2015 Celebrations and Tributes

This year the Teachers of India stood up to applaud the contributions of the stalwarts who made the art & craft of learning so wonderful. We went nostalgic to recall our very first day as teachers. We recognized the hard fought battles we won to celebrate children,  child's right and childhood. Here is a refreshing of our memories of those days and events.

Thank you all.
