Documentation projects:

An image resource- Bangalore and its environs.

This is a documentation image resource which we share with the visiting groups as part of our study visit programmes.

It is essentially a series of hyperlinked powerpoints which includes images of: Silvepura, Bangalore, Work in our area, farming, festivals, folk culture, markets and shops.

It also includes a set of drawings, done by the children of Sita School, Silvepura, which explains life in our area, the History of our village, and water in our area.

It can be used as part of a topic which teaches about aspects of Indian life, and to inform and develop on a comparative locality study.

 

Four short films- 'Celebrating our stories':

This was a project to document, film and edit four short stories. The films were made as part of a story sharing project called "celebrating our stories" which we were involved in as the Indian-end co-ordinators. It was a pilot project run by the Tony Blair Faith Foundation for sharing stories between primary schools across the world.  During the project four schools in Bangalore, India, linked with three schools in London, UK,  to share their stories, in order to understand the common values which exist within the different world faiths.

Uddalakka's question. A short story from the Brihadaranyaka Upanishad. It is about the mystery of creation, and knowledge.The story is told and enacted by the children from the Parikrma Humanity Foundation centre in Koramangala, Bangalore.

Tenali Rama. This is one of the many short stories featuring Tenali Rama. He was a court-poet of the Vijayanagara Empire in the 16th century. He is noted for brilliance and wit and for mocking other poets and great personalities. The story is told and enacted by the children from the Parikrma Humanity Foundation centre in Nandini Layout, Bangalore.
