The Essence of Education: Beyond the Main Cities in India


  • Bangalore International Centre

Education is the possibility of building something better—a better future, a better community, a better society, a better world. But what really is education? What does it mean to build a better future? And how does one build this future—beyond the metropolitan cities and the schools for the elite?

In A Matter of the Heart, Anurag Behar takes us to schools in remote villages of India. Here, the right to education is in constant struggle with the need for survival. But what emerges is the heart-warming and life-affirming story of how people and communities, energised from within, are changing lives—of individuals and the nation.

This book is testimony to the essence of education: “The heart of the matter is that it is a matter of the heart.”

Open to all, free to attend.
