In March, I had the opportunity to have dinner with Medha Patkar, land rights activist in India. My experience of meeting Medha and talking to her about indigenous education reminded me to continue questioning the status quo definition of progress and efficiency, especially when it comes to education.

Because of my immediate fascination with her and her inspiring struggle, I accompanied my friend and ICA Institute colleague, Viren Mayani, to his interview with her the next day. The following link provides excerpts from Viren’s interview.
