Lalitha Kanwar! The name itself reminds all of us the time that was enough to justify our efforts in the welfare of the society. She was admitted to class 6th in 2001 and she topped school in AISSC Examination 2011 in humanities stream and now she has made us all proud by being the lieutenant. The time that never waits for anyone waits for those who always stand to make the mark on the firmament of achievements. Well done!
From the uncertain toddler steps, the school is on the way to confident adulthood and this ripple effect is positively affecting the lives around here in Gotan. From the members of the management, staff to our students – everyone is very involved in social service. We had dispensed our honourable duty to salute the martyrs of Kargil by instituting LK Singhania Education Sansthan Soldier Family Fund with a corpus of Rs. 30 lakhs. It is with the support of this fund that children bereft of fathers during the Kargil War have been and are being given education.
Lalitha Kanwar (School ID No. 01162) whose father too had a similar fate proved her mettle through her academics that got support of financial help from the LK Singhania Sansthan Soldiers Family Beneficiary Fund.
Education, at our school LK Singhania Education Centre, is not the privilege for the rich minorities. It works on the ethos of the upliftment of the societally marginalized masses. It was the reiteration of the management to develop competence amongst the children, particularly girl children to address their aim to make the Indian society a knowledge superpower.

Parents often wonder what parenting is all about. As there are so many variables in each person’s personality and behaviour, there is no single right or wrong way of bringing up a child. Each person’s past life determines his present concepts of parenting.
A parent is constantly on a journey of exploration. The pathway is cobbled with problems, surprises, complications and joys. However, each parent has a common goal of developing a better relationship with the child. Most parents are flattered and feel a sense of control when their child emulates them. But what about the time when you do not clearly see yourself in the child? As a parent you have certain expectations of how your child should behave, but his or her behaviour may not model your own. Your child may not behave in a way that you deem appropriate. His or her choices may be different from yours.
This shatters many parents.
By making fewer emotional demands, you will be able to get other needs met by your child. If you push your child against the wall, you will face resistance and defiance.
Letting her find her own way is often difficult, but it comes with long term rewards of trust and love.
Loving and concerned parents at times get disappointed when their growing children become independent and self-sufficient.
These are healthy signs.
You have to raise your children to be independent and emotionally self-sufficient, but at the same time loving and caring towards you.
The individuality of children needs to be respected.
If children differ from parents who have constantly and selflessly nurtured them or made sacrifices for them, they should not feel let down and neither should this lead to conflict in the relationship.
For as Kahlil Gibran has written-
‘Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you.
And though they are with you, yet they belong not to you.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts.
For they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls. For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you.’
