Given the number of hours our children spend watching Television, movies, media & playing video games it is imperative that our teachers engage them in a meaningful conversation on various issues, watch videos together with them to help them differentiate between right & wrong, give them a moral compass to develop a positive belief system. We believe beliefs drive behaviour & in this world of disintegrating values, developing a culture of caring & loving all, teaching good virtues like respectfulness, integrity, perseverance, hard work, co-operation, working for common good over personal gain will guide them to make correct choice & take tough decisions.
Today’s girl is tomorrow’s mother. In the Indian context, a woman makes maximum social & economic impact & is responsible for upbringing. India already debilitated by extreme poverty & illiteracy has to fight deeply entrenched social evils like child marriage, Purdah, dowry, female infanticide & discrimination against girl child education. These evils can be overcome by educating the girl child & not by reservations in panchayats & parliament alone. Empowerments have been more successful when women are put in the forefront as in the case of microfinance schemes, supporting the women entrepreneurs or supporting self-help groups. Empirical evidence points to many of the Govt. rural development programs like population control, polio eradication, operation flood being successful due to women participation. So educating the girl child would amount to educating the family, society & ultimately educating India.
