With continuously evolving technology, lifestyles are also fast changing. Kids of today get an exposure to the entire world today through technology and they are much more aware of the latest happenings around them now, than earlier times. Parents face a lot of challenge in raising the smart kids of today. We all wish to develop children that are not just modern but are good and sensitive human beings, whose vision is not narrow but broad, who have discretion to choose the right from wrong, who are responsible and who have a positive outlook. Unfortunately, these human qualities cannot be taught in modern day schools and by its teachers. This has to be done by the parents and teachers jointly. 
Children & youths of today will be the architects of the society and the world of the new millennium. The seeds of proper development of their personalities need to be sown in right away, because, childhood & adolescence is supposed to be the best phase of life for inculcation of righteous tendencies (susanskaras). A young mind and sentimental core is like soft wet clay, which can be molded in any desired form. 
The program was well appreciated by principal Bina Gole Madam and the whole team of Vivekanada Education management.
