“For a complete civilization the world is waiting, waiting for the treasures to come out of India, … Little do we understand the heart-pangs of millions waiting outside the walls, stretching forth their hands for a little sip of that nectar which our forefathers have preserved in this land of India.”… Swami Vivekananda
Pandemic and the uncertainty of models and means of reaching education has become a challenge for the future academics all over the world. Every tunnel has a light at the end and that is where the horizon “DISHANK” the dream of authors begins.
In this era, there are schools of various genres and in this age, it is a rat race of competing and gaining momentum over each other leave alone education, business or any field. Dr. Abdul Kalam in his motivational speech on “UNIQUE YOU”, referring to swami Vivekananda reiterated that, every youth wants to be unique. Each of them is “designer made” – only one of its genetic models (not even the twins).
Many skill-based natural inheritances like carpentry, handloom weaving, pottery, agriculture, pharmacy etc are no more inherited. The rich heritage of culture, tradition and skills got unredeemed. Moonis Raza (Education and the Future:A Vision") firmly believed that "Regional development is eco-development”....and the ten point action plan in ‘Talloires declaration’ can be implemented for sustainable future. Thus came the concept of the “DISHANK” A new niche School.
It is the aspiration of the authors that DISHANK becomes a dream project that will bring out the uniqueness and respect for a sustainable future. The conscience within explodes to ignite the imagination and spark the inner inferno of the self and move the child from I, Me, mine to Us, We and ours… a value that is soul inspired.
Dishank the new age school will be a harmonious blend of inheritors of our culture and rituals ie the children. Leadership, ownership of learning the right attitude, empathy and respect will be an integral part of education that will empower and groom our students to be the ambassadors for the human cause
