The MM collaboration began around 30 years ago (long before they were matriarchs!) and has resulted in several initiatives: educational projects; about 25 publications including school and college textbooks, story books, teachers’ manuals, etc.; exhibitions, films, training programs….
Other interesting shenanigans include editing the Ahmedabad edition of the Children’s Supplement of Indian Express for three years.
The MMs are:
Meena Raghunathan: Scolder-in-chief and mother-in-law to the world at large. Also, an environmental educator for two decades and CSR professional for 15 years. CSR, education, pre-school education, skilling and livelihoods are areas of professional interest. Writing and editing are personal passions.
Mamata Pandya: Scolder of the scolder-in-chief, and partner in drafting and crafting words! An educator, writer, editor and avid crossword cracker. Lover, collector and translator of children’s books. In a continual explore, discover, think and share mode.
The blog is a leap of faith for both the Matriarchs, as technology and social media are not their areas of comfort.
But hope to get by with a little help from our friends!
