Class 10 students learn importance of balance

In an effort to teach students the importance of balance in life, Bunts Sangha’s SM Shetty and Junior College held a session called ‘Life Balance Sheet’ for Class 10 students recently.

The session, which was presented by the school principal Seema Sabhlok, dealt with focusing on the finer details of life in order to have a clear understanding of oneself and their life.

In the session, it was emphasized that a balance sheet of life includes Life Assets and Life Liabilities and the difference of these components gives one Life Foundation.

It isn’t merely a reflection of life but also a reflection of an individual too, students were told. The underpinnings of life can be made strong by making the best investment, which is, to make on oneself.

Sabhlok emphasised on how financial assets may come and go but an individual’s life balance sheet remains priceless. Having said this, even if one loses all that he possessed but, because of the knowledge and skills acquired and relationships cultivated, it will not be difficult at all to rebuild life once again if he has a very strong life balance sheet, students were told.

As part of the session, the students were asked to draw a balance sheet of their life. They were also asked to write letters expressing their gratitude and seeking forgiveness. “Both these activities were soul- stirring. Overall, it was a wonderfully designed session on self- introspection,” a school official said.
