Why ‘Being Slow’ could be the next big thing in Education?
A recent newspaper article mentioned the screening of Paan Singh Tomar at IFFI, Goa attended by Sutapa Sikdar and Babil, the beloved wife and elder son of Irrfan Khan. She quoted a dialogue from the movie, ‘Ek race ko poora karna padta hai. Chahe haar ho, chahe jeet ho, ek finish line hai, usko chhoona padta hai’ and added ‘Irrfan’s finish line came too soon, but he played well.’ If we look around, are we preparing our children for this race or are we teaching them merely to race against each other? Because eventually, the finish line is going to come one day, right in front.
