Naihati – outskirts of Kolkata

Meeting school Principals was never more difficult. Ayan, Priya and I were constantly turned away because the Principals were busy preparing for the April examinations!. So much for driving for 2 hours and cold calling at schools. We did meet a very young enterprising school owner who had taken up franchiseeship of “alohaindia” – the company started by Shakuntala Devi, the Math Guru. The children at the school were well disciplined, the school premises were clean and the teachers always had a smile on their faces. We also met the hostile Principal of a Miltary school, who was not interested in having “non-army” personnel on the premises!!. Needless to say, we didn’t have much succcess at this school!!
