Visiting Sai Siksha Sansthan reminded me of my fathers teachings – Happiness is not a commodity which you can buy, borrow or steal. It is a feeling, which comes from within and contentment is the seed of it.
Students of Sai Siksha Sansthan are the reflection of this thought. I felt like meeting a small troop of not only well disciplined but self disciplined, well dressed, well behaved and happy students. They were fully contented with the minimum resources they had and getting a pencil or an eraser as a gift brings a broad and bright smile on their serene faces.
The sole objective of the Sansthan is to nurture and mould young minds into civilized citizens. Many students were from nearby villages whose parents were mostly illiterate, but they entrusted the school with the responsibility of educating their wards and are not inclined to interfere or dictate terms. The school has not only achieved its goal by taking the onus on its shoulders but also strengthened and maintained the bond of trust between school and parents for the last 25 years.
Sai Siksha Sansthan is a perfect example of bilateral, fruitful and harmonious relationship between society and school.

I was part of a trip organized by the school to ‘Sai Kripa Sansthan’ which has been a life changing experience as it was filled with emotions and sentiments.Grades 2-6 along with three other teachers visited it. The school is situated on the outskirts. It was a brick building with an open area at the centre. The school is run by Mrs. Kiran . We were taken by surprise when we entered the school as there was complete silence and it seemed that there were not many children in the school. But to our utter dismay all the classes were having full attendance and the children were attentive and disciplined.
We took a round of the school; saw their science lab, computer lab and the library. What was an eye opening experience was that they were utilizing the limited resources they had very wisely and sincerely. It was a learning experience for all the children and also for us. I had the opportunity to interact with grade 5 students. It was a pleasure beyond measure to see the confidence of the children.
In the end we gave them the items collected during the ‘Joy of the Sharing’ week in our school and could see the happiness and gratitude in their actions. After the visit now I can really say that hard work + dreams + dedication = success. We all have so much to learn in so lessa time and I believe that the journey of learning in never ending.
