On March 28, 2015 we celebrated the completion of 25 years of our journey in our characteristically low key manner with just the members of our staff, members of our governing body and donors and ell wishers who have been with us for a decade or more. This was also the year when many young people joined our staff and this celebration had a significance for them too as the mirror-window metaphor that was used by everyone to look ahead while recollecting the past, helped them to put things in perspective. The world of 1989 was significantly different from the one in 2015, and it is inevitable for an organisation to get shaped by the landscape through which it moves. Our country is changing fast and yet some of the basic problems remain the same, for which we have to continue with our work to ensure that equity of learning and quality with equity is realised for all children in our country. At the same time we have to prepare ourselves to face new challenges that are likely to emerge with changing circumstances.
