Board exams in India are done, how to engage the kids?

Central board exams (ICSE, CBSE) have recently concluded. Kids have a good 3-4 months before their XIth grade starts. The question most parents have is “How do we keep our kid(s) gainfully occupied during this long gap?”

Many years ago I had written about how students in US were exposed to government’s day to day operations. Not sure how many politicians in India are open to have students workings in their offices. It would be wrong to say every politician is corrupt but I guess most of them are. We would not want our kids to be exposed to the workings of 2G spectrum & other scams.

Making them to work in a software company is very ‘stereotype’. Helping the needy though an NGO seems to be ideal.

Would love to hear from others for some cool ideas for our kids.
