Reading Books

A child with a toy dreams,

A child with a book travels.

In the picture, Malachi and Kayla are reading the story book ‘The Princess and the Crow’. They are the grandchildren of Rekha and Jam Dookna. Their grandparents are born in Mauritius Island. They are now settled in Stratford, London. Their father, Kiran is born,educated and married in England. The kids have not yet traveled to Mauritius or to any other part of the world.

They are discovering an island surrounded by the sea for the first time. They learn that children born on an island have darker skin, that tropical birds, fruits and flowers are different.

Rekha babysits with the kids on school holidays. She gives them books to read instead of a remote control to watch tv.

Reading books helps children to learn about the world around them,broaden their imagination,vision and knowledge. It also awakens their love and compassion for others.

  1. Dear Anita Bacha,

    Greetings! If you have been wondering about or noticing the scant presence of SoundEagle, then please kindly be informed that I have been away from the blogosphere for a long time until quite recently, as a result of having to deal with the daily demands of filial piety and caring duties, as explicated in the post lovingly crafted and published as a special eulogy entitled “Khai & Khim: For Always and Beyond Goodbye”, available at https://soundeagle.wordpress.com/2019/08/31/khai-khim-for-always-and-beyond-goodbye/

    Please kindly take your time to read it as it is very involved and multidisciplinary. Moreover, this multimedia eulogy is very extensive and is best viewed on the large screen of a desktop or laptop. In addition, there are plenty of my musical compositions and arrangements for you to relish in the eulogy, should you be curious or inclined to connect with SoundEagle in the sonic domain through the universal language of fine music.

    I am very delighted to have the opportunity to return here to greet you, and to see that you are doing well in general.

    May you find this autumn and the rest of the year very much to your liking and highly conducive to your writing, thinking and blogging!

    1. Thank you so much for the kind thoughts and warm words.
      I have been away too. Writer’s block and fatigue. Will be back soon.
      Here in Mauritius we are in the midst of summer. The heat is more conducive to lazying around, and letting go.
      Catch up with you soon.
      Happy November.
      Anita
