The fear phobia is the panic that grips the mind to zoom and spin off to a nightmarish experience. It is a mental state of mind when anxiety pops off ‘What will happen’ and than creates thoughts, which has a negative influence. It is like a irrational phobia which makes a person uncertain and confused what would be the impact and outcome of the future happening.

With the recent disaster of Tsunami, it even reminds us of the Earthquake in India which occured during 26th Jan-Republic Day. Fear grips the mind at the very thought of the NYC Disaster too! Many people who narrate their experiences of the Tsunami, Earthquake or the NYC disaster, their hands would go clammy, their knees would shake, eyes would blur, feel fearful and have nightmares making them feverish till date. It's time to Stop Feeling the blues, to Freeze the Phobia - God has ever fashioned a way to rule his world, we only have to experience his creations. Let's wish all, the Best of the World and join hands to pray for peace.Let the Tsunami Fear lurk into past memories forever.

Swami Vivekanand said, "As you have come into this world, leave some marks behind. Otherwise, there is no difference between you and the stones and the trees" It is said that a human need to engage in self conscious activity. Teach self, train the self. Call upon a sleeping soul and see how it awakens. Power will come, glory will come, goodness will come, purity will come and everything that is excellent will come. When excellence comes, this is the time to carefully climb the ladders of success as one has to leave footsteps on the sands of life.

On 12th Jan, being Vivekanand's birthday, collect Swami Vikvekanand Gems and let his Quotes take you to higher grounds to be a success and leave footsteps behind.

Remember Sherlock Holmes? Do you like to solve the Mystery of the detective tales?


It's so thrilling and chill you if you love this character, sure indeed! Holmes ended up hating his own creation, but we have loved and cherished it, idealizing each one of Sherlock's traits and even molding some of ours to look like his. Now go forth and enjoy all that Sherlock Holmes has to offer on the fall of his birthday – 6th January. Peek-a-boo into Kidsfreesouls to hook up to stay connected at Brainy Stuff (You be the Detective)and solve the Detective mystery cases too! Critic Christopher Morley said of Holmes, "Perhaps no fiction character ever created has become so charmingly real to his readers." Yeah, Sherlock Holmes was created by the British Author Arthur Conan Doyle! It is said, Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson lived at 221b Baker Street between 1881-1904, according to the stories written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. The house was last used as a lodging house in 1936 and the famous 1st floor study overlooking Baker Street is still faithfully maintained as it was kept in Victorian Times. You can even send a Sherlock Holmes E-card to your friends!

Jakob Grimm was born on 4th Jan. who gave us beautiful fairy tales. How oft we remember dreaming - day dreams as a child and letting our imagination run wild! The Grimm's Fairy Tales are all *Five* Favourite Stars in my Read and Make Read collection in my Library. Some of my fav stories are:
1. Hansel & Gretel
2. Red Riding Hood
3. Snow White
4. Rumpelstiltskin
5. Cinderalla
6. Sleeping Beauty
Many More...you name it and these stories make your dreams sound true! Children love to read and listen. Even write reviews. Like the Grimms Fairy Fantasy, there are many tales that shows the importance of friendship, courage, strength, sacrifice etc. but it is more important on how the child selects to write the Book review and while writing the ‘Best Part’ of the story and his ‘Opinion’ of the story, the parent or the teacher can realize the mode of his life turn swirling towards a direction which can be motivated and encouraged towards being a better person. One cannot teach ‘Personality Development’ in a day or two just with a few lectures here or there but it is the day to day upbringing of the children right from the ‘Jump Start’ - Here are some fairy tales that illustrate moral values.
