Gearing Up for the New Normal

“If you are always trying to be Normal, you will never know how amazing you can be!” Mary Angelou

And that is the perspective all of us need to take amidst these unprecedented times!

Too much has already been said and written about the pandemic and that seems to be the only thing people around seem to have to discuss. Time now to move on.

The “New Normal” as it has now been popularly christened is just another phase in all our lives. History of humankind has shown us how we have come through adversities, evolving and developing into a stronger and more resilient species. 

And so shall we through this pandemic as well.

Parents are concerned, and rightfully so, about the health and safety of their children as talks of opening schools in a month’s time is hitting the headlines. School authorities are concerned and anxious as well. Where one set of adults are worried about how safe it will be, the other set are working hard detailing out every aspect of how to ensure this level of safety and hygiene.

It is a new way of life, and not fearsome danger, that awaits us outside the quarantined walls of our homes. How long are we going to keep our children within the confines of our homes? The longer we take to open our doors, the stronger the fear becomes. Rightfully said, the phrase “social distancing” meant just physical distancing, not a complete stop to social interactions. Humans are social animals and socialising is a very crucial and integral part of our growth and development.

It is time to sit down and have a matter-of-fact discussion at home, with adults and children alike, and prepare with courage and conviction that the time to fight this situation has finally arrived. There is no point in putting it off. Follow the rules and precautions and life can carry on with a certain amount of old normalcy. 

Encouraging news and statistics are being shared which augurs a light at the end of the tunnel. The vaccine will be here, how soon is not known, but that it will be here, is now no longer just speculation. 

For the last six months, everyone across the globe has been talking of the lockdown, COVID-19 rules and precautions and the statistics attached to the pandemic. It is now time to look at how each one of us can work towards “flattening the curve”. 

When schools open up, rest assured that all necessary precautions have been taken to ensure that the physical spaces have been sanitized as per the highest standards. Schedules created for the students who come to school have been carefully created and planned, so as to ensure that no risks are taken. Channels of communication are open and ready to address any and every concern parents may have regarding this.

The bottom line here…… Now is the time to display the strength of the three-way handshake that the SHRI Family has always been so vocal about. Let us all come together to enable the return of normalcy in the lives of our little ones and young children. When they look back 20 years from now, let them remember 2020 as the year they saw their families, friends, teachers and caregivers at school come together as a united force to help them sail through with courage, conviction, commitment and collaboration.

Indian Education Sector Needs a Relook

Indian Education Sector needs a relook


The growth of a country is synonymous with the growth of its youth.

The youth defines the path of growth for any country. They need proper education, So the youth of the country needs to be looked after properly.

A country like India, where over 50 percent of the 1.3billion population is youth, the care for youth becomes mandatory.

Yet, the question arises, are we doing enough for them? Are we taking care of their growing requirements too?

Well, the answer is no! No, we are not taking good care of our youth. Their health, education, etc. are not being taken care of adequately. We are not doing enough to get them ready for the future.

Our education system is based on thoughts of – “Monitoring – Inspection- Suspension.” This needs to be changed to “Enable- Empower- Inspire.”

Over the last century or so, the Indian education system is still the same in its thoughts. Indian teaching methodology has not changed much since the industrial age. Our education system calls for reforms, which will make it apt for future generations.

These reforms should be based on the rigorous sample-based learning & assessment of children. Reforms should aim to develop their skills to make them ready for the future.

As Plato said, ‘Do not train a child to learn by force or harshness; but direct them to it by what amuses their minds, so that you may be better able to discover with accuracy the peculiar bent of the genius of each.’

Education must reflect the transformational changes in our life – the way we communicate, collaborate, think, work, network, and celebrate. This change will come when we make changes in our thoughts. These changes are possible only when you let edupreneurs grow.
