William Shakespeare had once famously quoted,“God has given you one face, and you make yourself another.”
This blog is, in a way, a means to make myself another face. Ever since I could be affected by the world around and ever since I could opine, ‘Education’ has continued to greatly influence my mindset both positively as well as negatively. It was because of this interest that I opted for a course in Bachelors in Education. During the course, I became a witness to so many novel and interesting ideas and concepts that I couldn’t resist myself from opining back again. Then I felt the need to express myself in a platform that would seem more comfortable and more preferred. And thus blogging as an idea developed.
The most fundamental aim of this blog is to establish itself solely, on an ‘education-based’ theme. In fact I would prefer addressing it as an educational blog that deals with everything that has anything to do with education. This is also how, the blog name ‘the igniting lamp’ emerged. Being a future teacher, I strongly concur with Rabindranath Tagore’s (a powerful pioneer of Indian education) quote “A teacher can never truly teach unless he is still learning himself. A lamp can never light another lamp unless it continues to burn in its own flame.” So I feel that every teacher, should make it a point to keep igniting himself/herself by updating his/her knowledge. This blog for me is exactly a means to do just that and self-reflect on where I stand when it comes to a particular opinion.
