About Saritha

Bio

I'm Saritha, a grade 12 student of G.D.Mat.Hr.Sec.School, Coimbatore. I love dancing, singing, reading and writing. I write only non-fiction articles. I am a Bharathanatyam lover and dancer. I am an English teacher at Make a Difference, India and volunteer at social service organizations like i-change, which was founded by a TedxYouth speakerWhen I grow up, I dream of running a school that imparts quality education to children and makes learning interesting and fun.

Languages

English, Tamil, Telugu

An idea worth spreading

Teaching is called a noble profession by all. I wish to spread the idea of how schools can improvise on the holistic development of children and make learning fun. They must not go by what's there in the book alone.

I'm passionate about

Bharathanatyam - its something I took up as a hobby but now, I want to pursue it as a performing art. That is my passion, my love. It's sad to see the rate of its decline and I just wish to stop that.

Talk to me about

You can talk to me about Bharathanatyam because it is something I am really interested in. I can also talk about my ideas to make studying interesting and fun and about different voluntary services.

People don't know I'm good at

People don't know that I'm good at portrait photography.

Why not have schools and universities ALL OVER THE WORLD where you can pick and choose only the subjects that you are interested in?
Dear Ms. Kearney, Thank you for your reply! I am stuck in a similar situation too. I would like to pursue my career in dancing after I am done with my high school. But now, in high school, I am in a class where I have to learn high standards of Economics, Commerce, Business Mathematics and Accountancy when I have no plans of doing anything related to Business later on. Like mentioned earlier, I don't mean to say that I shouldn't have any knowledge in the subjects. All I say is that the education system could be in such a way that I am let to do an intensive study in dancing and know the basics of the other subjects in high school. But yes, this kind of system, I feel, does not need to be followed in Elementary or Middle schools! In that stage of schooling, children must learn their sciences, history and geography so that they will have at least basic knowledge about what is around them or what people had to undergo in the past so that they'd be content with what they have! Thank you!

Dear Mr. Curt, Thank you for your reply! Through the question I asked, I don't mean to say that we should have knowledge only in the field we want to pursue. Yes, it is understood that one cannot do without knowing other subjects too. So, what I mean to say is that, we could not concentrate mainly on the subject we want to learn and just know the basics of the other subjects.

What , for you, is the best song ever made?
This is a Tamil song & is very meaningful. My favorite! Ovvoru Pookalume Solgiradhey.. Vazhvendral Poradum Porkalame. Every flower tells that life itself is a war. Ovvoru Vidhiyalume solgiradhey iravaanal pagal onru vandhidumey. Every morning tells that there is always a day after night. Nambikkai enbathu vendum nam vaazhvil. Latchiyangal nitchayam vellum oru naazhil. We need to have faith in out lives. Our aims will get fulfilled some day or the other. Maname, oh manamey ni maarividu. Mazhaiyo adhu paniyo nee modhividu. Heart please transform and fight for anything, whether it is rain or snow. Ullam endrum eppothum, udainthu poga koodathu. Our inner soul should never be broken, Enna intha vazhkai endru ennam thondra koodathu. The thought, "What life is this?" should never arise. Entha manitha nenjukkul, kaayam illai sollungal.. Tell me in which man's heart, there is no sadness at all. .. Vali Thaangum Ullam Dhaney Nileiyana Sugam Kaanum Only the heart that bears the pain can enjoy the happiness Yaarukillei Poraatam Kannil enna Nirottam Who has no battle to fight, tears in the eyes Oru Kanavu Kandaal Atha Dhinamuyandral Oru Naalil Nijamagum Dream, work and you'll achieve it. Vaazhkai kavithai vaasippom, vaanam azhavu yosippom. Let us sing the song of life, let us think beyond the skies. Muyarchi endra ondrai mattum, moochi pola swasippom. Let us breathe the one thing - Effort. Lacham Kanavu Kannodu.Lachiyangal Nenjoduu Lakhs of dreams, kept in the heart. Unnei Vella Yaarumilleu Uruthiyøda Pøraadu There is none to beat you, fight bravely. Manitha Unn Manadhai Kiri Vithai Podu Maramaagum Sow the seeds in your soul and it will become trees. Avamaanam Padutholvi ellamey Uravaagum. Sadness and loss will disappear. Thollvi Indri Varalaaraa. Dhukkam illai en Thozha. There is no history without sadness, there is no sadness, my friend. Oru Mudivirinthaal.. Athil Thelivirinthaal Antha Vaanam Vasamaaghumm if there is a decision and its clear, the skies will be your target.

Debate: Should public schools take on the responsibility for offering basic needs like food and health care to students and families?
Schools are a major influence on the students. Teachers are the students' role models. Schools are not only temples of learning but also are a home away from home where teachers only need to teach and look after the kids. Whereas at home, parents will be busy with office work and household chores. Some of them might not have the time to cook food for the children or take them for regular check-ups. So yes, the schools must take on the responsibility of offering basic needs like food and health care.
