Hello, friends! Good morning everybody.
It’s indeed my pleasure describing my village. I live in Azhagappapuram. It’s a beautiful village. It’s a farming village, too. Most of our people take to farming. Our village is located between Anjugramam and Mylaudy on the Anjugramam Nagercoil road.
It’s around ten kilometers to the North of Kanyakumari. So tourists come to our village on their way to Kanyakumari.
Our ancestors highly valued education. So they wanted a school in the village. They soon realized their educational aspirations. Yes, the first school in our village was founded in 1915 by a great teacher in his own house. With the support of some few teachers and the philanthropists of our village the school gradually developed from lower primary to Grade V. And in 1921 the founders dedicated the school to the village. In those days the village school was called “Thinnai Pallikoodam” (Home School).
Patronage of education poured in from every family and every individual of our neighborhood. Happily, today there are two higher secondary schools, a high school, a primary school and a play school in our village. There are two health care centers, Govt. Primary Health Center and Velankanni Hospital, serving the cause of health promotion in our village.
Our parents highly value formal education. So, all the children attend school. Our villagers are hard workers. Many of our men work in the gulf countries. Some few work in Europe, U S A, U K, Japan, Australia and Africa.
We love everybody and live in perfect harmony. I like my village and love all my neighbors.
Hello! Good morning friends
I live in Muttom. It’s my native village. I like my village and love everyone here. It’s a beautiful place.
Muttom is a fishing village located sixteen kilometers to the South West of Nagercoil.
Catholics make up most of the population here and they do a variety of jobs. Majority of the people are fishermen. They go fishing every day. Most of the people are matriculates.
Muttom has a primary school, a higher secondary school, a C B S E school and a college of education. Work has begun on the construction of a medical college.
Muttom has a clean and beautiful beach. The fishing harbor and the Children’s Park add to the loveliness of the seaside resort. Children play games and enjoy a lot of fun there. You are welcome to Muttom. Thank you.
Once there lived a teacher. He was very honest and quite straight forward with everyone he met, particularly his school children. On his first day at school he introduced himself saying he was just an average teacher. As he was a fresher from the college of education and as he didn’t have any exposure to schools he thought he would be an average sort of teacher. So he said to his class children if he worked out four problems two would be right and two would be wrong. Self introduction over, Mr. Straightforward turned to the blackboard to start his lessons. He wrote “Algebra” on the black board and asked his children to define Algebra. As there was no response, he turned to see the class. As can be expected all the students had left the class.
All of us have a body, mind and spirit. We are able to see the body, feel the mind and realize the spirit, the soul, the TRUE SELF or the presence of God within us.
Spirituality is the quality of being able to love everybody unconditionally and live every moment in its fullness.
GOD is LOVE and LOVE is GOD, both are inseparable.
GOD reflects Himself in every human person.
God is present in every human person in the form of SPIRIT. Those who realize the presence of GOD/SPIRIT within are as divine, as powerful, as creative and as loving as GOD Himself.
Those who LIVE LOVE and PROMOTE LOVE are spiritual leaders.

Once there lived a king. He loved his people so dearly that he wanted them get the best gifts of life and enjoy every moment in its fullness. So he called the wise men of his court and told them to go round the globe, visit libraries, do research, interact with the sages of other countries and return with the magic formula of getting the best gifts this life can offer.
Afterwards what happened?
What did the wise men do?
Were they able to work out the gift formula?
Was the formula acceptable to the king and his people?
Please watch the play for answers.
It may be easy to answer the question by saying that the developing countries are poor because they are poor. The question again is why so? The main reason is population explosion. Whatever progress made by this category of countries is effectively counterbalanced by an ever increasing population. It is like a typical family. If the number of children is more than four and the daily or monthly income moderately increases, the typical family will have problems in later years to make ends meet. It won’t have a scope of savings and its financial difficulties will keep multiplying. Similarly a country, having to take care of over a billion people, will always find itself scuffing for cash. Even if it makes significant progress in mopping up revenues, expenses would outpace those. The result is low or no savings. Such countries are usually forced to apply for loans from international banks and financial institutions. After having got the funds, the recipient developing countries would find it difficult to repay or debt-service as undertaken by them.
Another aspect that typifies a developing country is its grossly inadequate sanitation and hygiene. The consequence of this is outbreak of diseases and at times epidemics. The main reason for this serious shortcoming is meager allocation of funds and resources for up-keep of the country. It is like a Domino Effect. One bad occurrence will trigger off a chain of several reverses.
