A School for Santals.

Wife Kirsti, former British teacher and her husband Rahul, Indian philosopher, started a school for the young children of their community in Santinekatan. The school is primarily made up of the neighboring Santal population. Santals are the largest tribal community in India, found mostly in West Bengal, Bihar, Jharkhand, Assam and Orissa.
*Think Santals treated in India how Native American's are treated in America.
