Knowledge is the key to Success

There is a joke circulating these days on whatsapp about engineering college teachers and students

An announcement was made in a plane full of engineering faculty

“You will feel proud to hear that this plane is created by your students.”

After listening to the announcement all the teachers got scared and get down from the plane except the Principal of the college.

Teachers to the Principal – “You have that much confidence in your students.”

Principal – “I am confident about my students abilities, this plane will not start. So don’t worry nothing will happen.”

This is how our education system is working. Lecturership/ Teachership is not a dream job. Sometimes, I saw people who didn’t get any job will become a teacher.

On this subject I want to share one incidence, my neighbour requested me to teach her daughter. She was 7 years old at that time and studying in 2nd standard. I gave her tuition for a month then I came to know, she was also taking tuition from her class teacher. I had a chat with her mother :

Me – “Why she is taking tuition from two teachers? If you don’t like the way of my teaching  please tell me, I will stop taking her tuition.”

Her Mother – “Actually, she(other teacher) is her school teacher. You are clearing her basics, but she can help her to get more numbers.”

I was shocked by her answer.

Me – Please don’t do this to her. In this way she will get puzzled and also didn’t time for the self study or playing. I don’t want to continue the tuition.

I never did this for money , I want my student to learn something. This incidence disappointed me and I have decided not to take any more tuitions. You can’t change
anyone mentality if parents himself want their child to be part of rat race nothing can be done. They don’t have time to see what children are learning, only they are concerned about marks/grades. Only memorizing the words and vomiting the same on question paper will not increase the knowledge.

I can’t force the govt. to change the education system, but parents can change their way of thinking. If they encourage their child to understand the subjects rather than just memorizing it. Today we are getting the help of internet with which nothing is impossible, on any subject you tube video is available. If teachers are not good in school you can help your child in the following way :

-> Share in depth knowledge with them regarding the subject which is required at initial stage.
-> Give them the habit of self study,
-> Built the habit of asking “why” to themselves.
-> Let them understand the things through pictorial description or can search video from internet.

I am sure this will help in some way because this strategy is working in my career and if it is not working then we have always last option to blame the education
system anyway 😉

Pran’s World Of Comics

By this post I want to rejuvenate childhood memories and also want to give tribute to Indian cartoonist Pran. Do you still remember below character from Pran’s comics collection?

Chacha Chaudhary“Chacha Chaudhary ka dimag computer se bhi tez chalta hai”. This is the perfect introduction of this character. This guy has a solution of all the problems. Even police consults with him for solving there problems. As a child, I want to be like him, simple living high thinking. Chachaji never locks his house, as nobody dares to steal anything from his place. He always accompanied with Sabu. Sabu belongs to the Jupiter, he is tall and muscular man. He helps chachaji by fighting with his enemies. This guy has a very bad temper “Sabu ko jab gussa aata hai to kahi jwalamukhi phatata hai.” He loves food made by Chachiji.

Billoo – Billoo is school going teenager, he is a bit mischievous. He has a pet dog “moti”. Other characters of this series is Jozi, Jozi’s dad colonel who don’t like Billoo. Bajrangi, his friend Monu. Billoo has long hair which covered his eyes. He is very clever which help him come out from troubled situations.

Pinki – Who can forget Pinki and her squirrel kutkut? She is five year old. First time I have seen a squirrel as a pet. She unknowingly gives trouble to her neighbor Jhapatji, he called her “Musibat”. Other characters are Bhiku and Champu.

Raman – Raman represents common middle class man. Even few magazines includes this cartoon column. Others characters of this comic series are (his friends) MogaSingh, Khalifa, wife Kamali, Bald Boss. Raman biggest problem is his Boss whom he always tried to impress but failed everytime.

Shrimatiji – Main character of this comic series is Sheela. This character is very popular because it is included in Magazine Sarita. Sheela is a middle class housewife.

Please do tell me who is your favourite one 🙂

Women Who Inspired me

All the ladies reading this post, wishing you Happy Women’s Day. This is the only day when others realize there is something like womanhood exists, on others day
nobody cares. But some of us continue with the struggles and live life on our conditions. Society not only gives respect to such women but also their life become
inspiration for others. I want to share list of women who inspires me to become a good human being, give courage to stick my goal.

1. My Mother – My mother will be always top on this list. I have already shared my views in post Happy Mother’s Day !!!!
2. Kiran Bedi – I remember one interview of her that I have watched in my childhood. Most of the things I forget about that interview except one line “I have not wasted a single moment of my student life.” She shared some incidences like while going for tennis matches she used to do her studies during train journey etc.I think she is leading a meaningful life which inspires me a lot.

3. Mary Kom – I admire this lady for not only pursuing her dream but not to left it after marriage. It is not easy to career like boxing in our country and it becomes more harder to comeback after marriage with all the responsibilities. She inspires me for my second innings 🙂

4. Neerja Bhanot (AC) – It really great that Indian director and producer has started movies based on biopic. First time I heard about Neerja when the movie based on her started making. After watching this movie I was speechless. Yes.. its real.. I was convincing myself. She was the unusual combination of beauty, brain and courage. She is the inspiration for all Indians.

5.Smriti Irani – From a waitress to HRD minister, not an easy task. A person who rises from the ground knows the value of life and things that controls life which is visible on her face and speech.


6. Vidya Balan –  I heard in her interview that before getting success, producers from south don’t take her on film as they believe that she was a “Panoti”(Jinx) because of this she was thrown out from 25 films then she moved to Bollywood and keep following her dream and finally got success.
