"To educate a man in mind and not in morals is to educate a menace to society."

Intellectual education influences the head and value based education influence the heart. Infact education that does not train the heart can be dangerous. If we want to build character of our children, homes and society, we must teach a minium level of moral and ethical literacy. Education that build a fundamental traits of character - such as honesty compassion, courage, persistence and responsibility - is absolute essential essential.

A person who is morally educated will be a lot better equipped to move up in life or succeed than will a morally bankrupt person with excellent academic qualifications.

The teacher has a great influence on the students. We cannot brush aside this responsibility. The student cater to their interests and motivate them to participate actively in the learning process. It is my conviction if we could provide solace sympathically and administer to the emotionally suffering heart of the student and relieve him of the nervous tension, He/she will feel emotionally secured and highly obliged to the institution, under such congenial atmosphere, the character of the student will positively under go a drastic change and the problem of indiscipline, defiance, disrespect and maladjustment will automatically be solved. It will make the learning process easy and also improve the teacher - student relationship.

The school magazine is not only a mirror of the school achievements but provides an excellent plate form to help students to develop their ingenuity and express their in herent thoughts.

Now I extend my heartiest thanks and best wishes to the students, guardians and all the members of H.S.P.S. family for the publication of the school magazine MANTHAN - 2011-12.

Good Luck to one and all.
