Welcome to Orientation Class XI Session 2013-2014

Report
The Tagorean emblem represents
three
letters T I S. The central I is the
leaping flame of the candle,
signifying everlasting knowledge,
enclosed by T which forms the arm
and legs of the child who is never
tired in his quest for this 'Vidya' or
knowledge. Like the light of the
candle, the child is continuously striving to reach for the stars.
" I am worthy " says the child.
This is the simple Tagorean philosophy: ' Belief in Self '.
" I Am What I Am.
I am the Truth and Joy Forever."
