Indie 2017

"Uttar Pradesh"

Since the early Vedic Period - knowledge was always the most precious in India. Well educated meant belonging to the priviledged class. Thousands of years passed away and nothing changed till contemporary ages. India - seemed unchanged done some revolutionary moves. Education has become Public. Still protected anyway, but from now on in some different ways. India started to protect children not the knowledge itself. Schools are a little forteress protecting kids. It seems to be almost impossible to get to any local primary school with a camera and lighting equipment. Tucked away behind a high fence, protected by security guards - children trying to do their best. Despite problems with the permises, overcrowded room - even in schools founded by the parents - pupils consistently, patiently learn. We have been permited to enter and visit small local primary school in Uttar Pradesh
