Under the new plan, a student would have to take up three Indian languages listed in schedule VIII of the Constitution, one of which could be English. All three languages would be main subjects in the Class X board exams. Students can study a foreign language, or a non-listed Indian language, as an additional subject, which will be non-qualifying in nature.


According to a senior HRD official, even if the new plan is approved by the ministry and CBSE starts working on the scheme it would not "happen before 2019-20". "The present batches of students who are now in class VII will be able to appear in the board exam under the existing scheme and will not be burdened with learning a new language mid-way. The matter can be taken up by the CBSE governing body once it's finalised by the ministry later this year so that the scheme can be started," the official said. Read more

In Totagalu area of Jangamakote village in Chikkaballapura district, travelling after dusk is mostly forbidden for women and girls. Men also avoid stepping out of their home unless it's absolutely necessary. Reason: The area doesn't have a single streetlight. As crimes on streets were rampant, residents began thinking twice before stepping out. And that's when children decided to get things fixed. The route they took was simple: Makkala Gram Sabhas.


Children, their parents, anganwadi workers, supervisors from department of women and child development, auxiliary nurse midwives, teachers, police officers, school development and monitoring committee members, local NGO representatives and jurisdictional GP members are compulsorily required to be present at the sabhas. Children could raise any issue that affects their lives. Officials and panchayat members take note of the same and initiate action.

India continues to perform miserably on the Global Hunger Index ranking toward the very bottom. The key parameters taken into account for this ranking include under-nourished population, wasted and stunted children under 5 years of age. The numbers for India are pathetic on these counts: 'wasted children' about 15% and 'stunted children' about 39%. Students or children of teachers and parents reading this are likely the more fortunate ones. Yet if these fortunate children grow up without learning the value of food and importance of not wasting it, that would be a calamity too. Teach your children not to waste food. There are so many going hungry. Serve only as much as you need. Eat all you take for yourself. We simply cannot afford to not take this lesson.

Math has always been a hard subject for most of the kids, when Tarini Wilson, a maths teacher for 30 years, read about the Shanghai technique, in which a teacher breaks down the teaching of concepts and moves on only when every child in the class has understood, she was all ears.



"The fault is in the way we focus on exams when we teach and not on making the student fall in love with the subject," said Wilson, who teaches Class 7 students. "I'm trying to follow the Shanghai method, a buddy technique where students have two hours of lessons and then sit in pairs and work on sums together. It's fun and a great way of learning," she said.
