Its been two weeks and I couldn’t share much other than posting few photos on facebook or twitter.

We were introduced to practica. All we knew about practica was this, “Practica are term-length, site-based, applied learning courses. They draw on real-life cases and working problems that are situated in the city. Fellows will be provided with a problem situation (together with extensive written and audio-visual information) regarding a city or a particular site in Bangalore. Working in teams as well as individually, the Practica will help Fellows apply principles of integrating theory, practice and link skills and concepts learnt in the classroom to develop solutions. In doing so, they will develop problem-solving skills as well as capacity to create innovative & sustainable solutions that will help them translate knowledge into application and then impact, in the Indian context. The Practica will also allow participants to interact with and be evaluated by critical stakeholders in the city – like government officials, entrepreneurs and civil society organizations”.

This is what we’ve read on the urban fellowship programme website. We were told about our sites in Bangalore. 10 teams were formed of 3 fellows each. We proceeded to our sites – Sultanpalya & Malleswaram. 5 teams were to work in Sultanpalya and 5 teams in Malleswaram. What we did and what we were suppose to do, I’ll write about that next time, probably.

Sharing some of the photos from Malleswaram. The team I was part of was suppose to work in Malleswaram.
