Silver Personality of the month April 2009: Nirmala Narula

Nirmala Narula ‘Ever Green’ Social Worker

Nirmala Narula now 78 years young is part of many meaningful projects initiated by non-profit Public Foundations including, organizations like the Ford Foundation - that maintained the larger vision of: implementing programs for the welfare of the country.

During the mid 60’s she actively participated, (using marketing skills), in promoting two specific programs that were the need of the hour - a run-away population increase, namely: implementation of two major family planning programs, which involved introducing and promoting the Intra-uterine device for women and marketing the Nirodh. The latter had country-wide ramifications - simultaneous to a new factory that had started in Kanpur. A shrewd application of the right choices, resulted in marketing the device, through active liaison with the appropriate business houses in Calcutta. This prompted the need for viable project projections and effective execution. Her active participation both in liaison with clinics and hospitals and evaluating successes and failures, led to altering direction for the better. She became a great asset and her advice to the technical staff created a platform for appropriate and necessary changes.

Narula maintained organizational liaison with the concerned Ministry assuring them of maximum cooperation, in furthering their population and family welfare plans. She also served with Welfare Project All Bengal Women’s Union.

During the late 60’s, with a social-welfare bent of mind, and at ease with her B.Ed. degree, she introduced the Doman-dela Cato method of teaching – (of producing ‘maxi kids’ - with proven success in the U.S. which, Smt. Narula learned through a prescribed correspondence course), turning her home into a ‘neighborhood school’. Children unable to get admissions in bigger schools were admitted. In her desire to reach out to more kids, she went to the Institutes of Neurological Development in Germantown, Pa., to learn more.

She carried a burning desire in her heart for opportunities to serve society, which pointed her in several directions, which became apparent as time went on.
