Hello everyone out there, I came back with my experiencing blog. But, this blog is not related to any societal issue or something like that. It is a momentous for me as I would be sharing my own experience of being with a pet and things related to him. It was the most mesmerised and memorable afternoon, when we suddenly decided to buy a black Labrador dog and keep him as a pet. We never experienced the love and affection of pets before. I am feeling so proud to share brief about my pet and his actions, likes, dislikes, etc. So, here the list starts:
My pet name is Marshal. He will be completing 9 years of his beautiful journey with us on 28th July 2020 and giving lots of cherishing memories to us.
*He looks so innocent but “only look” as with this cute, innocent , expression full face , he try his best to blackmail us emotionally and somewhat his idea gets successful too.
*His Love for Mango Kernels is too high. He loves to suck and enjoy the left over part with a little Mango pulp on it.
*He loves to play Rat-A-Tat that too in a cunning way. He tries to beat the opposite party. Running in a circle when at times we think to turn and run in an opposite way then, he too waits exactly at the opposite point and sees which will be our new direction of running behind him. As soon as we change our direction, he too changes it in a sec.
*He loves cashew and Almond more than us but will not feel hesitate to eat other dry Fruits too, if offered in a lovely way. Cool dude he is!!
*He is always ready to grasp the opportunity of going out, having fun time on roads and while observing himself heading towards home, he pulls his chain away which is a sign of saying “I want to take few more rounds, why you are taking me back so soon?” – “Holds an excellent sign language”
*In his presence, no one literally, no one can say anything in a loud voice with anyone, neither at home nor on phone call.
*Ohhhh!!!! How can I forget his love for Papaya? His love for papaya seems to be his everlasting love for this fruit. As soon as anyone in the family utters a word “PAPAYA”, even in the snoring sleep, he suddenly rushes to that person and doesn’t stop barking until he gets it. ( Papaya = natural cleanser = Reason for his beauty and cuteness)
*When someone comes after a long time and asks for hand shake, he gives such a shy look and then raises hand for it. I hope you people frame a picture of it and guess how mesmerised it would be.
I can go a long way writing about him and his actions but I will stop here and want you people to share your views and experience (if any) so that I can relate to it.
Few line for him:
Stay with us as long as your time is,
We are sure you will get an adorable life after this.
You carry a Majestic love in your eyes,
You are loyal, pure and wise.
Marshuu or Maau , we call you every time,
You are surely a piece to sublime.
We, the future generation and the part of this developing nation are severely being impacted by COVID-19 pandemic situation. This pandemic situation is largely affecting various up growing sectors followed by the education sector. This not only led to the loss of examination of primary, secondary students or Nursery school admissions but also made the students giving board exams or other competitive exams to suffer the major loss as these were to happen during the period of March and April. When No solution to this Pandemic was seen then government ordered to go for the E-learning concept. Due to this, another paradigm shift is seen in the educational pattern is that it has framed itself from a live classroom sessions to a live video calling sessions that is what we call as “Digital Technology”.
PROBLEMS BEING FACED DURING THE INITIAL STEP TOWARDS ONLINE CLASSES/EDUCATION:
As days are passing by, continue closure of all educational institutions will not only have an impact on the learning system of the country but ultimately be affecting nation’s economic development. Although the Ministry of Human Resource Development is ensuring the continuation of learning process via alternative measurements like E- Learning but it has yet not reached to a certain successful level Moreover it has become a challenging environment for teachers as well.
This is due to the following reasons:
Many parents are still there who cannot afford the price of a Smartphone. This involves students studying in government school and their parents are working on a lower wages.
We cannot assure all the parents to be educated enough to operate Smartphone’s to let their child have an E-learning class.
Teachers are not able to have proper look at the concept understanding ability criteria of a student.
Teachers are not able to monitor the student in terms of work completion, activeness of the child etc.
These above mentioned issues gives rise to the challenging step towards the change in the education pattern due to this pandemic. Thinking about that these challenges and not being able to move forward can lead to an increase an illiteracy rate and making the nation a backward one. So, we need to take few measurements and to frame certain changes in the pedagogy or teaching style which includes, learning pattern, syllabus etc. that can eventually help in upgrading the pandemic loss in the field of education.
A CHANGE IN THE FIELD OF EDUCATION:
However, the education system is really looking forward to have solutions to cope in this sector to work in tandem and improve in quality. Pedagogy in digital education is an important link between course content, teachers, students and technology to carry on the process of e-learning. This pedagogy to be successfully implemented, it must includes accurate teaching material, teachers – students interaction, internet connectivity, availability of laptops/palmtops/desktop, online software’s and other useful resources.
Going forward, the use of digital learning environment will lead to new era where excellent faculties will be available to provide with best education after gaining much experience time to time. If the suitable pedagogy will be implemented then surely that time is not too far when our nation will be leading a great step in terms of education pyramid with the help of best IT’s. This will have an advantage for the students going in other countries to have better education as in the upcoming settlement students will get everything locally.
PEDAGOGIES THAT CAN BE ADOPTED IN THE FIELD OF EDUCATION AFTER THE LOCKDOWN
In a T.V. interview on India Today, Anant Agarwal (founder & CEO of edX), was asked a question how future education will look like. Answering this question, he said learning in school and colleges will be very different after the Corona era ends. He said the kind of flexibility and self paced learning will enable a child to learn at his own speed is just incredibly powerful and blended learning (digital learning) will give you that. Moreover he said blended learning is not a new trend, it is a trend which will be accelerated in the upcoming future because of COVID-19 pandemic. From this statement we can derive that new pedagogy or teaching style will merely be much dependent on online sessions or simply on digital style.
