Every time I call my Uber/Ola driver I pray that they understand English or Hindi. And soon enough I realised the importance of local language. I was not alone, all of my fellows at UFP felt the same. And Vikrant came to our rescue.
Vikrant leads the Media and Design team and is responsible for design and development of the IIHS brand. The first class happened and we moved beyond, “Kannada Gotila” meaning – “I don’t know Kannada”. And now it is, “Kannada Kalita Ideeni” meaning – “I’m learning Kannada”.
Vikrant taught us some words of daily use and how to make sentences using those few words.
Kannada class is open to all departments in IIHS and it soon became the most famous class. We had some 9 classes so far, though I’ve been able to attend only 4 of them.
Sharing few photos from the first class.
Vikrant – the teacher
Apoorva – the ganpati
Jayati – she’s cool like that
Geetika – She translated a sentence to Kannada, hence the happiness
Kapil, Aman & Sakhi – understanding or trying to understand, perhaps.
Gautam too attends this class. Can you believe this. I still can’t.
Chandni – we don’t see her much around until its kannada class.
Her name is Kavina and she’s not a poet.
Simran is a diligent student of this class.
Arshiya being her here.
Haifa attends every class with her phone in her hand. God knows what does she do there.
Shriya entered the classroom right when Vikrant ended the session. Honestly, this is one of my favourite photo from IIHS. Gautam and Shriya ❤
Pushkal – yes, he smiles too people.
Anushya is a photographer and she doesn’t like me much because of my habit of taking her photos. Well, that’s how photographers are, no?
