Memories of Maria
A photograph published in MetroPlus results in the coming together of nine surviving students of Italian educationist Maria Montessori for a unique reunion after seven decades.
It's a hot, sunny afternoon, and a group of elderly gentlemen and women sits patiently under the trees at Kalakshetra Foundation, waiting for the event to begin.
It seems like any ordinary meeting, except it's not — it's a reunion of a most remarkable sort.
These nine men and women are the surviving students of the great Italian educationist Maria Montessori herself, and they've come together for a reunion — for the first time — nearly 70 years after they were classmates in her schoolroom.
