An Effective Approach on Outstanding Voluntary Service for a Social Cause

M. Jaikumar


Home Guards is a voluntary and honorary organisation like any other service oriented organisations. Maintaining Law and Order, traffic duties and in crime control measures during hostile attacks, natural calamities, etc. They save lives of people and protect property. Home Guards service includes firefighting, rescue, first-aid and communication. They act as first responders. Trained and motivated volunteers are helpful, courteous and compassionate to do selfless service to mitigate others' sufferings. Personnel is recruited from various people to include doctors, lawyers, teachers, employees of public and private sector organisations, college and university students, agricultural and industrial workers and others who give their spare time to their communities. The motive of this work is to identify the skilled and excellent home guards and to predict such optimized and interested home guards in their earlier educational studies using Bayesian theorem. The details of home guards dataset are collected from Tamilnadu Home Guards, Coimbatore District. Nearly 317 records are used in this workout of them 262 are male and 55 are female which is less than 20%. It is able to identify that youngsters are much interested in working as home guards. Another interesting pattern inherited using profession is business owners, students, unemployed and labours are contributing more services as home guards. The Bayesian theorem predicts the home guards outcome based on the activity with respect to the profession.
