About Saajhi Samajh 3

AS we stayed locked down to fight the COVID-19 pandemic, our physically distanced world was suddenly rocked and shaken by the shocking incident in the virtual space that is now infamous as “Bois Locker Room”. This deeply disturbing incident involving adolescents has exposed the deep-rooted malaise of misogyny and misplaced masochism in our society.

How acutely has this deviant social attitude, influenced by patriarchal prejudices and gender disparity, taken hold of our young minds? Why is our education system not being able to counter this dangerous trend and weed out perverse cultural biases? Don’t we need a greater symbiotic link between formal education and parenting and familial interventions at home?

The time to confront these complex and inconvenient questions is now. How can we move forward to reform our education system to unlock the young minds from the dark shadows of societal prejudices? To know more about this perplexing issue, please join us at our annual event Saajhi Samajh at 4 pm IST on June 3, 2020 (Wednesday).

We are grateful to have Mr. Manish Sisodia, Deputy Chief Minister, Government of Delhi, along with key stakeholders such as teachers, parents, and educators to reflect on the critical questions and set the ground for a positive agenda:

  • Role of school education in shaping the “inner being” of children
  • Ways to enable teachers to respond to the psychological and emotional needs of children and teenagers.
  • How to enrich and reinvent school curriculum — especially for the middle graders — to shift the focus towards socially sensitive issues including Gender Sensitivity, Societal Responsibility, Ethical Decision Making, inclusivity among others
  • How can social media and technology be best leveraged for engendering positivity in children?

This webinar is part of the seminar series of Tech Mahindra Foundation, titled “Saajhi Samajh” (or Shared Understanding). This initiative aims to create a broader platform for discourse on issues relevant to enriching teachers’ training in India. Through the Foundation’s flagship program on Education called Shikshaantar, over 30,000 teachers from government primary schools have been trained through a series of capacity-building workshops in major Indian cities,

In this series, two seminars have been conducted on Teacher Development. These have brought together an array of experts, specialists, field practitioners, civil society participants, government representatives, and educationists. The upcoming third in the series is being organsied as a webinar to Tespond to the physical distancing norms at the time of this pandemic. The show goes on to provoke societal response and to broaden outreach and awareness,
