Honoring the courage of the Indian people in their fight for independence, in commemoration of the Republic of India Day, the Scientology Volunteer Ministers of West Bengal held a celebration for children in the slums of Kolkata.

Though India was awarded independence on the 15th of August 1947 it was not till 26th of January 1950 that the country actually achieved its status as a sovereign republic.
|Created by humanitarian, L. Ron Hubbard in 1978, the motto of the Scientology Volunteer Ministers is "Something CAN be Done About It."|
And with their work to bring personal independence to each child in the slums of Kolkata, by seeing to it that they have the opportunity for education, the VMs made this a special day for the youngsters at their center, with a flag raising ceremony, sports and a special meal for the children.
In 1978, observing a marked deterioration of ethics and values in society, L. Ron Hubbard launched the Volunteer Ministers program with the publication of The Volunteer Minister's Handbook (now titled The Scientology Handbook). A textbook that includes the various solutions he had developed in answer to the wide range of human difficulties, the tools it contains are derived from his deeper research into the spiritual nature of man that comprise the Scientology religion. Having these simple but effective solutions that apply to so many different aspects of life, Scientology Volunteer Ministers live by the motto that no matter how bad it is, "something CAN be done about it."
