Sri Sri Ravi Shankar Vidya Mandir Dharavi, Mumbai, India

Rahul’s mother tells us his father is an alcoholic. She is the bread winner and works from 8am to 10:30pm. It’s no wonder that Rahul used to come to school with unkempt clothes and had an attention deficit disorder. We nurtured him all the same. In fact, when it came to exam time, a volunteer sat with him through the test time and prodded him to reveal the answers we knew he knew. He performed brilliantly.

Encouraged, Rahul now takes far more responsibility for himself than ever before. He takes pride in coming to school. His mother says he wakes up on his own and is ready for school at 5am! When she visits school her eyes well up with tears of gratitude...

Isn’t Rahul one of our many winners too?

“Teachers need to know that human physiology and human nature are very similar to atomic structure. Like in an atom, the central part is positive. The electrons or negative charge, are only on the periphery. Any negativity you find in a child is really on the periphery.”
