For four days, I’ll be at IIM Ahmedabad doing two things that I absolutely love. 1) Host India’s largest App Developers Unconference, AppFest 2013 http://www.appfest.in/ and 2) Photograph one of the best red brick buildings in India. Dates: July 25 till 29.
A great video to watch in the morning.
I just finished the first leg of my teaching at BIM (Bharatidasan Institute of Management), Trichy. I try and steer away from traditional PPT driven teaching and instead choose to tap into the collective knowledge of the students. Before teaching a subject, the entire class is broken into small grops to do assignments on the subject. Because most of the students come with work expereince, this helps them to share their learning on the subject. The then share their lessons to the rest of their classmates. This gives me the perfect opportunity to step in to add key points on the subject. Here are photos from one of the many group discussions we had in the Digital Marketing Class. More Photos
It was our first Finger Millets harvest at Vaksana Farms.(Third harvest overall, after Rice and Black Grams). We grew finger millets (or Kezhvaragu in Tamil) in 1.5 acres of land. This was primarily for our consumption and the idea is to grow our own good. A very enthusiastic and hardworking team of volunteers from The Weekend Agriculturist helped us in partly harvesting the crop. Here are photos from the harvest. More Photos
We celebrated my Dad’s birthday at our farm in a unique way. Instead of a cake, we had a freshly harvested water melon for him to cut. It was great to have the entire team of farm volunteers sing the birthday song and wish him. It made his day!
