Research finding on the efficacy of the Shristi Program :

In 2006, a vivid research was done on the efficacy of this Shristi program with a sample study of 60 mothers. The research and the statistical report were professionally done and submitted to the university. This research paper won lot of laurels from the scholars as the project was unique and the results were amazing! The results were

  • 67.7% of the mothers in the experimental group (who attended the Shristi program) delivered normally.

  • 70% of the babies of the experimental group (here after referred as Shristi babies) showed more adaptability to environmental changes soon after birth. Comparatively, only 53.3% of the babies of the control group (here after referred as other babies) showed such adoptability.

  • A very interesting finding is that 70% of the Shristi babies were able to recognise various sounds including mother’s voice and music, well before their birth, in their mother’s womb itself. But only 26% of the other babies showed such recognition.

  • Shristi babies showed very high interest in music.

  • 86.6% of the Shristi babies showed very high interest in colourful objects, pictures and books.

  • 66.7% of the Shristi babies were more sociable and friendlier with their peer group while only 36.7% of the other babies showed such sociability. In fact 16.7% of them were very irritable and cried often when new faces are seen.

  • An important finding is that the developmental milestones of the Shristi babies were much faster than the other babies. 1/3rd of the Shristi babies rolled over before 3rd month, 1/4th of them were able to sit before 6th months and crawl in less than 6months of age. 80% of the Shristi babies were able to walk before their first birthday! But 50% of the other babies were able to walk only after completing 1year of age. Thus in every aspect of physical development, Shristi babies showed very early development.

  • 36.6% of the Shristi babies spoke in less than 8 months time while only 13% of the other babies were able to speak within 8 months. Most of them spoke only after 1year.

  • Shristi babies exhibited better hand eye co ordination and 43.3% of them started to scribble before 1year were only 16.7% of the other children were able to do so.

  • Shristi babies were able to understand and process information very early (30% in less than 6 month time) when compared with the other children (10%).

  • Introducing new food was comparatively easier for Shristi babies.

  • Interestingly, 87% of the Shristi babies possessed very happy state of mind compared to the other babies (53%).

  • Also 67% of the Shristi babies rarely got sick. Only 3% of them fell sick very often. But 23% of the other babies fell sick very often. The general health of the Shristi babies was comparatively very good.

Thus the results exhibited that this unique program formulated for pregnant mothers in Shristi was able to produce remarkable difference in the physical, cognitive and emotional well being of the child. Hence pregnant mothers are facilitated to attend Shristi classes for their own well being and for the well being of the unborn child. This would help babies to develop and exhibit their full potential, thereby enhancing the society as a whole.
