Status Update #1

I think I have mentioned before that I’m taking a course of “Diploma in Elementary Education”. So, last Wednesday (6th April) we were asked to “perform” a demo teaching class. Each was given 2 subjects, I got Mathematics and Bengali (first language/mother tongue). I’ll not I did great, but it was good according to the teachers. In my opinion, it is impossible to mimic the environment of a class 1st grader classroom with a bunch of graduates, High School passed students, but still, it was just a performance and as far as I know, we’ll be sent to actual elementary schools for practice teaching.

I’ve always avoided this discussion. Look the thing is, I am gonna conceal as much as possible but will try my best to share most of it.

War of whatnot

“Will a mouse ever construct a mousetrap?” This war between Ukraine and Russia is creating a lot of headlines lately. Some say it will escalate into another “great war”, World War III. How poetic! I wonder who came up with this. In the medieval ages, leaders, kings used to fight alongside soldiers, but as human civilization evolved, the ‘elite’ people at the top power hierarchy became more and more distant from people at the bottom.

Language, Struggle and Disappointment

In the history of mankind, people have fought for freedom, equality, rights, and whatnot. But a Struggle for language! I don’t think you’ll find another example of this type of struggle. Look, I’m not gonna explain the whole history, or the importance of today’s date, there are thousands if not millions of resources about the history of this struggle, if you’re interested, you can read them yourself. At first, I thought I would write this in Bengali, my mother tongue, but I went with English anyway, ‘cause I’m making a point, you’ll understand if you read till the end.
