Presented by Rukmani Birla School, Jaipur as a part of Phad Se Padh initiative
When the idea of this project was pitched to us, our creative streak was instantly activated. This project transforms the orthodox connotations attached to Phad painting and develops a sense of cultural inquiry in the young minds of the country. The Economics Department decided to build the story on the subject of welfare economics, “Epic qua educational service.” The aim was to teach economics in an interesting way by incorporating the two contrasting elements of art and theory.
This interdisciplinary project managed to provide students and teachers alike with a deep introspection into the ever-changing culture of India. Our respected Principal, Dr Anjana Kumar firmly believes that children ‘learn by doing’ and this project has served as an eye opener where we have taken a traditional approach to teaching something present in the students’ syllabi. The Phad se Padh project is truly a melange of ‘modern’ and ‘conventional.’
