Going by the statement made by Jung, it seems that life challenges us in more ways than one, giving us an opportunity to reflect upon ourselves. Let us consider a case on hand to understand this further. A nine year old child walked into the lives of 15 adults last August (2012) at Azim Premji School, Udhamsinghnagar. The profile of the child at the time of admission was – l Very little sense of schooling, its requirements and demands l Clinically diagnosed as child with low IQ level l Rules, expectations and routines did not mean much to her l Challenged not only academically but also socially and behaviorally l She was not refined in her manners with peers l Impulses ran high l Got aggressive at times l Could not sit in one place l Snatched things away from others l She would lie down wherever and wasn’t fully toilet trained
