  11. Pradeep K. Ivon. By education, i am an engineer but involved in industrial projects marketing but as a hobbyist i have wide interests ranging from trekking, music to even cookery. As a child, i was active in the Bal Bhavan at Delhi whose model has not been repeated today in other parts of the city and so the children today do not get exposure to many learning activities and hobbies. As a parent i wish to inculcate in my children (to start with) an interest in the Universe and so wish to learn skills of a good sky watcher. Once i am familiar with the sky and the skills of making a telescope, i will try to spread this awareness in other children in my family and later on the neighborhood etc. I do not claim i can bring a large change in society towards astronomy but my learning is just a beginning and i will be happy even if i can develop this hobby in 10 children in my locality. From the learned members i would certainly gather the skills and ability to either make or source a good telescope and what/when and how to watch the heavenly bodies in the sky.
