Meenakshi explaining about our work to teachers

Location: Saint Paul’s school, Boring Canal Road Patna.

Time- 9.00 am

Meenakshi and Jey meeting the teachers who have been asked to come for few hours.

Teacher 5- I thought you guys will teach us some paper and scissor work.

Teacher 6- Waste of time. Don’t understand why we were called from home.

Teacher 7- Oh no, not again. No more workshops.

Teachers decided to paint Alphabets with a twist

Frankly speaking teachers had no idea about what we do and how we do it. No one told us that we travel on a Green bullet and we have travelled many schools

They didn’t know that we do not do workshop. We do not teach.

 

Actually we learn from them and help them make their school good. So for three hours we painted on the walls with the help of these teachers only.

They painted hindi alphabets as well.

They proposed the idea of marine life, facial expressions with alphabets and the musical instruments. Meenakshi helped with the colour scheme and designs.

They wasted a bit of color but at the end of the day their reaction was something like this.

Teaches who were reluctant get involved deeply

  • Its almost close to that ‘painting-competition’ scene of ”Taare Zameen par” 🙂 I think its hard to reciprocate that feeling unless we spend some time painting with you guys (which we want to, sooner!). But one thing for sure, You guys have understood the real colours of life! Love you 🙂
