Education is not just literacy;
textbooks are means not an end;
education is not only about getting
a job - it is about being able to lead
a happy and meaningful life.
-Pawan Gupta.


Our current work focuses on the following broad themes:

- Collating and discussing the various voices on Bharatiyata that are slowly beginning to remake and heal our national self-image wounded by the fake narratives of our colonial past.
- The impact of modernity on education and what we can learn from our human-centered traditional systems
