The Gurukul stresses an austere life style. The food is simple-few spices, very little salt, and purely vegetarian-and is served in the traditional Indian way on the floor. After eating, the children wash their own utensils. Their hostels, simple mud houses with tiled roofs have a rustic charm about them and other minimal comforts. Each cottage has two rooms, each room has three stone slabs for bed. The place got an electricity connection only recently and in another concession to modernity and anxious parents-a satellite phone. Facilities and education come for free. The Gurukul sustains itself on donations or by holding stresss management and meditation camps for professionals from nearby towns and elsewhere. The day at the Gurukul begins at dawn with Yoga, After a cold bath, the children wash their own clothes. Then, breakfast over, the students disperse for structural classes or informal one to one sessions which are really tutorials. Life is tough for the children at the Gurukul because they learn both Vedic and regular lessons, a combination of science and philosophy. But the minglong of the modern and the traditional seems to be working fine for children. They not only learn their lessons but also learn to understand themselves.
