When I was a small girl I liked flying kites. They gave me a sense of freedom. As I kept my first steps in school I started missing them. School was fun but the studying part was not. I only remember memorizing books and climbing up the grades. Strangely I never knew why I was reading them and why I don’t remember any of it now. Since then I have been searching a way out.

One fine day when I was struggling through the hard chains of our educational system, I came to know about ‘School in the Cloud’.

When I was a small girl I liked flying kites. They gave me a sense of freedom. As I kept my first steps in school I started missing them. School was fun but the studying part was not.

One fine day when I was struggling through the hard chains of our educational system, I came to know about ‘School in the Cloud’. I applied for the position of coordinator of Gocharan SinC lab 0 and I got it. When I entered this organization I felt like a newborn as I couldn’t understand any part of it. Suneeta Kulkarni mam was the only person who kept me awake and made me strive forward.

I still remember my first day here. I left my house at 10.30 in the morning to reach the station. Local train was the most convenient way to reach Gocharan as it takes more than two hours by road. After 45 mins a train arrived at the station full of passengers. I couldn’t enter the train as most of the passengers were blocking the entrance. It usually stops for 45 seconds. I ran here and there to find an access.

Finally I could hop into one compartment. I was standing near the door entry as all the seats were occupied. Everytime I met Suneeta mam we never use to fall short of conversations talking about my deadly struggle in the local train. Sometimes she felt so bad that she would pick me up from my place to save the day!

As soon as I reached the place it made me remember my slum project experience which we had to do in class 12.
