Relationship with Our Place

As we think, reflect and dialogue around reimagining education, this essay by Janice Pariat who calls Shillong, its hills and forests her ‘place’, may help us imagine more & differently.
" Small lives, small towns, small creatures—often overlooked, dismissed, and yet, and yet teeming with life. All these years I have been led to believe that being here is not enough—that to do well and be “successful”, is to stay away, in a big city, another country. That this place is not enough. And now I see that it is. More than enough. A universe of enough, and more."
