www.zalke.com is a inspired from the work of Late Shri. Balaji Zalke. We are proud to launch this site on their 100th birth day.
Our mission is to get all our family and friends to know each other and share their moments in their life with the whole family and world!!!
To accomplish this mission we had several sections where members can share, view and enjoy the fine moments, enjoyed by other members in the family.
We understand there are huge challenges in front of us, being a community who is chasing the world and proving to be ready for challenges!
The biggest challenge is “digital divide”, most of us don’t have access to internet or even any modern communication devices. We are going to over come this challenge by providing a helping hand to our brothers and sisters by uplifting their concern, data and uploading/raising with the community.
Another challenge we can envisage is communication, well in modern era this should not create any issue, as we can get in touch using emails, social networking sites, or even mobile phones. We have to just spread a word of mouth, chain of emails and we are off to a great start!
Sharing the data will be sorted, as we said earlier, by mutually sharing the responsibility and updating information who ever holds within our member circle.
We are very existed with these challenges and looking forward to overcome them, even it looks impossible!
Late Shri. Balaji Zalke had a habit of keeping his diary. He had maintained his habit whole life and pass on this valuable information before leaving this world to Yadao Zalke.
This site is not the first attempt to manage this kind information. This has started by Balaji Zalke very early in his life. He had maintained his yearly diaries through out his life. The synopsis was presented and published by Yadao Zalke in his book “Me zopdi boltey” (talking hut).
We are trying to take this information a step further, the dairies maintained by Balaji Zalke was first attempt, second was books published by Yadao Zalke. So we had concept the idea of third generation to have a website.
What we do
What’s so special about this? Isn’t this just like a dozen other websites?
Well nothing special and yes there are unlimited similar sites available. The main aim of this was to provide a platform for all to share and enjoy wonderful moments in the community.
At the same time this also provide a medium to collect the ancestry (family search) information about the community. Well ask your self a question, do you really know each and every member of your family, can you definitely tell your x sibling’s y member’s z relatives/relations? You don’t have to.
Once a generation is passes by, it takes all the information, moments, relations they had or enjoyed with community with them. What if we can keep the record of this information and keep it updated to date. So our next generation will enjoy the fruits from the trees we sow!
So we set our aims very clear:
- Ancestry – Family history
- Members – Know each other
- Moments – Share the happiness, photos and videos
- Communication – Keep in touch via email, news letters
