Pooja Bedi Is Passionate About Holistic Education
Pooja Bedi believes in the popular saying by Alvin Toffer- “The Illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read or write but those who cannot learn, unlearn and relearn.” As a believer of Holistic Education, the formal format of Indian education system needs a transformation. In preparing children for the future, we often rob them of their childhood, wherein children should be allowed to express their individuality and to indulge in their passion.
