TRIVANDRUM MINI KAIZENS CAMP 2015
Let me start with words of Mahatma: Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.
This is what altians teach us. Mini-kaizen camp held at st.shantals school was like reliving my entire past life once again with full of joy, peace and love. From the moment I made decision to attend the camp i was feeling a positive energy even though my parents were not happy at first on my decision. But in each and every second of the past two days i was experiencing altius. On 25/1/2015 morning we had an introduction class held by vipinettan and vishnuettan, later priyadas sir too joined to share his views and smile. After than they opened a door, to the magical world. At first it was chandrahasan sir taking us to the world of competition in assistance with gopikeechi. Even though i dont remember the entire class but the story which he told us about A R Rahman and Ilayaraja sir.Next it was suresh babu sir who taught us who s a leader, how to be a leader, and what is a leader. Then we had session of vijayalekshmi mam about how to be with the society, how to make ourself and our society good. Next it was Babu paul sir who shared his experiences , answered all our questions with a smiling face. The day came to an end .
The next day arrived , morning we had an interactive session with priyadas sir congratulating our mendors and seniors, also sharing their experiences. After that we were split into 3 groups and we had a group discussion on the topic corruption.Then we had a session on malayalam literature, then our seniors alen and chadru was sharing their views about spirituality and a book named the monk who sold his ferrari. At last the camp came to an end.
This was the first time in my entire life i am attending sessions from morning till night without feeling sleepy. It was such a great experience. From the starting of the camp i started felling change in myself. Jessy aunty such a busy lady was waiting for my arrival. I was just surprized and happy. She taught me that when we share our valuable time for someone what we get in return is happiness, the priceless gift of god. Yesterday my guardian angels showed me that altians will be always with us for every good deed that make others happy, we shared republic day wishes with the traffic police officers.
Yesterday morning in our journey to camp i met a grandma. She was too old and lean. On my conversation with her i realized that she was earning by selling vegetables becauss she had no one to lookafter.she had a house ,her daughter died. I asked many things but i never saw a smile on her face. When we were to get out of the bus, i said bye and kissed her. I dnt know how to express my happiness ,she smiled at me. Altius i saw your kindness in her smile. If ever in her life she rembers me its the success of altius.And later in the afternoon on my return journey i was accompanied by my seniors, they were sharing their experiences & thoughts. When i reached my house all was the same as usual , room was not clean , foul smell . Everytime when i return from home to hostel i use to murmer why is this room like this, why such a bad smell like that. But yesterday i was not the old version of jishna befor the camp. I felt a pleasant fragments in my room eventhough my room was not clean i was not angry , for the first time in my hostel life i found beauty in my room, my bed, in the mirror. Eventhough it was the same mirror i use to look everyday, i found a new smiling face with a great positive impact.
Thanks altians, thanks a lot for filling fragments to what i smell, beauty to what i see, and an iternal love in me. I swear that i will be an altian and try my best to make the world a heaven. I believe that its god who created a door to heaven and named it altius. Dear altians let us try to be the guardian angels.
Now my brothers and sisters pardon me if my mail is too long and boring. This is my first experience writting a report, but i promise that i will improv next time. Let me conclude with the slogan of an altian- Let me be kind, joyful, peaceful and loving.
With unconditional love,
