    As Keerthi said, “It’s not only about good touch or bad touch. It’s more about speaking out or suppressing within self.” With this awakening thought, The Modern School, Ghaziabad conducted an informative session on “Good Touch and Bad Touch” for classes P1- P5. Our Principal, Mrs. Manju Mehra welcomed Ms. Rachita Kanwar, Counsellor and Industrial psychologist, currently pursuing PhD in psychology from IILM , Gurugram. She addedthat she had conducted several workshops on mental health and freelancing as a counseling psychologist. She stated that it is very imperative to know that the child knows good touch gives a warm feeling and bad touch can cause physical trauma. She also highlighted that the children should be able to distinguish between consent and exploitation. Ms. Rachita also associated different feelings like being happy, sad, angry, loved and ashamed via the medium of Tom and Jerry. She also enlightened that “When we get touched, we feel things. She mentioned that good touch is whenone feels happy after the touch and bad touch is when one hits and also when someone touches without the consent of that particular person. Ms. Rachita said that children should never hide rather disclose about such things to their Parents, Grandparents and someone who can be trusted upon. Sheasked the children to refrain from getting associated with domestic help and also told them to play decent games .To conclude, she showed a video on Good Touch and Bad Touch . It was indeed a fruitful and informative session in order to create awareness among the children to be future ready.

          In Conversation with Ms Manjul Bajaj

          ‘Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers’-Charles W. Eliot

          The Modern School, Ghaziabad organised a session: Meet Your Author by Ms Manjul Bajaj on 3rd September 2021.
          Ms Manjul Bajaj is an accomplished writer and a poet, a plant lover, a craft enthusiast and one who believes that love is the answer to all of the world's problems. Manjul Bajaj is the author of Come, Before Evening Falls (shortlisted for the Hindu Literary Prize in 2010) and Another Man’s Wife (shortlisted for the Hindu Literary Prize in 2013) and In Search of Heer (listed for the JCB and other prizes in 2020). She has also written two books for children—Elbie’s Quest and Nargisa’s Adventures. 

          There were a lot of questions put up to the author by our students, which are as follows.

          Q: What is your favorite genre?
          A: I write fantasy for children and I write fiction for adults and I also write poetry sometimes both in English and Hindi.

          Q: At what age did you develop a fondness for books?
          A: I don't remember at what age I started loving books, but yes I do remember that I read my first Noddy book when I was in Class V and ever since I have been loving books.

          Q: Who is your role model?
          A: I don't have one role model, I have lots and lots of role models. One who is vibrant and specially women are role models for me. I don't limit myself to only authors.

          Q: Since when did you become a plant lover?
          A: During the time when I got my first job, I grew lacs of trees. We went to a village and we had a tree plantation drive. Also, when I was in Class 4 or 5, we planted eucalyptus saplings and two of them are still there and I feel proud.
          So, I have loved trees and plants from the very beginning.

          Q: What inspired you to become a writer in your life?
          A: So, I do remember that in school we used to have essay and poem contests. Everybody used to participate in them, but when I started receiving appreciation  I just thought let's do it. I loved writing and was encouraged by my teachers at school.

          Q Would you suggest some books for us.
          A: There is no one book. The act of reading is what should appeal to you. You just have a cupboard full of books and read whichever you like.

          Q What kind of poems do you write.
          A: I haven’t really published too much of my poetry except on the internet.
          I started writing limericks as a child. I was five years old when I wrote my first limerick, it was a rhyming poem of 5 lines.
          I love to write free verse.

          Q: How do you imagine things in your mind?
          A: Well, I believe, what you feed your mind is what your mind will give you back. So, one should feed his/her mind with all kinds of rich words, books, and experiences and those things then translate into your imagination. Books are friends which are there in all your times whether good or bad.

          Q: Is there any book close to your heart that you would recommend to others.?
          A: I love Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, its a classic and I have read it many times. It's a book that I would recommend to children and adults.
          One of my favourite children's book is Alice in Wonderland.

          Q: How to become a writer?
          A: You become a writer by writings. Just like any work, unless you do it, it won't happen. You cannot imagine being a writer you actually have to sit down and write. You must know three main key ingredients of writing a story, which are, the story has to happen to someone, characters and setting and event.
          You have to think, whether my story is going to be humorous, chapter by chapter story, etc.
          You can't make a story without these three ingredients.

          Q: How did you get the inspiration during the lockdown to write a book?
          A: Lockdown was a difficult time for all of us and I just thought that I am a writer and I decided to write 1 page every day.

          The children were very excited and delighted to Meet the Author: Ms. Manjul Bajaj. It was an enriching, interactive and inspiring session for all.

She narrated the story The Scarecrow’s Hat”, written by Ken Brown.

She also enlightened the children as well as their parents with the importance of reading and also highlighted that reading habits should be inculcated from the beginning. As Samuel Johnson stated, “ A writer only begins a book. A reader finishes it. To conclude, Mrs. Manju Mehra thanked Mrs. Vinita Krishnan for sparing her valuable time and also imparting the children and parents with her valuable thoughts.
