A Visit to Alwar, Rajasthan

In the early days of a hot and sticky March, the team paid a visit to Alwar in Rajasthan. Our destination: The Sagar School – a residential community school where the winner of our January Essay Contest is a student. We saw the beautiful campus, answered a lot of study-abroad questions, and met some of the competition participants. First prize winner, Christy Nameirakpam, is a Class 10 student from Manipur, India - and was the excited recipient of the Samsung Galaxy Tablet! On receiving her prize, Christy told us: “Education is right there inside each and every one of us, we just have to nurture the good side of it.” We couldn’t agree more.

Sagar School Students: Prize winner Christy Nameirakpam stands in the middle with her prize; standing with her are honourable placement winners: Abhijeet Srivastava, Thoinu Karam, Kirti Dalal, Sagar Suhag, Adweitt Sharma, Pradhumn Sharma, Bipasha Nath, Kanika Marwah.

We also met some of the other Sagar School students who had entered into the competition, and had some fun surprising the enthusiastic bunch with special goody bags.

Keep an eye out on our site for future contests, and next time the lucky winner could be you!

“Education is right there inside each and every one of us, we just have to nurture the good side of it.” - Christy Nameirakpam, Class X, The Sagar School - Alwar, Rajasthan
