Walking The Path Of Change

“Welcome to our society. You will be judged on what you wear, your opinions, what you look like, what you say, and how you act and there is no escaping it”

Hey you, yes you! The one behind the screen reading this. Let me ask you a question real quick: Who is the father of Science? Most of us would say Galileo Galilei. But what if I asked you this Instead: Who is the
mother of science? For all of those people who just googled that up, I’m pretty sure that your first search result would have been a link to a wikipedia page “List of people considered father or mother of a scientific field”.

How many women can you actually see there? I’ll wait for you to count, to make it easier for now, let me tell you that in a list of well above 80 people, I found only 6 women. Yes, only 6 women! Marie Curie, Ada Lovelace and Emmy Noether to name a few. Holding on to that thought for a second there. Why exactly do you think that was? Was it because women are not capable of anything outside the kitchens? Is it ecause the men are just somehow smarter? Is it because women are not skilled enough to use their brains? Or is it because women can’t achieve great things? They can’t accomplish their dreams?
NO, Not even one of these pathetic excuses engraved into all our brains for centuries are “reasons”.

Women have always been looked down upon, since the beginning of the existence of our species. For some illogical, unfathomable and unexplainable reason women have always been treated unfairly.
Generation after generation, women are still fighting to this day to live in a world which treats them as equal individuals.

What exactly is the difference between a man and a woman?

Image 000

Scientifically speaking a female will have XX – chromosomes while the male on the other hand have XY- chromosomes. This small change in your chromosome defines your gender. Coming to actually think about this, what does this small change in your chromosomes do? Yes they have different body features, their voices sound different. Factually that’s all there is, we look different and have different body functions and features. In no way shape or form does the added Y chromosome increase the size of your brain or what you are capable of, It does not define who you are and what you can be. End of the day we
all are just a whole load of walking moving cells.

It’s quite sadistic actually. The woman who brought you to life and one of the sole reasons for your existence isn’t even treated fairly. The amount of time and effort she spends on you at the end of the day, she isn’t even considered equal. Emma Watson, most of yall would know her as Hermione Granger from Harry Potter, She said “It is time that we all see gender as a spectrum instead of two sets of opposing ideals”. This is so true. I think it’s long due that gender equality should have been a living reality by now.

Image 001 1024x691

Gender equality is a human right, not a women’s fight. Our society has to understand that the term gender equality has so much more depth to it than generally perceived. When I say gender equality it means every single man, women, and gender diverse people.
Some of the values and customs our society possesses are sometimes even more fatal and venomous than poison itself. (So basically you have more chance of surviving a snake bite, than living life fulfilling all of society’s expectations.)

Image 002

Men are subjected to toxic masculinity every single day. Men don’t cry, Stop acting like a girl, pink is for girls! Not a single thing is true, Men can cry if they want to, there are also social beings with emotions, you cannot stop their feelings. Also what do you mean stop acting like a girl, how exactly do girls act? Is it any different from guys?

Image 003
Every single girl in the world is associated with makeup, shopping, high heels, taking pictures, gossiping and dressing up. There is so much more to a woman’s life. Some of them don’t even like all that, we would much rather be playing sports, gaming, reading and so much more We are living in a world where even colours are assigned, blue and black is for boys and pink and purple is for girls. Every single product
from the feminine aisle at your supermarket is pink and every single product made for males is either balck or blue.

Now to the entire world pink is a colour and men can like. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that. It does not define your “masculinity”, it’s your choice of opinion and thought process. So if you hear anyone say such stuff to you, stand up for yourselves because if you don’t do it no one will.

Image 004

And as if life wasn’t hard enough already, we also feel pressured to live up to certain beauty standards. The “Ideal” standards for men are all six packs, triceps, biceps, abs, basically a whole lot of muscle. And for
women extremely hour-glass figures, without a single bit of fat. Having fat is basically a crime. Social media is one of the main causes as to why most people aren’t comfortable with how they look . The Influencers that we all look up to, trying a billion different diets to lose weight and gain muscle. Everyone is so insecure in their own bodies. Kids get bullied in school because they don’t fit your average beauty standard. Well if it helps, i’ll let you in on one of the biggest secrets in the beauty industries. The models, beauty guru, influencers that we all look up to, don’t even feel confident in their own skin which either leads them to go under the knife to have surgical processes or heavily photoshop their photos. So many of our celebs have opened up that these toxic beauty standards have led even them to feel insecure– sometimes even leading to depression and anxiety.

