The Best Teacher

If you are asking me about the best teacher i have met, it will make me think.There are lot of teachers who have taught me over the years different subjects and knowledge.Among them i respect and remember some and i forgot and ignored some.
Unknown Kindergarten Teacher
I don't know her name.She taught me when i was in LKG and UKG.I remember the classes i studied during the couple of years.I remember about the nap i had in the afternoons.Now i had learning disability problem during those years.I remember clearly me trying hard to write the letter B.I was four years old then.It was not a crime for a four year old for not knowing english alphabets and numbers.My mom had a chat with the teacher.My mom asked the teacher to drop me back to UKG while my friends would be going to the other block in the school (Class I).This teacher replied negative and she told my mom that there is nothing wrong with my brain and she can give special attention.Today i am grateful to that teacher.I know her…

Maruti Astar Buying Experience

My experience in buying automobile products was evident in the purchase of a new car in 2009.The decisions happended so fast.At kayankulam railway station, i found a maruti astar hatchback.It was Sunlight Copper in color.I found it attractive.Couple of weeks later, all of a sudden i thought of buying a new car.My options were........
1. Chevy Spark 2. Maruti Astar 3. Hyundai i10 4. Hyundai Santro
Finally i went for Maruti Astar.Here are the reasons that convinced me to choose a maruti. Maruti cars are comparatively cheaper to maintain.Service stations are everywhere and spares are easily available.
Why i bought Astar?
Fuel Efficiency of Astar as certified by ARAI is 19.6 kmph .Good performance and interiors.In the interior more space is dedicated to the driver and his fellow passenger.I wanted a small car to move it around in indian roads.I liked the looks of Astar.Most of my usage is in the weekends and 80 percent of the travel with rear seats empty.Since i am working online in my office roo…

The Evening was Worthwhile

25 years back, my Father built a building.We call it Vaisakh.It is located at Para Juntion, a place in my home town, Nooranad.Now this building has been divided to rooms and are leased to different clients.It include a family dwelling in the 1BHK home in the building.After my father's death, I am the landlord.One day i got a call from one tenant.I went there and found employees from the local panchayat measuring with tapes.Now they told me that the government is going to increase the building tax this year.This happened in mid 2009 and they gave me some forms which i needed to fill up and resubmit to them.
Now here is a situation that shows my true colors.I sat upon that statement for an year.It was supposed to be returned to the panchayat office within a fortnight.Now when the tax for 2009 - 2010 year was due, i remembered about the forms.I took them and searched for all the documents that might be of use.I could complete the forms in an hour, all the six of them.It was very funny…

My First Blog Post in 2010

Here's what about me and my blog in 2009.I was both busy and lazy in 2009 and will be the same in 2010.And i started a weight reducing program in 2009 and it is still nowhere.Reduced 6 kilograms in six months.So slow huh ......but feeling healthy..Started strength training for all the body parts.Hoping it will reduce my cholesterol levels and increase good cholesterol.I am doing the workouts in the evening in 2010 unlike in 2009.In 2009, i visited the gym at 7 am and gets out at 8:30 or 9.The new timing is comfortable.
There was not much blogging action on digital tyke during 2009.As usual i am promising more posts in 2010.But one thing is for sure, you cannot change yourself in a time period of hours, you can do it only in a time period of years.Hoping to do more serious blogging.Vowing not to let this blog die a slient death.
