In the last seven decades, India and Indians have come a long way from being humble-recently freed citizens to become nationals of a rising economic power in the world. We have seen changes that have transformed our ways of thinking as well as that of living. The New India we have received and created for the coming generations is considerably different from the one inherited by us.
I beg to say that I am a student at your school and I shall be completing my XII in the coming year. After completing my school education, I shall be joining Higher Education and will pursue a professional degree. I aim at making a good career that will make me lead a good life as an individual.
Karma is one thing that is the pivotal point of our life. We might get engaged in any type of trivial pursuit, material race or self-appeasement by fabricating a comfort zone around us. But, when it comes to self-assessment and realisation of the purpose of our life, all these temporary shelters vanish with a blow of wind.
2020 is not just the coming of a new year in our lives. It is not just the shuffling of a page or removal of the old calendar from the wall. 2020 is the conclusion of the most happening decade of the 21st century.
Every day is not a Teachers’ Day. The remaining days are of the students. A Teacher, who teaches, does not demand days for his own stature. He is the ground, the base on which he himself keeps the clay moving to transform into a ‘carrier’ of Learning.
It used to be a fortunate thing to have good children who shall keep your words and dreams; who bring pride to the family name and have a say in the world that you feel happy about. Parents used to work hard to inculcate goodness among their children. Generations used to depend on this divine bliss of having Sensible and Disciplined Children.
A Terrible thing is happening to teachers. Something must be done! The disturbances are reaching their highest scale and the teachers who are teaching actually, are going to be left abandoned. There is a bleak picture, nightmarish devastation awaiting. There might not be a remedy if we do not wake up to the need of this very moment, forget the day.
God is not just a particle in our life. It is a product of belief and reason for a belief at the same time. We humans are very particular about our beliefs in the Supreme and look up to them for remedies. The question here is not of being a theist or atheist.
Future is not a thing to be sold. But the Modern Business Model sells anything and everything. We have missed a very important aspect of our preparation for life and even after knowing the mistake, we are ignorant of that. The truth is that we have got obsessed with the branded product 'FUTURE' and have forgotten that it is the present- here and now- that we need to live.
