        I am a freelance media person who is focusing on kids since last many years. Presently I work on kids with autism, make interesting training tools for them which I would like to introduce to the rural kids too as I feel they will take it as fun and learn. I am interested.

    This is really a very good step towards educating the rural kids. I would really like to be the part of this. I am a MBA and with a admin experience of over 5 years. Also my age is 33 and i am living in Delhi. I think these kind of steps should not only restricted to certain areas, as today if you go to any village or small town, there the condition of Govt schools are so pathetic. This step must be followed to them to empower the children with modern education. This is really a great step and i look forward for something like this if happen in near by area of my residence.
