Are schools safe??????

The whole world is talking about the incident happened in the school where in a 6 year old girl was raped..Shame on such sick minded people who don't even spare small kids.Its a real shame that our lives these days have come to this level that we are not sure of our kids security even in schools.

If the schools can't take enough safety measurements for the security of the kids,what for are they charging the exorbitant fees for???? Parents pay money hoping that they too treat our kids with the same love and respect.Schools are said to be the "Second home" and if this is how its going to be its very unfortunate and shameful.

Schools are supposed to be a place wherein a kid is molded,educated and trained to be become a better human.But if the "so called" teachers practice such shameful sins,what examples are they setting?? What happened in one school might happen in other schools also? Where are the Kids safe then????

Are we trying to say that now we wont be able to give kids a healthy competitive and safe growing years? Don't they deserve this?????

After hearing these things i am scared about the safety of my kid.I'm worried about the impact of these things on them.I am not able to insert "trust" on the schools and teachers.

Its time to think and take constructive steps in protecting the "child" in the children.

Veggies to eat or not to eat?

Still in daze after visiting the veggie stall sometime back..The prices are over the roof..I mean someone tell me how are we supposed to survive in a situation wherein everything except salary increases???
I was horrified to find tomatoes priced at Rs 50 per kg..Worse mom saying its 100 per kg at her place. I just asked her how and what do i cook?? None of the veggies are below 20 per quarter and they don't even look fresh enough to pay the amount asked..

Am i the only one feeling the pinch??? or is that everyone's feeling the same or too shocked like me to react?????

An impromptu with rains..

Sample this:

You drop your kid to classes,go inside the food mart nearby.U make a mental note (recap) of what all u wanna buy and start looking for the items.You also do some window shopping reading ingredients of the new products (i do that when i have time..:) ) and suddenly when u come out of the shop to your surprise..its raining,rather pouring..

Exactly this is what happened..when i left to drop the kiddo it was sunny rather windy with no traces of clouds and rains..its been like this for the past 3 days so very unassumingly i too went out with umbrella..:(
But when it started pouring without any trace of stopping,i too started walking in the rains.It made me nostalgic,happy to have got drenched in rains..but my other mind was worried about the cell phone..Ya cellphone,coz nowadays cell phones are stylish and not sturdy..I still remember my Nokia 3310 which,in spite of falling from the first floor was working very fine.They don't  make that kinda stuff these days...

Back to track,the impromptu with rains,in spite of mobile,money getting wet was very nice and a welcome change..nowadays we have forgotten the fun of getting drenched as we used to when we were kids..

The impromptu with rains made me come alive and reminded me from where i come..Thank you Rain Gods for that..

ABC s of parenting.

Parenting is a tough job..we all realize this only when we become parents.Till then,we always feel (atleast i used to feel that i would do a better job and be more cooler when i become one..;P) But things change with time..U realize the importance and value of our parents only when we become one..Sad but true..:)

New age parenting has become more tough because of the exposure the kids have to gadgets and outside world..True earlier days also there are many who had both the parents working but still they use to make time for little things around us..Today thanks to competition,power and position it becomes difficult to spend that "little" time.

Today we can buy them anything they demand for except "time".

Recently, i just got a message saying ABC of parenting..i found the thoughts interesting and worth sharing so here comes the ABC of parenting..for parents,who are busy and parents like me who even after having time,need to improve..:P

A: Ask your child about his school day.
B:Begin you child's day with a healthy nutritious breakfast.
C:Congratulate your child for doing well.
D:Discuss Homework with your child.
E:Encourage you child to read.
F:Find a quite place for your child to study.
G:Give your child responsibility.
H:Hug your child to build self worth.
I:Include your child in simple family decisions.
J:Join a library with your child.
K:Keep your child on a schedule that includes exercise and sleep.
L:Limit TV Viewing by selecting program with your child.
M:Make the time you spend with your child special.
N:Notice and discuss changes in your child's behavior.
O:Offer to help your child in setting his school books and papers.
P:Provide your child with good role models.
Q:Question the activities you child shares with his friends.
R:Respect your child when he has a different opinion than yours.
S:Share an interest or hobby with your child.
T:Take time to listen to your child.
U:Urge your child to study a little everyday for ahead tests.
V:Visit places of interests with your child.
W:Work with your child to set up rules of behavior.
X:Xerox and keep a record of activities of your child.
Y:Yield results by encouraging your child to do better.
Z:Zoom thru the ABC s again and again..

These are things we all know but maybe never make an attempt to follow them or give it a thought..Maybe we should all do dat and see the difference..:)

A heart touching story

 It was rainy season.The rain gods were creating havoc in the city.It was as if the clouds were hurt and crying incessantly because of pain.It was pouring very heavily making it difficult to even come out of the house..

In such a situation,J and M were driving a car and trying to get back home,the rains were lashing throughout making them to move slowly as they were unable to see ahead even for a few meters.They were to reach home very late and in that also rain gods were creating such havoc making sure they wont.Both of them were frustrated but could do nothing much in front of Mother Nature.

They had reached the ghat roads wherein driving down was even more difficult.J was trying his best to drive cautiously and slowly.In that scene the only lights other than the cars headlights were the thunder lights occasionally flashing with a huge scary sound making its presence felt.

Suddenly J pulls the brakes bringing the car to a screeching halt,the intensity of the brakes strong enough to put the headlights off and scaring M to the bone.Wondering why he pulled such a stunt M started fighting with him unaware of what made him stop.

J sees a lady figure coming near.Clothes torn,Blood dripping from her injuries she tries to come towards the car.As she comes near M notices her and starts screaming out of fright.J tries consoling her but to no avail.The lady by this time reaches near the car.J and M start pulling up the windows out of fright.The lady keeps banging the window requesting them to open but to no avail.

Suddenly he notices that shes folded her hands and was asking them for help.Thinking something he gets off car along with M.She was requesting him to save her son who has struck in the car that was hanging off the mountain.M s still not convinced,she still doubts and feel "This is a trap" and try warning J to not help.But J has already made up his mind and starts walking with the lady to the point.M too follows him helplessly.

As soon as reach they hear a child crying and the car in steep fall.J tries moving towards the car slowly balancing himself..the rains and thunderstorms making things still difficult..As he comes closer the child's cries becomes more and more clear.

He reaches the car,randomly picks a stone break the glass open and takes the child out safely.The child stops crying.While going back he realises he has forgotten to see who was in the driving seat.So he hands over the child to M he goes back to the car to see who the driver was and help him..

He gets a shock of his life when he sees the body of the dead driver.It was of the same lady who had come to ask him for help.Quietly he moves from there with tears in his eyes..M asks him who the driver was and where was the lady who had asked for help and vanished..

J just says "She was a mother"

I had read dis story and had tears in my eyes and numb with shock.Thought of sharing it with you all..

Dont lose out

Rujuta nails it again....a wonderful book again shes written stating the importance of exercise...In the busy schedule,now even i request everyone to make some time for your precious health...Please please workout..

Diet is a very important part,but equally exercising is important..we all know about how exercising is important for our health and how keeping ourselves fit can be done in as good as a 15 minutes schedule daily..Then too we never seem to follow them..we still hope for some miracle that would help us lose weight one day without we having to work towards it..

The book has highlighted on some wonderful issues and patterns of exercise a particular body type requires,which would help us gain maximum results..My suggestion is to go get a copy and read.Its worth every penny invested.
