Jatre - Engine

His first presentation.
His attempt to throw himself in front of the audience.
He worked hard to know more about engines.
He worked on himself to come out of his own inhibitions ( I can't, I don't, mistakes means others laugh). 
He worked on making the presentation.
He worked on composing his flow of the session.

Spontanity

We have left the city but the city still live inside us.
Few kids from neighbourhood village came ( all dressed up) to the campus. During the learning Mela on Friday in their school, we casually invited them. And they came today! We didn't expect them to come or we didn't mean a Sunday visit. This was a surprise visit for me. I was not prepared for this.

But the kids at the campus and a volunteer showed interest in playing with them.

And quickly they all got into playing, reading and making!

Peer learning

Why only adults are considered ‘teachers’ or rather when we think about teaching we think about adults. We miss out on a HUGE learning resource and that is children themselves. Informally they learn many things from each other including how to operate mobile to repair cycles. But when it comes to learning division or Newton's law, probably even the children do not consider themselves a valuable learning resource.
