Archiving for 2026
August 22, 2016
It is a joy reading these letters to me by the children of grades 8 and 9 at IWS Gurgaon. Do read and enjoy. We will read again after 10 years when they are 23 or 24 🙂
Name: Abhishek Boken
You are great, I am Abhishek
I think you made a very cool school
Iâ€™ll tell you something about the school
A place of peace, a place of respect
We do yoga and meditation
A piece of popcorn, escaped from the pan
Flew in the kitchen, like superman
Just like the students of
Indus world school
A place where you help in any case
If sad, make them happy
If you canâ€™t see it, take a look in our class
The teachers are great, teaching us how to
Study in many ways
Made many drawings and paintings in many ways,
Sir shared his thoughts in a way through drawings.
I will not play a tug of war
I had rather play hug of war
Every one shouts, Instead of some
Everyone wins, every one cuddles,
And every one grins
If someone has a dream to fulfill
They go for it achieving it

Dear Sir, I am Karan
To me, Indus means a place where I learn along with my teachers and friends and we have fun. Every day I come here to learn something good so that it helps in my future. Indus is a group of people who all work together.
I learn many good things at Indus. It is a place where we meet our friends every day .So, at last I would like to only say, Indus is a place where we learn many good things for our bright future.

Dear Satya sir,
Hello sir, I am Rajeev Boken. I have been in Indus for one and a half years and it has been a great experience. For me, Indus is a very good school. Better than the schools to which I had been before.
Indus is a very friendly school. The children are never beaten by teachers here. It is also not a very strict school. For me, school is where I come to study and learn many new things. Indus has these qualities. I like the way the teachers teach us. And I have nothing to say what you can change in this school. Thank you for building this school. It`s a great experience with you all in Indus till now.

Hello Satya sir,
Hope you are enjoying your time with the students of Indus. We were told to write a letter to sharing â€œWhat does Indus mean to me and what more can you add to it?â€
For me, Indus is the first place where I have seen no discrimination. I see equality between teachers and students. Here in Indus, children are made to get ready for the future.
Every time you meet us and say â€œHello, young man or hello young womanâ€, it gives the feeling of being an adult and being responsible. Indus has helped me strengthen all my weaknesses and work on it.
Indus is doing everything to make us happy. Sir, to make us happier I request you to make extra-curricular activities a part of curricular activities. Children must even give a test and there must be sports matches throughout the year. Please also make a school musical band. If you can do it, it would be very helpful.

It has been 2 years since I joined Indus. Indus has many qualities which I wanted in a school and they are now fulfilled. I learnt many new types of sports at Indus which I didnâ€™t even know existed such as handball, base kickball etc. Teachers at Indus are also very friendly and you can speak with them, clear your doubts and in return improves your learning. Sessions like I.K.T., Q.C.T. are also a very good way to get to know ourselves, our peers and our teachers.
You can also share with the teachers what you did not like about their actions and behavior. The annual functions and all the celebrations are uniquely done. Giving names such as Industsav, Indus Olympics, BAL Mela, Language week gives another twist to the celebration and adds excitement.
Some things I didnâ€™t like are- our grade is the senior most and hence I know that it comes with some responsibilities. At times teachers scold us for what we arenâ€™t responsible for. That just keeps on adding bad feelings for the school. All the things are great and if we arenâ€™t scolded that means we havenâ€™t done any mistake. Just because we are the oldest doesnâ€™t mean itâ€™s our mistake. If this problem is solved then our school is great!

Indus! A place full of love
Where you can share your feelings
Importance is given to everyone
The strengths and weaknesses shared equally
Indus! A place where we come to learn
To decide our future, prepare ourselves
We share the same thoughts and feelings
Of being together and learning too
Indus! A place where I love to come
To meet my friends and learn
The teachers here are so kind
You would always appreciate them any time
Indus! A place for learning a lot
Not only studies but even about life
We learn whatâ€™s right and wrong
We learn now to enjoy while learning!
Indus is a beautiful school
Any child would love to join!

Dear Satya Sir,
Today, you must be wondering why Anushka is writing to me? Is there a complaint about Uma maâ€™am or a request on behalf of Anandita, No, itâ€™s neither complaint nor a request. It is just a sharing about Indus.
Indus has been my home since 6th April, 2015. I have learnt, played and enjoyed at Indus. This school has been my dream school, where the teachers find new ways to educate the students. Concepts such as birthday celebration, I.K.T., Q.C.T. â€“these are a great way to understand ourselves, our peers and our teachers. Indus as a school celebrates each child and also celebrates the new ways of teaching.
Since 14th August, CL and Indus are celebrating their 20th birthday. I wanted to share with you how much I enjoy here. Being the senior most, I have some responsibilities. Today, I want to make a promise to you, sir. Being the senior most doesnâ€™t mean that I can misuse the power given to me and I will try not to pin point othersâ€™ mistake without seeing mine.
Now, Iâ€™m keeping my pen down. I am hoping to hear from you soon. I feel nice after writing down my feelings for Indus. Thank you for building Indus as fun place to learn.

Dear Satya Sir,
To me, Indus means a place where I am free to learn and share my learningâ€™s with my friends. This place not only teaches me what freedom is but also prepares me for my future. I am very lucky to be at Indus because Indus gives the child opportunities in life and here we can freely discuss what we want to be in life in our lives. This happens in very few schools. The festivals that we celebrate in school also brings along a lot of responsibilities to our class. We always take those responsibilities because we know that these are going to lead us to a better life.
My only request is to have better space management in events where the whole school has to come together. It becomes very stuffy for so many children to sit in a single room. Thank you

Dear Satya sir,
Itâ€™s been a long time since I have written to you. Iâ€™m glad that I have got this opportunity to write to you and share about our school.
To me, Indus means a place where children can actually decide which way to go in future. We come to school, enjoy with our friends and also study. I just love the way the teachers play their roles. They play with children, separately tell the child and explain wherever she/he is stuck in and also they love the way the children are.
Even if I tried hard I wouldnâ€™t find excuses to miss the school.. It is a place full of joy and knowledge. The way it is, it should stay forever!!
