Maatraa began with Alakta and her friend Lata Rao. And a strong friendship with a common goal to do something for the youth and women, turned the dream into a reality with Maatraa.
While working with my children during their formative school years, I realised that they mastered the art of learning. They took their struggles in their stride, and put in their very best.
My kids grew up feeling the satisfaction of diligent input while not worrying about the outcome on paper. The methodology turned out to be a success. To be able to put this in the Maatraa methodology was immensely gratifying.
At Maatraa, we believe that language is a muscle. The more one practices and uses it, the stronger it will get. Maatraa has been specially designed for the bilingual Indian audience with content specially created by Indian experts.
The course makes it very easy to recognise common mistakes and correct them. Short and focussed videos in the learning process at Maatraa have been greatly appreciated by students, teachers and HR departments. The opportunity for rigorous practice of the learning on the platform itself, ensures better and improved language skills.

Many women have lost their lives to this darkness. It's high time we raise awareness, and make maternal mental health screening a part of the routine check ups.
Trigger Warning: This deals with severe postpartum depression, and may be triggering for survivors.
Motherhood is considered a beautiful blessing. Being able to create a new life is indeed beautiful and divine. We have seen in movies, advertisements, stories, everywhere… where motherhood is glorified and a mother is considered an epitome of tolerance and sacrifice.
But no one talks about the downside of it. No one talks about the emotional changes a woman experiences while giving birth and after it.
Calling a vaginal birth a 'normal' or 'natural' birth was probably appropriate years ago when Caesarian births were rare, in an emergency.
When I recently read a post on Facebook written by a woman who had a vaginal birth casually refer to her delivery as a natural one, it rankled.
For too long, we have internalized calling vaginal deliveries ‘normal’ or ‘natural’ deliveries as if any other way of childbirth is abnormal. What about only a vaginal birth is natural? Conversely, what about a Caesarian Section is not normal?
When we check on the health of the mother and baby post delivery, why do we enquire intrusively, what kind of delivery they had? “Was it a ‘normal’ delivery?” we ask.
