Even after ten days, the news of the death of Shri Ambarish Rai, National Convener of the Right to Education (RTE) Forum, remains unbelievable and shocking. The RTE Forum and CBPS came closer after both Mr. Ambarish Rai and Dr. Jyotsna Jha, our director, were brought together as Education Champions by Malala Fund. We collaborated for several initiatives and shared a number of concerns and positions. We will remember Ambarish for his commitment to the cause and his convening capabilities. In this hour of deep sorrow our heart goes out to his family and friends. We stand together with his colleagues and friends, including Shri Mitra Ranjan and Ms. Srijita at the RTE Forum, in their grief and in taking forward the cause of making free and inclusive education a reality.
Shri Ambarish Rai participated in our event on 29 August 2019 and the photographs can be viewed here.
