Had an interesting week! Interviewed an amazing educationist Swati Popat and had such fun. Swati Popat is an amazing woman who has been teaching for over 25 years and is the President of the Podar Education network. She is the author of two books on teaching and runs a kindergarten for autistic kids and also is the brain behind the intriguing and innovative open book model! She was so easy to speak to! Concise and straightforward, she spoke with the detached sense of calm which only few can pull off without seeming snobby! As a pioneer in the field of education she minced no words and was amazingly patient with a tryo like myself!
Also what’s with the media and Varun Gandhi? Seriously guys, give it a break! The three English channels are the worst, forming judgments at the drop of a hat and thrusting them on the poor viewers. There is a line between information and thrusting your nasty opinions on people. They condemn and criticize alternately and the issue would not have been snowballed but for the excessive zealousness of the media!
Also only Vinod Mehta can appear simultaneously in three discussions at once. Wonderfully charitable "outlook"
PS: LOL about the earth Hour. We in Hyderabad don’t need an earth hour to save power do we? We do it four hours a day!
