Venturing into Professional Spaces

Drawing, painting and dramatics are the activities children of all generations have grown up doing. But the case is not the same today. They are venturing into fields that were reserved only for adults like writing a book or cooking or robotics

Chefs in the making

We are not taking about the cooking on the miniature gas stoves that most children, especially girls, might have in their toys bag. Children are now are venturing in to real kitchens. Haven’t you seen the last season of the television show Junior Master Chef?  It is not just on screen, but children in the city too are attracted by forks and knives. 

They are now under professional guidance, wearing an apron and spending time to become experts in cooking and baking.

Young Engineers

Young Engineers.JPGWhile it is a common aspiration of most Indian parents to see their children become engineer, one hardly expects them to start as early as seven years of age. In the age where earlier kids used to learn the difference between herbivores and carnivores, youngsters now are learning the robotics or coding. City-based EduRobo is one organisation that has been conducting workshops in robotics where children are trained about the different aspects of robotics and make simple prototypes. The idea is to introduce children to the world of real robotics and enable them to be familiarised with future technologies.

Weaving amateur thoughts

While many children might be struggling to understand and mug those four liner poems or mathematical formulae that are being taught in school, a few have come a long way and have published their books. And all these children have their way of doing things. Rasana Atreya, a self publisher who also helps children to publish their books tells us that stories written by children are much simpler, thought-provoking and the content in them is fresh. “They are also highly imaginative. They come with simple yet powerful messages. They also have illustrations that are far more attractive than others,” she informs adding technology also is an added advantage to children.  Apart from Rasana’s children Aamani and Sunnad gurajada who published their book Mosquito and the Tea pot, Syed Shehzor Mujthedi, all of 12 years published his illustrated novel, 7 Beasts last year.
