A compilation of the experiences of Class X students of Mirambika Free Progress School after 14/4

On the 14th of April, a public holiday, all our textbooks, books, charts, etc., were dumped into the ‘New Mirambika building,’ a development we were not even aware of, until the next day when were told to enter ‘school’ from Gate No.6.

Ever since the shifting of Mirambika to the Ashram, a “normal” day hasn’t really been a normal one.

    Children are being lauded for being compliant to the changes. So the poor kids, even when they feel they may have some thoughts about missing their old school, are suppressing it, as they’re good kids overall and want their parents to be proud of them. This is sickening for a healthy mental state of any human being. And what a setback in life for those kids.

    Suppress + smile = success.

    Must congratulate these parents for setting a new low for ‘what not to do with your own children’. There’s a handbook, they must order this and write in to include their own chapter titled ‘lessons for life from free thinking parents’.
