If only...

Feelings which cannot be expressed,
Ideas which cannot be executed,

Stories which are un-heard,
Words which are un-spoken,

Beauty which is not witnessed,
Truth which is not heeded,

Love which is confined,
Hatred which is detested,

Freedom which is not given,
Elation which is not felt,

Bliss which is missing,
Gloom which is a part of existence!

If only I could change these things,
Then, I wouldn’t be dreaming about changing these things!

Look at our Educational System!

The picture says it all!
Since ages, as far as ‘I’ suppose, there is no progress in our Educational system. Children continue carrying loads of books on their back. They do not have any enthusiasm in learning things. Teachers keep on saying the theory, rather than , teaching the concepts in-practical. How long will it go? How long the children have to carry this burden?

“Taare Zameen Par” is the best example of how a typical child feels about the education. I’m not going to blame every teacher or every school/college for adopting this BAD system. But, I’m questioning that, why should we go and participate in such rat races? Why the children are not getting up early in the morning to learn something new?

It is good when we have a rivalry between two people about their knowledge. But, it is seriously a BIG mistake if there is a competition between their grades or marks! In most of the schools, the knowledge is measured with a scale called “grades”. Every single child has their own specific talent in some field!

Once, Einstein said, Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid. How true it is! Not only IITians or MBBS students have the ability to feed their family. I pity that Education is merely used to do job and earn money for family. Education should be enjoyed in every stage of our life.

There is no age limit to ‘learn’ or ‘teach’ something. Rabindranath Tagore started painting in 1924 at the prime age of 63. Isn’t it amazing, how great people enjoyed the essence of learning something?

Recently, I read an article in our local newspaper ‘EENADU’, in which they stated that .. they did some changes in Intermediate 1st year and 2nd year syllabus. They reduced 50-100 pages in their textbooks.
What do they mean by that? Do they think, we learn the subjects with ease if they reduce some topics from text book? That’s insane! Hmm…

I’m not going to give ideas or judge about how the Education system should develop. May be, because I don’t have the right to do so. I just raise my voice that learning among children must be a regular habit and they should enjoy each and every stage of their life with education.

I still wish to see such generation!

If I have the chance to change something, then .. that would definitely be about our “Educational System” !

6 Word Saturday!

Whole week, playing with my camera!

Oh yeaah! A post after a very long time! ^_^ Successfully completed all my exams. :D
So, here I am .. Playing with my camera the whole week! I always love to click photographs which please my eyes! For some info, My camera is of BenQ's company. It's a digital camera. Though, photographing is not my passion, it gives me immense pleasure! One of my favorite activity! I present you some photos here, which I clicked this week :) Hope you enjoy! 

Many times..I thought to photograph a candle with a dark background! And, here it is with a quote on it:  "Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that." - Martin Luther King. Jr.
It's Light Painting! Love: We feel it, Before we say it!

A droplet! I chose the camera settings with Max. shutter speed! I love the beauty of droplet! ^_^

On a clear CD, few water droplets are arranged on it .. and a light source was  focused on the droplets. Camera settings  are:- Manual Mode, with 15 sec's shutter speed and 4.3F! It is also part of Light Painting!
I love to hear comments from you! Happy weekend readers! ^_^
