Diverse and united India is complex with many cultures and faiths, ways of life, dress and food habits, traditions and rituals. The different religions of the Hindu, Buddhist, Jain, Sikh, Muslim, Christian, with a variety of sects, and varying tribal religious beliefs are like petals of one flower.

This diversity extends over to Indian languages as well.

Google Classroom is a free online Learning Management System (LMS) that allows teachers to connect with their students online. It is a part of Google Apps Suite for Education and is accessible to all google account holders.  It is essentially a collaboration platform where the teachers can create online programs, lessons and students can access the lessons and interact with the teachers at their own pace.

"The syntax reminds us that 'I am taught' by a teacher; but 'I learn' from a book (or an assignment ...)" - L.C. Taylor

The central importance of language in primary education and the child's command over it is widely accepted. It's not difficult to see the reasons for this wide agreement.

Language teaching and teachers in the primary classes often ignore the fact that the child in the class is an extremely capable being. A child of four is a linguistic adult in the sense that she is able to communicate, conceptualise and reason in her own language. The child of four can do many other things as well including physical tasks, competently using spatial relations and transformations; visualizing, estimating and having a sense of number and quantity. She has acquired all this through a natural engagement with the world around her.

“Reading is like an infectious disease: it is caught not taught. (And you can't catch it from someone who hasn't got it…)       - Christine Nuttall (1983: 1927)
