In Khelo Rugby, we often use charchas to take time out to discuss issues with children in their community. Charcha is the Hindi word for discussion.

For Khelo Rugby this can be a freewheeling conversation where everyone shares their ideas or a more structured discussion where we are trying to explain a particular point or concept. Charchas are normally led by Young Leaders but it is also a good experience for a young player to lead a charcha.

Charcha can take place informally in the field or be a more deliberate activity in a classroom setting. The rules around charcha are very simple, we all give respect to the person leading the discussion and everybody can contribute and should always feel a part of the process.

Many of our best initiatives and learnings come through charcha and they play a powerful role in Khelo Rugby.
