Editor: Were you teaching somewhere else before you joined?
BRO: I had worked in Mount Abu, in St. Joseph’s High School for five years.
Editor: Where did you do your schooling from?
BRO: I did my schooling from Sophia High School, Mount Abu. I did my graduation from MLSU, Udaipur. I did my post graduation and B.Ed. from IGNOU, New Delhi.
Editor: What is your experience of working in Fabindia?
BRO: It has been a great experience, working in Fabindia. The love and respect given by kids, never made me think of leaving the school and going to any other place. I have learnt a lot in this school. I have also shared my experiences and imparted my knowledge to them.
Editor: What are the things you like the most in Fabindia?

Editor: What are the changes and development that has taken place in Fabindia till now?
BRO: The development that I have seen is only in the infrastructure in the school. From three blocks it has become seven blocks now. Two buses have now changed to seven. The strength of Fabindia increased from 250 to 700 students. The change in academics has not been what it should be. When I joined the school the standard of academics was very high but as years have passed, it has slowly gone down. This year many new developments have been made. Now I feel the standard will rise higher and reach the expectations that I had from the beginning.
Editor: What are the changes that you want in Fabindia?
BRO: I want my students to converse in English and want my school to be the best school in the state. I want each and everyone around to appreciate Fabindia. I want my students to do well, prosper and make their future fruitful. I want all only to speak about the Fabindian family.
Editor: What are the posts you are designated in the school?
BRO: I joined the school as an English teacher but the very first day I joined the school I made Activity Coordinator. Now I am the senior coordinator, H.O.D. English Department, Exchange Coordinator and English Editor.
Editor: Were you awarded the Best teacher award?
BRO: I was awarded the Best Teacher award in the year 2007. It was for the first time that the Best Teacher’s award was given in the school. A democratic way was implied to choose the best teacher. The parameters were given and the teachers gave the points in front of the teacher’s name. I got the highest total and as a result of that I was awarded the Best Teacher award.
Editor: Have you gone for any trips, organized by the school?
BRO: I have gone in all the trips which were organized in the school for students. I went to Shimla, Kullu, Manali, Dehradun, Haridwar, Mussorie, Jaisalmer, Jaipur and Hyderabad. In Hyderabad trip 12 students and I had gone to attend the seventeenth International Children’s Filmfare Festival. It was a great experience for all the students and they learnt a lot.

Somebody has said very correct that “something is better than nothing “,so we should keep doing work to get success. Success is not that you can buy it or not that you can take it from someone else but that which we have to achieve. If you want to achieve it you should work hard. To achieve it we should go through a correct way otherwise it would not be a correct one.
It’s not very rewarding to get success but it’s very rewarding to remain a successful person. Only people are not successful or unsuccessful but countries can also be categorized as successful or unsuccessful. What is a successful country? It not depends upon the success of the government of country but it depends on the success of the government of a country but it depends on the success of people of the country. There are three types of countries; first, which are successful, second, which are in the way to get success and third, which cannot become a successful one
At last, the development of any person, country or else is the success. So, we should keep working because success leads to liberation which is very important in one’s life.

तुम पाओ सफलता, तुम पाओ सफलता 
उस मन को वश में करके ।      
तुम डूब जाओ सफलता के सागर में 
एकाग्र होकर ।
तुम डूब जाओ उस सफलता रुपी कार्य में 
मग्न होकर।
तुम छोड़ दो सोचने सपने 
तुम छोड़ दो सोचना परिणाम ।
बना दो कमज़ोरी को अपनी ताकत 
हटा दो वह भय मन से ।
तुम पाओ सफलता, तुम पाओ सफलता 
उस मन को वश में करके ।

Tuesday, 2nd September: The day was as same as daily. The students were busy in studies. Small kids were enjoying the studies and activities held in their classes. All the teachers were teaching and students were studying. The day was enjoyable. As the students started enjoying the school days, the long days of Fabindia seem them to be small and they wanted the school time to be more long so they can enjoy much more. These things shows that the atmosphere of Fabindia has been changed from boring one to enjoyable.

Saturday, 6th September: As it was a holiday on Thursday, on Saturday the Thursday time table went on. For Class I to V PTM (Parent Teacher Meeting) was organised. The parents were welcomed at the gate by Ms. Urmila Rathod and Ms. Rajeshwari Rathod.
