  • It’s been one week since School re-opened after the Diwali vacation. During the last three days of the vacation, the entire batch of 2010 fellows of TeachForIndia and staff went to Ahmedabad for a retreat where we thought, talked about and reflected upon our work and what lies ahead. As part of the retreat, we spent some time at the very peaceful Sabarmati Ashram (Mahatma Gandhi's abode) on the banks of River Sabarmati.

    At this Ashram, I felt very connected to Gandhiji’s life and I vowed there that upon my return to School, I’ll regularly talk about Gandhiji and the other three champions – Nelson Mandela, Mother Teresa and Martin Luther King – in the class. By now, the kids know these four champions by name but nothing much about their life or what they stood for. Now, they were ready.

    Day one: I told them about the trip to Gandhiji’s ashram and how he told us to be the change one wants to see in this world.

    Day two: We had a discussion on having a big dream in life. At the end of this session, I asked the children to write down their dream on a piece of paper. This is what little Sameer came up with !
