Can You Teach a Zebra Some Algebra?
Wisdom Tree; New Delhi, India; 8183283713 / 9788183283717; Softcover; New; 
This book asks what seems like a silly question—can you teach a zebra some algebra? You may in turn ask—what kind of a question is that? How can one teach algebra to a zebra? However, that is exactly what the education system that we have inherited is attempting to do. Teachers go on to teach a subject with very little knowledge of the real subject—the student. Our schools remind us of the story of a sports school for animals. Here the teacher is employed to train animals to compete for the Animal Olympics. The teacher looks at a rabbit and teaches it to fly. Then he gets hold of an eagle and forces the bird to run. The elephant is asked to swim and the tortoise is advised to practice a high jump. Finally, after fifteen years of training is over, the duck is declared the Olympic champion. Why? The duck can do a little bit of hopping, flying, jumping and swimming—a jack of all trades and master of none. Think of what’s happening in our schools today. Students, like the duck in the story are asked to do a bit of everything with no deep knowledge of anything. Yet, true education is about achieving mastery—it is about perfecting ourselves as a species. Each one of us was created in our unique human shape and form. We were not mass manufactured in a factory. Our mission in life is therefore to create and to give birth to our true genius—something that we are born to do.Printed Pages: 168. 106745

The Class Act: Learn. Teach. Be.
Wisdom Tree; New Delhi, India; 818328373X / 9788183283731; Hardcover; New; New; 
Every Chandragupta needs a Chanakya. Why? We all need our missing halves to fulfill us. The day needs the night to refresh itself through sleep. The night needs the day to awaken to the world of new possibilities. When you are immature, you want maturity to be by your side. When you are too mature, you need somebody adventurous and innocent to be with you to learn how to mature. When you have a restless Arjuna, you need the stabilising wisdom of Krishna. When you have a Krishna, you need an Arjuna to awaken and arise to act on that wisdom. So, these complementarities have to come together—like day and night; spring and winter. A teacher can bring that missing touch in the evolving life of a student.Printed Pages: 168. 106750
