Last week Ramkesh came to Noida to visit our Open School kids. Arun did an interview with him.
On Saturday 21st September I interviewed Ramkesh Adiwashi. Ramkesh lives in my village, Janwaar, in Madhya Pradesh. He was with me when I made a skateboarding tour in Europe. He is a good skateboarder. He came for a visit to Prakriti School, and stayed with us for one week in Noida. He attended classes with me. Ramkesh goes to school in Janwaar, where he is in 6th grade. I’ve added a few things in the text, which are not in the video recording, because when the recording was finished, Ramkesh told me some interesting details!
