So you want to know who started this website and put all this content together? Well, that's me you are looking at! Hi! My name is Aarti Chandnani. I am the author, founder and creator of this website. I was born and raised in Mumbai India and am currently living in the USA with my husband and 2 kids.
Why HindiGym? I created this website in January 2008 to help other parents, who are trying to teach their kids Hindi; after realizing the lack of really good materials. I not only wanted to make learning Hindi fun for kids, but rather also for parents and teachers to find such materials to teach Hindi. Sure there are tons of websites and resources out there that provide Hindi materails, but none of them focus on actually being able to write or read Hindi. Most of them are either story books or some animated CD/DVDs with games, songs, etc.
Hence my goal is to create various materails and worksheets that are at par with the other "ABC" or "english books" that our kids are used to. I decided to choose graphics which are not very ethnic, but rather appealing to young kids. All activites, worksheets are geared towards little kids, so they can have fun while they learn!
Thanks for visting! I hope you find HindiGym to be useful. I constantly update the website with new materials as I work with my kids and come across new ideas. Be sure to subscribe for regular updates. Take care and hope you have fun teaching your kids! As my dad says, "Lage Raho"! :-)
