Feast for Thought

Not pontificating. Only trying to bat on the side of the environment. And ethics. And simple living. And slowing down. (And trying to learn and practise before preaching or teaching...)

Catch them Young, this way

Have you been dreaming of seeing a whole generation sensitised to issues of Sanitation, Environment, Respect for Diversity and Individual empowerment? The Aseema Trust, Chennai is doing just that, through their novel project "Spin a Yarn.. Self and Society" in Ten schools of Chennai. With the support of Sir Dorabjee Tata Trust, Devika and her team have started to teach spinning of Charkha to 12-year-old students of ten local schools.
One wishes the team hurdle-free progress.
Aseema has found a practical way to perpetuate the spirit of self-reliance immortalised by the Charkha.
Look up the other projects of Aseema Trust here
Watch for a few seconds Gandhiji spinning at the Charkha here

The You-Tube link was good.
I am not aware of similar projects here in Bangalore. Good start by the Aseema Trust!
