jmjMissed Phunsukh Wangdu?
The real life Phunsukh Wangdu, who inspired Aamir Khan’s character in 3 Idiots, is back with a new plan for a different kind of learning.
Over the years Sonam Wangchuk (below) has changed the education landscape of Ladakh through his out-of-the-box ideas. Scroll down to see his plans for the future of alternative education.
Education reformist
Wangchuk, the founding director of the Students Educational and Cultural Movement of Ladakh (SECMOL), said he now has plans of setting up the Himalayan Institute of Alternatives which will have different disciplines – busines, tourism and others.
Why didn’t Wangchuk start his own school
This was his reply when he was asked why he did not build a private school. “You could either make a great little pond and raise its level by several metres or you could add on to the water of the ocean. For me the ocean matters more.”
