Today was our last set of workshops at JKKN university, Tamil Nadu. The team was to head onward to Kerala for another set of workshops. Among the trainers, Arnika and Vikram are a dynamic duo and together bring great energy to the workshops. Today’s crowd of students was really exuberant and it took a firm voice to handle them. Arnika knows exactly how to handle crowds and did a brilliant job at directing their attention to focus on what was going on in the workshop.
As always, our focus today was to encourage our students to express themselves freely in whatever language they felt comfortable. We involved some of the faculty as well in the activities today and this worked brilliantly in encouraging the students to participate more. Arnika was slightly under the weather today but the soldier that she is, didn’t let this affect the training one bit. Together, Arnika and Vikram conducted the workshops brilliantly.
We ended the day on a high note, with a clapping and laughing room full of students. Nothing makes us happier than when they have a good time and also take back some positives from our workshops. It was time to bid adieu to the faculty and students and head for Kerala. A quick coffee break later, we set off for the train station. Exhausted but content with our time at the university.
