Abstract/Notes: Some even came from Bengal province, a 3-day train journey! I was staying in the home of a dedicated Montessori teacher trainer, Uma Shankar, in cozy, warm family surroundings. Or while in Ahmedabad, I was able to arrange a meeting with Leenaben Sarabhai, an aunt of a friend and a Montessori pioneer in Gujarat (see page 46). In addition to their words, my interview subjects also shared with me original handwritten manuals and materials, photographs, Maria's drawings and outlines of Elementary curriculum and materials, and her correspondence with various people, including Gandhi, Tagore, Krishnamurti, Joosten, and the Arundales. The Arundales promptly extended an invitation, and Mario and Maria Montessori arrived in India in 1939 to conduct the first training course on the Asian continent. [...]began Montessori's extended stay in India. Some of the original lecture notes from teacher training that Maria Montessori gave in Ahmedabad, as well as Montessori's letters, original transcripts, and hand-drawn illustrations and materials, are preserved in a museum at the Shreyas School in Ahmedabad.