The number of eating disorders people are developing due to these “fitness” and “beauty” standards. 1 in 5 people are not confident in their own bodies. I want every single one of you to know that you are beautiful however you look, the number on the scale does not define anything at all.

The next lingering problem is Education-
Malala Yousafzai was shot by the Taliban in October 2012 just because she wanted to be educated. It took for a young girl to be shot for the world to look up and pay some attention to the lingering problem of educating young girls. In India, the adult literacy rate is 69.3% and that among males is 78.8% and females 59.3%. In India, innocent and poor children are victims of child labor and forced labor. Women are not encouraged to get educated as most of our societies see a woman’s future as nothing else but getting married and caring for her family. We will never progress until women are educated. Even today less than 34% of our lawmakers are women. A woman has every right to get educated. Women cannot all succeed when half of them are held back. We need to ensure education and equality for women so that they can flourish. “Education is the most powerful weapon that you can use to change the world!”

Image 006

The lack of education also leads to unemployment and unequal opportunity. Really what did you expect at this point you shouldn’t even be shocked. Taking our country India for an example, The first and most prevalent problem is the large population. Indians make a world record with 49 babies born per minute, it’s really not the best thing. The population keeps growing but the amount of land we have does not increase, nor do the number of job opportunities. What exactly do you expect them to do? They have to be properly educated in order to make a living for themselves. You simply cannot live off what is passed down to you generation after generation. Firstly the women in india arent even getting educated, they are provided with no resources or opportunities. How do you expect the country to flourish if half of its population are women who are discouraged from going to work. I’m so glad to say that people nowadays are actually using the grey matter inside their heads and providing proper education for their kids and encouraging our leading women to work.

Image 007 1024x683

Another lingering problem is Racism. Like hello world, people, humans, aliens, homo sapiens we are in the 21st century and racism is still a problem? Are you really just differentiating people on the basis of how much melanin they have in their skin. At this point i’ve lost all faith in humanity (P.s to all the einsteins’ here melanin is the pigment which defines your skin colour) The more melanin you have the darker your skin is and vice versa for the less melanin you have. Like which brain dead person suddenly got up in the middle of the night and just decided that the lighter your skin the better you are. You know what, don’t tell me that, because that person’s future is not looking too bright (we’re just going to ignore the fact that they’re probably dead by now). It’s not just the Africans, Asians, Indians, basically anyone who isn’t really pale is discriminated against for the colour of their skin. We can see this all throughout history, and its high time we stop discriminating people on basis of colour. Because it is the most pointless thing ever.

Image 008

Talking about standing up for yourself, how many of the girls reading this can confidently say that they can walk out on our roads at 3 am in the morning? Less than 5%? We are spending a fortune learning self defence but why? First off, just the thought of walking on the roads at 3 am itself raises some eyebrows. Because if you are anything like me you would be knocked out of your senses, you wouldn’t even get up if there was a thunderstorm. But the thought of walking down a street in the middle of the night alone sends shivers down our spines. The day when both men and women can freely and safely walk around the roads at three am in the morning, that is the day when we can proudly say that our country is truly independent . But like kids please be sleeping, I wouldn’t want all your parents questioning me as to why everyone is awake at three in the morning.

Image 009

And last but not least Mental health (I am very aware of how cliche that sounded please ignore it) Mental health is not given the amount of importance it needs. Mental health can affect daily living, relationships, and physical health. The way people think, feel and behave is always turned a blind eye upon. Anxiety disorders, panic disorder, phobias, depression, bipolar disorder, eating disorders, personality disorders and PTSD are all real things. Which can affect a person in so many ways. Your emotional health is interconnected with your physical health. In India people just go and visit temples and shrines when anything comes up. You need to consult a medically trained professional for this, It could very well be a matter of life or death for some of us. And bullying people just because they suffer from a disorder is literally the most inhumane thing one can do. It’s not cool!

