I am thinking of homeschooling my son in Mumbai. I got interested in the homeschooling / alternative education / unschooling concepts around mid 2010.
This is what the blog is about. I put up what I learn. I intend document my journey as my son grows older. Hence the name of my blog – “An Education called Life”
