Build a Library for Aham Bhumika

IMC found out about Aham Bhumika via Twitter when they had tweeted about sending rural girls English -Hindi dictionaries. Aham Bhumika runs a support center called Mehak for rural children in a village at the outskirts of Bhopal (M.P.). They also support a few rural schools with clothes and stationery. They also impart training of embroidery work to a group of rural women and girls. Here is their Website, Twitter and Facebook. When we contacted them to ask how we can help, they told us about their project to stock up a library for rural children in  a village called Borda - Kolar Road, Bhopal. This is ...

Readers' Questions Regarding Books

This week we have two questions regarding books. Question 1:  It would be great you could suggest me some Tenali Raman and Akbar-Birbal books for kids age group 4-7. I know Amar Chitra Katha has some but its been long time and this time in India, I didn't do any book shopping so I have no clue. Let me know if you know any books.   Question 2:  When did you start reading to your baby? Which books did you start with? In English or in your mother tongue?? Featured image credit: Google images

Revival of the Good Old Birthday Parties

I have cribbed about how the birthday parties which R attended have been extravagant, almost like weddings or something, with a designer cake, location in a big hall like in weddings, a choice of some 20 dishes to choose from, a magician to entertain the kids, a hostess for the evening, a return gift which was more expensive than the gift we gave to the child etc etc. I was pretty disheartened about this fact thinking how kids now a days don't seem to enjoy small joys in life. But I must admit, of late, I have found that birthday parties ...

Why the New Femina Cover is not Bold

Femina’s new cover was touted as a bold image by one and all on Twitter. It had me totally baffled. It has Huma Qureshi standing behind a mannequin which has the words “I don’t owe you perfection! My body my rules”. But the whole image seems to state otherwise. First of all, was that mannequin supposed to be the “ideal” size for women? If Huma had not held the mannequin in front of her and the cover was just her, would we have even known she was not the ideal size by Femina’s standards of beauty. What was bold about A. hiding the fact that she could ...

Rotimatic - World's First Robotic Roti Maker

IMC talks to the Founders and views a Demo. Everyone who has heard of the Rotimatic probably watched and shared their viral video 6 months ago. When IMC was invited to view a Demo of the Rotimatic over Google Hangout, well, we were more than a bit excited and definitely very very curious. Pranoti Nagarkar, CTO and co-founder of Zimplistic, the company that makes Rotimatic, says she always wanted to be an inventor and comes from a family of engineers. She is the mechanical brains behind the product. She spent 6 years refining the product, surmounting many challenges from mechanical issues to chemical processes in the science and art of roti making. “Eating healthy ...

Book Review - Monday to Sunday by Sowmya Rajendran

  We got this book from an offer of five books from Tulika Books. I find Tulika books slightly more expensive lets say, compared to a Pratham books, but the quality and stories are amazing. Most Tulika books have amazing paper quality, superb stories and totally eye catching illustrations. In short, I am a big fan :) Monday to Sunday is a book about a boy Mani who thinks he is a different creature every day. Written by Sowmya Rajendran (better known as Gounderbrownie in the blog world and I am a BEEEG fan!) and illustrated by Pratik Ghosh, the book is a ...

The Parenting Jig..

... is never too easy. At every stage, there are challenges. Different ones, yet challenges they are! My children, have just passed the toddler stage and the biggest challenge these days is to make them independent. We had been on the go for a week or so, which made my daughter almost lose her habit of eating by herself. She was sick during our travel and with pampering grandparents around, she was fed during most part of the trip. Once we were back, she was still in the hangover of having been fed and she refused to eat by herself. The first ...
