Rabindranath Tagore Secondary School engraved its name in the field of education in Mauritius. This marvelous school surrounded by the Moka mountain range and situated between sugarcane fields strikes again. Kheelesh Poonye and Sooyash Dosonyee are the two laureates from the school.
The two laureates being lifted up and the students cheering.
Congratulations to those two laureates, all those pupils who participated in the exams, the fantastic teachers of the school, the rectors, the students and everyone! I also congratulate all the laureates of the other schools and all those students who participated in the exams. Remember, you don’t need to be a laureate or pass the exams to lead and make the world a better place. As Robin Sharma would have said it,
If you consume oxygen, you are a leader.
Do you know another school where you can find students loving their rector so much?
That guy in the picture is not a laureate but one of the persons behind them! He is our rector, Mr. Mahend Gungapersad. He has been the rector the school ever since its launch in 2003. RTSS owes its success to him. He is the man who inspired and keeps on inspiring the teachers and students. A great rector and a great person as well.
The students gathered, and they were definitely proud to be a member of this nest called RTSS.
As soon as it was announced that there are two laureates from RTSS, the students and teachers gathered in the assembly ground to celebrate. By the way, I was in the class in the second floor when suddenly I heard a guy shouting happily from below, “Aye, RTSS ine gagne 2 laureats!”. Friends started going out and sharing the news with the teachers and a few seconds later … The long bell rang.
A group of students celebrating the event.
When I first joined the school in 2007, most people didn’t even know about the Rabindranath Tagore Seconday School. And when they asked you where it is located, you would replied Ilot. This doesn’t end here because they wouldn’t know about this small village and then you would have to tell them that it is near Pamplemousses. Now, I believe that this peaceful and little village has become more popular because of the school.
Holding hands to move forward together. From left to right, the deputy rector, Mrs. Kavita Bhuckory, the rector, Mr. Mahend Gungapesad, the laureates, Kheelesh Poonye and Sooyash Dosonyee. The chairman of MGI, Mr. Ravin Dwarka, was also present.
The RTSS is a wonderful place, a Shantiniketan to be more precise. Great students, teachers, rectors, friends, gardeners and other non-teaching staff. Here, teachers motivate and inspire us. If you have a problem and ask a friend, he will definitely help you. We enjoy our studies. At RTSS, education does not come only from books. In fact, each year during the Gandhi day, senior citizens of the ashrams and our grandparents are invited to dance, enjoy and eat together. We learn to respect them and next time we would see them standing in the bus, we would definitely offer them our place. You don’t need to perform great acts, small acts matter. Students also participate in plays. In fact, at RTSS, we make better human beings to make a better world.
Firecrackers being lit. I head that there were two boxes full of them which were ordered.
All other schools should emulate RTSS and all of them stand a chance to be like it. I would also like to add that these pupils were not the best at CPE level but they got fantastic results. Gone are the days where we talked only about the so-called elites like QEC and RCC and we tried to worship them …
A few days ago, for the 5th consecutive year, RTSS also got 100% pass at the SC level. Today, we have 2 laureates and 9 pupils ranked. And that also means … 2 days of holidays! Next Monday and Tuesday, we won’t be having school. As they say in Kreol, zoli pont!
To conclude, the Tagorian dream came true. Mari so mari Tagore! But this is just the beginning. Each and every school have the possibility to become like RTSS and make the world a better place. To the all the youngsters out there, we are the present and the future. And we can lead without a title.
Music is a universal form of communication, cutting across all periods of history and all regions of the planet. Human beings were probably inspired to produce music by the sounds they heard in the world of nature, like birdsong and animal cries, which formed the background of their daily existence.
Holy cow! I hope Cambridge will not sue me for copyright infringement because I actually copied the above few lines from their recent examination paper. Seriously, you can check the paper if you are feeling studious by clicking here!
Now, everyone listen to music. These days, you can see companies like Apple releasing products such as the iPod for music lovers. Everyone has their own taste for music too. Some prefer Kishore Kumar while others prefer A.R. Rahman. We also have Justin Bieber fans and Linkin Park too.
I wanted to share my favorite artists and songs through this post. Actually, it feels good to write what you love and I hope that it is going to be beneficial for you too. The above album cover is that of Robot, the latest album released by A.R. Rahman.
One of the artists I listen to the most is actually A.R. Rahman. I first discovered the amazing songs of A.R. Rahman through Dil Hi Dil Mein. Later when I got faster internet, I started downloading some of his songs and burn them on an audio CD. Recently, I downloaded nearly all of his albums. Some of his albums I recommend are Dil Hi Dil Mein, Dil Se, Connections, Raavan and Robot.
Another artist I really love listening to is Michael Jackson. Truth to be told, I never knew about Michael Jackson until his death. All his songs, albums and live performances are just superb! The single I appreciated the most before becoming a fan was ‘Earth Song’. Some other great singles include ‘I Just Can’t Stop Loving You’, ‘Heal the World’, ‘Bad’ and ‘They Don’t Care About Us’.
Some other artists I occasionally listen to are The Beatles, Nusrat & Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, Kaya, Kailash Kher, Pink Floyd, Shakira, Elvis Presley, Linkin Park, Metallica and U2. You can check my profile on Last.fm for other artists.
There is also the song Munni Badnam which is currently trending in Mauritius. It’s not bad as a peppy song.
