This year’s theme ‘Parenting in Pandemic Times’ is highly relevant given the stresses and challenges being faced by parents in Covid times. Our partnership with Firstpost as a content partner since the last few years is a testament to the fact that our digital outreach has played a significant role in the success of the show. We’re happy to continue this association with them for years to come.”

The fact that there’s no right way to bring up a child, makes it equal part beautiful and challenging.
