It is Marian Wright Edelman, the American activist for the rights of children and the founder of the Children’s Defence Fund (CDF) who said that “education is for improving the lives of others and for leaving your community and world better than you found it.” She has been ameliorating the living standard of the under-privileged Americans for decades by emphasising on the inevitability of education of the marginalised children of her society. Polishing the quality of education among the already educated ones leaves nothing much to feel proud or boast about while educating the have-nots and under-privileged sections of the country succours in nation building. I strongly feel that Edelman’s words are absolutely true when it comes to what we have been doing in B.B. Nagar for two decades. We found the village children of the vast land, situated amidst the sugar-cane fields, engrossing in physical fitness and fixating their career either as army-personnel or farmers. They were students who lacked proper career guidance and care in order to think above and ahead these binaries. It was at this juncture that Delhi City School came into existence in B.B. Nagar.
