News - Instilling human values
by Life Positive
MT has presently initiated a pilot programme called Creating Excellence in conjunction with One World Academy, Chennai. One thousand of their brightest will participate in this programme which aims to develop compassionate leaders who will create a greater destiny for themselves and the country.
The students, who will be appearing for the SSC exams next year, were chosen for the programme by virtue of a test on the lines of IIM and IIT entrance tests.
“Though we are turning out academically bright students year after year, we have observed that these students develop arrogance and fail to imbibe very human qualities like compassion. We also feel that most of these students are bookish and lack leadership skills. As a result of which they shy away from leadership responsibilities in the corporate world,” says Mahesh Shetty, moving force behind the tutorials.
“As human beings, we desire the very best, be it finance or physique, friends or fiancé. But for that to happen, it is important to be intelligent, not only in thought but also in application. It is also important to keep a tight check on destructive emotions and move away from pain to a place of intelligence and clarity,” says Prahasita, from One World Academy, who will be conducting the programme for MT.
The propelling factor behind the programme, therefore, is to teach students to resolve emotional disturbances and master the art of converting frictional energy into creative energy. Spread over a month, the programme will also involve the parents and teachers concerned. The programme will also teach the students to focus on relationships, with not only their parents, teachers and friends but also with oneself.
The focus will also be on living a life of purpose. “Some choose to live by power, some by pleasure. True leaders choose to live by love… love for another or love for a cause,” says Prahasita. The emphasis will be to reach out and co-exist, rather than live a “self-centric life with colliding interests”.
Mahesh Tutorials Educare is one of the biggest players in the private tutorials segment in India, with 190 centres, and has many firsts to its credit.
