Early April was all about exams and then on the final day of completion the Revolutionaries cheered with joy and welcomed their awaited summer break!
Summer break in the Kranti house boiled down to three words: Educational Boot Camp!
April was the start of Kranti Summer Boot Camp, where every day included an educational workshop, guest speaker/teacher and a field trip. The Revolutionaries’ kicked off the month by attending an exhibit by Dharavi kids. The Kranti girls stayed within the realm of self-expression and created artwork of their own. Our walls were decked out with Revolutionary art, stories and poems! The boot camp has been jammed packed with one exhilarating event after another, from puppet making to film debating. The Revolutionaries used their mental and physical strength while rock climbing and strategizing their way up a 43ft. wall! The girls have attended over 15 plays, films and workshops within the last month. On top of all the educational and fun- filled workshops they also attended various summer camps; ranging from survival skills in the Maharashtra forest to film making in the jungle of Chennai. One of the most exciting events of all was a trip to one of Mumbai’s islands where the Revolutionaries got to cool off and participate in water sports. They each got to ride a jet ski, learn how to kayak, and survive the twists and turns of a giant banana boat! On the home-front, Kranti welcomed a new Revolutionary to our home and family! Sheetal is 17 years old and she has come at the most exciting time. With boot camp on the agenda and her firecracker personality she has settled right in with our other Revolutionaries!
