Child’s Play

Parenting! Currently this appears to be the most debated topic of conversation. From media to blogs to non-parents even – everyone has an opinion on how YOU should be raising YOUR kids. We seem to be living our lives under constant scrutiny and worse – fear of judgement. Are we so clouded with “What’s out there” that we do not see what’s right in front of us? Our kids? The ones who come into our lives and change them forever, the ones who never judge us and happily overlook our flaws, the ones who we actually are answerable to – and not the faceless keyboard warriors out there isn’t it.

Also, I take it as a good sign when my contributors ask me for the next theme even before the current one is published.

Mischief Managed!

Hello Hello! or should I say Ho Ho Ho!

Well the year is almost coming to an end, and I do not know about you but I am ready to slow down now – which seems highly unlikely right now actually. Take this issue for example. When I started “The Ramble Roundup” I had in mind a feature of 10-12 pages. This one has 30! AND this just the second issue of the magazine! But this is all thanks to the amazing contributors and of course our readers!
