Have you ever seen electronics? When one talks about pottery, one can see the clay and pot. When one talks about carpentry one can see the tools and joints.

She is 14yrs old, she has just finished a filmmaking course, she wanted to share her learnings with us at Aarohi. She prepared a presentation on filmmaking and she took a session with us. She also worked on making a film with some of us. It was great having her at Aarohi. We had a wonderful session with her on filmmaking. As she shared "Filmmaking is just not picking camera and shooting...it's an art. It requires a lot of detailing, preparation and understanding". She inspired us with her story, her passion.

It was just simply “Friday special”.
Some like to play matches
Some like to win
Some likes to make teams
All needs fell into place with one Friday special - early morning matches, then another match then another match and that’s all.

Our kids want to become something - a cricketer, a football player, a pilot, a trainer….ever wondered why do they choose what they choose?
We had three days intensive Jatre with some of them on “Intentions” of choosing what they choose.
It began with visioning with what one wants to become - We wrote our life stories - I am...I want
Visioning Process - Think in the present tense, think as if it's happening now in your life...Imagine you travel in time machine and see yourself in future - How do you look - What kind of home y

She believes in God, She believes in fasting, She believes in herself! She announced the celebration of Maha Shiv Ratri...it was not a community event but it was in the community!
When one can announce "I am making a film", then why one can't announce "I am celebrating". We live in the community, we also live as an individual within the community with our individual needs. She didn't need all to join, she alone was enough to start the journey.
