Environment and you

Today is world Environment Day.  We are so busy with our mundane life that we fail to see the flutter of the leaves, the blooming of flowers or the bend of the branches laden with fruits.  Some of us are surrounded by skyscrapers so we are left with the view of just the sunrise and…

Quest for Happiness

In today’s scenario, all of us are searching for happiness but in vain.  Those who are wise have not needed to search far because they know that it lies within them.  However, most of us measure our happiness based on another’s success or achievement.  Which is the main reason for us running in circles and…

I care…

The times when we had physical classes seems a long time ago now.  There are so many advantages of having physical classes.  The best thing is of having eye contact.  This itself speaks volumes and can convey a thousand emotions.  It is an all-powerful tool for a teacher.  Without this, one feels lost and handicapped. …

Idiosyncrasies

Every individual in this world has his or her idiosyncrasy that can unnerve the onlooker. For example, my relative finds it hard to sleep without the blanket that covers her from head to toe, whatever the season.  Another friend must have his bed tea as soon as he wakes up or else he is in…

You will find innumerable people, ordinary, simple people who have done something extraordinary and yet have no one to applaud and appreciate. Take for example an old lady of seventy in a crazy fit ran out of her simple abode in a village and in that…
