Happy Happenings!

1st Place Winner: Srinidhi Suresh - Middle.


What could make you more happier than your child's achievements?!! That which makes you far happier than the enormity..... Yes , I would like to share one such incident with you all. I'm sure everyone is aware of the competition called Spelling Bee. I love spelling competitions and have always had a feeling that they should have had a competition for it, during my school days. Unfortunately they did not have one in my school (during my school days, back in India).

Anyways, the movie 'Akeelah and the Bee' is one of my favourite movies. If you like spellings, English grammar/vocabulary and origin of words, you’ll really love that movie.

Coming to the point, I got an email from my Cousin Sister today, that her daughter Srinidhi( 5th Grade), has won the first place, in Spelling Bee contest at her school . Immediately i called my sister and congratulated her. I could sense her voice starting to streak with tears that contains a mixture of happiness, proud and humble emotions. Ah! There's great satisfaction in experiencing a daughter's success. I have normally seen parents to be too pushy to make their kids study well and score good grades, but some kids could only make it up to a certain point. Where as in some case, the parents might be ignorant or less educated to even teach their kids, but the kids will study so well on their own. It is so rare to happen that a super smart kid could get a super coach Mom like my Sister & her daughter. Good luck to Srinidhi and the other kids. And thanks to my Sister for sharing her daughter's pictures.

Dear Friends,
When I started to write my blog (about 10 months ago) I had no idea what direction my writing would take. But through all your critiques for my posts ,i learnt that i have earned some good friends around.
I wanted to use this opportunity to commemorate by saying thank you to all of you who have taken the time out to send me feedback on my articles.Especially on this one, on behalf of my my sister and her daughter for all your compliments and encouragement.
I am enjoying the journey. And I would appreciate your continuous support.
