Madanpur Khadar

We spent the day at Madanpur Khadar, a school on the outskirts of Delhi situated in a slum area.  We met the staff and pupils, finding out how they teach the children. We were made to feel very welcome and were again greeted with a garland of marigolds and a card the children had made. The children had an assembly to start the day and did some light exercise in rows.  They stood to attention until they were dismissed to class. We observed some of the teachers and taught two classes.  

In the afternoon we visited Humayun’s tomb, a smaller version of the Taj Mahal built out of red sandstone. In the evening we went to Dilly Haat, a market situated near our hotel.
