Community Immersion : Extended Family!

When she mentioned that I shouldn’t leave her house because she feels lonely without me, I felt my purpose was served. 

She is Kunti Ma’am, an Aanganwadi Teacher in Vadyuda village of Bageshwar District. I’m living in her shelter from the past 10 days for a community immersion project and 10 more days to go. She has taken care of me like my mother but also been a supportive and funny friend. 

She is again an inspiration to me because she has been living alone for a longer while now that her family has shifted to the city to work and earn. She has encouraged them all and herself as well to lead her motive for people’s welfare. 

She call’s me Nikita and keeps asking me if I’m hungry even after I have eaten.

Ofcourse there is a discomfort to live at someone’s place without paying them anything. 

But when they love you like their own and support you for your vision you know that you have increased your family. Right?

Role of a little leader – Children in Uttarakhand 

Suddenly I was warned, time is up.🌻

Coming from a place of electronic school bells I am now experiencing an old yet effective alarming process in the schools of Uttarakhand. Some how I found leadership in the students from these government primary schools. They are regularly taking control over their own time & schedule in the school. 

They have small hammers tied to a metal tray which we all are aware about. To alarm everybody for any purpose a child is told to hammer the metal tray. I encounter many such delightful responsibilities very often among children.
These are small leadership activities that go unnoticed. Because not an automatic alarm will take control over a child’s day to day activities but they themself will take this initiative where one is aware about it’s time to study or play with the guidance of their teachers. 

Have a happy reading 🌻❤
