ABOUT THE BOOK
"Where is your laboratory?" I was asked in 1962 by a person seated next to me on a flight from Delhi to Mumbai, when he learnt during a chat that, I was working with "The Experiment in International Living India". I had then explained to him that our 'laboratory' was a 'family' and what we were 'experimenting' was an exercise in human relations!
The Indian Experiment has come a long way since 1962 to get a recognition as a premier organization in India in the field of "experimental learning" in human relations between people belonging to different cultures, traditions, and value systems. But even to-day it requires to be explained what is The Experiment? What its attempting to do ? and how?
This book is an attempt to answer such questions. It explains the origin, philosophy and concept of The Experiment movement, its unique features, its simple but effective methodology, and its contribution in pointing a way of life which can reduce the psychological barriers between peoples of different cultures. It shows how The Experiment idea traveled to India, how it took roots here in last fifty years, the problems faced, and challenges met.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Mr. Amarish Trivedi, the Chairman of the Indian Experiment has been associated with the Indian Experiment for now more than forty-five years. So close is his identification with The Experiment that it is difficult to say whether he is a part of The Experiment or The Experiment is a part of him.
A student of History, Political Science, Economics and Law, Mr. Trivedi was intimately connected with students unions, discussion groups, social service bodies and sports during his academic career.
As the Secretary General he played a pivotal role as an administrator, planner, and promoter of The Experiment movement in India. He recognized early on that The Experiment methodology could be successfully applied in promoting national integration in India’s multi-racial, multi-religious, and multi-lingual society, and also that The Experiment must develop non-travel educational programmes. The Indian Experiment nurtured and shaped by him has won great respect both at the international as well as National level.
Mr. Trivedi's meritorious services are recognized in form of several awards and tributes. Recently, he is nominated as 'Experiment Ambassador Emeritus' by The Experiment-Federation.
