To all the fellows who believe that only the people with a “doctorate” or “teachers” degree ( whatever that is called in your country ) are worth of teaching something , i have a question for you below.
Why would you even think like that? Unless of course you can’t . Think. that is.
our teachers may teach us a great deal . but that is not exclusive for them .
Remember how these teachers told us the story of Robert the Bruce ? How his victory is still traced back to a spider ? A teeny tiny eight legged creature who didn’t even know A-B-C ? ( Even though i am one arachnophobic , every time i do find a spider , somewhere deep at the back of my mind , my hands mentally join in a “NAMASTE _/_” to it !)
Coming back , lets just concentrate our focus to the homo sapiens as of now.
A person may be going around , doing his routine life errands, not knowing that you and i are learning our life lessons from him. i am sure the lab boy (15 years old) at my office didn’t know it. He was telling me about his native place while finding the chemicals that needed to be weighed.
Lets name him P. P belonged to villages of Jharkhand , a place more than 1000 km away from Delhi , where he was working. He was still in school , but instead was working here. He would go back in November and give his exams in January though. So why did you come here? Money. For the family. Don’t have a lot of land you see…
At the end he passed it off as a joke “ Isi bahane dilli ghum liya ” ( At least this way i was able to see Delhi ). But i couldn’t . I didn’t see the joke . Here i was sitting in the comfort of my home , forget working for family , i wouldn’t even throw garbage until i am scolded. Would i be able to go so far from home if necessity arises? Am i too pampered?
Well , thanks to P , if not anything more i started taking my “luxuries” seriously. No more taking things for granted. No more ordering the house maid around. And yes, throwing the garbage out . Daily .( Although my mom has become really suspicious of it 😛 ) .
Guys, keep your eyes and ears open. You don’t know what or who may teach you THAT ONE LIFE CHANGING LESSON . Your parents ,your friends, your pet, your neighbor, your watchman. Anyone.Anytime .
Wishing you luck ,
P.S – As i write this , a notification about my classmates changed profile pic crops up. At other times , i would have literally died from the after effects of hysterically laughing while banging my head on the wall. But today i am doing a _/_ ( namaste ) 😛 .
I really wish i could share her picture with you , ‘cos unlike P she taught me two things –
- Self Love and Self confidence are not related to the number of likes. 🙂
- However guilty or angry you feel with yourself , NEVER do this with you. Never post a photo like that 😛 😛 😉
