Nani House

Yesterday, on my way down in the society elevator, I met a young boy and a girl. Boy must have been around 10 and the girl around 6. Boy was carrying two large bags full of eatables and the girl was managing a small trolley bag. They had an air of excitement and adventure that comes at the start of a new journey.

I casually remarked, “Exams are over, eh!”. The boy nodded silently, trying not to engage in conversation with a stranger.

I continued, “Going to Nani house for the holidays. ” At this comment, the boys curiosity got better of him. He immediately asked, “How do you know?”

I smiled and said, “I just know.” In my heart I wondered, where else in the whole wide world do we go as soon as our final exams are over! The world is at our finger tips. We can choose to travel to anywhere in the world but the start of the holidays have to be marked with a trip to Nani’s house.

Blessed are those who have grandparents to visit. Blessed are those who have grandparents living with them. Blessed are those who choose to visit parents before everything else.

Like the lovely brother and sister, I am also eagerly waiting for the exams to get over. For no other reason but to take my children to their Nani’s house.

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.
