Project Management/Personality Development for children

Rajesh Nair, a project management expert conducted a unique personality development workshop at our library that enlightened children about the importance of setting a target, planning by building a schedule, managing time, communicating well and working together as a team. The workshop primarily aimed at promoting Project Management as a Life Skill for a group smart kids of age 10-15 who are all set to become scientists. doctors, engineers, artists, cartoonists, astronauts etc.
The group was very active, had lots of questions and quickly related to the PM concepts. Rajesh wrapped up the session with Project Management Institute Educational Foundation “Tower game” . Children enjoyed the game, that was fun and informative at the same time.
Thanks to Rajesh for making the complex topic simple and interesting for the children.

Butterfinger’s author at Children’s Library

Prize winning author Smt. Khyrunnisa’s visit to the Children’s Library on November 9 created a rich, powerful connection between children and reading. She had our young participants enthused, enthralled, involved and hanging on to her every word. Children were engaged from the minute she started narrating her journey as a writer right through the reading of her wonderful books!


It was a unique experience for the children to know about the writing process-finding ideas for inspiration, drafting a story through words and pictures, revising and editing before it goes for publishing. They asked wonderful questions and the author responded with patience, encouragement, and enthusiasm.


She read excerpts from her own book “Howzzat Butterfingers” followed by “The Puffin book of Funny Stories” and also from one out of Richmal Crompton’s William series. The session ended with a fun quiz that tested the group’s knowledge of children’s literature.
