We are living in an era of abundant opportunities; nevertheless toughest challenges invariably loom large in front of us. Educational institutions are doing their best to keep up with the dynamic times and every institution is bracing up well to make students come out with flying colours. Will that be enough for the students to be successful in their lives? Do all students come to school only to get good grades? I know from my interaction with the students that they have a long wish list of expectations from the school. They wish that the school provided them a platform to explore and exhibit their talents; they wish the school were a place to have fun; they wish they could vent out their emotions; they wish the school did everything to prepare them ready for the future challenges. And no student ever wants the school to be always fun without doing anything worthwhile. All that they expect is a judicious mix of all the above so that they get the experience of living a life and just not learning how to live.
We, the staff and students of Chinmaya Vidyalaya, Virugambakkam take this opportunity to offer our humble Pranams to Swami Swaroopanandaji, who has taken charge as the Head of Chinmaya Mission Worldwide.
