What is Sochu?
ENTERTAINMENT IS FOOD FOR THE SOUL.
To ensure that our children are treated to wholesome entertainment, we introduce Sochu, a seven-year-old who solves his problems by thinking.
If there is one gift that we would want to give our children, it would be the ability to have their own thoughts! Sochu is our little attempt at helping children find this quality within themselves and celebrate it. We have tried to bring this idea to life in a language that appeals to the vibrant children of today.
Sochu is designed to create bonding experiences between children and adults. Read these books together with your children to initiate some wonderful conversations!
Through Sochu, we wish to inculcate the idea that: Thinking is for EVERYONE and thinking can be a lot of FUN!
Sochu is a series of children's books and a TV series that celebrates the process of thinking! Through Sochu, Chetan aims to spark the imaginations of children and provide the kind of entertainment that can open them up to newer perspectives, help them deal with varied pressures and be exposed to the many diversities in the society.
Sochu embodies 21st century skills like collaboration, non-violent communication, creative thinking, problem solving, gender equality, empathy, kindness, experiential learning and many more… All this without losing out on the entertainment quotient!
"We believe that Sochu is truly Chaplinesque!"
In 2018, Chetan stumbled upon Experiential Education, a teaching philosophy in which educators purposefully engage with learners in direct experience and focused reflection. With this new tool of EE, he sourced, curated and created activities at the back of each book, that can help children and parents extend the experience of Sochu into their own lives. Chetan continues to weave the many methodologies of EE in everything that he does, even today! Initially he released two books of Sochu to test the market. After getting a lot of encouragement and applause, he set out to create the pilot episode and a more substantial Box Set with 12 books! Chetan is currently pitching the pilot episode of Sochu as a TV Series to all the TV channels and OTT platforms in India. Apart from Sochu, Chetan is also developing multiple other projects that he will bring to market in the coming years.