In this context, it might be appropriate to invoke China, the emerging super power (or, already one?) Before 1975, China was lagging behind India in all walks of life. Its Per Capita income was nearly half of India’s. Undaunted, China was in search of the main reason why it was lagging behind several countries of the world, including India. It figured out that rapid population growth rate had prevented it from making real progress and lift its population out of poverty and squalor. After considerable deliberations, China promulgated an ordinance that ordered each Chinese couple not to bear more than one child. The one-child policy made the people wary. It is customary for any couple anywhere to have two children, at least: one heir, one spare. But the Chinese were abruptly deprived of that small luxury. They were disallowed to have more than one child. If anyone broke the rule, he would lose the government provided benefits like subsidized food ration, health care, bank loan, etc. Gradually, the Chinese people started complying with the strict one-child policy. The population slowly stabilized and eased the pressure that had built on the nation. In about 10-15 years, China made giant strides in major areas like industry and infrastructure. This made China a favorable location for world factories. It attracted billions and billions of foreign direct investments. Soon, the Chinese per capita income and purchasing power leapfrogged. The world started looking at China with awe. As religions had been banned long since, Chinese had a lot of time at their disposal, unlike many other countries, which wasted time on glorifying imaginary gods and fighting wars on religious lines.
If other developing countries want to grow rapidly and shed the “developing country” tag, they can very well replicate what China did to defeat the odds and forge ahead to write a success story.
To be honest, the Chinese experience is no panacea. It may not work in other places. But it is worth trying to eradicate poverty, penury, ill-health, illiteracy, superstitions, and lack of cleanliness prevalent in developing countries. A confident big push might do the trick!
This is my father. His name is Fog. He is fifty-five. He is a journalist and a travel writer. He travels around the world, meets people of different cultures and shares his experience in the social media. His little articles which appear in the social media are very much appreciated by the global community.
This is my mother. Her name’s Isabel. She is fifty two. She is a software engineer. She has a talent for painting. So she paints pictures during her spare time and gifts them to friends and neighbors. Everybody admires her paintings and adorn the walls of their homes with her paintings.
These are my grandparents. They are retired teachers. They are good at story telling. So we listen to their stories before going to bed every night. Believe me, sometimes we fall asleep while the stories are still in progress but that doesn’t stop their narration.
This is my brother Ajar. He is a college student. He attends National Institute of Biological Sciences in II M.Sc. microbiology. He wants to be a scientist. And this is my sister Natalya. She is a school girl. She is doing her grade xii at Evergreen International School. She is a voracious reader. She wants to be a short story writer.
One of the powerful forces, if not the most powerful, controlling our life is our habit. Do you agree with me? I hope so. From getting up in the morning to going to bed at night ninety percent of the things we do are habitual.
I am a teacher. I’m an excellent teacher and I want to be more excellent everyday because teaching is the most essential profession, the one that makes every other profession possible. In my opinion, as long as teaching is excellent every service, including teaching itself, will be excellent and all of us will feel life is good. V.S. Ryan
2. Hello! My name is Alison. I am a home maker. My main job is to take care of my husband, children and home. I cook for the family, do the dishes, wash clothes, clean the house and help my children with their home work. At weekends I go shopping to buy provisions for the family.
A: We are news reporters.
As news reporters we visit important places, meet people, interview them, investigate news worthy events, write news stories and get them published. Our duties include collecting information about the problems of the society and serving as a liaison between various departments of the government and the community.
Kumara and Sushi.
A: Of course, with pleasure. I’m Chino Sami. I’m a fourth generation farmer. Our main crops include paddy, banana and green vegetables.
A: Rightly said it’s just a service. We have ten acres of land. My wife and I go to the farm every morning and work till noon. We have two farm assistants. They live in our farm house and take care of the farm. We generate some income to live by and educate our children. We live happily in perfect harmony with our neighbors.
A: Um! They’d never. I have two sons and a daughter. They may leave the village and settle in cities or may even leave the country.
A: In our country farmers cannot survive. The government is very much against the farmers and agriculture. We have lost almost all our water bodies. How could any farmer survive in a country like this?
A: We hope so.
Hello, friends! Good morning everybody. It’s indeed my greatest pleasure describing my neighborhood. I live in the neighborhood of Evergreen village. Evergreen is a farming village. We have gorgeous mountains and luxuriant vegetation around our village and so it is beautiful.
Our village is located between Chennai and Bangalore on the Chennai Bangalore Highway. It’s around forty kilometers to the West of Chennai and there are posh restaurants on both sides of the highway. So tourists from both cities visit our village almost every day.
