Technology is not good or bad, but its use is. This is 21st generation children. Keeping them away from elegant technology is like keeping them ignorant. But, it is important for elders to keep a check on the activities of children and introduce them a stimulating environment rather than incautiously hand them over to the world of technology.
Providing one such inspiring and exciting session for kids, Pritika Mehta is organising a special class where she will introduce them to much more that they can do with the computers and laptops. They can create a whole new virtual world just with use of right codes. It may sound a too daunting a task, but earlier they understand the world that beckons upon them the better. It is a matter a concern that India, which boasts the greatest bullion of IT minds may loose the coveted title soon only because our children have been exposed to the crudest form of IT in schools. Schools in China and US have already introduced coding as an essential part of curriculum, but Indian schools are yet to do so.

Dear Parents and elders, this is no time to wallow in memories of how beautiful your childhood was and complain how these kids are growing. It’s time to mend our ways and prepare them for the world that beckons upon them. Our responsibility doesn’t end with sending them to schools. We must fill in the gaps in knowledge where our education system is lacking.
