Dr. H N

Today its a biggest loss to Educational field. We all lost one of the greatest educationalist, Dr. HN.
He was the President of National Education Society (NES) , which comprises of National Higher Primary School, National High School, National College and variuos branches.

He was one of the greatest personalities who had dedicated his complete life to one Goal.
He was one of the greatest personalities who used to live in 10x10 Hostel room for the entire lifetime with his students
He was one of the greatest personalities who din't have anything of his own, no family, no house, no car nothing
He was one of the greatest personalities who used to eat in Hostel mess like a simple student.
He was one of the greatest personalities who encouraged even 4th Std child to think scientifically
He was one of the greatest personalities who used to imbibe science into every drop of his blood
He was one of the greatest personalities who lived like a philosopher, being a science prof
He was one of the greatest personalities who followed Gandhian rules for the entire lifetime
He was one of the greatest personalities who wore only Khadi for the entire lifetime

He was Vice Chancellor of Bangalore Univ.
He challanged Sai Baba many times for his "Pawadas"
He used to walk everyday in Lalbagh
He used to listen to melodious Music.
He enjoyed our group song, One of his fav.s was " Baaro saadhana kErige, maraLi ninnee bhoomige", by Da. Ra. Bendre

I bow my head to him and touch his feet, for all the dedication, simplicity and achievement he has done for educational field.

Desire and Expectation

Hmm.. Welcome back to Bloggers world Karthik....
Uffffff it was really hectic week... Loads of work...

Some days back Sachin, a colleague of mine and I were having another tea-time dicussion. During ythe course of conversation he told "Expectation is root cause of Misery" and he related that to one of the Kannada saying --> " aaseyE dukhakke moola", which translates to " Desire is root cause of Misery " . Then started our actual debate..

Sachin says --> Desire and Expectations are same..
Karthik says--> No they are different, however they might be related..

Sachin thinks for a while and says --> hmm.. may be you are right..

Sachin tries to relate them --> When ever you have desire, you have some expectations..
Sachin relates them with another exmple --> Airplane and Its wings.. where Airplane is mapped to Desire and Baggage is to Expectation.

Karthik gives an example contradicting Sachin's statement--> My desire is to get married with Aishwarya Rai.. but I dont expect that to happen..

Sachin thinks again ang gives another Ex: --> Airplane and Baggage. Airplane is mapped to Desire and Baggage to Expectation.. Airplane can contain a Baggage but Baggage can exist without Airplane also.. So they are related in a very loose manner..

What do you think .. ??

~ Scary and Dangerous ~

This afternoon during tea time we had a good discussion of Scary things and Dangerous things.. These terms looks very similar but they are different. Here are some of the example we thought about.. Why dont you add more

Lion inside a cage --> Scary but not Dangerous
View from 10th floor inside a building --> Scary but not Dangerous
Fine sand on a road turning --> Not scary but Dangerous
Bangalore Girls --> Not scary but Dangerous
Bangalore Traffic --> Scary and also Dangerous
