MY MEMORIES OF THE JUNGLE BOOK


We have all grown up watching Cartoons.

Cartoons like the Mickey Mouse, Donald duck, Chip and Dale, Duck tales, Snow Queen, Gummy bears, The Jungle book, etc have entertained us when we were kids and still hold a place close to our heart. Duck tales and Jungle book are my personal favourites and as far as I remember, I never missed even a single episode of them.

Now there are plenty of cartoons and cartoon channels and I like watching Doraemon and Chota Bheem, but I think those days the cartoons had that certain charm and charisma to them that literally glued to us to our television sets. We used to literally cry if we missed even a single episode.

When I was in school, I remember watching The Jungle book in the evenings and I would finish all my homework before hand so that my mother would not ask me to switch off the TV. The moment the Jungle book song would start, everything would be put down and I and my brother would gather in front of the TV.

Jungle jungle baath chali hai,
pata chala hai,
chaddi pehan ke phool khila hai
phool khila hai

We were transported to the Jungle world where drama, suspense, fun, laughter and fear kept us glued to our seats.

During exam time, I used to schedule my break during the show so that I could relax and yet not miss an episode. Now we can catch all the missed episodes of our favorite shows on YouTube, but back then, an episode gone was gone as there was no re-telecast. If there was a cable problem in a house, the kids would go to their neighbors’ house to watch the show. It kind of bonded people together and taught kids compassion, friendship, bravery and standing up against all odds.

I personally loved the climax part that is the fight between Mowgli and Sher Khan the most.

It was after watching the show that I grabbed a copy of the book by author Rudyard Kipling and was able to understand how the makers had wonderfully visualized his excellent writing to create magic on screen.

The new trailer of the latest Jungle book movie is out and I cannot wait to watch the magic of The Jungle Book come alive again on screen. Check this trailer out and I am sure you would not want to miss the movie.

MY DREAM

“ The dream is not that you see in sleep, dream is which does not let you sleep ” – Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam. How true and how deep is this quote from the great scientist and former president of India, Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam. We all dream while we are asleep but the real dream – the dream which you wish to fulfill – the dream in which you have set your hearts on – will not “let you sleep”. When I was a kid, whenever someone asked me as to what I wish to become, I would say “I wish to become a doctor”. As I grew up, my interests and goals started to differ, from doctor, it shifted to becoming an Engineer or a teacher.  After completing school, I was really confused as to what I really wished to become. My father and teachers at school suggested that I take up a degree course and go on to do masters. This would help me in taking up teaching as a profession. I was academically good but shy and timid. I would get goose bumbs even on standing in front of my own class

STORY FROM THE LITTLE ONE

Stories are an integral part of my life. I often tell my daughter stories during meal times to keep her glued to her seat. The idea of story telling came as she used to run here and there while eating making me run behind her every time to feed her a spoon of food. Thus feeding her had become a difficult task for me and finally I decided to put an end to it by engaging her with small stories. The idea clicked and she started asking me to tell her stories every time during her meals. Every day objects, things that she saw became subject of my story and in this way through stories, I started teaching her new things and passing information to her about birds, animals, vegetables, etc making meal times playful and interesting. This took away a huge burden from my shoulders as she would get engrossed with the stories and eat without much fuss. I also started buying educational toys and looking for new objects and things in my home to keep her occupied. The objects and cr

SHARE THE LOAD

The world in which we live today has evolved and several changes have taken place. Earlier men used to go to work and women would stay indoors and do household works. At that time to some extent the work was equally divided between men and women. But in these modern times, woman too have become independent and have joined the workforce. Many men too are happy with this change and have welcomed it with open arms. But one thing that has not changed is their thinking. While they are happy to see woman as an independent and earning member, they fail to understand that the responsibility and workload on woman has now doubled. They not only have to look after their office work but also household work. Isn't it then the responsibility of the men to take active part in doing household chores so that the work gets balanced between the two.   A recent survey conducted by third party for Ariel has found that most households feel that doing household chores especially laundry is a woman&#
