A day at Special school and Nursery

I had been to a special school (school for disability children) 2 weeks ago and I was going to write about it but the earlsfield incident had taken over the priority. So, coming to the point, I had been to this school and I was amazed by how lovely those children are.

During some of our teaching sessions earlier, we were shown some videos on how some disabled children behave and how patient and understanding we have to be to successfully interact with them to help them live through their inabilities and improve the condition. Most of the videos showed only what those children cannot do and some being really aggressive. (Perhaps because that's the part what is vital when it comes to teaching). So before going to the school I was a little confused as to how I was going to handle them when they behave unexpectedly, say one throws at me or hit me with something. lol. But in fact,it turned out to be an amazing time though very short.
All kids got along with me very well. One of them was holding my hand all the time and trying to talk to me (her speech development is less for the physical age). I suppose she has learning disability as well but seemed to be very very cheerful. Another one was telling me at the end of their poster-making session which I helped with, "this poster looks pretty, just like you". LOL. There was another kid who was really sad that I was going to leave and kept asking me whether there is any way I could stay with him until after-school club. Such sweet hearts they all were. I loved my presence there even though it was too short and I would be very happy if I get free time to join the staff as a volunteer but obviously week days are terribly packed for me, which makes my wish highly unlikely.
I had been to a nursery last week, which was also fun. Reading stories to the kids and playing with them took me back to my childhood. It was lovely!

I wanted to write a lot but as I let to too late, I've forgotten most of what I wanted to say and there are lots of other things that have taken precedence. So this turned out to be a very brief post.
Anyhow, hope you all are having a great weekend.
Take care.

Sevva Thosham and Science

At home! Had a good day today. Went to the Shiva Temple as it was PradoshaViradham today. Apparently, it was yesterday in London and today in SriLanka. I had no idea why and when people fast for Pradosham. I only had a slightest idea that it is something like Ekadasi. I got a good opportunity to talk to the priest there about religion, which is quite rare and unusual! I always get questions of why, what and how. And it was a time for me to ask some of the Whys I had in my mind though not everything. It is really amazing how science overlaps religion (in general). There is always a strong scientific aspect behind every feature of Hinduism. It was a delight to sit and listen to the priest about the religion and its science.

One of the interesting things I got to know was about the SevvaiThosham. I did not know much about SevvaThosham before as there was never a talk about it in my family. As the priest explained, a girl with SevvaiThosham should marry a man with the same thosham. And tha…

Female feticide and Sex ratio in India - BMJ

While leafing through the BMJ magazine; June, a letter on one of the articles of sBMJ May urged me to find the May issue and read it. It was about the unwelcome sex in India. I have heard about the high occurrence of female feticide in India but happening to hear a lot in the recent days on magazines and blogs.

The article touched on the dangerous traditions in India which favour for the birth of a boy than girl as boys are cheaper because of the dowry system. The high social and economic value of men is the causation for sex selective abortions in India. Though the dowry payments are illegal, it is accepted as a tradition to continue their family hierarchy and this phenomena is deeply rooted in the societies. Although is illegal to do a prenatal examinations to identify the sex of a fetus is illegal in India, if the families once known it is a girl, the fetus is terminated. According to the article, evidently there were about 5 million female fetuses are aborted every year purely on …

What Saranya means?

Does any of you believe in these kind of quizzes and answers? Stumbled on this site while googling for something else....Though I don't take these serious or believe them, just reading them is often fun :)

What Saranya MeansYou are the total package - suave, sexy, smart, and strong.
You have the whole world under your spell, and you can influence almost everyone you know.
You don't always resist your urges to crush the weak. Just remember, they don't have as much going for them as you do.

You are usually the best at everything ... you strive for perfection.
You are confident, authoritative, and aggressive.
You have the classic "Type A" personality.

You are wild, crazy, and a huge rebel. You're always up to something.
You have a ton of energy, and most people can't handle you. You're very intense.
You definitely are a handful, and you're likely to get in trouble. But your kind of trouble is a lot of fun.

You are very intuitive and wise. You understand the wo…
