Swami Vivekananda said among hundreds of things, "Take up an idea, think of it, dream of it, let all your veins, brains and muscles be full with that idea and just forget all other ideas; success will be yours!".
Columbia Global School is translation of a dream and an ideal into reality. Columbia has already achieved high standards in academics and we are proud of it and are thankful to God Almighty. We are aiming to achieve much more – totality of all round education. We realise India’s future is being moulded in India’s classrooms. And we are trying to create excellence in our classrooms.
The dream is of a resurgent India, which can bring back the glory of ancient India, where material, intellectual and spiritual advancement went hand–in-hand. The India of Buddha and Shankaracharya, Vardhamana and Guru Nanak. The India of Askoka, Chanakya, Vivekananda and Mahatma Gandhi.
But where are we now? We are a nation of over 1.2 billion struggling for existence. Many are very pessimistic about a revival for India. I beg to differ from them! India can have a glorious future if only we find out all that is good in our past and put into practice at least one idea of any one of those eminent men of ours. This is only one of the many things we can do.
