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.

What is life education? What is open learning? Is it all about “what I want to learn, how want to learn and when I learn”? Is it so simple!

Our first crop - we got the sack of hay in bonus along with the Ragi. After cutting it the hay sack was very inviting to jump and play and just connect with. We have never touched a sack of hay or jumped into them. It was softer, it was bouncy, it was pure fun playing wrestling and flipping from the tree into that sack of hay!

Ever since we started the journey of open learning, few questions are often asked, one of them is "If kids are allowed to learn on their own then they may miss learning everything?"

Carpentry with Murali...He creates wonder with coconut shells. He came to the campus to share his skills, joy and connection with coconut shells. He patiently guided each child who wanted to create with coconut shells. He shared the usages of various carpentry tools with passion and enthusiasm.
He says "it's not important what you do, but how you do is more important. Today it is carpentry, tomorrow it may be harvesting. Pluck that bean with mindfulness, not because the plant will feel nice, but because you will connect with yourself".

14 adults from Russia to understand learning/ unlearning, visited Aarohi. They stayed for a week to experience Aarohi. They were on their learning journey to India. Each one brought a different energy - While we continued with our life at the campus, they became part of us. Some joined us, some held themselves while some shared their learning with us. Some took sessions with us, while some joined in our sessions.
