Happy Teacher’s Day

The great philosopher, Dr S. Radhakrishnan said that a university is what its teachers make it. In the ancient universities in India, the teachers or professors as they are called today were treated with great respect though, unlike at present, they did not get good pay and perks.

Teacher's Day in India is celebrated every year on 5th September, ever since 1962. The day commemorates the birthday of Dr Sarvepalli Radhakhrishnan, a philosopher and a teacher par excellence, and also the first Vice President of India and the second President of India. Some students approached him to celebrate his birthday and he asked them to honor their teachers instead. Dr Radhakhrishnan believed that "teachers should be the best minds in the country". Whether that is true or not in modern India is a contentious issue. Every day millions of parents hand over their children to teachers to mould and shape as they see fit. The authority and power invested in the teacher is immense. Do they measure up to that responsibility? Does the system encourage for the "best minds in the country" to enter the profession of teaching? These are difficult questions with no clear answers. But what is clear is the role of the teacher and the potential in that responsibility. And who can articulate that better than a life long teacher?

I congratulate all my teachers who shaped me from childhood on the occasion of Teacher’s Day. I respect each and every one who contributed in my life from all aspects. Happy Teacher's Day to all teachers in world and hope they will give their best result to make the society more civilized.

Happy Childrens Day

The go getter attitude and oodles of confidence dripping from their very persona is what defines the children of the new millennium. Highly informed and immaculately stylish,the kids on new block are all set to rule their surroundings. The younger lot is light years ahead with dreams set high and a vision for its nation. It is true that in terms of knowledge children of today are much more aware than what they used to be two decades ago. But that's the demand of the current times. We are in transition phase. Indian society is waking up to a new world order where it is slated to administer a greater role in world affairs. The new era belongs to those who are smart,intelligent,aware,ambitious,independent and focused as well. Children who are more aware of sensitive issues like global warming,human rights,career venues,technological advancements,political issues,than what my grand mom used to be. Evidently there is no stopping for this tech savvy,gizmo wielding gen-next.

Our children are not our children. They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself. They are our past and our future,a tribute to our ancestors and a legacy to future generations. Children are the vital resource of a nation. The collective futures of families,communities,nations and the world,lies in the hands of its children.Children are the foundation of Life itself. They are the stepping stones of creation. Their childhood is nine parts magic,one part dreams and fantasies. Children's Day celebrates "Childhood" in every corner of the world. Do not forget that children are not just little pets around the house. They are thinking,reasoning,intelligent human beings,and deserve the respect due to them. Those of us that have interacted with these little giants at our levels,and not made the mistake of under-estimating their minds,would have been delightfully surprised at their multi-hued personas. Their observation powers are outstanding,and far overtake even those of adults,at times.Children are far more articulate and expressive in their thoughts and emotions than adults.

No doubt,it is important for children to learn about the origins of Children's Day,but it is much more important to learn that the day is a reminder and recognition of the potential,responsibility and latent capabilities of our children,awaiting fulfillment of their destiny and thence of ours. It is our responsibility to cast the tender minds in our care into the tough,correct moulds,transcending the narrow confines of selfishness, discrimination, possessiveness, hatred, intolerance and grasping. We need to pay tribute to this day by pledging to mould these little adults to become self-reliant responsible,honest citizens of tomorrow. Children carry the world of tomorrow on their shoulders. Let us bear witness to this truth and join hands with them to make the world of tomorrow a beautiful one.

They move seamlessly between reality and virtual reality. The digital landscape they inhabit comprises generations not of family but of technology such as Web 2.0, 3G, PS4 and iPhone5. Their world has moved beyond their neighbourhood,school and childhood friends to encompass a 500-channel television universe,the global gaming village,the endless internet. These are the children born in the last decade and half possibly the first generation that has never known a world without hi-tech. These tweens and teens were born with dial-up internet,learnt to crawl alongside the PC and practiced writing the alphabet on the desktop. To them,a world without keypads,joysticks,digicams,headphones and LCD is unimaginable. For them,the Dark Ages are the time when television was black and white.

It is we,the users,who make the decisions on our usage of it and what we can do with it. Children as young as two are also getting introduced to books. Is exposure to books at much younger ages necessarily bad we believes that young users of technology are exactly like the generations that went before only different. Each generation has used the technologies that they are most familiar with,in order to bring about change. He believes that the era of individualism seems to be ending and the future lies in networks and how we work,live and play within networked societies. Is the twitch speed or the rate at which networked children adapt to newer technologies the number every parent and school teacher needs to know Keeping pace may be the only way to stay connected with the networked generation.

A beginning,and hopefully,a good one. Happy Children's Day

Great Indian Festival of Democracy-2009

Great festival of democracy-2009 i.e. so called general election for parliament. Every voter in Indian parliamentary participants is thinking these days that whom they will vote and why. This is the one billion dollar question for every voter. But is it their vote to count that who will be winner of that particular constituency. Yes, they want to do to keep in the view that their vote will count to choose a better candidate.

No, if they already thought that their vote is not necessary to choose a better candidate. Every Indian voter should think in a positive way that their vote will be crucial one when vote will count for a winner. We should not forget when voting comes in parliament for vote of confidence than if ruling & opponent have the same no of parliamentarian than vote of lok sabha speaker will count as a final one that government will stay or go away. Because one proverb in Hindi is famous “BUND BUND KAR KE GHARA BHARTA HAI i.e. each drop can make full bucket of water”.

Casting of our vote in India is one of the fundamental rights to use. But who is the better candidate to caste your vote in favour. Sometimes back politician brings the woman candidate in election that election will be fair and uses of languages in parliament as well as in election rally will be better. But now these days all the women candidates or even so called high profile women politician are never know they are first a woman after that they are politician. In Indian context woman are always represents their softness and uses of better languages in daily life as well as in corporate/professional world. So, in my point of view woman should always keep their softness and better use of languages. It is not a matter where they are i.e. is it politics or professional world.

Come to the previous question, which is the better candidate. This is very tough to decide. Because each & every party has some good and bad candidate as well. Every party has some bad candidate because they thought those candidate are their assets. Sometime good candidate will not win the contest, but bad candidate will certainly win. Because in India if some candidate has money and power than they will win the election. Now these days every national leader is involve to attending the election rally and things in those rally what they are doing just saying the things what another leaders are doing and why they are wrong. They don’t want to say that what they will do for better India and why the people will caste their vote in theirs favour.

Now the time has been come to ask the leader why we have to caste our vote for you people and what types of agenda you have to bring the India back as “SONE KI CHIRIYA i.e. Bird of Gold”. Starting from the youth, we have to take part in this great festival of democracy and to be a part of making India a great again in world map.

Caste your vote, for your better future and celebrate the great festival of democracy and support “ABHI NAHI TO KABHI NAHI – JAB JAGO TABHI SAVERA i.e. Now or Never – Whenever woke up, it is morning”.
