A library is a sacred place that one starts feeling like contributing to the place. This is true for those who have been blessed with a good relationship with the Library. This might be a memory from the school days or the college life, Library remains something 'very own'.
This is the season of admission at schools and a planning phase for the colleges. There is a high probability that this time also the planning and execution shall miss the mark of logic. The fault is not in their stars, it is the vicious circle that behaves like a devil’s triangle. The Policy Makers - Parents - Teachers are the ones to be hailed as heroes and as the culprits at the same time, for the success or the failure of the student.
Bookshelves are crowded with books that offer to help the readers in their time management. The claims aren’t false but the methods are vague. Motivating one to manage time and keep an eye on the watch each moment, isn’t the real thing that one should be doing to manage time.
Education has been a commodity and in recent years, we have seen it transformed into a larger business than any other service sector. Billions are going to schools and getting conditioned for the future. One wrong is to prepare a generation for the future which is unknown. Still, we love this obsession of the FUTURE.
Bhagat Singh, the legend who re-defined Patriotism and Love for the Motherland in his own terms is as much unknown as he is popular among masses. What we know of him, seems to be the tip of the iceberg. I read a few pages of his works and felt that I really need to know him more.
“Education is one of the greatest gift for mankind. Each one of us must seek this enlightenment.” When Lailah Gifty Akita says this, she opens up the world on learning to us. Life would not have been so beautiful
Listening is most rightly considered a forgotten art. With the advent of technology and learning advancements, we have set ourselves away from this required skill. There are occasions that make us realise that we have been mistaken in ignoring Listening as a part of our Communication.
We should learn to socialise and make a community of friends and well-wishers. Sense of Saftey comes from the community. One who is part of a community can look for a reprise in times of emotional draught. Even during a professional crisis, the community comes to rescue you. Important things are to develop yourself as a community person among a sensible lot of people and maintaining the same for life.
Anoop Lather's PUCP Concept of Training-Educating-Teaching can prove to be a panacea in the current scenario of bewilderment among students. They need to learn; they certainly need to mend their fences against procrastination and confusion.
In the last seven decades, India and Indians have come a long way from being humble-recently freed citizens to become nationals of a rising economic power in the world. We have seen changes that have transformed our ways of thinking as well as that of living. The New India we have received and created for the coming generations is considerably different from the one inherited by us.
Swami Chinmayananda's Twitter account shared this message highlighting the importance of intuition. The followers of spirituality do trust the presence of the supreme self-soul in the body and also adhere to the notion of ‘intuition’.
A Terrible thing is happening to teachers. Something must be done! The disturbances are reaching their highest scale and the teachers who are teaching actually, are going to be left abandoned. There is a bleak picture, nightmarish devastation awaiting. There might not be a remedy if we do not wake up to the need of this very moment, forget the day.
The New Year brings vibrations of positivity as well as togetherness. Millions, who otherwise skip connecting, send their wishes across boundaries and borders. What is so special about this thing called, NEW YEAR?
A Salute-Tribute-Thanks to Sam Berns 'The Communicator' who said: “No matter what I choose to become, I believe that I can change the world.” Happy Life is an easy thing to accomplish. We seldom give it a try and forget that it has been available around, but we ignored it.
Future is not a thing to be sold. But the Modern Business Model sells anything and everything. We have missed a very important aspect of our preparation for life and even after knowing the mistake, we are ignorant of that. The truth is that we have got obsessed with the branded product 'FUTURE' and have forgotten that it is the present- here and now- that we need to live.
Can we put the whole blame on institutions and teachers for the failures of students? Questions can certainly be posed to the ones in authority. However, the role and responsibility are reciprocal. If we give something good to the place, the reflections are certainly good. Still, this view does not liberate the administrators or teachers of their pivotal role in imparting learning.
It is wonderful to see the sun rising over us; over everything that exists tall in itself but falls short when the giant comes shining. The time of completing this post is a 'sun rising' morning when, as a teacher, I am travelling to my workplace.
Corona has connected the whole world. We know the number of countries in the world and we know where they are located. Globe seems so small today in the literal sense. People are dying of something known but still unknown. COVID has left us with one choice alone: Distancing ourselves and ensure that we do not get into open to meet people. Isn't it intriguing?
Nature is the Supreme Court! The man-made -pathies are merely the junior courts we can move to, seeking temporary solutions. The year of 2019 ended with something unending in 2020. The year which was supposed to be a year of global transformation is falling on the ground as the most 'helpless' year in the modern world.
Ask not what your country does for you; ask what you do for your country! Representing the heart of each part of the land which is free and is a sovereign nation, this quotation by Abraham Lincon is a celebration in itself.
