Arvind Gupta, the man who showed that a cycle tube can be used to teach how pumps work, who used straws to teach centrifugal force, and taught geometrical structures using nothing but a rubber tube and a few matchsticks… is silently carrying out a revolution in education through his ‘toys from trash’. He has shown that Science can be made exciting using almost any object under the sun.
Arvind translates with passion books from English to Hindi. For, as a person from Uttar Pradesh, he is “deeply aware of poverty of material in Hindi.” He has so far done 155 translations and has uploaded them on his website. He has written 23 books so far. Arvind believes in sharing. “Life is short. We must make it beautiful. We aren’t going to take anything when we go, are we?”.
Do you have any old household items you can recycle into some Christmas toys maybe?
