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.

About the book: Stress Free Education by Deepa Gandhi offers day-to-day tips to make sure that children have the best of both worlds, education and leisure. The E-book has inputs by Divya Malhotra and Stuti Mehrotra. The book covers home-schooling, an emerging trend nowadays, and brainstorming on this subject is essential. 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.

Chef: Voilà ma chérie

Chef’s wife: Thank you so much!

Chef: Your welcome!

Chef’s wife: At home today!

Chef: This really feels at home.

Chef’s wife: Yes, I know. This is home!

Chef: Our home.

Chef’s wife: So what’s the plan?

Chef: For what?

Chef’s wife: The Diwali plan.

Chef: Yeah! Tell me about it.

Chef’s wife: We discussed about it.

Chef: Yes, we did. Tell me the final plan.

Chef’s wife: The restaurant is going to be set up in Pune. I would be travelling every weekend to Pune, have scheduled meetings in the afternoons with the manager, with the stewards in the early evening before the crowd sets in, with support staff on Saturday morning. I need to connect with them.

Chef: And the chef?

Chef’s wife: You tell me, when would be a good time to set a meeting with her.

Chef: Post 9 P.M. Dinner is usually done by then, maybe a little later. Why don’t you ask her?

Chef’s wife: Yes, will do it.

Chef: This dream project is going to be super successful.

Chef’s wife: Yes, it will

Chef: I remember the day you told me about it. A new dawn, a new you was talking to me. I was never inclined to think in this direction. You wanting to save the young adolescents and give them a life.

Chef’s wife: It isn’t me giving them a life. I have a plan,and hopefully it works.

Chef: To a layman like me who knows about nothing but the fruit and vegetable markets, the spices and kitchen, you seem to be doing something different.

Chef’s wife: Yes, it is different. There are some articles in the newspapers with journalists being skeptical, I just have my fingers crossed, my tasks completed and a daily prayer.

Chef: That’s all in place.

Chef’s wife: (Eyes closed) Can’t wait to get started.

Chef: Yes, the finest restaurant in India where the chef, the managers, the stewards, the support staff and you, my dear are all women. And the guess would be women.

Chef’s wife: I will be personally monitoring all the activities, and this will prove that women support women, and we already have the organisations all over the globe ready to offer funds.

Chef: That is news to me!

Chef’s wife: Yes, The Head Chef of Bon Appétit just called.

Chef: So where is our young lady?

Chef’s wife: She called to inform that she would be arriving directly at Pune for the opening ceremony. She said that she had messaged you.

Chef: Like father, like daughter!

Don Quixote is a classic written by MIguel de Cervantes in Spanish. It follows the journey of Alonso Quijano who renames himself Don Quixote. Don Quixote enters the chivalric world in his imagination and sets off on an impractical pursuit of idealistic goals, he wants to save the world. He doesn’t accept his current reality and is determined to change what it wrong, but in a way that is not practical.

Questy Musings is a musing with a question. What do you think of a restaurant for the women and by the women? Subtle messages get stronger by the day. A small initiative could lead to a change. There are some organisations run by women, countries run by women. Do you think we need to see more of them. Why? Why is it that I need to write this post. There is an emotion that drives these thoughts. Why does it even arise? There is an aura of inequality that exists and some choose to ignore it. I do not. And try in my small way to change it

A Don Quixote exists in each of us, we want to change the world, the difference is he followed all the truth in the chivalry romances he had read, he stood ground for all what he wanted. Today,if someone does that, we are called crazy, insane and quixotic.

Through Quixotic conversations, discover the quixotic emotions, discover how relationships are built through emotions and conversations, and not societal norms.

Initiate conversations. Discussion, brainstorm and create a change.

Cliché

Caroline: Hey!

Pratyuksha: Hi Karls!

Caroline: So where are we going today?

Pratyuksha: Are we?!

Caroline: It is your birthday.

Pratyuksha: Sure… it is!

Caoline: So where is the party?

Pratyuksha: Oh! the party you mean. Sure, I have a place in mind. I’ll call the others, we can go by 5.

Caroline: Why so you sound different? Something’s the matter.

Pratyuksha: Do I? No!

Caroline: Yea! Uncle and Aunt are wonderful together.

Caroline: Ok, I just laze around here, we can go together.

Pratuyksha: That sounds nice! We could grab lunch together, I promised mom and dad to lunch face timing them, they’d be delighted to see you with me.

Pratyuksha: I really prefer staying home with you guys and not going out.

