E-Learning or Machine Learning at Borni
Sports Meet 2015
We value sports at Borni School as this bring us together. We play not to wind, but to share skills and learn from each other.
Speech from the School Director (Mr. Joseph Nshimbani)
Sports is not just competition, the idea of sports is not fun alone. This is the a spirit that you are developing, sports is the spirit of team, leadership and decision making. And through sports you really appreciate each other. If your friend has own or lost, both these feelings are to come to you and share with your friends. I consider sports as a time you get to know and help each other.
A sport is the time we build a winning team, like Red House have done this year. In the years to come, we want sports to become a spiritual growth of our school. When we say a part of spiritual growth, is not all about how you win, but how you loss. Support a friend who have lost and encourage him to win next time. We thank all the teachers who had taken part.
ABOUT OUR VILLAGE
Pangantabi village is located in the Thoubol district, about 80 kms from Imphal city. Approximately 6,000 people live in the village, and most are farmers. Family income depends on the annual harvest. Few of them run small business, but most women do craft work and men work in the farm. The farmers on average live on less than US $1 a day.
Imphal is located in the extreme east of India, bordering Myanmar. It is a quiet, crowded but uneventful city. We had to register ourselves at the airport – all foreigners need to get special registration at the airport. There was a good reason for this. In October 2008, Imphal was struck by a large terror attack carried out by Manipuri insurgents fighting for to regain sovereignty from India. This city has a history of ethnic rivalries.
It is also the home of the Meitei tribe and is a largely Hindu region, but with a very specific culture of its own. It is nestled deep within a lush green corner of North East India. It is indeed an Indian state of exquisite natural beauty and splendors. It is no wonder why the former Prime Minister of India, late Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru paid a fitting tribute by describing it as “Jewel of India”.
