Hello everyone!, In case you’re wondering who is the lunatic behind https://tryigniteaspark.wordpress.com.
My Mother wanted me to stay home, My Father wanted me to be a hairdresser, My Grandma wanted me to be a doctor, My Grandfather wanted me to be me.
And I wanted to be a million different things growing up, a doll, a teacher, a doctor, a fashion designer, an air hostess a babysitter, a prime minister. But in the background was always one consistent dream.
I dreamt to ignite smiles.
So yeah, Now I am in college, and on the side trying to live my dream.(even in the littlest way)
Going through my blog, I think it needs more life.
Well here goes…

The cycle of poverty is the “set of factors or events by which poverty, once started, is likely to continue unless there is outside intervention. Therefore when people have basic life and literacy skills, economies grow more quickly and poverty rates decline. Children who have the opportunity to learn are able to eventually earn more money and support their own families.The better-educated a person is — and the more education they get, the more likely they will avoid poverty and crimes.
Teaching in today’s world is made to look hard and cumbersome and not for the common man, But when you strip the false pretences of teaching in this world, You realise teaching is simple strategy. Basic knowledge and a heart.
I wonder did Albert Einstein’s mother have a BA or PhD to nurture the biggest brain in history ?.
It’s raining out of my window, not the thundering type rain but the sad trickling type of rain. Sitting on my bed going over my day, Thursday’s are always down days for me but in the end maybe in a month, a year, a ten years or maybe even a hundred years I know I will smile. Every Thursday morning I volunteer to teach English and basic manners to little kids at a local poverty ridden school. The sheer poverty and struggles of these little children are unbelievable. How many of you get only one meal a day?, how many of you wear dirty torn clothes?, how many of your parents sit on the muddy streets selling coconuts?.
But all they do is give a smile that could light up the whole world.
How am I supposed to smile back when all I want to do is sit down in a drain and cry?.
