This morning I tried to take some time in providing links in my earlier posts. But unfortunately I didn't have time as I had trouble using my Net Banking accounts (which I usually use to pay utility bills and subscriptions). I have still been trying to get the problem fixed but in vain, despite the fact that I have always been a good customer to banks (I have never borrowed any loan so far). Customer service seems to be frustratingly poor in our banks in spite of digital support systems.

Yesterday was a very auspicious day in the Hindu calender. It was Varaaha Jayanthi. Varaahaa was one of the Avataars of Shree Mahaa Vishnu.
Today is the traditional beginning of New Year in Tamilnadu, Kerala, Gujarat etc. as well as in countries like Cambodia (due to their historic ties with India). Best wishes to all my friends and well-wishers who celebrate their New Year's Day.

My published works include 59 articles in teacher development magazines in India and the US and a book entitled `Creative Classrooms and Child Friendly Schools' (listed in Amazon).
