Play it Right! – Bloggers’ Meet by Skola Toys (Chennai Edition)

The 8th of December, 2017 saw us, a bunch of bloggers, educationists and child therapists meet at the Park Hotel, Chennai for a warm discussion on the effects of dictation vs discovery on early learning in children. The meet was organized by Skola Toys where we had the chance to interact with Mridula Sridhar, Co-Founder of Skola Toys. Post the discussion, we took a walk around the display of Skola Toys collection. As a participant blogger, I feel privileged to bring to you the fine points, videos and photographs from the meet.

Autobiography of a Second-Hand Survivor

Well, all things, no matter how bright and beautiful, how wise and smart, eventually have to meet an end, one day. And it happened with our love, as well. It must have been eight months since we met. I accidentally slipped off his hand. And that was the beginning to our end. I didn't die but suffered death in all forms. The guy to whom I meant everything, was sad, angry and frustrated for a few days.

Is the City of Delhi a sign of Better India?

We, as Indians have so much to complain, crib and whine about the Indian politics, Indian Government, Indian politicians, systems, laws...yes, yes and yes, it is a big list! No matter how big and bold the headlines of a good initiative appear on the newspaper, we can with ease spot a crime, an unfair justice, a city disobedience to make us feel unworthy of living in India. Do you think we can change this perspective of Indians about India? Perhaps, we can, and we must!
