Besant Arundale school experience
ஆஹா! சாம்பார் சாதம்!! – From Pranav Athimuthu, a NINTH GRADER FROM ALPHARETTA. GEORGIA, on his current TNF internship experience in a Chennai school: “Sharing snacks is customary in the US, but it was unique to see the students sharing parts of their own lunch. Items such as spicy chutney and beetroot with sambar rice were in high demand, and the students that had these high-value goods were eager to share with fellow students, placing some on the lids of their tiffin boxes and sliding them across to their friends.”
