my reflections on Kite Flying


DISCLAIMER: This is a ‘voluntary’ assignment to add to many reflective submissions I have survived so far. Please do not consider it for grading!

No matter how much I would like to attribute the following ‘insights’ on the pulsating light visualized during repeated Yognindra sessions, my skeptical friends would simply consider it random ramblings resulting out of too much exposure to the sun (and nothing to do with the golden glow!)

While I tried to share with UH the tricks of controlling a kite, I mentioned to her that when a kite is going downwards (or in the direction you do not want it to go), simply give it more rope (as opposed to the normal tendency of tightening the rope). It will soon reverse its course and come back. And Ahaa! It clicked to me that this is exactly the case when we deal with kids. The more you try to tighten the controls, the more they indulge in the acts you do not want them to. Simply give them more rope and they will come back to the ‘right track’.

The other insight was related to the professional life 🙂 This is what I casually remarked to MY when he was struggling to keep the kite under control (and even using its instability as an excuse of not handing the control over to SK) – “Just like the kite, organization strategies need continuous tweaking” (It is not just MY who has paid 10L to earn the rights of making analogies. Even I am on the same boat!)

Now, enough of my reflections. BN, why are you silent these days? If you are loosing your creativity then why don’t you join the YogNindra sessions? If you are struggling for topics, then may I suggest ‘Reflections on Autopsy’? 🙂

    Great job of reflecting on the kite flying. You have really unearthed some genuine gems. I am only wondering why you are not using your exemplerary nuerons that is on display here, to add value to all the kite flying that happens in class, in the name of class participation. We all would have got more worth for the 10L that we have plunked down…

    Keep it coming..Reflections and inspiration is your target segment and you have proved beyond doubt that you have no competition there…

    I am silent more because all the blog writing that I am doing currently are being submitted for grades and hence my creative juices are running dry. Have to either get back in the stream and write more or start putting my submissions on my blog site. 😉 Afterall, You can only write so much.

    Yognidra, I am doing enough already and that too in all possible poses if you know what I mean…:-)

    well what I can say…
    I bow to your superior reflections and inspirational insights.
    Now if only you could record some of the amazing stuff junior says and then reflect on that, it would be an audio-visual treat.

    I have a business idea for you – AM & you can OOPS out and start a kite flying teaching school, remember the “taught kite flying to 70 CEOs” stuff 🙂

    p.s-This is a moment of personal accomplishment and ROI for my 10 l.
    I have appeared in both the blogs 🙂
