The focus was on improving the class-room interaction between the teachers and the taught, Anupama Puri, executive coordinator, said, "The atmosphere a teacher creates in the classroom has a drastic effect on the students' respective capacity. When students know that their teachers care for them and believe in them, the response is much better. Teachers need to understand the impact and influence they have on their students' lives."
