Math is more than just a subject taught in the schools. Math is an everyday skill needed by the most ordinary for the most mundane of the tasks. Targeting the age group of 7yrs to 10 yrs. my aim is to equip every kid on the planet with near perfect calculation skills in the most amazing and fun filled way. With an aim to eradicate the term “math phobia”, I pledge to spread the love for Math.
Having played Chess for more than five years, I had seen it all. But one day I realized that the game that was once ridiculed as pastime for the idles, was now played as a sport and the children from the weaker sections were left deprived of the advantages that this mindgame could bring to them as well. Why should it become a game only for the rich and the otherwise privileged children.
With this thought I have been teaching Chess to 20 kids some of whom are the children of the maid servants who work in our society.
Under Project Warmth we collect old usable woolens, blankets and other clothing items, and distribute them to the homeless across the city. Last winters in 2015, we had our collection points at four different locations in south Delhi. I along with 2 of my friends distributed the same every Friday in the months of November and December at the Nehru Place flyover/ the cold shelter in Kalkaji/ the slums in Tughlakabad, New Delhi.
The society where I live has about 450 apartments and as many families, some living since the first allotment by DDA in 1984. So, the elderly form the majority living here. With a view to touch their lives more positively, we recently conducted a workshop on how to use Skype. An hour long class was conducted three times in July 2016.
