REFORMS IN EDUCATION

Welcome move by government of India as union cabinet approved national education policy 2020 today. It’s a big step and I believe it will radically change the way children learn beginning with their primary education.

This developmental approach towards education will bring social reform and equanimity. It gives more emphasis on indivisual skills. Our present and future generations will be immensely benefitted and better equipped to tackle any challenge.

TIPS ON TAKING CARE OF MENTAL HEALTH

Mental health issues affect nearly 15% of the population. This data can be alarming, considering that 2/3 of those diagnosed with mental disorder remains untreated. While mental disorders are sometimes caused by chemical imbalance in the brain, some of these are caused by the experiences that we need to deal with, such as death of a loved one or some other tragic or traumatic experience. Hence, the goal is to maintain a good or positive mental health, where one is able to take control of his life and able to cope with any and all situations that come his way. Here are some tips on taking care of mental health.

Always stay happy. This may sound vague, but there are many ways to stay happy. Remain positive and optimistic. Look at the bright side of life always.

So how do we stay happy? First, we must learn to balance our time. After a busy day or week, take time to relax. Do something pleasurable with your friends or family. It can be a hobby, sport or a simple activity. Aside from balancing our time, we must also manage time well. To minimize stress, make a schedule of the things you will do, and stick to it.

Be tolerant of others. All of us are different in many ways, so we must learn to accept each other’s ideas and opinion, even if it differs from our own. Learn to accept the weaknesses and shortcomings of others. Once we learn to accept, there is a lesser chance of conflict, which can be stressful and frustrating.

Spend time with your family and friends. Find time to talk to someone, even if you don’t make sense at all! What is important is the act of sharing your experiences, worries or problems with somebody. You must also learn to listen to their worries for them to feel better. In effect, not only have you helped yourself but you’ve helped your friend too.

Maintain a healthy lifestyle. You know the basics. Eat healthy food always. Exercise regularly. Sleep well. Avoid drugs and alcohol. Quit smoking. Avoid doing strenuous activities. Take time to rest.

Sadly, though, depression and other mental disorders affect children and the young. Parents have an important role in the child’s mental health. Parents must learn to communicate with their kids and at the same time listen to them. In their dealings, let the kid feel appreciated always. Acknowledge their strengths instead of focusing on their weaknesses.

Their coping abilities must also be developed. If they commit mistakes, explain so they will learn from them. Allow them to develop a sense of responsibility by letting them solve problems as well as make decisions. Teach them the importance of discipline and self-worth. Discipline them without making them feel unloved or unworthy.

Lastly, accept them for who they are. With acceptance comes love, respect, and everything else.

The key to taking care of mental health is being happy and in control of our lives. Once we know how to take control, we are able to cope with any and all situations that come our way. Being happy is not just a one-time event – it is a lifestyle. Stay positive always. Learn to find joy in the simple miracles of life. And be grateful for each wonderful day.

अपने सपने हो गए

The Horizon

एक-एक कर सब अपने
अब सपने हो गए
कुछ सपने हैं
उसमें से कुछ ही अपने हैं
जाने पहचाने रिश्ते
अनजाने हो गए
देखते-देखते
क्या से क्या हो गए
कुछ पल में बदल गए
कुछ तो बस
यूं ही बदल गए
हम देखते रह गए कि
कब हम पराए हो गए
कोई पूछे नहीं हाल-चाल
रिश्तों में खटास
ऐसे ही गुज़रे
जाने कितने साल-दर-साल
सोचता हूं रूठ जाऊं
बस बहुत हो गया
ऐसे जीते-जीते, पर
मनाने वाला कौन है
जाने को चला जाऊं
सब छोड़ कर, पर
जाने के बाद
रोने वाला कौन है
चार दिन में भूल जाते हैं लोग
मतलब निकल जाने पर पूछते
भाईसाहब आप कौन हैं ?
जी रहा हूँ मैं, पर
किसलिए ?
किसके लिए ?

बचपन

Great post with great message.
It’s a social need to protect the childhood and every child deserves that.
It’s the foundation of a value driven society where children learn and prosper.

THE HIDDEN SOUL

कहीं गुम हो गई वो मासुमियत
खो गई कहीं वो प्यारी मुसकान
इस असंतोषी भागमभाग भारी ज़िन्दगी में
यादें उन बीते दिनों की
यादें उन गुजरे पलों की
याद आती है फिर
बचपन की वो हँसी फुलवारी
थोड़ा कच्चापन, थोड़ी नादानी
वो हर समय की खेल-कूद
वो हर पल शैतानी
नहीं जानते क्या सही या गलत
नहीं जानते छल-कपट
वो तोतली आवाज़ में बातें
वो हर पल दिमाग में चलती नई खुराफाती
वो हर दिन की नई जिज्ञासा
नए नए प्रश्नों के साथ हाजिर
वो छोटी छोटी लड़ाई दो पल की
फिर मनाना दो पल का
पर ये विडंबना आज की
कि छिन गया है बचपन बच्चो का
अब हाथ में खिलौने या किताबें नहीं
औजार है
नन्हे नन्हें बच्चें पालक है परिवार के
बच्चे काम पर जा रहे है
खो रहा है बचपन
खो रहा है बचपन ।

SHALL WE SHARE IMAGES OF CHILDREN ON SOCIAL MEDIA

The Radical Radishes

My son has just turned 6 months and I usually take about 5-10 pictures of him a day, coz you know… you can’t miss a moment can ya? (and I’m obsessed with my squishy baby… OMG how do you not actually eat them?! The struggle is REAL!)

But sometimes I am just DYING to share some of the amazing snaps I have caught with the world. To show how cute and perfect my beautiful bubba is. Coz he is pretty cute 😉

We all like to show off what our offspring can do right?

All my friends are sharing pictures of their children, so why don’t I?

Here are the real reasons not to share pictures of children on social media.

Once it’s out, it can’t go back in.

When you post any image on social media, it is never retrievable. Like, you can delete it all you want, once…

IMPORTANCE OF DRINKING ADEQUATE WATER

Great tips for better health!

Bombay Ficus

We’ve always known that hydration and drinking water is important. But have you ever considered ‘why?’ or just how many important functions water plays a crucial role in?

One of the most important, and easiest things to keep in mind to stay fit and healthy is to have an adequate intake of water. We constantly underestimate, or are not even aware of the benefits and effects it can have, if we just drink an adequate amount of water.

Having said that, there is no measure as to how much water consumption is adequate. It depends on various factors like gender, weight, lifestyle, metabolism, anatomy, etc etc. One can find various measures on different websites saying “x” amount of water should be consumed for “y” amount of weight, or a website which has calculations based on weight and height and maybe considering various other factors. It is important to note that…

COLORS SAY IT ALL

THE HIDDEN SOUL

This is in response to THURSDAY POETRY COMPETITION by H.R.PHOENIX and the topic for this week is COLORS.

Being always rebellious in my way 
Questioning every single day
Why blue for boys
and pink for girls
Even colors will argue
Why gender-specific?


Whiter your skin tone
Goes around the world
More acceptable you become
Why discriminate
We all are humans
With red blood I guess


Don't wear black
Don't wear white
Unauspicious they proclaim
But who defines
The universe we live in
itself black and white


So many colors exist
Beautify our world
Red, blue, green
Yellow and orange
Singing their own melody
Nature cherish all


Close your eyes
Absence of light
Can you feel the pain
of one who can't see
Not even realizing
what dark looks like


Life or death
Light or dark
Day or night
Presence or absence
Hope or grief
All colors flash


Different colors
