Do you dare to?..

Hmm..a Chinese proverb says "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime".  I agree.

It's nearing the end of Ramadhan with Syawal just around the corner and if it were to be on a train you could already hear the faint sound of the wheels aligned against the track quickly paving its way towards us.  And being the last day of school today, it is expected that we seek forgiveness for our past wrongdoings from each other. Be it among colleagues or between students and teachers and also peers.  

But, I believe, that to seek forgiveness, you have to be purely sincere and not coerced into it or the act is purposely done because you are required to, as instructed by your teachers.  Today, I snubbed the morning assembly with the simple reason that asking the students to seek forgiveness and expecting them to do it there and then is not teaching them how to fish but rather feeding them for the day!  Now, do you dare to do that?

This is nothing but my plain ramblings for the day.

Derest Ummi,

It all depends on individual perspective. Opinions are subjective, while we try to be honest some may view it as being insolent or egoistical..well..never can please the world kan? I remain to be me. Hope the students can fish eventually...

Thanks for stopping by.
