“THE ART OF WRITING IS THE ART OF DISCOVERING WHAT YOU BELIEVE.” -GUSTAVE FLAUBERT NEWS Today it is a privilege to introduce you to - The Author of various N textbooks published by Oxford Press, India.Her name is Ms. Anahita Lee. She graduated from Sophia college, Mumbai, followed by M.A. in VIEWS English from University of Rajasthan and a Bachelor in Education from St. Xavier institute of education, Mumbai. She has also competed a professional learning programme – The Future of Learning from the Harvard Graduate School of Education, Cambridge, Mssachusetts.Now let us read her interview, how she managed to achieve these accolades. Q. Ma’am what inspired you to become a writer & did your parents support you at that stage? Ans. It was my mother who built my writing skills. She is a writer and editor herself. When we were young, she read to my brother, my sister and to me. We always had lots of books to read and I think if you read a lot, you do end up wanting to write as well. My mother thought television would ruin our reading habits, so we did not have a television set at home right up to the time I was in grade 9 or 10! She also made us write essays and compositions which she would critique, making us write and rewrite multiple drafts till the piece was up to the mark. Even today, she reads through all of my work before it is finally published. Q. At what age did you write your first book? Ans. I used to publish poems, stories and articles in our school magazine and news journals from a young age. But because I write textbooks and activity books for students, I published my first book after almost 20 years of teaching experience.

Q. Ma’am can you please tell us after completing education in India, how was your journey from India to Harvard Graduate school, Cambridge & Oxford Teachers Academy, U.K.? And Which kind of new skills did you acquire by studying at Harvard Graduate school, Cambridge & Oxford Teachers Academy, U.K.? How these skills were helpful to you while working in India? Ans.My professors at Sophia College, Mumbai, where I majored in English Literature, were brilliant. Ms. Colaco and Ms. Stevens in particular were inspirational. The courses I did from Harvard Graduate School of Education and the Oxford Teacher’s Academy were both much later, after I started writing. St Stephen’s, a school that I work at, sent me to Harvard to learn about future trends in education. That gave me the opportunity to learn and interact with educators across the globe. My publishers, Oxford University Press, hosted my training at the Oxford Teachers Academy. The training was very rigorous and I learnt how to be a better trainer for teachers and was able to work on things I needed to do better and also build on my strengths and capacities. Q. Can you elaborate on Sustainable Development Goals adopted by United Nations in 2015? Ans. Sustainable development means living life in a way that is better for people and for the Earth. It helps make sure that there are enough resources to use in the future. In August 2015, 193 member countries of the United Nations agreed to work together in partnership to achieve 17 goals called the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). These goals are for a better future for the world and for all of us. Because the goals have specific targets that we can all work towards, they serve as a plan or a blueprint that each one of us can follow. We can take action, invent, innovate and campaign to Be the Change ourselves, and meet the Global Goal targets. Through the challenges we faced during the pandemic, we have come to realize the truth that what happens to one, affects us all and if are to be safe and healthy and happy, we have to ensure that those around us are too. And this is the key message of the SDGs: the world as one, no one left behind. Q. What message you would like to give to all the young budding writers? Ans. Read, read, read and then read some more. Keep writing and build your own style.

Read My Thoughts Portmanteau words ● A portmanteau is a french-origin word which is made up of two existing words in order to create a new sound. The new word blends the sounds and meanings of the two words from which it is formed. ● An example of a portmanteau word is the word podcast. This is a portmanteau of the two words iPod and broadcast which has a new meaning. That is a broadcast that can be listened to on an iPod. By using this new word, the speaker does not have to use the phrase 'a broadcast listened to on an iPod'. Examples of portmanteau words include: ❖ Motel = motorway + hotel Meaning = A roadside hotel used for brief stays ❖ Spork = spoon + fork Meaning = Cutlery which functions as both, a spoon and a fork ❖ Britpop = British + popular music Meaning = Pop music from the UK

What if Social media disappeared ? Social media is lots off fun and a colossal time-suck, not to mention pretty darn addictive. Here's what happens when you pull the plug, even for a short timespan… For 6 hours on Monday, October 4, 2021, many people’s lives changed dramatically. Everything from how they worked and socialized to how they found out about the latest news and entertained themselves was altered. That was all a result of a Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp outage Let’s see What will happen IF SOCIAL MEDIA DISAPPEARED? You might feel anxious at first While the effects of quitting social media are generally positive in the long run, your immediate reaction may be one of stress and anxiety. These feelings are caused by a neurobiological withdrawal from the sense of being constantly connected. “If you’re using social media addictively, which some people are, you have elevated levels of dopamine ,a happiness hormone, so when you stop doing that, there is some withdrawal. Luckily , these feelings usually do not persist beyond the first few days of quitting social media, so you should be able to enjoy the positive effects soon enough. You’ll get more work done, and you’ll do it faster When you don’t have to worry about your devices buzzing left and right, you could find your productivity levels shooting through the roof. You’ll get your ideas flowing . If you find yourself stuck in a creative block, it might have something to do with your social media habits. By giving up social media entirely, you rid yourself of these nagging notifications and allow your creativity to flourish.

