‘Tum kya sach mein itney ……. ho?

— Do you not regularly feel tempted to look at a few of your friend’s FB statuses & write below (the above line) as a comment? But you cannot say it; as it is your friend & it is social media. One wrong comment and he will UNLIKE all your pics that he had LIKED. And the itch keeps on growing (with every blatant display of low IQ & EQ of your friend) & you still cannot scratch that fungal patch.

My work gets me a chance to meet many genres of people. ‘We just DO NOT want to be HAPPY. We want to be MOVING’– is my strangest observation about my fellow voyagers. Even if you are an IIT / IIM working in a corporate or an IAS or a top doctor or a student in a college or even a housewife — I have found my observation to be true with majority junta.  ‘We just DO NOT want to be HAPPY. We want to be MOVING.

In this open letter to my teachers, I am trying to ask a few questions I couldn’t ask as a young student. The idea is to try and move everyone on to a better path. Some would say I am being idealistic. Why not? Our teachers are framing the society, one kid at a time. We deserve to ask them questions!

Dear Teacher,

You have always had an issue with me- ‘Why I do not respect you fully’. That’s because me and my friends do not respect teachers but respect ‘Good Teachers’ only. The hardest job that my friends & I face today is to behave in a well mannered way without seeing ‘Good manners’ anywhere around us. Be it college or be it at home.

to see them as ‘Package Deals’… People are like mobile phones. Some have a great camera but poor battery life; some are great at music but are average at processing speeds, some look sleek but are v expensive. Ditto with people!
