The world has shrunk and it has become quite common to see parents sending off children abroad for studies. Many things occupy the thoughts of parents right from the environment, academics, living conditions and the list can go on and on. The other concept much talked about in recent times is home schooling.

For many our law or rights are just lessons learnt in school with no relation to everyday life. Reporting of Sexual violence should be done for three major reasons –
Stand-up comedy, we hear more these days made me contemplate on the nuances and the personality of the comedian and this understanding prompted me to write a post on it. Public speaking is an art and being a comedian is another form that has some many finer elements to it. Standup-Comedy is combining both to bring the best out of them. I saw couple of performances and the thing that impressed me the most is the timing. I came back home and tried to deliver the same to my family but then I realized how difficult it was. I was baffled when my daughter asked me what I was trying to convey with such a serious face, let me tell you, I was aghast. I remember enjoying every bit but I could only recollect only one or two.
