Rewind. Recap.

A quick recap of some of our favourite posts from last week…

We took a look at the state of education in Chhattisgarh and the facilities available for the Mushahar Community in Bihar. Came across Culturally Teaching and learnt about the relation between teaching and culture. We are also loving the lovely pictures that we come across on their School Snapshot Project. While we learnt about a vision for low-cost schools, we also learnt about a certain company’s success with online lessons in India. See how science-based education becomes more accessible to kids when they get their hands on these bamboo microscopes. Finally, read about Mahatma Gandhi’s take on education.

While railway bookstalls in India get a makeover, a newspaper tries to increase its readership by drawing it front page. ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ topped the list of most inspirational books. Now, with the numerous e-readers entering the market, you could probably read all those books on them. But, then again, did you know about the DRM threat faced by Kindle owners? BBC released a program under a Creative Commons License and Wikipedians will soon have to gear up to vote on the adoption of a Creative Commons License.

We enjoyed Scott Campbell’s illustrations, read excerpts from Dirty Wow Wow and Other Love Stories, travelled with Prashant Miranda’s Lovely Travel Paintings/Diaries and drooled over Sher Christopher’s paper sculptures.

If you missed our Twitter update, here it is.
