Since Gobar is the Culture of India!

Sharing fond memories from 25 years back—of ice creams, rookies, cow dung, and some cool environment stuff for kids.

************************************

In the summer of 1992, late at night in the basement of the then rented office space of the Centre for Science and Environment (CSE), the editorial team of the Down To Earth (DTE) magazine had a very long hot and tiring day putting together their very first issue.

No la-di-da for Beginners

In spite of all the brickbats and rebukes, a tabloid matures into a magazine as it finds its 'beginners' audience and speaks through quirky cartoons. 

*********************************************************************************

Healthy Learning Environments

Healthy Learning Environments

Classroom experiments for fostering a healthy learning environment—based on ‘community comments,’ cooperative lesson plans, and a ‘mystery person.’

**********************************************************************

I believe that the most important aspect in a positive learning environment is the rapport between a teacher and her students. When the students are convinced that their teacher cares for them and wants them to do well, they feel relaxed to open up and ask questions.