To all my fellow students and teens (the gen – Z, as we would put it). Be the change you want to see in the world.
Cause if you don’t stand up for yourself, no one ever will….

Chrysalis School is a hidden gem that is absolutely amazing. The experience started when we were driving through in search of school for our kids and saw this attractive newly built school.

Our interaction with school alumni assured us that our child will be in the best hands with the teachers and staff. The faculty and staff truly care about the students and are available around the clock to help with student needs.

Yaduveer Singh & Tanu Chaudhary

I started my journey at Chrysalis High in the third grade, and have been studying in the same till now and from all these years, I can say that Chrysalis High has the best staff and curriculum.

PUPA (Prior Understanding of Pupil Attributes) is a unique method used in Chrysalis High to understand a student’s learning ability, skills and emotions. They gain this knowledge from the parents and us in an effort to understand us better. The extracurricular activities, inter-school competitions, sports and cultural days organised help incorporate fun and games along with academics.

The student council and the elections for its positions familiarise a student with a sense of responsibility and teamwork. Studying at Chrysalis High has helped me grow to my full potential and has indeed trained me for the exam called life.

I would like to thank all the teachers and staff at Chrysalis High for making my learning experience the best.


Ms. Indrani Singh

Chief Vision Officer, Principal, Chrysalis High Marq & Head - Chrysalis Kids

Ms. Indrani Singh possesses a MSc and B.Ed degree to her credit. She has over 10 years of experience in the field of education and has climbed the rungs of leadership with her sheer dedication, hard work and love for her profession. She joined as the Head of Chrysalis Kids in 2013, which is a pre primary school of Chrysalis. Her out of box thinking and her ideology of doing the right thing for the children have helped her to pioneer new processes to make learning an enriching experience for the children. Across a period of seven years, Ms. Indrani Singh has become a flag bearer of Chrysalis vision, especially the PUPA (Prior Understanding of Pupil Attributes) Program. Indrani brought in the idea of Pre-CHAMPS to all Chrysalis schools. Known for her ideation & focus on quality, Indrani leaves no stone unturned to ensure children have a wonderful learning experience at Chrysalis. In 2017, she was made Associate Academic Director – Pre Primary & again promoted to Academic Director – Pre Primary, a role she handles along with the responsibilities of Chrysalis High, Marq. Under her supervision and guidance, many initiatives like Pre-CHAMPS, AwSTEM, Festival of learning were initiated and appreciated by all. Today she handles multitude of responsibilities from heading two schools to overseeing the Pre-Primary Curriculum Team of Chrysalis as the Academic Director. In addition to these profiles, she was recently promoted as Chief Vision Officer to propel PUPA, an initiative of Chrysalis, to greater heights. To this day, her ideas and her sheer determination to always try something different and new makes her a formidable and integral part of Chrysalis. With an unending pandemic looming over us, the future for education looked uncertain. But Ms. Indrani with her belief that learning should not stop for the children, ideated on the perfect balance of online and live class model to suit the learning styles of the children. The plan started with what best would suit the children and also help the working parents who were facing their own challenges and obstacles. The online model started with curriculum videos which the Chrysalis teachers recorded with the right guidance and methodology which was well defined by her. The live classes began with once a week class to slowly introduce the children to digital learning. With children adapting to live class, the sessions increased to add more to their knowledge. Teachers were sensitized about the challenges of live class and how to ensure that they do the right thing for the children and be an integral part in their learning given the circumstances. Providing the right support to parents and the challenges they faced, were also key elements of the whole digital teaching process. Providing individual support to the children was one way to ensure we partnered with parents to provide the right support to the children and ensure that the learning did not stop.


We provide a fleet of well-maintained buses with trained drivers and lady attendants. Special care is taken while appointing the drivers, to ensure that only the experienced and qualified drivers are appointed after undergoing a driving test. The buses are equipped with safety equipment and a first-aid kit in case of an emergency.

