Tell us about something you would attempt if you were guaranteed not to fail( and tell us why you haven’t tried it yet).
I seriously would attempt to write a book of all my experiences I encountered in my life. I haven’t written it yet, I cannot try it without the guaranty I will not fail.
Some of my well-wishers want me to write about my experience as a teacher, there are some interesting anecdotes I’d be able to share.
It might bring out a smile for some who probably experienced it as well.
The schools I have attended , the things I liked and others I did not, it’s the way life is you do not like everything that happens to you.
My interaction with children, who I thought are the sweetest and most innocent human beings on the planet. I’m willing to bet if they were at the helm of our beloved planet, they would make it the best place on earth.
When they love they are sincere, they do not know how to pretend, some are influenced by adults who unknowingly say or do things just to impress the adults they come into contact with.
When I was six there were two sisters who were our neighbors their religion was different from mine . To impress their older cousin they pointed out to her in a very awkward way this is what one of them said in Bengali: “Ora na mucholman”( they are Muslims). her way of saying showed she does not like us. How do I know because the proper word in Bengali is, Musalman, not Mucholman, this was her way to scoff at us. Neither she nor I understood at that age why she did that.
Sometimes certain events are deep-rooted in our mind this was one of them. We adults do great harm to children by teaching them to discriminate.
I need reassurance that I will not fail, this is the only reason I have not tried to write a book!
