Welcome to

Our Student's Students
This social work project wishes to carry out a quality-in-literacy oriented, rural-based socio-educational movement in the troubled regions of India. We work tirelessly against various kinds of sectional-hatred. We wish to emerge a new class of youth that is well-informed, intelligent, courageous and well-rounded in character. This project also includes the releasing of a documentary that would expose the main fallacies of our current global education system. It’s aimed to surely change the educational establishment and shatter the status-quo, protecting the youth and allowing them to rise up freely yet with the right aspirations for human values.

The Appropriate Learning and Work Zone

The Appropriate Learning and Work Zone

We learn very less when we are in our Comfort Zone, but when we stretch ourselves to the appropriate level, then we learn more, but if we push ourselves over the limits of discomfort, then we suffer stress and can be a great danger to your health and work flow.

While this model can help you as an individual, it can also help you when coaching others. Firstly, remember that everyone’s comfort, stretch and panic zones are different, so you can use the model to have a coaching conversation to explore the feelings and physiological responses that individual experiences in each zone. Writing them down or talking about them, using past examples, can heighten their self-awareness. Then, the conversation can focus on the future and explore how to manage and change their behavior or situation, if possible, to enable them to grow. Even if a situation feels like it’s impossible to change, their choice in how they react to it can be.

Everyone’s comfort, stretch and panic zones are different
As a leader, through observing and asking the right coaching stretch questions, you can gain an understanding of your team’s zones. Ensure that the types of challenges they receive allow them to frequently stretch and develop themselves without pushing them into their panic zone for long periods of time. This strategy will ultimately lead to a motivated and engaged team of people who can recognize and choose their own responses to allow greater learning, innovation and growth.

“if you want to feel secure
do what you already know how to do.
but if you want to grow…
go to the cutting e.g. of your competence,
which means a temporary loss of security.
so, whenever you don’t quite know
what you are doing
that you are growing…”

(David Viscott, 2003)

To all the truth tellers out there, who give their energy to educate, inspire and spread knowledge. Keep up the good work. I know it can be tiring but you were born a leader and that's what leaders do. The world thanks you for your gift.

The Truth leads

Bow down to the Truth or else live a lie.

Education must empower not exploit.

Education must empower not exploit. Teachers should not implement exploiting business patterns on their students, Doctors must not implement exploiting business patterns on their patients.

The Purpose of Education

The whole purpose of education is to turn mirrors into windows.

The Brain, Heart and Gut Relationship

Paying attention to attention - How to Tame Your Wandering Mind

The truth is, human beings use 100 percent of their brain capacity. The brain is a highly efficient, energy-demanding organ that gets fully utilized and even though it is at full capacity being used, it suffers from a problem of information overload. There's far too much in the environment than it can fully process. So to solve this problem of overload, evolution devised a solution, which is the brain's attention system. We can think of attention as the leader of the brain. Wherever attention goes, the rest of the brain follows. In some sense, it's your brain's boss. attention changes perception. And it does so very fast.

They tell us that attention is very powerful in terms of affecting our perception. Even though it's so powerful, it's also fragile and vulnerable. And things like stress and mind-wandering diminish its power. we take our mind away from the task at hand, about 50 percent of our waking moments. These might be small, little trips that we take away, private thoughts that we have.

Our mind is an exquisite time-traveling master. It can actually time travel very easily. If we think of the mind as the metaphor of the music player, we see this. We can rewind the mind to the past to reflect on events that have already happened, right? Or we can go and fast-future, to plan for the next thing that we want to do. And we land in this mental time-travel mode of the past or the future very frequently. What's worse is when we experience stress. When we're in a moment of overwhelm. We don't just reflect on the past when we rewind, we end up being in the past ruminating, reliving or regretting events that have already happened. Or under stress, we fast-forward the mind. Not just to productively plan. But we end up catastrophizing or worrying about events that haven't happened yet and frankly may never happen.

Solution: Mindfulness Exercises to Pay Attention to your own Attention
Mindfulness exercises are very much like physical exercise: if you don't do it, you don't benefit. But if you do engage in mindfulness practice, the more you do, the more you benefit.

Laws of Abundance

The Law of Abundance affirms that there can never be any shortage. Shortage exists only in the mind as a result of poor thinking. There is always more energy available than we could ever hope to utilize, and more is being created all the time. What your neurons focus on and believe, your body achieves. Unnecessary unsubstantial Fear and Doubt are also very destructive. Your words have a great impact on what your world will become. You state has a major role in how you create your response to Reality. It's energy that gives life to Abundance. Abundant Ripples create waves. By re-framing your mind system, you will rewire your future for the better.

You can rise up from anything

True Education is that which enables you to rise up from anything.
