Within this sixteen years of my schooling, never was I able to answer why; why am I studying and for what purpose? Is it because it would help me become literate or else is it because it would help me find a job one day? However my one month stay as intern at Samdrup Jongkhar Initiative allowed me to grasp the genuine purpose of attending schools; ‘EDUCATION’. For almost all of us education simply means learning how to read and write and gaining the specified subject knowledge but if given a little bit of extra thought education means going beyond the conventional way of thinking. Education does not mean the qualification that we attain rather it is what we have inside. Therefore SJI is all about the spirit of Bhutanese identity, self-realization, consciousness and communal integration.
