During the fourth trip of VVS students to Jhanjrola with children of classes 7, 8, 9 and 12 was a phenomenal experience. Getting away from the city life and entering a completely different world the children were in a daze. So consumed in themselves they were unaware of the living conditions and lifestyle of the people living in villages on the outskirts of Delhi.
We started our first day by visiting the school and having an interactive circle time with students of Madhyamik Vidyalaya Jhanjhrola . Some of them learnt origami, some played kabaddi with VVS boys. Later all the children played musical chairs and cricket together.
The next day, VVS students joined the assembly followed by Yoga. They attended Mathematics and Hindi classes , later in the day VVS students taught English to class 7th and 8th. In the meanwhile grade 6th had prepared a play from their Hindi text book under Mrs. Rai's guidance. Then both the groups put up a cultural show. Later, Jhanjhrola village students learnt drawing by Mrs. Chauhan and drew caricatures of each other, and some weaved bands for each other.
In the evening, the village children showed everyone around the village and their homes. The children cooked on the choolha, interacted with the elders , got friendly with the Buffaloes and dogs, rode on the tractor, visited the fields and had a complete experience of simple village life at Jhanjrola.
We hope such experience will make the children more aware about life in rural India and they shall become inquisitive to learn more and more about their surroundings.
