A Day in the Life of Jnana Prabodhini Student
The day starts with the student entering the premises around 10.30, bowing at the entrance of the school, as they feel that the school is a temple of knowledge. The bell rings and the Pragrani odrers, 'Prabodhini Attention', its time for prayers. All the students start for the Upasana Mandir ( Auditorium) in rows. The prayer commences with the National anthem. It is followed by 3 students speaking on the given topics. Then 5 shlokas from 'Geeta-Geetai' are recited. Assembly ends with it and the students return to their classes. Now its time to get to their assigned classes for Mathematics and English. Doing sums, participating discussions, debates , performing a skit, reading .... continues till the lunch break. All gather in the hall, sit in circles with their friends , recite the prayer and enjoy food. The bell again remindes them to return to classes. Lectures continue. A teacher is reading out a story, someone is making them recite Sanskrit shlokas, some students are busy in the labs with their projects , some are doing reference work in the library or reading books. Thus go the periods and its time to 'Express' oneself. The Expression skills period brings with excitement and curiousity and a lot of fun as children are learning instruments, sclptures, making rangoli, vocal music, drawing, painting and so on. The teachers are giving guidelines and children are coming up with creative outputs. No one knows how an hour has passed. The bell at 4.30 again reminds them to stop and proceed further to the physical activities. Children quickly change and get ready for the evening sports activity. There they mix with children from other classes in their own 'Pathak' (group) and warm up and play kho-kho, kabaddi, do gymnastics and yoga for an hour with their guide, 'a Dada' who is six-seven years older than them. Another day they would be singing inspirational songs or engrossed in listening to motivating stories of patriots, kings and freedom fighters. Then the day ends with the singing of the school prayer and everyone gets back home around 7 p.m. with many plans in the mind waiting for the next day.
