Honesty Test passed by school students

Thursday, March 29th, 2018

6 students of class VII, Rashtrotthana Vidya Kendra had attended Value Classes and later shifted to the school Global Academy For Learning. When they were in class VIII, a teacher wanted to give important probable questions for the class unit test and hence started dictating the questions.  Instead of copying down the questions on their note books, the students closed their ears(Unbelievable right!!). When the teacher asked for the reason, they remembered the honesty class attended and told that, “We have taken a resolve to follow the honesty for our entire life.”

Role of youth in Modern India - by Nandini

Role of youth in Modern India – by Nandini

Sunday, March 25th, 2018

The gentle push, the angry voice, the change makers, the burden bearers, all these adjectives fit the context perfectly when we talk about the youth.

They fight for their own rights and everybody else’s, they support the right and protest against the wrong. They figure out the good and the bad and choose their role accordingly.

At the moment when catastrophe strikes, you can only exhibit the character ingrained in you.   Seen someone panicking when things go wrong? That person is likely to be of an anxious temperament. The people who stay calm when disaster strikes? They’ve probably spent a lifetime cultivating that composure. […]

But Arunachalam Muruganantham is nothing less than an anomaly. While most men squirm at the mention of menstruation or sanitary napkins, Muruganantham just couldn’t bear to see his wife use a dirty rag for her periods. And today, here he is, helping millions of Indian rural women afford low-cost sanitary napkins. He believes that our country cannot be called ‘developed’ if we cannot make mothers of this nation healthy. ‘By looking at Mumbai, Kolkata and Delhi, we cannot say our nation is developed. […]
