Just finished reading all your posts about your stay at Thulir, today. I had read a few posts here and there, but read them in order this time.

I am so glad that you have documented your experiences so well. Sanjeev, I was really interested and amazed with the electronics classes you conducted. The concept of everything - voltage, current, power - being the same was an eye-opener (the way any layman would consider electronics) and funny at the same time.

I especially liked how you decided to drop the conventional approach to teaching circuits and let the kids enjoy some hands-on experience. And once you had piqued their curiousity, you introduced the theory. I guess it is quite important to change the content you teach depending on how the students respond.
