Education aims at holistic growth of a student with at most care, generous heart and right use of freedom and non-irritant patience. The mission of education is to form the students a responsible citizen of our country, a harmonious person in the society and a caring parent in the family. If there is a tree in a seed, a beautiful statue in a stone and a colorful butterfly in a pupa, there is a scientist, doctor, engineer, pilot ......... in a student. Education brings out the best in every student. To do this noble task we need a link of co-operation between parents, teachers, friends and students. There must be timely introspection, evaluation, mutual respect, disciplined life and open mentality to mould, to form, to transform young mind to a mature and noble human beings.
In this digital world students are smarter due to the advanced technologies. In the midst of all the electronic gadgets, students forget about the formation of Good character. They need quick results without hardwork. They speak only success and victory. They don't know how to accept failures. If anyone who has achieved anything great or changed the world, has gone through many failures, instead of giving up.
What our children need is guidance, care and support. It must start from house, from parents and elders then, of course, from teachers and friends. This empowerment they must get at the right time and right place. Together with learning they must acquire good culture, love towards society, compassion for the poor and needy and above all a calm and serene disposition. A self motivated personality has always the quality of responsibility. Parents and teachers accompany the students with whole hearted support and guidance to form such personalities for the bright future of students. in this process there can be failures and success. In this process there can be failures and success, sadness and happiness, negative and positive thoughts. Education plays a great role to cope up with all the challenges and the tremendous changes happen in this digital world. But remember there is no success without hard work. Excellence must be proved only by hard work and dedication.
Our lives and all that happens to us is not accidental or by chance. God has a plan for each individual. "Trust in the Lord and surrender to him."(Proverbs 3:5) "Seek his will in all you do and he will show you which path to take."(Proverbs 3:6)
GOD BLESS YOU ALL.
