    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.