There are two higher secondary schools, a C.B.S.E. School, four primary schools, two play schools, an athletic complex and a primary health center in our village.
Our parents highly value education. So, all the children go to school. Our villagers are hard workers. Many of our men work in the gulf countries. Some few work in Europe, U.S.A. Australia, Japan and Africa.
We have a village parliament with neighborhood leaders who take care of Education, agriculture, water management, community welfare, sports, entertainment and all essential services. So life is very pleasant and people love everybody and live in perfect harmony. Thank you.
What's the weather like in your neighborhood today? Please describe the weather in your neighborhood. You are welcome to borrow sentences from the sentence bank.
I started school at Evergreen Play school when I was just three. I moved to St. Antony’s Primary School at five and passed my grade five from the same school. I went to St. Antony’s Hr. Sec. School at 10 and passed my Higher Secondary course in 1995. I attended Thirunelveli College of Engineering and passed my Bachelor of engineering degree course in computer science in 1999.
While I was doing my final year, I applied for job in several companies. I attended half a dozen interviews and finally found a job as sales executive in a reputed company. My monthly salary was Rs. 38, 000 and this was quite a good salary for Chennai. I needed this money for my family’s survival in Chennai. So I continued to work for the company.
I am able to work up to my company’s expectations and beyond and so I have been promoted to Marketing Manager and subsequently my salary has been increased to Rs. 85, 000 a month. I am comfortable with my career, but I have a dream, which is to start a school in one of our villages and serve the cause of education.
I know it is extremely expensive and I'll have to save up for years. However, this is fine with me. The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams. And I am one. I know while it is important to dream, the actualization of our dreams is more significant. For that to happen it is essential that we plan our time and work our plan envisioning a happier future for the society we live in.
I have a dream. I want to go to our villages, organize our neighbors into neighborhood communities and open Neighborhood Community Schools in partnership with the members of the community and serve the interests of people particularly education and employment.

Dr. Ramamurthy popularly called “Our Farmers’ Doctor” is in need of a driver. He wants to appoint a person who has a positive attitude to people and work besides impeccable credentials. So he leaves an advertisement at the garden gate of his house calling candidates for interview. Subsequently four candidates appear for the interview. Which candidate gets through the interview? I understand your curiosity about the results. Please watch the play.
Candidate-1: Hi, watchman! Is Dr. Ramamurthy in?
Elderly Person: Yes, may I know who you are?
Candidate 1: I’m a candidate for interview.
E.P. : Oh! I see. Then open the gate and enter.
Candidate-1: You are the watch man, aren’t you?
E. P. : Yes, I am. But, you can open the gate, can’t you?
Candidate-1: It’s your duty to open the gate, isn’t it? Then why don’t you do it?
E.P.: If you want to enter, open the gate yourself. Or stay out.
Candidate-1: Are you going to open the gate or not? I’ll complain to the doctor.
E. P.: Most welcome, gentleman. Please go ahead.
Candidate-1: (Takes his mobile in a hurry, dials the doctor but unfortunately nobody receives the call. He dials some four times in vain and leaves there murmuring.) How arrogant! If the watch man is this arrogant how much more the doctor must be. How could anyone work in an environment like this? This is not a suitable place for me. I must leave here. (leaves)
Candidate-2: Good morning, security.
E. P. : Good morning, sir. Who are you?
C-2: I’m a driver. I’ve come for an interview. Is the doctor in?
E.P: Yes, of course he is in. The gate is already open. Just raise the latch and push the gate in.
C-2: Ok, let me try. (He raises the latch, pushes the gate in and enters.)
Where is the interview going to be held?
E.P.: At the doctor’s clinic. I know you’ve come for interview. But I am in need of help. Would you help me with my work? I’ve been working in the garden since morning. So I’m tired. Could you help me with weeding the garden?
C-2: Sorry, security. I just can’t do such work. I’m a high profile driver so I’ll do only my work. I can’t do anything else.
E.P.: Then you must look for some other person and find work. Our doctor wants a driver who is willing to do any job, gardening primarily, plumbing, electrical works and sometimes domestic chore, too.
C-2: That’s horrible. I just can’t think of it. I think I have come to a wrong place. (Leaves)
Candidate-3: Hello, gentlemen! Is this Dr. Ramamurthy’s residence?
Man-1: Yes, it is.
C-3: Is the doctor in?
Man-1: Yes, he is. May I know who you are?
C-3: I’m a candidate for interview. May I come in?
