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.

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.

How Effective are you in Communicating?


How Effective are you in Communicating?
How can you improve your thinking skills? How can you improve your ability to put your thoughts into words? How can you improve your ability to communicate your words to other people? And yes how can you make your voice more easier to understand. These are the questions each individual must ask oneself. As an Educator or Teacher, one must improve in all these areas to be an effective leader.

'Yes, we teachers are not in it for the income. We are in it for the outcome.'

How an English teacher became a role model
"(She taught us)  to write to express and not to impress, avoid bombastic language and be simple -- writing what we mean and meaning what we write. 'Yes, Mrs Kamala's education was education of the heart where she positively made us better human beings. 'She didn't do it by lecturing, but by merely leading an upright life herself and setting an example for us. She became our role model. 'She surely proved that 'the good teacher teaches, the spiritual teacher preaches, but the successful teacher reaches.' 'Indeed, she did manage to reach our hearts and touch our souls with her love and compassion.

Motivational Quote: Bruce Lee

 
“An intelligent mind is an inquiring mind. It is not satisfied with explanation, with conclusions. Nor is it a mind that believes, because belief is again another form of conclusion.” - Bruce Lee

The Mind laboratory



In the mind lies the mysterious connection to the universal divine core. If we don't study our mind, we remain blind. A conscious person is not just a person who breathes but also a person who understands the functioning of his reverberating mind.

It's by studying the mind inside that we are able to see the actual reality of what's going on outside. The individual mind is a part and a direct link to the universal mind.

Spiritual Literacy


Even after all the development we have had in Science and Technology, we still are yet to understand the greatest mysteries of our Universe, we still don't know where we came from and where we go to and what is the ultimate purpose of this journey. And we might never know. And the infinite demand that beckons us to search for harmony with this lack of knowledge surely humbles us. We must rediscover the link to a great supreme nature force that envelopes us all. That inner source that creates, maintains and destroys. That one source where we find ultimate strength from an absolute nothing. That which makes as content in good times and prepared in bad times. Such a spiritual understanding is necessary for a complete education.