Caroline: Your birthday, and we must enjoy a treat and a fun-filled evening.

Pratuyksha: True! Why not at home, just a simple get-together and some heart-to-heart talk. I don’t feel like partying, I prefer spending time with mom, dad,and talk to you guys about what’s happening in your lives, and not doll-up, look around, gossip. We could dance here if you want to.

Caroline: A birthday is meant to be celebrated. A birthday is when the day is all yours, when we see to it that you are pampered and showered with all the love. Give it an evening!

Pratyuksha: Yes, that’s what I have been listening to all these years, Clichéd. T

Caroline: Clichéd! of course not. It is a celebration. We love our birthdays. We love celebrating it. We wait for that one day to burst out.

Pratyuksha: Exactly, why only that day. Yes, it calls for a celebration of birth, but not to such a large extent. I would love to do my thing everyday, I would love everyone being nice and polite everyday, I would love to see people smile everyday, I would love to see happiness everyday, why do people forget to live everyday and instead do the grind, mumble, complain, groan about things being undone, but the same thing is accepted because it is your birthday. I guess birthdays are reminders that one day is yours, 364 are mine.

Caroline: My! why do you say that? Did someone rub you the wrong way?

Pratyuksha: Hell No! I find birthdays too clichéd, the expectation of the birthday person form her/his friend to throw a surprise party. The expectation of a gift. The burden of the spouse, family on getting them presents. Well, it just makes the others who can’t afford it feel bad. And the oohs! and Aha! that is such a sweet hubby or such concerned parents. I do agree that it is a big day and gifts can be showered, let everyone keep it normal.

Caroline: I never ever thought of Birthday being clichéd, it is a way of showing affection, that is it. It is reason, it is a day, an opportunity to show love and people wait for their 18th, 50th, 60th and 75th birthday as landmarks in their lives, so as to measure how well they have lived.

Pratyuksha: Yes, it also becomes a yardstick of comparison among relatives.

Caroline: Let them be!

Pratyuksha: How can I? Listen to mom and dad today. Anyway, my opinion is that birthdays are clichéd and we need to have a birthday atmosphere all throughout the year. EVERYDAY MUST BE CELEBRATED. LIFE IS A CELEBRATION.

Caroline: Yes, I agree to that. But an extra punch on your birthday. So are we going or not?

Pratyuksha: Just because you agree. WE ARE ON!

Caroline: And here is your present. I couldn’t wait to give it to you.

Pratyuksha: Carls! Home-made cookies and cake by Uncle Cool.

Caroline: Yes, he sat up last night and baked them for you.

Pratyuksha: Aww! That wasn’t necessary! He could have just baked the cake.

Caroline: I couldn’t tell him that. He doesn’t think A BIRTHDAY IS CLICHéD. He believes it is a special day!

Pratyuksha: Thank you Karls, if not for you guys, I would be stranded in this city, I would have totally lost it. You bring back my sanity.

Caroline: But you know what, I learnt something today, I learnt that one has to celebrate life itself and not wait for special occasions, not look for reasons to celebrate, not be frustrated and fed up with the daily routine, instead work hard, then take a break. I am usually upset when I get home, looking at Dad with his bright messy apron all the time, doing what Mom used to do. Charles, gaming, and I need to do the dishes as I arrive. Maybe I’ll just take a bite of the new cupcakes he has displayed on the counter, take a shower and then do the dishes.

Pratyuksha: God! I thought I was the one with problems.

Caroline: That is what everyone thinks, but with a good friend beside you, they vanish!

Pratyuksha: Say that again! I’ll call Uncle Cool and Charles, what say should we ask them to join us this evening, we can go to a place that offers a gaming arena and excellent food with some fab-music.

Caroline: Prats, that is too much!!

Partyuksha: And someone just said their problems have vanished!!!

He doesn’t accept his current reality and is determined to change what it wrong, but in a way that is not practical.

Questy Musings is a musing with a question. How do you like to celebrate your birthday? Obviously one likes to be pampered. How about the other days, do you let life treat you the other days differently? Sure, but not getting drained out. Do you enjoy life? Do you celebrate life? Are Birthdays clichéd? Do you think they are overdone, and then a vacuum on other days? Are giving presents a task or do they come out of happiness. Are receiving presents, an expectation? What happens if you don’t receive a present? or the expected present?

A Don Quixote exists in each of us, we want to change the world, the difference is he followed all the truth in the chivalry romances he had read, he stood ground for all what he wanted. Today,if someone does that, we are called crazy, insane and quixotic.
