Two of Pune’s schools take us into the world of India’s ‘rising generation’. The series gets inside the skin of India’s middle classes, exploring their dreams and anxieties in a world that seems to be changing every day.

Indian Schoolfocuses on the lives of pupils and teachers in two very different private schools:

Kalmadi Shamrao High School concentrates on academic results and core moral values.

Rewachand Bhojwani Academy is a liberal institution, with an unorthodox curriculum and a place for meditation.
