ପିଣ୍ଟି, ବେଙ୍ଗୁଲି ଓ ଚଢ଼େଇ


So,  was browsing through some of the famous local stores & online stores & couldnt find Odia story books for my 10-month old toddler. I mean English books are also fine, but my aim is to draw her interest towards reading without making any of our lives difficult (Be it the pain of translating it in the mind, or the pain of making the toddler understand a different language or the discomfort of my aunties/ Grandma - Aaee in reading the English text out loud to the Baby with whom they have been conversing in Odia).

So a short story not only for her, but to help out all of us in the family :)

So as we enter the training room, I realise its as good as any conference halls from the finest of cities! There are around 23 trainers who have come for this session. They have traveled from their (tribal dominated) villages, where they are presently conducting classes of ALP (Adult Literacy), thanks to Sparsh. So my work? To train the trainer - TOT. To make them comfortable with the TCS built software, which can make their lives easier along with making learning more structured, fun for the villagers and of course to introduce computers.

TCS has donated 10 computers after a long approval process and now the software and the training is a part of its own CSR :-). All thanks to the efforts of our CSR coordinator, Priya Mahapatra. As I start interacting with these trainers, their Simplicity & Innocence hits me. They are so soft spoken I cant hear them standing just next to them with my ears stretched! One moment I feel the despair, how am I going to finish the session and come out satisfied if I don't get any interaction? How would I know if the purpose was fulfilled? Will they be able to go back and use the computer software and teach?
