  • I have four teams in the Responsible Champions Class, named after Gandhiji, Mother Teresa, Mandela and Martin Luther King. Each is a champion (of freedom, love, civil rights). Today is Martin Luther King Jr's Birthday but since it is a holiday, we were celebrating and talking about his life in class yesterday.

    When I was talking about MLK's "I have a dream" speech and what he fought all his life for (civil rights for the African Americans & everyone living peacefully together), Sohail and Ganeshan teamed up and told me that "Bhaiya (Brother), see we are friends but our colour different. We like each other and play everyday together ". I had goosebumps hearing this from Sohail and seeing how they immediately internalised the idea of equality.

    I am so happy that my kids understood that the colour of the skln really doesnt matter; external beauty doesnt matter. What really matters is how good you are as a human being.
