Childhood Chapters

Childhood Chapters




As we keep on unfolding the different chapters in life we realized the importance of stories listened and read in childhood. They have built our moral character and have taught many lessons we didn't notice then but observes their importance today when we are grown up. In childhood we learn everything by heart that's why impressions of them remain there forever in us. I too have listened and read many stories such as 'The Rabbit and The Tortoise' , The Sour Grapes, The Thirsty Crow, The Goose That Laid Golden Eggs, The Lion and The Mouse,etc and I am sure that all of you have also read or listened them in your childhood and by just mentioning their name I have recalled you the morals behind them.

Today T- Series have made these stories along with many nursery rhymes into beautiful animation videos. Children like cartoons, teaching with such animations would be a fun activity for the parents. The Tia and Tofu characters used in narrating stories are very likable and Tulsi Kumar's voice is soothing and lovable for children. Out of above mentioned stories The Thirsty Crow and The Goose That Laid Golden Eggs are stories with which I can associate few things of my childhood.




The Thirsty Crow or The Clever Crow teaches us that if you think and work hard nothing is impossible. When I was in class 2 ,while playing cricket our ball fell into a deep hole in our colony park made by iron rod used to erect tents for marriages or such occasions. When our small hands didn't reach the ball I put water in the hole and ball comes up all thanks to this story. Even today I never lose hope in any situation and tries to find the solution for the same.




The Goose That Laid Golden Eggs teaches us two things don't act in haste and don't be greedy. I remembered once when I was a kid I told this story to one of my friend who was keen to grab all chocolates from another friend who brought them to distribute on his birthday, but sadly he didn't listen. The birthday boy complained to the teacher and she told to distribute chocolates among the class except to him who tried to snatch them. Although he gave one to him after the class. Now I think it is the moral attached to this story which made me retold this when I saw someone acting greedy. I told such story to my nephews and nieces and they listened them with full attention. I hope they will also remember them when required.

I am thinking to show these videos to them now because visual images stays longer in our minds and leaves stronger impressions than verbal images.

Bitter Bread

Bitter Bread
Bread,doubleroti,pao,bun or we call it with any other name; it is the part of our breakfast which completes our daily routine. This ready to eat item is popular with egg and butter but the recent study by Centre For Science and Environment (CSE) have turned this must breakfast eatable bitter. 
CSE conducted test on various samples collected from different part of the capital belonging to different brands. They found 84% samples test positive for potassium bromate and potassium iodate after tests on 38 varieties which include Britannia,Harvest Gold,KFC, McDonalds, Domino's Pizza and Subway. These revelations are shocking and disturbing as all of us have eaten from one of these brands. It should also be noted that these two substances which are used to soften breads and enhance their color and texture namely potassium bromate and potassium iodate are banned in many countries of the world after a study conducted in the 90's. These substances however are not harmful a…

The Masked Life

The Masked Life


I met with an accident few years back (precisely 10 years ago). It was dangerous and I came out of hospital in about ten days. Except a foot injury which needed dressing every week for around a year I was alright. But that what I and my family thought but as I few days past I realized problems of sore throat, running nose, itching eyes which were watering and initially it was difficult to even face a bright light. I was diagnosed with allergy from almost anything cold water, wind, dust, etc which increases in changing season. Doctor advised me to spend most time in homes and medicines were provided to control the allergy. It cured with time and now I only take single tablet daily to control my allergy. The doctor said to take it only when allergy symptoms appear but they comes out when I stop taking medicine. Now while researching about indoor air pollution I found what force me to take that tablet continuously even when I am mostly home-bound. 
We can avoid Indoor ai…

RIP Tom Alter
I am sure those who grew up in nineties are not unfamiliar with his name. Like many I also has his first image in my mind is of 'British Raj Ka Writer' in Doordarshan serial 'Zabaan Sambhaal Ke' where he played an Englishman writer who is learning Hindi. He was impressive in that role along with the other's worked in it. I later saw him in films like Charas, Karma, Kranti and films like that where he has played bad characters of Firangi (foreign) officer. He played these negative characters impressively and when you compare them with his comic role in Zabaan Sambhalke you will know his acting proves. 
I also remembered him as Mahaguru in popular superhero serial Shaktimaan but what inspired me about him later on in my life was his command on Hindi and Urdu. He recite shayaris and ghazals beautifully. I have seen performing him many time on television. I also knew he was a great theater actor but never got any chance to see him live on stage. His ghaz…
