Check background of your child’s care takers

Every deci­sion that you take for your child is very cru­cial. Each of it will have a greater impact on their future. If you are try­ing to keep your child in a baby care cen­ter, then you must do a thor­ough check on the play school that you want to join your child and also see what kind of staff is work­ing there. You ensure that the staff present there are qual­i­fied and good enough to take care of your child. It is tough to do back­ground check on your own, so it is bet­ter to take help of some orga­ni­za­tion which will do this work and it eases your prob­lems. Intelius is one such com­pany which is lead by Naveen Jain, a MBA grad­u­ate. This orga­ni­za­tion empow­ers its con­sumers with online infor­ma­tion for per­sonal pro­tec­tion and intel­li­gent decisions.

The rea­son why I men­tioned this orga­ni­za­tion for the above kinds of sit­u­a­tions is, it is doing a free back­ground checks to the Boys & Girls Club of Belle­vue. Naveen Jain, is presently the CEO of the Intelius, is the key per­son in tak­ing this deci­sion. Usu­ally back­ground checks and infor­ma­tion about the care tak­ers is costly but if you can get this for free, then you can use that money for phil­an­thropic works. Boys & Girls Club employ­ees and vol­un­teers are respon­si­ble for a vari­ety of duties, includ­ing coach­ing sports activ­i­ties, lead­ing after school tutor­ing and men­tor­ing, and serv­ing as gen­eral instruc­tors, ref­er­ees and score­keep­ers. In less than three years of busi­ness, Intelius has gained more than three mil­lion cus­tomers who use Intelius’ infor­ma­tion to pro­tect their loved ones, busi­nesses and assets.

Naveen Jain has worked in Microsoft before start­ing this com­pany and is now head­ing a com­pany is another exam­ple of suc­cess­ful entre­pre­neur­ship. I wish him all the best.

How to Write Poetry? (Part II)

In the pre­vi­ous post, we looked at var­i­ous ways to get started with poetry. We looked at express­ing our feel­ings, our senses effec­tively. Now we would look at few things which can prove to be extremely important.

Read Poetry:

Read­ing poetry is con­sid­ered one of the vital ingre­di­ents to writ­ing poetry. It not only gives you the strength of vocab­u­lary but also it gives you the strength of pow­er­ful imagery. Using metaphors effec­tively is one of the para­me­ters which dis­tin­guish a good poem from a nor­mal one. Ini­tially when you read great work you tend to get over­pow­ered by their style and their words. Some­times you would tend to lend their style. Watch out against this. Remem­ber they too must have started from square one. It’s their gift of vision that sep­a­rated them from oth­ers. Let me remind you again that hav­ing an absolutely first class, orig­i­nal vision help when it comes to words.

Walk away from drudgery:

Walk Away From Drudgery

You need to allow your­self time and space to come up with ideas. Until you lie down in a sofa and allow your­self a reverie you would not appre­ci­ate all your feel­ings. Each of our senses lives the same feel­ing dif­fer­ently. So if you don’t give time to your­self to indulge with the idea of a spec­tac­u­lar thought, you don’t fully live that moment. You need to move from the present realm of chores and ten­sions to the world of a beau­ti­ful thought. The moment you live each moment fully, you are ready to write poems which every­one else would die to read. Remem­ber the sole idea of poetry is to lift you from your present world and get you to a world of you and yourself.

Write and Share:

Start writ­ing! Start with few words which you already mocked up in your mind. Some­times the poems are not fin­ished in one sit­ting, but keep­ing it for long would also dimin­ish the flu­id­ity of the thought. Choos­ing a topic close to your heart shall help. If the topic is a pain stak­ing expe­ri­ence then you can use third per­son tone to bring about the pain. Do not hes­i­tate to take opin­ion of oth­ers. Remem­ber they always want to hear about someone’s expe­ri­ence which is dif­fer­ent from them. All the opin­ion is con­struc­tive. After the entire step to fur­ther heights stops at all positives.

Happy Poetry!

How to Write Poetry?

