A session on Demonstrating Life Skills

I was just a kid,

I clung and clutched to you for support, 

I looked into your eyes, 

Every time I moved ahead with my wobbly steps.

Soon under your able guidance, 

My tiny steps became confident strides!

As you involved me, in learning, by doing.

Today I proudly stand,

As a Young Adult to inculcate Life Skills!

You made me aware that now is the time,

 to reflect, and to adapt. 

You enthused me with confidence, 

To visualize

What do I want to be?

To become a better, me!

As I owe it to myself and India, My Motherland!

These were the sentiments echoed by each Pranganite as they prepared a role-play to present on What I want to be? And talk about the skills which will help them embark on this journey to happiness and success. 

The class is divided into three groups of 10 students each. Each group will present their role-play on respective Wednesdays. The students got inspired by various role models such as Kevin Richardson- the zoologist, Anahita Dhondy – The Celebrity Chef, Shakuntala Devi – The Human Computer,  Milkha Singh – The flying Sikh, Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam – The President of India and Aerospace Scientist,  Narendra Modi – The Prime Minister, Kalpana Chawla – The Astronaut, Anna Chandy- The First Female Judge, Mother Teresa, Doctor, Architects, Teacher etc.

They identified the skills which made them successful and showed interest to inculcate these skills to achieve their goals. The activity will culminate on 9th September.
