CEDx Talk Show , Creative Society of Happy People…..

Mr. Priyadarshni Nayak, Founder and CEO of GTE India participated in a Talk Show with Ms. Archana Narain.  When Mr. Nayak asked Ms. Narain what makes the society happy, she replied, that society will be happy when all  the members of the society will be contented.  The lockdown has brought about a lot of generosity which was hidden within.  Several NGOs and common people went out of their way to perform acts of charity.  They also realized the importance of thrift and appreciated people who helped us. When quizzed about the importance of  Value Education, she said it is essential as it reinforces core values which are generally forgotten. These values have to be taught and re-enforced in school, so that our children turn out to be humane and carry a sound character, which has roots in our tradition.  She said that with parents becoming busy with their own jobs and the society becoming nuclear family oriented the onus of imparting value education is now on the schools. While talking about the importance of AI she stressed that any new innovation in the field of education is always welcome. Change is the essence of progress.   AI has brought in a 4th revolution and is going to bring  about more transformation in education. Therefore, school has  adopted  AI  in order to train and equip our students to be  prepared for the future. Mr. Nayak wanted to know how her school is preparing itself to receive students after the lockdown was lifted.  Ms. Narain said that the school was following all the guidelines and directives of the Ministry of Health and CBSE. The school is in talks with the vendors to ensure maximum protection of the children. Most importantly she said she would invite parents to also participate in this preparation process so that they can satisfy themselves that their children would be safe in the school. Mr. Nayak appreciated Ms. Narain’s, vision and her efforts as an educator and as a Head of the Institute.
