What does school mean to me? In one word it means success. This word success means so much to me, and it is something that I want to obtain. I have always loved school in fact, I was the one who would get emotional over not receiving an A.


The years of fruition

When a family moves to a new place, it is the kid who finds it the most difficult to cope up with all the sudden changes that he/ she has to put up with. Leaving behind your friends, school and surroundings that you’ve grown up in seems like the worst of nightmares. Your parents coax you day in and day out just to make sure you adapt. Yet, as a kid, all you hope for is a miracle that could put you back in time.


A great man once said; it is not the destination that matters but the journey itself. I couldn’t understand what he referred to as. I mean, we undertake the entire journey just to reach our presupposed destination. How can the journey matter so much then? 

Gurukul gave me the answer to this question.


Alexander Graham Bell once said," A man, as a general rule owes very little to what he is born with, a man is what he makes himself". True it is, that seldom does it make a difference what a man is born with, but what a man does in his life,and how he does it is what defines him.A person embarks upon the journey to make a mark in life from the moment he enters a school. School is a place where his personality is nourished, where he learns the lessons of life that no other place can teach him. School is  where a person discovers what he is capable of, and to what heights he can reach if he streamlines his capabilities in the correct direction and it is not just an  institution that he is a part of, but it is a part of life.

And that's exactly what this institute provides keeping in mind the overall growth growth of it's students.


Schooling is the first and the most significant step on the ladder of success. Though it was mere serendipity to take admission in Gurukul The School, later I realized the skills I inculcated during my school life.
