When my two sons, Radhika Raman and Gopal Hari, turned five I enrolled them in a private school, hoping for wonderful results. They studied there for the first two years of their schooling. Besides looking after their academic education, I really wanted to train them to be good devotees. I wanted to read them stories from the Krishna book and Srimad Bhagavatam and teach them how to play mrdanga. I thought I would do these things after they came home from school. But very soon I was disappointed because I realized that there was no time. When they came home they were tired and it was difficult to get them into a devotional frame of mind. Also I had to spend so much time undoing what they had already learnt in school.
