Comments from the Teachers

Handle with Care was a very good workshop. Concepts of multiple intelligence was taught in a very interesting and practical way. Your activities and examples were too good.

Aswini

Attending Handle With Care gave me a good time as I learned things relevant to real life.  I liked the programme very much as it was very lively.

Kavita

Very effective.

Anita Nair

Very precise and straightforward talk. You are a very intelligent person who believe in doing rather than speaking.

Sunita Joshi

The session was so informative and thought provoking. Understanding personalities through multiple intelligence will be very useful for teachers. More practical based and case studies would have given clear picture about various intelligences.

The seminar which we had made a big change in my perspectives about the way I should see the world. It was really bringing out and challenging our hidden talents through multiple intelligence. Rather than taking short-cuts, I will try to find out new and various ways of solving my problems
