Amru, 26 believes If there is one attribute that separates man from man, it is not caste or religion or the colour of one’s skin, but education.

She feels everything else around a Nand Ghar is in black and white and the Nand Ghar alone is in colour, bright and cheery, strong and resolute, all for good, a symbol of hope personified, that reaches out, blind to caste and religious background, blind to gender, blind to social affiliation, only looking to enlighten. Nand Ghars are a symbol of justice to those who think education should be restricted to a certain class or gender.

Nand Ghars, she says, are playing a critical role in this social change that is quietly transforming the rural hinterland that make such a strong statement are important.
