  The Hindi Day Fiesta!! The department of Hindi “Tarang” celebrated “Hindi Diwas 2023” or “Hindi Day 2023” on 14th September 2023, to commemorate the inclusion of Hindi as an official language of India in the Constitution in 1949. The theme for this year was “Bharath ke Smarak” or “Monuments of India” celebrating the rich Indian cultural heritage evident in the very many historical monuments of India. The day was slated to have five competitions- Poster Making, Just a Minute talk, Jumbled Words, Solo Singing and Solo Dancing. The competitions of Just a Minute talk and Jumbled Words were exclusive for Hindi students, current and former, while the others were open to all students. The celebrations started with a small talk on how Hindi, as language, has been the thread of unity that ties people from different parts of India. Hindi is the third most spoken language in the world, just behind English and Mandarin. The beauty of the language is its simplicity, such that non-native Hindi spe

"IV Diaries”

Image
  When we first heard that there was going to be an IV trip for us final year students, we could barely contain the excitement. Finally! A trip, well deserved. Planning the trip was as thrilling as the actual trip itself! Our journey began by night travel to Bengaluru from the Podanur Junction Railway Station. We reached Bengaluru in the wee hours and immediately proceeded to Coorg. Students happily danced to electrifying beats at 4:00 in the morning, something one rarely finds during normal college days.   We reached Kushalnagar (situated on the foothills of Coorg) by noon, freshened up and immediately proceeded to see the sights. Our first stop was to The Namdroling Monastery, or more commonly knows as The Golden Temple, just in time for the prayers. We witnessed more than a hundred young monks chanting prayers in unison. The throat-singing took all of us to a different world and was one of a kind experience. Next we drove up to Coorg and visited the famed Raja ’ s seat. The vi

On becoming an Ubuntu Teacher !

Image
  Sounds like a yummy delicacy, right???? Nothing to do with it… I happened to read this article on ‘Become an Ubuntu teacher’ today (Sep 4, 2023)* in The Hindu in the Education Plus column that I thoroughly enjoyed. I happened to share it with one of my friends** and she asked me to write a blog on my version of the same. And I was like why not. Here I am… In this era of high competition, setting high standards, benchmarks, social pressure etc. this Ubuntism made complete sense to me. Ubuntu is an African word meaning “humanity to others”. The golden rule of Ubuntu is interdependence i.e., “One’s existence is intertwined with others, shaping who I am”. No one person exists or acts in isolation; everyone is connected with others forming a web of relationships. This peaceful coexistence in spite of the magnitude of diversities is the beauty of human life. This principle of Ubuntuism is applicable anywhere and everywhere. As teachers, when we internalize and institutionalize this concept

To be...or not to be !!!

         As a lover of Petrichor, on a parched day...I await this day as a Teacher to be wished (or rather )at least recognised for the Job as a 'Teacher'. When I scrolled on my heavy -set day finding some me-time for myself (not for relaxing)but to write this blog...which will eventually get posted by me ! The story begins thus , as a Teacher of 16 years, I look back and reminisce on myself as a teacher. The point is that I realized the graveness only after say 5 years into my profession,  to land my Boeing 747 on this run-way...many a time I had also planned a run-away !! So here I am after 16 years, trying to strike a balance between...where my inner guru commands and demands things from me each day. The Hamlet in my nunnery asking to be...or not to be ?! It is a challenging Question..Just like the job itself , where to be a teacher, you literally make a lot of sacrifices both unseen & unheard of. All my fraternity would agree on this point, where you just need more powe
