The Child City Magazine, an amazing book for curious minds

I love reading. But it’s not like that I always liked it. I am a late blooming book lover and started it thoroughly after I started working.  Now I do sensible reading and keep some hours of my day for reading only. I am also trying to make my 3-year-old a book lover and from now only. I get a lot of books for him and read them for him. As of now, most of the books are rhymes or story books because I feel, pictures and visuals can explain things in more cleaner and reasonable way. But my long term aim is to grow his interest towards books.

During my childhood, I had not had this luxury. My simple, common, middle-class parents, used to value course books more than the other kids' book. They wanted me to focus on my studies and books like History and Geography. Although I loved reading comics and other kids' books in my childhood, along with that, I found my big interest in history books as well. Thanks to them, I have a great understanding of Indian history. Howbeit, the summer vacation used to be different. We used to go to our village and for keeping their daughters entertained there, my father used to buy us many kids books. Nandan, Champak, Baal Hans, Panch Tantra Stories and comics as well.  Slowly I grew up and stopped reading such books as we also stopped going anywhere in vacations. The reason was the pressure of studies and my spirit of securing my rank in class.

Any ways, there is always something mesmerizing about childhood and we all love our childhood span the most. And when it comes to childhood books, we all get to remember the colorful and cartoon characters full books that used to be so interesting. Isn’t it?
Recently, I came across one such book that made me nostalgic. It is a kid magazine “The Child City”. I got it for winning a contest. From the cover page only, I had the feel of my childhood when I used to be crazy about such books. It was the first issue of this book that was sent to me and as I received it, we both, I and my husband, immediately got hooked on it. By the time I was making tea for him, my husband read the magazine. And then I looked through its content and concept. I must say I am impressed.

The Child City is a monthly child magazine that is available for the subscription now. The book has everything that can keep young minds consumed and entertained. The book is created with the aim of developing a fun filled way of cultivating reading habits in kids. The book also provides knowledge about the amazing things happening across the globe. Every issue of the book comes with stories and a few activities to try on. In every issue, readers will meet a beautiful group of kids called “Curious Squad” who are just like the other kids; curious, inquisitive and doers.  I loved reading their story and realized that “Curious Squad” can really inspire other kids for good work. The printing of the books is awesome. The illustrations, images, and designs are just so appropriate for kids.  There is another section in the book called “ROFL”.  They are jokes and funny riddles. Let me ask you one that I read there “Why did the teacher wear sunglasses?” No idea? Let me tell you then because her class was so bright 😃 . 



I would recommend this books for young kids who love to explore the world and are curious about trying new things. The books is a beautiful compilation of stories, GK notes, inspirational stories and fun filled activities. And as I said my favorite is “ROFL”. Good books always give the much-needed wisdom and peace of mind to everyone. And this holds true for kids as well. Good, inspirational and referable books can shape our kids in a positive way. The child City is one such book or magazine that can make our smart kids even smarter. Go for it.

My Monsoon Love Hate Love Story

Last year, almost the same time, I packed every belonging of mine and landed to a place which is close to my heart. With bag and baggage, my family moved from Delhi to Lucknow. It was monsoon time when I came here and thank god I witnessed a prosperous rain. Lucknow, though smaller compared to Delhi, is a place I distinguish since childhood. The city of Nawabs is believed as the happiest city in India. As our move was well calculated, my husband and I made sure to have all those things in our lives that I missed being in Delhi. A bigger house (that we can afford), green surroundings, street food access that we missed in Delhi and people who talk in our native tongue.

The Hate Story

I hated the rain when I was in Delhi. My house was in a busy lane of a crowded Delhi locality, and I was living on the second floor of the building. Hence neither I had easy access to the road, nor to terrace. When it rained, I was forced to stay inside. Roads used to get sunk even after the rain of half an…

A few questions to Halloween party people of India

Ugly pumpkins, ridiculous costumes and over-the-top makeup, trick or treating for kids and scary themed parties for the adults, the story of Halloween runs deeply in the Western culture. And these days I have been observing a flood of Halloween posts in my social media accounts . "10 ideas to celebrate Halloween with your kids..", "10 craft projects for Halloween..", "10 things to do at Halloween night.." There are parties happening for Halloween. Costumes are getting sold. Myriads of contests are posting spooky pictures and asking to share even more ghostly pictures. And amidst all this, I am puzzled, baffled and tickled.

I don't know if this is the notion of globalization or a modest thought to adopt cultures regardless of the geographical borders. Howbeit, I am sure about one thing that I hate the idea of kids celebrating Halloween here in India.

I have a few questions in my mind that I humbly want to ask those Halloween party people:
How you are p…

The Utopian World Of Smart Devices

I would like to start this post with telling readers my profession. I am a software professional who has a decade of experience in technology and software development. In those 10 years, I have very closely seen how technology has evolved. Of course, the first urge was the necessity that let every invention happen. And then technology got advanced to make the user experience better and further sound. In the chain of making every sort of experience pleasanter for users, the era of smart devices came. We all remember the time when smartphones came into the market. Before that, we had those dial phones and keypad mobiles. We were able to talk to the other party. But the progression of technology made it real to actually see with whom we talk. We still talk through phones but with added feel and warmth.

The Utopian World Of Smart Devices

Not only smartphones, but there has been an exponential increase in the number of smart devices around us in the last 5 years. When I first heard the ter…
