The time is here and now. If we all can think in harmony and for decency in the life of every citizen of the world, life can become sustainable. Survival can become a second priority then. Being together in this mission, especially for everyone in education is important.
They insist that he must be in front of their eyes. Some of them ensure that Kevin is looking towards them and is well settled at the table, though far away from them. A few have started insisting to bring him out of the bag otherwise he will get suffocated. This is the Minion - the one whom I introduced as Kevin and now the students say, he is more pleasant to talk to. Let me share with you how this started and where it is headed!
It has been 07 years since the EklavyaParv blog came as the place I started writing for. It has been a full-heart employment with the full-time jobs I have been doing. The pleasure that I get, the power that I conceive and the response that I get – all make it an EklavyaParv in a true sense.
I am a teacher to school children now. Shifting from HigherEd to training teachers across the country and then landing in the K-12 classrooms has not changed much in me and for me. The intent is the same: engage and empower. To deliver the message of authenticity and communication, I have interacted with every possible thing - be it students, resources, technology, books and even the chapter authors.
The Corona batches of students will become cheaters in their lives if they do not realise that the COVID-sponsored ease is deceptive. The competitive world that they are going to enter will be brutal. The jobs are not going to come as gifts and cakes. The struggle that awaits them is not an alien thing.

Hey! MAKE SOME NOISE - has been a call for some rebellion in the face of a boring and stereotyped routine. It is not about being on the dance floor or on the stage for a while and then making an exit for the next friendly call. The 'noise' here is the intervention that we all need to possess in our everyday routine. It actually makes us look alive. Let's see how!
Being wise is synonymous with being a teacher. You manage minds, not the students. They look up to you not as an ideal but as any other fellow learner. This is what I have felt. Do not idolise yourself because you are a teacher. be normal - live normal but teach special. However, it is more important to know - HOW NOT TO TEACH!
What you know is of no use if you cannot make good use of it. Our previous knowledge gives us a unique competence. It is the power to imagine. Do not think that one cannot imagine if he does not know about a particular thing beforehand. We mean, if you know about one thing then you can 'imagine' more. That is what children do.
Corona Undermines the Examination System and I am quite happy. I am happy that the kids are just getting promoted with ease. I am certainly hopeful that the pandemic gets over soon and we are back to a safe 'normal'. But the NEXT NORMAL will not be as we have lived it during the corona age.
