We keep reading or hearing folks saying
" Unlearning is the new Learning."

But what exactly do they mean by this ? 🤔

A 🧵 based on my limited understanding & implementation of
Learning, Unlearning & Relearning.

*Pics are from the Internet.

Our learning process begins the day we are born & continues till the day we decay and die.

However consciously our learning is restricted to just a few quality years.
The rest is mostly sub(un)conscious.

Now therein lies the problem & the solution !
Interesting #Trivia

The subconscious mind goes beyond learning new skills. It basically stores our beliefs & determines and monitors when & what information must be sent to the conscious mind.

Ever observed how a child is not afraid of anything including 🔥 initially?🤔

Happy basant panchami

ॐ जय सरस्वती माता, जय जय सरस्वती माता।
सद्‍गुण वैभव शालिनी, त्रिभुवन विख्याता॥
चंद्रवदनि पद्मासिनी, ध्रुति मंगलकारी।
सोहें शुभ हंस सवारी, अतुल तेजधारी ॥ जय…..
बाएं कर में वीणा, दाएं कर में माला।
शीश मुकुट मणी सोहें, गल मोतियन माला ॥ जय…..
देवी शरण जो आएं, उनका उद्धार किया।
पैठी मंथरा दासी, रावण संहार किया ॥ जय…..
विद्या ज्ञान प्रदायिनी, ज्ञान प्रकाश भरो।
मोह, अज्ञान, तिमिर का जग से नाश करो ॥ जय…..
धूप, दीप, फल, मेवा मां स्वीकार करो।
ज्ञानचक्षु दे माता, जग निस्तार करो ॥ जय…..
मां सरस्वती की आरती जो कोई जन गावें।
हितकारी, सुखकारी, ज्ञान भक्ती पावें ॥ जय…..
जय सरस्वती माता, जय जय सरस्वती माता।
सद्‍गुण वैभव शालिनी, त्रिभुवन विख्याता॥ जय…..
ॐ जय सरस्वती माता, जय जय सरस्वती माता ।

So yesterday was #BasantPanchami.
While we reveled in festivities, let us spare a moment for to remember a young teenage boy, Hakeekat Rai who chose to embrace death instead of leaving his faith and converting to Islam, on a #BasantPanchami not very long ago.
Hakeekat Rai was the only son of a rich man, Bhagmal Khatri of Sialkot. He became a Sikh under the influence of his mother.
During Mughal rule, kids went to study Persian from Maulvis.
Hakeekat Rai also did so.
He was the only Sikh in a class full of Muslim students.
One day when the Maulvi had gone out, he got into an altercation with them after they insulted the Hindu Mother Goddess.

#BasantPanchami #Jammu
Basant, the Festival of Spring was celebrated with great enthusiasm in the Kingdom of Jammu Kashmir. The rich, the poor, Muslims, Hindus - all wore yellow turbans.
The women dressed in yellow from head to toe, whether they were young or old and all you saw was yellow in all directions.
It was not as if this was done on Royal Orders. People did so because they wanted to celebrate this Festival.

This post set us thinking.
#kumbh2019 #प्रयागकुंभ #Prayagraj is much more than these.
Made famous as 'siberian birds' - these are actually named Palla's Gull. They are NOT from Siberia @PrayagrajKumbh @uptourismgov @incredibleindia.
Now we are starting a new series - #kumbhbirds
This is one of the rarest birds of North India and it is a very splendid sight to see. This is found only near river banks.
Spotted at #Kumbh2019 #KumbhMela2019 #kumbhbirds
@ornithology @upecotourism @BirdWatchingMag @BirdWatchDaily @uptourismgov @PrayagrajKumbh @incredibleindia
Found mainly in the jungles some of these are often found near cities and often unnoticed by people. They are also called 'seven sisters' as they are often found in groups of seven.

#Tathya with Apoorvanand
In the context of the Sajjan Kumar conviction in the 1984 genocidal violence against Sikhs, we need to rethink about other incidents of violence that have happened in the country, says Prof. Apoorvanand.
We wish you a #MerryChristmas with the Christian Qawwals of Delhi.
"People look at me and wonder who I really am. I have only one answer for them. I am you," says Bernard Rufus, also known as Sahil Sufi Nizam, a popular singer of Christian Qawwalis.
