ext month, the city’s mostadorable Indian dogs areall set to accompany theirproud families to a dog show like no other. Hosted by theBlue Cross of India, the annualBlue Cross Well Dog Show is acelebration of everything canine.The dogs are a glorious mix of natural breeds including thoseadopted from the streets or ani-mal shelters, while others aremongrels or cross-breeds.Many participants in the pasthave included gorgeous dogs thathave survived serious illnessesand some have been rescued by their owners from accidents orabandonment. The show has al- ways been a memorable one, with unique titles and prizes thatinclude “Dog with the waggiesttail”, “Rarest colour”, “Friendliestdog” and “Best rescue”. Certifi-cates, trophies and gift baskets will be among the prizes that thedogs can win.“Our objective is to demonstrateour pride in our all-Indian dogs,”says S. Chinny Krishna, Chair-man of Blue Cross of India, whohopes that more people willchoose to adopt dogs from theirlocal animal shelters. “If you arelooking for a companion animal,do visit your nearest animal shel-ter and choose from the many that would be there. All you haveto do is be willing to show that you would make for a responsiblepet owner. There are no charges.Though, your donations will helpthe important services providedby your local animal welfaregroup going.”Dogs will not be asked to performtricks, produce proof of pedigreeparentage or compete on the ba-sis of breed. All they have to do isshow up and be themselves. Andof course, it’s hardly a contest when every dog goes back homefeeling like a real winner!

ucked inside DevarajaNagar in Sholinganalluris the sprawling, calmand inviting facility runby Raghavan Jawahar and Sri-devi Raghavan. Amelio Child Care Pvt. Ltd.is one of the youngest “early learning centres” to haveopened house in this part of the city, helping working par-ents maintain a work-life bal-ance. The place looks like acastle from the outside, andthe inside is sure to appeal to you. More so because they provide customised day caresolutions to companies.“We are a near-site learning centre, making us unique,”says Raghavan. He explainshow its proximity to IT com-panies makes it easy for par-ents working on the stretch toleave their toddlers at Amelioand yet keep a close tab onthem – be it dropping during breaks or picking them up af-ter completing office work.
Project to business plan
 Amelio is the outcome of aproject and business plancompetition that Sridevi worked on during her gradua-tion years at Harvard BusinessSchool. “I did a project on theidea and viability of an onsiteday care centre and anothergroup project on staff interac-tion in day care centres. I usedthe findings to arrive at a busi-ness plan, where I was sup-ported by another classmateand my husband Raghavan,”explains Sridevi. While the 5,000 sq ft centrefunctions like a near-site facil-ity, its upcoming learning centres promise to adhere tothe onsite model. Amelio willsoon be opening its secondcentre inside Mahindra WorldSchool in Mahindra City.
