Where am I?

Where am I? I am here and so are you? Why are we here? Where are you? You are where you are supposed to be. You will reach where you are destined to. After trying to discover who am I (in my previous post https://apprendre24.wordpress.com/2021/08/08/who-am-i/ ) , here I am trying to decipher where am I, despite having my address on the Adhaar card, I can still question my humble soul about its domicile. Let’s do it!

If everything was in our hands, we would have been on Space – X with Musk. Chuckle 😉

  1. The Marriage

I need to address (pun intended) the concept of marriage here, where there is a change of place for most women who go on to stay with their in-laws (of course, the trend is changing now, a little better than ever), a complete change of scene where she is a new-comer rebooting her life. A fact that I never-ever understood! Why??

But as one reaches the marriageable age, things are different, sometimes all some young ladies want is a break, and this is the perfect one (with a hubby and a Honey-Moon, not mentioning the laws that have to be abided by.. ha ha!!)

I choose to believe that a married spouse is filled with strength and can re-start over again, and the laws 😉 need a change in life-style, and therein enters the spouse stirring various emotions leading to a mush-required change. The spouse is at the right place at the right time to put the house in order!!

Note: In earlier times, I would have typed the lady instead of spouse. With changing times, lets change our vocabulary.

2. Education

This comes way before marriage; now it is more of a personal choice after School, but earlier the Hostel or Boarding school were dreaded phrases.

The education received outside the house is real and stays with you. At home, everything is taken for granted. If you went away from home to study, your have learnt life skills with education. Lucky you!

Where am I? If you are at a place that you aren’t happy, consider it a learning experience, if you are at a place that is difficult to adapt to, be it the heat, the cold, the vibes, the aura or the ambiance, try moving around things to get comfortable. I can vouch for this. Why are you in a particular place? You would know that after you leave it!

3. Your choice

Where are you? Not by luck or marriage or work, but by choice. If you are the person who made a choice and got to go there, kudos to you. You stay there irrespective whether you like it or not, YOU STAY PUT, because it is your choice.

Also your choice is through a conviction that you have very strongly stood by. The choice is always yours!!

In my opinion, where you are is the right place as of now, but if you feel the need to change, do it, however difficult.

Questy Musings is a musing with a question. I have certain questions that keep me busy when i have nothing to do. Sharing my thoughts aloud, I wonder if this post touched you and made you reflect upon certain aspects of your life, my blog, my write-up here has achieved its mission. Let me know where are you? See you around soon.

Available on: The Blogchatter website: https://www.theblogchatter.com/download/the-story-of-story-by-ravish-mani

Number of pages: 47

Book Blurb: The book, The Story of STORY, talks about important aspects of storytelling through the story of STORY itself from evolutionary perspective. It mainly deals with why people read stories and how to leverage it to write impactful stories for providing powerful aesthetic experience to the readers.

About the book: The Story of a story by Ravish Mani is an absolutely inspiring book for authors or aspiring authors. It covers different aspects, layered beautifully talking about the protagonist, arousal of emotions in readers, belief formation, etc. The book systematically breaks down the story of a story with excellent examples to help the reader understand very well.

The examples deserve an extra mention, they communicate the message diligently, and I personally need to re-read the book a couple of times more to understand the depth it wants an author to reach.

There is a spiritual touch to the book where the author talks of desire, karma, pain and pleasure. It is truly to be read to experience this aspect.

The author’s laptop had crashed two days prior to the submission, but the effort of launching the E-book typed on a phone is commendable. The cover page could get more creative as it is the first impression of he book.

The author has given brief information, strong words and even stronger titles that are on point. The not so long book can be read soon, but an aspiring author must make notes while reading. The miscellaneous topics are a bonus to the readers. The author’s earnest desire to share information is mentioned in his own words “It invoked a desire in me to provide useful information to aspiring authors by sharing my expertise in the field of storytelling by launching a book through this Carnival.”

This book can be downloaded from the Blogchatter website. It is a must read and will keep you engrossed with the story of a Story. It has something very transparent and raw which must be experienced.

E-Book Talk: Stress free Education

Name of the E-book: Stress free Education A guide for parents

Author: Deepa Gandhi

E-Book Released on: 21 May 2021

Available on: The Blogchatter website: https://www.theblogchatter.com/download/stress-free-education-a-guide-for-parents-by-deepa-gandhi

Number of pages: 37

Genre: Education, Parenting

Book Blurb: As given on the Website: Are you looking for ways to make education stress-free for your kids? Education can be fun and stress-free only if you know how to approach it in the right way. This Ebook shows you how.It is a parent’s guide to raising happy kids who are not stressed out due to academic pressures.

Do not compare is one important tip offered here with a good explanation. The E-book also offers Nutrition tips, Easy Homework Tips, Bullying in school- tips for parents, Importance of teaching soft skills to kids and many more topics.

Being an educator, I completely agree with the need to write a book on Stress Free Education, with cut-throat competiion as the author says, I quote “As parents, you play a huge role in reducing your child’s stress. Education should be about learning and not about being stressed.” Rewarding the effort is important, not the result is a major take-away for me. That has been my mantra as a parent, I am glad that this is being conveyed in print (digitally).

One thing that I liked about the book is the author tells you what could be the tough road ahead and then offers the solution. The author communicated to the reader like a dialogue saying , I quote “I know how difficult it is to make kids understand the value of eating healthy during exams….” I understand…, etc. where the reader feels personally dressed by the author.

Nutrition tips for exam giving kids is a chapter I thoroughly appreciate. The tips and the sample diet chart is indeed very useful.

The chapter Importance of team sports for kids By Divya Malhotra hightlights the fact that TEAM sports is essential for children. Each chapter has its own significance and is important for the overall development for the child. Good Education is the foundation of a Good Citizen, who in turn plays a great role in the development of a nation. Every child is important and must have Stress Free Education. Download the E-book Stress Free Education and read it right away.
