I believe that everybody enters my life to teach me a lesson. Once their part is over, they gradually make their way out. I am a person who loves nurturing humanity and relations. I love investing my time in helping others and assisting as much as I can. By doing so, I relish a strange tranquility that is difficult to be achieved by different modes. So, to tell you one such situation when I taught something to someone, I will go back to my school days.
In the science class, we were given a presentation to make on plant reproduction. I was quite thrilled because the topic was my favourite and I loved doing technical stuff on my computer. While everybody was discussing how to move ahead with it, there was a boy – named Sudeep – sitting at a corner in the last bench. I could not comprehend the reason behind him being so quiet. So, I walked to him and asked about what was troubling him.
He hesitated a bit initially. Later, he told me that he does not come from a financially strong background. As a result, neither did he have a computer at home nor knew how to make a presentation. Also, he did not want to disclose this information as he was petrified that other classmates would make fun of him.
I understood what he might be going through. So, in a jiffy, I invited him to my house. Not only did I let him operate my computer, but I also taught him how to make a presentation. I must say he was a quick learner. He created a captivating presentation that bagged him the first prize.
