Over the last month, I have written articles on whales, stars, books, mars etc for a children’s newspaper.

For as long as I can remember, I have been writing— whether it is in the form of diary entries or to-do lists, poetry or prose, op-eds or letters. But out of all these forms, I have learnt the most by writing for children.


And I don’t mean for students. This is for educators who are always walking the thin line between information and too much information.
