This month, the students are preparing a number of poems and short stories in English, Hindi, and Punjabi, which they can be called upon to recite in class at any time. They also took a day-long field trip to the Rose Garden, where they picnicked and played a number of games.

There remains a male fraction of our student body. I have decided that, given their strong interest, I am willing to compromise on the earlier policy of only admitting girls to the learning center. This allowance will, however, further the goal that this center be a tool for the empowerment of women, as it will build the girls’ confidence to compete with and do as well as or better than the boys in class activities both at Gyaan Ghar and in their primary schools.
