हम सभी अपने जीवन में अनेक प्रकार के लोगों से मिलते हैँ और कुछ लोग हमें प्रभावित भी करते हैँ। वैसे ही लोग में से एक प्रवीण जी के बड़े भैया मनोज जी हैं और भैया के साथ जो बातचित हुई उसे आप सभी के साथ साझा कर रही हूँ। प्रवीन जी, बिहार के जमुई जिले में लखनपुर गाव में रहने वाले एक युवा है जो इ-सक्षम में प्रशिक्षण के लिए आते है| हमेशा से सेशन में उनके तर्क, भागीदारी, उनके सीखने की उत्सुकता और उनकी लगन देख उनसे प्रेरित हुई हूँ और इसके पीछे का कारण उनके भैया से…


Reflection is a key part of the learning process. It brings more self-awareness and enables us to take key learning from experiences and mistakes. Likewise, our journey at India Fellow began with looking back at our key moments and drawing our life map. The induction days began with a lot of chaos and confusion blended with fun. After all, when there are 20+ people in a room, coming from diverse background, there has to be different perception. By the time strangers became family it was time to say good bye to Udaipur from where it all began. …


In last eight months, I have often found myself contemplating on what it means to add quality in education. What are the gaps beyond classroom learning that people are facing as challenges to access the kind of education they need and deserve? ‘Quality Education’ is subjective in nature and there may not be a uniform definition. But i-Saksham gave me some perspective through various conversations with students and educators.

A while ago, I got a chance to participate in an event called Baal Utsav (Children’s Festival) organized by i-Saksham. It is a platform for students to show their talent by…

मुझे कस्तूरबा गाँधी बालिका विद्यालय से जुड़े लगभग 4 महीने हो गए हैं। पहले दिन जब मैं आंचल, प्रिया, स्मृति और ममता के साथ विद्यालय गई थी, तब बच्चियों का उत्साह देखकर मैं भी सकारात्मक उर्जा से भर गई थी।

वे बाहर से आए व्यक्तियों को बहुत स्नेह और सम्मान देते हैं। कई बार मन में आया कि क्या वहा रुक सकती हूं? क्या उन्हें और जानने का मौका मिल सकता है? क्योंकि जब भी किसी सेशन के दौरान गई, तब उनसे बात करने का ज़्यादा मौका नहीं मिला।

पहली बार कस्तूरबा विद्यालय में रुकने का मौका मिला

खैरा गाँव के कस्तूरबा विद्यालय में अध्यापकों से थोड़ी बहुत बातचीत…


I was privileged to access my Right to Education. Until 6th std., I studied at St. John’s School, an ICSE board convent school. We were 70 of us in a class. The attendance call would take about 15 minutes every day. When I was in class 6, I observed my cousins who went to a different school and always spoke about the activities and sports they had there. I was tempted to join them and begged my parents to change my school, totally unaware of our finances and the hefty school fees. I can still recall the conversation between my…


About a couple of months ago, I started a new journey. From Gujarat, I had come to Bihar. There wasn’t much on my mind except knowing a bit about my new host organization, i-Saksham. It primarily works on Education in Munger and Jamui areas of Bihar. When I first visited their website, the caption “ Seekhen Sikhayen “ caught my attention. It gave me a strong sense of learning. I was motivated to join.

On the first day, I reached tired after a 24-hour journey and thought of taking rest but life doesn’t always go as per your plan. As…
