It is inspiration cousin.The pic reminds of Kipling's poem IF

If you can keep your head when all about you   
    Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,   
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
    But make allowance for their doubting too;   
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
    Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
    And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:

If you can dream—and not make dreams your master;   
    If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim;   
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
    And treat those two impostors just the same;   
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
    Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
    And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
    And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
    And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
    To serve your turn long after they are gone,   
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
    Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,   
    Or walk with Kings—nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
    If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
    With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,   
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,   
    And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!

So many emotions...

Judging from the chimney in the background and the black smoke that it's gushing, those children will probably be that last ones to enjoy such a beautiful education institution as the village is urbanised and children are put in day prisons disguised as a place of learning.

it's intresting how human minds works. both you and Cali picked two different side of my comment. each depends their experience and level of understanding and periority.

i did the same when i commented on the picture. my way of thinking attracted things i see it as concern. i wasnt even thinking islamicly or culturely but reverse way that i used to see.

Why do you think they teach children sports at a very early age?

The answer is pretty simple; it won't be easy to teach them when they grow up. As they say "you can't teach an old dog new tricks". But perhaps that just me.

If we just stick to the picture in discussion here and without prejudicing it with any preconceptions and ideological believe, I think the word seperation doesn't apply here. In that picture I see a group of children all sitting together on the same spread out carpet and thier eagerness to learn.

On side note the idea of girls sitting next to other girls and boys next to other boys is just a case of "Shinbirba shinbirkii ayuu la duulaa"
