Solomon Pappaiya-Pongal Pattimandram

This pattimandram was telecasted on Suntv few days back.The special thing in this is,2 kids spoke in this. It was very nice to hear this very clear speech. They spoke equally to the experts like Raja and Bharathy baskar.Very happy to hear encouraging them.
Now,coming to my very favourite speakers, Raja and Bharathy baskar, as usual they are in the opposite teams. And they are fighting like cat and mouse. In this pattimandram, I like Bharathy baskar's speech very much. coz' her speech was like a counter attack to all the opposite team members' speeches.Her comments are always spectacular.
The topic of this pattimandran is,

"Indraya kalvichoozhalil adhigam avadhikkullavadhu yaar?
"Petrorgala? Pillaigala?"

In English,

Who is suffering the most due to today's education? Parents? or Kids?

I think this is a very useful topic for the educational situation today.
My opinion is, both parents and kids are suffering. Parents are suffering due to the unusual school fee hype and kids due to the overload of the syllabus.What we study in the book doesnt seem to help us in our real life. We need to change this first. And the fees, now-a-days, education has become the costliest thing we buy for our kids. If this is not stopped, only multi-millionaires can make their children study at schools. I 've heard many people say this. Listen to the Pattimandram and enjoy..

Thenkachi Ko.Swaminathan- about listening

Some of my friends questioned me about my caption (Enjoy the sense of Listening) under my blog's name.
Their doubt was in the word 'Listening'.They said that instead of the word Listening, I should use the word 'hearing'. But my opinion is..Hearing is like just passing by. On other hand, Listening is like analysing the matter. Now, there is a lot of difference. Isn't it?

But, If I say this, most of the people may not accept.Let us listen to what our favourite Thenkachi Ko.Swaminathan(Indru oru Thagaval,All aindia Radio and Sun tv fame) said. He explains the what hearing and listening are and the difference between these. We can understand clearly how much important and valuable listening  is.

He says about the steps in listening.

1. Hearing
2. understanding and
3. feedback.

So,hearing is the first step in listening. But in further,we should analyse the matter we heard.
Then we have to convey this to another person. This step shows us how clearly we observed the message.

And in the end he finishes the session as usual with a short but sweet joke .

Listen to Thenkachi Ko. Swaminathan ayya's speech about listening..
And Enjoy ur sense of Listening always..
