Om Sri Sai Ram
Nature in her pristine glory at the Phulgaon School, witnessed the preparations for the premier ‘Go Live Ceremony’ of the Sri Sathya Sai Vidya Vahini Project. The school swirled with a flurry of activities and the entire environment was lively and enthusiastic.
The classroom in which the first value based session was to be delivered to the students was spruced up thoroughly and decorated aesthetically with flowers. Magnificent photographs of Beloved Bhagawan’s smiling face and Abhaya Hasta, adorned the walls. To deliver the value based education with a more technical and animated methodology, the classroom was equipped with a Computer system and its peripherals. Certainly this was the foremost and supremely blessed classroom, to witness a value based education taught in a unique and appealing manner.
The technique employed here was the first in the history of Indian Education System.
A blessed moment indeed!
