The Tender Affection

Hello friends it’s quite sometimes since I have published anything as you may know that I’m trying to adjust myself to my new role as a teacher. But if you are thinking that I’m teaching these little children, then I must tell you that it’s not my cup of tea! I’m teaching middle school. These tender flowers are pre nursery kids of my school. As you see, one little girl is dearly missing her parents in school and the other two , who happen to be class monitors are consoling her in their own tender and caring way.

It’s true that pictures can tell a thousand story. The beautiful and guileless interaction of these tiny tots can warm up even the frozen hearts too. The genuine bonding between the innocent kids is so reassuring that humanity, love and affection is well and thriving among the young ones.

For the  past two years some unfortunate kids have started their education from the confines of their homes, probably in the lap of their parents. They have missed this natural way of assimilating themselves to the school system. It’s indeed a problem of adjustment as they suddenly find themselves in upper classes without having any prior knowledge of school habbits.

One curious thing, I have noticed that the children in class 3 are behaving as if they are still in class one, the class they were at the start of the pandemic, as if they all are stuck in time warp. It’s really bewildering for them and teachers too to adapt to the changed status. But children are fast to mould themselves to the changed circumstances. All it requires is a lot of patience and perseverance on the part of teachers to deal with them in caring way.

What’s really encouraging is their intention to learn new things. They are asking questions like, what is  extinction, who are endangered species, overuse of plastics and its impact on environment and so on. It’s really heartening to see them so aware to save the environment from further degradation, which we adults, although well awared of the deteriorating situation,  still dithering to take concrete action to stem the tide.

Friends,  I wish you all health, happiness and peace in your lives. Shall try to be consistent in connecting with you all, because you all are,  in fact, an important part of my life. I value your comments and likes a lot. Do stay connected.
Adieu for now.

      1. WordPress decides about it mam. I comment a lot, so probably that’s one reason. It happens with me mostly. WP thinks that if I’m commenting a lot then I’m a spammer 😅
        You can check spam, you will find other genuine comments.


  2. Such a lovely bond. Children really have the most genuine and simple ways of reassuring one another. Best wishes for your current teaching role. In my experience, I have learned more than I have been able to teach haha. You’ll hopefully enjoy this journey! 🙂

  3. Awwww…….the joy of teaching is rarely surpassed by any other job. The secret is that interacting with these young minds isn’t really a job. Correction work, yes, planning events, yes, coaching for zonals yes yes yes but interaction and facilitating discussions with these ingenious minds? That’s pure joy!

    So happy for you, Mousumi!
