WITH THE BLESSINGS OF
Man cannot live in isolation, however great he may be. He depends on the society in every walk of life. Then it will become his bounded duty to give back to society from what he has received. It will indeed be a wasted life if he cannot pay back his debt to society, albeit in a little measure, during his lifetime. This can be achieved only if he is constantly tuned to the wants of the less privileged. Today the world is a boiling cauldron of social ills like illiteracy, ill-health, and poverty, compounded by natural disasters like earthquakes and floods.
If only each one of us takes up cudgels against just one issue and makes it our business to alleviate the problem. How wonderful it would be if each one of us has our mission to provide just one family with the basic necessities of Anna, Akshara, and Arogya i.e., food, education, and health. Social service should not be indulged in for the sake of fame or fortune. But it must be done with the spirit of doing one’s duty, and not as dispensing a favour. One should indeed feel blessed that he has been given an opportunity to serve the needy.
Education is a very important tool for everyone to succeed in life and get something different. Knowledge gained throughout the education period enables each and every individual to develop confidence in them. It opens various doors to the opportunities of achieving better prospects in life and hence promotes career growth. Education is the act of learning things around us. It helps us to easily understand and deal with any problem and balance throughout our whole life in every aspect. It is the first and foremost right of every human being. Without education, we are incomplete and our lives are useless. It helps us to set a goal and go ahead by working on that throughout life. Education improves our knowledge, skill, confidence level, and personality. It empowers us intellectually to interact with others in our life. It brings maturity and teaches us to live in a society with a changing environment. It is the way to social development, economic growth, and technological development. Education is an effort of the senior people to transfer their knowledge to the younger members of society. It is thus an institution, which plays a vital role in integrating an individual with his/her society and in maintaining the preservation of culture. It is an essential prerequisite of modernization. It enables people to know the world beyond their own surroundings and transforms them to become humanist in outlook and worldview.
School is the center, where children would learn to serve society. Teachers are like deities inside the temple. Never in the past, mere infrastructure made the institution’s great. The strength of any institution is its teachers. They are the real builders of the system. Hence, the responsibility of teachers along with the Principal is quite significant. Promoting the values in life and ethics in the work is very important. With this value and understanding, we hope our teachers of BGS International Residential School, Nithyanandanagar, Bengaluru will take the institution to mountainous height, for the betterment of the nation as a whole. I beseech Lord Kalabhyraveshwara Swamy and His Holiness Jagadguru Sri Sri Sri Padmabhushan Dr. Balagangadharanatha Mahaswamiji to bestow his choicest blessings upon one and all.
The BGS International Residential School was established in 1997. Over the last two decades, the school has made rapid strides in various fields from academics, co-curricular to sports. This remarkable progress is a matter of rejoicing. Today, children are born with multiple talents that need to be nurtured by parents, teachers, and society. In the school especially, these talents have to be identified, fine-tuned and opportunities to be given to bring out the best in them.
Children should also be given an opportunity to achieve all-round development which can be channelized later for the service of society. Reading and writing alone don’t make a complete personality. The nation needs children with proper education and good character to serve humanity with dignity, honor, and pride. I wish the members of staff, students all the best in working towards this noble goal.
