Learn to give

Dawn 12

I am still struggling to write daily. Even though intentions seem strong but after continuing for four days to five I have seen missing one.

School is doing well and in these last four months that I have happened to stay at one place, after many years I learnt about a lot about my own school. Setting up a studio and taking classes, understanding there world and spending crucial time with them on their important days has been enriching.

Today I and mother went to the printers and designed a report card. She had been wanting to change the way a report card looks. It has to be playful for smaller children, so we went. I could find some really nice themes sitting with the designer. I will share it soon.

I ask myself a question by the end of everyday. What did I learn today? And many a times I fail to get an answer. There are so many things that one does, little by little. And yet happens to repeat most things out of habit due to one tendency through out the day. We only become our tendencies. One knows all most every thing that needs to get changed. Still one takes a leverage many a times saying one last time. That one last time takes months and sometimes years to become that final time. Nothing exponential happens as such and nothing great achievements come every day. One pushes little and comes back a little. That is how the pendulum of life keeps working. Rather than learning something for yourselves. I have found giving, on the days that are going low and out of order, others some happiness. Just a little bit more laugh, a compliment, a joke or probably a tip to someone who might seem to be struggling as well when you cross their path in lives, can become one opportunity to earn some quiet happiness. Giving makes one humble. That many a times feels good. Remember what you will give, you will receive. And that does not only limit to your actions. It is as much your intention that matters.

Hello, My name is Narayan. I am a teacher and an Ethnographer. After college i opted for teaching in far away villages of the Himalayas and later in Central rural India. And gradually as I wandered along the local streams and rivers, unending fields i learnt not only about myself but India and what is it to be Indian, living with various families throughout India. And to tell you, there is nothing more than a smile and an effort to make their children lives better that makes them happy. I have been independently working as a writer, photographer and filmmaker. For past many years I have been travelling the Indian subcontinent teaching and extensively documenting rural and her communities. Learning and understanding culture, communication and various ways of human mind and body. I am a student of History and did my masters in it. And later studied Sanskrit. When you realise the alignment of your spirit with the world around you, winds take you to places in the Himalayas, where you learn the ancient Yogic way of nerve healing, I can't really know myself but since then all the above mentioned things altogether has helped me generously to enter homes for shelter and food in the night. I come back to Delhi. Here mother and I run a small school for children.
