About

‘Siragugal’  is a Tamil word that means wings.

Siragugal ‘ is a Society rooted in Ootacamund, the Queen of the Western Ghats in South India. We seek to give wings to the children who live around us. We wish to  empower them so they can shake off  the things that may tie them down – sex, age, poverty, social status, cultural background – and soar higher and higher  as the poet Bharathi said.

We have created a library for children to have free access to books and knowledge. In this space, they read, play  games and are exposed to different kinds of activities. We hold classes  where teaching is done in non conventional methods. The children get to meet people from all walks of life. The total experience , we hope, will enrich their lives .

This blog is a record of the steps of our Society as we travel , doing things , making mistakes, learning, and generally moving forward in the direction planned.
