Oh God! Can I never escape from the trauma of Craft work. When I was a kid, life was really simple. There were two kinds of people who existed on this planet, those who were good in craft and those who were not. I belonged to the latter and compensated by focusing on academics. But this ghost of craft has never really left me. It seeks its revenge through my kids. ‘Project work’ from schools just aims at that. I dread the summer holidays when there is a project work for every subject, which no common kid (like mine) can possibly handle. I hoped my better half would probably be adept in these projects. But he turned out to be even worse. He had nothing to offer save a sympathetic look. And pray why can’t teachers think beyond ‘global warming’, ice melting of poles, ‘nuclear disasters,’ as topics. Parents with poor craft skills have known to ‘purchase’ these projects from stores. What then is the whole idea of asking kids to do such projects. I seriously think that teachers should actually find out what has been the kids contribution towards these projects. They would be in for a real surprise.
On the other hand, if they choose to ignore the reality and continue with these projects, please do me a favour. Can I have the name of the store that sells such stuff. It will save me from such a bother
