On 7 March 2017 The Guardian reported:
A Maharashtra village is giving women denied childhood education a chance to finally catch up on schooling, in a country where female illiteracy is high. Aged 65, Gangubai is learning to read for the first time. She is one of 28 women in the village of Phangne in Maharashtra, western India, who have started attending the aajibaichi shala, the 'school for grandmothers'. Every day, between 2pm and 4pm, the aajis, or grandmothers, of Phangne meet in a colourful bamboo hut, uniformed in pink saris and holding schoolbags. For the aajis, the school is a last chance to learn to read and write. 'I go to school with joy,' says Gangubai.
