Yesterday was one of my friend's daughter's birthday but my friend was busy with her younger one's activities that the older one got upset! Quite a familiar situation in most households including ours! In all this tug-of-war, my other child, my blog is the easily sacrifice-able!

After many attempts to watch a meteor shower, atlast hit jackpot in December with the Gemind meteor shower! Though the happiness was short lived with all the horrible events in the following days! And I thought seeing shooting stars was good luck! 

It is 200 years since the publishing of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice! With the way, A1 devours books, though she is still stuck on mystery and magic, I am sure the day is not far away when both can discuss Darcy and Elizabeth! 

Hinglish Vinglish dekha but paarkanam Tanglish Vinglish! As part of vacation homework(!), A2 had to watch  "Children of heaven"!  It indeed was wonderful movie and true to the words of her teacher, "it beautifully emphasizes on sibling relationship, sharing, goal setting + determination and (above all) cherishing the little things in life"! IMO, It was a bit too much for 4-5 yr olds but it touched & affected me and A1. The movie helps with the things I am struggling to teach my kids in the land of plenty! A1's only peeve was the subtle ending!

Atlanta-la challenger school ellaam irukka?

Last visited 3 years ago. Heartbroken to find everyone grimly glued to their phone wherever they go. What happened to the city of friendly faces and voices I saw in 03-04? Planning a visit this year but unsure - when you go to a place out of fond memories but cant recreate its past, that feels like a huge letdown :)

I only know charter schools. Hearing about challenger schools for the first time!

Pch... ellaam avalodhaan! People, places all change. If possible, you change or follow gita... do your duty - visit ATL, without expectations!

Challenger is a kill-and-drill private school chain in the bay area, 90% of the school are indians.

Expectations are what make a place what it is :-(
