What should we value - Uniqueness or Commonality?

I have observed that in many schools, good teachers put in a lot of effort into all children. They believe every child has some unique quality that sets him or her apart. Our good teachers expend all their efforts in trying to bring out those unique abilities.

But do we recognise that if we go beyond what is unique in all children, there is something inherently common to them all? Do we tell children about all the things that are actually common in them?

While it is true that every child has a special, unique quality, it is also true that some things are common to every child. The role of education is to bring out what is unique and to recognise what is common. I believe that the day all of our schools begin to identify all of the things common to each child, all conflicts will be over. Religious and caste differences will not matter. Peace in its real sense will be established.

  1. Sir, What you have done to improve DSSSB. We residents of Delhi also want Govt job



    I have approached many times and also mailed to all Delhi Ministers but no gain. I have filled a vacancy of post code 15/12 through DSSSB in 2012. Its first tier exam was conducted in 2015 and result came in 2016 and now I am just waiting for 2nd tier exam. I filled grievance against it at Delhi govt site and also written to PM but no improvement I found. Now DSSSB released a fresh notification on its website for a exam of some another post that was notified in 2007. It is taking exam after 10 years and I think it will give result next 10 years, then what will be the carrier of candidates anyone can easily guess.
