Digital Culture must also have a human touch!!!

We are in the digital world!!... All around us are digitized..(The television which was left analog till now has also been asked to be digitized :P :D :D) People have become slaves to the technology which was created by us.I remember a dialogue from 3 Idiots which goes this way, Professor asks "What is a machine(or technology)?" and the student replies, "Anything that reduces human effort is called a machine." But considering the way in which our lives are going now, I fear the day when 'human' is totally lost from that statement.

Teachers sculpt kiddos into pros!!!

This blog post will remain close to my heart forever. Its about TEACHERS. Teachers are the ones who work beyond their capacity to give their best for the students. They are one of the most selfless creatures on earth who derive happiness from the achievements of their students. Although they are paid for what they do, inculcating knowledge without involvement will not prove useful. Hence, most teachers love their job and that's what produces smart students. From my childhood, I've been blessed to have some of the best teachers. They've inspired me, motivated me, guided me and even taught me on how to lead a healthy life. Though, I'm doing my UG now I still remember the teachers I had during my KG!! :P. Not all teachers I remember but there are a few whom I call as 'impact teachers' who will never fade from my memory.The first teacher in the stack is Mrs.Parvathy in Saraswathi Vidyalaya where I did my KG.Having trust in my memory, I guess she taught me Engli
