Abhay N. Hari attended the Pennsylvania School for Global Entreprenuership (PSGE) Summer program held at Lehigh University, Pennsylvania from 30th June to 30th July 

I, Abhay N Hari, of class XI D attended the Pennsylvania School for Global Entreprenuership (PSGE) Summer program held at Lehigh University, Pennsylvania from 30th June to 30th July as one of two students selected from India.

The PSGE program is a global platform for students to attain real life business and entrepreneurial experience and skills. 76 students representing 18 countries participated in this program. Not only were the students I met extremely smart and well-informed, they were also extremely social and forthcoming. I spent many nights discussing various global issues with Palestinians, Russians, and French, all keen to express their view-point; eager to talk.

The courses we had were great and the professors there were amongst the best around. I had an amazing time deliberating on ethical conflicts, analyzing investment opportunities, understanding markets and a host of other engaging topics they made us work on.

We also had many events where we had to come up with an idea, prepare a business model and pitch it to 'investors.' Such experiences were extremely enriching as we got a taste of how the world out there was, and what it took to be successful.

In all, the 4-weeks I spent at Lehigh University, Pennsylvania were amongst the best of my life. Not only did I learn, in abundance, the ways and nuances of the business world, but I also made ever-lasting friendships with some of the brightest, most talented people one's ever likely to meet.

I look forward to applying all that I learnt and leveraging my experience in the times to come"

 CHINESE PREMIER WEN JIABAO VISITS TAGORE INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL, VASANT VIHAR on 15th December 2010

15 December 2010 would go down in the history of Tagore International School, Vasant Vihar when the Chinese Premier, His Excellency, Mr Wen Jiabao walked the portals of the school and paved the way for furthering the ‘China - India friendship’ effort. The visit to the school was part of the dignitary’s itinerary on the first day of his three day visit to India. The school was indeed privileged to be the only one to be visited by such an imminent personality where he got an opportunity to interact with the school children.The Chinese Premier immediately struck a chord and won the hearts of each of the student and teacher delegates with his informal and warm interactions

To all such questions he kept a smile on his face and answered each of them graciously.

The programme began with the Principal Ms Madhulika Sen welcoming the esteemed guest, giving him a brief about the school’s endeavour for the past four years, to strengthen the ties between the two emerging super powers. HighlightIing on the need for collaboration and cooperation in the area of learning, she spoke about the school’s initiative to have encouraged various student and teacher exchange programmes with the sole intent to understand the similarities in the values, culture and history of the two countries. She mentioned about the school being the only Indian school to have been represented in the Performing art and cultural festival held at Shanghai in 2007

Gladly accepting one of the student’s suggestions if he could be addressed as ‘Grandpa’ Wen, the premier spoke on topics which varied from Rabindranath Tagore, yoga, calligraphy to how the Chinese students felt about the Indian students. He said that the students in China believed that the two countries, whose combined population is 2.5 billion, would represent the revitalization of Asia and would have global impact. Referring to Rabindranath Tagore as the Great Indian Saint poet, he added that Tagore has been a big influence on writers including Liang Qichao, Bing Xin and Xu Zhimo and is a household name in China. He described Geetanjali as a collection of religious poems, full of the message of “benevolence, love and high moral standards”. The Chinese Premier surprised the students with the vast knowledge he had of the poet. When he asked the question how much would he be graded for this he was promptly replied a 10-on-10.

Happy to know about the introduction of Mandarin in the CBSE curriculum from 2011, he was positive that this meaningful step would give a boost and strengthen the bond between the two emerging economies. Taking the first step in this direction, he presented the school a thousand books, audio and visual material to help the students learn the language. The Premier himself demonstrated the traditional Chinese Art of calligraphy to the group of students who have been learning calligraphy in virtual classrooms through video conferencing with ‘The Jinyuan Senior High School’ in Shanghai, China. This video conferencing has been continuing on a regular weekly basis not only in calligraphy but also in yoga with the same school for the past two years. The Principal Ms. Sen presented a 3 - feet sculpted figure of Gurudev Tagore made by the renowned sculptor Ram V. Sutar, along with Tagore’s biography.
