There was once a heavy storm in an idea land, situated in the Tequatorial region with a lot of sunlight. This place was also called sometimes as land of the sun because of abundant sunlight and wind. But the storm this time was very strong and a lot of trees were uprooted, and a few flag poles had also fallen down. There was thankfully no loss of life. After the storm, people started rebuilding the damaged structure. One young girl popularly called Mini was assisting her mother in cleaning the debris in the garden. After a while, she noticed that storm had brought lot of pages of a torn book. She was very happy when she saw on each page an interesting innovative idea of some young student. She collected all the pages and made a few small paper wind mills. When the mill run, she could feel the flow of wind in the garden. A lot of other children also gathered seeing her so happy, they were intrigued to see so many new innovative ideas printed on each wing of the wind mill. It seemed the pages had been torn of an art or idea book? Which was this book? read more

Alone traveller was walking through the mountains. He did not have to Awalk alone, since he was part of a group which used to walk through different parts of the country to learn and share, be indifferent sometimes, and care. But he was feeling a bit sad inside recalling something, so wanted to walk alone for a while. But as he was growing old (so did people say, he did not want to believe that), he wanted to spend more and more time alone. On a turn through the mountains covered with rich green vegetation, comprising creepers, some bushes finding space among cracked rocks, he saw a leaking water pipe. The water was oozing out like a fountain. He was worried that this will reduce the pressure of the water and may be, some people living at the end of the pipeline might not get enough clean water. read more

Once upon a time, two brothers who lived on adjoining farms fell into a conflict. It was the first serious rift in the 40 years of their farming side by side, sharing machinery, and trading labour and goods. Post rift, the long collaboration fell apart. It began with a small misunderstanding and grew into a major difference, and finally, exploded into an exchange of bitter words, followed by weeks of silence. read more

Walking in a tribal region having one of the highest educational coverage and attainment in the country was a revealing experience. Though at a geographically disadvantaged location, Tripura beat Kerala in literacy percentage in 2013. It is not surprising that numerous private schools open in summer for children. But, significant poverty still characterises the Gandachal region of Tripura. Located on the border of Bangladesh, the region seems peaceful. Though, it has a history of social protests. The shodhyatris observed the traditional handlooms, crop varieties, musical instruments, and experienced a pervasive culture of sharing values and a warm hospitality. Women here weave colours in their foldable handlooms as also in life while the younger generation has learnt the art of fusing traditional and contemporary designs. Children, as always, amased us by their unbound imagination to solve problems. Culturally rich, managing local knowledge so well, the Chakma, Tripura, Riang and other communities are asserting their identity. We have to join hands with them to collaboratively discover new paths that don’t exacerbate their exploitation and instead enhance their access to modern institutions and technologies. read more
