A preference for the male child is promoted by the cultural, economic and social thinking in India. Even indulging in illegal activities and breaking the law is an acceptable practice among Indian families to fulfil that desire for a male child. As a result, the sex ratio, i.e., the number of females per 1000 males, has fallen over the years. Therefore, discrimination against the girl child has become a serious social problem in most Indian states.

The discrimination against girls begins in t…

The long-term consequences of the lack of exposure to the natural environment can be negative. Children who don’t experience outdoor learning may be less cooperative, less flexible in their attitudes, and have lower self-awareness than those who do.

Learning becomes meaningful when it is attuned to the needs, goals and strengths of a learner and he/she is at the helm of the learning process. However, that does not mean the isolation of the learner from the peers and teachers in the classroom in particular and the outside world in general. The learner needs to realise that individual learning goals fit within and are advanced through collaboration and engagement. A learner needs to  explore and critically understand his/her own world in clo…

The Health Ministry has decided to provide peer education to adolescents through adolescent peer educators, who will be called ‘saathiya.’ The resource material prepared for them, which was released by the health Secretary C K Mishra on 20th February, seems greatly progressive considering that issues like sex and sexuality, gender and gender roles are still sensitive topics in India.
