A Cup of Tea- The Power of Education


Today, I was scrolling my Facebook timeline and saw a video shared by Manisha. That video was just two and half minutes. It was shared on The Creativity India facebook page. Jitendra Rai a short film creator had made that film. The title was "A Cup Of Tea." 

But the movie is not about the love for tea or nothing about the tea. It was a duty and a special for the society. At the beginning of the video, a girl may be from some outside came near to a village by boat and was capturing a photo of a little boy and then that boy took his bag and started to run. Then that lady also follows him but couldn't catch him. She couldn't able to run towards him, but that boy intentionally used her to run after him.

She ran through a forest and crossed some people also and asked some people to catch that boy, but no-one catches him. She then entered the village area and then crossed some houses and reached a place, where she found a welcome board for her and that boy was there. The welcome message was written on a small blackboard, where some other children with some elder people were present with the study materials. They want to study, but no-one was there to teach them. That's why that little boy used her to run after him and should know about their problem.

She reached there with an anger within her and saw that boy as well as others. She looked the surroundings where she found everyone needs her as a teacher. But that little boy made her run and she had lost some energy. At that time, an old lady offered her a cup of tea putting that on a slate, which she might use to practice the letters. 

How someone could refuse to a cup of tea and that was on the behalf of a number of people in that village. That cup was not filled with tea only, that was filled with their love. The love for their teacher and the love towards education. How an educated person kicks the someone's love for the education. So, she also took that cup from the old lady and teach them.



Might be she left that place, but some would come next, to teach them and to guide them. Education is important to become something in life. It would definitely change the world someday. Yes, those people have the potential to become educated and they would become one. Because education does not only lie on the certificates, it lies within us.
