The Child City - September Issue Highlights


So, September issue of The Child City magazine is here. For those who don't know about The Child City, I am going to introduce you all with this amazing kiddie magazine. The Child City is a monthly child magazine that is available for the subscription. 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.

Have a look at the index of September issue :


Isn't it interesting? Last month we all witnessed a full solar eclipse. Although it didn't happen in India but thanks to the internet, many of us saw it live on twitter and other social media platforms. This issue has a dedicated post about the solar eclipse. Kids can read and understand why eclipse happens and many other interesting things around the eclipse. Next thing that I liked most in this issue is the introduction of the new currency; that is new 200 rupee note. The magazine has a column for this new note's launch. The government has introduced a new bright yellow colored note for 200 rupees. If you don't know who is RBI governor then you, along with your kids, should check the latest notes. Every note has the signature of RBI governor. 

Kids love stories and keeping this in mind, this magazine again has a wonderful story "The invisible king of the jungle". And don't guess that it is a lion story, this is completely different and new. As I already stated that the magazine comes loaded with interesting facts and information, September issue's "Records & Discoveries"  section is well articulated to give ample of recent knowledge to the kids. "Trivia Bytes" is another full of knowledge page. Then we also have new riddles this time and new English words (word power) for kids to understand and use. Also, my favorite ROFL is there as always. Let me share with you a joke of ROFL section 


A sardarji goes to a hotel and eats heartily. After eating he goes to wash his hands but starts washing the basin instead. The manager comes running and asks him, “Prahji, aap kya kar rahe ho?” To this sardarji replies, “oye, tumne hi to idhar board lagaya hai, Wash Basin”


Now, two, the most important things that are mentioned in the magazine :


1. Teacher's Day: Yes, September comes with this special day when we all say thank you to our teachers. So the issue has a dedicated page for teachers day.


2. World Car Free Day: Do you know that Every year on or around 22 September, people from around the world get together in the streets, intersections, and neighborhood blocks to remind the world that we don’t have to accept our car-dominated society. I never knew this. More details, you can find in the issue.


See, in my post only, I am sharing many such things which are cutting edge and very beneficial for kids. And don't forget, every issue of The Child City magazine has an activity for kids to perform and to learn something new. So, go get the copy of The Child City magazine. I am sure your kids would love 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…

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…

The Tradition of Respecting and Celebrating Food

This post is for #BharatKaZaika is a blogging event conducted by #BlogBoosterIndia. 

A story to begin with

After winning the great battle of kurukshetra, Yudhisthira was now king of Hastinapur. And then one day, all of sudden Krishna went to Yudhishithira and started saying in urgency "dadasvannam dadasvannam dadasvannam yudhisthira (“Give food! Give food! Give food! Yudhisthira). As the great battle had affected everyone in the country, food was the first way to start giving relief to the suffering countrymen.  As suggested by Krishna, yudhisthira then organized the great asvamedha-yajna. Mahabharata records an extraordinary celebration of distributing food as a part of the sacred year-long rites and rituals.

Our food heritage

You see, In our country, there is a tradition of respecting and celebrating food. The spirit of classical Indian civilization guided that primary duty of the king is to ensure that none within his domain suffers from hunger. Hence the king ensured that people…
