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.

I saw her frantically reciting a mantra. Her hands were intensely locking each other in prayer. Tears were there; which she was trying to hide from the curious eyes of onlookers. I still do not know her name. I never asked her. But the worry lines on her face made me re-think my To Dos for a Healthy Life.

Vacations enhance ‘Bonding’ between family members. They are forced to see each other and live with each other while on a vacation. If done well vacations have a tremendous recharging value too. But I have hardly seen people taking 100% vacations. Don’t kill your vacations after you have gone through all the trouble to find time to go on one – by being all over the place!
