It looks like the objective of your education is to prepare children from our village to go to Delhi and the children studying in Delhi to move to America, said some old women of the village, a few years after the first SIDH school had started functioning there. It looks like they were right, that all of us who grow up in India have a sense of inadequacy built into ourselves and school education reinforces it. Is there anything we can do about this? Well, the first step may be using our lived experience to validate the stories we have been told about who we are.

The SIDH blog collects together a wide variety of stories that are beginning to be heard as our country wakes from a long and disturbed sleep. See if they resonate with you and like Hanuman you are reminded of your strength. Click here...
