It's a huge pleasure for me to share some creative, nature- and forest-related activities – to do with kids – on the 'Pratham Books' blog.
Thank you, Pratham Books, for inviting me to share ideas for your campaign – "Awareness Today for a Greener Tomorrow". It's an honour to work in collaboration with you for a cause that's so close to my heart!
To tell you all a little bit about Pratham Books – they're a not-for-profit organization that publishes books in multiple Indian languages, including English, to promote reading among children. Their books are written and illustrated by the best creative minds in the literary/art world. Their mission is to see "a book in every child's hand" and democratize the joy of reading. What an enlightening thought!
Hop on over to the Pratham Books blog to check out a list of nature activities that we have done and enjoyed thoroughly and highly recommend.

I need help sustaining this blog…
Dear blog readers – It’s been exactly eight years now that I’ve been writing on this blog! Yes, eight long years and hundreds of articles. From art, creativity and learning; to food, health, gardening, travel, sustainable and mindful living, natural birth. In our un-schooling life, as we go on introspecting, questioning and evolving, I’ve strived to share our stories and experiences with as much honesty, care and sincerity as possible.
I spend hours writing an article – and often write and rewrite many times before it rings true to me and sounds worthy of your time to read.
The most important thing for me is to keep this blogging endeavour authentic and true to my values. This blog has been my sacred space to express, share, feel empowered and contribute. Hence, I do not like to support businesses that don’t align with my values. So far, I’ve rarely taken sponsorship from brands and companies. I haven’t placed any ads on my blog, though there have been multiple offers.
Infact, I’d like to keep this blog ad free unless something truly meaningful comes across.
Yet, there’s a cost to running this blog. The basic cost of keeping the domain alive, and hosting all this content on. I spend roughly INR 10,000 (USD 173) just to keep this blog up and running. So, I need to cover this cost. Plus, it’d be nice to bring in some income for our family of four. And, this is where I request your support.
If you find my articles and stories useful or inspiring at some level, please help me sustain. Starting from 1 dollar or 100 rupees to whatever you can, do consider donating for the content I share; for my intention and the time and effort I put. Your support will go a long way in keeping this blog (of 8+ years) sparkling with stories for many more years to come. Thank you, dear ones. I’ll value what you’ll gift with love and kindness. :-)
