LOVEDALE READER'S CLUB

The author of the book 
LOVEDALE ~ Married to Life© Nozzer Pardiwala, 
believes that... The world not only needs great writers but also great readers!

Taking that thought forward we introduced a dedicated segment on our youtube channel where readers of the book LOVEDALE~Married to Life©  share their views about the book, the author's unique style of writing and the changes the education system needs to look into.

We interviewed 



STUDENT Miss Pushti Shah




TEACHER  Mrs. Dhun Patel 


Homeschooling Parents Mr. & Mrs. Mathew Peedikayil

















The responses were simply amazing. We introduce here a BLOG INTERVIEW for Lovedale Reader's Club
with another Homeschooling Parent Ranjeeta Kulshrestha.



~
Who is your favorite character?


My favorite character in the book is Samaira. 
I feel so connected to her. She learns from nature and believes in angels. She gains her knowledge from nature and from real life experiences... her love for all beings amazes me.


The first impression of a book on a reader's mind is the cover. What is your interpretation of the Cover


The big arch with Lovedale written on it... left me awestruck!!! The color green and yellow envelops you in a warm feeling. Green related to life energy and yellow with faith and bliss. Cover shows that the house Lovedale is more or less like a school, it's mirror-image. It seems so... it is home plus school...homeschool.


Where there any wow moments in the book? Moments when you are filled with awe, surprise or nostalgia. 


There are so many. The way author describes Lovedale... little things like dried leaves, the bushes. For me, the wow moment is that they don't have a clock in Lovedale.


Which character you could associate to?

Samaira, Of Course! I, too, love nature like she does. I too love treating people with the help of nature. In fact, I associate a little with everyone... like Shimayan I am fascinated with the subject of psychology. Like Seista, I too love and take care of my family and I want to write like Dadda.


Who do you think is the fifth one in the fivesome? 

I think its the Reader. One who is reading the book


As a parent,  what did you relate to in the book? 

As a parent, I relate so much with this book. How children struggle in the school and as a parent we are running a blind race. We want something like Lovedale but do not dare to. But I m happy I chose homeschooling... I relate with homeschooling journey very much .  

What do you think other readers should expect out of the book?

Other readers would know about the option of homescooling and truth of schools...as some parents and children experience it...the disillusionment it creates and the freedom that homeschooling as an option might open up ...


Would you have liked to be a homeschooling child yourself?

Yes! I homeschool my kids and am glad that I opted for it.


Being a city dweller would you have liked to move to a place like Lovedale? 


Surely, Yes! I very much would love to move to a place like Lovedale. I want to be amidst nature.



The author has said in one of his interviews that this book is his way of reaching to policy makers. In your opinion, Should homeschoolers make themselves known like this or shy away from being known? 


I must say, the author has done the right thing. Why to shy away? We must tell the world that yes we can learn without school...Homeschooling is a way away from the system that is not upgrading itself with changing times...it is not against learning...gathering skills or information..only a different avenue of exploring and self learning.


What is one question you would want to ask to the current  education system?

I want to ask how can they tell that this child is intelligent  and the other is not...just on the basis of marks. I don't think so knowledge can be equated with marks.
