India is a land of ‘Unity in Diversity’. Owing to its rich culture and heritage, the country has a lot of anecdotes attributed to it. The idea of the course is to acquaint participants with its varied culture and the nuances associated with it.

The objective of the course is to make participants more conciliatory and open to learn from inter-culture and imbibe in their lives the best from it. Alongside, it will aid to sharpen the observing skills, critical thinking and analytical writing. 

Storytelling as a medium to engage participants. Each class will be conducted on one of the topics mentioned below. Each topic will talk about the built-environment of a particular region. The idea behind choosing built-environment is-
1. Built-environment represents the cultural phenomenon of the respective region viz climate, living style, food, festival etc 
2. Easy for participants to relate and compare it with their own built space.
