Azim Premji University regularly organises various events involving faculty members as well as academicians, activists, artists, and other distinguished personalities from a wide array of fields. This section is a reflection of those events.
The Journalists Experiences: COVID - 19 stories from Rajasthan
We feature the experiences of two senior Journalists (Girish Paliwal from Rajsamand and Narpat Ramawat from Barmer) along with the inspirational experience of Babul from Barmer, an ambulance driver in Barmer who offered dignified cremation to those who lost their lives to Covid, in the second of the many Covid-19 stories from Rajasthan. This is a part of the “Chronicling Covid-19 in India” series.
A Doctor’s Experience: COVID-19 Stories from Rajasthan
A Doctor's Experience—featuring Dr B L Jat from Nathdwara District hospital, Rajsamand, who used to see 300 COVID-19 patients each day for 6+ months—is the first of the many stories that we bring from Rajasthan. It is a part of the “Chronicling Covid-19 in India” series.
A Book Fair in the Mountain
The Azim Premji Foundation team in Almora, Uttarakhand organised a book fair to build dialogue around the importance of reading, the library, and how it can aid in teaching-learning. What started with a potli (bundle) of books grew into a grand book fair accessed by the community from villages in the district.
Good Schools | Inspiring Stories of Indian Government Schools
The Government Primary School at Dhaurabhata, Chhattisgarh is a happy place. A school where children come 45 minutes before school starts and refuse to leave till much after the last school hour. Rakesh Chandrakar, the head teacher, is a young man with a definitive sense of purpose; he and his team are committed to developing and practicing the best pedagogy for their students. Their belief, that all children can learn, albeit in different modes and at their own pace, has made their classrooms inclusive in the true sense. No wonder, the children are loud and chirpy, bursting with curiosity and questions when the teacher is in class and are seen quietly immersed in their work when they are not, a rare sight in any school.
