In the last 20 years, he has seen a tremendous need for nurturing the individual talents and potential of each student. Keeping alive the vision of carefully blending the values and wisdom of the past with the skills, knowledge and emotional and varied preparation of students and educators, for the unknown future, has been a motivating challenge, which he has cherished. “Embracing change – in technology, in lifestyles, in future careers,” according to him, “ is an art to be inculcated carefully”.
He has been a strong proponent of Howard Gardner’s ‘Multiple Intelligences’ concept as well as Daniel Goleman’s ‘Emotional Intelligence’ and its deep impact on the well-being of children and adults alike in the future success and stability.
