History of Kanak Vrindavan Temple, Jaipur

Temples at Kanak Vrindavan date back to 1713 AD when Maharajah Jai Singh II, founder of Jaipur ordered construction of a new temple for establishing deity of Lord Govind Dev ji which was moved from Govind Devji Temple in Vridavana in 1669 AD after Mughal emperor Aurangzeb issued orders to destroy Hindu temples across India. Vrindavana is the birth place of Lord Krishna, also famed for ISKON/ Hare Krishna movement.

Image result for oil painting of a hand holding  mirror
Silver’s signatured on my hair
And gold has filled my heart.
Wrinkles are here to stay forever, 
no creams can make them part.
The mirror tells new tales so pale 
that mornings make me shy!
The aging eyes shine bright n say
“Don’t ask the reason, Why?”
But sings my soul the songs so pure
the songs of love divine.
the sky seems eager to touch my dreams,
the earth reassures- you’re mine.
Such silky thoughts surround my being 
and softly whisper in ears,
“Just hold the tiny hand of a child
dispel her all fears!
Just take her angel face in your palm
 and peep into those little eyes,
You will see me holding the whole universe
And a life full of surprise!”
I know the reason of that hair 
so silvery why they shine?
the treasure trove of love they bring
to love all- all are mine!

October evening

The sun melted silently

And darkness grows like pain

I listened to my woes

And eyes couldn’t hold the rain.

Just when I sank in despair

You whispered in my ears

“Hold on to hope one more day

Life won’t cheat you my dear!”

I rose like smoke so vaguely

As if I was meant to dissolve

I felt my fist go tighter

And was filled with a new resolve.

This day will pass and so will

Many more that come

Though lost are dreams of mine

I will cling on to some.

Teaching Colours

The nature lures creatures to itself with the bait of attractive colours.The luscious mangoes,juicy apples, glistening cherries,ripened pears and brightness of oranges lures the birds in flight to take a break and perch upon the laden branches to taste the bounties of nature.The early schools sensed this phenomenon and created learning places which were rich with bright colours, pleasing infrastructure and had all the magnetism to draw the little newcomer to the school.
Presently all the schools take pride in their Preprimary section which wears the brightness of Venus and purity of Cupid in its decor.
Walls are painted, sometimes stories are depicted and very colour finds a place in the galleries of Preprimary.
The curriculum of preprimary secures a special place to teach the colours to little learners who find the world of colours most fascinating.
Traditional method:
It is a very common practice to show charts or books having different objects of the primary colours to children.Often the kids are given a colouring sheet to colour with same colour.Setting little hands at work we feel quite satisfied that we have taught the colour to our students.
It is a good idea to bring things into the classroom which are red in colour.
If the teacher brings a red ball, a red rose, tomato, red chilli, red bell pepper,an apple, cherries and a red powder(sindur) the children will find this more interesting than just coloring a sheet.This is called use of realia in classroom.
Using this method has been found to be more engaging and rewarding than just showing the color red in a book.
Years ago, while teaching yellow colour, one if my little angel chimed in an excited voice
“You are wearing yellow too.”
When I played Tippy Tippy Tap with my little team, many of them ran to me to touch ‘yellow’ to be in a safe zone.
Their laughter knew no bounds.They were thrilled that their teacher had worn that colour too.
Years later when I was fortunate enough to lead a team of dynamic and creative teachers in Preprimary, I floated the same idea to my team.
So we taught every colour with realia and the entire team coming dressed in the same colour on the day of introduction of that colour

Experiential learning is the best way of learning and the impact of the experience is quite long lasting.Taking the Ss out and asking them to identify where is red in the Display board or plants ,will engage the children  and bring an excitement in the classroom which will make them waiting for more.

Bringing closure to a lesson

On the same page

Bringing closure to a lesson connects what has just been learnt with both previous and future learning experiences, encourages student reflection on their work and progress, and provides invaluable information for formative assessment. The amount of time spent on lesson lead-ins and the variety of activities and strategies used to this end has often little to do with the time devoted to wrapping up a lesson, missing a meaningful learning opportunity altogether – and one that is notably crucial.

At its very simplest, asking the students a variety of questions on different aspects of the lesson or project, having them predict what the following lesson might be about, or just eliciting one-word responses from them, are all quick effective ways of closing a lesson. When time allows, cooperative strategies such as Think-Pair-Share or Numbered Heads Together will result in far richer responses by having students compare and analyse their thoughts…

Image result for KRISHNA FIGHTING

Just so big is your chaos

So little are my efforts

In this ocean of suffering

So fragile are our oars.

You want us to be righteous,

You want us to be true.

Then why you send us troubles

With each day that is new?

Man is becoming a beast

who lusts like one possessed

A beast that knows just needs

And leaves others oppressed.

 Then where are you my Krishna!

Once Draupadi  you had saved

Why can’t you hear the cries

Of Nirbhayas crushed and raped?

What are you waiting for Krishna?

What keeps you away from action?

Weren’t you the one who told Partha

Act ! delve in no depression!

We are waiting for your chakra,

We are waiting for your mace,

We are waiting for your justice

With our patience ,do keep pace.

Let not all daughters of India

Lose faith and feel orphaned

Give them the divinity of Durga

Let them be more strengthened.

Don’t wait any more O Krishna!

It’s time to right the wrongs

Reply to all our questions

 And answer our true calls  !

and answer our true calls!

A lot of people fail in life
As they have no dream
They are not loved by dear ones
Life is an aimless stream

A lot of people fail in life
As they have a broken heart
The words of society
Pierce them like a dart.

A lot of people fail in life
As no one motivates
They can still swim to the shore
If the tide of pain abates.

Just failing shouldn’t matter
As sunlight also fails
It cant remove all darkness
Hopelessness prevails.

But sun does always shine
No matter what may come
Such people should do their karma
And thank Him for all He has done.
