School kids zone Lesson 1 – How to draw a flower?

I am teaching my son Alan who is studing in St. Britto’s Academy Vellachery, Chennai (A Matriculation School) the drawing lessons. I learned the drawing from my father Mr. D. Samuel M.A., M.Ed. (who was a Social Science teacher and an Artist in Schwartz Higher Secondary School, Ramanathapuram). I am trying to teach all the basics of drawing through my blog, so that this talent will be forwarded to the next generation.

Stick no bills – Drink and pay bills

I took this photo in Tirunagar,Madurai. A boy (school boy) was selling Tender coconut. When there was no customer he was studying his text book. Although we (govt)are talking about child labour it is still happening. Another interesting thing you can see a wall saying “stick no bills”. But no one respond to the instruction. Just below that big advertisements are drawn, why because the rules and laws are not strict in our country.
