It began with a little spark "let's make a movie".
Few came together and a made script. The script was highly influenced by their love of NERF guns and the books they read and video games they play.
Well, then came the decision to choose actors - audition happened, voting for the best actor happened. It was set to shoot for the next day.
Few actors signed off by saying "waste of time".

Musical Concert at Aarohi
Each one presented a small piece of music of one minute. Some practiced for 10 minutes, some knew it already.
When the show began none wanted to start - "I am remembering the rhythm, I will do it next, Not now, After some time....".
2-3 of us played the music and once the stage was set, many came forward.

Jatre with Mr. Narasim, a session of stories, not made up stories, but real life stories. It was blessing to spend time with Mr. Narasim Katary, a young at heart 77yr old. He is a retired state judge of Canada elected by people for three consecutive terms (each term is 5years) with amazing narrative skills and language. His forefathers hail from the Grand Vijayanagar empire.

Who are our teachers? How do we learn without someone teaching us? How can we learn all by ourselves? These are some of the frequently asked questions to us. Well, we have no teachers, but the entire world is our teachers. Whenever we need to learn from someone, we seek people in that field and we have never been short of any teachers.
An organization working with democratic schools wants our children to design a logo for their conference (IDEC) IDEC2017 happened in Israel - http://idec2017.org

The campus of Aarohi was designed with constraints - material, design, people, resources, budget and many other. The aim is to create an experience rather recreating what a child would anyway experience.
Here are some pictures from a child’s point of view who found fascinating usages of different material in different forms.

Surfing - it brought both excitement as well as fear (will I be able to do it)
You see we aren't used to dancing on the waves.
I too was not sure for me surfing at the age of 49.
But once we reached Mulki, cleaned the beach, did out drill on the beach - all wehad to do was to hit the waves and surf along - we rode, we fell, we had salf water all over and inside us, and we went back for more.
Three days of surfing and we realised how a simple thing (wave) can turn into so much fun as well a sport.
