OMG! I never knew I would have this irresistible urge to write about the web series which I happened to recently watch, ‘Scam 1992- The Harshad Mehta Story’ on Sony Liv. Guys, don’t go by the title literally, I meant here ‘THE Pratik Gandhi on my mind’.I am totally in awe of the lead actor Pratik Gandhi. The 10-episode series is around the life of famed stockbroker Harshad Mehta who took the stock market to rapid heights and his disastrous downfall as a result of committing fraud.
We are in a nuclear setup and a family of four, me, my husband and two notorious kids. The other day I was put to question by my husband as to why I still get up an hour before anyone else in the house? He further suggested that since we all are working from home and there is no rush for school or office or grocery or any other thing for that matter, then why do I still have to haste for things? Another word of advice was since I have my whole day at my disposal, I can take up things little slow and easy and instead take an extra hour of sleep?
That made me ponder and I decided to alter my morning alarm to get the taste of the new morning routine, as guided by my affectionate husband.
While we all are floating in the same boat of ‘New Normal’ and busy tacking between work from home and work for home; work for kids or work around kids; cleaning the house or cleaning the utensils; meditating or watching tv; me time or sleep time…Aahhhh…..and the list goes on.
We have hundreds of things in mind when we get up from the bed or when we call it a day. Do this or do that, do right now or later, is this important or if this can wait. We surely are one skilled multitasker. Don’t you think?
However, amid this perpetual juggle, there are days when I want to do nothing, I mean just nothing. Yes, you read that right! Do you also feel the same at times?
Now that we all are nearly sailing in the boat of homeschooling (all thanks to Pandemic), we surely struggle for some good reads for our little stars. With that in mind, I decided to bring together 10 top storybooks every preschooler must-have. It was hard to break it down to such a small list and I know that you will have many books to add so feel free to leave a comment with the titles you suggest for preschoolers and I will be happy to add. Happy Reading!
