Very informative session. It was very helpful in understanding rural issues from a development/rural journalism point of view.

The range of topics that were discussed really gave the conversation depth and value , enabling students to think in tangible , practical terms about developmental journalism. Enjoyed it thoroughly.

When I walked in I did think that the session would be a repetition of what we do in class but it was not so. It made me look at my own village differently and understand the layers engaged in the ecosystem

The children were so moved they didn't speak a word for nearly 15 minutes. They actually left the room in silence and only came back much later to discuss the current onion crisis.

I learnt that lots of things happen in rural India that we don’t know about.

The colloquium with P. Sainath and later with PARI Education at our campus was an eye-opener as we saw how journalistic perspectives can throw up issues of sociology, environment and anthropology, which we consider academic domains.

The [PARI Education] workshop really helped us to look beyond the newspapers and see the real India.

I was embarrassed that I didn’t know about all the struggles in rural India. You made this really fun and sort of depressing!
