What you do if your kid is missing from School?

We are sending our children to school to learn & improve discipline, mercy, knwoledge and social skill...etc. But now a days, School is concentrating only on knwoledge and very less percentage of other needed skills.
Normally,  School Teachers wait until parent or authorised driver picks up children. But it is applicable till 2nd Standard. After that, Student can go on his own to home after their school timings though parent / authorised driver available at school gate. Because most of the school managment thinks in similar fashion.

In one of school, 4th standard student waited for his Mother to show up at 245PM. But Mother reached at 3PM and she found her kid is not at the gate. She went inside classroom and found missing. She shocked and took help of class teacher and principal. They are trying to reach him via his friends parents, he is not with them at all. She caller her aprtment neighbours to call back if her kid shows up at house. No good news yet. She started crying and Class teacher also felt guilty and with tears. School managment informed to Police to track the missing kid.
Around 645PM, She got a call from her neighbour which brought some breath to her. Her neighbour confirmed that kid at her home and waiting for his house key. Finally kid told " You were not there on time and i waited 10 minutes and you did not show up; So i walked all the way to home". The distance between School and home is roughly 6KM.
The Big Question
What a will power this Kid has?
Whether Parent did not teach their kid about waiting time?
Or School dont have proper pick up and drop service?

It is mere communication gap and but it is not right thing. School and Parent has to wake up. Very expensive lesson.

What is the Difference Between Tortoise and Turtle?

Last weekend, we went to Guindy National Park. This park is one of the Abhinav Favorites and he loved going many times. This time we went with my Brother's family too. My brother's son Danush aged 1 year is very much interested to see all animals especially Peacocks. Abhinav started asking his questions. Park placed sign boards in English and Tamil, so i was happy enough to tell him all the facts. But there was no sign board for Jackal and Tortoise.
  1. What is Jackal called in Tamil?
  2. What is the difference between Tortoise and Turtle?
Finally Google helped me to translate Jackal means " குள்ளநரி"
Tortoise: Mostly Land Living and Live very longer. Its Shell is very hard
Turtle: Mostly Water Living and Live shorter than tortoise. Its shell is very light weight. Legs are web type for Swimming preference.

Abhinav's Questions

Lately, Abhinav started asking questions with mixing his subjects and we are awestruck.
Subject Question: Why there is no life in the Moon?
Subject Answer: There is no life in the moon because there is no air.
Abhinav question: Whether water is there in the Moon? 
Subject Question: What is the big one digit number?
Subject Answer:  9
Abhinav Question: Why not 9.5? 

Me and Abhinav were having discussion about something and suddenly topic changed to creation and Lord Brahma. And I told him that Lord Shiva chopped off fifth head of Lord Brahma due to his untruthful and his proud ness. 
Abhinav asked me " So Lord Shiva is more powerful than Lord Brahma?".
I replied yes and " Lord Shiva is supreme god and very powerful".
Abhinav asked " how Lord Shiva got his power? Who gave him the Power? ; The person / God who gave powers to Lord Shiva is " More Powerful".
I said " there no God above Lord Shiva". If any, then i don't know based on my knowledge level.
Abhinav quickly replied " Ask Google".
I said " Google don't know this things because Hinduism very complex".
Abhinav told " You said once Google can give any answers for any questions. Now you are saying it is not". He did not wait for my answer and started to his school.

Why Like This?

It is really difficult to teach present generation kids because of their IQ and their questioning skills. Especially Abhinav has extra ordinary questioning skills and he put me in mute most of the time. When i was teaching him about animals in Tamil, he asked me as below.
Goat         - ஆடு 
Goat Kid - ஆட்டுக்குட்டி  why not ஆடுக்குட்டி  ................
என்னால் பதில் சொல்ல முடியவில்லை. அது அப்படித்தான் என்று சொல்லிவிட்டேன்.

Dog Bite - First Aid and Treatment

Recently Abhinav became victim of dog bite and he is having fear of dogs now. Three weeks before, Abhinav was running on street and two dogs chased him and made some scratches in his thigh. Priya was insisting not to run on the street and enjoy the cycling. But young Abhinav always listens to his instinct and he became dog bite victim.
Since he was under shock of dog chase, he could not remember exactly whether dog bite him or scratched him by nails. Though it looks like scratch to me, But Doctor said to me below as it is old saying.
" Cat scratches ; Dog bites " -   " பூனை பிராண்டும்; நாய் கடிக்கும் "
Instead of waiting and doing research on how it happened, Doctor advised to go for three dose vaccination . He did get vaccination and he is happily roaming around and following his instincts gain.

Lets Make Engineering Simple

Imagine a world where education is perceived to be so interesting as a hobby, a world where understanding is spontaneous, instant LMESand perfect and a world where education is chosen voluntarily rather than as a forced duty. This world is neither an imagination anymore nor in a distant future but an eventual reality.
" This is the exact wording from LMES website. Link for the website  HERE ".
If somebody teaches you science in your Mother Tongue with Proper examples, Who will say no? Thats exactly available here.
  • Albert Einstein’s Theory of Relativity
  • World Without Triangles
  • Quantum mechanics plays a vital role in the navigation of migratory birds
  • The “Pi” has an important role in calculating the speed on your speedometer device
  • Do you have any idea how terrible nuclear disaster is?
  • The difference between science and engineering?
These are few examples which was very well explained in LMES. 
Hats off to you Mr. Premanand Sethurajan.
