  2. 2. Teacher’s Day message from our CoachWe did celebrate Teachers Day on 05 Sep and Rukmani has asked me to write a paragraph for theChamps Call for this month. I have never been a proponent of formal education and strict regimenof class room instructions which all of us have been subjected to during our school andcollege days. We live in rapidly changing times and I firmly believe that a receptive student isalways more important than a great teacher. A keen learner can easily search and will get theright answers in the vast repository of free information available to all on the Internet and itsrelated technologies. In the Indian education system, getting high marks is important forhappiness of our parents, but we as the students, need to learn to apply our knowledge to seeksolutions for our social, economic and national good. forLearning is a daily process especially in an organization like ours and the success will belong tous,us, provided we are the best in our field. Technology has provided us the level playing field with thedeveloped nations and this is our time to close the knowledge and skills gap that had existed overhundreds of years. We acknowledge this opportunity and will foster a learning environment wiconducive to life-long learning. Setting up of this kind of culture will require lot of hard work, life-quick learning and sharing of our knowledge with our teams, friends and peer group.The distinction in the conventional role of a teacher and a student has greatly blurred in the rolmodern times. We all need to wear two caps for our organizational good and growth - be willing teachers.learners and inspiring teachers.
  3. 3. This culture of collective sharing of knowledge will be easy to achieve provided we focus on following:-the following:- life- First and foremost, create a culture of life-long learning wherein the "student in us" is always looking to seek answers and the "teacher-in-us" is keen to share the glow of "teacher-in- team- knowledge with our team-mates. Build up on our written and spoken communication skills; and the best way for this to happen is to start practicing it today amongst our teams and groups. Communication is the glue that can hold the fabric of the organization together and is the biggest strength of a good teacher. Be good listeners and open up to new ideas, new policies, new people and new technologies. We cannot foster a learning environment unless we listen to all the people around us. Collaboration or sharing our knowledge and expertise is another skill needed for our collective success. Not only do we need to be open to learn new things, but we must also help others learn new things. To foster an environment where sharing and collaboration are valued is to recognize that learning is a two-way street. two-
  4. 4. Most importantly, trusting our colleagues is essential for our success. Without trust, peoplethere can be no empowerment of the people in your workplace; no delegation of thecritical tasks that give people choice and help build competence. Trust is createdthrough mutual respect, possessing the right skill sets, and a shared commitment tomutual growth. flourish "life-We and our country will flourish and thrive, the moment we decide to be "life-longlearners" and aim to celebrate each day of the year as "The Learners Day." --Your --Your Coach

Here’s how the Pizza was born…did you know???Modern pizza was born in 1889 when Queen Margherita Teresa Giovanni, theconsort of Umberto I, king of Italy, visited Naples.Don Raffaele Esposito, who owned a tavern-like place called Pietro IlPizzaiolo, was asked to prepare a special dish in honor of the Queens visit.Esposito developed a pizza featuring tomatoes, mozzarella cheese (a neverbefore used ingredient made from the milk of water buffalo) and basil -ingredients bearing the colors red, white and green for the Italian flag.He named it the Margherita Pizza, after the guest of honor.
