Mr. Chaitanya Bhatt runs Ka-Shaala in Dhendhuki village near Rajkot in Gujarat. This unique school provides alternative career choices to the children belonging to marginalized families and helps them in identifying their interests and cultivating professions out of them. Kaa-Shala has no books, no teachers, and no exams. Self-learning and self-assessments are encouraged here. While at Kaa-Shala, experience is one's best teacher. Career and life are not two separate things here. He says, “Education should complement life and not complicate it.” The core ideology of Ka-Shaala is to create deep value-based learning.
