Sainthia, Birbhum is a place 3 hours away from Kolkata. Like the distance it is somewhat lagging behind Kolkata in terms of lifestyle, but not very far. There are a few odds but most people fight and try to survive with whatever little they have. The hunger for knowledge is what is overwhelming here. Nothing is enough to the bright students here. The Vedic Maths team is in Sainthia trying to quench this thirst.
Even though we are finding it a little difficult to adjust to this place as we are used to all the luxuries for so many years. But, what is holding us back is the enthusiasm and the quest to know it all from the students. The age group of the students vary quite a lot, starts from 8 years and you will also find businessmen. the coordination and the involvement shown by them is really fascinating. They have proved that they can challenge anyone with better privileges.
