Summer Fun at Kranti's Home

Revolutionaries with their protected egg

Kranti's search for land continues in Mumbai, a city with the one of the most expensive real estate markets in the world. 

As we search for our future location, we are enjoying our time in the current flat, where we have secured the lease for one more year. 

This week, we held the first Staff vs. Revolutionaries Field Day, which included an egg drop challenge. Both teams' eggs survived the fall from the 9th floor of the building! After many mental and physical challenges, with the scores for each teams tied, the day culminated with an intense game of capture the flag. Holding out for a tie breaker, we got so wrapped up that we didn't realize our water--which only comes on for a few hours in the mornings and evenings--was running and flooding our flat upstairs! We were greeted with water covering the main floors, so, in the end, the staff and revolutionaries worked together to clean the mess and prepare for dinner.

 It's been a summer full of camps and educational excursions. The girls left this morning for their final summer adventure--a week-long camping adventure in the jungle. They will be doing all kinds of outdoor activities and have an opportunity to camp under the stars, far outside the lights of Mumbai. 

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 many educational activities on the agenda and her firecracker personality she has settled right in with our other Revolutionaries!

The final test...and the winning staff egg!