Man-1: Please come in. You are most welcome.
C-3: But the gate has been fastened. I don’t know how to open it. Could you help me?
Man-2: Just raise the latch. It’ll open.
C-3: (Opens the gate and enters the garden) I’d be pleased to know the venue for the interview.
Man-2: I’ll take you there. But first follow me. We have been trying hard to take the submersible pump out of the sump. But it’s too heavy to lift. Could you help us?
C-3: No, I don’t want to get dirty in the mud.
C.3: Good morning , madam. Is the doctor in?
Woman:Yes, he is. What’s the purpose of your visit?
C. 3: I’m a driver, madam. I have come for interview.
Woman: Welcome. Before you go can you help me with cleaning the fan and the ceiling? I’m unable to reach the roof however hard I try.
C.3: Sorry, madam. I won’t stay here another moment. (Leaves)
Candidate-4: Good morning, sir. I’m driver Ravi. I’ve come for interview. May I come in, sir?

C-4: Yes, sir. (He proceeds towards the parlor. He sees an elderly woman struggling to clean the roof of the parlor. He volunteers help.)
Excuse me, madam. Can I help you?
Woman: That’s kind of you. I have been making all efforts to clean the roof since morning but I’m unable to reach it. You can clean it after the interview if you prefer so.
C-4: No, madam. I’ll do it right now. ( Takes the broom, climbs up the ladder, cleans the fan and the roof.)
Woman: I very much appreciate your attitude to work and willingness to share work with others. A receptionist will take to the venue for the interview. Till then you can wait in the parlor. So take care.
C-4: Thank you, madam.
Receptionist: Good morning, sir. Are you ready for the interview?
Candidate-4: Yes, madam.
Receptionist: You look one successful candidate. Be confident. Would you like to have a glass of juice?
Candidate: Thank you, madam. (He drinks the juice and the follows her to a room. He is surprised to see the elderly person, the woman and the two young men he had met in the garden sitting around a round table with a copy each of his resume. He is a little scared of the interview panel. Gathering strength he enters the interview room. Having the necessary qualifications and experience he feels confident of getting through the interview. So he enters the room with total self confidence and a cheerful disposition. He looks at the interviewers and greets them making eye contact with each one. The interviewers stand and extend a handshake. He shakes hands with everyone and waits for questions.)
Candidate-4: Good morning everybody. I’m driver Ravi. I’ve come for interview.

The essence of education is the celebration of every person, particularly children, everywhere, every moment. Every child is a potential winner. Celebrations at school such as sports day, annual day, patron’s day, children’s day, parent’s day, grand parents’ day and Independence Day are opportunities for children to unlock their potential, discover talents, learn skills and display them to fellow students and others. It is an occasion for getting together and sharing fun to cheer up one another, too. So we celebrate sports day in a grand manner in our St. Patrick’s academy every year.
This year we celebrated our sports day in a grand manner on September 12, 2018. We had the pleasure of having our Kung fu master as our chief guest. The chief guest hoisted the national flag, delivered the inaugural address and started off the series of events which had already been planned for the day.
We had events such as 100 meter and 200 meter sprints, variety of other races including relay race, shot put and jumps. All our aspirant athletes participated with great enthusiasm. Our school children entertained the spectators by staging dances and performing mass drills.
In our St. Patrick’s Academy the school children have been divided into four houses, Azad, Gandhi, Tagore and Prasad. As part of preparation for our sports day our competitors have to undergo a selection process, first within each house and then at school level. Only those who get through the selection process will represent their respective houses in the sports day meet. While the house reps compete with one another to win, the other members sit comfortably in their tents and support their heroes by clapping and cheering up. Our chief guest, our principal and teachers and our parents are with us the whole day sharing the joy of the celebration. Their graceful presence is a blessing and a great motivation for all of us.
After the events were over the chief guest, our kung fu master, delivered the day’s message emphasizing the importance of physical education and sport. As well as helping children to be more competitive, school sports day is also an occasion to enjoy a day in the sunshine sharing company with school community. Children relax while they learn skills and entertain themselves and others while they relax.
It has been proved that participation in sport is important to the holistic development of children and young people. So parents should encourage children to participate in sport meets and celebrate participation and achievement equally. He said it was also an occasion to learning team spirit and mastering the art of community living.
Having accomplished the day’s tasks our captains de hoisted the flag and handed it over to our principal. It was a memorable day and we cherish the memory of the day enjoying life in its fullness. I hope our sports day next year would be more entertaining and enriching than this year’s.
