Hey guys,

So, I wanted to make a post regarding an update on my street school which is a collaborated project of Chadar and EOTO Foundation. I work as a Street School Teacher there. This project aims to educate the children of the streets by setting up a street-side teaching platform. The intention is to break through the folds of illiteracy and assist underprivileged children towards a brighter future. The aim is to teach them the necessary skills to help them get ahead in life.

It starts off by dividing the students into four levels according to their stages of…


The street school is a collaborated project of Chadar and the EOTO Foundation. I work as a Street School Teacher there. This project aims to educate the children of the streets by setting up a street-side teaching platform. The intention is to break through the folds of illiteracy and assist underprivileged children towards a brighter future. The aim is to teach them the necessary skills to help them get ahead in life.

I joined the school on December 7, 2020.

I work as a volunteer street school teacher, 1.5 hours daily, six days a week.

It has been four months…


I never truly had appreciated the privilege of having a classroom to study in all the educational institutions I went to study and always took it for granted until I started teaching at my street school.

Now, that I teach in my street school in an open space in a local park, I truly appreciate the warmth of having a proper classroom to study. It is a privilege but we do not acknowledge it.

The school was off yesterday due to the rain.

The educational institutes I went to study for were never off due to rain. …


Reading~

You should do lots of that.

Like really lots and lots of.

You should read 500 pages a day.

You should read for straight three hours a day with your undivided attention.

You should read all day.

Reading is healthy.

Reading is attractive.

Reading is good for you.

Reading is one of the habits I have started in 2020, which I will continue in 2021 and all my life.

Reading is the best.

I read many things. I read Quora, emails, newsletters, books, booklets, instruction manuals, outlines, guidelines, novels, articles, blogs, webcomics, social media posts, research papers, and different…


People’s Comments Do Not Make Me Sad Anymore.

It used to make me sad previously, but now not anymore.

‘tum kitni moti ho’

‘tum kitni ajeeb c ho’

‘tum maasi lagti ho dekhnay main’

‘tum kitni zada roti thoonsti ho’

‘tum pagal ho’

‘aesi aurten aesi hi hoti hain’

‘isko tau theek say chalna b nahi aata’

‘kitna ooncha bolti hai’

‘isko bolna b nahi aata’

‘is kay kapray kesay say hain’

‘tum aesi ho’

‘tum wesi ho’

You know what, people…

Take your comments…

Take your toxicity…

Take your negativity…

Take everything you have…

Take it.

Take it, and…


I was just walking around yesternight when this thought came to me, and I decided to write about it.

Learning Can’t Happen If You Keep Thinking About What Others Are Thinking About You.

It is the truth. Fullstop.

Whatever I have learned; whenever I learned; it only happened when I was 100% myself. When I did not give a damn about anybody and anybody’s opinion about me, myself, and my work.

I used to worry in university a lot about what others are thinking about me, a lot.

I still worry about it, but now, a lot less than before.


Is it a crime to dream?

Is it a crime to think differently?

Is it a crime to dream success when you are a failure?

Is it a crime to talk about your dreams?

Is it a crime to tell people about your plans?

Is it a crime to be a dreamer?

Maybe, yes, it is.

In the acreage of the ignorant, in the heavens of the arrogant, in the property of the cursed, in the dwelling of the fool.

But, you should dream.

You must dream.

Dream makes impossible things possible.

Dreams give you hope, joy, and a reason…


People tell me that I have lost 5 to 6 years of income and of my career by failing and quitting my previous undergraduate degree.

Maybe, they are right.

But, I am just grateful, very grateful to God that I have been given this chance to restart my education, to rebuild the career.

You know, most people are not given this chance.

Some people simply can not afford it.

Some people do not have the resources.

Some people do not have the money.

Some people’s families do not let them.

Some girls get married away by their families.

When I…


They said that I do not care for my career.

Oh, sweetie, I cared so much for my career that I followed a whole 10K stuff on Quora only to get a glimpse of what should be my career, what should I be doing in my life, what should I be, what should I become.

They said that I do not care for my career because I had bad grades.

They said that I do not care for my career because I had a low GPA.

They said that I do not care for my career because I had Fs…


I want to go to university again. I want to take the lectures again. I want to listen to the professor again. I want to look at the whiteboard again. I want to make notes again. I want to make assignments again. I want to make projects again. I want to look at slides again. I want to read books, again. I want to study in the university’s library again. I want to give presentations again. I want to prepare for the quizzes, OHTs, and exams again. I want to take quizzes again. I want to give OHTs again. I…
