Who is our ideal in school? Our teachers, right? Our mum is our first teacher and thereafter, we have different teachers in different grades at school. Friends, do you know about the importance of a guru or a teacher in our life? Let’s find out…
Take a bowl and fill it with water up to two-thirds its capacity. Drop a paper clip into it and observe what happens.
Now remove the paper clip from the bowl. And tear a piece of tissue paper three times bigger than the size of the paper clip.
Drop the tissue gently onto the surface of the water so that it floats on the top. Place a paper clip gently onto the tissue paper without touching the water or the tissue.
Use the round ends of the pencils to push the tissue down towards the bottom without hitting the paper clip.
Observe the paper clip.
The paper clip immediately sunk when dropped in water. However, with the use of tissues, the paper clip was able to float on the surface of the water.
Suppose that the paper clip represents people.
The surface of the water represents world
The tissues represent gurus or teachers.
A teacher or a guru is important to stay afloat and progress ahead in our life. What happens when one does not have one? It is easy to sink down, just like the paper clip, in the experiment. Hence, if one has the guidance of a teacher or a guru, it is easier to sail through and move ahead in our life.
