From Priti Ambekar's desk:
I sincerely feel that with great Power comes great responsibility. Similarly, educating the young lives of children is an extremely powerful task which needs to be handled with conscious responsibility. Learning is an ongoing process, and to be able to do that with ease, expertise and enthusiasm is the only approach the stake holders should carry within their minds. This should be followed and also transferred to the young minds to build their foundation years with love and compassion and build their trust in this beautiful journey of education.
