Something amusing happened this afternoon. Apparently somebody who boasts of being an expert had nothing else better to do than to go 'lobbying' on his own personal crusade and I happened to be the lucky one to be 'granted' the 'honour' of being this person's target. However, I told the people in the discussion that I would not lower my dignity, nor lent respect to this idiocy by reacting . Why should I ? I have got better things to do and after all everything that was brought up smacks of personal attack from a simple mind.
I would rather be with my good friends, do my blogging and photography outside my teaching hours. Its healthier, cleaner and more beneficial.
I would rather continue to improve my computer skills ( especially when we are in an IT Technology based institution), learn the new and various technologies and use it in my profession. Time has changed. Everything has changed. As educationist we must realized that even the learning process has changed. I guess I do not want to be a dinosaur with jaded idea and trying to convince the learners to continually use words that they would probably never use throughout their working life---either as a an IT personnel or a business person or as managers !
So I told the people concerned, come what may--- I refuse to stoop that low to this person's level and be dragged into this comedy. .. My life has been and is too good to be wasted away on trivial petty dot..dot..dot. . Thanks but - no thanks.
