ToI Journalist is pleasantly surprised on an interaction with a Bengali parent from Akal Academy, Baru Sahib

Tejeesh Singh, a journalist with Times of India and a dedicated supporter of Baru Sahib, recently had the privilege of hearing a heartfelt testimony from a parent based in Kolkata, Bengal. The parent shared how Akal Academy Baru Sahib had profoundly impacted her son’s life, leading to remarkable positive changes.

Tejeesh, refraining from disclosing his association with Baru Sahib, sought an honest and unfiltered perspective about the school. The parent narrated her initial concerns about her son’s increasing aggression and her reluctance to enroll him in the renowned but plagued-by-drug-abuse schools of Bengal or Dehradun due to their high costs.

Her encounter with Akal Academy Baru Sahib, however, proved to be nothing short of miraculous. She expressed profound gratitude for the school’s transformative influence, noting significant improvements in her son’s mental and physical well-being. Additionally, she shared how her own life had been positively impacted, leading her to quit drinking since her son’s admission to the academy.

Impressed by the school’s progressive practices, such as gender-neutral uniforms and fostering a sense of value through resource-sharing among students, the parent highlighted the school’s unique approach to education. Notably, practices like providing one pencil for a week’s use and sharing erasers among six children underscored the school’s commitment to instilling values of frugality and resourcefulness.

Tejeesh’s Reflections

Tejeesh Singh, reflecting on this poignant testimony, acknowledged the profound impact of Akal Academy Baru Sahib in shaping not only academic excellence but also nurturing exemplary human character. He emphasized the importance of such testimonials, which serve as a testament to the dedication and hard work invested in molding students into not only scholars but also compassionate and responsible individuals.
