True to our philosophy of Ananda and Jigyasa, if we expose the child to as many avenues of various intelligences as Howard Gardner shared – Musical, Mathematical, Linguistic, kinesthetic, Art and nature – apart from helping the child to interact with fellow children, the child will naturally blossom into a creative, analytical, social, physical, humane and expressive being. This we have been experiencing with both Mallika and Anandita.
Every visit to any of the avenues or arenas brings out the compulsive learner and executor in Mallika. As soon as she comes home, Mallika closes her door as she wants to create something and will not allow anyone to step into her room while she is at work. This teacher’s day she surprised us with her creations for her teachers… Have a look!
Each of her creations have always been influenced by what she experiences from her surroundings – may be music, dance, painting exhibit, games and sports etc. Whatever she experiences, she has the compulsive desire from within to express in a creative way. As we do often, once we went to a group fine art exhibition where one of the artists had created an installation of a broken egg with its white and yellow flowing. This was a huge installation. The moment she came home, she closed the door and created her installation influenced by the ‘egg’. Just have a look….
