My documentary, GURUCOOL is a tribute to all my teachers & teachers around the world. It is a conversation with Indian educators about the 21st century education system. We hope to answer questions like: What is the true purpose of education? How do we extrapolate the future of education in this age of digital revolution that is moving technology ahead of people? How can education become a flourishing experience for everyone? Movers and shakers of Vadodara (also known as Baroda) city in India share their experiences, their aspirations and how they are impacting the shift.
Vadodara (Baroda) has always been home for me because that’s where my roots are. It is where most of my teachers, now retired, still reside, and whom I had an opportunity to meet after nearly two and half decades. All that nostalgia sparked my curiosity about the current education scenario. It made me wonder if things had changed with time. The prospect of introducing my hometown to the world, which is a perfect fusion of small-town charm with big-city vibes, was exciting for me. Above all, Vadodara has a rich educational heritage so it seemed like an ideal setting to discuss education.