You’ll learn more about yourself Once you stop scrolling through other people’s opinions, you will likely find out more about what motivates you, not them.Remove yourself from social media and you’ll learn how to think more and make decisions and choices independently. You’ll develop more emotional intelligence Ditching social media may not only make you a nicer person, but it could also help you develop your emotional intelligence, a valuable skill in the workplace. But it does require that you, yes,interact with other human beings. You’ll feel less stressed Because social media has become so easy to access anywhere and at any time, we often feel compelled to pay attention 24/7 to what is taking place on our newsfeeds and timelines. This heightened stress can bring along a whole slew has an unfavourable effect on the brain and reduced memory and an increased chance of depression. Staying away from social media makes you less prone to such a high level of cortisol, leaving you calmer and more focused. You’ll get more sleep You take a quick minute to check one notification on Instagram before bed when suddenly you realize you’ve been browsing, liking, and commenting long past your bedtime. This has become a common habit for many people at night, often spending one to two hours scrolling through social media in bed. Think about it: If you’re doing that every day, that’s 15 hours a week you spend just doing social media. You’ll strengthen your face-to-face relationships Sure, social media can be an excellent way to stay in touch with old friends or family from out of town, but cutting ties with the Internet can work wonders for your tangible friendships.Face-to-face interpersonal relationships are generally much stronger.Pulling back on social media and spending more time on face-to-face interactions really helps your relationships, and relationships are really one of the most important factors in wellbeing and mental health.

International Day of Education Education is a human right, a public good and a public responsibility.We need education to reduce inequalities and improve health, to achieve gender equality and eliminate child marriage. The first-ever International Day of Education was observed on the 24th of January 2019. The Pandemic Covid-19 taught us that Education for our generation is not linked with the institutions and general sources like books only.The purpose of this theme is to strengthen and welcome the revival of education. Education in its usual and formal way has observed a huge gap in the year 2020-21.As per the data shared by UNESCO, the closure of schools, universities and other learning institutions, as well as the interruption of many literacy and lifelong learning programmes, has affected the lives of 1.6 billion students in over 190 countries.This year’s International Day of Education will be a platform to showcase the most important transformations that have to be nurtured to realize everyone’s fundamental right to education and build a more sustainable, inclusive and peaceful future.

My Most Memorable Trip My most memorable trip was when I went to “Jim Corbett National Park” with my family and friends in December. We flew to Delhi then we took a 5-hour train ride to Ramnagar. Next day we took a jeep to Corbett Park. We did safaris and saw many animals like jackals, elephants and birds. But the best sighting was two tiger cubs. We set out in the dark in an open jeep. We had to be as quiet as a mouse so as not to scare them. The experience was scary but exciting. A funny incident was when a monkey tried to run off with my mom’s purse. But my father went like Flash after the monkey and saved the purse. After that we went to Nainital / Bhimtal and lived in a bungalow which was old- fashioned with three floors, which I liked. There were helpers who made delicious food. And there was even a puppy named Dollar. The mountains, especially the Shivalik Range, were majestic. “Tal” means lake, and there were many lakes there. We did kayaking, zip lining, and zorbing. It was also extremely cold as it was winter. But eating hot Maggi and delicious momos in the cold climate felt very nice. I am sad that the trip is over but I am happy that I made new memories.

World Braille Day Are you aware about Braille? Braille is essential in the context of education, freedom of expression and opinion, as well as social inclusion. Braille is read by passing one’s fingertips over an arrangement of between 1 to 6 embossed dots which represent letters, numbers as well as musical and mathematical symbols. Braille can be written using a Braille Writer, a device similar to a typewriter, or by using a pointed stylus and a Braille Slate to punch dots on paper. World Braille Day was established on 4th January by the UN General Assembly in December 2019. The date also marks the birth anniversary of Louis Braille, who at the age of 15 invented the tactile system for reading and writing used by people who are blind or visually impaired. For the visually impaired, life under lockdown has posed several issues in terms of independence and isolation, especially for people who rely on the use of touch to communicate their needs and access information. Hence, World Braille Day is celebrated to raise awareness of the importance of Braille as a means of communication in the full realization of the human rights for blind and partially sighted people.
