Babara Powell’s Interview
(Ed.: Editor, B.P.: Babara Powell)
Ed.: How do you feel being welcomed to TFS?
B.P: The Fabindia School is dedicated to shape up the young minds into epitome of knowledge. And these young children have utilized their knowledge in the best way to welcome me. But I feel they will be perfect over a little more span of time. Hence, I wish good luck for their future in order to become excellent citizen of the country.
Ed: What is your opinion about ‘Inclusive Education’ and how to realize it?
B.P: Education will remain half done till; even a single stone is unturned. So it is necessary to understand every child’s psychology. Then the teacher would be more comfortable teaching in class and child will be more comfortable while learning.
Ed.: What potential does TFS have?
B.P: TFS is the brand that is facilitating education in the rural peripheries. And rural land holds a lot of potential which need to be moulded. So TFS has potential which can be moulded into world class education.
Ed.: What difference do you find in the student of USA & India?
B.P: Student remains student, no matter where he is- be it USA or India. The difference is made by the kind of teaching the school gives. So I feel a change is required in the nature of teaching which is in practice for ages.
Ed.: How we can upgrade culture in school?
B.P: I feel a lot of activities must be organized in order to give children the grand exposure so as to make them grasp the standard and mannerism of real education. Also they should be given an opportunity to connect with extended world for them to perceive that where they are lacking and what they should acquire. And The Fabindia School will surely attain that level. I have faith in them.
Ed.: What message would you like to give to The Fabindia School?
B.P: My best wishes for all who are the part of this system. They should grow into their capacity and bring laurel to the school.

मानव में मानवता रहे।
मन में हो प्रेम हो
बुद्धि  ढृढ़ता हो
गर्व से अविकार रहे।
क्लेश का न  प्रवेश
न हो छल न हो न हो द्वेष
मन अमलीन स्वच्छ रहे।
नीज का अभिमान हो
जीवन हमेशा गतिमान हो
सूरज जैसा तेज चमके
चंदा जैसी शीतलता रहे।
मन में देश प्रेम रहे।
जीवन देश को अर्पित रहे।
मेरे हर कर्म में पवित्रता रहे
मानव में मानवता रहे।
