Photo Story: A Modern Day Gurukulam

The Gurukulam system marked the beginning of education in Ancient India and it continues to prevail in several states including Tamil Nadu. A Gurukulam is a place where shishyas (students) and the Guru (teacher) live together and pursue Vedic education. The students live together, irrespective of their social standing. This photo series by Shankar Narayan shows how the modern day Gurukulams are keeping the concept of inculcating discipline, imparting religious knowledge and preparing students to face the world, alive.
