How to read Yug People?
The Yug People series has been carefully designed for littles ones to experience these stories over a few stages:
1st Phase: In the illustration based reading phase, children understand the content through the art.
2nd Phase: The next phase is the read aloud phase in which parents and children spend quality time while reading the pages aloud. This stage helps children develop their grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation.
3rd Phase: Then comes the self read phase. Children are able to recognize words and read sentences on their own. In this stage, they hone their reading skills, develop phonetic understanding and can now memorize text.

What makes sportspeople extraordinary?
There are many people who crumble under pressure, while sportsmen and women are energised by it. Sportspeople are self motivated, disciplined and are adept in controlling their minds. They have a driven competitive spirit, strongly believe in themselves and can focus to work towards a goal.
Sports also teaches one how to work well in a team, to be a good leader and to trust others. Most importantly, sports teaches you that you can’t win always. Losing is a part of the process, and that you should learn from your mistakes and move forward.
These are excellent and important qualities to possess even in everyday life. Learn from the sportspeople around you and strive to be the best version of you!
