Tell us about a time when you managed to extract yourself from a sticky situation .
This happened to me when I was in third standard,one of my friends didn’t do her homework I just went into the classroom to unload my books, she got hold of me and asked me if I would lend her my book so she could copy my work.
I didn’t really want to do that, I couldn’t think of an excuse, I was hoping the bell would ring and I’d be able to make that as an excuse not to share my work with her, to my delight the bell did ring, I told her I couldn’t give her my book because we were required to go out and join the rest of the school for prayer. I thought I dodged the bullet but no, when I left she tore the pages off my book. The story didn’t end the way I wanted.
Short poems by Rabindranath Tagore
‘The Wasp and the Honeybee’
For this tiny honeycomb,
you are boasting so much!
My dear brother, come hither,
show me a better one before I leave.
Announced the mango tree to the creeping tree,one day,
We were all equal in this green forest;
man has brought with him his own taste__
now the distinction has begun, equality comes to an end.
‘Necessity of Relationship’
Beggar’s bundle remarked hey money bag,
how can you forget we are related?
Money bag uttered, you would have done the same
if the money was in your bundle and not in mine.
