SURABHI’S ENGLISH CLASSES

There are people who love to read, there are those who cultivate (develop) the habit of reading and then there are some for whom reading is akin (similar) to a lullaby (soothing song, which puts a child to sleep). When these people start reading, they slip (fall) into a dreamless sleep. Whichever category we may

BEING POTTY TRAINED

Good morning! A social networking site like Facebook is great as far as interacting with long lost friends go — meeting childhood friends, colleagues whom you had lost touch with, getting to know new and interesting people… Undoubtedly, a great method of spreading awareness and building liaisons; however, just like a child should not be

The need for soft skills training

With the changing times, the face of the corporate world is also changing, wherein the need-of-the-hour is to have state-of-the-art professionals who are agile enough to meet the growing demands of the industry.

The Temple Bells

Hi, there! It’s a lovely morning, the sounds of temple bells ringing somewhere… harbinger (indication, omen) of hope and a promise of good things to come- by… that was my Facebook status yesterday, but morning today is equally good, if not better.

Yesterday, I appreciated a pretty girl for her looks, “You are very pretty” and this is what she had

EXTRAORDINARY ENGLISH TEACHER – DR. AMINA AMIN

Good morning! The title is not my own, I’ve taken it from Ms. Manisha Shah’s (a colleague and a friend) article. She’d used it in French ‘La Extraordinaire’. It was Manisha who told me about the demise of this very venerable professor, Dr. Amina Amin. It was not the news that shattered me; I was

SORRY FOR THE INCONVENIENCE

Good morning! In the past two days, I have had the fortune to interact four times with the customer care executives of various service providers. I said ‘fortune’ for I got yet another topic to discuss with you all; that’s the only reason- as for the interaction with the customer care personnel—the less said, the