At some point in time, most of us must come across verses which take our breath away. In these moments we pon­der about the beauty of the writ­ing because it plays with our imag­i­na­tion. How can a small heap of lines play with our mind, tran­scend­ing us sur­re­ally? If you have ever been touched by lines so deeply that they made you think about writ­ing poetry then you might find this post interesting.

Golden Rule:

There is no wrong poetry. There is no absolute advice to poetry. Every poet devel­ops his/her own flair over a period of time.

We will talk of very fun­da­men­tal nuances involved in poetry. I believe, this should help you kick start your jour­ney to infinite­ness, if you have already fid­dled with the idea of poem writing.

Poetry is gen­er­ally imag­i­na­tive writ­ing. It depicts the reflec­tion of reac­tions and emo­tions. Like most other form of writ­ten words, it is not restricted by bound­aries. It still main­tains a slight rigid­ity with respect to the plot, but that is mainly to avert the read­ers from oscil­lat­ing too much with imag­i­na­tions. Stim­u­lat­ing piece of poem writ­ing is honed over time. All you can bring into poetry is your un-blurred vision of a moment. The words would come with time. Remem­ber it always helps to have a first class, orig­i­nal, insight vision of a thought.


As you must have realised by now imag­i­na­tion is the foun­da­tion to poetry. If you are look­ing for inspi­ra­tion, you should be look­ing around you. There is no def­i­nite place to find inspi­ra­tion. It strikes you when you are least expect­ing it. But you should be ready to cap­ture it once it strikes you. If you are look­ing to pen down strik­ing notes, you should allow your­self to appre­ci­ate the beauty of an inspiration/imagination. If you let in other tasks to soak you up, the instant of pure magic will always remain clouded. Remem­ber you don’t live the same instance twice. Pen it down, keep a note of it.

Now that we lived the moment we would look at fur­ther steps to process it into a poem. A poem is always an individual’s per­spec­tive. A same scene can appeal to two dif­fer­ent indi­vid­u­als dif­fer­ently. It is always how it caters to your senses. It is almost guar­an­teed that a par­tic­u­lar thing would appeal to the five senses of dif­fer­ent per­sons dif­fer­ently. Draw strength from the fact that a reader is always eager to know what you felt. So use imagery. Express your feel­ings, not the bor­rowed feelings.

We will look at other ingre­di­ents of poetry in the next post.

Express Yourself

When we started this brain child blog of ours, we had envis­aged a world where all of us could co-create/interact with ease. We empha­sized on chan­nels where you could claw back from the abyss of mis­un­der­stood pot­hole. Lan­guage is an expres­sion, reflect­ing our reac­tions. Eng­lish lan­guage is one of the path­ways to stream­line your latent emo­tions to a broader audience.

Some­times to recre­ate the whole micro­cosm of an event train, a pho­to­graph serves our under­stand­ing bet­ter than words.

Pho­tog­ra­phy records the gamut of feel­ings writ­ten on the human face, the beauty of the earth and skies that man has inher­ited, and the wealth and con­fu­sion man has cre­ated. It is a major force in explain­ing man to man.~Edward Ste­ichen

A good pho­to­graph almost bor­rows real­ity from the sur­round­ings. Pho­tog­ra­phy schools train you to cap­ture the thought that you have visu­alised. Though many say that a pho­to­graph is as good as your thought but to cap­ture the real­ity into a paper, it needs fine tun­ing of skills by pho­tog­ra­phy schools. Pho­tog­ra­phy schools not only bring out your best but also pro­vide you infi­nite oppor­tu­ni­ties to spring board a career.

We just saw how we can express our­selves through pho­tographs. It is just one form of the art that bring out our thoughts. In gen­eral an art school inspires you to play around with your cre­ativ­ity, self inter­ests by pro­vid­ing you with stim­u­lat­ing chal­lenges to test your skills. The chances start with your own home. Being equipped with skills from the inte­rior design schools can por­tray your home to reflect the gen­eral mood of the house-the gai­ety, the joy.

As you would have noticed by now, there is a vast world of expres­sion beyond lan­guage that con­nects to our senses. Art in its var­i­ous man­i­fes­ta­tions helps us to unravel our latent fronts. Art schools not only nour­ish your fig­ment of imag­i­na­tion but also pro­vide ample career opportunities.
