Imagimake India and World map : toy review

One of the goals i had this year is to spend some time with kids teaching general knowledge. After spending fortnight teaching indian states to younger one – I figured out i needed a better way and ordered this on amazon.

What exactly is in this toy?

It has India and world maps. Each map has foam pieces – one for each state and country.

Whats cool?

They have given plastic flags with each map and kids can stick the stickers provided. It tells capitals for indian states and flags + capitals for world countries.

Whats not cool?

The countries are harder to locate just based on one guiding map. It was just easier if they would have made it more explicit with flashcards or more visual stuff.

Price and where to buy?

I got it for Rs. 890 on amazon. Here is the exact description –

Final verdict – 4.5/5

Go for it!!

Have a good day and keep rocking!

A Happiness Course by Marketing Professor?

If you know me well, you know that I chase the elusive happiness in my life. Don’t get me wrong, I’m good. Grateful, content. However, i come from the background which says happiness can’t be a myth. There has to be some proven techniques to make yourself happy, no matter what you’re doing, how much you’re earning.

It’s a completely different thing if you’re stuck in a disastrous relationship or have acute shortage for basic necessities. But for most of us, the basics are thoroughly met. So, why are some people more happier than others?

Dr. Rajagopal Raghunathan, a visiting professor at ISB Hyderabad debunks the entire theory of happiness and how!  Being a professor himself – he leaves no stone unturned to explain scientifically how everyone can be happy 🙂

I’ve done the entire course here and am thoroughly convinced :

A Life of Happiness and Fulfillment

Yeah, I know. Knowing is not doing. I’m still far off from implementing whatever Professor has taught, but doing this course is like having the key. The problem now is go to go to the door and put the key in. Atleast you can’t complain of not knowing what the key is!

Am not spoiling the fun for people who want to do the course, so have kept the post really generic, contrary to my spoiler-filled posts. Enrol, and have some enlightenment 🙂

Have a great day and keep rocking!!
