Almost half the kids that I teach at AIIMS as a volunteer didn’t get their assignment files, so instead of punishing them, I decided to teach them to share. I asked them to sit and share their assignment with someone who hadn’t got theirs.
Over the weeks, it has been rewarding to see the changes in these kids. They are passing on their awareness and learning about kindness and about conserving natural resources to their families too. Kindness is contagious, indeed.
And they are so full of beautiful surprises. In just in a few classes, I have received so much love and affection from them. I had forgotten about Teachers Day, but they insisted that I come that day. I was travelling, and so I couldnt take a class that day. But when I went today, they gave me beautiful handmade cards, all personalised! I was so touched.
Unconditional love and a non-judgmental approach always pays.
