Gargi said, “Letter writing is on the verge of extinction, so it is important for children to know about its legacy and culture.” She made the students aware of the past means of communication and how a letter reaches its final destination in a fun filled and innovative way. This not only helped the students in understanding the evolution of communication but enhanced their creative, critical thinking and language skills as well.

Teaching aids have become an integral part of a classroom. They not only help reinforce a skill or concept but also relieve boredom by presenting information in an interesting way. Good teaching aids play a vital role in enhancing the teaching-learning process. So to recognize the latent talents of the teachers, CBSE organised the CBSE School Teachers’ Teaching Aids/Material Competition. The best entries were displayed at the National Sahodya Conference at Vigyan Bhawan, New Delhi in the presence of Union HRD Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal, Brahmakumari sister Shivani, CBSE chairperson Anita Karwal and other dignitaries.
