Education is a fulfilling and ongoing journey but how one embarks it makes the difference. I would like to emphasize that education is not merely getting good grades or academic awards. A good education system should provide value and skill based education which will lead to a socially competent society. “Social competence” refers to the social, emotional and cognitive skills and behaviors that children need to succeed in society. I believe that every child can become a socially competent adult if given an opportunity to gain life skills. Skills like creativity, critical thinking, social skills, positive character and flexibility to adapt to the ever-changing world are more important for children, even adults, to learn than academic concepts.
In my view, every child should be given the wings to excel and be fulfilled with a life that has a meaning to “them”.
I sincerely urge parents to see their children‛s lives beyond the confinement of competition arenas and help them become happy, empowered and contributing members of society. To further add, it gives me immense pleasure to share that the first admission to this facility is my 2-year-old daughter, Anandita. I can assure every parent/guardian reading this message, that your child will receive the same love, care and warmth that I would expect for my daughter.
