The Happy Wanderer

April 30, 2015 Leave a comment

What’s your travel style? Are you itinerary and schedule driven, needing to have every step mapped out in advance or are you content to arrive without a plan and let happenstance be your guide?

 

I am not much of a planner when it comes to travelling.  So sometimes I miss out on good deals. But there is fun in taking some risk and making last minute bookings.  I have done free-and-easy trips.  The fun is that you get to soak in the local sights and sounds, take the local transport and explore areas that you would not get to see if you are on a planned itinerary.  (Usually, guided tours only cover places of interest)

But if I am visiting a new country I do some planning to avoid hassles.  Many a times, I could not get flight tickets or a hotel by waiting too long to decide. A good tour guide with a knowledge of the local history, customs, monuments and cuisine can be of great help when visiting a new country.  He can make your journey enjoyable and you can learn a few things about the place.

I have a lot of places to explore and countries to learn about and I need to pack my bags soon! I have taken flights and buses and one thing  I would love to try is go backpacking on  some adventurous trips, treks and climbs with groups of people.

Describe your personal style, however you’d like to interpret that — your clothing style, your communication style, your hair style, your eating style, anything.
Photographers, artists, poets: show us STYLE.

Clothing; I love to dress casual except for a formal occasion. I also prefer light colours and not too shiny or glittery outfits. I like to dress according to the culture of the place where I am. So when I am relaxed and at
home I prefer bermudas and a t-shirt.

Communication style: I feel that the important thing is to make oneself understood. So I like to speak slowly, articulate my words and check with the listener on whether I have made my conversation clear.

Hair style: My hair is all combed backwards and it is easy to maintain this way.

Eating style: I am conscious of what I eat as it effects how I feel during the day. I prefer light, vegetarian food. I sometimes tend to eat at a fast pace and I am trying to take my time and enjoy my food. .

Parenting style: As a parent I am more of a friend and a guide. However, I do set some ground rules for my daughter. I feel that she should have the freedom to find her true nature and expression. So I only help her to balance her work time and free time so that she can develop a balance which will help her in future

Relaxing style: When I am on holiday I try to forget all about work and enjoy to the best.

Life style: I prefer a life of simplicity. I like to travel light. I have realised that there are many things we buy which we find we no longer need after some time. So I am thankful  to God for blessing me with all that I need and more.

Work style: At work I am focussed and sincere. I also love to work in a team and as a leader I love to empower my team to excel.

Learning style

December 9, 2013 Leave a comment

What’s your learning style? Do you prefer learning in a group and in an interactive setting? Or one-on-one? Do you retain information best through lectures, or visuals, or simply by reading books?
Photographers, artists, poets: show us LEARNING.

 

Reading books is the primary source of my information. In college I learnt in a group. The advantage of this method of learning is sharing, discussion and better understanding.

Today there is a wide range of information on the internet and self-paced learning is a reality. Moreover, higher institutions like MIT are also offering their classroom content free online. So there is no dearth of material for a keen student.

However, to really assimilate the knowledge that is learnt, one has to experiment and make mistakes.  This is the best way to imbibe knowledge and understand the fundamentals of a subject.   There is no substitute for ‘learning by doing’.

However, some content may not be verified to be authentic and one has to use one’s judgement when learning online.

Studying a new concept one-on-one is difficult as there is less room for questions and discussion. The most important requirement for learning is a blank mind with no preconceived judgements. This allows curiosity to flourish and questioning leads to better knowledge.

I have found that in a classroom there are children of all types. Some are relatively quiet and can listen. But there are children who are hyperactive and need active learning or exercises to stimulate their learning. So it is a challenge for educators to cater to a wide mix of students in a classroom and design the lesson so as to benefit everyone.
