Value yourself

Its something that really encouraged me to write about it.It tells us about our real value…

My mother used to cook beans,but before she cooked the beans she picked bad and dirty beans and threw them at our back yard and only cooked the good beans,but when the rain came they became seed and germinate and start to grow up and looked beautiful,but that same person who threw them away started harvesting .She started to see/realized that the beans she threw away had value.

Now let me tell you don’t cry when people throw you at the back yard,don’t cry when they reject you,don’t cry while they are looking down at you.

The rain is coming and the same people who rejected you will invite you.GOD loves those that are left out and looked down upon, GOD will bless you just stay connected to HIM and everyone will see how valuable you are.They might try to bury you but remember that you have germinating ability inside of you,you will bounce back.You will rise as a champion,there is a champion in you,your rainy season is coming.

Have faith in GOD.Amen!

Although each religion follows a different calendar to decide the festival date.

Likewise when southern region celebrates Basant Panchmi to welcome Springs, Eastern India at the same time celebrates Saraswati Puja by offering prayers to the goddess of learning and wisdom.

Besides offering prayers, playing with colors and crackers, Indians do have a festival for brothers and sisters.Rakshabandhan is a festival on which sisters tie a beautiful rakhi on their brother’s wrist and brothers in return give some gifts and promise to protect her from all evils.

In Navratre, Goddess Durga is offered prayers and people do fasting and In Ganesh Chaturthi, Lord Ganesha is worshipped.

Magic of Motherhood

Well said “God cannot be present everywhere, so he created MOTHER”.

Feeling of becoming a mother is beyond any explanation. It changes your world.A feeling of responsibility comes from within.It seems life is taking a new turn and ready to welcome a new you…. Mother and child are two bossoms on single branch.

A mother is a teacher, caretaker, guide, guardian, friend and the list goes on…. Being a mother is a blessing in itself.Keeping baby in womb for period of 9 months creates an unbreakable and unconditional bond between mother and kid. Mother not only gives birth but becomes the shadow of kid. She find happiness in whatever child do. Her life revolves around the kid. She feeds the kid on time, make him bath, washes clothes, changes diapers,helps in homework, takes kids out to play, plans birthday parties, celebrate all special occasions with kid. She also keeps awake keeping in arms when kid is sick.Mother is the only person in your life who will never betray you.Whatever she will do will do for your betterment.She will always forgive all your wrongs and will embrace you with all goods and bad.

Motherhood is all about influence…. Mother’s have an incredible opportunity to influence the next generation by what we do everything..

For example:One day Thomas Edition came back from school with a paper in his hand which was to be read only by his mother. After reading ,his mom’s eyes filled with tears .When Thomas asked what is written in the letter, she said ‘your son is a genius and our school does not have good teachers to teach your son. So please teach him at home.

From that day, Thomas’s mother started teaching him at home and continued till she died. Later Thomas Edition proved to be genius of that century.After his mother’s death, once while going through her stuffs, he found the letter which his teacher had given to be read by his mom only. His eyes filled with tears after reading it. The letter said’your child is expelled from school for his mental deficiencies ‘.

This was only Thomas’s mother’s positive attitude which influence his life to become a genius.Mothers are bundle of blessings given to us by god.

Is your child really safe in his second home-School???

Attention parents?? Are your kids safe in their second home-School?
Yes.. SCHOOL is children’s second home where they spend significant amount of their childhood.

As a mother, while sending my kid to school, the thought of insecurity gives me goosebumps.A constant fear remains within until the kids comes back.
In India, the cases of killing, molestation, eve teasing, rape, sexual harrasment are increasing day by day. The victims are not only girls but small kids have also been hunted for monstrous crime.

A brutal murder of a 7 yr boy in Gurugram school has shocked the whole country.The accused has slit Pradhyuman’s neck with kitchen knife after attempting to sexually assault in school’s washroom. How he was allowed to get into school’s washroom and that too with a knife??
On the other hand, a 5 yr innocent girl who should play and enjoy childhood has been raped brutually by school peon.Her parents came to know about it when they saw the girl washing blood stains from her dress.
Another incident of a 10th class boy of Noida school who was slapped by his classmate so badly that his hearing got impaired.
These incidents have raised questions on children’s security in school.
How will our kids be safe in schools??

This has led to an undeniable policy for children ‘s security. The UNICEF (The United Nations Childrens Fund) has defines child’s protection as “the strengthening of country’s environment and capacities and responses to prevent child from voilence, expliotation, abuse, neglect and effects of conflicts”.

The Central government on its part has passed laws such as Protection Of Children against Sexual Offence (POSCO act) and many state governments have issued school safety guidelines.These laws and protocols are necessary but not sufficient for our children ‘s security.. for example police verification is mandatory for all schools by state governments but very few police departments have proper verification systems.Another example is the recommended use of CCTV cameras.. but installation of these will help in tracking the event that has taken place and will not help in stopping it.

Every school should create a child protection policy which should include factors like transportation, medical facility,toilets,staff training, forms of punishment and abuse. Also this policy should be made freely available to teachers, staff members, children and parents, guardians and public.
