Peace is something that cannot be obtained from you it is something the whole universe should fall upon. Peace is nothing about meditation or doing nothing, but peace according to me can be best described as a universal term that actually describes a blank space with no violence, clashes, condemnation or annihilation. This doesn’t mean that humans or the whole universe must be destroyed but it is a state where there will be no wars, blasts, killing or any disastrous chain of events. Imagine a …(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)
Computers are the most useful gadgets in today’s world. Have you ever wondered that if you set time in the computer and power it off, and remove the plug and again power it on after a day, even then it shows correct time and date. This is because in the mother board there is a small lithium button cell which powers the date and time system when the computer is off, and it charges up when the computer is on. This fact is known by very few people, and majorly known only by the computer engineers.

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)
Daisies are not flowers. Neither are Dandelions, Thistles, Marigolds, Sunflowers, Dahlias and a whole host of other well-known plants with the archetypal ‘flower’ structure, as illustrated here with a glorious paint job by yours truly.
No, my friends, I am sorry to have to break it to you that these delightful little chappies, many of them in the Asteraceae, are not, in fact, flowers. No, they are inflorescences….(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)
