Leewardists Urban Travelogue Bundle – South Korea, India, Bangladesh

All books are a product of ’15 days’ of documentation of occupations in Mokpo, South Korea, Chitpur Road, Kolkata, India and Puran Dhaka, Dhaka, Bangladesh with a team of students from colleges in India, France, Bangladesh and South Korea. These travelogues are written and sketched by Anuj Kale and Shreya Khandekar, who are both architects and comic artists. They travel around these cities and through their experiences in the urban territories, they narrate their understanding of the territories, their interaction with them and the people.

With this attempt, we are trying to introduce a new dimension to travelogues – a form of urban travel writing that talks about urbanity and different built environments in a simple and engaging format.

These travelogues have been made in collaboration with many organizations, fellow architects, mentors, professors and students we met during the Indo-French, Indo-Korea and Indo-Bangla-French Workshops. These collaborations are a wonderful means of not only knowledge exchange but also learning from different cultures and people around the world.

The two slots are kept keeping in mind the different time zones. The dates and timings mentioned are subjective to Indian Standard Time. The dates may change due to the differing time zones. Please check the dates and timings relative to your time zone.

(For eg; 11 AM in India- 12:30 AM in New York, 07 PM in India – 09:30 AM in New York)

Do I need a good internet connection to attend the course?

You do need a decent connection to stay online. However, most of the session are conducted using power point presentations and I Pad sessions which requires only a fairly decent connection.

Can I switch from one session to the other?

Yes, you can switch before the sessions go live. However once a subjective timing is attended by a participant, the slot cannot be changed after that.

Can I cancel my purchase after buying the course?

You cannot cancel the purchase, however you can transfer the course to a friend/colleague.

Can I transfer the course to a friend if I don’t want to continue with the course?

Yes you can transfer the course before the course goes live. In this case, one has to provide valid details of the other participant for us to verify.

What if I buy courses for two from one account?

You can buy as many courses from one payable account. All you have to do is provide emails and other necessary details of the other participants for us to verify. Then sit together and enjoy or participate from separate systems, is completely your choice!

How do I use Zoom?

Complete details of how to use the Zoom software is shared via a video upon registration, which will be a part of your introduction lesson. Apart from that, upon registering for the session, Zoom will send you links to download an app suitable for your preferred choice of device as well as instructions to use the software.

When does the session go live and when do I log in?

We strongly recommend joining the session 15 mins prior to the given timings to avail perks like interaction with the tutor, listening to some awkward jokes and watching our comic making process.

I cannot find my zoom link for logging in to the course.

Upon registration, you receive a confirmation mail from Zoom itself which contains the joining link which is unique to each participant. These mails usually go to your updates tab of the inbox section.

I did not receive any mails regarding further registration?

Sometimes patience is the key and sometimes systems go berserk. If it’s the first case, be patient and search your updates tab/spam folder for mails under ‘ZOOM’. If it’s the second, drop us a query at leewardistswebinars@gmail.com

  1. Somya Garg (verified owner)

    My first ever course at the leewardists school, and the best one yet. The course was extremely insightful. You get to learn about yourself from a whole a new perspective. I came across things which I do not think I would have come up on my own. The host is warm and funny. If you do not want to pursue architecture and are feeling lost, trust me, this is a course for you.
    I look forward to being a part of many more courses to come.

  2. Ruchika Deshpande (verified owner)

    The first ever course with leewardists, and a truly fun filled learning experience..how easily have you put up life’s harsh truths in the gaming mode! This has helped us understand better and changed our ways of thinking….clearly! Thanks a lot for the awesome sharing of views, of experiences , of reality…Looking forward to many more discussions!

  3. adarsha kakade (verified owner)

    This Crash course was extremely useful for me to get to know more fields and career options related to my interests and passion. Of course it’s a broad topic and can’t be covered in two sessions but Anuj Sir has completed most of it in this Crash course. More topics like these and future courses from leewardists school are something one should look forward to. The team and their opinions and games made the session lively and interesting.

  4. Jinnie Saren (verified owner)

    This was my first ever course at the Leewardists School. And the best live session that I’ve ever attended for sure! I loved their teaching approach which is truly engaging and interesting. It’s a brilliantly designed course which is very simplified for our understanding. It’s the kind of teaching that is missing from our lives! It kind of reinforced our viewpoints with solid reasoning and even if you are clueless you will get a direction. It has definitely helped me with my decision-making skills and overall perspective towards looking at things. It was enlightening on a lot of aspects!
    It’s a super fun interactive course and definitely NOT the one to miss!
    The interaction and insights from Anuj Sir were awesome and useful!
    I look forward to their upcoming courses and learning more.
