’Education is the kindling of a flame, not the filling of a vessel’’, said Socrates over 2000 years ago. In this present century, we find ourselves standing at the cross roads. The road that leads to perspective and perfection, power and plenitude, pleasure and performance are also the roads littered with despair and discontent, distrust and destruction, displeasure and disregard.

Perhaps, every generation laments the fall in moral values of the younger generation. A change is needed, from vision-without to vision- within, to bridge the gap between what is and what ought to be.

Acknowledging the need for values to make life complete, meaningful and secure may be the first step towards the creation of a future society that is firmly founded on a strong and wholesome value system.

Inner refinement and growth become imperative. Schools play a crucial role in mission oriented learning with a definite value system. The Integrity Club of our Vidyalaya make sincere efforts to inspire and re-kindle the values in our children. We execute a variety of activities to enrich and ennoble them and to develop them as good human beings. It is our fervent desire that value oriented education initiates introspection, good thinking and reflection filling the vacuum that is being generally felt in today’s complex competitive society.

We cannot expect children to be epitome of values, but everyone has in him something his own, a strength, a spark. They have unquestionable capacity to elevate their life by a conscious endeavour. The task is to find it, develop it and use it.

Sharing a value is uplifting a value. This book is the simple reflections of the young minds and a humble attempt to make them realize that ‘It is the spiritual light that glows inside us which ELEVATES US.

Hope their vision turn to be a beacon light with an eternal glow that will guide the sea of humanity in the coming ages.
