SHIKSHANTAR: The Peoples’ Institute for Rethinking Education and Development

Last month I visited  Shikshantar , , met his founder Manish Jain and  found worthwhile.

Shikshantar, a not-for-profit movement, was founded to challenge the culture of schooling. Today, various institutions of thought-control inhibit many diverse forms of human learning and expression, and block organic processes towards just societal regeneration. We are committed to creating spaces where individuals and organizations can together engage in dialogues to:

(1) generate meaningful critiques to expose and counter existing models of Education and Development, and

(2) elaborate (and continually re-elaborate) complex shared visions and practices of learning communities for Swaraj in South Asia.

Shikshantar is based in Udaipur (Rajasthan, India). Our core team works in collaboration with local and translocal Partners through dynamic processes of cocreation and’research for action’. To learn more, or to find out how to join our efforts, please contact us at:

    Though I belong to Udaipur, I did not know about it.

    I look forward to visiting the place soon.

    Thanks for the post.
