IWS Gurgaon saw parents thronging for an outbound and inauguration of the Indus Cricket Academy. Ace spinner and erstwhile captain of Indian Cricket Team Bishen Singh Bedi, Dhronacharya awardee chief-coach Sunita Sharma and coach Kasturbha (KN Bhatt) were in the thick of action.

Every parent was seen challenging oneself by doing many an activity like flying fox, river crossing, rappling and rockclimbing for the first time in their life. They were thrilled to push the boundaries. One of the mothers was heard saying, “I never participated pro-actively in sports, forget about winning awards. I really loved being here and realized what I can do. I am going to be a regular here.” True to the byword of IWS, it is a journey of ‘Discovery Self’.

“Sports coaching and playing is to inculcate values to children right from childhood and not necessarily to make them star cricketers. If your child becomes one, there is an added reason to celebrate”, said Bedi. “Bringing up a child is like a ‘Tapasya’ and you and I are ‘Tapasvi’, knowingly or unknowingly’, said Bishan. He was addressing the parents at Indus World School at the end of a half day outbound training program for parents that included Rock climbing, rappelling, river crossing and flying fox kind of activities to include parents in physical education and imbibing a culture of sports in the family.

Sunita Sharma, the only woman coach to have ever won the Dronacharya award, exhorted the parents to enjoy the process of parenting and not put pressure on the child or themselves for quick results. Ms Sharma also encouraged mothers to introduce girl children to the field of sports actively which was well received by all parents.

The coaching facility will be run by Coach KN Bhatt, a former Delhi and North Zone player coached under Bishan Bedi and Sunita Sharma. Bhatt has played in VIjay Merchant, vijay Hazare, Rohinton Baria and Cooch Behar tournaments. The coaching is open to children in the age group of under 16 and open on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. Parents too are welcome to join the coaching program, according to Bhatt Sir.

Indus World school is a chain of over 14 schools across India including Gurgaon, Indore, Hyderabad, Aurangabad, Raipur etc., and is a part of Career Launcher, leading education company with interests in coaching, vocational training, education publishing and k12 schools.

Daddy, I have $100 now. Can I ……?

This is a very interesting mail I received from a dear friend Rakesh Dasmana. I just thought of sharing with all those who have kids around them…
—————————————————————
SON: “Daddy, may I ask you a question?”
DAD: “Yeah sure, what is it?”
SON: “Daddy, how much do you make an hour?”
DAD: “That’s none of your business. Why do you ask such a thing?”
SON: “I just want to know. Please tell me, how much do you make an hour?”
DAD: “If you must know, I make $100 an hour.”
SON: “Oh! (With his head down).
SON: “Daddy, may I please borrow $50?”
The father was furious.
DAD: “If the only reason you asked that is so you can borrow some money to buy a silly toy or some other nonsense, then you march yourself straight to your room and go to bed. Think about why you are being so selfish. I work hard everyday for such this childish behavior.”

The little boy quietly went to his room and shut the door.
The man sat down and started to get even angrier about the little boy’s questions. How dare he ask such questions only to get some money?
After about an hour or so, the man had calmed down, and started to think:
Maybe there was something he really needed to buy with that $ 50 and he really didn’t ask for money very often. The man went to the door of the little boy’s room and opened the door.

DAD: “Are you asleep, son?”

SON: “No daddy, I’m awake”.
DAD: “I’ve been thinking, maybe I was too hard on you earlier. It’s been a long day and I took out my aggravation on you. Here’s the $50 you asked for.”

The little boy sat straight up, smiling.
SON: “Oh, thank you daddy!”
Then, reaching under his pillow he pulled out some crumpled up bills. The man saw that the boy already had money, started to get angry again. The little boy slowly counted out his money, and then looked up at his father.

DAD: “Why do you want more money if you already have some?”

SON: “Because I didn’t have enough, but now I do.

“Daddy, I have $100 now. Can I buy an hour of your time? Please come home early tomorrow. I would like to have dinner with you.”
The father was crushed. He put his arms around his little son, and he begged for his forgiveness.

