Sourav Ganguly, Saina Nehwal, Zakir Hussain, Deepika Padukone, all of these are names that we all know. Are any of them related to the field of education? No!

It is about the overall development of our personality. We study many subjects in our school. But do we excel in all of them? No! We excel in some of them. Similarly, the potential of the students, lies not only in excelling in their studies. Somebody can be an average student but may be an excellent dancer or an artist. We should not judge a child’s capability only on the basis of their marks. We should try to bring out the inner talent of the child and nurture it so that the child can do what she/he likes.
