The rapidly rising coronavirus numbers in the last few weeks across the country have brought back the fear of yet another lockdown. Maharashtra has already imposed stricter restrictions starting 5th April 2021, and unsurprisingly Mrs Malhotra is worried. Hailing from South Bombay, the safety of her family matters the most to her but at the same time, she doesn’t want Ahaana to lose out on learning a new skill at this age. It is a Wednesday afternoon; she turns on her laptop and starts reading up about online workshops for students and children.
She has been observing Ahaana for some days now and had some sort of idea of what she wanted. The first thing she had to do is to find a list of extracurricular activities for which the workshops are conducted for. With the kind of information available on the internet, Mrs Malhotra is spoilt for choices but knows that she needs to find something that matches her daughter’s personality traits and if not that, something that would truly excite Ahaana as a child. A couple of hours later, Mrs Malhotra had managed to shortlist a few online workshops for students that she could now choose from.
