Pratham Books Champions : Hardik Vaidya

For International Literacy Day (8th September), we had a dream - we wished that 100 people would volunteer to conduct storytelling sessions across the country. We ended up finding more than 250 champions to conduct storytelling sessions across the country. We will be sharing the stories of all our champions through our blog.

Hardik Vaidya sent us this story. Hardik Vaidya is currently a second year Teach For India Fellow teaching sixth grade students, Happy Harvard Scholars in an under resourced government school in Mumbai. He is also the Founder of a Meditation based Leadership Development project called the EvolvingPath. You can reach him on Twitter at @hardikdvaidya

Storytelling Session conducted in Mumbai, 8th September 2012
Today was one of the best days I've had in a long time.
Those 150 happy curious faces made my strength go right up. My voice was in a bad shape and I was contemplating on how it would turn out.
But somehow,the energy sustained and it went well! Teachers & my Headmistress in the school loved the initative!

Thank you Hardik for spreading the joy of reading!
