SHIKSHAMITRA is a process for learning to live better. It is a space where one

learns to keep well and to help others keep well too. Shikshamitra has an address.

However, it goes beyond this – permeating into the lives of many, influencing

one’s choices in life and ways of life. To be associated with Shikshamitra is to assume

the responsibility of trying to live better. It is a continuous attempt to search for

activities that inspire life and build trust, or, it is an attempt to keep away from

anything to the contrary. Shikshamitra is a means toward becoming aware of

how much one can be and knowing exactly what one’s limitations are.

Field Trip to the Village

Our students wrote nice reports in English on our recent school field trip to visit our umbrella organization, Swanirvar, also working to develop alternative education in the rural areas of West Bengal:

Our Trip to Swanirvar

We went to Swanirvar on 25th April.
We left at 6 o'clock in the morning.
First we took taxi for Sealdah from Shikshamitra.
Then we took train to Maslandpur.
Then we took trekker to Swanirvar in Adhar Manik.
It took 3 hours to reach Swanirvar.
We saw the Ichhamati river, mango trees, and lot of greenery.
We played football.
We went swimming in the pond.
We taught the students of Swanirvar wall painting/
I liked the mango trees and the Ichhamati River.
I disliked the power cut.
We enjoyed the trip.
