Teaching Through Experiences-contd.

One day Surya took his class to a Picnic in a bus. They had gone to a bird sanctuary.All of them were amazed to see different types of birds which they had never seen before.On their way back three militants stopped their bus at the point of gun. They made them to vacate the bus and flew in that bus.Surya and his eleven students and other staff members were in the middle of a jungle road where there was no or very little traffic.Surya told them not to worry and keep spirits high. They tried to contact Police on mobile phone but there were no signals. Seeing no other way, Surya directed all of them to march forward in a group in search of water, food and transport. Unfortunately,they ended up at an abandoned landfill where they heard loud and strange sounds. Scared, they thought, “we must disappear from here before the militants who were making these sounds get us.” After a while Surya told his students, “We must not run away like that. Let us find out what really the sounds are and who is making them because whether it is fear, sadness or happiness one must know its cause. Such a person will never be sorry for his actions. So, let us first locate the source of these sounds.”Carefully, Surya marched in the direction of the sounds and found a two feet broken Robot there. It was this Robot, which was making the sounds .But who could have thrown it in this landfill. Relieved, Surya began checking with the Robot and thought that there could be some message inside it. Surya checked the recordings of robot. He was disappointed to find no message in it. Yet he consoled his students on mobile saying no need to fear of these sounds.Surya came back with that Robot. All the students were thrilled to see such a huge Robot.“Let us not waste time”, Surya told them, “you should not be afraid of sounds of this lovely Robot. Let us march forward to reach a safe place”.After walking for two hours they were amazed to see a highway.“Let us wait for some transport to come,”Surya said. All of them sat on the roadside.Abruptly, Goshi cried, “look, a truck is coming.”Surya stopped the truck and requested the truck driver to carry them to the nearest bus stop. Truck Driver permitted them to board that truck but were scared to see that Robot. On boarding the truck they found lots of ammunition in that truck.Surya told his group to keep mum till they inform the police. He informed the police on mobile. Within ten minutes police jeeps encircled that truck. They arrested the truck Driver. He took police to the hideout of militants and got them arrested.

With their combined effort and presence of mind a big tragedy was averted. Wise men have always maintained that it is difficult to destroy even a weak man in a group but easy to destroy a strong man who is alone.
