This book studies the innovative methods of learning used in some alternative Indian schools. It sheds light on places of learning where the learning process is fun for the teacher as well as the students, in contrast to the intense examination-oriented learning in mainstream schools.

Researched data on alternative schools in the country, offers the reader an array of institutions all over the country where efforts are being made to bring about a difference to traditional ways of learning and teaching. It includes exclusive articles by leading practitioners who offer an insight into ground reality when a certain philosophy is applied to a school. It also contains accounts based on the experience of how such alternative practices mould the learner and teacher, and impact the parent as well.

In the latter part of the book is a directory of alternative schools in India. Most are tucked away in remote corners of the country. Interestingly, the common thread binding these 'alternative schools' is the welfare of the child in addition to that of the teachers, who love their work as opposed to merely doing a job.
