Editorial Prefect Speech
Words are our most inexhaustible source of magic.
Good Morning! I, Shruti Nivsarkar, am the co-head of the Editorial Team, 2020-21. To begin with, I would like to thank Principal Ma’am and the teachers for considering me worthy of this post and for nominating me for it. It is truly an honor and I hope that I can give justice to this responsibility.
Over the past few years, I have developed a great love for good writing and of its power to tell stories. I, myself, enjoy putting into words, stories of my own or of people and things that I know and love. As a member of the editorial team, I hope to help spread that love and show people the power of words.
In the current scenario of the Covid pandemic, a new form of communication has arisen- the digital platform. Vidya Valley turns 20 today! To celebrate VVS’ 20th year, my team and I would like to explore the digital way and maybe put out a newsletter every month. It will give us a chance to do some digital reporting of the school, by the school, and for the school.
Stories aside, it is important to be able to articulate one’s views and opinions and we will try to make sure that everyone’s voice is heard. Charles de Lint, a Canadian writer has said, “Don’t forget- no one else sees the world the way you do, so no one else can tell the stories that you have to tell.” We will stand by this.
