Guest Post: Hello Hello There…

Last week Ramya, who blogs at Chittrana wrote a post which had a collection of her poems. Almost all of them bowled me over, and that's when I knew, I wanted something like that on my page. Looking at her work, I feel she is underrated in terms of followers. She has a wonderful comic timing, but is also versatile enough to pull off a thriller or a serious issue. And on a personal level, although I never met her, I feel very connected to her, through her writing. A totally positive, spirited and a perky person, who better than her, to write the first guest post on Perky hours :-) So over to her now.

Hello Hello…
Jenny, I know her through her blogs and for sure I know you all will feel the same if I say that just by this acquaintance I feel very connected to her.  She is being my constant encouragement, now that she is ready to risk her reputation and to get me into limelight, I mean she asked me to do a guest post on her blog!!! Trust me, I was super nervous about her invitation. Please understand me I cannot risk ya! Perky Hours is so very pretty it has best readers and critics.
But then it’s dear Jenny who has given me this opportunity. So for her I started thinking and really thinking so as to come up with something really different from all of my blogs. I thought I will break out from nutshell and discuss about issues like effects of Pornography on children. But then as I started thinking I couldn’t stop laughing remembering the incident happened in my childhood when we hardly knew anything like this exists.
I was studying in class 7 and my sister dear Class 4. My sister one day told me she has a joke telling session and that she has no clue what to do. So I thought I should help her and find some jokes for her. I decided to go to my elderly cousin’s room as he had lot of books collected but hardly had he let us in his room anytime! So I planned well carefully sneaked in and picked a book which had “Jokes” in its title and rushed out of his room. I proudly asked my sister to take this and read out a joke from that.  That Friday, we both got into our respective classes. By afternoon an attendant came to my class and announced that Class 4 teacher wants to meet Ramya. I was super excited anticipating my appreciation but it turned out something like this…
As soon as I entered I saw my sister kneeling down and teacher full red eyed in anger…
Teacher: You gave this book to your sister
Me: Yes Mam jokes book
 SLAP
Me: Mam…
SLAP SLAP
I still pity my father who had to apologize for no mistake of his and to get me and my sister back home after finish our punishment of kneeling down for an hour after school hrs!!!
And it was only then I realized there are books which are to be read only by adults!!!
This was in the past but yes on a serious note this is a really big concern. Today in the internet age Kids have access to every possible things and its getting increasingly difficult for Parents to educate their kids on these lines. Any knowledge when half known is really dangerous but then how and who has to educate children on topics like sex? Yes Schools have to ensure proper Sex education but I also strongly recommend Parents to be aware of how much knowledge to be shared with their kids at every age and to gradually educate them to understand that sex is not something to try out or something to laugh about but it is about law of nature and one has to learn more about the same when he\she is mature enough to make their own decision.
Its wisdom to know but it is enlightenment to understand it fully.
Ok Friends, I leave you all with this thought!
And thank you Jenny for having given this chance to interact with your blog sphere.

    You have handled a senstivie topic wonderfully here. Sex education is important, and its high time we stop ignoring it and face it.

    Also, I liked the fact that you have put in a personal incident, which BTW was very hilarious, and Ramya like :-)

    Grateful again!

  6. This is called trust. Not even you both met but the faith and trust in you both has made u to take this step. I salute to it. No doubt that ramya is a wonderful blogger with so many skills , it is also true that she has been underrated with less followers. The start may be slow for ramya but the goal will definitely reached. The topic is. Very apt one. I am realising it as my kid now 5 years is growing up. He is observing the things and no questions till now. But the questions are going to come soon. The post is good one. May your both friendship blossom more and ramya get more followers soon. Keep entertaining us Jenny and ramya.

    1. Hey Gopi,

      Thanks a lot for your wishes. Me too very happy for having found nice friends like you.
      Yes very true when kids starts asking questions you got to be really careful about the amount of information you want the kid to know.
      Really a challenging task to parents.
      Thanks for your wishes and encouragement

  7. Ramya… very well written. It indeed is very serious topic and you had handled it very well. I feel really sad for the punishment you and your sister got for no fault of yours. A very light hearted but at the same time highly important post! And you handled it sensibly and sensitively!

    1. Yeah not every teacher will know how to deal with such situation they could have taught us that it was not for our age, as we got punished we always thought reading or knowing about it is a big crime...

      Thanks :D for your Encouragement :D

  13. Firstly thanks to Jenny for letting us (whoever don't know about Ramya) know about her...:) Ramya that's a good topic you have discussed in there. We can never stop children from accessing it because somehow they will have access to it. So the best way is to educate them as to what is good and what is acceptable and how the same is to be discussed with others. Enjoyed reading your guest post Ramya...Cheers..:)

  15. Nice post, thanks Jenny for introducing her. Ramya you are right things are different now and we need to educate the gen next without being shy on this issue. So in my opinion parents should be educated first that how and when this issue to be discussed to their kids.

  18. Nice points Ramya! And nice post too..

    I too strongly believe that the onus on teaching kids with proper and right stuffs lies on Home and school. As thats where the kids are most of the times. At home watching tv, on the net, watching parents and their behavior. At School observing fellow friends, their behavior, being inspired by stuffs (good and bad alike).. We cannot stop them from 'bad' behavior but we can surely control them :)
