Talking about the terror act, Kangana says, “Pakistan has not only violated our nation’s security, they have also attacked our dignity by openly threatening and humiliating us. We need to take decisive actions or else our silence will be misunderstood for cowardice. Bharat is bleeding today, the killing of our sons is like a dagger in our gut, anyone who lectures about non-violence and peace at this time should be painted black, put on a donkey and slapped by everyone on the streets.” Further, on being asked about Shabana Azmi cancelling her Karachi event which she was supposed to attend with Javed Akhtar for celebrating her father Kaifi Azmi’s birthday centenary Kangana said, “People like Shabana Azmi calling for a halt on cultural exchange, they are the ones who promote Bharat tere tukade honge gangs...why did they organize an event in Karachi in the first place when Pakistani artistes have been banned after Uri attacks and now they are trying to save face.

Grow up, a set of exams is not going to determine your ward’s future, know your child’s ability and help him/ her manage the schedule the best way possible,” he stresses.

Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o and more. The movie became a rage among the fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Among them were the former US President, Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle Obama.

ADDRESS THE BASICS PARENTS MUST PREPARE THEMSELVES Priya Bhargava, mother to two teenagers, doesn’t shy away from admitting that she banks on her friends on some sane advice. “Trust me, I need some pep talk myself while helping my daughters to keep sane through the exams.” To ensure proper meals and rest through the pressure of revising the syllabus is a task in itself but even more important is to not pass on one’s own fear to the children. Over the years Priya has learnt to ensure proper nutrition and rest along with regular exercise for herself as well her daughters. “I now try to stick to a routine. We ensure that lights are out by 10 pm to get proper rest, carry on While it’s important to have a timeline in place, most basic issues in the rush of exams get overlooked – diet and sleep being the most important of them all. Children end up consuming a whole lot of junk to ward off the anxiety which is rather counterproductive. “Too much of junk coupled with sugary drinks leads to sugar crash – a foggy, tired mind is no help to prepare for a tough exam,” Dr Sabharwal warns. Another basic that is hugely undermined is the value of sleep. “If you don’t sleep, your brain is not going to retain what you have studied.” Sticking to timelines, nutritious meals and enough sleep while keeping a positive bent of mind is all it takes to sail through this storm.
