“Knowledge is inherent in every man’s soul”, quoted Swami Vivekananda. Swamiji himself lived a life of simplicity and worked towards reforming the Indian society and the education system in our country. Through his teachings, we learned that the teacher invokes the spirit of inquiry in the pupil, who is supposed to find out things for himself under the bias-free guidance of the teachers. He also made us realize that, for the proper growth of the child, the environment at home and the school play a major role. The parents, as well as the teachers, should work together to inspire the child by the way they live their lives. Living up to Swamiji’s ideals and in the pursuit of enriching student’s moral values, the Swami Vivekananda Bahiddeshiya Samajik Sanstha’s Kukadi Valley Public School & Jr. College, Yedgaon is founded by Mr.Sunil Thorve Sir.
