Many of us want to serve the society. We have numerous ideas of how to make the lives of the people in need better. But do we actually implement them? Dr.V.Uma (Masters in Mathematics, Education Management, Hindi, Sanskrit and Wasteland development) and her husband Mr.R.N.Muthuram(B.Com., M.Com., Masters in Education) have dedicated their whole lives to social service. At the age of 10 itself, both of them along with a group of their friends began helping to clean the school ground...

Whether or not we are content with this fact, our childhoods shape who we become as adults. The kids with whom we play with and the activities that we do, shape our experiences and the stories that we tell each other as adults. Everything we learn as a child comes from our friends, our teachers and our families. Growing up, I was very close with all of the other kids in my apartment, and we all hung out together immediately after school until it was time to go to bed. I was the o...

Children of the modern era are tragically deemed to be victims of technology and development: all forms of advice and suggestions are admonished by them as old-fashioned and things of the past. What is truly appalling is that prevalent adages and quotations that were based on logical and coherent reasoning have eventually become disjointed, disoriented and misread with the passing of time. This deterioration does not occur only as time prolongs; it also transpires depending on the...

Common callings. They unite us. They form the basis of conflict-free multicultural societies. Whether it's the people of an oppressed nation, letting go of their past disputes, and working together to achieve freedom, or simply the students of an international school, accepting each other's cultures as they strive towards receiving an education. It is their calling that binds them. We have our calling. Our planet is dying. Global warming, pollution, depletion of natural resourc...

“Global” is a big word to use – it seems to us that the globe is so geographically large that it creates a mental barrier that separates us from other countries. To try to institute the idea of “Global Citizenship” is mentally vexing due to this overwhelming notion. However, the rate of advance in human technology has been so rapid that communication and travel are much easier and faster than before, so in terms of spreading messages worldwide, the world has become a much...

Greetings, I am Hayagrish, a student of Lalaji Memorial Omega International School in Chennai, India and I would like to share my views on the importance of being a global citizen in this multicultural world. Every problem in the world, every global conflict whether it takes place hundreds of thousands of miles away, or right next door, is a global one. It’ll take a global effort with global citizens to stop them. We have a duty to protect each other as humans. It is time tha...

It is really nice to see the positive impacts of cultural diversity and find so many examples and case studies of how and when they are implemented. They can increase the profit of companies, increase equality between people, empower people, and have less stereotypes, etc.. I mean there are thousands of perspectives which show the positive side. However, like a coin, it has two sides. Cultural diversity may be the door to a world based on relationships built on care and love of one...

Anthropomorphic studies have shown that man has evolved to the present state from common ancestors. Diversity has indeed two possible notional outcomes - either of accepting everyone equally, as Mother Teresa did, in the spirit of one humanity or else engage in conflicts and violence. However, in the present times, the younger generation has been showing a great deal of genuine acceptance of other youth with an open-mindedness and lack of cultural differences. If some youth are...
