Bandh for Bomb Blast

Toyna: Mama why is it a holiday in school today?
Mama: Because there were bomb blasts in the city yesterday and some people are trying to say it is not right. So they did a bandh. Bandh means that no school, offices or shops are open.
Toyna: But how will a bandh help?
Mama: I am not sure I can explain.
Mama (thinking) : An 8 year old can understand there is nothing to be gained by these bandhs, but our senior 70 year old experienced politicians don’t seem to get it.

I am an ex-Management Consultant and a successful entrepreneur having close to twenty years of corporate experience. I am currently focusing full time on being a homeschooling parent while researching on the future of education and alternate methods of education. I am also a Vedic Math Trainer, an Operations Manager at a business run by her children and a philanthropist working with tens of other under privileged children. I bring all my past and current experiences together in the form of writing blogs. Using these blogs I wish to create awareness in parents, caregivers and educators about parenting, education and holistic living.
