Centre for Fundamental Research and Creative Education (CFRCE)
is an organization dedicated to positive change and self-actualization and is at once a platform for untrammelled Inquiry and Research and a Talent Hotspot espousing Superfast Accelerated Learning in its deepest sense.
CFRCE levels the playing field for individuals and students by empowering them to take active and independent, systemic and systematic charge of their learning and education, inquiry and research, entrepreneurial and financial potential, driven by intrinsic motivation, meaning and purpose, irrespective of extrinsic incentives or patronage.
CFRCE challenges the status quo in standard educational theory and practice -that narrowly classifies individuals as achievers or failures, bright or dull, talented or non-talented -and leverages individual learning to an extraordinary level of deep practice, mastery and creativity. It thrives in making learning a tremendously evocative, exhilarating and ennobling optimal experience or flow. Thereby, learning resolves itself into its natural role as an instinct, implicate order or more precisely, a neuro-cognitive potential that develops and expresses itself by spontaneous self-organization once the hindrances and obstacles to its unfoldment are dissolved, removed or overcome.
In the CFRCE programs earnest students and inquiring individuals at diverse stages starting from primary through high school, undergraduate and postgraduate levels are empowered to step up, rise high beyond the rat race and take years and sometimes even decades, off their learning curve by a unique combination of personal development, domain mastery and professional eminence, and attain world class levels of excellence and achievement.

CFRCE Education is a powerful intellectually elite education based on hands-on-thinking and guided do-it-yourself learning that equips the student to independently master all aspects of learning as a matter of deep practice, domain mastery and culture. It eschews the inadequate formal academic approach that touches on superficial aspects of learning and launches the student directly into the domain and field of a given subject heightening personal creativity to a phenomenal degree.
CFRCE Education goes parallel to formal school/college/university academics and while enhancing, enriching and revitalizing it, provides the intellectually mature student with a keen edge in learning so much necessary for the modern conceptual era in full swing.
CFRCE students take years off their learning curve and begin right during their school and college levels to engage directly in inquiry and research, innovation and entrepreneurship, management and leadership, and the making of meaning.
CFRCE Education is an intellectually elite education aimed exclusively at the exceptionally motivated, driven and passionate student mature to take the road not taken and to walk that extra mile and to boldly go where no student has gone before.
CFRCE Education is active and dynamic. In contrast to passive and static classroom teaching, it engages the student directly in thinking, posing questions and answering them, formulating problems and solving them, and working towards a complete and comprehensive grasp of the subject matter.
CFRCE Education empowers the student to own his/her learning and take complete charge of one's direction of education.
CFRCE Education puts the student into a mode of deep, deliberate or purposeful practice that ignites the talent and genius code of the student towards extraordinary mastery and creativity.
CFRCE Education focusses on domain mastery rather than mere subject learning. It endows the student with an understanding and mastery of the subject-domain as a whole.
CFRCE Education leads the student to connect directly to the practitioners of the domain, the field. The CFRCE student by virtue of domain mastery spontaneously connects to the experts and leaders of the domain and in turn, begins to contribute to the development of the field.
CFRCE Education leverages the student's learning towards a comprehensive grasp of the domain and field of a subject and puts it in the right context for unleashing creativity.
CFRCE Education drives student creativity towards innovation and entrepreneurship. The CFRCE student learns to engage in the cognitive cycle of creativity, -conscious preparation, subconscious incubation, subliminal illumination and conscious verification by means of which idea-priming, perceptive thinking, innovation and enterprise are spontaneously stimulated, nurtured and self-organized.
CFRCE Education is future-paced and is geared towards the modern post-information conceptual era and fosters the development of the whole brain including both the left-brain logical, analytical and critical faculties and the right-brain faculties of design, story, symphony, empathy, play and meaning.
CFRCE Education is more a matter of culture, a way of life rather than mere skill-building, a life-long acquisition than a temporary attainment and anchors the student in enduring, enlightening and ennobling human values.

Kiran Aspari is an extraordinarily accomplished Thinker and Business Entrepreneur.
Kiran Aspari is an extraordinarily accomplished Thinker and Business Entrepreneur. He started out in the year 2012 as a CFRCE Academic Achiever during his 11th grade. Having faced a critical situation in his academics he was on the verge of a nervous crisis. It was in this situation that he came to CFRCE wherein he was mentored through a personal development program via the Academic Achiever's Program.
Kiran soon realized that his inner aspiration was leading him to a deep existential and philosophical quest. He also realized that his earnest urge for freedom and independence could be achieved only by an entrepreneurial pursuit. In the beginning of his 12th grade he independently took a major decision to drop out of formal academics and devote himself exclusively to his philosophical and business pursuits.
In the year 2013 he began to study business entrepreneurship in all seriousness. Within four months he had mastered all the essentials of what constitutes a Master of Business Administration (MBA) program. He established his internet marketing business and began to rapidly rise in his success. In around a year's time, at hardly 18 years he had become accomplished as a millionaire businessman. A year later he and Abhiram another CFRCE student, established a second business, yenom.com. Presently, Kiran is carrying on his entrepreneurial venture in both the businesses and is on his way to establish yet another.
