Some of you may have read my article about Tata Dhan Academy in ThinkChangeIndia. Today, I got a note from Ananda Mahto, an American, who has moved to Madurai, to teach English @ Tata Dhan. He has made some great progress getting the students to better express themselves via writing and producing audio/video materials. As part of the interview, I had the opportunity to speak to all the senior offices of the Academy who continue to inspire me to do more developmental work. Below is the note from Ananda and link to the student-created newsletter.
I just wanted to drop you a quick line to let you know that the students I work with have just re-initiated their student newsletter and the first new issue is now available. You can view it online here: http://tdapdm.wordpress.com/2010/10/01/spectrum-issue-4/
I’d like any feedback you might have to offer (and I’m sure the students would too). Also, if you know others who might be interested in the newsletter, please feel free to forward the link.
I was read the Interview with Dr G Paran Gowda and found this quote of Vivekananda striking:
“Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life—think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success.”
