Ordinarily, my morning begins with a cup of coffee and publishing the morning news on our website but today's morning was a little different; the strong chill breeze and the pouring sky accompanied me as I sat at the Indira Gandhi International Airport, Delhi at 9:15 am with a hot cup of cappuccino that tasted a little better. Why did it taste a little better, though? Headed for London to attend a world-class ed conference as part of ScooNews makes that vital difference!
By 11:30 am, the Indian delegation travelling on our flight had assembled at the boarding gate with smiles bigger than their suitcases. Delhi's cold weather was compensated with warm hugs, pulsating laughter and handshakes on who's going to be more excited for London! Almost everyone wore the tricolour badge, feeling proud, knowing that they're representing the country at an international conference. As a student, I've always seen my teachers and principal in a formal setting; to be able to see these reputed men and women in an informal setting and to experience the "travelling life" with them makes the student in me happy. Yes kids, your principals love to chatter too and they do know how to have fun with their friends. Now that I think about it, conferences are a great way for them to be able to learn and have fun at the same time; they rarely get the time to go out of their offices, where they work tirelessly, and have a light interaction. Events like FICCI Arise and Learnit conference provide a chance for them to be part of a group and transfer the refreshing learning experience to the growth of their organisations. I was snapped out of this thought by a roaring sound of laughter from the old and new group of friends.
As hugs and laughter lit up the room, Arunabh Singh, Chairman- Uttar Pradesh (West), FICCI Arise, called everyone together for a group photograph. Click Click! And we were all set to board the airplane. Did the laughter and the chatter stop? My attention was caught by the mini meeting between CBSE and FICCI Arise officials, prepping on some important points for the Learnit conference.
What's a Tuesday like where you get to see school principals, directors, chairmen and influencers come together and become kids who are thrilled for the journey ahead? I'd say it's the best kind of Tuesday.
