Divyaa an Economist, Shlokapreneur, Writer and Sochcaster is the Founder of GURUKULAM – The Shloka Learning Centre, Bangalore (Regd).
GURUKULAM was found on 20th October 2014
GURUKULAM is the first of its kind ONLINE SHLOKA SCHOOL which caters to kids across the globe. The main aim of the School is to keep traditional roots in place thereby tapping an area left untapped – SHLOKA EDUCATION
- I started off Gurukulam on October 20th 2014 and worked with a few children in my apartment and found out that a lot of parents were keen on sending their children for such classes.
- These classes are for kids between 3-16 years.
- Shlokas are taught only in SANSKRIT (though Sanskrit is a language which children at that age ..i.e 5-9 years is not something they have been exposed to earlier….but I read that when kids as little as 3 are exposed to a variety of information…their grasping capacity is something spectacular…So push all that you can in their little brains and see them gain as much as knowledge as possible is what I believe in)
- I used to do One-on-One classes for kids at their residence during 2014. These classes were actually called the Mother-Baby Duo classes where kids as little as 2 and 3 were exposed to learning shlokas but here the mother used to do more learning than the kids.
So here the mother was more the teacher -Mothers are indeed the best teachers!
- Starting 2016 all our classes are ONLY through SKYPE/Watsapp videos. Gurukulam caters to kids across the globe -India, USA, UK, Canada, Germany, Nerds, UAE, Hongkong, Singapore and India.
- At present Gurukulam has close to 90 kids. Today we are an ONLINE SCHOOL only.
