aparnaa world school

For a parent, their world starts and ends with their children. We at Aparnaa World School make sure that their emotions are understood. All the poles, the gravity, nature, the seasons, the calamities reside within their child. But when a child sees the world through their eyes, their image, opinions, perspectives change. Parents can control what a child sees about “our world”, but they shouldn’t stop a child from seeing the world.   When a child swings for the first time, the thrill of soaring high in the air and then coming back down, the first time they hear the different sounds of the animals and birds, the first time they experience traveling, motion, and grasp the concept of time, these early life experiences help the child develop themselves wholesomely.   When we let our children study, observe, and experience nature, their mind expands and they push beyond horizons, as well as are more aware of the world and everything it contains.   Learning is a never-ending process and each experience teaches a child what to keep doing, what to not keep doing, and what new things can be implemented. The physical benefits to are noteworthy. Let your child see the expression of nature, and they will surprise you in ways you never thought.

why to teach children hindi

Hindi is spoken by around 260 million people across the globe as a native tongue, with another estimated 120 million people use Hindi as a second language in countries such as India and Nepal. So many people – from children to adults – take up a second language at some point in their lives, as they appreciate the benefits it can bring, not only by allowing you to reach out and communicate to millions of new people but also due to the cultural enrichment that language learning has. This alone could be a reason to teach children Hindi, but we do have more reasons below:

Fourth Most Spoken Language

Hindi is the mother language of the second largest populated country in the world. Therefore it has become the 04th most spoken language after English, Chinese & Spanish. This is the most important reason why to teach your children Hindi.

Useful for Communication all Over India & Neighbouring Countries

Hindi is the second language of almost the whole of the Indian Sub-Continent. This would be really helpful for children to establish communications with others in the region. Also, Hindi has a vast history with it. The kids can enjoy that too.

Hindi is a Phonetic Language

Unlike English, Hindi is a phonetic language. That means the words in Hindi are pronounced as they are written. This could be a new experience for English Speaking Children. This can be a real advantage when learning a language, as it makes picking up new words and developing your vocabulary much easier.

They could enjoy the Indian Culture more Deeply

As most of the people in India speak Hindi, the kids can enjoy the different cultures in India more deeply. They could communicate with almost all people in India & nearby countries & could understand them more broadly.

Indian Women Pioneers in Science & Technology

Indian Women in Science & Technology

Indian Women have been pioneers in Science & Technology, since the start of recorded history. We at Aparnaa World School salute all the women who have dedicated their lives to science & technology.

Edavaleth Kakkat Janaki Ammal (1897-1984)

Indian Women in Science & technology

Janaki Ammal was born in the year 1897, in Tellichery, Kerala, in a cultured middle-class family. Her father was a sub-judge in what was then the Madras Presidency. She had six brothers and five sisters. After schooling in Tellichery, she moved to Madras where she obtained the bachelor’s degree from Queen Mary’s College, and an honours degree in Botany from Presidency College in 1921.

She lived up to her own definition of greatness which combined virtue in life and passion in the pursuit of her science. There is thus much for us to emulate in her life and work.

B Vijayalakshmi (1952-1985)

Indian Women in Science & Technology

Born into a conservative family, she obtained her Masters from Seethalakshmi Ramaswami CollegeTiruchirapalli in 1974 and joined the Department of Theoretical Physics. In 1982, she completed a Ph.D from Madras University, and soon met and married T. Jayaram.

B. Vijayalakshmi’s studies explored the topics of relativistic equations of higher spin in external electromagnetic and gravitational fields, looking for ways higher spin theories could be constructed. Soon after she worked on spinning particle in non-relativistic quantum mechanics. It was around 1978 when the Association of Research Scholars of the Madras University was formed and was contributed to by B. Vijayalakshmi. In 1980 she gave talks at the biannual High Energy Physics Symposium of the Department of Atomic Energy held at the University in Kochi. She was treated with high regard after this and respect for her studies. Although her health deteriorated due to cancer she published five publications on the relativistic wave equations in external fields and completed her requirements for Ph.D., describing large classes of relativistic equations previously unknown to the scientific community. As supersymmetry became more popular her work shifted and she wrote two papers on the topic. For more than two more years B. was studying relativistic equations from different angles.

B. Vijayalakshmi died on 12 May 1985.

Sashi Kumar created a documentary about her life called “Vijayalakshmi: The Story of a Young Woman with Cancer”.

Anandibai Joshi (1865-1887)

Anandibai Gopalrao Joshi (31 March 1865 – 26 February 1887) was the first Indian female practitioner of western medicine, alongside Kadambini Ganguly. She was the first woman from the erstwhile Bombay presidency of India to study and graduate with a two-year degree in western medicine in the United States.

Originally named Yamuna, Joshi was born, raised and married in Kalyan where her family had previously been landlords before experiencing financial losses. As was the practice at that time and due to pressure from her mother, she was married at the age of nine to Gopalrao Joshi, a widower almost twenty years her senior. After marriage, Yamuna’s husband renamed her ‘Anandi’. Gopalrao Joshi worked as a postal clerk in Kalyan. Later, he was transferred to Alibag, and then, finally, to Kolkata (Calcutta). He was a progressive thinker, and, unusually for that time, supported education for women.

