All it takes is just a look around us to know that nature has given us abundant clues on living a life of purpose. [Possibly] we have not spared the time to do so. We are caught up in web of “fast moving life” concept and are always in a hurry.

We [should learn from] the little ants [who] are persistent and they just wont give up:

Ants are courageous,
They have the confidence to challenge an elephant…
these are open and come out of hiding with confidence.

Ants are quite focussed
They have a sense of direction…
both vectorially,

ON PECOSA<

Cleanliness is next to Godliness. If India is to be pursued to become spic and clean, the pre-requisite is pursing it as a rigour, a religion, and/or a realisation! It should need a cultural change - a seiketsu, for real transformation to environmental beautification.

[Shitsuke - Commitment (Actually this is a typical teaching and building of an attitude towards any undertaking to inspire pride and adherence to standards established for the other components)]

This paper shows the significance and progress of the small endeavour. It simultaneously argues that this drive is only a lower level expectation. The real momentum shall accrue to have started when the transformation graduates to a level of spiritual cleaning. Howsoever small it may be, but the Change has started. May be from modest support of a few, we believe swach Bharat shall become a movement - a drive - of driving away the filth from multidomains.

Teaching communication.Teaching Page

The formula in a nutshell:

The advice for educators:

Be lenient and practical. Let the students think for themselves. Make a list of topics to give them options. Don’t use Emerson [C N Rao] and Bacon [Munshi Prem Chand] to elucidate. Give your own writing examples and let yourself be criticized. Understand their interest and let them write about it. If they happen to be Korean [a place too distant], let them write about Park Ji Sung [their native heros] and prepare to correct a two-page essay. Well, that’s better than correcting four paragraphs made up of five sentences each.

Thareja adds- Well!

“Communication is difficult. Structurally, it gets founded over words, organised around thoughts. Words are difficult to come through, successfully, amid the thought process.
see how the blogger comments over the poem, relating her(or him)self with the challenge of matching relative speeds?”

See how the poet Angela Manalang Gloria writes:

I never meant the words I said,
So trouble not your honest head
And never mean the words I write,
But come and kiss me now goodnight.

The words I said break with the thunder
Of billows surging into spray:
Unfathomed depths withhold the wonder
Of all the words I never say.

It was beautiful. What I admire most about AMG is the way she weaves reality and the female psyche into her verses. I felt so connected to the poem I can almost claim the voice, of course, if not for the poetess’ superior play of words and thought. But I read it again and realized that the first stanza wasn’t for me. Yes, it wasn’t for me. I mean what I say. The second, however, describes me. What I don’t say I mean more.

Sometimes it’s ironic that no matter how many words I utter, I still run out of ways to express myself. I speak, and somehow it gets forgotten. I write for the sake of memory and they get lost. I thought I knew words. Now I doubt if I ever knew them. No one needs to understand. I don’t understand it, either.

A Virtuous need for communication Indeed
