Reducing wastage of paper is stressed.Will my child earn enough if he/she takes up off-beat occupations? We cannot equate education with earning That it is happening is the biggest casualty of the field today What is the USP of your school What do you do differently here There are three things that we focus on here the achievement of the childrenthe satisfaction of the staff and that of the parents Management comes last because it is not as important as the core areas Everything revolves around the child We inculcate a scientific temper in our children because we want to train a generation of scientists and social workers Why the emphasis on social work There are sufficient individuals engaged in engineering and finance What the world needs is trained social workers Our children work with institutions for the blind We encourage them to be scribes for visually challenged children in their exams It is also the policy of our school to admit three visually challenged children every year How do schools justify the astronomical fees that keep rising each year Fees are only raised to a reasonable level We do not need too much moneyjust enough to maintain infrastructure and pay salaries But the schools responsibility does not end there As the Chairmanit is my duty to be accountable to every parent Every child from a topper to an unruly one is equal to me I am equally responsible for the development of the latter as I am for the former The guarantee I give every parent is that by the time their children pass out of the schoolthey will have will scored at least 60 per cent marks in their final examshave mastered at least one sport and picked up skills that will enable them to become self-employed What approach do you adopt in disciplining these unruly children Expelling an undisciplined child is never the solution When I charge fees from the parentsI have no right to throw the child out The key here is not to give up on the child and have equal sympathy and compassion for him/her We spend a lot more time with such children and counsel them because they require constant observation When we are faced with such a casewe look at where the teachers and principal may have gone wrong in addition to the child Through counsellingthe gap between and child and teacher is reduced If the teacher involved is dedicateda positive change can be brought about in the child Children are forceful individuals in their own right Even if a child cannot fit into the systemwe cannot say that he/she will never fit in Apart from counsellinghow else do you keep children well-behaved but engaged at the same time Yogawhen practiced from an early agereally aids mental development We have made yoga a part of the curriculum Every morningten minutes are set aside for yoga before prayers Children also practise yoga during their free periods Yoga is a wonderful gift and really helps them calm down In additionwe ensure that every child excels in at least one sport but dont force them to take part if they dont want to What is your view on the controversy over cartoons in the NCERT textbooks that erupted a few months ago The contents of the books produced by the NCERT are matchless and the textbooks are excellent at all levels Cartoons only play a minor role in illustrating and

can boards make life easier for visually challenged children We are appealing to the CBSE and the UPSC that these children be allowed to answer the exam in Braille It is a practical measure It is

Syria wearing a fearless grin instead of the black veil imposed by the Islamic State group The elderly woman was among hundreds of residents who returned this week to villages recaptured by the Syrian Democratic Forces a Kurdish-Arab alliance advancing on the jihadist stronghold of Manbij "For the past two and a half years I felt like I was living among the dead because of the terror that IS imposed on us" she said Wearing an indigo-coloured robe Aboud told AFP that she fled her village of Khirdeh located between Manbij and the Euphrates river along with other residents as SDF fighters approached last week Fighters of the Syrian Democratic Forces walk in the southern rural area of Manbij in Aleppo Governorate Syria Reuters Standing amid a gaggle of young children she said that when IS controlled her village she had been forced to wear the black full-face veil prescribed by its ultra-conservative form of Islamic law "Today a new life has started for us We’re so glad to be done with Daesh" she said using an Arabic acronym for IS An AFP journalist travelled to several villages where the SDF backed by US-led coalition air strikes has expelled IS Arab fighters from the Kurdish-Arab alliance chatted with residents and strolled between buildings some damaged by US-led coalition strikes or IS’s infamous car bombs ‘Being safe is enough’ Abu Mohammad 35 from the farming town of Abu Qulqul said life under IS rule was so expensive that some residents were tempted to join the jihadists "They used to tell us that whoever wants to live well must join our ranks but I refused I preferred to starve than to join them and oppress my brothers" he said His wife wearing a bright headscarf and carrying a toddler on her back held up her arm and began to ululate — a sign of celebration and joy "Just being safe is enough" she said On the outskirts of the village a suntanned man in a long robe and green vest took his flock of sheep out to the nearby plains Architect Khalaf al-Moussa from nearby Qana al-Tahtani said IS had imposed a system of fines and punishments during its rule over his hometown also east of Manbij "We couldn’t roll up our trouser legs while we were farming our land — every time we did they would fine us 1000 Syrian pounds ($2)" he said standing in front of a modest fruit orchard "If someone tried to criticise their behaviour they would sew his mouth shut for a while or they would cut his head off and hang him up for everyone to see" Moussa added ‘Burned our books’ People arrested by the jihadists were not seen again The villagers were so terrified that their friends and family would report them to IS that "you couldn’t trust your brother your father or your neighbour because of how afraid you were" Moussa said A fighter of the Syria Democratic Forces speaks with women in Haj Hussein village after SDF fighters took control of the village from Islamic State fighters in the southern rural area of Manbij Reuters In many of the towns and cities it holds IS has seized control of public institutions in a bid to project an image of a functioning corruption-free utopia But that was not the case in Qana al-Tahtani "We used to ask them to provide electricity for us and they would answer ‘Did the Prophet Mohammad have electricity’" Moussa said "And I used to say to myself ‘Did the Prophet have all of these weapons to terrorise people’" Rada al-Sayyad 18 said that IS jihadists had stopped him from going to school when they overran his village of Tal Aras east of Manbij two years ago "They burned all of our schoolbooks and they banned studying They started forcing us to take religious courses that taught us that Kurds teachers and other religious scholars are all infidels" he said IS has been dealt several major blows at the hands of a powerful Kurdish militia — the People’s Protection Units (YPG) — whose fighters make up the majority of the SDF In areas under its control IS has enforced its own religious education coupled with military training But now Sayyad said he can return to school and a life without IS "Things are relatively okay We’ll go back to school soon – back to our way of life before Daesh entered
