861. Life is a wonderful teacher

I learnt the basics of Tamil from Jothi Mam (My Kindergarten Tamil teacher) and the grammar behind it from N. Thassiah Sir.

My grand mother taught me Indian History and English. 

My mother taught me to sing.

My father was my mathematics and Physics teacher.

Ashok annan taught me to play the guitar; I hated it when I started to play the guitar as a 7 year old boy; but now it is really useful for me.

I have lost special people in my life because of their wrong doings and also because of my foolish behavior.

I have seen people die.

My maternal grandmother was the first person who encouraged me to write. She was extremely humorous too.

I have never ever got a job through a job site; it has always been through a friend or an acquaintance or my blog.

I have cheated people and I have been cheated too and I have learnt a lesson or two from those experiences too.

I still don't know why I did Bachelors in Engineering. I have no clue about the subjects in Engineering. But I learnt to survive in the big bad world, thanks to those 4 years.

My daughter, wife and my sister have taught me many a lesson too.

We can learn from anyone around us. Children, teens, young adults, married couples, elders, teachers, beggars, crooks and even from murderers. Some times the greatest lessons are learnt from failures in life and relationships. 

Everyone around us have something to teach us in this phenomenon called LIFE.

Be it a happy moment, a sad reality or a betrayal; every single thing gives us valuable life lessons.

The only thing that we constantly do is Learn.

I am still learning.

What about you?

  1. As a christian we keep on learning the good and unlearning the bad, until the day we die. In this learning and unlearning capacity, our humility is demonstrated.

    Proverbs 18:12 ESV
    Before destruction a man's heart is haughty, but humility comes before honor.

    1 Peter 3:8 ESV
    Finally, all of you, have unity of mind, sympathy, brotherly love, a tender heart, and a humble mind.
