Sreepur Village,Where are you taking me?

Sreepur village started as a joke. I managed to convince myself, that I will be a traveler and joining SPP will give me a reason to travel. I Failed. I branched out my emotions, and I lost it completely.
Sreepur village is now the biggest dilemma on my life. In one hand, I love my work as an educator. Socializing with different kinds of people, accompanying people who belongs to different cultures and offers whole lot of stories to share. I enjoy every moment of it. The passion I feel dancing in my vine- is undoubtedly, priceless.
On the other hand, Negativity of few people gets on my nerve. I feel frightened. I feel suffocated.
It’s a weird case you know. The cheapness of human being has always puzzled me. I’m not saying I’m a saint. But my conscious, my guilt has always taken superior position on my life’s decision. Perhaps this is why, I got hurt so easily. I love to believe the greatness of human being, and when they do not choose to walk that way, I feel perplexed.

Sreepur village: one glimpse and few thoughts

1. What am I doing in a village?
 I have recently left my job in esho and joined Sreepur team. They told me, as a linguist I’ll be responsible for Sreepur children’s English language development. …well…. I gotta admit my language skill  is confusing (I’m a lefty! for me the whole idea of right to left seems wrong!:( ) … so I guess I will  try to learn from the children instead of teaching them.

2. Not so warm welcome!
I have recently finished my introduction phase and few staff I met has already warned me about Sreepur’s internal politics. They warned me about gossiping, and inside competitions amongst staff members. It’s sad how some people always tend to see the glass half empty!

3. The silver lining.
The bright side is Sreepur children are very kind hearted and they welcomed me with open wide arms. Sometimes I sit quietly in the preschool and wait till the end to receive a group hug from all of them-and it’s the best feeling in the whole world!

Leaving a job harder than a breakup!

This is the story of how my "blog life" begins and how it affected my life.

I opened my blogger account almost a year ago.It was just a whim. I was tired of facebook and tumblr, and decided to try out blogger.I posted  some meaningless articles,believing nobody will ever read it. Then very slowly people started to follow my blog (some even left comments!) but i was still convinced that blogger is just a place to hide my online-self.

But more often then not,Things do not work out as we want to.So whilst in a job interview, me with my big mouth told the interviewer about this blog With the hope of never hearing from them again….and that’s how I started my jouney with Esho.
