For imparting meaningful and creative learning it is important to place disciple in the first place.
Our learning techniques mainly focus to think critically and creatively not just by mugging bookish knowledge. To encourage quality education and hands-on dimension even to primary children it is necessary to educate one’s soul first which will define the intellect and its preferred sojourn.
