Vidya Bhawan School – Teacher:  Ms. Pragya Tank

While vacations and testing paused all art-making in our participating Teach for India affiliate schools, our brilliant Vidya Bhawan School teacher, Pragya Tank, remained hard at work protecting the welfare of children. We are honored to show her TED talk, “Schizophrenia through a Child’s Lens.”

.

The name art was a special initiative.  The kids names will be turned into stickers.  The stickers will go on a top-nationally-ranked student’s snowboard.  He’ll take photos and maybe videos.  We’ll post all the media in the Spring 2018 Global Gallery, with a list of represented countries.

Students of Mr. Tejas Mehta, at the Anjali Khalsa English School in India, wrote lyrics for the “Best Things in Life Theme.”  They asked for help from the Big Picture Foundation global kids’ community with turning their lyrics into a song.


  • Sleeping in the corner on the mat of faith,
    Dreaming of the world where I am not afraid,

    Playing on the fields, rushing down the streets,
    The magic of the book, daily I perceive,
  • These are the best things in life…
    I wanna stay here for a while,
    For this is a world to hope and shine,
    for these are the best things in life,
  • Dancing in the rain with my group of mains,
    Making fun of people, passing down the lanes,
    Jumping from the stairs, swinging in the chairs,
    Spending hours calming down a friend,
    Sharing love and likes for the favourite band,
    These are the best things in life,
    I wanna stay here for a while…
  • I am here with you for this moment, just laugh,
    Forget about all wories and glories, just laugh,
    These are the best things in life,
    I wanna stay here for a while…

LYRICS:  “Best Things in Life”

Sleeping in the corner on the mat of faith,
Dreaming of the world where I am not afraid,
Playing on the fields, rushing down the streets,
The magic of the book, daily I perceive,
These are the best things in life…
I wanna stay here for a while,
For this is a world to hope and shine,
for these are the best things in life,
Dancing in the rain with my group of mains,
Making fun of people, passing down the lanes,
Jumping from the stairs, swinging in the chairs,
Spending hours calming down a friend,
Sharing love and likes for the favourite band,
These are the best things in life,
I wanna stay here for a while…
I am here with you for this moment, just laugh,
Forget about all wories and glories, just laugh,
These are the best things in life,
I wanna stay here for a while…
