    This is a brilliant article. I see immense sensitivity and daring spirit in this piece. True, education is a process of perpetual learning and unlearning. What the ‘security conscious middle class’ fears as ‘risks’ is actually the real turning point in life; and it transforms one. Elizabeth Day realized it. She was then just 13 year old; yet her parents sent her to the then Soviet Union. She saw the transformation, witnessed the process of historical transformation. And she learned what could not be learned in super-hygienic AC classrooms in the posh localities of Delhi and Mumbai. Believe it, The New Leam is doing a great job.We need sensitivity. Even if you find difficulties, there are still sane people in the world whose blessings will enable you to go ahead with this beautiful project.


Thank you for your important reflection.