Being GPS enabled, the school can locate the position of a bus at any time during commute and in case of a breakdown, can send a replacement bus instantly. To avoid rash driving and speeding, speed governors are installed in all the buses.

Salient Features


The School serves balanced and nutritious vegetarian snacks and lunch to students who have opted for the facility.

To supervise students during lunchtime, a teacher is appointed for monitoring each table. Children are trained to keep themselves clean and display correct dining manners.

Reverse Osmosis systems for purifying drinking water are available across the campus throughout the day.

Student Safety and School Security

Safety Always a step ahead!

Chrysalis is inarguably the only school where at no point of time, any child is left without supervision of a female teacher!

Precautionary measures

Working at Chrysalis High has been a wholesome experience for me. What stands out for me is the support I receive from the school management in standing by my vision and passion as a teacher.

It would not be an exaggeration in the slightest, if I said that I feel always supported by the principal, coordinator and staff in performing my duties to the best of my abilities. This makes me confident that I would be given room to grow as an educator. It feels great to be part of a group that takes meaningful steps towards turning our philosophy and values into action!

The values we would love to instill in our students at Chrysalis High are strongly rooted in our hearts by our compassionate and efficient school heads and mentors and model them to our students.

The induction programme has been nothing short of immense learning and much-needed guidance to face all our challenges head-on and it has helped prepare ourselves for the year ahead.

At Chrysalis High, I find myself doing what I love to do, staying true to what I strongly believe in and above all I can see myself as a passionate learner with new opportunities to learn each and every day. To top it all, the love and support my students shower on me is an additional perk without which I cannot be the happy teacher that I am today.

Chrysalis High team integrates compassion into their teaching standards, emphasizes the importance of values and builds leaders through each of their classes and lessons. It allows for a lower student to teacher ratio. Online teaching during difficult times of Covid – 19 was indeed a huge challenge for all schools but the support provided by the school to transcend the challenge of teaching students by providing apt and timely training to teachers in online teaching methodology is commendable. This has been very useful to students as well as their parents. The teachers had worked hard in coming up with innovative methods of teaching to keep the students up breast with subjects with their enthusiasm intact.  It’s been a wonderful journey for me at Chrysalis High so far.  The entire team works in unison with one thought in mind – the betterment of the children.

My sincere thanks to Principal ma’am, Coordinators and last but not least my colleagues for the constant support and love.

Upasana Banerjee –
Primary Teacher

I am very happy studying at Chrysalis High Bannerghatta Road. I got admission during the lockdown period. The online classes were well organized and very interactive.

I gained a lot of knowledge during online classes, and the teachers understood us quickly and were there for us at all times. Even though we didn’t meet personally, the atmosphere at Chrysalis was always very warm and supportive. Even though online classes were new to everyone, our teachers were able to identify where we were lagging, and they provided Individual Support Classes (ISP).

The teachers are very interactive, friendly with us, and support us to come up with our own ideas. Practical explanation of the subject through STEaM is also one of the most exciting sessions in our school. The teachers also covered extracurricular activities and enrichment activities during the online classes. The warm welcome by the teachers to the offline classes made us more excited to attend school and a day at Chrysalis High with my friends and teachers is something that I eagerly look forward to every day.

Chrysalis High, is a great school which develops a good foundation for kids both academically and also in character building. Both the pre primary and now the primary school years for Samay, have been socially nurturing and academically challenging. Our son loves his school, he has come a long way from his nursery days till today, the 3rd grade.

Everyone at school, be it the Principal, Coordinators, teachers or the administrative staff, all have been really cooperative and supportive. Chrysalis also has one of the best parent – teacher relationship!

Overall, Chrysalis High, has been a wonderful experience for both Samay and us till date. We appreciate the great work and looking forward for more!


