Be Better, 4 Mins
Digital Media - Using it Positively!

This is the final leg of the ‘ Be Better ’ series on getting through Social Media and I’ m so glad to share with you my favourite topic: Using Digital Media Positively! But, if you need a recap, check this out:
Part 1: Understanding Social Media - Read May 8th Issue
Part 2: Becoming Socially Smart - Read May 9th Issue
Part 3: Taking care of your Online Privacy - Read May 11th Issue
Part 4: Digital Profiles - Extra Care - Read May 12th Issue

To start using the digital media positively, we definitely need a better understanding of it. You can go back there or mail me your questions!
Here is a list of things that you can do with the available free digital media and use it positively:

1. Share Happy News: Reports suggest that negative news spreads seven times faster than positive news. You can prove it wrong by using your social media channels to spread loads of positivity.

Read More
2. Be an Aficionado: Are you of the passionate kind? Do you like to pursue your hobby religiously? If yes, then you’ re an aficionado! The best way to use social media is to make it a platform to share your amazing work, rather than making your personal life public!


3. Get Learning: Social media can be a great platform to learn and connect with experts if you are really serious about it. Use LinkedIn to connect with experts and get help with mentoring; use Instagram to connect with bloggers and learn from their expertise; use facebook to attend live sessions on your favourite topics.

4. Are you a sharing bee? Join social media to support small startups and entrepreneurs by sharing their products and services in exchange of freebies. This will not only help them grow, but you can slowly build an affiliate network that may grow to generate some pocket money too. (But money should not be your focus!)
5. Become a Change-Maker! Do you feel like giving back to society through service or contribution? There is never a better platform than social media to do that. Start it small, share it with your community, and make them your ambassadors. Don’ t forget to tag or align your work with organizations working with the United Nations.

6. Build Your Tribe: In the end, it is about social networking. Pick your interests and start building a tribe around it. Be sure about all that we talked about your privacy in the previous issue, and start your community or the tribe of your kind of people.

Social networking could be real fun if you’ re a good sport and would not mind learning a couple of things about it! Tell me in the comments, if you would like to know more about any particular medium. Don’ t hesitate to share your questions too!

What makes India a federation with unitary bias?


A federation, in legal terms, is defined as a political entity that can be a group of states, nations, or people that are united under a central authority but still retaining limited regional autonomy. India, as you can probably already tell, can be perfectly defined as a federation. However, unlike the U.S., there are some differences between the way our systems of governments work. That is why India is often described as a “federation with unitary bias.”

Read More
First of all, India is a federation because it has 28 states(not including the Union Territories which fall under the Central Government) each having their respective State Governments all of which fall under our Central Government as per our Constitution. Now, the State Governments make laws that fall under the subjects in the State List while the Central Government can make laws that fall under the Union List. However, in case of a dispute, the Union List and henceforth, the Central Government will always prevail. This is where the U.S. and India differ in the definition of a “federation.”


In the U.S., each state can make their own Constitution and its citizens are both the citizens of the States as well as the U.S. However, in India, we describe ourselves ONLY as citizens of India and NOT as the citizens of our respective states. Our Constitution clearly shows a bias towards our Central Government and hence the “unitary bias”.

STAY-AT-HOME ACTIVITIES

I Felt ________ When ________

Understand your own emotions by sharing situations when you feel various emotions.

Goal:

Learn more about emotions and the “logic” of why we feel what we do.

Do this first:

Make Feeling Cards like the ones in these images.

Instructions:


1) In a partner or small group, one person chooses a feeling card (without looking) and reads it.

2)The person thinks of a time they felt this feeling, and they explains:
I felt (the feeling on the card) when (the situation) because (why they had that feeling) .
For example: “I felt sad when I lost my teddy bear because I loved it so much & I didn’t know if I would ever find him again .
3) The other people in the group then say if they have had a situation like this or not, and then the next person draws a card.

Discussion:

● Sometimes feelings seem like that happen randomly, but in this exercise we could see there was a reason for feelings. In your daily life, how well do you notice the reasons for feelings?
● When you were listening, how easy was it to imagine the other person’s experience and feelings?
● What would happen if we could understand our own and others’ feelings more?

Learning from Nature

caricature
Author:

Aakriti Jindal




As a mom, I really feel that from the very beginning, we need to instill values in our young ones about what kind of human beings they should aspire to be. I like to write for and read to my little one about life lessons that I want him to acquire as he grows up. Kids are curious about nature and have a direct connection with it right from infancy. Here is one lesson I created about ‘Learning from Nature’, for my toddler. Hope you like it too:
