    Suppose you are one of the volunteers who went to the Andaman and Nicobar Islands for relief work after the Tsunami.

    Who in your views is an "unusual learner" in 'The Treasure Within'? What can schools do to draw out the best in unusual learners?


    31st December, 2004
    The killer Tsunami struck these islands five days ago. But the victims are being brought in even now.
    Each one has a story to tell. I met Alma Javed, a girl of ten, who was still traumatised with the incident.
    The little girl does not want to talk about it with anyone. I saw one elderly man showing fatherly affection to Alma. He too had lost his family members. He was the only survivor from his family.
    Another girl Meghna, 13 years, is still in a daze. As she had to spend two days floating in the sea, holding on to a wooden door. It was an unbearable sight. There were many people who had lost their body parts in this disaster. But life has to go on. Every person was trying to console the other and lessen his own pain. I admire and applaud their grit and determination with which they are trying to lead life afresh.                                                       
    There are many examples/exceptions which can be quoted as ?unusual learners?. One of such unique example is of Mr. Hafeez Contractor who lived life in his own style. He defied learning yet imagined in his own peculiar way where he felt comfortable. He could easily judge his clients by their facial expressions, dress code and relate to them similarly. He possessed will power to achieve something and had confidence in himself which helped him to gain heights in success.
    The schools can instruct their teachers to give extra care to these type of unusual learners? through activities like debates, drawing competitions, seminars, discussions, writing and elocution competitions, drama competitions to enhance and evoke their inner feelings, thereby revealing them in front of the whole world.
