    My Mom

    As seen from the eyes of an 8 year old child.

    Cuts and Tears

    Yog works endless hours under the hot sun in our little home garden with his Dad. He shovels, digs, moves rocks, pulls weeds/roots, prunes trees and works with all kinds of pests with ease. His legs and arms are strained, knees are black and fingers are scraped. Overall, he is a happy boy. We sit down on our dining table under the fan with a glass of icy lemonade by our side. Yog opens his brand new Math text book and immediately ends up getting a paper tear from the sharp edges of the new book. His eyes well up with tears, voice gets choked and he mutters under his…

These posts equate coding to life skills and subtly make you believe that there is a Steve Jobs hiding inside each child just waiting to come out. If you enroll your child in coding classes, you would have made the career of your child. Needless to say, these kind of posts are typically created and shared by companies conducting coding classes. They want you to enroll your child so that they can make money and yes, of course also…

    The Human Paradox

    The ocean encompasses the land Yet the both couldn’t be more different We seek agreements in relationships Knowing very well that opposites attract We choose to love unconditionally Hoping that our love will be returned We believe in freedom of our expression How dare, someone else questions our freedom We believe there is one God We call upon that God to save us and crush the enemy   These are the contradictions of life Answers which no one found It is human nature, they say to behave like animals in our own way
