Abstract

When Tagore was asked why he started a school, he responded by saying that he had such miserable memories of his own brief encounters with schooling where he was confined to a room with rows of benches, bare walls and high windows, that he longed to give children an i experience of freedom and nature . Schools are often restricted spaces both physically and mentally with little to stimulate the imagination or challenge the body to movement. The world of home and the village are usually in sharp contrast to the often enclosed, crowded and unfriendly space of the classroom.
