My Daughter

A man returned home late from work, irritated and fully tired, and to his surprise he found his little daughter waiting at doorstep for him.

By seeing him his daughter started the conversation like:

Daughter: “Dad, may I ask you something?”

DAD: “with anger moaned, tell me what is it?”

Daughter: “tell me how much do you earn an hour?”

DAD: “You have no business to ask this, why are you asking this to me?”

Daughter: “I just want to know. Please tell me, how much do you earn an hour?”

DAD: “If you must know, I make Rs 200 an hour.”

Immediately the little girl said, “Daddy, can you please lend me Rs 100?”

The father was furious and replied, “You just waited for me to ask some money from me to buy something silly, idiot, get back to your bed and sleep”.

The little girl quietly went in her room and shut the door. After about an hour or so, the man had calmed down, and started to think: Maybe there was something she really needed to buy as she really didn’t ask for money very often. The man went to the door of the little girl’s room and opened the door.

“Are you asleep, dear?” He asked.

“No dad, I’m awake,” replied the daughter.

“Am sorry, I was too hard on you earlier,” said the man. “It’s been a long day and I took out my anger on you. Here’s the Rs 100 you asked for.”

The little girl sat straight up, smiling and yelled “Oh, thank you dad!” and reached,  under her pillow and  pulled out some crumpled rupee notes and started counting the money.

The father shouted “Why you want more money when you already have some?”

The little girl replied “Because it is not enough,”

And she ran towards her dad and asked, “Daddy, Can I buy an hour of your time tomorrow? Here is Rs 200 so please come home early tomorrow. I would like to have dinner with you.”

So what are the take aways from the story?

– Work is holy – but not wholesome – FAMILY is also crucial!

Don’t take those close to you, for granted. You might wake up one day and realize that you have lost a diamond while you were too busy collecting stones!

The Mysore Dasara Experience

Dasara is as big as ever in the heritage town of Mysore. The whole city unites with the spirit of the festival; buildings and main roads are beautifully decked up with lights, creating an atmosphere of colours and festivity.

Dasara is the main tourist attraction during the year, and the city hosts a variety of events, starting from exhibitions, fares, food and film festivals, to adventure sports, concerts and many more activities.

The Mysore Palace, which stands in all its glory, sees tourists pouring in, this time around. It is quite a breathtaking sight when it is illuminated at night. The highlight of course, is the Dasara procession that takes place on the tenth day of the festival, which is a very grand event, and is witnessed by a huge gathering.

The Government has also taken a lot of steps to support the festival of Dasara. Their online web portal serves as a very efficient information source for aspiring visitors. Police help-desks are set up at many parts of the city; and every building, starting from the smallest tea shop, is seen distributing sweets to people around, giving the festival a very warm, cordial feel.

We spoke to our dealers in Mysore, the Mysore Tractor Company, about how they celebrate Dasara in their office. During the festival time, the salesmen and mechanics unite and perform Ayudha Pooja to each tractor in their dealership, Apart from this, they also decorate the office on these days. Employees are given  half a day off on Ayudha Pooja and a holiday on Vijayadashmi. 

Overall, the Mysore Dasara is certainly a special occasion to witness and experience!

TAFE Young Achiever Monisha The Inventor

TAFE System Admin R&D M.Mayamurugan’s daughter, M.Monisha, was part of a team from Kaligi Ranganathan Montfort Matriculation HS School which has devised a system that could improve road safety by a considerable margin.

They have come up with a system that would set off a chain of light and sound effects to alert police incase drivers pick up their cell phones while on the road. Monisha and her friends were inspired to act on this after witnessing and hearing about many accidents that have been caused by drivers who get distracted by phone calls while on the road.

We salute Monisha and her friends for applying their minds towards a bright, safer future!
