Anxiety

Exams are fast approaching and as a teacher, I have been busy revising lessons and helping students with their difficulties that don’t seem to end.  This time everything has been different – the teaching-learning process.  It has been difficult for me as a teacher to understand the technicalities that I need to know to help…

Good Humour

The one who lives life with good humour as his/her companion is by far better equipped in facing life’s challenges than a person without it.  Often accepting your life’s turbulence and setting your sail in accordance to the direction of the wind is better than complaining about it. Kamla, a poor woman lives in a…

FEAR

Life can become an ordeal if you live with fear. Break the shackles of fear if you want to live and breathe freely.  People have different kinds of fears – fear of heights, fear of insects, fear of failure….so many,  that writing them down will fill my page.  Sometimes I am just fearful and anxious…

GIVE A HELPING HAND

A young girl was returning home with her father after a check up when on the way her father felt dizzy.  She tried to hold his hand to support him as he was a tall man.  The house was close by but that day the distance from the doctor’s place to their home seemed far. …

HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS….

It is the safest place to be in especially when the world outside is so demanding and tumultuous now, what with Covid 19 and it’s effects.  I love my home. Just to be encompassed within the four walls (that does not denote imprisonment or shackles but rather the freedom) to be who you are and what…

SUCCESS

Who does not want sucess?  But who wants to put an effort to climb the ladder of success? Those who strive hard are successful. Does success mean fame and money ?  Yes, in a way that is universally accepted to be termed as success.  However, if you have achieved the goal that you have set…

ANGER

The image I conjure up when saying the word is someone red in the face, puffing and fuming and I can also see the smouldering heat coming out of the person !  The image seems funny but the person who is going through it will never find it funny.  On the contrary, you may get…

DREAM

I have known of so many success stories that began with a dream. Without following a dream it is difficult to reach anywhere. You will just be wandering. A dream gives you a goal to reach for. Sometimes it is a dream that can help you focus on your future and if the dream is…

SORRY

As a teacher you often hear the words “Sorry Ma’am” and I have learnt to acknowledge it with a pinch of salt. Little children make mistakes and we tend to forgive and forget. But when mistakes are committed by adults , we flare up. Inadvertent mistakes are forgivable but mistakes done repeatedly can get on…

APPRECIATION

To appreciate and be appreciated are two wings for the flight of motivation. You need each other to reach a goal.

SMILE

A smile can be the beginning of an unexpected bonding…..

HOBBIES

Pursue your dream with the help of your hobby and be assured of an inner peace – happiness will prevail….
