Jamuna Mishra Academy JMA Pilani Rajasthan Celebrates Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore Jayanti
JMA Principal Mrs Booma Natarajan and her team of teachers take inspiration from the famous quote “Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.”

Located in the heart of Shekhawati region of Rajasthan, Pilani is well known for various educational institutions, CSIR Laboratory CEERI as well as the upcoming BrahMos Missile Assembly Project unit. A noteworthy fact is that the girl student enrollment has been steadily rising every year in JMA and is presently close to 50% of total strength which itself is a matter of pride in a state which had alarmingly low record of girl’s education.
JMA which is well known for conducting regularly the annual medical checkups for all children with the help of leading medical practitioners of Pilani, has a rich tradition of celebrating various events of not only national importance like Republic Day, Independence Day, Mahatma Gandhi Jayanti, National Science Day, National Education Day, Children’s Day etc but also of international importance such as World Health Day, International Women’s Day, World water Day, World Sparrow day, World Sight Day, Grand Parents Day, Earth Day etc.
Continuing the same spirit, JMA celebrated Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore’s 150th birth anniversary on 07 May 2011 at the School premises. The art teacher of the school Mrs Preethi Gupta had done a portrait of Tagore especially for the occasion. Addressing the teachers and students of the school, Principal Mrs Booma Natarajan gave a brief biography of the Nobel Laureate Tagore (07 May 1861 – 07 August 1941) who is a Poet, Novelist, Musician, Painter and Playwright all rolled in one. The children were thrilled to know that the national anthem of Bangladesh “Amar Sonar Bangla” was also written by Tagore. No one has doubt that even though Tagore wrote in Bengali, all his works had universal appeal.
Principal reciting stanzas from Gitanjali “Where the Mind is without Fear” and the awesomely inspiring “Ekla Chalo Re” urged the children to learn more about Tagore in addition to the English Poet – Playwright William Shakespeare. The celebrations ended with the singing of “Jana Gana Mana” the national anthem of India penned by none other than Tagore.
For JMA, the mission with passion indeed is delivery of quality education speaking the brand image of the school instead of flooding the marketplace with colorful brochures and pamphlets.
