Stop Stereotyping People

Stop Stereotyping People

Hello everyone!

Wish you all a very Happy New Year. Yes, it's a little bit late. As I've shared some info of work, that I was working for an Odia e-magazine named "Nabapallaba" which was released in this new year. After that, we have planned for the audio magazine. So, we start recording the articles and some also helped as volunteers. That's why, to write the 1st blog in 2018, I took 16 days. Anyway, thanks to you all for your love and support and these things definitely improve my writing style and my literature skills. 

Today, when I was scrolling my Facebook Timeline, a video was featured there. That video was shared by BuddyBits. A girl named Megha Jajoo was telling some real-life stories about "MARD KO BHI DARD HOTA HAI". Yes, that video was amazing, and quickly I saved that video to my Saved List on Facebook. Yes, I need to share that video with you, because that video has some facts which we should learn in our life and should understand for a better future.

She explained the story of a10 years little boy named Rohan who lost his first ever Football match. That guy lost the match, so he was upset. He used to cry for that reason, but his mother advised him that "LADKE NEHI ROTE". Yes, that's a little thing did by his mother to arrange some power within him at that time, but that wrong statement creates a big issue for that guy when he grew up. He couldn't explain the internal pain and problem to others. 

She also shared an experience of her when she was in Kolkatta. A guy standing behind a girl in the bus accidentally touched the girl when the driver pulled the break. So, the girl slapped the guy with anger and yes, the people who were there on the bus also think that the boy did that intentionally. But, in that case, that accident happened due to the inertia of motion, but the boy becomes the victim.

Abhish, a guy who scored a good percentage in his school but couldn't get a seat in his dream engineering college due to the more seats for the girls to promote more girls for the engineering. So, some girls with lesser mark had joined the college, but he couldn't. Yes, that rule to promote the education for girls is right, but did anybody realise the mind of that boy at that moment?

Sourav, who always topped his class and had the degree which he wanted, but couldn't get the dream job in his life. His wish was to become an international financial analyst, but he had to manage his family. He is the eldest child of his family, so he had to look after his family business. That's why he left his dream. Yes, he did for his family and this is the story of every eldest child in a family.

She also shared another story of her teacher, who recently got married. After marriage, he became the sandwich between two superpowers of his life, one is his mother and another is his wife. He has to manage his life according to the lifestyle of those two women. Every time, people say, that the women have the superpower to manage everything, but the man struggles from those superpowers. The guy is moving like a pendulum between his mother and wife to keep both happy, but he couldn't be happy himself.

There is a famous line, that "MARD KO DARD NEHI HOTA HAI", but do you ever feel that Dard or the Pain is a part of our life. If we get hurt physically or mentally, we suffered from pain. If this line was true, then no man won't died from accidents or from heart attacks. Even some man can't express the real pain which they get from their wives, because the law for women may punish them with some fake cases.

A Cup of Tea- The Power of Education

A Cup of Tea- The Power of Education

Today, I was scrolling my Facebook timeline and saw a video shared by Manisha. That video was just two and half minutes. It was shared on The Creativity India facebook page. Jitendra Rai a short film creator had made that film. The title was "A Cup Of Tea." 

But the movie is not about the love for tea or nothing about the tea. It was a duty and a special for the society. At the beginning of the video, a girl may be from some outside came near to a village by boat and was capturing a photo of a little boy and then that boy took his bag and started to run. Then that lady also follows him but couldn't catch him. She couldn't able to run towards him, but that boy intentionally used her to run after him.

She ran through a forest and crossed some people also and asked some people to catch that boy, but no-one catches him. She then entered the village area and then crossed some houses and reached a place, where she found a welcome board for her and that boy was there. The welcome message was written on a small blackboard, where some other children with some elder people were present with the study materials. They want to study, but no-one was there to teach them. That's why that little boy used her to run after him and should know about their problem.

She reached there with an anger within her and saw that boy as well as others. She looked the surroundings where she found everyone needs her as a teacher. But that little boy made her run and she had lost some energy. At that time, an old lady offered her a cup of tea putting that on a slate, which she might use to practice the letters. 

How someone could refuse to a cup of tea and that was on the behalf of a number of people in that village. That cup was not filled with tea only, that was filled with their love. The love for their teacher and the love towards education. How an educated person kicks the someone's love for the education. So, she also took that cup from the old lady and teach them.

Might be she left that place, but some would come next, to teach them and to guide them. Education is important to become something in life. It would definitely change the world someday. Yes, those people have the potential to become educated and they would become one. Because education does not only lie on the certificates, it lies within us.

National Education Day

National Education Day

Education is the primary need for all. The food, cloth and home are necessary to live in this world and Education are necessary to have a better life as well as to make a better world. Education is really necessary to overcome many problems. Education is the only thing which would become more by spreading and donating. 

A king is worshipped in his state only, but an educated person is worshipping by the whole world. Even we are reading from the authors of foreign countries. Education is a means to alleviate poverty in a developing society. Not only this, it reduces major issues like unemployment, child labour, child marriage, etc. because people become more educated & tend to do sensible things.

In India, National Education Day is observed to commemorate the birth anniversary of Maulana Abul Kalam Azad, the first education minister of the independent India, who served from 15 August 1947 until 2 February 1958.

The Ministry of Human Resource Development, India had announced on 11 September 2008 to commemorate the birthday of this great son of India by recalling his contribution to the cause of education in India. November 11 every year, from 2008 onwards, being celebrated as the National Education Day, without declaring it a holiday. 

The objective of celebrating National Education Day should be to strengthen our educational institutions and to raise the quality of education to greater heights. It should be an occasion to remember Maulana Azad's contribution in laying the foundations of the education system in an independent India as well as to evaluate our current performance in this field. So on this day, all people who are involved in the field of education should come together to seek ways to advance India's prestige in the world, as a knowledge society and to focus on how to educate our people.

This year, the National Education day has been celebrated at my high school, where I read for 3 years from 2007 to 2010. We should aware people about the need for education. An educated person must change the bad things in this world and education is the only need to make a great world.