I have been in Chrysalis High BG Road since 2018. The teachers have laid a strong foundation, helped me improve on my basics in all subjects and played a major role in me evolving into the best version of myself. My school has given me many opportunities to develop my leadership skills and I will always feel grateful about that. I have made many friends in the last couple of years, thanks to the warm atmosphere at Chrysalis High. During online classes our school left no stone unturned and even though our classes were online, they ensured we learnt with the same enthusiasm.

My Voyage at Chrysalis High Marq has been spectacular and overwhelming. The school has positive vibes that makes it a beautiful shelter for not only students but also for the teachers. Here at Chrysalis we are motivated to nurture the young minds in the best possible way.

I learnt number of years of work experience is not that counts, what is more important is the quality one possesses through their learning experience. I thoroughly enjoy teaching and unfaltering curiosity.

Chrysalis High is an impressive organization that makes educators feel supported and equipped. I ’am proud to be a part of this institution that strive to take eloquent steps to transform our care philosophy and values into effective action.

I feel privileged to be an integral part of such a proficient and progressive workforce. Chrysalis oozes integrity and excellence that is t=refreshing and essential in our daily duties.

Chrysalis exemplifies what it means to be an organization that is “To help our children excel by understanding them, guiding them on the right path and strengthening their self belief.”

I enjoy working at Chrysalis High because this is a place where high energy meets absolute dedication.As a teacher, each day is a new day for me and I fully value the myriad opportunities that enhance my experience.

I also appreciate the unique working atmosphere and  the collaborative culture  that allows me to grow not only as a professional, but also as a person.

The school provides me with a lot of scope to interact with children and their parents, and this gives me an opportunity  to gain deeper insights into ways to help each of them achieve their academic goals.

The school’s vision for children is a guiding principle for all of us. It is indeed a pleasure to work with my immediate superiors who are both-understanding and supportive in all aspects. Together, I am certain that we will have a mutually enriching and exciting academic year ahead.

Chrysalis High Marq has paved new roads of possibilities of learning and fruitful experiences for both teachers such as myself and the students.

The things that are most satisfying for me are the never ending opportunities to learn, perform out of the comfort zone and most importantly the endless love that I receive from the children. Life is a continuous learning process and Chrysalis High Marq has made it possible by giving me many opportunities to be creative in the way I work. The whole team works as a family by supporting and helping each other at any given point of time .

The motivation, appreciation, support and positivity received by us is in turn passed on to our students. The school believes in the holistic development of all its children and takes all the necessary measures to nurture the young minds in a fruitful way. I am extremely proud to be a part of the Chrysalis High Marq family.

Educator, Chrysalis High Marq

In the field of Construction, they say- “ A well-designed and strong foundation keeps the building standing while the forces of nature wreak havoc.” The same purpose that a foundation serves for a building, schooling does for our children- ensures they are wholly prepared for the journey called Life!

Having worked for a few schools in the past, I was aware of the paramount role a school plays in the initial nurturing of a child. While joining Chrysalis, I expected a similar school environment as in my past, but to my astonishment, things were incredibly better. While the academics here are indeed exceptional, even better is the focus on the character development of each child. Teachers know their Children really well, beyond just recalling the child’s name; all thanks to initiatives like PUPA. The teachers nurture children in a way that is not just caring and loving but also instills in them qualities like compassion, collaboration, empathy and many more from an early age. Children are also encouraged in a way that they constantly thrive to develop confidence in their own unique abilities.

Well, what we reap is what we sow; and not just the teachers but the whole team in Chrysalis believes in this fact. We work together tirelessly because we know we are nurturing kids to form a responsible and noble generation for the future!

Anjali E
Faculty, Chrysalis High Marq

I have been a student at Chrysalis High Marq for two school years and from what I have experienced, I can tell you it is a great school. The staff is excellent and the rules help keep the school safe and in order.

There is an equal balance of learning and reviewing the information. There are enrichment activity classes as well to where we have life skill and ink well sessions that help in the refinement and polishing of the mind. Chrysalis has initiated many activities for students. We have engrossing and fun-filled Indoor Champs, Performing Arts classes, Buddy interaction time etc. The teachers in Chrysalis are hardworking and determined . I am so proud and lucky to go to Chrysalis!
