Smile – Because That’s Your Strength

Blog, Life
Smile is the common antidote of confidence to solve your problems. The security personnel, the housekeeping staff, and my house helper – all three have one thing in common. Yes! They always SMILE when they converse with me. Have I always smiled back? Maybe or maybe not. But they always smile, when they do.

YOU Are the Only Gift YOUR CHILD Wants…

Blog, Education, Life, Parenting, Relationship
The way a child enjoys life is truly inspiring and a lesson for adults to learn. Every Child is Precious Like any other child, even my childhood was filled with ups and downs. I had witnessed so many instances that no child should experience and certainly have scars for life. Yet, the first thing that comes to my mind when I think about my childhood is the sheer joy of playing on the streets. Guess, I was in first or second grade, that I started to play with the boys on the streets. Talking confidently, convincing them to take me in the team, and to be an active participant to decide which game would be played on that day – I was always there on the pitch. Even before reaching…

Atychiphobia – The Fear of Failure This morning when I was in the lift, witnessed a parent thrashing her little one for the marks she had scored. This took me to my school days.

An age when I dint even know how to pronounce this word, Atychiphobia – The Fear of Failure got deeply rooted into my system.
