Exploring

When my daughter, Asawari was 10yrs old, she showed potential in art and dance. I was in a hurry to reach somewhere, to achieve, to concur that talent…we put her in art and dance classes. She learnt but she didn’t explore. I didn’t understand then.

Thinking Skills - Observation

 Celebrating "thinking skills Observation" this week.  What is this? How is this different from "seeing or just observing"? How do we develop the thinking of observation? Observation is not limited to visual sense - its a way to think.
