateful for the opportunity to give something back to my alma mater as I groom the children studying at the campus. This job has also allowed me to become independent financially and support my family. Most importantly, the environment at Michael Job Centre has taught to live life in a better way. I hope that my life will be a lamp that spreads the light of education to the poor and needy. Greatly inspired by my mentor, Dr. Job, I want to follow in his footsteps and become an aid to the deprived section of society.

MJC welcomes Roja Jasmine back as a faculty member. She epitomizes the long held dream of Dr. Job of creating a sustainable system of life and resources for MJC.

Live the life of your present.
Because everything behind you is dark and gone.
And never will it come back.
Your past remains your past forever.
Never try to peep in through those windows,
Windows to your unknown future.
Cause jumping in through those windows
Will give discomfort; try walking in through the door.
The key to your door,
Lies somewhere around you, just like a puzzle.
Solve your quest and there you go.
Sometimes jumping in through the window
Can give you a lot more pleasure
And can prove to be an easier way.
But don’t get tempted
It can be something which hurts,
And you would regret your wrong choice.
Live your life to the horizon
Imagine your dream and fight for it.
Fight, you were born for it.
Love your life and love yourself
Because when you’re forlorn, your soul is what you’ll have.

MJC – KIKANI School Football match organized by Rotary Club of Coimbatore

We at MJC strive to excel both in studies and in extracurricular activities. So when we got an opportunity to play a friendly match of football with the students of Shree Baladevdas  Kikani Higher Secondary School we were excited. Kikani School is a very reputed school in Coimbatore encourages and supports its students in a wide variety of sports and games. Thus it was a privilege for us to have a friendly match with them at their grounds.

Rtn Krishna Kumar Payal and Rtn Shafiq from Rotary Club of Coimbatore which is the sponsor club of Rotaract and Interact Club of MJC were instrumental in organising this match.  Mr Payal and Mr Shafiq along with few other Rotarians attended the function to cheer our team. They also arranged for sumptuous snacks for us after the game and gifted us three footballs,

The match was held on 30th April 2015 at the Kikani Grounds at 4 pm. Our delegation to Kikani included the full MJC team of 26 girls from grades 8 to 12, our staff Mr. Shyam Trinath, Mrs.Poonam and a few other students from MJC to cheer our players.

The captain of MJC team was Lalitha Lama of class 10, a forward player. The Kikani team for us was a formidable competition and they played really well. Our team on the other hand fought really hard.  Neither team scored any goals during the regular time. So the game had to be decided by penalty shootouts. In this we managed to excel and our team scored eight goals. The opponent team could score only six goals as our goalkeeper did a fabulous job and we emerged victorious. The penalty goals were made by Anne Joseph, Carola(Sanu Khatun), Celesti, Joan, Jill, Lalitha and Spring(Snuti Priya).  

The match ended at 5:00 p.m. We were treated with lovely refreshments on our way back. We were back at MJC at 7:30 p.m. 

Over all, it was a great experience for all us. We are thankful to the Kikani School, and Rotary Club of Coimbatore for this opportunity and we pray to God that we would get more such opportunities.
