Best practices for Device Usage across age groups -   Episode 40

Best practices for Device Usage across age groups - Episode 40

April 24, 2021

The pandemic has made devices easily accessible, even a necessity, amongst children across all age groups. We did not have enough time to prepare for this, fully understanding the pros and cons of it. Before March 2020, discussions around device usage happened with the context that device usage is optional, for children.  That is no longer the case. Do we have time to discuss, debate and figure out what steps we need to take when the children already have access ? Or, is it OK to not bother about it ?

 

In this episode, we have Aruna Sankaranarayanan, an author and psychologist who has done a lot of research in this area.  Her first book, Zero Limits: Things Every 20 Something Should Know, which will be published by Rupa Publications, includes a chapter on the responsible use of digital technology.

 

We explore questions around device usage across various age groups. If you do an Internet search, you are likely to come across suggestions for device usage amongst young children. What about older children ? What is relevant and practical in today's scenario ?  If you are looking for best practice  recommendations, do not miss this episode.

And in the process, my aim is to help  you, The New Indian woman, to realize your potential, chase your dreams and aspirations, utilize the wonderful opportunities available in today's world.

 

What's in this episode:

 

We start by defining what device usage means and whether we should be concerned about children's device usage.

 

Some of the questions she responds to and pointers she shares are :

  • The maximum permissible daily limits of device usage for different age groups
  • It is not enough to look at this in terms of minutes/hours, but how it is spent
  • These limits are based on what kind of impact
  • Whether usage with headphones or earphones are OK
  • How to handle the issue of privacy when it comes to usage by teens
  • Importance of looking at child's overall development and is a mother best placed to assess this
  • How to talk to older children about appropriate usage and Things parents should never do
  • How to handle the scenario of cyberbullying and accessing inappropriate content
  • Is it possible and OK to put barriers ?
  • How to realize if the child has become addicted to devices ?
  • Importance of arriving at rules, together with children and the need for parents to also adhere to these rules
  • How to handle violation of device usage related rules
  • How parents can influence good device behaviour

We then examine how parents can use the device itself  to engage with the child and what could be the golden rule here..

 

Aruna then talks about how her upcoming book will help the young adults.

 

There are tons of valuable and actionable steps for you, the New Indian Woman, from this episode. If you have any questions, please feel free to write to me at krishna@thenewindianwoman.com

Chat with the renowned musician Bindhumalini - Part 2 - Episode 38

March 27, 2021

Listen to Part 2 of the  chat with Bindhumalini Narayanaswamy, popular singer and composer.  She has won National Award and Filmfare award as best playback singer for a Kannada film she composed and sung songs for. She has chosen to follow her passion and strived to explore different avenues and genres in music, from Kabir to several women poets across the centuries.

In this episode we talk about what it means to be a musician couple, creativity and spontaneity vs planning, what a musician's daily life looks like, do they really live in a different realm and lots more…

In Part 1,  we focused on her initial training in music and many other areas, what it means to try out various things and what influences our individual journeys. She talked about winning the award, discovering Kabir and the power of music, as well as facing judgements. Part 1 is available in Episode 37 and the link to the web version is here - https://www.thenewindianwoman.com/podcast/episode/2ca5cab1/chat-with-the-renowned-musician-bindhumalini-part-1-episode-37

And in the process, my aim is to help  you, The New Indian woman, to realize your potential, chase your dreams and aspirations, utilize the wonderful opportunities available in today's world.

 

What's in this episode:

 

Bindhumalini talks about what it means for her and her husband to be in the musical field and the advantages and the constant learnings that it entails. Then we move on to discussing the daily life and if music is an intrinsic part of her day.

 

We discuss the relevance of spontaneity vs planning, where what is required. Is planning a challenge for someone in creative space. All of you who give your reasons for the chaos out there, you need to listen to this part of the episode definitely. Bindhu talks about the need to harness spontaneity and she talks about how responsibility plays a role in this. Then we explore about music and art forms, whether they exist in a different realm, away from the real world.

 

Bindhu talks about challenges that people in music and performing arts face and what we, as listeners, should or should not do. We discuss the importance of reflection and how it can influence our daily life. Gender and the culture of women having to sacrifice, how our relevance keeps changing and the need to adapt to it and what freedom means - these are interesting topics where we get to hear Bindhu's thoughts.

 

And towards the end, Bindhu, true to her character, ignores the minimal audio setup for this podcast and sets out to sing and there too she makes a conscious choice of what to sing.

 

And with this, we end the 2 Part series on Bindhumalini! Hope you enjoyed this episode.

Chat with the renowned musician Bindhumalini - Part 1 - Episode 37

And in the process, my aim is to help  you, The New Indian woman, to realize your potential, chase your dreams and aspirations, utilize the wonderful opportunities available in today's world.

 

What's in this episode:

 

Bindhumalini starts with her journey into the world of music  and her formal education across 2 graduate degrees, a Post Graduate Degree and a Diploma across various areas. She chooses to analyse these trials  from different perspectives and makes this very clear message - "How I apply skills and what I use it for is very important for me". The learning for us starts, right from the first few moments of this episode! And there's more to come..

