Teachers are the foundation of a good nation, and we at DSKIC believe in it strongly. Every year DSKIC hosts Principals meet, where we invite Principals of leading schools in India to understand and have a dialogue on the importance of creative careers of 21st Century.
The same day in the presence of legendary cartoonist Padma Vibhushan Shree R K Laxman, we launched our ‘Coffee Table Book’, a DSKIC initiative to honor the creative minds of the world.
To explain further the concept of misfits, we would like to quote Steve Jobs, a perfect misfit himself, an example of fighting the odds and creating successful company solely driven by passion and creativity.
“Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes, the ones who see things differently they’re not fond of rules. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things, they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.” – Steve Jobs
As the heads of the schools you may have encountered these ‘misfits’ at your school, a child who likes to draw in history books or the one who always makes paper planes. These are the children who may not want to grow up to become doctors or engineers, but they may say ‘I want to travel the world / or I would like to make a flying car’ etc. These imaginations need not be dismissed as mere imaginations any longer, because these have now shaped into 21st century mainstream careers.
