70 Isha Vidhya students explored new
possibilities at a 10-day live online
workshop conducted by Chennai-based
Vaayusastra Aerospace Pvt. Ltd. By
drawing and making paper models,
students were able to enhance their
imagination and creative skills, and
to deepen their interest in aeronautics,
aerospace, and physics-related studies.

A team of professional theatre artists
and aeronautical engineers conducted
the science and story sessions about
space, aeronautics, and its history in
a play-way method through stories,
videos, and activities.

Students aspiring to become astronauts,
pilots, and scientists found the workshop
helpful and inspiring. Our science
teachers learned new ways to keep
students engaged by employing stories
and paper models to teach new scientific
concepts.

As the schools had been closed for
the Covid-19 pandemic, online sessions
like these provide great education
experience to the students of Isha
Vidhya. We thank everyone who
made these kind of sessions possible.

We thank you for your continued
support to Isha Vidhya, and we
look forward for your continued
support.

To make home learning more engaging
and add value to online learning, we
devised ‘Get Mentored’ sessions, where
renowned professionals from different
walks of life mentor our higher secondary
students to broaden their perspectives and
provide them with first-hand knowledge
about different professions.

Recently, Viswanath – an educator,
musician, entrepreneur, and co-founder of
Karadi Tales and Karadi Path Education
Company – mentored our students on how
to become successful entrepreneurs. He
sang and made them sing, recited poems,
and inspired them to think creatively and
be expressive.

Jeyanthee, from Isha Vidhya Nagercoil,
says that she learnt many new things and
gained the confidence to pursue her career
goals. Our teachers were also inspired by
the session and learnt new ways to guide
their students.

Some recent guest mentors were Gururaj
Desh Deshpande – US Entrepreneur,
Shalini – VP Infosys, and Atul Pant ,
Founder of Timeless Lifeskills
Foundation, UK.

Shyamala, a seasoned storyteller, has been
conducting interactive storytelling sessions
for Isha Vidhya students from Grades 3-5
since November last year. She narrates
stories from picture books, tall tales,
mythology, fiction, and folklore in 30-45
minute sessions. Most of her stories strive
to inspire compassion and discipline.

These online storytelling sessions aim to
enhance the students' listening and
comprehension skills, enrich their
communication skills, develop their
vocabularies, and improve interpersonal
interactions.

The students enjoy Shyamala's rhymes,
songs, voice modulations, and facial
expressions, which add vigor to her
stories. Kanishka says, “In the whole
week, Friday is a super day and the story
time is a super time.”

As we are working towards preparations
for the schools to reopen, we are so glad
to bring this report on the online activites
that are happening in the mean time.

We thank you so much for your support
to Isha Vidhya, and we look forward
for your continued support.

Amoga is a single-parent child –
her father died in a road accident.
With no support forthcoming from
relatives, her mother took up a job
as an Anganwadi staff in her village.
As her mother's meagre income
couldn't support Amoga and her
sister's private-school education,
they had to drop out.

The siblings scored well in the
evaluation test at Isha Vidhya
Cuddalore and were granted
scholarships. Amoga joined in
Grade 6 and has always been a
class topper. She feels that she is
driven to do well so that she can
help her mother and that's why
she's always been a school topper.
Amoga has just completed
Grade 12 with flying colors and
is intent on excelling in studies
to become an IAS officer and
serve people.

Amoga excels in oration and has
won many prizes in oration, art,
and athletics. She says that every
time she wins a prize, it is a
boost to her self-confidence and
validates her belief that anything
can be achieved with diligence.

Harini, who studies on a scholarship
in Grade 7 at Isha Vidhya Dharmapuri,
has trudged a difficult journey this far.
Her father was an alcoholic who
habitually abused his wife and was
diagnosed with brain cancer. He
couldn't be saved despite the family
spending INR 3 lakhS for his treatment.

Her mother now runs a shop and also
does tailoring from home to feed her 5
children but is still unable to meet their
basic needs.

While her siblings study at a government
school, Harini is doing well at Isha Vidhya –
she's diligent and meticulous with her
classwork and homework, and an active
participant in class discussions. She has
won prizes in athletics at the school level.

Harini loves the computer and math
classes and says that she is always
trying to do her best at academics to
make her mother happy and support
her. She wants to become a doctor –
like the doctor next door, and work
to serve poor people in villages.
