Discovering India Class I and II

 Discovering India Project is an innovative way to understand about diverse states in India and its rich cultural heritage.

To escape the summer heat and to explore the picturesque beauty of the snow capped mountains and colourful valleys, James and Radhika, our two main characters of the ‘Discovering India’ project, visited the states of Himachal Pradesh and Jammu and Kashmir through aptly made Power Point Presentations. Our young learners appreciated the scenic aura of these two states through the eyes of James and Radhika. 
The first destination in this part of their journey was Himachal Pradesh, with Shimla as their base. Our young explorers were fascinated by the toy train, running from Kalka to Shimla. They learnt important facts and information related to the state through a handicrafts display and power point presentation. The PPT highlighted the topography and climate of the region, also indicating important cities, famous temples, tourist attractions etc. 
The handicrafts display brought to life the Himachali culture. It depicted the beautiful wooden products sold in the quaint lakkad bazaar, the lush apple orchards, famous apple juice and the Himachali woollens. 
Taking the story further, next in the itinerary was the ‘Paradise on Earth’ --Kashmir. James and Radhika had flown to Srinagar to attend the birthday celebration of a cousin. Our young explorers were mesmerized by the houseboats and shikaras, as the story recreated the beauty of the Dal Lake…abound with lotus blossoms and flanked by the glorious Chinar trees, unique to the state. One could almost taste the scrumptious Kashmiri cuisine,’Wazwan’ and the famous Kashmiri, ‘kahwa’. The children also received valuable information about the main market place of Srinagar, ‘Lal Chowk’ renowned for the traditional Kashmiri handicrafts and souvenirs. 
A power point presentation about the state depicted the important tourist destinations, the lofty mountains famous for skiing and other adventure sports and the array of alluring flowers. 
The handicraft display of the fine Kashmiri embroidery, exquisite woodcarving and paper mache crafts left the children awestruck. 
Our panoramic northern mountain states, rich in their cultural heritage, pristine in their natural environment are every Indian’s pride and glory and our children enjoyed learning about them.
