What keeps you going?

That evening small silvery drizzles of rain drops drifted downwards shining bright under the setting sun. The backdrop of the orange skies and the pack of birds flying home were too good to be missed. The sun and the clouds appeared and disappeared looking like a pair of shenanigans amusing their scattered viewers. Like never… // Read More

I can write about him although I don’t have his permission. He would be more than glad to read this piece, wherever he is now.

Why am I here and not somewhere else?

In the Business of Transforming Lives

I was once questioned by a teenage student of mine, ‘Why are you so concerned about me when no one else cares?’ I had tried to enquire why she looked low one morning many years ago in one of my higher secondary classes in a prominent school in the Republic of Maldives, where I worked… // Read More
