Lockdown Ganesh Chaturthi

Festivals always meant shopping for me. Only the items I shop for will differ. I think it’s true for everyone of us. Already Tamil New Year came during pandemic. Complete lockdown was in place. I could not shop much. Just managed to celebrate with whatever I had. But when Ganesh Chaturthi approached and could not see any relief in Covid 19 situation, I was upset. Because every Ganesh Chaturthi was celebrated by us for all 10 days. The festival shopping starts with buying of Ganesha. I always prefer eco friendly Ganesha made of mud bought from a particular shop which is few km away from my place. This year I was wondering where to go for the same. I didn’t want to risk going out and ...Read More

New Policy of Education-2020 : Part 3

Restructuring school curriculum & Pedagogy in a new design Curriculum refers to the lessons and academic content taught in a school or in a specific course or program. Pedagogy refers to the method and practice of teaching.

New Policy of Education-2020 : Part 2

In my previous post I had restricted myself to ECCE being introduced as part of NPE2020: Its importance and the details as per the policy. In this part I thought I will address the next important aspect of the policy i.e. curtailing Dropout Rates and Ensuring Universal Access to Education at All Levels. India’s near universal enrolment in school through initiatives like Sarva Shikha Abhiyan and the Right to Education hides two major challenges of school education: High dropout and Low attendance. Children dropping out or not attending school results in loss in productivity of the education system and reduces human resource development. Dropouts are likely to be engaged in semi-skilled ...Read More