At the age of fourteen, Anandibai gave birth to a boy, but the child lived only for a total of ten days due to lack of medical care. This proved to be a turning point in Anandi’s life and inspired her to become a physician. After Gopalrao tried to enroll her in missionary schools and not working out, they moved to Calcutta. There she learned to read and speak Sanskrit and English.

The Institute for Research and Documentation in Social Sciences (IRDS), a non-governmental organization from Lucknow, has been awarding the Anandibai Joshi Award for Medicine in honour of her early contributions to the cause of advancing medical science in India. In addition, the Government of Maharashtra has established a fellowship in her name for young women working on women’s health. A crater on Venus has been named in her honour. The 34.3 km-diameter crater on Venus named ‘Joshee’ lies at latitude 5.5° N and longitude 288.8° E.

On 31 March 2018, Google honored her with a Google Doodle to mark her 153rd birth anniversary.

Importance of Voting in India

By | Blog, education, uncategorized | No Comments
Importance of Voting

Voting in India is a Constitutional right if one is a citizen over 18 years of age. But What is the importance of voting? However, that also makes it optional. It has been a tendency among voters, especially in the urban areas, to treat the voting day as a day of rest. While skipping the vote may not seem to cause any harm, the long-term consequences are disastrous.

Why Should We Vote In India?

It has become a common ritual to talk bitterly about any candidate or an elected leader of any legislative assembly or parliament. The fault-finding then comes down to the ‘System’ and how democracy is not working as it should. However, very little room has been given to ‘What the people can do’ to strengthen the democratic roots and bring about a change in the system. Just as it is the responsibility of the elected leader to fulfill the well-being of the voters, the same is the need for the people of India to contribute to choosing the correct leader for their representation.

Democracy has given people a powerful right- that is to VOTE. Voting is the fundamental basis of democracy’s ‘Of the people, for the people, and by the people’ slogan. Therefore, rather than enjoying it as a holiday, one must vote if he truly wants to contribute to the nation-building process and bring about a change. A Citizen should actually not need to find any reason to Vote. It must be done as a compulsive duty although there is no legal obligation to vote.

Every Single Vote Is Significant

Needless to say, every citizen’s vote is counted in the polling process. If the people are equally divided between two candidates, one single vote can be a game-changer and a decisive factor. We have seen in the past how one vote from an MP can decide the fall of the government. Exactly the same way, a single person’s vote can confirm the win/fall of an aspiring MP or MLA.

Origin of the Change

Apart from the protests, voting is a highly effective medium to have the change that we want in the government. Our nation has already witnessed how a non-performing government gets dethroned by the spirit of wanting a change. In recent years, there is a considerable rise in the voting percentage and people are truly loving to be the ‘Change Makers’. Isn’t it exciting that a person can choose the leader of the country right from the age of 18?

Non-choosers get NOTA

At times, it is possible that one does not want any single candidate to be elected from all who are contesting. The election commission has made a special provision of NOTA. It stands for None of The Above. Hence if none of the candidates fit into your criteria, just hit the NOTA option and voice the opinion. The introduction of this alternative is believed to play a significant role in the future. In the late future, it may also be possible that the NOTA will decide the re-elections with fresh candidates.

A Sense of Pride

We must honor the right of voting given by the constitution of India. The youngsters are well excited to exercise their right to vote as soon as they turn 18. The feeling after having cast a vote infuses a sense of pride for being a responsible citizen. As can be witnessed from the sharing of the inked finger on social media. The trend is continuing to gain popularity amongst the youngers and the elders as well.

Gone are the days when it was required for people to motivate them to vote. The vote share for the General Election of 2014 was 8% higher than the previous election. Voter turnout in the Lok Sabha Election 2019 was 67%. The voter awareness program has become successful in its mission and the vote share continues to increase to date in many state elections. With this increasing voter turnout, we will soon reach the 80-90% golden mark.

Srinivasa Ramanujan: The Man Who Knew Infinity

By | Blog, education, School, uncategorized | One Comment
The man who knew infinity
Srinivasa Ramanujan is one of the world’s greatest mathematicians, and he is known for his great work done in his field. He made many of his theories very popular in the world. This is why his principles are still used in many countries.

Early Life

He was born on December 22, 1887, in Erode, Tamil Nadu. Also, he is known for many contributions made in the theory of numbers. It is very startling for many people, but in the beginning, Ramanujan never studied mathematics. He studied mathematics and became its expert in the latter part of his education.

Srinivasa Ramanujan studied some books written by international mathematicians, and after a few years, he made many of his theories on mathematics.

Ramanujan was very poor, and he did various research only under bad circumstances, but later he was supported by Ram Chandra Rao and his clerical job, due to which he was able to learn more and invent many new studies on mathematics.

Adulthood

In 1914, he won a scholarship to England and studied hard under Godfrey. He worked hard and also invented various other theories. Ramanujan surprised every teacher with the knowledge of mathematics. Also, he never knew the modern techniques of mathematics. But, at that time he still performed better than many professors and researchers.

He invented many theories, and the most famous ones are followed: Ramanujan continuously, Mok Live work, Ramanujan estimation, Ramanujan Pradhan, Ramanujan Live ceremony, Ramanujan’s zodiac, Ramanujan’s set series, etc. He also won the companionship of the royal society.

He worked for a very short period because he was only 32 years old, but his teachings are still alive in many people’s minds and textbooks. So, this country was about Srinivasa Ramanujan, the country’s best mathematician.
