Three Habits of Good Student

All of us love to live long and remain young. One of the best ways to remain always young is to remain a student all through one’s life. The attitude of a student is always to learn something new and something innovative. The three essential habits for the same are:

  1. Reading: Read something new every day, sometimes a book, a novel, an article etc.
  2. Write: the second factor is to write something every day, some reflections about the day, or a comment on an incident that took place that day, something on the political scenario etc.
  3. By heart: another important factor in the life of a student is to keep the memory active and fresh, one of the best methods is to learn something by heart every day, maybe a sentence or a phone number etc.

Daily practice of these three without fail would form one a great student, now and always in life.




Authority and Integrity 

A story is told of a Guru, who took time to advise the child of a devotee to stop eating sweets, enquiring why, he said ‘when you brought your child to me I had the habit of eating lots of sweets, then  how can I tell him not to eat.’

It is only in the integrity of words and action one can practise the authority. As often children say to the parents, ‘let us follow your examples rather than your words and advises.’



How will you define a leader?

In the light of things that happened today, especially during the mansoon matches @KJC (deatils will come soon) I feel like defining a leader as:

A person who has a vision for the people who are under his care and who is able to transform this vision into a mission through various activities. 

May be better framed in negation, leader is a person who is not willing to act to make happy the majority/minority of the members of the group though knowing their demands are wrong and not worth of fighting for. 

Pray that may our political, social and religious leaders may understand this great truth…

Punch: Justification can’t transform evil into good…


Let me ask you…

Do You Pray? and What do you pray for?
Prayer is often understood as a presentation of list of requirements and things required to God.

So the question, When do pray is also quite relevant?

Often we pray when we are in trouble and when we have issues which we feel can’t be managed by us alone…

Said all these… I feel

Prayer is just any of above said rather…

Prayer is a request made to God for a state of mind to accept His will in our life…whatever it may be…

It made a difference in my life…try it out

What makes News?

​When there are children in so many parts of the world who have nothing to eat, that is not news, it seems just normal. When some homeless people freeze to death or starve on the street doesn’t make news. These things  become normal.

On the contrary, when the stock market drops ten points in some cities, it constitutes a tragedy. It becomes a news. 

Someone who dies is not news, but lowering income by ten points is a tragedy. (Pope Francis, The Church of Mercy)

Where are we heading too?

Book Review:  കാറ്റിനോടൊപ്പം

മിച്ചൽ, മാർഗരറ്റ്. കാറ്റിനോടൊപ്പം. ഡി സി ബുക്സ്. ISBN. 978- 81-264-5 116-6

Book’s Summary: അമേരിക്കൻ ആഭ്യന്തര യുദ്ധത്തിന്റെ  പശ്ചാത്തലത്തിൽ എഴുതപ്പെട്ട സൃഷ്ടി. ഇതൊരു ചരിത്ര നേ വലല്ല, മറിച്ച് സ്കാർലറ്റ്    ഒ ഹാര എന്ന പെൺകുട്ടിയുടെ വൈകാരിക ജീവിത കഥയാണ്.

My Views: Margaret Mitchell in the famous book ‘Gone with the Wind’ explores the struggles that Scarlett had to go through to keep her family alive during the American Civil War. The higher value of life is stresses all through the story. The author has succeeded in keeping the value of life rather than anything in situations such as war internal struggles in the country. Books communicates to the readers about life and  its daily struggles.


Its more than a month that I am in K JC. I am enjoying my life here.

Being here I feel the most often quoted word in the house is ‘tradition and tradition’. Whenever I hear this word the image that comes to my mind is of  Tevye in Fiddler on the Roof, who attempts to maintain his Jewish religious and cultural traditions

However, in the beginning of the movie he makes this statement ‘Traditions, I will tell you how all that got started…., but I don’t know.’

Hopefully its communicating enough
