MY HEART DID A "JIG" !!!!!! :-)
Yesterday evening I had a very pleasant surprise of my life which I never had before . My heart did a 'jig' , a 'Bhangra', a 'Bharata natyam' !!!!! All put together !!!!! It was a unique experience and I want to share it with all my friends. I have been teaching KANNADA to non kannadiga's of our gated community since about a couple of months. I am amazed at their interest in learning and their speed in learning. Yesterday they were able to read about 50 difficult kannada words!!!! one of the students who happens to be the president of our association gave me a ring in the evening and asked me if he can meet me in my house for a couple.of minutes.I thought he wants to discuss some problems of the residents. No , I was wrong !!!!! Totally wrong !!!! He came in with a paper bag containing a very beautiful PETER ENGLAND SHIRT of my size costing around a thousand rupees .!!!!! I was speechless when he said " it is a small token of respect for the teacher in you !!!! " After he left , I kissed the bag with the shirt and my eyes blurred with tears of joy overflowing !!!!!
