It’s that time of the year when students are wrapping-up the last minute of textbook information and teachers are wrapping-up all their memories associated with the Batch. Difficult as it may seem for both, but remember all the values and lifeskills you have been nurtured with to make you sail smooth on the journey of life.
Every teacher was once a student and every student is a learner. We all evolve as mature, complex humans by learning,unlearning and re learning in our life. We all make mistakes.So it’s ok. Chillax.
Forget the mistakes of the past and strive towards a new beginning. It’s new year. Go ahead and make a new year resolution. And yes, dont wait for the next year to make another resolution.
Make someone smile every day, touch a heart by your gesture, help the elderly and whatever you do, do your job well. By the end of the day, if you feel that you have tried your level best, it is a day well spent….(Read More)
You can’t change the number of hours in a day, but you can fill them more efficiently, with less stress and mental effort. You’ve likely heard this before, and perhaps your past efforts at time management have been, well, a waste of time. But most people’s attempts to increase productivity get derailed by two virtues of modern living: technology and options. Today’s onslaught of tech — smartphones, iPads, search engines, social media — is fragmenting our attention spans, gumming our mental gears with useless facts, and turning us into surface-level thinkers. At the same time, all the communication choices we have today — email, IM (Instant messaging), Skype or Gmail chat — are thwarting …(Read More)

Butterflies, flutteryflies, one of the most common attractions for kids. We cannot describe the happiness on the children’s face when they see the natural beauty fluttering around them. Hence to expose the natural beauty to the students, we arranged a field trip for the students of standard three and four to the Rotary Butterfly Garden at Dombivli and Ovalekarwadi Butterfly Garden at Thane. School teachers showed their enthusiasm and joined the students in this trip of nature, ready to trail the path of these jewelled creatures….(Read More)

This was the topic of a panel discussion in a conference attended by me last week. What is Alternative Education? Any pedagogical approach which is different from the mainstream pedagogy can be called as the alternative education. Home Schooling is one of the examples of alternative education.
It is very popular in the countries like USA, UK and New Zealand. The question emerged in my mind was that why do we need Alternative Education? Can’t we have an appropriate blend of the conventional and alternative pedagogies in our schools?…(Read More)
To be in the children’s memories tomorrow, you have to be in their lives today- Barbara Johnson
In today’s era we all have expectations for our children. We are all toiling for their future… Maybe we forget giving time is also needed for their holistic development. In my experience, children always behave the way they do for a good reason. Sometimes we can’t figure out that so we simply blame the child. That seems to be the easy way out. This doesn’t mean to say that the child shouldn’t be held accountable for his / her actions or behaviour.The child might be acting out to hide or overcome a bad experience. As a counselor the solutions are found when the puzzle is unraveled……(Read More)
It’s another Sunday, the day of fun for everyone, late morning wakeup, tasty breakfast, watching favourite TV shows, visiting malls and many more…… As a birder and naturalist I decided to wake up early (even earlier than usual that I wake up for my work) and go to Padle village for a heart storming session of the habitat of Baya Weaver bird, but I couldn’t resist myself to go to BPS (Bhandup Pumping Station) though I knew I will be missing Baya Weaver session for the photos of flamingos since I was eagerly waiting for a decent shot of flamingo since last two years….(Read More)
