048: Season 3 wrap up and Netaji’s Birthday

Hi, Feels like an achievement to wrap up my Season 3! We discussed so many aspects of education in this season. I’ve attempted to play back some of the great things we discussed. Thanks to all the lovely guests who cared to share with us, all the stuff we covered in this Season. But there’s something else happening today.. it’s the Birthday of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose. I feel humbled at the efforts this great man put in to bring us freedom. And so, we finish this episode with a little discussion about this great leader. Jai Hind! Thanks,

034: Importance of Education

Hi, I hope you all had a good Halloween week. Today’s episode is exciting for 2 reasons…1st, it’s the first episode of my Season 3 and 2nd reason… its monthly competition results day!! Yoo hoo. In today’s episode, we speak to the highly qualified Dr Uday Balakrishnan who was involved in pulling children out of Child labour. His initiative was the largest across the world during that time. He explains to us, why education is that important and why we need to constantly learn and re-learn many things. He does mention that our generation would be facing a lot more challenges in terms of the changing weather and global warming and so, education plays all the more important role for us. But yes, he did mention that we should have an all round education by means of playing, trekking, watching movies etc. I just loved what he said as it makes total sense to me and I Hope it will to you too… Also, the winner of our October month’s competition is ‘Aadisha Kiran’. Please visit Instagram and see the winner. Thanks to Raghunandan Photography for being our judge. Thanks,
