I am Fortunate to be born!
As a Human,
on this Planet earth.
But then heinous acts of notorious some,
Bring a skepticism,
to think if it was of real worth?
Or if I was not born on this planet earth?

The Precious global ‘Space’ is indeed infinite,
As it accommodates galaxies of Suns, and the stars,
Millions of Light years apart, in skies we sight -
some Planets, even bigger than the Sun - hot and bright,
Through the telescopes we sight the all Nine planets very well,
Even the Comets, or the Milky Way that makes the Sky swell.

The Sun that is the mark of growth and most Energies.
in its solar system, where all the nine planets are squeezed,
weather it is Pluto , or the yet unknown Planet Nine
The solar system is indeed very potent, yet sublime
That Sun causes at Earth the 4 seasons, and Day and Night!

The Sun has many moons , like the namesake son of Earth,
And is religiously circled by other 8 planets in the constellation
The farthest ones are deprived of its heat- to be the cold Giants
That Neptune and Uranus, are ICE cold, to venture none would dare,
On the contrary the two giants Saturn and Jupiter are hot Gaseous
Through these four some no one can surpass

Believably, someone lives in another one of other four terrestrial planets,
Namely, the Mars, Our Earth, the Venus and the Mercury
The most habitable is our mother Earth that none can deny.
While the presence of water promises a liveable life at Mars,
To make a quittance from this beautiful planet- Earth is no cause,
But yes, If and when Earth is made insecure for the likes of me,
By some horrible in-humane act of this Planet’s rowdies.

A poem can do wonders!.Teaching Page

A worthy Poem is a ‘playground’, full of ideas,
Like small - big balls, bullyed in a conceptual space,
With all 26 alphabets, rearranged, at each intent;
acronym for a “Place, to Open - Emotions and Moments”,

There are two potent questions in my grey mind.

(i) Though in my 40 years of teaching no dumb (lacking the power of speech Ref: dictionary.reference.com/browse/dumb) student applied for admission to engineering. If it were true, should I have had denied him/her admission?). I hope not.. on the contrary the student shall get preference- because of handicap quota.

(ii) What would have happened if I had not wasted my precious years learning German, when I was not to be exposed to advanced literature ( technical or other) right one at right time

The former question has a rider attached. because the dumb has a guised meaning too as it may… [simplify or reduce the intellectual content of something so as to make it accessible to a larger number of people.] In that case the situation is twinned to negative side.

My focus in this discussion is on the 1st problem. Some help is solicited?

Let me recall a real life example:
We had called a professional engineer (from industry) to conduct oral examination over minor projects developed by students

Confusion.Pages

… read conversation between Mr. Watt and William Knott*…

“Who’s calling?” was the answer to the telephone.

“Watt.”

“What is your name, please?”

“Watt’s my name.”

“That’s what I asked you. What’s your name?”
*Confusion confuses and creates confusion to further the confusion**
