As I stood there in front of the class having been briefed by their teacher, that this school had 1000 children. Not one book, not one piece of teaching material.

I decided that the next hour would be my one and only chance to let them know that they’ve got a chance. A chance to succeed.

What is success? I asked them. “Money, a house, a car.” They replied.

“No” I said. These are not measures of your success.

These are measures of how much money you were able to accumulate in your time on this planet. They are not measures of success.

Success is when you as an individual know your true potential and you use it to the best of your ability for the greater good.

Like a pebble thrown into a pond, your actions of kindness will have a ripple effect that will span the globe. If you want to start your journey to a successful life. Start today, start now. Throw a pebble.

Do something that will make a difference to others and the pebble is thrown, the ripples begin.

Throw a stone each day and soon you’ll create a wave, surf that wave, and ride your way into the future.

Sure enough they all left talking about how to change the world. And they didn’t even have a book to read.

Have a great day ❤️

  2. Hello sir, I am truly inspired by the way you put across things to the children in making them understand the concepts. Things I viewed as follows.
    1. Clarity 2. Choices 3. Creativity 4. Children’s work .
    The most important thing is children must understand and bring in their own work rather we limit them with the activity sheets provided. I think your way of teaching follows in that manner.
    I won’t blame the children rather the Indian system of education where in no changes can be brought to stop following “the read, save in mind and write it down” pattern of learning. I fail to understand that despite so many elderly scholared educationists being in the panel of education they couldn’t bring in some changes in the education offerred which curbs the child’s knowledge by not giving them the freedom to think and express their thoughts on each and every topic taught. Ample opportunities and choices to be given for them to explore, experience and execute. Hoping to see changes through a highly passionate person like you. Appreciate your initiative and my hearty wishes
