Imagine Aarohi, a learning community where we learn from anyone...just like that! Photography is an art or science or both? A day (just few hours) with Supratim was enriching to explore photography as a science and an art too!

Enthusiastic Artist, face to face interaction and demonstration. Some hungry kids to learn from the artist, some tired, some mesmerized, some inspired to practice more….that was the outdoor of today.

Some worry about maths, we worry about that basic ability to apply maths.
Some worry about food, we worry about that understanding of food and body.
Some worry about English, we worry about the basic ability to express using various mediums.
Some worry about the level (grade), we worry about the ability to assess

Do you have any conflict with Grand Parents/ Spouse on how to teach your child who is going through open learning/unschooling/homeschooling
Here are some thoughts –
Situation – One child 7yrs old, Grand father wants her to learn Kannada language and believe that this is the age to learn language, absorption is high and this is the time to learn. The child is not showing interest, there is expectation from mother that the child gets RIGHT inputs (education) at the right time (now).

Learning is often associated with teaching. The moment there is a thought of learning, another thought follows is “who will teach me”? But we miss out a HUGE resource force “our own peers (friends)”.
"Planning Mela " brought an opportunity to share details with peers. Each one set up their learning stall to share about their plan for this term - inspiring each other, giving ideas, questioning, adding value by giving suggestions...the session was buzzing with sharing and networking!

Three wonderful days with Shaunak, a chef, an entrepreneur and restaurateur at the campus was full of action and compassion.
Cooking our own pasta, Thai curry and Italian thin crust pizza were just not some dishes - but a lot more interaction on food, each ingredient, each cooking step. Each food was created from scratch, kneading, rolling and boiling our own pasta, making own pizza base, soup broth with vegetable peels ... enough to bring lot of exploration and connection with food in our kitchen.

Manthan, brought an opportunity to come together and explore – empowerment, various elements of Aarohi and share/express concerns, feedback and involvement.
Empower means “I have power in me – to decide, to act, to response, to decide and so on”. In our day to day life we come across these situations – Self Doubt – Will I be able to do? Confusion – How yo do?Apprehensions – WIll it be good?

When we live together, we develop liking for some, dislike for some. Also, some of our actions are accepted, some actions creates difficulty for others.
HelpMates is one forum which offers opportunity for all of us to come together to understand each other.

It takes a village to raise a child is a proverb which means that it takes an entire community of different people interacting with children in order for children to experience and grow in a safe environment. (Ref – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/It_takes_a_village)
Family week at Aarohi is an attempt to get exposure to different practice from different lives, cultures and home environments. Different ages, different culture, different skills… time together, live together and we grow together!
