Balancing your role as a son/daughter on the one side, and parenting your own children (present or future) on the other side – if you feel like the cheese between two slices of bread, let us explore experientially how we can make life happier and enjoyable for all of us.

It is open house, do what you want, be with nature, explore all around, flirt with the frogs, watch the clouds.

Also a chance for a one-to-one with Sreedhar!

In the serene and salubrious environs of Manthan, those who have enrolled (or are planning to enroll now) can avail the benefit of a unique 1:1 introspection and growth session with Sreedhar (our Man of the Manthan Match). All you have to do is write down the following points and give it to front office in a sealed envelope marked for Sreedhar. He will then spend time with you (under the gulmohar tree) helping you to put your thoughts in order and improve your relationship across the generations.

Write down:

  1. One relationship you have with a person from a different generation (higher or lower) that is going very smoothly.
  2. One relationship you have with a person from a different generation that is not going well at all, and you would like to improve it. You need not disclose names of the persons if you wish, but do write your name. Please restrict to 300-500 words max, rest of the details can be through personal discussion.

Remember, it is first come first served.

Leading Banjara Academy's online email counselling team of volunteer-counsellors, I realize it is not an easy task reaching out to a person one has never met, never seen, without the added advantage of gestures, eye contact, a gentle reassuring touch, tone of voice and yet providing empathy, positive strokes, making the person feel heard and understood.

With the aid of only written words, it is quite a task building trust, making people open up and share and helping them cope and feel better. So when in many instances they write back saying thank you and that they feel so much better, the feeling one gets is priceless and incomparable - knowing one has done something right, something good!

Hats off to all the volunteeer-counsellors of Banjara Academy who have been carrying on this work silently, anonymously for the last couple of years. Truly commendable! - Ali Khwaja
