Some piano students are able to practise regularly without much effort, while others struggle. Long term piano students who do well in piano lessons often excel in their studies. And some even have time for other hobbies.
This poem explores two important factors that give long term piano students their ability to do so much.
I tried kitchen waste composting at home for a year and gave up, when I realised my time composting was better spent changing our purchasing patterns so we buy grocery items loose, without plastic. This is a little effort, because dry fruits, grains, fruit and vegetable of a good quality often aren’t available at the same store. But it’s been worth it, as it’s cut our plastic waste quite a bit.

Making a decision to buy a new floor cleaning robot
Our old Eureka Forbes floor cleaning robot started to fall apart, and couldn’t be repaired. We invested in it years ago, but it took us a while to reorganise our home for it. So, we only started to really use it 6 months before it died.

What if I also tell you that less than half of our students in class 8th can solve a class four division problem and barely 47% of children in grade 5 can read a grade 2 level text? Our students have been caught in the clutches of our government’s ignorance. Someone once rightly said that most ignorance is “vincible ignorance”. We don’t know because we don’t want to know and people don’t want to hear the truth because they don’t want their illusions destroyed. To secure India’s future, providing a better education to India’s youth is imperative.
I believe only education fundamentally can change our current scenario. It can help make people independent because all the wealth in the world cannot help our people unless they are not taught to help themselves. All they need is moral and…
