All the new-age practices that are being talked about/ introduced/ welcomed in schools today are something that a young man put into practice, more than 100 years ago, in India.

Gijubhai Badheka's pedagogical input was the evolution of a system of education that was instinctual, intelligent and suitable to every classroom and school. Gijubhai believed that schools ought to implement a democratic system of teaching children that encourages changemaking, critical-thinking and freedom.

It is time to celebrate Gujibhai and learn how he used stories, music, dance, travel, and the play-ground to create a unique pedagogy that was intuitive and child-prioritised.


How much of this can we put into practice or re-learn? This and more in a book that tells his story with today’s lens. Authored by pedagogista, educational activist and changemaker Dr Swati Popat Vats and author, editor and storyteller Vinitha.
