Many Marathi parents these days think that their children are not interested in
reading stuffs that will help them improve their knowledge,
preferably in Marathi, they don't read at all.
Many of them think that TV, Cricket, Mobile phones, Whatsapp are only mediums on
which they spend thier time. Do you think the same? But Why is this the case?
We do think, near about 11 crore Marathi people speak Marathi so well which sounds sweet and impressive, then why is the problem with kids around? One of the reason behind is, we ourselfs think that Marathi is not that treated globally, and lessen its importance.
English is a global language, and should be known very well to communicate, we should be pursuasive in English, but linguists say that if you don't have good command over your mother tongue then youn won't lay an impact in English till that extent. And so you must create a habit of reading in your mother tongue right from your childhood.
School Students, should get News, Science and Technology, Arts, Experiments, Puzzles, etc to read and should turn out to be good thinkers, and so we have come up with famous Wayam Magazine. We basically distribute our magazine in schools and libraries. Similarly, Readers, Teachers and Parent contribute to reading our Magazine.
Wayam Theme line is - Think from reads and Grow in deeds!

There is a need for a magazine like 'Wayam' today. Technology is changing our way of life. New technology should be a complementary reading for the new environment to be well utilized. The idea of Wayam is capable of doing this.

Today, there are different attractions for children. It is a matter of necessity for the growth of the child to be born in such a period. And 'Wayam' exactly meets the need. By reading 'Wayam', the overall development of the child is happening.
Marathi books are rarely read by children. But Marathi reading enhances knowledge of your language. Therefore, while studying in English school, should not neglect the Marathi reading. 'Wayam' is a good medium to make children read. There is so much variety in the 'Wayam' magazine that no one else will ever live in it.
