A Spot of Idealism

Blogger Shadakalo brings to our attention idealist teachers who have made a difference in their students' lives. Please read here. Truer words have rarely been said.

I was taught a story in primary scool in the Bangla text book Amar Boi. It goes like this: the Prophet once showed a beggar how to become a woodcutter and thus ensured that the man could sustain his life. Sustainibility is everything. When you help in someone's education, you help them become sustainable.

So listen to Shadakalo. Idealism might be dead, but its long shadow provides relief to a lot of people.
