Safety training is part of living at Aarohi. We need to be equipped to handle some emergencies and fire safety is in our list of safety training.
One of the advantage of these training is to understand our own paic - the one of the most important aspect in any emergency “do not panic”. But one to not panic, one needs to understand that emergency and be equip to handle it to face it.

When my daughter, Asawari was 10yrs old, she showed potential in art and dance. I was in a hurry to reach somewhere, to achieve, to concur that talent…we put her in art and dance classes. She learnt but she didn’t explore. I didn’t understand then.
She was fortunate to have dream teachers in art as well as dance. Although she was excelling in both the skills, she was not growing. I knew it was hollow for me as for her. I knew it was senseless growth for her.
