Saving The School KFI
“Looking back to the time we moved off from the school, our respect for The School has grown leaps and bounds. Until we stepped out, we never realized what we really lost. The school was not just educating us, but was also enhancing us as an individual. The school has been instrumental in making us what we are and has also helped us identify our many talents we didn’t know existed. We have immense pride in saying that the learning from the school in fact helped us cross the hurdles in life with answers that we found inside us." - these are the feelings and thoughts that most of the alumni have. And most of us want our children to learn in similar lines and be imbibed with similar values that we have accrued from this school. For people with strong affiliation towards the school, it has come to be a shock that your esteemed institution does not want The School to operate in your premises beyond 2016. The news was a heart breaker. Even though we know that this journey is going to be short, lots of people, alumni as well as others who have had no previous connections with the school, have put their children in the first standard. The children do not know yet that they might not be going to the same school after 2016 and we do not have an answer if they want to know why the school had to be move out of the premises. For every kid, this school is a forest where he/she can learn by looking around and not just by looking at the black board. The campus is a heaven for all the children and they enjoy being close to the nature all the time. This impacts the minds of the children in a positive way and also imbibes in them a sense of responsibility towards the nature; we are sure which is very important in this age of global warming. We are not sure if we will be able to find a similar campus for the children in the city so The School can carry on its noble work within the city itself. We would request you to consider these children’s feelings and their love for the campus which has made them love nature and given them an opportunity to be close to it. As alumni, we humbly request you to take a decision, which would put smiles on our faces. In the ages to come, let our children remember Theosophical society for its generosity and its compassion for the joy of the fellow men and women and not for anything lesser. Lest alone, we do not feel righteous about the campus, but it is off the same feeling of bird fluttering when the tree's branch gets axed. The bird does not own the branch, the tree does not oppose the bird, but it is the axe that brings the disharmony. Hope the executive council will remove the axe and will remove the doubts in our hearts; after all it is love that unites both of us. Eagerly looking forward to your positive reciprocation.