One advantage of this is observed, according to the feedback of the teachers and students who are a part of online teaching learning process, it is observed that students are able to ask their doubts more frequently and freely as compared to the offline classroom teaching where they face number of students because of they sometimes lack confidence in asking questions freely. So, this too drives the education process towards the digital and an independent learning.
According to me, new pedagogy may involve more of a self learning approach and less dependent on spoon feeding by the faculty. Here, in this approach, students will find ways to have better learning experience by exploring their learning environment which is currently not upto the reach when a student is only coming to the class and going back home. This is also followed by students memorizing, replicating and then many forgets after the exams are over. But learning by doing or less dependent on the teacher will help students to have a long term approach about learning.
Adopting this free style practical approach will contribute a major part in the upcoming bright future of the nation. Though, practically thinking, it will not be as easy as it seems. Internet connection, Smartphone’s to support the applications for the same, and if the student can easily have an access to the Smartphone’s than the cost of data may be an expensive part and therefore can be a challenging one too. We can even think to overcome this data expensive issue by providing free access to internet only for using learning applications by students.
Another pedagogy that could be guessed is to minimize the strength of the students in a particular class to keep the check on social distancing. This would further be beneficial to keenly observe the performance of the particular student more accurately which will enhance teachers work over that particular weak part of the student by observing them as slow learner, or suffering with any other issue and ultimately giving rise to the intellectual level of the student. Teachers can make them learn using various other techniques which they could not learnt before.
Pedagogies for secondary, senior secondary and higher education may give up rise in the reduction of those subjects which are less essential for the student or we can assume the pedagogies to include the important subjects that would help students in their future or future jobs which can easily be studied in a digital manner or in a practical manner as well.
From the above few pedagogies, we can conclude that the education patterns will not be same as before. There will surely be certain changes to go with the flow of promoting education in a digital manner and other approaches that can be kept in view to provide a positive push towards it. These changes will bring out a new independent nation with well qualified nation builders.
यहाँ सबको सिर्फ धन-दौलत की भाषा समझ आती है, यहाँ की चिड़िया भी खरीद कर अनाज खाती है।इस शहर में माँ की बहुत याद आती है ।। यहाँ इमारतों की होड़ में सीमेंट में मिल गयी माटी है, यहाँ अमीरी-गरीबी के दृश्य भाँति-भाँति हैं। इस शहर में प्यारी माँ की बहुत याद आती है ।। […]माँ की याद
A must read hindi poetry written by my dearest friend. Do read and share your views and yess don’t forget to follow his new page and encourage him to come up with many more refreshing posts 😇☺️
In this blog, I thought to write about the most annoying taboo of our society i.e. Periods. How strange it seems, that the thing which is naturally given to us by the supreme power is considered as impure. I really appreciate the modernisation of the Indian culture, but no one can ignore the fact that despite of upgrading of social status here, there are many families who still consider it, a sign of impurity. In India, it’s the biggest taboo until date.
I remember, my maternal grandmother told me once that, when she was young and started to bleed, it was considered an auspicious ceremony and was celebrated with great joy and enthusiasm. In her time, it was a sign that a girl who starts to bleed timely, is reproductively healthy to carry on the generation after marriage. So, going back in her time, I start to think that when this natural process can be celebrated at that time, why can’t we even remove this taboo from our mind at present? When we can actually hope for the change in our thinking? When can we expect this society to be “the biggest taboo free zone”?
“ DON’T VISIT TEMPLES DURING MENSTRUATION”, “DON’T DISCUSS WITH OR GO CLOSE TO ANY MALE MEMBER YOU MEET” , “YOU HAVE GROWN UP NOW , START BEHAVING IN A BETTER WAY” , “KEEP SANITARY PADS HIDDEN AND CARRY THEM IN DARK POLYBAG WHEN YOU BUY THEM” so and so….
These are the instructions given in our Indian society when a girl starts to bleed and become reproductively capable of bearing a child in future. Some of these myths can be accepted but some are hard to implement. With the advancement of knowledge and social environment, things have really changed. Everyone gets aware about this biological process by class 7th or 8th. Moreover, there are special seminars conducted in the school premises regarding the same as well then, why society behaves in such a manner and tries to prevent youngsters from this natural fact?
When we bleed due to injury or wound, the society shows its sympathy but when we bleed naturally, the same society’s perceptions are changed. We neither need the sympathy here, nor the boycotting nature of the society. The society that stands on several genders, female being one of them, and it’s a truth with this gender that need acceptance. We need an open minded thinking, it’s not a crime, and we are not criminals that we need to step up for hiding a natural process. `
I would say the more we will hide, the more people will consider it a shameful act. Instead of considering it, a symbol of impurity, we should start discussing it openly and try to help in case of any problem, adding on to this; we must also engage ourselves in providing sex education to all our young ones. This will bring about a great change in the problems we suffer in our society such as growing population and other issues related to it. It is commonly observed, mothers don’t talk much about it with their daughters or slow down their voices as they feel shy discussing it and vice versa.
So, hereby concluding it, Menstruation should not be considered a taboo it’s a natural process and should be accepted openly by all. It’s high time now to change our narrow thinking and keep the broader view in mind that would help the upcoming generation to engage themselves openly in every stream of life which few of them may lack because of this taboo.
CHANGE YOUR NARROW VIEW
BREAK THIS TABOO
BE PROUD FOR WHAT YOU ARE
BE PROUD TO WITHSTAND THIS AND SAY
“YES, WE BLEED AND SUFFER,
AND WE ARE NOT ASHAMED TO SAY IT
THERE IS NOTHING TO HIDE,
WE ARE PURE INSIDE AND OUTSIDE“
Natural suffering can’t be considered as impurity by others.
