Some testimonials : tales of success!
“Whether people can see the changes or not, the changes here are not temporary but permanent, unlike other organizations. As students know that there is an NGO which will stand through their problems, thick and thin; it would help them speak their heart out. Mostly during the programme or a day after it, no noticeable change is observed, but studentswould be united against any further episode of ragging”.

Sub : "Re: Regarding Ragging Complaint"
After detailed enquiry, those culprits were identified and produced in the college. After getting a complaint from The National Anti-Ragging Cell, VC Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences, Medical Council of India, Commissioner of Police Bangalore and most importantly from SAVE. Now it depends on college authority how to take action. We, the freshers are so happy , as the whole college campus is very cool and no harassment of students are going on. I, on behalf of all my classmates, thank your team for your support against ragging.
We wish a good development of SAVE and other anti-ragging teams and their members a very prosperous journey on supporting students grievances.
Thanking you and your team.”

“… SAVE NGO do have their activists actively helping the victims in a city like Delhi, so why not utilize their potential. Apart from this, SAVE has a legal lethal weapon like Meera Kaura Patel, who is well-qualified in seeking justice to the sufferers. Also, SAVE actively pursues Ragging cases. This is done by dispatching 100 copies of your Ragging complaint to the Education Minister per day/ per week/ per month; contacting the Ministry directly, approaching well-known Human Right’s Activists to get back to you, filing RTIs with your College authorities, requesting Supreme Court’s intervention in the terror meted out at you by your tormentors etc. etc.
It’s already been a high time, as I see, since you suffering like an outcast at the hands of some iron-handed authorities, who have supported your tormentors and allowed to unleash the worst kind of terror you never exposed to. Remember: the more you succumb the deeper they will inflict.
I do hope to see Justice at your doorstep within a few days after you approach SAVE, especially Ms Patel, who has been active running from pillar to post to get Indian Govt to enact a National AntiRagging legislation.
Honestly, I have no deal with them or you but felt to spare some time from my busy schedule since this is all I can do as a citizen wishing to see the flame of justice delivered to every Indian citizen irrespective of their caste, creed, religion or social status.

“…after the complaint sent by SAVE to our principal, everything has changed. Neither we go to the place called “block” where the seniors beat us in the morning no can they do anything to us in the college campus. We sent the copy of F.I.R. to the raggers and current juniors through Facebook by making a fake id. The college administration is also showing strictness toward ragging. Once again, thank you SAVE .”
“We are extremely happy to say that they have taken the steps what all we expected. Today morning itself they allotted a professor in our bus. And the canteen was divided separately for first years. And even in the evening, we are accompanied safely by the staffs. We are extremely thankful for SAVE as we didn’t expect such a drastic change!”
“After your last message, things have changed significantly. Frequent patrols are going on during the classes. This has helped the freshers to be saved significantly. Thanks again for taking steps to help us out.”
My seniors who were ragging me have been expelled out from the hostel. Now finally all this torture has come to an end as the seniors have got punishment for all they have done to me. It was not easy for me to make all this happen. Without your support I could not even dare to complain this matter to an anti-ragging helpline.
I still remember the day when I was very scared of seniors. I was crying due to the continuous torture I was facing because of my seniors. I was broken, hopeless and in mental trauma.
I searched on Google for help and I came to know about you. Your website is very informative.
Without you people I would not get the right justice. You gave me the support to fight with this system. For me and other victims of ragging, you are the light of hope.”
“Thanks Sir for your effort, everything is fine now in our department, anti-ragging committee comes to our college and, ask us everything that happened.
And after that nothing happened with us, seniors told sorry to us and told us that they will never do anything like that again. Now we can freely go to college. Thanks a lot sir”
