A unique experiment of the School: Study on the sea-coast

    At the Onjal village of Navsari District(State Gujarat, India), a new style of teaching the students are going on for many years. Many students completed their education and now they have good employment.

    The majority of the villagers are fishermen, and as they are settled near the sea. They believes that the sea is like a mother or father for them.  Their kids go to the sea beach and use the sand surface as a notebook to write and practice to remember the lesson. This practice enhances their memory power and they become the brilliant students and acquires the marvelous result in the examination and gets a higher rank.

    Here several girls could be seen holding thorns in their hands and writing something on the sand. This is just a unique way of studying. The girls of this village are presenting an example in the country by adopting the method of studying without a blackboard, chalk, pen, or notebook, just a book in hand, and walking in the wet sand on the beach. Not just that but these girls are providing the meaning to the slogan of our PM Narendra Modi: Padhega India Badhega India. These girls students say that walking and Studying in a clean airy beach environment is fun for study as well as staying healthy.

Because of the practice of memorizing, reading, and writing by using a thorn as a stylus to write on the sand of the beach, girls can write easily in the examination. Students of this village prepare for an examination with this method for many years. They are making the village famous. The population of Onjal village in 2020-21 is approximately 8000. The majority of people in this village are involved in the fishing business. The people in this village are alert and favor the education of girls. They are very kindful, active in cultural, religious activities. All parents of this village prefer this method for their children. Many students have got government jobs, and many of them are self-employed. This method saves paper by not using a notebook and thus helps reduce global warming.

The Opinion by the Girl Students:

  • A student name Shreya Tandel (a standard 10 student) said that studying in this way saves the note-pen. Reading is also easily remembered and practicing writing on sea sand makes it easier to write in the examination. My parents had studied in a similar way. Most of the people in the village have studied in this wpay and have reached good and government jobs today.
  • "We study with all the sisters in this way for 2-3 hours a day," said Rose Tandel (a standard 6 student). If we get bored, we start playing. Then we re-read and write on the sand and practice. Reading in this way makes it easier to write an exam paper. Almost all the students in the village study in this way. This advice from our parents has proved to be very beneficial to us. Reading while walking and then writing on the sand seems to be pleasurable studying.
  • Sakshi Tandel (a 7th standard student) said, "I love practicing here to walk and study and writing on the sand. I have been studying on the sea beach like this just 2-3 months before the examination. After adopting this method, I can remember my lesson easily, and writing on the sand makes it easier to write in examinations. This method given by my family is like a gift from God to me.
  • Deepika Tandel (Std-10 student) said, "For the last 3 years, I have been doing 'Walk with Study' on the beach like this. This method was given to me by my parents. Studying in a clean environment makes reading easier to remember. We then prepare for the exam by practicing writing on the sea sand with a fork or pencil. Gandhiji also liked to 'Walk and Read' on the sea beach like this. We are happy that your parents' advised us of this method, and we are studying like this.

 An opinion by the former student and a lecturer in Daman College, Gujarat.

    Arun Tandel (Lecturer, Daman College) said that I was born in this village. I have completed my education in 'Grammatical Method' by this method: Just walking on the wet sand while reading. Today I am a lecturer at Daman College.
    All I have to say is that this method has proved to be very effective. It's wonderful to experience reading the books while walking on the wet sand. This is a good method of education, and it is a pleasure to see students studying like this. I think these kids will be learning a lot by carving on the sand.
