It is time to leave on a holiday and ensure the house is secure before you leave. You are in a hurry or worried about the last minute checks before leaving the house. You are running late or juggling luggage with house keys. You are simply too excited about your holiday or preoccupied with unfinished work. The reasons may be plenty but they all result in silly mistakes that may turn grave for home safety if you get unlucky. Let’s make a note of a few essentials you need to fix right before you leave on a holiday!

Leaving house keys under the doormat.

This may be an old habit as you always made sure it was easy for the maid to access them while you were away at work. Break this habit when on holiday as the doormat or pot is the easiest place to be traced by a burglar.

Safety tip – Instead, hand them over to a trusted neighbour. Leaving the damaged door lock unattended. The lock has been failing to clasp a few times, it needs to be repeatedly shut tight or it’s unlocking by itself. Yet you have continued to prolong repair and now have run short of time so you just postpone it for a later date. This provides any burglar an effortless entry into your house. Safety tip – Ensure the locks for the safety door and main door are always in optimum conditions, and replaced, if necessary.

Using fake security equipment.

Security cameras are expensive and the apartment has a plenty of alert security guards, therefore, you choose to save money and install a fake camera. Remember, burglars do their homework well and are the first to spot the difference.

Safety tip – Invest in a good quality security camera which can be regularly monitored on your smartphone.

Updating travel plans on social media.

‘Vietnam calling’ or ‘In the mountains in 15 days’ is your new status update for the week as the holiday is about to begin. Remember, social media is accessed by plenty from your social circuit and beyond. Your status message may encourage someone’s ulterior motives.

Safety tip – Do not post travel itineraries on Facebook and other social and public forums.

Keeping all lights switched off.

When you are travelling, as a practice, all lights are switched off, though, remember, for a burglar it is indicative of a chance to strike. Darkness means lack of any activity at home.

Safety tip – Invest in digitally timed lights that can be programmed to switch on and off at particular intervals.

Forgetting to stop your mail or newspapers.

While you are on a holiday, your doorstep is gathering piles of news. One look at your doorstep and a burglar can identify that the house has no occupants. This can encourage him to strike.

Safety tip – Stop your mail or newspapers before you leave on holiday.

Palava’s Newest School Set To Be The Top Of Its Class

March 28, 2016
Shri Ram Universal School Palava

Mumbai Metropolitan Region will soon see an iconic name in the A-list academic circles come to its fold. From the promoters that set up India’s most premier and sought-after educational institute, The Shri Ram School, comes The Shri Ram Universal School, Palava. This school would be set up under the aegis of Shri Educare Limited, the education consultancy that has tied-up with the Lodha Group.

Known as the as the Holy grail of schooling in Delhi, The Shri Ram School was founded in 1988, and has since then progressively emerged as the top choice for parents of Delhi and Gurgaon. The Shri Ram Schools in Delhi and Gurgaon have consistently been ranked amongst the top three day schools in India for the last five years according to the EducationWorld India School Ranking. Getting a child admitted to The Shri Ram School is widely acknowledged as tougher than getting admittance to some of the world’s top-notch universities. Some of the other premier and leading educational institutions set up by the group are the Shri Ram College of Commerce and Lady Shri Ram College.

The Shri Ram School is a much desired choice for every parent-to-be for several reasons. Delhi celebrates admissions to this school with lavish brunches, Mumbai takes pride while announcing their child’s departure to the capital, and Bengaluru considers it as a fierce competitor to Bishops Cotton. India revers this institution and silently envies its alumni. Mumbai and its surroundings will be able to experience its offerings at Palava as in a year or two, it will become home to The Shri Ram Universal School.

And if you wonder what makes The Shri Ram School’s alumni wear their badge with unabashed pride, simply look at the school’s fundamentals. Since its opening in 1988, the school has always adapted a ‘child centric’ approach. Limited students in a classroom, sprawling playgrounds and experiential learning are common to this school. In New Delhi, students study in a 6 acre campus laden with environmental labs and engage in several outdoor projects, real time experiments and other engaging activities. Learning through experience is a routine at this institution.

Though what makes it unique from its counterparts is the flexibility in its systems and the contribution of its teachers. The Shri Ram School encourages parents to be intricately involved in the development of their children. It ensures every need of the child is attentively addressed by the teacher and not simply made to follow instructions.

The Shri Ram Universal School will be set up in Lakeshore Greens neighbourhood of Palava and is expected to cater to students from Nursery to Class XII. It will be one of the over 20 schools planned in Palava. Palava today has two operational ICSE schools “Lodha World School and Pawar Public School. With this one-of-its-kind alliance, the residents of Lakeshore Greens in Palava will get an enviable chance to enrol their children with India’s top school brand, and that too, located just a short walk away.
