Kapil Pandey held a week long anti-war folk song workshop with the young people of Kutumb's Indradhanush programme.  Each day, the children would read the lyrics of a folk song, and try to understand the meaning.  Then, Kapil would lead them in several renditions of the songs. Afterwards, they discussed the song's possible meanings together. On the final day of the workshop, the children sang the songs unassisted. Songs covered include Bob Dylan's Blowin' in the Wind, Ed McCurdy's Last Night I Had the Strangest Dream and Pete Seeger's Where Have All the Flowers Gone? 
The Ghevra Extension Learning Centre continues to hold computer classes.  We currently have three batches (Afternoon, Evening and Night) and thirty total participants.  80% of our students are girl-children.  We have also started holding Basic and Intermediate English classes at the Resource Centre, utilizing our own experiential curriculum. 
Many of Kutumb's students are interested in dance.  Our peer leaders, as well as dedicated volunteers, conduct twice weekly sessions focusing on contemporary styles such as B-Boying, as well as traditional styles such as Kuchipudi. 

Some of Kutumb's dancers have been selected for a scholarship to attend weekly classes at Stand Dance Studios in Jangpura where they will learn gymnastics, ballet, Indian classical and Western classical dance. 
A peer teacher capacity building workshop was held at Indradhanush.  Each peer leader had to read the folktale, The Eighth Donkey, and subsequently put together a creative performance of the story.  This served as a springboard for a meaningful conversation about storytelling and the role it plays in Indradhanush's alternative education framework.