 

Some of the questions she responds to and thoughts she articulates are :

  • Trials and failures - or is there something called failure - importance of having fun
  • What made her choose the not so convention route in music ?
  • Questions on who I am and why certain things are done, need to look at music from a fresh perspective.
  • The need to break things down and then reconstruct and the exciting possibilities that emerge
  • Being immersed in music also creating a demand
  • Curiosity vs rebellion
  • Importance of saying "I don’t know" to children
  • What Kabir means to her and how her sister's book helped in that
  • How she sees music and the importance of lyrics
  • How it is important to listen to music for anyone to be able to produce music

 

She then shares how she felt when she heard about winning the National Award and how something like this can never be a goal. And why she is extra happy about that particular song and movie! We then chat about the topic of judgements and stereotypes and the questions these trigger…

 

Yes, of course, the chat continues and you need to wait for Part 2 to listen to her talk more - on topics you rarely get to hear from renowned people!

Reimagining Festivals -   Episode 36

Reimagining Festivals - Episode 36

February 27, 2021

Welcome to a chat on looking at festivals, the need to reimagine and adapt them to today's context. I invite you to this chat with my friend Srividya where we explore our memories of festivals, what they mean to us and how we can play a role in creating memories for our children and enjoy it differently.

 

Does this mean we stop celebrating our traditional festivals ? Definitely not. Don’t we have enough festivals to start thinking about new ones ? Do they sometimes feel as a burden for the busy Indian woman ? Do they sometimes feel just a ritual, having lost their meaning ? How to make sure festivals help us find the laughter, fun, love, sharing and gratitude in today's context ?

 

If these are the questions in your mind, you would love this chitchat. You may get some ideas to try out with your family. And of course, we are waiting to hear your ideas on this topic.

 

 Listen on ..

And in the process, my aim is to help  you, The New Indian woman, to realize your potential, chase your dreams and aspirations, utilize the wonderful opportunities available in today's world.

 

What's in this episode:

 

My friend Srividya and me relive an earlier chat we had on this topic of festivals. We start with the intent of festivals and what comes to our mind. We look at whether it means the same for our children.

 

What about the smaller festivals for which we may not know the meaning ? We then discuss the feedback from children on festivals - these sure are pointers for you to have such a discussion at home.

 

We explore the concept of picking up a new "festival" or "special day" to try out or reimagine. We discuss examples of trying this out instead of the routine shopping as per the various festival sales or  eating out. Or, doing these itself in a different way.

 

We then move on gifting, connecting across generations and even playing games as a family. And of course, exploring interesting outings. Plus, we look at doing something over a long period of time, questioning festival as an event associated with a day or a few days.

 

Then, we get into the practical ways of going about it, if you want to start trying this.

 

We examine the scope for reimagining along with our traditions as well!

 

And of course, we would like to hear from you on what you have tried out or your ideas. Head over to our facebook page or twitter handle to share your ideas and experiences! Together we can arrive at a wonderful list of "Ideas for Reimagining festivals".

Journey to social awareness - with Deepa Pawar(Eng & Hindi) -   Episode 33

Journey to social awareness - with Deepa Pawar(Eng & Hindi) - Episode 33

January 9, 2021

What does it take to start from a place where one is most disadvantaged at multiple fronts, to run an organization that focusses on youth leadership and community development ?

 

We meet Deepa Pawar, founder of Anubhuti, an organisation working in the area of Youth Leadership. She is from one of the nomadic tribes that is Economically, socially and  intellectually challenged. She struggled to complete her education, started working from the age of 14 and eventually earned her post graduate degree, becoming the first person to do so from her community. She faced a lot of challenges from within her community.

 

She works as trainer and counsellor with the most vulnerable communities, as well as with government officials and corporates. She is a published author, poet and a member in many committees. In Anubhuti team, Deepa handles visioning, project designing, trainings, module-making, networking and advocacy. Anubhuti is formed and self-led by women, who have dealt with caste, class, gender, language and ethnicity based discrimination.

 

Deepa talks about the importance of youth intervention, challenges faced at the grass roots level as well as youth from privileged backgrounds, what does discrimination mean and how we may be perpetuating it, on feminism, on freedom and the importance of knowing the essence of constitution and where we could start our journey to become a socially aware citizen and encourage the youth around us in this direction.

 

And this is a special episode for New Indian Woman podcast as for the very first time we have a bilingual episode with Deepa talking in Hindi and me in English. The narrative all English version is available in episode 34..

What the New Indian Woman podcast is about

As you may already be aware, this podcast has 2 focus areas. One, We examine the challenges faced by today's Indian woman and proposes ACTIONABLE strategies in the Indian context, on a wide variety of topics - right from identifying their passion to better productivity and parenting.  Second,  We meet women who chose to aspire or have a dream beyond their defined roles  and facilitates sharing of what worked and what didn’t, for them. Today's episode falls in the second category.

What's in this episode:

 

Deepa starts with the reasons why she chose to continue in the development sector and then she talks about what Youth Leadership actually means.

 

Some of the questions she responds to are :

  • What does development mean ?
  • Is youth from privileged community individualistic ?
  • What should be our priorities ?
  • How privilege is relative ?
  • Why we should know about discrimination ?
  • Where does awareness start ?
  • Are we aware of our child's dignity ?
  • Are we aware of the daily violence we engage in ? How do we address this ?
  • What should be our approach to the mental health of the youth around us ?
  • What kind of issues are there in privileged classes that are not seen at grass roots level ?

 

She then talks about her ideas of feminism and freedom and how she loves to dream and shares her dreams, they are very different indeed! And then, she has a very special message for us..
