I need it in life!"
"His grandmother and I are raising him. I worry about putting him into the public school system. I was a teacher for many years. I’ve seen so much confidence destroyed by the standardized system. Every human is born with natural curiosity. I’ve never seen a child who wasn’t inspired. But once you force someone to do anything, the inspired person is killed. I dropped out of school myself in 7th grade. So I know. I taught a GED course for years, so I’ve seen the end results over and over. I’ve seen so many kids who have complexes and insecurities because they were forced to do something they weren’t ready to do, and then they were blamed when they weren’t able to do it. What we call ‘education’ today is not organic. You can’t take something as complex as the human mind, compartmentalize it, and regiment its development so strictly."
"To practice any art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow. So do it."

Rishbha told me about this artist the other day and I have been listening to his composition since then. This piece is the one which I could relate myself the most. Thanks Rishbha for introducing me this wonderful musician.

They are really adorable, walking through all over the campus, which makes me feel more than happy every evening. Looking for a lot more surprises everyday.
