Rote learning still plagues our system, students study only to score marks in exams, and sometimes to crack exams like IIT JEE, AIIMS or GATE. The colonial masters introduced education systems in India to create clerks and civil servants, and we have not deviated much from that pattern till today. During earlier days, students were […]

March 29, 2016

We have IIM and IITs they make finest engineers and entrepreneurs in the world. They study hard, work hard but not all of them could do out of box. In my life, I have seen engineers working 9 to 5, doing monotonous job, come home, eat and sleep.   Deepsingh Rathod, an illiterate person from […]

જયારે લોકો બીફ બેન, જે.એન.યુ. યુનિવર્સીટી કે પછી “ભારત માતા કી જય ” જેવા કોઈ નેતાના વિવાદિત ભાષણ ઉપર ચર્ચા કરતા હોય છે ત્યારે અમે બન્નેમિત્રો અમારું ઉદાહરણ આપીએ. મારું નામ રઝાક અને મારો જીગરજાન  મિત્ર રમેશ. અમે દરેક તહેવાર ભેગા મળી ને જ ઉજવીએ છીએ. આજે 10 વર્ષોની દોસ્તીઅકબંધ છે  જેને કોઈ નેતા નું […]

March 22, 2016

For me, mentoring has helped a lot – I learn from everybody, and I am always learning. Some of the things that have really helped me is that I always seek help. I know I am not perfect so I am shameless about asking for help. And I don’t take myself seriously. We are going […]

March 19, 2016

હું ગઈ કાલે માર્કેટમાં શાકભાજી લેવા ગઈ. મેં શાક લઇ ને શાકવાળા ભાઈ પાસે પ્લાસ્ટીકની થેલી માંગી, ત્યાં કોઈએ મારા ખભા ટપલી મારી. મેં પાછુ ફરી ને જોયું તો એક બેન મારા મમ્મીની ઉમર ના હસતા ઉભા હતા. કંઈ પણ બોલ્યા વિના એમણે મારા હાથમાં કપડાની બનાવેલી બહુજ સુંદર થેલી મૂકી દીધી અને હસી ને […]

#189, My Favourite Earphones

March 17, 2016

Two weeks back I was listening music on my phone on loudspeaker. I was so engrossed in a song that I hit a car’s headlight with my Rekdi (pullcart). The owner of the car obviously came out angry. Immediately I apologized for my mistake and asked how much that headlight cost to fix! He said […]

#188, A Piece of Cake

March 15, 2016

We were roaming in a crowded street to click some photos and it drew my attention when someone pulled my shirt from behind. It was a poor looking boy holding a small child in his hands. He must be around 12 years of age. I was sure why he pulled my shirt and what he […]

March 10, 2016

A special post for WORLD KIDNEY DAY.   Dr Sanjay Pandya is a very famous name in Rajkot as a kidney specialist. But, that is really very small introduction. Let’s elaborate.

March 4, 2016

I hate carrying water bottles in my hand. I just don’t like it. One of my friends goes to an English medium school of Rajkot and tells me the stories about the school. I too share my school stories with him. But, I would like to share one with you today.   Whenever you see […]

March 2, 2016

It is an interesting but very challenging job being a zoo curator because you are dealing with living beings including humans. I love to come to work every day and interacting with animals we have in our zoo. What do we have to do? Well, we have many exotic and common animals and birds to […]