Hold me, Cuddle me

Hold me, Cuddle me

It’s just a short reminder to all of you working so hard in life. We should not let time slip through our fingers without having spent some time with those who really matter to us, those close to our hearts. Do remember to share that $100 worth of your time with someone you love? If we die tomorrow, the company that we are working for could easily replace us in a matter of days. But the family and friends we leave behind will feel the loss for the rest of their lives. And come to think of it, we pour ourselves more into work than to our family

If I have a son….: Mahima Saigal

A good friend of mine, Mahima, an avid dancer and trained actress from NY, is very good at expressing her deep thoughts in the form of poetry. I found her expression of anguish translating into this thought provoking verses – If I have son… – a very meaningful one for all.

If I have a son

there are many things

I will make him learn

 

I’ll remind him I’m tougher than his father

For it’s a fact well known that women are

emotionally and mentally much more stronger

 

The power to give birth rests only with us women

It requires this overwhelming courage and stamina

which no man on God’s Green Earth could summon.

If I have a son…

 

I’ll teach him about the laws of nature,

the vital role of women; their functions and

how we are not some poor submissive creature

 

If I have a son I’ll teach him how to be a respectful boy

I’ll buy him gifts and items butwill

warn him that a girl can never ever be his Toy

 

If I have a son I’ll tell him; there are limits to your fun

He’ll be given lessons on chivalry, courtesy. Plus

Respect for Women will be central to his education

 

I’ll warn him never to ogle, jeer and stare

Because if he’s caught doing so

I’ll guarantee his entry into the intensive care

 

I’ll set some rules and regulations for him to follow

I would rather be a Hitler Mom

than let my son be the reason behind a girl’s sorrow

 

If I have a son

I’ll ensure words that degrade or insult women

are eliminated and exhumed from his lexicon

 

I shall refrain myself from treating him like a King

and will try my level best to keep his ears away

from the satanic verses of Mr. Honey Singh

 

I’ll teach him- ‘You must never make a girl cry,

A girl can be shy sometimes but if she says NO to you

you better not turn belligerent and ruthlessly ask her why.

 

Most of all I’ll teach my son to be a good human being

the one who considers women as equals, respects them

and is unlike the monsters the world is currently seeing.

 

Indus Learning Series – Discovering and Nurturing Potential

WEBINAR : OCTOBER 17, 2012; 9pm – Register by pasting the link

Indus World School is a learning space, as much for teachers and parents as is for children. While Children blossom through the academic curriculum with sports and arts integral to their learning environment, the mentors learn by creating lesson plans, applying, observing, introspecting, practicing and enhancing their thought processes every day at school. Then, how and what do parents learn at this school?

Enriched families contribute to enlightened children. We endeavor to facilitate parents and families through our INDUS LEARNING SERIES.

Vast amount of research has been done worldwide in areas of child psychology and effective parenting, and only a speck of it gets translated into practice. Parenting is a sensitive and complicated issue, and many parents of today’s times realize this very well. Furthermore, they are also mindful about being supportive and caring to their children, and wanting to learn more about conscious parenting. I am sure you are one too.

Indus World School wishes to be a facilitator in this learning goal of parents, and in turn facilitate in bringing up emotionally, socially, intellectually, physically, spiritually healthy children of this country.

On a regular basis, as part of INDUS LEARNING SERIES, 120-minute parent-workshops are integral to the journey at Indus World School. These workshops are on a wide range of topics of general interest and relevance to parents of children from all age groups, and sometimes specifically for a particular age group.

Here, we offer the next workshop in the series with an introduction to multiple-intelligence, that would help you discover and nurture the potentials of your child.

Workshop : Find a winner in your child

“The essence of intelligence is skill in extracting meaning from everyday experience”
~ Unknown

Workshop Goals

•Understanding the concept of Multiple Intelligence
•Finding out the different kinds of potentials your child has
•Knowing how to further nurture your child’s potentials

Workshop Outline

For ages, ‘intelligence’ of a child has been measured by the grades, ranks and marks scored in school exams. Many parents reprimand or give up on their children who do not stand up to this yardstick. Hence, these children may remain denied of opportunities and encouragement by their adults. Such children usually may find it difficult to build confidence, self-awareness and self-esteem.

The reality is that there are multiple intelligences and infinite potential that each person possesses. Thus, every child is ‘intelligent’ in his/her own way.

You, as parents, would be doing a lot of good to your children by being aware of what potentials your child has, and how to nurture them in those areas so that they could make use of the right opportunities in their lives. Yes, it is important for you to know your child’s potentials, to be able to contribute positively to their rounded development. Help your child be a winner. Come, together we will make it happen.
