Chairperson Indira Group of Institutes

Dr. Tarita Shankar
Chairperson, Indira Group of Institutes, Pune.

People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle. But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth. Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don’t even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child–our own two eyes. All is a miracle.

Truly, the curiosity in the eyes of a child is indeed a miracle. Very often we wonder where this miracle vanished when the child grew up, unable to maintain and strengthen this essential ingredient that alone can ensure the attainment of near impossible dreams. These miracles we found had vanished into the rumblings of what we call ‘lifestyles’, of the rush of the stakeholders- parents, school teachers, elders, to meet deadlines, of lonely hours spent waiting for Dad and Mom….and of course,  answers to his questions.

Indira firmly believes that it is essential for the child and the child in the adult, to nurture the spirit of enquiry which is at the base of all achievement- be it in science, industry, sports or any other.  This is what spurs the individual to greater levels of perseverance and effort, to seek answers to the eternally alive question that trouble their soul. It is this spirit of enquiry that Indira Kids has pledged to cultivate and encourage – no child will be discouraged from seeking answers to questions that plague his mind, every child will be encouraged to think and learn, rather than the other way, thus paving the way for him to benchmark his own achievements vis a vis answers he receives to his questions.

An enabling environment that promotes community living and studying, a sports culture that is inclusive rather than subjective, and where values are typically Indian, and teachers are handpicked to make that crucial difference to the child’s development when it matters the most – when he is still a child. That is why the children of Indira stand out for their remarkable ability to query, obtain and retain the answers that help them to take on greater challenges in the years ahead of them. These are all the attributes that Indira brings to the task of making your child not just a knowledgeable and aware individual, but also a truly responsible and considerate citizen of India.

Welcome to Indira Kids, Welcome to a world of wonder.
