It was a good sunny morning; Kashyap came running to his grandpa, Mr.Ramesh is a man who was at his 70s. When Kashyap neared his grandpa, his grandpa noticed that Kashyap was crying. Mr.Ramesh begun questioning Kashyap about what has happened, but he couldn’t stop Kashyap from crying. So Mr.Ramesh had to make his grandson sit on his lap and pacify him. After a while Kashyap stopped crying and begun to complain about his school to his grandpa. After listening to all his complaints his grandpa laughed and first made his grandson to refresh himself and eat his lunch. The 8 year old kid followed his grandpa’s instructions and ate his lunch.
Now the grandpa called Kashyap and told him “Well my dear boy, school is a place where which shapes your future and makes you a complete human being by teaching you all values of life. Just because your teacher scolded you for one day don’t mean that she doesn’t like you, her intention was to correct your mistakes at that point. Consider this example, if you have a fever doctor will inject you with some medicines and that will be painful only at that point , but your fever will vanish within hours and brings you to normal state.
The punishment or the scolding which you get from your teacher is like that vaccine, which will make you a better person. So don’t feel sad for this small thing. There will be one day where you have to go out of this place after your schooling gets completed, you will have number of memories when you go out and you will miss your school at that time as I do now. So enjoy your days when you are at your school.” Even after all this, that 8 year old kid wasn’t convinced with what his grandpa told and he went out of the room angrily.
