About Us

Do you remember the doodling you did on your school desks and notebooks? It was an expression of your beautiful imagination and the knowledge. I feel education should provide that space and that blank canvas to each and every child to express in whatever form he/she might feel happy to choose. Be it art, music, talking, creating or writing. This podcast is my step forward in trying to Transform Education by brainstorming ideas and thoughts that can help in redesigning and redefining the present day education system.

Desk Doodles Episode 13 - In conversation with Mehul, Nikita, Shubhankar and Aditi

What does Education mean to Students? In conversation with four young, confident, creative and uniquely talented students, who are the recipients of the education that needs rethinking and transforming. But how can we redesign or transform the education system without asking the recipients of that education. We need answers to questions like.. What worked for them?What didn't? What do they think will work? I think its time we gave students a voice when it comes to designing an education system rather than just keeping them at the receiving end of it .

Desk Doodles Ep.12- In conversation with Dr. Vasudha Prakash and Mrs. Nayana Kharosekar

Is it a Learning Disorder or is it Learning Differently...what is that fine line which separates the two? We have different eye colour, hair colour and above all the way our brains function. It is unique to each one ...just like our fingerprint. This uniqueness manifests itself in our personality, our tastes our strengths and weaknesses . Sometimes those weaknesses start to manifest more than the strengths and then its termed as a disorder. Learning disorder is a general term for a neurological disorder that affects the way in which a child’s brain can receive, process, retain, and respond to information. A child with a learning disorder may have trouble learning and using certain skills, including reading, writing, listening, speaking, reasoning, and doing math,but any form of disorder is just one part of the child's entire being .The focus needs to be on the child's strengths and enumerable talents and skills that he/she possesses to create a holistic and happy life for the child.
