NFLC Student’s Blog: My thoughts

By Agalya


I like the morning 8:30 reading sessions very much. I am always eager to listen to the stories and curious to gather sensitive informationfrom them.The stories helped me understand how to ask sensitive questions regarding issues like gender. Listening to stories about the Badaga death rituals was very intriguing and I learnt a lot about them.

I loved our visit to the Bikkapathy Mund, where I was able to ask and gain lots of information regarding gender practices. Their culture was very new to me. The Toda temples and the forest around the village were wonderful. I was especially pleased to see the unity among the village people. All the class sessions through this week were very useful to me.
