Every child is unique. God has created each one of us in a unique way and hence, we have our own unique purpose of life and our own unique way of contributing to the society. As education gets more and more commercialized, the sanctity of this profession seems to have taken a back seat. Where Gurus were given the highest …

Intentions create energy and energy is what drives the world around. A horrendous task done with the most positive intentions is much better than a great job done with the wrong intentions. Our intentions are often what guide us to our goals. When I talk about the education policies of our country, it raises a concern, whether the intentions of …

I have always believed that the stories and incidents from our mythology – the Vedas, Puranas and Upanishads, all have a deeper meaning – a lesson to impart. Each of these stories tries to bring out a message that gives us a better understanding into how we should live our life. I also believe, that education has a lot to …

“If I do not understand the way you teach, teach me the way in which I will understand!” There are four stakeholders to a child’s education – the child, the parents, teachers and the government and each one of them is interlinked.

Welcome to my blog

Nature always provides infinite possibilities for anything. The options, alternatives or solution provided for a problem is generally the instrument to change the world and that is the reason for this blog and for its name-‘Pursuing possibilities’.

If we know what is possible it automatically gives us a structure, in our mind, and there is definitely a probability that it may manifest or take shape. (Of course, fearless minds see beyond the structures but they are few, yet, they are the ones that change the world) Unfortunately, we do not give our children, inside our schools, even the remotest possibility of thinking beyond the structures laid down for them.  A rigid, outdated education system has made all of us apathetic to pursuing possibilities of changing it. Nature has provided us with an active imagination yet we fail to use it. Mostly there is the acceptance that the current education system is right or good or there is fear that it involves too much of an effort or it is an impossible task. Whatever our apathy or thought about this issue may be, this is your personal issue and I make no attempt to question it. This blog is my personal and minuscule attempt (and in no way claims right now to see beyond the boundaries) and only ventures to debate what is possible to change within our educational purview and provide some alternatives to changing it.

A hopeful and optimistic me thinks that anyone out there reading this and wanting to pursue possibilities to changing the education system, there can be a probable chance that you and I together may think beyond the current structures and change the world. Anything is possible……join in!
