Why much importance to Sanskrit?
In present day India, Indians do not give and know the importance of Sanskrit in the present world. Sanskrit is an Indian culture but India is only lacking its importance. There abroad, NASA is using Sanskrit for coding in their researches and technology.
Other than that, if we chant Sanskrit Shloaks every day, it will positively affect our mind and health. It sharpens our memory. It is a miracle for speech therapy. If someone has speaking or pronunciation problem, it'll be definitely beneficial. It relaxes our mind.

STAFF: Ms. Prerna Rathod & Ms. Manisha Deora visited Iconic School, Bhopal on 27th July to conduct PLP Session there. There  Prerna Rathod helped them to complete the process of PLP Level I and shared the plan for Level II. Mr. R.P. Devgan discussed and shared his views on Chapter 1 - Conventional Vs Contemporary of the book Wanted Back Benchers and Last Ranker Teacher. 
First session by Devgan Sir:
A speech was given by Devgan Sir. He introduced himself and started a discussion on the profession of a teacher. What qualities does a teacher should possess?
I have learnt that a teacher should be dynamic, friendly, childish to a certain limit, he or she should have feelings for the children. A teacher should also possess corporate skills that are writing, listening and reading.
Lack of reading leads to insecurity. A teacher should not be ambitious - he or she should be for the betterment of the children. Exercise must be mandatory for the teachers as well as for the students for the physical and mental growth.
Second session - Blog post
All the educators of The Iconic School sat in their groups and  discussed about the chapter - 1 "Conventional Vs Contemporary School Management" from the book "Wanted back bencher and last ranker teachers". All of them wrote the articles with their groups in that chapter. They also made the charts for the presentation and explained them in front of all.
I have learnt that we should work as a team for the efficiency and effectiveness of the work.
