Realisation of a different Kind ...
Truth and Dare!
Though my professors at a reputed engineering college down south always rated me highly but they never rewarded me in ample proportion for the simple reason that I was not the text book types .
I was not a student who would take down the derivations quietly without understanding each step and more importantly the often declared “ silliest “ step . I was not a student who would come to class least bothered about what is happening in the class. This often troubled me a lot .The Professors felt challenged and my classmates felt irritated at my “ whys “ , “why nots “ and “what if “ ..
A really bad habit ….. asking questions in the class ..The Education system almost gave me “NFTE “ (Not fit for technical education..or whatever they meant by them ).
Today, The tables have turned I am a teacher . I have started feeling disappointed at students who are not able to “ ask questions”. I have started feeling slightly disturbed at a system which does not allow any points for inquisitiveness , fearlessness , & creativity .
I am equally puzzled as my teachers were :P
