To be a for-profit or non-profit

October 11, 2007

We debated and talked to many people about the ‘business model’ we wanted to adopt.  In the end it was a question of alignment with our audience and the segments we want to serve and work with.  These are schools, museums, teachers, parents, writers.  Then there is the question of the sensibility that being a non-profit brings to the work we want to accomplish.  There is certainly a higher mission that we aspire to.  And being a non-profit allows us to pursue it unapologetically.

Learning Hindi

October 4, 2007

Someone I know looked at the website of the Teach India Project and said dismissively, “There’s nothing for me here.”  I asked him what he was looking for.  “I want to teach my grandson Hindi and you don’t teach an Indian language.  I want to show him that banana is ‘kela’ and an elephant is a ‘hathi’.”  I sent him my copy of the Incredibles dubbed in Hindi.  I wonder if he will watch it with his grandson.
