What 3 things Illustrate what your life is about?

My Learning through formal, non-formal and informal education illustrate about my life, who I am !!

For the last almost TWENTY YEARS I'm learning through non formal and informal education. Through non formal learning I have been learning mostly technology. Through informal learning I have been enlarging my life experiences.
I'm regularly taking Spring Courses through Edmonton Lifelong Learners Association, Fall Courses through TELOS. Some of them are non-formal but mostly informal. There is no doubt these Courses bridges gap between the school and life. Make learning accessible in every day life and in the future.

Informal Education is driven by conversation and interacting with others. Our Coffee Group, Our Maitri Group, and my association with several seniors organizations, besides several social, cultural and political enable me to act freely in unknown situations.

My informal education  focuses on values that provide ability to create my own identity. Through my formal education I got a bachelor degree in Arts, and another bachelor degree in a Education. They enabled me to serve  in Education department as a teacher. I worked for 33 years and retired in the year June 30, 1998.

Spend Time With People You Love!!


 We, Vijaya my wife and I are Canadians. We live in Edmonton AB Canada 🇨🇦 
Edmonton is a Festival city. We enjoy the Spring and Summer, celebrating festivals.
We fly to Seattle WA in Autumn 🍁 
Our son Ajay, his wife Rani and our Granddaughter Pragathi live in Redmond WA. Our Granddaughter Pragathi is in Grade 4 this year. We love her greatly. 
Seattle is a seaport city on the west coast of the United States.  It is the seat of King County, Washington.  Seattle is the largest city in both the state of Washington and the Pacific Northwest region of North America. 
In Winter we fly to the south i.e Atlanta GA. Our two daughters Aparna and Anupama live there with their families. 
Our daughter Aparna, her husband Kamalesh, our Grandchildren Vikram and Vinod live in Alpharetta GA. Our Daughter Anupama, her husband Sreenath and our grandson Prabhat live in Cumming GA.
 We enjoy pleasant weather there. However  this area experiences a winter storm with significant snowfall about once each year, but this can be extremely irregular. 
So my wife Vijaya and I are snow birds 🐦 🐦 However Angels fly with us wherever we go guide us back safely to our home 🏡
