Teaching a child

Our granddaughter had been given assignment for vacations to draw lessons from some incidents in the life of elders. She asked me for some and I narrated 2. I am giving below what this young one of 7 & ½ years typed on my PC :

An Incident in my nana’s life

My nana was in the third standard those days there were wooden slates called takhti one day in the recess my nana forgot his takhti when he reached the school then he remembered that he has forgotten his takhti he said I will make a story when he reached the class the teacher asked where is your takhti my nana told there were some bad boys they took my takhti the teacher asked some other boys who used to go with my nana they said no he did not bring his takhti when the teacher came to the class he asked where is your takhti my nana again made a story the bad boys took my takhti no you are telling a lie have you forgotten your takhti yes I have forgotten my takhti so the teacher made my nana stand out of the class the whole period

Moral : Never tell lie.

An Incident in my nana’s life

When my nana was in sixth standard and when my nana was having holidays and my nana went to his nana and nani house and my nana kept playing the whole day and he could not finish his homework when he went back he tried to finish his homework but he could not finish when he went to school the teacher said you have not finished the homework the teacher gave him two days to complete his homework and my nana had to sit late in the night and do his homework

Moral : One should do work first and play later.

PS : Out of my 17 friends who visit me regularly and I do visit some of them but for others I have NO LINK. I would like to visit them too. May I request you to kindly let me know your link so I can have the pleasure of visiting you too. Thanks

This is SO cute. Two morals being instilled in the young lady by her nana at the most right age.

I owe this trait to my Dadi who used to tell me stories with some lessons when I was 4 years or so. Take care


Thanks for visit. Can I be of any help to de-stress you? If you wish to share what is causing it, you may write to me. Take care


I will sure ask her to type some of her thoughts and post here. Thanks for encouraging comments. Take care


I feel it is the duty of us, elders, to instil good values in children at the right age.
Take care


Thanks for leaving your link. I will surely visit you soon. Grandparents not only love little ones more but try to mould their character too. Take care

I dun lie to others, but sometimes I lie to myself..just to get by :)

**One should do work first and play later.

hi Jack
good one :) love the wisdom u alws impart ... tell me how important is pysical relation to a it more important than it is to a woman ?
are women insensitive to tat aspect..

Jack said...


If I can be of help to someone because of my experience why should I not share it? You have asked a very pertinent question. I will try to reply here. A man is more open and demanding while woman has similar needs but does not show it openly or feels shy to demand it even from husband. A man's physical reactions on arousal are plainly visible while in case of woman it is not so prominant. Both men & women need outlet for their urges and it should not be surpressed. Men will seek outlet while women will wait for it to happen. I am not advising women to be promiscous but they should be open about their needs or urges with their partners. Pre-marriage physical relations will depend upon each individual's thinking. All I say is that one should follow own conscience.

Take care

very nice incidents and very cutely written!!

:P however, being the bad girl i was, i always tried to escape. very rarely was i caught, but it was kind of worth it. I know what is right and what is wrong, but i also know where to draw the line. I also know which teacher falls for which excuse :P

sigh!! im gonna miss school!

ps- hope you dont mind, but i wrote this comment and meant it to be taken lightly

Ketan said...

Those were interesting observations you made. Am I reading too much if I feel that you were quite amused by the first conclusion that your granddaughter had drawn? It sounds quite ironical that way.

You can click on my name above and, I'd love to have your comments on my blog--'Neglected Serendipity'. But I'd like to point out that my recent posts have been quite frivolous and won't be representative enough of my take on life. I'd suggest your going through the labels in my blog's sidebar.
