Pictures of Indian Schools and Colleges
First Online: November 04, 2006

We have created this section at Kamat's Potpourri to record the
mood and ambience of classroom education in contemporary India. All of the
photographs were taken in recent years, and one can see the mood of the
students, lack of facilities in schools, and friendships the Indian students
develop with fellow students during their education.
The photographs span religions, economic background of the
pupils, and agegroups, but form a consistent theme "Campus Life".
