Intelligence is not dominated by a single general ability, as Howard Gardner suggested in his theory of multiple intelligence. Intelligence is a group of eight abilities, namely, musical–rhythmic, visual–spatial, verbal–linguistic, logical–mathematical, bodily–kinesthetic, interpersonal, intrapersonal, and naturalistic. Later on existential and moral intelligence were also considered for inclusion into this bunch. Each individual possesses a unique blend of all these intelligences. Gardner firmly maintains that his theory of multiple intelligences should “empower learners”, not restrict them to one modality of learning. Schools are often fails to cater all these.

uraan conducts workshops and camps for the children, catering to the development of multiple intelligence of a child through group/collaborative work with theatre, art, creative thinking, nature, rhythm and music, creative writing etc.
We also help educators to capacitate them to tackle and ignite multiple intelligence of a child.
