Tracing back to Education in the Vedic Period, one finds the existence of the Gurukul system, where students after attaining a certain age were sent to Gurukul, to study and learn. Indian epic Ramayana mentions the “ashrama(s)” of Sages Viswamitra and Vashishth; Mahabharata mentions the ashram of Dhronacharya who taught Arjun and made him the best in Archery.
Now the question is what really “makes” a school in contemporary times? The answer lies in the following Doha :
My argument through this is, you can make a marvellous building, get world-class infrastructure, air-conditioned classrooms in some cases, best-structured laboratories, and informative libraries but what is the point of all this if there is no Teacher to teach and no student to learn? Thus it is the Teacher and her students that really “make a school,” without them it is just a building.
