Saarthak 2015: an exercise in teambuilding & leadership

Quodsi everti ancillae vim qui lorem persius petentium Saarthak 2015: an exercise in teambuilding & leadership

Meerut, Nov 9 (ENA) All roads led to Kanohar Lal Postgraduate Girls College last weekend as the campus was the venue of the most looked forward to annual intercollegiate educational event of the district – Saarthak 2015.

On the grounds, the air was rife with excitement as bright-eyed students welcomed each visitor, eager to showcase charts and demonstrate models, displaying their prowess of the subject. 

Driven by students of all the institutions under the K L Trust Society, the process of organising Saarthak is more meaningful that the final outcome in itself, coordinator of the Trust, Neha Sharma told ENA. 

“While the themes are conceptualised jointly by teachers and students, it is the students that plan and execute the whole exercise.  The process acts as a hands-on learning experience and at the same time inculcates the virtues of responsibility, team-work and leadership,” she explained.

Each of the exhibition stalls were set up on the sprawling campus grounds.  As the name implies, ‘Commerce at your doorstep’ was an offering of Commerce Department that prominently displayed information about Financial Institutions – both Central and State level, Market structures and Income Tax among others.

Taking education beyond the confines of academic curriculum, rote learning and examination system, the event was a platform that nurtured the students’ creativity and curiosity.  That much was obvious as the commerce students engaged visitors in little games and quizzes even as they articulated the knowledge they had gained.

Given an opportunity to question, explore and find answers to their queries made education more interesting as their career opportunities become clearer and life more meaningful for those young women.

When asked about their future plans, Priya wanted to be a teacher while Rashmi Rai wanted to study for an MBA; Rupali Jain was determined to be a banker and Sakshi Tyagi an Income Tax official.

Education to equip our students to play a meaningful role at home, workplace and in society with emphasis on their employability has been the mission of the Kanohar Lal Trust all along and going by what the students have said, the organisation is on the right path.

Most of the students that attend institutions that come under the Trust are from underprivileged families and providing them access to education is an opportunity to expand their horizons beyond the confines of their homes and town even.

Other exhibits at the event were conceptualised by various departments with interesting titles such as – World of Knowledge, Knowledge with Entertainment; World of Technology, The golden tree of literature.  While the Psychology department focussed on gender equality, History focussed on Ancient India; Home Science laid emphasis on Work simplification and health habits, Sociology on Careers, and Biology on the human brain to name a few.
