“Spring being a tough act to follow, God created June.”


I was wondering...what is tough...to read ??? OR to make one read????

“For a tree to become tall it must grow tough roots among the rocks.”

Tough I guess its like the never ending story of the chicken and the egg :)
I really admire the teacher...the guru...the professor...Guide....and what not...the more we respect ..the more names we have...but ever thought how tough it would be???

"He who opens a school door, closes a prison" ~ Victor Hugo



I always think and that is what I plan...that I should end my retirement age by teaching poor needy kids...give my knowledge or I must say at least teach something that I have learn through out my life. When I go away from this world I want...to give something...there is always happiness in that.

“It's important to give it all you have while you have the chance.”

But when I see ...how tough and difficult it is to teach a kid..what can on think of many kids...in school...!!! Its a nightmare...I wonder...how these teachers do it. I am sure they have to give 100 marks for there patience and calmness :) but yes...some dont and that you see on the legs or face of the kid....may be as a mark or may be as tears :)

"Good teaching is one-fourth preparation and three-fourths pure theatre" ~ Gail Godwin

I loose my patience over something like this so quickly that...I wonder ...will I be able to teach any kid? Its a sincere effort that I want to make in life to teach someone...!!!

“All human wisdom is summed up in two words - wait and hope”

I always ran away from this profession coz...I always felt...a teacher has to learn life long :) to teach others ..hehe...so whenever I had the opportunity to play a role of a teacher...for some reason ...I always stood first and got first prize too ;)
Irony of it...I guess everyone knows now :D....all I could so far figure out is...if you are trying to teach a kid...and you dont loose your patience...and still rockin....then boy...I must tell you...you are doing a great job ;)
For me...patience is virtue...I have to learn it by heart ;) and believe me ...this quote really has taught me a million $$ worth lesson...I love it...:)
Keep smiling...always...;)

“The key to everything is patience. You get the chicken by hatching the egg, not by smashing it.”

@manish: good one :) but what I feel is even an uneducated adult or old gains knowledge through his own experience...but kids...they are still the new offsprings...looking for new ventures...must get a path to lead ;)

Country roads, take me home, to the place I belong...

This time of the year, I really miss India, specially Pune. Growing up in Pune as a Malayalee (Keralite) is one thing but I grew up watching...
