It is always nostalgic to speak of the beginnings, that too when it’s eventful and a travel of 25 years. I understand that most of the success stories have a humble beginning. We too had one, but as humble as One Student for the 1st six months. I will not tell you that we have re-invented the schooling. But for this region and adjacent districts, it was almost that. All I did is to change the things which I did not like as a teacher Introduced Nursery for the 1st time, Introduced 20:1, student-Teacher ratio for the 1st time in this region. These coupled with the decision not to advertise school as a commodity or business made it difficult for the people to understand and for us to explain to them.
