Ek, do, teen

By Vidya Pradhan
“Uh se akhbaar, aah se aam”, chant a group of kids in a classroom in Forest Park Elementary school in the Indian-heavy Ardenwood district of Fremont. Led by patient teacher Chitra Jayaraman, the kids are attempting to reestablish roots that have been diluted by exposure to an all-English environment.

The after school Hindi program is run by the US Hindi Association (USHA), the brainchild of Prerana Vaidya and Ruchita Parat.
