TIME TO WIND UP? TIME TO BEGIN?


Academic programs in higher education are like roller coaster rounds for both - students and teachers. Work related to entrance test and admissions start before examinations and results are done with. May 2017 has been a very important month since examinations of our first batch of two year B Ed program got over. We are pleased to pump-in yet more special teachers in the field equipped with professional knowledge, skills and attitude. And what follows after final examination is the farewell party. Our first year students had planned it for the second year student on 26th May 2017 and they really made it a special day for everyone. Unlike the usual practice, the faculty gave fishponds to students in the form of certificates. First years presented the second years with saplings - a gift with message! Weldon!!

Post Camp was held on 26th and 27th May for the second year students and they were given input on building CVs, appearing for interviews and negotiating salaries. Also feedback was obtained from them on the curriculum, its implementation and the faculty of the college. They were informed about alumni association and encouraged to become members of AAHA. There were games, dances and photos and food. All the best to our students - who will be called alumni in a month!


’Karma yogi’ becomes ’Divyang yogi’


It is a matter of pride and privilege to Chembur Colony Yuvak Mandal to share our biggest moment of fulfillment with friends and well wishers. Department of Social Welfare, Govt of Maharashtra felicitated Shri Amar Asrani, Director, CCYM for his unconditional and path making efforts in disability management. As is known to all and as the ’manpatra’ presented to him on 4th February rightly claims - he is the single most person who is instrumental to establish flagship programs at CCYM which include Rochiram T Thadhani High school for the Hearing Impaired, Hashu Advani College of Special education, and Anil Asrani Vocational College. Thanks to his leadership, all these and many more activities of CCYM are known to be unique and community oriented.

On 4th February 2017 he was felicitated by Hon V C of Mumbai University - Dr Sanjay Deshmukh in presence of shri Yshavantrao More and Sri Papan Saheja. The letter of honor presented to him is signed by Secretary (Social Welfare dept, GOM). Staff, beneficiaries and students of CCYM always looked at him as a role model and fondly called him Karmayogi. Thanks very much to Govt of Maharashtra to recognize and put on records his service to be ’Divyang yogi’. Our Asrani sir - as expected thanked this gesture but called this to be a bigger responsibility rather than an achievement. That’s what marks an individual to be ’class apart’. CONGRATS to dear sir and to our CCYM family, most importantly the blessings of Shri Hashuji who led us here!

HACSE initiated the process for coming in that category last year. After a stringent and long term process and with consistent follow up, the college has been added in the 12 B list for the XII plan grant.

NATIONAL ASSESSMENT AND ACRIDITATION COUNCIL’ (NAAC) GRADING OF HACSE: REPORT


India is getting more quality sensitive in the field of education. Higher education is no exception. NAAC is a wing of UGC established for the purpose of quality improvement of colleges / universities / higher education centres through a very demanding and structured process of grading organizations into A, B, C, and D type on the basis of various parameters set for the quality measurement.

CCYM’S HACSE is the first independent college entering this process which went on for more than a year. The last phase of the same is the visit of external high level committee visiting the college. Dr Savithri (Director AIISH, Mysore), Dr J Dhillon (Principal Khalsa College of Education, Amritsar) and Dr Ravikumar A (Director, ENT hospital, Chennai) visited CCYM on 14th and 15th March 2016. They very stringently reviewed the working of the college and CCYM in general. They were impressed with a few functioning areas like College - school professional collaborations which are benefitting both mutually, healthy and warm environment and administrative and financial documentations.

The college was blessed with the visit of Hon VC of Mumbai University - Dr Sanjay Deshmukh. He appreciated the activities of the CCYM and interacted with the team.

The college has score 2.26 with grade B. Dr Gayatri Sirur coordinated this huge activity excellently supported by all members of HACSE and their families. College puts on record the appreciation for Dr Gayatri Sirur for taking the college through this process. CCYM management supported the activity wholeheartedly and spared a lot of time for preparation. The report can not be complete without the acknowledgement of Poonamtai and RTT family for the unconditional support. Last but not the least, current students and alumni worked day in and out for this process and things would have been totally different without their support.

Overall, NAAC was a very fulfilling experience and we all learnt a lot out of this. We also renewed our bond with CCYM as a family. The outcome in terms of B grade can be considered a huge milestone achievement.


LAUNCHING B ED (SPECIAL EDUCATION - LEARNING DISABILITY) FROM 2016-17


Among the various disabilities, learning disability has the highest incidence. It is estimated to be as high as 7 to 10 children out of every 100 school going children. This is an estimate of developing countries - nobody is sure of Indian numbers. Where do we stand in terms of EDUCATION FOR ALL when almost 10% of the population do not adequately reflect school education policies and their effective implementation? CCYM’S HACSE attempts at being the change that it wishes to bring about. After the tireless efforts to start B Ed (special Education - Learning Disability) for the last 3 years, the pieces fell into place this academic year. YES, long awaited B Ed (special Education - Learning Disability) is starting this year at HACSE affiliated to Mumbai university and recognized by the Rehabilitation Council of India. It has 25 seats and these will be filled by Maharshtra CET. Fees for this un aided program is 50,000 per year or as per the approval of the shikshan shulka Samitee.
