Dear Readers,

Sparsh has always been one of the fundamental fibers of Manthan: an elaborate platform for our students to express their ideas, individuality, and exceptional work. Keeping this in mind we wholeheartedly present to you the March 2016 issue of Sparsh.

One of the new aspects of this issue is the well – thought out, precise, and compelling writing styles which have emerged to the forefront, more than ever before, with this edition. From hard – hitting editorials, fascinating poems, to thought – provoking essays, a new lease of writing has become the core of our latest offering of Sparsh.

With the last Sparsh issue of the academic year 2015 – 2016, we also bid adieu to our first ever batch of 10th Grade. These cheery yet eager group of learners have been with us since the very establishment of Manthan. We will miss them deeply and wish them bright futures, as they step into new waters.

As Robert Frost put forth so rightly in his words:

“I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.”

                                                                                       -Robert Frost, “The Road Not Taken”

 Let us all embrace the new changes we come across this year. Just as our students have taken the less trodden path with their writing, we encourage our senior students- leaving us- to take the road not travelled, to explore the curiosities of life, and to carve a niche for themselves in our modern and ever-changing world.

On this note, we leave it to you to explore this fresh, rejuvenating, and intriguing version of Sparsh.

Happy Reading!

Chief Editors,
