Educational ethos

  1. To keep yourself and your surroundings clean. It is the reflection of your inner self.
  2. To compete with yourself, and not with others, to achieve more and better, to stretch your potential to the maximum that you can. Remember, the sky is not the limit; only you can limit yourself.
  3. To pray to the Almighty to give you the strength to achieve the things you can, and the serenity to accept what you cannot, and above all the wisdom to know the difference.
  4. To struggle against all odds; that greatness is not in achieving the easy and the ordinary: it is in achieving the seemingly impossible that greatness lies; that history is made by the courageous who dare to question and to challenge and not follow the ordinary and the easy.
  5. To give and give generously till it pains; but not to let the left hand know what the right hand gives. However much you may give, it is infinite; life and love.
  6. Not waste your time; there is never enough time to learn, to love, to give, to achieve, to wonder, to leave behind a legacy, a minute lost is lost forever, it can never be retrieved, if health and wealth are lost, they may still be regained, but not time. One life is not enough to unravel the mysteries of life and of his universe.
  7. To appreciate the beauty and goodness in the universe, the beauty and goodness within you and the beauty and goodness in others.
  8. To set good deeds in motion for a good deed sets in motion a chain of other good deeds, just as a warm smile will not fail to reflect another warm smile.
  9. To bring back the forgotten art of happiness & to know that every human being is basically good, if anyone is bad to you, it is not your fault; nor is it his fault; he may have been treated badly by others. May be your goodness to him will bring back is own goodness. An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth has never brought anybody peace; but when one strikes you on one cheek, showing him the other, too, brings reconciliation, conversion, repentance.
  10. That this great universe and all it contains is the creation of Almighty; and consent, however unfathomable his ways may be hence, a person should endeavor to work in tune with the Almighty and with nature. Do not pollute nature; but keep the ecological balance.
  11. That nothing is absolute or final in life; that chance is an unavoidable law of growth; that never possess the absolute truth; we have only partial truths, be willing to give up partial truth as you discover more truth. The Almighty is the only absolute truth.
  12. Not be afraid to go against the current trends. It is better to be struggling with a hard task than being complacent over a small success; a defeat in the face of a humanly insurmountable task is better than the satisfaction of a small achievement; the sacrifice of one’s own life for a worthy cause is better than a long life that no one has reason to remember.
  13. That each individual is unique and each must find his own unique path in life to success and fulfilment; there is no challenge, and therefore, no reward in the beaten path; each one blossoms in his own uniqueness. Therefore, you decide your destiny and you make it. Others, even teachers and parents, are only helpers. Dare to take the path less traveled, for that will make all the difference in your life.
  14. That it is possible to agree than to disagree: that it is alright to be different; not to feel guilty to assert oneself (not aggressively): it is health to look for one’s own happiness (though not at the expense of another).
  15. To play well the game of life in the Pierre de Coubertin way: “The important thing… is not win but to take part, just as the important thing in life is not triumph but struggle. The essential thing is not to have conquered but to have fought well.”
  16. To be prepared to pay the price of greatness and achievement; Jesus Christ was crucified and killed before he rose from the dead to eternal life; Socrates had to drink the cup of hemlock and die before the world acknowledged his greatness; Siddartha had to renounce his place, his Kingdom and his family and wander for years before he became Buddha; the Mahatma faced bullets before he became the ‘Father of the Nation’.
