  1. I am a firm believer that if a child have to attend school and then again go to tution teacher, the child does not enjoy childhood and is mostly not interested in learning. Any child has his own way of learning and unless the child does not harm anybody physically or emotionally the child should be allowed to explore his world. He has his own way of learning, many times much better than our’s. Every child is an unique personality with capacity, likes and dislikes, interest and moods. The parent or elder has to play the role of facilitator and resource provider and child can take his journey very well. If I can be of any help I am willing to give. I am from Mumbai and educational and management consultant.

  38. HI,

    My Son is 9 years old and is an archer. He has several national accolades at his age level to his credit. thinking of moving him to NIOS from CBSE after a year, to focus better on his Archery. At the same time, I also do not want him to miss the socialising skills and childhood enjoyment that a school gives a child. I wanted to know if there any Open School in Chennai, especially for children who have special talents and want to focus on that?
    Will be grateful for any such information.

  39. Dear Ma’am,

    I have been highly inspired by your story as somewhere I too never agreed in the so called mass production the education system of today. I was very keen on home schooling my 7 yo son but had to give in to societal pressure also my own insecurities abt whether my decision would be right or wrong. Through this 1 year though he loves his school & teachers I dont see any personal growth in his learning graph…. wanted to get in touch with you for guidance. Hopeful to hear from you.
    Please help.

We have found him very hyperactive and would like to utilize this platform to chanelize his energy and his thoughts, and learning process to a different level. I want him to learn from this school that he can explore in whatever he interests in and we as parents are there to give him the wings to fly… I need your help in letting me know how to go about this and where can we enrol my son from the next academic year.
