I think the questions a student and the parent have in this generation is very different from before; how do I become a mountaineer, a forensic finance specialist, a musician, a climate activist or even a performer? While traditional education has been the grounds on which alternate education took its stand, alternate careers are now deeply rooted in this country. Our job at Zee Educare is to speak to young minds and their parents to bridge this information gap. With a presenting partner like BasicFirst, I think Mr. Priyadarshi and I share the one thing which is for any education – your basic comes first. You will be seeing the Mumbai edition become a much larger community, 100+ school activations, an incredible line up of speakers, media and digital assets reaching out to as many students and parents will make this one hard to miss.
