Every person aim to be Creative! Women with more leisure in their homes find more creative outlets with an art form called 'Needlework'. This needlework is today out of place in many homes and kids no longer learn the simple stitches of needlework nor any form of creativity out of it. There were days in my school when Ms.Ludvina, our Needlework class teacher use to pinch us so hard, just because we did not do our needle stitches accurately. Nevertheless, today I feel that if she was not there, I would not have learnt how to do embroidery, take the creative stitches, knit a sweater or make those cross stitch frames and table mats, etc. 

Most of the schools today teach the kids how to write poetry, how to compute but miss out the patience teaching Needlework. When I recently took this class, the kids learnt how to use a needle, how to put the thread in the needle and actually learnt how to take stitches and did a cross stitch mat. 
What I feel is Needlework class taught them:

1. Concentration
2. Accuracy
3. patience
4. Using common sense
5. Feeling of being creative
6. How to help others
7. Engage in a useful activity
8. Get more organised
9. How to keep silence

Most of all, it's all about being Creative, gives newer ideas and teaches 'Perfection'. So, if you are missing out on these skills, do encourage creativity and let it flourish. Unleash Creativity.

Recently, I read a Bizarre! A prisoner sues God! A Romanian prisoner is suing God for failing to save him from the Devil. The inmate, named as Pavel M in media reports, accused God of 'Cheating, abuse and traffic of influence.' The inmate argued that his baptism was a contract between him and God who was supposed to keep the Devil away and keep him out of trouble. He believed he was left in the hands of the Devil. The complaint was sent to Timisoara Court of Justice and forwarded to the prosecutor's office. However, they said that it would probably be dropped and they were unable to subpoena God to court.

My, jove, God must be wondering - Where's the Hell, what's heaven for! Btw, here's my article 'Computing for kids-Is it safe?' translated into Romanian language. I can't read Romanian but if you do, let me know whether this article has been useful to you or not. Also pass on the words in Romanian for me - I'll learn to read Romanian! Enjoy!

There is an old Latin tag: “Non schola sed vita discimus” means, We learn not for school, but for life."

No longer is this applicable because neither teacher nor student takes it seriously. Educational systems require reform. It also stresses the responsibility of knowledge where ‘knoweldge is power.’ Moral education has fallen into disrepute. Knowledge and knowledgeable people have to take responsibility to safeguard the morality in education. Education fuels economy and shapes society and is the key factor one should remember.

Three hundred years ago, Descartes said, “I think, therefore I am” but now technology changes minds and one can say, “I see, therefore I am”. However, I end with the logical thinking: “I keep myself aware and informed with technology and new sweeping waves of changes and therefore, 'I AM'” – Education without experience and exposure is incomplete, after all!
