This piece is written on the occasion of 100 years of Modern School.
As far back as I can remember I have been a part of the Modern School Family.
As a toddler, when I used to go with my parents to drop my brother at school, I used to get visibly excited. I would dream of walking with him through the majestic gates. The world on the other side seemed magical. And it was.
My family often wondered why I got excited. I was unable to express myself then – but all I wanted to do was go into that building with red bricks and green lawns. I would see children playing and I wanted to be there with them.
I wanted to be a part of the ‘Blue family’. And I did become a part of it.
My school is now 100 years old. A few words about who she is to me, and what she stands for.
She shows us the way, while letting us carve our own paths in life.
She wants us to do what is right.
She does not care what your religion is, or your caste is, or your affluence. All she cares about is to give her best to make you the best.
But, where did these ideologies come from?
It comes from the is the vision of the founders of this incredible institution. It was their vision to provide children with the best of education, best of facilities and, of course, all that with love and compassion.
As we move towards shining 100, I take a pledge to remain a Modernite always, forever. It is a wish come true to be able to study in this great institution. I will make the Blue family proud.
After all, blue is what runs through my veins.
