When My Student Called Me UNCLE



One might mull over that when the student call their teacher an ‘uncle’, it represent an indomitable bond of intimacy or sublime friendship or an unconditional closeness for that matter. But such happenstance to me was kind of a bizarre and quite mystical encounter, especially when we are positioned to a working place that seizes sizable amount of people’s expectation and reverence in believing to have a frictionless and methodical working system.    
I am more than a week old into my new place of posting. And getting stationed to this habitat has altogether been a mixed blessing.

While there was none whom I possibly know in person, there wasn’t any who broke the virgin of introducing with me. I was still pregnant with the hopes that I might be inducted at least to the working system, let alone sacrificing some time in introducing me to the entire working family. But nothing happened either. Has the later been done, I would not have been greeted as ‘uncle’ by my own students. Even at this moment, I am in the course of getting myself acclimatized with the working regularity and routine. And rather dispiriting is the fact that I have to drive almost 13 miles diurnal, breaking the silence of that mute dawn and return home lighting that murky dusk.  
But as the growth and survival has to be natural, time is testing me to fit into the system through a chain of trial and error mechanism. At this moment, all I realized is that when the people around do not smell our presence, at times, we are at win-win situation.

The face of the 21st Century World



The epoch of the 21st century has ushered in by a dramatic revolution in technology, education, culture, language and beliefs. And amusingly, due to the rapid evolution of those dynamic entities, we are settling our feet to live in an increasingly complex, mysteriously diverse, exceedingly globalized and transparently politics-soaked society.
We have no idea of how the face of our world will look like after many years along the line. And as expected, to a fool like me, it is always a fairytale to be heard of.
With the birth of every New Year, we hear the world rejoice with the hymns of infinite praises and scores of pledges. Those pledges to make the world a better place to live in, those pledges to improve the human lives, and of course those pledges to turn over a new leaf.
But as the days fall from the twig of the calendar, every resolutions wither and perish, and gradually bury under the cemetery of one’s memory. That’s the time where we hear the alarms of global warming, buzzer of famine and poverty, and watch stories on social Medias about the crises on health, values, society and living environment, all singularly ignited by the button of self-greed and hunger.

While the emerging technologies and resulting globalizations are expected to broaden unlimited possibilities for exciting new era of positive change, situations are rather running otherwise.
Even at an individual level, we observe that the world is already drenched with self-conceit and dusted with the smoke of prejudices and discrimination. People with education are the ugliest because they drink egos by sitting on the cup of their temporary chair. As one rises into a sizeable power and authority, their visions and hearing organs virtually gets impaired. They no longer see the honest agony of human sufferings and do not easily hear the common human cries of genuine helplessness. It has been a ritual that an anthem of praise for doing nothing has to be sung first, prior to the unfolding of our hands to touch the ground of those cruel thorny hands as a gesture of greetings. A smile beyond the capacity of our jaws can extend, has to be exposed to indicate the acceptance of words manufactured by their skillful tongue. The words has to filtered and distilled before it is poured into the cup of conversation, because 21st century words are bizarrely contaminated with a political connotations.
In all essence, the dream of crafting a world built by the bricks of Utopian characteristics is a synonym of impracticality. While the childhood of the 21st century is already caught with the cancer of human greed and selfishness, it is certainly convincing that the world at adulthood will suffer from the terminal cancer, which is just incurable and hopeless.
