The last few days have been really exciting for all of us at Akshara.
The first batch of our Ganitha Kalika Andolana kits, 702 of them to be precise, were successfully shipped and delivered.
Every success story comes with its share of funny anecdotes and drama.
So does ours, starting with the clouds opening up and showering us, to the mail van getting lost to finally getting stuck under a few branches.
Finally the bright red van found us. How? Well, they were passing by a place with white and blue boxes spilling out, and screeched to a halt.
Set back by a couple of hours, we got to work. A loading line as efficient as ours took just under an hour to load all boxes in.
Our enthusiasm and excitement even got to the friendly folks from the post office. So much so that the officer-in-charge joined our well-oiled belt of hands as well.
And there we were, just over an hour later, closing the doors with one resounding bolt. And off they were, all 702 kits of the #GKAMathMovement, ready to spread the joy of Math to children.
The kits have reached their destinations and will be distributed to the schools soon.
