SEAMO is Here..


Have you heard about SEAMO,The Southeast Asian Mathematical Olympiad? No, then this post is definitely going to give you much-needed insight here.

SEAMO, is not merely an Olympiad rather it is aimed at bringing the most creative and youngest mind of the world in a friendly competition at the highest level.

Now as it’s an Olympiad, it has the purpose of finding the minds which are extra ordinary and can think out of the box. This is first time that SEAMO is going to conduct test in India and the decided date is 6 of August. Students from class 5 to class 12 are eligible for this great Olympiad. The exam will provide students an opportunity to identify and discover their mathematical talents through creative challenges. Now, one other thing that I found interesting here was that the question paper will be prepared at the same time for India as for other countries, so the level of difficulty of both exams will be same. Thus this Olympiad will set a clear benchmark for Indian students about their performance as compared to international students.

SEAMO, (SouthEast Asian Mathematical Olympiad) originated from Singapore, is conceptualized and managed by noted mathematician and experts of Terry Chew Institute of Mathematical Olympiad (TCIMO).

Last year, more than 40,000 students from across 12 Asian countries like Myanmar, Laos, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Malaysia, Singapore, Jakarta, Philippines, Brunei, Indonesia, Timor-Leste appeared in SEAMO. Now SEAMO will be held for the first time in India across 55 cities and in more than 100 test centers. If I talk about the benefits of Olympiad, I guess the very first point will be, “Gaining out of the box thinking”. Kids get additional knowledge and competitive spirit. It gives a chance to students to sharpen their skills by tackling a number of problems at a level they are not likely to encounter in their classrooms. 

SEAMO encourages analytical thinking, as it presents a platform which assesses the logical thinking and problem-solving approach of a student by compelling them to think deeply.

SEAMO is a single stage test. It encourages all categories of students to participate; ie good, average, math’s lovers and even those who are not fond of math’s Olympiad. The test has 3 sections; Easy, Moderate & Difficult. So, even an average student can attempt few questions based on their thinking ability and can get a sense of achievement with participating in a great Olympiad. The test will be of Objective Type. Every question will carry 4 answer options wherein one option will be correct. There is absolutely no negative marking in the pattern. Students would get two ranks: National and International, and Performance Analysis report is given to each student to analyze his/her strengths and weaknesses.

Final Verdict


As a math’s lover, I am really looking forward to this Olympiad that is going be organized for the first time in our country. I am not saying that if your kid fulfills the criteria of participation then he/she must take part and this should be the ONLY aim. However, I am more inclined towards the participation of kids. You should encourage your kids for first take part and if they like it then next time they can join it with due preparation. For more details, please visit SEAMO website.

पत्नियों के लिए भी एक व्रत का प्रस्ताव..

अरे याद है ना.. हर साल की तरह वो प्यार का त्यौहार फिर से आ गया.. अच्छा तो आप कंफ्यूज हो गई कि ये वैलेंटाइन डे तो कब का जा चुका अब किस प्यार के त्यौहार कि बात करने लगी मैं.. बताती हूँ बताती हूँ.. अपनी हिन्दू सभ्यता में भी एक प्यार का त्यौहार होता है "करवा चौथ.."अहा, क्या उत्सव है प्रेम का. पहले प्रेम मिश्रित सेवा फिर सेवा के बदले प्रेम मिश्रित उपहार. वाह..

बाजार पट गए है डिज़ाइनर चमकदार छलनी से लेकर गोटे लगी थालियों से और होने भी चाहिए. आखिर इस कदर महान संस्कृति जिसमें पति को देवता मान कर, उनके लिए दिन भर भूखे प्यासे रहकर पत्नियां व्रत करती हैं, उनकी उम्र बढ़ाने जैसा ईश्वरीय कार्य करती हैं, उस दैवीय व्रत का इतना उत्सव तो होना ही चाहिए. और याद रहे चरणस्पर्श करना एकदम जरूरी है व्रत के नियमो के हिसाब से नहीं तो पति की उम्र से छेड़ छाड़ हो सकती है. समझ नहीं आता इतना ज्ञान आया कहा से हमारे पूर्वजो में जिससे ये पता चला कि अगर पत्नी दिन भर भूखे प्यासे रहकर चाँद की पूजा करे तो पति की उम्र साल दर साल बढ़ती जाती है? वैसे धन्य है भारतीय महिलाये. पति चाहे शराबी, जुवारी कबाबी कैसा भी हो, पतियों…

#MoreIndianThanYouThink Being an Indian Mother is Success for me

This world is a beautiful place. It’s really amazing how different countries with their unique cultures exist in harmony here. I know, there are some exceptions; however, I think that is almost negligible when I see the culmination of values and beliefs in our universe. Everyone is exclusive and different, yet all of us make this planet livable. As a mature person who got the chance to understand the ethos of a few other continents, I can proudly say that our country holds a different space in this world, a culture that is known for its strong family system and core values. Feeling proud about our mother land is no unique. But being an Indian, I have gained so much at my professional front.


Yes, I am a working mother of a 3-year-old boy. I have close to 9 years of experience in software industry and I am looking forward to work for more and more years. Being a mother and being a professional person bring two different kinds of challenges in life. And when you work for a demanding clien…

#MothersDay - A blog by Divya, ANAYA's Mother

A mother becomes a mother the day she gets to know about the little embryo inside her womb.
It all started one fine day when I did my pregnancy test and it resulted positive. Life changed from the very moment. I was excited but a bit nervous too. I and my husband were working in two different cities that time. So the excited supermom in me felt extra responsible to take care of the baby. I started spending my days managing home, office, long travel, shopping, exercise, reading and any and every thing which could be added to the list. My baby kept me motivated and never let me feel alone. At times when I felt low she kicked me as if she was saying ‘Don’t worry mom. You rock! :) However, by end of sixth month I felt exhausted and I decided to move to my mother’s place for delivery and give some time to my husband to settle down with his work life.



After seven hectic years of work life I was enjoying a peaceful time. Days were spent in all sorts of preparations to welcome the child. But…
