Publish Date: 09-Jul-2021 02:45:01

“World is moving very fast”, “Move on or you will be left behind”, “increase your pace”, “learn to jump higher”… and the list goes on. These are some phrases that are clichés today when we address our youth and youngsters. High-intensity competition has created a whirlpool of anxiety and the parents, teachers, mentors, and students are all getting pulled into it.

BOARD EXAMINATIONS CANCELLED / POSTPONED! WHAT CAN WE LEARN FROM THIS?

Publish Date: 25-Apr-2021 03:24:46

Schooling, over all, has been most affected by the pandemic, all across the globe. The UNICEF has declared that over 168 million children have gone without an education this past year of 2020. The COVID 19 has been the greatest shock to education in over a century, they claim. We in India feel the impact even more, as we (accept it or not) are a very examination and result oriented society.

A CROWN FOR THE TEACHERS --- Week 8 of the lockdown has started and as the relaxations are announced and new regulations implemented, the World is still learning to adapt and live with its new best (worst) friend – the Virus! I read recently that UNESCO, in praise of the great efforts of the teachers around the World, had remarked, “Even though Schools have closed but Schooling hasn’t”.
