Do you get fed up with every new problem your child draws to you with every new sun rise and sun set?! Or are you mentally harassed with all complains from the school or signing the ill remarks and visiting the school for your child more often then one visits the temple/church!?
Children – many believe that children are god’s gift. Then why do their problems become a tedious task to handle! As a parent, you indeed should take this situation as an opportunity where you can help your child to come out the difficulty and stand better than before. The next time your child has some issues which cannot be figured out at his end, instead of simply grumbling or comparing in two siblings and demonstrating how one is inferior to the other, take a pause and think on it. The young minds are more keen observers than the adult brains. So, take that unpleasant situation as an opportunity to build in your relationship to better standards. Running away from the situation by pushing the things off to your spouse or some other person will only ruin your image in your child’s mind. They observe your actions as well as the reactions you give them when they need your help and that is what you develop on their minds. That is the way you develop their personality. Many of you still may not be convinced by this discussion so far, so let us take a business example a simple reason being that in the fast-changing world. Trade is the only word which the illiterates are also literate in. You have a high revenue generating client of yours but at the same time is too irritating in terms of a thousand queries! Do you skip off or try grumbling over on him! Not at all. Then how can your children, the biggest assets of your personal balance sheets be an irritation when they have queries or need your help in understanding their own weak points!
Parents, a thought on this is surely needed! Do think! You are the potters of your little pots. Shape them with a little extra understanding and be there behind when they need a support and belief that you will hold them back if they fall.
This was a very innocent question I asked my Maa every single time from the time I started fasting on Chaturthi! – “Maa, why is it called Angarki Chaturthi and what is so special about it?” And she would reply when chaturthi falls on Tuesday it is Angarki!
Finally after nearly 7-8 years of Chaturthi I come to know the entire story of Angarki Chaturthi!
So Angarak literally means “red like burned coal”
So Angarak was son of Mother Earth and Rishi Bhardwaj who was great devotee of Lord Ganesha. Lord Ganesha was impressed by Anagarak’s devotion and he asked him to express a wish which Ganesha could accomplish!
Angarak promptly replied – that he wanted his name to be associated with Bappa forever, and there it goes Ganesha granted him a wish that every chaturthi that falls on Tuesday will be named as Angarki Chaturthi
So to all the Bappa fans – Happy Angarki!

It is that part of the year where I miss my school days! Being in an convent school where we had sisters, brothers, mothers, fathers and friends – it was a perfect family at school. Today after nearly 6 years that schooling is done I do miss that “Christmas play” , The Santa, that crib decoration competition, every year’s birth story of Baby Jesus! Oh My God those carols and jingles were boring at that time but now even when I accidentally hear one of them it makes me feel so blessed being part of Stella Maris High School!
And yeah! It would be most wonderful gift of Santa if we could have a get-together – a reunion of school friends in those school premises with all those teachers who once pulled our ears and made us what we are today!
Christmas – is thanksgiving was what one of my teacher said is school, saying thank you does not change the scenario but it does make the person feel special and recognized!
So this Christmas I heartily thank all those school mates, the teaching as well as non teaching staff and each and every person who made school life a wonderful memory for lifetime!!
And the cause is fitness! Yes! Reason being a awareness (they are doctors by profession) – simply the ones who care for others health need to symbol of fitness and health to all their patients!
There started a journey of cycling – the only difference being it was not like we teenagers do – Every Sunday! It was a daily routine of cycling, be it a dark rainy morning or a chilly wintry dawn! It just cannot stop both these doctor friends from getting up and pedaling for health!
A simple route from Nagar road they pedal to Yerwada to Pune Station to their favorite early morning start at Dagdusheth Ganpati with a hot cup of tea and back to home! Well Sundays are special days and distance has no limits for both of them!
Getting up at 4:45 am where mornings be like ice too feels chilled is just an inspiration!
With all this dedication the duo completes 5000 kms today! To be specific some 5012 kms today! And I heartily congratulate them for keeping up the dedication to drive for fitness!
And it gives me immense pleasure and pride to reveal that one of the two super heroes is my DAD!
Proud of both of Jaiswal uncle and Papa! Keep up the young spirit going! It does give an inspiration to many of us!
CA Students!! A crowd of more than lakhs of students coming from various backgrounds – son of farmers, daughters of Rickshaw drivers, brothers of unmarried sisters and sisters to a crew of siblings which are dependant from her come to cities like Delhi, Mumbai, Pune with one single dream of being a Chartered Accountant!! Yes!! That one prefix with name “CA” is which these students struggle hard for years, be it with classes, repeated attempts or with articleship!!
खैरात मै तो हम CA Students ने आज तक कुछ नही मांगा! ना मांगेगे because we are proud students of only one of its kind institute of the country who does not entertain caste system! यहा जो भी clear करता है वो सिर्फ अपने दम पर है! ना किसी की दुआ ना किसी की मेहेरबानी! Its all because of the sleepless nights spent and the wee morning studies!
But today, we students request! Yes, we REQUEST! Dear ICAI!! Please amend 39(4)!
For those who aren’t aware of the said section and clause – as per 39(4) of The Chartered Accountants Regulations 1988 – The revaluation done will be within a month of the declaration of result for which a nominal fee will be charged by institute. The Fees shall be only for verifying whether the candidate’s answer in any particular paper or papers have been examined and marked and not for RE-EXAMINATION OF THE ANSWER!
Our request to OUR institute is only that we need an amendment in the said clause. And this is not something out of the world. Nearly every renowned university has such provisions of rechecking and re-evaluating. As very well explained by the eminent teachers of our field – I would like to highlight that IT IS OUT RIGHT!
इतना तो professionalism institute ने हमे सिखाया है, whatever we ask will never be something wrong or baseless! This is our sincere request to #dear ICAI amend section 39(4). Change is needed and I support change!
Principles in life are very important! They help you survive when you are hit hard by tough situations; they help you make right decisions and in setting your priorities in life, especially in this fast-changing world which is full of uncertainties. Ira ki Kahaniyan is the author’s attempt to share his life’s principles in the form of poetry. Since the book is aimed at educating children, the author reinforces the importance of hard work, relationships, friendship, good health, living in the moment, education, equality, power of dreams, importance of karma, festivals, patriotism, environment and gratitude through a wise little girl, Ira.
One more reason why I am including this book in my blogs is that the author has decided to share all its proceeds (from book sale) with CRY (Child relief and You). To aid its sales, I want this to reach out to schools, libraries, children’s centers catering to diverse segments of children in addition to your own circle of friends and family. This fun-filled unique book of wisdom, will help storytelling by teachers, enhance reading competency in children and make all involved fall in love with ideas and words!
