The Art of Rational Thinking (ART) Course

All of us have read the Panchtantra stories when we were children. Do you know why these stories were written?

There was once a king, Amarashakti, who had three sons who were unworthy of succeeding him. The King decided to invite a highly learned person, Pandit Vishnu Sharma, to come and teach his sons. When this teacher started teaching the princes he realized that conventional teaching methods will not work as he was not able to get the attention of his students. It is then he created various interesting stories, whereby he was not only able to command the interest of his three students, but also teach them all that he wanted. Thus, using these stories as educational tools Pandit Sharma was able to get the young princes ready to fulfill their duties and responsibilities of managing their kingdom. We decided to follows Pandit Vishnu Sharma’s “story-led-education” technique and created this Art of Rational Thinking (ART) course.

The ART course uses time tested stories (Akbar-Birbal, Jataka, Panchtantra, Mahabharat, etc.), as an educational tool to introduce the key ingredients of empathetic rational thinking in a fun filled engaging manner.
