Welcome to Masti ki Paathshala
In the last one year that I have been working in the village, I have often thought about these questions. What is Masti ki Paathshala?
Let me take a step back and inform you a little about our history.
Masti ki Paathshala (which literally translates as ‘school of fun’) is a democratic learning centre set up in this village called Agar, in the Alwar District of Rajasthan, India, about 30 kilometres from the Sariska Tiger Reserve. We set up the first learning centre in 2017 and have plans of setting up such learning centres in villages across this entire region. To decode that term, a democratic learning centre is a place where children ‘call the shots’.
