Thank you, little brothers & sisters!

Thank you, little brothers & sisters!

Rather than calling it my first day of volunteering in Bhumi, I would call it the awesome experience of getting to know a new family I was going to become a part of. Well, I was really shivering, as it was going to be a totally new experience and environment for me.

When I first entered the class, all the kids started greeting and wishing my co-volunteer who came with me, while I was simply standing there without knowing what to say or do. Then a kid voluntarily asked my name and then another kid next to him joined and started asking me more questions. I had entered the class with the anticipation that I would be the one to initiate conversations, coaxing the kids to get overcome their shyness. But the kids did their magic! I was the shy one, and they were the ones who made me feel comfortable and at ease!! When the class began, they listened intently and I was observing my co-volunteer Kishore address the class. I really have to highlight the way the kids asked their doubts! None of us would imagine the level at which they think when clarifying doubts. Sometimes they ask tricky questions too. I have experienced a situation where a kid tried to convince me why 16+16 should be 22.

After that first-day experience, I felt relaxed as I started thinking of them not as my students but as my little brothers and sisters. I owe those kids a big ‘thank you’, because if they hadn’t spoken up first, I can’t imagine how the day would have been. And for me, each class seems to be my first class as I learn more and more each day.
