In July, we had a meeting with 15 students from 6 villages. The meeting took over 2 hours. The students shared their views and thoughts on parents, teachers and society in general. We have audio recordings of the interaction. It is amazing to listen to the young minds. They are quite open to discuss issues. They all wanted such gatherings to continue and next time their parents wanted to be involved in as well. The Grama Samskrithy event on 2 Jan 2016 is meant for the same.
