In my work with Azim Premji Foundation, I travelled to almost every block where the Foundation was working with government schools, be it Deesa in Banaskantha or Mori in Uttarkashi or Pindwara in Sirohi. So when the editor of Learning Curve asked me to contribute an article to this special issue on public education, I thought that the best way I could fulfil the editor’s mandate was to recall and write what I saw on the ground. But I must also confess that this is not going to be a neatly sequenced narrative but a dip into memories of visits to schools, and hoping that as I move from incident to incident, I will still end up with a kind of meaningful narrative.
