Top 10 reasons that makes BYJU’s a Leader in the Indian Ed tech Sector.

“You don’t understand anything until you learn it more than one way.” Marvin Minsky.

The way we learn new things has undergone a tremendous change with the advent of the Internet. And with the advent of apps, knowledge gathering has become even more interesting. These are some of the apps i check on a regular basis

The recent developments have pushed the World to hitherto unknown or experienced circumstances have brought in a different lifestyle. Work from Home has become the new normal. For the education sector, online classes are the go-to solutions and are proving to be beneficial for many in times like this.

Here are 10 reasons why one should check out Byju’s learning app

1.The convenience of Learning anytime

Time is the essence of life. With every moment passing, we miss an opportunity to learn or experience new things. What if we have the convenience of learning new things anytime, as you wish? That too in the most engaging way?  I happened to come across the Byju’s Learning App and decided to try it out for my nephew who is in 10th std. Now as the schools are closed, thanks to the pandemic and all the classes happening online, sometimes the students miss the personalised attention. The 10th, 11th and 12th classes are very crucial for higher learning. These are the classes where most of the fundamentals are learnt. And it is most likely that in situations like these where a student misses personal attention, chances are that he or she might lose interest in the subject. This is where Byju’s learning app comes in handy. The App makes the learning interesting and easy.

2. Personalised Learning

This is the era of personalisation. Personalisation brings in engagement and interest. If we could learn something as we like, then the learning process becomes much easier and fun. Byju’s offers personalised learning. This, according to me, is a huge benefit. The kids learn fast and eventually they develop a liking with the subjects.   

  • 3. Parental Monitoring 

Some kids are self motivated and most of the time don’t need parental monitoring in their studies. But this is not the case with the majority.  Byju’s App offers Parental control and helps in monitoring the daily progress of their kid’s learning. 

4. Make them Involve!

Remember the famous quote by Benjamin Franklin, “Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.” Yes the best way to learn is by involving the students. 

5. Challenge Them

Kids love challenges. Challenging oneself helps in improving the skills. It also make the student more inquisitive. The options like taking part in Quiz challenges one’s knowledge and potential.

6. Video Formats     

Presenting anything visually has a much more impact than presenting the same in text. The modules are in video format and this makes the learning process less time consuming.

7. Make it Fun

By making the modules and lessons fun, students get involved in the learning process and grasp the lessons faster.

8. Ed -Tech, the new normal

With the ever increase of various Ed- Tech solutions, Byju’s, being a pioneer in this have come a long way.  Students using Ed Tech solutions have a clear advantage over others. This will also help them in future, in their professional careers. 

9. Flexible options to choose

Byju’s comes up with various options to choose. Your kid can select the module that suites his / her aptitude. 

10. Study materials  for competitive exams

The app covers almost all the major competitive exams in India.  The materials are quite rich with content. 

So these are some of the highlights I have experienced in the Byju’s learning app. This is one of the best learning apps, especially during these testing times.

And I would like to know from you why ed-tech is essential for children. You may take this small survey by clicking the link below which would hardly take a minute to complete.

Notes from the Archives – 4 Light & Lively ’21’.

Some products / brands are only limited to a particular place. Products like Tirunelveli Iruttu kadai halwa. Its made by a family in Tirunelveli and till recently it was only available in that particular shop but now things have changed and you can order the awesome Tirunelveli Iruttu kadai halwa online. Same is the case with Charagh Din shirts. They had only one showroom throughout India, only in Mumbai. But then now its available online too.

This drink was only available in Delhi city. Not sure why it was only restricted to Delhi, was it because of lack of distribution, or to maintain the exclusivity? or to test the market?

Anyway do you remember any brands like this?

Krop Toothpicks : Herbal chewing picks

Dental care is something we take it for granted. Most of us hardly take care of our dental health, until it starts hurting.

Now Dental care or Oral care is all about keeping your teeth and mouth clean. Most common and practised way is  brushing teeth regularly, at least twice a day.  It is also advisable to have a dental checkup done once in  six months.

Lot of dental care depends on what we eat and how we clean our mouth after that. We use various methods to clean , be it tooth pastes or mouth wash or any other ways.  Usage of Toothpicks also helps in cleaning the teeth, especially after a meal or so. I recently come across Krop Toothpicks and found it interesting, you know how?

Its a multipurpose one, Krop toothpicks can be used for cleaning the teeth and also can be chewed. Yeah its Herbal Chewing Picks. It is a mouth freshener and are available in 3 different flavours Clove, Cinnamon and Mint.

Essential oils are used in Krop Toothpicks, which stop tooth decay now I have become a fan of this herbal toothpicks.

Bombay Shirt Company- The Story Of My Shirt!

So When was the last time you wore a shirt customised for you? For me it was during school days 🙂 mainly before the commencement of the school after the summer holidays.  Going to the local tailor shop was fun, that was the only time we used to get an idea about the latest fashion trends, tailor was our hero. He knew so many things about various styles of shirting, which hero wears what style and all.

Times changed. The era of ready -made shirts came. It was a big rage, so many varieties, trends and styles. But the fun of whole process of making your own shirt had gone.

Bombay Shirt Company

Recently I came to know about the Bombay Shirt Company and how they customise shirts. I got curious and decided to visit the outlet.

This is the story of my Shirt!

The Level of Customisation.

I was surprised by the level of customisation Bombay Shirt Company offers. Right from fabrics (both Indian and International brands) to Collars, Buttons, Leather, Twill tapes and Suede. You get a good amount of choices to pick in these various categories. Enough options to choose!

So I spent a good amount of time, going through all the options and designed my shirt.

The experience was great, the staff were courteous and helpful.  And here I am proudly wearing the shirt i designed.  at the Bombay Shirt Company, Adyar outlet.

During my usual grocery shopping at the nearby store, I happened to see this interesting pack, written as Mysore Sandal Sir M V 100 Agarbathies.

KSDL is World’s largest producer of Sandalwood oil.

He is a recipient of the Indian highest civilian honour, the Bharat Ratna and was knighted by the British. His birthday day , 15 September is celebrated as Engineer’s Day. He was the chief engineer responsible for the construction of the Krishna Raja Sagara dam in Mysore as well as the chief designer of the flood protection system for the city of Hyderabad.
