The 8th of December, 2017 saw us, a bunch of bloggers, educationists and child therapists meet at the Park Hotel, Chennai for a warm discussion on the effects of dictation vs discovery on early learning in children. The meet was organized by Skola Toys where we had the chance to interact with Mridula Sridhar, Co-Founder of Skola Toys. Post the discussion, we took a walk around the display of Skola Toys collection. As a participant blogger, I feel privileged to bring to you the fine points, videos and photographs from the meet.
The Graded Response Action Plan (GRAP) has been put to force in Delhi since October 17th, 2017 and shall continue until February 2018. Governments and agencies can devise methods and give instructions; however, what ultimately can make Delhi a safe city to breathe is, how people understand, respect and respond to GRAP. Here’s an attempt to understand GRAP and the responsibilities that lies with every Delhi-NCRite.
We, as Indians have so much to complain, crib and whine about the Indian politics, Indian Government, Indian politicians, systems, laws…yes, yes and yes, it is a big list! No matter how big and bold the headlines of a good initiative appear on the newspaper, we can with ease spot a crime, an unfair justice, a city disobedience to make us feel unworthy of living in India. Do you think we can change this perspective of Indians about India? Perhaps, we can, and we must!
With the recent World Political maneuvers, House of Cards season five was much awaited as the show intentionally or perhaps, intuitively shadows the real political situation in the US. Does it augur a beginning of another rift between the Underwoods? Does it throw a fortuity on Mrs. Underwood to swear the Presidential robe? Will it drag their feet from working together for the elections? Will the Underwoods win the election? What will happen to Frank’s warmongering appetite? These could be a few of the questions that might pop up instantly in the audiences’ mind #HOConZCafe #HouseofCards #HomecomingofTerror
The thought process that kicked me to write this post today is the ‘virtual perception vs. the actual perception’ I had experienced at the meet. When we interact with the same few people over a period of time through distant modes, our minds begin to form perceptions about those few. At the meet, it was interesting to observe the distinctive differences between my imaginary beings and the real ones.
Starting from tomorrow, please join me in an emotional odyssey of motherhood, for the next thirty days. Beginning from 1st of April until 30th April, there will be one blog post a day on this blog. And all the posts will revolve around motherhood. We all know that a mother is an embodiment of love, an epitome of sacrifice, a this of that and a that of this! Yes, we’ve seen, read and heard all the nicest things about her. However, seldom do we understand the frustrations behind her patience, the playfulness behind her maturity, the sadness behind her joys and so much more hidden emotions of motherhood. As a mother of two, as a stay-at-home-mom and as an ever-learning, ever-evolving mom, I am looking forward to share my A to Z everyday emotional rides, through my blog, in the next thirty days.
I have never witnessed a live performance with this full of life before. The performance was a mix of story-telling, masks and puppet shows, dance performances with live background music throughout the play. The energy and enthusiasm of the artists were remarkable. There was never a time during the show when they paused or took a break. It was all flowing through them – that’s what I felt.
Tata Motors is launching TATA Hexa, a SUV designed for a power-packed, feature-loaded and adrenaline-pumped driving experience – what Tata fondly calls as The Hexa Experience! For the benefit of travel enthusiasts, Tata is organizing Hexa Experience centres in major cities where a simulation of off-road tracks is set. Our good old pal, Indiblogger, gifted…
To people who argue that we must tolerate this inconvenience for a few days for a better India, may I please ask if it’s just to ask a little child to tolerate his hunger for a few days? To me, a country’s wellness is not measured by how many black money hoarders are caught red-handed but how many little children have three meals a day. It hurts more to realize that a so-called reformation has made one child hungry than to feel good that it has brought millions of black money notes to light.
There, India fails! Not just the Government, but citizens too!
