10 Reasons why Kidzania is an ideal monsoon getaway for your kids!

Summer has ended and the cloudy skies have started pouring like a tap without a knob! It’s more than just possible that your kids are not willing to go out of the house and are usually engaged with their favorite TV shows, games, social media websites and even with their mobile phones. You’re tired of telling them otherwise, and they might be tired of hearing and never listening.

But, we know that you understand the importance of your child’s mental and physical growth. You can’t just let them sit in front of the TV, or their tab or their laptop and other plethora of items in their arsenal of electronics. So, the question still remains, what can you do?

Well, dear parent, the answer is simple. The answer is Kidzania. And why is Kidzania the answer, let us tell you in detail…

Kidzania is not simply an amusement park. It is a simulation of everything. It simulates over 100 activities and jobs in the private sector, service sector, and a place where your kid can be anything from a pilot to an electrical engineer at an energy conservation hubKidazania-img-1

Kidzania is a separate nation where kids rule! Under adult’s supervision of course.

The Run Of Herculean Awesomeness

home-herculean

 

The most famous hero of Ancient Greece, the mighty demigod son of Zeus, the man who defeated the Nemean Lion and the Hydra and the Big Wild Boar and cleaning a-stable-full-of-flesh-eating-horses-that–have-not-been-cleaned-in-thousands-of-years in a day and capturing a Big Bull and slay a flock of murderous-flesh-eating-genociding crows and steal some golden apples from a-giant-dragon-with-one-hundred-heads-and-extremely-bad-breath and steal the crown of a warrior queen and steal Diomedes’s horses and capture a two-headed dude’s cows and capture Artemis’s golden butt and capture and bring back the 2-headed-german-shephard-immortal-guardian of the gates of hell.

Well then, a fitting name for the race; a race which demands more from the racers that the 12 tasks bestowed upon the hero.

But, while the obstacles faced by this hero were only 12, our heroes running this race have to face a total of 35! That is 12 plus… uh… many obstacles that they must overcome. And the winner, while does not get pardon for murder he may or may not have committed after being driven mad by Hera, does get some money and a big shiny trophy.

The obstacles are specially designed to test the contestants’ physical limit, to expand them and to break them. The race is India’s first race of this scale and ambition and runners from all over the world will be competing.

A physically and mentally demanding competition, the Herculean Run is sure to have spectators on the edge of their seat as they cheer on the man or woman that they support and want to win. This race, which takes place in Thane, Mumbai on the 4th of June, is the second largest of the world’s obstacle series.

It is definitely worth watching.

Why? Because it’s #BigTicketNext

Turning Turtle

olive_ridley_leonard

 

 

One hundred and seventy five million years ago, a weird creature that did not belong with the dinosaurs crawled onto the sandy shore of a land now lost. And for those 175 million years, these creatures that crawled onto the beaches have stayed. They’ve gone all around the world.

With their hard backs and soft insides, they seem to be unstoppable having survived the meteor that killed the dinosaurs, and the ice age which killed the mammoths.

But, as it would seem, the luck of the turtles has run out.

Yes, they survived the meteor and the ice age, but they appear to be falling now. It appears they cannot survive in the time of Man.

In 2011 the Tortoise and Freshwater Turtle Specialist Group published a report with the 25 species of turtles about to go extinct and the 40 most likely to go extinct, 65 species out of a known 300.

In the words of the biologist George Amato, “the amount and the volume of captured turtles… (has) vacuumed up entire species from areas in Southeast Asia.” It is calculated that about 90% of the turtles living in Asia are threatened.

They are a species that have lived through everything. How sad would it be if those they share the planet with are those who end up killing them.

“A friend in need is a friend in deed,” I believe we got this saying from an old turtle based story. Ironic isn’t it.

So be the friend that the turtles like the Loggerhead turtle, the Ridley turtle and the Flatback turtle need.

Donate to the charity of your choice, the world, the turtles need it. And yes, you’ll be thinking who cares about a few dead turtles. But we should care. Because it would be a shame to see their face next to the face of a dodo in a book in the chapter titled “Extinct Animals.”

And the best way to start helping them is to get to know them a little.

So pop on down to Australia, where some of the more endangered species and some of the more common species are protected in aquariums throughout the country.

Why? Because you are their #BigTicketNext to survival!

 

And, just because we care, and we think it’s cool, here’s our list of the best looking turtles from around the world:

  1. Loggerhead Sea Turtle – this turtle is found throughout the world.
  2. Spotted Turtle – Also known as Clemmy’s Guttata and is found in Canada and the USA
  3. The Sea Turtle – Found in all seas and oceans except the Polar regions.
  4. The Leatherback Sea Turtle – Found all over the world.
  5. Olive Ridley Sea Turtle – A resident of warm water and tropical islands it’s found mostly in the Indian and Pacific oceans.
  6. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle

 

World Turtle Day is May 23rd. Spend it with the turtles this year!

Pink City Beckons Literature Dilettantes

From the days of Shakespearian glory to the days of Harry Potter rise as the new hero, literature has never failed to fascinate. They say that understanding literature is as much as an art than creating it and if you are lover of the words, there is no restriction to your imagination. Imagination is fueled by literature and it is just not the sheer entertainment value that literature gives you but it is also the food for the soul. If you are one of those people who love being lost in their reveries picturing something native only to their own imagination, there is no reason for you to not dwell deep into the world of literature.

Literature exists in various forms and takes various shapes when molded by artists. Right from poetic verses of Wordsworth to H.G. Well’s short stories, literature has never failed to capture the essence of the little things of life that are a source of many a sentiment for humanity. To read and to write are both forms of art that come naturally to some while others have to develop a knack for it with practice.

If you’re in love with literature and everything that’s in it, you already have artistic abilities of your own. Investing in your abilities to polish them is something that happens over time if you put in the right efforts. If you aspire to be a writer someday, the language is perhaps your first love and in order to grow this love to survive eternity and beyond, you ought to constantly be a part of this beautiful community of artists and be active.
