Learning Utsav - Celebrating Learning

A day at Aarohi to celebrate diversity in learning!

The beauty of the event is the openness of the format, it allows one to participate in sessions of ones interest. It allows all ages to be equal, because everyone can teach and everyone can learn. It gives space for everyone from all ages, gender or background. 

Perseverance

Imagine when you get up in the morning you see a map on our mirror - a map of habits of mind. You randomly choose one of those, say perseverance.

Now whatever happens during the day, in your life you focus on perseverance.

  • You voice your thoughts aloud, "I wish I was more perseverant with the bargaining at the shop"

  • You invite thoughts via questions, "What would happen if Chota Bheem was not so perseverant in fighting with the dragon?"
