“When my own children entered school, I saw a vast difference in the education system I had studied in and the one in India.
In the USA, I grew up in an environment where students not only learned on their own, but also added to their learnings each year. The slate was not wiped clean after exams. On the other hand, my children here were trapped in a vicious cycle of ‘rote, replicate and forget’ soon after the exam - all encouraged by the Indian education system.
The first Little Geniuses were my own two kids. I showed them that learning could be fun; letters came to life, like King E or Shy Y. Pronouns fought Adjectives while Gerunds and Verbs competed for attention. Vocabulary became clearer when studied under the microscope of etymology. The English language, after all, is a reflection of our world’s history.
From my own two came their friends. And then, friends of friends. Little Genius has grown from a humble dining table to classrooms at three centres to packed auditoriums just through word of mouth. And now, to a limitless online audience.
