When a child is borne, she/he does not understand any language except that of love and care. The first interaction a child encounters with her/his Mother. So she/he starts developing First  relations with Mother and gradually other relations develop.

Mother is the First Friend of a child. Then as she/he grows in Life, relations too grow geometrically and now horizon is also big.

Apart from blood relations, a person develops relations outside the family and here comes a Best Friend type of feeling. Yes Friendship is a Feeling which can never die if your relations are True.

First Sunday in the month of August is Celebrated as Friendship Day.

Happy Friendship Day to all Friends & Family.

आ अब लौट चलें
मुझे याद है आज भी वो जमाना जब हम छोटे थे और बाज़ार से कोई भी सामान लेने जाते थे तो एक कपड़े का थैला हमारे हाथ में होता था। कपड़े का थैला जरूरत के अनुसार छोटा या बड़ा होता था । ये सारे थैले मेरी मम्मी बड़े चाव से अपने हाथ से घर पर ही सिलती थीं । फिर धीरे धीरे हम बड़े होते गए और आधुनिक भी। कपड़े का थैला हाथ में ले जाने का फैशन खत्म सा हो गया या यूं कहें कि हम झिझकने लगे इसको घर से ले जाने में। फिर पॉलिथीन के थैले आने लगे और हम घर से खाली हाथ जाते और पॉलिथीन के थैलों में सामान ले कर घर लौटते। हमें ये एहसास ही ना था कि पॉलिथीन से हमें और समाज को कितना नुकसान पहुंचता है। अाइए इस नुकसान के एहसास को अपने अंदर जगाएं एवम् पॉलिथीन का प्रयोग बंद कर दें। आइए अब फिर से लौट चलें पुराने दिनों की ओर और अपने घर से कपड़े के थैले लेकर निकलें जब भी कोई सामान लेने जाएं। @विनय की कलम से

Communication - A big challenge for a toddler


Every one wants interaction with each other. We interact with other people through language - spoken, written, our actions, language of love and care etc. 

What about a Toddler ?

A baby on First interaction uses the Action Weeping, then Crying, then Smiling. Touch is most preferable action of a baby as he/she wants to touch and feel every thing. A baby holds the things tightly with a very firm grip. 

Until a baby learns a language - speaking or writing, very beautifully uses other means of communication to show his/her understanding of the things.

A baby  conveys his / her Love, Care and Needs through various actions and until he /she makes us understand, never gives up.  A  toddler starts speaking with small words like Maa, Papa, Dadi, Baba, Nani, Nana, Bua to convey us that he/she has started realizing the various relationships in Life. Slowly starts recognising the colours, shapes and other objects around her/him. 

A toddler has a capacity of fast learning and imitates what the people around her/him do. Learning becomes fun for a toddler. 

When one is alone, books are best friend. Language is understandable if we have learnt reading, writing and speaking. But what about a toddler who has not yet learnt speaking, reading or writing. Pictures attract a child  more.

Few Pics of a little child showing Books as a medium of showing his feelings / understanding :

A child is a source of inspiration for all of us. We have to understand his/her actions what he/she wants to convey. 

We must learn from the untiring effort of a child until he/she succeeds to convey what he/she means.

Good Morning Friends.

A question comes in my mind : whether Pampering is a bane or boon ?
Pampering your loved ones or pampering yourself both are equally important. What do you think ?

Tuesday, 2 January 2018

Every situation, every thought, every action has two aspects and we say " One I love, Two I don't", means one aspect I love but the other aspect, though I do not hate but I don't love. The many situations/thoughts/actions are coming in my mind :
One (Head) I win, Two (Tail) I don't win (may be loosing is not there).
One I go, Two I don't.
One my thought is positive, Two it is not.
One I slap you, two i don't.
One happy smile, two unhappy smile.
and the list goes on, on and on ............
Friends, do u agree with me? If yes, please expand the list giving ur thoughts a flight.
