Women Entrepreneurs: The Key For Unlocking India's True Potential

Women comprise half of India’s population, which is 48.04 percent as per UN (World Population Prospects 2019). However, their contribution is only around 19.9% of the total workforce in the country, according to another data provided by World Bank 2020. The advancement in India's social structure has not guaranteed the growth and inclusion of women in the economy due to which the progress of women as entrepreneurs and as an economic resource remains substantially untapped. As women, we play a significant role in the economy and our lack of participation in entrepreneurship can lead to serious consequences on India’s economic growth. It is crucial for the country to cover wider grounds for us women to unleash our true potential and break the traditional barriers to thrive in this male-centric entrepreneurial ecosystem.

School bags: Lighten the burden | India Today Insight

As a result of the ministry of education’s new policy, students will no longer have to lug heavy school bags on their backs  n educational circles, the weight of school bags has been a subject of debate for several years. Child counsellors, psychologists and educationists have often highlighted that heavy bags have negative consequences for the health and well-being of students.

How to help a child become a more confident writer

Teachers and parents need to recognise if a child is facing certain issues in the process of developing writing skills. Writing is one of the most crucial forms of communication and a major part of education. It is, however, a difficult skill to master, especially for children. As writing is not an easy process, it needs to be cultivated in a child with a lot of love, patience and nurturing. It is a journey, just like speaking and walking, which happens gradually, improves incrementally and finally gets to a stage of confidence.

Preparing Your Child for a New Sibling and How the attention divides between two kids

The arrival of a new baby can bring several changes to one’s life. Parents start investing their time and energy on arrangements and after the arrival of the baby most of the family’s attention includes caring for the infant. These transformations can be both a thrilling and a challenging experience for the older sibling. Therefore, it is crucial for the parents to tell their already born children about the new member and prepare them accordingly for the changes in the family life which might vary depending on the age difference.
