“If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use in reading it at all.”― Oscar Wilde

The life of a young child is exciting. There is much to learn and explore, a whole world to discover. While the outside environment is stimulating by itself, the one thing that can transfer a child to another world is a book. Books are gateways to adventure, adventure that can be accessed from the coziness of your bedside, the rickety bus ride or a sleepy library.

Reading habits are not Booksformed naturally in children. To form a reading habit requires an effort by the parents and the schooling environment. Children will be naturally drawn to the resources easily available to them. Sadly, nowadays, the most easily available resources are computers, smartphones and televisions that are more attractive children due to their audio-visual entertainment system, while books seem blander by comparison. But books stimulate the imagination, and the tapestry of the human mind can produce visuals far more stunning than can ever be recreated on screen.

Many fans of the Harry Potter series state that though theReading Habits movies made a good attempt at translating the books into a visual reality, in their minds they had created richer visuals with more depth and clarity than the movies could. Books are a lifelong romance, faithful companions in times of joy and sorrow, they have the ability to make you dream and take you to places without moving an inch. Parents have an important role to play in the early development of children’s reading habits.

When given the right set of books that gradually increase in complexity and keep challenging the mind, the reading habit will form, and last a lifetime. Reading increases the size of the lobes of the brain, and is an essential to good learning outcomes in school and beyond.

Hindi – a symbol of unity!

“If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart.” – Nelson Mandela

With our focus shifting more and more towards English and other foreign languages, how many of us can claim that that we have perfected our own mother tongue?


What binds a country together is not a shared culture, as that shifts from one state border to another, but a language.

Hindi Diwas is celebrated across India on 14 September for commemorating the occasion of adoption of Hindi as the official language of Constituent Assembly on 14 September 1949.


We have all read our history textbooks back in school and we are aware of how Hindi played a major role in the Indian Freedom Struggle against the British Rule. Hindi is not just a language but it was one of the weapons that helped us in our struggle for independence. There has been no other language that united the people of this nation to fight for their independence. It is in this aspect that the language should be respected.

It is necessary to make the children aware of the beauty of Hindi and our other regional languages. How many children read literature in our regional languages and Hindi? How many parents themselves have read Hindi Literature? If you, as a parent and teacher have failed to inspire your child to respect their own language and culture, then to what extent can a child be blamed for their ignorance? Respecting and learning a language doesn’t mean that we have to ignore the others.


It is never too late to start. Go grab that copy of Munshi Premschand or Saadat Hasan Manto stories, and read them out to your children, one story a day. Let them discover the beauty of their own culture through those mesmerizing play of words.

Here’s a list of must read novels in Hindi, for you:

1. Godan: MunshiPremchand

2. Nirmala: MunshiPremchand

3. RaagDarbari: ShrilalShukla

4. Toba Tek Singh: Sadat HasanManto

5. Madhushala: HarivanshRaiBacchan

6. Mansrarovar series: MunshiPremchand

To my mentor with love – Happy Teacher’s Day

Dear Teacher,

Today on 5th September, I am sure that this will be one of the rare letters that you will receive in this age of technology. Firstly, let me start by wishing you, a very happy teacher’s day.

By this point of life I have figured out that life is not a series of individual events, but an ongoing journey. I want to take out a few minutes from this journey, to write to you.

I write this to express my gratitude and respect. For today, after all these years as I reflect back on my life, I realize that you have had a tremendous contribution in making me who I am.

Happy Teacher's DayI remember, as child when I first stepped into the class how you went an extra mile to ensure that you were a mother away from home. I was not afraid to make a mistake as you always taught me that with each mistake comes a lesson and that we grow as a person, and trust me dear teacher, I know what you meant, now. As I watch my children grow into an independent and confident individual in this fast paced world, I make sure that I impart the lessons of life that you painlessly conveyed to me, to them. Dear teacher, you were right that after a point in life our grades would not matter, but our values will.

I wish to let you know, that even today when I taste success, I think of you. I still live by your philosophy of – Do not show your children your outcome without showing your journey. Let them not know your success without knowing your struggle. Let them not remember your actions without remembering your principles. I thank you for being a part of my life.

I wish to part with this quote by Aristotle:

“Those who educate children well are more to be honored than they who produce them; for these only gave them life, those the art of living well.”
