“What shapes the best in us dies when the best education dies! The best in us shall always be undermined when they that are responsible for shaping the best in us are always undermined!

I stand for a different education: a different education where students will not just learn books but life!

I stand for a different education: a different education where students will not just learn moral principles, but they shall be living examples of moral principles.

I stand for a different education: a different education where students don’t just understand what they learn, but practice what they learn with understanding!

I stand for a different education: a different education where students will not just learn about people of different beliefs, culture and backgrounds, but how to live with people who don’t share common perspective with them and know how to show their emotions of bitterness and misunderstanding rightly!

I stand for a different education: a different education where students will be perfect ambassadors’ of God on earth and live their daily lives with all due diligence!

I stand for a different education: a different education where students will understand why we all breathe the same air, sleep and wake up each day in the same manner to continue the journey of life!

I stand for a different education: a different education where students will learn with inspiration even in their desperations!

I stand for a different education: a different education where teachers are seen as true epitome of education!

I stand for a different education: a different education in which the value of the teacher is well understood and the teacher is well valued as a treasure!

I stand for a different education: a different education where students will not just learn, but they will reproduce great and noble things with what they learn!

I stand for a different education: a different education where students will understand the real meaning of integrity and responsibility and with true courage and humility be that as such!

I stand for a different education: a different education where education means creativity!

Education is the spine of every nation! The better the education, the better the nation! The mediocre the education, the mediocre the nation! A good nation is good because of how education has shaped the perspective and understanding of the populace! A nation that does not know where it is heading towards must ask the machine that produces the populace who drive the nation: education! Until we fix our education, we shall always have a wrong education and we shall always see a wrong nation!”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

“There is one kind of charity common enough among us… It is that patchwork philanthropy which clothes the ragged, feeds the poor, and heals the sick. I am far from decrying the noble spirit which seeks to help a poor or suffering fellow being… [However] what advances a nation or a community is not so much to prop up its weakest and most helpless members, but to lift up the best and the most gifted, so as to make them of the greatest service to the country.”
Jamsetji Tata

Vishwas Chavan
“Sacrifice has great value in that it not only achieves personal success but builds successful communities, nations and humanity. Each moment spent in selfless sacrifice makes you a stronger person, and such strength fosters the required determination to cope with adversity and hardship for the sake of others.”
Vishwas Chavan, Vishwasutras: Universal Principles for Living: Inspired by Real-Life Experiences

“It has often been our best instincts, not our worst, that have led us to do harm in the world”

Graham Greene
“They killed him because he was too innocent to live. He was young and ignorant and silly and he got involved. He had no more of a notion than any of you what the whole affair's about, and you gave him money and York Harding's books on the East and said, 'Go ahead. Win the East for democracy.' He never saw anything he hadn't heard in a lecture hall, and his writers and his lecturers made a fool of him.”
Graham Greene, The Quiet American

“PEACE OF MAN

Greet each man with words of love
And peace,
And a dove will be placed
On an olive tree.
Leave a man with feelings
Of betrayal
Or envy,
And a dove gets shot
Off the olive tree.
Greet each man with peace,
And leave each man with love.
Ask yourself -
One more enemy,
Or one more dove?
Always choose love.
It's time for everybody to
Speak love.
Let's fill the trees with doves,
And spread the leaves of love.
So,
Always add
And never subtract
Another peace of man
From the olive tree.

PEACE OF MAN by Suzy Kassem”
