Thiruvananthapuram (Kerala): Former ISRO scientist Nambi Narayanan is donning a new role. He has become a mentor of a Montessori School run by his daughter.

The school was started by his daughter Geetha in Pongummood area of Thiruvananthapuram.

To forget his haunting memories when the former ISRO scientist was arrested under false espionage charges in 1994, he took up the new role of caretaker and friend of children at Nana's Montessori Pre School.

The former ISRO scientist and aerospace engineer is also popularly known as Nana. He visits school twice a week to mingle with children. No one is born Einstein, their talent should be recognised and then nurtured, Narayanan had once said. Nana's Montessori Preschool nurturing the budding talents in the age group of three to six years has been working on this principle. Montessori School helps in promoting informal learning methods as well as honing children's abilities beyond the traditional method. The Montessori School concept was developed by the Italian Maria Montessori.

Speaking about the project, Nambi Narayanan's daughter Geeta said, "I hope that my father's new role in nurturing budding talents will bring back a smile on his face. My father's friends are also rendering full support to his endeavour. My father proved his innocence after fighting a long-drawn legal battle in the fake espionage case. He now wants to impart the knowledge and experiences he gained to the new generation. "We are also planning to start an old age home with all the amenities for the poor and elderly persons," she added.
