Serene Strength – The Role of Education and Learning in the Making of a Person of Substance
In a world that is characterized by change, education has somehow managed to elude the grasp of this constant. However, the information revolution has ushered in an era of unprecedented re-design and forced us to question the way we think about education . For thinkers, planners, educationists, parents, guardians and the entire society, it is time to forge a new educational outcome in tune with the times to help our learners to thrive in the future.
This book proposes that education must focus on fostering persons of substance with Serene Strength. The author explores the concept of Serene Strength and person of substance and illustrates their inextricable relationship to education. The book concludes that knowledge is becoming obsolete faster than one can remember and it is imperative to acquire skills, processes and watermarks through an active, life-long learning process that is geared towards actualizing one’s potential.

The main objective of the youth summit is to enhance the ties between the youth of both countries and create an understanding of the importance of building India-Bhutan friendship.

Centre for Escalation of Peace (CEP) and Pallavan Learning Systems (PLS), in collaboration with Royal Institute for Governance and Strategic Studies (RIGSS), organized the inaugural India-Bhutan Youth Summit from September 21 to 29, 2018 in the Kingdom of Bhutan. The launch of the India-Bhutan Youth Summit came at an opportune time to celebrate the 50 years of friendship and partnership.
The nine-day programme is structured in a manner where learning experiences would incorporate a combination of academics and adventure. It includes an introduction to Bhutan and India, a three/four-day trek across the pristine landscapes, interactions amongst the participants on core issues, and meetings between the participants and eminent people. The participants will also visit places of interest and interact with the locals to gain a better understanding of the country and the aspirations of its citizens.
2018 marked the first India Bhutan Youth Summit which was held in Bhutan. In order to select from a long list of entries for the summit, participants were asked to write an essay on what they thought makes a person of substance. This book is a compilation of their essays.
